New 'Interstellar' TV spot clearly lays out the stakes

Christopher Nolan is famous—some say infamous—for building trailers and teasers that are their own dramatic narratives—red herrings that preserve the surprises of the actual full-length film. But the new TV spot for Interstellar, which opens Nov. 7, clearly establishes the stakes that previous clips have alluded to. “Your daughter’s generation will be the last to survive on earth,” intones Nolan’s good-luck charm Michael Caine to Matthew McConaughey’s good ol’ boy pilot. “Find us a new home.”

“You may have to decide between seeing your children again, and the future of the human race,” says Anne Hathaway’s astronaut, who joins McConaughey’s pilot on a hail-Mary mission to find an inhabitable planet. READ FULL STORY

'Interstellar' trailer: Matthew McConaughey has to save mankind -- VIDEO

interstellar-01.jpg

The first movie that comes to mind after watching the first revealing trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is Contact. No, Matthew McConaughey doesn’t play a hunky spiritual philosopher like he did in that 1997 film, but his hunky rural engineer has a special bond with his daughter not unlike the one shared by Jodie Foster and David Morse. This time, the roles are reversed, though, with the father rocketing through time and space.

In the clip, audiences finally learn the stakes driving Nolan’s latest movie, which he wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan. Basically, the Earth is running out of food, as environmental change seemingly has transformed the planet into a giant dust-bowl. “We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system… can help us,” says Michael Caine’s professor, who aims to recruit McConaughey’s Coop for a vital mission. “We’re not meant to save the world; we’re meant to leave it.”

We’ll have to wait longer to understand why McConaughey is chosen, but he reluctantly volunteers to be one of the interstellar astronauts (along with Anne Hathaway) sent into the void to save mankind. Will he make it back to his daughter, Murphy?

Anne Hathaway to present at Oscars

Joining previously-announced Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day-Lewis, Anne Hathaway will present at the Oscars March 2, the Academy announced today.

The previous year’s winners typically return to the Oscars as presenters; Hathaway won the Best Supporting Actress statue last year for her role in Les Misérables. Will she attempt to sing again during this year’s ceremony, perhaps rushing the stage while Idina Menzel performs from Frozen? Unlikely. What is likely is that the actress will be perfectly lovely as a presenter, but the next day everyone will still say Jennifer Lawrence did it better.

Casting Net: Anne Hathaway may play Robert De Niro's boss; Plus, Jack Black, more

• Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) is in talks to star alongside Robert De Niro in The Intern for director Nancy Meyers (It’s Complicated). Hathaway would play a high-powered executive who gets assigned a senior intern (De Niro). Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to the role when Warner Bros. signed on, but dropped out due to reported scheduling conflicts. After a quiet 2013 (release-wise), Hathaway can be seen next in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (Nov. 7). She also just enjoyed the premiere of Song One (release date TBD) at Sundance. [THR]

'Don Peyote' trailer: Dan Fogler, Anne Hathaway, and Josh Duhamel go a little nuts -- VIDEO

DON-PEYOTE.jpg

Tony winner Dan Fogler plays an ordinary man who goes a little crazy in the film Don Peyote. Fogler, who co-wrote and directed the film with Michael Canzoniero, stars alongside Anne Hathaway, Josh Duhamel, and Topher Grace, among others. If the trailer below is any indication, the movie is going to be one freaky trip.

Forgler plays Warren Allman, a typical oblivious everyman who is sent on an existential path of enlightenment. Warren is transformed into the shaman/prophet Don Peyote and sheds light on alternative lifestyles that work but have been buried by the decision makers to the detriment of our civilization. The movie takes a hard look at the current plight of humanity and begs of us all to take a second look at our own contribution. It makes us question which is better: maintaining the status quo or maintaining harmony with humankind, nature, the earth, and the stars?

Check out the trailer below before Don Peyote comes out in May:

Sundance 2014: Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway, and Lena Dunham lead the ladies to Park City

If the Sundance Film Festival has always been the place to discover tomorrow’s biggest stars in front of and behind the camera during the past 30 years, it seems to have become even more fruitful in recent years. From young filmmakers like Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), and Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) to ready-to-launch superstars like Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Dane DeHaan (Kill Your Darlings), Hollywood has quickly found its future in the snowy peaks of Park City. “One of the biggest changes in the last 30 years is how independent film has become such a vital part of the cultural landscape now,” says Sundance director John Cooper. “It’s no longer an outside-Hollywood thing. It’s its own art form, and we’re feeling the power of that and the surge of that as we move forward.”

Put another way, though, independent film is no longer just for aspiring filmmakers and undiscovered actors. Yes, it’s still the place where unknowns arrive with hopes of becoming the next Felicity Jones or Lee Daniels. But it also represents opportunities for established superstars to play, to flex dormant muscles, and to reinvent themselves. Among today’s announcement of Sundance’s 2014 Dramatic and Documentary competitions, as well as its NEXT section — which highlights digital filmmaking with an eye on tomorrow’s storytelling techniques — were films starring Kristen Stewart, who plays a conflicted Guantanamo Bay prison guard in Camp X-Ray; Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, who plays the sister of a comatose musician in Song One; and Saturday Night Live alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader reuniting to play distant twins in The Skeleton Twins a drama!

Sundance wouldn’t be Sundance, though, if it were just its rich and famous alums coming back to play. “I was particularly proud watching Catching Fire and sort of remembering Winter’s Bone and remembering Jennifer Lawrence at the festival as a young actress, seeing what she was going to become,” says Cooper. “There’s some great discoveries that I think are going to come out of this festival, too.”

In fact, Cooper and Sundance’s director of programming Trevor Groth think this year’s crop of films — culled from more than 12,000 submissions and including 96 world premieres — is the deepest and most polished slate in history. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Helena Bonham Carter cast as Cinderella's fairy godmother; Plus, Anne Hathaway, more

• Helena Bonham Carter will play the part of the fairy godmother in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella. According to reports, this is a slight re-imagining of the classic character and will find Bonham Carter in disguise as a beggar at first. In the oh-too-predictable version of the world, Bonham Carter would have been the wicked stepmother, and Cate Blanchett would have been the fairy godmother. Whether it’s Branagh, Disney, or the actresses (especially Bonham Carter) looking to branch out a little, we’re pleasantly surprised by the news. The project is set to begin its shoot this fall in London.

'Don Jon' trailer: Love, porn, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt -- VIDEO

What do you care about most in life? In Don Jon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Martello (Gordon-Levitt) leads a simple existence. He’s got his own hierarchy of needs: “My body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, and my porn.” And it seems to be working out pretty well for Don, until he meets Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) — the bombshell of his dreams with a Jersey accent to match.

The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival under the title Don Jon’s Addiction where EW described it as “an improbably entertaining and kind-hearted comedy about a specimen of New Jersey manhood.” Take a look at the first trailer for the film after the jump. It has a clubby, manic, fast-paced vibe that draws the viewer in, before slowing down and hitting the punchline — that porn may be a deal breaker for the romantic comedy-obsessed Barbara. Tony Danza and Julianne Moore co-star in the comedy, which even features a fake movie-within-the-movie starring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway.

Keira Knightley in talks to replace Anne Hathaway in 'Laggies'

A wedding isn’t the only exciting news for Keira Knightley fans this week: The actress is in negotiations to play the female lead in the dark comedy Laggies, according to a rep for the film. The independent production, written by first-timer Andrea Seigel and directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister), tells the story of a young woman who reacts to her boyfriend’s marriage proposal by pretending to go on a business retreat while she actually hunkers down with a new 16-year old  friend (Chloë Grace Moretz). Anne Hathaway was originally on board for the lead but had to depart due to scheduling conflicts with her next project, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar.

Knightley, 28, has a mix of small and big-budget films on her docket, including the Kenneth Branagh-directed Jack Ryan (co-starring Chris Pine) and the indie Can a Song Save Your Life? by writer-director John Carney (Once). The actress married musician James Righton in a small ceremony in France on Saturday. (A rep for Knightley did not immediately reply to a request for comment.)

Casting Net: Anne Hathaway may re-team with Christopher Nolan; Plus, Jim Carrey, 'Kung Fu Panda 3,' more

• Anne Hathaway has her Academy Award. The Hathahaters have moved on. She’s already lined up a Lynn Shelton indie. What’s her next move? A Christopher Nolan blockbuster “interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding” of course! The Les Miserables actress is in final talks to reunite with her Dark Knight Rises director for his highly anticipated and annoyingly secretive film Interstellar, based on the theories of theoretical physicist (and time travel enthusiast) Kip Thorne. Matthew McConaughey has signed on to play the male lead in the film, which has already set a November 7, 2014 release date. Despite Hathaway’s diverse resume of musicals, rom-coms, rom-drams, teen flicks, and comics, she hasn’t tackled the sci-fi world yet, making the possibility even more exciting. [Deadline]

Jim Carrey has decided to join the comedy Ricky Stanicky, after a reported year of negotiations. The title refers to the name of an invented scapegoat for a group of troublemaking friends. What started out as a teenage joke continues into adulthood, though, until their significant others insist on meeting him. Instead of coming clean, they hire someone to be Stanicky. Carrey’s Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls director Steve Oedekerk will helm the Summit Entertainment feature. According to the report, James Franco was originally attached to star, and Joaquin Phoenix was in consideration as well. [THR]
