What would you do if you found out a beloved family member was responsible for an unspeakable series of crimes? That’s the hook of the director Peter Askin’s new horror-thriller A Good Marriage, an adaptation of the Stephen King novella, which arrives in cinemas and on VOD Oct. 3.

Is Reese Witherspoon the most fun actress in Hollywood right now? It sorta seems like it if you pay any attention to the Internet. The actress has always been likable in films like Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama, but recently she’s become a viral-video sensation due to leaked videos of herself in an elevator at May’s Metropolitan Costume Gala and weeks later singing onstage at a charity event with Kenny Chesney. Earlier this week, Witherspoon was filmed and photographed having a good ol’ time at a wedding event in Capri, Italy. Basically, the takeaway is that Reese is not only a great actress but the A-lister you most want at your event.
EW talked to the actress for this week’s Fall Movie Preview—Witherspoon appears in three movies this fall including the Oscar-buzzy Wild and produced the highly anticipated Gone Girl—about being caught on camera having a good time. “I have to say I am a lot of fun to hang out with,” says the Academy Award-winner, who admitted she had no idea these videos had become so popular. “People go, ‘You’re really fun!’ And I’m like, ‘Was I not fun before?’ I like to have fun and I enjoy it, man. I would wanna sit next to me at an awards show!”
Shia LaBeouf has not had the best of times since shooting David Ayer’s World War II movie Fury in the U.K. last year. In December, artist Daniel Clowes claimed the actor’s short film HowardCantour.com plagiarized his 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano, and in June, police led LaBeouf away in handcuffs from a Broadway performance of Cabaret because of his allegedly disruptive behavior.
But Fury writer-director David Ayer has nothing but nice things to say about the Transformers star, who voluntarily sought treatment for alcohol addiction following the Cabaret incident “He’s amazing, a freakin’ gifted guy,” says Ayer. “He’s one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. People are going to be shocked by how strong his performance is.” READ FULL STORY
When EW visited the London shoot of Paddington last year, everyone seemed thrilled that King’s Speech Oscar winner Colin Firth was voicing the film’s titular, marmalade-loving bear. “What we liked about Colin is that he’s got a bearish voice, he’s got a sense of humor, and he presents the very best of British,” explained producer David Heyman (of Gravity and the Harry Potter series). “We wanted that.”
The One I Love opens with a couple in therapy. Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss) have lost their spark, along with some trust, and are trying their best to figure things out. So when their therapist (Ted Danson) recommends going on an idyllic retreat that he credits with reigniting the relationships of many of his patients, Sophie and Ethan jump at the chance.
“When they get there, weird sh– happens,” first time director Charlie McDowell told EW after the film’s premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. To reveal any more would ruin the fun—but EW has a perfectly non-spoilery clip of the flustered couple debating whether to stay or leave the bizarre situation in which they’ve found themselves. Watch it below.
In the new Canadian horror movie Septic Man, Jason David Brown plays a sewage worker who falls into a septic tank and gradually mutates into a monstrous beastie. Brown won Best Actor in a Horror Film award at last year’s Fantastic Fest genre festival for his performance—but this gross-out film is not one to watch while you’re eating. Then again…
Director Adrián García Bogliano has yet to release his most recently completed film, the werewolf tale Late Phases. But EW can reveal that the prolific filmmaker has commenced principal photography on his next movie in Mexico City. The film is called Scherzo Diabolico and, according to the official release, it “brings Bogliano back from the supernatural realm to a wild black comedy about a bored and frustrated accountant who decides to kidnap a girl who will become his worst nightmare.”
Antonio Banderas has dabbled in science fiction with The Skin I Live In and the Spy Kids movies. But the Spanish actor goes full-on future-shock in his new film, Automata. Set half a century into the future, the film stars Banderas as an insurance agent who investigates cases of defective androids and, according to the official synopsis, “uncovers a truth that is far more complex than the make or model of any machine.”
In the 2011 comedy The Trip, British funnymen Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—playing themselves—entertainingly bickered their way around the north of England while reviewing restaurants for U.K. newspaper The Observer. The pair have now reteamed for a second course of quips, face-stuffing, and Michael Caine impersonations in the self-explanatory sequel The Trip to Italy.
On August 22, 1972, a man named John Wojtowicz attempted to rob a bank in Brooklyn to pay for his lover’s sex-change operation—at least, that is what has been long believed. The bungled heist would later inspire Sidney Lumet’s classic 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon, which starred Al Pacino as “Sonny Wortzik” and John Cazale as his fellow robber, Sal. Now, four decades on, Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren have made The Dog, a documentary which relates the real, incredible true story of that August day, and what happened to Wojtowicz afterwards.
