'The Giver': First Look at Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites in Lois Lowry's classic

Jeff Bridges has been trying to make Lois Lowry’s 1993 classic The Giver into a film for nearly 20 years. In that time, his kids became adults, his father Lloyd, who he’d wanted to play the Giver, died, and he got rejection after rejection from everybody in town till Harvey Weinstein came along.

“He said, yeah let’s go man,” laughs Bridges, who took on the role of the Giver and is serving as a producer on the film (out Aug. 15), which recently wrapped its Cape Town shoot. Australian newcomer Brenton Thwaites plays Jonas, a boy living contentedly in a seemingly perfect community of sterilized, controlled “sameness” till he is assigned to receive all the memories of history — sublime and evil alike — from the Giver (pictured above in the Library of Memory — a set specifically constructed for the film on location in an old factory in Cape Town).

'Edge of Tomorrow': Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt gear up for battle -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

When Emily Blunt met with Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman for the first time to talk about their upcoming sci-fi action movie Edge of Tomorrow, Cruise didn’t mince words. “Tom made it very clear,” Blunt recalls. “He was like, [intense Tom Cruise voice] ‘Em, this is going to be really hard. Listen: This is gonna be INSANE.’ [Laughs] So I think I was prepped for what was about to be physically the most grueling thing I’ve ever done — but ultimately one of the most exciting projects I’ve ever been a part of.” READ FULL STORY

Every love story has that one kiss fans don’t quickly (if ever) forget. For The Fault In Our Stars, it all takes place in Amsterdam.

'Jupiter Ascending': First look at Channing Tatum's albino warrior

In Jupiter Ascending, the Wachowskis’ latest futuristic sci-fi actioner, Channing Tatum plays a half-wolf, half-albino warrior because of course he does. Tatum’s character, Caine, is tasked with protecting Jupiter, an astrologically and genetically fated janitor played by Mila Kunis. This marks the Wachowskis’ first fully original screenplay since 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, following 2008’s Speed Racer and 2012’s Cloud Atlas. Warner Bros. released the first trailer for the film last month, but this image offers another glimpse of Tatum’s bleached hair and the prosthetics he has donned for the role.

Jupiter Ascending is currently slated to hit theaters on July 18.

'Barely Lethal' first look: Hailee Steinfeld goes 'Mean Girls' with guns

Espionage and high school both involve plenty of closely guarded secrets, group infiltration, and back­stabbing. But in the fall 2014 action comedy Barely Lethal, Hailee Steinfeld finds the switch isn’t so easy, playing a teen trained to be a ­government agent (by Samuel L. Jackson, no less) who opts out of globetrotting shadow operations in order to lead a normal life. “She treats high school like a ­mission,” says director Kyle Newman (Fanboys). “Her briefing is Teen Vogue, Seventeen, and everything from Mean Girls to Clueless.”

Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron find 'A Million Ways to Die in the West': See the first photo

And now for something completely different: Seth MacFarlane wrote and directed a western! Starring Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried… and himself!

A Million Ways to Die in the West, or Sausage Curls: The Movie, casts MacFarlane as Albert, a humble sheep farmer who finds himself humiliated when his girlfriend (Seyfried) leaves him for the dapper gent who runs their town’s local “moustachery” (Harris, natch). Luckily, he learns to find his courage when he meets a more age-appropriate love interest (Theron), the mysterious wife of an infamous outlaw.

Check below to see all four members of the film’s main love square in character. If we know MacFarlane — and we think we do — it’s safe to guess that this confrontation leads into a lavish musical number, right? (Perhaps an updated version of “The Farmer and the Cowman Should Be Friends”?)

'Transcendence': First Look at Johnny Depp's mind-melding techno-thriller

If the shot above looks exceptionally (or Inception-ally) familiar, it might be because it’s from the first film directed by Wally Pfister, Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer. In Transcendence, which hits ­theaters April 18, Depp plays a computer scientist (below) ­studying “the singularity,” the point at which artificial intelligence will surpass human intelligence. “It’s a very timely subject as we find we have to update the software on our cell phones before we can even make a call,” says Pfister. Depp’s character literally gets uploaded into the mainframe, becoming a ghost in the machine (above, with costars Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, and Rebecca Hall) after he’s attacked by anti-technology activists. It’s an out-there premise, even if the film’s star is looking uncharacteristically tame. “I don’t think we’ve seen him this way in a long time,” says Pfister, laughing. “Just a pair of glasses on and a pretty normal haircut.”

Greg Kinnear finds faith in 'Heaven Is for Real' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Heaven Is for Real may be a spiritual tale, but it’s not solely for people of faith.

Based on Nebraska Pastor Todd Burpo’s best-selling book, the film re-creates the true account of his young son’s insistence that he’s visited heaven. We Were Soldiers and Secretariat director Randall Wallace was tasked with bringing the tale to the big screen, which stars Greg Kinnear as Todd, Kelly Reilly as his wife Sonja, and newcomer Connor Corum as their son Colton.

“I’m amazed it got to me,” Wallace told EW of Burpo’s book. “I’ve been around churches all my life and I’ve been exposed to a lot of material that would be categorized as inspirational. Most of the stuff is anything but inspirational for me. But I found this story to have an incredible intrigue and emotional power,” he said. “It speaks to the cynic in most of us.”

EW got an exclusive first look at the film, which hits theaters on April 16, 2014.

'Madame Bovary' first look: Mia Wasikowska stars as Flaubert's tragic heroine

MADAME-BOVARY-01.jpg

Flaubert’s Madame Bovary is a timeless literary classic, but it’s been more than 60 years since Hollywood attempted a big-screen adaptation of the 1856 novel. French-born filmmaker Sophie Barthes, who last tackled Chekov in the critically-admired Cold Souls, is currently directing Mia Wasikowska and a cast that includes Ezra Miller, Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans, and Henry Lloyd-Hughes.

Wasikowska plays Emma, a beautiful French farm-girl with few prospects who marries a doctor (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) to secure her future. She tries to be happy in her new life — as a wife, as a mother — and when she can’t, she tries to pretend. Until she can’t any longer. She engages in several extramarital affairs that offer glimpses of happiness but ultimately further her despair.

In this exclusive first look photo, Wasikowska wears the 1,000-yard stare of a woman slowly suffocating in her life. The movie is being filmed in Normandy, France, where the novel is set.

If you want to get to the heart of Madame Bovary, click below to see a scene from Little Children, Todd Field’s marvelous 2006 movie with Kate Winslet, who played a modern-day character who shares Bovary’s plight. READ FULL STORY
