Terry Gilliam, James Franco, and Errol Morris are among the filmmakers who will premiere their new movies in competition at the 70th Venice Film Festival in late August, it was announced today. Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem (pictured above), which stars Christolph Waltz as a computer hacker close to cracking the code that explains humanity, is his first film since The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus in 2009. Franco directs himself in Child of God, an adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy novel, and The Unknown Known, Morris’ study of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfield, is the first documentary to ever compete in the main category at Venice.

Overall, there is a strong contingent of American filmmakers showcasing their movies, including David Gordon Green’s Joe, starring Nicolas Cage and Mud‘s Tye Sheridan, and Peter Landesman’s Parkland, the story of the colliding lives at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital in the days around the Kennedy assassination in 1963. Seven of the 20 films in competition are American or co-American productions. “The richness of American cinema at the moment is really extraordinary,” said Alberto Barbera, artistic director of the Venice Film Festival, “both from the indies and from Hollywood.”

Also in the main competition are Stephen Frears’ Philomena, starring Judi Dench, Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, with Scarlett Johansson, and Kelly Reichardt’s Night Moves, with Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard. Click here for the entire list. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Britt Robertson heads to 'Tomorrowland'; Plus, Max Greenfield, Gina Carano, and more

• Britt Robertson (Under the Dome) scored the lead in Disney’s Tomorrowland, alongside George Clooney and Hugh Laurie. The film — which will be directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and written by Bird, Damon Lindelof (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Entertainment Weekly’s own Jeff “Doc” Jensen — is about “a high school girl with an unconventional understanding of technology” who “is launched on a journey to reclaim her future,” according to a Disney press release. The movie is due December 12, 2014.

• Max Greenfield (New Girl) is officially back as Detective Leo! While the actor spilled the beans about his involvement in the upcoming Veronica Mars movie last month, director Rob Marshall sealed the deal in a Kickstarter backer email Thursday. “When I first reached out to Max about being in the movie, he said he’d do the movie for free and pay for his own travel,” Marshall wrote. “This is only one of the many reasons I love Max. It’s also why actors have agents. (Don’t worry, SAG! We are paying Max!)” Greenfield also recorded a video message for his fans before he started filming.

John Goodman on his 'Monsters' hit, working with George Clooney again, and a return to 'SNL'

For a ubiquitous character actor who’s been working pretty much non-stop for 30 years in movies and television — including a heralded nine-season run on Roseanne — John Goodman is in the midst of one of the most successful stretches of his career. His most obvious score is Monsters University, the Pixar prequel to the 2001 smash that opened this weekend with $82 million, making it the fourth biggest animated-film debut in history. Goodman’s blue-furred Sully reunited with Billy Crystal’s one-eyed, walking green-pea Mike for the story of how the odd couple first met in college — when Sully was a lazy BMOC and Mike was an overachieving go-getter intent on becoming the scariest of Scarers.

But then there’s also Goodman’s recent on-camera work, which has included supporting roles in the last two Academy Award Best Pictures winners — The Artist and Argo — as well as a scene-stealing appearance opposite Denzel Washington in last year’s Flight. Throw in upcoming roles in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis and George Clooney’s World War II drama, Monuments Men, and Goodman just might be on course for an elusive but long-overdue Oscar nomination. (See also: Barton Fink.) “Right now, I’m at the high point of the roller coaster, but it’s always going to dip,” says Goodman. “So I’m just out there trying to enjoy it while it lasts.”

'Gravity' trailer: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are stranded in space!

It’s been a long wait for anyone following the development of Alfonso Cuarón’s space thriller Gravity. The film, which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as astronauts on a Space Shuttle mission, was originally set to be released in November 2012, but despite years of buzz, it wasn’t until this week that some footage from the movie finally hit the web. Now, we have the film’s first trailer.

In the spot,  Bullock and Clooney bask in the striking view of Earth, while some soft piano and violin set the scene for the beautiful and serene surroundings — until everything changes. The space shuttle is destroyed while the two astronauts are on a spacewalk, and they’re left stranded in 372 miles above Earth.

We revealed last week that the ultra-secretive “1952” project George Clooney is starring in for Disney is actually called Tomorrowland, and photos of a box of miscellaneous … uh, stuff that supposedly inspired the film were tweeted by filmmaker Brad Bird and co-writer Damon Lindelof.

What’s in the box, (as a fellow once asked?)

Official Disney fan club D23 has posted some analysis via Disney archives director Becky Cline, exploring just what’s in the image, though they don’t seem to have access to sift through the actual box just yet.

Sandra Bullock/George Clooney drama 'Gravity' gets new release date

EW can confirm that Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity — a sci-fi epic starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney — will finally come to Earth Oct. 4, 2013.

The 3-D film, Cuarón’s first since 2006’s Children of Men, finds Clooney and Bullock playing astronauts who are stranded when their space station is damaged. Gravity was originally scheduled for a Nov. 21, 2012 release before being pushed back last May to avoid competition from blockbusters like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Skyfall.

With its new release date, Gravity will now be going up against the 3-D conversion of Revenge of the Sith, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel, and Paranoia, a thriller starring Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth.
