Audiences didn’t get a chance to see the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending this summer when it was pushed from its July 2014 release date into February. But now fans of the brother-sister duo can be satiated with a new trailer for the film that looks to be a wacky ride featuring Channing Tatum as a “half-wolf, half-albino warrior,” Mila Kunis as unlikely royalty, and Eddie Redmayne as a wonderfully hammy actor, apparently.

Fans of Lana and Andy Wachowski will have to wait a little bit longer to delve into the probably dizzying mythology of Jupiter Ascending. Warner Bros. has bumped the sci-fi spectacle from a long-scheduled July 18 release to Feb. 6, 2015, EW confirmed Tuesday.
Starring Channing Tatum as a “half-wolf, half-albino warrior” and Mila Kunis as a janitor whose perfect genetic makeup threatens the reign of the Queen of the Universe, the story kicks into gear when the Queen attempts to have her assassinated. Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne and Gugu Mbatha-Raw also star in the film, which has already debuted a number of trailers. Check out the latest one after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Paul Haggis, Oscar-winning writer and director of films like Million Dollar Baby and Crash, sticks with romance in his latest, Third Person.
The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Moran Atias, and is set in New York, Rome, and Paris. Everyone is paired off, and everyone is connected — think Love Actually, but dramatic. (Or Crash, minus racism?)
The film doesn’t have a release date for the U.S. yet, but premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the trailer below:
You don’t live in New York City without harboring at least a little frustration.
Robin Williams’ character in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn has a laundry list of reasons why he doesn’t love NYC, which you may have gathered from the film’s title. But when he’s in a car accident and suffers a brain aneurysm, his outlook on life changes — mainly because a flustered doctor (Mila Kunis) improperly tells him he’s got 90 minutes to live. The prognosis sets Williams on a wild escapade through Brooklyn as he tries to make amends with the friends and family he alienated over the years. Here’s the trailer:
Mila Kunis’ character Jupiter Jones may clean toilets for a living, but she also poses a threat to the reign of the Queen of the Universe thanks to her perfect genetic makeup in the Wachowskis’ latest sci-fi spectacle Jupiter Ascending. Fortunately she has a protector in the form of a glassy-eyed, part-albino/part-wolf Caine (Channing Tatum).
The latest poster for French director Guillaume Canet’s upcoming crime thriller Blood Ties plays up the family angle with a scrapbook-style layout featuring cast members Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, James Caan, and Billy Crudup.
Set in 1970s New York, Blood Ties follows 50-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) as he attempts to put his life back together after being released from prison, where he was serving time following a gangland murder. Waiting outside the prison gates for him is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future who’s hoping his brother has changed his ways. Despite setting Frank up with a job and a roof over his head, and reconnecting him with his children and ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), Chris just can’t seem to shake the life of crime he had before. Upon the discovery of Chris’ relapse into crime, Frank banishes his brother from his life only to find that despite not wanting anything to do with Chris, he can’t escape their joint destiny.
Blood Ties, which premiered at Cannes last year, hits theaters and VOD on March 21.
What do you get when you pair Channing Tatum as the “perfect hunting machine” with Mila Kunis as the wanted earthling named Jupiter? Jupiter Ascending, the next sci-fi adventure from Lana and Andy Wachowski, a.k.a. the people who brought you Cloud Atlas.
The first trailer for Jupiter Ascending revolves around Tatum’s character hunting Kunis and then seemingly falling for her. Kunis seems to be the key to something much larger than most people on Earth can understand. Add in some elf-like ears and a lot of futuristic guns, and you’ve pretty much summed up the trailer.

Disney has released a clip of Oz The Great and Powerful — the mesmerizing opening credits.
The visuals in Disney’s hit film are certainly a selling point, already launching clothing and nail polish lines that emulate the rich colors and magical environment that director Sam Raimi created for the movie. But the first few minutes, like the original Wizard of Oz, are in black and white. Created by designer Garson Yu and his Yu + Co, the opening of the film was inspired by the arc of the story.
“Our goal with the opening title sequence was to set the tone for the audience to enter the unique, imaginative world that Sam Raimi created,” Yu’s web site says of the sequence. “The black and white, stereo 4×3 sequence was designed to flow seamlessly into the film’s first scenes which are set in Kansas in 1905.”
Inspiration for the credits came from the films of George Melis, according to an interview with Cinemablend, and his multi-layered approach to the flowing, moving title sequence.
The title sequence looks better on the big screen in 3-D, but you can still appreciate the artistry in the clip below.
(And the entire Internet will be quick to point out that there is a bit of a spoiler at about 23 seconds. So in case you didn’t already know what the big “twist” is in Oz, the credits might inform you.)
Lana and Andy Wachowski’s next film Jupiter Ascending has set a release date of July 25, 2014. Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean have all been cast in the film.
Although no official plot details have been released, the film reportedly is about a time in the future where humans are one of the least evolved species. Vulture reported last year that Kunis would be playing a Russian immigrant who is dangerous to those in power because she has “genetic makeup” matching the queen’s and Tatum would play her bounty-hunter turned lover.
But for all we know, the film could be like the Wachowskis’ last joint, Cloud Atlas, and just be about everything.

Ever since the casting of Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Mila Kunis as the witches of Oz, eager fans of the upcoming Oz The Great and Powerful have been wondering which witch is which. Or, more specifically, which witch is the infamous evil one. The answer remains somewhat elusive as the March 8 release date approaches.
In a new clip, Evanora (Weisz) and Theodora (Kunis) appear to be arguing over the danger of Theodora’s decision to bring Oscar (James Franco) to Oz. But while many assumed Kunis or Weisz would secretly turn out to be the green-faced Witch of the West, the new clip seems to suggest that there may be yet another witch in Oz’s midst. And we’re not talking about Glinda, either.
Check out the preview — which also showcases Theodora’s powerful temper — below: READ FULL STORY
