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.”

The last we heard of Katniss, Plutarch and Haymitch had rescued her from the Hunger Games arena, where she’d learned that not only had District 12 been obliterated, but Peeta had been kidnapped by the Capitol. Now on her way to District 13 for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, Katniss is headed into battle.
In Mockingjay, viewers will get their first glimpse at District 13, its cast of characters, and those who will stand by Katniss as the Mockingjay. The first teasers for the film have focused on the very white world of the Capitol residents, but in a new roundup of posters for the film, things are looking a little more gray in District 13.
Quentin Tarantino’s post-Civil War western, The Hateful Eight, hasn’t even been shot yet, and it’s already been through its fair share of ups and downs. When pages from the script were leaked back in January, Tarantino filed a lawsuit against Gawker and announced that he was no longer going to make the film. Then, in April, Tarantino told a crowd that he was in fact working on a new draft of the script. And most recently, at Comic-Con, Tarantino said that the film was moving forward. Now, we have proof of that.
We’ve got a look at the poster for The Hateful Eight, which will premiere in the upcoming issue of Empire. According to the poster, the film will be shot in 70-millimeter Super Cinemascope and will hit theaters in 2015.
A few years back, shortly before the release of his debut horror film The Pact, writer-director Nicholas McCarthy told EW, “I think hearing people scream is almost too addictive of a moment for me—I want to do it one more time.” Now, McCarthy is doing it one more time with At the Devil’s Door, another likely scream-inducing project which is released on VOD on August 8 and arrives in cinemas September 12.
It might seem unfair to suggest the new horror movie Septic Man is going to stink, especially without having seen it—but the filmmakers probably won’t object on this occasion. Written by Tony Burgess (Pontypool) and directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) the movie stars Jason David Brown as a man who undergoes a hideous transformation after he is trapped in a septic tank.
Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader play a pair of estranged siblings who are reconnected at a particularly dark moment for both in the Sundance drama The Skeleton Twins. And, when a depressed Milo (Hader) leaves Los Angeles to live with a similarly depressed Maggie (Wiig) and her earnest, goofy husband (Luke Wilson), it’s not exactly a seamless homecoming, with fights, lies, and past traumas weighing on the once-inseparable twins throughout.
But writer-director Craig Johnson didn’t cast two of today’s most likable comedians to just destroy them with melodrama. There are moments of pure joy, too, including a standout sequence, teased in the trailer, where Milo and Maggie break into a cheesy ’80s classic to ease a particularly tense moment. As Owen Gleiberman wrote after the film’s Sundance premiere, “This is a tenderly sincere, and smart, and beguiling, and penetrating movie about the way that ordinary messed-up people can wind up stumbling through their lives.”
EW spoke to Johnson about directing Hader and Wiig and how that whole Starship sequence came together.
As fans of the book know (and moviegoers will find out), Gone Girl is all about solving a mystery. Specifically, it’s about solving the mystery of Amy Dunne’s (Rosamund Pike) disappearance.
After Amy disappears on her fifth anniversary with husband Nick (Ben Affleck), Nick becomes suspect No. 1 in the police investigation. And in new posters for the David Fincher film, we get a brief glimpse at why all signs point to Nick with a peek at some of the police evidence. So far, they’ve got a wedding photo, a scalpel, a pair of underwear, and a page from Amy’s diary.
Check out all four new posters below, which promise a new trailer will premiere today:
It may not be revolutionary to note that twentysomethings are different from thirtysomethings, but in director Joe Swanberg’s latest, Happy Christmas, he takes that idea to the next level when Anna Kendrick’s hard-partying Jenny moves in with her brother (Swanberg), his wife (Melanie Lynskey), and their young child.
Though Jenny might neglect responsibility at every turn, her presence actually helps Kelly (Lynskey) confront the state of her own artistic aspirations, allowing Swanberg to explore the very real tensions that emerge when one party in the relationship takes on the lion’s share of domestic responsibilities. “I’m excited about the feminist issues that the movie tackles. I hope especially women come to the movie and see something that they relate to and that it gets husbands and wives talking about what those family roles are and maybe how to make them work for both people,” Swanberg told EW in a conversation about the intensely personal film and his fascination with all different varieties of female characters.

Over the past couple of years, the Austin, Texas-based Mondo has gained a reputation for making some of the coolest movie-related posters around. Now the boutique merchandise arm of the Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain has announced the initial lineup of guests for its first ever MondoCon, which takes place September 20 and 21 at Austin’s Marchesa Hall & Theater.
Robin Wright has been back in the news recently, thanks to her acclaimed performance in the Netflix show House of Cards — and the buzz around her looks set to continue this summer. Why? Because in her new film The Congress, the actress essays the role of “Robin Wright,” a fictionalized version of herself who sells her digital likeness to a Hollywood studio — allowing her computerized image to appear in any film the company wants — so she can care for her ailing son.
