Kodi Smit-McPhee hopes to create a 'new nostalgia' in 'A Birder's Guide to Everything' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER

birders-guide-to-everything.jpg

At only 17, Kodi Smit-McPhee is probably best known for starring in somewhat macabre projects — from Let Me In to The Road, his precocious darkness and intense gaze seem to always be on display. Even ParaNorman‘s Norman Babcock was a bit of an outcast. Even though A Birder’s Guide to Everything isn’t exactly devoid of difficult emotional truths (and OK, OK, a gawky high school kid obsessed with birding might still fit into “charmingly misunderstood outcast” territory), Smit-McPhee was thrilled to finally get to work with actors his own age.

“I was into the nostalgia of having a group again — a kid group like Goonies, Stand by Me, going on an adventure,” said Smit-McPhee. He’d never seen the River Phoenix coming-of-age pic till his co-star Alex Wolff introduced him to it during filming. Viewings quickly became an on-set ritual. “We used to go to each other’s rooms and watch the movie all the time. It was really fun,” he said.

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1' gets fiery first poster

The third installment of the Hunger Games film franchise has an utterly unwieldy title (what hast thou wrought, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1?) — and, as of today, a cool new poster that marries the book’s memorable cover image with a healthy dose of flames. It’s also reminiscent of Catching Fire‘s first “motion poster,” as well as a similar image released way back in July 2011 to promote the first Hunger Games movie

In other words: The campaign begins as it always begins… but if Mockingjay the novel is any indication, the film’s advertisements may start treading new ground as its release date draws closer. (At the very least, Capitol Couture propaganda wouldn’t make sense for these last two movies — right?)

Check it out below — and may the odds be ever in your favor:

'Blood Ties' poster: Clive Owen and Billy Crudup's not-so-brotherly love -- EXCLUSIVE

blood-ties-poster.jpg

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.

Sundance 2014: Check out the poster for the Dan Stevens-starring thriller 'The Guest' -- EXCLUSIVE

The-Guest.jpg

The next film from the makers of last year’s home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next? That would be action-thriller The Guest, which stars Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. “It’s about this family who is grieving over the loss of their brother and son in a military conflict,” says You’re Next director Adam Wingard, who made The Guest in cahoots with his regular screenwriter Simon Barrett. “One day this guy shows up and claims to have been friends with him. He ends up integrating himself into the family and then we slowly learn more and more about this guy and who he really is. It’s got a sense of humor similar to You’re Next but then it takes an action-twist.”

John Turturro on directing Woody Allen in 'Fading Gigolo' -- POSTER PREMIERE

FADING-GIGOLO.jpg

We’re used to seeing veteran actor and director John Turturro as all sorts of characters – from a playwright in Barton Fink to Agent Simmons in the Transformers films to the iconic Jesus Quintana in The Big Lebowski. But in his upcoming film, Fading Gigolo, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, Turturro assumes the oldest profession – alongside his unlikely pimp, played by Woody Allen.

Allen plays a bookstore owner and Turturro his younger florist neighbor. After a chance conversation with Allen’s dermatologist, played by Sharon Stone, Turturro is roped into assisting with her “plumbing” needs and his new career takes off from there. His relationships span from the wealthy women of New York to a quiet, repressed Hasidic Jewish woman from Brooklyn, played by Vanessa Paradis.

Shailene Woodley on 'The Fault in Our Stars' tagline: 'It's not something I would have chosen'

On Wednesday, author John Green’s mighty fandom was rocked by the release of the first poster for The Fault in Our Stars, a highly anticipated film adaptation of Green’s bestselling YA novel.

The image itself seemed pretty much perfect — a romantic shot of the film’s cancer-stricken teenage lovers Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort), lying in a patch of grass and looking blissfully happy together. Hazel was even wearing her cannula. But one sentence at the bottom of the poster threatened to ruin the effect. It’s the film’s chosen tagline — which reads, “One sick love story.”

Some labeled it glib and offensive. Others applauded it, admiring the tagline’s stark gallows humor. Now Fault star Woodley herself has weighed in on the tagline as well… and though she ultimately supports it, the actress also says she would have picked something different if the decision had been hers to make.

'In Secret': Elizabeth Olsen on working with Oscar Isaac, making 'Godzilla' and 'Avengers' -- EXCLUSIVE

In-Secret.jpg

Speaking to Elizabeth Olsen this time of year traditionally means you’re previewing Sundance. In recent years, beginning with Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011, she’s been one of the indie festival’s biggest darlings. This year, unfortunately, she doesn’t have a film in the Sundance lineup — but on Feb. 21, she stars in In Secret, a period romantic thriller based on Émile Zola’s novel, Thérese Raquin. Olsen plays an unhappy wife trapped in a passionless marriage to her cousin (Tom Felton, in full-on creepy Alan Cumming mode). When sparks instead fly with her husband’s dashing artist friend (Oscar Isaac), they’re tempted to knock off the man keeping them apart, never mind the withering glares of her mother-in-law (Jessica Lange).

In Secret looks promising, but Olsen is also poised to go from the art-house to the multiplex in a huge way. The 25-year-old was an essential part of Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake earlier this fall, and next year, she stars in the wait-this-trailer-almost-looks-promising Godzilla. And while that monster movie opens in May, she’ll likely be rubbing elbows with Marvel superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America as the character Scarlet Witch, one of the two new members of Joss Whedon’s Avengers.

Rest assured, Olsen isn’t turning her back on the indie world. In fact, she’ll be at Sundance in January to support her boyfriend, Boyd Holbrook, who has two promising movies screening.

In addition to the exclusive new poster for In Secret, Olsen checked in with EW to discuss the movie and what promises to be a most exciting 2014.

Check out the poster and trailer for Joe Swanberg's new film 'All the Light in the Sky'

All-the-Light-in-the-Sky.jpg

It is tempting to say writer-director-actor Joe Swanberg has had a busy 2013 given he released his most high-profile film to date in the form of Drinking Buddies and superlatively portrayed a tool of an older brother in the sadly underseen horror film You’re Next. However, every year is a busy one for Swanberg, who has directed well over a dozen movies over the past decade and acted in many more.

“But what’s he done for us recently?” you cry. Good question. The answer is All the Light in the Sky, his latest comedy-drama which stars Jane Adams (Hung, Happiness, the forthcoming Poltergeist remake) as a Malibu-dwelling actress, Sophia Takal as her visiting niece, and director Larry Fessenden as a man who, amongst other things, does one hell of a Jack Nicholson impression.

'Divergent' poster puts Shailene Woodley on top of the world, plus character posters for the whole Dauntless crew -- PHOTOS

Divergent-poster.jpg

Summit Entertainment has released the official poster for their highly anticipated film adaption of the best-selling novel Divergent.

The new poster features Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior and Theo James as Four situated high above a futuristic version of Chicago. Fans of the series will be happy to note that the poster features a few nods to Veronica Roth’s book as well — in the distance,  we see a flock of birds that are reminiscent of the tattoo that runs across Tris’ collarbone, and the iconic ferris wheel, which plays an important role in the development of Tris and Four’s relationship. The poster also includes the official tagline for the film: “What makes you different makes you dangerous.”

Additionally, Summit released a slew of dark character-centric posters for Dauntless faction members just last week. The set of eight character posters feature solo posters for Tris (Woodley), Four (James), Christina (Zoe Kravitz), Eric (Jai Courtney), Max (Mekhi Phifer), Peter (Miles Teller), and Tori (Maggie Q).

Check out the official character posters for the entire Dauntless crew below:

Angelina Jolie is magnificent as Maleficent -- POSTER

Angelina Jolie playing Maleficent might be Disney’s best pairing of actor and role since Johnny Depp played a certain pirate. Of course, Disney had to be dragged kicking and screaming into accepting Depp’s eccentric performance as Capt. Jack Sparrow — until it made them billions of dollars. Jolie’s portrayal isn’t likely to ruffle as many feathers, especially since she looks amazing as the Sleeping Beauty villain who curses the young Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning.)

In the new poster, there’s no denying who the star of the film is: Jolie wears the horned headdress that her green-faced character was famous for in the 1959 animated movie. But it’s her piercing green eyes that force your heart to skip a beat.

Maleficent, which is Jolie’s first on-screen role in three and a half years, opens May 30. Here’s the official plot synopsis: “A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal — an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom — and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.”
