Director Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Ryan Gosling’s first collaboration Drive was one of this writer’s three favorite movies of 2011. (The other two? The Muppets and Hobo with a Shotgun, so feel free to make of that what you will.) The pair have now reteamed on the Bangkok-set thriller, Only God Forgives, in which Gosling plays a drug kingpin tasked with avenging his brother’s death. The film, whose cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas, arrives July 19, but you can exclusively check out the movie’s new teaser poster below. (And you can follow @RadiusTWC on Twitter to see an animated version, which will be released later today.)

We have some of our first images of Snowpiercer, and humanity is looking rough.
The film, adapted from a French graphic novel, is South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s English-language feature debut. It takes place at the near-end of humanity, in 2031, when an Ice Age has virtually frozen us off the planet and survivors are kept alive aboard an endless train ride. In the new character posters and stills, we see the film’s sprawling cast — which includes Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ed Harris, Kang-ho Song, and a desaturated and bespectacled Tilda Swinton — as well as a few glimpses of the world they live in, which features a lot of grime and frowns.
It’s been ten years since Korean director Park Chan-wook released Oldboy, his cult-hit surreal thriller about a man who is suddenly released after fifteen years of mysterious solitary imprisonment. This October, Spike Lee directs Josh Brolin in a Hollywood version of Oldboy — also based on the Japanese manga series as the original. Details about the new movie have been kept under wraps, but a poster just appeared at CinemaCon. And you thought fifteen years was a long time… READ FULL STORY
Just in case you haven’t noticed, the James McAvoy we fell in love with in Atonement is long gone. He might have those same baby blues, but 2013 is the year that McAvoy takes a trip to the dark side… and grows a beard. The Scotsman might play an angry cop in Welcome to the Punch and an art auctioneer-turned-thief in Trance, but he has never been as bad as he gets in his next film, Filth.
As the recently released — and super-NSFW — worldwide trailer for the U.K. film portrays him, McAvoy’s character is a pervert, alcoholic, psycho, rude cop. The promo doesn’t hold back, showing McAvoy having sex in a variety of positions and snorting large amounts of cocaine — also the visual theme of the film’s poster. Now the question is, do you prefer the good McAvoy or the very, very bad McAvoy?
Check out the trailer (again, NSFW!) and poster below. READ FULL STORY
'Much Ado About Nothing': Check out the new poster for Joss Whedon's Shakespeare adaptation -- EXCLUSIVE
A man in a pool donning a snorkel and grasping a martini doesn’t exactly shout Shakespeare.
Yet that image is becoming ever more closely associated with William Shakespeare by Bardolaters and Browncoats who are eagerly anticipating the June release of Much Ado About Nothing as interpreted by a modern bard, Joss Whedon. The image of a party-ready and dive-ready Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, Cabin in the Woods) was originally seen on a mysterious website that first hinted at the existence of the production, and now it’s on the film’s newest poster.
Shakespeare’s comedy about the “merry war” and reluctant romance between his wittiest couple, Benedick and Beatrice, made its way into Whedon’s home about a decade ago, at one of the Firefly and Avengers maestro’s famed play readings among friends. There, Amy Acker (Angel, Cabin in the Woods) and Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Dollhouse) took on the roles of Beatrice and Benedick, the same parts they play in the film, which Whedon shot over 12 days at his Santa Monica, Calif. home during what was supposed to be his post-Avengers vacation. The stealth production for Much Ado rallied together many actors familiar to fans of the Whedonverse, including Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), and Tom Lenk (Buffy, Cabin in the Woods).
Here EW exclusively debuts the new poster for Much Ado About Nothing, which features Kranz as Claudio — one half of the play’s other central couple — taken from Whedon’s interpretation of a key scene featuring Claudio and the villainous Don John (Firefly’s Sean Maher). It’s a poster that evokes more of Much Ado’s comedy, while the international poster was more about the romance, with Benedick and Beatrice locked in each other’s gaze. Underneath the title is the first tagline for the film: “Shakespeare knew how to throw a party.” READ FULL STORY
Will a western work? That’s the question with Disney’s The Lone Ranger, which arrives this summer as the most expensive cowboy film in history. The trio behind the film — producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp — are accustomed to genre skepticism, they heard the chorus of doubters when they salvaged the swashbuckler genre from the briny depths with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Jane Eyre (2006) star and Anna Karenina costar Ruth Wilson, who portrays Rebecca Reid in the film (as shown in the exclusive first-look poster above), says that Verbinski is a wild-card filmmaker up to the task of reviving a classic that seems dusty in all the wrong ways.
'Violet & Daisy': A tale of two hit girls, starring Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER AND PHOTO
When Geoffrey Fletcher won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar in 2010 for Precious, it was a surprise success after 17 years of trying to find a foothold in the film industry. Now, Fletcher is gearing up for the release of his feature directorial debut, though taking a seat in the director’s chair was nothing new for him when he embarked on his first post-Precious project.
“Directing felt like being back at home. It felt very comfortable because I’d shot so many things growing up and through grad school,” said Fletcher, whose short film Magic Markers first attracted the attention of Precious director Lee Daniels.
Fletcher’s upcoming film, Violet & Daisy, which he also wrote, is the story of two teenage assassins (played by Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan) who accept what they think will be a quick-and-easy job, until their target (The Sopranos’ James Gandolfini) is not what they expected. READ FULL STORY
If The Great Gatsby were retooled as a contemporary YA book — oh look, it already had been! Twice! — you just know that rabid fans wouldn’t hesitate to pledge their undying allegiance to their “ship” of choice. These new posters seem tailor made for those hypothetical shippers — there’s one featuring Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his long-lost love Daisy Buchanan (Carey Mulligan), one with narrator Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) and his girlfriend Jordan Baker (Elizabeth Debicki), and one devoted to Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton) and his mistress Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher.) See the rest after the jump, but act fast — it may be days or even hours before new new Gatsby posters are released.
There’s a new poster out for World War Z, Brad Pitt’s PG-13 zombie action thriller. Now, you might imagine that a gigantic movie about high-speed zombies would feature a few shots of ruined cityscapes. And sure enough, this poster finds Pitt’s character — whose name, I believe, is Dr. Chad Sexington — looking down on the wreckage of a zombie-tropolis. He’s also wearing impeccable soccer-dad cargo pants. Check out the poster below: READ FULL STORY
