Over the past couple of years writer-director Ben Wheatley has established himself as one of the U.K.’s hottest — and most deliciously gruesome — filmmakers with his 2009 gangster movie Down Terrace, 2011′s unforgettable horror spectacular Kill List, and his recent contribution to the currently playing-in-select-cinemas horror anthology The ABC’s of Death.

Between the trailers, the stills, and your vague recollections of 9th grade English class, you may feel like you’ve already seen Baz Luhrmann’s take on The Great Gatsby. Even so, this awards bait adaptation turned summer blockbuster certainly looks appealing — especially in these pensive new character posters, which combine fabulous ’20s style with the shiniest eyes this side of The Host.
Can English rose Carey Mulligan credibly embody American Jazz Age icon Daisy Buchanan? Will Leonardo DiCaprio’s Gatsby force the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to finally come to its senses? And what’s Tobey Maguire like these days, anyway? We won’t know for sure until Gatsby is finally released May 10 — but in the meantime, these six images can get the discussion started. Prepare to be borne back ceaselessly into the past:
Julianne Moore’s recent characters know their way around a mid-life crisis.
Garnering acclaim for roles in The Kids Are All Right and Game Change, Moore excels at playing complicated women, a trend that is set to continue with Linda Sinclair, her character in the new film The English Teacher. Moore plays the titular high school teacher, a woman whose life outside the classroom hasn’t always measured up to her work inside. When a former student, Jason (Michael Angarano), returns home after failing as a playwright in New York, Linda refuses to let him give up his dream, and decides to mount his new controversial production at the school.
That may have been fine, but Linda also begins a relationship with Jason, which leads to an awkward love triangle between Linda, Jason, and Lily Collins’ “drama student extraordinaire” character, Halle — which naturally gives way to some combative scenes between Collins and Moore. “My character is kind of the catalyst for Julianne Moore’s character going a little bit crazy,” Collins tells EW. “[Moore's character] is kind of having this mid-life crisis, and me calling her out on her relationship with Michael and the play kind of start her on this downward spiral where she shows she’s a bit of a mess.” READ FULL STORY
Check out the new poster for 'Stuck in Love,' starring Jennifer Connelly and Greg Kinnear -- EXCLUSIVE
A father, his daughter, and his son all navigating the rough waters of love and relationships — such is the story of upcoming film Stuck in Love, starring Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, and Logan Lerman.
Stuck in Love features Kinnear as Bill Borgens, a veteran novelist who hasn’t been able to write since his divorce three years earlier. Still obsessing over his ex-wife, Erica (Jennifer Connelly), Bill gets a talking-to for spying on Erica from his own daughter, Samantha (Lily Collins), also an aspiring writer. Samantha has her own relationship problems at college, where she’s recoiling at the very thought of first love with diehard romantic Lou (Logan Lerman). Meanwhile, Bill’s teenage son, Rusty (Nat Wolff), is trying to find his voice, both as a fantasy writer and as the unexpected boyfriend of his school’s dream girl.
EW has the exclusive new poster for Stuck in Love. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY
'Room 237': Check out the poster for the awesome new documentary about Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' -- EXCLUSIVE
In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, Scatman Crothers’ chef Hallorann warns Danny Lloyd’s Danny to stay the hell away from room 237 of the Overlook Hotel — which turns out to excellent, if ignored, advice. But while room 237 is to be avoided, the new documentary Room 237 is a must-see, one which EW’s Owen Gleiberman has described as a “mesmerizing pop-art document.” The work of first-time director Rodney Ascher, the film showcases the theories of five obsessive Shining fans as to what Kubrick really intended with his Stephen King adaptation and features footage from both that snowy chiller and many others.
Room 237 opens theatrically on March 29 and will also be available on VOD, SundanceNOW, and other digital outlets from that date. You can check out the film’s trailer, synopsis, and — exclusively — the new Room 237 poster below.
SXSW 2013: Vincent Grashaw ('Bellflower') steps behind the camera for 'Coldwater' -- EXCLUSIVE POSTER
Vincent Grashaw made a gasoline-scented splash by both producing and appearing in 2011′s indie drama Bellflower, a twisted tale of Mad Max fandom and curdled love. Now Grashaw is making his directorial debut with the SXSW-screening Coldwater, which details a teenage boy’s struggle for survival at a juvenile reform facility in the wilderness.
“I played on a tournament hockey team growing up,” Grashaw told EW last year. “I remember one day our goalie wasn’t at practice and we all wondered what had happened. Turned out his parents sent him to a private juvenile program in the middle of nowhere. He never played with us again and he came back a lot worse than when he went in. I look at Coldwater as a unique opportunity to give those who unnecessarily lost their lives a voice and be an advocate for awareness and change on privatized juvenile rehabilitation programs in this country.”

SXSW: Check out artist Paul Pope's new poster for documentary 'William and the Windmill' -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE AND VIDEO
Real-life stories don’t get much more remarkable than that of William Kamkwamaba, a young Malawian who rescued his family from famine by constructing a power-generating windmill from junk parts. Kamkwamaba related his story in the 2009 bestseller The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind and he is now the subject of the SXSW-screening documentary William and the Windmill from director Ben Nabors, which details both his original story and his subsequent brush with fame.
Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder': New poster features Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko and the 'wonder' of the title -- EXCLUSIVE
The 2013 awards season is behind us, but the Oscars’ man of the hour isn’t about to disappear from the spotlight. Ben Affleck will next be on the big screen in just over a month, in Terrence Malick’s follow-up to his Academy Award-nominated Tree of Life.
EW has an exclusive poster for the To the Wonder, another dreamy, mystical installment in Malick’s collection of films that have amassed a cult following since he first hit the art-film scene in the 1970s. His latest features Affleck as Neil, a man torn between two women: Marina (Olga Kurylenko), the European woman who moved to the United States to be with him, and Jane (Rachel McAdams), the old flame from his hometown whom he reconnects with when his relationship with Marina starts to fray.
This new one-sheet features Affleck and Kurylenko embracing in front of Mont Saint-Michel, the small, rocky island that inspired the film’s title: Located off the coast of Normandy, France, Mont Saint-Michel is often called “The Wonder of the Western World.” Check out the poster below.

Kramer vs. Kramer continues to stand as one of the most memorable, heart-wrenching dramas about divorce and the battle for child custody. But way before the Dustin Hoffman/Meryl Streep-starrer, there was What Maisie Knew, a 1897 book by Henry James about a child shuffled back and forth between her two divorced parents every six months. That turn-of-the-century novel has now been updated for a modern retelling on the big screen, in a film starring Julianne Moore and Alexander Skarsgård.
EW has the exclusive poster for the movie that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. On the new one-sheet, Moore and Skarsgård peek in from the edges, while young actress Onata Aprile (Maisie) is front and center, boring her big eyes “Mona Lisa”-style into anyone who catches a glance of this striking poster — check it out below.

Oblivion is taking Tom Cruise to a now-familiar place — a sci-fi setting where a disconnected soul confronts hard choices and a mystery that makes him question his assumptions about the world around him. That was the case in Minority Report, Vanilla Sky and War of the Worlds and it’s also the case in the April 12 film that stars Cruise as Jack Harper, a repair worker in a distant future where (like WALL-E or the Maytag repairman) his days are defined by his solitary duties. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) and based his graphic novel.
Some new images from the film nod to the tone Kosinski was seeking as he shot in 4K resoultion in Iceland and parts of the United States. The film costars Morgan Freeman, Olga Kurylenko, and Melissa Leo. Here’s more from the Universal Pictures summary:
“On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind. Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautifulstranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.”
