Quentin Tarantino’s new gunslinging saga just keeps getting mugged.
First, the script for The Hateful Eight leaked online, prompting the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained Oscar-winner to file a copyright infringement lawsuit and threaten never to make the movie. He eventually changed his mind, and although not a frame of film has been shot, there’s now a teaser tagged to the front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Of course, that has also been bootlegged online …
In 1988, Studio Ghibli co-founders Isao Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki released their films—Grave of the Fireflies and My Neighbor Totoro, respectively—simultaneously in theaters. A couple of decades later, they planned to release their final films in the same format. Miyazaki’s movie, The Wind Rises, premiered in Japan last year, and received an Oscar nomination. But Takahata’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya wasn’t ready in time for the planned joint release.
The movie ended up premiering at the Cannes film festival this year, and it’ll get a stateside release this fall. The Tale of Princess Kaguya is based on The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, the oldest surviving Japanese narrative, about a mysterious, possibly extraterrestrial girl who, as a baby, was found in the stalk of a glowing bamboo plant.
This is Takahata’s first movie since 1999’s My Neighbors the Yamadas which, like Kaguya, doesn’t use the traditional anime visual style in its animation. Chloë Grace Moretz was cast as the title character last month, but the trailer doesn’t feature any voice work.
GKids will distribute The Tale of Princess Kaguya in theaters on October 17.
A London-based group of lesbian and gay activists form an unlikely bond with a Welsh mining town during the 1984 U.K. strike against Margaret Thatcher’s government in Pride, from theater director Matthew Warchus.
Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, and Dominic West star in the ensemble cast. Based on a true story, the film follows two completely different groups who realize that it’s their differences that make them stronger together. After premiering at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Pride will open in the U.S. on September 19.
This appears to be one of those “write your own adventure” sort of stories.
Nickelodeon just released the trailer for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which will open next year—and is not to be confused with 2004’s The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. The big change this time around? It looks like SpongeBob’s going to be less animated, and a lot more live-action. (Or at least stop-motion.)
Miles Scott, the 5-year-old leukemia survivor better known as Batkid, won over the hearts of San Francisco (and pretty much the entire internet) when his Make-a-Wish request was to be Batman for a day. And in November, the city of San Francisco came together to make that happen, with thousands of people lining the streets to simulate Gotham City.
Now, filmmaker Dana Nachman is bringing Miles’ story to the big screen. Well, she’s trying to. Nachman has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the film, titled Batkid Begins, which now has its first official trailer, featuring Miles’ parents, Hans Zimmer, and more.
The following clip is NSFW, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.
If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication.
British mathematician Alan Turing had the tough job during World War II of deciphering Nazi codes, a task that ultimately helped lead to the Allied victory. But Turing’s life wasn’t smooth sailing even after his huge success: He was later prosecuted for being gay, then considered a crime.
Benedict Cumberbatch plays Turing in the upcoming The Imitation Game, which documents Turing’s race against time during the war and his life before and after. Directed by Morten Tyldum, the film also features Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, and Mark Strong.
The trailer for the long-awaited, highly anticipated, Michael Bay-produced Ouija board game movie adaptation has been released.
It doesn’t look anything like the Jumanji movie, unfortunately. Coming out this Halloween, Ouija is about a few teenage friends who play the game and awaken some spirits who make them “confront their most terrifying fears,” according to the official website. According to the trailer, those fears include getting your mouth sewn shut with dental floss, a creepy doll, and being forced to play more Ouija.
