Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe team up for Shane Black's 'Nice Guys'

Shane Black, who made his reputation writing Lethal Weapon for producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros., has decided that he’s not too old for this shit.

After striking it big again as a director of last summer’s Iron Man 3, Black has re-partnered with Silver and Warner Bros. for a project he co-wrote with Anthony Bagarozzi titled The Nice Guys. And he’s landed some pretty nice guys to play the two L.A. detectives investigating the mysterious suicide of a 1970s porn star: Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. READ FULL STORY

Critical mass: Smooth sailing or angry seas for 'Noah'?

Darren Aronofsky’s bold biblical epic Noah is sure to get different types of people talking for different reasons. The Black Swan director faithfully follows the message of the slim biblical text in the Book of Genesis, but he fills the gaps with spectacular CG effects, Tolkien-esque creatures, and a daring 21st-century point of view on evolution and environmentalism. Some parts of the world have already blanched at the film, presumably for the liberties Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel take with the sacred tale, but secular audiences and even some religious types might find themselves simply thinking… “Cool.” READ FULL STORY

'Noah': Russell Crowe's planned papal visit nixed

In the much-hyped build-up to Passion of the Christ in 2004, Mel Gibson screened the polarizing film for Pope John Paul II, who may or may not have endorsed it by saying, “It is as it was.” The Pope later met with actor Jim Caviezel and blessed him in a priceless photo op that helped promote the movie.

Paramount and the team behind Noah were likely hoping for a similar boost this week, with the film having its Italian premiere on Tuesday. Russell Crowe, who plays the Bible figure as action-hero, had been tweeting Pope Francis in recent weeks, urging him to screen Darren Aronofsky’s $130 million movie about the great flood. It’s unclear whether the pontiff has seen the film, but a planned meeting between the film’s star and Francis was canceled after the Vatican reportedly grew concerned that Crowe’s celebrity would turn the Pope’s dignified weekly general-audience meet-and-greet into a media frenzy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Paramount dropped its plan once news of Crowe’s possible appearance became public.

Though it must feel like a missed opportunity for the film, Crowe can take solace in knowing that the Vatican apparently considers him a bigger star than Caviezel.

'Winter's Tale' trailer: Colin Farrell rides a white horse, Russell Crowe growls -- VIDEO

A common thief falls in love with a tuberculosis-stricken beauty in the supernatural drama Winter’s Tale, starring Colin Farrell as said thief, and Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil!) as the object of his affection. Set in a mythic, Edwardian-style New York City, Russell Crowe brings out a devilish Irish growl to play a malevolent gangster.

Based on Mark Helprin’s 1983 novel, the adaptation marks Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman’s (A Beautiful Mind) directorial debut. Winter’s Tale also boasts an impressive supporting cast including Will Smith, Eva Marie Saint, Matt Bomer, and Jennifer Connelly. Check out the trailer after the jump, and don’t blink or you might miss Smith.

'Noah' trailers: Russell Crowe fights natural disasters of biblical proportions -- VIDEO

NOAH.jpg

In Noah, director Darren Aronofsky’s Old Testament epic, Russell Crowe plays the titular biblical figure who must save his family from God’s impending wrath of natural disasters.

In the pair of trailers below, Crowe sports varying hair lengths and levels of distress as he “builds a vessel to hold the innocent.” This vessel — his Book of Genesis-worthy ark — is gargantuan, with special compartments for reptiles, mammals, and birds. After all, it has to withstand biblical plagues.

We also see Anthony Hopkins, looking a little like a worse-for-wear Gandalf, advising Crowe: “You must trust he speaks in a way that you can understand.” The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth.

'Winter's Tale' trailer: Colin Farrell and Lady Sybil's undying love -- VIDEO

Don’t let the name fool you: Winter’s Tale has nothing to do with Leontes, Hermione, and an exit, pursued by a bear.

Instead, it’s a sort of supernaturally inflected Aladdin/Walk to Remember/The Fountain mashup, starring Colin Farrell as charming World War I-era thief Peter Lake and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay (a.k.a. the dearly departed Lady Sybil) as the dying woman he loves.

Through mysterious means — time travel? A Sleepy Hollow-style decades-long dirt nap? — Lake finds himself still alive and kicking in present-day New York City, where friendly face Jennifer Connelly helps him remember his past and figure out what he’s meant to do in the future. (Evidently, it’s got something to do with his undying passion for Sybil.) Oh, and Connelly’s fellow Beautiful Mind Oscar winner Russell Crowe plays some kind of mustache-twirling Irish gangster. The film also features “Athansor, a mysterious white horse who becomes [Peter's] guardian angel” — according to Wikipedia, anyway.

Darren Aronofsky rep calls reports of 'Noah' rough seas 'false rumors and gossip'

Noah, Darren Aronofsky’s big-budget biblical epic, doesn’t arrive in theaters until next March, but the Oscar-nominated director and Paramount reportedly are already feeling the winds of a brewing storm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film has generated unfavorable reactions in early test screenings, and the studio is leaning on Aronofsky to make changes — changes that the Black Swan director apparently is resisting. “Darren is not made for studio films,” The Reporter quotes a talent rep close to the movie as saying. “He’s very dismissive. He doesn’t care about [Paramount's] opinion.”

Casting Net: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd up for 'Ant-Man'; Plus, Bill Murray, more

With the Avengers largely assembled it’s easy to forget that there are still a few Marvel roles that remain un-cast, including director Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Don Jon) and Paul Rudd (This Is 40) are reportedly in talks to take on the superhero role for the feature, which already has a July 31, 2015, release date set. Gordon-Levitt, 32, already has some comic book clout, having appeared in The Dark Knight Rises (a DC property). This would be a departure for Rudd, 44, who has tended toward mid-size comedies and smaller dramas for most of his career. [Variety]
