Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Chastain shared a few Interstellar tidbits behind the scenes of the EW cover shoot for this week’s issue—namely, how they can’t really talk about what the movie’s about.

Camp X-Ray may be about as far from Twilight as Kristen Stewart can get, but in her portrayal of a young guard serving at Guantanamo Bay, she does find herself back in the YA-lit world, if ever so briefly.
Her character, Private Amy Cole, starts to develop a delicate friendship with detainee Ali Amir (A Separation‘s Peyman Moaadi) when she discovers he’s a big fan of the Harry Potter books.
“The movie is really about their relationship and how they have to deal with each other on a day to day basis,” director Peter Sattler told EW after the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. “They have these weird ups and downs as they struggle to make their way through this.”
Check out an exclusive clip from the film below in which Amy Cole implores Ali Amir to follow the rules of the camp for his own well-being.
It’s a kill-or-be-killed situation in this exclusive clip from Fury.
Mike White, the screenwriter behind School of Rock and Nacho Libre, has a very specific creative process. For starters, he’s up at 6 a.m. to start writing, and unlike a lot of writers, by 5 p.m., he’s said goodbye to his laptop for the day.
In an episode of the YouTube series Academy Originals from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences, White explains why it is that he doesn’t write at night, and how he prepares for his morning bursts of creativity. (Hint: It involves sleep and yoga.) READ FULL STORY
'The Signal': Laurence Fishburne gives Brenton Thwaites the third degree in a hazmat suit -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Something strange is happening in the Southwest.
When a group of road-tripping MIT students on the hunt for a mysterious hacker venture into a particularly isolated desert stretch, everything goes dark. Nic (played by The Giver‘s Brenton Thwaites) eventually regains consciousness and finds himself bruised and disoriented. He’s a prisoner in a contained room, staring down a gravely serious, possibly menacing Laurence Fishburne. Also disconcerting? Fishburne is the only party in a protective hazmat suit.
Take a look at the ominous clip from director William Eubank’s stylish sci-fi mindbender after the jump. READ FULL STORY
Jesse Eisenberg’s Simon James has worked at the same company for seven years. You’d think that might give him some clout with the security people he sees nearly every day when his pass stops functioning. But, in director Richard Ayoade’s The Double, he is not only completely unrecognizable to them — he’s also someone to be suspicious of.
His world just keeps getting stranger as he actively has to sneak into a mandatory work party, where his crush, played with dreamy feistiness by Eisenberg’s real-life girlfriend Mia Wasikowska, doesn’t even notice him.
Check out the clip of the party after the jump, and all of its kitschy, surreal, Lynchian oddness. Just keep in mind that he hasn’t even met his doppelganger yet.
Remember when we all freaked out that the first trailer for The Giver was in color? Well, a new featurette reveals that we may have jumped to conclusions too quickly.
“I began to think about how important memory is — what would happen if we could manipulate human memory,” author Lois Lowry explains in the video which goes a long way in helping to calm the nerves of longtime fans of her 1993 classic.
Then, we get the money shot of Jeff Bridges as The Giver in black and white preparing to give Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) all the memories of humanity. “You can take comfort in knowing you are completely helpless,” he says.
Check it out after the jump.
The folks at The Criterion Collection are sorcerers.
Sure, we rely on them to restore and pen beautiful essays about rare or long forgotten triumphs of cinema, but even their work with new releases can leave us awestruck. They have a way of making the already transcendent that much more special, and their upcoming release of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion charmer Fantastic Mr. Fox looks no different.
The three-disc release (out Feb. 18) features a gallery of Roald Dahl’s original manuscripts, an audio recording of him reading his book, puppet animation tests, and the somewhat standard, but no less fascinating, behind the scenes footage of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and the rest of the cast who helped bring the story to life.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
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.
