Here’s the first trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s next film, Crimson Peak:
Crimson Peak is due out in the UK and the US on the 16th October.
Two-time Oscar winner, and the man behind animation gems such as The Incredibles, Ratatouille and The Iron Giant, Brad Bird has a new live action film coming out this May. Tomorrowland, is billed as, “a riveting mystery adventure,” where, “former boy-genius Frank (played by George Clooney), and Casey (played by Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.”
The first trailer gives very little away but the involvement of Bird and fellow script-writer, Damon Lindelof suggests it’s one worth keeping an eye out for when it’s released on the 22nd May. Check out the teaser trailer below:
Everyone’s favourite ‘dude’, Jeff Bridges has released a ‘pay what you like’ spoken word album to help raise funds for the No Kid Hungry charity.
Sleeping Tapes is a collection of musings, field recordings, ambient soundscapes and gentle instrumentation with the aim of relaxing and helping the listener drift off into a sweet land of dreams and wonderment.
The 15-track album is the result of Bridges working with True Detective composer Keefus Ciancia and sound engineer Doug Sax – check out a snippet below and download the album here.
Get Hard is out in US and UK cinemas on the 27th March.
It’s been two and half years since I posted a short blog detailing open auditions for the forthcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton. It looks like the whole project has been trapped in some kind of post-production hiatus for ages – whether this is down to legal stuff or the quality of the end product is unclear, but I’m sure we’ll find out why given time.
For those interested in Straight Outta Compton, it looks like it’s finally ready to see the light of day. One of the film’s executive producers (along with fellow former member, Dr Dre) Ice Cube recently revealed a trailer during a show in Sydney, meaning it can’t be long until something a bit more official pops up.
The film is directed by F. Gary Gray and stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell – with Paul Giamatti playing Jerry Heller, the group’s manager. The trailer below is taken from fan footage at the recent gig so it’s not the best, but it gives you a rough dea of what to expect – check it out below:
