Many fans (including us) were very disappointed when Edgar Wright dropped out of Marvel’s Ant-Man. But, the silver lining is that Wright was suddenly available to write and direct a new, original film. That new film is Baby Driver, the upcoming musical-action film starring Ansel Elgort and Lily James. Michael Douglas was at one point also attached to the film, but has now been replaced Jamie Foxx, who is in talks to join the upcoming project.
It’s been a couple of years since we were delighted by The World’s End, but we’re finally getting another new movie from Edgar Wright: the curiously titled Baby Driver, with Divergent star Ansel Elgort in the leading role. Joining Elgort in the film is Lily James, star of this year’s surprisingly wonderful and enchanting live-action Cinderella.
Summit has released a new TV spot for ‘Insurgent,’ and due to its brief runtime, this thing really crams in as much action, money shots, and suspense as possible. Shailene Woodley’s Tris is back, still fighting the good fight in her dystopian future society along with pals Ansel Elgort, Theo James, and Miles Teller. We’ve also got a new gallery of photos from the film, featuring some glamour shots of characters both old and new.
Wherever Edgar Wright goes, we’ll follow, and since he parted ways with ‘Ant-Man,’ the director has lined up not just one, but two new projects. Today brings an update on the first of those two new films: ‘Baby Driver.’ Sony and TriStar will release the project, with ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ leading man Ansel Elgort in early talks to join the cast.
There’s plenty of movement on the ‘Divergent’ franchise front today: we have the first official image from the upcoming sequel, ‘Insurgent,’ featuring Shailene Woodley and her co-stars running away from … something. It could be the evil government, or it could be a dinosaur. Maybe ‘Insurgent’ is doing some cross-promotion with ‘Jurassic World.’ We just don’t know. Additionally, ‘Insurgent’ director Robert Schwentke has signed on to helm the next film in the series. Big day for the ‘—ent’ series.
These 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films aren't going anywhere anytime soon as long as Disney has their way -- they're like the 'Saw' franchise of the high seas, Johnny Depp is their Jigsaw, and his eyeliner and ridiculous accent is a trap. But there also need to be some other men in these movies, so Disney is looking for some fresh, young faces to stand next to Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5,' and they've got their eye on names like popular newcomers Ansel Elgort and Brenton Thwaites, as well as a few other up and comers.
We got a first look at Jason Reitman's latest effort before TIFF 2014 with a non-speaking 'Men, Women & Children' trailer, but since it screened at the film festival to mixed reviews, a new one has, appropriately, debuted online.
The internet, coupled with other technological advances, changed our lives in ways many of us don't even consider, and director Jason Reitman is tackling these issues and struggles in his upcoming film, 'Men, Women and Children.' The first trailer, appropriately void of dialogue in favor of online and textual interactions, is a dark look at what's to befall his cast of characters -- and potentially the rest of us -- in the internet age.
