Oh boy. Hostiles looks like the kind of movie where you walk out of the theater and immediately cancel your plans for the rest of the day because there’s no way in hell you can interact with society after seeing something that heavy. That’s definitely the impression we’re getting from the first trailer for the latest film from Scott Cooper. The director of Black Mass and Out of the Furnace reunites with Christian Bale (who starred in the latter) for the new western, which recently impressed critics at Telluride.
After a starring role as Martin Luther King Jr. in Ava DuVernay’s Selma, David Oyelowo is playing another historical figure alongside Rosamund Pike in A United Kingdom, a drama based on the real life story of Botswana’s King Seretse Khama and his British wife Ruth Williams.
The first trailer for Amma Asante's historical drama A United Kingdom is here, and Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo are having a hard time reconciling their love with their countries’ animosity. Pike and Oyelowo play real life figures Ruth Williams and Seretse Kama, who fell in love during the time of apartheid in Botswana in the 1940s.
Since Sony partnered with Marvel for another Spider-Man reboot, Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb has been free to pursue other projects. In addition to producing the Limitless TV series for CBS, Webb has lined up a couple of new films: Gifted and The Only Living Boy in New York. The director will team-up with another superhero star for the former, while a couple of excellent actors have joined Miles Teller in the latter.
Rosamund Pike floored audiences last year in David Fincher’s Gone Girl — as Amy Dunne, Pike displayed unnerving versatility, provocatively commanding the film and earning herself a much-deserved Oscar nod. We’ve all been anxious to see how she’d flex her acting muscles next, but Return to Sender doesn’t exactly look like the follow-up we were all hoping for.
Last year, Christian Bale signed on to headline The Deep Blue Good-by, reuniting him with 3:10 to Yuma director James Mangold. It’s been a while since we’ve gotten an update on the project, but today’s latest news puts The Deep Blue Good-by on our must-see list: Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike has joined the cast, and after watching her go toe-to-toe with Ben Affleck, we’re excited to watch what happens when she’s acting opposite Bale.
David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’ was unsurprisingly one of the most talked about films of 2014—based on the novel by Gillian Flynn (who adapted her own story for the screen), the film took a wry and often cynical look at relationships, gender dynamics, and the darker side of marriage, all wrapped up in the alluring package of a mystery thriller. For those curious about what happens to the main characters of the film once the movie ends, Flynn is now teasing the possibility of a sequel.
