Today we have some new images from major upcoming films. First up, we’ll tackle the smallest, with Tim Burton‘s feature-length adaptation of his black-and-white short Frankenweenie. We provided the first looks earlier this fall, but above we see another look at a boy and his dog. Former Burton collaborators Winona Ryder (Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands), Catherine O’Hara (Beetlejuice), Martin Landau (Ed Wood), andMartin Short (Mars Attacks) will lend their voices to Frankenweenie, which hits theaters October 5, 2012. Burton’s other big 2012 film, Dark Shadows, arrives in May.
Check out the image above and also, thanks to Stitch Kingdom, we have a new still from Pixar’s next feature Brave. The image comes from a scene we’ve seen in the trailer, for the film directed by Mark Andrews (who helmed the Pixar short One Man Band) and features Princess Merida (Kelly MacDonald), Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), The Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and Lord MacIntosh (Craig Ferguson). Brave will arrive on June 22nd.
Just a few days ago we received some high-resolution stills for Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises, but Warner Bros. has just let loose a few more. We’ve seen these shots before in magazine spreads, but now they are here in full and unmarked. We see one of my favorite promo shots of Tom Hardy as Bane, shrouded in darkness, as well as Christian Bale as Batman with his mysterious device. Even though it was in the IMAX prologue, we still don’t know what it is used for, but my guess is disabling some sort of enemy weapon, or the enemy himself. Check out the stills below.
Last up we have new stills from another big 2012 blockbuster. Columbia Pictures have released a few stills of Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb‘s The Amazing Spider-Man. We see the actress in high school, which reportedly plays a big part in this update. Webb recently said that his film will be “radically different” than the ones that came before, so we’ll see how he handles this setting without being reminded of Sam Raimi‘s trilogy.
Written by James Vanderbilt, Alvin Sargent, and Steve Kloves, The Amazing Spider-Man also stars Andrew Garfield, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Campbell Scott, Irrfan Khan, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field, and will open on July 3rd, 2012.
Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not […]
In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
