The fall season certainly comes with a promising slate of blockbusters, from Skyfall to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but two I’ve been most curious about are Jack Reacher and Life of Pi and today we’ve got new stills from both. For the former, Tom Cruise is following last year’s smash hit and franchise best Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in a lead action role and wondering if he’ll find the same magic in a similar timeframe.
Paramount Pictures has released a new still, which one can see above, featuring our star alongside Robert Duvall, who stars as former U.S. Marine Samuel Cash in the film directed by Christopher McQuarrie. I’m personally still waiting for the Werner Herzog villain reveal, but one can also see the trailer here if you missed it.
Then we have four new stills from Ang Lee‘s Life of Pi thanks to the New York Film Festival, where the film was recently announced as their opening title. The images feature newcomer Suraj Sharma, which somewhat guides us through his journey as we see a storm, then him recovering supplies and then a blissful image as the sun sets. There’s also a behind-the-scenes look at our Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee. Also starring Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu, see the images below from the film based on Yann Martel‘s hit novel.
Life of Pi premieres at New York Film Festival, then hits theaters November 21st, while Jack Reacher lands exactly a month later on December 21st.

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 […]
