To kick off the week we have a batch of first stills from some anticipated features. First up, above, the first image of Juliette Binoche in the Italian drama The Wait has arrived. Coming from Piero Messina, collaborator of Paolo Sorrentino, the Sicily-set drama follows a mother and her son’s fiancee as they spend a holiday in a villa together. We’d expect a a festival bow next year for the film which is awaiting U.S. distribution.

Following that, the first still from Florian Gallenberger’s Chilean drama Colonia has arrived. Starring Mikael Nyqvist, Emma Watson, Daniel Bruhl, Richenda Carey, Vicky Krieps, August Zirner and Martin Wuttke, the film follows “a young couple, Daniel and Lena, who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. When Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police, Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the south of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer (Nyqvist) but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel.” Still shooting, a release is planned for October 2015 and one can see the first image below via Screen Daily.


In our next first look, the BBC sitcom Dad’s Army is getting a feature film reboot with a notable cast. As seen in the stills below (thanks to Digital Spy), Bill Nighy, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Toby Jones, Blake Harrison, Michael Gambon, Daniel Mays, Tom Courtenay and Bill Paterson lead the cast. The film, like its predecessor — which began airing in the late 1960’s — follows a group of men deemed unfit for service as they make of the Home Guard, a local voluntary defense. With shooting recently kicking off by director Oliver Parker (Johnny English Reborn), expect a 2015 release.



Lastly, following Ender’s Game, director Gavin Hood is getting out of the sci-fi realm and heading into a drone drama with Eye in the Sky. Led by Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman, Iain Glen and Captain Phillips‘ break-out star Barkhad Abdi, the first stills have made their way online thanks to Empire. Seen below are Mirren and Abdi in the story that follows a military operation to take out terrorists in Nairobi. Once an order is give, a pilot (Paul) then sees a child enter the kill zone and they have to decide if they’ll go through with the mission.
