The Runaways – New Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on March 5, 2010

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this music-fueled story of the ground-breaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s: The Runaways. The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, played by Michael Shannon, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself—and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock ‘n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten. Written and directed by Floria Sigismondi, the film chronicles Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band starts to break out.

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done- Trailer for Werner Herzog’s new film

Posted by LiveFor on August 18, 2009

Based on a harrowing true story… The film opens as officers arrive at the scene –a typical middle-class neighborhood in San Diego. The suspect has barricaded himself inside a home and appears to have taken hostages. Two friends he had urgently telephoned earlier that morning arrive, but too late. As they and their neighbors try to come to grips with what has happened, they tell their stories to the detective in charge of the crime scene. In a series of flashbacks, the bizarre story of Brad Macallam begins to emerge. After an ill-fated white-water kayaking trip in a distant land, Brad finds readjustment to suburban life increasingly difficult. As his disaffection grows and his relations with those around him become strained, he glimpses a world more vivid and strangely frightening than others can see. The detectives try to penetrate the mystery of his story, but the questions only multiply. Brad’s unfolding personal and family drama leads to an obsession with the ancient play, finally driving him to murder.

Herzog wrote and directed this and David Lynch executive produced.

It stars Michael Shannon, Chloë Sevigny and Willem Dafoe.

First look at Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex

Posted by LiveFor on June 3, 2009

After having seen some photos of the lovely Megan Fox in costume for the Jonah Hex film adaption I have been itching to see what Jonah would look like.

Now these photos of Josh Brolin as Jonah Hex have turned up (via AICN) and it is looking pretty good. He certainly looks the part and they’ve got the scarring almost right (I’m wondering if they may make it a little more icky in post production in a Two-Face stylee)

Will Arnett, Michael Shannon and John Malkovich also star in the film. Jimmy Hayward is directing and it is due out on 6th August 2010.
What do you think of Brolin’s look? Have they got it spot on? Do you feel this will be a good adaption of the character with the people involved?
