After years of waiting, the first footage from Alfonso Cuaron’s first film since “Children of Men,” “Gravity,” is now online. In a teaser for the full trailer, which drops tomorrow, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney face outer space peril when their shuttle is destroyed.
Even in the brief clip, you can already see the impressive effects work that has taken a long time to perfect. (MTV)
The Gravity trailer got classified this week. Alberta Film Classification (Canadian classification system) updated their recently classified list with the Gravity rating. The movie will be distributed by Warner Bros. and the trailer got a PG rating with a 1:25 running time. Looking forward to see it!
Thanks Lindsey for the heads up!
The movie isn’t even out yet but Fox is already developing the script for a sequel for “The Heat”, according Deadline:
The Heat, the Paul Feig-directed comedy that stars Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock is sequel bound. Chernin Entertainment and Fox have already made a pricey deal with Katie Dippold to script the sequel. I told you recently about another deal they made with Dippold for an edgy mother/daughter comedy vehicle for Feig, but evidently that deal included an assignment for her to write the sequel. Dippold wrote The Heat, about mismatched female FBI agents in Boston, with ads that look like they are going to continue McCarthy’s ascension as a top physical comedienne, grounded by Bullock’s prudish counterpart. Dippold’s repped by WME and 3 Arts.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s buddy cop comedy “The Heat” will be screened in advance for Boston police officers and FBI agents.
The city was stunned Monday after twin bombings at the Boston Marathon killed three people and injured scores more.
Bullock, who plays an uptight “Miss Congeniality”-esque FBI agent sent to work on a case in Boston in the film, thought the screening was a small token of appreciation.
“It’s been an amazing tightknit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don’t think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it’s enough to do for them.
I think having been there, having had our entire crew around us all the time, who are all from Boston, you’re just hoping. And when you see the aftermath, I try to look on the other side, which is, ‘Look how amazing the people were. Look at those people that ran toward everyone without thinking twice about themselves.’ “
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy hold each other at the Twentieth Century Fox presentation to promote their film The Heat at Caesars Palace during 2013 CinemaCon on Thursday (April 18) in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Heat is set to be released on June 28! Check pictures in our gallery, and many thanks to Ann for sending in a bunch of them!
The Heat is featured on April 19th issue of Entertainment Weekly and thanks to my friend Ali we have now scans up in the gallery.
I have added three promotional stills for ‘The Heat’ to the gallery. Check it:
Deadline is reporting that Sandra Bullock will be lending her voice to Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me spin-off Minions. She’s set to play the stylish Scarlet Overkill who — you guessed it — is “bent on world domination.” One can see more minions this summer in Despicable Me 2, but you’ll have wait some time for a film based on the little creatures as Minions doesn’t hit until December 19, 2014. Check out a synopsis of the film below.
This spinoff establishes that Minions have existed since the beginning of time, in service of history’s most ambitiously evil villains. Through their lovable ineptitude, Minions have managed to thwart and ultimately destroy all of those bad guys. This story picks up in the 1960s, before they hench-ed for Gru. With no more super-villains to serve, the Minions fall into a collective depression and three of them set out to seek a new evil master. They wind up at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, whose Audrey Hepburn-like high style appearance belies her world domination ambition and her aspirations to become the world’s first female super-villain.
Finally I got in hands screen captures of 1993 movie “Wrestling Ernest Hemingway”, with starring Richard Harris, Robert Duvall, Shirley MacLaine and Sandra Bullock. Check it:
