Important Stuff, yo.
5. Christina Hendricks Was Stunningly Styled for Flare Magazine.
Good lord, look what this woman could be if she only had a proper stylist! I don’t know if you people follow her on the Twitter, but please, send her the message: Get Help Dressing, Now. H/T Figgy.
4. Michael Shannon Reminded Us of His Magnificence.
Behold the glorious Michael Shannon. The man is so beautiful and talented, I almost have no words..well, maybe a few. These new photos are from The Iceman in which Shannon stars as infamous contract killer Richard Kuklinski, rumored to have killed more than 100 (possibly up to 250) people. His wife (Winona Ryder) and family had no idea the man they lived with led a double life, stalking and murdering, almost for sport. The Iceman also stars Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, James Franco, Stephen Dorff, Robert Davi and David Schwimmer; it opens in limited release this September.
3. Snowpiercer Passport Photos Gave Us Another Peek into Bong Joon-ho’s Upcoming Science Fiction Thriller.
This adaptation of French graphic novel, Le Transperceneige stars Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer and Kang-ho Song as the last of humanity; survivors of a new ice age hurtling to nowhere on a class-separated train. A revolution brews…and we pray for Swinton to kick some ass. Heck, at this point, I’d pay to see a trailer. Snowpiercer debuts sometime later this year.
2. The Arthur Newman Trailer Left Us Feeling Confused.
On the one hand: Colin Firth and Emily Blunt, on the other: Golf. British actors…American accents. Could be funny…music bad. (Official-type synopsis: Family man fakes his own death, starts a new life as golf pro (?), and meets woman also running from her own problems.) I leave you to your head scratching.
1. Jessica Chastain Joined Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
Horror-master del Toro heads back to his roots with a “modern ghost story” he co-wrote. We haven’t got much on the story details as yet; “a woman begins to suspect her husband might not be who he pretends to be.” Del Toro co-wrote the script, and said it is influenced by The Shining, Exorcist and The Omen. With the cast he’s assembled, Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, Charlie Hunnam…and now Jessica Chastain, I think we can safely allow our hopes to rise just a leetle bit.
