Terrence Malick shot two films back to back last year, and with the release of a new trailer, we finally have a good look at the first, “Knight of Cups.” Christian Bale stars in this one, apparently as a power player at the center of Hollywood, surrounded by beautiful people, including Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Jason Clarke, Freida Pinto, Imogen Poots and Teresa Palmer – at least from what we can gather in the trailer. Many more actors filmed parts of this movie, though until the whole thing premieres, weRead More

Joel Edgerton Exodus
Twentieth Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton co-star as Moses and Pharaoh Ramses, respectively, in this biblical epic that recounts the Old Testament story of how the former became the prophet that lead 600,000 Israelite slaves out of Egypt, away from the ten deadly plagues and the latter’s reign. “What I thought I knew about Moses I didn’t really,” Scott told Entertainment Weekly. “Either I wasn’t paying attention in Sunday school or I had forgotten. I wasRead More
EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS (2014)Pictured: Joel Edgerton as Ramses
Ridley Scott heads to ancient Egypt for his next film, and now thanks to EW we have the first photos of Joel Edgerton and “Breaking Bad” alum Aaron Paul joining Christian Bale in “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” “Exodus” follows Bale as Moses, the Old Testament prophet who stood up against the pharaoh Ramses (Edgerton) and freed 600,000 slaves. Paul plays Joshua, a Hebrew slave who leads the exiles after Moses. Edgerton, for his part, seems aware of some of the controversy that stirred over some of the film’s casting, thoughRead More
Bradley Cooper has big plans but Christian Bale isn’t so impressed in the newest clip released from David O. Russell’s NYFCC winning latest, “American Hustle.” Cooper plays Richie DiMaso, an FBI agent with big ideas who busts small-time con artists Irving and Sydney (Bale and Amy Adams) and makes them work for him in catching corrupt politicians with a con or two, all wired to record, of course. Jeremy Renner is the New Jersey mayor and target of Richie’s big ideas for video surveillance, but Irving clearly doesn’t relish inRead More
More outrageous Jennifer Lawrence coming at ya in the newest clip released from David O. Russell’s 1970s caper flick “American Hustle,” and this time alcohol is involved so you know things about getting out of control. Lawrence is seen here having dinner with her con man of a husband (Christian Bale), Jeremy Renner’s corrupt New Jersey mayor and Elizabeth Rohm, playing Renner’s wife Dolly. Just like her real life counterpart, Lawrence’s on-screen alter ego Rosalyn is a total scene-stealer, showing off her (apparently scented) nails to Dolly, then demanding thatRead More
We knew from the various trailers and TV spots released thus far that Jennifer Lawrence gives a deliciously outrageous performance in David O. Russell’s latest, “American Hustle,” and today we finally have a nice long clip of an actual scene from the film that seems to reiterate this yet again. Big hair, golden robe and Long Island accent and all, Lawrence’s Rosalyn prepares to make dinner for her husband Irving (Christian Bale) and their kid but immediately burns it instead. He’s clearly resigned to the fact that she’s crazy andRead More
American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence appears to be the focus in the new TV spot for David O. Russell‘s 1970s crime dramedy “American Hustle.” Alongside Lawrence is an epic cast that includes Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Robert De Niro. The film is based on the true story of a 1980s FBI sting operation known as “Abscam,” in which a con artist worked with the FBI to fight corruption in Congress. Bale plays the role of the leading con artist who, along with his mistress (Adams), are forced toRead More
The “Silver Linings Playbook” duo are back in top form as Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper finally get some screentime and promptly steal the show in the newest trailer released today for David O. Russell’s “American Hustle.” All of Russell’s leads get a slice of the spotlight here, which slows down the scenes considerably from the quick-cut montage style of the first trailer. As a result, we get to know our players a little bit more. Amy Adams is seductive and stubborn partner-in-crime to Christian Bale’s pot-bellied, comb-overed con artist,Read More
Casey Affleck gets into some deep trouble and Christian Bale has to bail him out in the new trailer for Scott Cooper’s highly anticipated drama/thriller “Out of the Furnace.” In a role he beat out Garrett Hedlund, Channing Tatum and Taylor Kitsch for, the younger, non-Batman Affleeck is already showing impressive chops as a troubled soldier who turns to illegal underground fighting to make a living after coming home, only to disappear when he crosses the wrong guy (Woody Harrelson as menacing as we’ve ever seen him). Bale, as hisRead More
