Following it’s premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival we were pleased to see thriller “Magic Magic” would be playing during Cannes Film Festival’s Director’s Fortnight, and now we have our first clip of the film featuring Juno Temple.
Also starring Emily Browning and Michael Cera, the Sebastian Silva film follows Temple’s Alicia, a young girl who heads to Chile to stay with her cousin (Browning) and her cousin’s boyfriend and friends. Alicia is slowly unravelling though and her cousin and friends begin to notice something is wrong much too late.
In this first clip via The Playlist, we see Alicia on the phone to her cousin, clearly in the middle of a breakdown. Lots of close camera shots here and what looks like another great performance from Temple who having been an indie mainstay for several years has been making her way in to Hollywood with last year’s controversial “Killer Joe”, supernatural thriller “Horns” opposite Daniel Radcliffe, and two high profile blockbusters – “The Dark Knight Rises” and next year’s Disney’s Sleeping Beauty redo “Maleficent” opposite Angelina Jolie.

Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven and Ray Liotta are the latest cast members to join Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s comic book sequel adaptation “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”, according to The Playlist.
Miller and Rodriguez are already underway filming on the sequel to 2005′s “Sin City” based on Miller’s graphic novel, and a large chunk of the original cast is returning, including Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Jaimie King, Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. Gordon-Levitt will play a newly created character named Johnny, a “smooth gambler” role that had originally been offered to Johnny Depp, but there are no details on who the newest cast members will play. It’s also unclear if Temple has taken the female lead role that had not yet been cast last we heard, a role originally meant for Angelina Jolie. If so, it’s quite a get for the young British actress.
Temple, a current nominee for BAFTA’s EE Rising Star Award, last appeared in Christopher Nolan’s Batman conclusion “The Dark Knight Rises” and will next be seen opposite Michael Angarano in indie comedy “The Brass Teapot”, the trailer to which we unveiled earlier today. She recently completed filming on Disney’s Sleeping Beauty reimagining “Maleficent” opposite Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, as well as supernatural thriller “Horns” with Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella.

It’s nothing new to see tween actors and actresses trying their hardest to break away from their pop cultural personas but “Spring Breakers” might be the biggest break several have tried all at the same time. Harmony Korine‘s day-glo blast of hedonism and violence stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, along with a K-Fed inspired James Franco.
It’s rated R and following on from the US and European poster release, A24 and Annapurna Pictures have released a trailer which shows us why. It’s caused debate amongst fans of the actresses as well as critics, but it looks like a crazy, incredible explosion of a twisted American Dream.
Contrasting the insanity of the “Spring Breakers” trailer is Zac Efron‘s “At Any Price“, which was doing the festival rounds in 2012. Starring Dennis Quaid and Efron as a father and son with a tumultous relationship, the family’s farming business is threatened by an unexpected crisis and Efron’s desire to race cars. This new trailer showcases the urgency and drama of the film, set to be released April 26th 2013.
Away from the tween stars are two indie actors whose stars are slowly rising. “The Brass Teapot” starring Juno Temple and Michael Angarano looks to be a charming, fun and heartfelt indie pic following a young couple who discover a brass teapot that makes them money whenever they hurt themselves. Soon they must come to terms with how far they are willing to go and how money can change people. “The Brass Teapot” will premiere on VOD on February 28th before a wide release on April 5th.
And “21 And Over”, starring Miles Teller has a new TV spot as it gears up for a March 1st release. When straight-A college student Jeff Chang’s (Justin Chon) two best friends Casey (Teller) and Miller (Skylar Astin) surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change – even with a critical medical school interview early the next morning.

After a rather embarrassing display last year with an all-male final five, BAFTA has taken the job of nominating their 2013 EE Rising Star Award out of the hands of the public. Instead, a committee made up of film committee deputy chairman Pippa Harris, director Kevin Macdonald, actor Benedict Cumberbatch and film critic Mark Kermode put together a much more inclusive and reasonable list this time around. Only now, with worthy nominees Elizabeth Olsen, Alicia Vikander, Suraj Sharma, Juno Temple and Andrea Riseborough in place, will the public get to vote for the eventual winner.

Juno Temple, Joe Anderson and Kelli Garner are in talks to join Daniel Radcliffe and Max Minghella in supernatural thriller “Horns”, according to Variety.
Under the direction of Alex Aja, Radcliffe will play Ignatius Perrish in this adaptation of the Joe Hill bestseller, a man who, on the anniversary of the murder of his beloved girlfriend, grows horns and supernatural powers, the ability to drive people “to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses.” Minghella plays a district attorney with a hidden dark side, and Temple is lining up the role of the dead girlfriend. No word on who Anderson and Garner will play, but filming begins this fall, so more details should emerge soon.
Temple recently wrapped up shooting on thriller “Magic Magic” and will next be seen opposite Amanda Seyfried in “Lovelace”, and is currently filming Disney’s Sleeping Beauty redo “Maleficent” opposite Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. Anderson and Garner had always been promising rising stars on film (“Across the Universe” for him, “Lars and the Real Girl” for her), but both took a detour to TV last season, Anderson with “The River” and Garner with “Pan Am”, both ABC shows that will not see a second season.

Recently hit with an NC-17 rating from the MPAA, the first trailer for Emile Hirsch and Juno Temple‘s crime thriller “Killer Joe” shows us why.
Starring Matthew McConaughey (in what could be a career-defining role) as the titular killer, the film follows Hirsch’s Chris Smith, a desperate young man who owes a debt and decides to have his mother murdered in order to obtain her life insurance. Temple stars as the sister who is used as collateral, and things very quickly begin to spiral out of control.
The film premiered last year at Venice Film Festival and reviews came back good, with many calling it dark, thrilling, and bizarre. Perhaps most surprisingly however, considering the tone of the trailer, is how funny the film actually is – albeit clearly a dark humor.
“Killer Joe” is set for general release July 27th 2012. See the first trailer below.

Looks like Juno Temple has become the de facto go-to replacement for Dakota Fanning. She’s already set to take on Fanning’s vacated role in “Girls Night Out”, and now Deadline reports Temple will also be taking over on “Wild Side”, formerly “Mississippi Wild”, which Fanning was attached to in early 2011. The entire original cast, in fact, which included Forest Whitaker, Mickey Rourke and Robert Duvall, are out, and joining Temple instead will be Nicholas Cage and Johnny Knoxville.
Temple will play Lila Belle Clyde, a Southern small town beauty queen who gets her hands on a stash of stolen diamonds and attempts to make off with them in order to leave New Orleans behind, forcing her to “elude authorities, a dogged news reporter, and Odel, a self described wolf determined to hunt her down and recover his swag.” Cage will play Odel, the murderous thief who stole the diamonds in the first place. Jesse Baget will direct the road trip drama from a script he wrote with Stefania Moscato. Filming begins on July 23 in Louisiana.
Temple is one of our Faces to Watch in 2012 and recently premiered indie romance “Jack and Diane” at the Tribeca Film Festival. She is currently filming indie drama “Truck Stop” and will then jump to thriller “Magic Magic” opposite Michael Cera and Emily Browning. She will be seen in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises” and plays Amanda Seyfried’s best friend in pornstar biopic “Lovelace.”
