Today we’re getting our first look at ‘Devil’s Knot,’ starring Reese Witherspoon as a distraught mother who loses her son. The movie is based on the true story of the West Memphis Three, who were accused of murdering three little boys in 1993.
Based on Mara Leveritt’s true-crime book “Devil’s Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three,” the film juxtaposes the controversial murder investigation with the pain of losing a child to an unthinkable crime.
“Devil’s Knot” opens May 9, when it will also premiere on iTunes. Colin Firth plays a private investigator who’s not convinced the convicted murderers are guilty. “Knot” also co-stars Mireille Enos, Dane DeHaan, Amy Ryan and Stephen Moyer. Directed by celebrated indie fixture Atom Egoyan (“The Sweet Hereafter,” “Chloe”), the movie premiered to mixed reception at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Seems awfully intense. I’ve followed this case for years, because it’s incredibly fascinating. I’m not sure they even caught the real killer, did they?

The first trailer for the ‘Annie’ remake is out, and I am NOT sold. The movie stars the adorable Quvenzhane Wallis as Annie, plus Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Daddy Warbucks. I think I could buy it all – except for Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan. They can’t even make it look right in 2:41, I’m not convinced they can make it look right in an entire movie.
Watch the trailer below – let me know what you think!
The upcoming film was produced by Will Smith and Jay Z and also features Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Emma Thompson is one of the credited screenwriters. Take a look at the trailer for “Annie” below.

Seth MacFarlane’s at it again!
The ‘Ted’ creator has come up with a new raunchy Western comedy called “A Million Ways to Die in the West.”
MacFarlane, who voiced the title teddy bear in “Ted,” the 2012 hit that grossed $549 million worldwide, stars in the film as a local farmer who enlists the help of a gunslinger’s wife (Charlize Theron) to take on a deadly outlaw (Liam Neeson). Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, Giovani Ribisi and Sarah Silverman all co-star in the film, which Universal will release on May 30. Watch the NSFW red-band trailer — complete with swears and some hilarious Western violence — below.
I don’t know about this one…. But I’ve decided I’m not a Seth MacFarlane fan. I like him when he’s roasting on Comedy Central, but I’m not a fan of his cartoons or movies.
WARNING: Trailer below is NSFW!
MORE CHARACTER POSTERS AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)

Robert Pattinson was a busy guy in 2013! The ‘Twilight’ actor has who movies coming out this year. First, he’ll star in another David Cronenberg movie called “Map to the Stars,” and also David Michod’s “The Rover.”
“The Rover” is a post-apocalyptic thriller. Robert stars as a gang member who gets left behind after a robbery, and is forced to help his victim (Guy Pearce) recover his stolen car.
Michôd, who directed the acclaimed film “Animal Kingdom,” shot “The Rover” in his native Australia, and the first trailer is filled with the kind of beautiful and stark imagery that would be at home in “The Road Warrior.” This one looks great. Watch below.

Last night during the Grammys, Disney launched an all new trailer for ‘Maleficent,’ and it was amazing!! The trailer is longer and shows more of Angelina Jolie in all her cheek-bone amazingness. There is also a creepy version of the Sleeping Beauty song “Once Upon a Dream” covered by Lana del Rey.
Rumor has it, Angelina hand-picked Lana for the song.
“Angelina has been incredibly active in all aspects of the movie, even bagging a role for her daughter Vivienne, so it’s no surprise that she helped choose who would sing the song. Angelina and the film’s producers think Lana is perfect to breathe new life into an old classic.”
What did you think? Excited!?
