Emma Watson
Daniel Bruhl
Emma Watson ("Harry Potter") and Daniel Bruhl ("Rush") will star in director Florian Gallenberger's film "Colonia". The film's story takes place in 1973 and Watson stars as a young woman who joins a cult in order to save her husband (Bruhl), who had been kidnapped by Pinochet's secret police during the Chilean military coup. The film will begin shooting before the end of the year in Luxem­bourg, Munich, Berlin and South America. Here is the official press release:
"Majestic announced today that principal photography is about to begin on thriller COLONIA, from Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Florian Gallenberger (JOHN RABE). The film stars Emma Watson (HARRY POTTER, NOAH, THE BLING RING) in her first lead role since Harry Potter and Golden Globe® nominee Daniel Brühl (RUSH, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, THE FIFTH ESTATE). The film will shoot in Luxem­bourg, Munich, Berlin and South America, until the end of the year.

COLONIA tells the story of Lena and Daniel, a young couple, who become entangled in the Chilean military coup of 1973. Daniel is abducted by Pinochet’s secret police and Lena tracks him to a sealed off area in the South of the country, called Colonia Dignidad. The Colonia presents itself as a charitable mission run by lay preacher Paul Schäfer but, in fact, is a place nobody ever escaped from. Lena decides to join the cult in order to find Daniel.

Gallenberger is directing COLONIA from a script he and Torsten Wenzel wrote, inspired by true events. Benjamin Herrmann is producing the feature through his Majestic banner (DESERT FLOWER, JOHN RABE, TOUR DE FORCE). Nicolas Steil will serve as co-delegate producer through Iris Productions (SUNSET SONG).

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes cinematographer Kolja Brandt (Hector and the Search for Happiness, North Face), production designer Bernd Lepel (Down­fall, The Baader Meinhof Complex), costume designer Nicole Fischnaller (A Most Wanted Man, The Counterfeiters), makeup designers Waldemar Pokromski (The White Ribbon, The Pianist) and Claudine Moureaud (MERCHANT OF VENICE), sound recordist Carlo Thoss (THE GIRL WITH THE PEARL EARRING) and editor Hansjörg Weissbrich (Night Train to Lisbon).

Commenting on the creative team behind the project producer Benjamin Herrmann said: “With Florian’s visionary directing style, and two of the most diverse and gifted young actors working today leading our cast, COLONIA is set to become a powerful and important dramatic production.”"

box-office-the-equalizer

Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" dominated the weekend box-office with a solid, $35 million debut. Based on the 1980s TV series of the same name, the Denzel Washington starrer scored the fourth best September opening ever, behind "Hotel Transylvania", "Insidious: Chapter 2" and "Sweet Home Alabama". With numbers like that, you can be sure that a sequel will get made.

This week's other wide release, the 3D stop-motion animated feature "The Boxtrolls" opened in third place with $17 million, the best ever debut for Laika Studios compared to "ParaNorman" ($14 million in 2012) and "Coraline" ($16.8 million in 2009).

In other box-office-related news, "Guardians of the Galaxy" has reached a domestic gross of $319 million, passing the first and second "Iron Man" movies and becoming the third highest-grossing film in the Marvel super-hero franchise, behind "Iron Man 3" ($409 million) and "The Avengers" ($623 million).

the-equalizer-2014-movie-clips

Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" opens today in theaters, so we have a collection of five clips from the awesome actioner. An adaptation of the 1980s TV show of the same name, the film stars Denzel Washington as a former-commando vigilante who starts a war with the Russian mafia to save the life of a young girl (Chloë Grace Moretz). So far, the film has earned mixed reviews from critics, but it's already more than the genre usually gets. Most of the praise is directed towards Fuqua's stylish direction and Washington's kick-ass performance. In my book, that means it's a must-see. The film also stars Marton Csokas, David Harbour, Bill Pullman and Melissa Leo.

Young-Adult Adaptation "The Maze Runner" managed to wrestle its way up to the top this weekend with a solid $32.5 million, to which it also added $49 million from overseas markets, resulting in a quick return for its $34 million budget as well as a decent profit.

interstellar-new-posters-matthew-mcconaughey

Four new posters have been released for Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar". The film focuses on a space mission which is meant to find a new planet for mankind to settle on after Earth has become uninhabitable. The explorers use a "newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage". Or, better yet, to boldly go where no man has gone before. Anyway, the posters shows us some of the elements of this journey, from a father-daughter relationship on Earth to deep space and strange new worlds.

The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.

exodus-gods-and-kings-featurette

The first behind-the-scenes featurette for Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings" has been released. The making of video offers a look at the production and it looks just as you would expect: epic. Of course, with Scott at the helm of a project like this, you won't get anything less than that. I just hope he can successfully tackle the religious aspects of the film. The film stars Christian Bale as Moses, the Old Testament prophet who rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton) and takes 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt. The cast also includes Aaron Paul, Ben Kingsley, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro.

"Exodus: Gods and Kings" opens in theaters on December 5th.

The first images for Angelina Jolie's drama "By the Sea" have been released via Entertainment Weekly. Jolie has taken the role of writer, producer and director for this project in which she also stars alongside real-life spouse Brad Pitt. The film's story takes place in 1970s France and it focuses on Vanessa (Jolie), a former dancer, and her husband Roland (Pitt), an American writer, who travel the country together as their marriage is falling apart. The cast also features Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer. The film is currently filming in Malta and will be released sometime in 2015.

In an interview for EW, Jolie spoke about the film:
"I chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey."

Matt Damon
Paul Greengrass
For some years now, Bourne franchise star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass have been very clear on the fact that they will not return for a fourth film featuring Jason Bourne. But now, it seems they've had a change of heart. According to recent reports, both Damon and Greengrass are in early talks with Universal for a new sequel. The studio is apparently determined to get the new film ready for a release on July 16, 2016, a slot previously assigned to an untitled Bourne film. The sequel to the spinoff "The Bourne Legacy" will apparently get pushed back, but not cancelled. The Jeremy Renner starring sequel will be directed by Justin Lin ("Fast & Furious"). Lin is currently working on the second season of the HBO series "True Detective".
