Photo Mania: Riddick, Don Jon, The Family, and More
You can see the newest pictures from Riddick, Don Jon, The Family, Gravity, Out of the Furnace, Insidious: Chapter 2, and Dallas Buyers Club in this week’s Photo Mania. In particular, there are lots of photos for Riddick and Insidious: Chapter 2.
We’re getting closer and closer to the next “franchise film” of 2013. Riddick, although probably undervalued and overlooked, could make a splash when it releases in just over a week. It returns director David Twohy and star Vin Diesel, while adding Katee Sackhoff (Sci Fi’s Battlestar Gallactica). You can see them and more in the gallery below! It’ll officially release September 6th.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is making the next natural jump in his career. The child actor has continued his box office dominance over the past couple years. After creating an online production company, it was a matter of time before he directed his own movie. Who knew that movie would be about a “meathead” that is addicted to porn that just wants to find love? The movie is titled Don Jon and also features Scarlett Johansson. It releases finally on September 27th.
Luc Besson’s (The Lady) The Family has provided another picture before its release. It’s pretty straightforward, showing a family of killers. The hook is the family has reverted back to their old killer ways. The action film also releases in September, this one on September 13th. As you can see, it stars Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer.
One of my most anticipated movies for the rest of the year is Alfonso Cuarón’s (Children of Men) Gravity. The space thriller stars two big names: George Clooney and Sandra Bullock, and the film has been in production for quite some time. Early indications are positive, but we’ll find out October 4th. If you’re as excited as I am, check out the photo above. (Source: IndieWire)
Speaking of highly anticipated, Scott Cooper’s (Walk the Line) thriller Out of the Furnace released another still. This particular movie releases a little later (starting November 27th) but could be quite the draw. With stars like Christian Bale, Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone), Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games), and Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels’ The Butler), how can you not be excited? (Source: Collider)
A bunch of photos for the horror sequel Insidious: Chapter 2 came online earlier. I’ve attached them all below if you’re interested. I probably won’t see the movie because I’m a wuss, but I’ve heard very good things about the original. James Wan, who also directed this year’s The Conjuring, is the credited director, with Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) and Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids) headlining the movie. Chapter 2 will release September 13th. (Source: Collider)
Story-wise, Dallas Buyers Club could take the cake this year. Based on the true story of an HIV-infected drug smuggler, the movie could turn out to be a darkhorse award contender, too. It stars Matthew McConaughey – one of Hollywood’s hottest actors – as well as Jennifer Garner (Juno). Jean-Marc Vailee (C.R.A.Z.Y.) directed the film that will play at the Toronto International Film Festival before releasing in theaters November 1st. (Source: The Film Stage)
