Various movie websites premiered character posters for The Expendables 2.  We collected all the posters from the various websites, which you can check out below.

The film also stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Yu Nan, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

Plot, “The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….”

The Expendables 2 opens August 17th.

CALI (Cast News)

  • CALI

Kristen Stewart has lined up a leading role in the action film Cali, Variety reports.

Kristen Stewart
30 Minutes of Less screenwriter Michael Diliberti is providing the screenplay, which will feature Stewart as Mya, a young woman who, with her boyfriend, Chris, fakes her own death as part of a snuff film and runs away. Years later, she has to return to the San Fernando valley in an effort to save her sisters.

There's no director currently attached, but the plan is to shoot in June/July.

Stewart can be seen later this year in the Rupert Sanders fantasy epic Snow White and the Huntsman,



Rooney Mara
Writer/Director David Lowery is expanding his award-winning short film Ain't Them Bodies Saints into a feature film. Deadline is now reporting that Casey Affleck, Ben Foster and Rooney Mara are all circling roles.

Premiering at Sundance earlier this year, Lowrey's short film was officially described as follows:

"Ain’t Them Bodies Saints" tells the story of an outlaw who, in the 1970s, escapes from prison and sets out across the Texas countryside to reunite with his wife and the daughter he never met. Along the way, however, his past starts to catch up with him.”

Affleck can soon be found providing a voice in ParaNorman and starring opposite Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana and more in Out of the Furnace. Foster just starred in Contraband and recently finished production on Kill Your Darlings.
Aint Them Bodies Saint, meanwhile, will mark the third project that Rooney Mara, has been linked to in the past week, who most recently headlined The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She's now said to be eyeing Spike Jonze's next, still-untitled film, as well as the leading role in the period novel adaptation Brooklyn.

CARRIE (Update)


Recently, CEO of MGM Roger Birnbaum paid a visit to the University of Denver, to speak with its film history and production classes and apparently dropped a few hints about his studio's upcoming Carrie redo.
Fan Poster By  
Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and director Kimberly Peirce are developing the film more as an adaptation of Stephen King's novel and less as a remake of the 1976 film. With that in mind, Birnbaum has implied that the new movie will feature found footage segments that will be scattered throughout the film. quickly pointed out, that this would actually be in keeping with King's original source material. If you look at the book, it's sprinkled with various "official" documents recounting the events of Carrie's disastrous prom night -- a literary technique known as epistolary, which is pretty much the written equivalent to found footage. However, this will likely be done through a series of interviews framing the story as opposed to the traditional Point-Of-View style that we've grown accustomed to over the last several years. But only time will tell how these scenes will be visually interpreted.

Chloe Moretz
Meanwhile, Deadline reports that Julianne Moore has been formally offered the role of Carrie's (Chloe Moretz) fanatical mother.

Chloe Moretz, on the other hand, spoke with in a recent interview, and here is what she had to say:

"I start that June 1st," says Moretz. "...It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it, but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director. I would never do it with someone that I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked with. She's the right woman for the job."

Released in 1974, "Carrie" was Stephen King's first published novel and tells the story of a high school girl who, through telekinetic powers, takes revenge on peers that have mocked her. Though Brian De Palma directed a highly-acclaimed film version in 1976, Moretz says that Peirce's take sticks more closely to King's text.

Julianne Moore
"I'm actually not looking at the original," she says, "even though De Palma's movie was one of the best movies ever made. It's completely iconic and I'm proud to be able to be doing a retooling of it. We're kind of going off the book. It's darker and much more psychological. More 'Black Swan.' You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different."

Most intriguing of Moretz's comments about the upcoming project was the hint that her Carrie White would offer a very different look for her, physically.

"It's something that's very different from me," Moretz says of Carrie's wardrobe. "It's an out of body thing. I'm becoming a totally different person for it. I'm letting go of all of my self-esteem issues and just kind of going into it. You have to."

Designed by Pierre-Luc Boucher, this fan-made teaser poster was posted to his Deviant Art page and soon found its way to Peirce as well Chloe Moretz. (See poster at the Top of this Article)

"That was a cool poster!" Moretz laughs. "Kim sent that to me. She said, 'Oh my god, you've got to look at this. It's really, really, really cool!' We both felt so pumped. Now we're chomping at the bit to get in there."

Carrie is scheduled for release on March 15, 2013. Check back for updates as they become available and catch Dark Shadows in theaters on May 11th.



Chris Hemsworth is The Huntsman
Even though Snow White and the Huntsman isn't due to hit theaters for several more weeks, Universal is currently in negotiations with screenwriter David Koepp to pen a sequel to the intriguing black fantasy film.

Koepp's credits include Jurassic Park, Spider-Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Deadline reports that the studio plans to fast-track the project so that Rupert Sanders can return to direct. Even though the first film has faced some direct competition -- Relativity's Mirror Mirror at the fore -- it sounds like Uni hasn't been fazed. 

Charlize Theron is Badass!!

What we can add to this, is that a little while back we did report that the sequel will be more focused on the Huntsmen as opposed to Snow White. So we still not sure, if that means that Kirsten Stewart and Charlize Theron will return for the sequel. What we do know is that Chris Hemsworth will be a very busy man for the next few years, whether his wielding a Hammer or a Axe.



In a recent interview at CinemaCon, 20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman had a few new bits of info on the studio's fifth installment of the Die Hard series, A Good Day to Die Hard. As we learned back in February, Jai Courtney (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) was cast in the role of John McClane's son. With this added element, Rothman sees two things that will set director John Moore's film apart:

Father and Son are both Die Hards

"One: John McClane (Bruce Willis), the ultimate American hero, goes to Russia. So talk about a fish out of water -- he's completely out of water," Rothman told Collider.
"And two: It's really a father-son story, which is that John McClane's been a great cop his whole life but he's been a pretty lousy father. He has a grown son who he's not really been in much touch with, and McClane thinks the son's a f*** up -- that's a technical term."

But why is McClane en route to Russia? Well, as it turns out, Junior's not in any trouble at all.

"So [John] goes to Russia, he thinks, to bail his son out of jail, and it turns out the son's not a f*** up, he's the antithesis of that," Rothman explained. "In fact, the apple has not fallen far from the tree, which is that the son is a badder ass John McClane than John McClane."

"It comes to the point in the story where they're basically the most wanted men in the entire Soviet Union, and it's the two of them against all of the bad guys. I've just gotta say, it's a classic, classic Die Hard."

So you do you really think that Jai Courtney could really pull of being a “Badder Ass” than Bruce Willis’ John McClane?? Mmmm We not quite sure about that, however this could prove a fun outing for the original Bad Ass.
