“The Sessions” gets an official poster – TORONTO 2012

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ben Lewin’s “The Sessions’ has been high on our list as we prepare for this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, for various reasons. The drama burst out of the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year surfing a wave of positive buzz. We are hearing that John Hawkes, Helen Hunt and William H. Macy are awards-worthy. And the subject matter, at the very least, can be described as “intriguing.”
Fox Searchlight dropped a poster for the upcoming film, which we’ll share below (in addition to the trailer). Here’s what we know about “Sessions” so far.
Back when it was winning over Sundance crowds, it was known as “The Surrogate.” It stars Hawkes (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”) as a predominantly paralyzed man who – on the encouragement of his therapist – attempts to experience sex with the help of a sex surrogate (Hunt). If that, alone, doesn’t pique your interest, the hint of the performances in the trailer below should have you lined up for “Sessions” when it opens on Nov. 8.
We’ll be covering Lewin’s crowd-pleasing drama, which is based on the autobiographical writings of journalist Mark O’Brien, during TIFF. And we expect to continue tracking the film’s progress through the lengthy awards season. For now, here’s the new poster, and the trailer (which has been around for a few weeks). Share your thoughts below:

Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” unveils an official poster – OSCARS

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oscar prognosticators penciled Daniel Day-Lewis into a Best Actor slot ever since it was first revealed that the incredible actor would portray Abraham Lincoln in a biography directed by Steven Spielberg. The convergence of talents all but guarantees multiple Oscar slots for the film, “Lincoln,” which reaches theaters on Nov. 9.
Of course, we won’t know for certain how many Oscar slots for which “Lincoln” can contend until we’ve seen the film. Picture and Director seem possible, obviously, which Actor appears to be a slam dunk.
Disney is dancing around a full trailer for “Lincoln,” which has to arrive soon. In the meantime, we have seen an official photo of the actor in the presidential role. And today, we get a poster. See it below.
A trailer could solidify “Lincoln” as a frontrunner for Best Picture gold. Or, at the very least, it could clarify the film’s position in the ever-changing Oscar race. But for right now, that stark, black-and-white poster is a glorious step in the right direction for a film we are chomping at the bit to see.
“Lincoln” arrives in theaters on Nov. 9, expanding to more theaters on Nov. 16. What do you think of the first official poster?

Why is Penn off the radar for his performance in This Must Be the Place

by John H. Foote

HollywoodNews.com: Why is Penn off the radar for his performance in This Must Be the Place, which opens in November?
The trailers have been circulating for more than a year now, and it is a Penn we have never seen before! Wearing a jet black fright wig, his face pasty white, his eyes lonely and sad and speaking in a voice that is best described as monotone and dead, he is the ultimate totally burned out rock star, bored with life because he has simply lived too much of it!! This is just the trailer, and yet one gets the impression Penn is doing work, again, that we have not experienced from him.
This is what I enjoy about Penn as an actor, he constantly takes the audience places they have never before been with him, creating characters that are diverse and original, never doing the same thing twice. Like all the great actors he thrives on challenge, and does not suffer fools. A complete professional, he shows up ready to work, with strong opinions as to how he will play the part, and the finest directors know it is wise to turn him loose and let him create.

Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” Trailer

By Robert Hamer
HollywoodNews.com: Since Ang Lee’s involvement was first announced, Life of Pi had been near – if not at – the top of nearly every Oscar prediction on the web (including from yours truly). With the first trailer hitting the web this morning, buzz no doubt will only intensify from here.
In case you’ve been out of the loop for the past several months, Lee’s latest is an adaptation of the 2001 bestseller about a young man stranded on a lifeboat with a tiger that ends up being about God and the meaning of life as seen through the myriad viewpoints of Christianity, Islam and Hinduism.

Ben Affleck new film trailer – ARGO

HollywoodNews.com: I haven’t read the true story that this film is based on (if you want to, here’s the WIRED story). But the general idea seems like just the sort of great story that lends itself to a fun movie. And the film is filled to the gills with terrific character actors (John Goodman, Bryan Cranston, Victor Garber, Kyle Chandler, Tate Donovan, Phillip, Adrienne Barbeau, and my personal favorite, Zeljko Ivanek, etc).

And while I’m among those who didn’t care for The Town, I’m a big fan of Affleck’s Gone Baby Gone so he’s still batting a solid 0.500 so far. My only carp is with the trailer itself. It’s a 150-second spot that clearly divided into three acts. The first 45-seconds or so explains the time, setting, and political crisis that kicks the story into gear, while the middle 45-seconds goes into the actual scheme that made this story worth telling. Instead of ending at the 90-second mark, with the story fully explained and the stakes completely established, Warner Bros. felt the need to tack on an additional 45-seconds of montage footage, set to ‘Dream On’ that serves no purpose other than to reestablish the seriousness of the situation and spoil various bits of character and plot that likely goes down in the second or third acts.
The film looks fine, and kudos to Warner Bros for letting this clearly adult-skewing drama go out with an R-rating. But the trailer is 2/3 terrific and 1/3 pure needless spoilers. If you feel like watching purely out of curiosity, I suggest you stop right at the 90-second mark. Okay, your turn to share.

The Expendables 2 are back! Track ‘em, find ‘em, kill ‘em

HollywoodNews.com: They’re back! and it’s time to reload! Download the trailer for this summer’s highly anticipated sequel, THE EXPENDABLES 2, featuring more action (and explosions) than ever before! Everyone is expendable and the crew has a plan. Track ‘em, find ‘em, kill ‘em.

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.
THE EXPENDABLES 2 will be in theaters everywhere August 17th, 2012

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II trailer with The Hunger Games

By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Yes, as expected by everyone and their cat, Lionsgate will indeed unleash the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II two weeks from tomorrow, attached exclusively to prints of The Hunger Games. It’s an obvious move, using one massively popular franchise to prop up a new franchise that shares at least some core demographics. But what is most heartening about the move is that Lionsgate will in fact be keeping the trailer offline that entire opening weekend. That’s right, Twi-hards, there may be crummy YouTube bootlegs popping up online on Friday morning, but if you want to see a quality copy before Monday, March 26th (at 3:00am PST… really guys?), you actually have to buy a ticket to The Hunger Games over its opening weekend. What a novel concept!
It seems like a pretty obvious concept, actually debuting big movie trailers in theaters, preferably attached to new movies that share audience demographics (and theoretically giving the new movie a small boost over opening weekend). But, with the exception of Warner Bros’ advertising with the last two Batman pictures, no other studio seems to have the good sense to do this. As you of course recall, Warner Bros. kept official versions of most of the various Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises teasers and trailers offline during the opening weekend of the Warner Bros films they were attached to. If you wanted to see the first teaser for The Dark Knight Rises, you had to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II in theaters over its opening weekend. Ditto for The Dark Knight, which debuted its first trailer with I Am Legend. Eleven years ago, New Line Cinema famously debuted the first teaser for the Lord of the Rings trilogy with prints of Thirteen Days. We can debate whether the Cuban Missile Crisis drama got a boost, but I distinctly remember seeing signs at my theater warning patrons that they could not buy a ticket to Thirteen Days and then get a refund after the Lord of the Rings teaser played.
You’d think that more studios would do this, exclusively attaching anticipated trailers to their own films and using that exclusivity as a carrot to get fans into theaters on opening weekend. You’d think Disney would have had the [...]
