A new Trailer for “Snowden” shows off the biopic as a potential Oscar player

Earlier today, a new full length Trailer dropped for Snowden, the Oliver Stone helmed biopic of a certain notorious whistleblower. This conspiracy/political thriller seems right up Stone’s wheelhouse, with an A-list cast on to help, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the title role. We’ve only seen little teases for the film so far, along with a delayed release from last year (when the movie apparently wasn’t finished yet) to this year, so it’s pretty much been an X factor. Now, a bit more is known, so some musings can be done. Of course, you can see the Trailer at the end of the piece, but for now, let’s dive in and see what we can potentially make of this one…
For those unaware, this is a biopic of Edward Snowden (played here by Gordon-Levitt), who we see go from dedicated work in the military to the work with the CIA that will make him famous/infamous, while carrying on a loving relationship with Lindsay Mills (Shailene Woodley). As he becomes more and more disillusioned with the government’s surveillance practices, he ends up deciding to speak out and show the American people what’s going on. Once he’s outed as a whistleblower though, the response is not exactly what he expected. Stone obviously directs and co-writes here with Kieran Fitzgerald (based on books by Luke Harding and Anatoly Kucherena), and he’s got a hell of a cast in place. In addition to Gordon-Levitt and Woodley in what seems to be the juiciest roles, there’s Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Rhys Ifans, Melissa Leo, Timothy Olyphant, Zachary Quinto, Joely Richardson, Keith Stanfield, and Tom Wilkinson, among others. Cinematography here is done by Academy Award winner Anthony Dod Mantle.
Just going by the Trailer, it looks like this should be closer to Stone’s highly regarded works than his also rans. Gordon-Levitt seems very good too, though his accent could throw some off. I didn’t mind it, however, as he actually sounds like Snowden. Woodley is in a role that voters often take a shine too, so if she has the material, I’d expect her to receive some praise. Mostly, it just looks like a great companion piece to CitizenFour, offering up a fictional version of that award winning documentary. Provided Stone can keep some of his conspiracy theory tendencies in check, there appears to be a lot to like here.
Speculating on awards, there’s a chance that this could be […]

“Star Trek” sequel begins principal photography

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For a little while there, it sounded like J.J. Abrams wouldn’t be able to return to the “Star Trek” realm for an anticipated follow-up to his massive franchise reboot. The man’s busy, and on his “Super 8” promo tour, he hedged bets on coming back for “Star Trek 2.” But rest easy, Trekkies. Abrams is back in the director’s chair, and production on the sequel is officially underway.
Paramount Pictures announced that principal photography has commenced in Los Angeles, as the production eyes a May 17, 2013 release. Returning cast members include Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, and Anton Yelchin. They are joined by new cast members Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve and Peter Weller.
The “Star Trek 2” script was written by Alex Kurtzman, Robert Orci and “Lost” mastermind Damon Lindelof.

Benedict Cumberbatch snags major “Star Trek” sequel role

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” sequel already ranks high on our Need-To-See list (though we’ll have to wait until 2013) until we’re able to take the next adventure with Capt. Kirk (Chris Pine), Dr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the crew of the Enterprise. But new casting news has us looking for a wormhole to 2013 so we can see this sequel now.
Benedict Cumberbatch has been confirmed as Abrams’ villain for the sequel, according to THR. Though some recognize him for the part he plays in Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” Cumberbatch also currently is redefining the role of Sherlock Holmes in the modern, BBC take on the classic detective. (If you haven’t caught up with the series yet, please do so. It’s amazing, and Cumberbatch is unreal.)
“Although sources would not comment on the character and Abrams keeping story details close to the vest, it is believed that Cumberbatch will play the movie’s villain,” the trade notes.
Cumberbatch also can be seen as Gary Oldman’s right-hand spy in “Tinker, Tailor,” and he’s lending his voice to two featured characters in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit.” To say that he’s blowing up at the moment would be an understatement. It couldn’t happen to a more talented actor.

Zachary Quinto formally comes out as a gay man

HollywoodNews.com: Zachary Quinto has never formally addressed his sexuality, but has now come out as an openly gay man.
Quinto was recently addressing his work with the revival of the play ‘Angels in America’ to ‘New York’ magazine when he revealed what many had speculated about, states RadarOnline.com.
While commenting that the work had been the most challenging and rewarding, he revealed he also felt that “as a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”
Do you think it’s good that he opened up about this or should he not have to?

Damon Lindelof diving into “Star Trek” sequel script

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Damon Lindelof went off the grid after “Lost” wrapped.
Hard to blame him. The media blasted its white-hot spotlight on Lindelof and his creative partner, Carlton Cuse, as the primetime television phenom approached its highly anticipated conclusion. Those who follow Lidelof on Twitter (@DamonLidelof) received infrequent updates during his European vacation … most of them about food or his inability to watch his beloved Lakers team as they made their recent title run.
But today, new news broke on Lindelof’s feed. He’s back in L.A. He’s getting back to work. And his next project is a script for the sequel to J.J. Abram’s “Star Trek” reboot, scheduled for release in 2012.
“Vacation officially over,” Lindelof tweeted. “Ready to boldly go.”
So are we. Last summer’s “Star Trek” reboot but the franchise back on the pop culture map, plugging younger actors like Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto into timeless roles once occupied by William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
TrekMovie.com culled a few details on the direction of the sequel, which will be co-written by “Trek” collaborators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. The duo claims to the fan site that they have a “front runner” for a villain — stop hoping for Khan — and that the story will focus primarily on the newly established Enterprise team learning to maneuver as a family.
It’s going to be difficult living up to Abrams’ first pass at “Trek.” The pieces are in place, particularly with this new cast. But the next step will tell if we have a short experiment on our hands, or the makings of a lengthy run, similar to the kind enjoyed by the initial “Trek” actors. Lord knows there are plenty of stories from the “Trek” canon to tell. Now we just have to wait and see if Lindelof, Kurtzman and Orci choose wisely.
