The Upcoming Films Thread
 
I figured instead of starting a new thread for every single future film, why not just put them all in one thread. Post trailers, news, speculation (careful with spoilers).

More news about P.T. Anderson's 'The Master'. Looks like the followup to his masterpiece 'There Will Be Blood' will focus on the beginnings of a Scientology like religion with Philip Seymour Hoffman playing a character based on L. Ron Hubbard's life with Jaquin Phoenix playing a drifter who becomes his right hand man.



Official Trailer

Teaser

There was an impromptu screening of the film and it's gotten rave reviews. Talk of best pic win and career-best performances from Phoenix and Hoffman, which is saying a lot. I like how they retained Jonny Greenwood to do the score after the work he did in TWBB. You can tell it will have the same tone (both sound and visually).

Reaction from the Screening:
michael whittle @michaelwhittle
Possibly the best film watching experience I've ever had. #THEMASTER70MM

Michael Gallagher @TotallySketch
Just saw "The Master". A movie has never made me feel quite like this one did. I can't describe it or even rate it. I am speechless.

Andrew P. Alderete @aaldere1
The Master was amazing. Oscars all over this one.

Logan Doe @LoganDoe
@prfessorbigsock Hoffman is one of the finest actors alive. The Master is (more) proof. #themaster

Jesse Crall @jessecrall
The Master: B+ hazy, meandering story with beautiful staging and headed by Phoenix's brilliant, year's-best performance. @kristapley

Matthew Roth @Super_Matts
THE MASTER is...interesting...I'll be thinking about it for days #THEMASTER70MM J Phoenix and P S Hoffman are out of this world

The only extended reaction came from Hollywood-Elsewhere and their source "bobfilm."

"I'm still digesting everything I saw, but it was pretty amazing. It was like a strange fever dream. [But] not audience friendly AT ALL. An ambiguous ending and not one likable character. And without any 'milkshake' lines, it probably won't have the breakthrough that There Will Be Blood had... There are three or four scenes between Phoenix and Hoffman that are barn burners. It also containts the best work Amy Adams has ever done... Phoenix WILL win Best Actor unless Daniel Day Lewis blows us away with [his] Lincoln performance. This is Raging Bull territory for him. Believe it or not, his performance is stranger than that fake doc he made. The only way I can describe him is 'animalistic.' (I think the Master title refers to more of a dog and his master. At least that was the vibe I got).. The style feels like Terrence Malick by way of There Will Be Blood."

Get on it. One of the best acting performances ever by Day-Lewis IMO.

Also looking forward to these...

I don't know. Seems like something that could either be epic or a muddled mess. Looks like there's a lot going on in that one, hopefully it's not too over the top.

For the rest of 2012 I'm looking forward to Bourne Legacy, Looper, and The Great Gatsby.

Yeah, wonder what the deal is with that. You'd think they'd at least release a teaser or something. All we have is a pic or two.

the film is over 2 1/2 hours long, so I don't think the Wachowskis missed anything from the book. However, I think it is going to be heavily criticized for being "too high browed".

82 minutes though?

I read Life of Pi and loved it. Heard there was gonna be a movie so I got excited. The trailer seems too theatrical for me though. :\ I'd rather have Life of Pi without all the special effects because truthfully, I doubt the story by itself needs all of the extras.

Looking forward to Lincoln, I think it's called Gangster Squad? (with Tom Hardy who is rising up my list of actors), and Wreck it Ralph.

Off the top that's what I remember putting in my to see list.

Wow, The Master sounds great, will have to check out. Some others that interest me for the rest of the year are Django, Pi, Killing them Softly, Cloud Atlas, Gatsby, Looper, Hobbit. Looks like a good end of the year.

Can't wait.

I love PTA's art and I am absolutely fascinated by Scientology. On top of that, this cast looks amazing (as always for PTA).

Too early to say this is a shoe-in for Best Picture? Only if the Coen Brothers have something planned. They are the only American filmmakers who can match PTA when he is on his game.

FIRST LOOK: Daniel Day-Lewis embodies 'Lincoln' in Steven Spielberg's historical drama



Penny for your thoughts?

Long-range paparazzi (and the occasional sneaky fellow diner) grabbed snapshots of Daniel Day-Lewis as he was shooting Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln last fall.

But in this exclusive new image from the upcoming historical drama (out Nov. 9), we finally see the My Left Foot and There Will Be Blood Oscar-winner in full character, and the result is even more uncanny than originally expected.

Spielberg tells EW that Day-Lewis captures not just the likeness of the 16th U.S. president in the below image, but also the intangible, pensive quality that made him a great leader. “Lincoln had a very, very complicated – and at the same time, extremely clear — inner life,” the director says. “He thought things out. He talked things out. He argued both sides of every issue. And he was very careful in making any decision. As a matter of fact, his opponents and his enemies criticized him often for being impossibly slow to a decision.”

The movie has also taken a long time to get to the screen, although Spielberg made a relatively fast decision roughly a decade ago when he optioned the rights to historian Doris Kearns Goodwin’s book, Team of Rivals, about Lincoln and his combative cabinet, when she was still just researching it. The screenplay, adapted by Angels in America playwright Tony Kushner (husband of EW columnist Mark Harris), excerpts just a portion of that 2005 best-seller.

Lincoln focuses on the last four months of the president’s ’s life and the political strategizing he undertook at the close of the Civil War to ensure that slavery would be forever outlawed. “Our movie is really about a working leader who must make tough decisions and get things done in the face of overwhelming opposition,” Spielberg says.

He said the film begins with “Lincoln’s realization that the Emancipation Proclamation, the thing he is most known for, was simply a war powers act that would easily be struck down by any number of lawyers after the cessation of hostilities after the Civil War,” Spielberg says. “He needed to abolish slavery by constitutional measure — and that’s where we start.”
Among the other central characters are David Strathairn, as Lincoln’s loyal Secretary of State, William Seward; Lincoln’s sons, Tad (Dark Shadows‘ Gulliver McGrath) and Robert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt); his wife Mary Todd Lincoln (Sally Field); and “one of his most engaging and challenging adversaries, Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones), a radical member of Lincoln’s own party,” Spielberg says.

‘Establish a little authenticity’

There are numerous reports about Day-Lewis attempting to fully immerse himself in the mindset of someone who lived during the mid-1860s by avoiding the trappings of 21st — not to mention 20th — century life during the shoot, but Spielberg says his star never delved so deeply into character that he refused to acknowledge the modern world. “Daniel was always conscious of his contemporary surroundings,” Spielberg says. “Daniel never went into a fugue state. He did not channel Lincoln. All that stuff is just more about gossip than it is about technique.”

People on set did refer to the actor as “Mr. President,” including Spielberg, but the director says that was just part of the effort to maintain atmosphere. “I was calling [all] the actors by their character names,” he says. “That was something I felt was important to establish a little authenticity, maybe even more for me than for them.”

Spielberg had his own transcendent Lincoln moment years ago, when he toured an archive of the president’s possessions in Springfield, Ill. “I put on white surgical gloves and was given the chance to actually touch the dress that Mary was wearing when Lincoln was assassinated. And I had the chance to also pick up — and hold in my hand — his hat.”

What went through his own mind in that thoughtful moment?

Spielberg pauses, then says with a laugh: “That I would never be as tall as him.”
