Erster Trailer zu Guillermo DelToros Version von Creature from the Black Lagoon als Love-Story, gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut und obendrauf kommt das Poster von NC-Fav James Jean oben.

The Shape of Water

From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER - an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Rounding out the cast are Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones.

The Snowman

Michael Fassbender (X-Men series), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation), Charlotte Gainsbourg (Independence Day: Resurgence), Val Kilmer (Heat) and Academy Award® winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) star in The Snowman, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on Jo Nesbø’s global bestseller.

When an elite crime squad’s lead detective (Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

The Snowman is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (The Theory of Everything, Les Misérables), as well as Piodor Gustafsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy).

A Working Title Production—in association with Another Park Film—the thriller is executive produced by Nesbø, Niclas Salomonsson, Martin Scorsese, Alfredson, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger.

The film was shot entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan.

  • Cool ‘Nico 1988’, Biopic About Velvet Underground Singer, To Open Venice Horizons

    Set in Paris, Prague, Nuremberg, Manchester, the Polish countryside and the Roman seaside, Nico 1988 is a road-movie dedicated to the last years of Nico. One of Andy Warhol’s muses, the singer of the Velvet Underground and a woman of legendary beauty, Nico lived a second life after the story known to all when she began her career as a solo artist. Her music is noted as some of the most original to come out of the 1970s and 1980s.

    “This is the story of Nico after Nico,” said Nicchiarelli, who directed Cosmonauta, which debuted in Venice in 2009. “People usually talk about her only in relation to men when she was young: Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan, Alain Delon, Iggy Pop. I once read an interview that “at the age 34 Nico was finished.” That’s not true…I wanted to tell the story of her journey from a different point of view.

  • ‘Venom’ Will Draw on the Work of John Carpenter and David Cronenberg!

    For Venom, Sony has tapped director Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer to bring the menacing arachnoid to the masses. In the comic books and the film, Venom is hatched after reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) bonds with an alien symbiote — a union that gives him deadly powers. “I’ve always been drawn to the more anti-hero superheroes,” Fleischer told Variety. “There’s a dark element to [Venom] and a wit that has always appealed to me.”

    In first ever real story details, Fleischer says the film will deal with Venom’s origins and with the Jekyll and Hyde relationship Brock has with the alien symbiote. “They become almost a third being, which is what Venom is,” Fleischer says. “There’s a famous quote: ‘You’re Eddie Brock. I’m the symbiote. Together we are Venom.’”

    While that’s exciting and all, Columbia Pictures’ president Sanford Panitch made eyebrows raise when he said that Venom will draw on the work of John Carpenter or David Cronenberg while promising “more pop and fun.”

    It’s still uncertain if Spider-Man will appear in the film, however, does tease: “If we get lucky enough to make more than one [Venom film] and continue the franchise, there are lots of opportunities.”

    Venom is scheduled to be released October 5, 2018, making it a Halloween affair.
