New Teaser Trailer Available For Nacho Vigolando’s ‘Colossal’ with Anne Hathaway

A new teaser trailer is available for Nacho Vigolando‘s Colossal with Anne Hathawy (The Dark Knight Rises, Interstellar). The film is currently playing at the Sundance Film Festival and is slated for a domestic release this April 7th. Colossal is a comedic action-thriller with an interesting concept. It follows Gloria, a New Yorker forced to move back to small town America after her boyfriend throws her out for her eccentric party-every-night lifestyle. Upon moving home, Gloria gets a job working at the local bar and continues her excessive drinking, until one morning she wakes up and discovers (in a state of disbelief) that Seoul, South Korea had been terrorized by a giant, Godzilla-like monster the night before. As the phenomenon progresses, she slowly comes to suspect a strange link between herself and the Korean-terrorizing monster.

Strange? Corny? Yes. Hilarious? Yes. Worth seeing? Judging even by the short teaser trailer, definitely! Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigolando (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial) wrote and directed the film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. The cast includes Dan Stevens (A Walk Among the Tombstones, Beauty and the Beast), Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We’re the Millers), Tim Blake Nelson (Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, Lincoln), Austin Stowell (Whiplash, Bridge of Spies), Rukiya Bernard (Supernatural, Accidental Obsession), and Agam Darshi (2012, Sanctuary). Check back for additional trailers, and remember this one hits theaters on April 7th!

Steven Spielberg’s New Cold-War Drama ‘Bridge of Spies’ Opening In Theaters This Week

Finally after months of anticipation and sitting through rounds of film festivals around the globe, Oscar-winner Steven Spielberg‘s (Jaws, Saving Private Ryan) new Cold-War drama Bridge of Spies is opening on big screens across the country this week. Starring Spielberg-regular Tom Hanks (Catch Me If You Can, Forrest Gump) in the lead role, the film focuses on James B. Donovan, an attorney who was sent to Soviet Russia by the CIA in order to negotiate the release of suspected U-2 Spy Plane pilot Francis G. Powers. The script was originally penned by screenwriter Matt Charman, but was then re-worked by Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, No Country For Old Men) before Spielberg began the process of principle photography. Also starring in the film are actors Mark Rylance (The Other Boleyn Girl, Anonymous), Domenick Lombardozzi (Phone Booth, The Wire), Victor Verhaeghe (August Rush, The Wolf of Wall Street), Alan Alda (MASH, The Aviator), and Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), with Austin Stowell (Behind the Candelabra, Whiplash) starring as Powell. This will be Spielberg’s first directorial project since 2012’s Lincoln, which earned the director two Oscar-nods for Best Director and Best Picture. Look for Bridge of Spies in theaters this Friday. The trailer is available here on MADE.

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Bridge of Spies’ Opening In Theaters October 16th


Steven Spielberg has been busy acting as producer to a number of projects since his last directorial feature Lincoln in 2012 with features like Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Hundred-Foot Journey, and Jurassic World. But fans will get to see his latest project featuring his Saving Private Ryan and Catch Me If You Can collaborating actor Tom Hanks open on big screens this October 16th. The film is titled Bridge of Spies and follows Hanks as attorney James Donovan, who was recruited to negotiate the release of Francis Gary Powers, a U-2 pilot who was shot down and held prisoner by the KGB under suspicion of espionage during the Cold War in 1960. Filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen (The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men) were brought on to rewrite the original screenplay before principle photography began on the film, which stars Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Birdman), Mark Rylance (The Other Boleyn Girl, Blitz), Austin Stowell (Love and Honor, Whiplash), and Alan Alda (MASH, The Aviator). Seeing as it was produced by Walt Disney Pictures, I think that Spielberg intentionally steered away from a lot of Restricted-content (and it did, in fact, receive a PG-13 rating), but with Hanks in the spotlight it should prove a solid endeavor all the same. Last time we heard about this one a poster had just become available via twitter, but now the full length trailer is available here on MADE! Enjoy!

New Poster Available For Upcoming Steven Spielberg Drama ‘Bridge of Spies’ With Tom Hanks

The upcoming drama from Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Lincoln) and Walt Disney Pictures titled Bridge of Spies has just released a new poster to prep audiences for the upcoming October release. Working from a script that was revised for the final cut by Joel and Ethan Coen (The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men), Spielberg directs leading man Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, The DaVinci Code) in the story of James Donovan, who negotiated the release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was being held under suspicion of espionage by the KGB in 1960. Also appearing in the film are actors Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone, Birdman), Mark Rylance (The Other Boleyn Girl, Blitz), Austin Stowell (Love and Honor, Whiplash), and Alan Alda (MASH, The Aviator). With a poster already out and seeing as we’re this far into post-production we should see a trailer release sometime in the near future. My biggest concern is that this is pretty adult-content subject matter for Disney to be covering… hopefully they’re letting Spielberg have most of the artistic control on this one. Stay tuned.

Composer John Williams (left) and director Steven Spielberg (right) have worked together on more than 25 projects, including Jaws, Indiana Jones, E.T., Hook, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, and War of the Worlds.

The latest project from acclaimed director Steven Spielberg (Jaws, Saving Private Ryan) seems to be getting closer to completion as we approach it’s October release date. Now titled Bridge of Spies, the movie stars Oscar-winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Road to Perdition) as attorney James Donovan, who negotiated the release of KGB-held U-2 spy-plane pilot Francis Gary Powers after he was captured flying over Soviet airspace and imprisoned for espionage in the 1960s. The film’s title actually refers to a real bridge located in West Berlin that served as an exchange of captured spies by the various US and Soviet intelligence agencies. Making up the supporting cast includes actors Amy Rylan (Gone Baby Gone, Birdman), Mark Rylance (The Other Boelyn Girl, Blitz), Alan Alda (MASH, The Aviator), and Austin Stowell (Behind The Candelabra, Whiplash) in a script by Matt Charman and treatments by Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, No Country For Old Men). It was also recently announced that Oscar-winning composer John Williams (Star Wars, Schindler’s List) will be composing the score for the new drama, which will be Steven Spielberg’s first directorial release since Lincoln in 2012. Lincoln received a Best Picture nomination and won Daniel Day Lewis a third Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role, but no pressure on Spielberg or Hanks! All in all, it sounds like we’ve got a pretty great movie to look forward to in the fall, so stay tuned for an upcoming trailer.
