Beyond the luxury yacht parties and free-flowing champagne in the French Riviera, darkness lurks—at least according to a new television drama created by Oscar-winning screenwriter and director Neil Jordan.
Sky Atlantic’s Riviera , launching later in 2017, is a stylish, sun-kissed thriller that delves inside the opulent playground of wealthy elites in the south of France, with all its debauchery, double-dealing, and perhaps even murder.
Riviera stars Hollywood actor Julia Stiles as Georgina, the American wife of billionaire Constantine Clios. When Clios, played by Anthony LaPaglia, is killed in a yacht explosion just a year into their marriage, she tries to uncover the truth about his death. Georgina discovers the extent of her husband’s questionable business dealings and navigates a complex web of deceit and depravity to get to the truth of how he died.
We are delighted to reveal the first official trailer and a selection of brand new images and one-sheet for the highly anticipated upcoming JASON BOURNE.
JASON BOURNE sees original actor and director, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, return to the iconic series they created along with Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones.
“Jason Bourne isn’t a super hero; he doesn’t wear a cape or a mask. He’s not one of those kinds of guys. He is just an ordinary man. I think when people watch Jason Bourne they can imagine how they might react in those situations and those circumstances, and when you see him thinking his way through and coming up with a plan and executing his plan, that’s incredibly exciting.” – Paul Greengrass
“It has taken us a long time to come back because we didn’t have the right story before. The world needed to change and then there comes that moment when it makes sense. You know when it feels right and that’s when you do it, not before.” – Paul Greengrass
JASON BOURNE will be released in cinemas July 2017.
Check out the trailer for Julia’s upcoming film, Great Gilly Hopkins. Plus a brand new promotional still!
Based on the book of the same name, “Gilly” Hopkins (Nélisse) is a mean, brash young girl who is headed for yet another foster home. She hates living with different people all the time and just wants to settle in with her birth mother. Gilly doesn’t like the look of her new foster mom, Trotter (Kathy Bates) and decides she is going to hate her for the rest of her life.
But then, when Nonnie (Glenn Close), comes to Trotter’s house and tells her that she will take Gilly home…and that’s when she realizes that she really wants to be with Trotter.
Daniel Alfredson’s claim to fame involves directing the second and third installments of the Swedish “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” trilogy. But his forays into English language filmmaking haven’t fared so well. His last outing was the tepid “Kidnapping Mr. Heineken,” which was followed by “Go With Me,” which premiered last September at the Venice Film Festival to a lukewarm response.
Based on the book by Castle Freeman Jr, and starring Julia Stiles, Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta and Hal Holbrook, the story follows a young woman who is assaulted and stalked by local logging town thug Blackway. She refuses to leave town, and a posse of sorts comes together to take on Blackway.
Go With Me opens on April 22nd. Check out the first international trailer below, and view the screencaps here.
Back in August, Vertical Entertainment snatched up the U.S. rights to Lluís Quílez’s supernatural thriller Out of the Dark, and now we’ve got the film’s first international trailer to share with you. While the trailer is a bit rough around the edges, the film itself looks pretty damn creepy. Check it out below and a few screengrabs here in the gallery.
“Out of the Dark is much more than it seems on the surface. We think it will surprise genre fans with its ability to reach beyond just the scares and great storytelling and have a thought-provoking motif that will stay with them well after they see it,” says Vertical Entertainment’s Rich Goldberg.
Sarah Harriman’s (Stiles) family has relocated from London to a small town in Colombia to take over her father’s business. Moving into a beautiful old home and having her father nearby, their new life in Santa Clara seems like a promising place to raise their young daughter Hannah. But Sarah and her husband, Paul (Speedman), soon learn of an ancient legend that haunts the town and has created a culture where ghosts have become the answer to anything that goes wrong.
As they settle into their new surroundings Hannah begins to act strangely, wandering off into the jungle as if following something, and suddenly falls ill. When Sarah and Paul begin to see disfigured ghost-like creatures around the house Hannah disappears, sending them on a frantic search to find her. As they delve deeper into the town’s superstitions they discover a shocking secret about their family and must uncover the truth in order to save their daughter
