As already reported, it'll be out in the USA on July 29th! I still haven't seen it yet, despite all the preview screenings that have taken place in the last few weeks. No time. But I hope to see it before July 29th, so I can share my own thoughts. Thus far, all my usual trusted sources who have seen the film praise it heavily! So, my expectations are high! Though, maybe I should lower them a bit.

I first profiled this film in March on the old site; at the time, I couldn't find an official synopsis, so wasn't entirely sure what it was about; although I did post a teaser trailer that gave us some idea - a teaser that's since been taking down, but, thankfully, it was replaced with a new one, which I embedded below.

A film I profiled over a month ago was picked up for international distribution by Other Angle Pictures, a Paris-based company; a French time travel/slavery comedy titled Case Départ, which I understand translates as Return To The Start (or Beginning).

I don't think this movie needs much of an intro around here. We've written and talked about it enough times. But if you're just joining us, and you've never heard of it, I'd recommend you search the current (and old) site for previous posts on it.

Talking to Collider about all his upcoming projects, including the Tarzan reboot I've mentioned twice on this site, Hustle & Flow/Black Snake Moan director, Craig Brewer had this to say, with regards to the sensitive, potential explosive racial nature of the material... “I don’t want to give too much away of what I’m doing, but that is something I have thought about, and something I am addressing, and I can just say that “Tarzan” is a love story really, the movie I want to tell, that’s on the backdrop of this adventure, where Tarzan has to reconnect to his love, Jane, and to Africa itself. I know there’s probably going to be some concerns, in terms of racial attitudes toward the original films, and towards the books, but it’s territory that I’ve been in before… I don’t want to say I’m comfortable in it, because I think it’s best to stay a little uncomfortable, and be mindful of things that need to be sensitive, but I think it’s important to tell a great story from one of the most famous literary characters of all time.”

Firs reported back in February, Idris Elba is one of the stars of Ridley Scott’s super secretive upcoming sci-fi thriller film, Prometheus that may or may not be a prequel to Alien. The film is currently shooting in the UK under strict secrecy, and oh-so very little has been released about its plotline, and its characters. No images, video, nothing.
