Far From Men, Viggo Mortensen
There is no shortage of serious movies hitting the festival circuit this fall, but only one of them boasts the distinction of being based on the short story "L'Hôte" by Albert Camus. That's right, the philosopher's work is behind the latest from writer/director David Oelhoeffen, and with "Far From Men" hitting both Venice and TIFF in the next couple of weeks, two new clips are here to go with the trailer that landed a week ago.

Far From Men, Viggo Mortensen
You may have noticed a change in actor Viggo Mortensen in the last few years. The actor’s last major studio effort was “A History of Violence” in 2005 and even then it was a David Cronenberg project. Aside from mini-major studio projects like The Weinstein Company's "The Road" and Sony Pictures Classics "A Dangerous Method" (both of them still relatively small, limited release pictures), the actor has steered away from major studio work. And in recent years, that’s been even more pronounced.

The Two Faces Of January
“I love the cruelty in her writing,” "The Two Faces Of January" writer/director Hossein Amini said at the Sydney Film Festival (via Variety) about author Patricia Highsmith, whose novel serves as the source material for his film. “Viggo really embraces the ugly side of characters…not a lot of stars do.” And you can see how ugly Viggo Mortensen gets with this new trailer for the thriller.

The Two Faces Of January

Viggo Mortensen Lord Of The Rings
If “The Lord Of the Rings” movies were universally beloved with Peter Jackson sweeping the Oscars for “Return Of The King” as a kind of “well done” overall achievement award, then his “Hobbit” films thus far have received possibly the opposite response (or at least a far more divisive one). Jackson’s predisposition for CGI seems to have taken over from practical effects and not only have fans noticed.

The Salvation
Competition is obviously the most prestigious place to play during the Cannes Film Festival, but the riches of the fest is such that the sidebar sections often have terrific discoveries too. Two new first looks have arrived from two films playing outside competition. The first is Lisandro Alonso’s “Jauja” starring Viggo Mortensen. It’s playing in the Un Certain Regard section alongside films like Ryan Gosling’s debut “Lost River” and Ned Benson’s “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

The Two Faces Of January
Sometimes, you just want to watch a trio of actors bite into some decent material and have at it. And that's the hope for "The Two Faces Of January," which brings together Oscar Isaac, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen for a sun-baked thriller.

The Two Faces Of January
A sun-dappled backdrop against which intrigue, murder and romance play out sounds right up our alley, and certainly, the associated names with "The Two Faces of January" are impressive. It's based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith ("The Talented Mr. Ripley"), is written and directed by Hossein Amini (the guy who penned "Drive") and it features three excellent leads: Oscar Isaac, Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. And certainly, this first clip from the film shows some promise.

No, Viggo Mortensen isn't starring in some new Marvel movie, despite the name of the developing drama "Captain Fantastic." Instead, the actor will be joining "28 Hotel Rooms" director Matt Ross' film about "an idealistic father who, after a decade of living off the grid in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, must return with his six young kids to assimilate back into society."
