Out Of The Furnace Christian Bale Woody Harrelson
The bond between brothers is one that can't be broken by distance or circumstance, but it can be tested, and it's that chain that's rattled in the upcoming "Out Of The Furnace." As the film gets ready to roll into the awards season mix, a brand new trailer is here, and it looks quite promising indeed.

Man, we really feel you parents out there this fall, because there aren't many options out there you can enjoy along with your little ones. Earlier today, Disney dropped a rather underwhelming spot for "Frozen," and now Relativity is trying to lure you with "Free Birds," which looks equally uninspired. Though we will say, the choice for the voice leads we would love to see pair up in an actual movie at some point.

True Detective
Back in June, we caught the first glimpse of Cary Fukunaga's first foray into dramatic television with HBO's “True Detective,” and since then we had the opportunity to chat with the “Jane Eyre” director about both his vision for the project and two topnotch leads, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. “I saw a stark bland American landscape, and two really strong male voices,” he said. “That for me was kinda the drive, to get into the psychology of two men—one more of a philosopher and the other a non-critical-thinking man, and just to play with that world and observe.” Well now, we've got a much clearer look at exactly what Fukanaga described for the show, it's very clear that his vision will be making it to the small screen intact.

Mel Gibson, Woody Harrelson & Sinbad Were All Considered To Lead 'Stretch Armstrong' Over The Years

Hollywood is littered with projects that have been in development for years and even decades, passing from one producer to another, from one studio to the next, from one writer to even more scribes, like an orphan no one wants to care for. And one of those projects is "Stretch Armstrong." In the history of this blog alone, Nicholas Stoller was once hired to pen the screenplay, with Rob Letterman ("Monsters Vs. Aliens") attached to direct. That incarnation never happened, and for a while Taylor Lautner was attached to star, before he was bounced off the project once everyone realized he wasn't going to be able to carry a movie on his shoulders outside of "Twilight." But the history of "Stretch Armstrong" is even stranger...

"RELEAAAAAASSSE MEEEEEEEEEEE," Eddie Vedder bellows all over this first trailer for Scott Cooper's "Out Of The Furnace," adding a pretty dense layer of fromage to what looks like a pretty gritty little drama. Let's hope it's just a case of good movie, not so hot trailer? We'll see, but let's dive in...

With a release date set right in the heart of the awards season, Relativity are now starting the push for "Crazy Heart" director Scott Cooper's "Out Of The Furnace." We'd wager a trailer is likely just around the corner, but until then, the first official images from the movie are here to remind you what a star studded affair this truly is.

Under certain circumstances, selling drugs to earn a living becomes a choice for many. Humans are nothing if not survivors, eking out a living by any means necessary to put food on the table, pay bills, and stay afloat. Beyond teaching viewers the correct way to pronounce sheeeeit, "The Wire" gracefully portrayed the lack of options for many people, proving the drug game isn't everything, it's the only thing. But what if we could actually choose what we want to do with our lives, and the moral quandary wasn't an issue? Just like Sonny told the "The Godfather," "There's a lot of money in that white powder."

Review: 'Now You See Me' Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher & Mark Ruffalo

David Copperfield once famously quipped to Johnny Carson, that the difference between a trick and an illusion is "about $40,000." And certainly, in recent years magic has gone from something defined by either birthday party tricksters or arena selling professionals, into a piece of slick entertainment that also includes legitimate street performers, reality show stars and much more. (In fact, one of the best in the world right now might be a guy you never heard of named Apollo Robbins). And it's against this new face of the industry where "Now You See Me" starts (as partially seen in the opening four minutes that dropped online), with a group of random performers -- ranging from the skyscraper theatrics of J. Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) to the mentalism hustle of Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) -- individually and mysteriously brought together by a shadowy figure for what becomes the ultimate illusion.

You don't see movies about magic or featuring magicians too often at the movies, and while this spring's "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" was either very magical or funny, this summer Louis Leterrier's "Now You See Me" is hoping to cast a spell. It's a summer movie without superheros or toys to back it up, but could its sleight of hand turn it into a big hit?
