Movie News: 'Godzilla' Concept Art; See Sean Penn as 'The Gunman;' First, Spellbinding 'Fifth Estate' Trailer

Jul 17, 2013


Godzilla: A brand new version of Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards, will be stomping into theaters on May 16, 2014, but so far, very little in the way of official imagery has been made available. With Comic-Con looming this week, tantalizing tidbits are beginning to emerge. In one piece of concept art, that appears to be the monster's horned back breaking through the waves, which gives some idea of the beast's size at full height. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston star. [Jo Blo]

The Gunman: Sean Penn looks every inch an action star in the first photo released for The Gunman. Directed by Pierre Morel (Taken, From Paris with Love), who seems to specialize in showcasing 50-something men as action stars (Penn, Liam Neeson, John Travolta), the movie tells the story of a hit man who discovers that retirement is not so easy for those in his profession. It's due in theaters in 2014. [Collider]

The Gunman

Inferno: Actor Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard are teaming up once again to bring a Dan Brown thriller to the big screen. Following on the heels of The Da Vinci Code (2006) and Angels & Demons (2009), Inferno is based on this year's best-selling novel by Brown; Hanks will reprise the role of globetrotting professor Robert Langdon. (By the way, Inferno is actually the fourth book in Brown's series; no word on what will happen to 2009's The Lost Symbol.) The movie has been set for release on December 18, 2015. [Vulture]

The Fifth Estate Trailer: Based on two books about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, The Fifth Estate, directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls), stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the controversial activist. The first trailer is spellbinding. Daniel Bruhl, Anthony Mackie, Stanley Tucci and Laura Lineney also star; the movie is heading to theaters on October 18. [YouTube via The Playlist]
