Mama

Mama: Generating awards heat thanks to her stinging performance in the controversial drama Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica Chastain shows off another side of her personality in the thriller Mama, which opens on January 18. She and her husband try to help their two young nieces recover from traumatic events, but, judging by a newly released image, the terror is just beginning. [Collider]

Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For: Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the toast of Hollywood right now, so hot he had his pick of two lead roles in major motion pictures. Perhaps surprisingly, he has chosen to star in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, based on the graphic novel by Frank Miller, and to be directed by Miller and Robert Rodriguez. He joins Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen and Rosario Dawson. Gordon-Levitt will not, however, be appearing in Marvel’s superhero team-up Guardians of the Galaxy, for which he was under consideration as the star. [Deadline]

Pontius Pilate: Brad Pitt could play one of the best-known villains in history. Reportedly, he is “circling” the titular role in Pontius Pilate, based on the biblical character known for handing Jesus Christ over to be put to death. The script portrays Pontius Pilate as a “ferocious soldier” who gets on a “political fast track” and ends up making some catastrophically bad decisions. [Deadline]

Pacific Rim Trailer: The new trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim fills in some of the blank spaces -- in other words, it shows a more of the giant robots-vs.-monsters action that we’ve been craving. Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day star in the movie, which will explode into theaters on July 12. [The Film Stage]
