Movie News: Vin Diesel in 'Riddick' Pic; Disney Wants Struzan; First Trailer for Thriller 'The East'

Jan 22, 2013


Riddick: The newest installment of the Riddick series is on its way to theaters on September 6, and star Vin Diesel shared an image that may be indicative of the movie as a whole: dark, moody and rainy. Riddick has been abandoned on an alien world that’s not as lifeless as it initially appears; Riddick must battle native predators and deadly mercenaries. [Coming Soon]

Star Wars: Poster artist Drew Struzan, whose distinctive hand-drawn imagery came to symbolize the iconic Star Wars universe, has received overtures from Disney about creating posters for the new Star Wars films. Struzan is retired, but commented: “Never say never. All things are possible.” The artist’s possible involvement is yet another signal that Disney intends to honor the original films while expanding the stories in new directions. At least, we certainly hope so! [Collider]

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope

Oblivion TV Spot: Tom Cruise’s most recent picture, Jack Reacher, just reached theaters last month, but his next starring role will be coming up shortly, and the TV campaign has already begun. In a new spot for Oblivion, directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy), Cruise plays a drone repairman stationed on a future Earth that’s been decimated by war. The movie opens in IMAX theaters on April 12. [Screen Rant]

The East Trailer: Debuting last weekend at the Sundance Film Festival, The East has generated positive buzz -- listen to our own Erik Davis talk about it -- and an exciting new trailer for the dark thriller appears to justify it. Brit Marling stars as a woman hired to infiltrate a highly secretive anarchist group that attacks big corporations they feel are poisoning the planet; Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgård also star. The movie is expected to be released in theaters later this year. [First Showing]
