The Counselor

The Counselor: Ridley Scott's new film The Counselor, based on the first original screenplay by acclaimed novelist Cormac McCarthy, looks to be a wild and wooly ride, according to its first trailer. And that's an impression that's deepened by sexy new images that have been released, one of which features Cameron Diaz and Penelope Cruz in towel-clad collusion and looking pretty happy about it. Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Javier Bardem also star; the movie's due out on October 25. []


Mean Business on North Ganson Street: Leonardo DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx, who played adversaries in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, will put aside their differences (eventually) and fight crime together in Mean Business on North Ganson Street. The project is in the early stages of development and is based on an upcoming novel by S. Craig Zahler, who will write the screenplay. DiCaprio will play a disgraced detective who is sent to a Missouri town, where he's partnered with Foxx "just in time to see police officers becoming targeted for murder." Rest assured, DiCaprio and Foxx will ensure that justice is served. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Pixar Sequels: Its animated prequel Monsters University topped the box office with a massive haul last weekend, but Pixar chief Ed Catmull says: "For artistic reasons… it’s really important that we do an original film a year." Going forward, the company plans to limit sequels to every other year. Their next two films, 2014's The Good Dinosaur and 2015's Inside Out, are both originals, with the sequel Finding Dory set for later in 2015. [BuzzFeed]

Breathe In Trailer: When it debuted at Sundance earlier this year, our man Erik Davis described Breathe In as "a deep, dramatic soul searcher about a family man (Guy Pearce) who begins an inappropriate relationship with the foreign-exchange student (Felicity Jones) living in his house." The movie will open in U.K. theaters on July 19; while we await word on a U.S. release, the first trailer makes clear what the fuss is about. [Hey U Guys UK]
