JOSEPH GORDON LEVITT
IS DOCTOR STRANGE?In superhero news todays, if you're a fan of those, the hot gossip is that Marvel wants Joseph Gordon Levitt for the lead role in DR STRANGE which should arrive to theatres (with ANT-MAN) in 2016 or 2017 after THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA sequels finish their cinematic life. There are some rumours that DR STRANGE could first make a cameo in THOR 2 THE DARK WORLD. Doctor Strange is a former neurosurgeon, a sorcerer, and serves as the Sorcerer Supreme, the primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Joseph Gordon Levitt often appears in these rumours surrounding superhero movies, and was one of the candidates for Star-lord role in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY which, thankfully, later on went to Chris Pratt!
12 YEARS A SLAVE TRAILER
MICHAEL FASSBENDER, BRAD PITT, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH
Our trailer for today comes from historical drama which opens up in theatres this October: 12 YEARS A SLAVE is based on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life. As you can see in the trailer Michael Fassbender gives another marvellous performance as the villain in the film and it will be interesting to see if the Academy will look him over for who knows which time again. Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano and Scoot McNairy are also in the cast!
