MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS, MARGOT ROBBIE TO LEAD WW2 THRILLER 'RUIN'! 'AT ETERNITY'S GATE' TRAILER WITH WILLEM DAFOE AS VAN GOGH

   'RUIN' WW2 THRILLER
 MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS AND MARGOT ROBBIE TO STAR
Matthias Schoenaerts takes the male lead
After Macbeth and Assassins Creed, director Justin Kurzel is moving to another historical period: this time he will helm World War 2 thriller RUIN and he has already signed Matthias Schoenaerts and Margot Robbie for the lead roles.

  THE STORY OF RUINS 
Set in the ruins of post WWII Germany, the story follows a Holocaust survivor (Margot Robbie takes the role originally meant for Gal Gadot) who is forced to make an unlikely alliance with an ex-SS captain (Matthias Schoenaerts)
Margot Robbie replaces Gal Gadot in the lead female role
 in her quest to exact revenge. Together, they hunt down the surviving members of the captain’s former Nazi death squad.

   'AT ETERNITY'S GATE' TRAILER
WILLEM DAFOE IS VAN GOGH
The movie has premiered at Italian Mostra
Something from Venice Film Festival today, the first trailer and poster for Willem Dafoe's AT ETERNITY'S GATE which first hits Mostra and then cinemas in USA in November with him playing famous painter Vincent van Gogh at the time he was in Arles, directed by Julian Schnabel. The cast also includes Mads Mikkelsen, Rupert Friend and Oscar Isaac. It is not an ordinary biopic, but a film that takes a journey into the mind of the artist who, despite scepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. It is a collection of scenes based on van Gogh’s letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are invented.

  1. Holocaust survivor seeking revenge - that's not an unusual topic.
    Margot Robbie looks very glamorous in the poster. They'll probably have to "fix" her looks for the role of a death camp survivor.

    1. She's not an overly good actress, but they seem to be pushing her onto us big time lately :)

  2. Huh. I'm reminded of a real life story that's similar to Ruins, except instead of seeking revenge, the woman sought out the officer who made her life a living you-know-what in order to look him in the eye, shake his hand, and tell him that she forgave him. I can't even imagine the amount of courage that would take.

    1. What a crazy woman, I'd never forgive something like that. Evil people do not understand forgiveness, they use it against you.

  3. Mariah's favorite artist is Van Gogh, so I bet she'd like At Eternities Gate. I'll have to recommend it to her.
