    The trailer for The Big Short has been released! The film will have it’s world premiere on the 12th November as the closing night selection of November’s AFI Fest in Los Angeles and Paramount will release the film in theaters in limited release on the 11th December and then wide on the 23rd December.

    From The Hollywood Reporter: “In a surprise move, Paramount Pictures has slotted Adam McKay’s The Big Short for a late 2015 release, giving it a shot in this year’s Oscar race. The film, which stars Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Melissa Leo, Marisa Tomei, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Finn Wittrock, wasn’t expected to be released until 2016.

    Paramount will release the film in limited release on Dec. 11 and then wide on Dec. 23.

    The film also will make its world premiere as AFI’s closing night film on Nov. 12.

    Based on Michael Lewis’ best seller, The Big Short chronicles the men who made millions from a global economic meltdown and those who tried to stop it. When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to acknowledge, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment led them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.

    Charles Randolph and McKay wrote the screenplay.

    When it opens wide during the Christmas frame, The Big Short will square off against five other wide releases including two adult-skewing dramas: the Will Smith starrer Concussion and the latest David O. Russell-Jennifer Lawrence partnership, Joy. Also opening that weekend are the Will Ferrell-Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy’s Home, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip and the Point Break remake. Star Wars: The Force Awakens also will be in its second weekend in theaters. Last week, Oliver Stone’s Snowden moved out of the Christmas frame to 2016, opening up the slot for The Big Short.”

    From “Samsung raised more than $2 million for children’s health and education programs during its annual Hope for Children benefit, which featured such celebrity guests as guests Ben Stiller, Tony Bennett, Demi Lovato, Josh Lucas and Rob Thomas.

    Last night’s New York City event honored Brad Pitt’s Make It Right foundation with the Champion of Hope Award for the organization’s efforts to build hundreds of affordable solar-powered homes in the U.S. Comedian Ben Stiller presented the award to homeowner Leslie Archie, who talked about the organization’s impact on her community in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

    For the first time, Samsung invited select Galaxy Samsung+ members to attend an exclusive party and live music showcase featuring Nick Cannon and Icona Pop, followed by a concert performance by Demi Lovato. Samsung+ members are owners of select Samsung Galaxy mobile devices, which entitle them to exclusive promotions and enhanced levels of post-sale service.

    During its 14-year history, Samsung’s Hope for Children initiatives have raised more than $46 million for more than 1,000 schools, hospitals and foundations in the U.S. All of the benefit’s proceeds and other funds raised by Samsung throughout the year under the Hope for Children initiative go directly to charities, Samsung said.”

    The cinematographer behind some of the most beautiful movies of all time gives his 3 favourites

    In an interview with Roger Deakins (cinematographer for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) he talks about the film: “A film that is quickly becoming a modern-day classic thanks to Deakins’ poetic shots giving a look we’ve never seen before from a western, Brad Pitt plays the ageing outlaw Jesse James in the final years of his life leading up to him being killed by a member of his gang, Robert Ford (Casey Affleck).

    “I love that movie so much because it really captured the lyricism of the book,” Deakins said, referring to the Ron Hansen novel the movie is based on. “It has similarities to ‘Kundun’ in not being literal. I think films these days have become too literal and too dialogue, plot-driven. ‘Jesse James’ has shots in it that have nothing to do with the plot but you can get away with it and that’s what I love about film. It’s not always about narrative. There’s just things you couldn’t express any other way but through film.””

    Ridley Scott defends ‘The Counselor’ and preps to direct ‘The Cartel’

    In an interview with Ridley Scott he talks about The Counselor: ““Cormac McCarthy sent me the script and I was blown away by the material,” he said. “I loved the complexity of it, all the details that showed how this particular situation evolved. The dialogue was fantastic – the best dialogue I’ve ever had. The film was so nihilistic. But so what? Occasionally, nihilism is an interesting subject. Apocalype Now, Aguirre: The Wrath of God and The Godfather are all nihilistic.

    “But because The Counselor was so focused on the characters and the price [Fassbender’s character] would pay, it became quite a lot to stomach, I think. It upset a lot of people. But [the movie] is filled with great performances. The cast was fantastic. How great was Rubén Blades as the head of the cartel, right? The reason [author Don Winslow] chose me to direct the movie adaptation of his book The Cartel is because of The Counselor. So I’m very happy with it.””
