Put on Your Fire-Retardant Armor for the New 'Mad Max' Trailer: VIDEO


Moviegoers next summer will revisit the cult classic Mad Max franchise in a new film, Mad Max: Fury Road directed by George Miller. Miller directed Mel Gibson in the original 1979 film.


Miller had originally planned to cast Gibson in a fourth Mad Max film (after The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome), but the project spent years in development and when a new script from British comic creator Brendan McCarthy emerged, work began on Fury Road, eventually roping in Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult who all appear perfectly cast for this franchise. No special guest cameo from Tina Turner though, as far as we know.

LOOK: New Photos Of Zachary Quinto and James Franco In 'Michael'


New photos have been released showing actors Zachary Quinto and James Franco in their upcoming film Michael, produced by Gus van Sant, which follows the life of "ex-gay" activist Michael Glatze. As Attitude Magazine notes, Glatze was the "co-founder of [the short-lived publication] Young Gay America and a strong advocate for gay rights, who later denounced homosexuality after a health scare." Glatze married a woman in 2013. Emma Roberts will play Franco's wife in the film.

We also learned just yesterday that Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears will be scoring the film. Shears made the announcement on Instagram: "Thrilled to announce that I have scored my first feature film with Tim Kvasnofsky."

Michael will also reportedly feature a steamy threesome between Quinto, Franco and Charlie Carver (whom Towleroad readers may remember from his Teen Wolf days). 

Check out a few more sneak peeks of Michael, AFTER THE JUMP...

And in case you missed them, peep a look at Quinto and Franco is late 90s / early 00s period attire HERE.

'Pride' Wins Best Film at British Independent Film Awards


Pride, the true story of lesbian and gay activists who supported workers during the 1984 National Union of Minerworkers (NUM) strike, has been named best film at the British Independent Film Awards, BBC reports:

Accepting the top award of the night, Pride director Matthew Warchus said: "We're getting reports from up and down the country of audiences standing up and applauding. That doesn't really happen in British cinemas.

"It's just extraordinary. It's a real tribute to the source material."

Writer Stephen Beresford added that the film had one "simple, compelling message: unite".

"When I was first told the story I was blown away by it - people ask 'is that really true?'

"It took 20 years to convince anyone that a film about vegan lesbian activists was a sure-fire hit."

Pride stars Andrew Scott and Imelda Staunton also took home awards, winning best supporting actor and best supporting actress respectively.

Robin Campillo’s 'Eastern Boys' Explores Love, Sex, and Immigration - WATCH

Eastern boys

In his latest film Eastern Boys, French-born Moroccan filmmaker Robin Campillo dissects the complicated relationship between an immigrant hustler Marek (Kirill Emelyanov) and his client Daniel (Olivier Rabourdin.) What begins as a transactional encounter spins into story about, non-traditional relations, sex, and immigration.

“As their relationship progresses things become a little blurry, but I wanted to try to make a film to understand this kind of situation, not to cause controversy,” Campillo explained in an interview with Dazed magazine.

“I really try to think about whether it's possible for love to mutate. Of course I narrate that through a story that is a little bit extreme, but I think it's possible. I was trying to make a film about an unbelievable situation. But there is some kind of truth in their relationship, even when it's too much.”

Arnold is Back in 'Terminator: Genisys' Debut Trailer: VIDEO


The debut trailer for Terminator: Genisys has arrived - promising the long-awaited return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator well as more of that nude, time travel loopiness we've come to expect from the series.

Here's the film's synopsis from Entertainment Weekly:

Terminator1The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.
