Bradley Cooper directs and stars alongside Lady Gaga in 'A Star is Born.' I didn't even know Cooper was a director. That's probably because this is his first stab at it. He's got another project in production, but that's another topic for another day. One more interesting thing I didn't know about this movie, Dave Chapelle is in it. What more do you need? Look for 'A Star is Born' in theaters on October 5.
I don't know if I haven't seen enough of Uma Thurman doing accents, but damn, she's good. Also, why not indulge in a scary story that revolves around a bunch of angry chicks at a boarding school for girls who like to break laws? 'Down a Dark Hall' is scheduled for release on August 17.
Raimi Malek is in a another upcoming movie, this time alongside Charlie Hunnam. In 'Papillon' they're convicts who team up to escape life on an island, a penal colony. Neither one of them can face eternity on this island so they work together to find a way off. The movie is based on the autobiographical accounts in "Papillon" and "Banco." Look for 'Pappillon' in theaters September 7.
Okay, a couple things: it's a period drama, it's a monster story, it looks melodramatic as all get out and there's feminism slathered all over this thing. If you need more than that to be sold on this story, you're needier than I am and I pity your soul. Look for 'Mary Shelly' in theaters on May 25.
