James McAvoy talks about Wanted 2 with MTV News and you can watch the interview over at MTV’s Splash Page.



There’s also another video interview with James and Helen over on youtube. I can’t embed it, but it’s a really funny interview.

English language trailer for ‘The Ghost Writer’

The German trailer came out nearly two weeks ago, and now the English version is online.


The Ghost Writer stars Ewan McGregor and will debut at the Berlinale in February and opens in limited release in the US on February 19.

‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’ picked up for US distribution

There’s no word yet on a release date, but at least the film is on its way to being released in the US:

…the hotly-tipped British thriller “The Disappearance of Alice Creed,”…picked up some strong reviews at the Toronto and London festivals last year, and stars the wonderful Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston (“Red Road”) as two criminals who kidnap a rich girl (Gemma Arterton). Anchor Bay have picked it up for US distribution, so we’ll be able to see for ourselves if it’s as taut and twisty as it’s meant to be. [The Playlist]
