Though the prequel-sequel has been shooting for around a month, 20th Century Fox has decided that now is the time to blow the doors off Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
The first official look behind the scenes has hit, showing off both the human and ape leads in the follow-up to 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. That's in addition to an up-to-date official synopsis and even a nugget of casting news.
"Welcome to IAR, can I take your order?"
"Yeah, I'll take two new images of Chloe Grace Moretz in this year's Carrie remake, one bloody and one plain, please. Oh, and a side order of Julianne Moore."
Judy Greer is a phenomenally talented actress, a beautiful woman with surgical comedic instincts.
She'll be putting those instincts to use in her first major motion-capture role as Cornelia, the lead female chimpanzee in next year's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was recently on the set of Adult Swim's Emmy Award-winning show Childrens Hospital and had the rare pleasure of sitting down and speaking with actor Henry Winkler about his involvement in the new Arrested Development series, as well as the legacy of Happy Days. The legendary television actor discussed the new Arrested Development series, his character, what Barry Zuckerkorn has been doing since we last saw him, when Winkler shot his scenes, the possibility of being involved in the proposed film, confirmation that Ron Howard will return as the show's narrator, Howard's "annoying voice," and the genius of series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, as well as the legacy of Happy Days, the impact of playing Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, and how it has affected Winkler's life and the lives of generations of people around the world.
Opening in theaters on December 7th is the new romantic comedy Playing for Keeps, which was directed by Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happiness).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Noah Lomax in the IAR Studios to talk about his work on Playing for Keeps. The talented young actor discussed his new film, similarities he has with his character, rehearsing scenes with the director, working with Gerard Butler and Jessica Biel, not knowing who they were before shooting, and learning to play soccer for the film.

The first teaser trailer for MGM and Screen Gems' new adaptation of Stephen King's first published novel is now online. If you were wondering just how this Carrie will differ from the 1976 version directed by Brian De Palma, then the teaser answers that question with a resounding, "Carrie kills a whole lot more people."
So Brian De Palma's 1976 Carrie introduced the iconic, endlessly spoofed and replicated image of Sissy Spacek covered in pig's blood at prom. A remake/new adaptation of Stephen King's first published novel is scheduled for next year, and the first official stills from the film have been revealed online.
Last month, I had a chance to attend a party in Santa Monica celebrating the Blu-ray and DVD release of Jeff, Who Lives at Home. In attendance were directors Jay and Mark Duplass, as well as actress Judy Greer. I had an opportunity to speak with the extremely busy Mark Duplass, who also moonlights as an actor (Darling Companion, Your Sister’s Sister), and the lovely Ms. Greer about Jeff, Who Lives at Home, and the forthcoming Blu-ray and DVD.
Opening in theaters on March 16th is the latest comedy from directors Jay and Mark Duplass (Cyrus) called Jeff, Who Lives at Home. The film stars an impressive cast of comedic and veteran actors including Jason Segel (The Muppets), Ed Helms (The Lorax), Judy Greer (The Descendants), Rae Dawn Chong (The Color Purple), and Academy Award-winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down and speak with the delightfully funny Judy Greer about her work in Jeff, Who Lives at Home, as well as the upcoming Arrested Development mini-series and film. The hilarious actress discussed the new film, her character, the directors unique filmmaking style, Ed Helms commitment to acting, why Jason Segel is the only actor who could play the film's title role, and what she would like to see her Arrested Development character - Kitty Sanchez - do in the upcoming mini-series and film.
