New Films, New Options, New Rumours....

Thanks for the warning, J Riff. I strongly suspected that this movie would suffer from remakeitis (the insistence of studios to make crap out of classics). I shall not waste my time. Ta.
My Films To Watch 2014 list has a new entry!

Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise as a soldier stuck in a time loop, forced to fight a deadly battle against an alien invasion over and over again. Also starring Emily Blunt. Due out June 2014.

Groundhog Troopers? Looks like it could be fun.
Oooh! Ooooh! Oooooh!!

Interstellar due for release next November (2014), is the new film from Christopher Nolan, co-written with his brother, Jonathan. Not much is known about it, but it is rumoured to be about a team of scientists who travel vast distances, and possibly into alternate dimensions, through newly discovered wormholes. What we do know is that the teaser definitely gives the impression that it's a space film about pioneers, and that the screenplay is based upon the theoretical work of Kip Thorne, an American theoretical physicist with research interests in gravitational physics and astrophysics.

To be honest, though, I'm not too fussed what it's about. It's an original science fiction film from the Nolan brothers. What more do I need?
You'll know their work. They both collaborated on Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, and Christopher Nolan wrote and directed Batman Begins and Inception (and also directed Insomnia, starring Al Pacino and Robin Williams).

A small body of work so far, but it's all of a high quality.
I see Winter's Tale is doing the rounds right now. I loved the book but this film is getting a pretty mixed reception so I'll wait for it on DVD.
Oh boy, this looks like fun!

Automata, a Sci-Fi thriller starring Antonio Banderas (from IMDB):

Jacq Vaucan, an insurance agent of ROC robotics corporation, routinely investigates the case of manipulating a robot. What he discovers will have profound consequences for the future of humanity.

It looks like I, Robot meets Blade Runner, set in the bad part of the city from Artificial Intelligence (just without gigolobot Jude Law).

HD trailer, and some more on the story, at Yahoo! Movies, who also report a 10th October release (for the US, I guess).
