Exclusive clip from ‘Z For Zachariah’ hints at Sundance film’s explosive love triangle.

One of the movies that has a ton of heat already focused on it even before the Sundance Film Festival begins is “Z For Zachariah.” Chris Pine, a brunette Margot Robbie, and Chiwetel Ejiofor co-star in this story that takes place “in the wake of a disaster that wipes out most of civilization,” according to the official synopsis. “Two men and a young woman find themselves in an emotionally-charged love triangle as the last known survivors.”

Craig Zobel’s last film that played here, “Compliance,” was a cold-blooded and intensely well-made look at a true story that still gives me chills when I think about it. I am a huge fan of his first feature film, “Great World Of Sound,” as well, and I am excited to see anything Zobel makes.

Today, we’ve got an exclusive debut for you of the first clip from the film. In it, we see a tender moment between these three friends, presumably as they’re starting to settle into this strange new world of theirs.

Check it out embedded at the top of this story. What gets me is that look from Ejiofor at the end of the clip, just as it fades to black. Things are not going to go well between those three. I’m also struck by how transformative something as simple as hair color is on Robbie. She’s a lovely young woman, but looking at her here, I don’t see even a hint of the Duchess, her character from “Wolf Of Wall Street.” I have a feeling Robbie is someone we’re going to be watching for many, many years to come.

And fingers crossed this is a great role for Chris Pine. I thought he was amazing in Joe Carnahan’s “Stretch,” but no one saw the film. Pine is too interesting to be locked down only doing big Hollywood action movies. There is a stealth freak hiding in there, and I want to see more and more filmmakers try to push him to new places onscreen.

Film Officially Titled ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, Margot Robbie Likely to Play Thor’s Love Interest.

Recently, Marvel Studios hosted a special event to unveil the release dates of its under-production and upcoming superhero movies. Marvel went ahead and announced the release date of the third installment of the ‘Thor’ series which has been officially titled ‘Thor: Ragnarok’.

Addressing the audience, Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ head, explained that Ragnarok means “the end of all things,” and it is very likely that the film will witness an epic-scale battle set in Asgard.

As far as the plot of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is concerned, there are rumors that Thor as well as his allies will be fighting against the Fire Demons of Muspelheim. Moreover, it is being speculated that Thor will also be battling his greatest enemy, Surtur.

In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, fans will see Chris Hemsworth return to play the character of Thor. More recently, the producers have confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will also reprise the role of fan-favorite villain Loki.

A report by Screenrant says that so far is it not clear how Loki will precisely fit in the story because Surtur is already the main antagonist of the story. However, in the comic books, Loki partnered with the Fire Demons, and freeing Surtur actually brings him to Ragnarok. The website also said that it is very likely that the movie will adhere to the comic book storyline.

Referring to Thor’s love interest, a report by Unleash the Fanboy says that Thor may possibly get a new lady love in the character of Amora the Enchantress. There are rumors that ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ actress Margot Robbie will be portraying the character.

It has been announced that filming for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ will commence in 2016, as soon as Hemsworth finishes his work for the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ prequel titled ‘The Huntsman’.

As it stands, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is scheduled for release on July 28, 2017.

Focus Movie Release Date, Reveals, Rumors, Reviews and Updates.

Focus Movie Release Date, Reveals, Rumors, Reviews and Updates: Will Smith and Margot Robbie to Star in Upcoming Romantic Comedy

It has been a long time since we saw Will Smith in a movie that we actually liked and enjoyed; when I say this I am assuming we all thought After Earth was a horrible movie. Anyway Mr. Smith is coming back to our screens in the movie Focus set to be released on February 27th 2015. The flick which is produced by Zaftig Pictures and costs just 100 million dollars is directed by Glen Ficarra and John Requa. Mr. Ficarra is one of the founders of Zaftig films so he really has a lot of eggs in this basket. The movie does not have a whole lot of names attached to it and as at now we do not know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Mr. Smith I actually the only person of note on the project and if it weren’t for Warner Brothers it would almost qualify as an indie film.

The movie is set to be a romantic comedy drama about a seasoned con man that gets himself romantically involved with a woman whom he introduces to his illustrious trade. The two find themselves falling in love and our protagonist feeling that this may be a liability cuts all ties with this woman, he just walks away. Fast forward to three years later and she shows up again with a child. She is trying to run a con on our protagonist’s mark which catches him unawares and throws him off his game.

Filming for the movie wrapped in December of 2013 and considering the release date we wonder how much post production work is really needed, we would expect a mid to late 2014 release date. Will Smith was not the first option for this movie, the role was offered to Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck all of whom turned it down for various reasons. The role for the female role was also first offered to Emma Stone and Kristen Stewart who also both declined for some reason or other before it was offered to Margot Robbie.
