Paul (2011) - News Poster



Big Thief Want to Transcend All This

“I love performing,” Adrianne Lenker says, “but unfortunately, the bigger you get, the more mitote.”

Mitote (pronounced “mih-toe-tay”) is a word that Lenker and her bandmates in Big Thief have been using a lot lately. They found it in a 1997 book of spiritual philosophy called The Four Agreements, by Mexican author Don Miguel Ruiz, where it represents “the stuff that surrounds our human experience,” Lenker explains. “Everything that has to do with projection or constructs or ideas or concepts about the other.”

“A lot of the time,” drummer James Krivchenia adds,

Trailer, poster and images for biblical drama Paul, Apostle of Christ

Affirm Films has released a trailer, poster and images for the biblical drama Paul, Apostle of Christ, which tells the story of the man who persecuted the early church and then became its greatest evangelist, and stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ), James Faulkner (Downton Abbey), Oliver Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (The Secret Garden).

In Paul, Apostle of Christ, Luke (Caviezel) risks his life to visit Paul (Faulkner), who is held captive in a Roman prison under Nero’s rule. Together, they struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and spread their message to the world.

“Paul, Apostle of Christ brings to life on screen the powerful story of a man who changed the course of history through his committed faith, yet at great cost to himself,

Passion of the Christ 2 Star Claims It Will Be the Biggest Movie Ever

Passion of the Christ 2 Star Claims It Will Be the Biggest Movie Ever
Passion of the Christ 2, which is tentatively titled The Resurrection, is really happening and James Caviezel, the man who brought Jesus Christ to life in the original, is officially on board to reprise his role. We first heard of a sequel to The Passion of the Christ in late 2016 when Mel Gibson was promoting Hacksaw Ridge, which managed to revive the director's career. Things have been quiet since, but it sounds like Gibson has started to sort things out and the sequel is moving forward.

Jim Caviezel recently was interviewed in honor of his upcoming movie Paul, Apostle of the Christ, in which, he plays Luke. He was asked about The Resurrection and confirmed his involvement. While he couldn't say much in terms of story details, he claims that it will be "the biggest film in history." Here's what Caviezel had to say about it.

Exclusive: Olly Moss's Source Code Poster for SXSW 2011
Perhaps you're familiar with the poster art of Olly Moss, who creates custom posters for movie screenings at The Alamo Drafthouse cinemas in Austin, Texas (in my opinion, the best movie-viewing experience in the States). We're excited to give you the first look at Moss's poster for Source Code, which makes its world premiere at SXSW on March 11. Nowadays, as trailers and posters tend to reveal vital plot details, revel in these shades of turquoise, blush, and graphite and cross your fingers for Jake Gyllenhaal as he heads back in time. We also have the a new poster Moss created for Moon as part of SXSW's Director Series honoring Duncan Jones (the second filmmaker to receive the honor, after Guillermo del Toro), and artist Tom Whalen's poster for Paul, which makes its U.S. debut at SXSW on March 13.

'Paul' red band trailer: Seth Rogen's alien is a baller

'Paul' red band trailer: Seth Rogen's alien is a baller
What do we learn about alien Paul (Seth Rogen) in the March 18 film’s new red band trailer? Well, he’s “kinda rude,” according to Kristen Wiig’s character, he (naturally) enjoys Reese’s Pieces, and earthlings are oddly fixated on his “spaceman balls.” Seriously, Paul’s groin gets not one, not two, but three mentions in the trailer — and, since I’m a 13-year-old boy, I’ll admit I giggled. Paul could be a film, like Rogen’s Pineapple Express, that benefits from a promising red band trailer — the sheer silliness of Paul’s plot is bolstered by some R-rated gags.

Around-the-World Roundup:'Black Swan' Soars Again...

Around-the-World Roundup:'Black Swan' Soars Again...
Black Swan extended its impressive foreign run with another first place finish this weekend, trumping chart regulars The King's Speech and Tangled. Paramount movies No Strings Attached and True Grit had their highest-grossing weekends so far, though their respective genres held them back a bit. Paul got off to a strong start in the United Kingdom thanks at least in part to the presence of popular British actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Darren Aronofsky's ballet thriller netted another $17.6 million from 39 markets for an foreign total of $97.9 million. It opened in first place in Spain with $2.9 million and had a solid $1.5 million launch in Italy. Black Swan also dipped just 18 percent to $4.1 million in star Vincent Cassel's native France, and held the top spot in Paris and the surrounding suburbs according to distributor 20th Century Fox. On Monday, the movie passed $200 million worldwide (domestic plus foreign). The King's Speech

'Paul' trailer: Aliens -- they're just like us!
Aliens: cute or evil? Filmmakers have long bounced between the extraterrestrial tropes, giving us E.T.-style aliens who tug at heartstrings and Ridley Scott-esque aliens who eat heartstrings. But the trailer for upcoming sci-fi comedy Paul, directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland), about a pair of comic book aficionados on a successful expedition to Area 51, promises to fill the void between. Meet Paul, the regular guy alien.

Yes, Paul has an American accent, likes bagels, can show you the universe by touching your forehead. And also – he’s hilarious! The trailer doesn’t provide an overwhelming argument

Exclusive: Pegg and Frost On Paul
As those of you who've had the chance to read the hot-off-the-press latest issue of Empire will agree, the new shots of Paul look, well, out of this world. And though we can't bring you the exclusive snaps themselves (well, not yet, anyway) we can reveal a few choice snippets from our on-set interview with Messrs. Pegg and Frost."If people don't forget that Paul is a CG character within ten minutes of meeting him," says Frost, "we've done something wrong. He should not be anything special. He should be one of the gang."Pegg continues: "There are bits of dialogue where he just talks and does a lot of theorising about religion and sexuality and he swears a lot," says Pegg. "We've not seen a CG character do that before."And, as the interview continues, what Paul proportedly does when talking about the possibility that Simon and Nick's characters

The movie, in which Pegg and Frost play a couple of British geeks on a road trip across the States who pick up an unwanted alien hitch-hiker, looks like a bundle of nerd-savvy fun, with plenty of Pegg-Frost chemistry, a raft of cracking lines and an all-star cast, from Jason Bateman to Sigourney Weaver to Jane Lynch to Kristen Wiig. And, in the film's eponymous CG alien (voiced by Seth Rogen), there's a feisty, foul-mouthed presence which should play well off the established Pegg-Frost axis. And the effects, by British-based FX house, Double Negative, look excellent.To see the trailer in HD, go to MSN Movies.
