ALL THE KING’S MEN
Are they looking for an Oscar with this one? Columbia Pictures is remaking the 1949 Oscar-winning film All the King’s Men with such names as Sean Penn, Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins, Patricia Clarkson, James Gandolfini, Kate Winslet and Mark Ruffalo headlining… Yeah, I would say Oscar nods may be in the future. This is the story of absolute power and how it corrupts as All the Kingâ€™s Men charts the spectacular rise and fall of a charismatic Southern politician, “Boss” Willie Stark (Penn). Law co-stars as Jack Burden, the once idealistic, now embittered ex-reporter who unwittingly fuels Starkâ€™s corrupt political ambitions. Click the pic above to get your first looks at the film.
THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE
Step into the courtroom of the damned as The Exorcism of Emily Rose goes literal on the word “exorcism.” In an extremely rare decision, the Catholic Church officially recognized the demonic possession of a 19 year-old college freshman. Told in terrifying flashbacks, “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” chronicles the haunting trial of the priest accused of negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed to be possessed. Inspired by true events, the film stars Laura Linney as the lawyer who takes on the task of defending the priest (Tom Wilkinson) who performed the controversial exorcism.

Set in a Northern California town where, about 100 years ago, a ship sank under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog.
