EW and Empire are publishing various first look photos from upcoming Fall releases this week with new shots today arriving from three serious adult-targeted works with potential awards play and one of next Spring’s biggest titles.
The first is Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi meets 1980s nostalgia mash-up “Ready Player One”. The shot finally gives us a look at Olivia Cooke as Samantha Evelyn Cook (a.k.a. Art3mis). Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, T.J. Miller and Ben Mendelsohn star in the film about a future in which everyone is plugged into a globally networked virtual utopia.
The second is Ridley Scott’s 1970s kidnap drama “All the Money in the World” starring Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams and Kevin Spacey in the story of the taking of the grandson of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty who infamously tried to save his money over saving his kin.
The third is George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” the Coen brothers-penned film which has been pegged and sold as another of the Coens’ dark comedies – this one about a 1950s family who are the victims of a home invasion. Clooney himself says that’s not the case, and aside from a couple of laughs it is: “pretty angry and… very very dark. It starts out feeling like a Disney film and, by the end, it feels like it takes a pretty dramatic, serious turn to, like, an acid trip of some form.”
The last is Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut effort “Molly’s Game” starring Jessica Chastain as an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade. Kevin Costner, Michael Cera and Chris O’Dowd co-star.
