As part of our content revamp I added 17 Blackbeard related clips to our video archive. It contains some of Jessica scenes on this which was her first film.

One more year until the release!
I’m slowly working on the site content, and today I’ve started with the career pages. I’m thinking in building each film by time, and while working on it, adding more content (media, videos, information), which will be great to have the site complete and with constant updates.
I also rebuilded our video archive, it has now a matching theme and its easier to navigate. On the sidebar, you have categories and tabs, just have fun playing with it.
On our career session, the films with information are in bold. We already had information for 3 movies and I will be adding some missing media before starting to update others. And today I added the film page for Tar, which is expected to be released anytime in 2014.
Oscar Isaac signed to replace Javier Barden in the upcoming ‘A Most Violent Year’, which will be directed by ‘All Is Lost’ director J.C. Chandor.
“It’s really neat because Jessica was pushing Oscar because they were classmates at Juilliard,” Chandor added. “And he literally is this character,” the filmmaker said of the actor, who was born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother and Cuban father who immigrated to America and raised him in Miami.
Isaac, who is earning raves for his performance in the Coen Brothers-helmed Llewyn Davis, has seen his stock rise in recent months, fielding a flurry of plum role offers. He recently turned down the role of Ramses in Ridley Scott’s Exodus.
Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb are producing A Most Violent Year, which is based on an original screenplay by Chandor. [THR]
Set in 1981, when violence and corruption in New York City ran rampant, story follows the ambitious owner of an oil company who must protect his business and his family from his competitors as they violently try to run him out of business.

Distributed by Spotlight Pictures, and to be presented at Rome Film Festival, Tar has its first trailer released.
TAR is based on Pulitzer prize-winning poet CK Williams’ collection of the same name. Collectively written and directed by twelve filmmakers, the film blends together adaptations of twelve of the poems to create a poetic road trip through CK William’s life. The film takes us on a journey through several decades of American life from CK’s childhood and adolescence in Detroit in the 1940s and 50s to the early 1980s: CK (James Franco) and his wife Catherine (Mila Kunis) are married with their son Jed (name of actor). CK prepares for a reading of Tar in New York City, and spends his nights struggling to write new poems, haunted by memories of his past. As CK drives to his reading in New York City, he remembers central moments of his life: we come to experience and understand both his relationship to love and loss, and how he found his calling as a poet through the women in his life. The film takes us back and forth between past and present, punctuated by voice-over from CK Williams’ poems, recreating the experience of memory and exploring how the fragments of one’s man life can be turned into poetic expression: his loving relationship to his mother (Jessica Chastain), his first sexual experiences as a teenager (Henry Hopper), his first love (Nina Ljeti) and the struggle to preserve a form of innocence and wonder, the illness and loss of a close friend (Zach Braff), and finally his life together with Catherine.
