Last fall, audiences were captivated by the outrageous adventures of Amazing Amy in David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” so much so that it appears many forgot about another Gillian Flynn adaptation that has been in the can for a while now: namely “Dark Places,” starring Charlize Theron. While you might think an A-list leading, big screen take on a best-seller from a hotly buzzed author might warrant a bigger campaign, the movie is getting ready to open overseas in just over a month, and the first international poster has arrived.
Corey Stoll, Tye Sheridan, Chloe Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, Sterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks co-star in the movie that follows Libby Day (Theron), who as a teenager witnesses the murder of her family and testifies against her brother when he is tried for the crime. 25 years later, Libby is brought before the secretive, crime-solving Kill Club which wants to uncover the truth. Gilles Paquet-Brenner (“Sarah’s Key”) directed the flick, and we’ll soon see if his work measures up to Fincher’s obsessive attention to detail.
“Dark Places” has its premiere screening in Paris on March 30th and opens in France on April 8th.

International chase thriller “Autobahn” starring Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones has been set for an Oct. 30, 2015 release date, Relativity Studios and IM Global announced Wednesday.
Evan Creevy directed the film he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier. Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley also star.
The story follows Casey (Hoult), who schemes to pull a drug heist for an eccentric gangster (Kingsley) to pay for his girlfriend’s (Jones) medical emergency while abroad.
After a failed attempt, he embarks across Europe on an action-packed chase in a race against time to save his girlfriend’s life from being taken by an evil druglord (Hopkins).
Relativity Studios acquired U.S. distribution rights for the film in November 2014 from leading independent producer, financier and distributor IM Global, a subsidiary of Reliance ADA.
The Weinstein Company on Saturday set an August 14 release for “Underdogs,” the foosball comedy it hopes will be its biggest animated film ever.
Pop star Ariana Grande, Matthew Morrison of TV’s “Glee,” Katie Holmes and Bella Thorne will lend their voices to TWC’s English-language remake of Argentinian writer-director Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes.”
The “Underdogs” soundtrack will feature three original songs written by British singer/songwriter and “X-Factor UK” judge Gary Barlow, who recorded the vocals for two of them. The third track was recorded by pop duo Kalin and Myles.
“Underdogs” was a hit at the Argentinian box office and won the Grand Prize Feature Award at the 2014 New York International Children’s Film Festival.
Nicholas Hoult, John Leguizamo, Eugenio Derbez (“Instructions Not Included”), Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan and Chazz Palminteri will co-star.
“We’re excited to keep growing and expanding with ‘Underdogs’ being the biggest animated release in our company’s history,” said Harvey Weinstein, TWC’s co-chairman. “It’s a fantastic story that’ll hit and appeal to all four quadrants with its comedy, pop music and a wide range of talented actors. In the coming months we will be announcing more great musicians and incredible actors who will lend their voices.”
Specialty fare is TWC’s primary focus, so animated films are uncharted territory. Its biggest previous score with an animated film was 2013’s “Escape From Planet Earth,” which took in $75 million worldwide.
