  • Sony Buys The Intern’s Handbook For Dave Franco: Sony wants to turn Dave Franco into a major star. The studio has just purchased the rights to a new book titled The Intern’s Handbook: A Thriller by Shane Kuhn, hoping to kickstart a franchise starring the younger Franco. The story follows John Lago, whc is a very bad guy, who he’s the best at what he does, which is “infiltrate top-level companies and assassinate crooked executives while disguised as an intern.” Cool.

  • Clip For Foxcatcher: Below is the first clip for the dramatic film Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell as an overweight millionaire named John du Pont, whose “notorious relationship with Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler Dave Shultz (Mark Ruffalo) ended with the grisly demise of the professional athlete.” The film is directed by Moneyball helmer Bennett Miller. This is surprisingly dark material for Carell, but this is the kind of stuff he left The Office for, so more power to him. Foxcatcher is set to hit theaters November 14th.

  • Clip For Whiplash: One of the most buzzed about films to come out of this year’s Sundance was Damien Chazelle‘s Whiplash, which stars Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. The film tells the story of a young musician who struggles to make it as a top jazz drummer. Sony Picture Classics has released the first clip for the film. In it, Simmons tries to teach Teller the difference between rushing and dragging by slapping him around a few times. The movie opens October 10. Here’s the trailer:

  • New Images For Sin City: A Dame To Kill For: Nine years after Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller released the original Sin City unto theaters comes the long-delayed sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Much like the first film, the black-and-white sequel is made up of interconnected vignettes that bounce between past and present time. A Dame To Kill For is primarily based on the second book in the Sin City series created by Miller, but he also wrote a couple of original stories specifically for the film. The film, which opens August 22, brings back Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Powers Boothe, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis. Josh Brolin and Joseph Gordeon-Levitt also star. Here’s a set of new stills, courtesy of EW:
