With his head decapitated at the end of Prometheus, Michael Fassbender has been on the lookout for a replacement. He seems to have found one in the Sundance favorite, Frank. Here Fassbender stars as an eccentric band frontman who constantly wears a large papier-mâché head that he refuses to take off. Think Sugar Ray but with music that is intentionally bad.

It must be so hard to get drunk at parties in that thing.

Hysteria stars Hugh Dancy, Rupert Everett, and Jonathan Pryce as three doctors tasked with duty of getting Maggie Gyllenhaal off. They really could have saved some time had they just asked James Spader.

Set in Victorian-era London, these doctors set out to develop a remedy for hysteria — a condition that causes women to go all cuckoo-bananas. In the process, they accidentally invent the vibrator. For the most part it seems like a comedy for old people who read The New York Times, but you never know. It seems original, probably features an orgasming Felicity Jones, and has a solid cast. Though this trailer isn’t particularly funny, we’ll hold judgment. With movies like this, it all depends on the climax.

While Jake is prattling on and on about Source Code and Love and Other Drugs over Thanksgiving dinner, Maggie Gyllenhaal won’t have to just sit there politely, nodding and clenching her firsts. She can instead tell the fam about Voice from the Stone, a supernatural thriller in which she plays a nurse treating a boy haunted by evil spirits. But the laughs don’t stop there.

As she treats the boy and begins seeing his father, she too becomes haunted by whatever is out there. Because the boy is just a dumb little kid, it’s up to Gyllenhaal’s character to exorcise those demons for the both of them.

The film is based on an Italian novel titled Le Voce Della Pietra, which I believe translates to “Scary Little Boy Voices.” (Variety)

Maggie Gyllenhaal Inserts Herself Into Vibrator Film, ‘Hysteria’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-gyllenhaal-inserts-herself-into-vibrator-film-hysteria/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/maggie-gyllenhaal-inserts-herself-into-vibrator-film-hysteria/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 She's ready for her close-up. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy have signed on for Hysteria, a comedy that focuses upon the invention of the vibrator and its effect on society in Victorian England. Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett are attached to co-star (OF COURSE). In the film, Dancy plays a doctor who uses a radical, new electronic device to toss off women who suffer from "hysteria," a malady whose symptoms include irritiability, anger, and unexplained tears. Weird, you can cure all those problems with a simple belt. That's how Dad did it. (Variety)

Jeff Bridges Rides The Dusty Trail to Oscar Bait In ‘Crazy Heart’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeff-bridges-rides-the-dusty-trail-to-oscar-bait-in-crazy-heart/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeff-bridges-rides-the-dusty-trail-to-oscar-bait-in-crazy-heart/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Jeff Bridges may soon be able to wipe away the stigma of "Four Time Academy Award NOMINEE" from his title and add the coveted "Academy Award Winner." The trailer for Crazy Heart gives him a role as strong as Mickey Rourke's in The Wrestler, but replaces bright spandex with a good 'ol fashioned gee-tar. The Dude plays Bad Blake, a broke down country music singer looking to find salvation with the help of a journalist (instead of stripper this time) played by I-look-like-a-sad-turtle Maggie Gyllenhaal. As Blake and the turtle struggle down the road of redemption, they learn profound things about  each other and themselves, and it changes their perception of the future. Basically.Check out the trailer after the jump.
