Malick, Coens, Wright, McDonagh: new films, new photos and synopsis

Four great filmmakers of our time, from the looming, invisible Terrence to the American film regeneration auteurs, Joel and Ethan, to the romantic Joe, to the most promising rising screen storyteller, Martin. What brings them so close right now is the expectation build up their fueling 2012 with, having recently released the first images of their next films. And its all thrilling synopsis with outstanding casts. This is via Collider.

Lawless, written and directed by Terrence Malick. Two intersecting love triangles, in a story of sexual obsession and betrayal, set against the music scene in Austin, Texas. With Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett.

Inside Llewyn Lewis, written and directed by Coen Brothers. A singer and songwriter
wanders in the New York folk music scene in the 1960's. As a note, it is not certain if the film is due to premiere in 2012 or 2013. It will be another genre exercise by the team, a musical this time. With Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman.

Anna Karenina, written by Tom Stoppard (based upon the book by Leo Tolstoy) and directed by Joe Wright. "The story unfolds in its original late-19th-century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna (Knightley) questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends, and community.". With Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Kelly McDonald, Aaron Johnson, Matthew Macfadyen, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander, Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, and Ruth Wilson.

Seven Psychopaths, written and directed by Martin McDonagh. Marty, a screenwriter who struggles to finish his script "Seven Psychopaths". Bill, his best friend, a dog thief who wants to help him no matter what. Hans is Bill's boss, a religious violent guy and an expert in stealing dogs and returning them in exchange for the whoever-finds-it reward. Charlie, a psychopathic gangster who seeks revenge after his beloved shih tzu dog is kidnapped by Bill and Hans. A tale of impulsive violence that will provide the finest inspiration for Marty. With Colin Farrel, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell.
