Tilda Swinton is set star in Snow Piercer.
The We Need To Talk About Kevin actress is in talks to join Chris Evans in the indie drama which is set in a world covered in ice and snow and follows a group of passengers on a train who must help each other in order to survive. Jamie Bell is also in negotiations for a role in the film, which is set to be the first American movie that The Host filmmaker Bong Joon-ho - who has also written the script - will direct. Park Chan-wook will co-produce through Moho Films with production expected to start in March, though no distributor is yet in place.
Tilda recently admitted she considers every project she does to be her last and is looking forward to retiring as soon as possible. "Every time I'm in a film, I'm determined it's the last film I'm in and then I'll fall into a conversation with someone and we'll cook up a new scheme. Being part of a group has kept me in this because if I wasn't making films I'd be by myself a lot. And basically, it's gone on for 20 years but I'm hoping to pull it to a close shortly. I'm not going, 'Where are the films?' because I don't want there to be films. It's not like I'm looking for opportunities to do things. I would like an opportunity to have a good sleep and get on with some writing."

This is the first look we’ve had of Chris Evans in Captain America: The First Avenger, and it’s not half-bad … though, a little different from what many comic book fans were expecting.
The new costume looks more like a flight suit than the superhero’s iconic spandex get-up, but that’s been done on purpose.
“You can’t really take him serious in his flag pajamas,” director Joe Johnston explained to Entertainment Weekly in a past interview.

Only one movie earned over $10 million over this weekend…and only movie scored over $125 million as well.
Iron Man 2 - with help from Mickey Rourke’s powerful weapons - whipped up $128.1 million over the past three days, giving Paramount its biggest open in history. The sequel, which was produced for approximately $170 million, easily improved upon Iron Man‘s $98.6 million premiere in 2008 and nabbed the fifth-largest debut of all time. (The Dark Knight still tops that leader board with its $158.4 million outing.)
Focus Features’ Babies also made news of its own despite coming nowhere near Iron Man 2‘s numbers. The documentary, which was only released in 534 theaters, delivered $2.2 million and a ninth-place finish over the Mother’s Day weekend.

Even though it’s a recurring dream, A Nightmare on Elm Street can still still scare up a few dollars.
Warner Bros.’ reboot of the horror classic clawed its way up to the top of the charts this weekend with a bloody good $32.9 million. Director Samuel Bayer’s first feature film more than tripled its nearest competitor while just falling shy of Freddy vs. Jason‘s $36 million open in 2003. (This installment did, though, top all other Elm street debuts.)
Meanwhile, it appears Brendan Fraser’s latest entry may have actually scared away audiences. Furry Vengeance, also starring Brooke Shields, only grossed $6.6 million over the last three days. Sadly, that amount was still higher than what Fraser generated in his last film…with Harrison Ford. (Extraordinary Measures unfolded to $6 million back in January.)
