Youtube – Join stars Jessica Chastain, Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger (In The Fade), and Fan Bingbing (X-Men: Days of Future Past) for Entertainment Weekly’s Women Who Kick Ass panel, moderated by EW’s Devan Coggan, as they discuss this groundbreaking, breakneck new film and the dangers and thrills of launching a new global vision for the 21st century action film.
In the spirit of Bond and Bourne, Universal Pictures’ The 355′ (in theatres Jan. 15) is an action-packed espionage thriller, conceived and produced by Oscar® nominee Jessica Chastain, directed by genre-defying filmmaker Simon Kinberg, and starring a jaw-dropping cast of some of the most powerful female actors in film history.
‘The 355’ also stars Oscar® winner Penélope Cruz, Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramírez.
Universal Pictures’ “The 355,” a woman-led spy thriller starring Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, Fan Bingbing and Penelope Cruz, has released a first trailer for the film, which is set for a theatrical release on Jan. 15, 2021.
The movie follows a team of spies from various international agencies who must band together to prevent brewing conflicts and halt an incident that could send shockwaves through the world. The women put aside rivalries and distrust to form a faction, code-named “355” after the first woman spy in the American Revolution. Sebastian Stan and Edgar Ramírez also co-star.
The film’s Twitter account teased the trailer’s release with posters of each of the leads, with Chastain playing Mace, Nyong’o as Khadijah, Cruz as Graciela, Kruger as Marie and Fan as Lin Mi Sheng. The women hail from the United States, United Kingdom, Colombia, Germany and China, respectively. Following the release of the posters, some fans expressed dismay at Cruz’s represented nation, as the actor is of Spanish not Colombian descent.
Simon Kinberg will direct the film from a script he co-wrote with Theresa Rebeck. Chastain and Kelly Carmichael will serve as producers for the actor’s Freckle Films, along with Kinberg for his Genre Films. Richard Hewitt (“Bohemian Rhapsody,” “The Theory of Everything”) is set to executive produce.
Chastain first proposed the idea for a woman-led spy film while working with Kinberg on “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.” The cast came together two years ago with CAA Film Finance brokering the deal and Film Nation handling international sales.
The high-profile film previously hit a snag in 2018 when Fan was accused of tax evasion and disappeared for months. After admitting to the charges and paying more than $100 million in fines, back taxes, interest and late payment fees, she emerged from hiding and returned to the project, which will mark her first role since the scandal.

Entertainment Weekly – When it comes to romance, we’re all just improvising our way through — and for the cast of ‘Endings, Beginnings’, that became true of their movie-making process as well.
The new romantic drama from director Drake Doremus stars Shailene Woodley as Daphne, a thirtysomething woman navigating love and heartbreak over the course of one year. That love and heartbreak comes courtesy of two men, Jack (Jamie Dornan) and Frank (Sebastian Stan). But the twist is that the entire movie was improvised.
Sitting down with EW for a recent Zoom roundtable, the cast discussed the challenges of ad-libbing a feature film, and how they found their chemistry. “I felt very anxious to want to please you, way more than I’ve felt on any movie,” Stan confessed to Doremus. “I really want to make sure he gets what he wants. But I think that’s the nature of the unknown of that.”
Woodley echoed Stan’s thoughts, though she said things got easier as they went along. “At first it felt a little bit daunting. We started out the movie in Big Sur, and that was the hardest part because Sebastian and I didn’t really know each other at that point,” she recalled. “That was the trickiest part for me, of just knowing how close should these two people be with one another, and because you’re improvising, you don’t really know what has happened in their story beforehand. It’s kind of a guessing game. That was the hardest part, that first week in Big Sur, those first couple days, and then after that, it just felt fun. It felt like every single day we got to come to set and play together. It didn’t feel like improv at one point, it just felt like life.”
In contrast, Dornan said he found the approach freeing, particularly during a scene where Woodley’s character must tell him about her pregnancy. “I felt like weirdly I could’ve done that scene for the rest of my career and been satisfied,” he said. “Shai was the most raw and honest person I’ve seen, with or without a camera in their face. Every time she walked in the kitchen, I didn’t have a f—ing clue what she was going to say.”
For Doremus’ part, he was thrilled with the results he got from his cast. “I feel like all the performances in the movie are so natural,” he said. “You don’t see the strings really at all.”
