Walt Disney Studios and Miramax Films have just sent us some amazing new stills from some of their upcoming holiday releases which we have added to our existing galleries.

First up is The Tempest from famed director and Broadway wizard Julie Taymor. In her big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s mystical thriller The Tempest, Academy Award®–nominated Julie Taymor (“Across the Universe,” “Frida,” “Titus”) brings an original dynamic to the story by changing the gender of the sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress Prospera, portrayed by Oscar® winner Helen Mirren (“The Queen”). Prospera’s journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural. The Tempest opens in limited release on December 10 and wide release one week later on December 17.

Featured below are stills of Russell Brand, Alfred Molina and Helen Mirren.

Also from Miramax Films is the spy thriller remake The Debt also starring Helen Mirren. In The Debt (rated R by the MPAA for some violence and language), Rachel Singer (Helen Mirren) is one of three Israeli Mossad agents who were sent on a secret mission to capture a notorious Nazi war criminal in 1960’s East Berlin. Now, decades later, she must go back undercover and risk everything once again. Our new stills feature the younger version of the agents, Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington and Marton Csokas. The Debt opens nationwide on December 29.

Last, but certainly not least, is a new still of Diane Lane in Walt Disney’s Oscar-worthy Secretariat which also stars John Malkovich. Based on the remarkable true story, Secretariat chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner.  Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge.  Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.
