three lives, one name: Shaitan maker Bejoy Nambiar is back with an explosive theatrical trailer and first-look poster of his latest film, David. Set in three eras, David tells the story of a gangster (Neil Nitin Mukesh) in 1975 London, a budding musician (Vinay Virmani) in 1999 Mumbai and a fisherman (Raavan star Vikram) in 2010 Goa, all of whom are bound together by a common thread — they are all named David. Also starring Tabu, Lara Dutta, Monica Dogra and Isha Sharvani, David’s music has been scored by 12 composers. Will this one turn out to be as trippy as Shaitan? Wait till February 1, 2013.

Damon’s next: The film that could have been Matt Damon’s directorial debut (but he handed it over to Gus Van Sant due to “creative conflicts”) will compete in the Berlin International Film Festival. In Promised Land, Damon essays the role of gas company salesperson Steve Butler who visits a rural town with his partner Sue Thomason (played by Frances McDormand) to buy the drilling rights. Damon’s second outing with director Van Sant, after the 1997 Oscar-winner Good Will Hunting, will premiere at the festival in February alongside the 3D animation film The Croods (characters voiced by Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds) and Austrian director Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise: Hope.
