Stephen King’S A Good Marriage Coming To Theaters & VOD October 3

15 September 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a look at the trailer for Stephen King’S A Good Marriage.

When her husband (Anthony Lapaglia) of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.

The film, directed by Peter Askin and starring Joan Allen, Anthony Lapaglia Kristen Connolly, and Stephen Lang, is written by Stephen King and based off his short story “A Good Marriage” from the collection “Full Dark, No Stars”.

A bit of trivia on the movie - this is the first feature film screenplay Stephen King has adapted from one of his works in 25 years (last one: “Pet Sematary” in 1989), and only the 4th one overall (the other two feature films: “Cat’s Eye” in »

Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs to star in Broadway revival of 'The Heidi Chronicles'

11 September 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s going to be one mad spring for Elisabeth Moss.

The Mad Men actress will return to Broadway to star in the title role of the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Heidi Chronicles by Wendy Wasserstein. The production is expected to begin in February 2015 with an official opening in early March, around the same time the final season of Mad Men concludes. Moss first appeared on Broadway opposite Jeremy Piven (though briefly) and Raul Esparza in David Mamet’s Speed the Plow in 2008. She will be joined by Orange is the New Black’s Jason Biggs, Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham and Tracee Chimo. »

Tiff 2014: Kevin Costner goes to bat for Black and White

8 September 2014 10:47 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Most of Kevin Costner's most famous films wouldn't seem to be easy sells. How would it today sound to pitch a studio on a Civil War soldier befriending Sioux Indians on the South Dakota plains? Or on an Iowa farmer who hears voices?

 

But while Costner's industry clout was once impervious, he's had to fight harder for his latest, the drama Black and White, which premiered over the weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival. In the film, written and directed by Mike Binder, Costner plays a Los Angeles attorney devastated by the deaths of his daughter and wife. A custody battle over his granddaughter ensues between Costner's character and the child's African-American grandmother (Octavia Spencer).

"I was pretty convinced someone would want to make it, but that just wasn't the case," Costner said in a recent interview. "I didn't fight, I just kind of surrendered. So I used »

Samba Review [Tiff 2014]

7 September 2014 8:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the plight of illegal immigrants remains a hot-button issue in American and international politics, many current films have looked at this struggle in unique, singular ways. Titles like Sin Nombre, A Better Life and Dirty Pretty Things have dramatized a collection of sad, squalid tales that need to be told in today’s inflamed political arena. However, few of them boast much in the way of laugh-out-loud comedy.

Samba, the new film from The Intouchables directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, uses the appeal of its lead star, Omar Sy, to generate crowd-pleasing moments in what is likely the cheeriest movie ever made about the immigrant’s plight. Despite its light touch, the levity works.

Sy plays Samba Cissé, a man from Senegal who has worked a lot of low-paying jobs after arriving in France a decade earlier. He sends much of his measly paycheck to his family back home. »

Kevin Costner on 'Black and White,' race, and great movie speeches

2 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When we first meet Kevin Costner’s character, Elliott, in Black and White, he’s alone at the hospital after a car accident has killed his wife (Jennifer Ehle). Shattered, he finally says, “I feel so sh-tty,” before going home and crawling inside a bottle of booze. The themes of loss and alcohol will evoke memories of the last time Costner worked with writer/director Mike Binder, 2005’s The Upside of Anger. In that film, Costner got to play a lighter soul, with Joan Allen’s abandoned wife shouldering the darker demons. In Black and White, however, Costner is put through the emotional wringer, »

Lukewarm Off Presses: "Chef" Again, Lord Attenborough, Joan Allen, and Movie-to-tv Series

26 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Four interesting tidbits coming atcha that we neglected to discuss for multiple reasons. If you hadn't yet heard them, they'll feel like brand new news to you.

In what is clearly understood to be an awards-traction move, Jon Favreau's sleeper hit Chef will be coming back to theaters this Friday in wide release. I'm not sure it has the critical oomph to win any nominations and it didn't have the box office size to make that a non-issue (a la gargantuan hits like My Big Fat Greek Wedding) but could it sleeper hit its way into, say, The Screenplay race? I'm realizing I neglected to consider it at all there which is an obvious mistake. I had a really good time watching it with friends though; it's an easy sit and safe for diverse groups of viewers. My favorite visual was ScarJo eating a bowl of pasta but my »

Tyler Ross Talks The Killing Season 4, Moving to Netflix, Where His Character Ends Up, Henry Gamble’S Birthday Party, and More

22 August 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The fourth and final season of the drama series The Killing, available exclusively on Netflix, wraps up previously unresolved story threads and takes viewers on a journey through a new crime.  Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) struggle to manage the fall-out from their shocking actions at the end of last season, while also trying to solve the murder of a picture perfect family, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre and left with no clear memory of what happened.  The season also stars Joan Allen, as Colonel Margaret Rayne, the headmaster of the all-boys military academy that Kyle attends, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden, as two of the other students there, and Gregg Henry.

Trailers: Outcast, Meadows, Automata, Marriage

20 August 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A bunch of new trailers today for a variety of non-tentpole genre fare - some of it aims to be big, some aims to be in awards contention, some will probably skip theatrical.

Nicolas Cage continues his run of period action films with Arclight Films' "Outcast," an English-language 12th century China-set thriller without a subtitle (or Chinese accent) in sight. Cage and a mulleted Hayden Christensen play ex-Crusades warriors who team up to help the children of a deposed Chinese Emperor to battle their murderous uncle who has seized the throne. Cage sports an attempt at a British accent, has the nickname 'The White Ghost,' and breaks out into several Nic Cage-isms.

Katie Holmes plays the sweetest and most proper elementary school teacher who moonlights as a lethal vigilante in the dark satire "Miss Meadows". Things become complicated for the gun-toting dainty lady when she gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff. »

Intense Trailer for Stephen King's A Good Marriage

20 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Another story from the master of horror, Stephen King, has been adapted into a feature film. A Good Marriage is based on a novella that was part of King's Full Dark, No Stars short story collection. The script for the film was also written by King.

The story follows a happily-married, middle-aged couple who seem to have spent a perfect life together. Then one day the wife (Joan Allen) finds evidence indicating that her husband (Anthony Lapaglia) is a serial killer whose crimes have gone unpunished.

I've read the story and it's really good. There's a lot of heavy suspense in it, and it looks like that suspense has carried over into the movie. 

The film co-stars Kristen Connolly and Stephen Lang and is set to be released on October 3rd.  »

20 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There have been umpteen adaptations of Stephen King’s works, but very few arrived with a screenplay penned by the Top Dog of Terror himself. One that does is A Good Marriage, the tale of a terrible family secret.

Earlier this week, King revealed to EW why he chose to adapt his novella for the big screen. Now, there’s a trailer for the film, which debuts in cinemas and on VOD on Oct. 3.

A Good Marriage is directed by Peter Askin and stars Joan Allen, Anthony Lapaglia, Stephen Lang, and Kristen Connolly.

Stephen King Devises A Good Marriage In New Trailer

20 August 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the Master of Horror, Stephen King has seen countless adaptations of his works. And with long anticipated versions of The Dark Tower, It and The Stand in the works, it’s easy to forget that some of King’s lesser known stories are also getting the big screen treatment.

This fall will see the release of A Good Marriage, based on a short story from the author’s 2010 novella collection Full Dark, No Stars – and honestly, if King’s name wasn’t attached, the familiar nature of the story would have kept this one off our radar altogether. Now, the first trailer for the thriller has hit, showing off the strong cast while unfortunately spoiling the plot’s main twist.

Joan Allen and Anthony Lapaglia star as a happily married couple whose lives are turned inside out when the wife begins to suspect that her long-time husband may have »

‘A Good Marriage’ Trailer Teases the First of Four Stephen King Adaptations Over the Next Year or So

20 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s only been ten months since a Stephen King film was playing in theaters, but we’re already just two months away from the next. Once upon a time that year-long wait between adaptations would have seemed crazy– back in the ’80s and early ’90s there were frequently two or three of them in the multiplexes simultaneously – but he hasn’t been nearly as ubiquitous onscreen in the 21st century. There have only been nine feature films based on his work since 2000, and pretty much only one of them is worth a damn. His latest stab at the box-office is A Good Marriage, a film written by King from his own short story. The always fantastic Joan Allen plays a woman who discovers her loving husband (Anthony Lapaglia) may just be a serial killer. There’s no shortage of movies about couples, secrets and the possibility that one of them might be a murderer, but »

First Trailer and Poster for Stephen King Thriller A Good Marriage

20 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There are plenty of familiar Stephen King adaptations in the works (including a prequel and sequel to The Shining), but A Good Marriage somehow flew under all of our radars. It’s based on one of the author’s many short stories, and King actually adapted the story himself (as he did for Pet Semetary and Cell) for this movie.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, King had this to say about adapting his story:

 

“I’ve seen enough movies adapted from my work to know that the things that work the best are the things that aren’t too long and aren’t too short. Some of the stories, when they get expanded, they go in the wrong direction, and with the novels, if they’re really expansive, a lot of times it’s like sitting around a suitcase and trying to get everything in. A Good Marriage is about 100 pages long, »
