Independence Day 2: new story and character rumours

20 January 2015 10:35 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2 is set for a summer 2016 release - and we've got some clues as to what's going to happen...

This post may, inevitably, have what turn out to be some spoilers for Independence Day 2 in it.

Director Roland Emmerich starts shooting the long, long mooted sequel to Independence Day this year, with Independence Day 2 mooted for a summer 2016 release.

Thus far, most of the recent chatter about the project has been to do with the casting of it, specifically that Will Smith won't be returning to the lead role. But over at Film Divider, a few other details about the film have come to light.

It reports that the focus will once again be on "different small groups in their separate, awful situations", and that amongst the characters returning for the new movie will be those played by Judd Hirsch, Vivica A Fox and - of course - Jeff Goldblum. »

19 January 2015 2:49 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Goldcrest nabs rights to Stonewall starring Jeremy Irvine ahead of Efm.

UK sales outfit Goldcrest Films has nabbed international rights to Roland Emmerich’s gay rights drama Stonewall, starring Jeremy Irvine, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King.

Warner Bros previously acquired rights in Germany while a Us deal is understood to be in the works.

Enemy review: Jake Gyllenhaal leads sullen thriller

2 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Denis Villeneuve; Screenwriters: Javier Gullón; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini; Running time: 90 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve teamed up to good effect in the tense thriller Prisoners, but before that they made the arty character study Enemy. Based on José Saramago's novel The Double, it sees Gyllenhaal play a college professor whose life gets flipped when he spots his doppelgänger as a background extra in an old movie.

Disinterested in his work and even more so in his long-suffering girlfriend (Mélanie Laurent), Gyllenhaal's Adam pursues his lookalike and discovers he's an actor called Daniel Saint Claire (now known as Anthony). This outgoing, charismatic alter ego lies in sharp contrast to the meek, internal Adam. The two lives eventually intertwine amid tarantulas, matching scars and swapped identities.

It all feels like a dark, surreal twist on a Twilight Zone segment - a sort »

Best of 2014: Nicholas Bell’s Top 20 (Picks 20-11)

1 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As seems to be the usual case, many of my top 2014 theatrical releases were actually 2013 titles I caught on the festival circuit (nearly half of them, actually), a trend that will probably continue throughout the tradition of year end best lists. Still, they’re gems that surfaced through hundreds of less than satisfactory or better than average titles. Though only about a century old, the notion of what defines cinema continues to grow and expand, albeit not on such as scale as many would hope. Established auteurs like David Fincher, Bong Joon-Ho, and even the continually infamous Roman Polanski may all have premiered works reflecting their particular preferred conventions (add rising voice Adam Wingard to their ranks), yet, in intelligent, playful, and arresting ways. Meanwhile, others continue to recycle similar themes, a harder feat when taking into consideration their own body of work, yet the Dardennes continue to surprise.
