Romantic Drama Mercy Adds Ellen Page And Kate Mara

22 August 2016 3:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting that Ellen Page and Morgan star Kate Mara have closed deals to headline Mercy, a new romantic drama from Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom Ezer.

In what will be their first on-screen collaboration – Page and Mara have worked together on comedy sketches including Funny or Die’s hilarious Tiny Detectives – we understand the pair will find themselves butting heads in Ezer’s feature, with Page attached to the role of Lucy, the daughter of a shunned man on death row. Mara, meanwhile, will portray the title character who hails from the opposite end of the political cause. Sparks inevitably fly as Lucy begins to call her troubled father-daughter relationship into question.

Also starring Amy Seimetz, Pablo Schreiber and Elias Koteas, production on Mercy is expected to get underway in Cincinnati next month, lending Tali Shalom Ezer and Co. ample time to align the romantic picture for next year’s festival circuit. »

Restored Re-Release Trailer for Terrence Malick's 'The Thin Red Line'

11 August 2016 3:43 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In this world, a man, himself, is nothing." War is hell. In late 1998, Terrence Malick release his third film, The Thin Red Line, set during World War II telling the story of a group of American soldiers fighting in the Guadalcanal Campaign in the Pacific Theater of World War II. The film was overshadowed by Saving Private Ryan, also released earlier in 1998, but earned a following in the years since as many critics have analyzed Malick's work even further. The war film has an incredible ensemble cast, including: Sean Penn, Jim Caviezel, Nick Nolte, Elias Koteas, Ben Chaplin, plus John Cusack, Adrien Brody, John C. Reilly, Woody Harrelson, Jared Leto, Miranda Otto, John Travolta and George Clooney. So far this re-release is only scheduled for France, but this is might be worth revisiting on your own time anyway. Here's the new re-release trailer for Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, »

Stephen Amell Will Play Casey Jones in More 'Ninja Turtles' Sequels

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In our nerdy Ninja Turtle-lovin' opinion, Casey Jones is a character so important to the Tmnt mythology, he should play a huge role in all of the movies. And he does just that in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (June 3), as Stephen Amell (Arrow) portrays a live-action version of the hockey mask-wearing tough guy for the first time since 1993 (we love you Elias Koteas!), not counting this short fan film (Chris Evans voiced Jones in the 2007 animated movie). The notorious street vigilante gets a deeper origin story here, making him a corrections officer with aspirations to become a detective one day. "We don’t get in this movie the full-fledged, five-alarm fire Casey Jones that a lot of fans of the Turtles and the cartoon and the comics are...

Ninja Turtles 2 Loses Fred Armisen as Krang, Look Who's Taking Over

19 May 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the WonderCon panel for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows back in March, it was revealed that Portlandia star/creator Fred Armisen would provide the voice of the iconic villain Krang. The casting took many by surprise, but it turns out that we won't be hearing Fred Armisen voicing Krang after all, when the sequel opens on June 3. A new report reveals that Brad Garrett has stepped in to replace Fred Armisen as the fan-favorite character.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Fred Armisen's casting was never officially confirmed, and he ended up dropping out over scheduling conflicts. It isn't known if the voice actor dropped out recently, or if Brad Garrett has already begun voice work for the sequel, which hits theaters in just a few short weeks. The casting switch may explain why we haven't heard Krang speak yet, even though he has been seen in recent trailers. »

Watch ‘Rosy-Fingered Dawn,’ a 90-Minute Documentary on Terrence Malick

22 March 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As the debate rages on if Terrence Malick‘s recent work matches up to his earlier output (we fall firmly on the side that it’ll be greater appreciated as time goes on), today we have a documentary that explores his process — although, as one might expect, there’s no sight of him across the 90 minutes. Rosy-Fingered Dawn: A Film on Terrence Malick, fittingly named after a description of the goddess of dawn, Aurora, premiered back in 2002 at the Venice Film Festival, but has been hard to find since then.

Hailing from Italy and directed by Luciano BarcaroliCarlo HintermannGerardo Panichi, and Daniele Villa, it focuses on the making of the three films that had been made then: Badlands, Days of Heaven, and The Thin Red Line. Featuring interviews with Jack Fisk, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Sam Shepart, Sissy SpacekBilly Weber, Haskell Wexler, Elias KoteasJim Caviezel, Ennio Morricone, »
