Coming Distractions: New trailer for Netflix’s The Discovery fleshes out its horrifying world

7 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The first teaser for Netflix’s The Discovery was designed to be unnerving and ominous, with Jason Segel and Rooney Mara walking through what looked like a romantic drama right up until the soundtrack started to warp and the spooky imagery started to creep in. The movie comes from Charlie McDowell and Justin Lader, and it stars Robert Redford as a scientist who has discovered irrefutable proof of an afterlife, prompting a wave of suicides all over the world. This new trailer presents that world with a more operatic tone, suggesting that this isn’t a small horror story about a handful of people but a grand horror story about the whole human race. The A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd said The Discovery was an “ambitious, convoluted genre tightrope act” that kept him “thoroughly engrossed” when he saw it at Sundance, and you’ll be able to see »

The Afterlife Is Real in Trailer for Robert Redford, Jason Segel and Rooney Mara’s ‘The Discovery’

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix dropped its first full trailer for “The Discovery,” the sci-fi film starring Robert Redford, Jason Segel, and Rooney Mara that offers a new take on the meaning of life and death.

Redford plays Dr. Harper, a scientist whose verification of the afterlife, or a “new plane of existence” changes the way people think about death. In fact, it seems to make people want it, sparking more than a million suicides around the world by those attempting to “get there.”

“How can you keep a discovery so vital to our existence a secret?” Redford’s Harper says in the trailer after Mary Steenburgen’s journalist character asks a question about his personal responsibility.

Netflix has revealed a full trailer for Charlie McDowell's new sci-fi film The Discovery, to follow-up the first teaser launched just before Sundance.

The Afterlife Beckons In Morbid New Trailer For Netflix Drama The Discovery

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Heaven, paradise, nirvana, Valhalla – whatever moniker you ascribe to the afterlife, the concept of life after death is as powerful as it is frightening. Now suppose that its existence is proven, right here on Earth in the present day, and you’ll have an inkling of The Discovery, Netflix and Charlie McDowell’s morbid new drama that centers on an unusual love story that blooms between  Rooney Mara and Jason Segel.

In the fallout of Dr. Thomas Harbor’s (Robert Redford) landmark discovery – he prefers to call it a “new plane of existence,” rather than the afterlife – the world is crippled by mass suicide, as tens of thousands of people end their lives with reckless abandon in an attempt to enter this alleged new reality. Despite the temptation, Mara and Segel’s wounded protagonists resist, and instead work to make amends within their own lives before worrying about the next ones. »

Rooney Mara and Jason Segel Encounter the Afterlife in New Trailer for ‘The Discovery’

18 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The One I Love director Charlie McDowell brought his next emotionally grounded sci-fi film, The Discovery, to Sundance Film Festival and unlike many other premieres there, one will be able to see it soon. Ahead of a release in about five weeks on Netflix, they’ve now released a new trailer which unpacks more of the story. Starring Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons, and Riley Keough, the film follows a world where the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified.

I said in my review, “If you knew what was to come after death, would you live your life differently? Or would you want to live at all? These are but a few life-altering questions at the center of The Discovery, Charlie McDowell’s follow-up to The One I Love, another film which used the backdrop of a science-fiction premise as a playground for exploring universal emotional quandaries. »

‘The Discovery’ Is Dangerous In New Trailer For Sci-Fi Starring Rooney Mara & Jason Segel

18 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While “The Discovery” landed at the Sundance Film Festival last month boasting star power — Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Robert Redford — and a nifty premise, reaction was mixed on the sci-fi movie. But we’ll watch anything with that cast, and we can’t help but continue to be intrigued by the film, which now has a new trailer.

Charlie McDowell (“The One I Love“) directs this story about a doctor who discovers proof of the afterlife, and the deadly consequences that follow.

‘The Discovery’ Trailer: The Secrets of Charlie McDowell’s New Mind-Bender Begin to Unfold

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t invite Mary Steenburgen to your home if you’re not ready to answer the hard-hitting questions. In the latest trailer for “The Discovery,” Charlie McDowell’s provocative sci-fi exploration of the the nature of reality and mortality, Doctor Thomas Harber (Robert Redford) learns that lesson the hard way.

Read More: ‘The Discovery’ Review: Rooney Mara And Jason Segel Find Life After Death — Sundance 2017

An earlier trailer framed the film as a twisted love story between Rooney Mara and Jason Segel, but the follow-up tells a far more fractured story. Doctor Harbor’s research led him to prove the existence of the afterlife; as a result, people are committing suicide in the millions. Buoyed by his interview with Steenburgen, who plays the reporter interviewing the Doctor for the first time since he made his discovery, the trailer cuts to far more sinister snippets underscored by a tense classical medley. »

My favourite best picture Oscar winner: The Sting

20 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series of Guardian writers’ picks of the great Academy Award winners, Andrew Pulver explains why the Paul Newman and Robert Redford caper is the most purely enjoyable film in Oscar history

No one, in all honesty, would go to the best picture Oscar list for a defining rundown of the best American cinema. Too many short-shelf life films get through the voting process and rise to the top: Crash? A Beautiful Mind? Really? Middling-to-decent tends to triumph. Actual dyed-in-the-wool classics are rare: The Deer Hunter and The Godfather, and possibly No Country for Old Men and Birdman, are among the only highlights of the past five decades.

YouTuber Plans to Eat Picture of Jason Segel Every Day Until Actor Responds (Video)

17 February 2017 10:20 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A YouTube star plans to eat a photo of Jason Segel every day until the actor agrees to return the favor. Yesterday marked the first day of a challenge posed by YouTube user Dog S—, who uploaded a 4:21 video to the platform in which he chomps at a headshot of the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor. He doesn’t really say anything but occasionally stops to drinks some water. Then, at the end, he says “Hey Jason” while staring into the camera, before the hashtag #Eatmyfacesegel appears.

Broad Green Pictures Is Missing Release Dates and Angering Filmmakers. Here’s Why.

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was baffling when distributor Broad Green Pictures pulled Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” from the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, the same day as its intended premiere, with a press release that said the “post production process has taken longer than expected.”

Nearly a month later, Broad Green has made no further comment on the film’s status, but its homepage still boasts that “Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club documentary will have it’s [sic] official world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival!”

That disconnect (and typo) could be a matter of sloppy site maintenance, but multiple IndieWire interviews with people familiar with Walker’s film and Broad Green suggest more complex issues dog the three-year-old would-be studio. (Walker declined to comment for this article; Broad Green executives didn’t respond to requests for comment.)
