Learn A Lesson In Starry Trailer For Screenwriting Comedy Loitering With Intent

20 November 2014 2:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The creative minds behind Loitering With Intent know the perils of being a writer. Director Adam Rapp embraces the words of scribes Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, bringing to life a comedy that’s already set tongues wagging. Certain movies frame the profession, hobby or the downright obsession of writing in a neat bundle. Many of those movies never depict the reality of what it actually means to populate a life with words. So, a movie about writing a movie ought to really set the record straight once and for all, and today we’ve got a peek at the first trailer.

With a starry cast including Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story revolves around a pair of unemployed actors. Struggling to make ends meet, they wangle a producer into thinking they’ve got a red hot script. With »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Loitering With Intent' With Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty & More

20 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A ticking clock, a couple of down-on-their-luck characters, quirky situations, and one last shot at redemption—these are all familiar ingredients that could be combined to create something far less than memorable. Thankfully director Adam Rapp and screenwriters Michael Godere and Ivan Martin made something fresh with "Loitering With Intent," and the first trailer landed today. Starring Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story follows Raphael and Dominic, a couple out-of-work-actors who have 10 days to deliver a script that could be their last shot for a big break. They head to Dom's sister place in upstate New York, where they think they'll be able work in seclusion, but the arrival Gigi's boyfriend Wayne and his younger brother Devon creates unexpected chaos. This one is a winner, with our review out of the Tribeca Film Festival calling it, "fast, funny, and incredibly. »

Entertaining Trailer for Loitering With Intent with Sam Rockwell

20 November 2014 8:59 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I enjoy a good film that is set around the entertainment industry. A couple of my favorites are Swimming With Sharks and The Player. Now I’ve got a new movie to look forward to seeing. It’s called Loitering with Intent, and the story follows two writers who have a short window of financing to complete a screenplay for their break-out film. This is kind of a meta type movie because the actual screenwriters of the feature, Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, also star as the screenwriters in the movie.

The supporting cast for the film is pretty incredible as well. It includes Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, and Brian Geraghty. The movie looks really entertaining. Here’s the synopsis:

When out-of-work-actors Raphael (Ivan Martin) and Dominic (Michael Godere) hustle a prominent New York producer into believing they’ve written a hot movie script, they have 10 days to »

Film Review: ‘The Rewrite’

13 November 2014 4:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A screenwriter has to be mightily confident in his script to christen it “The Rewrite,” a title that begs jaded critics to suggest it may have needed another pass or two. Marc Lawrence’s affable but under-inflated romantic comedy does little to fend off such punchlines: The story of a faded Hollywood scribe seeking to regain his creative mojo via a small-town teaching job, the film finds its own writer-helmer struggling to match the bubblegum snap of earlier works. What it does have is Hugh Grant — a standby collaborator for Lawrence, and not an asset to be underestimated. Happily paired with the ever-game Marisa Tomei, the British star hardly tests himself with yet another study in high-class bumbling, yet his breezy effortlessness is precisely the kind that’s in overly short supply here.

Given its easy digestibility and an ensemble speckled with familiar faces — including erstwhile “Juno” spouses Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons, »

Prior to 2008, Danny Boyle and Darren Aronofsky were far from unknown, but the directors were riding especially high that year thanks to their respective well-received films—“Slumdog Millionaire” and “The Wrestler.” Early in December 2009, just a month before the Oscar nominations were announced, the filmmakers’ shared distributor at the time, Fox Searchlight, had the them sit down to discuss their craft and movies, and now thanks to a reminder from Reddit, you too can sit in on their intimate conversation. Spread over five parts, the conversation topics covered include comparing their directing styles, Boyle’s use of the then-new Silicon Imaging Si–2K camera, getting the rights to “Who Wants To Be Millionaire?,” how Boyle chooses his projects, and some kind words on the performances by Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei in “The Wrestler.” The discussion originally had seven parts, but the first two installments have either never been »

The Rise And Rise Of Steve Carell

29 October 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

From regional manager in NBC’s The Office to the evil turned good supervillain in the Despicable Me franchise, Steve Carell has carved a career as one of Hollywood’s best loved funny men.

To celebrate the release of his new family film, Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,  which is in cinemas now, we take a look at the rise and rise of Steve Carell.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004 and 2013)

One of Carell’s first leading roles was starring alongside Will Ferrell in the 1970s set cult hit Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Carell played curiously dim witted weatherman Brick Tamland alongside Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy, and the film went on to gross $90.6 million worldwide. Following its success and cult following, a sequel entitled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and starring Carell was released in 2013.

StreamFix: 'Catching Fire,' 'Galaxy Quest,' and 8 More Essential Streams on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle

22 October 2014 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix is your one-stop shop for the web's best streams. Here's the best of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this week.    Netflix "Galaxy Quest" It's strange that we choose to watch other movies when we can just watch "Galaxy Quest" again and again. The awesome movie puts washed-up TV actors from a cult sci-fi hit (played by Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, and Alan Rickman) into a real-life space adventure. Perfect chemistry for such an offbeat cast. I'd say, "Sigourney Weaver has never been more bad-ass!" but she achieves such heights in pretty much every movie, doesn't she? "Alfie" I'm not much for remakes of Michael Caine's best work (Remember the abysmal "Sleuth" revamp?), but Jude Law actually succeeds here by recreating the debonair man at the heart of the 1966 classic. Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, and Jane Krakowski all pay his conquests here. Oh, Alfie. What's it all about? »

The Rewrite review: Hugh Grant's disappointing rom-com comeback

10 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Marc Lawrence; Screenwriter: Marc Lawrence; Starring: Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, Jk Simmons, Bella Heathcote; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 12A

There's a moment in The Rewrite when a nostalgic Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) heads to YouTube to relive his Academy Awards winners' speech for screenwriting. It's an archive clip of Grant himself picking up a prize, he's floppy-haired, charming and reminds you of just how good he was back in the Notting Hill height-of-fame era.

There have, of course, been great roles for Grant since then. 2002's About a Boy represents a career high, while the criminally-underseen Cloud Atlas saw him in chameleon mode, switching effortlessly between six different characters.

The Rewrite is Grant's fourth starring role for Marc Lawrence (putting the filmmaker in Richard Curtis territory in terms of collaborations), but when their last outing was Did You Hear About the Morgans?, you can guess where this one is going. »

Grant, who has had roles in films including Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Bridget Jones' Diary, said: "I have pretty much hated any other film I've ever been in. But I liked this one.

"Nowadays I pretty much turn everything down anyway, because I just feel too old. Certainly for romantic comedy and certainly for showbusiness in general. Occasionally, they wheel me out."

The actor, who was speaking at the world premiere of The Rewrite, added that he does not consider his new film to be strictly a romantic comedy.
