Film Review: ‘Brave New Jersey’

5 August 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Long before Trump coined the term “fake news,” there was Orson Welles’ legendary 1938 radio dramatization of H.G. Wells’ “The War of the Worlds,” which convinced thousands (if not millions) of listeners they were hearing actual news bulletins about a Martian invasion. Several books and films (most notably, “The Night That Panicked America,” Joseph Sargent’s terrific 1975 TV movie, and “War of the Worlds,” Cathleen O’Connell’s shrewdly constructed 2013 PBS documentary) have emphasized the infectious terror that the broadcast inadvertently sparked among gullible folks who tuned in late and missed the introduction that clearly identified it as a presentation of Welles’ “Mercury Theatre on the Air.” But in the world according to “Brave New Jersey,” Jody Lambert’s uneven but ultimately winning comedy about small-town channel surfers who missed the intro and assumed the worst on the evening of Oct. 30, 1938, a little bit of terror might not be such a bad thing.

Exclusive: 'Pitch Perfect' Star Anna Camp Prepares for an Alien Invasion in 'Brave New Jersey' Clip

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Long before Tom Cruise fended off extraterrestrial tripod fighting machines in 2005's War of the Worlds, there was Orson Welles' original radio drama, which was broadcast in 1938 and caused the world to falsely believe there was an impending alien invasion.

Brave New Jersey is about that very night in the small town of Lullaby, and, in this exclusive clip, Pitch Perfect 3 star Anna Camp plays Peg Prickett, a schoolteacher who is ready to stay and fight during an attack from Mars, which does not go over well with her tough-talking fiancé.

The comedy is being billed as "the original Fake News story" about an alien invasion where the aliens never show up. It comes from director Jody Lambert (Chris Pine's People Like Us) and co-stars Veep's Tony Hale and Parenthood's Sam Jaeger.

Production Wraps on ‘Hustle Down’ Starring Tom Sizemore, Bai Ling (Exclusive)

11 July 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Production has just wrapped in Baja, Mexico, on action-comedy “Hustle Down,” starring Tom Sizemore, Bai Ling and Paul Sidhu, Variety has learned exclusively.

Hustle Down” is produced by Ultramedia in collaboration with Badhouse Studios. The film also features Kevin Gage, Raymond J. Barry, Vanessa Angel, and Noel Gugliemi.

R. Ellis Frazier directed from Benjamin Budd’s script in which Sizemore portrays a two-bit hustler and the driver for a Baja drug cartel, finds himself relying on a skilled-but-reluctant bounty hunter, portrayed by Sidhu, to stay out of the grasps of a merciless assassin and vicious thugs led by a rival gang leader. The duo crosses paths with a sultry dancer — played by Ling, who has many secrets and a greater stake in all of this than they first realize.

Beaumont and Frazier produced with Justin Nesbitt, Jessica Hoang, and Geoffrey Ross serving as co-producers. Ultramedia is handling worldwide sales and plans to screen the film for buyers »

Orson Welles Fools a Community in Trailer for ‘Brave New Jersey’

19 June 2017 5:55 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The first trailer has landed for Brave New Jersey, the cheekily-titled comedy that finds Arrested Development and Veep star Tony Hale as Clark Hill, one of many who experienced the now-legendary day where Orson Welles’ broadcast War of the Worlds over radio waves in 1938 and started a hysteria of massive proportions. Helmed by first time director Jody Lambert (who penned People Like Us), Brave New Jersey seems to be about the lies we believe, and the fun you might end up having along the way.

We said in our review, “Part of the pleasure is the film’s superb production design by Chloe Arbiture and art direction by Jonathan Bell, who have crafted an authentic and clean pre-World War II look that is a simple yet gorgeous. Depicting the last night of these characters’ lives, or so they think, Brave New Jersey is an elegant work of Americana with a »

The Martians Are Coming In First Trailer For Brave New Jersey

18 June 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It was the original Fake News story.

In a small New Jersey town on the night of Orson Welles’s legendary 1938 “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, the hoax that terrified millions into believing Martians were invading America, citizens face what they think is their last night on Earth.

Here’s a look at the upcoming film Brave New Jersey where the aliens never show up.

The over-worked town’s mayor Clark (Tony Hale, “Veep”) will take a chance on love. The neglected housewife, Lorraine (Heather Burns, “Manchester By The Sea”) will break free from her big-cheese husband (Sam Jaeger, “Parenthood”). The demure schoolteacher Peg (Anna Camp, “Pitch Perfect”) will become a warrior. The aimless reverend (Dan Bakkedahl, “Life in Pieces”) will rediscover his faith. The scared Sheriff (Mel Rodriguez, “The Last Man on Earth”) will find his courage. And the reclusive war veteran (Raymond J. Barry, “Training Day”) will »

Trailer for 'Brave New Jersey' About the 'War of the Worlds' Broadcast

16 June 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"So, what are we supposed to do now?" Gravitas Ventures has released the trailer for an indie comedy titled Brave New Jersey, from filmmaker Jody Lambert. The film tells the true story of a small town in New Jersey that freaked out during Orson Welles' legendary 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, believing it was real. They decided to make this a comedy, which may work better in the end since playing this serious would be a whole other thing. Brave New Jersey features an ensemble cast including Tony Hale, Heather Burns, Anna Camp, Sam Jaeger, Raymond J. Barry, Dan Bakkedahl, Mel Rodriguez, Grace Kaufman, Matt Oberg, and Erika Alexander. This looks totally goofy but still heartfelt and fun. Enjoy. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Jody Lambert's Brave New Jersey, direct from YouTube: "An alien invasion comedy where the aliens never show up." Brave New Jersey is »

Several Villains Make Their Return In Promo For Next Week’s Episode Of Gotham

9 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite experiencing a bit of a ratings slump in recent weeks, Gotham has absolutely been on fire since returning for the second half of its third season. Whether it be Edward Nygma fully embracing his destiny as the Riddler or Jim Gordon infiltrating the Court of Owls (oh yeah, it definitely happened last night), this series consistently finds news ways of guaranteeing I’m on the edge of my seat each and every week.

From what I’ve been able to glean from the trailer for the next episode, “Heroes Rise: Light The Wick,” the producers have no intention of letting any of us catch our breath. If indeed all this footage is culled from that particular episode and not from other upcoming installments, then we can expect to see Nathaniel Barnes return as a costumed Executioner in addition to Hugo Strange, the latter of whom hasn’t been seen »
