New Spotlight Poster And Trailer Sell The Newsroom

24 August 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Opening November 6th, Spotlight is loaded with stars, and isn’t a film looking to make friends. The new poster and trailer push the newsroom style, that fits oddly well into the period film and television worlds of what offices at a newspaper look like. Ultimately, the trailer breaks the mold as Michael Keaton becomes fairly threatening, and throws around the weight of the journalism machine to try to get what he wants… which is pretty awesome.

Whatever may come of the story the film works, and how objective and/or incendiary it wants to lay out the events, it has several of the best actors around involved, and it should easily be one of the best films of the year on that alone.

Take a look below, and don’t miss this one.

Movie Review – The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

13 August 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Stanford Prison Experiment, 2015.

Directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez.

Starring Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Michael Angarano, Tye Sheridan, Thomas Mann, and Olivia Thirlby.

Synopsis:

Twenty-four male students out of seventy-five were selected to take on randomly assigned roles of prisoners and guards in a mock prison situated in the basement of the Stanford psychology building.

The only thing separating prisoner from guard was a heads or tails flip of a coin; probably the most alluring detail in regards to how The Stanford Prison Experiment played out. It’s a harrowing study in what temporary power coupled with no repercussions could do to the psyche of average citizens, but most importantly everyday people with good intentions in the real world that seemingly could never harm another fellow human being. By the end of the movie, the most startling aspect is that none of the subjects were diagnosed with long-term psychological effects, »

The Stanford Prison Experiment – The Review

30 July 2015 7:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I first learned about the story of the Stanford Prison Experiment in high school. It was a journalism/newspaper class of all classes – where I had a monthly movie review column, which served as my first foray into film criticism. The idea of a psychology professor taking students and throwing them into a simulated prison system didn’t make much sense to me then. It seemed cruel and unusual, and my naïve, middle-class upbringing didn’t understand the benefit of forcing students to be cruel to other students. Never the less, that experiment conducted by Philip Zimbardo (played here in the film by Billy Crudup) in 1971 has always fascinated me due to its unusual nature.

Now that I’m older, I understand its meaning and its relevance. The Stanford Prison Experiment, the film, deftly recreates these intense moments that followed over the case of several days, showing the excruciating stress »

Movies That Changed My Life: ‘Stanford Prison Experiment’ Director Kyle Patrick Alvarez

30 July 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more intense films to emerge from the Sundance Film Festival, Kyle Patrick Alvarez's gripping "The Stanford Prison Experiment" (read our review) is a dramatization of a notorious 1971 psychology experiment that went very, very wrong. It's a potent piece of work, featuring a terrific ensemble cast (Michael Angarano, Ezra MillerLogan Miller, Keir Gilchrist, Tye Sheridan, Ki Hong Lee, Thomas Mann, Moises Arias, Johnny Simmons, Olivia Thirlby and Billy Crudup), and which takes the filmmaker into different territory following his first two pictures, "Easier With Practice" and "C.O.G." Like any filmmaker who can easily switch gears, Alvarez's cinematic tastes are wide ranging. In the latest entry in our series Movies That Changed My Life, Alvarez discloses how films as diverse as "Vertigo," "Showgirls" and "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" left an impression.

Trailer for Mark Ruffalo's Spotlight, About Pedophile Priests

29 July 2015 10:46 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Today we have the official trailer for the upcoming "Spotlight" film, starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, and John Slattery. Check it out below. The movie is based on a story by the Boston Globe that investigates the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts. Boston Globe's team of reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-up by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world that still reverberate today. "Spotlight" is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) and is set to hit theaters on November 6th. Trailer: »

The Highly Anticipated Spotlight Gets A Trailer

29 July 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Each year, a lot of filmmakers make a lot of movies. Some of them are noteworthy, some become celebrated award-winners, while a rare one or two enter into the annals of history – taking place alongside great works by artists such as Alan J. Pakula. Part of the fun is predicting which film – if any – will fall into the latter category, and this year, all eyes are on Spotlight.

It’s not an outlandish idea to compare the upcoming drama to Pakula’s legendary All The President’s Men, since the subject matter shares the theme of presenting a fictionalized account of some of the most important and remarkable journalism of the 20th century. Where Pakula’s Oscar winner focused on The Washington Post’s work on the Watergate scandal, Spotlight depicts the work of The Boston Globe in uncovering the Massachusetts Catholic sex abuse scandal of 2001.
