Film Review: ‘War Story’

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

The hotel isn’t haunted but the guest is in “War Story,” an unusually sober, serious-minded American indie about a war photographer (Catherine Keener) who retreats from view following the death of a colleague in the war zone. Anchored by Keener’s understated, psychologically acute performance, director Mark Jackson’s spare, quietly powerful sophomore feature demonstrates an impressive control of mood and tone and the ability to tell a story largely without words. Critical kudos should be plentiful for this IFC day-and-date release (which premiered at Sundance), though the grim subject matter will prove a challenge in the crowded arthouse marketplace.

As he did in his striking 2011 debut pic, “Without” (which unfolded entirely in and around an isolated house on a remote Pacific Northwest island), Jackson here favors claustrophobic spaces and a traumatized protagonist who only gradually reveals herself to us. After a brief scene showing her fleeing from a »

Bill Murray Cast As Baloo In The Jungle Book

8 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You never really know when or where Bill Murray might turn up. Unless it's a Wes Anderson movie, in which case, there's a pretty good chance. But The Jungle Book isn't a Wes Anderson movie, it's a Disney movie directed by Jon Favreau, and Bill Murray is voicing the role of Baloo. Murray joins a top-notch cast of voices that already includes Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba,and Scarlett Johansson, the latter of whom starred alongside Murray in Lost in Translation. To celebrate the news, Jon Favreau posted this teasy announcement, offering a nod to Caddyshack, but no direct mention of Murray...

All-star British cast gets Gothic in Stonehearst Asylum

15 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

A who’s who of British cinema stars in the Gothic psychological thriller Stonehearst Asylum.  Based on a short story byEdgar Allan Poe, the film boasts an impressive Brit cast including Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Kate Beckinsale, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson, and  Jim Sturgess, it’s a miracle that this film managed to fly under the radar for so long.

Original titled Eliza Graves, the thriller is set at a mental institution, which film lovers will know, is always filled with flickering lights, dark hallways, and spooky sounds.  Sturgess stars as a recent medical grad who becomes smitten with his Stonehearst Asylum patient Eliza (Beckinsale), completely unaware that the mental institution has been taken over by its patients.

Directed by Brad Anderson (The Call, The Machinist), Stonehearst Asylum looks to borrow more than a few elements from Shutter Island, including the casting of Ben Kingsley.  The trailer shows the British »

Kate Beckinsale is Trapped in Stonehearst Asylum

17 hours ago | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Since “Session 9″ director Brad Anderson’s “Stonehearst Asylum” was originally called “Eliza Graves,” also the name of Kate Beckinsale’s character in the movie, I sort of assumed she was the star, and that the movie would be centered entirely around her. Turns out, not so much. The movie has since gotten a new title, “Stonehearst Asylum,” which seems to be more appropriate since it’s actually all about Jim Sturgess’ character, with Beckinsale in a co-starring role. Of course, don’t tell the guys who made the movie posters that. Anyways, check out the first trailer for “Stonehearst Asylum.” Yes, I’m pretty sure they gave away all of the film’s plot twists in the trailer. Who needs to be surprised anymore? A recent medical school grad who takes a position at a mental institution soon finds himself taken with one of his colleagues — though he has »

The trailer for Stonehearst Asylum features Kate Beckinsale and plot twists

18 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Nothing quite beats a good psychological horror story and if there is one author whose name is synonymous with the genre it is Edgar Allan Poe. We haven't seen a good adaptation of a Poe work in a long time, but the trailer for Stonehearst Asylum teases a scary good time. Director Brad Anderson is known for some atmospheric and chilling films like The MacHinist and Session 9 and this could be another winner.

Stonehearst Asylum Trailer - Psychological Thriller with an All-Star Cast

18 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here’s the first trailer for the Edgar Allan Poe-inspired psychological thriller Stonehearst Asylum, which was previously titled Eliza Graves. As FirstShowing points out, this looks discouragingly similar to Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island. Both are period dramas set at an insane asylum where all isn’t as it appears, and both star Ben Kingsley in seemingly similar roles. In Stonehearst Asylum, Jim Sturgess stars as a Harvard Medical School graduate who takes a job at a mental institution, unaware the it has been taken over by its patients.

So with all the similarities to Scorsese’s semi-recent foray into horror, and Stonehearst Asylum playing what may or may not be an open hand in the poster and trailer (though I'd suspect some twists, hopefully), what does this film have going for it? It has an all-star cast and a director back in his element. Along with Sturgess and Kingsley, »

Movie Review – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014.

Directed by James Gunn.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee PaceMichael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro and Peter Serafinowicz with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Synopsis:

In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Marvel’s Phase Two has without a doubt been successful; however it is quite easy for people to overlook the risks that have been taken throughout and up to their latest offering with Guardians of the Galaxy. From Ben Kingsley’s turn as the Mandarin/Trevor Slattery in Iron Man 3 to their destruction of S.H.I.E.L.D in Captain America: The Winter Solider and the far reaching effects that has »

Stonehearst Asylum Trailer And Poster Welcome You To The Nuthouse

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

It’s probably a very bad sign that I’ve heard nothing about Stonehearst Asylum despite the film starring the likes of Jim Sturgess, Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, Brendan Gleeson and Michael Caine. A cast like that usually gets a movie on my radar – but up until the trailer and poster for this upcoming thriller landed yesterday, I hadn’t heard a peep (though it is worth noting that the title was once Eliza Graves, which I had at least heard was in development with Beckinsale starring). Here’s hoping that radio silence isn’t because Millenium Entertainment is trying to bury the flick - even if the story isn’t exactly up to scratch, Stonehearst Asylum should be at least a fun chance to see Kingsley and Caine ham it up.

The trailer establishes a mysterious, almost ghostly aesthetic (à la Shutter Island) and seems to hint at an exceptionally twisty period thriller. »
