First Image From Sci-Fi Romance Equals

28 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Speaking of Guy Pearce as we recently were, here's news of another new film in which he features. His is a supporting role in Equals, the sci-fi adventure romance starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult. There's no sign of him in this first image however, which features only the two star cross'd principals, silhouetted against a chilly blue background.The official Equals synposis gives us a future when emotions are a thing of the past and a new breed of humans (the Equals of the title) live in Spock-like harmony. When a disease starts activating emotions in some subjects, they find themselves disappeared by the ruling regime. And when Silas (Hoult) becomes infected and realizes Nia (Stewart) has emotions too, they join forces to go on the run.If that's all sounding vaguely familiar it's because, as revealed earlier this year, Equals is an updated Ya version of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. »

First Look at Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in 'Equals'

27 September 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Drake Doremus made a bit of a splash with Like Crazy in 2011. His 2013 film, Breathe In, however, went more-or-less unnoticed. His next film won't likely be so incognito as it stars X-Men: Days of Future Past star Nicholas Holt and Kristen Stewart. The film is Equals and the first picture from the futuristic love story has arrived courtesy of Variety. In the film, Hoult and Stewart play characters in a future where emotions have been wiped out, but viral outbreak threatens to bring them back. Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver co-star in the film, which is being produced by Scott Free Films and sounds like a film that will obviously premiere at Sundance in January. »

First Look: Kristen Stewart & Nicholas Hoult In Drake Doremus’ Sci-Fi Film ‘Equals’

27 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s always fascinating to see a filmmaker progress and grow. Drake Doremus’ early indie films like “Spooner” and “Douchebag” were lumped in with the lo-fi mumblecore movement, but he quickly expanded beyond that realm with the touching long-distance romance “Like Crazy,” a film that introduced many to Felicity Jones and even featured an early role by Jennifer Lawrence. While maintaining his free-form style—a lot of improvisation built around loosely visualized scenes—his approach is a method, not a madness, and each film grows with confidence. His last picture, “Breathe In,” illustrated how heavyweights like Guy Pearce and Amy Ryan effortlessly fit into this exploratory form. He even discovered another new stand-out in Mackenzie Davis. For his next trick, Doremus is attempting something very different, a traditionally scripted sci-fi film, and one with a terrific cast. Starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, plus Guy Pearce, Jacki Weaver Kate Lyn Sheil and Toby. »

First Look at Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in 'Equals'

26 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott's Scott Free Films has released the first photo from Equals, featuring stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

Directed by Drake Doremus (Like Crazy, Breathe In), Equals is set in the future, where all emotions have been eliminated, although a viral disease can cause them to return. Take a look at the image below, then read on to see what both Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult had to say about the story.

During a press event last month, Kristen Stewart said that she believes the plot, written by Nathan Parker (Moon), somewhat mirrors her own life.

"I'm definitely not afraid of 'feels.' My life revolves around it actually. Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I've always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it's not necessary. »

First Equals Image Reveals Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult in Drake Doremus’ Sci-Fi Romance

26 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first Equals image from director Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) upcoming sci-fi film has landed online.  The film stars Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult and takes place in a world without greed, poverty, violence, or emotion.  A new disease called Switched-On-Syndrome threatens to activate these dormant emotions, instilling love, depression, sensitivity, and fear into those affected, who are then swiftly sent away and never seen again.  Stewart and Hoult’s characters are caught in the middle of the dilemma, and as can be gleaned from this first image, the two strike up a forbidden relationship.  I’ve been incredibly curious about this film for some time now, and I was really impressed with Doremus' Like Crazy follow-up Breathe In.  Moreover, I’m interested to see how Stewart adapts to Doremus’ heavily improvised style of directing. Take a look at the first Equals image after the jump.  The film also stars »

Kristen Stewart And Nicholas Hoult Are Equals In First Image From Sci-Fi Love Story

26 September 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kristen Stewart’s career choices are making one fact abundantly clear: she wants to be taken seriously. It’s no wonder that after the melodramatic flimflam of The Twilight Saga that the young thesp’s keen to prove her acting prowess. Her critically-acclaimed turn in Clouds Of Sils Maria is soon to be followed by the Guantanamo Bay drama, Camp X-Ray. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can’t deny she’s underrated. Which is why her next turn in Equals could further solidify her as an awards contender.

The futuristic flick from Like Crazy director Drake Doremus reads like a reinvigorated version of Thx-1138 crossed with The Island. Set in a world where emotions have been wiped out, a new strain of human is engineered. Called Equals, this new breed are entirely uncapable of feeling. When Silas (Nicholas Hoult) falls ill to “switched-on syndrome” he begins to »

Scott free Films has released the first image of the new Drake Doremus film “Equals,” starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult.

Guy Pearce and Jacki Weaver also star.

The love story is set in the future where emotions have been eradicated, but a disease can cause them to return.

“I’m definitely not afraid of ‘feels.’ My life revolves around it actually,” Stewart said of the film’s theme at a press event in August. “Finding the balance between the head and the heart is important but I’ve always been very driven by the gut. Every thought or articulated emotion starts in shapes and colors and putting your finger on that is cool, but it’s not necessary.”

When asked whether he’d like to live in an emotionless world, Hoult said, “That obviously would be the easy way out, but no, I like to feel everything, take the highs and the lows. »

Five actors who could play Deadpool instead of Ryan Reynolds

24 September 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach with five actors who could play Deadpool instead of Ryan Reynolds….

The long awaited Deadpool movie has been greenlit and now has a release date of February 12th, 2016. It will likely go into production in the next few months but as yet there is still no confirmation that actor Ryan Reynolds, who played the character of Deadpool/Wade Wilson, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, will reprise his role.

The actor was involved with shooting test footage which was released in July which was praised by fans. Many people liked the footage and liked what Reynolds had done with the character in under two minutes.  It is highly likely that Reynolds will be involved in the film but some people still question his casting.

I’ll admit I was not happy with how the character turned out in X-Men Origins: Wolverine but seeing Reynolds in the test footage gave me »

Contest: Win 'The Rover' Starring Robert Pattinson On DVD

23 September 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One movie that's been a favorite this year around The Playlist offices is David Michod's "The Rover." The film premiered at Cannes to huge buzz and solid reviews, but when it hit theaters, it deserved a much bigger audience than it got. The good news is the movie is now arriving on home video, and we've got a couple of copies to give away. Starring Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy, the sunbaked, slow burn thriller follows a man, in a dystopian near future, who single-mindedly tracks down his stolen car. Helping him out is the brother of one of the gang member's that took the vehicle, and the pair embark on an odyssey that changes them both. It's great stuff. So how can you nab "The Rover" on DVD? Follow us on Twitter and tweet the following: “I want to win The Rover from @ThePlaylist. #WinThePlaylistContest.” Your final »
