The 11 Indie Films You Must See This March

1 March 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

#1. It Follows (March 13)(Film Page) Director: David Robert Mitchell Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, Lili Sepe Criticwire Average: A- Why is it a "Must See"? Director David Robert Mitchell follows up "The Myth of the American Sleepover" with an expressionistic teen horror movie that's like nothing else. While "Myth of the American Sleepover" took the whiny young archetypes of a John Hughes movie in an expressionistic direction, "It Follows" turns to eighties teen slashers of the "Halloween" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" variety while elevating them to a more abstract plane, rendering the looming threat of adulthood in ominous terms. #2. While We're Young (March 27)(Film Page) Director: Noah Baumbach Cast: Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Charles Grodin Criticwire Average: B+ Why is it a "Must See"?

James Franco Targets Father-Daughter Comedy 'Why Him?'

27 February 2015 5:01 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Franco is in talks to star in the 20th Century Fox comedy Why Him?, which will be produced by Shawn Levy's 21 Laps company and Ben Stiller's Red Hour Pictures. Both of the production companies are based on the 20th Century Fox lot.

The plot centers on a Midwestern father who takes his family on a trip to Stanford, to visit his daughter during the Christmas holiday.

New Trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young Starring Ben Stiller & Naomi Watts

27 February 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

While We're Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. »

Review: 'Archer' Season 6 Episode 8 'The Kanes' Takes 'Bullitt' For a Ride

26 February 2015 7:22 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"I swear to God I had something for this." (Episode Summary)The scenario is simple: Archer and Lana hop on a plane to visit her parents because they have yet to meet their grandchild. Sure, some awkward conversations and unfortunate circumstances are bound to pop up in a worse case scenario, but the expedition as a whole is nothing out of the ordinary. Nothing, however, is ever that simple for Archer. First of all, despite what Archer doesn't remember, he has met Mr. and Mrs. Kane before — and it did not go well. That means when he shows up at the doorstep, half in the bag, the Berkeley-based couple with a preference for science over swordplay is predisposed to dislike Lana's baby daddy. And they do — not like him, that is. Throw in an objectively horrifying but subjectively hysterical misunderstanding in the hot tub (more to come on that incident »

New Trailer Arrives For Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young

26 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Baumbach has carved out a successful slate of features exploring a variety of demographics. From The Squid And The Whale‘s dysfunctional family dynamic to Frances Ha‘s directionless-yet-awesome protagonist, the director has tackled his fair share of neuroses. With his latest offering, comedy drama While We’re Young, his sights are set on investigating an entirely new type of character.

The film stars Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller, a happily-married couple each in their forties. Having made peace with the prospect of a childless future, the pair broaden their horizons when they befriend a much younger couple – played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. And therein begins the next stage in their life as Watts and Stiller commence with a series of pratfalls during their attempts at impressing their youthful companions.

Last fall we saw the first teaser, that set up the premise nicely while offering both leads a solid amount of one-liners. »
