Fantastic Fest 2016 Interview: Director André Øvredal on The Autopsy Of Jane Doe & If We’ll Ever See More From the World of Trollhunter

13 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director André Øvredal’s latest film, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, recently enjoyed its debut here in Austin for the 2016 Fantastic Fest. The story follows a father and son (Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch) who work as coroners in their family mortuary business. One night, the sheriff drops off the corpse of a young woman found at a crime scene, and the duo have only a short amount of time to try and piece together what happened to the mysterious woman. But as their examination progresses, the circumstances surrounding the woman’s death become more and more unusual, revealing terrifying secrets the further they get in their work.

While in Austin, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Øvredal, who discussed why he felt The Autopsy of Jane Doe was a great sophomore effort, working with his insanely talented cast, and whether or not we’ll ever see more from »

24 September 2016 7:42 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We're trapped down here!" IFC Midnight has debuted a short teaser trailer for an indie horror film titled The Autopsy of Jane Doe, a new thriller about morticians who encounter a "Jane Doe" body unlike any other. Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox play father-son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. "Perfectly preserved on the outside, Jane Doe's insides have been scarred, charred and dismembered." As they begin to go to work, they discover "increasingly bizarre clues" that hold the key to her terrifying secrets. This also stars Ophelia Lovibond, Michael McElhatton, Parker Sawyers, and Olwen Kelly. This is from the same Norwegian filmmaker who made Trollhunter. Reviews from Fantastic Fest say it has "endlessly intriguing mystery, great tension". Take a look at the teaser below.

Super Troopers 2 Photo Introduces Tyler Labine and Will Sasso as Mounties

20 September 2016 5:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since shooting began earlier this month on Super Troopers 2, the upcoming comedy sequel keeps expanding its cast. Today we have word that recent addition Tyler Labine will be joined by Hayes MacArthur and Will Sasso, with the actors playing a trio of Mounties. The Broken Lizard Twitter even showcased the first set photo with all three actors in costume.

The casting news broke at Deadline earlier today. Their report states that Hayes MacArthur plays Mountie Podein, Will Sasso plays Mountie Archambault and Tyler Labine rounds out the trio as Mountie Bellefuille. These Canadian cops are described as "rugged and manly," who all believe that Americans are "obnoxious and oafish." It wasn't revealed how these characters connect to the main characters, played by the Broken Lizard troupe.

These actors join newcomers such as Emmanuelle Chriqui, who plays a French/Canadian cultural attach&#233 trying to improve relations with the United States, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’

16 September 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Making good on the promise of his very homegrown fantasy-action hit “Trollhunter,” Norwegian helmer Andre Ovredal’s first English-language feature is something quite different: a chamber horror piece in which a corpse’s stillness only grows more ominously unreliable as it’s dissected. “The Autopsy of Jane Doe” stars Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch as father-and-son morticians whose slab subject seems to exert considerable supernatural will on one stormy night, despite her apparently very dead state. A raucous crowd-pleaser at Tiff’s midnight premiere, this taut, yet often slyly funny scarefest should do well with genre fans. IFC and Raven Banner have picked up distribution rights for the U.S. and Canada, respectively.

Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing’s nicely honed screenplay opens with police investigating a bloody crime scene: Four ordinary residents have been found slaughtered in their small-town Virginia home. All signs indicate that they were trying »

Super Troopers 2 recruits Rob Lowe and Emmanuelle Chriqui

16 September 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production officially underway in Boston on the crowdfunded sequel to 2001’s cult comedy Super Troopers, it seems as though the film’s full cast is finally starting to be revealed. According to Deadline (source links here and here), Rob Lowe, who is fresh off of his Comedy Central Roast, and Emmanuelle Chriqui, whose Hulu drama Shut Eye is only a few months away from release, have signed on to star in the upcoming feature film.

Reportedly, Lowe will be playing a character named Guy Le Franc, who the outlet describes as a “former hockey player and current mayor” of a Canadian town that borders the troopers’ town of Spurbury, Vermont.

On the other hand, Chriqui is set to play “Genevieve Aubois, a French/Canadian cultural attaché focused on relations with the U.S.” On the actress, director Jay Chandrasekhar said, “Emmanuelle and I met years ago and have been »

Super Troopers 2 Lands Entourage Star Emmanuelle Chriqui

16 September 2016 11:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production back on track for the highly-anticipated comedy sequel Super Troopers 2, the cast keeps growing. Today we have word that Emmanuelle Chriqui has signed on to this long-awaited follow-up, playing Genevieve Aubois, a French/Canadian cultural attach&#233 who is trying to foster relations with the United States. This news comes just two days after we got our first look at Rob Lowe's Guy Le Franc, a former hockey player who serves as the mayor of a Canadian border town near Quebec.

Deadline has the news of Emmanuelle Chriqui's casting, but it isn't known how large or small her role is, or if she has any connection to Rob Lowe's Canadian character Guy Le Franc. The original Super Troopers was set in Spurbury, Vermont, a fictional town close to the U.S./Canada border, and it seems that at least part of this sequel is set in Canada. »

Comedy Sequel Super Troopers 2 Recruits Rob Lowe

16 September 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like the Lizards have made space in their ranks for one more – Deadline reports that How to Be a Latin Lover star Rob Lowe has climbed aboard cop comedy sequel, Super Troopers 2.

After lensing late last year, it’s unclear if Jay Chandrasekhar’s long-anticipated follow-up is still shooting last-minute scenes or, in the more likely scenario, have now set up shop in Boston to capture some additional material. Either way, Lowe is along for the ride, and is attached to the part of play Guy Le Franc, a “former hockey player and the current mayor of a Quebec Canadian border town.”

Plot details are still being kept under lock and key for the crowdfunding darling, after Super Troopers 2 blew past all expectations to secure $4.5 million, comfortably surpassing the initial goal of $2 million. Such success hasn’t gone unnoticed either, after Fox Searchlight swooped in to pick up North American distribution rights. »

Movie Review – Morgan (2016)

9 September 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Morgan. 2016

Directed by Luke Scott

Starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Kate Mara, Rose Leslie, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Brian Cox, and Paul Giamatti

Synopsis:

A corporate risk-management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.

Luke Scott’s (yes, the son of Ridley Scott) directorial debut Morgan is essentially Ex Machina for dummies. There’s really no nicer way to put it than that. Essentially, all sense of subtlety and stimulating subtext on the always profound and captivating theme of man playing God is lost and disowned for the sake of going for gory deaths and nonstop action.

It’s all unfortunate considering that the first 30 minutes or so of the movie seem to be going somewhere interesting, even if it is nothing refreshing at all. Basically, a bunch of scientists have created a living organism that is the titular Morgan, a »

Second Opinion – Morgan (2016)

4 September 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Morgan, 2016.

Directed by Luke Scott.

Starring Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rose Leslie, Michael Yare, Toby Jones, Michelle Yeoh, Brian Cox and Paul Giamatti.

 

Synopsis:

A corporate risk management consultant must decide whether or not to terminate an artificially created humanoid being.

 

Questions over whether humans should mess with AI, genetics and so on, has littered our screens for decades. In his feature film debut Luke Scott (son of Ridley) delivers a solid but by the numbers thriller. After violently attacking one of her “friends” human/AI hybrid Morgan (Taylor-Joy) is considered a threat to the corporation that owns her (headed up by a typically shady Brian Cox). Enter risk management consultant Lee Weathers (Mara) who sets about examining the scientists that surround Morgan. The isolated scientists and their behaviour towards Morgan makes for an interesting microcosm of humanity. Their love for their creation Morgan is understandable and the family dynamics »

Morgan review

2 September 2016 9:36 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Published Date  Friday, September 2, 2016 - 17:36

Wears a hoodie. Plays her music at an excruciatingly high volume. Fed up of being cooped up indoors. Glowers at authority figures with simmering hostility. Yes, Morgan’s just your average teenager, really - apart from the small detail that she’s a genetically-engineered super-being with powers of precognition and an unaccountable affinity for martial arts.

Morgan, played with pleasing intensity by Anya-Taylor Joy, resides behind bullet-proof perspex in a concrete bunker deep underground. Created for hazy purposes by a futuristic corporation, Morgan’s only five years old, but her rapid rate of growth means she looks much older. Over those five years, the scientists charged with looking after and monitoring Morgan have formed an emotional attachment to the super-powered youth; among them you’ll find Dr Simon Ziegler (Toby Jones), her surrogate father figure, and Amy (Rose Leslie), who becomes a kind of big sister. »

17 (!) New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in September 2016, And the Best Episodes of Each

1 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: Typically, we recommend six or seven series newly available on Netflix in the coming month, but this September is chock full of choices — in part because fall shows are starting up again and networks want to make sure fans are caught up on prior seasons. So, this month, we’ve selected 17 high-priority choices and have highlighted our favorites. Choose for yourself, or settle in for the ultimate binge.]

1. “Easy” Season 1 (available September 22)

Why Should I Watch It? Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Jake Johnson, Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Aya Cash and Elizabeth Reaser star in this new eight-episode anthology series, but even that kind of star power can’t compete with a brilliant creator. Good thing “Easy” springs from the mind of indie favorite Joe Swanberg. The “Uncle Kent” and “Drinking Buddies” writer-director is taking on his first TV series with a comfortable setting — Chicago — and subject — “love, sex, technology and culture.” We can’t wait.

Best Episode: Every episode Aya Cash appears in will be the best, so hopefully she’s in every single one.

Film Review: ‘Morgan’

29 August 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robots, supercomputers, automatons: The history of sci-fi can be boiled down to a laundry list of humanoid machines whose very existence raises the question, “Yes, but do they have feelings?” The title character of “Morgan” is, in many ways, a successor to all those spooky-chilly faux-human techno marvels. Except that Morgan does have feelings. She’s not a replicant built out of diodes and synthetic skin; she was bred — and born — in a lab out of synthetic DNA. She’s a not-so-far-fetched version of a “human” being who emerges out of the era of cloning and the corporate obsession with genetic modification.

Anya Taylor-Joy, the actress who plays her, was 19 when “Morgan” was shot, but she looks much younger, and though she does have eyebrows, they barely register. All you notice, under Morgan’s gray hoodie, is her luminous ghostly pallor, her upper lip cut like an “M,” and the »

Apes director Rupert Wyatt to write and direct the sci-fi, Captive State

24 August 2016 11:36 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 25, 2016

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt is tackling an original sci-fi movie next, called Captive State...

There are a couple of exciting, original sci-fi movies on the horizon, with Denis Villeneuve's Arrival (based on the Ted Chiang short story Story Of Your Life) and Passengers (from Headhunters director Morten Tyldum) currently top of our must-watch list. Now, Rupert Wyatt - director of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Mark Wahlberg drama The Gambler - has added another one: something called Captive State.

Precious little is known about the project other than that intriguing title, but Variety reports that Wyatt co-wrote the screenplay with his wife, Erica Beeney, and that studios are currently bidding to get their hands on it.

Wyatt's track record suggests that Captive State's well worth our attention; his debut, 2008's The Escapist, was a tense and economical »
