Kirk is feeling a little lonely in deleted scene from Star Trek Beyond

22 September 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you details of the upcoming Blu-ray release for Star Trek Beyond [see here], and now USA Today has unveiled a rather humourous deleted scene from the Justin Lin-directed sci-fi sequel, which takes place on Starbase Yorktown and sees a lonely Kirk trying to find some company, before being sneezed on by Soccty’s pal Keenser; check it out here…

Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

The Promise” star Shoreh Aghdashloo believes that her film, which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week, sheds light on today’s Syrian crisis. “What takes place in the movie 100 years ago, the Armenian Genocide and the background of this beautiful triangle love story, is what has been happening for the last 100 years and it is still happening,” the Iranian-American actress said in an interview with TheWrap. “It was so important for all of us to bring it to people’s attention.

‘The Promise’ review [Tiff ’16]

13 September 2016 4:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Promise review: Oscar Isaac gains leading man status in this extensive historical epic set at the end of the First World War when Turkey executed over 1.5 million Armenians.

The Promise review by Paul Heath, Toronto International Film Festival 2016.

The Promise review

The film opens with a truly eye-opening and terrifying title card – one that states that 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Turkish during World War I. I was aware of the terrible genocide that occurred during the war, but my sheer ignorance wasn’t aware of its horrific scale.

Terry George directs this epic, ambitious depiction of this horrific mass genocide from one hundred or so years ago. Set in Turkey, the film follows medical student Michael (Oscar Isaac), a brilliant young man who takes the firm decision to settle down with a local girl (Angela Sarafyan) to secure his position at a prestigious school in Constantinople (now »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Promise’

13 September 2016 2:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Our revenge will be to survive, and have children,” rallies the mayor of an Ottoman city whose Armenian population is targeted for annihilation in Terry George’s “The Promise” — “…and one day, to make movies,” he might as well add, since that is ultimately what “The Promise” is about: Aiming to do for the 1915 Armenian Genocide what “Doctor Zhivago” did for the Russian Revolution, this sweeping romantic epic intends to dramatize a dark chapter so often denied and so seldom depicted onscreen — and yet, the events in question deserve better than a sloggy melodrama in which the tragedy is forced to take a backseat to a not especially compelling love triangle.

Willed into being by Armenian investor-philanthropist Kirk Kerkorian, who established Survivor Pictures in order to finance this project before he passed away last year, “The Promise” was conceived as a glossy, English-language entertainment — not to be mistaken for the »

‘Hotel Rwanda’s Terry George Looks At Armenian Genocide With ‘The Promise’: Toronto Q&A

11 September 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The last time he introduced a hot button film at the Toronto Film Festival on a genocidal campaign, Terry George infused Hotel Rwanda with the momentum it needed to break through and make a global impact. He’s back here with The Promise, a sweeping drama set against the backdrop of the Wwi-era genocide of Armenians by Turkish troops. The film stars Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, James Cromwell and Shohreh Aghdashloo. George wrote the films In The Name of th… »

The Promise Trailer: Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac Feud in War Drama

10 September 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fresh off a banner year that included Ex Machina and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac returns to team up with Christian Bale and Charlotte Le Bon in the upcoming drama The Promise. While a release date hasn't been given for this World War I drama, Survival Pictures has released the first trailer for The Promise. If it does end up getting released at the end of this year, it could end up becoming a sleeper pick during awards season.

The new trailer debuted on Survival Pictures' YouTube, offering our first footage from the movie. The story is set in the year 1914, and as the Great War looms, the vast Ottoman Empire is crumbling. Constantinople (Istanbul), its once vibrant, multicultural capital is about to be consumed by chaos.

Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale Get Embroiled in War in First Trailer For ‘The Promise’

10 September 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Having Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac as the leads of any film would be enough to warrant a ticket purchase, but even moreso when one of them isn’t in any sort of spandex. This opportunity arrives shortly as they’ve teamed for The Promise, which premieres tomorrow at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the first trailer has landed today.

Directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda), it follows an Armenian medical student (Oscar Isaac), an artist (Charlotte Le Bon), and a worldly American journalist (Christian Bale) who form a love triangle amid the chaos of the First World War. The first trailer sells the sort of sweeping period romance epic we don’t get enough of these days, so hopefully it delivers.

Check out the trailer below ahead of a Tiff premiere.

First Trailer for 'The Promise' Featuring Oscar Isaac & Christian Bale

9 September 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He wants us to help his family escape... We have to help him." Survival Pictures has unveiled a trailer for an indie drama called The Promise, set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. The film follows a love triangle between Michael, a brilliant medical student, the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, and Chris - a renowned American journalist based in Paris. Starring Oscar Isaac as Michael, with Christian Bale as Chris, and Charlotte Le Bon as Ana. Also featuring Angela Sarafyan, Shohreh Aghdashloo, James Cromwell, Jean Reno, Rade Serbedzija & Michael Stahl-David. This seems like a big, bold attempt to tell the story of the Armenian genocide featuring with an impressive cast, which actually makes this worth watching. This also doesn't look so much like an indie, rather a very large production. I'm curious to see it. Here's the first trailer (+ promo poster) for Terry George's The Promise, direct »

With Star Trek Beyond making less money than its previous two movies week to week so far, and the lack of enthusiasm for the franchise’s 50 year anniversary, Oli and Luke argue that Star Trek needs a super producer in the vein of Kevin Feige or Kathleen Kennedy to properly exploit Paramount’s most under-used property.

Star Trek Beyond continued the rebooted franchise’s string of rather rubbish villains, with Idris Elba’s Krall being one of the weakest parts of the movie.

But Oli reckons the parts are there to turn Beyond into a Heart of Darkness-style journey into Kirk’s psyche…with Krall as the story’s Colonel Kurtz.

Simon Pegg explains Carol Marcus’ absence in Star Trek Beyond

7 August 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise reunited last month for the third entry in Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek series, Star Trek Beyond, although their was one noticeable absentee: Kirk’s old flame Carol Marcus, played by Alice Eve in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

Speaking to io9, screenwriter and star Simon Pegg has explained why they decided not to include the character in Beyond, stating that:

“We thought rather than have Carol Marcus be not used to a reasonable capacity, let’s just not include her, have her be alive, in canon, and be ready to come back at any time… I think we had some lines to explain her absence in one of the initial drafts that had her going off to start work on the Genesis project and do sort of very, very early research on that, but it didn’t make it into the final cut. »

First Trailer For ‘Two Lovers and a Bear’ Starring Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan

4 August 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a promising initial line-up, the Toronto International Film Festival has delivered more titles with their full Canadian slate. Among the line-up is Xavier Dolan‘s It’s Only the End of the World, Bruce MacDonald‘s new feature Weirdos, Deepa Mehta‘s Anatomy of Violence, as well as Two Lovers and a Bear, starring Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan, which we have the first trailer for today.

We said in our review from Cannes, “Kim Nguyen’s Two Lovers and a Bear is a film that suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. Like an indie playlist stuck on constant shuffle, unapologetically reveling in a sort of manic unclassifiable genre. This isn’t always necessarily a bad thing, but, for some reason, Nguyen’s scattershot tonal shifts — which hop between a romance on the rocks; a self-serious study of grieving; and a surreal buddy comedy — can prove quite jarring. »

Star Trek Beyond crosses $160 million

1 August 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The third outing for the rebooted Star Trek franchise couldn’t quite match up to Jason Bourne’s debut, and its drop off could spell trouble.

Although the film took second place in the weekend box office war, Star Trek Beyond dropped 59.9% to earn $24 million domestically – the biggest drop-off of the rebooted franchise so far. Its domestic total now sits at $105 million. Both Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness had hit $146 million by its second week, which could show there is declining interest in the series.

The film has opened in many of its international territories – but not China – and has a worldwide total of $160 million. Star Trek earned $385 million back in 2009, and Star Trek Into Darkness ended on $467 million.

Star Trek 4 has already been announced, but the decline in box office could mean the production won’t be given $180 million this time around.

Star Trek Beyond opens to $89 million worldwide

25 July 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary, Paramount Pictures has unleashed the third instalment of its rebooted series – and the thirteenth movie overall – with the Justin Lin-directed Star Trek Beyond enjoying a worldwide opening haul of $89.3 million.

Domestically, Beyond topped the chart with $59.3 million, which is down on the previous two instalments, with 2009’s Star Trek debuting to $75.2 million and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness opening with $70.2 million.

Beyond cost $185 million, so should go on to turn a small profit for the studio, which will surely be a relief for Paramount given they have already announced a fourth movie, which will see Chris Hemsworth reprising the role of George Kirk.

'Beyond': 'Most Satisfying' Among Rebooted 'Star Trek' Movies, But Gay Sulu a Dramatic Miscalculation

23 July 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Star Trek Beyond' with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk: Will movie franchise reboot achieve 'escape velocity'? 'Star Trek Beyond' Review: Movie franchise needs to boldly go where J.J. Abrams has never gone before We're never told what “beyond” refers to in Star Trek Beyond, the 13th film in the venerated sci-fi series. But here's a theory: if the franchise is to regain its footing after the tepid returns of Star Trek Into Darkness, it will have to move beyond J.J. Abrams, the writer/director who used his brand of copycat magic to relaunch the series in 2009. In our reboot era, he's got the canny ability to provide older audiences with enough familiarity to keep them under the tent while giving new audiences enough youthful verve so they don't feel the franchise isn't for them. If you think that's not worth something, see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »
