Stonehearst Asylum Trailer – The Old Inmates Running Things Gag Eh?

7 August 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

On October 24th, a star-studded cast is going to take you on a very strange trip through Stonehearst Asylum. Kate Beckinsale, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim Sturgess are all residing within the walls of the Asylum (along with several other notable cast members), and as we venture inside with a young Doctor, we’re going to find out that nothing is as it seems, and it’s a tricky affair to figure out just who the crazy people are.

While everything about the general idea of this one might not have everyone pre-ordering their tickets, there is more than meets the eye at play behind-the-scenes as well. It’s based on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, just to start, and you’ve got to wonder how we got all these names attached to a project, if there wasn’t something very cool going on with the screenplay. »

All-star British cast gets Gothic in Stonehearst Asylum

1 August 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | 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

1 August 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | 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

1 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | 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. Starring Kate Beckinsale, Ben Kingsley, Michael Caine, Brendan Gleeson, and Jim »

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

1 August 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | 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, »

Stonehearst Asylum Trailer And Poster Welcome You To The Nuthouse

1 August 2014 5:42 AM, PDT | 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. »

Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess Face Insanity In First Stonehearst Asylum Trailer

31 July 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Did we just watch the entirety of Brad Anderson.s newest thriller Stonehearst Asylum, or was that, in fact, just a trailer like it's labeled? All this talk of mysteries turned into reveals and then everything smooshed together; all the while, Kate Beckinsale wants to know what Jim Sturgess is doing there. This isn.t exactly the movie I was hoping for back when it was called Eliza Graves. Still, I.m a sucker for asylum movies. And Anderson knows a thing or two about asylum movies, having directed 2001.s stellar psychological twister Session 9. (Still the best thing David Caruso has ever done.) With the haughtily titled Stonehearst Asylum, he.s got Ben Kingsley playing opposite Michael Caine along with Brendan Gleeson to back up his two leads. The pic.s plot is also fairly intriguing, and I like the period look and feel of it. But this trailer »

The Inmates Take Over in the Stonehearst Asylum Trailer and Poster

31 July 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One weird thing about Stonehearst Asylum is that I had never heard of the film before today, despite a cast featuring Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley and Kate Beckinsale, but suddenly it's a real entity with a trailer and poster and everything. Of course that can happen when you've been operating under the name Eliza Graves (a film I had been aware of) for several years and haven't announced a title change.  Brad Anderson (The Call) directed it from a screenplay by Joe Gangemi.  The film is based on the Edgar Allan Poe story The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether. In the film Jim Sturgess plays 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 no initial idea of a recent, horrifying staffing change.  The film also stars Brendan Gleeson and David Thewlis. »

31 July 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"All games must end." I suppose that's true. A trailer has debuted for an Edgar Allan Poe-inspired film called Stonehearst Asylum, originally known as Eliza Graves, referring to a character played by Kate Beckinsale. The film is being readied for release this October and to show you what it's all about they've debuted this trailer, which delves deep into a psychological mystery set at the creepy Stonehearst Asylum. The cast includes Michael Caine, Jim Sturgess, Ben Kingsley, David Thewlis, Brendan Gleeson, Jason Flemyng and Sinéad Cusack. Despite some solid names, this looks a bit too much like Shutter Island, even though I like the Poe connection. I can't really tell if it will be any good. Check it out yourself. Here's the first official trailer for Brad Anderson's Stonehearst Asylum, originally from Yahoo: Beckinsale, Sturgess, Gleeson, Kingsley and Caine all star in this thriller loosely based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story, »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Stonehearst Asylum' Starring Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine & Ben Kingsley

31 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When you pair up Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley—reunited over two decades on from "Without A Clue"—you can bet we'll watch. But we certainly have to give pause when the project in question, "Stonehearst Asylum" (formerly known as "Eliza Graves"), is hitting VOD the same day as theatrical. Granted, the stigma with VOD isn't the same as it once was, but that said, the strategy still does make you consider the quality of some projects. Anyway, you can judge for yourself as the first trailer for the movie has landed. Kate Beckinsale and Jim Sturgess co-star in this one, directed by Brad Anderson ("The Machinist," "Session 9"), and based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, that follows a med school grad who takes a position at an asylum where things aren't what they seem. It would appear that the inmates and the doctors running are equally crazy, »

Release Date and New Title for Edgar Allan Poe-Based ‘Eliza Graves’

30 July 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The phrase “the inmates are running the asylum” usually isn’t meant in the literal sense, but in an upcoming film based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe, it could be accurate. Previously known as Eliza Graves and boasting a cast that includes Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley, Millennium Entertainment’s Stonehearst Asylum has received a new release date that perfectly fits its chilling premise.

Stonehearst Asylum, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, is now slated for an October 24th release, just in time for Halloween. Here’s the synopsis:

“A new doctor comes to apprentice at a mental institution and meets a beautiful patient that he falls in love with amidst a set of circumstances which may be more complicated and dangerous than they seem.”

Directed by Brad Anderson (Session 9) and written by Joseph Gangemi (Fear Itself, Wind Chill), Stonehearst Asylum stars Kate Beckinsale, »
