‘The Belko Experiment’ Begins in First Red Band Trailer for James Gunn-Scripted Thriller

30 November 2016 8:16 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Before he kicks off next year’s summer movie season with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, another serving of James Gunn will be arriving in theaters a few months prior. The Belko Experiment, directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), is scripted and produced by the Slither director and follows a social experiment that turns deadly. Ahead of a March release the first red band trailer, which sets up the horrific scenario with the wit one might expect from Gunn and company.

We said in our Tiff review, “Yet the problem comes with tone. Having been scripted by James Gunn and helmed by Wolf Creek director Greg McClean — remember, the 2005 Australian outback thriller bundled into the torture-porn wave? — there’s something of a tangible dissonance. The grisly grindhouse requirements may be met, but one can’t help but think, if done by Troma veteran Gunn (not known by anyone as »

First Look at James Gunn's The Belko Experiment

9 August 2016 6:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last year, while filmmaker James Gunn was working on the script for his new superhero sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2, he was also sharing updates on a new film he had written and will produce, entitled The Belko Experiment. The filmmaker revealed that the idea for this story came to him in a dream, and he spent the next two weeks hammering out the script. In March, Australian director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) came aboard to direct, with production taking place last summer, but we haven't heard anything about the project since then. Earlier today, the Toronto International Film Festival announced that The Belko Experiment will have its world premiere as part of the Midnight Madness section, while the first photos and plot details were unveiled.

The director revealed that after MGM president Jonathan Glickman wanted to make the film, he had to promise to stay true to the »

Movie Review – The Finest Hours (2016)

1 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Finest Hours, 2016.

Directed by Craig Gillespie.

Starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz, Kyle Gallner, John Magaro, Graham McTavish, Michael Raymond-James, Beau Knapp, Josh Stewart, Abraham Benrubi, and Eric Bana.

Synopsis:

The Coast Guard makes a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952.

The aggrandizing and melodramatic delivery of The Finest Hours will surely put some viewers off, but there’s no denying that the period piece, dramatic recounting of what the film describes as “The most daring rescue in U.S. Coast Guard history” is pulled off with elegance and grace. One of cinema’s greatest abilities is the power to transport us to different times and places, and while that is successfully captured here (whether it be with 1950s wardrobes or vehicles), it is the personality of the characters »

Film Review: ‘The Finest Hours’

18 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Finest Hours” tells the story of a little-known yet fairly incredible 1950s rescue mission, in which a four-man band of Coast Guard troops went above and beyond the call of duty, steering out into impossible sea conditions in the dead of night to reach a crippled oil tanker. So perhaps the worst one could say about Craig Gillespie’s film is that, rather than their finest hours, the whole cast and crew all put in a solid shift at the office making the movie, producing a perfectly entertaining, sometimes quite well-crafted disaster drama that nonetheless retreats from the memory almost as soon as the credits roll. The disappointing returns for Ron Howard’s recent seafaring saga “In the Heart of the Sea” should give the producers pause, but the film certainly offers enough to provide a modest-sized audience with some respite from the horrors of the January multiplex.

Chris Pine Dives Into The Deep Blue In Intense Trailer For The Finest Hours

12 January 2016 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Left at the mercy of mother nature, in 1952 oil tanker SS Pendleton was left stricken off the eastern seaboard in the face of a fierce nor’easter, tossed about like a kite dancing in hurricane-force winds and 60-foot high waves. Such an intense storm lead to one of the most daring small boat rescues in coast guard history, and it’s little wonder why it hasn’t been projected onto the silver screen long before Craig Gillespie and The Finest Hours appeared on the horizon.

Nevertheless, with little over two weeks until release, Disney has debuted a new promo for the real-life maritime thriller, placing first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) in the eye of the storm so to speak as the only senior officer on board. When disaster strikes, the crew quickly realize that they have three hours tops before the ravaged ship plunges to the depths of the North Atlantic, »

'The Finest Hours' Set Visit Part 2 with Ben Foster and Kyle Gallner

6 January 2016 10:55 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney will continue box office domination with the January 29th release of The Finest Hours. It is the incredible true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most dangerous sea rescue. The film is an adaptation of the best selling book by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. In the winter of 1952, a powerful nor'easter capsized the oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, off the coast of Massachusetts. A group of intrepid sailors, led by Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), took a rescue boat into the storm.

Movieweb was invited to the set of The Finest Hours in Quincy, Massachusetts in November of 2014. The production was fairly secretive at this point. Apart from the title, which was obviously correlated to the book, I had no idea what to expect on this trip. What we saw that day was knock your socks off amazing, filmmaking on an epic scale.
