Earlier this year I reviewed Austin Chick’s Girls Against Boys, a mean-spirited gender hating flick with little value and a misguiding name as there was never really a battle. When I read the title Girls Against Boys, I actually imagined a movie more along the lines of Katie Aselton’s Black Rock, a true boys versus girls fight for survival penned by “Mumblecore” aficionado Mark Duplass. It’s very much the type of horror you’d expect from Duplass, finding terror in an incredibly (alright, somewhat) realistic scenario, but fans of the Duplass brothers will definitely see their independent influence permeating Aselton’s second directorial feature. Though Aselton has had a pretty busy career thus far, most of you will probably know her as Jenny in The League – but Black Rock is a definite departure from the wisecracking wifey us Fantasy Football fans know and love.

Kate Bosworth, 30, stars in the thriller Black Rock, in theaters now, and chatted with People this week about "one last thing" ... Last sunset I watched: "Last night. I live in the hills of L.A., and I get a beautiful view of the sunset on my patio. The sunrise, however - that normally escapes me." Last reality TV I watched: "I love all the cooking shows like Chopped and Top Chef. I've just started to learn to cook in the last couple of years, and I love it. My specialty is a sausage ragu; it takes about six or seven hours to cook. »

A movie like this one really works on your sense of dread because of the way the characters deal with the simple reality of the escalating plot. Honestly, how would you react when you suddenly find yourself in a “The Most Dangerous Game” type situation and are being hunted on a secluded island by seriously demented dudes with guns? It’s with a keen sense of empathy and pervasive fear that second-time director Katie Aselton — along with husband, screenwriter, and indie director in his own right Mark Duplass — mold the characters in Black Rock.
Three women – played by Aselton, Lake Bell, and Kate Bosworth – reluctantly agree to spend the weekend camping on an island off the coast of Maine as a means to mend their broken friendship. Bell’s character Lou has wronged Aselton’s Abby, and Bosworth’s Sarah attempts to use the island – previously a secret meetingplace from »

Here’s the thing. If your movie is going to feature two attractive women, completely nude, my first reaction shouldn’t be to laugh. And my second reaction most definitely shouldn’t be to hope they get dressed as soon as possible. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Black Rock is a new thriller with a fairly unusual pedigree. Katie Aselton (The League) stars and directs from a script by her traditionally light-hearted husband, Mark Duplass, and the resulting film is an occasionally successful hybrid of character piece and generic slasher. It essentially drops well-written characters into a highly traditional genre scenario, and while the combination has its benefits it also allows for more than a few issues. Sarah (Kate Bosworth) has planned a relaxing weekend trip with her two best friends since childhood, but she’s neglected to tell each of them that the other is also coming along. While »

Last week Dread Central attended a press conference for the upcoming indie thriller Black Rock, and we’ve brought back some highlights from the event with co-writer/director Katie Aselton and co-star Lake Bell.
Black Rock follows three lifelong friends (Aselton who also co-stars, Bell and Kate Bosworth) who look to rekindle their friendship by returning to an empty island off the coast of Maine they used to visit together throughout their childhoods. Once there, they realize they are not alone when they encounter three servicemen who have come to the island to hunt; as things quickly get out of hand between the two groups, the women are left fighting for their lives and looking to escape what used to be their refuge.
Check out the highlights from the Black Rock (review) press conference below, and look for the film in limited theaters and on VOD everywhere this weekend.
Question: Katie, »
The story of Black Rock begins as a charming one. Three childhood friends reunite to spend a no-frills weekend camping on an island off the coast of their Maine hometown. While relationships have been tested, and ultimately damaged, over the years, the girls attempt to reconcile while spending a few days away from their busy, adult lives. Until, that is, disaster strikes. Turns out, Abby (Katie Aselton), Lou (Lake Bell) and Sarah (Kate Bosworth) aren’t the only ones on the island that weekend, and when things go awry, they must fight for their lives.

"Spock, I do not know too much about these little Tribbles yet, but there is one thing that I have discovered. I like them … better than I like you." –Dr. McCoy, "Star Trek" (1967)
Greetings from the apocalypse! The trouble with Tribbles is not how cute they are but how much they multiply, or in the case of "Star Trek Into Darkness," the silly plot point for which they cameo. That's the only thing I'll spoil from that movie (besides that it stinks), but luckily there's some sweet alternatives this week that boldly go where no J.J. Abrams movie has gone before … coherence.

Pow! In Theaters
Oh boy. "Star Trek Into Dumbness" finally fulfills J.J. Abrams' five-year mission to run this franchise through a Cuisinart of stupidity. I would need a spoiler avalanche to make a proper case for how this sequel squanders classic characters and scenarios from »

Kate Bosworth isn't one to necessarily fall for her director. But this time around, it just couldn't be helped. Appearing on Thursday night's Chelsea Lately to hype her latest flick, Black Rock, the 30-year-old actress spilled to Chelsea Handler on her relationship with indie auteur Michael Polish, whom she got engaged to last year. "By the way, they're very, very in love…so it's very sweet. Because you met him on a set, right?" asked the funnylady. "We did…we worked together on a movie called Big Sur," revealed Bosworth.

In the man’s world that is moviemaking, Katie Aselton’s name continues to rise on the list of interesting female filmmakers.

She and on-screen husband Shepard decided to give each other one night before settling down in which they could do whatever they wanted, despite the fact that imagining the other with someone else brings great pain. Freebie has a hell of an ambiguous ending, »

It can be difficult to look anything besides tired and sweaty at big music fests, but actress Kate Bosworth makes looking fresh and fashionable on festival grounds easy.

"Our intent was to create fresh, wearable, and effortless festival pieces," Bosworth said. "I am »
Chicago – I really admire the girl power approach to the thriller genre in Katie Aselton’s surprising genre effort, “Black Rock,” but the admirable effort doesn’t change the fact that the movie just doesn’t feel fully fleshed out nor does it play to the strengths of its filmmaker. The what-if scenario that incites the action of “Black Rock” is captivating but Aselton and co-writer/husband Mark Duplass don’t build on that scenario enough to make the venture successful overall. I really wanted to like “Black Rock” given how much I truly think Aselton holds “The League” together and love Duplass but the script needed more work and the direction needed to be tighter. We need more directors as unpredictable as Aselton (after “The Freebie,” No One would have predicted her follow-up would look like this) but just being unpredictable isn’t enough.
