The Ballad of Franks and Beans: Stephens’ Dips Toes and Other Bits into Political Scandal

It is still very much a man’s world, or so the expectedly corrupt judicial landscape seems to be sighing as it unrolls before our eyes with near clinical precision and predictability in Mora Stephens’ sophomore feature Zipper. Another politically minded effort, her first feature in a decade since 2005’s Democrat/Republican ideals face-off Conventioneers, this thriller skirts in and out of issue concerning addiction and the abuse of power without really delving into either beyond superficialities. Featuring a notable, comely cast and co-written by Stephens’ spouse Joel Viertel, there’s a dark cynicism managing to rear its face from time to time, but given we’re never surprised or endeared towards this group of slow-to-strike piranhas, this scandal sheet is a tale as old as time.

Sam Ellis (Patrick Wilson) is a federal prosecutor »

Film Review: Lily Tomlin Fuels the Journey Depicted in ‘Grandma’

28 August 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – There is a circumstantial and frank presentation of abortion in the new Paul Weitz film “Grandma,” and it probably could not have resulted the way it did if the story wasn’t anchored by the great Lily Tomlin. She portrays the title character, helping her granddaughter get to the procedure.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

There are some clunky scenes along the way to the clinic, but the film does point toward the emotional element in the choice women make, above and beyond the abortion “issue.” By using Lily Tomlin’s character – a representative of the 1960s, when abortion was illegal – as a contrast to her granddaughter’s fate, is almost to have the whole history of the debate portrayed. The difference is it’s not done with placards and loudmouths, but through the very human decision that has to be made – difficult, unfortunate and vital to provide. Despite some über surliness by the curmudgeonly drawn Lily character, »

Zipper – The Review

28 August 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

By Dana Jung

Sam Ellis (Patrick Wilson) is a high-powered lawyer with the U.S. Attorney’s office who is on a fast track to a higher political office.  He has a loving wife (Lena Headey) and young son, the admiration of his colleagues, and the interest of a Washington power-broker (Richard Dreyfuss).  In fact, Sam has everything going his way in life.  But something is not quite right with Sam.  There is a disconnect going on in the seemingly comfortable relationship with his wife, and Sam is turning to other sexual outlets to relieve the tension of his stressful job and super-powered future.

When a routine interview with a witness on a case turns out to be with a high-end escort, things begin to change for Sam.  No longer satisfied with masturbating to internet porn, Sam makes contact with an escort service and starts having regular sexual encounters, with a new woman every time. »

Zachary Quinto talks Star Trek Beyond, says Spock will be paired up with Bones

27 August 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.

“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”

Interview: Actor Sam Elliott, Director Paul Weitz Visit ‘Grandma’

26 August 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Actor Sam Eliott will make you smile. The distinctive voice, his famous mustache and his character presence in a film or TV show increases any potential in the production. He recently was in Chicago with director Paul Weitz, as they teamed up in the film “Grandma,” starring the incomparable Lily Tomlin.

Grandma” has a very unique premise. Tomlin is the title character of Elle, who is visited by her granddaughter Sage (Julia Garner). The girl is seeking an abortion, and her feminist poet grandmother seems like the right fellow traveler on her way to the procedure. Sam Elliott portrays Karl, Elle’s ex-husband – she left him for a same sex partner – who harbors a resentment toward circumstances in their relationship. The two meet along the way to the clinic, and the resentment boils to the surface.

Watch 'Star Trek Beyond' Cast's Salute to Leonard Nimoy, Win a Walk-On Role

26 August 2015 3:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

He lived long and he prospered, and Leonard Nimoy is being honored by the cast of the upcoming movie "Star Trek Beyond."

Zachary Quinto, the "new" Spock, narrated a new Omaze video for the last week of the cast's charity campaign, with the winner landing a role as an extra in "Beyond." The lucky fan will be randomly chosen from the pool of donors, and funds will be split among nine organizations chosen by cast members, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Leonard Nimoy was "passionate about" St. Jude's, Zachary noted in the tribute video, which honors the late star and asks for donations in his name:

Through his legendary portrayal of Spock, he influenced countless scientists and artists, myself and the rest of the cast included. It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to call him a friend. Leonard's love for the human spirit showed in everything he did. »

20 August 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Trek Beyond, the third chapter in Paramount's rebooted Star Trek series, is continuing to shoot in Vancouver under the direction of Justin Lin. We got an early look at the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise as it sets forth on its 5 year mission in a series of Omaze videos. They didn't really show us anything substantial from the production. That changes today. Now, we actually get to see some of the cast in their official new Star Fleet uniforms. This latest set video, which arrives courtesy of Screen Crush, also has our first look at new cast member Sofia Boutella.

The Star Trek Beyond crew were shooting an outdoor scene that finds Sofia Boutella's as yet-unnamed alien crawling out of a hatch. She has white skin and unique black markings on her face. She is soon joined by Chris Pine's Captain Kirk, who has a »

Star Trek Beyond: First Look At Sofia Boutella, New Uniforms, & More

20 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to Screencrush we have some awesome first-look images and footage from the Vancouver set of Star Trek Beyond. As you can see, Kingsman: the Secret Service actress Sofia Boutella is pretty much unrecognizable as an unnamed alien character, and Kirk (Chris Pine) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) are kitted out in some new uniforms. Scotty (Simon Pegg) is wearing a more traditional costume, so it's a safe bet these aren't the latest in Starfleet fashion, and the pair are dressed for a specific mission. Star Trek Beyond also stars Idris Elba, Joe Taslim, Lydia Wilson, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho and Deep Roy. The movie is set to hit theaters on July 8, 2016. »

Lydia Wilson Joins Star Trek Beyond

18 August 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There is a lot we still don’t know about Star Trek Beyond. Its plot, for one thing, which is sort of refreshing. But casting news is harder to keep quiet and therefore word has arrived that Lydia Wilson has joined the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.Actually, scratch that. While Variety reports that she’s aboard the film, there’s no actual news on what she’ll be doing on the set. Could she be a Starfleet officer helping Kirk and co. out on their mission? Or will she be a thorn in their side, much as it appears Idris Elba will be (and we don’t just mean as in the charity video below).Simon Pegg (who returns as Scotty) and Doug Jung have written the script and Fast & Furious veteran Justin Lin is busy wrangling a cast that as usual includes Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, »

Production continues on the next Star Trek movie adventure, Star Trek Beyond, which is currently shooting. The film reunites the core cast of Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin. Justin Lin - best known for helming four Fast & Furious movies - is directing, and Simon Pegg and Doug Jung have penned the screenplay.

The main new casting addition this time around has been Idris Elba, who's playing the movie's villain. But now we learn too that martial arts actor Joe Taslim has also signed on the dotted line. He previously worked with Justin Lin on Fast & Furious 6, and also featured in The Raid. His role is said to be a "key part opposite Elba", although we know no more than that right now. »

Joe Taslim Heads For Star Trek Beyond

26 July 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You likely saw him as Jaka in The Raid, or maybe putting the hurt on our heroes as one of Luke Evans’ henchmen in Fast & Furious 6. Now Joe Taslim is headed somewhere very different, joining the cast of Star Trek Beyond. With pretty much everything about the film – beyond the presence of the Enterprise crew veterans including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin, plus new franchise faces Idris Elba and Sofia Boutella – still being kept behind a protective shield, The Hollywood Reporter offers no real details about what Taslim will be up to in the film. But the trade mag does indicate that he has a key role opposite Elba, who will be the film’s big threat. So we’d expect Kirk and co. to have some trouble with him...With a script by Pegg and Doug Jung and »

'Star Trek 3' Gets 'Fast and Furious' Martial Arts Master

24 July 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Patrick Wilson is the most self-destructive politician ever in the trailer for Zipper

24 July 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Patrick Wilson's bid for political power is threatened by his voracious sexual appetite in the trailer for Zipper.

The upcoming political drama casts Fargo's Wilson as popular Southern prosecutor Sam Ellis, whose Congressional bid could put him on the fast track to greatness.

There are only two problems – Sam has a compulsive desire to sleep with high-priced call girls and a dangerous fascination with a young intern (Dianna Agron).

Zipper is produced by Academy Award-nominated Black Swan filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.

Among the supporting cast members who have a hand in Sam's rise and fall are Lena Headey, John Cho, Ray Winstone and Richard Dreyfuss.

Zipper bows on August 28 in Us cinemas. A UK release is yet to be set. »

Star Trek Beyond Recruits The Raid, Fast And Furious 6 Star Joe Taslim

24 July 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For all of the talk of Star Trek Beyond placing the spotlight on frontierism and adventure – tenets considered to be fundamental to the franchise’s DNA – Paramount has no intention of chucking the baby out with the bath water, after it confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that The Raid and Fast and Furious 6 star Joe Taslim will join the ranks for Justin Lin’s upcoming sequel.

While details of Taslim’s role are scarce on the ground, THR notes that it is a “a key part opposite [Idris] Elba, who plays a villain.” Either way, given his action credentials, the addition of the Chinese-Indonesian actor can only bolster Beyond‘s line-up, and we’re excited to see how he fits into Justin Lin’s anticipated threequel.

Scripted by Doug Jung and Simon Pegg – who returns as fan-favorite Scotty – both writers have been vocal in the past about their desire to create »
