Hilary Swank Struggles with Als in First Trailer for 'You're Not You'

28 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Awareness of Als (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gherig's disease) has been raised exponentially thanks to the online charity trend of the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, with donations going to the Als Association, aiming to find a cure for the disease that attacks the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. All the talk about support to fight disease is mere coincidence as a film called You're Not You is on the way featuring Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who suddenly finds herself diagnosed by the disease, and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. It looks pretty conventional and very melodramatic, but also pretty uplifting on some level, I guess. Watch! Here's the first trailer for George C. Wolfe's You're Not You, originally from EW: You're Not You is directed by George C. Wolfe (Nights in Rodanthe) and »

This reboot of the 1981 movie of the same name (starring Brooke Shields) was also based on the same book by Scott Spencer that the first film was based on. The movie tells the story of Jade (Gabriella Wilde), a sheltered and well-off girl, and David (Alex Pettyfer), a charismatic and less well-off boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. To bring her vision for Endless Love from script to screen, director Shana Feste assembled a behind-the-scenes team led by cinematographer Andrew Dunn, production designer Clay Griffith and … Continue reading →

Endless Love Movie Review

Title: Endless Love Director: Shana Feste Starring: Gabriella Wilde, David Axelrod, Bruce Greenwood, Joely Richardson, Robert Patrick, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby. How can Franco Zeffirelli’s 1981 romantic drama ‘Endless Love’ be forgot? The movie starred Brooke Shields, Martin Hewitt, Tom Cruise (in his first motion picture role) and the film’s theme song, by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, became a number one hit, that received an Academy Award as well as Grammy and Golden Globes nominations. The remake by director Shana Feste couldn’t pay worse homage to the first film adaptation of Scott Spencer’s 1979 novel.

Alex Pettyfer on being a 'hopeless romantic' and the making of 'Endless Love'

15 February 2014 12:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conveniently, Alex Pettyfer -- the dreamy star of the hopelessly romantic "Endless Love's" -- is a hopeless romantic himself. Directed by Shana Feste ("Country Strong"), "Endless" centers on a young man (Pettyfer) who's hopelessly in love with with a wealthy girl (Gabriella Wilde). They run into conflict when her conservative father (Bruce Greenwood) adamantly opposes their coupling.  HitFix's Katie Hasty sat down with Pettyfer to discuss the new film, Valentine's Day, his favorite romantic movies and the possibilities of "Magic Mike 2." When asked about how he approached the role, Pettyfer explains, "I think that's its just being young and in love. I'm 23-turning-24 and I want to act »

Her, The Lego Movie, Bastards: this week's new films

15 February 2014 12:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Her | The Lego Movie | Bastards | The Monuments Men | Cuban Fury | 8 Minutes Idle | Love Is In The Air | Endless Love | Bette Bourne: It Goes With The Shoes

Her (15)

(Spike Jonze, 2013, Us) Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara. 126 mins

Technophilia will only get you so far, Jonze's near-future parable suggests, as it engineers a blind date between a lonely man and a sentient operating system with no concept of privacy settings – and finds both partners wanting. More successful is the marriage of sci-fi and romantic drama: the focus is more on the heart than the hardware in this soulful, often sorrowful movie.

The Lego Movie (U)

(Phil Lord, 2014, Us) Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett. 100 mins

Using pop-culture humour and star voices to overcome blatant product placement, this canny, rapid-fire comedy adventure is like a Matrix parody rendered in CGI plastic bricks.

Bastards (18)

(Claire Denis, 2013, Fra/Ger) Vincent Lindon, Chiara Mastroianni. »

Endless Love Review

14 February 2014 1:14 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The first thought that crossed my mind when I heard the title; Endless Love, was that it will be a total cliché of a romance film. After seeing the trailer a billion and five times on television, it still struck me as a film I couldn’t wait to see!

The plot of the story revolves around a very wealthy, beautiful, young girl named Jade Butterfield (Gabriella Wilde) and a handsome, charismatic, young man named David Elliot (Alex Pettyfer). After the untimely death of her older brother; Chris, Jade isolates herself in an unpleasant world with her parents Hugh (Bruce Greenwood) and Anne (Joely Richardson). Having been fostering a crush on Jade since sophomore year of high school, David and Jade finally connect after graduation; opening up a whole new world full of difficult decisions and challenges.

Following in the footsteps of other romances like Titanic, The Notebook, and even Romeo and Juliet, »

Happy Valentine.s Day! Watch .Winter.s Tale. and .Endless Love. (2014) Romantic Movie Reviews

14 February 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Two romantic films just in time for Valentine.s! First we have .Winter.s Tale. starring Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay as a couple whose love transcends time. The movie also stars Russell Crowe, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint, and a cameo by Will Smith as.gasp.Lucifer! This is from writer-director Akiva Goldsman based on the 1983 book by Mark Helprin.

We also have .Endless Love,. the remake of the ultra-schmaltzy 1981 original of the same name starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt from director Franco Zeffirelli. The 2014 remake is pretty much the same Romeo and Juliet rehash but this one stars Alex Pettyfer (.Magic Mike.) and Gabrielle Wilde (.The Three Musketeers.) with Shana Feste at the helm.

Which one is my pick of the week? Take a look:

‘Endless Love’ Review: Too Much of the Former, Not Enough of the Latter

14 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

About halfway through Endless Love I made the unnerving revelation that this is, in fact, not a movie about young love, first love, or any kind of love. This is a vile and manipulative film about an abnormally malicious father and his unhealthy relationship with his daughter. That it is being sold as the next The Notebook is unsurprising, as director/co-writer Shana Feste’s trite and sappy sophomore effort contains the necessary components to dupe unassuming customers. The two attractive and compatible teenagers who fall for each other at first sight, Jade Butterfield (Gabriella Wilde) and David Elliot (Alex Pettyfer); the disapproving father (Bruce Greenwood) and the pragmatic mother (Joely Richardson); the rebellious brother (Rhys Wakefield) who constantly disappoints the patriarch of the family; and the limbo-like summer between high school graduation and college where one’s future appears to be infinite. All the necessary pieces for a predictable, but »

Endless Love (2014) – The Review

14 February 2014 9:34 AM, PST | | See recent news »

© 2014 Universal Studios. All Rights Reserved.

It states in the credits that Endless Love is based on a novel by Scott Spencer. Some may even remember Brooke Shields in a film in the 80’s also by the same name featuring the iconic hit song by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. Though I doubt that the majority of the people who will see this new version of the film will know that this story of young love is taken from those sources. Even those who are familiar with them will have a hard time acknowledging that this is the same story. Outside of the names of the characters and the title, Shana Feste’s 2014 film ignores many of the darker themes from the source material in-lieu of a more accessible romance for today’s younger audience.

David (Alex Pettyfer) has always longed-for Jade Butterfield (Gabrielle Wilde) from afar during high-school. Now that »

Film Review: ‘Endless Love’ Remake Feels Like Endless Slog

14 February 2014 7:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – It’s Valentine’s Day movie remake weekend! Hot on the heels of the “About Last Night” redo, comes our love, our “Endless Love” – and it’s interesting that the film doesn’t use that song at all, not even for a hip-hop version. That’s just one of many problems in a remake that doesn’t generate any heat or dramatic conflict, unless you wonder if a rich woman will ever write another best seller.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

It’s not all that bad, if you’re looking for a bland way to spend 103 minutes in an early relationship Valentine’s Day date – during the multiple down times in the film you can gaze at each other – but it will have also the potential to lull you into slumber, so don’t eat a big meal before going. There is no relationship to the first film at all, the production »

Endless Love Review

13 February 2014 4:10 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Shana Feste.

Starring: Alex Pettyfer, Gabriella Wilde, Bruce Greenwood, Joely Richardson, Robert Patrick, Rhys Wakefield, Dayo Okeniyi, Emma Rigby, Anna Enger.

Running Time: 103 minutes.

Certificate: 12A.

Synopsis: The story of a privileged girl (Gabriella Wilde) and a charismatic boy (Alex Pettyfer) whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart.

A solemn voiceover describing how the love found one summer changes lives forever is how we are introduced to this woeful coming-of-age tale of innocence lost and love gained. If you’re thinking the only way is up from there then you have seriously misjudged Endless Love, as every cliché in the book is thrown at the audience during the course of this derivative and tiresome movie.

We start with a family coping with the death of the middle son, an overprotective and grieving father (Bruce Greenwood) who hasn’t »

Box office preview: 'RoboCop' and the love stories are no match for 'The Lego Movie'

13 February 2014 2:53 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

It’s a 1980s showdown at the box office this icy Presidents Day weekend. Remakes of RoboCop, About Last Night, and Endless Love all open wide (even Winter’s Tale is based on a 1983 book!), but The Lego Movie will undoubtedly reign supreme in its second weekend in theaters.

Here’s how things might play out:

1. The Lego Movie — $50 million

After Lego’s stunning $69.1 million debut, the tiny interconnecting figurines are only going to benefit from growing word-of-mouth in its second weekend in theaters. It could bring in upwards of $50 million across the four-day weekend. As of Feb. 12, Warner Bros. »
