Film Review: ‘Self/less’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A brand new you that just might be the old someone else is the quandary at the center of “Self/less,” an initially intriguing parable about man’s lust for immortality that quickly devolves into a substandard shoot-‘em-up designed to rebrand star Ryan Reynolds as a brawny action hero in the Jason Statham mold. But even the resourceful, likable Reynolds is at a loss to elevate this rather dreary piece of would-be escapism, which calls out for the wry, pulpy touch of a John Carpenter (or his acolyte David Twohy) and instead gets the strained self-seriousness of director Tarsem Singh. July 10 release from Universal/Focus’ relaunched genre label Gramercy Pictures will have its work cut out for it against the big guns of summer.

Written by Spanish brothers Alex and David Pastor (whose little-seen 2009 “Carriers” was one of the better zombie/virus thrillers of recent vintage), “Self/less” cribs »

Self/Less review: clue/less as soul of Ben Kingsley is put in Ryan Reynolds's body

1 hour ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Some potentially interesting ideas get totally lost as Tarsem Singh’s fantasy drama descends into a series of dull chase scenes and bananas conceits

“You can’t take it with you,” suggested George S Kaufman and Moss Hart (with a little help from the First Epistle to Timothy). But what if you could stash it some place? Self/Less, which begins as an updated Astounding Science Fiction story before devolving into warmed-over, third-tier action, suggests a near future where the super rich might extend their years by dumping their consciousness into blank vessels prior to death. The procedure doesn’t exactly go as advertised.

Ben Kingsley is amusing and, importantly, just a little bit sympathetic as Trump-esque Manhattan real estate mogul Damian Hale, who can destroy the careers of upstarts who dare not kiss the ring with the mere snap of a finger. But he can’t kick the metastasised cancer in his body. »

Self/Less: Four Clips & Behind-the-Scenes Footage Reveal the Side Effects of Death

3 July 2015 9:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has released four new clips and five minutes of behind-the-scenes footage for Tarsem Singh‘s latest mind-bender, Self/less, a psychological sci-fi thriller about a dying man (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” While most of the clips are noticeably lacking in Tarsem's distinct visual opulence, one of them finally reveals a glimpse at that aesthetic panache Tarsem is known for - but seriously, just a glimpse. The glinting gold pillow atop a sterile medical bed both feels like signature Tarsem and fits with the idea that the immortality procedure and "best of the human experience" is exclusively available to those in the highest echelons of society. These clips are also a great reminder that Reynolds is an excellent actor when »

Video: Fish Learns to Fetch Like a Puppy from Self/Less Movie

2 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Have you seen the trending video of the fish playing fetch that was all over the internet last week? The viral video was courtesy of the new sci-fi thriller Self/Less, from Gramercy Pictures.

The movie, which releases on Friday, July 10th, features a fictional science process known as “shedding” which enables consciousness transfer from one person to the body of another, unlocking the key to human immortality.

The studio created a series of Youtube videos showcasing the results of a shedding experiment on animals by the fictional company Phoenix Biogenic, founded by Dr. Albright who’s brilliance created the shedding procedure. Although, shedding is currently a science fiction, it can soon become reality.

The first video, “fish play fetch like a dog”, launched on 6/22. It was viewed by more than 1.4Mm people across social media channels in eight days and was picked up by more than 75 viral sites.

Here's the Theme of 'Downton Abbey' Season 6 in One Word

26 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The end is nigh, fellow "Downton Abbey" guests. After Season 6, there will be no more arch comments from Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess to tide us over, and no more opportunities to seethe as smug Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) takes another shot at poor Lady Edith (Laura Carmichael). (#TeamEdith4Life. Not sorry.) Season 6 premieres in the U.K. first, then in January on PBS in the U.S. Creator/writer Julian Fellowes talked to TheWrap about the new season, explaining why they decided to end the show in the 1920s instead of jumping into the 1930s, and discussing the major theme of the final season.

Here's part of that Q&A:

What were your priorities going into this past season?

Well, Season 4 was about Mary's redemption. That series was really about personal choice, about watching Mary decide to come alive again after her husband's death. Series 5, you're right, was much »

Self/Less: New Featurette Explores the Side Effects of Immortality

24 June 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Focus Features has released a new featurette and clip for Tarsem Singh‘s latest, Self/less, a psychological science fiction thriller about a man dying from cancer (Ben Kingsley) who decides to transfer his consciousness into the body of a healthy, younger man (Ryan Reynolds). The procedure works, but he soon comes to realize that “immortality has some side effects.” I'm intrigued by Self/less. The ramifications a man faces when he tries to beat god always makes for solid ground to build a riveting science fiction premise on, and Tarsem is a compelling director with an eccentric track record, so I'm always intrigued to see what he'll do next. Stylistically, Self/less looks quite restrained for the director, who can occasionally get so immersed in his visuals that narrative falls by the wayside. When he's at his best we get The Fall, at his worst, Immortals (which I actually »

Self/Less Clip: Matthew Goode Offers Ben Kingsley the Best of the Human Experience

12 June 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

What if you got the chance to live forever? Would you take it? That's the opportunity Matthew Goode's character offers Ben Kingsley in Tarsem Singh's latest, Self/Less. Kingsley plays a wealthy man dying of cancer who agrees to have his consciousness transferred into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). All is well until Kingsley's character starts to uncover the truth about his new body and Phoenix Biogenic, the company behind the operation that'll do anything to keep the details of the procedure top secret. Gramercy Pictures just shared the first clip from the film and while it's probably a smart move to begin by conveying key information about the procedure, I do kind of wish the first clip showed off more of Singh's signature style and mind-blowing visuals. You can check out the first Self/Less clip for yourself below. The film also stars Natalie Martinez, »

Many Emmy Supporting Actor Contenders Compete Against Themselves

9 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Matthew Goode spent season six of CBS’ “The Good Wife” playing Finn Polmar, a charming potential love interest for the show’s leading lady, Julianna Margulies. In March, he appeared in a guest spot on PBS’ “Downton Abbey” as Henry Talbot, a charming potential love interest for the show’s leading lady, Michelle Dockery. The roles are actually very different, set almost 100 years apart, but the series both have a fantastic ensemble of actors.

“The sheer unadulterated delight of being present in two such beloved shows is the wealth of experienced and delightful actors I have had the chance to work with on both sides of the Atlantic,” says Goode. “One day it’s Christine Baranski and Nathan Lane, the next it’s Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilton. Lucky? Without question!”
