Coming Distractions: J.D. Salinger rocks recluse-chic in the first trailer for Rebel In The Rye

23 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The first trailer has arrived for Danny Strong’s Rebel In The Rye, with X-Men and Fury Road star Nicholas Hoult in the starring role of tortured would-be novelist J.D. Salinger. The film focuses on the earlier portions of Salinger’s career, with Kevin Spacey and Victor Garber on-hand to discourage or build him up as needed, and Sarah Paulson as his loyal literary agent, Dorothy Olding.

The tone of the film feels very recluse-chic (or at least tortured cool), as Hoult’s Salinger struggles handsomely with his work, the publishing world, and his memories of World War II. And while we can’t imagine the man himself would have been overly happy about seeing his early life transformed into one of Byronic heroism, there’s an energy to the trailer that suggests the film might offer up more than a simple series of basic biopic pleasures.

San Diego Comic-Con is now in full swing, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the weekend!

While Comic-Con rages on in southern California, the rest of the film world goes on, and inevitably some trailers get released that don’t have to do with cosplayers or Hall H panels. Such is the case with 2 trailers released today, which have us just as excited as anything Comic-Con is offering.

Firstly, Jd Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye finally has a first trailer, and it looks like it should do justice to the life of the notoriously mysterious and secretive "Catcher in the Rye" author. Nicholas Hoult stars as the young titular rebel Salinger, »

‘Rebel In The Rye’ Trailer: Holden Caulfield Gets His Bookish Moment

21 July 2017 8:23 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

As literary declarations go, “Holden Caulfield deserves an entire book” sounds like one of the safer bets, but as this trailer for IFC Films’ upcoming Rebel in the Rye suggests, the sentiment wasn’t exactly a universal one when the young, untried author J.D. Salinger began his road to a masterpiece. Rebel in the Rye, directed by Danny Strong and starring Nicholas Hoult as Salinger, chronicles The Catcher in the Rye author’s literary beginnings and the inspirations behind… »

Rebel In The Rye is the audacious story of Jd, a young man struggling to find his way in the bustling streets of 1930’s New York City. Like so many before him he aggressively pursues independence, love, sex and the stimulating experiences of life. He dreams of making it as a short-story writer, but it is only upon meeting Whit Burnett that he finds the mentor and friend he needs to help him break through his stubbornness and wayward ego, and start rendering his energy and life stories into words on the page. »

‘Rebel in the Rye’ Trailer: J.D. Salinger Biopic Is a Portrait of the Recluse as a Young Man — Watch

20 July 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Presumably hoping for better results than the documentary “Salinger,” Danny Strong’s upcoming biopic “Rebel in the Rye” will examine the early years of everyone’s favorite recluse. Nicholas Hoult stars as “The Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger, who died at age 91 in 2010 — 30 years after his final interview and 45 years after last publishing a new work. Watch the “Rebel” trailer below.

Here’s the brief synopsis from the film’s Sundance premiere: “This biopic of legendary author J.D. Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) details his relationship with socialite Oona O’Neill (Zoey Deutch), his experiences fighting in World War II, and his writing process for ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’” The trailer is heavy on Salinger’s inner turmoil, which gives life to his most famous creation: Holden Caulfield. »

Nicholas Hoult Is J.D. Salinger In New Trailer For ‘Rebel In The Rye’

20 July 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Elusive and reclusive during his lifetime, author J.D. Salinger is proving to be just the same after his death. Despite a high profile documentary (“Salinger“), and one indie drama (“Coming Through The Rye“), no one has really unlocked the enigma of the highly influential author. But it’s not without trying, as another movie is hoping to offer some insight into the man who created Holden Caulfield and the Glass family.

Charlize Theron says Furiosa/Mad Max prequel might not be far away; unsure of Fast 9 return

12 July 2017 3:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Released to an almost euphoric reception back in the summer of 2015, Mad Max: Fury Road became something of an event and has become one of the great action films of the 21st century. Talk of a sequel has been mentioned ever since, but it may be the prequel that beats it to filming.

Speaking about the film and the prospects of a Furiosa-led prequel whilst promoting her new film Atomic Blonde, star Charlize Theron has been chatting to Variety about her excitement about potentially returning to the shaven-headed character and says that it may become a reality much quicker than expected.

In an interview with Variety, Theron said:

“I’d love to. There were three scripts. They were written as backstories to Max’s character and to Furiosa’s character. But at the end of the day, this thing lives and breathes with [director] George [Miller]. I think Warner Bros. knows that. »

Olivia Munn’s Psylocke rumoured to be returning for X-Men: Dark Phoenix

8 July 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we may be able to add another returning cast member to the roster for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, with rumours circulating that Olivia Munn could be reprising the role of Betsy Braddock / Psylocke from last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

According to Omega Underground, Munn arrived in Toronto this past Friday, where X-Men: Dark Phoenix is slated to begin production this month under director Simon Kinberg. That being said, it’s also been speculated that she could be in the city for reshoots on Shane Black’s The Predator, so with so little to go on, we’ll have to file this one firmly as a rumour until we get official confirmation.

Rumoured details on Magneto’s role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

5 July 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Given that the character is absent from the original comic book storyline, it may have come as a surprise to some that Michael Fassbender’s Magneto was confirmed as featuring in the cast of next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix (although it really shouldn’t have, given that Erik is one of the mainstays of the movie series).

Well, the folks at Nerdist claim to have the inside scoop as to Magneto’s role in the latest chapter of the X-Men franchise, with the site reporting that he’ll be sporting a new “messianic” costume and may have attracted followers of his ideology. Their source suggests therefore that the Acolytes may make their big screen debut in the film, while the fictional county of Genosha is also set to feature.

If you’re unfamiliar with the comic book source material, the Acolytes are a group of mutant supervillains who subscribe to Magneto’s beliefs, »

Famke Janssen says she and the original cast of X-Men are done with the series

5 July 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

It’s going to be quite the year in 2018 for 20th Century Fox and Marvel with not one, not two, but three X-Men related films set to take over the multiplexes next year as they go full speed ahead into the comic-book world.

One of the films in the glut of those upcoming is X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the new film as part of the “new” X-Men franchise which sees producer Simon Kinberg make his directorial debut. Following the events of X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest entry will try to re-do the Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix saga that was somewhat unsuccessfully brought to the screen as part of 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand.

In that film it was Famke Janssen who played Jean Grey and the actress has been speaking about her experiences with the franchise and says that the original cast (namely her, Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, »

Famke Janssen believes she’s done playing Jean Grey in the X-Men franchise

4 July 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As 20th Century Fox gears up to retell the Dark Phoenix Saga with its First Class cast in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Famke Janssen has been talking about her time as Jean Grey in the X-Men series during an appearance at Denver Comic Con, during which she admitted that she believes she’s made her last appearance in the franchise.

“I think we’re done, but it was really great while it lasted and it lasted for a long time,” states Janssen, who made her first appearance as Jean in the original X-Men in 2000. “It’s been nothing but a pleasure working not just as Jean Grey, which was such an honor because comics were so fantastic already, but then the entire cast who I got to play with, all my fellow actors, thespians who are so talented. It was just a wonderful experience. I’m very grateful.”

X-Men: Dark Phoenix - Evan Peters To Return As Quicksilver

30 June 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Several years ago, it was revealed that both Marvel Studios and Fox would be utilizing the character Quicksilver. This was back when Marvel Studios was churning out hit after hit (I guess that hasn’t changed), and while Fox had only recently just brought out X-Men: First Class. All other recent memories for fans were  X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine — not good ones. As such, many were expecting Marvel Studios to utilize the character in a much better way.

Surprise, surprise, when X-Men: Days of Future Past came out, and Evan Peters’ interpretation of Quicksilver was one of the big scene-stealers of the film. Whereas Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron was just fast, Peters’ was Adhd in personality, and his attitude really reflected his abilities. Plus, the way Bryan Singer conveyed the speed — from Quicksilver’s perspective — created a great moment that he »

Evan Peters Returns as Quicksilver in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

30 June 2017 11:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Simon Kinberg has been confirmed to write and direct X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the cast is starting to come together. Canadian actor Lamar Johnson, best known for playing West on the hit Canadian TV series The Next Step, has signed on for the superhero follow-up, which will take place in the 1990s. It has also been confirmed that Evan Peters will return as Quicksilver, reprising his role from 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past and last year's X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Hollywood Reporter broke this casting news this week, although they couldn't confirm what character Lamar Johnson is playing. This comes just a few days after an unconfirmed report claiming actress Jessica Chastain is in talks to play the primary villain, Shi'ar Empress Lilandra, but there hasn't been any confirmation that she has officially signed on to join the cast yet. There have even been rumors that Angelina Jolie was »
