‘Furious 7’ Speeds Past ‘Age of Adaline’ For 4th Straight Win at Box Office

20 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Furious 7,” Universal’s blockbuster hot car sequel, capped its record-breaking run with a fourth consecutive triumph at the box office this weekend. And in the process, it moved past “Frozen” to become the fifth-highest grossing film globally ever. Lionsgate’s “The Age of Adaline,” a fantasy romance starring Blake Lively and “Game of Thrones” actor Michiel Huisman, opened with $13.3 million and on Friday even finished on top, ahead of “Furious 7.” But the action sequel had a big Saturday that powered an $18.3 million weekend and made it the first movie since 2012’s “The Hunger Games” to stay on top of the box office. »

Orphan Black, Ep. 3.02, “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis” takes a step in the right direction

Orphan Black, Season 3, Episode 2, “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis”

Written by Aubrey Nealon

Directed by John Fawcett

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on BBC America

After the underwhelming season three premiere, “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis” is encouraging, moving what appears to be the crucial arc for the season, the introduction of Project Castor and the CastorClones, towards more interesting territory. While the two main CastorClones featured this week remain Bad Moustache Clone and Fauxhawk Clone, they’re given names and briefly, motivation. Seth (Bmc) is sick, a short circuit in his brain causing searing pain and Rudy (Fc) is protective of his brother, certain Seth will be put down if they return to base as they’ve been ordered. It’s not much, but this is far more characterization than Ari Millen has been given to work with either last season or in the season three premiere (aside from Creepy Cult Clone, »

New Age Of Adaline Movie Received Mixed Reviews From Major Critics

25 April 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Lionsgate released their new romantic/drama film, "The Age of Adaline," into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews have been turned in from the top, major movie critics. It turns out that about half of them liked it, which is better than nothing I guess. It got a mixed 51 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew and Michiel Huisman. We've supplied blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a decent 75 grade, stating: " Ford's voice — always deep, lowered an octave by age and one more by William's longing — is even more powerful. This is Ford's best performance since "The Fugitive," maybe since "Witness." Kyle Smith over at the New York Post, gave it a 75 grade ,saying: " The film is as tender and endearing as a lamb, »

Michiel Huisman Talks Age Of Adaline, Game Of Thrones, and More

24 April 2015 8:38 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

‘Furious 7′ Racing to Fourth-Straight Win at U.S. Box Office

24 April 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Furious 7″ still has plenty of gas in the tank, as the tentpole’s poised to win its fourth straight weekend at the U.S. box office with about $16 million, according to early Friday estimates.

Lionsgate’s launch of “The Age of Adaline” and Sony’s second weekend of “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2″ will battle for second place in the $13 million to $14 million range.

If “Furious 7″ can maintain its lead this weekend, it will become the first film to launch with four consecutive victories at the U.S. box office since Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games” in 2012. Marvel/Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” had four straight wins last summer domestically but in its fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh weekends in release.

Furious 7,”  starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker, crossed the $300 million mark in domestic grosses on Wednesday and became the 50th title to hit that milestone. »

Film Review: Intoxicating ‘The Age of Adaline’ a Featherweight Fantasy

24 April 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Age of Adaline” is a beautifully shot featherweight fantasy that remains charming as long as you don’t think about it too hard, or at all.  At one point one character asks another why he loves Adaline, and he replies “because she makes no sense.”  The same could be said for this movie.

It doesn’t make a lick of sense but I enjoyed it and it’s intoxicating in its own way.  It goes down easy like a good “Manhattan” or some other vintage cordial of the era.  

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Blake Lively stars as Adaline, a pretty young woman who has a Zelig-like quality of being involved in just about every major event to happen in San Francisco in the first half of the 20th century.  She’s born just after the great earthquake after all, on new years eve and gets herself into the movies when Thomas Edison »

'The Age of Adaline' (2015) Movie Review

23 April 2015 10:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Eternal life and eternal youth are two things the world, but particularly America, are infatuated with. People swallow handfuls of vitamins, eat the greenest of foods, and do a tremendous amount of exercise in order to stay in top physical condition to live a longer life. Medical advancements are such that lifespans have grown by decades. In terms of youth, people lather their faces with creams and lotions or just surgically alter their faces in order to look like they are still in "the prime of their life." Of course, these things end up being frivolous. Everyone ends up the same way. Dead. What if someone did have eternal life and was eternally young thoughc How would this person be able to justify it to anyone, form relationships with people, or just not be seen as a freakc The Age of Adaline looks to wrestle with these potentially very interesting questions. »

Lee Toland Krieger Talks Deleted Scenes, Harrison Ford’s Voice & Schmaltz in The Age Of Adaline

23 April 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Age of Adaline walks the fine line between affecting and schmaltz. It never tips over into eye-rolling melodrama – and that can all be accredited to filmmaker Lee Toland Krieger (The Vicious Kind, Celeste and Jesse are Forever). There’s a determined quality to the shot selection, an almost arm’s length remove to the emotional beats of the picture that lends itself to combating its more saccharine impulses. Adaline, for the most part, is a completely internal film. The film’s central conflict lies on the decision of whether immortal Adaline (Blake Lively) should allow herself to fall in love with a mortal (Michiel Huisman), knowing full-well what the ravages of time will do to him and not to her. Through a well-deployed omniscient narrator and cleverly intermingled flashbacks, Krieger is able to visually & verbally explain the struggles that occur within his lead’s mind. It’s a nifty »

The Age Of Adaline Review

23 April 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Age of Adaline is based on the improbable premise that a casting director would expect Blake Lively to play a character wise beyond her years. With a limited film resume mostly spent playing arm candy in dude-driven action flicks, pitching The Age of Adaline makes Lively’s starring dramatic presence a tougher sell than the film’s own romantic fable story. But The Age of Adaline is a smarter beast than its gooey exterior lets on, and its precise use of performers, genre tropes, and aesthetics makes it a pleasantly surprising blend of old and new school fairy tale.

Making no bones about its melodramatic intentions, The Age of Adaline operates with restrained but omnipresent emotionality at all times. For a film that’s really more of a character study than a sweeping epic, The Age of Adaline’s biggest, constant risk is assuming the audience will go along with its somberly operatic tone, »

The Age Of Adaline – The review

23 April 2015 4:12 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

What would you do if life stood still? Now I’m not talking about the world continually frozen, like a projector stuck on one frame of film (maybe a better modern analogy would be a DVD unable to move past an image, perhaps with that annoying “buffer circle” spinning). I mean what if you, yourself, never changed and remained your current age forever. No wrinkles, no grey hairs, and no internal breakdowns (the plumbing works fine, muscles and joints in great shape). That’s been one of the major benefits of vampirism (like the eternal ten-year old Kirsten Dunst in Interview With The Vampire), a theme of fairy tales (Sleeping Beauty), and science fiction (The Man Who Cheated Death, the Cocoon flicks). Now comes a film that plays with that notion in a more modern, realistic fashion. Call it a modern romantic fable, or the ultimate May-December love story. Or »

Review Roundup: Blake Lively, Harrison Ford Impress in 'The Age of Adaline,' but the Premise is Pure 'Hokum'

23 April 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As Serena van der Woodsen, the prep-school princess of "Gossip Girl," Blake Lively mastered a certain phlegmatic poise. Even when the bitchy backbiting of the CW's teen soap spiraled out of control, the actress kept her willowy cool, an air of mystery that serves her well in director Lee Toland Krieger's otherwise ludicrous romance, "The Age of Adaline." Lively stars as Adaline Bowman, a woman whose body is frozen at the age of 29 even as her soul, and the world around her, witness eight decades' worth of changes. Though long reticent to develop close relationships, lest her secret be revealed, Adaline finds herself drawn to Ellis Jones ("Game of Thrones" hunk Michiel Huisman), a wealthy philanthropist with old-fashioned tastes, and the film, full of sumptuous fashions that would make "Gossip Girl" green with envy, plumbs the dynamic of Adaline's strange situation. Lively, who outside of "Gossip Girl" has maintained a relatively. »

The Age of Adaline Is Twenty Nine for Much of the Film

23 April 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) is 29 years old, and she has been for the past 79 years. An auto accident in 1937 involving snowflakes, cold water and lightning alters her riboflavin (?) levels in a way that won’t be truly understood until 2035, and from that point on her body becomes immune to the ravages of time and aging. We meet her in modern day San Francisco as she’s approaching a scheduled move to Oregon — she moves every decade or so and uses false names and forged identities to prevent anyone from discovering her secret — and it becomes clear that aside from her daughter (Ellen Burstyn, quickly cornering the market on characters who appear older than their parent), her dog and a blind friend she lives a life of self-imposed emotional isolation. That protective shell is shaken when she meets and falls in love with a young philanthropist named Ellis (Michiel Huisman) who doggedly pursues, harasses »
