First 'The 5th Wave' Trailer Promises the Worst Alien Invasion Is Yet to Come

1 hour ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The young adult section of bookstores continues to be one of the most promising places from which to pluck future film franchises. The latest series hoping to join hits like The Maze Runner, The Hunger Games, Insurgent, and Twilight is The 5th Wave, and this week we got our first look at the big screen version. Adapted from Rick Yancey's novel of the same name, The 5th Wave stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a young woman on the run in a future where mankind has been ravaged by an escalating series of alien invasions. As you can probably guess from the title, the story picks up right before the fifth, and presumably deadliest, wave of the invasion is set to begin. Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maria Bello, Maggie Siff, and Ron Livingston also star. Check...

Chloe Grace Moretz Faces An Alien Invasion In The 5th Wave Trailer

31 August 2015 2:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since squaring off against a fleet of souped-up vigilantes in Kick-Ass and wreaking revenge on the popular crowd in Carrie, Chloe Grace Moretz has established herself as a force to be reckoned with. Coupled with a recent supporting turn in Clouds Of Sils Maria that brought out the manipulative savage within, and it’s safe to say that she’s at her best when playing characters who rage against the system. For her next outing, young adult adaptation The 5th Wave, she’s up against her biggest opponent yet — aliens.

Based on Rick Yancey’s novel, the film casts Moretz as Cassie, a 16-year old who grows up during a time when Earth is under constant attack from an unknown race of marauding aliens. Each cycle of which is called a ‘wave.’ The first wiped out their power, the second brought down the fury of mother nature’s wrath, the »

First Trailer for Sci-Fi Adaptation 'The 5th Wave' with Chloe Moretz

31 August 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We're fighting simultaneous attacks in the last metropolitan areas." Sony has finally debuted an actual trailer for the sci-fi fan film The 5th Wave, which has been marketed and designed from the start for the fans of the book series. The 5th Wave is the first movie adapted from The 5th Wave series of science fiction books, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as a girl in the middle of an alien invasion trying to find her missing brother. The cast includes Liev Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Nick Robinson, Maggie Siff, Maria Bello and Ron Livingston. They're trying to push this as the next big sci-fi alien invasion thriller, but it looks like a cheesy mash-up of Independence Day and Falling Skies, or something like that. Not really my kind of sci-fi. You? Here's the first official trailer for J Blakeson's The 5th Wave, straight from Sony's YouTube: In the new film The 5th Wave, »

Digging For Fire Review

22 August 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s nice to see that as Joe Swanberg is able to attract more robust, big-name casts, his no-frills style of filmmaking still remains focused. Presumably, that’s what drives these actors to collaborate with Swanberg. He gives them a chance to create drama, tension, romance, and – most importantly – a sense of realism, through nothing but sharpened character work. Swanberg forces actors to bring their A-game, which translates into heartfelt and sincere performances yet again in his latest film, Digging For Fire - an exploration of yet another conflicting crossroads that most of us will eventually come to, told with the understanding and beauty of life’s purity.

Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt star as a couple in need of some relief, so they seek sanctuary at a desolate hideaway owned by one of Lee’s (DeWitt) clients. Tim (Johnson) should be spending the weekend finalizing taxes, but when Lee »

The End Of The Tour – The Review

20 August 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Film makers wishing to explore the life of celebrated individuals can often be thwarted by the lack of material, particularly when said individual is a most private person who did not make themselves easily accessible. And often those closest, be they family or long-time friends “circle the wagons” around this potential cinematic subject. This may have been a big problem for the people behind this new film, a look at the all-too brief life of celebrated, but very private, writer David Foster Wallace. Fortunately access was granted via David Lipsky and his best seller “Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself”. But as you’ll see, this film is not the standard movie bio, not a “rags to riches”, birth to stardom tale. It’s the story of the friendship between the two Daves, struck up in just a few short days, specifically at The End Of The Tour. »

Vacation review: National Lampoon's Hangovered reboot is funny even if Chevy Chase isn't

19 August 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Directors: John Francis Daley, Jonathan M Goldstein; Screenwriters: John Francis Daley, Jonathan M Goldstein; Starring: Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Chevy Chase; Running time: 99 mins; Certificate: 15

As entirely unnecessary reboots go, Vacation isn't half bad. When held up to the ridiculously harsh ratings coming out of the Us for this Chevy Chase vehicle Mot, it seems positively good. But then it's probably worth remembering that the 1983 original wasn't overly well received either. Fart gags, it seems, are never in fashion.

And as you'd expect from a film starring Ed Helms, it's been Hangovered for a new generation by writer/directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldstein - one in-gag has his kids slyly, but quite understandably, saying they've never heard of the original - with the shit and puke dial turned right up. Yet there are still enough genuine laughs throughout to make it a worthwhile »

Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To The End Of The Tour In St. Louis

17 August 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Opening in St. Louis on Friday, August 21st, Wamg is giving away Run-Of-Engagement passes to The End Of The Tour.

The End Of The Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter and novelist David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, “Infinite Jest.”

As the days go on, a tenuous yet intense relationship seems to develop between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave around each other, sharing laughs and also possibly revealing hidden frailties – but it’s never clear how truthful they are being with each other. Ironically, the interview was never published, and five days of audiotapes were packed away in Lipsky’s closet. The two men did not meet again.

The film is based on Lipsky’s critically acclaimed memoir “Although Of »

Interview: Jason Segel on the Origins of ‘The End of the Tour’

5 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Jason Segel is a real mensch. The tall and angular actor is open, active and caring about his career, and he fulfills another part of his performance evolution in director James Ponsoldt’s “The End of the Tour.” Segel portrays author David Foster Wallace, when he appeared on behalf of his 1996 novel “Infinite Jest.”

The End of the Tour” focuses on four days in the life of Wallace, as a Rolling Stone magazine reporter named David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) follows Wallace around as he makes one last stop on his book tour for “Infinite Jest.” It’s basically about the two men as they interact, jousting upon the issues in the book, Wallace’s choices in his modest lifestyle and how some encounters on the tour in Minnesota add another dynamic to their relationship.

Exclusive: Jesse Eisenberg And Jason Segel Meet In Clip From 'The End Of The Tour'

"It’s the big question of a movie of this size —will people care if they don’t care about David Foster Wallace?" Jason Segel recently told RogerEbert.com. "It’s not a cradle to grave biopic. It’s just these four days. What it really rests on is creating this character tension between two guys. Between [screenwriter] Donald Margulies curating the actual interview into a narrative and [director] James Ponsoldt creating tension out of active listening. It’s really hard to do."

Review: 'Vacation' runs out of gas long before it reaches its destination

28 July 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

1983's "National Lampoon's Vacation" is a film I have an enormous fondness for, and I have no doubt part of why I feel that way is because of when I saw the film. After all, I was 13 when it came out, and the script by John Hughes felt like it was shockingly transgressive at the time. A few weeks back, I saw the film again for the first time in a while, and while I smiled at most of the familiar scenes and lines, I also saw the film with fresh eyes, and I was struck by the fact that, overall, it's a little shabby. I think Harold Ramis gets great performances out of his entire cast, but as actual filmmaking? It's a step forward from the "held together with bitter tears and cocaine" aesthetic of "Caddyshack," but not a giant step. As an overall series, this is about as »

Film Review: Tartan Prancer – Yes, a Fictional Albanian Car – Steals the Otherwise Borrowed Show in ‘Vacation’

28 July 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Retreads from classics are often as weary as having to write that they are almost never as good as the original. And here we go again with the Ed Helms-led “Vacation,” which fails to capitalize on the beloved Chevy Chase film “National Lampoon’s Vacation” from 1983.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Lacking the soul and whimsy of the original, this modern-day take on the Harold Ramis and John Hughes classic attempts to recreate the charm with actors who know how to read the lines but don’t embody the characters. And they’re forced to speak within a lazily written story that doesn’t add enough to justify coming back.

The decision by Ed Helms to take his family to Walley World – just like his father (Chevy Chase) did with his family – feels forced for the film to have a reason for being. It feels like it went down like this: “Hey, »

'Vacation' (2015) Movie Review

28 July 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I really don't want to waste anymore time on this than is necessary. Vacation, written and directed by Horrible Bosses and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, is a rebooted sequel to the original 1983 comedy National Lampoon's Vacation. It uses self-awareness as a defense mechanism and feces as its punchlines, which is to say it knows it's swimming in gutter humor and doing a poor job at it, but hopes you'll excuse it out of nostalgia for the original and compassion for what it feels it's up against. Hmmmm, best of luck to those that don't even know the original exists. How do you follow up a franchise of films that still stand tall more than 30 years after the original hit theatersc Well, having the family at the center of it all swim in sewage and attempt to clean out a bathtub that looks »

The Admiration Game: Ponsoldt’s Moving Homage to Artist and Artistry

Following the critical successes of 2012’s Smashed and 2013’s The Spectacular Now, director James Ponsoldt recreates a defining moment in time between acclaimed author David Foster Wallace and Rolling Stones’ journalist David Lipsky with The End of the Tour, based on the memoirs of the latter. Beginning with Lipsky learning of Wallace’s suicide in 2008, we backtrack twelve years to 1996, after the publication of the author’s famed novel, Infinite Jest, which inspired the journalist, a novelist himself, to vie for an interview with the enigmatic personality. Framed as an unforgettable memory, Ponsoldt captures what feels like a sincere elegy from Lipsky to Wallace, a road trip that lasted five days and ran a gamut of intellectual, emotional, and philosophical highs and lows pertaining to the meaning of fame, success, and what it means to be an artist. Carried magnificently by its two leads, »
