YouTuber Launches Viral Stunt By Repeatedly Eating Photos Of The Actor Jason Segel

23 February 2017 1:52 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In today’s edition of inexplicably bizarre content drumming up massive views on YouTube, a Toronto-based creator who goes by the name Dog Sh-t (and whose real name is Noah Maloney) has set into a motion a stunt that’s turning eyeballs in a major way.

As of last week, Maloney has been eating photographs of the actor Jason Segel every single day -- and will continue to do so until Segel agrees to eat a photograph of him (specifically this photo that Maloney has linked in the description box of every video thus far).

It’s (not) the End of the World in the new trailer Robert Redford’s afterlife-thriller The Discovery

23 February 2017 3:46 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Charlie McDowell returned to Sundance this year to debut his latest mind-bending exploration of the human condition. Three years ago his wondrous study of the complexities of a couple’s relationships, The One I Love, gave audiences a chance to see what the writer/director was all about. This year his latest film, The Discovery, played to captivated audiences at the festival.

As part of their Park City plunder Netflix snapped up the rights to McDowell’s latest, and we should be seeing it hit our small screens in a month’s time. Something of a spiritual sequel to Zal Batmanglij’s The Oa, the set up is proper Black Mirror stuff. A scientist proves the existence of an afterlife, and we join the story one year after the revelation. Suicide rates are rocketing, the nature of existence challenged and our tight hold on life loosened to disconcerting degree. »

Coming Distractions: New trailer for Netflix’s The Discovery fleshes out its horrifying world

22 February 2017 6:14 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The first teaser for Netflix’s The Discovery was designed to be unnerving and ominous, with Jason Segel and Rooney Mara walking through what looked like a romantic drama right up until the soundtrack started to warp and the spooky imagery started to creep in. The movie comes from Charlie McDowell and Justin Lader, and it stars Robert Redford as a scientist who has discovered irrefutable proof of an afterlife, prompting a wave of suicides all over the world. This new trailer presents that world with a more operatic tone, suggesting that this isn’t a small horror story about a handful of people but a grand horror story about the whole human race. The A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd said The Discovery was an “ambitious, convoluted genre tightrope act” that kept him “thoroughly engrossed” when he saw it at Sundance, and you’ll be able to see »

The Afterlife Is Real in Trailer for Robert Redford, Jason Segel and Rooney Mara’s ‘The Discovery’

22 February 2017 4:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix dropped its first full trailer for “The Discovery,” the sci-fi film starring Robert Redford, Jason Segel, and Rooney Mara that offers a new take on the meaning of life and death.

Redford plays Dr. Harper, a scientist whose verification of the afterlife, or a “new plane of existence” changes the way people think about death. In fact, it seems to make people want it, sparking more than a million suicides around the world by those attempting to “get there.”

“How can you keep a discovery so vital to our existence a secret?” Redford’s Harper says in the trailer after Mary Steenburgen’s journalist character asks a question about his personal responsibility.

"Don't you think your discovery was just too dangerous to share with the world?" Netflix has revealed a full trailer for Charlie McDowell's new sci-fi film The Discovery, to follow-up the first teaser launched just before Sundance. This outstanding little indie feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and it comes highly recommended for sci-fi fans.

The two connect and look back over their lives while almost everyone else is considering killing themselves to "get there". I wrote in my review from Sundance that this film is thought-provoking "cinema for intelligent minds."

The Afterlife Beckons In Morbid New Trailer For Netflix Drama The Discovery

22 February 2017 8:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Heaven, paradise, nirvana, Valhalla – whatever moniker you ascribe to the afterlife, the concept of life after death is as powerful as it is frightening. Now suppose that its existence is proven, right here on Earth in the present day, and you’ll have an inkling of The Discovery, Netflix and Charlie McDowell’s morbid new drama that centers on an unusual love story that blooms between  Rooney Mara and Jason Segel.

In the fallout of Dr. Thomas Harbor’s (Robert Redford) landmark discovery – he prefers to call it a “new plane of existence,” rather than the afterlife – the world is crippled by mass suicide, as tens of thousands of people end their lives with reckless abandon in an attempt to enter this alleged new reality. Despite the temptation, Mara and Segel’s wounded protagonists resist, and instead work to make amends within their own lives before worrying about the next ones. »

Rooney Mara and Jason Segel Encounter the Afterlife in New Trailer for ‘The Discovery’

22 February 2017 7:18 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The One I Love director Charlie McDowell brought his next emotionally grounded sci-fi film, The Discovery, to Sundance Film Festival and unlike many other premieres there, one will be able to see it soon. Ahead of a release in about five weeks on Netflix, they’ve now released a new trailer which unpacks more of the story. Starring Jason Segel, Rooney Mara, Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons, and Riley Keough, the film follows a world where the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified.

I said in my review, “If you knew what was to come after death, would you live your life differently? Or would you want to live at all? These are but a few life-altering questions at the center of The Discovery, Charlie McDowell’s follow-up to The One I Love, another film which used the backdrop of a science-fiction premise as a playground for exploring universal emotional quandaries. »

‘The Discovery’ Is Dangerous In New Trailer For Sci-Fi Starring Rooney Mara & Jason Segel

While “The Discovery” landed at the Sundance Film Festival last month boasting star power — Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Robert Redford — and a nifty premise, reaction was mixed on the sci-fi movie. But we’ll watch anything with that cast, and we can’t help but continue to be intrigued by the film, which now has a new trailer.

Charlie McDowell (“The One I Love“) directs this story about a doctor who discovers proof of the afterlife, and the deadly consequences that follow.

Don’t invite Mary Steenburgen to your home if you’re not ready to answer the hard-hitting questions. In the latest trailer for “The Discovery,” Charlie McDowell’s provocative sci-fi exploration of the the nature of reality and mortality, Doctor Thomas Harber (Robert Redford) learns that lesson the hard way.

An earlier trailer framed the film as a twisted love story between Rooney Mara and Jason Segel, but the follow-up tells a far more fractured story. Doctor Harbor’s research led him to prove the existence of the afterlife; as a result, people are committing suicide in the millions. Buoyed by his interview with Steenburgen, who plays the reporter interviewing the Doctor for the first time since he made his discovery, the trailer cuts to far more sinister snippets underscored by a tense classical medley. »

A YouTube star plans to eat a photo of Jason Segel every day until the actor agrees to return the favor. Yesterday marked the first day of a challenge posed by YouTube user Dog S—, who uploaded a 4:21 video to the platform in which he chomps at a headshot of the “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” actor. He doesn’t really say anything but occasionally stops to drinks some water. Then, at the end, he says “Hey Jason” while staring into the camera, before the hashtag #Eatmyfacesegel appears.

The Weekend Warrior 2/17/17: Fist Fight, The Great Wall, A Cure for Wellness

15 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million.  Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday.

Riley Keough has been on the kind of streak few young actresses get to experience. Steven Soderbergh knew talent when he saw it, casting the actress in “Magic Mike,” “The Girlfriend Experience,” and his upcoming “Logan Lucky.” Overall, Keough has seen a flurry of doors open, landing roles in George Miller‘s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” with a forthcoming slate of movies that includes: “The Discovery” with Rooney Mara and Jason Segel; Trey Edward Shults‘ “It Comes At Night“; and David Robert Mitchell‘s “Under The Silver Lake.” And now she’s adding another auteur to her CV.
