Sundance Film Review: ‘Z for Zachariah’

24 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Save for a pesky snake problem, the Garden of Eden had a lot going for it, including lush greenery, a farm-to-table diet and a perfect male-female ratio. The post-apocalyptic Eden at the center of Craig Zobel’s “Z for Zachariah” offers many of the same amenities, only here there are two Adams vying for the attention of one Eve, with predictably fraught consequences. It’s a scenario with obvious appeal for Zobel, whose love-it-or-hate-it 2012 “Compliance” subjected a gaggle of characters to a psychological crucible modeled on Stanley Milgram’s controversial obedience experiments. This time, the stakes are even higher — the repopulation of the planet — but the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of “The Hunger Games,” “Divergent,” et al.

Like those movies, “Z For Zachariah” also sports a literary pedigree: a posthumously published 1974 novel by Newbery-winning Ya author Robert C. »

'Insurgent', 'Sea of Trees', 'Game of Thrones' IMAX & Shyamalan's 'The Visit' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

20 January 2015 3:02 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today's MPAA ratings bulletin brings us a slew of PG-13 ratings beginning with an expected PG-13 for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, which apparently includes "some sensuality"... Oooh la la... We also have a PG-13 for Gus Van Sant's new movie The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts as well as one more PG-13 for M. Night Shyamalan's latest low budget feature The Visit. We also get an official rating for the forthcoming IMAX release of "Game of Thrones", which will begin playing in upwards of 200 IMAX theaters at 10 Pm on January 29, featuring two episodes from season four of "Game of Thrones" followed by the worldwide debut of the series' season five sneak-peek preview created exclusively for IMAX. Might be fun for the die-hard fans, though not ending it with the first episode of the fifth season seems a bit like a cheat. The complete bulletin is directly below. »

10 Sequels You Didn’t Know Were Coming In 2015

20 January 2015 7:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

FilmDistrict

From giving M. Night Shyamalan more money, to just adding rap music to everything, Hollywood’s had a few regrettable mantras over the years. Right now though, the main one seems to be that, if something did alright once, then it’ll definitely do alright another 3, 4 or 5 times – when the next Captain America film arrives there will have been more Marvel movies than people to have walked on the moon.

That isn’t always a bad thing of course – some of cinema’s greatest moments have been part of a story that simply couldn’t be contained in one movie outing. Luke finding out who his father was, Don Fannuci getting one between the eyes, and Larry and Richard spending another weekend at Bernie’s; having the foundations laid beforehand can lead to some of the finest filmmaking ever seen.

But what continued wonders does 2015 hold? Well, there’s »

TCA 2015: Fox drama’s executive producer expounds on the damage of denial

Lee Daniels didn’t mince words during the panel for the freshman Fox drama “Empire” during the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday, offering his frank thoughts on homophobia in the African American community, which he said is “killing African American women.”

Asked about the unapologetic homophobia displayed by central character Lucious Lyon (portrayed by Terrence Howard), “Empire” co-creator Daniels let loose, explaining that the seeds of Lucious’ homophobia were planted when Daniels was researching his 2009 film “Precious.”

TCA 2015: New Fox thriller will go a second round only if it’s “organically and creatively correct,” “Sixth Sense” filmmaker says

M. Night Shyamalan made his name shocking moviegoers with unexpected twists on the big screen, but the decision to shift to television for the upcoming Fox thriller “Wayward Pines” was an easy one.

During the panel, “The Sixth Sense” mastermind recalled reading the pilot script for “Wayward Pines” and being perplexed.

“I didn’t understand how any of this could make sense,” Shyamalan said.

Wayward Pines Team Talks Thriller's Twin Peaks Vibe, 'Perfect Reveal'

17 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fox’s upcoming event series Wayward Pines is taking some cues from the equally mysterious Twin Peaks.

The late ABC drama — which is being revived by Showtime next year — “was an inspiration for the [Fox] show, for sure,” executive producer Chad Hodge admitted at a Televisions Critics Association winter press tour panel on Saturday. The Ep noted that Blake Crouch, the author of the books on which Pines is based, was a big fan of David Lynch’s cult favorite.

However, the 10-episode thriller — which follows a Secret Service agent (played by Matt Dillon, There’s Something About Mary) who comes »

21 Burning Questions for 2015: ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Avengers’? Can Johnny Depp, J. Lo Break Slump? Where’s M. Night?

7 January 2015 6:57 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With movies from blockbuster franchises like “Star Wars,” “The Avengers” and James Bond rolling out, industry insiders and analysts say the 2015 box office is a good bet to be the biggest in history.

Joining the chorus hailing this year’s prospects for the exhibition sector and the movie biz in general is B. Riley analyst Eric Wold.

“After declining by 5.2 percent in 2014, the domestic box office should rebound sharply by 7-8 percent in 2015 and set a new annual record above $11 billion,” Wold said, adding that he expected Imax and 3-D to be a driving force.

Every year, TV networks trot out a raft of new offerings to compete for viewers’ eyeballs — an increasingly difficult task, given the ever-growing number of options available to the public. But even in what some have dubbed the new Golden Age of Television, there are bound to be some shows that are less deserving of your time than others.

In 2015, the viewing public will be faced with choices that include, not one, but two new shows from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan; an update on iconic sitcom “The Odd Couple;” and a comedy starring “Saturday Night Live” alum Will Forte »
