2015 Summer Movie Preview: 20 Most Anticipated Movies

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The May 1 release of Avengers: Age of Ultron marks the "official" start of the 2015 Summer Movie Season and with that in mind, it's only appropriate to offer up a look forward at what's ahead over the next four months. What is ahead over the next four monthsc Well, a lot of movies that cost a lot of money with a few smaller features mixed in for good measure, and as much as some of us may lament the fact studios have become so franchise focused, it's hard not to admit a desire to see some of these bigger features. As a means of whittling down the flock of films arriving over the next several months I've chosen to take a look at my 20 most anticipated, which does mean there are bound to be some titles I probably ought to mention, but didn't make the list for a variety of reasons. »

See This or Die: Tarsem's 'The Fall'

13 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our weekly feature in which a writer answers the question: If you could force your friends at gunpoint to watch one movie or TV show, what would it be? Released in 2006, Tarsem’s “The Fall” is a gorgeous celebration of storytelling that reveals how stories touch and change the people they are told to and those who tell them. It’s an ode to the very specific mode of storytelling of film. A few minutes into 1915-set “The Fall,” a character played by a pre-stardom Lee Pace attempts to explain to a five-year-old girl, “Pictures, y’know, flickers: moving pictures.” The girl, Alexandria, responds, confused, that she’s never seen one. With a hint of a sly smile, Pace’s Roy replies, “Oh you’re not missing much” – a line that strikes with irony, considering Tarsem’s clear passion for filmmaking and the fact that were “The Fall” to go unwatched, »

The Odd Couples: Three Strange Ryan Reynolds Pairings

9 April 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the new film Woman in Gold out this past weekend, it’s a wonder to think what factors casting agents take into account, especially when pairing a revered British actress with a (some would say) mediocre snarky comedic actor. Obviously Reynolds has lately been taking roles that require more dramatic skills than comedic ones. However, this trend of pairing Reynolds with actors above (or below) his caliber has been a thing for a while. Sure it’s something that’s done all the time with other actors, but this specific casting choice of Mirren/Reynolds sticks out in particular. So why not look at some past odd Ryan Reynolds’ pairings to see if this trend is a good or bad thing.

 

1. Kristen Stewart/Ryan Reynolds in Adventureland (2009)

The age difference isn’t the only weird element about this “romantic” duo. Given Kristen Stewart’s general awkwardness and Ryan Reynolds’ typical charm mixed with smarm, »

Poster Roundup: Mad Max, Maggie, Hitman: Agent 47, Dope, and More

7 April 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A number of new movie posters have been released over the past couple of weeks, so in the interest of convenience we’ve rounded up some of the more notable one-sheets for your viewing pleasure. Briefly: Mad Max: Fury Road – A pair of new posters for George Miller’s insane-looking post-apocalyptic actioner look fittingly mad. Starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult, the film opens in theaters on May 15th. Hitman: Agent 47 – A new poster for the video game adaptation puts Homeland star Rupert Friend front-and-center with a rather intimidating pose. The film opens in theaters on August 28th. Maggie – Otherwise known as "the Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie movie," this film revolves around a father taking care of his zombified daughter (played by Abigail Breslin). The official one-sheet is perhaps more somber than anticipated. The film will open in theaters and On Demand on May 8th. Insidious: Chapter 3 »

Check Out The First Trailer For Tarsem Singh's Selfless

5 March 2015 5:00 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tarsem Singh is known for his stunning creative/surreal visuals in the likes of Immortals and The Cell, so this one looks to be something of a departure in that regard. We're still firmly in sci-fi territory though, as Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3) strives for immortality by having his conciousness shifted to a "host" body that looks a lot like Green Lantern minus the crappy mask. He's happy to live the high life for a while, until... yeah you get the idea. Check out the trailer and poster below. In this provocative psychological science fiction thriller, an extremely wealthy man (Academy Award® Winner Ben Kingsley) dying from cancer undergoes a radical medical procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds).

Selfless: first trailer for new Ryan Reynolds sci-fi movie

4 March 2015 10:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley star in one of the most interesting-looking sci-fi movies of the year. Here's the Selfless trailer...

A good number of the films we've been looking forward to so far this year haven't turned out quite so well. Mortdecai? Best we don't talk about it. And even Michael Mann's Blackhat fell short of what we were hoping.

Here's hoping this one lives up to its potential, though.

We've been following Tarsem Singh's Selfless for a while, a movie that originally was set to be released last year. It stays Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Goode, Michelle Dockery and Ben Kingsley, and it tells the story of a very rich man dying from cancer, who undergoes an experimental medical procedure.

That procedure? It transfers his consciousness into the body of someone younger. Unfortunately, there are consequences to the body that he chose.

The film doesn't currently have a UK release date, »
