Film Review: ‘The Misplaced World’

7 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2015 Berlin Film Festival wasn’t an auspicious one for the storied veterans of the 1970s New German Cinema (notably Wim Wenders and Werner Herzog), and that downward trend continued apace with Margarethe Von Trotta’s “The Misplaced World.” A middle-aged soap opera that strains credibility so often as to make Nicholas Sparks seem a master of neorealism, Von Trotta’s sudsy tale of long-lost loves and unearthed family secrets swirls around the director’s trademark themes of sisterhood and female solidarity, but never comes to life on a dramatic or psychological level. It’s not the world that’s been misplaced here, but rather a once-great director’s judgment.

Von Trotta was inspired to make “The Misplaced World” by her own late-in-life discovery of an adult half-sister, though the movie she’s ended up with feels more contrived than an entire month’s worth of “Days of Our Lives »

Disney Tops Home Video Sales Charts With ‘Alexander,’ ‘101 Dalmatians’

18 February 2015 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios snatched the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 15 with two family-friendly features that debuted on the bigscreen more than half a century apart.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” a live-action comedy with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner that earned $66.9 million during its fall 2014 theatrical run, debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks total disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined.

The animated classic “101 Dalmatians,” which debuted on the bigscreen in 1961 but only became available on Blu-ray last week, debuted at No. 2, selling a respectable 78% as many units as “Alexander,” Nielsen data shows.

On Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray sales chart, the order was reversed, with “101 Dalmatians” bowing at No. 1 and “Alexander” scoring a distant No. 2 finish, selling just one-third as many high-definition discs as the animated classic.

Scott Eastwood Is Already Thinking About Having Kids, Sings Some Tina Turner

18 February 2015 5:16 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Scott Eastwood is following in his father’s footsteps of becoming a leading man on the big screen.

The 28-year-old actor scored the lead in the upcoming Nicholas Sparks’ book-turned-movie, The Longest Ride, out this April. In the highly-anticipated romantic flick, Scott plays Luke Collins, a champion bull rider fighting to save his family’s ranch – an adventurous role that helped him check one activity off his bucket list. But what else is on that list? Scott spilled all while chatting with ETonline.

“Mount Everest…. Kids -- two or three,” Scott answered, before adding he’s also hoping to do another film with his dad. Most recently, Scott appeared alongside his father in 2012’s Trouble with the Curve. He also worked with his legendary pops on Flags of Our Fathers, Invictus, and Gran Torino.

After a successful string of appearances at several major film festivals last year, Spring looks poised to win over the hearts and minds of horror fans when it lands in theaters next month. And, ahead of its forthcoming release, a brand new trailer has arrived (via Collider) that looks set to prove that traveling can be hazardous to one’s health.

Set in the sunny and sinister locale of Italy, the film stars Lou Taylor Pucci as Evan. A young American reeling with grief after his mother’s death, he opts to go on a backpacking trip around Europe. The intoxicating sense of adventure leads him to meet Louise (Nadia Hilker), an exotic beauty, who whisks him off his feet. Their burgeoning romance intensifies until Evan realizes she may have a more problematic skeleton in her closet than most girlfriends.

The Longest Ride Gets A New, Very Long Trailer

13 February 2015 12:12 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In terms of movie adaptations, the output of bestselling author Nicholas Sparks stands as a perfect example of Hollywood’s adherence to the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The “it” in question is Sparks’ very clear formula. With films such as The Notebook, The Last Song and Dear John in his back catalogue, we would surely be forgiven for thinking his storytelling, by this point, is simply a case of joining up the dots, and his latest romance – The Longest Ride – certainly looks as though it will prove that to be true.

Starring Britt Robertson (Cake) and Scott Eastwood (Fury), the Nicholas Sparks book is this time adapted by Craig Bolotin (Black Rain) and is directed by George Tillman Jr. (Faster). In it, another conventionally attractive young couple must overcome some obstacles to make their earth-shattering, life-changing, true love relationship work. You know, just like in The Notebook, »

Scott Eastwood Goes Shirtless in "Longest Ride" Trailer -- See Steamy Sneak Peek!

12 February 2015 2:15 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Brace yourselves, people! The new trailer for Nicholas Sparks' latest silver screen adaptation, "The Longest Ride," just dropped and we're getting to see Scott Eastwood in all his shirtless glory. The story follows the lives of star-crossed lovers (aren't they always?) Luke Collins and Sophia Danko. Luke is a champion bull rider while Sophia is a college student. Things get tricky when Collins injures himself in a rodeo and their lives intertwine with a much older man, Ira Levinson (played by Alan Alda), whose personal love story influences the young couple. Clint Eastwood's son steals the screen as the sexy lead character, Luke, while Britt Robertson also stars as Collins' love interest Sophia. Judging from this trailer, there's going to be a ton of steamy love scenes between a shirtless Eastwood and scantly-clad Robertson. Are you excited to see "The Longest Ride"?

'The Longest Ride' Gets a Steamy & Timely Valentine's Day Trailer

12 February 2015 9:46 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's eight seconds. That girl could be the rest of your life." Just in time for Valentine's Day, the latest Nicholas Sparks romance The Longest Ride has gotten a new trailer. However, this isn't full of the whimsy and cheesy romance that we're used to seeing in trailers for these kind of films. Instead, this one seems geared towards the Fifty Shades of Grey audiences (it's probably playing before the film this weekend) with pretty steamy moments between Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood. And because of that, the past romance Alan Alda recounts takes a backseat for sexiness. It just feels like too much. Watch? Here's the latest trailer for George Tillman Jr.'s The Longest Ride from 20th Century Fox: You can still watch the first trailer for The Longest Ride right here. The Longest Ride is directed by George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor, Soul Food, Notorious) and »

12 February 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a close battle for the top-selling disc the week ending Feb. 8, a reboot of one of Universal’s classic monster franchises narrowly outsold the latest Keanu Reeves actioner.

Universal Pictures’ “Dracula Untold” debuted atop the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales charts, which combine DVD and Blu-ray unit sales data, and the dedicated Blu-ray disc sales chart. The film, which grossed $56.3 million at the domestic box office, stars Luke Evans in a story about how the famed vampire came to be.

Lionsgate’s “John Wick” was a close No. 2 on both sales charts, selling 95% as many total copies and 97% as many Blu-ray discs; 50% of “Wick” unit sales were on Blu-ray, compared with 49% for “Dracula.”

“Wick,” a critically lauded thriller starring Keanu Reeves, grossed $43 million at the domestic box office, and also debuted atop Home Media magazine’s rental chart for the week. “Dracula,” like most Universal new releases, is held »

Britt Robertson Explores the Dark Depths of Adolescence in Indie Drama 'White Rabbit'

12 February 2015 8:40 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Britt Robertson is going indie.

The 24-year-old star has already built up years of television credits, from her turn as a once-abandoned foster child on Life Unexpected to a teen girl stuck Under the Dome, along with several high-profile films (Tomorrowland, The Longest Ride). But in White Rabbit, a psychological drama about a teen boy Harlon (Nick Krause) struggling with mental illness and bullying at school whose hallucinations of a rabbit he once killed as a boy cause him to carry out violent acts, Robertson explores the darker depths of adolescence.

Watch: ‘Longest Ride’ Hunk Scott Eastwood Has ‘Fun’ With Shirtless Instagram Pics

The actress spent a week filming the indie after The CW witch drama The Secret Circle abruptly ended in 2012 and her brief time on White Rabbit – “a hard shoot,” she says – was life-altering. Robertson plays the rebellious Julie, who befriends Krause’s character and later finds herself in the crosshairs.

12 February 2015 8:14 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A bull rider and college student fall for each other in the upcoming romance "The Longest Ride." And while it might sound like a "Fifty Shades Of Grey" parody that I'd call "Fifty Shades Of Hay," this is very much a Serious Love Story with two very attractive people with the kind of problems and circumstances only found in a Nicholas Sparks book....which this movie happens to be based on. And just in time for Valentine's Day, a new trailer has arrived. Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson star in the George Tillman Jr.-directed movie about a relationship that's tested (of course), and how they find the spark to keep falling in love or something.
