Teresa Palmer Will Be Lights Out For James Wan-Produced Horror

29 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The prolific Teresa Palmer, who has six films in the can readying for release (including John Hillcoat crime drama Triple 9 and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups), just signed on for the James Wan-produced horror pic Lights Out.

In a return to the horror genre, where she first made an impression in 2006’s The Grudge 2, Palmer will topline as an imperilled mother. Gabriel Bateman (CBS’ Stalker) was previously announced to be taking on the role of the young son in a family haunted by a supernatural entity that can only be seen in the dark. With everyone at risk, one family member is forced to battle the evil spirit head on.

David F. Sandberg will make his directorial debut on the pic, adapting his terrifying short of the same name. Lawrence Grey and Eric A. Heisserer are attached as producers, with Heisserer scripting an expansion of Sandberg’s story. »

Watch Now! Scott Eastwood Is All Kinds of Sexy in Deleted Scene From The Longest Ride

26 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Scott Eastwood makes us, well, swoon. And nothing captures that like this deleted scene from The Longest Ride. Clint Eastwood's son makes us go a bit weak in the knees with his tight jeans, flannel shirt, boots and a cowboy hat. The scene—officially called "Romance Above the Dam"—shows Eastwood and his co-star Britt Robertson at a lake, walking on a bridge and stopping to chat and share some laughs (Scott's smile!) and a sweet kiss. Based on the Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name, The Longest Ride stars Eastwood and Robertson as a couple befriended by an older man (Alan Alda) as he remembers a past love. The cast also includes Jack Huston, Melissa »

When Marnie Was There Review

25 June 2015 7:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though the future of Studio Ghibli remains uncertain, if When Marnie Was There ends up being the revered animation house’s swan song, it will make for a fitting final chapter in the studio’s history, if not the outright best one. While the anime art style and visual storytelling that endeared Ghibli to millions is still present, and arguably its strongest yet in terms of consistency, When Marnie Was There is a minor entry compared to the likes of Spirited Away, or even last year’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

All the same, When Marnie Was There’s place among the Ghibli canon is undeniable. It’s at once a sweepingly elegiac melodrama, and a simple children’s fable, one adapted from the Joan G. Robinson novel of the same name. Ghibli stories split the difference between visionary fantasy and earthy realism, often times within the same movie, »

The Longest Ride review

21 June 2015 10:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood star in the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation to make it to film. Here's our The Longest Ride review.

There are variables in the chemistry of a Nicholas Sparks film, but the basic formula has seldom changed through films like The Notebook, Dear John and The Lucky One. Even the posters for these movies often look indistinguishable from one another, except for the two actors pictured. The Longest Ride is the tenth Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen and though it sticks to what you'll know if you've seen more than one of the others, it's not necessarily a formula that's in need of fixing.

Stop us if this sounds like we've done a find and replace on some other plot summary, but this time we follow Sophia, (Britt Robertson) who's about to start a prestigious internship at a gallery in New York, just as »

The Longest Ride review – corny as hell but with old-fashioned charm

21 June 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s novel about parallel lives and loves is touching despite thick layers of schmaltz

You know where you are with Nicholas Sparks, and it’s a place I’m always happy to spend a couple of hours. This latest adaptation of a Sparks potboiler finds art student Sophia (Britt Robertson) falling for bull-rider Luke (Scott Eastwood, son of Clint). Their budding relationship parallels that of 91-year-old Ira (Alan Alda) and his beloved wife, Ruth, whose tale is recounted in cherished handwritten letters. In both stories, a man with no eye for art must learn to share his sweetheart’s passion, while a woman with clear-cut goals must decide how much she will sacrifice for love. Like all of Sparks’s stories it’s corny as hell, but there’s an unabashed, old-fashioned charm that gradually warms the cockles and moistens the eye. Robertson and Eastwood »

The Longest Ride, film review: Scott Eastwood stars in treacly and manipulative adaptation

18 June 2015 9:45 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The latest adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel is every bit as treacly and manipulative as its predecessors. Scott Eastwood (Clint's equally rugged son) plays "easy on the eye" professional bull rider Luke Collins. Britt Robertson is Sophia, the art-loving student at university in North Carolina, about to start an internship at a New York gallery but whose life is thrown off-kilter after she meets Luke at a rodeo. »

The Longest Ride review – unbearably syrupy romance

18 June 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Based on a Nicholas Sparks bestseller, this comfy tale of a young woman discovering how lovable old people are wallows in a wholesome, rosy-hued past

One of those rare films whose porn version will have the same title. This unbearable syrupy romance is based on yet another bestseller by the romdram supremo Nicholas Sparks, who specialises in notebooks, manuscripts, caches of love letters and messages in bottles – all telling comfy tales of old-fashioned monogamous passion for the edification of today’s youngsters, set in the rosy-hued past and in the wholesome American south or midwest. Scott Eastwood (son of Clint) plays Luke Collins, a cowboy who makes a living riding bulls at rodeos; he meets cute with brainy sorority gal Sophia (Britt Robertson), who’s taking a fancy degree in art history. Out on a date, they run into a lovable-grumpy old fellow played by Alan Alda, and Britt’s »

The Longest Ride review: Another forgettable Nicholas Sparks movie

18 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: George Tillman Jr; Screenwriter: Craig Bolotin; Starring: Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Alan Alda, Jack Huston, Oona Chaplin, Melissa Benoist; Running time: 128 mins; Certificate: 12A

Don't expect any surprises from The Longest Ride, the 10th big screen adaptation out of the Nicholas Sparks stable. It's a profitable cottage industry for sure, but one that seemingly exists solely as a rite-of-passage for fast-rising 20-something Hollywood stars.

Everyone from Ryan Gosling to Rachel McAdams, Zac Efron and Channing Tatum have passed through a Sparks production on their way to bigger things. However, The Notebook aside, does any Sparks movie linger in the memory?

The Longest Ride is no exception. It'll be forgotten as soon as the credits roll, but its leads Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson show enough charisma here to rise above a risible script, cheesy dialogue and flat direction.

All the Sparksian elements are out in full force: boy meets girl, »

Hamari Adhuri Kahani review – laughable melodrama unworthy of swooning

15 June 2015 4:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Glossy Bollywood romance requires a suspension of disbelief – and taste – beyond the ability of most modern audiences

Western viewers tend to regard blockbuster season as an exclusively English-language phenomenon, which isn’t the case in this globalised era. The Fox fanfare blares out before this new Hindi release; later this week, the Disney-backed sequel ABCD2 bounces on to our screens. Anyone anticipating a degree of homogenisation in such multiplex-bound ventures will likely be confounded by director Mohit Suri’s new throwback: this is straight-faced hothouse melodrama, very much Bollywood trad, pitched at a level Hollywood rarely pursues, even in Nicholas Sparks flicks. It may provoke a similar sniggering from the cheap seats.

Scott Eastwood interview: How Clint's son bounced back after being rejected for role in American Sniper

12 June 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Clint Eastwood’s son Scott has a first leading-man role in Hollywood in The Longest Ride. The film is the 11th adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks romance novel. Previous movies based on books penned by the “king of hearts”, as Sparks is nicknamed, have helped Ryan Gosling, Liam Hemsworth and Amanda Seyfried break through to stardom, so the role of bull-rider Luke Collins might well serve as a springboard to future success for Eastwood. But things could have worked out differently. »
