24 September 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Haley Joel Osment Is Teaching 'Sex Ed'

23 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The student has become the teacher.

Once best known for his role as the "I see dead people" child in M. Night Shyamalan's 1999 film The Sixth Sense, Haley Joel Osment is returning to the big screen ...awkwardly. In Sex Ed, the 26-year-old plays a guy named Eddie who lands his first teaching gig at an inner-city middle school. He soon finds that his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education, and, though he isn't really equipped to teach them, he's takes on the challenge.

Osment isn't the only familiar face you'll spot in this indie comedy. Matt Walsh (Veep), Retta (Parks and Recreation), Abby Elliott (Saturday Night Live), Lorenza Izzo (The Green Inferno, Hemlock Grove ), Glen Powell (Expendables 3) and Lamorne Morris (The New Girl) also star in Sex Ed, hitting theaters Nov. 7, 2014.

Expect to see more of Osment on the big screen. In addition »

Inside the Emmy Parties: Ian Somerhalder, George R.R. Martin, ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘Veep’ Casts on the Scene

23 August 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards aren’t till Monday, Aug. 25, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Friday, Aug. 22:

6:35 p.m. “Classy” is a good word to describe “The Good Wife,” and it’s the perfect adjective to describe the early evening reception that CBS threw at Il Cielo to toast the show and its nommed stars: Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles and Christine Baranski. The gathering on the private patio next to the restaurant was intimate and relaxed. And the Burton Way eatery lived up to its reputation for incredible pasta dishes.

6:40 p.m. “Good Wife” creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King are too classy to dwell on the fact that the show was not nominated in the top drama series despite universal accolades for its fifth season. »

Watch Richard Armitage and Max Deacon talk Into the Storm – Fmtv Exclusive Interview

22 August 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Into the Storm is out in UK cinemas now, and Flickering Myth TV were lucky enough to sit down with a bunch of the film’s stars. Finally up (watch our first interviews here, here and here) is our chat with actors Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Max Deacon (Flashbacks of a Fool, I, Anna) – where we talk about their experiences on the movie, which you can watch below.

Taking the disaster movie genre and giving it a found-footage twist, here’s the synopsis for Into the Storm:

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, »

Into The Storm, film review:

21 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

A series of "twisters" rip through a small Midwestern town – and a father and his two teenage sons try to make sense of their relationship as they struggle together to survive the storm. The special effects here are fine. The director Steven Quale gives a sense of the full destructive power of the tornado. Humans, cars and buildings seem like pieces of clothing caught in some huge tumble dryer. There is an engaging strain of self-mocking humour, too, in the film's portrayal of the YouTubers in reckless pursuit of disaster footage and of the TV team, led by hard-driving documentary-maker Pete (Matt Walsh), also doing its best to get into the eye of the storm. »

Watch: Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Jack McBrayer, Ellie Kemper & More In 12-Minute Comedy Short 'The Nobodies'

21 August 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this week, Dusty Brown and Greg Bratman — who are Upright Citizens Brigade alumni — quietly released their new short film “The Nobodies,” and they rounded up comedy names like Jim Gaffigan, "Veep" star Tony HaleJack McBrayerEllie Kemper, and Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster to play along. The short grew out of a duo Brown and Bratman formed in NYC called “The Barrel Brothers,” that they describe as 'a talentless vaudevillian team of two naïve brothers from a fictional town in Kansas who were out of their depth performing in the big city.' Their long-running show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater won Best Emerging Comedy Duo in 2004, and gave them a platform where they met the actors who appear in their short. Here's the official synopsis: In “The Nobodies”, our two central characters (Greg and Dusty) have to make a fantastical journey through their own identity crises. »

Watch director Steven Quale talk Into the Storm – Fmtv Exclusive Interview

21 August 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Into the Storm is out in UK cinemas now, and Flickering Myth TV were lucky enough to sit down with a bunch of the film’s stars. Third up (watch our first interview here and here) is our chat with director Steven Quale (Final Destination 5, Aliens of the Deep) – where we talk about the challenges of going from a pre-existing franchise to a new property, crazy practical effects and other experiences on the movie, which you can watch below.

Taking the disaster movie genre and giving it a found-footage twist, here’s the synopsis for Into the Storm:

Into the Storm Review

20 August 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Steven Quale’s first movie was Final Destination 5. Hailed as a slight return to form for a franchise bogged down by the sequel dogma of most protracted horror franchises, perhaps this spelled good things for Quale, maybe by upping the spectacle, action, and tension of a disaster flick? Into the Storm represents all those things; a perfect playground for an upcoming genre talent. Sadly, it rarely pays off on any promise – and reminds you that, actually, Final Destination 5 wasn’t all that good anyway.

In the American town of Silverton, it’s Graduation Day. But a bright future is darkened by black clouds, as the stormchaser team led by Pete (Matt Walsh) and Allison (The Walking Dead’s Sarah Wayne Callies) detect a massive storm system heading straight for Silverton. After the initial tornado hits, Gary (Richard Armitage) must rescue his son, Donnie (Max Deacon), before the next »

Into The Storm Review

20 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Steven Quale

Starring: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Alycia Debnam Carey, Matt Walsh, Arlen Escarpeta

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 89 minutes

Synopsis: Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.

Never since the cult classic Twister have the movie studios really dared to throw their money into the turbulent world of tornado thrillers, without sharks. Into The Storm doesn’t mess around with the genre and although struggles to develop interesting dialogue, it ties down a basic narrative for specific purposes. Basically, it’s time for the small American town of Silverton to be ravaged by tornadoes for what will become the biggest storm in history, which comprises of a mammoth 300-mph monster in the grand finale but, I promise you, that’s not a spoiler unless you haven’t seen a trailer.

Synopsis:

Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.

As a professional, I am contractually obliged to give you a full and in-depth review of Into the Storm, but I feel it can be summed up pretty quickly: when the tornadoes are destroying stuff it’s great and when they’re not, it’s pretty awful. At least they don’t have sharks in them eh?

Into the Storm sets up our main groups of characters who are documenting the days events for various reasons. There is a single-parent family at war who making a time capsule video, a duo of doofus Jackass-wannabes who »

Flickering Myth goes Into The Storm

While at a screening of found-footage disaster movie Into The Storm, Flickering Myth Deputy Editor Luke Owen was fortunate enough to try the Oculus Rift Experience to find out exactly what it’s like to be inside a scene from the movie. You can watch the video below.

“It’s incredibly immersive”, Owen said. “This has to be the future of video games. You really feel like you’re in there with the characters. If they could get movie quality footage, it would be incredible”.

“I want one in my house”, he concluded.

Veep Season 3 – Episode 5 Review

19 August 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matt Smith reviews episode five of Veep season 3…

In the world of politics, things happen very fast. This is what Veep has been saying since day one, with its fast paced line delivery and constantly shifting situations building a perfect example of farce. This week is another week where Meyer tries her best to build herself up and, ultimately because of herself, is pulled back down to be ‘only’ Vice-President.

Episode five begins where the previous left off, with Meyer prepping her team for her push for Presidency. She has a room full of busy bees, meetings with other candidates and secret meetings with people telling her she should fire her entire staff.

Meanwhile, Dan and Amy constantly try and one-up each other in their bids for campaign manager, Mike is working his work schedule around attempts to have a baby through IVF and Gary is still struggling with a »

Richard Armitage on The Hobbit stars he'd take Into the Storm

18 August 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Richard Armitage stars in this week's disaster drama Into the Storm as a single father fighting to protect his two sons – one of whom is played by Max Deacon – from a deadly and unprecedented cluster of tornadoes.

When Digital Spy caught up with the pair recently, we took the opportunity to ask Armitage which Hobbit cast members he would want with him in a real-life disaster situation.

Armitage and Deacon also discussed their favourite disaster movies, their most challenging days on set, and what they'd both do in a real crisis.

"I suspect I'd be going in the opposite direction, but I'll be picking people up on the way," Armitage mused. "It's hard to predict, isn't it? You certainly hope that you have a survival instinct. I don't think »

Into the Storm review: Richard Armitage's Twister on steroids

18 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Steven Quale; Screenwriter: John Swetnam; Starring: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Alycia Debnam Carey, Jeremy Sumpter; Running time: 89 mins; Certificate: 12A

The disaster movie has dazzled us with the biggest A-list talent (see Irwin Allen's Towering Inferno) and cutting edge CGI effects (Twister), so how best to reinvent a genre that's been reinterpreted from nearly every conceivable angle? Steven Quale's Into the Storm takes a leaf out of Cloverfield's book and anchors its story in the found footage aesthetic that's become a staple of 21st century cinema. Here the villain isn't a city-levelling monster, instead the film's protagonists battle an epic storm that tears through a small American town on the day of high school graduation.

Into the Storm and the changing face of the disaster movie

15 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The disaster movie hits the next level a week from now with the release of Into the Storm, a drama that sees a tornado rip through a small American town on the day of high school graduation. Directed by James Cameron protégé Steven Quale, the film introduces the found footage aesthetic to a story of a father (Richard Armitage) desperately trying to save his son (Max Deacon). There are multiple perspectives juggled, too, notably a pair of redneck daredevils getting close to the action in a bid to make a viral video and a professional storm-chasing outfit led by Matt Walsh's documentary maker. Think of it as Twister turned up to 11.

"The journey all these characters go through, I was hoping to do that in a more intimate way to show a disaster as opposed to the wide, epic, sweeping shots that a cinematic movie would traditionally do," Quale tells Digital Spy. »

No Longer Will Character Actors Be Referred to as 'Hey, It's That Guy'

13 August 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Day in and day out, character actors go without the recognition that superstars, blockbuster leading men and Oscar-winners get every single day. Most of the time audiences can't even be bother to learn their name, constantly pointing and saying "Hey, it's that guy!" or "It's that guy from that one thing." But some of Hollywood's character actors have had enough, and they're looking for some recognition. Entertainment Weekly has put together this powerful PSA featuring character actors like Rob Corddry, Doug Jones, Rob Huebel and more, making sure you know who they are, and they deserve to be called by their name. Here's EW's important message from the character actors of Hollywood: Donald Faison, Matt Walsh, David Costabile, Silas Weir Mitchell, Anthony Stewart Head, Donal Logue and Mark Evan Jackson aren't anywhere near covering all the various actors who don't gain the fame of actors like Tom Hanks. Though this PSA is tongue-in-cheek in nature, »
