Into the Storm Review

23 hours ago | 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 »

Max Deacon, Nathan Kress & Alycia Debnam Carey – Into the Storm interview

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Into the Storm is released in UK cinemas today, and Flickering Myth TV were lucky enough to sit down with a bunch of the film’s stars. Second up (watch our first interview here) is our chat with actors Max Deacon (Summer in February, I, Anna), Nathan Kress (Chicken Little, iCarly) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Dream Life, Dance Academy) – to chat 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, testing how far a storm »

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.

Into the Storm, 2014

Directed by Steven Quale

Starring Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Alycia Debnam Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Jeremy Sumpter, Lee Whittacker, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence

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.

Into the Storm and the changing face of the disaster movie

"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, »

11 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

MarVista Entertainment has acquired North American distribution rights for Haley Joel Osment romantic comedy “Sex Ed,” with the pic scheduled for a Nov. 7 release in select markets and on VOD.

Sex Ed” follows Eddie (Osment) as he lands his first teaching gig at an inner-city middle school, where he quickly finds that his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education. Eddie isn’t exactly equipped to teach them — he’s a virgin. And he’s falling in love with Pilar (Lorenza Izzo), the older sister of one of his students. Eddie goes off the lesson plan and, in doing so, incurs the wrath of the local reverend (Chris Williams).

Sex Ed” is written by “House of Cards” scribe Bill Kennedy, whose screenplay for “The Fixer” made the Black List in 2013. The film is directed by Isaac Feder and produced by Dori Sperko of Sweet Tomato films, Elayne Schneiderman Schmidt, »

Film Review: Failed ‘Twister’ Knockoff ‘Into the Storm’ is All Eyes, No Heart

10 August 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Early incarnations of “Godzilla,” for example, were so memorable because of the characters and its story. The “special effects” were laughable, but the films caught on despite it because they had heart.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Fast forward to today when the reverse tends to happen. Many films overprioritize their special effects but forget to begin from a quality script and craft memorable characters. Without starting there, all you’ve got is an exotic Lamborghini on the outside with a lawnmower engine failing to chug it along. Though Hollywood is currently addicted to eye candy, special effects should be a complement rather than a replacement.

Into the Storm” is directed by Steven Quale. We’ve only seen him in the director’s chair once before at the helm of “Final Destination 5,” but he also served as a visual effects supervisor on “Avatar.” “Into the Storm” opens with a tense and well-executed introductory scene, »

Storm Drain of the Century: The Disaster Film Gets a Retrofit

It’s unclear if there’s any real point to the rather silly conception of the seemingly overtly serious Into the Storm, a retrofitted disaster flick that mimics the narrative of Twister sans the notable cast and pesky bits of extraneous detritus, such as character development. From the director that brought you Final Destination 5 comes this rain soaked little windstorm that will evaporate from your memory as soon as you return to meteorological reality. You’re bound to see films that are much worse this summer, but maybe few that seem as keen to prey on the base notion that there’s a sizeable audience out there wanting to pay stiff ticket prices to see stuff get blown away. Since it is rated PG-13, you aren’t going to witness any of the real carnage that such natural »

‘Into the Storm’ is a pale shadow of better films

Into The Storm

Written by John Swetnam

Directed by Steven Quale

USA, 2014

The tornado-chasing thriller Into The Storm is a film which simultaneously has no reason to exist (because “first-person storm-chaser” is one of the most popular genres on YouTube) and every reason to exist (because the aforementioned YouTube videos are typically amateurish and ugly). Accordingly, the film is plagued with the problems of not knowing sort of movie it wants to be, nor what sort of message it hopes to deliver. It’s every bit the same sort of mess that a real-life tornado leaves in its path.

Nominally, director Steven Quale is producing the same story as the 1996 Jan de Bont film Twister, which came from the same studio as Into the Storm (Warner Brothers). A group of storm chasers led by Matt Walsh and Sarah Wayne Callies head to a small Oklahoma town where an epic outbreak »

Matt Walsh and Jeremy Sumpter Talk Into The Storm, Driving the Titus, Real Life Tornado Experiences, Sharknado and More

Veteran storm chaser, Pete Moore (Matt Walsh), will do whatever it takes to capture the ultimate tornado on film in the action-packed thriller, Into the Storm, and he’s created the ultimate vehicle for the task.  Jacob (Jeremy Sumpter), the newest member of his team, is determined to help Pete capture the once-in-a-lifetime shot, but he gets more than he bargained for when he comes on board.  With the film opening in theaters this Friday, August 8th, I recently sat down with Walsh and Sumpter for a roundtable interview to discuss their exciting new film. The actors talked about what appealed to them about their characters and the separate storylines, their real life experience with tornados, what it was like driving a kick-ass storm-chasing vehicle, how they filmed the scenes where their characters go into the tornado, what it felt like going through a fire tornado, the found footage they shot, »
