The 11 Indie Films You Must See This March

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

#1. It Follows (March 13)(Film Page) Director: David Robert Mitchell Cast: Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, Lili Sepe Criticwire Average: A- Why is it a "Must See"? Director David Robert Mitchell follows up "The Myth of the American Sleepover" with an expressionistic teen horror movie that's like nothing else. While "Myth of the American Sleepover" took the whiny young archetypes of a John Hughes movie in an expressionistic direction, "It Follows" turns to eighties teen slashers of the "Halloween" and "Nightmare on Elm Street" variety while elevating them to a more abstract plane, rendering the looming threat of adulthood in ominous terms. #2. While We're Young (March 27)(Film Page) Director: Noah Baumbach Cast: Ben Stiller, Amanda Seyfried, Naomi Watts, Charles Grodin Criticwire Average: B+ Why is it a "Must See"? Noah Baumbach's witty portrait of a documentarian coming »

Low-Budget 'Lazarus' D.O.A. at Domestic Box Office

7 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Lazarus Effect' box office: Olivia Wilde horror thriller has deadly debut while 'Fifty Shades of Grey' gets increasingly colorless (photo: Olivia Wilde in 'The Lazarus Effect') Despite recent news that human head transplants are a mere two years away, the low-budget horror movie The Lazarus Effect – about bringing the dead back to life (as if world overpopulation weren't already a problem) – is expected to take in less than $10 million from 2,666 venues on opening weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, in the U.S. and Canada. With a dismal 13% approval rating and 4/10 average at Rotten Tomatoes, the Relativity Studios-distributed flick starring Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde earned an estimated $3.8 million on Friday, including $350,000 from Thursday night screenings. For comparison's sake, Mike Flanagan's Oculus, featuring Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites, pulled in $12 million at 2,648 sites on its North American opening weekend in April 2014.

5 must-watch March cinema releases: Chappie, Insurgent, Cinderella

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're only three months into 2015 but already it feels like blockbuster season is here. This month sees the next instalment in The Divergent Series, a new offering from Neill Blomkamp and Disney reinventing an old classic in live-action. Add these to an Oscar winning acting showcase and the latest from Studio Ghibli and March is looking golden.

Release diary: What movies are coming out in 2015?

Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this March...

1. Chappie

Release date: March 6

Why you should see it: All the talk surrounding Neill Blomkamp at the moment is surrounding his proposed Alien sequel, perhaps overshadowing the fact he actually has a new film coming out. Following on from District 9 and Elysium, the filmmaker's third feature Chappie centres on a police robot who's rebooted and develops a consciousness. Look out for a mulleted Hugh Jackman, Die Antwoord playing themselves and startlingly »

Insurgent set for $57 million+ Us opening, bigger than Divergent

27 February 2015 1:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, which is set for release at the end of March, looks likely to have a bumper opening weekend in the Us, with tickets sales up on the original.

Tickets for Insurgent went on sale earlier this week through Us ticket companies Fandango and MovieTickets.com, and early industry indications have the film heading for a $57 million three-day box office opening during its March 20th-22nd weekend. And while the estimates don’t include advance sales, industry tracking has the film above the $54 million opening weekend of Divergent on the same weekend last year.

Understandably, the film’s tracking is strongest amongst females, with 83% of awareness from females under-25, and  another 77% from teenagers between 12-16, with females again showing the main interest in the film.

Robert Schwentke (Red, The Time Traveller’s Wife) directs the sequel, which sees the return of Shailene Woodley, »

New Trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young Starring Ben Stiller & Naomi Watts

27 February 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

While We're Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging, ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged members of New York's creative class. They tried to start a family and were unable to — and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple, who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion — retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next. »

New Trailer Arrives For Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young

26 February 2015 1:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Noah Baumbach has carved out a successful slate of features exploring a variety of demographics. From The Squid And The Whale‘s dysfunctional family dynamic to Frances Ha‘s directionless-yet-awesome protagonist, the director has tackled his fair share of neuroses. With his latest offering, comedy drama While We’re Young, his sights are set on investigating an entirely new type of character.

The film stars Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller, a happily-married couple each in their forties. Having made peace with the prospect of a childless future, the pair broaden their horizons when they befriend a much younger couple – played by Amanda Seyfried and Adam Driver. And therein begins the next stage in their life as Watts and Stiller commence with a series of pratfalls during their attempts at impressing their youthful companions.

Last fall we saw the first teaser, that set up the premise nicely while offering both leads a solid amount of one-liners. »

Strand Releasing Acquires U.S. Rights To Pat Mills' Comedy 'Guidance'

The Toronto Film Festival selection "Guidance" has been picked up by Strand Releasing. The film, starring, directed by and written by Pat Mills, has a premise like a sitcom: an immature former child actor cons his way into a job as a high school guidance counselor and gives typically terrible advice. The protagonist is based on Mills, who appeared on Nickelodeon's "You Can't Do That On Television" when he was a kid. Strand is planning a theatrical release in the Fall.

Ben Stiller Tries to Be Hip in Second Trailer for 'While We're Young'

26 February 2015 10:47 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Why do you suddenly want to hang out with a couple of 25 year olds?" You're only as young as you feel, and Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts seem to feel like they're in their mid-20s again. At least, that's what happens when they start hanging out with youngsters Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried in While We're Young, the latest from The Squid and the Whale / Frances Ha writer & director Noah Baumbach. This might be Baumbach's most accessible film, perhaps with a skew toward older crowds as opposed to the usual young, hip indie audience. But the writing, characters and comedy are genuine enough for all to enjoy. Here's the second trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young originally from Yahoo: You can still watch the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's While We're Young right here.

26 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Now that the fervor of awards season has subsided, it's time to look ahead to the films and actors likely to dominate the conversation among critics, audiences, and artists in the coming year! Who’s to say which of these performances will sink and which will swim? Only time—and buzz, of course—will tell. Mark Ruffalo & Zoe Saldana, “Infinitely Polar Bear”This Sundance favorite is written and directed by up-and-comer Maya Forbes and stars the irresistibly charming Ruffalo and Saldana. The indie comedy, which centers on a manic depressive patriarch, appears to hit that sweet spot between endearing and cathartic that awards season so admires. And isn’t it about time these two talents earned Academy recognition?
