The Mist on Spike: Cancelled, No Season Two of Stephen King Horror Drama

28 September 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It seems the fog has burned off. Spike has cancelled The Mist TV show after just one season. Based on the Stephen King novella, The Mist first premiered on Spike TV on June 22, 2017. The Viacom-owned channel will rebrand as "Paramount Network," in early 2018. A few months prior to its first and only season debut, Kevin Kay, president of Paramount Network, TV Land and Cmt said the new TV series had "potential," and that they would renew it for season two, if the first season found "success" on Spike. Airing on the Spike cable channel, The Mist stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Frances Conroy.

The Mist Season 1 Episode 8 Review – ‘The Law of Nature’

10 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the eighth episode of The Mist

Natural selection by supernatural forces seems to be par for the course this week in The Mist. With sexual tensions running high, food, water and common sense are left by the door. Familial clashes continue being unearthed and reconciliation seems a million miles off. All that can be guaranteed is the ever-present pea soup which lurks outside welcoming visitors.

Bandying around biblical hell fire, prophetic visions and words of mumbo jumbo wisdom Mrs. Raven carries on her mad as a barmpot routine. Laying down subtle threats, giving it the full on glassy-eyed bag lady rhetoric whilst reminding everyone that her naked stroll and survival had more to do with purity of spirit than anything else. As confessional panic leaks from every pore Raven takes full advantage and goes as far as humanly possible in taking the opportunity. By relying on spiritual »

On the Cusp: Person to Person Director Dustin Guy Defa on Turning a Short into a Feature, Directing Actors and the Question of Agents

27 July 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Dustin Guy Defa is on the cusp of big changes. The filmmaker’s second feature film, Person To Person, opens tomorrow. In it, Defa delicately interweaves multiple stories taking place over one day in the lives of New Yorkers portrayed by an ensemble of legendary performers (Phillip Baker Hall, Isiah Whitlock Jr.), name actors (Michael Cera), newcomers (Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gerivson, George Sample III), and so-called “non-actors” (Bene Coopersmith). It’s a bighearted, hilarious and impressive display of Defa’s directorial skills and the kind of film that can jump start a career. The road to getting it made is a bit unusual. […] »

Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gevinson & More Survive New York in Trailer for ‘Person to Person’

22 June 2017 2:55 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Multiple New York stories come together in Dustin Guy Defa’s Person to Person, an ensemble piece that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film was shot on 16mm, which lead The Film Stage’s Dan Mecca to comment, “There is certainly — and commendably — a worn look to this version of New York City, thanks in large part to cinematographer Ashley Connor and her use of Super 16. If not for cell phones and other modern tech, we could be in the middle of a Woody Allen picture from the 1980s.”

Featuring a cast that includes Abbi Jacobson, Michael Cera, Tavi Gevinson, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., George Sample III, Olivia Luccardi, Hunter Zimny, Ben Rosenfield (here meeting a better fate than on Twin Peaks), and Philip Baker Hall. Watch the first trailer below.

During a single day in New York City, a variety of characters grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives. An investigative reporter struggles with her first day on the job, despite help from her misguided boss; a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals with other desires; and a young man seeks to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend, even as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover traverses the city in search of a rare record for his vinyl collection.

‘Person to Person’ Trailer: Michael Cera Stars In A Summer Indie That Evokes the Best of Woody Allen

22 June 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dustin Guy Defa has been making a name for himself on the indie circuit with acclaimed short films like “Review” and his 2011 feature “Bad Fever,” but his profile is about to get a huge boost with the release of “Person to Person.” The movie was a Sundance highlight earlier this year and finds the writer-director evoking the best of Woody Allen’s scrappy New York City days.

Read More: ‘Person To PersonReview: Tavi Gevinson And Philip Baker Hall Shine In This Charming New York City Mosaic

Person to Person” is set during a single day in New York City and follows a disparate group of characters all facing various emotional obstacles. Abbi Jacobson plays an investigative reporter trying to get through her first day on the job with help from her misguided boss (Michael Cera). Tavi Gevinson plays a rebellious teen attempting to balance her feminist ideals with other desires. Other story threads follow a young man seeking to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend and an avid music lover searching for a rare vinyl.

In his B+ review out of Sundance, IndieWire senior film critic David Ehrlich said, “Dustin Guy Defa’s ‘Person to Person’ is a gentle summer breeze of a movie that’s set during an early fall day. Amiably unstuck in time without feeling anachronistic, Defa’s second feature pulls off the trick of offering an analog version of New York in a digital age.”

The “Person to Person” ensemble includes Isiah Whitlock, Michaela Watkins, Olivia Lucciardi, Ben Rosenfield, Buddy Durress, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III and Philip Baker Hall.

Magnolia Pictures will release “Person to Person” in theaters, on iTunes, OnDemand and Amazon Video July 28. Watch the trailer below.

Movie Review – Cars 3 (2017)

16 June 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cars 3, 2017.

Directed by Brian Fee.

Featuring the voice talents of Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, Cristela Alonzo, Nathan Fillion, Chris Cooper, Bonnie Hunt, Larry the Cable Guy, Kerry Washington, Tony Shalhoub, Bob Costas, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Ray Magliozzi, Bob Peterson, Lea, DeLaria, Darrell Waltrip, Cheech Marin, Margo Martindale, John Ratzenberger, and Paul Newman.

Synopsis:

Lightning McQueen sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he’s still the best race car in the world.

Seeing as the Cars franchise started a little over a decade ago, young children have most likely aged to their adolescent or teenage years, meaning that Pixar and director Brian Fee (storyboard artist turned director making his debut feature here) have made a wise decision upping the maturity level for this third installment in the series. Cars has always been the most kid friendly Pixar franchise from a studio clearly fascinated with churning »

“Cars 3” goes back to its franchise’s roots

15 June 2017 3:31 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For the juggernaut that is Pixar, the one consistent mark on an otherwise essentially spotless record has been the Cars franchise. Give or take one or two other outings that some people are higher on than others, this franchise is the only thing keeping the company from essentially a perfect record. This week, Cars 3 hits theaters and hopes to right the ship as it becomes part of a trilogy. Cars has a mixed reputation, but Cars 2 is Pixar’s somewhat red headed stepchild. Can Cars 3 change the trend? Well, yes and no. It’s going to be the best in the series to some or most, but it’s still very much lesser Pixar overall. I suppose your mileage may vary here (no pun intended) with this one. This sequel looks at how racer Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) deals with no longer being the new kid on the block. »
