Early in Patricia Rozema’s “Into the Forest,” an intimate sci-fi portrait of sisterhood which has been adapted from Jean Hegland’s 1996 novel of the same name, one of the film’s few male characters casually declares that it’s the end of the world. He may not be wrong: It’s been 10 days since an unexplained power outage has sent the entire country back to the Stone Age, and there doesn’t seem to be any hope that the lights will come back on again anytime soon.
In northern California, where Eva (Evan Rachel Wood) and her younger sister Nell (Ellen Page) live in a secluded glass house with their dad (Callum Keith Rennie), our precariously fragile civilization has already started to crumble. And yet — after the man of the house dies in a freak accident and the two girls are left to care for themselves — hints begin to »

Evan Rachel Wood has stood up for others who identify as bisexual, but the actress still feels there's a long way to go. In an interview with Motto from the editors of Time, the True Blood alum says she feels that being bisexual comes with "many negative connotations." "I think because we're usually erased, people just don't have the information," she told Motto. "There's so many negative connotations with that label. I understand the argument about labels and the desire to do away with them altogether. I think that's a great idea. But before that we have to give people »

HBO is facing the worst sort of weather delay — one that may keep “Game of Thrones” from competing in the 2017 Emmys race. But that might be good news for its other programming.
In an interview with the Ufc Unfiltered podcast and picked up across many outlets, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss admitted that production on Season 7 would begin later this year because now that “winter is here,” they’ll need to wait for actual physical winter before they begin shooting. As a result, the show’s typical April premiere date is unlikely.
Right now, the exact length of Season 7 is unconfirmed. But it’s expected that the final two seasons will likely be shorter, between 13-15 episodes total, as opposed to 20. The shortened order could mean that “Thrones” might still make it under the deadline: If an eight-episode Season 7 is able to premiere on Sunday, May 7, 2017, four episodes would »

Since the beginning of Thandie Newton’s career, the actress has always been attracted to difficult roles that explore themes about race and violence against women. This could be because of an incident that occurred in the beginning of her career that made her want to stand up for herself.
In a recent interview with W Magazine, the “Westworld” actress recalled when she was sexually abused as a teen by a male director during an audition.
“A director, on a callback, had a camera shooting up my skirt and asked me to touch my tits and think about the guy making love to me in the scene,” she said. “I thought, ‘Ok, this is a little weird,’ but there was a female casting director in the room and I’d done weird stuff before so I did it.”
Then years later, a drunk producer at a film festival approached her »

This is shaping up to be a good summer for Ellen Page, or at least for fans of Ellen Page. Next month, the actress stars in two movies: Tallulah and Into the Forest. The trailer for the latter — a somber apocalyptic drama co-starring Evan Rachel Wood — was released last month. Today, we have our first real look at Tallulah, Sian Heder‘s […]

If HBO viewers are frantically pursuing something to watch now that Game of Thrones has wrapped up for season 6, Westworld will hope to fill that void and then some when Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s sci-fi series makes its bow later in 2016.
Truth be told, it’s been a long and meandering road for the Western series, after production ground to a halt so that HBO could reportedly iron out creative differences that threatened to derail its serialized spin on the 1973 film of the same name.
That said, the Westworld bound for the small-screen is decidedly different than Michael Crichton’s thrilling classic, and leading star Evan Rachel Wood told Collider that viewers have no idea what’s coming.
“I’m also tickled at how little people know. All the expectations and the guesses I’ve heard are not even in the ball park. So, I love that people »

Easily one of the most anticipated new series of the year is HBO's "Westworld". Despite the much talked about problems during production, Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams' ambitious sci-fi series remake of the classic Michael Crichton 1973 film could be a remake that easily surpasses the original with the longer format allowing for a much bigger and more interesting exploration of the issues at its heart.
"I'm also tickled at how little people know. All the expectations and the guesses I've heard are not even in the ball park. So, I love that people are going to go in thinking it's one thing, and being very surprised to find it another, in a good way.

There have been many apocalyptic movies over the past few years, but it’s unlikely you’ll find one as intimate as Into The Forest. Set in the near future, the movie stars Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood as sisters who live with their dad (played by Callum Keith Rennie) in an isolated house out in the Pacific Northwest.
One night the power goes out, and what seems like a temporary situation turns into a never ending one, as rumors spread about the power crisis without any concrete answers being given. The three try to go about their normal lives, but when tragedy strikes, the two sisters are forced to fend for themselves as circumstances turn increasingly bleak.
At the recent press day for the film in La, I got to speak with Page and Wood as well as their co-star, Max Minghella, who plays Page’s boyfriend in the movie. »

Page, who served as a producer for the film, told Variety at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere that she was captivated by Jean Hegland’s book of the same name because it begged her to question people’s relationships with the world.
“The book encompassed a lot of the things I was thinking about at the time, of one’s relationship to the environment. It was a beautiful, compelling, scary story,” Page said.
The film centers on two sisters (Page and Wood) who face a devastating — in all sense of the word — power outage, and fight to survive in the film. Wood says that she doesn’t just view this film as one with strong female leads.
“People keep saying to me, ‘Wow it’s so amazing to see a film with strong women. »

HBO released the first full trailer for its sci-fi western “Westworld” on Sunday night, almost a year after debuting its first teaser.
The trailer, which features a massive orgy scene, opens to Delores (Evan Rachel Wood), a robot disguised as a human, sitting in a dark room and asked “have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?”
Set in a futuristic world, “Westworld” takes place inside of a theme park populated by robots. But the creators become worried when the androids begin to take on human characteristics.
“I’m terrified,” Dolores responds. “I feel spaces opening up inside of me, like a building with rooms I’ve never explored. I think there may be something wrong with this world. Something hiding underneath.”
Executive produced by J.J. Abrams and also starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris and James Marsden, “Westworld” is a re-imagining of the 1973 film of the same name directed by Michael Crichton. Jonathan Nolan »

Robots populating a futuristic theme park begin to develop sentience in the creepy new trailer for HBO's Westworld, a 10-episode sci-fi/thriller premiering on the network in October.
The clip opens with humanoid Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) sitting in a Lynchian dark room, asked by an eerie voice if she's ever "questioned the nature of [her] reality." From there, the preview reveals the foreboding Western landscapes of Westworld, a theme park where customers can indulge their depraved desires for sex and gun-slinging.
But the park's operators begin to worry as the »
