Two films we’re looking forward to recently kicked off production and seemingly in an effort to combat low-quality unofficial set photos, they’ve already released their first images. First up, Syriana helmer Stephen Gaghan is finally back in the director’s chair with Gold. Led by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez, seen above (via EW), the story follows a geologist and prospector who venture into the Indonesian jungle where they start mining and a scandal erupts. Also starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell, The Weinstein Company will likely distribute it next fall.
Next up, Mel Gibson is also back in the director’s chair for the first time since 2006’s Apocalypto. Hacksaw Ridge is a World War II drama which features Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, “a medic and the first conscientious objector to win the Congressional Medal of Honor after saving dozens »

Despite the mixed reception to The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield’s acting career definitely hasn’t taken too much of a hit, as he recently finished working with Martin Scorsese and will also soon be seen in Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge. The British actor has actually landed the lead role in the World War II set movie and will star alongside Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Rachel Griffiths.
The film will see him playing a solider who was ostracized and made to serve as a medic in the Pacific for his refusal to carry a weapon after being drafted into the army, only to later be branded a hero after saving an entire unit of allied troops.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson has started production on “Hacksaw Ridge” in New South Wales, Australia and released the first official image from the film. Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn are joined by Gibson’s fellow Australian actors Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer and Oscar nominee Rachel Griffiths. “Hacksaw Ridge” tells the extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss (Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing a gun. Believing that the war was just but killing was nevertheless wrong, he was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines. »

After a stellar IMAX opening last week, it was expected that Universal’s Everest would go on to dominate the Us box office this weekend. However, that didn’t quite go as planned.
Opening to just $13 million domestically, Everest only managed to take fourth place against Hotel Transylvania 2 ($47 million), The Intern ($18 million) and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials ($14 million). With a reported budget of $55 million, this is not a good opener for the disaster movie, even with its $7.5 million IMAX only weekend.
Next weekend sees the release of Ridley Scott’s The Martian, so it is unlikely that Everest will find its footing in its second week. Thankfully for Universal, they’ve have had major success elsewhere with Jurassic World, Furious 7, Minions and Straight Outta Compton.

Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 2 was expected by most to take the top spot at the box office this weekend, but the estimates from Box Office Mojo reveal that the animated sequel actually set a box office record. Hotel Transylvania 2 took in an impressive $47.5 million this weekend, surpassing its predecessor Hotel Transylvania's September opening weekend record of $42.5 million. The sequel opened in 3,754 theaters, over 400 more than the original movie, pulling in a solid $12,653 per-screen average. September isn't typically a huge month for box office receipts, but this animated franchise proves that families will still come out in full force, even though summer is officially over.
Hotel Transylvania 2 brings back original voice cast members Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi and David Spade, with new additions including Keegan Michael Key and Mel Brooks. The animated movie sequel didn't fare terribly well with the nation's critics, »
This review was originally published during our coverage of Lff 2014.
The Keeping Room is ‘past-apocalyptic’ cinema. We like to imagine the end of the world coming with nuclear war, asteroid collision or alien invasion. Here, however, we see it as history, a terrifying world as cruel as The Road or Mad Max, where mankind can only crawl among the ashes, a world that’s already happened.
This particular apocalypse is the American Civil War, and its desperate survivors are three Southern women: sisters Augusta and Louise (Brit Marling and Hailee Steinfeld) and their former slave, Mad (Muna Otaru). With the sister’s parents dead, the women are left to scratch an existence in an empty, isolated farmhouse. Their world is one largely devoid of human life, as nearly every man has become gristle for the Confederate war machine and the women have fled in terror.
Under these extreme circumstances, social contracts have broken down. »

Five years after the Michael Caine vehicle Harry Brown hit theaters, director Daniel Barber has returned to the director’s seat with a revisitation to period drama, which he first explored with his Oscar nominated short The Tonto Woman. With The Keeping Room, he, along with Brit Marling, Sam Worthington, Hailee Steinfeld and newcomer Muna Otaru, relive the end of the American Civil War still firmly wrapped in the fraying husks of racism and sexism, yet his tale, penned by first time screenwriter Julia Hart, sees these barriers burned to the ground in a fit of valiantly feminine retaliation.
Bolstered by a set of strong female performances, Barber’s essentially feminist film premiered at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. I had the opportunity to sit down with the director to discuss how he came to the project, if he had any apprehensions about tackling American racism as a British filmmaker, »
