Former Film Engine’s Navid McIIhargey Partners With German Financiers, Acquires First Project ‘The Feud’

The Keeping Room Review [Lff 2014]

15 October 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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. For one, former slave Mad is now the sister’s equal, »

How can Terminator: Genisys succeed?

15 October 2014 3:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's got a daft name, and the last Terminator film wasn't exactly a resounding success. So how can Terminator: Genisys win us round?

I've been a huge fan of the Terminator franchise ever since I watched the first film at a shockingly young age. It's fair to say that, being the wee boy I was on my first few viewings, I struggled to understand everything I was seeing, but something about the film connected with me enough to keep me coming back again and again. As I grew up, I started to recognise the film's strengths: the compelling storytelling, amazing action (robots! lasers!), and likeable characters, to name just a few.

By the time Terminator 2: Judgment Day rolled around, I'd watched the original film many times, and fallen deeply in love with it. The sequel blew me away, and was also my first introduction to the horrors of nuclear »

The Teen Girl Assassin Subgenre Refuses to Go Down Without A Fight

14 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It looks like the totally hypothetical Cinematic Teen Hit Girl Club is getting a brand new member. Deadline reports that The Giver star Odeya Rush has signed on to star in Hunter’s Prayer, a Jonathan Mostow-directed action-thriller about “a young girl who teams up with the assassin hired to wipe out her family to find the person responsible.” Oh, a buddy flick! Sam Worthington is already on board to play said assassin, who helps Rush’s Ella “navigate the tangled web of hitmen and thugs on her quest for justice.” And we thought you could just PayPal hitmen money.  Rush now joins a subgenre of films that center on guns, girls and (screw any attempts at alliteration) just plain illegal activities. And yet, said subgenre isn’t nearly as bankable as it once (oh so briefly) was, so why do we keep getting films about gun-toting teens with attitude? (Don »

13 October 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

But he develops a bond with the young woman and ends up helping her track down and punish the person who is actually responsible for the killings.Mostow took over the project from Phillip Noyce, and the script, adapted from Kevin Wignall’s novel, has been through the word processors of Paul Leyden, Oren Moverman, John Brancato and Michael Ferris. Shooting is scheduled to start next month here in the UK. »

Lff 2014: The Keeping Room Review

13 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Daniel Barber

Cast: Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld, Muna Otaru, Sam Worthington, Kyle Soller

Running time: 95 minutes

Certificate: Tbc

Synopsis: Left without men in the dying days of the American Civil War, three Southern women – two sisters and one African-American slave – must fight to defend their home and themselves from two rogue soldiers who have broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army.

Protection, survival and gunmanship are the name of the game in Daniel Barber’s taut Civil War drama The Keeping Room.

Augusta (Brit Marling) and Louise (Hailee Steinfeld) are sisters doing it for themselves deep in the heat of the American South. There’s not a whole lot to do other than tend crops and wander about the woods though; the land around them is abandoned and all the men have left to fight in the Civil War, including their father and brother. Alongside the family’s African American slave, »

DVD Review – Sabotage (2014)

16 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s post political return to film has been a bit of a mixed bag thus far. Aside from a couple of token appearances in the first two Expendables films, his films have all tanked (including his token appearance in The Expendables 3). That’s not to say his output hasn’t been without merits. Arnold’s first proper re-introduction came in the simple, yet highly enjoyable The Last Stand, a film which grows on me every time I see it, and deserved to be watched by more than the half dozen people who actually bothered to see it in cinemas. »
