Anton Yelchin Talks ‘Star Trek 3′, Punk Band Horror ‘Green Room’ – Cannes

20 May 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Jeremy Saulnier's Blue Ruin came to Cannes out of nowhere two years ago to announce the arrival of a new talent looking at film in a different way. He's back, now, channeling Sam Peckinpah with Green Room, a horror thriller that stars Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat and Anton Yelchin. For Yelchin, who stopped by Deadline's Cannes studio at Nikki Beach’s Le Petit Bar to run me through the project, playing a bass player in a punk band seemed like it might be… »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

Cannes Goes Crazy for Jeremy Saulnier's Gruesome Neo-Nazis vs. Punks Horror 'Green Room'

18 May 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Green Room" marks Jeremy Saulnier's second trip to the Quinzaine after 2013 Fipresci-winning sensation "Blue Ruin." A neo-Nazis vs. punk rockers riff on the hillbilly survival films of the 1970s, "Green Room" pits a punk quartet called the Ain't Rights against a gang of white power skinheads who've trapped them in a secluded venue after the rockers witness a horrific act of violence. First a gifted cinematographer, Saulnier's backwater-noir revenge film "Blue Ruin" was a theatrical and VOD success for RADiUS-twc. All eyes will be on Saulnier as "Green Room," a Broad Green Pictures film, awaits Us distribution. The stellar cast includes Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Mark Webber, Joe Cole, Eric Edelstein, Callum Turner, Kai Lennox and "Blue Ruin" star Macon Blair.   Here's what critics are saying so far. Word on the Croisette has been very strong. Indiewire: This movie also »

Cannes 2015: 'Green Room' review

18 May 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Jeremy Saulnier's follows up Blue Ruin (2014) with the gloriously entertaining Green Room (2015), a siege movie that pits pit bulls and murderous Neo-Nazis against a young punk band. The Ain't Rights are a punk band touring the country and desperate for money and gigs. They syphon gas from parked cars and scrounge anything they can get. When a desperately sad lunch time gig at a Mexican restaurant doesn't pay off how they expected they grab the chance to play in some back woods joint, even though they're warned that the group are a bit extreme."Just don't talk about politics," they're told by their connection. Singer Tiger (Callum Turner), guitarist Sam (Alia Shawkat), bassist Pat (Anton Yelchin) and drummer Reece (Joe Cole) load up the van and motor off.

Green Room: First Clip Shows Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots Held at Gunpoint

17 May 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There weren't many low-budget American independent films in 2014 that demanded the attention that Jeremy Saulnier's thrilling, beautifully shot Blue Ruin did (although Soft in the Head, It Felt Like Love, and Josephine Decker's Thou Wast Mild and Lovely are tough competition). So, it's understandable that since Blue Ruin hit theaters and VOD last year, talk of Saulnier's upcoming follow-up, Green Room, has been percolating on high, doubly so considering it has garnered a cast that includes perennial awesome guy Patrick Stewart, alongside Alia Shawkat, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Marc Webber, and Blue Ruin star Macon Blair. After winning the Fipresci Prize at Cannes for Blue Ruin in 2013, Saulnier has returned to Cannes this year with Green Room, which is playing in the Director's Fortnight, looking for distribution or, at the very least, some buzzy word of mouth. In anticipation, a clip from the film has been released, showcasing a tense moment where Yelchin, »

Daily | Cannes 2015 | Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room

17 May 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Jeremy Saulnier "followed up his ultra-low budget debut Murder Party with Blue Ruin, a nifty, beautifully-made twist on the revenge movie that won over not just gorehounds, but also cinephiles," writes Oliver Lyttelton at the Playlist. "And his new film Green Room cements his promise by taking all the strengths of Blue Ruin and building on them, while straightening out some of the weaknesses too." The cast features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole and Callum Turner. We're gathering reviews as they come in. » - David Hudson »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Green Room’

17 May 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two years after making a crimson splash in Cannes with his catgut-taut suspenser “Blue Ruin,” U.S. writer-director Jeremy Saulnier continues his grisly journey across the rainbow with the ultraviolent backwoods horror pic “Green Room.” Following a young group of punk rockers as they scrape, shoot and slash their way out of an Oregon neo-Nazi group’s clutches, this wilfully unpleasant midnight special further demonstrates its helmer’s machete-sharp sense of craft, and puts an interestingly matched ensemble — including an outstanding Imogen Poots — gleefully through the wringer. Characterization and emotional investment, however, are in disappointingly short supply, while crucial tension is permitted to dissipate in an anti-climactic final third. Nevertheless, given the right marketing, this dark, dank “Room” could make plenty of green for a genre-savvy distributor.

After premiering “Blue Ruin” and David Robert Mitchell’s sleeper hit “It Follows” in the last two years, the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes »

Cannes: Punk Rockers Vs. White Supremacists In First Clip From Jeremy Saulnier’s 'The Green Room'

17 May 2015 6:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director of photography-turned-director Jeremy Saulnier had made some films prior to his breakthrough success, but it wasn’t until 2013’s “Blue Ruin” took Cannes — it won Fipresci prize in the Directors' Fortnight selection — and Tiff by storm that he was shot into a must-work-with stratosphere. So his next film, “The Green Room” got interest really fast, attracted a starry cast, and is now gearing up to debut again in the Cannes Directors' Fortnight. The cast includes Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Eric Edelstein, and Kai Lennox. While it’s unclear who plays who in the film, there is a ton of buzz around Stewart taking the part of the head white supremacist. Here’s the official synopsis: In the harrowing crime thriller Green Room, a young punk rock band find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, »
