Fantastic Fest 2015: Green Room is One of the Best Thrillers of the Year

1 October 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Pat (Anton Yelchin) and the rest of his touring punk band The Ain’t Rights have just woken up in a cornfield, a low-impact casualty of late night white-line fever. They’re out of gas and money; their next gig was canceled before they even showed up. Pat, drummer Reece (Joe Cole), bassist Sam (Alia Shawkat) and singer Tiger (Callum Turner) are this close to calling off the disastrous road tour altogether, but a sympathetic promoter at their next stop in Oregon gets them a last-minute gig.

Unfortunately they’ll be playing for a predominantly white supremacist skinhead audience in a ramshackle bar tucked deep in the woods. Pat and company aren’t at all down with the Neo Nazi set, but they won’t have enough money to get home otherwise, so they knuckle up an [Continued ...] »

Fantastic Fest ’15: ‘The Green Room’ – brutal, violent, intense and one of the year’s best

28 September 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Green Room

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Screenplay by Jeremy Saulnier

2015, USA

If one was to look at filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier’s filmography, he has three motion pictures to his credit and the first two could not be more different than The Green Room. Murder Party is a hilarious, low-budget, Halloween-centric comedy that also serves as an acerbic satire of the art world. Blue Ruin is a deep, tense, suspenseful revenge neo-noir with Oscar caliber performances. Saulnier’s latest film, Green Room, almost serves to fill in the gap between the ridiculous comedy of Murder Party and the deadly serious drama of Blue Ruin, in its own bizarre way.

The film follows a punk band, the Ain’t Rights, on the tail-end leg of their tour. Living out of their van, the group travels from venue to venue with siphon gasoline and prefers to book concert dates through old school »

Green Room Review [Fantastic Fest 2015]

26 September 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s not often that I succumb to a movie’s hype before walking into a screening, but Green Room is a glorious exception. Jeremy Saulnier earned my respect by creating Murder Party and Blue Ruin, two artfully breathtaking indie darlings, so Green Room shot up my must-watch list based on Saulnier’s name recognition alone. Then he announced a cast including Patrick Stewart, Macon Blair, Anton Yelchin, and Imogen Poots, which caused my simmering excitement to boil over. But the hype train continued to roll strong, as stellar, overwhelmingly positive reviews out of Tiff were the icing on Saulnier’s punk-rock cake. Anticipation had climaxed, and I couldn’t help but walk into my Fantastic Fest screening of Green Room expecting a powerful genre experience that could challenge the bleak humanity of Blue Ruin

Green Room delivered all of that, and then some.

Idris Elba talks Star Trek Beyond villain role

26 September 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a chat with MTV to promote his new movie Beasts of No Nation, British actor Idris Elba has offered up a few words on the currently-in-production Star Trek Beyond, which sees him taking on the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise as the main villain.

Simon Pegg and the team have written a very interesting, complex journey for my character. You’ve never seen me play a character like this. I think Star Trek has prided themselves as being quite classic when it comes to villains. He’s a guy who wants to end the world, there’s no doubt about that. But in this version of the film, there’s a slightly different twist to that. It’s quite an interesting journey, which I think is groundbreaking for the franchise. But, it still keeps with the ’classic bad guy is a classic bad guy’ tone.”

'Star Trek 3' Villain Is Groundbreaking Says Idris Elba

25 September 2015 5:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Idris Elba entered discussions to play an unspecified character in Paramount's Star Trek Beyond back in March, it was always rumored that he is playing the main villain. While we still don't know his character's name, actor/screenwriter Simon Pegg revealed earlier this year that Idris Elba is playing a brand new character who hasn't been established in any of the previous Star Trek movies or TV shows. While promoting his upcoming movie Beasts of No Nation, Idris Elba revealed to MTV that he has never played a character like this before.

"Simon [Pegg] and the team have written a very interesting, complex journey for my character. You've never seen me play a character like this."

Idris Elba confirmed in July that his unnamed character has a "confrontation" with Zachary Quinto's Spock, although Simon Pegg has confirmed that Idris Elba's character is not a Klingon. It's worth noting, »

Zooey Deschanel in “The Driftless Area” at the Aruba International Film Festival: another spot for indie film

23 September 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There’s no way around it folks…it’s truly festival season! Between the recently concluded Telluride Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival as well as the currently gearing up New York Film Festival, Oscar hopefuls are finding places to screen everywhere. Not all fests are designed to be Academy Award contender showcases though, with some meant to highlight independent film. The Sundance Film Festival is the cream of that crop (with some titles there developing into awards players), with the Tribeca Film Festival another of them. Next month though, a smaller fest is screening an interesting flick that I wanted to mention quickly. It’s the Aruba International Film Festival and the opening screening is The Driftless Area. I saw it back at Tribeca and enjoyed the work from Zooey Deschanel there, so I wanted to give it a moment in the sun. The film is an indie »

22 September 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As a first time attendee of the New York Film Festival, it’s difficult not to be overwhelmed by this year’s selection of films. I’ve been mentally preparing for the slew of world premieres and other festival favorites that will surely play a crucial part in the upcoming awards season.

So without further delay, here are the film’s that I’m looking forward to the most at Nyff.

'Star Trek 3' Gets a New Release Date

18 September 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Trekkies who are impatiently awaiting the arrival of Star Trek Beyond will have to wait a few more weeks. Paramount Pictures has shifted the sequel's release date from July 8, 2016 to July 22, 2016. A two-week shift may seem inconsequential, but, this shift means you'll have a better chance of seeing the movie in the IMAX format next summer.

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. has secured every IMAX theater for the release of Tarzan on July 1, 2016, which would have meant that Star Trek Beyond couldn't get an IMAX release. Shifting the release to July 22 means there will be an IMAX release for this Star Trek sequel, but it isn't known if Paramount plans on securing every IMAX theater or not. Whether or not this will impact the box office results remains to be seen, but the strategy has already worked on a different movie.

Paramount employed the same release strategy with the summer blockbuster Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. »

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult’s New Movie Will Make You Want to Make Out

18 September 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kristen Stewart's new movie Equals pictures a sterile, Gattica- or Divergent-like future, of white and silver environs and white-on-white uniforms, in which the world's remaining population after a cataclysmic event has been forbidden from expressing emotion or touching other humans. However, this is a movie from director Drake Doremus, whose best-known work, 2011's Like Crazy, with Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin, explored the flourishing of young love and the tolls of long-distance relationships, so you know where this is headed as soon as you see Nicholas Hoult's piercing blue eyes take notice of Kristen Stewart's quivering hands. Yes, I'm talking about the steamiest small-space make-out sessions since Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano in that boiler room.Okay, I just rewatched those make-out sessions from My So Called Life, and they really weren't that erotic, or that plentiful — 1994 network television, go figure — but the tension was real.

Star Trek Beyond pushed back 3 weeks

17 September 2015 11:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer for the third instalment of Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek series, with Deadline reporting that Star Trek Beyond has been pushed back three weeks from July 8th 2016 to July 22nd 2016.

The release date switch puts Beyond in direct competition with Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur and the animated sequel Ice Age 5, although it does mean that Paramount will be able to secure IMAX screenings for the film, with David YatesTarzan having secured these screens in early July.

Star Trek Beyond’s release date slips

17 September 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There’s going to be a small delay to Star Trek Beyond’s release date, simply to be able to get space on IMAX screens…

Production is continuing on the next Star Trek movie, Star Trek Beyond, that sees Fast & Furious helmer Justin Lin directing this time around. Doug Jung and Simon Pegg have written the script, and the cast features Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Pegg, Idris Elba, Anton Yelchin and more.

The plan had been to release Star Trek Beyond on July 8th 2016, but Paramount has hit a problem. Simply, the film wouldn’t be able to get space on IMAX screens in the Us if it kept to that date. Warner Bros’ upcoming Tarzan film has them all booked up at that time.

Demonstrating the growing power of IMAX to box office, Paramount has thus delayed the release of the new Star Trek movie – in the »
