'The Boxtrolls' brings stop-motion animation back into the light

28 August 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

While the bulk of modern cinematic animation lives inside computers, with Pixar-style CG characters dominating the box-office, Laika has carved out its own creative space, with advanced stop-motion animated films like Coraline and ParaNorman that are breathtaking to behold. With The Boxtrolls, the old-school technology is as pristine and delightful as ever, and author Alan Snow’s literary characters spring to vivid life. Game of ThronesIsaac Hempstead Wright voices Eggs, an orphan human child who is raised by a band of trash-collecting underground creatures, and Ben Kingsley gives the proper snarl to Archibald Snatcher, who wants to exterminate the »

Zod and Beast Search for Water in Post-Apocalyptic Young Ones Trailer

25 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Man of Steel” villain Michael Shannon and “The X-Men’s” Nicolas Hoult team up to save the world in Jake Paltrow’s post-apocalyptic “Young Ones.” Or at least, they’re trying to save their dry stretch of the wastelands. Now all they need is a little bit of water… Check out the first trailer for Paltrow’s film, which sort of just showed up out of nowhere. Or maybe it’s been hiding itself until now. Either/or. It looks pretty good. Like Hoult’s upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road,” minus all the crazy stunt driving and, well, crazy people. This one looks all introspective and such. Set in the future when water is hard to find a teenage boy sets out to protect his family and survive. Starring Nicolas Hoult, Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Aimee Mullins. Drying up in limited release this October 17th. »

Enter Flem with his designs on Ernest's daughter, Mary, and his hope to take back their land, which his father had once owned in the heyday of early 21st Century industrial farming. »

Trailer and Poster for Sci-Fi Western 'Young Ones' Starring Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult

23 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Screen Media has revealed the first trailer and poster for Young Ones, a dystopian, sci-fi western written and directed by Jake Paltrow and starring Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit McPhee. The studio's description of the flick is a bit lofty saying it "inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that's steeped deeply in the values of the American West." Big talk, can it live up to itc Set for release on October 17, the pic is set in a near future in which water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships. The land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, barren planet. The hardened survivors of the loss of Earth's precious resources scrape and struggle. Ernest Holm »

Trailer for the Sci-Fi Western Young Ones with Michael Shannon

21 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This sci-fi wester called Young Ones looks like an incredible film. The movie is set in near the future where water is very scarce. A teenage boy sets out on a journey to protect his family and survive. The film comes from writer and director Jake Paltrow, and it's "told in three chapters, which inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that’s steeped deeply in the values of the American West." 

Not only does it have a great story, but it has an amazing cast, as well, that includes Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. I'm really excited about this movie, and you can read the synopsis for it below:

Trailers: Nightcrawler, Blizzard, Young

21 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jake Gyllenhaal goes gritty in "Nightcrawler," a film about a man who joins the rather unethical world of seedy freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. After some strange teasers, a more straight forward full trailer has arrived and promises a gritty drama.

It looks like a fun turn from Gyllenhaal, but even more appealing is the glimpses of Rene Russo back in what looks to be a juicy supporting role. Aside from her all too brief cameos in the "Thor" films, Russo has been away from the screen for a decade so it's great to see her back.

Indie filmmaker Gregg Araki returns with "White Bird in a Blizzard," a new drama starring "Divergent" actress Shailene Woodley alongside the likes of Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett. Woodley plays a teenager who deals with her mother's disappearance while coming into her own, and »

Trailer for sci-fi/western ‘Young Ones’

21 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Set the near future where water is more precious than gold, farmer Ernest Holm has to defend his family for forces both external and internal in Jake Paltrow’s Young Ones. Starring the always great Michael Shannon and Hollywood’s next generation of up-and-comers Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee as his children and Nicholas Hoult as Fanning’s ambitious and possible bad influence boyfriend. The film looks like it could be an excellent throwback to classic westerns as many of the troupes of the genre can be found in the trailer, but it is given an extra layer with the science fiction commentary. The film will be released later this year on October 17th.

Young Ones Trailer Features Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult in a Fight for Water and Land

21 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Screen Media Films has released the Young Ones trailer online.  The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where water has become scarce and the only hope for a family becomes an irrigation pipeline that can revitalize their land.  This conflict sets off a battle between the family's patriarch Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) and Flem Lever, a young man (Nicholas Hoult) looking to romance Ernest's daughter Mary (Elle Fanning).  I caught Young Ones at Sundance, and it was one of the most frustrating movies I've seen in some time.  Taken at its individual elements—visuals, performances, structure—it's incredible.  But these parts never built to an emotional impact for me, and it was a struggle to figure out why.  I hope other viewers have more of a connection with the picture.  At the very least, it's a worthwhile curiosity. Hit the jump to check out the Young Ones trailer and poster. »

Second Trailer for Jake Paltrow's Dusty, Impressive Sci-Fi 'Young Ones'

21 August 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I never saw this land when it was green, before the drought came." Following some short teases from France and a very brief domestic trailer, we finally get a much better look at the ambitious sci-fi western Young Ones. Director Jake Paltrow has created an intimate sci-fi world that also has a subtly wide scope for what lies beyond our characters who are plagued by a seemingly endless drought. Michael Shannon attempts to keep his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and daughter (Elle Fanning) safe and grounded as the society around them, including the untrustworthy Nicholas Hoult, is getting more desperate all the time. Here's the full theatrical trailer for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones, originally from Apple: Young Ones is written and directed by Jake Paltrow. Set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, the land has withered into something wretched. »

Watch: Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning And More Battle For Water In New Trailer For 'Young Ones'

21 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A film that had our own Rodrigo Perez, "thinking about, chewing on and lingering [on]" after seeing it at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, "Young Ones" seems like the kind of smart, original movie that genre fans should flip for. And a new trailer is here to take you into the dusty, treacherous world conjured by director Jake Paltrow. Featuring a great cast including Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the story is centered around the battle for water, made more complicated as family dynamics and relationships also come into play. Here's the official synopsis:  Young Ones is set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, one that dictates everything from the macro of political policy to the detailed micro of interpersonal family and romantic relationships.  The land has withered into something wretched.

Females On Film: Ranking the summer's biggest box office winners based on lady roles

20 August 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Films with great women’s roles aren’t always great films. Films with poor female representation aren’t necessarily bad films. But poorly written female roles will always be a problem for cinema so long as they continue to persist. The damsel in distress. Angel-whore. The token girl. Trophy wives. Mother, daughter, sister. The unconditional love interest. These are among the popular clichés most frequently applied to female characters as they’re written on the page. Some films are so desperate for conflict that they just keep going to the well without altering the mold. Have women not earned the right by now to play more villains, complicated lovers, a-holes, The Best Friends, soldiers, comic reliefs or leads? Can a woman be sexy in a film and still have a great role? Yes. Give her agency. Can a woman support other characters but still have a great role? Yes. Keep her vital. »

'Young Ones' poster: Michael Shannon soaks up screen in parched Western

19 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Whether it’s a Krypton fascist, an ice-blooded hitman, or a conflicted Prohibition-era G-man, Michael Shannon is accustomed to playing menacing. But in Young Ones, the new dystopian sci-fi Western that premiered at Sundance in January, he gets to show another side.

“People are used to seeing Mike play very intense, dangerous characters, but I think he’s much more of a classic movie star than maybe people even realize,” director Jake Paltrow said before the film’s premiere. “I think what you’ll see in Mike is a warmth that maybe you haven’t seen in a lot of things—in this, »

Elle Fanning Sexy Dress Blows Away HFPA Event, And She’s 16! (Photos!)

Elle Fanning, the 16-year-old sister of actress Dakota Fanning, looked like she was skipping her teenybopper phase and leaping right into adulthood at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association dinner last night (Aug. 14). She was ultra sexy in red. Fanning wore a structured red Vivienne Westwood strapless gown that probably would her kicked out of her High School prom. But she looked liked she belonged among the Hollywood sirens who attended the event. She even made bombshell Sofia Vergara look drab in her more conservative red dress. ...Read More »
