Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

Hidden Figures Wins Box Office Weekend #2 with $20.4M

15 January 2017 12:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Often times, if two movies are less than $1 million apart when the box office estimates are released, those movies will swap places when the actual numbers arrive on Monday. Last weekend, it looked like Rogue One would repeat atop the box office with $21.9 million, with the expanding Hidden Figures following just behind with $21.8 million. When the actual figures were released on Monday, Hidden Figures ended up on top with $22.8 million, just ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with $22.06 million. This weekend, Hidden Figures managed to expand even further, repeating atop the box office for the second weekend in a row with $20.4 million, in a weekend where two more expanding movies didn't even crack the top 10.

This weekend, both the true story adaptation Hidden Figures and Rogue One went up against three new movies, Paramount's Monster Trucks, Stx Entertainment's The Bye Bye Man and Open Road Films' Sleepless. There »

Review: ‘Sleepless’ is a Generic Thriller That Runs on Auto-Pilot

14 January 2017 12:30 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If Sleepless doesn’t seem like it is doing anything new it’s, well, not. A remake of Frederic Jardin’s 2011 thriller Nuit blanche (Sleepless Night) rebooted as a low-rent Luc Besson-style affair with half the wit, Sleepless isn’t an unbearable experience. It’s just not a terribly original film, one that seems to suffer a fate like many Hollywood-ized imports taken on by foreign directors: they bring all the style, but leave behind the substance and wit. As often happens, something is lost in translation, even if the absurd hand-to-hand combat and action “thrills” in a contained setting remain intact.

Swedish director Baran bo Odar helms from a script by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton) that, truth be told, could have been adapted into a tense little thriller in the right hands. One sequence involving a stabbing had me nostalgic for Park Chan-wook and what he might have brought to the table. »

Movie Review – Patriots Day (2016)

13 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Patriots Day, 2016.

Directed by Peter Berg.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Monaghan, Christopher O’Shea, Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Wolff, Themo Melikidze, Jimmy O. Yang, Jake Picking, and Melissa Benoist.

Synopsis:

An account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis’s actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it.

Boston sure does band together in the most touching and strangest of ways. Scene setup: A small army of special forces (along with Boston and Watertown Police Departments) are all posted up around an isolated neighborhood backyard boat which is believed to be the whereabouts of the second marathon bomber’s hiding location, and don’t forget, a middle-aged community woman also on a rooftop with a rifle pointed squarely at the target. It’s certainly an unexpected and equally hilarious sight to behold, »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ Soars (Again) as Ben Affleck’s ‘Live by Night,’ ‘Monster Trucks’ Tank

13 January 2017 12:59 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hidden Figures” is dominating Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” and a monster-budgeted family pic for its second win in a row at the North American box office with at least $24 million at 3,286 sites during the four-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

Fox’s historical drama, starring Taraji P. Henson, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer, is emerging as the clear leader. “Patriots Day” is eyeing about $18 million in its expansion to wide release, just ahead of “La La Land” and “Sing” which look in the $15 million to $17 million range.

Stx’s launch of horror film “The Bye Bye Man” will be a player as it’s outperforming expectations with forecasts in the $14 million to $16 million range. The fifth weekend of Disney-Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is also heading for the same territory and should finish the weekend with around $500 million in its first month. »

Film Review: Boston is Strong Again in Reliable ‘Patriots Day’

13 January 2017 12:51 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In the context of history, and the way information is consumed these days, the Boston Marathon Bombing in 2013 seems both like yesterday and a long time ago. Director Peter Berg’s “Patriots Day” is the first film account of that horrid week, and features Mark Wahlberg.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Wahlberg, along with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, are the unofficial show biz mayors of Boston, and inspired a wicked parody by Seth Meyers called “Boston Accents.” The subject matter of “Patriot Days” creates an immunity towards commentary on the Boston accents in the movie, but there are still a few moments that are reminders (seriously, download that sketch on YouTube). Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights”) is a yeoman director who tells a straightforward story, and succeeds in re-creating the events of that week without too much hyperbole. It was a frightening time for Boston and the country, but the results of »

Movie Review: Jamie Foxx is a dirty cop in the lean, mean, and completely implausible Sleepless

13 January 2017 12:15 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Sleepless stinks of disrepute: generic title, mid-January release, no advance screenings. But it’s not like today’s Hollywood has a surplus of watchable B-pictures. A beat-for-beat remake of a relatively diverting French thriller called Sleepless Night, the film shifts the action from a nightclub in the Paris suburbs to a hotel casino off the Vegas strip and ramps up the sadism, but otherwise follows the same breathless, potentially nihilistic narrative. A seemingly dirty cop named Vincent (Jamie Foxx) rips off the wrong guys, who kidnap his teenage son and hold him for ransom in exchange for their missing coke, which they are supposed to deliver to a murderous crew of traffickers the same night—a dog-eat-dog situation made worse by the arrival of internal affairs investigator Bryant (Michelle Monaghan), who intends to catch Vincent red-handed. As to the question of whether Vincent is really that bad or just deep »

Sleepless Review

13 January 2017 11:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Someday, when you least expect it, you’ll hear someone singing the praises of Sleepless. Not now, but once it inevitably enters syndication rotations on TBS or Fxx. That’s where this dad-thriller is destined to find glory – playing in the background during chores or between naps. In a theater, Baran bo Odar’s darkened kidnapping thriller charges forward like a billion other Taken wannabes before it. But without investment or attentive demand? You can come in-and-out of this Sleepless Night remake without being weighed down by the heavy generics that plod with sluggish commitment. That’s not meant to be a backhanded compliment, just a realistic assessment and expectation-setter.

Jamie Foxx stars as Vincent Downs, a dirty Vegas cop who gets tangled-up with the wrong underworld bosses. His partner, Sean Cass (T.I.), hears of a 25 kilo drug shipment coming in, so the two pull an off-hours smash-and-grab heist. Unfortunately, »

‘Sleepless’ Review: Jamie Foxx Stars In a Very Tired Remake Of a Modern Action Masterpiece

13 January 2017 7:53 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The listless, shoddy sort of remake where it feels like all of the characters have already seen the movie they’re in, “Sleepless” reduces one of the best action films of the 21st century into one of the most benign. Released in 2011, Frederic Jardin’s severely under-seen “Sleepless Night” is a French-language brawler with universal appeal — bruising, relentless, and blissfully frenetic, it remains a masterclass in how to layer cinematic mayhem so that every new punch lands where the last one left off.

Needless to say, a lot has been lost in translation. Directed by Baran bo Odar (“The Silence”) and designed to swindle money from starry-eyed January theatergoers who’ve been shut out of “Hidden Figures” or “La La Land” but might as well see something because they’ve already trekked to the multiplex and paid the babysitter for the night, this lifeless photocopy proves that American exceptionalism is »

New Red Band Trailer for Action Movie 'Sleepless' Starring Jamie Foxx

12 January 2017 9:03 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm gunna make this right." Open Road Films has unveiled one final red band trailer for Sleepless, the American remake of the French action film Sleepless Night. This violent action movie stars Jamie Foxx as an undercover cop who angrily heads into a nightclub to search for his kidnapped son. The cast features Michelle Monaghan, David Harbour, Dermot Mulroney, Gabrielle Union, Scoot McNairy, T.I. and Sala Baker. This isn't much of a red band trailer, there is barely anything to it, which is probably a metaphor for this movie. Early word is that it's really bad. You're better off just watching the original film. Here's the new red band trailer (+ poster) for Baran bo Odar's Sleepless, direct from YouTube: A cop with a connection to the criminal underworld scours a nightclub in search of his kidnapped son. Based on the 2011 French film Nuit Blanche, also known as Sleepless Night. »

Film Review: ‘Sleepless’

12 January 2017 9:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Sleepless,” a stylishly hollow crime thriller set in Las Vegas, Jamie Foxx plays an undercover cop named Vincent Downs who is up to his goatee in Big Problems. He and his partner (played by the rapper T.I.) just killed two crooks they shouldn’t have, and they also ripped off a more dangerous drug dealer than the one they thought they were working. Vincent is now carrying 25 kilos of cocaine (street value: $7 million) that could get him killed. To secure and retrieve the drugs, Stanley Rubino (Dermot Mulroney), a natty weasel of a casino owner, has kidnapped Vincent’s 16-year-old son, Thomas (Octavius J. Johnson). But since Vincent is supposed to be delivering the kid to a high-school football game, he has to keep lying to his ex-wife (Gabrielle Union) about the son’s whereabouts (it beats saying, “Uh, sorry, he’s tied up in a kitchen closet somewhere »
