Aubrey Plaza’s Comedy ‘Ingrid Goes West’ to Close La Film Festival

16 May 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The La Film Festival has chosen Aubrey Plaza’s dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” as its closing night film on June 22.

Ingrid Goes West” is directed by Matt Spicer and written by Spicer and David Branson Smith. The film, which also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen, premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

Plaza’s character Ingrid Thornberg reacts to her mother’s death and a series of self-inflicted setbacks by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession Taylor Sloane (played by Elizabeth Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the facade begins to crack in both women’s lives.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Pulls Off the Impossible: Solving Marvel’s Villain Problem

8 May 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Not to blow your minds with my superpowers of perception or anything, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a villain problem. By this point, that’s part of its DNA — it’s like saying that Brian De Palma movies have split diopter shots or that Christopher Nolan movies have a white male character who has to crack a code in order to forgive himself for his wife’s death, or that DC movies have utterly deranged defenders who have already stopped reading this article in favor of tweeting me death threats. Flimsy and forgettable bad guys are as much a part of Marvel movies as the quips and spandex. They’re not a bug, they’re not a feature, they’re just a fact.

Supervillains are only as interesting as the heroes they’re forced to fight against, and the Marvel squad has had a pretty rough draw in that department. »

All Hail Elizabeth Debicki's High Priestess Ayesha in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

4 May 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When Ayesha, high priestess of the Sovereign, first pops up on screen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it's electric. Sitting in all of her gilded glory, the leader of the xenophobic, gold-skinned race of aliens - who are quite literally pod people - stares down at Peter Quill, Rocket, Drax, and Gamora from her throne with a mix of detached interest and chilling scorn; she's like a scientist preparing to slice open her next specimen. Although the true villain of the story emerges later on, it's the scenes with Ayesha that cement the towering golden goddess as the film's campier, more entertaining foil for Star Lord and company. So who do we have to thank for this metallic Hbic? Twenty-six-year-old Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki. She joins Sylvester Stallone and Pom Klementieff as one of the cosmic sequel's best new additions, but it's hardly her first role. Debicki got »

Here's Where 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Fits Into the Marvel Cinematic Universe

3 May 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's been a few years since our favorite ragtag group of intergalactic misfits united to guard the galaxy and a lot has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since then -- villainous robots and dimension-hopping sorcerers and superheroes who talk to ants. Thankfully, the second installment -- the "more unique, more daring" Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 -- picks up only a few months after Vol. 1, and you have this handy Q&A to answer any lingering Qs you may have before it hits theaters.

"Peter still has to deal with Rocket and he still has to deal with Drax and Gamora," Chris Pratt, aka Peter Quill aka the legendary outlaw, Star-Lord, said on the Atlanta, Georgia, set of Vol. 2. "There's still a lot of fun to be had there -- he certainly doesn't have a mastery on how to be a leader of this group. But I think he feels like the leader at the »

Jason Sudeikis, Timothy Olyphant and Lee Pace set for Driven

30 April 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Sudeikis, Timothy Olyphant and Lee Pace have signed on to star in Driven, a feature film based around an FBI operation to entrap car designer John DeLorean, Deadline has revealed.

Driven will see Pace as DeLorean, who – desperate to secure funding for his DeLorean Motor Company – is caught up in an FBI sting operation where he agreed to bankroll a cocaine smuggling operation. Sudeikis will play con-man turned FBI informant Jim Hoffman, with Olyphant as his handler.

“All filmmakers are suckers for a good story and this is a great one – and as yet, untold,” said director Nick Hamm (The Hole, Killing Bono). “It’s about ambition, success and failure in a decade where everything began to change. It’s also an intelligent and personal drama about fighting for personal success. An edge-of-your-seat, character-driven and comic wink to the world of power suits, discos and vice. Above all, it’s damn good fun. »

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda and More Take Part in the Climate March

30 April 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In what’s become a semi-weekly tradition, tens of thousands of people took to the streets in protest of the Trump administration and its policies yesterday. The People’s Climate March took place in Washington, D.C. and several other cities, counting several celebrities among its high-profile supporters and attendees: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jane Fonda, Kerry Washington, Jared Leto. All of them had something to say about it.

DiCaprio has long been vocal about the urgency of combating climate change — other than acting and dating supermodels, you might say it’s his raison d’être — and has produced the documentaries “Before the Flood” and “The 11th Hour.” “Honored to join Indigenous leaders and native peoples as they fight for climate justice,” he tweeted yesterday. “Join me in standing with them.”

Newswire: Timothy Olyphant and Jason Sudeikis are going to chase Lee Pace in new movie

28 April 2017 11:11 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Cannes will be hit with a huge dose of handsome next month, as Deadline reports that Timothy Olyphant, Lee Pace, and Jason Sudeikis are set to star in a movie about the FBI’s real-life sting on car designer John DeLorean. Sudeikis and Olyphant will team up, Catch Me If You Can-style, with the former playing a con-artist-turned-informant who helps Olyphant’s FBI agent get his man. Pace will play the Dmc founder, who, in addition to working on cutting-edge automobile designs, tried to save his failing business by trafficking cocaine. The FBI set up a sting to catch him handling 59 pounds of coke, but the organization’s efforts were just interpreted as entrapment at DeLorean’s trial, and he was found not guilty. The film is set to begin filming in Puerto Rico this September.

What Guardians of the Galaxy Would Look Like as a DC Movie

24 April 2017 10:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As fans get ready for the highly-anticipated sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, many are revisiting the original 2014 blockbuster that started it all. A new fan trailer has surfaced that puts a much different spin on this unique superhero movie, envisioning what the colorful Marvel adventure may have looked like as a DC Comics adaptation. All it takes, apparently, is the selection of some creepy music, and the right scenes that take all of the heart and humor out of Guardians of the Galaxy, which is now painted as a much more dreary outing.

This video was created by YouTube channel Exploring the Internet, which uses the song "Bughuul" from a group known as Reptilium, a rather dark heavy metal track that was inspired by the horror movie Sinister. This song sets the proper tone for the video, which begins with a young Peter Quill watching his mother die, »

Dynamic Duos Unite in New Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Posters

11 April 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When you have a team that continues to grow like the Guardians of the Galaxy, who will have a few new members when the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters this May, sometimes it's best to break it down into pairs of two. Today we have four new posters which splits up this superhero team into dynamic duos. These posters feature Star-Lord and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) together, along with, fittingly, the two blue-skinned characters Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), longtime partners Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) and finally the unique pairing of Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) alongside newcomer Mantis (Pom Klementieff).

These international posters, which debuted on Imp Awards, feature mostly the pairings one would expect, for those who have been following this hit franchise. It's been quite clear from the early trailers that there has been some tension between »

Book of Henry Trailer Arrives from the Director of Jurassic World

Focus Features has released the first trailer and two new posters for the upcoming drama The Book of Henry, which is set for release on June 16, 2017. This family drama marks just the third film for director Colin Trevorrow, who started his career with the offbeat indie hit Safety Not Guaranteed, which he parlayed into making one of the biggest blockbuster sequels ever with 2015's Jurassic World. The Book of Henry marks another drastic departure for the filmmaker, veering into the family drama genre in what could be one of the sleeper hits of the summer.

Jaeden Lieberher in First Trailer for Trevorrow's 'The Book of Henry'

30 March 2017 9:37 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We have to make it better. There's only one way to stop it." Focus Features has debuted the first trailer for the film The Book of Henry, the latest from director Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed, Jurassic World). Unlike his past two films, this one is a more conventional drama with real people (and no sci-fi). The Book of Henry is about a single mother raising two boys, one of who happens to be a genius. The cast includes Jacob Tremblay and Jaeden Lieberher as the two boys, along with Naomi Watts, Lee Pace, Sarah Silverman, Maddie Ziegler, Dean Norris, and Bobby Moynihan. This seems like a very nice, charming drama until - wait, Naomi Watts is a sniper now?! As odd as that twist is, I still want to watch this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Colin Trevorrow's The Book of Henry, direct from YouTube: The Book of Henry »
