Star Trek Beyond Review

21 July 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a cruel summer. In Nice last week, a truck tore through a crowd of revelers, killing at least 84 and grievously wounding scores more, leaving a battered if not broken France in its wake. In Turkey, around the same time, a military coup terrorized and rapidly destabilized the nation, killing almost 250 and resulting in thousands of arrests. In America this month, video footage of police officers gunning down two black men reignited the painful, necessary mission of ending police brutality and addressing systemic racism in a country that’s always been obfuscated by its dehumanizing darkness; its disorienting, devastating impact was also present in Dallas earlier this month, where five cops died during an attack by a sniper. And packaged in that brutal assault was another one of America’s most enduring enigmas: how to tackle preventing gun massacres in a society obsessed with the weapons that facilitate them. »

'Star Trek Beyond' Review: The Franchise's Final Frontier

20 July 2016 7:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Despite the futuristic tilt in the title, Star Trek Beyond works best when it boldly goes retro. The third chapter in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, with J.J. Abrams ceding the captain's chair to Justin Lin, is plenty fast and furious (Lin directed four of those adrenalized F&F babies). But it also openly gives its heart to what came before; any Trekkie that doesn't choke up at this 50th-anniversary edition is no longer in the club. Feelings run deep stemming from the death last year of original Spock Leonard Nimoy »

Oscar Isaac joins Mark Rylance in Steven Spielberg’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara

17 July 2016 5:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While 2015 marked a breakout year for Oscar Isaac, this year has been a rather quiet one for the actor (as far as movie releases go), with the exception of his villainous appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse. But with a slate of big films, which now includes Steven Spielberg’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, in the works, 2017 and beyond are looking rather ambitious.

As Variety reports, Isaac has just been confirmed to join Mark Rylance in Spielberg’s forthcoming religious drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara. The story follows a young Jewish boy living in Bologna, Italy in 1858, who was taken from his family by force and later raised as a Christian. The struggle to free him becomes wrapped in a larger political struggle between national governments and the Papacy. Isaac, who’s role is not yet known, will star opposite Rylance, who’s set to play the role of Pope Pius IX. »

Oscar Isaac To Star Opposite Mark Rylance In Steven Spielberg Thriller The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Montara

15 July 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting The Force Awakens and Ex Machina star Oscar Isaac has inked a deal to join The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Montara, where he will be starring opposite Mark Rylance of The Bfg.

From Giant Country to a pulsing Italian thriller, it’s understood Rylance will reteam with Steven Spielberg on the project, itself a big-screen rendition of David Kertzer’s eponymous novel. Pulling from his regular pool of talent, Spielberg’s adaptation will be penned by Tony Kushner, who worked with the illustrious director across both Lincoln and Munich.

When it comes to Oscar Isaac’s casting, Variety didn’t disclose which role the actor has landed, but it is refreshing that Isaac is pursuing intriguing projects – Edgardo Montara, not to mention Alex Garland’s Annihilation – as a tonic to the blockbuster fare of the Star Wars universe.
