Tracers Is the Best Parkour-Based Action-Romance with Taylor Lautner You'll See All Year

24 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Bike-messenger boy meets girl, joins her NYC gang of parkour-ing thieves, and winds up in formulaic trouble in Daniel Benmayor's Tracers, a by-the-books B movie only notable for its energetic action choreography. In debt to a loan shark, Cam (Taylor Lautner) ditches cycling in favor of hopping, skipping, and jumping around Manhattan after meeting Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos), a beauty in league with other one-dimensional urban-athlete twentysomethings who pull off daring heists while dressed like ninjas. Cam is the usual good guy in a bad spot, and his need for cash drives him to join their crew, whose leader, Miller (Adam Rayner), likes to spout faux-philosophical nonsense about striving for new "plateaus." Of course, what initially seems great to Cam even »

Tracers Review

24 March 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A good movie is like a restaurant that serves quality food and lots of it. You can gorge yourself and there will still be plenty to take home. Some of my most distinct movie memories aren’t from watching films, but talking about them afterwards. Cinema brings diverse people into a single place for a communal experience. That’s why when you watch a movie by yourself at home you miss out on half of the pleasure of cinema. If a movie is really good or really bad, at least there is always something to say.

After the screening of last year’s most subversive film, The Lego Movie, I spent an hour discussing it with another critic. And after Michael Bay’s artless and disgusting Pain & Gain, I nearly lost my voice from shouting at someone who really liked the movie. Daniel Benmayor’s Tracers, which stars Taylor Lautner of Twilight fame, »

Taylor Lautner Shares His Biggest Fear

21 March 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Taylor Lautner may be an action star, but that doesn't mean he's always fearless. "I am filming in Santa Fe right now and there are so many mice around my house," the actor, 23, tells People. "I go to bed every night afraid that a mouse is going to sleep with me." But don't worry, Lautner still exudes action hero confidence in his new film Tracers. "I did more stunts in this movie than I think I'll do in the rest of my career - very dangerous stunts," he says of working on the film, which also stars Marie Avgeropoulos and is in theaters now. »

Marie Avgeropoulos on ‘Tracers’ Co-Star Taylor Lautner: ‘He Came Out of the Womb’ With Action Skills (Video)

19 March 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The 100” star Marie Avgeropoulos is used to being a badass warrior on The CW post-apocalyptic drama, but she had to learn a whole new set of skills for “Tracers,” which opens Friday. Set in the world of parkour, the film follows a bike messenger, played by Taylor Lautner, who is introduced to the extreme sport by Avgeropoulos’ character. But little does he know that she and her rag tag family don’t just run and jump around for fun, but use the sport to pull off heists. “I was not familiar with parkour at all,” the actress told TheWrap of her. »

Netflix Acquires ‘Manson Family Vacation’ at SXSW (Exclusive)

17 March 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has acquired world distribution rights to “Manson Family Vacation,” a comedy produced by the Duplass brothers, Variety has learned.

The film, which premiered at SXSW on Monday night to good reviews, tells the story of two brothers (played by Jay Duplass and Linas Phillips) who embark on a road trip to the site of the Manson Family murders.

J. Davis wrote and directed the movie.

The acquisition is the latest in the streaming service’s aggressive push in feature films. Over the weekend, Netflix closed the first big deal at SXSW — picking up the buzzy relationship drama “6 Years,” which it plans to release later this year. Two weeks ago, Netflix also landed Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation,” and it announced a four-movie deal with the Duplass brothers in January. Adam Sandler has begun production on “Ridiculous 6,” co-starring Taylor Lautner, Whitney Cummings and Dan Aykroyd, for Netflix as »

Watch Tracers trailer: Taylor Lautner joins dangerous parkour gang

17 March 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Taylor Lautner's mundane life takes a dangerous turn in a trailer for Tracers.

Cam (Lautner) is a bike messenger who becomes involved with a cutting-edge parkour gang following a chance encounter with a beautiful woman (Marie Avgeropoulos).

Although life seems more exciting with the gang, Cam is soon over his head when the group turn to crime to fund their parkour exploits.

Tyrant actor Adam Rayner, Olympus Has Fallen's Sam Medina and Divergent star Josh Yadon all have supporting roles in the action thriller.

Director Daniel Benmayor shot Tracers on location in New York City.

Tracers opens in cinemas and is available on iTunes on March 20 in the Us. »

Tracers: Taylor Lautner Runs, Bikes, and Jumps

16 March 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

I'm one of those "glass half-full "critics when it comes to Taylor Lautner. Film after film I hope he'll pull a Sally Field, who went from The Flying Nun and Gidget to Sybil and Norma Rae. Would Abduction or Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 reveal the young man's inner Laurence Olivier? No, sadly. The lumbering hunk remains just a lumbering hunk in those two. Prize-winning pecs and abs plus a cute smile were what the glamor boy's fans had to settle for.

"Well, maybe Tracers will be his Wuthering Heights," I was murmuring as I scooted onto the subway last night, heading for a midtown screening room. I should have known better. I should have checked out the director's CV before hoping for the best.

The Barcelona-born Daniel Benmayor had previously helmed a Schweppes commercial with Hugh Laurie and two deodorant ads, which would make you think he could avoid creating malodorous art. »

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan want pay increase for Fifty Shades sequels

11 March 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After conquering the world this year with a whopping $550 million worldwide to date, it is no surprise that Universal Pictures and Focus Features are fast-tracking plans to bring the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels to the screen. But while fans can’t wait to see the return of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, the films stars aren’t quite locked in just yet.

Unsurprisingly after the success of the first film, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are reportedly seeking a bumper pay increase to star in the sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Both were reportedly paid $250,000 each for the first film, but The Hollywood Reporter suggests they are looking to boost their contacts with seven-figure fees.

The pair are contracted to appear in both sequels regardless, but the financial success of the first film, and the undoubted box-office bonanza still in store, has led to the duo looking for better deals, »

Fifty Shades Richer: Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan Want a Pay Raise

11 March 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There's absolutely no surprise to the news Fifty Shades of Grey stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are looking for a pay raise to take part in the two expected sequels to 2015's biggest box office hit yet. Fifty Shades of Grey has already made more than $528 million worldwide and the two stars were paid a mere $250,000 for the first film, obviously with the understanding success with that first film would mean more money down the line. Well, we're now down the line... Up next is Fifty Shades Darker and after that Fifty Shades Freed and the two are looking for compensation similar to what Jennifer Lawrence enjoyed after the success of The Hunger Games saw her pay day go from $500,000 to $10 million. Of course, Lawrence also won an Oscar in that same time frame for Silver Linings Playbook so the Fifty stars are unlikely to see such a massive bump, »

Cuckoo Us remake casts Jane the Virgin actress Rachel Dipillo

11 March 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

NBC's remake of the BBC sitcom Cuckoo has cast Jane the Virgin actress Rachel Dipillo.

Like the original, the Us Cuckoo will tell the story of a middle-class family who react badly when their daughter marries an irritating eccentric named Cuckoo.

Cuckoo - played by Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andy Samberg in the UK series - will be portrayed by YouTube star Flula Borg in the remake.

Dipillo will play his new wife Rachel - a part held by Tamla Kari and later Esther Smith in the UK series.

Airing on BBC Three, the original Cuckoo underwent a revamp for its second series, with Twilight star Taylor Lautner replacing Samberg.

NBC's version is under consideration for a series pick-up alongside other comedy pilots including People Are Talking starring Saved By The Bell's Mark-Paul Gosselaar and a remake of 1990 film Problem Child with Matthew Lillard.

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »

Foxcatcher Finally Gets Recognized: Channing Tatum Nominated for Best Shirtless Performance by MTV

4 March 2015 9:02 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You can see all of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations here (is it really fair to give Best Onscreen Transformation to Boyhood's leading boy?), but what we're most concerned about are the nominations for Best Shirtless Performance: Zac EfronNeighbors Chris PrattGuardians of the Galaxy  Channing TatumFoxcatcher Ansel ElgortThe Fault in Our Stars Kate Upton, The Other Woman  Zac Efron's pecs really did play a huge role in Neighbors, as did Kate Upton's cleavage in The Other Woman, but we'd be crazy not to point out how purposefully insane-looking Channing Tatum looked in Foxcatcher. Perhaps this is to make up for the fact that Magic Mike Chan lost to Taylor Lautner's bod in Twilight: Breaking Dawn in 2013? There's always Magic Mike Xxl, my friend. This one seems like it's going to Efron (who also won last year for his "work" in That Awkward Moment »

‘Tracers’ Review: Taylor Lautner Stars in a Running-Jumping-Stealing Parkour Thriller

25 February 2015 4:17 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Liberated from the clumsy cage of the “Twilight” films, Taylor Lautner stars in “Tracers,” an agreeable, if minor, thriller directed by Daniel Benmayor. Set in the concrete cliffs and canyons of Manhattan, the film kicks off when bike messenger Cam (Lautner) literally runs into Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos) as she and a gang of like-minded individuals are racing up, around and through the city by means of the free-running art called Parkour. It’s a meet-cute with injuries — a beat-cute, if you will — and after Nikki leaves Cam a bike to replace the one she smashed up, he tries »

Film Review: ‘Tracers’

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leaping through skylights and surfing down stairs, Taylor Lautner and his parkour crew elevate old-fashioned cat burglary to a feat of high-speed, anti-gravity showmanship in “Tracers,” a project that takes what’s anarchic about the sport and runs, jumps and double-somersaults with it. The plot may be as creaky as an old-timer slinking across rooftops in a black turtleneck and domino mask, but the acrobatic stunts more than compensate, many of them performed by Lautner himself. After 2011’s “Abduction” cast his drawing power into question, this youth-skewing, VOD-driven release could be the “Twilight” star’s last gleaming.

Perhaps that’s overstating the stakes, as it’s only Lautner’s short-lived A-list standing that appears to be in question. Although Team Jacob fans managed to sway “Twilight” producers from recasting his role in the sequels, they haven’t turned out in sufficient numbers to carry the teen wolf into a grown-up career, »
