2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions List: An Introduction

17 November 2014 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

Film Review: ‘Wolves’

15 November 2014 9:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arriving a bit late to exploit any residual “Twilight” fever, fantasy-action programmer “Wolves” will settle for evoking still-active TV skeins “True Blood” and “Teen Wolf,” with spare echoes from “Near Dark,” “The Lost Boys” and miscellaneous other youth-skewing horror films of the the recent decades. There are certainly no fresh ideas risked in this first directorial feature by voice actor-turned-scenarist David Hayter (“X-Men,” “Watchmen”), but “Wolves” could be worse, being as fast-paced and polished on a “B” budget as it is forgettable. Getting a low-profile U.S. release amid international rollouts that started in late August, it’s unlikely to raise much theatrical dust here but should prove profitable enough in the long run via home-format sales.

One day, floppy-banged Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) is just your average star-quarterback high-school senior; the next, after some preparatory nightmares, he’s suddenly transforming into a hairy beast who assaults his girlfriend (Kaitlyn Leeb »

Film Review: Wolves

13 November 2014 8:35 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The new movie Wolves is the directorial debut of screenwriter David Hayter. He wrote the screenplay for the first X-Men movie and was one of the credited writers on X-2: X-Men United and Watchmen. That this is his first feature directing effort definitely shows, but I'll get to that later.

Lucas Till stars as Cayden Richards, a popular high school jock who is just a little off. One night his adoptive parents are killed, and he believes he is responsible, having just come to the realization that he is a werewolf. He goes on the run, and in a bar, he meets Wild Joe. Joe, a fellow lycanthrope, points him in the direction of the small town of Lupine Ridge, where he can find out more about himself and his birth family's history.

Running things in the town with an iron fist, or paw in this case, is Jason Momoa. »

Film Review: No Supernatural Slam Dunks in Teen Horror ‘Wolves’

13 November 2014 11:47 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – For the pack of horror fans who mourn the “PG-13” toothlessness of the teen wolf, the limited-release film “Wolves” tries to reclaim the character with slow-mo, WWE-with-claws fight scenes and some sprinkles of brief softcore wolf porn. If that’s all one could ask for from a werewolf movie, you probably can’t be blocked from giving this one a curious look; however if you’re trepidatious of a plainly junky, R-rated reaction to “The Twilight Saga,” perhaps you can be stopped.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Wolves” presents its lead Cayden (a stiff Lucas Till) well into his transition as a teenage wolf. However, he’s not a cool teen wolf like the one played by Michael J. Fox who dazzled classmates with his basketball dunks, but one that scares the town senseless. He eventually runs away after getting too wolf-y with his girlfriend and then killing his parents in the same hormonal rage, »

'Wolves': Everything You Need to Know About the Jason Momoa Movie

13 November 2014 5:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's some serious partying going on one late October evening in a remote area outside of Toronto. From a distance, a fire pit's glow cascades over the area. Loud music interrupts the midnight silence. Clanging beer bottles and glasses contribute to the festive atmosphere. Male voices can be heard and so can .... growling?

This is no human get-together. Mere steps away, a feral pack of werewolves is celebrating merrily around the charred body of a victim as it roasts on a spit. The werewolf predators sit on tree stumps as they rip into their human meal and take swigs of alcohol. A tent stands in the background next to a large table. But the true showstopper on-site is a throne with deer bones adorning the top.

All of a sudden, alpha werewolf Connor (Jason Momoa) slowly stands up from his crouched position, cocks his head and looks around. All the »

Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) learns an important lesson in our exclusive clip from Wolves. If you don't want to reveal your real name in a bar, you should have it planned out in advance.

Forced to hit the road after the brutal murder of his parents, Cayden tries to hunt down the truth of what he is.

‘Wolves’ Review: Ya Fun Peppered With Blood Splashes, F-Bombs and Rape Threats

12 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Cayden Richards (Lucas Till) is a popular high school quarterback with wealthy parents, a hot girlfriend and not a single worry in the world. Well, he has been having violent and horrific nightmares every night, and he almost kills an opposing player on the field in a fit of rage, but aside from that he really doesn’t have a single worry. But that all changes when he realizes he’s a werewolf. He attacks his hot girlfriend, murders his own parents and goes on the run across country, but his escape very quickly brings him in contact with a man with the same hairy affliction and a suggestion of where Cayden should go for answers. That destination is the remote mountain town of Lupine Ridge, obviously, but Cayden is surprised to discover it offers answers to questions he didn’t even know he had. Writer/director David Hayter‘s Wolves is a Ya film in, well »

Wolves Feels Like a Western With Werewolves

11 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Werewolf movies are traditionally about the beast within, but the adversaries in David Hayter's Wolves are strictly external. With its outsider protagonist defending a rural town against a menacing gang of thugs, the film is built on the classic foundation of a western — it feels a little like Road House in Teen Wolf drag. Cayden (Lucas Till), on the run for wolfing out and slaughtering his family, heads to the secret werewolf community of Lupine Ridge to understand his condition. The Ridge, however, is run by badass alpha male Connor (Jason Momoa), whose demands on the town's peaceable werewolves are becoming increasingly onerous. The rote setup especially shows its age in the treatment of Angelina (Merritt Patterson), Cayden's love interest. »

Blu-ray Review – X-Men: Days Of Future Past (2014)

10 November 2014 5:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

X-Men: Days of Future Past, 2014.

Directed by Bryan Singer.

Starring Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Lucas Till, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Daniel Cudmore, Evan Peters, Booboo Stewart, Omar Sy, Fan Bingbing, Adan Canto, Evan Jonigkeit, Josh Helman and Peter Dinklage.

Synopsis:

The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.

“Please. We need you to hope again…”

Quite an apt statement lifted from Bryan Singer’s return to the comic-book realm that feels much more personal than just that of a desperate future Professor X (the ever miraculous Patrick Stewart) as he begs, pleads his past self (James McAvoy) through a inter-dimensional/time-loop to get back on a horse called Cerebro. Indeed, it feels like it’s Singer doing the pleading, »
