'The Martian' and Michael Moore lead 2015 Toronto Film Festival selections

15 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate.  Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition."  It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."  Notable films that will have premiered »

‘Stonewall’ Riots Movie Set for Sept. 25 Release

21 July 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roadside Attractions has given an awards-season release of Sept. 25 to Roland Emmerich’s “Stonewall,” set amid the 1969 riots of the same name.

Emmerich directed from Jon Robin Baitz’s script. The story is set at a local watering hole, the Stonewall Inn, where a rage begins to build among gays, lesbians and drag queens over discrimination and repeated police harassment. Jeremy Irvine, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Jonny Beauchamp star.

Producers are Emmerich, Michael Fossat, Marc Frydman and Carsten Lorenz, and executive producers are Kirstin Winkler, Adam Press and Michael Roban. The film also stars Joey King, Karl Glusman and Vladimir Alexis.

“I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now,” Emmerich said. “It was the first time gay people said ‘Enough!’ They didn’t do it with leaflets or meetings, they took beer bottles and threw them at cops. »

Roadside Attractions will release Stonewall, a drama about the 1969 Stonewall riots that started America’s Lgbt rights movement, on September 25, 2015.

Written by Jon Robin Baitz and directed by Roland Emmerich, both out gay men, the film stars Jeremy Irvine and newcomer Jonny Beauchamp, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Ron Perlman.

Emmerich, who also produced the film, says, “I was always interested and passionate about telling this important story, but I feel it has never been more timely than right now.” Less than 50 years ago, in 1969, being gay was considered a mental illness; gay people could not be employed by the government; it was illegal for gay people to congregate, and police brutality against gays went unchecked. Today, thanks to the events set in motion by the Stonewall riots, the gay rights movement continues to make incredible strides towards equality. In the past several weeks alone, the »

'Stonewall' and 'Raging Bull' Sequel in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

14 July 2015 4:26 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week's MPAA bulletin had two titles and both were notable releases, this week has nine titles and only one of them really moves the dial... at all. That one being Stonewall, which I'm sure most people drooling over Roland Emmerich's current project, Independence Day: Resurgence, forgot all about. Well, if you're in that camp, let me remind you. Stonewall is a drama centered on the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York, an event widely considered the starting point for the modern gay civil rights movement. The movie stars Jeremy Irvine, Caleb Landry Jones, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman, Joey King and Karl Glusman. Here's the synopsis: Kicked out of his own home, young Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) flees to NY, leaving behind his beloved sister (Joey King). Homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, »

'Independence Day 2' Viral Teasers and Cast Photo

7 July 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Americans across the country were celebrating the 4th of July holiday, Independence Day: Resurgence star Jeff Goldblum and director Roland Emmerich sent out two cryptic videos from their official Facebook pages, with the sequel's Twitter page sending out even more Independence Day-themed videos. Each of these viral videos includes quotes from the original 1996 classic Independence Day, with some sort of static interference that could be from the aliens who are about to return from their home planet, several years after their initial invasion. Unfortunately, we don't get any actual footage from the sequel. Since production just started last month, it's unclear when we'll get our first official look at Independence Day: Resurgence.

The new title Independence Day: Resurgence was unveiled during a live stream Q&A directly from the set of this sequel, where fans also got their first look at the movie poster and a vehicle known as the Moon Tug. »

'Independence Day 2' Trailer Playing with 'Terminator Genisys' This Weekend?

3 July 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, the cast and crew of Independence Day: Resurgence held a live streaming Q&A session straight from the set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the official title was revealed and fans got their first look at some of the vehicles being used in the action sequel. With tomorrow marking America's annual Independence Day holiday, Ain't It Cool News reports that fans who see Terminator Genisys will be treated to the first teaser trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. The trailer will only be shown on July 4, and there is also a "good chance" that this first look at the sequel will be online later today.

Production has only been under way for a few weeks, so it seems unlikely that any actual footage will be shown in this teaser. As for what will be shown, that is unclear. But we already saw the official Independence Day: Resurgence logo in »

Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth Goof Off on 'Independence Day Resurgence' Set

3 July 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fighting aliens is hard work, and sometimes you just need to let off a little steam.

That was no doubt part of the inspiration behind a candid moment captured recently on the "Independence Day Resurgence" set, as returning star Jeff Goldblum, posing in front of a spacecraft, was photobombed by co-star Liam Hemsworth. The goofy snap, which Goldblum shared on his new Facebook page, gives fans yet another a glimpse at the playful nature that's part of the film's production, and offers hope that the hotly-anticipated sequel to 1996's "Independence Day" won't take itself too seriously.

So there I was thinking about how I would save mankind when this guy photobombs me. Oh, why hello Facebook, nice to finally meet you. #Idr

'Independence Day' Sequel Gets 'Resurgence' Title, New Photo

23 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just over a year from the film's release, Fox has announced a new, improved title for "Independence Day 2," and offered up the first photo from the long-awaited sequel.

The flick is now known as "Independence Day Resurgence," and what it's missing in punctuation (seriously, there should be a colon after "Day," right?), it more than makes up for in casting. Nearly every big name from the first film -- save for the glaring omission of too-expensive Will Smith -- is returning for the follow-up, including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch.

Joining those familiar faces this time around are series newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Sela Ward (who's replacing Pullman as Potus), Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Joey King, and Maika Monroe. "Resurgence" centers around the people of Earth bracing for another alien attack, since the distress call that the first wave of aliens sent out during the »

Independence Day 2 Poster Ups The Stakes

9 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like the aliens have their sights set a little higher than the White House this time – the first poster for Independence Day 2 finds that dreaded world-destroying ship about to blast its way to Earth’s core.

A few days back, we got an official synopsis for the blockbuster sequel, which will again be directed by Roland Emmerich, that promises destruction on a planetary scale, and the marketing department evidently saw that and decided to mess around with its poster. Here’s that synopsis again:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale.

Some fans thought the day would never come, but production has finally started on the long-gestating sequel to "Independence Day," and some familiar faces have already been spotted on set.

In an Instagram post, producer Dean Devlin -- who also co-wrote and produced the 1996 original -- shared a snap of star Jeff Goldblum, who's reprising his role as scientist David Levinson for the flick. "Hanging with David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) 20 years later is a dream come true!" Devlin captioned the photo.

"Dream come true" could also describe "Independence Day 2"'s very existence, since it's been in the works on and off for close to two decades now, with numerous stops and starts -- remember when it was supposed to be split into two films? »

Roland Emmerich Adds Another To Independence Day 2

14 May 2015 2:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The most recent piece of Independence Day 2 casting news kicked off an almighty social media storm, with Maika Monroe seemingly stepping into the role once played by Mae Whitman. But unless someone has a weird personal animus against eight-year-old actresses, Mckenna Grace’s addition to Roland Emmerich’s should pass by without causing the same tumult.The actress, a veteran of Disney’s live-action/puppetry show Crash & Bernstein, will slot in alongside fellow newbies Monroe and Liam Hemsworth and plays someone called Daisy. We don’t know what her character will be getting up to yet, but it’s highly unlikely she’ll be a fighter pilot.The remaining cast members are a mix of other fresh recruits (Jessie Usher, Travis Tope, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lance Lim, Sela Ward) and veterans of the first film (Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch), hoping to fill the big Will Smith-shaped gap. »
