A couple of key release date changes have taken place in the last few days, including several of this summer's key titles. 20th Century Fox in particular has shaken up its slate, playing musical chairs with three of its upcoming titles.
The "Poltergeist" remake has been moved up by two months to May 22nd, as a result the Melissa McCarthy comedy "Spy" has been pushed out of that slot and back two weeks to June 5th. On top of that, the road trip tale "Paper Towns" has been moved out of that June 5th slot and into the old "Poltergeist" slot on July 24th.
They aren't the only studio shaking things up though. Stx Entertainment has unveiled its slate of films with an untitled Blumhouse thriller opening July 31st, the remake of the acclaimed "The Secret in their Eyes" opening October 23rd, the horror tale "The Boy" opening January 22nd »

Awards season has transformed into pretty much a 12 month a year event (outside of maybe a few weeks in June) which means there is news to report about some of the more anticipated prestige players of 2015. Fox Searchlight announced today that John Crowley's acclaimed romantic drama "Brooklyn" will hit theaters in platform release on Nov. 6. The tearjerker was one of the big surprises at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival where it screened out of competition (read my review here). Stars Saoirse Ronan, Michael Zegen, Domhnall Gleeson and Julie Walters are all potential acting category contenders and Nick Hornby delivers another wonderful screenplay adaptation after last year's "Wild." Screenings at Telluride or Toronto seem likely, but a slot at the New York Film Festival just makes too much sense, doesn't it? Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl" also found a release date today as Focus Features announced it will open in New »

A pair of possible Oscar contenders received release dates today with Fox Searchlight setting a November 6 release date for their Sundance acquisition Brooklyn from director John Crowley and starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters. Based on Colm Toibin's acclaimed novel and set on opposite sides of the Atlantic, Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. Then there's Tom Hooper's The Danish Girl starring , telling the story »

“Brooklyn,” the story of an immigrant’s journey to New York, was bought during Sundance for $9 million following its Jan. 25 premiere at the festival.

"What the hell did I just see?" seemed to be the general reaction on the Croisette when Ryan Gosling's directorial debut "Lost River" played Un Certain Regard last May. Watch the bizarre, and quite beautiful, new international trailer below. (Hat tip: The Film Stage.) Well, it finally sees the light of day or something like it on April 10, 2015 with a day-and-date limited release from Warner Bros. -- following a March screening at SXSW in Austin. Originally titled "How to Catch a Monster," the film is partially set in an underwater city, and stars Matt Smith, Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn as denizens of ruination -- images of time-ravaged Detroit permeate this "film maudit crapocalypse" in which Ryan Gosling firmly sheds his sweet side. Even before Cannes reviews hit, the film ignited a firestorm on Twitter. Anne Thompson liked it, tweeting "Impressive impressionistic well-wrought »

Here’s a new trailer for Ryan Gosling‘s directorial debut Lost River, which features Eva Mendes, Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Ben Mendelsohn, and Matt Smith. The film has been the subject of plenty of talk since it debuted at Cannes almost a year ago. The Cannes reviews weren’t particularly kind, but Cannes reviews can be polarized at times, and […]

We previously saw a U.S. trailer for "Lost River," Ryan Gosling's directorial debut which is a dark and twisted fantasy tale starring Christina Hendricks, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes and Saoirse Ronan. There's quite a big of new footage in this one as well which gives us only a small idea of what to expect from this dream-like project which hits limited screens and VOD on April 10th.
Also today, and following the stunning Comic Con trailer last July and the first official teaser trailer released late last year, a new international trailer for George Miller's crazy ambitious looking "Mad Max: Fury Road" has arrived. Sadly the one-minute piece is only a cut-down version of the official teaser and boasts no new footage. Still, it's an exciting bit of fluff:

You gotta hand it to Ryan Gosling. Even though his film was sliced and diced by critics at Cannes last summer, he is stepping up and taking full ownership of "Lost River." Next month, he'll hit SXSW to promote the movie, and he won't just be waving to fans from the red carpet. He'll be sitting down for a one-hour talk with Guillermo del Toro about his fantasy flick. And to whet your appetites further, here's a new international trailer for this actor's directorial effort. While mostly structured the same as the domestic version we saw a couple of weeks back, this one is cut to lots of new and different footage. You can take another dive into the movie, starring Christina Hendricks, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, Saoirse Ronan and more, that tells a David Lynch-ian tale of a mother, son, and an underwater world. Certainly, the visuals in this movie look impressive. »

"The only way to break the spell is to bring peace to the surface." After the first peculiar trailer for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River arrived not too long ago, an international trailer gives us another look at the very strange film. Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Ben Mendelsohn and Saoirse Ronan star in the film that is full of dark fantasy and gorgeous imagery. But it looks like Gosling just may have been trying too hard to make this one work in the end. It feels like the kind of film that sounded good and beautifully artistic on paper but doesn't end up connecting with the audience. Watch? Here's the new international trailer for Ryan Gosling's Lost River from The Film Stage: You can still watch the first Us trailer for Lost River right here. Lost River (formerly known as How to Catch a Monster) is »

Title: Brooklyn Director: John Crowley Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters Brooklyn is and always has been a melting pot. New York’s second most popular borough is well-known for its many ethnic communities, and for being a city in its own right that stands apart from Manhattan. It serves, therefore, as a fitting title and setting for director John Crowley’s film adapted from Colm Tólbin’s novel about an Irish immigrant in the 1950s who leaves home to pursue a life in America, where she is met with cultural differences and an eye-opening introduction to being a resident of the country dreamed about by so many [ Read More ]

Title: Stockholm, Pennsylvania Director: Nikole Beckwith Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Cynthia Nixon, Jason Isaacs, David Warshofsky There is something inherently recognizable about the word “Stockholm,” and it usually does not refer to the capital of Sweden. Instead, it denotes Stockholm Syndrome, which is when prisoners or survivors of capture or imprisonment empathize with and even grow to love their captors. Director Nicole Beckwith’s feature film debut deals with the extreme case of Leanne (Saiorse Ronan), who spent seventeen years locked in a basement thinking that her name was Leia. Her return to society and to the parents that lost her at a young age is a difficult and trying one, and [ Read More ]

Every year, the Sundance Film Festival finds itself packed with several promising features, filled with established performers and breakout stars, and filmmakers screening their first feature alongside veterans of the profession. One of the unfortunate downsides of such a rich array of features, however, is that not every film is able to secure a distributor during the length of the festival, regardless of how intriguing or well-made they are. Here are ten features from the 2015 incarnation of the festival that found themselves without distribution, but which hopefully do become available to the non-festival viewing audience at some point. As with past incarnations of this list, the films are in alphabetical order.
The science fiction genre has often allowed filmmakers to explore current day issues in allegory form, allowing them to dig into what causes societal concerns by viewing it from a different perspective. In that sense, Jennifer Phang »

The snowy streets of Park City, Utah have cleared out and another Sundance has come to an end. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl appears to be this year’s breakout independent film but there were several other movies that a made a quieter critical splash that are just waiting to be discovered by a wider audience. They consist of a tightly wound, tension-filled western, a cerebral discussion about America, creativity, and privacy, a musical icon’s emotional bio pic, a powerful coming-of-age tearjerker, and one peculiar romantic comedy. What follows are my highlights of a diversely entertaining Sundance 2015:
The End of the Tour
Directed by James Ponsoldt
Written by David Lipsky and Donald Marguiles
- Lane Scarberry
Directed by John Crowley
Written by Nick Hornby
United Kingdon, Canada & Ireland, 2015
John Crowley’s Brooklyn (based on the novel by Colm Tóibín, screenplay by Nick Hornby) is a sweeping romantic epic that emphasizes the power the protagonist has over her own life, a rarity in a woman’s story. Eilis (Saoirse Ronan of Hanna and The Grand Budapest Hotel) moves to Brooklyn, New York from small town Ireland to escape the oppressive nature of her traditional home and demanding heritage. Although she loves her mother and sister, she slowly forges a new path in America for herself. Ronan skillfully draws out excruciating homesickness, the excitement of new emotional bonds, and the first steps of confidence in a positive direction with a pained poise.
Through education and bit by bit building up her ego, she is »

Michael and I had a lot of fun covering this year's Sundance for you, though we definitely missed Glenn this time around resulting in less films covered. The more is always the merrier with movies. Here is a complete list of our 29 reviews in alpha order by film in case you missed any or to use as a reference guide when the films reemerge in the real world.
Tomorrow we'll talk favorite performances and Oscar (we realize it's way too early) but that's a separate conversation. Here's to Sundance 2015!
The Movies We Screened
10,000 Saints (Michael) Manhattan in the 80s with Hailee & Asa
Dark Horse (Nathaniel) documentary on breeding race horses

This year’s Sundance Film Festival unfolded in the shadow of Oscar snubs for “Selma” and its director Ava DuVernay. And though there was no overt Sundance theme, the crop of films and filmmakers seemed like a renunciation of a slate of Academy nominees that has been slammed for being too male and white.
In Park City, there was diversity both in front of and behind the camera, a point that fest founder Robert Redford underscored in his opening remarks Jan. 22. “Diversity is something that moves the ball,” Redford said.
Sony Pictures Classics co-president Tom Bernard dubbed this year’s Sundance “the year of the women.” Roughly a third of the films in U.S. dramatic competition were directed by women, compared with the paltry 7% of female directors behind the top 250 films of 2014. Marielle Heller, helmer of “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” said her film about a young teenager »

In addition to casting his baby's mama, the Hollywood heartthrob also gave his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks a lead role in the fantasy thriller, which debuted its first trailer on Tuesday. The film follows the life of a single mother (Hendricks), who is swept into a dark underworld -- where she meets Cat (Mendes) -- while her teenage son Bones (Iain De Caestecker) discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town. Hanna actress Saoirse Ronan also plays Bones' young love interest.
"Is it dangerous?" Billy asks Cat after being introduced to the shady club. "If the door's locked you're fine," Cat replies.
The trailer quickly cuts back to Mendes under the lights again, but »
When Ryan Gosling’s Lost River first debuted at Cannes in 2014, it received a hot mess of reactions from the movie world’s toughest audience, with critics labeling it a messy homage to the dreams and styles of many other filmmakers. With the first trailer having just arrived, you can immediately see the unholy blend of Nicolas Winding Refn, Terrence Malick and David Lynch all stewing in Gosling’s pot.
But as of recently, the film was salvaged for VOD and theatrical release starting on April 10, and American audiences can get their first look at Lost River as part of the just announced SXSW Film Festival lineup. Lost River stars Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Christina Hendricks, and Ben Mendelsohn. Watch the trailer below:

Check it out below. Plot: Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy (Christina Hendricks), a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones (Iain De Caestecker) must dive deep into the mystery, if their family is to survive. "Lost River" is also written by Gosling and is set to be released on VOD and in select theaters on April 10th. Trailer: »
Formerly titled How To Catch A Monster, the surreal directorial debut from Ryan Gosling finally drops a trailer, after a showing at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival that could have gone better for the movie. Negative reviews have dogged it since its premiere, but we will finally get to judge for ourselves when the movie hits our screens later this year. Judging by this first trailer, this dark, contemporary fairy tale does show Gosling's eye for some intriguing imagery, and there is a good cast here, including Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, and former Doctor Who star Matt Smith. While the trailer seems havey on surreal imagery but extremely light on actual story, the new poster is absolutely wonderful, doing a great job of letting you know what you are in for. Check both out below. Released: 10th April (U.S.)/ 24th April (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: “Lost River” is »
