Tribeca 2014: About Alex Review

2 hours ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

  In the 1983 drama The Big Chill a group of estranged college friends converge on a country home in the wake of their friend Alex’s suicide and reflect on their pasts, futures, relationships, and evolving (or regressing) world views.  In 2014′s About Alex a group of estranged college friends converge on a country home in the wake of their friend Alex’s attempted suicide and reflect on their pasts, futures, relationships, and evolving (or regressing) world views.  If it appears as though About Alex is the millenial-inspired remake of The Big Chill, you’d be wrong.  There’s plenty of differences to dispel that notion, but there isn’t anything new to add either.

As per the usual milieu of this story type, the friends in question share an openly incestuous bond, with many of the characters having had some sort of romantic entanglement in one way or another.  Josh »

About Alex Movie Review

18 April 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: About Alex Director: Jesse Zwick Cast: Maggie Grace, Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Jason Ritter, Jane Levy, Max Minghella, and Nate Parker Tribeca Film Festival 2014 We are now at a point in history where the Millennial Generation (people born between 1982 and 2004) is nostalgic about their youth. When post-post-college careers have become mind numbing and dull that the only cure from responsibility is a road trip or a weekend getaway. The movie “About Alex” should be re-titled “The Small Chill” or “The Big Chill: Millennial Edition” because it shares the same narrative thrust as Lawrence Kasdan’s 1983 film “The Big Chill,” only with one caveat: what if the  [ Read More ]

Tribeca Film Festival: Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield bond in dark comedy 'About Alex'

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Aubrey Plaza was terror-stricken when she arrived at the abandoned Catskills ski lodge that served as the set of her indie film About Alex — so much so that she became closer to her castmates than originally expected.

“I forced Jane to move in with me because I was terrified I would get murdered by some mountain person,” confesses Plaza, one of the lead characters in the film about a group of old college friends who reunite over a long weekend to bond after one of their pals attempts suicide. “I felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, and it was totally creepy. »

Ten years ago today, Unfiltered debuted on Air America Radio stations. While the big draw was Chuck D and comedian Lizz Winstead, the lasting effect of Unfiltered (which barely lasted a year) was that it introduced Rachel Maddow to a national audience. However, for most people today is April Fools Day, so be a little cynical when you check the news.

In the upcoming Walking Dead season, Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have been promoted to series regulars. I hope that means they’ve got plans for Tara.

All that pretty and he has to turn out to be evil. Sigh.

Word has come today that Joe Johnston's Not Safe for Work is going to be headed straight to video come this April. Read on for details and of course the artwork, which incidentally is completely safe for work.

Look for it in stores on April 15th.

For the film Johnston reteamed with his Captain America star Jj Feild (Neil Marshall's Centurion) along with Tom Gallop (The Bourne Identity) and Emmy winner Christian Clemenson ("CSI: Miami"). Max Minghella (The Social Network) stars as the cunning protagonist, while Eloise Mumford (ABC's "The River") plays his girlfriend, who works at the same office along with Clemenson.

As Tom rushes to protect those employees working late, »

Fox’s “Broadchurch” Remake Will Have a New Ending, NBC Orders John Constantine Pilot and “True Detective” Hits for HBO

14 January 2014 5:19 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

HBO has ordered a third season of The Newsroom, though that will be the series swan song.

The Big Bang Theory has cast a new love interest for Raj, according to TVLine. Lost veteran Tania Raymonde will play a veterinarian who cares for Raj’s dog.

I’ll be honest, I just like seeing Raj and Stuart spending time together and tend to be wary of any distractions.

In amazing news the great Michelle Forbes will appear in the upcoming season of Orphan Black. I hope we get to see her in a scene or twelve with Felix.

NBC has ordered a pilot of the graphic novel character John Constantine. As a longtime fan of the character, I should be excited except I’m worried this will be another case of straightwashing on a David Goyer show.

Yesterday, Fox met with the Television Critics Association. The big news is »

Joe Johnston Will Direct Alien Invasion Thriller Extinction

8 January 2014 4:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After helming Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger to widespread acclaim, director Joe Johnston is returning to his sci-fi roots for an upcoming alien invasion thriller. Johnston, who got his start as an effects artist and arts director on the original Star Wars trilogy, has signed on to helm Extinction, a sci-fi thriller about a man trying to save his family in the face of an alien invasion.

Described as a “contained sci-fi thriller,” Extinction boasts a script by Spenser Cohen, an up-and-coming screenwriter who previously sold three spec scripts to major studios between 2011 and 2012. Good Universe, which preemptively picked up Extinction last September, compared the project to The Sixth Sense and Cloverfield, though the studio is keeping details on the story tightly under wraps. All I can imagine “contained” to mean is low-budget, so Extinction will likely have a quick shoot and get out to a studio within the next 12 to 18 months. »

Briefly: Director Joe Johnston had a comeback of sorts with the first Captain America, which solidified Chris Evans as a star and helped a lot of people forget about the ill-fated The Wolf Man that Johnston took over from Mark Romanek. His follow-up to Cap was the Jason Blum-produced Not Safe For Work, with Max Minghella, which hasn’t […] »
