Film Review: 'Miss Julie'

1 hour ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ All the right pieces seem to be in place for Liv Ullmann's adaptation of Miss Julie (2014), Swedish playwright August Strindberg's examination of class and sexual politics set in the waning years of the 19th century. A pedigree director in the form of Ullmann, a powerful pair of leads take the shape of Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell and a sumptuous, sprawling countryside estate in Victorian-era Ireland as the setting should all, in theory, create a lovely piece of cinema. Unfortunately, there's something too jarring about what unfolds over two very long hours. Rife with mawkish histrionics and a thoroughly overwrought script, it's hard to maintain interest in what should be an intriguing watch.

Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain Respond to James Bond Comments

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Yesterday, the Internet grabbed torches and pitchforks over new 007 author Anthony Horowitz's comments about Idris Elba as a potential James Bond. In particular, his opinion that Elba was "a bit too 'street' for Bond" rubbed many fans the wrong way. The author apologized and clarified what he was asked in the interview and intended with his response.

The actor himself was quiet for most of the day, while his name trended on Twitter, but he eventually shared a screen shot of Moviefone's article, with his own positive (but cheeky) response:

Always Keep Smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!! »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Ridley Scott.

Premise: A manned mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

Watch: Neil deGrasse Tyson Stars In a Viral Video for 'The Martian'

28 August 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One thing sci-fi fans will be expecting this fall is a response from Neil deGrasse Tyson on the scientific authenticity of Ridley Scott's The Martian. But the celebrity astrophysicist is already endorsing the movie in a big way. He stars in a new promotional video as himself, hosting an episode of his show StarTalk that only exists within the universe of The Martian to discuss the fictional spacecraft The Hermes and its dangerous Ares 3 mission to Mars. At the end, after stating that Earth is the planet "to which we owe our creation" but "no longer seems destined to be our final resting place," we see a group image of the Ares 3 crew, characters played by Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie and...

As If The Martian Needs To Be Any Cooler, Now Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Selling Ares

27 August 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The movie that already has everyone in it, and is based on perhaps the coolest idea in a decade, now The Martian ups the cool factor to unprecedented levels as Neil deGrasse Tyson offers us a special episode of “StarTalk” that walks us through the Ares mission to Mars.

It’s a “show” that comes from post-2029, after the first manned mission to Mars, and it’s bizarrely fascinating to watch.

Take a look, and pre-order another ticket for The Martian.

'The Martian' and Rooster Teeth part of dazzling Fantastic Fest 2015 line-up

27 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It is time for me to make my peace with the fact that I will not be at Fantastic Fest this year. Last year's fest was one of my favorites ever, fitting for a tenth anniversary, and I would love to go this year. It's just not in the cards, though. It guts me, too. The event continues to grow and change and evolve, and it features one of the greatest programming teams in the business right now. There are films playing at the festival that I'll see in Toronto, and I'm sure I'll catch up with others, but that's not the point. Fantastic Fest is an experience, and an amazing one. If you want to go, you still can. "Daytime Only Badges, Fan Badges, and 2Nd Half Badges for Fantastic Fest 2015 are available for purchase here," today's press release urged. If you can go for the second half, you'll »
