The film will follow a team of explorers who venture deep into the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes.
Kong: Skull Island will now arrive on March 10, 2017. »
Just last week, Legendary Pictures retitled their Kong prequel pic and pushed back its release by several months. While the reason for the shift in both date and title weren’t offered, it seems production is still steaming ahead. Courtesy of a Deadline report, we’ve learned that Whiplash‘s hard-hitting mentor, J.K. Simmons has signed on for a role in the renamed, Kong: Skull Island.
Simmons will be joining comic book veteran, Tom Hiddleston, for the trek to Skull Island – home to cinema’s iconic giant ape, King Kong. Set to establish an entirely separate timeline from the events of other Kong films, this rebooted take will follow a gang of explorers who decide to venture deep into the island. Apart from that simple outline, there’s no details on who precisely Simmons will be portraying.
A long-standing character actor, this year Simmons received widespread critical acclaim for his »

“I’d rather die drunk, broke at 34 and have people at a dinner table talk about me than live to be rich and sober at 90 and nobody remembered who I was.” That’s how jazz drumming prodigy Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) sums up art and, really, life in general over an awkward dinner conversation in Whiplash. Andrew’s idolization of Charlie Parker is a touch extreme (and more than a touch apocryphal) but it’s his unfaltering adoration, even in the face of destitution and mortality, that defines the artistic dedication in Damien Chazelle’s second feature. The result of pitting Andrew’s entitled whippersnapper against the fiery temper of Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), the Shaffer Conservatory’s firebrand jazz director, Whiplash‘s prime concern is in the sacrifices of art marking and the crippling fear of complacency. It’s a »

The Academy music branch has strict rules, and had deemed ineligible for Best Original Score both the classic drum score for "Whiplash" and jazz drummer Antonio Sanchez's original 32-minute drum score for "Birdman." The first is no surprise, as Miles Teller is drumming classic jazz pieces during the film. The Oscars are looking for original, written scores. Sanchez's score was not Oscar-worthy, it seems, because as daring as it was for Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu to score the film with drums, they were frequently interrupted by snatches of "found" classical music. Here's the rule: To be eligible, the original score must be a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring, and must be written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer. Scores diluted by the use of tracked themes or other preexisting music, diminished in impact by the predominant use of songs, or assembled from the music of more. »

Directed by Damien Chazelle.
Young, talented jazz drummer Andrew is pushed to boiling point by a ferocious conductor determined to find the next great, leading to confrontations of of both psychological and physical proportions.
“There are no two words in the English language more harmful,” J.K. Simmons tells us, “than ‘good job’.” Spoken with such uninhibited truthfulness, the mantra of Terrence Fletcher, an eccentric, hot-headed conductor with a stringent desire for perfection, has the capacity to convince us he’s right. While many of Terrence’s methods in gaining said perfection don’t so much border the line as flat-out cross it (picture throwing a chair at a drummer for missing tempo), we can’t help but hear at least a morsel of reason in his idea that if no-one was ever pushed to be great, »

In the film, Erudite faction leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) is hunting Divergents in the hopes of finding one who can unlock a mysterious box. It’s clear that Tris (Shailene Woodley) is the Divergent they are looking for, and the rebel group joins forces with the factionless to fight back against the oppressive regime and prevent Tris’ capture.
"Jeanine’s never going to stop coming after us," declares Four (Theo James). "It’s time we fight back."

It was not my intention to confuse anyone. When I published my Top Ten of 2014 yesterday, that was timed around a larger slate of other Top Ten stuff being published here, and it was timed around the delivery from the video team, and when it ran, I realized that it was going to be very odd to skip from #21, published in this piece, to the top ten, but it was also unavoidable. The truth is that, as with most years, I would have been just as happy with these ten movies as my picks for best of the year, and I am just as fond of everything on this list as I am of the films that made the top ten. Because, seriously, you don't really just have ten movies that sum up a year. For me, there are so many films that will be a huge part of 2014 for »

When last we saw Shailene Woodley’s Tris, she had temporarily thwarted the ruling ambitions of Erudite leader Jeanine (Kate Winslet) and was on the run with Dauntless comrade/lover Four (Theo James). Now, in Insurgent, she’s ready to take the fight to the enemy to reclaim civilisation. While the teaser for the sequel (which goes by the full, slightly cumbersome name of The Divergent Series: Insurgent) featured Woodley’s heroine and her mother (Ashley Judd) in what looked like a dream/test sequence, this new promo kicks things up several notches in terms of action, conflict, snogging, running and Miles Teller being a total douche.Jeanine, it would appear, has laid hands on a strange glowing box that seemingly holds the key to power in the dystopian society so split into factions. But a divergent is apparently needed to open it. Cue a hunt for Tris even as »
I enjoyed "Divergent" (see my interviews with the cast below), so now, I can't wait to see the sequel, "Insurgent!" I'm a big fan of Shailene Woodley, she anchors the first movie from start to finish. And after seeing "The Fault in Our Stars," I'm a big fan of Ansel Elgort as well! Take a look at the first full trailer of "Insurgent." The sequel comes out on March 20, 2015.
Click on the names to see my interview with the cast of "Divergent" from March of this year:
There are three types of conflict common to all stories: Shailene Woodley versus man, Shailene Woodley versus society, and Shailene Woodley versus herself. The first trailer for Insurgent makes sure to include all three. It also has Kate Winslet looking icy as hell, Octavia Spencer wearing the same dystopian knits she did in Snowpiercer, and Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort being way more famous than they were when they signed onto this franchise. Also, if you've read Infinite Jest, Theo James does a stunt that will remind you of the book, which, when you think about it, was also kind of a dystopian Ya novel. »
A full trailer had been released for Summit Entertainment's The Divergent Series: Insurgent. I've never read any of the books in this series, and I thought the first movie was ok. That being said, this sequel looks a lot better. This is a thrilling action-packed trailer that I'm sure fans of the franchise will enjoy. The story also seems to take a really interesting turn.
The movie stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Octavia Spencer, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Daniel Dae Kim, Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet. Here's the synopsis:
The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must »

More shattered glass and train-jumping can mean only one thing: Divergent’s back!
With a handful of rebels from Dauntless, Abnegation, and Candor, Tris and Four (Theo James) have started fighting back, but they’re low in numbers. The Factionless, the rejects of the Faction system who are led by the gun-toting Evelyn Johnson-Eaton (Naomi Watts), might have a solution.
It looks like Shailene’s former movie boyfriends Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) and Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) are both supporting Erudite though Caleb (Elgort) appears to be a double agent, feeding the rebels with information about one of Jeanine’s new Divergent-related projects.
Jeanine’s looking for a certain Divergent and of course it’s probably Tris. »

The new full-length trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent has been released, and it does a great job of showing fans a host of their favorite characters. Tris, played by Shailene Woodley, is of course the star — running with guns, jumping off buildings, kissing Four, getting captured and being forced to fight herself. It's a thrilling clip featuring Jeanine (Kate Winslet), Four (Theo James), Caleb (Ansel Elgort), Peter (Miles Teller) and more as the Erudites gain power and the Divergents and their allies fight back.
