Another Look at Pa Drama Young Ones [Trailer]

20 hours ago | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

We've already seen two trailers for Jake Paltrow's upcoming Pa drama Young Ones but with the movie's release quickly approaching, the studio has seen fit to cut a third, rather short but effective teaser for the movie.

Starring Michael Shannon, Kodi Smit-McPhee (now a regular when it comes to Pa fare), and Dakota Fanning all star as members of a family surviving in the desert of the future and their attempt to subvert Nicholas Hoult who has more in mind than simply rejuvenating the soil.

The new teaser features much of the same footage from the earlier trailers but it promises a movie that is a lot more action packed than we've previously seen and I expect this is a [Continued ...] »

Watch: Jake Paltrow's 'Young Ones' Us Teaser Trailer is a Visual Feast

23 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Some brief international teaser trailers just surfaced for the intriguing sci-fi flick Young Ones, which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and now a short teaser trailer for the film's release in the United States has arrived, showcasing more of the cool desert landscape that director Jake Paltrow has created. The film has flares of Steven Spielberg with hints of Mad Max, and a sweeping, grand score, complete with a truly incredible cast that features Michael Shannon, Dakota Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Nicholas Hoult. This is what indie sci-fi strives to be, and it's very cool. Watch below! Here's the new Us trailer for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones from Vulture: Young Ones is written and directed by Jake Paltrow. Set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, the land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, »

Watch: New Visually Striking U.S. Trailer For ‘Young Ones’ Starring Elle Fanning, Michael Shannon & More

23 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s a dystopian near-future, water has run dry and America’s in a debilitating drought. That’s what sets the stage for Jake Paltrow’s new picture “Young Ones.” But it’s actually from many accounts, including our own review, more of a morality drama with a patriarchal struggle for power. The movie stars Michael Shannon as a father trying to protect his land and family. His children are played by Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Nicholas Hoult plays a young man with his eye on more than just the previous land the father owns. We described it as having both Spielberg-ian and Bresson-ian elements to it—the latter expressed through a dilapidated anthropomorphic robot perhaps not unlike the poor donkey in “Au Hasard Balthazar.” And I dunno about you, but any movie that can carefully balance those two filmmakers successfully is something I’d wanna see.

See the Visually Striking Trailer for Young Ones, With Michael Shannon and Elle Fanning

23 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Comic-Con starts up this weekend with a full roster of megabudget spectaculars on display, but spare a moment for another sci-fi movie coming out soon that cost a lot less but still looks like a million bucks. Directed by Jake Paltrow (yes, you've heard of his sister), the dystopian Young Ones takes place in a future that's almost totally devoid of water, which makes farming a difficult task for hardened frontiersman Michael Shannon and his two children, played Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Once Fanning's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult sets his sights on stealing Shannon's land, the stage is set for all the characters to clash, and they pursue their agendas in a visually stunning, barren futurescape that's shown off to great effect in this exclusive new trailer. Robots! Electronic spinal cords! Nifty, low-tech face masks! This rather different sci-fi Western arrives in theaters on October 17, so save the date. »

Movie Review – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

22 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014.

Directed by Matt Reeves.

StarringAndy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Synopsis:

Set ten years after the outbreak of a deadly virus, we find ape leader Caesar and his group living peacefully outside San Francisco. A chance meeting with a group of human survivors leads to the two sides battling for survival.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise hit in 2011 and brought a breath of fresh air to a franchise that had stalled with numerous sequels and Tim Burton’s unfortunate remake. In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes we are in a post “Simian-flu” world and the tone of the film is completely different to its predecessor. Caesar (expertly played by motion capture God Serkis), is the leader of a group of apes and is »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014.

Diirected by Matt Reeves.

Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, like any prequel or movies based on a series of novels, suffers from inevitability. We know how it will end but the enjoyment should come from how it gets there and how it takes the audience along on the ride. Despite some great acting and truly awe inspiring advancements in motion capture, I couldn »

Matt Reeves talks Planet of the Apes 3

19 July 2014 3:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes currently tearing up the box office and garnering near universal praise [read our two ★★★★★ reviews here and here], director Matt Reeves has offered up some insight into where the already-announced third movie (which is set for July 26th, 2016) may head during an interview with The Playlist. Be warned, spoilers for the end of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Mark Bomback and I are going to be writing the next one and we have a lot of ideas but you know we’re going to take a moment to breathe. We just finished this one so we’ll see where it goes but we have a lot of ideas we just have to sit down and start it all up again. But it’s really important to me that whatever we do next is something that can be better than Dawn, so hopefully we can achieve that aim. »

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Sequel Will Not Leap Forward in Time

18 July 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not to bring any spoilers to the table in its second weekend of release, but Dawn of the Planet of the Apes does feature a proper ending. We know where this series is eventually headed, a spoiler revealed in the 1968 original. Many fans have been speculating that we'll get to the iconic character Colonel George Taylor, personified by the late Charlton Heston , sooner than later. But that may not be the case.

Director Matt Reeves, who is already confirmed to director the untitled Planet of the Apes 3 prequel, says he wants to continue Caesar's story. And the next installment will not feature a major leap ahead.

"I don't necessarily think that there will be as big a leap between films. I see Caesar as a seminal figure in ape history and he's a mythic character. He's essentially like their Moses and I think Caesar having to grapple with what it »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review: people get ready

18 July 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We need a bigger word than humanist.

That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

18 July 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To say it has been a very successful year for 20th Century Fox would be an understatement as news comes in today that the studio has crossed the $2 million mark domestically and $3 billion globally for 2014. They are the first studio to do so this year.

X-Men: Days of Future Past has been a huge help to this number, having taken $735 million worldwide.

This is the second time the studio has hit this point after doing so in 2010. The majority of that money came from James Cameron’s Avatar.

20th Century Fox have now hit $2 billion globally for the last six years in a row.

Here are the big contributors:

Grand Budapest Hotel ($168 million)

Rio 2 ($490 million)

The Other Woman ($195 million)

X-Men: Days of Future Past ($735 million)

The Fault in our Stars ($243 million)

Second Opinion – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

17 July 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014

Directed by Matt Reeves

Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Nick Thurston, Terry Notary and Karin Konoval

Synopsis:

In the wake of a disaster that changed the world, the growing and genetically evolving apes find themselves at a critical point with the human race.

The announcement of a reboot to the Planet of the Apes franchise was met with apathy due to the poor reception and utter failure of a movie that is Tim Burton’s 2001 remake, but 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a nice surprise. The movie was beautiful, slow and brilliantly written and acted with some of the most impressive visuals ever seen. Not only was it one of the best movies released that year, it was easily the best movie in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Its sequel »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Review

16 July 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Kirk Acevedo, Nick Thurston, Terry Notary, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer | Written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver | Directed by Matt Reeves

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  will be categorized as a summer blockbuster because of its release date, high budget, and extensive use of special effects. However, its story and character first mentality along with its stark wiliness to take chances makes it an almost anti-blockbusters. Now that is not to say it is void of thrilling action or inspired set-pieces. There is plenty of entertainment to be had. It is simply not driving the story and in many ways the least interesting aspect of the entire film. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes  may be a sequel to an already rebooted franchise. That does not mean it cannot be filled with innovative »

UK Trailer & Poster For Ari Folman’s Fascinating ‘The Congress’ Starring Robin Wright

15 July 2014 4:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’d seen an international trailer earlier this year but now we’ve got the UK trailer for the unique-looking The Congress, and I really must emphasise it’s completely original flavour.

Directed by Ari Folman, the visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, the film follows ageing actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) who chooses to take her final job: one that’ll preserve her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. The deal is set up by longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston). Her virtual alias will be controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son.

Twenty years later, under the creative vision of the studio’s head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright’s digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is the unmissable summer blockbuster of 2014

15 July 2014 4:27 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Written by Mark Bomback, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver

Directed by Matt Reeves

USA, 2014

In 2011, the thought of rebooting Planet of the Apes seemed foolish. Then Rise of the Planet of the Apes came out, and blew audiences away. As a result, expectations were high for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the follow up to 2011’s successful venture. The results are remarkable, as Dawn offers not only a brilliant summer blockbuster, but also an emotionally powerful testimony to the nature of war and humility.

Picking up where Rise ended, we’re shown an elaborate graphic of the world as it succumbs to the spread of what comes to be known as Simian Flu. Cities are infected, chaos spreads, and millions die as the infection takes hold.

The Graphic Novel from ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Is Already a Movie (Sort Of)

14 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If your weekend consisted of checking out Matt Reeves’ wonderful Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and then wrapping yourself in a warm blanket and reminding yourself that Little Caesar is a-okay (for now, and also, that is the baby ape’s name, right?) and just gently rocking for the remainder of Saturday and Sunday, we understand. But perhaps it’s time you emerge from your emotional fog and remember some of the less wrenching parts of the film. Like that time that Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee) made friends with Maurice (played by Karin Konoval) by sharing the magic of books, graphic novels, and storytelling. That was nice, right? And also, what was that book? Perhaps there is some subtext buried here. In Reeves’ film, young Alexander forges a tenuous connection with the big-hearted ape Maurice, who exhibits a love for reading and knowledge early in the film, through a book (Maurice, it »
