Michael Shannon Stares Down The Barrel In New Clip From Young Ones

25 September 2014 3:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Set in an apocalyptic wasteland, Jake Paltrow’s Young Onespreys on the human experience in the aftermath of a catastrophic event. By placing his characters in a barren landscape where water is a rarity, he evokes an abundance of emotional responses.

If you’ve not yet heard of the movie, it’s likely because it was buried beneath showier fare at this year’s film festivals. Boasting an impressive cast, Michael Shannon leads the charge as a father who’ll do anything for his children (Kodi Smith McPhee and Elle Fanning.) When he’s not working on his farm, he’s protecting it from poachers and thieves, one of whom is none-other than his daughter’s paramour, played by Nicholas Hoult.

I’d not heard much about the movie until recently. The ‘futuristic Western’ genre that saps on old tropes while instilling new situations (i.e. an absence of a »

Watch: Nicholas Hoult Meets The Barrel Of Michael Shannon’s Shotgun In First Clip From ‘Young Ones’

24 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jake Paltrow’s “Young Ones” divided audiences at Sundance earlier this year, but it’s possible a slow-burn, hypnotic film such as this benefits from being seen outside the hustle and bustle of a festival environment. But the picture has a lot going for it, starting with its cast. “Young Ones” stars Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit McPhee, and it’s been described as having western, Speilberg-ian and Bresson-ian undertones, which might make it the only film of 2014 to bear that distinction. It certainly sounds like an original mélange of influences. The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic future where water is scarce and the environment has become a ragged, dusty wasteland. That’s an interesting backdrop, but film is also a chaptered triptych about patriarchs, and at the heart of this is a triangle between a father (Shannon), a daughter (Fanning) and a would-be suitor »

The Congress Review

28 August 2014 9:02 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2014 Atlanta Film Festival.  The Congress opens today in limited release.] Ari Folman's The Congress is a trip in more ways than one. Its visuals are lush and its ideas are rich. Like Folman's previous film, Waltz with Bashir, the writer-director isn't using animation only as visual expression, but also bolsters the themes by using the form in the first place. The filmmaker carefully builds his movie like a house of cards by trying to use the acting profession as a spring board and then expanding it to an exploration of self-definition, dreams, hallucinations, and detachment from reality. The film can be so head-spinning that it's possible to get dizzy and lose focus, but when The Congress is on point, it's as fascinating as it is gorgeous. Robin Wright plays a variation on her real-world self by being described as a hot actress who used to have the world at her fingertips, but a series of bad decisions and bad »

‘Young Ones’ Trailer: Michael Shannon Is Really Thirsty

28 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There wasn’t much hype surrounding Young Ones at Sundance. It was a movie on people’s radar, but after it screened, it didn’t generate much buzz. That’s a shame, because Jake Paltrow‘s second directorial effort is an excellent film. It’s a western with a twist of science-fiction. The sci-fi elements are mostly left in the background, though. Young Ones is a movie that could mostly do without all the futuristic machinery, it’s just an immensely cool cherry on the top. That CGI tech, by the way, is seamlessly rendered into these beautiful desert landscapes. They have a worn down, used quality that suits this old-fashioned story. Young Ones is about a family. At the beginning we see a father, played with charm and warmth by Michael Shannon, protecting his land from thieves. They’re there to steal his water supply. In this future — what year isn’t stated and doesn’t »

Zod and Beast Search for Water in Post-Apocalyptic Young Ones Trailer

25 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Man of Steel” villain Michael Shannon and “The X-Men’s” Nicolas Hoult team up to save the world in Jake Paltrow’s post-apocalyptic “Young Ones.” Or at least, they’re trying to save their dry stretch of the wastelands. Now all they need is a little bit of water… Check out the first trailer for Paltrow’s film, which sort of just showed up out of nowhere. Or maybe it’s been hiding itself until now. Either/or. It looks pretty good. Like Hoult’s upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road,” minus all the crazy stunt driving and, well, crazy people. This one looks all introspective and such. Set in the future when water is hard to find a teenage boy sets out to protect his family and survive. Starring Nicolas Hoult, Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Aimee Mullins. Drying up in limited release this October 17th. »

Trailer for the Sci-Fi Western Young Ones with Michael Shannon

21 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This sci-fi wester called Young Ones looks like an incredible film. The movie is set in near the future where water is very scarce. A teenage boy sets out on a journey to protect his family and survive. The film comes from writer and director Jake Paltrow, and it's "told in three chapters, which inventively layers Greek tragedy over an ethereal narrative that’s steeped deeply in the values of the American West." 

Not only does it have a great story, but it has an amazing cast, as well, that includes Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. I'm really excited about this movie, and you can read the synopsis for it below:

Trailers: Nightcrawler, Blizzard, Young

21 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Jake Gyllenhaal goes gritty in "Nightcrawler," a film about a man who joins the rather unethical world of seedy freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. After some strange teasers, a more straight forward full trailer has arrived and promises a gritty drama.

It looks like a fun turn from Gyllenhaal, but even more appealing is the glimpses of Rene Russo back in what looks to be a juicy supporting role. Aside from her all too brief cameos in the "Thor" films, Russo has been away from the screen for a decade so it's great to see her back.

Indie filmmaker Gregg Araki returns with "White Bird in a Blizzard," a new drama starring "Divergent" actress Shailene Woodley alongside the likes of Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett. Woodley plays a teenager who deals with her mother's disappearance while coming into her own, and »

Trailer for sci-fi/western ‘Young Ones’

21 August 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Set the near future where water is more precious than gold, farmer Ernest Holm has to defend his family for forces both external and internal in Jake Paltrow’s Young Ones. Starring the always great Michael Shannon and Hollywood’s next generation of up-and-comers Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee as his children and Nicholas Hoult as Fanning’s ambitious and possible bad influence boyfriend. The film looks like it could be an excellent throwback to classic westerns as many of the troupes of the genre can be found in the trailer, but it is given an extra layer with the science fiction commentary. The film will be released later this year on October 17th.
