Sam Worthington (Avatar) has a new film sci-fi action-thriller coming out called The Titan and it actually looks kinda interesting. The story is set in the near future and it centers on a man who signs up for a military program that will transformer him into an enhanced human called "Titans" who would be capable of living on Saturn's moon Titan, which they want to colonize.

Sam Worthington in First Trailer for Weird Sci-Fi Action 'The Titan'

"What if Titan could become our home?" Voltage Pictures has revealed the first international trailer for a peculiar new sci-fi film titled The Titan, from German filmmaker Lennart Ruff. Set in the near future, the plot is about a military program to develop superhumans called "Titans" to help us colonize Saturn's moon Titan, but the side effects are deadly. Sam Worthington stars as a hot shot Air Force pilot who becomes the first successful Titan creation, and you can see he looks a bit weird by the end. The cast includes Taylor Schilling, Tom Wilkinson, Agyness Deyn, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Corey Johnson. It seems this film is much more about the training program and action on Earth than anything up in space, which doesn't sound promising. There's a cool idea behind this, but it all looks too weird to be any good. See for yourself. Here's the first official trailer for Lennart Ruff's The Titan,

SAG Awards predictions secret: Size matters for comedies like ‘Orange is the New Black,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Desperate Housewives’ …
When it comes to rewarding the best comedic cast on television, the SAG Awards often simply go with the biggest cast. Recent winners like “Orange is the New Black” (2014-2016), “Glee” (2009), “Desperate Housewives” (2004-2005) and “Ally McBeal” (1998) all prevailed thanks in part to having the most cast members on the voting ballot. Interestingly enough, all four of these were also hour-long dramedies, which suggests SAG voters are more apt to give the prize to large casts when they’re also in large productions.

What does this statistic mean in terms of predicting the 2018 SAG Awards? “Orange is the New Black” once again boasts the biggest comedy cast with a record-setting 45 men and women nominated for the Netflix prison series. That’s up from 37 cast members in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. Of this year’s other nominated ensembles, Netflix’s “Glow” consists of 18 cast members, followed by HBO’s “Veep” at 15, ABC

Santa Barbara Film Festival to Open as Planned in Wake of Montecito Mudslides

The Santa Barbara Film Festival is moving ahead as planned with its 33rd edition, opening on Jan. 31, in the wake of the fires and flooding that recently devastated the city, leaving 20 victims dead in the Montecito area.

Roger Durling, executive director of the festival, addressed the issue Wednesday in a letter that said, “Many people have been asking me if the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will take place. My answer is an emphatic ‘Yes.'”

He continued, “How do you do a film festival following the immense tragedy unfolding in Montecito and Southern California? Well — the honest answer is that it is needed now more than ever. Movies have always provided a sense of community. It is an opportunity for people to gather, reflect, experience, feel, and process.”

Durling noted that during the Great Depression, Americans flocked to theaters. “They did not do this because movies can be easily categorized as a distraction,” he said. “Yes

Santa Barbara Film Festival Announces 2018 Slate, Will Open with Emilio Estevez’s ‘the public’

Despite the devastating mudslides that overwhelmed the Santa Barbara, California community of Montecito last week — resulting in at least 20 deaths and the destruction of 100-plus homes — the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (Sbiff) will go on as usual. A reason to celebrate is “needed now more than ever,” wrote Sbiff director Roger Durling in a letter soon to be shared with festival-goers. He continued, “It is an opportunity for people to gather – reflect – experience – feel – and process,” noting that cinema attendance was strong during the Great Depression.

Launched in 1986, this year’s Sbiff will include films from 58 countries. Numbered among its 45 world premieres is opening night film “the public,” the first feature written and directed by Emilio Estevez since 2010’s “The Way.” Set at a Cincinnati public library, the film follows its homeless and marginalized patrons during a dangerous cold spell. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Jena Malone (“Neon Demon

Pat Healy Is a Sad ‘Man in Ceiling’ in Wacky Short Film About Temp Job From Hell — Watch

Pat Healy Is a Sad ‘Man in Ceiling’ in Wacky Short Film About Temp Job From Hell — Watch
Actor and filmmaker Pat Healy seems to pop up everywhere, but a corporate office ceiling is a new surprise — even for him. Hot off a bit reporter part in Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” Healy lends his oddball comedic talents to “Man in Ceiling,” a short film that turns office mundanity into the loopy stuff of surreal comedy. Healy stars as a disgruntled office worker shirking his responsibilities by hiding in the ceiling above his desk.

It’s the kind of role Healy excels in; that ubiquitous face practically screams disheveled corporate renegade. A filmmaker in his own right, Healy recently brought his madcap sensibilities to “Take Me,” which he directed and starred in opposite Taylor Schilling (“Orange is the New Black”).

First Trailer for Public Library Drama 'The Public' with Emilio Estevez

"We're a public library, we're not a shelter for the homeless." The first trailer has debuted for the latest film written & directed by Emilio Estevez (where has he been all this time?) titled The Public, which is a reference to a public library in Cincinnati. On top of writing & directing, Estevez also stars as one of the managers of the library. When an Arctic cold comes into the city, a group of homeless people decide to hold an "occupy" movement and camp out in the library. The full cast features Jena Malone, Christian Slater, Alec Baldwin, Taylor Schilling, Gabrielle Union, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jeffrey Wright, Ki Hong Lee, Richard T. Jones, and Jacob Vargas. This actually seems like a fascinating take on this kind of story. Pretty much every public library in every city has to deal with homeless people, and yet this seems to show how important this place

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Critical Roundup: Reviewers Think the Force Is Strong With This One
Reviews for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” are finally in, and nearly everyone who’s taken the latest trip to that galaxy far, far away is extremely happy to have done so. IndieWire’s Eric Kohn calls Rian Johnson’s contribution to the franchise “the most satisfying ‘Star Wars’ movie in decades,” a sentiment shared by many — other than a few dissenters (like this writer), most reviewers are highly positive.

Matt Zoller Seitz’s four-star RogerEbert.com review is equally enthusiastic:

“Writer/director Rian Johnson’s ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is a sprawling, incident- and character-packed extravaganza that picks up at the end of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’ and guides the series into unfamiliar territory. It’s everything a fan could want from a ‘Star Wars’ film and then some.
