Review: Entertaining 'Dope' asks if you're a geek or a menace or both

18 minutes ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - The 2015 edition of the Sundance Film Festival has already brought us starmaking performances from Bel Powley ("The Diary of a Teenage Girl") and Thomas Mann ("Me and Earl and the Dying Girl").  But it turns out they are not alone. It appears we have a triumvirate of breakout talent in coming of age flicks with the addition of "Dope's" Shameik Moore.  The Atlanta native is freakin' fantastic as an Inglewood high school senior trying to stay true to himself in Rick Famuyiwa's entertaining new dramedy. Famuyiwa, who is best known for 1999's underrated drama "The Wood," has fashioned a crowd-pleaser in "Dope," a movie that brings a '90s hip-hop aesthetic to a contemporary story.  The director's muse is Malcolm (Moore), a self described African-American geek who is in love with the aforementioned era (almost everything was better then). He spends most of his time »

Watch: Trailer for 'Dope', the Buzziest Title Out of Sundance So Far

17 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The buzziest title out of the Sundance Film Festival so far seems to be Dope from writer/director Rick Famuyiwa (Brown Sugar, The Wood) with a cast that includes Shameik Moore (pictured above), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Kiersey Clemons, Blake Anderson, Zoe Kravitz (Divergent), A$AP Rocky, Keith Stanfield (Short Term 12) and Forest Whitaker who narrates and also serves as producer. Open Road picked up the film for distribution after this weekend's first screening with stellar reviews. Here's the synopsis: Malcolm (Moore) is a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts share a voracious appreciation for all things '90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colours and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day. »

TheWrap Party Report catches Wu-Tang Clan, Nick Nolte and Kevin Bacon turning heads Saturday, while Michael Fassbender’s “job” keeps him away from Utah

“Is Ben Silverman somewhere in here?” Donovan Leitch shouted in to the microphone in the sweaty basement of Cisero’s just before midnight on Saturday night.

Leitch was on stage fronting a supergroup that included Mark McGrath, Dave Kushner, Jane’s Addiction’s Chris Chaney, and Matisyahu. If Ben Silverman was in the room, he was as quiet as his emails, even if a pocket of jacketed bros cheered the shout-out.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Dope’

24 January 2015 11:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sure to be one of the buzzier commercial prospects coming out of Sundance this year, “Dope” is a buoyant teenage caper that has at least as much in common with John Hughes-style high-school comedies as it does with most ‘hood narratives involving drugs, gangs and crime. That mix risks silliness at times, but there’s so much playful energy and wit to Rick Famuyiwa’s indie-est project since “The Wood” (1999) that few viewers will mind. A soundtrack featuring new songs by Pharrell Williams will be a big plus in promoting a film that might conceivably fall between arthouse and mainstream camps theatrically, but should play well to any wider audiences it reaches.

High-school senior Malcolm (Shameik Moore) embodies one cliche demographically: He’s a poor black Los Angeleno supported by a single working mom (Kimberly Elise), his father long gone (back to Africa, in fact). But in other ways, »

New UK Trailer for Ethan Hawke’s Good Kill

24 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A UK trailer has been released for Ethan Hawke’s upcoming film Good Kill. It was directed by Andrew Niccol, who previously worked with Hawke on the fantastic sci-fi film Gattaca. The war-based thriller tells the story of a drone pilot who is struggling with his job and the missions that he's ordered to complete. It looks like a great, intense movie, and I’m looking forward to seeing it. Bruce Greenwood, Jake Abel, January Jones, and Zoe Kravitz also star in the film, and here's the synopsis:

Good Kill tells the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones) and kids in the suburbs for the other half. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is »

Insurgent character posters for Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and more!

23 January 2015 10:23 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Divergent Series: Insurgent is turning the tables on characters old and new in five new posters, unveiling an upside-down dystopian world.  New character posters created for our heroes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), and newcomers Evelyn (Naomi Watts), Johanna (Octavia Spencer) are great, but the one we really need to keep our eye on is Jeanine (Kate Winslet).

Jeanine gets not one, but two character posters – the traditional still poster and one pretty intense motion poster that may have given us cause to jump when watching with speakers turned on full volume.   

Picking up where last year’s Divergent left off, we now find Tris and co. on the run amongst the ruins of a futuristic Chicago.  Hunted by Janine, the power-hungry leader of the Erudite faction, Tris is searching for answers and allies as she comes to terms with the decisions of her past on a »

New UK trailer for Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill

23 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer has been released for Andrew Niccol’s drone-pilot drama Good Kill starring Ethan Hawke, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

Good Kill tells the story of a Las Vegas fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot (Ethan Hawke), who fights the Taliban via remote control for half of his day, then goes home to his wife (January Jones) and kids in the suburbs for the other half. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end?

Good Kill reunites Niccol with his Gattaca and Lord of War star Ethan Hawke, who portrays a drone pilot operating out of Las Vegas who begins to question the value of fighting in such a disconnected war. The rest of the cast includes X-Men: First Class stars January Jones and Zoe Kravitz alongside »

Everything is ‘Dope’ in first trailer for the upcoming Sundance film

21 January 2015 8:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

If Spring Breakers met the hip-hop scene in California, it would be the first trailer for the upcoming Sundance film, Dope.

Entertainment Weekly dropped the first trailer for the film on Tuesday. Dope follows Malcolm, a high school geek with a high-top fade, carefully navigating life in The Bottoms, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Inglewood, California. He and his fellow outcasts share a voracious appreciation for all things ’90s hip-hop, opting to sport Cross-Colours and Z. Cavariccis at the risk of being clowned at school. He dreams of attending Harvard, but first he has to make it home every day.

When a drug dealer takes a shine to Malcolm and invites him to his birthday party, Malcolm’s crew is swirled into a hilarious blender of offbeat characters and bad choices where redemption can only be found in Bitcoin.

The film stars Shameik Moore as Malcolm, The Grand Budapest Hotel star Tony Revolori, »

'Dope' Trailer with Asap Rocky & 'Workaholics' Blake Anderson

21 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Revenge of the Nerds meets Boyz N the Hood in the first trailer for Dope. This comedic hood thriller mash-up is set to make it's World Premiere in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Giving it a leg above the competition are appearances by rapper A$AP Rocky and Workaholics star Blake Anderson.

In Dope, Malcolm is an anomaly, a "geek living in the Bottoms," the drug-infested, gang-run ghetto part of Inglewood. A victim of circumstance, but with admirable ambition, Malcolm gets caught in the crossfires of a drug buy gone bad. Using his wits and considerable smarts, he manages to take a dicey situation and make it work in his favor.

Dope features an amazing ensemble of stars including Shameik Moore (Cartoon Network's Incredible Crew), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Kiersey Clemons (Amazon's Transparent, MTV's Eye Candy), Kimberly Elise (VH1's Hit the Floor, »

Watch: War Is A First-Person Shooter In The New Trailer For Andrew Niccol's 'Good Kill' Starring Ethan Hawke

21 January 2015 5:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Ethan Hawke's cool, Beatles-loving Dad from "Boyhood" made a few different decisions in his life, he might've ended up as the character in "Good Kill." And the questions around his career and duty to this country are the backbone of the latest drama from Andrew Niccol ("Gattaca," "Lord Of War") and a new trailer has arrived today. Co-starring January Jones, Bruce Greenwood and Zoe Kravitz, the story follows an Air Force major acclimating to the new ways of war, conducting missions overseas with drones, all from the safety of piloting them from U.S. soil. But when war is a "first-person shooter," how do you live with life-or-death decisions made by your index finger? It's a film with timely subject matter, and a decent cast, and while our own Oli Lyttelton had issues with it when he caught it at the Venice Film Festival, you still might want to target this one yourself. »
