‘iBoy’ Review (Netflix Original)

31 January 2017 5:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bill Milner, Maisie Williams, Miranda Richardson, Rory Kinnear, Jordan Bolger, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Armin Karima, McKell David | Written by Joe Barton | Directed by Adam Randall

Every year now we are inundated with superhero films. Marvel and DC are doing battle tor movie supremacy, and it is arguable that Marvel are well ahead in the battle. Netflix have released a new film that may not really compete with those two huge companies, but iBoy is an interesting take on the superhero genre that is well worth checking out.

Tom (Bill Milner) is just an average boy, until he gets shot in the head, resulting in the phone he was using at the time fragmenting and embedding in his head. When he wakes up, he finds himself able to connect to electronic gadgets, and even the ability to control them. Giving him the perfect set of tools to seek revenge on »

iBoy Review

30 January 2017 11:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s no getting around the latest Netflix original’s monumentally dumb premise. A British teenager has an accident that causes shards of his smartphone to become lodged in his brain. This grants him iPhone superpowers, leading him to battle crime as the heroic vigilante iBoy.

Okay, okay, stop giggling. Yes, it’s stupid. Yes, it doesn’t make sense. And yes, ‘iBoy’ is a godawful superhero name. But consider how ridiculous it is for a teenage boy to be bitten by a radioactive spider and getting spider superpowers, or four pet turtles being splashed by mutagenic goo and becoming ninjas, or a scientist being irradiated and turning into a big angry green man or… Well you get the picture. My point is that superhero origin stories are usually pretty silly and you shouldn’t be so quick to judge iBoy, an unexpectedly compelling and contemporary take on the classical superhero template. »

Movie Review – iBoy (2017)

27 January 2017 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

iBoy, 2017.

Directed by Adam Randall.

Starring Bill Millner, Maisie Williams, Miranda Richardson and Rory Kinnear.

Synopsis:

When geeky Tom (Bill Milner) discovers his friend Lucy (Maisie Williams) being viciously attacked, the thugs turn their attention to him and he’s badly beaten up.  As he recovers, he learns that fragments from his mobile phone are embedded in his brain, giving him strange new powers.  All the better to take revenge for what happened to Lucy and run her attackers out of town.

The trailer for iBoy took off like a rocket when it was launched a few weeks ago, with over one million hits on just one night.  Not bad going for a low-budget British sci-fi fantasy, even if the presence of Game of ThronesMaisie Williams probably gave the figures a boost.

On the face of it, there’s nothing especially new about the film.  The idea of somebody »

iBoy review – smartphone superhero needs a fun upgrade

25 January 2017 7:43 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Maisie Williams and Bill Milner give revenge a digital twist fighting London street gangs with accidentally acquired hacking powers, though it would be useful to dial down the urban realism

This looked like an interesting generic combination: a superhero movie served up in a pork-pie casing of Brit urban realism; there’s a classy cast including Maisie Williams and Rory Kinnear, and iBoy could well be a commercial success. But for me the superpower idea can only work with humour and lightness of touch: and there is a persistent and disconcerting joylessness about this.

Bill Milner plays Tom, a shy, lonely teenage boy on an estate who interrupts some men who have sexually assaulted his friend Lucy (Williams) in a neighbouring flat. They shoot at him and in the ensuing violent chaos, bits of his smartphone get stuck in his brain and he awakens from a coma with superpowers: he »

Exclusive: Bill Milner on Netflix superhero movie iBoy

24 January 2017 8:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

iBoy the latest Netflix Original film launches globally on the 27th of January. The film based on the young adult novel by Kevin Brooks stars Bill Milner and proves beyond doubt that this talented actor has seamlessly made the transition from child prodigy, to become one of the most promising up and coming movie stars out there.

We caught up with Bill (for the second time in recent months) to talk about iBoy and how he is proud that the film didn’t stray away from tackling the darker issues that affect teenagers nowadays. He also discusses the intensity of working on Steven Knight’s Locke as well as the importance of actors exposing themselves to different types of films and genres.

There are a lot of movies involving super powers out there at the moment, you yourself were involved in the X-Men franchise. What do you »

iBoy Review

23 January 2017 7:57 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

Though a company that seem to have become married to the Marvel Franchise, Netflix are now trying their luck with a superhero of a different kind, in Adam Randall’s iBoy. Adapted from the Kevin Brooks adult novel, iBoy is the director’s sophomore feature film, and this high concept thriller follows a teenager named Tom (Bill Milner)who develops a strange set of abilities that fall somewhere between what Neo could do in the Matrix and what Apple devices could probably do in the not too distance future.

The first thing iBoy gets right as a film is steering past the absurdities of its premise without ever getting bogged down in explaining the mechanics behind it. After a tragic accident Tom has fragments of his smartphone lodged in his brain and soon realises he can manipulate technology. It is basically »

17 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aardman and StudioCanal have announced that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has joined the voice cast of Nick Park’s hotly-anticipated prehistoric animated comedy Early Man.

Williams will lend her voice to Goona, the gallant and indomitable rebel who befriends the film’s hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne), who helps steer him through the clash of the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilisations. Tom Hiddleston is also on board as the villainous Lord Nooth.

“I’m a huge Aardman fan – having the chance to work with Nick Park is a dream come true, especially as I get to voice such a fantastic character as Goona,” said Williams. “I can’t wait for audiences to meet her”.

“Maisie is a terrific actress, and she is of course no stranger to embodying a valiant heroine,” added director Nick Park. “I’m most excited to see her breathe life into Goona – I know »

Check Out The First Trailer For Netflix's New Superhero Drama iBOY Starring Game Of Thrones' Maisie Williams

13 January 2017 3:33 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming superhero drama, iBoy. The premise may seen a bit silly (see the official synopsis below), but this actually looks like it might be pretty good. Plus, it boasts quite a cast.  The movie stars Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones, hopefully New Mutants), as well the great Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter) and Rory Kinnear (Penny Dreadful) as the villain. You may also recognize the actor who plays iBoy himself, Bill Milner, as the young Magneto from X-Men: First Class. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you make of it. “iBoy” follows Tom (Bill Milner), an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain.

Coming Distractions: Oh boy, here comes iBoy

12 January 2017 5:22 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Netflix has released the trailer for its latest movie, iBoy, the film that dares ask: what if you had a smartphone…in your head?! The movie stars Game Of ThronesMaisie Williams and Bill Milner, playing a teenager who ends up with pieces of his smartphone in his brain after getting shot by some local criminals, an injury that obviously leaves him, not permanently impaired, but with the ability to see and interact with people’s texts and funny cat videos. Rather than loaning himself out to the Nsa, though, Milner’s character becomes a low-rent, Watch_Dogs-esque superhero, dubbed with a name that doesn’t quite skirt Apple corporation copyright.

Given the incredible goofiness of its title, iBoy—not to be confused with Comedy Bang! Bang!’s very different iBrain—looks surprisingly dark, with Williams being menaced by British gangsters. Meanwhile, Milner grits his teeth and taps yes on »

Teen Goes Superhero in UK Thriller Iboy [Trailer]

12 January 2017 12:24 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I like unconventional superhero stories and Adam Randall's new movie certainly looks like it fits the bill - I just wish it had a better title.

iBoy, yes, that's *actually* what it's called, is based on a book of the same name and stars Bill Milner (Son of Rambow, X-Men: First Class) as an awkward teenage boy who has a crush on a girl played by Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones).

She invites him over to hang out and in a case of wrong-place-wrong-time, is shot by a group of thugs. He survives the ordeal but fragments of his cell phone lodged in his brain have tweaked something and now he seems to have some sort of x-ray vision along with some other extrasensory abilities so of course, he tries to use his powers for good - with mixed results.

Maisie Williams's Netflix Movie Will Hold You Over Until Game of Thrones Is Back

12 January 2017 10:55 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Game of Thrones won't be back until, well, who even knows, but you can get your Maisie Williams fix elsewhere. She's starring in a new film exclusive to Netflix called iBoy, about a teenager (Bill Milner) who gets fragments of his smartphone embedded into his brain during a violent encounter. He unexpectedly develops strange abilities, and they lead him down a dangerous path. Dun, dun, dun! That's all fine and well, but where does Williams fit into this? She plays the guy's friend, who is assaulted by the gang. Judging by the trailer, she's much more than a damsel in distress. Though she's been in non-Game of Thrones roles before, it's especially strange to see her out of armor and in modern clothes this time. The movie hits Netflix on Jan. 12!

Trailer for iBoy starring Maisie Williams & Bill Milner

12 January 2017 4:04 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Following on from the first images for the movie yesterday, here’s the brand new first look at present day sci-fi movie iBoy. The film is the first to come from the UK wing of streaming service Netflix and from what we’ve heard and now seen looks fabulous.

The idea comes from the mind of novelist Kevin Brooks and has been turned into a movie by Adam Randall. Yesterday while writing the images piece, I stumbled upon a concept video piece created a few years ago which showed X-Men star Will Poulter in the lead role as a teenager who after getting assaulted by some thugs, ends up with shards of smartphone inserted into his brain. After waking up from hospital, it’s clear that the incident has left him rather a different young man than he used to be.

Poulter doesn’t appear in the »
