Exclusive Interview With Dave Green And Henry Gayden On Earth To Echo

3 July 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earth to Echo marks the feature directing and screenwriting debuts of Dave Green and Henry Gayden. A throwback to classics like E.T. and The Goonies, where it’s up to the children to save the day without any help from surrounding adults, the film follows three youngsters whose families are being forced out of their homes due to highway construction. As they are packing to move, the kids start receiving strange messages on their cell phones, leading them to ride their bikes out into the middle of nowhere. They eventually come across a small, friendly alien who’s stranded on Earth and is looking for a way back home.

Recently, at the La press day for the film, I had the chance to sit down for an exclusive interview with Green and Gayden to discuss Earth to Echo. Among other things, the friendly duo spoke about the challenges they faced on set, »

Thn Talks Teen Movies With ‘Beyond Clueless’ Director Charlie Lyne

25 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Premiering at SXSW earlier this year, Beyond Clueless is a documentary which journeys into the  mind, body and soul of the teen movie, as seen through the eyes of over 200 modern coming-of-age classics. Narrated by cult teen star Fairuza Balk and with an original score by Summer Camp the film will delight teen movie fans as they reminisce over their favourites. Thn spoke to director Charlie Lyne after the film was presented at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014.

Congratulations on the movie; it’s great to see teen movies like Loser back on the big screen; who doesn’t love that!

This is the great thing, everyone comes out and wants to thank me for putting a specific film in and it’s always a different one. No-one’s ever mentioned Loser to me before so yeah, it’s very vindicating.

What’s the usual movie people mention?

Exclusive video: A teen suffers a 'Groundhog Day' of sexual humiliation in 'Premature'

24 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In Groundhog Day, Bill Murray wakes up every day in the same Pennsylvania hamlet to repeatedly endure the most provincial of American holidays. In Edge of Tomorrow, Tom Cruise’s day is reset every time he takes a bullet in the head or gets killed by invading aliens. In the new comedy Premature, a teenager is stuck in a similar time loop, but his reset button might be the most excruciating yet: failed—but extremely close!—attempts to lose his virginity.

Dan Beers, who famously landed Murray for his 2008 short, Fcu: Fact Checkers Unit, came up with the idea for Premature with co-writer Mathew Harawitz. »

Entertainment Geekly: A call for an end to serious blockbusters

12 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

I never really had my Godzilla moment as a kid. The closest I ever came was a Godzilla franchise marathon one Saturday afternoon. I watched while everyone else was outside doing outside things, and my main memory of the marathon was thinking to myself, “Geez, these movies really drag when Godzilla’s not onscreen.” I think I was 10?

11 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Rob is facing the biggest day of his life.

Juck Somsaman: Why the Asian Pacific Animation Scene Is Booming

11 June 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the key narratives at the Annecy festival’s International Animation Film Market (Mifa) is the burgeoning attendance of participants from Asia. Variety spoke to Juck Somsaman from Thailand’s The Monk Studios, whose “Duck Fight: Fist of the Feather” was one of six titles selected for Mifa’s feature film pitches.

Movie animation production is growing in Thailand. Why?

The Thai film market itself is very small, but the whole Asian Pacific region, including China, is huge and demand is picking up. Resource-wise, we see a lot of growth in the skilled local artists and talents, which is the key to achieving high-quality at low cost. The number of graduates in this field has been steadily increasing year by year. The lower cost of production also lures outsourcing jobs to the region, while the regional demand for IP is increasing. Our films are created to fill the need »

Allison Janney Joins The D.U.F.F For CBS Films

11 June 2014 6:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The onslaught of adaptations of Young Adult fiction continues with The D.U.F.F – an upcoming movie from CBS Films, which has just added award-winning Allison Janney to its cast. Based on the debut novel of author Kody Keplinger, the film has Academy Award winner Ari Sandel (Aim High) on board to direct, from a screenplay penned by Josh A. Cagan (Undergrads).

With Mae Whitman (Arrested Development) in the lead role, the story sees a high school senior devastated as her happy world is shaken by the realization that her fellow students routinely refer to her as The D.U.F.F (Designated Ugly Fat Friend to pretty students). Incensed, she drafts in the help of a male friend (Robbie Amell from The Tomorrow People) to aid in her personal reinvention, as she moves to undermine the school’s ruthless label maker (Bella Thorne from Blended).

The Modest Where We Started Is an Engaging Two-Character Portrait of an Affair

10 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Where We Started, the third feature film from writer-director Chris Hansen, is a modest, unassuming two-character portrait about a couple of married strangers — mechanic and struggling actor Will (Matthew Brumlow), unsatisfied housewife and mother Nora (Cora Vander Broek) — who meet at a motel and end up spending a long night together.

Their connection is formed over cigarettes, cosmopolitans, late-night diner food, a shared love of John Hughes movies, and flirtatious arguments about make-out music.

Hansen, the director of the Film and Digital Media program at Baylor University, crafts their conversations with a delicate mix of shot/reverse-shot cutting and longer shots that contain both actors, giving each of them space and time to nurture the dueli »

'The Fault in Our Stars': Are those tears of joy, critics?

6 June 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Perhaps the people who run studios thought Divergent was the big Ya novel to launch Shailene Woodley into the stratosphere, but her performance in the cancer weepie The Fault in Our Stars might be the role that makes her a giant star.

Based on John Green’s 2012 best-seller, director Josh Boone’s movie tells the story of a cynical 16-year-old cancer patient (Woodley), saddled with an oxygen tank and breathing tube, and the more-dynamic, free-spirited remission patient (Ansel Elgort) who falls in love with her. “A generation of teens like [Woodley's character] have been weaned on Ya novels, leading to more discerning palates, »

Jonah Hill Jumps Into Controversy Just As His Career Gets Serious

3 June 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For someone who has achieved a high degree of fame in his 20s, Jonah Hill managed to stay out of the tabloids and gossip columns—until now. This past weekend he unleashed a homophobic slur at a paparazzo while he was walking with a friend in the Larchmont Village area of Los Angeles.

Losing his cool, the 30-year-old star lashed out at a photographer who was teasing him about his flowered shorts. “Suck my d—k, you f—-t,” Hill told the man who had been trailing him all day.

Ironically in this week’s Variety cover story, Hill was asked how he’s been able to avoid attracting negative press all these years, something he attributed to his good upbringing and working nonstop.

“Since ‘Superbad,’ I haven’t taken a break. I go make movies, so I don’t’ have the time to be a mess,” he says, “At least not yet. »

Summer Movies Flashback 1984: Indiana Jones, Gremlins and Ghostbusters

2 June 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In honor of the 2014 summer movie season, Team HitFix will be delivering a mini-series of articles flashing back to key summers from years past. There will be one each month, diving into the marquee events of the era, their impact on the writer and their implications on today's multiplex culture. We continue today with a look back at the summer of 1984. I turned 14 on May 26, 1984, just as the summer movie season was getting started. These days, the summer movie season seems to begin in mid-March, and I think it's because studios want real estate that they can own. And it feels like the appetite for event films is something the audience has year-round now, so if you're able to make something that excites the audience, why not find a place for it where it's not going head to head with all the other giant event films of the year? For the purposes of this piece, »
