Factory Films today unveiled the official movie trailer for Ido Fluk’s The Ticket, starring Dan Stevens (Beauty and the …
Dan Stevens is certainly a busy man at the moment; he’s currently starring in the Marvel X-Men series Legion, and next month takes on the role of The Prince in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Following that, we’ll see him in director Ido Fluk’s indie drama The Ticket alongside Malin Akerman and Oliver Platt, and we’ve got a look at the first trailer below…
“After James (Dan Stevens), a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive to make a better life for himself. However, his new improvements—a nicer home, a higher paying job, tailored suits, luxury car—leave little room for the people who were part of his old, simpler life: his plain wife (Malin Akerman) and close friend Bob (Oliver Platt). As his relationships buckle under the strain of his snowballing ambition, it becomes uncertain if he can ever return from darkness. »

Dan Stevens is seemingly everywhere these days. On the small screen, he’s got Legion. On the big screen, he’s the titular Beast in Beauty and the Beast. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as he’s also on the indie circuit, too, commanding your attention with the mysterious new film The Ticket, which hands him either a miracle or a curse – depending on how you see things.
Written and directed by Ido Fluk, The Ticket finds James (Stevens), a blind man, miraculously given the gift of sight one odd morning. Faith is obviously the answer here, but as this trailer suggests, there’s a lot of ugliness a man must bear to see when given vision. Malin Ackerman, Oliver Platt, Kerry Bishé, Liza J. Bennett and Skylar Gaertner fill out the ensemble.
The Ticket played at Tiff last fall, where it got a somewhat underwhelming response. Nevertheless, »

With his “Beauty and the Beast” live action remake slated to hit theaters in March, and his X-Men spinoff series “Legion” premiering this month on FX, 2017 is a huge year for Dan Stevens. Now, Shout! Factory has released the first trailer for the actor’s next big screen project, “The Ticket.” Watch the clip below.
In “The Ticket,” Stevens star as James, a man who suddenly regains his vision after having been blind from a young age. But his newfound obsession with the superficial and a desire to create a better life for himself threatens to send him back to a metaphorical darkness. Meanwhile, his relationships with his wife Sam (Malin Akerman) and close friend Bob (Oliver Platt) begin to fall apart.

"Like you wouldn't have done the same thing if you had the chance..." Shout Factory has debuted a trailer for an indie drama titled The Ticket, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year. The Ticket stars Dan Stevens (who can be seen as the Beast in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie) as a blind man who regains his vision, only to find himself becoming metaphorically blinded by his obsession for the superficial. The full cast includes Malin Akerman, Kerry Bishé, Oliver Platt, Liza J. Bennett, Peter Mark Kendall and Ekaterina Samsonov. This looks like a very deep, dark, depressing drama addressing some heavy themes of passion and obsession and ambition. Haven't heard much about it, but seems intense. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ido Fluk's The Ticket, direct from YouTube: After James (Dan Stevens), a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes »

Although it premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, Shout! Factory was smart to wait until this spring to release the drama The Ticket. On the heels of Legion and Beauty and the Beast, the star of Dan Stevens has now risen. In his new film, he plays a blind man who regains his vision and finds himself becoming metaphorically blinded by his obsession for the superficial. Ahead of a release this April, the first trailer has now landed.
We said in our review, “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king, which is one of the lessons that the protagonist at the heart of Ido Fluk’s moral thriller The Ticket learns firsthand. The title refers to an antidote told one too many times about a man who prayed to God to win the lottery without every buying a ticket. I suppose, like James (Dan Stevens »

Another week, another installment of VOD Vault – taking a look at some on-demand releases that have hit various VOD platforms recently. It’s been a few months since our last installment, so what say we kick off this reboot of sorts with two movies on the opposite ends of the filmic spectrum: low-budget Western-style crime action/drama The Good, the Bad and the Dead and Rupture, the latest film – a sci-fi thriller – from actress Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo).
