How To Be Single Review

11 February 2016 12:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If a romantic comedy called How to Be Single sounds rather baldly antithetical, that’s because the title is a bit of a misnomer. No, the commercials didn’t overtly deceive you: this is a glossy, New York-set ensemble rom-com, and it is populated by an assortment of camera-ready, charismatic actors, all of whom play single folk struggling to navigate the Big Apple’s hectic dating scene. Its characters are also all flying solo, for a variety of reasons and with wide-ranging levels of success.

But when it comes to actually instructing audiences in the ways of the lonely heart, the movie, directed by Christian Ditter, doesn’t have a clue. Its title would have been more accurate with punctuation added, so that it would appear less like a college seminar course (How to Be Single) and more like the socially regressive, queasily single-shaming lament it actually is for most of its length (How? »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

When Marnie Was There movie review: girls have adolescent angst too

3 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Enchanting, startling; a rare story about a girl at a precarious age. Full of that exquisite Studio Ghibli sorcery that captures the beauty of the ordinary. I’m “biast” (pro): love Studio Ghibli’s films

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s another enchanting animated film from Studio Ghibli, but this one is really special. Less overtly fantastical than some of Ghibli’s other projects — though it’s still primarily a ghost story — When Marnie Was There is grounded in an adolescent reality that we almost never see onscreen: that girls have a rough time, too, in the transition from childhood to adulthood, and in finding a path through conflicting and confusing emotions to our own true identities.

The details of her pain are doled out slowly, over the course of her story, »

'I Touch Myself' by the Divinyls: 5 Things You Didn't Know About the '90s Hit 25 Years Later

28 January 2016 8:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It was 25 years ago that an Australian rock band had fans proudly singing a song in which they boasted about touching themselves. Yes, the Divinyls' biggest hit, "I Touch Myself," arrived on the band's self-titled album on Jan. 29, 1991. The single had dropped the previous December, but as the full album hit the shelves, the track was slowly climbing the charts to become the band's biggest hit in the U.S. - and quite an unlikely one, when you consider the subject matter.

'Masters of the Universe' Eyes 'Terminator Salvation' Director

22 January 2016 12:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has been developing a reboot of Masters of the Universe since 2009, when they acquired the project from Warner Bros., but over the past seven years, the project has never fully gotten off the ground. Today we have a new report from Deadline that reveals that project has been given a new lease on life, with filmmaker McG now in talks to direct. The studio hasn't set a release date at this time, and it isn't known when they are aiming to start production quite yet.

The franchise is set on the planet Eternia, following a young man named Adam who has the power to turn himself into a mighty warrior named He-Man. Adam becomes the planet's last hope to defeat the evil Skeletor, who has devastated the entire planet on his quest to conquer castle Greyskull. We last reported on this project in October when Christopher Yost signed on to write the script, »

Term Life Trailer: Vince Vaughn’s Haircut and International Pop Sensation Hailee Steinfeld Go on the Lam

21 January 2016 5:59 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Term Life follows a heist man (Vince Vaughn) who goes on the run with his daughter (America’s sweetheart Hailee Steinfeld) after a job goes sour. Also, he takes out a massive life insurance policy on himself and has to stay alive until it kicks in — this doesn't come up in the trailer, but it seems like a crucial part of the film’s synopsis. Breaking Bad’s Jonathan Banks, Vince Vaughn’s buddy Jon Favreau, and Terrence Howard (yes, really) also appear. »

‘Term Life’ Trailer: Dopey Kids, Bad Choices, and Vince Vaughn

21 January 2016 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Over two years ago, Universal axed this adaptation of the Image Comics’ Term Life. Adapted by the comic’s writer, Andy Lieberman, the thriller was quickly revived. In 2014, cameras were rolling for director Peter Billingsley‘s (Couples Retreat) film, which stars Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld. Since principal photography, we’ve heard little about the project, but it’s finally coming out this March. Watch […]

First Trailer for 'Term Life' Starring Vince Vaughn & Hailee Steinfeld

20 January 2016 4:13 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"No one can connect us to any of this." Focus World has unveiled a trailer for the film Term Life, a crime drama starring Vince Vaughn as a man being hunted by hitmen trying to extended his life in hopes that his insurance policy will kick in just in time to pay out to his estranged daughter. Hailee Steinfeld co-stars as his daughter, and the cast features Taraji P. Henson, Jon Favreau (in some kind of role), Terrence Howard, Annabeth Gish, Bill Paxton, Mike Epps and Jordi Mollà. This isn't so much of a comedy, but it has some funny moments, though I still can't help feel Vaughn seems out of place. Maybe it's just me. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Peter Billingsley's Term Life, originally debuted by Yahoo: A guy (Vince Vaughn) wanted around town by various hit men hopes to stay alive long enough for »

Vince Vaughn’s Life Hangs By A Thread In Thrilling Trailer For Term Life

20 January 2016 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

True Detective season 2 may have stooped far below the bar of expectations set by its predecessor, but Vince Vaughn has still caught the action-thriller bug, as today’s thrilling first trailer for Peter Billingsley’s (Couples Retreat) Term Life attests.

While Vaughn headlines the drama as Nick Barrow, Pitch Perfect 2 and True Grit actress Hailee Steinfeld is on board to complete the father-daughter duo. Term Life will push the pair to the brink, too, given that Vaughn’s character, upon receiving umpteen threats against his life, takes out a comprehensive life insurance policy to carve out a healthy sum to leave to his estranged daughter.

There’s a hitch to that plan, though; said policy doesn’t take into affect for a full 21 days, forcing Nick and his daughter to become fugitives for three weeks in order to shake that looming price on his head. It’s all very ridiculous and over-the-top, »

Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld Go on the Run in 'Term Life' Trailer

20 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If there's anything worse than being chased by a drug lord, it might be going on the lam with your petulant teenage daughter.

In this trailer for "Term Life," that's what Vince Vaughn has to do when a heist goes terribly wrong. He plays Nick, a thief who's framed for murdering the son of a cartel boss. Nick wants to take financial care of his estranged daughter (Hailee Steinfeld), so he takes out a life insurance policy. All he has to do is survive for 21 days, so father and unwilling daughter go on the run.

It's a bit of a convoluted premise, and the trailer is a bit scattered, veering from a heist movie to an action thriller to a buddy road flick. Still, Vaughn delivers his lines with a snap, and the cast also boasts Jonathan Banks, Bill Paxton, and Jon Favreau.

"Term Life" will be available on demand »

Last summer, Vince Vaughn showed off his "serious" acting chops, brooding through the second season of "True Detective." While the show didn't live up to expectations, Vaughn was quite good, and now he's got another project in which he will decline to yuk it up —though it must be said that this film doesn't look so promising as well.

Vince Vaughn's Term Life Dropped Its First Image And There's Something We Really Need to Discuss

15 January 2016 12:52 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Although primarily known for his comedic roles over the last two decades, Vince Vaughn has experienced a long career that has spanned numerous genres. He has done comedy, action, and even horror . but the less we say about Gus Van Sant.s Psycho the better. Despite having such a diverse resume, he has never really been known to change his appearance too much for a movie . until now. The first images from his new film, Term Life, have just been made available to us, and there.s something we really need to sit down and discuss. Check out the poster below.   As you can see, the poster features Vaughn, accompanied by co-star Hailee Steinfeld, brandishing a gun against a dreary, neo-noir urban landscape. It.s a fairly standard movie poster in general, but we all need to pay special attention to Vince Vaughn.s friggin hairdo. Unlike his usual short, »

Brit Marling Raises Hell in Bold New Mondo Poster for 'The Keeping Room'

12 January 2016 1:10 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 13 Most Criminally Overlooked Indies and Foreign Films of 2015 Daniel Barber's feminist Western "The Keeping Room" was a critically acclaimed drama that just couldn't find its legs at the box office when it was released in select theaters last September. And yet, thanks to some appearances on end-of-the-year compilation lists and this excellent new Mondo poster, it seems like "The Keeping Room" might just get a second chance at discovery for audiences looking for a worthy surprise. Set in the rural South of 1865, the drama takes place at the end of Civil War on a remote farm run by three women: Augusta (Brit Marling), her teenage sister Louise (Hailee Steinfeld) and their slave Mad (Muna Otaru). As all the men in their lives vanished long ago on the battlefield, the women exist in a static world, but their lives soon change when two soldiers discover their home »
