Watch the trailer for Lone Scherfig’s ‘The Riot Club’

27 February 2015 3:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oscar-nominated Danish filmmaker Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club, has a new trailer for its anticipated March 27 Us release. Scherfig is a Dogme 95-er and Oscar-nominated for her film An Education (2009). Although most of Scherfig’s eight films are romantic comedies, The Riot Club is darker material. In the film, young Oxford University students join a “Riot Club” and exercise their darkest thoughts about “poor people”; probably murder ensues. The cast is a chorus of rising Britons led by Game of ThronesNatalie DormerDownton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, as well as Sam Claflin, Max Irons, and Douglas Booth. The film is an adaptation by Laura Wade of her own West End play, Posh.   

Behind the camera Scherfig has been a creative and detailed director since her breakthrough film Italian for Beginners (2000), which won the Silver Berlin Bear in 2001. Watch the new trailer for The Riot Club below:

Rich Kids Do Bad Things

yt id="Es-jm4iDRRQ" width="500" I could have seen The Riot Club at the Toronto Film Festival last year, but I feel like it's a film I've seen too many times before. Am I wrong or are you seeing something different herec Filthy. Rich. Spoiled. Rotten. A band of overprivileged rich boys run wild in this savagely funny satire of money, sex and power. In the elite realm of Oxford University, no society is more exclusive than The Riot Club, the ultra-selective fraternity for Britain's most privileged sons. When he's recruited to join, down-to-earth first-year student Miles (Max Irons) is at first amused--but he's about to get a taste of upper-crust entitlement at its ugliest when a hedonistic night of drinking and drugs spins out of control. Based on the play "Posh" by Laura Wade. Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) Starring: Holliday Grainger, Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, »

Watch: IFC's Full Trailer for 'The Riot Club' Set at Oxford University

25 February 2015 2:02 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Filthy. Rich. Spoilt. Rotten. IFC Films has recently unveiled the official Us trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, which will be getting released in March after initially premiering at Tiff 2014 last year. This debaucherous drama delves into the lives of the elite members of Oxford University's "Riot Club", based on the real-life Bullingdon Club, though I'm sure they want nothing to do with this. The young and beautiful cast of Riot Club includes Max Irons, Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Jessica Brown Findlay, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, Olly Alexander, Tom Hollander and Sam Reid. As much as I am fond of director Lone Scherfig, I'm not any more interested in this than I was after the first trailer. Give it a shot. Here's the full trailer for Lone Scherfig's The Riot Club, officially from IFC Films (via The Film Stage): Set amongst the privileged elite of Oxford University, »

New Trailer For The Riot Club Tackles The Elitist Fraternity Set

24 February 2015 2:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

IFC Films has dropped a new trailer today for Lone Scherfig’s latest, The Riot Club. Based on Laura Wade’s West End play, Posh, the film follows the story of a young man at Oxford University as he attempts to gain acceptance into an exclusive, elitist fraternity. Think Neighbors through a stereotypical English lens.

The movie stars Max Irons as Miles Richards, whose every desire hinges upon joining the privileged group. The main bulk of the trailer serves to build up the prestige of the club, so as to possibly provide reason for why anyone would wish to be a member. Around the midway point it seems to veer into spoiler territory, but nevertheless, that first minute ought to entice potential viewers. While it’s yet to open in the U.S., the film did make its North American debut at last year’s Tiff, where it landed a crop of encouraging reviews. »

Jupiter Ascending Review

10 February 2015 7:24 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Wachowski’s are pushing the limits on their own M. Night career path (which conveniently runs the same timeline), and Jupiter Ascending will hopefully mark the end of the tailspin, and we can finally say that 11 years is long enough to throw good money after bad.

The trailer for the film about a “regular Joe” girl from Earth, Jupiter (Mila Kunis), who gets wrapped up in the machinations of aliens who apparently control much of the universe, seemed to have hints at a return to what made The Matrix the kind of effort that would get people to throw hundreds of millions of dollars at you, but it has far more in common with the two sequels (and everything else they’ve done).

Worse, it has quite a lot in common with so many other films that you’d be hard-pressed to mention them all, and is moreover laughably littered with tired genre staples. »

Movie Review – Jupiter Ascending (2015)

9 February 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jupiter Ascending, 2015.

Written and Directed by The Wachowskis.

Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie RedmayneDouglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton.

Synopsis:

In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign.

If I subscribed to the adage of ‘so bad it’s good’ then Jupiter Ascending might have been one heck of a fun time at the cinema; however, I do not and will never succumb to that way of thinking; so this latest film from the Wachowskis was an unmitigated disaster of galactic proportions. A film so bad and in which every aspect is so poorly handled, no one walks away unscathed – the most afflicted being the paying audience. »

We've provided blurbs from a few of the critics,below. Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a very nice 85 score, saying: "Who cares if the story is occasionally impenetrable or if some gags land with a thud when the thrills and the eye candy keep coming at such a breathless pace? Jupiter Ascending doesn’t break the new ground that the Wachowskis have managed in the past...but the film never slacks in its efforts to wow us. »

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Review

7 February 2015 8:18 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Douglas Booth | Written and Directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski

A rich science-fiction world, full of weird and colourful characters who still ring true despite having massive animal ears or wings, with well-defined politics, an ancient conflict and a lead couple who you can’t help but root for with all your heart.

Unfortunately I’m not talking about Jupiter Ascending but the comic Saga, the latest issue of which I was reading on the bus home from the 3D IMAX screening I attended last night. Sadly for the Wachowskis, who clearly put a lot of care and affection into their latest ambitious failure, Jupiter Ascending fails miserably in all the ways Saga succeeds.

But perhaps that’s an unfair comparison; I should judge Jupiter Ascending on its own terms. Inferior similarities to the beloved (and, to be fair, »

Second Opinion – Jupiter Ascending (2015)

6 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jupiter Ascending, 2015

Written and directed by The Wachowskis

Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie RedmayneDouglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton

Synopsis:

In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign.

Channing Tatum recently just starred in Foxcatcher, delivering the best acting performance of his career, one where he was just edged out for a Best Supporting Actor nomination. Current front-runner to win the Best Actor Oscar, Eddie Redmayne is here doling out one of the most ham-fisted and hilariously bad villainous performances of all time. Mila Kunis is here as the heir to Earth, but all we hear is Meg Griffin wanting to f*** Channing Tatum because uhh… he »

Jupiter Ascending – The Review

5 February 2015 8:56 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a movie oddity for this time of year. While we’re shoveling and shivering, a big-time space epic blasts into theatres. But, to borrow a phrase from the airlines, its arrival was delayed just over six months. Hmm, odd indeed. Oh, and this one isn’t completely set in one of those galaxies far, far away. A good chunk of this tale rests on that city of big shoulders. It purports that alien races are battling away, hidden from view, right under our noses. I flashed right back to one of those classic made-for-tv flicks from 1970, “The Love War” about aliens in human form fighting on Earth (Lloyd Bridges and Angie Dickinson are from opposing forces who, of course, fall hard for each other). And with this story we’ve got a downtrodden human unaware that they have special gifts that can save the planet. That theme goes »

‘Jupiter Ascending’ rises to absurd and hilarious heights

5 February 2015 8:07 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jupiter Ascending

Written & Directed by The Wachowskis

USA, 2015

That sound you’re hearing is a massive sigh of relief from David Lynch.  He no longer holds the dubious distinction of producing the most expensive B-movie in the history of Hollywood.  That honor now belongs to The Wachowskis, whose Jupiter Ascending has officially displaced Dune at the top (or bottom) of the heap.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however.  Jupiter Ascending not only looks spectacular, it’s a laugh riot.  Ridiculous dialogue, hammy performances, and enough mythology to baffle Zeus make this disaster a must-see for all lovers of cheese.

In the pantheon of helpless heroines, Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) is arguably the most helpless of them all.  She literally spends two hours being rescued by Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), a mutant ‘splice’ who is part human, part wolf, and all stud.  He’s also got a gnarly pair »

Film Review: ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Might Cause Attention Descending

5 February 2015 2:11 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Jupiter Ascending” is certainly one of the oddest and densest of sci-fi movies, this side of “Dune,” and has some of the most laughable acting and dialogue seen in a major film in awhile. But the worst offense is that the film is dull, and practically without emotion or human empathy.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

There is one major current Oscar nominee is in the film – Eddie Redmayne – and fellow cast member Channing Tatum is also in the Best Picture nominated “Foxcatcher.” There might be a “Norbit Effect” (the horrible film starring Eddie Murphy, that was released the month he was favored to win Best Supporting Actor for “Dreamgirls,” which has been attributed to his loss of the trophy) for Redmayne, as the character “Balem Abrasax,” which nicely can be described as an “eccentric performance.” Not that anybody else survives the wooden script by Andy and Lana Wachowski (the “Matrix” series), and »
