Meet Rising Star Alex Russell, the Aussie Actor Making a Mark in Hollywood (Exclusive)

19 October 2017 3:50 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Meet Alex Russell, the 29-year-old Australian actor whose breakthrough role in 2012’s inventive found-footage sci-fi superhero thriller, Chronicle, has paid off in spades. Five years after the release of the film, the not-so newcomer is preparing for the simultaneous release of three projects: real-life, big-screen adaptations Jungle, opposite Daniel Radcliffe, and Only the Brave, with Miles Teller and Josh Brolin, along with the upcoming premiere of the CBS drama, S.W.A.T., starring Shemar Moore

It’s been a nonstop ride for the actor ever since. Before 2017 rolled around, Russell -- whose first credited role came just seven years ago -- had a whirlwind year filming four movies back-to-back, taking him from Los Angeles to Colombia to Mexico to the Gold Coast with a quick 24-hour respite in between in Nashville to reunite with his love, Goliath star Diana Hopper, for a wedding.

The past several months, though, Russell has called Southern California home while he’s been in production »

Second Opinion – Jungle (2017)

19 October 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jungle, 2017.

Directed by Greg McLean.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russell, Joel Jackson, Lily Sullivan, and Yasmin Kassim.

Synopsis:

Three travellers meet up in Bolivia and can’t resist the temptation of a trip into the rainforest to find a lost tribe.  When things don’t go according to plan, two of them give up and the others carry on, but are soon separated.  The local villagers find one of them, but the other is stranded in the jungle.

Remember that TV show, Walk on the Wild Side, the one where the animals had human voiceovers?  There was a marmot which seemed to be yelling “Alan! Alan! Alan!”  Given the way that a lost Daniel Radcliffe wanders around the Bolivian rainforest in Jungle yelling “Kevin! Kevin! Kevin!” at the top of his voice, I can only assume he saw it as well.

‘Jungle’ Review: Harry Potter Meets Werner Herzog in a Feverish Survival Story

19 October 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the years since hanging up his quidditch broom, Daniel Radcliffe has blazed a surprisingly adventurous trail, devoting himself to risky projects that stray far from the beaten path, some of them quite literally. For the second time in the last 18 months, the former “Harry Potter” star has wandered off into the wilderness, following the miraculously inventive “Swiss Army Man” with a true-life survival story about a restless Israeli kid who wound up stranded by himself in an uncharted stretch of the Amazon. And while “Jungle” glaringly lacks the flair and depth of feeling that defined Radcliffe’s previous stroll through the great outdoors, it’s somehow even more disgusting than “Swiss Army Man,” a movie in which the actor plays a corpse whose farts are so explosive that they propel his body across the surface of the ocean like a jet ski.

Jungle review

17 October 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daniel Radcliffe stars in Jungle, a true story of survival. But is it any good?

Daniel Radcliffe is doing an accent. That’s the first thing that grabs your attention in Jungle, which opens with the brave British actor intoning an opening narration over a blank screen. He introduces the themes of adventure and exploration, explaining why his character will venture into the Amazon rainforest a bit later on.

It’s not the most remarkable opening, but it’ll do. And that same sentiment could sum up the film that follows. Jungle is another survival film about a young man who’s way out of his depth. Straight of the gate, it’s got a fair bit to prove if it wants to stand out from the pack.

The film’s ‘based on a true story’ tag is its Usp. Radcliffe plays the real-life Israeli explorer Yossi Ghinsberg, who, at »

Toronto After Dark Film Festival Review – Rabbit (2017)

17 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rabbit, 2017.

Written and Directed by Luke Shanahan.

Starring Adelaide Clemens, Alex Russell, Jonny Pasvolsky, and Veerle Baetens.

Synopsis:

A year after Maude’s twin sister goes missing, Maude goes looking for Cleo, believing her dreams are the key to bringing her sister back home.

This month special screenings of Psycho will run in theaters for Halloween. Where trailers have made people less concerned about getting to movies on time, this wouldn’t have been the case when the film originally came out. Alfred Hitchcock’s no late admission policy ensured no one would wander in after Psycho’s start time and wonder why Janet Leigh was nowhere to be found.

My reason for bringing this up now is because Rabbit would do well to instate a similar policy. Where many films give you time to warm-up and turn your focus to what’s happening on-screen, Rabbit doesn’t waste a »

Grimmfest 2017: Rabbit Review: Dir. Luke Shanahan (2017)

Rabbit Review: A women searches for her missing twin in this Kubrick-esque Australian horror.

Rabbit review by Steve Palace, October 2017.

Rabbit Review

While you feel you may have seen your share of horror movies influenced by Davids Lynch and Cronenberg, the films of Tobe Hooper and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man, it will reassure you to know that eye-opening results can still be obtained if you find a way to handle those influences in an original fashion. That’s what writer/director Luke Shanahan has done with Rabbit, a bold and well-sustained tale that promises much for the debut helmer down the line.

Maude (Adelaide Clemens) is an Australian living in Germany, who is hoping to escape the tragedy of missing twin sister Cleo. However when her dreams seem to show Cleo’s bizarre and brutal fate, she feels compelled to return to Oz, where friend Ralph (Alex Russell »

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Through Hell And High Water In First Jungle Clip

14 September 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Post-Potter life has been fairly kind to Daniel Radcliffe.

From battling The Woman in Black to infiltrating a neo-Nazi sect in Imperium, not to mention the wholly irreverent Swiss Army Man, the former Boy Who Lived has consistently strayed outside his comfort zone in order to approach weird, wonderful, and often compelling roles. And Jungle is yet another quirky feather in Radcliffe’s hat.

Coming by way of horror veteran Greg McLean, who is perhaps best known for directing Wolf Creek, Rogue, and this year’s Battle Royale clone, The Belko Experiment, Jungle is the story of 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg. Flanked by his two best friends, Yossi embarks on what he believes will be the adventure of a lifetime, but the truth is much, much more. What follows is an intense fight for survival, and today’s newly-released clip documents a scene on the Jungle rapids.

Josh Brolin Fights Fires In New Trailer For ‘Only The Brave’ [Watch]

13 September 2017 9:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the movies hitting the fall, the one that makes us feel the most ‘oh yeah, that’s apparently a movie that exists’ is “Only The Brave.” Telling the true (and suddenly and grimly topical after the devastating wildfires on the West Coast)story of the Yamell Hill Fire in June 2013, we can only imagine that one of the reasons it doesn’t stick in our heads is because it’s gone through about five title changes, it was originally called “No Exit,” then “Granite Mountain,” then “Granite Mountain Hotshots,” before circling all the way back round to something generic like “Only The Brave.”

Nevertheless, the film, about the Arizona fire that claimed the life of 19 firefighters four years back, has the kind of cast that you’d think we might recall — Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Taylor Kitsch, Jennifer Connelly, Geoff Stults, Ben Hardy, »

Daniel Radcliffe in New Us Trailer for Amazon Survival Thriller 'Jungle'

6 September 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The only guy who knows where we are, what we're going to do, and he just walked away!" Momentum Pictures has debuted a new official trailer for the survival thriller titled Jungle, starring Daniel Radcliffe as an adventurous Israeli backpacker who gets lots for three weeks in the Amazon jungle. This is based on the true story of Yossi Ghinsberg (and his book) about an incredible endurance test he had to go through to survive. This starts out similar to the first trailer, but the second half is pretty dizzying, and a tiny reference for how brutal it is to survive in these conditions. In addition to Radcliffe the cast includes Alex Russell, Joel Jackson and Thomas Kretschmann. I'm curious to check this out, it seems intense. Plus it might be an oddly perfect double feature with Radcliffe's wacky forest survival comedy Swiss Army Man. Dive in. Here's the new »
