M. Night Shyamalan Movie The Visit Gets a Release Date

15 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yep, even after M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth disaster of a film bombed at the box office, the filmmaker went on to develop another movie called The Visit. He was originally developing it under the title Sundowning, but that has obviously changed.

The story focuses on "a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a week long trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day." 

The original title of the film was apparently connected something called Sundowners Syndrome that is described as "a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings."

It definitely sounds like it could be interesting, but I’m not going to hold my breath for anymore good films from Shyamalan. »

Universal Pictures has acquired the distribution rights for M. Night Shyamalan's new thriller The Visit. The studio has set a September 11, 2015 release date, where it will open against Open Road Films' Triple Nine. M. Night Shyamalan himself confirmed the news on his Twitter page earlier today.

We first reported on this project back in March, when it was known as Sundowning. That report revealed that Kathryn Hahn is starring as a single mother whose young children visit their grandparents, and things go terribly awry. Ed Oxenbould playing one of her children. Deadline reports that the story centers on a brother and sister who discover their grandparents are up to something sinister during a week-long trip, as they see their chances of returning home getting smaller every day.

M. Night Shyamalan is directing from his own screenplay and producing alongside Blumhouse's Jason Blum and Marc Bienstock, with Steven Schneider and Ashwin Rajan executive producing. »

M. Night Shyamalan's Secretive 'The Visit' Sets 2015 Date & Jessica Chastain's 'Miss Julie' Coming In December

12 November 2014 11:48 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember when M. Night Shyamalan movies used to be an event? Well, after a long period of diminishing returns, it has been quite some time since the filmmaker stirred up that kind of fervor. But, Universal is hoping that by keeping his next movie sorta secret, it can build up some anticipation, and today they set a September 11, 2015 release date for—wait for it—"The Visit" (oooooooh). So what's it about? Well, it tells the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home grow smaller every day.  We're pretty sure this is the same movie that was previously announced as "Sundowning" earlier this year, with Kathryn Hahn and child actor Ed Oxenbould in the lead roles. »

New arrival shakes up talent management business

29 October 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Former Rgm agents Tracey Silvester and Theresa Huska have launched Independent Management Company with the backing of music and theatre impresario Paul Dainty.

The move marks the biggest shake-up in the talent agency business since Natasha Harrison and Lee-Anne Higgins departed Shanahan Management three years ago and formed United Management with Trish McAskill and Catherine Handley.

More than a dozen Rgm clients have crossed to Independent Management. They include Olivia DeJonge, Sigrid Thornton, Dustin Clare, Rick Donald, Sharni Vinson and Chai Romruen.

Us-born, Perth-raised Devon Terrell, who left Rgm earlier this year, has landed the lead in Codes of Conduct, HBO.s drama pilot from Steve McQueen (12 Years a Slave). Terrell, who graduated from Nida last year, is playing a young black man who enters New York high society.

Huska, who had been with Rgm for 10 years, departed in June. She had known Dainty, whom she met via an Rgm client, »

A Kid Film Critic Reviews Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

11 October 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I thought Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was okay. There were some good parts and some bad parts. The movie starts off with Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould) having a very bad day. Then he makes a birthday wish that puts a curse on his family’s day (typical Disney movie). So the next day they are running late and nothing is going right. His family’s bad day goes on for over half the movie.

I thought sometimes the movie went too far. Like when Emily Cooper (Kerris Dorsey) throws up three times in the movie. How much throw up do we really need to see? I certainly don’t want to see any throw up. I think sometimes the movie wasn’t funny – it was outright stupid. Like when Anthony Cooper (Dylan Minnette) is taking his driver’s test and the test person tells »

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Is Funny, Fast, Charming

10 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Judith Viorst’s beloved children’s story Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, written in 1972, is a one-act wonder — an irreverent cavalcade of horrors, misunderstandings, and missteps that befall one particularly unlucky and pessimistic child. There’s probably no way to adapt it for the screen without undoing its wonderfully one-note premise. The new film, directed by Miguel Arteta and written by Rob Lieber, pays heed to the broad strokes of the original work while updating and expanding it for big-studio entertainment. Such attempts usually collapse in a smarm-cloud of competing demographic interests, cheap gags, and bloat; see pretty much every feature-length Dr. Seuss adaptation for examples. This minor miracle, amazingly, doesn’t. It’s funny, fast, and charming.“My parents say there’s no such thing as a bad day, that it’s all just how you look at it,” young Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) tells »

Film Review: Bigger Not Better ‘Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day’

10 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – This is what happens when a beloved book gets sucked into the big Hollywood studio machine and gets all the endearing qualities – plus its heart and soul – sucked right out of it. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad movie.

It goes from Alexander getting gum stuck in his hair and his mom buying him the wrong kind of sneakers to Steve Carell doing sake bombs in a Japanese steak house on a job interview and catching a pirate shirt he’s wearing on fire.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

How did we get here?  Screenwriter Rob Lieber seems to think bigger is automatically better. And this produces a movie that’s so broad it misses the specificity of the original and also seems stretched to its breaking point even at a relatively brief 81 minutes.

The original children’s book may not »

'Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad, No Good Day' Review Roundup: Disney Live-Action Flick Gets Mostly Positive Notices

9 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible Very Bad, No Good Day follows a rough 24 hours in the life of 11-year-old Alexander Cooper.

Adapted for the big screen from Judith Viorst's 1972 children's picture book, Alexander begins with the titular character waking up with gum in his hair – which ends up being the least of his troubles as the day unfolds. What’s worse, Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) feels like his family is failing to show him due empathy, making him conclude that he’s the only one with bad luck in the bunch.

In Miguel Arteta’s movie, the following day explores a bad day for Alexander’s mom and dad (Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell) and his siblings Anthony (Dylan Minnette), Emily (Kerris Dorsey) and Trevor. Throughout his family’s “terrible, horrible, very bad, no good day,” Alexander tries to help everyone deal with the steady stream of misfortune.

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – The Review

9 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I love family films. I love movies that are directed towards children. Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day made me want to leave the theater within the first twenty minutes.

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day follows the journey of Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) and his day, which hasn’t gone according to plan. Feeling like his family doesn’t understand his daily struggles, Alexander makes a birthday wish for his family to go through their own terrible, horrible bad day… which happens to be on his birthday. Now, his family struggles to make it through their series of bad luck as Alexander looks on in worry and self blame. Will today ever go right?

Like I said previously… I love family movies. I support the idea of a movie that is built with almost every audience in mind so that both children »

‘Gone Girl’ Could Face Another Box Office Barn Burner With ‘Dracula’, ‘Alexander’, ‘Judge’ – B.O. Preview

9 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After holding off Annabelle’s possessed doll in a photo finish at the box office last week, Gone Girl faces a new round of challengers in what could be another tight race, this time pitting the David Fincher-Ben Affleck thriller against Robert Downey Jr., Dracula and one peeved kid. And while the field is becoming overcrowded with fall entries, the race should help continue the box office’s rebound from a dismal September.

Although it’s taken some hits from critics as a typical courtroom drama, The Judge has wattage in the form of Downey and Robert Duvall. The $50 million pic from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, though, could be the season’s first victim of the overcrowded field. Like Gone Girl, it’s an R-rated drama starring a comic-book movie superhero. But it lacks the public chatter of Gone Girl, and could be cannibalized by adult competition. »
