Mark Duplass Talks The One I Love, Marketing the Movie While Keeping Its Twist Secret, How He Gets His Movies Off the Ground and More

5 hours ago

Think you need connections to make it in the film industry?  Not so says Mark Duplass, and he’s got the resume to prove it.  He made a short film for next to nothing and it got into Sundance, he followed that up with a $15,000 first feature, then he hit a point where he could get money to make his movies and now he’s able to finance them himself.  He’s a guy who started with nothing, worked his way up and truly earned the privilege to do whatever he wants.  And, best of all, even with that added freedom, he’s still churning out low budget, high quality productions that don’t lean on funds, but rather excel via clever concepts, strong storytelling and powerful performances, just like his latest, The One I Love. Duplass executive produced and also stars in the film as Ethan, a guy who »

Nightcrawler, Krampus, and Spectral Get New Release Dates

8 hours ago

Universal pictures has found release dates for two films from their Legendary slate while Open Road has moved one of their more intriguing films to Halloween. Writer/director Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler moves from October 17th to October 31st. Director Michael Dougherty's Krampus will open on November 25, 2015. The Nic Mathieu-helmed Spectral will appear on screens on August 12th, 2016. Hit the jump for more on these release date changes. First up is Nightcrawler, which became one of my most anticipated movies of the year the instant I saw the trailer a month or two back.  Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the film along with Rene Russo and Bill Paxton and, although it's not a horror movie, it certainly seems creepy enough to open on Halloween.  Here's the official synopsis: Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles.  Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a »

Director Rj Cutler and Author Gayle Forman Talk If I Stay, the Emotional Response, and the Potential Sequel Where She Went

9 hours ago

Based on the best-selling novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay tells the story of Mia Hall (Chloe Grace Moretz), a young girl who is deciding whether to pursue her musical dreams as a cellist at Juilliard or follow a different path with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley), who’s on the verge of becoming a rock star.  When a tragic accident changes everything in an instant, Mia is caught between life and death with only one decision left to make. At the conference at the film’s press day, director Rj Cutler and author Gayle Forman talked about what Chloe Grace Moretz brought to the role of Mia, what it took for her to pull off playing the cello, why audiences like emotionally moving experiences with books and movies, why this is more than just a young adult story, what it’s been like to see this novel brought to life, »

Chinese Movie Theaters Apparently Hellbent on Making the Experience Even More Miserable

12 hours ago

As someone who has gotten into at least two dozen verbal altercations with members of the texting community over the past five or six years, I pray for China.  And I hope that whatever China is up to these days doesn’t spread much further.  Because Chinese movie theaters are testing and refining systems that allow theatergoers to text during films and then see those texts on the actual screen the film is playing on.  "Bullet screens" will pop up over the movie you're watching.  It’s bad enough that you have to see the light from someone’s phone, but now you have to see their stupid thoughts onscreen? Don’t even try to justify this one to me as some kind of “eventuality.”  It’s not.  It doesn’t have to be.  One of the best parts of going to the movies is being able to out away your phone. »

Emmanuelle Chriqui Talks Cleaners Season 2, Online TV Programming, and Collaborating On Her Character

13 hours ago

Season 2 of the high-stakes, action-packed Crackle series Cleaners follows the equally gorgeous and lethal contract killers Veronica (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Roxie (Emily Osment) to a small island in the Caribbean where they think they are about to cash in, only to realize they have not yet escaped their past or Mother (Gina Gershon).  The show also stars David Arquette, Missi Pyle, Esai Morales, Omar Avila, David Rees Snell and John Savage. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actress Emmanuelle Chriqui (who is also an executive producer on the series) talked about how she came to be a part of Cleaners, how exciting it is to be a part of the new frontier of original programming, how daunting the stunt work is in such a limited amount of time, collaborating on the development of the story and characters, what made Emily Osment the perfect Roxie, and why they decided to change »

Mark Wahlberg in Talks for Deepwater Horizon; Sigourney Weaver Joins A Monster Calls, Passes on Expendabelles

14 hours ago

The oil rig disaster film Deepwater Horizon has found its leading man.  All Is Lost helmer J.C. Chandor signed on to direct the pic last month, and now Deadline reports that Mark Wahlberg is in talks to take on the lead role.  The film is based on the Gulf of Mexico oil rig disaster of April 2010 and focuses on the rig workers that were on site during the explosion that killed 11 people and injured 16 others.  Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura previously likened the the pic to A Perfect Storm, so nabbing Wahlberg for the lead role feels like a swell fit.  The actor will play the Number 2 manager onboard, with Chandor eyeing a spring or early summer 2015 production start date. Hit the jump for casting news concerning Sigourney Weaver, including the status of her involvement with the female Expendables movie. Additionally, Heat Vision reports that Sigourney Weaver has joined the cast »

Watch: Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul Reunite as Pawn Shop Owners with Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Emmy Promo

15 hours ago

The 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards are now less than a week away, and after last year’s somewhat confounding series of winners, anticipation is high to see how the final season of Breaking Bad stacks up against True Detective and if Veep can continue taking away heat from Modern Family.  In anticipation of the broadcast, the Television Academy has put together a fun 6-minute promo with three of the best in the business: Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  Cranston and Paul play a pair of sleazy pawn shop owners in the reality show parody, while Louis-Dreyfus attempts to sell off one of her Emmys.  Unsurprisingly, the video is really funny and is a nice showcase of Cranston and Paul's comedic chemistry, and it takes a rather unexpected turn towards the end. Hit the jump to watch the “Barely Legal Pawn” video, and check back this weekend when Allison and »

A Good Marriage Trailer and Poster: Joan Allen and Anthony Lapaglia Have Secrets in New Stephen King Thriller

15 hours ago

Screen Media Films has released the first A Good Marriage trailer and poster for the upcoming thriller, written by Stephen King.  Based on King’s short story of the same name, the film stars Joan Allen and Anthony Lapaglia as a seemingly happily married couple whose relationship is tested when Allen discovers that her husband may in fact be a notorious serial killer.  It looks like a decidedly Stephen King-esque story, which is fitting since he also wrote the screenplay.  I was recently reminded of Joan Allen’s brilliance while finishing up the final season of The Killing on Netflix, and combined with the film’s pulpy premise, she provides a nice point of attraction for A Good Marriage. Hit the jump to check out the Good Marriage trailer and poster.  Directed by Peter Askin, the film also stars Kristen Connolly and Stephen LangA Good Marriage will be »

New Rosewater Images: Gael Garcia Bernal Is Blindfolded in Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut

16 hours ago

A couple of new Rosewater images have been released for comedian and The Daily Show host Jon Stewart’s directorial debut as the film’s World Premiere looms closer.  Written and directed by Stewart, the pic stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Kim Bodnia and is an adaptation of BBC journalist Maziar Bahari’s memoir Then They Came for Me.  Bahari, who was born in Tehran, went to Iran in 2009 to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, but was arrested by the Revolutionary Guard and then interrogated and beaten for 118 days by a man known only as “Rosewater.”  Stewart had a personal connection to the story, as Bahari’s previous Daily Show appearance was used as “evidence” that he was a spy.  This has been high on my most anticipated list for some time, and I’m extremely eager to see what Stewart has put together when the film screens at the Toronto International Film Festival. »

Could Scoot McNairy Be Playing The Flash in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice?

16 hours ago

Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have been doing a wonderful job of keeping the specifics of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice under wraps while also providing fans with enough information/teases to keep them happy.  The film doesn’t open until March 2016, but we’ve had regular doses of minor reveals for the past few months, and we’ve already seen official looks at Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman.  By and large, Snyder and WB have kept people pretty satisfied.  That being said, there’s always room for speculation, which brings us to today’s curious matter.  A new Batman v Superman set photo has surfaced that has people wondering about the nature of actor Scoot McNairy’s role in the film, as it looks possible that he could be playing none other than Barry Allen aka »

Exclusive Character Posters For The Zero Theorem Introduce the Film’s Characters and their Philosophies

17 hours ago

I finally got a chance to see Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem and was mightily impressed by its ability to conjure some of the magic of Gilliam classics like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys (albeit in a far warmer, less brutal manner than the latter film).  So I'm really glad we're debuting these character posters that don't just showcase the performers in the film, but the philosophies of the people they are playing.  The movie is all about ideas, a philosophical dialogue.  And these get at that. The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  The film hits iTunes today, August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th.  Be sure to check out the trailer and »

Sigourney Weaver Brings “Va-Va-Voom” to Ancient Egypt in New Exodus: Gods And Kings Images

17 hours ago

20th Century Fox has released a couple of new Exodus: Gods and Kings images from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic.  One of these new images gives us a closer look at Sigourney Weaver, who plays Tuya, the mother of Joel Edgerton’s Ramses.  Costume designer Janty Yates tells EW that Scott wanted the character to be “va-va-voom,” likening her to Jessica Rabbit—a woman on the prowl.  It’s a curious choice for the Biblical epic, though the rest of the cast is a bit stylized as well, with Edgerton and Christian Bale’s Moses both wearing their fair share of eyeliner. Hit the jump to check out the Exodus: Gods and Kings images and to see what Bale had to say about taking on what he describes as one of the most fascinating characters he’s ever studied.  Exodus: Gods and Kings opens in theaters on December 5th. »

Harry Lloyd and Katja Herbers Talk Manhattan, Learning about The Manhattan Project, What They’re Most Excited for Audiences to See, and More

17 hours ago

What happens if you round up the nation's most brilliant scientific minds, seclude them in a makeshift city in the middle of the desert, and drown their lives in secrecy?  These are the questions addressed in Manhattan, the new historical drama from creator Sam Shaw (Masters of Sex) and director Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing).  Manhattan offers a semi-fictionalized version of the infamous Manhattan Project - the clandestine research and development project that resulted in the creation of the atomic bomb.  While the events of the show are based on history, Manhattan largely steers clear of iconic figures like J.  Robert Oppenheimer and Leslie Groves, and focuses instead on the interpersonal drama between fictitious characters as they contend with the costs of secrecy and isolation. I recently visited the set in Santa Fe, New Mexico where the labs, homes, and barracks of Los Alamos have been recreated from the ground up. »

FX Renews The Strain for Season 2; The Virus Will Spread in Summer 2015

17 hours ago

There were rumors that The Strain got the go-ahead for a second season, but now FX has made it official, running with the appropriate press release title, “The Strain to Spread Though the Summer Of 2015.”  For anyone who hasn’t given the show a shot just yet, I highly recommend it.  We’ve seen six episodes of season 1 thus far and while I can’t say every moment rocks high quality writing, performances and believable behavior, there’s no denying that it’s still a blast to watch. No spoilers here, but the show kicks off with a plane landing at JFK.  It touches down safe and sound, but when there isn’t a single peep from the pilot, crew or any of the passengers after, the Cdc is called in to investigate what is dubbed a “dead airplane.”  But the thing is, the passengers aren’t dead.  They start »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Hires Adrianne Palicki to Guest Star as Bobbi Morse a.k.a Mockingbird

18 hours ago

After the incredibly disappointing first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the series is returning with a new gameplan: guest stars, guest stars, and guest stars.  Kyle MacLachlan is playing Skye's father; Lucy Lawless is playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley; and Reed Diamond is playing Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall (a.k.a Kraken).  THR is now reporting that Adrianne Palicki will be making an appearance this season as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird.  According to THR, Morse "will appear in the fifth episode of the Marvel procedural with the potential to return; the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team."  While Palicki is a likable presence, her casting and the casting of other guest stars doesn't address the show's larger problem like the bad writing, dull main characters, and crummy special effects. »

Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller Talk Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

18 hours ago

Nearly a decade after the first film, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have reunited to bring the visually stunning Sin City graphic novels back to the screen for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.  In a town where murderers reign and the desperate want vengeance, their paths cross at the famous Kadie’s Club Pecos, where Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) still dances while mourning the loss of her love, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis).  With Marv (Mickey Rourke) in the center of the carnage, a cocky young gambler named Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) takes on the villainous Senator Roark (Powers Boothe), and Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) is battles with the woman of his dreams and nightmares, Ava Lord (Eva Green). During a conference at the film’s press day, actors Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Eva Green talked about living in Sin City, with this dialogue and these extremes, »

Benedict Cumberbatch to Voice Shere Khan in Andy Serkis’ Jungle Book: Origins

18 hours ago

Jon Favreau’s version of The Jungle Book for Disney already has Neel Sethi, Lupita Nyong’o, Idris ElbaScarlett Johansson, Sir Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito on board and is barreling towards an October 9, 2015 debut, but now Andy Serkis’ rendition for Warner Bros., which is now titled Jungle Book: Origins, is making some moves, too. Serkis’ Jungle Book just locked its very first star, Benedict Cumberbatch.  He’ll voice the film’s villain, Shere Khan, a tiger who’d rather not have any humans in his territory at all.  Hit the jump for more on Cumberbatch’s casting.  Jungle Book: Origins is set for an October 21, 2016 debut. The news comes from THR with the outlet pointing out that Cumberbatch will be up against Elba who’s voicing the character for Favreau’s film.  However, it does seem as though one film might end up being a bit darker than the other. »

Adam Driver Highlights the Importance of Keeping Star Wars: Episode VII Grounded

19 hours ago

When you’ve got a story that takes place in space and involves distant planets, lightsabers, epic battles and an abundance of alien creatures, “grounded” is probably not the first word you’d think to use to describe it, but for Star Wars: Episode VII star, Adam Driver, it’s those relatable, universal themes that make the Star Wars franchise a standout. Even though the web’s been flooded with Star Wars: Episode VII talk lately, there’s been little to nothing from the stars of the upcoming installment - until now.  Hit the jump to read what Driver had to say about what makes the Star Wars films so special. While talking to EW (via HitFix), Driver led off by explaining: “Doing Star Wars now - that’s surreal … I feel like that even with this cast.  You start by try to stamp [that feeling] down as much as possible, just »
