New Extended Terminator: Genisys TV Spot Reveals J.K. Simmons

16 minutes ago

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have released a new Terminator: Genisys TV spot that features a lot of new footage. While many are rightfully wary of the new Terminator film, I have to admit the effects on display in this new trailer are rather impressive. We also get our first look at J.K. Simmons’ character, who appears to be someone in the vein of Miles Dyson who is enlisted by Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) to help “stop the end of the world.” Of course there’s also a good look at the new new Terminator, played by Byung-hun Lee, who appears to have a full bag of tricks up his sleeve, and if you’re in the mood for more Arnold Scwarzenegger vs. Arnold Scwarzenegger action, this is the TV spot for you. Check out the new Terminator: Genisys TV spot below, which initially premiered on Yahoo!. Directed »

Gone Girl Scribe Gillian Flynn Boards Steve McQueen’s Heist Thriller

31 minutes ago

Adaptations are tricky to pull off. The screenwriter has to please fans of the source material by honoring the spirit of the book/comic book/etc., while also ensuring that the story works as a feature film. Movies and books are very different mediums, and so the screenwriter makes all the difference. Sometimes we get brilliant adaptations like the Harry Potter series, and then other times the films are too slavish to the material, like some of the Twilight movies. A recent example of a great adaptation is last year’s Gone Girl. Obviously having David Fincher as your director gives you a leg up, but the screenplay was particularly impressive, especially considering that it was written by the book’s author, Gillian Flynn. She did a magnificent job of streamlining her story into a feature film that felt complete and satisfying on its own, and it’s no surprise »

First Look at Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool Costume Revealed

1 hour ago

After years of hoping, crossing fingers, and plenty of breath holding, production is now (almost impossibly) underway on a Deadpool movie. This isn’t some tiny-budget or off brand take on the character; 20th Century Fox finally pulled the trigger, and cameras are rolling as we speak on director Tim Miller’s proper adaptation of the popular Marvel Comics antihero. Ryan Reynolds has been set to play the character for a long time now and his dream is finally being fulfilled. He’s been pretty open with fans on Twitter recently, sharing some sneak peeks from the set, but now he’s offered the biggest reveal of all: the Deadpool costume. The costume isn’t entirely different from the one we saw in the proof-of-concept video that “leaked” online last year, which was created by Miller to show how Deadpool would work onscreen. That iteration of the Merc with a »

Coach to Return to NBC for 13-Episode Run, with Craig T. Nelson

1 hour ago

Get that letterman jacket out of storage and get ready for more old white people on TV. Following this week’s announcement that Fox will be backing a six-episode return of Chris Carter’s The X-Files, NBC has now announced that they have ordered a 13-episode renewal of Coach, the inexplicably long-running sitcom that made a star out of Craig T. Nelson. The basic plot find’s Nelson’s Hayden Fox playing second-fiddle to his son, the head coach of an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that has never had a football team before. Barry Kemp, the creator-producer-writer of the original series, which went off the air in 1997, will return to write the new series, while also executive producing the show with Nelson. [caption id="attachment_87541" align="alignright" width="352"] Image via Pixar[/caption] Little else is known about the casting or salient narrative details of the new series, other than it will be a multi-cam sitcom. »

The Riot Club Review

1 hour ago

[This is a re-post of my The Riot Club review from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. The film is available on VOD and in select theaters starting today, March 27th.] It’s nice to think that we live in a pretty fair world.  Sure humanity is sprawling and varied, but our differences are mostly overcome by a sense of harmony or karma.  It’s nice to think that, but it’s not necessarily true.  Life isn’t fair.  We aren’t all born with equal opportunity.  You can’t be “whatever you want to be” when you grow up.  The fact of the matter is, our destiny comes with restrictions based on the circumstances into which we are born.  Location, time period, genetics—these are all factors that determine the ill-defined (but definitely real) limit to our reach, and like it or not, few are more significant than wealth and status. Director Lone Scherfig’s (An Education) new film, The Riot Club, tackles class and social structure head-on from the eye of the young elite, following the members of a »

Shailene Woodley Talks Insurgent and Oliver Stone’s Snowden

1 hour ago

With director Robert Schwentke’s Divergent sequel, Insurgent, opening last weekend, I recently sat down with Shailene Woodley for an exclusive interview. She talked about what it was like on the set of the sequel, deleted scenes, collaborating with Schwentke and bigger scope of the sequel, working with Oliver Stone on Snowden with Joseph Gordon-levitt, and more. In The Divergent Series: Insurgent, the second in what will be a four-film adaptation of author Veronica Roth’s dystopian sci-fi series, the principal characters are on the run in the fringes of society and searching for answers after breaking open the world as they knew it. The film stars Theo James Miles TellerAnsel ElgortNaomi Watts, Octavia SpencerJai CourtneyKate WinsletDaniel Dae KimMaggie QRay Stevenson, and Zoe Kravitz. For more on the film, watch the trailers. Here’s Woodley followed by bullet points of what we talked about. »

Spectre To Be Released in IMAX

1 hour ago

Skyfall was the first James Bond film to play in IMAX, and since that picture became the 9th highest grossing movie of all-time, it’s not much of a surprise that the sequel, Spectre, is also getting the IMAX treatment. I didn’t see Skyfall in IMAX, and while neither movie was filmed using IMAX cameras, it wouldn’t surprise me if both looked terrific. And as an added bonus: neither film is in 3D (or at least no post-conversion for Spectre has been announced so far). Check out the press release below, and come back later today to see the Spectre teaser trailer. The film opens November 6th, and stars Daniel Craig as James Bond, Ben Wishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M, Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, David Bautista as Mr. Hinx and Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, and Stephanie Sigman as Estrella. »

Director Ted Geoghegan and the Cast Talk We Are Still Here at SXSW

2 hours ago

Forget the teaser trailer and the full feature. Have you seen the first official still from Ted Geoghegan’s feature directorial debut, We Are Still Here? (It's on the right.) That image alone proves it’s one heck of a splatter film. The story centers on Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Barbara Crampton). After their son is killed in a car crash, they opt to get away from it all and move to a house in the New England countryside. Trouble is, they don't move into just any old house. They move into one with an especially dark and sinister history. While in Austin for SXSW, I got the opportunity to sit down with Geoghegan, Crampton, Sensenig and co-stars Larry Fessenden, Monte Markham and Lisa Marie to discuss what it took to make the film. The group talked about their first impressions of Geoghegan’s script, finding the perfect house, »

Going Clear: Scientology And The Prison Of Belief Review

2 hours ago

In the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, a former member of the Church of Scientology says she simply wants "the truth to be known." Author Lawrence Wright, on whose book the documentary is based, says something similar: he never set out to write an exposé, but only wanted to understand what Scientology was all about. What he uncovered was truly bizarre, and damming. Writer and director Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) follows a mostly linear path through Scientology's origins to its current status, explaining its core principles alongside details of its systemic abuses. Gibney interviews eight former members, many of whom were high-ranking officials within the organization for decades, like top lieutenants Mark Rathbun and Mike Rinder. Wright himself also comments extensively on the history of Scientology, particularly regarding its larger-than-life founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

White God Interview: Director Kornél Mundruczó

2 hours ago

White God,Kornél Mundruczó’s riveting film about a courageous young girl (Lili/Zsófia Psotta) and her beloved dog, Hagen, is both a cautionary tale about our presumed superiority over lesser beasts and a powerful metaphor for the increasingly acrimonious cultural and political tensions in Europe today over immigration and identity. When Hagen is abandoned on the streets of Budapest because his mixed breed makes him an undesirable pet, his perilous journey incites a revolution. One of contemporary Hungarian cinema’s most original voices, Mundruczó plays with genre and tone in fascinating ways and elicits strong performances from his unique cast of human and canine actors. In an exclusive interview, Mundruczó revealed why the film was very personal, how he wanted Lili’s relationship with Hagen and Hagen’s betrayal to act as a mirror reflecting societal pressure and the inequity between majorities and minorities, the connections between his film »

First Southpaw Trailer Has Jake Gyllenhaal Fighting to Get His Daughter Back

3 hours ago

The first Southpaw trailer has gone online, and it basically takes you through the entire film even going so far as to show the death of a major character (granted, it’s an inciting event, but they could probably cut around it). The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a boxer who must fight his way back to the top after he loses custody of his daughter due to personal tragedies and mistakes. Setting aside that the trailer shows too much, it still looks like a good movie, and following End of Watch, Prisoners, Enemy, and Nightcrawler, Gyllenhaal is clearly at the top of his game right now. I’m still wary of director Antonie Fuqua’s work, but perhaps he’s found a good partner in screenwriter Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy). Solid boxing dramas are hard to come by, but hopefully Southpaw will be one of them. Check out the Southpaw trailer below. »

New Trailer for J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy

3 hours ago

I haven't read J.K. Rowling's first novel aimed at grown-ups, The Casual Vacancy (though I've read all of the Harry Potter books so I guess that makes me look like something of a philistine), but the new miniseries coming to HBO looks intriguing. It's funny though, I can't tell if all of the F-bombs and Nsfw shenanigans on display here are intended to serve as a signifier ("this isn't a kids book, we swear") or if they're an organic representation of the plot. Regardless, the show looks fun enough. And this new trailer has a lot more going for it than the first teaser did. Check out The Casual Vacancy trailer below. The miniseries is directed by Jonny Campbell from a script by Sarah Phelps and stars Rory KinnearSimon McBurney, and Harry Potter alum Michael Gambon. It debuts on HBO on April 29th. Here's the official synopsis: The Casual Vacancy centres on Pagford, »

New Mad Max: Fury Road TV Spot Titled “Explosions”; Is Not Misleading

3 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released a new Mad Max: Fury Road TV spot, appropriately titled “Explosions”. The film stars Tom Hardy as Mad Max, who joins up with Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) as they flee across the post-apocalyptic wasteland from a gang of ruthless warlords. Although this is a brief TV spot, there are some bits of new footage, and Mad Max remains one of my most-anticipated films of the year. Check out the Mad Max: Fury Road TV spot below.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus In Talks for Force Majeure Remake

14 hours ago

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is circling a starring role in Fox Searchlight's remake of the award-winning Swedish drama Force Majeure. This could be a piece of casting genius. Ruben Ostlund’s 2014 film examines marriage, family and gender dynamics by asking, what would you do in a dire emergency? The original film centers on a family who goes vacationing in the French Alps when an avalanche tumbles down on their resort. The mother tries to protect her two children while the father runs inside the building, abandoning his family. When they are all safely reunited, his actions raise questions and consequences that threaten the stability of his family. THR reports that Dreyfus is in negotiations for the role as the mother and will produce the project as well. She's is perfect for the role. While instant remakes tend to draw my ire and side-eye as obvious cash grabs, Dreyfus' involvement in »

Paul Feig Talks Spy, Jason Statham, and Test Screenings

15 hours ago

When a big movie studio is willing to show a film months before its release, they know they have the goods. That was definitely the case when 20th Century Fox world premiered writer-director Paul Feig’s comedy Spy at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.  The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose ByrneMiranda HartBobby CannavaleAllison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. During the premiere, the crowd was laughing so loud I missed lines of dialogue between Statham and McCarthy. Trust me, »

16 hours ago

This week on The Collision, Perri, Adam, and I talk about The Divergent Series: Insurgent, especially with regards to how the film vastly differs from the books, so this episode has full spoilers for both, although there are no spoilers for the final book in the series, Allegiant .  We also discuss the future of the film franchise, how it relates to other Ya properties, our disappointment that Ya franchises like Beautiful Creatures and Vampire Academy died after one entry, and more.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.

Amanda Seyfried Talks While We’Re Young and Ted 2

16 hours ago

On my way to the While We’re Young press day to talk to Amanda Seyfried I checked my Timehop app and it told me that exactly five years ago to the day, I ran my very first interview with her for the movie Chloe. That certainly made for a sobering reminder of how long I’ve been at it, but perhaps it’s kind of appropriate to walk into an interview for a movie like this with that in mind. The film stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as Josh and Cornelia, a happy couple who suddenly realize that something is missing. Their best friends are gearing up to have a baby, but instead of supporting them, they become infatuated with a younger couple, Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Seyfried). They’re fun-loving, easy going, and Josh and Cornelia find their care-free lifestyle invigorating. During my interview with Seyfried »
