Men, Women & Children Review

7 hours ago

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.  Men, Women & Children opens today in limited release.] It’s comforting to view the Internet as a force. Things existed one way, the Internet came along, completely changed everything, and now—for better or worse—those things are barely recognizable. We’re all looking down, clacking into our smart phones, so the Internet must have transformed us, right? It’s just so powerful, and we were caught in its wake. Current communication technology has changed us, but Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children wryly, wisely, and astutely observes our fears and insecurities long preceded our smartphones. The film is a sharp commentary on the decay of intimacy as we, isolated in the cosmos, have now become isolated from each other. Woven together with well-crafted storylines, sharp performances, and convincing drama, Reitman’s latest film mostly avoids being a cautionary tale and instead provides an insightful look on how online communication changes our relationships but doesn’t define our lives. »

David Tennant Talks Gracepoint, Working on His American Accent, Possibility of Future Seasons, and More

8 hours ago

The Fox TV series Gracepoint, adapted from the British series Broadchurch, is a riveting 10-part mystery about the tragic murder of a young boy in a small northern California seaside town, and the major police investigation and media frenzy that ensue.  Leading the investigation is Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant), who works with Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) to solve a case that will upend the lives of the town’s residents. During this recent interview to discuss the similarities and differences of both shows, as he plays the lead in each, actor David Tennant talked about the complex combination of genres in telling this story, working on his American accent for the role, working with co-star Anna Gunn, that there could be future seasons of the American version, much like they’re already doing Series 2 in the U.K., playing each scene as it came, instead of focusing in »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: “Heavy is the Head”

8 hours ago

Welcome back, true believers!  When last we left our band of wayward agents, the hidden artifact known as the Obelisk had been taken by Avengers-villain, Crusher Creel (aka the Absorbing Man).  The team lost one of their newest members apparently as Lucy Lawless’ Hartlay bit the bullet and was killed in the final minutes of the season premiere, though this is the Marvel universe and resurrections are fair game for any character.  Tonight, we’ll see the return of the mysterious “woman in the flower dress”, Raina, apparently seeking to help the team rather than inhibit them.  Will the team join their old foe in attempting to reclaim the Obelisk?  Will Fitz go even crazier in this episode?  Why oh why didn’t I make a joke about the Absorbing Man not being played by Nick Nolte during the last recap?  All this and more in the recap for the »

Interstellar to Screen in Select Theaters Three Days Early?

10 hours ago

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until Friday, November 7th, but apparently some folks will be seeing it three days early because there are theaters in Los Angeles that are selling tickets to IMAX screenings beginning at 8:00pm on Tuesday, November 4th. It’d make sense for Paramount to hold midnight showings the night before the big debut, but three days early is another story.  If this is the real deal, it’s surprising the studio hasn’t made an official announcement about this yet.  Hit the jump for more on these Interstellar early showings.  The film stars Matthew McConaugheyAnne HathawayJessica ChastainCasey AffleckMichael CaineDavid OyelowoWes BentleyJohn LithgowEllen BurstynTopher GraceDavid GyasiMackenzie FoyBill IrwinTimothée Chalamet and Matt Damon.

First Ascension Trailer Reveals the Starship Launched to Save the Human Race

11 hours ago

Killer Women came and went pretty fast, but Tricia Helfer’s got another series on the way and it looks far more promising.  Ascension is a six-hour mini-series that goes down on a starship carrying 600 people on a mission to save the human race by populating a new world.  Helfer plays Viondra Denniger, a beautiful but manipulative power broker aboard the starship Ascension. The show’s very first trailer just dropped and even though the piece is only 30 seconds long, it still offers up a fairly comprehensive sense of the Ascension’s mission as well as an effective tease of what sends it into chaos.  Hit the jump to check out the Ascension trailer for yourself.  The mini-series debuts on Syfy on November 24th at 9/8c and also stars Brian Van HoltAndrea RothBrandon P. BellTiffany Lonsdale and Pj Boudousque. Via EW. Here’s the official synopsis for Ascension: In 1963, the U. »

New Horrible Bosses 2 Trailer: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis Are Entrepreneurs

14 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released a new Horrible Bosses 2 trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel.  Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprise their roles from the first film, and this time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom.  This trailer isn’t quite as funny as the previous one, but there are still some standout jokes thanks to the main trio.  While comedy follow-ups are incredibly hard to pull off, the chemistry of Bateman, Day, and Sudeikis is fantastically infectious so I'm optimistic here.  Moreover, between this and Stretch, Pine is proving himself to be quite the comedic talent. Watch the new theatrical Horrible Bosses 2 trailer after the jump.  Directed by Sean Anders, the film also stars Jennifer Aniston, »

Zombieland 2 Back from the Dead with New Writer; Ruben Fleischer Intends to Direct

15 hours ago

Could it be that Zombieland 2 might actually happen after all?  The 2009 comedy was a big hit with both audiences and critics, putting a smart spin on the zombie genre with an excellent ensemble and one of the best-used cameos in recent memory.  Sony Pictures was keen on making a sequel, as was some of the cast (most notably Woody Harrelson), but they were never able to come up with a script that everyone was happy with.  Last we heard—which was nearly two years ago—director Ruben Fleischer said there were no immediate plans for Zombieland 2, and Amazon even attempted a Zombieland TV series that was met with a resounding "no thank you." But now it appears that there’s life in the follow-up yet, as Sony has hired a new screenwriter to pen a script under the supervision of Fleischer, who intends to return as director.  More after the jump. »

Yvette Nicole Brown Leaving Community

16 hours ago

Though Community was brought back from the dead this summer after Yahoo Screen picked up the comedy following NBC’s cancellation, it will return with one less original cast member.  TV Guide reports that Yvette Nicole Brown will be departing the show before its upcoming sixth season due to family reasons, as the actress explains that she needs to care for her ailing father.  The split from the show was amicable as executive producers Dan Harmon and Chris McKenna said in a joint statement, “Yvette was an integral part of Community and is irreplaceable. We are sad to see her go and wish her the very best.”  More after the jump. While Brown will be leaving Community, TV Guide notes that she will remain onboard the new CBS sitcom The Odd Couple with Matthew Perry.  That show is a multi-cam format, which is much more agreeable schedule-wise, and Sony has »

Brett Ratner and Bill Lawrence Developing Rush Hour TV Show

16 hours ago

Hot on the heels of the news that Fox is developing a TV series adaptation of the 1988 film Big comes word that a Rush Hour TV show is also in development—and from another Cougar Town executive producer, no less.  Deadline reports that director Brett Ratner and TV vet Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) have closed a deal with Warner Bros. TV to co-write and executive produce an hourlong action comedy adaptation of the Rush Hour franchise.  Ratner directed all three films in the series, which was essentially a trio of buddy cop action-comedies revolving around a straight-laced Hong Kong cop (Jackie Chan) who is paired with a cocky, fast-talking Lapd officer (Chris Tucker).  More on the Rush Hour TV show after the jump. Per Deadline, the plan for the Rush Hour TV show is to stay close to the premise of the first film, revolving around the oddball pairing of the two cops. »

DreamWorks Animation is putting together the voice cast for one of its upcoming films.  Heat Vision reports that Alec Baldwin and Kevin Spacey will lead the voice cast for Boss Baby, which is described as a fantastical comedy revolving around a “fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby (Baldwin) and his seven-year-old brother, who is jealous of the new arrival.”  The brother sets out on a mission to win back the sole affection of his parents and ends up stumbling upon a secret plot by the CEO of Puppy Co.

New Dracula Untold Featurette Highlights Sarah Gadon’s Mirena

18 hours ago

Dracula Untold is all about Vlad’s (Luke Evans) choice to become a vampire so that he can defend his people against Mehmet’s (Dominic Cooper) threat, but one of the main reasons he makes that decision at all is due to his undying love for his wife, Mirena (Sarah Gadon). Clearly Dracula Untold will be loaded with fangs, bats and epic battles, but it’s also a movie rooted in romance and family.  Hit the jump to find out more about Mirena’s effect on Vlad in a brand new Dracula Untold featurette and if you’d like even more information on the character, click here to check out my interview with Gadon from our set visit.  Dracula Untold hits theaters in 2D and IMAX on October 17th and also stars Charles Dance, Noah Huntley and Art Parkinson.

The Films of David Fincher: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

18 hours ago

[With the upcoming release of his new film Gone Girl, I’m taking a look back at the work of director David Fincher.  These articles contain spoilers.] Up to this point in this series, I've mostly sided with Fincher, his decisions, and his thoughts on his movies.  But even by his own metric and intentions, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is almost a complete and utter failure.  I understand why Fincher would feel a kinship with Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), but his reasons for making the movie—the prospect of an R-rated franchise and the relationship between Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and Salander—are, respectively, superficial and underdeveloped.  Looking over the making-of documentary and his commentary track, I'm astonished at the gulf between Fincher's intentions and what the movie presents. Like with Zodiac, Fincher states he didn't want to make another serial killer movie, and I think in that regard, Dragon Tattoo holds to that promise.  But the movie also doesn't adhere to what Fincher envisioned.  On the commentary track he says, "it was really »

Fox Developing Big TV Show from Enlisted Creators

19 hours ago

Mining familiar IP is not a new notion in the world of television, and fresh off the debut of its Batman semi-prequel series Gotham, Fox is now developing a Big TV show.  Deadline reports that Enlisted executive producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce have sold a half-hour comedy adaptation of Big to Fox that they will write and executive produce.  Loosely based on Penny Marshall’s classic 1988 film starring Tom Hanks, the potential series is described as a show that “explores what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever.”  This is actually pretty thematically relevant material as today’s generation doesn’t feel forced to “grow up” as soon as they graduate from college, and instead fully embrace their nostalgia for the movies, TV shows, and even commercials that they enjoyed as kids. »

Keanu Reeves Continues to Kick Ass in New John Wick Trailer and Images

Lionsgate has released a new John Wick trailer for what’s shaping up to be one of the biggest out-of-nowhere surprises of the year.  Just a month or so ago, I didn’t even know this movie existed.  Then Lionsgate acquired the revenge thriller off of positive buzz and released a fantastic debut trailer that teased a fun, slick, and highly quotable actioner complete with a swell-looking lead performance by Keanu Reeves.  The actor plays a former hitman who comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters who took everything from him, and this new, final trailer offers up another promising look at the film.  Yeah, I’m thinking I’m gonna see this.

20 hours ago

On the new ABC drama series Forever, Doctor Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd) is hiding a big secret. New York City's star medical examiner not only studies the dead to solve criminal cases, but also to look for answers as to why he's been alive for 200 years. With the help of his best friend and confidant, Abe (Judd Hirsch), who is the only one that knows his secret, Henry's remarkable observation skills are proving to be quite useful for Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza), but they're also raising questions and curiosity. During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Ioan Gruffudd talked about how he got involved with Forever, keeping the element of danger when your character can never die, the awkwardness of always coming back to life naked, working with Judd Hirsch, Henry’s mysterious enemy, and not needing to know all of the answers.  Check out what he »

“A Very Big, Epic Sci-Fi” Tetris Movie in the Works, Obviously [Updated]

21 hours ago

There was Battleship in the summer of 2012, Ouija’s on the way and there were attempts to give Stretch Armstrong and View-Master the big screen treatment as well.  At this point, why would anyone be surprised that someone’s determined to turn Tetris into movie, too? Apparently Threshold Entertainment is joining forces with the Tetris Company to bring the iconic 80s game to the big screen live-action-style.  The film’s got no director or actors attached, but the companies do have the story figured out.  Hit the jump for more on the plan to make a Tetris movie. [Update: Threshold just sent out an official press release confirming the project.] After the painfully uninspiring approach to the Battleship film that was barely reminiscent of the source material, the idea of going live-action with a Tetris movie feel like quite the stretch.  However, Threshold CEO Larry Kasanoff told The Wall Street Journal: “Brands are the new stars of Hollywood.  We have a story »

Fall Pilot Review: Selfie

21 hours ago

Based on Pygmalion and My Fair LadySelfie follows Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) as she comes to learn that there is more to life than social media.  Helping her along on her journey of self discovery and manners is Henry Higenbottam (John Cho), who works with Eliza, and who is a master of rebranding (she, naturally, works in sales).  The series is created by Suburgatory's Emily Kapnek, who gives it her trademark fast-paced style.  Hit the jump to see if this ABC comedy deserves a spot on your DVR. Selfie has been heavily promoted by ABC for months, replaying the same unfunny clips over and over again.  Early word for those who had seen the pilot was that there was very little to redeem it. But then there's Karen Gillan and John Cho.  I truly could not imagine any two other actors who would have convinced me to sit through Selfie's pilot. »
