Box office preview: Johnny Depp's 'Transcendence' heads for an Earth-bound debut

9 hours ago

Johnny Depp is back in theaters this weekend for the first time since last summer’s The Lone Ranger – but his $100 million sci-fi thriller Transcendence isn’t the only movie with a shot at the box office crown. There’s strong competition from both last week’s champ Captain America: Winter Soldier and the animated Rio 2, which could get an additional boost from kids who aren’t school-bound on Good Friday. The inspirational Heaven Is for Real and the profane A Haunted House 2 are also in the running.

Here’s how the weekend could go:

Director Zack Parker on his unforgettable thriller 'Proxy'

9 hours ago

Seeing director Zack Parker’s new thriller Proxy will undoubtedly represent two of the most unforgettable hours you spend in the cinema this year — if, that is, you can get past the first five minutes. In the film, Alexia Rasmussen plays a heavily pregnant woman named Esther who loses her baby as the result of a brutal beating, which takes place in the aforementioned opening minutes, and subsequently befriends another bereaved mother called Melanie (Alexa Havins) at a grief support group. But is Melanie quite what she seems? And, for that matter, is Esther?

10 hours ago

In Match, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18, Patrick Stewart plays a renowned former dancer and Juilliard teacher, who welcomes the opportunity to tell old stories when a graduate student (Carla Gugino) and her husband (Matthew Lillard) arrange an interview for her dissertation on contemporary-dance history.

Tribeca Film Festival: Leighton Meester has no barriers in 'Life Partners' -- Exclusive Video

12 hours ago

When Leighton Meester signed on to the Bff dramedy Life Partners, she never imagined she’d try something Blair Waldorf would never even consider: going off script.

“What you see is mostly improvised,” explains Meester, who stars as underachieving lesbian Sasha in the film directed by Susanna Fogel and written by Joni Lefkowitz. “I hadn’t had a lot of experience with free-for-all improvisation, but I felt that trying new things was really fun and helped make me feel more connected to the character. She is flawed, and that’s what I related to most.”

'Stage Fright' filmmakers talk Meat Loaf, Minnie Driver, and musical mayhem -- Exclusive Video

14 hours ago

How gory is the new slasher movie Stage Fright? This gory: During her post-shoot Adr recording session, actress Minnie Driver wouldn’t even watch her own, very early demise. “It was too gruesome for her,” says director Jerome Sable.

So why did Driver agree to appear in the film in the first place? “She had been in The Phantom of the Opera, the film version ,” explains Sable. “So I appealed to her on that level.”

Oh, right. There’s something we forgot to mention about Stage Fright. In addition to being a full-on, blood-soaked horror flick, the film is also a full-fledged, »

Robert Pattinson gets apocalyptic in trailer for 'The Rover' -- Video

15 hours ago

As a keen student of the Mad Max movies, I’m never sure whether the Australian countryside will be the best, or the absolute worst, place to hole up come the inevitable apocalypse. And the trailer for the new, Cannes-selected film The Rover only makes the issue murkier.

Written and directed by David Michôd — the filmmaker responsible for 2010′s wonderful Animal Kingdom – the movie stars Guy Pearce as a loner wandering through the Aussie outback a decade after civilization has collapsed, and Robert Pattinson as a man he forces to help track down the gang who steals his car.

'Cold in July' trailer: Michael C. Hall's in trouble -- Video

16 April 2014 11:40 AM, PDT

Letting a burglar invade your home may be a whole lot less messy than shooting that burglar in self-defense – at least, that’s the message the new trailer for Cold in July sends.

The movie, made by Jim Mickle and Nick Damici, is adapted from Joe Lansdale ’80s-set novel of the same name about a man who shoots and kills a burglar only for the burglar’s father to come after him for revenge. Michael C. Hall, Don Johnson, and Sam Shepard star in the thriller.

Cold in July will open in select theaters and will be available on VOD »

Tribeca Film Festival: Check out a terrifying still from 'Extraterrestrial' -- Exclusive Image

16 April 2014 9:57 AM, PDT

There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.

We haven’t seen the new film Extraterrestrial, which receives its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 18. But judging by both the movie’s official synopsis — “a group’s getaway into the woods dissolves into a full-throttle fight for their lives when unwelcome aliens invade” — and the exclusive still you can see above, we’re going to go ahead and assume this movie »

Tribeca: Between Nas and 'Begin Again,' what are the festival's must-see movies

16 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.
