Kathleen Quinlan in After
Set in the winter of 2002 in chilly upstate New York, After tells the story of a middle-class family struggling with the financial consequences of a failing business and a series of inter-generational conflicts and rivalries. Quinlan stars as Nora Valentino, a woman whose husband, Mitch (John Doman, Blue Valentine), loves her more than anything in the world. So much so that he, along with his four children and sister-in-law, have gone to extreme lengths to hide a horror too painful for Nora to bear. And if this intricately buried secret is revealed, it could alter everyone’s lives irrevocably.
We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best.
2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

"Journalism is printing something that someone does not want printed. Everything else is public relations." - George Orwell
It can be difficult to remember the past. Most especially, in today’s high-speed society, when ideals, opinions, and events converge, disseminate, and dissolve at the speed of light, much is often lost in translation. In a time of simpler ideals, journalists were not faced with the power of connectivity that exists today. In the early days of news coverage, the biggest stories came out of governments, wars, churches, and social change. Interviews with such personalities like Martin Luther King Jr., Richard M. Nixon, or Mahatma Ghandi were only seen by the few who were available to see them at the time they were broadcast and rarely were they repeated.
Huge news events like the assassination of JFK, frontline coverage of Vietnam, or the Apollo 13 accident received nationwide coverage, filling up »

The story is based on an e-book written by Andy Weir that follows an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars and must figure out how to stay alive long enough to get back home. The movie has been described as a cross between Cast Away and Apollo 13.
Chastain is a great actress, and she and Damon should make a great on screen team. She's also been in films such as Lawless, Tree of Life, and A Most Violent Year, which comes out later this year, as well as Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.
Here's a more detailed description from the book:
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. »

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”
Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars, »

As production looms for the pilot episode of HBO’s televisual Westworld adaptation, the cast continues to grow. When you have to create a whole creepy theme park and fill it with people, a large cast is to be expected.
Last week we brought you the news that Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), Rodrigo Santoro (both 300 movies and Dominion), Shannon Woodward (Raising Hope), Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Hercules), Angela Srafyan (The Good Guys) and Simon Quarterman (The Devil Inside) were all joining Anthony Hopkins on the show. Cyclops himself, James Marsden, also joined the ranks yesterday (although Film Divider had revealed his involvement some time ago).
Ed Harris is heading to TV in a villainous role.
The “Apollo 13″ and “The Abyss” actor has signed on to join HBO’s “Westworld” in key evil role, Variety has confirmed. He joins an already-announced cast of Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Shannon Woodward.
Harris will star as The Man in Black, described as the “distillation of pure villainy into one man.”
J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub and Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk are producing the adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film, which followed a robot malfunction that led to terror in a theme park. “Person of Interest’s” Jonathan Nolan will produce and direct the Warner Bros. Television one-hour drama, and co-wrote the pilot with exec producer Lisa Joy. Kathy Lingg serves as co-executive producer, with Athena Wickham as a producer, David Coatsworth as co-executive producer and line producer and Susie Ekins as co-producer.
The role is a return to HBO for Harris. »

The four-time Oscar nominee’s character is called The Man in Black, and is described as “the distillation of pure villainy into one man.” He joins previously cast star — and fellow series television newcomer—Anthony Hopkins, along with Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, and Shannon Woodward.
The Warner Bros.-produced sci-fi pilot produced by J.J Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk updates Michael Crichton’s 1973 classic film about a theme park where androids fulfill dark human desires. »

Four-time Oscar nominee Ed Harris has landed a pivotal role in the premium cable network's adaptation of the sci-fi hit, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Inspired by Michael Crichton's 1973 feature film, the drama is billed as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin. Harris (The Hours, Pollock, The Truman Show, Apollo 13) will star as The Man in Black, described as the distillation of pure villainy into one man. He joins a cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel

Everybody loves a good disaster flick. There’s just something about watching the world (often literally) fall to pieces from the comfort of a movie theatre or couch that we just can’t get enough of.
This week, another addition to the disaster genre makes its way onto the big screen with Into the Storm, a found-footage film involving a group of high school students that capture the horror of a massive tornado. The film stars Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”), Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Jeremy Sumpter (“Friday Night Lights”).
This isn’t the first film to chronicle the events surrounding rogue tornadoes. 1996’s Twister set the bar for tornado movies, but we think Into the Storm might give it a run for its money based on the wickedly intense trailer.

Now's the time to get moonstruck. Forty-five years ago Sunday, Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world. Armstrong's "one small step ... one giant leap" on the dusty lunar surface July 20, 1969, still stirs hearts. You can join the celebration, without needing to travel to the launch site at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, where Nasa will honor Armstrong on Monday with a renaming ceremony of the historic Operations and Checkout Building. Both Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot who orbited the moon, will be there. At the very least, »
