First Pictures from Ryan Gosling's Directorial Debut 'Lost River'

18 April 2014 10:05 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Originally titled How to Catch a Monster, Ryan Gosling's directorial debut was just accepted into the Un Certain Regard selection at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (see the lineup here) under the title Lost River and now we have our first look at two pictures from the upcoming fantasy, which Warner Bros. will release later this year. On top of directing, Gosling also wrote the screenplay, as for the actors, he's cast his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks in the lead role alongside his The Place Beyond the Pines co-stars Ben Mendelsohn and Eva Mendes and Saoirse Ronan, whom he would have starred with if he'd remained in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones. Described as a fantasy/thriller, the film centers on a single mother (Hendricks) who's swept into a dark underworld, while her teenage son discovers a road that leads him to a secret underwater town.

Chloë Moretz Goes Out-of-Body in First Trailer for If I Stay

16 April 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I’m so used to seeing Chloë Moretz either kicking ass as a masked vigilante or with extraordinary abilities in a horror remake (Let Me In, Carrie) that it’s always a bit jarring to see the young actress play a, you know, regular teenager. The trailer for If I Stay, an adaptation of Gayle Forman’s bestselling novel, features Moretz caressing the cello and canoodling with boys. If that’s all this story had to offer I wouldn’t have bothered posting that cloying stuff to a site dedicated to all things geek. I haven’t read Forman’s novel, so just as I was about to close the window for the trailer, the supernatural/other plane aspect of the film kicked in. Here’s the synopsis for the movie to give you a clue as to what’s in store for you so you don’t make the »

‘If I Stay’ Trailer Introduces Chloe Grace Moretz’s Talent to Tragedy

16 April 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In If I Stay, Chloe Moretz plays a talented musician on the cusp of auditioning for The Juilliard School. She’s got all the happiness that being 17 can afford, but it’s all taken away by a severe car accident that leaves her in a coma. While she hangs on the edge of death, she has an out of body experience that allows her present life (with all the threat and promise of its future) to flash literally in front of her eyes. It shares a surface-level spiritual connection to the recent Heaven is For Real, but it more obviously resembles The Lovely Bones. Hopefully that won’t hold it back. Check out the trailer for yourself: The Lovely Bones is strong with this one. Sincerely. Except she’s not in Heaven. Unfortunately, that means that it will always teeter on the edge of schmaltz. The trailer isn’t doing it any favors on that soft focus »

First Powerful Trailer for Adaptation 'If I Stay' Starring Chloe Moretz

15 April 2014 9:22 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Life is this big, fat, gigantic, stinking mess, and that's the beauty of it, too..." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's If I Stay, an adaptation of Gayle Forman's novel of the same name about an aspiring musician who must overcome great tragedy and make an impossible decision. Chloe Moretz stars, along with Jamie Blackley as the boy, plus Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds and Stacy Keach This looks like a heartbreaker to compete with Fault in Our Stars, but, maybe by the end, a heartwarmer, too. The footage looks solid, nothing like The Lovely Bones thankfully. Take a look. Here's the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's adaptation of If I Stay, direct from MTV's YouTube: Synopsis for If I Stay, adapted from the novel by Gayle Forman. Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever »

Film Review: ‘Heaven Is for Real’

15 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After the contentious likes of “Noah” and “God’s Not Dead,” Hollywood’s season of Christian-themed cinema continues in relatively innocuous fashion with “Heaven Is for Real,” a bland, earnest yet appreciably restrained adaptation of Midwestern minister Todd Burpo’s inspirational bestseller about his young son’s miraculous glimpse of eternity. Audiences not inclined to suspend their disbelief, let alone take a leap of faith, will have no use for the film’s corn-fed sincerity or its clean-scrubbed celestial visions. Still, it’s something of a relief to report that the movie isn’t quite the vomitous bucket of spiritual saccharine the ads would suggest, and those willing to engage may be pleasantly surprised by some of its understated virtues: a carefully open-minded appeal to skeptics, a wry sense of humor that wards off sententiousness at key moments, and a fine cast of name actors (led by Greg Kinnear) who »

Benedict Cumberbatch Won't Be in 'Star Wars: Episode VII' After All

14 April 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After being rumored, debunked and reaffirmed, it appears Benedict Cumberbatch won't be taking a role in Star Wars: Episode VII after all. The actor's name first surfaced last fall, but the actor completely debunked those rumors while appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. But the source of the rumor reaffirmed their story a couple weeks later when they reported Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones, The Grand Budapest Hotel) had auditioned for a role. But now Cumberbatch says that he will not be in the film, but seemingly confirms that he was in the running for a role, at least at one time. More below! Speaking with Australian outlet The Iris (via ComingSoon), Cumberbatch revealed: "I would've liked a part in Jj's new 'Star Wars' but it won't happen sadly." It sounds like Cumberbatch definitely talked to his Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams about a role, »

'Sex' veteran lands The CW's 'iZombie' lead

12 March 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

  After moving ahead to cast a number of supporting roles, The CW and Wbtv have found a leading lady for the DC Comics adaptation "iZombie." Rose McIver is in place to star in "iZombie," which comes from "Veronica Mars" scribes Rob Thomas & Diane Ruggiero. The "iZombie" pilot will be directed by Thomas. A recently red-hot veteran of "Masters of Sex" and "Once Upon a Time," McIver will play med student-turned-zombie Olivia "Liv" Moore. After her transformation, Liv takes a job at the coroner's office, which initially is for the access to yummy, delicious brains. She soon discovers that with each mushy, brainy meal, she's also devouring the memories of the deceased, so she begins to use this information to work with a medical examiner and a police detective to solve crimes. The pilot's most recent addition was "One Tree Hill" veteran Robert Buckley playing Liv's ex-fiance. Previously cast co-stars include Malcolm Goodwin, »

Tom McCarthy Writing & Possibly Directing 'Tommysaurus Rex' Movie

7 March 2014 9:14 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Tommysaurus Rex and Tom McCarthy - sounds like a perfect match. Over at Heat Vision they're reporting interesting development news on a comic book adaptation that's been in the works since 2004. Universal first acquired the rights to adapt Doug TenNapel's graphic novel Tommysaurus Rex back in 2004, ten years ago, for around $1 million. The project has been bouncing around at the studio ever since, but now they've picked up Tom McCarthy, an actor/writer/producer and director who will be co-writing the script and possibly directing the movie, too. Now I actually have some hope this might turn out pretty damn good. Most may recognize Tom McCarthy from the Meet the Parents series, or Michael Clayton, 2012, The Lovely Bones and so on. However, McCarthy is actually an award-winning director, behind the films The Station Agent, The Visitor and Win Win, as well as a writer, credited on the script for »

Exclusive Interview With Rose McIver On Brightest Star

29 January 2014 8:49 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rose McIver is a young actress who is slowly putting a stranglehold on the television world. She stars on two of the hottest Sunday night programs for very different audiences. In Once Upon a Time’s third season, on a small hiatus but set to return on March 9th, McIver plays the iconic Tinker Bell. She also has a recurring role on Showtime’s Masters of Sex, where she portrays Vivian Scully. McIver’s performance as a traditional young woman trying to figure out her own sexual boundaries in a rigid society makes her one of the cable series’ most fascinating characters and has given the New Zealand native a wealth of acclaim.

It has been a long road for McIver, whose first role was in a television commercial at the tender age of two. At three, she garnered a small role as “Angel” in Jane Campion’s Oscar-winning drama The Piano, »

Exclusive Interview With Director Maggie Kiley On Brightest Star

28 January 2014 7:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Maggie Kiley never aspired to be a director, but she says a fluke offer to direct a short film a few years ago opened up a new part of her brain. The recipient of a Bfa from New York University, Kiley is already a seasoned actor on the stage and screen. She made such an impression on her professors – among them, actor Clark Gregg, best known as Agent Phil Coulson in The Avengers – that the Atlantic Theater Company asked her to join their ensemble before she even graduated.

As an actor, Kiley starred in We Own the Night for director James Gray and Andrew Jarecki’s thriller All Good Things, with Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst. She was also one of eight women selected from hundreds of applicants to be a part of AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women. The short film she made in that program, Some Boys Don’t Leave, »
