A new TV spot for Paper Towns is here! Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff star in the adaptation of John Green's novel, and it already looks every bit as great as The Fault in Our Stars. Wolff plays Quentin, who has lived across the street from Margo (Delevingne) for years before she pays any attention to him. When she finally does, it's to involve him in a revenge plot against her cheating ex. Just when things are looking up for Quentin, Margo disappears into thin air, and it's up to him to follow the clues to find her. It's vaguely reminiscent of the 2005 Joseph Gordon-Levitt film Brick, but with less of a noir feel and more of Mikky Ekko's "Smile." Pictures from the movie are sweet, but the trailers provide a much better look at the whole cast. Take a look at the new spot below, and check »
This won’t come as much of a surprise, but it has been announced that 2017’s Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to shoot at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and will presumably go into production once Gareth Edwards finishes up with the first standalone spin-off movie, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.
The announcement was made by UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who said: “This investment by Lucasfilm is a huge vote of confidence in all elements of movie-making in Britain – from the visual effects designers to the lighting technicians and from the carpenters to the costume designers… We are committed to backing this sector and the decision by Lucasfilm to continue to make the UK the home of Star Wars production is why we are right to believe that Britain is the best place in the world for the creative industries.”

Director Rian Johnson has worked with cinematographer Steve Yedlin on three features: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, and Looper. Now, Yedlin is making the jump to lightspeed with Johnson: he’ll serve as the Star Wars: Episode VIII cinematographer.

For writer/director Alex Garland and his movie “Ex Machina,” things are going about as well as one could have ever hoped, particularly for someone who’s taken on such complex subject matter for his directorial debut. The sci-fi film has been very well-received by critics (read our own enthusiastic review), and though it doesn’t hit theaters nationwide until this Friday, it’s had considerable box office success in its limited release thus far. Even better? Garland’s film has also won the heart of filmmaker Rian Johnson, the man behind "Brick" and "Looper," and who will be writing and directing “Star Wars: Episode VIII.” Johnson joined Alex Garland, after a screening of “Ex Machina” at the Arclight Hollywood last Saturday, for a special Q&A. The director seemed genuinely blown away by the film, which he compared favorably to such films as “Sleuth” and Sidney Lumet’s “Deathtrap. »

A few days ago at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, we got to sit down with Oscar Isaac, the charismatic star of "Inside Llewyn Davis" and last year's amazing (and amazingly under-seen) "A Most Violent Year." We were there to chat about his new movie, the deeply brilliant sci-fi film "Ex Machina," wherein he plays a mad scientist and tech billionaire who recruits an underling (played by Domhnall Gleeson) to test out some cutting edge new artificial intelligence and things go awry. It's awesome and we'll be bringing you lots more from the movie (and our interview with Isaac) in the weeks ahead.
But while we were chatting, I couldn't help but bring up the fact that he will soon be seen in a little art house movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," directed by some guy named J.J. Abrams. So I quizzed him »

The final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy isn't set to hit theaters until 2019, but that hasn't stopped Latino Review from doing some digging and coming up with the name of a potential director for it. According to them, J.J. Abrams is looking likely to return to helm Star Wars Episode IX after Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) handles the middle instalment, which is due for release in 2017. Apparently Disney/LucasFilm are very pleased with what Abrams delivered with The Force Awakens, and despite rumors of behind-the-scenes disagreements, it seems he's the man they want in charge of Episode IX. Of course, we'll have to take this as a rumor too for now, and there is a lot that can change before cameras start rolling on this project, but we'll keep you posted if we get any updates. »

We recently heard that Daniel London would appear in the Minority Report series, reprising his role from the film as Wally the caretaker for the TV series set ten years after Tom Cruise brought the whole PreCrime system crashing down.
Now, we know who the two lead characters will be played by. They look a bit like this…
The lead role has long been listed as Detective Lara Vega, who we now know will be played by Meagan Good of Think Like A Man, Anchorman 2 and Brick. Her character is a detective who’s ‘not afraid to break a few rules.’ The action of the series will see her helping a former Precog Dash, who still needs help reintegrating into society ten years after the events of film. »

• Gillian Anderson on therapy, rebellion and ‘being weird’
Thank you everybody for joining me this afternoon - thanks for all the questions, and for making me think, and have a great day!
The conversation is in process. And the result ultimately is up to Fox.
I saw Streetcar at the Young Vic in July and later how they chose to present it live-to-tape when shown in cinemas via Nt Live, so I feel now I’ve seen three unique iterations of this production. I assumed the decision to go with a wide static frame and the long takes to compliment and keep »

Monster films seem to be having a nice little comeback. We seem to be venturing away from the “Grindhouse” homage films, the torture porn films and the other tropes the genre got stuck in. A film that is on my radar is Dark Was The Night, which was adapted from a screenplay that was on The Blacklist a few years back. We just got word that we shouldn’t have to wait too long to see this flick starring Kevin Durand (The Strain) and Lukas Haas (Lady in White, Inception, Brick). Read below for the official word. We’ve also included a trailer that was posted last year for the film.
From the Press Release
Image Entertainment, an Rlj Entertainment (Nasdaq: Rlje) brand, has acquired the North American distribution rights for Caliber Media’s Dark Was The Night, directed by Jack Heller (Enter Nowhere), after the film’s premiere at »
