Cannes: Myriad Pictures Boards Zosia Mamet, Scott Speedman’s ’Shadow Girl’

Cannes: Myriad Pictures Boards Zosia Mamet, Scott Speedman’s ’Shadow Girl’
Cannes — Myriad Pictures had boarded “Shadow Girl,” starring Zosia Mamet (“Girls”) and Scott Speedman (“Animal Kingdom”).

Presided by Kirk D’Amico, Myriad will introduce “Shadow Girl” to buyers at the Cannes Film Market which kicked off yesterday.

Targeting a still underserved Ya and adult female audience which has made a large hit of such titles as “Me Before You,” “Shadow Girl,” marks a move towards the mainstream for Claudia Myers who broke through to attention with “Fort Bliss” – a “solid, affecting drama,” Variety said.

Billed as a magical love story and from an original screenplay by Myers which also has coming of age elements, “Shadow Girl” stars Mamet as a girl, Holly, who has literally faded with the death of her mother until near invisible – until she meets Shane, a disgraced Mma champ, who can make her out. But Holly discovers she bears more responsibility than she imagined for Shane

Watch: Robin Williams is 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn' in First Trailer

Last year, Robin Williams had a mixed bag of film appearances that included the abysmal comedy The Big Wedding and the melodramatic historical drama Lee Daniels' The Butler. Now he's back on the big screen again this year with this silly comedy The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. Williams plays Henry, a guy who always seems to be pissed at everything, until he gets misinformation from a flustered doctor (Mila Kunis) that he has a brain aneurysm that will kill him in 90 minutes. As Henry tries to make amends with people he's hurt around the city, the doctor attempts to track him down to retract the diagnosis. Yep, silly. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Phil Alden Robinson's The Angriest Man in Brooklyn from Yahoo: The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams, The Sum of All Fears) and written by Daniel Taplitz (Chaos Theory,

DVD Review - Wreckage (2010)

Wreckage, 2010.

Directed by John Mallory Asher.

Starring Aaron Paul, Justin Allen, Scoot McNairy, Kelly Kruger and Mike Erwin.

Synopsis:

A group of teenagers find themselves stranded in a scrapyard after their car breaks down, where an escaped convict begins to hunt them one by one.

When I received the screener with the title emblazoned on its packaging reading Wreckage, I prayed to the Gods of Film that the word would not lead to some zemblanitous irony on the film’s part. Unfortunately, in many respects, it did and I found myself struggling to come to terms with exactly what I was watching; what the film’s aims and purposes were. The film had actually finished completion in 2010 and only recently secured distribution with Chelsea Films. All I can say to that is... little wonder.

The film is about four twenty-somethings - ex-soldier Jared (Mike Erwin, Chaos Theory), his fiancé Kate (Cameron Richardson,

10 Reasons To Love . . . Ryan Reynolds

So I have a list of five or so actors who are so charismatic, so effortlessly likeable, so charmingly cool, that I would watch any dross that they appear in. Sadly, most of those actors appear almost exclusively in dross but its always a pleasure regardless.

In my debut 10 Reasons To Love . . . article we covered my first cinematic man-crush – The Cuse. A man who’s been lucky enough (or clever enough) to land himself a bevy of interesting and varied roles. Well now we come to the second in my personal favourites and sadly it’s rather difficult to collect together 10 quality titles he’s been involved with, but I can safely say that if you’re willing to disband your pre-conceptions, throw out your regulating taste buds, and allow a little joy into your heart then you’ll find plenty to love in my top picks to represent the

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Eleven

Prom

Opens: April 29th 2011

Cast: Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang

Director: Joe Nussbaum

Summary: Portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite. For Nova Prescott, it’s a battle of wills as she finds herself drawn to the guy who gets in the way of her perfect prom. Others face all the insecurity and anticipation that surrounds one of high school’s most seminal events.

Analysis: Disney's attempt at creating the next "High School Musical" franchise for itself, this teen romantic comedy is a batch of clique cliches - the beauty queen, the rebel with better hair than anyone else in the film, the handsome yet dumb foreign exchange student, the 'so above it' geek who really wants to belong, and at least one or two 'fugly' girls.

It's all very "The Breakfast Club" meets "10 Things I Hate About

Red Dog Barks First In Berlin

Red Dog Barks First In Berlin
The new Australian film Red Dog will have its world premiere at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival, held February 10 to 21, having been selected to screen in competition as part of Generation 14plus.   For those familiar with the daring work of Australian filmmaker Kriv Stenders (The Illustrated Family Doctor, Blacktown, Boxing Day, Lucky Country), it came as a surprise to learn the director was overseeing the decidedly family friendly Red Dog.   Adapted by Daniel Taplitz (Chaos Theory) from the novel by Louis De Bernieres (Captain Corelli's Mandolin), Red Dog tells the story of a spirited kelpie who roamed the West Australian outback in the seventies and eighties and unites a mining community along the way.

Half-Speed Judge Judy Is Double-Awesome Judge Judy

If Jeff Goldblum has taught us nothing else (besides the Chaos Theory of water droplets), he’s at least taught us not to underestimate the automatic hilarity that comes with playing videos at half speed. That said, improving upon Judge Judy toilet disputes seems impossible — like trying to improve upon Citizen Kane Coca-Cola — but sure enough, here’s Judge Judy at half speed, and boy, do I judge it entertaining: (Thanks, Rebecca E!)

E3 2010: 3Ds Game Lineup

Nintendo announced quite a good number of titles for the 3Ds at their press conference, many of which were quite surprising.

One would expect that a new handheld would receive the standard treatment – a new Mario Kart, a new Mario platformer, etc. But the 3Ds seems to be venturing into new territory, which looks to be surprisingly close to the PSP’s – mainly thanks to third-party developers.

From Super Street Fighter IV 3D, to Saint’s Row: Drive By, and even a Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory remake, it looks like Nintendo’s new 3D handheld is accommodating the slightly older gamer a little more nicely.

Even though many games were announced at the press conference, even more titles surfaced throughout the day, many of which happen to be remakes of classic Nintendo 64 games.

Here’s the full list as it stands so far:

Nintendo 3Ds to Play 3D Games and Movies without 3D Glasses

After the keynote addresses of the big three gaming companies, I think the one that has everyone talking is the Nintendo 3Ds. It sounds like a piece of technology that’s too good to be true. Nintendo says it will play 3D movies without the need for glasses. Oh, and it can also take 3D pictures with the built-in camera. There are $3000 3DTVs shipping out right now and they require special glasses. Is it the small size of the 3Ds’ screen? Or are we looking at another pseudo-3D Virtual Boy catastrophe? Nintendo let journalists and for the most part, Kotaku and Joystiq seem to like it.

Nintendo has also announced that the system will play 3D movies from Walt Disney Pictures, DreamWorks, and Warner Bros. After the jump, you can check out a demo from Nintendo’s keynote address, pictures of the 3Ds, and the press release. I wish
