'Maze Runner' Interview with Director Wes Ball | Exclusive

16 December 2014 2:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There aren't many filmmakers who get to take a crack at a major young adult franchise with their first feature film, but director Wes Ball managed to do just that with The Maze Runner, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD December 16. Based on the popular novel trilogy by James Dashner, The Maze Runner is set in a mysterious and massive maze known as The Glade, where a number of young men find themselves inexplicably trapped, with no memory of how or why they were put there. Dylan O'Brien stars as Thomas, the latest addition to The Glade who may be the one to lead them out of the maze for good.

After working as a graphic artist for several years, Wes Ball makes his directorial debut with The Maze Runner, an ambitious project that managed to win over fans and critics alike, taking in over $330 million at the box office during its theatrical run. »

The Maze Runner review

10 October 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

With the Hunger Games franchise inching towards its close – albeit with the final book needlessly split into two films for sadly commercial reasons – the Young Adult movie throne will soon be vacant. Divergent had a so-so stab at the title earlier this year, with Shailene Woodley's charisma improving the sketchily explained narrative and sequels on the way.

But while the Veronica Roth adaptation was certain a cut above tried-and-failed Ya novel adaptations like Beautiful Creatures or The Mortal Instruments, it isn't the undisputed champion of the teen audience arena, just yet.

So could The Maze Runner become the 'next Twilight/Hunger Games/massive cash cow'? Well, it's a maybe.

In this dystopian (well, of course) tale, sixteen-year-old boy Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) awakes in an elevator, which rises into a grass clearing – surrounded by ominous towering walls. He's got no memory of whom he is or why he might have »

Get to know The Maze Runner's Will Poulter

17 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It may be something of a cliché to brand a talented young actor a rising star, but in Will Poulter’s case the label can be forgiven — he was presented with the Rising Star Award at this year’s BAFTAs, the big awards handed out by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Poulter first came to the public’s attention after making his big-screen debut at age 15 in the charming British film Son of Rambow, about two boys making a homemade follow-up to the original Rambo film, First Blood. This was followed byThe Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, before he went on to steal the show in Dexter Fletcher’s Wild Bill, and impress a wider North American audience with his very funny performance in last year’s We’re the Millers, co-starring Jennifer Aniston.

Review: 'Maze Runner' gives a strong young cast plenty of room to shine

15 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The rules of engagement have changed in the ongoing push-me/pull-you of tentpole filmmaking, especially when aiming at the oh-so-important young adult demographic. That is a very business-minded opening sentence for a review, but these days, when you're making a film like "The Maze Runner," it is a very business-minded endeavor. If you get one of these movies right, you buy yourself the room to make two or three or however many more. Casting is a huge part of that, as is the way you bait the hook for the larger franchise. Wes Ball's background is in animation and effects, and he certainly has an eye for composition. Thankfully, he doesn't just lean on visual flash in his debut feature, the adaptation of the first of James Dashner's four books, and his skills allow him to build a convincing world around his appealing cast without losing them in it completely. »

Domhnall Gleeson to join Leonardo DiCaprio & Tom Hardy in The Revenant

1 August 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Alejandro Iñárritu's Birdman starring Michael Keaton is looking fantastic, however I'm equally excited for his next project, the revenge western The Revenant. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy were previously cast in the Michael Punke adaptation, and Variety is reporting Star Wars: Episode VII's Domhnall Gleeson will join them in the upcoming film. The Revenant also stars Will Poulter (The Maze Runner, Son Of Rambow), and production on the film will »

Something To Live For Is Something To Die For In Haunting Glassland Teaser

8 July 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m not sure whether an indie thriller like Glassland will have any luck in capitalizing on actor Jack Reynor’s starring role in Transformers: Age of Extinction. The vast majority of destructo-porn addicts who sat through all three hours of Michael Bay’s latest didn’t in all likelihood leave the theater desperate to seek out Reynor’s other work. Though our critic Matt Donato claimed that the actor “makes us forget all about Shia Labeouf’s pissy Witwicky character,” there’s no use pretending Age of Extinction was in any way his show.

Still, Glassland‘s first teaser has just been released, highlighting both Reynor and star Toni Collette. And though there’s not much to go on from this look at the film, I’m liking what I see so far. Co-starring Michael Smiley and Will Poulter, the Gerard Barrett-written and directed film centers on a »

Will Poulter Goes Wild With DiCaprio In Period Revenger ‘The Revenant’

27 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rising star Will Poulter should ramp up his bankability as he prepares to join Leonardo DiCaprio in an adaptation of Michael Punke’s period novel The Revenant. This hard-edged and harrowing real life tale concerns a fur trader in the 1820s who is betrayed after a savage bear attack. Stranded in the Great American Wilderness with no tools or weapons, the trader naturally pursues payback. DiCaprio is a solid choice for central character Hugh Glass, though it’s unclear who Poulter will portray. The part of  Jim Bridger appears to fit the young actor, whose  encounter with Glass presumably informed the legendary path his life took to becoming “King Of The Mountain Men”. The movie’s tough credentials are cemented with the apparent involvement of Tom Hardy. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) will be heading out on the trail around Christmas, with Anonymous Content producing.

Poulter started out on Channel 4 »

Baftas 2014: Gravity hits the heights but 12 Years a Slave takes best film

17 February 2014 2:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

3D space disaster movie wins six awards at Royal Opera House, including best director and best British film

It was a contest between two wildly different films – a 3D space disaster movie and an unflinching portrayal of 19th-century American slavery – and on paper it was the former, Gravity, which emerged as the biggest winner at the 2014 Bafta ceremony.

It won six awards, including best director and best British film. But 12 Years a Slave unquestionably picked up the biggest prize, best film, with Chiwetel Ejiofor named as best actor.

In a year when no one film swept the board, American Hustle also came away with three prizes.

Alfonso Cuarón was named best director and said you would not know it from his accent but he considered himself a part of the British film industry. He has lived in London for 13 years and joked: "I make a very good case for curbing immigration. »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2007

4 February 2014 8:21 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 6 Feb 2014 - 06:08

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2007, and another 25 overlooked gems...

For some reason, the number three was a common factor in several blockbuster movies of 2007. The third film in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series (At World's End) dominated the box office, Spider-Man 3 marked Sam Raimi's last entry as director in the series, while Mike Myers went for a hat trick of hits with Shrek The Third.

I Am Legend was the third and most financially successful attempt to bring Richard Matheson's classic novel to the big screen, Rush Hour 3 marked Jackie Chan's last action pairing with Chris Tucker, while Zack Snyder's musky sword-swinger 300 was notable for having the number three in the title.

Iffy attempts at numerology aside, 2007 was also a superb for year for movies in general - particularly underappreciated ones, »

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – January 27th 2014

27 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

This week’s best new releases on all the Instant Watching platforms.

Spring Breakers (2013)

Harmony Korine’s critical darling from last year is likely to be talked about and discussed for a good long while yet. Holding up an uncomfortable mirror to our youth, Spring Breakers works on a lot of levels not only does it work as a surface level tale of four out of control girls on a debauched trip in Florida but it also works as a story about the spiritual death and rebirth of Generation Y and asks some important questions about how post war culture evolved into something where our youth think licking power tools in music videos is something to aspire to.

There is a scene fairly early on where the two most rebellious of our heroines sit in class discussing oral sex on paper as their tutor drones on about world war two, »

Sundance 2014: With tons of movies sold, the lack of a mega deal was no big deal

25 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

I can testify that when you go to a film festival, and someone inquires about how the movies were that year, the answer you end up giving — “Really terrific!” “Lousy!” “They were okay!” — is often dictated by exactly one movie. If you saw something that totally knocked you out, the sort of film that you think is going to get major play in the real world, and you’re already dusting off a place on your 10 Best list for it, then that one movie can determine your entire perception of the festival. That’s what happened to me last year »
