‘Stronger’: Jake Gyllenhaal’s Moving Performance as a Bombing Victim Could Finally Mean an Oscar

12 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as Oscar voters rewarded Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro, and many others for roles that demanded body-shifting training or weight change, they also lean into performers who limit their mobility or twist themselves under duress. Perhaps the most infamous example is Daniel Day Lewis’s shoot-long stint in a wheelchair as cerebral palsy victim Christy Brown in “My Left Foot,” which earned Lewis his first Oscar and cost him two broken ribs.

Eddie Redmayne could barely articulate his dialogue as Als survivor Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything,” and took home the 2015 Oscar. Mental hardship counts, too: Tom Hanks won as a mentally disabled hero in “Forrest Gump” and Julianne Moore won as an early-onset Alzheimer’s victim in “Still Alice.”

Now, joining a rather weak Best Actor field so far, here’s Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, the 2013 Boston marathon survivor »

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Mark Gordon Company is producing the film, with photography set to begin next month in Boston. Collin Schiffli will direct the film. His 2014 movie “Animals” won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival.

Producers are Tom Butterfield, Mark Gordon and Allyson Seeger of Sunday Night. Sara Smith of Mark Gordon Company will be an executive producer.

Scodelario and Hutcherson will play the star-crossed lovers who share an eagerness to break from the confines of their lives that fuels their passion for each other and leads to an all-out struggle for their love against a backdrop of corporate espionage, revenge, and a long-standing feud between their families. Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari, who teamed on Marvel’s upcoming “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” wrote the screenplay. »

Kiefer Sutherland Returns in New Flatliners TV Trailer

12 September 2017 5:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures has released a brand new TV spot for their highly-anticipated Flatliners remake, which gives us our first glimpse at Kiefer Sutherland. The actor revealed in an interview last summer that this new project is actually a sequel, and that he is reprising his role from the original as Nelson Wright, although he hinted that his character may have changed his name. We only see him for a brief moment, and we don't hear him speak any lines, so it still remains to be seen how large a role he plays in this project.

The TV spot debuted on the Sony Pictures Canada YouTube channel, with the Kiefer Sutherland cameo coming literally in the first second of the video. We can see that he's sporting all-white hair and glasses, wearing a lab coat under his suit, with some brain x-rays seen in the background. While we only see him for a second, »

Liam Neeson Gets Into Trouble on a Train in Trailer for 'The Commuter'

12 September 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What do you want from me?!" Lionsgate has revealed the first official trailer for a new action-thriller train movie starring Liam Neeson, titled The Commuter. From the same director of Non-Stop (the airplane movie) and The Shallows, this movie is basically Unstoppable (the train movie) meets Non-Stop (or even Source Code). Neeson plays an insurance salesman who gets mixed up in a criminal conspiracy on his daily commute home via train. Vera Farmiga, a "mysterious stranger", sits with him for a chat and things get very interesting, very quick. The cast includes Patrick Wilson, Killian Scott, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Florence Pugh, and Damson Idris. I quite like the setup for this, the way Farmiga talks to him and tells him what to do very nonchalantly, I just hope it lives up to the full potential. Here's the first official trailer for Jaume Collet-Serra's The Commuter, direct »

Flatliners Trailer #2 Makes Death Look Like a Blast

7 September 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just like this group of medical students in this upcoming thriller, the Flatliners franchise has been brought back from the dead with a new movie hitting theaters later this month. To get fans ready for this "revival" that continues the story from the original 1990 movie, Sony Pictures has dropped a new trailer, that shows how these medical students' lives change drastically after an experiment where they're brought back from the dead. The trailer also reveals the sequel's new tagline, "You haven't lived until you've died."

In Flatliners, five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on »

Flatliners Remake Character Posters Stare Death in the Face

30 August 2017 5:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just under one month left until Sony Pictures' Flatliners remake hits theaters, the studio has released four new character posters that shows completely different sides to the main characters. The posters feature Ellen Page's Courtney, Diego Luna's Ray, Nina Dobrev's Marlo and Kiersey Clemons' Sophia. While each of these characters has a seemingly normal expression, these one-sheets literally show another side of them, and it's clear they're truly terrified.

The posters surfaced on the Flatliners Twitter earlier today, although it remains uncertain if we'll get any more footage between now and the September 29 release date. The first Flatliners trailer didn't debut until mid-June, and with the release just a few weeks away, hopefully there will be more footage for fans to explore, before this reboot hits theaters. For fans of the original movie, there will be a familiar face involved, although he isn't seen on any of these posters. »

The directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade

30 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the directors who can take cinema forward over the next decade…

There’s a cinematic crossroads on the horizon. As the market gets swallowed up by a core consumer taste leaning toward spandex and radioactive arachnid bites, there’s a need for modern thinking, engaging directors to offer something different. After all, there’s only so long the Marvel cow can be milked. It will dry out. It’s the way of things. Studios now bank on billion dollar returns. These seem safe bets now, but for how long? Ultimately it will become a huge gamble.

We’re still seeing interesting film-makers doing their best to re-invigorate or subvert genres. Edgar Wright just smashed it out of the park with Baby Driver. There was a degree of hyperbole about marking him as a cinematic master (until he improves his depiction of women in films, that may allude »

What Warcraft 2 Will Be About If Duncan Jones Returns to Direct

21 June 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warcraft was not the movie that many wanted it to be, at least if the critics are to be believed. And it certainly wasn't quite what Legendary Pictures was hoping for, either. The movie wasn't exactly a major blockbuster hit (at least domestically) that was meant to launch a big franchise, which was the intention. But director Duncan Jones is still holding out hope for Warcraft 2, and now he has shared some story details for his vision, should the movie ever happen.

Flickering Myth brings us the story details, which were revealed by Duncan Jones after a recent screening. The director explains that, should he get to do Warcraft 2, it would follow Durotan's son in his adolescent years. Here's what he had to say about it.

"This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet. So, to me, the idea over the course of three films would be for Thrall to fulfill that vision of Durotan to create a new homeland for the Orcs. So, it would be the adolescent years of that baby, and anyone who does know their Warcraft stories would know it's very much a Spartacus story that goes on with that character. I would basically follow that through. And with the human side of it, which is a little less clear of how that would follow, but basically, there is an aftermath to this film which would need to be completed. And on the Orc side you're very much following that baby, Go'el, known as Thrall in the universe, and how he eventually creates the Orc homeland."

Say what you will about Warcraft, but it certainly sounds like Duncan Jones has quite the vision for this trilogy. Interestingly enough, Jones has a pretty damn good track record outside of Warcraft, with Moon and Source Code doing rather well with fans of sci-fi, if not massive commercial smashes. His next movie, Mute, is set to debut later this year on Netflix and, according to the director, will cap the trilogy that includes Moon and Source Code. All of that to say, he would probably learn some lessons from what went wrong with Warcraft and do some serious course correction with Warcraft 2. But the ball is in Universal's court at this point.

Warcraft, despite doing very poorly with critics, wound up being the highest-grossing video game movie of all time. Even though the movie only made $47 million domestically, which probably is less than the studio hoped it would make opening weekend, the movie grossed $433.6 million worldwide. If the movie hadn't cost $160 million to make, Warcraft 2 probably would have been given the green light already. Though, looking at a movie like Pacific Rim, which made $411 million worldwide against a $190 million budget, which is getting a sequel next year with Pacific Rim: Uprising, Warcraft 2 doesn't seem totally out of the question. If Universal pulls the trigger, Duncan Jones seems to be ready and waiting. »

Warcraft” director Duncan Jones would love to direct a sequel to his 2016 film, but the filmmaker apparently doesn’t expect Legendary and Universal to greenlight the project. That didn’t stop him, however, from telling an audience at a “Warcraft” screening on Monday night in London where he would take the story. Here’s Duncan’s vision for a sequel (and beyond), as reported by Flickering Myth:

“This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet.

Watch the First 'Happy Death Day' Trailer, a Horror Twist on 'Groundhog Day'

15 June 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Groundhog Day popularized the idea of a character (Bill Murray) forced to relive the same day over and over again. The movie was very funny, but also sweet, poignant and romantic.  Ever since then, filmmakers have been drawn irresistibly to the tantalizing premise, adding their own distinctive spins, as in the terrific Run Lola Run, Timecrimes, Source Code, Edge of Tomorrow and this year's Before I Fall. The horror genre has been well-represented as well, with titles like Camp Slaughter, Triangle and Haunter. Now a new approach to the premise is on its way. Happy Death Day starts with a young woman waking up in a college dorm room with no memory of how she got there. Soon enough, however, she discovers that her life is in danger if she can't solve a horrible...

Flatliners Remake Is Ready for Reshoots

3 June 2017 8:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, Sony Pictures made a numberof changes to their upcoming release schedule, including a shift of their Flatliners remake release date, pushing it from the summer slot of August 18 to September 29. As it turns out, there was a good reason for that shift, with director Niels Arden Oplev assembling his cast once again for reshoots, which will take place in Toronto next month. If the studio would have kept the old release date, it would have been cutting it too close for comfort.

Iatse 873, the local Toronto chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees union, revealed on their website that Flatliners reshoots have been scheduled in Toronto for eight days, spanning July 24 to August 1. If Sony would have kept the August 18 release intact, the production would have certainly been rushing to get this new footage into the movie in just a few short weeks. Still, even with the release date delay, »
