Home movie review: lots of places like it

19 March 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Science fiction with training wheels, fine for sucking the kiddies into geekery but with little appeal for grownup fans of animated genre adventure. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It may well be the nicest alien invasion ever, when the blobby Boov come to planet Earth in their adorable bubble spaceships. They’re hiding out from a nasty, spiky predator and they mean us no harm, but we are thoughtlessly and inconveniently occupying their new cities, so the entire human race gets evacuated — in an involuntary way — to Australia, to a new settlement that looks rather like Truman Burbank’s hometown of Seahaven. Pleasant on the surface, perhaps, but definitely with an undercurrent of creepy, even apart from the whole alien-invasion thing.

How do seven billion humans feel about this? »

Steve Martin signs on for Ang Lee's Iraq war drama

4 March 2015 9:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Steve Martin is joining the cast of director Ang Lee's war drama Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk.

Newcomer Joe Alwyn leads the film as a soldier whose unit is brought back to the Us temporarily after surviving an attack in Iraq.

The soldiers are given a celebration at a Dallas Cowboys football game, before being sent back into service in Iraq.

Martin has been cast as a slippery Hollywood producer who attempts to buy the film rights to Billy Lynn's (Alwyn) story, reports The Wrap.

Garrett Hedlund has already been cast as Lynn's drill instructor, while Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy will adapt Ben Fountain's novel for the screen.

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk will be Martin's first live-action film role since 2011's critically-panned bird-watching comedy The Big Year. »

Steve Martin Signs Up for Ang Lee's 'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk'

4 March 2015 7:32 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Later this year, we'll hear Steve Martin as the voice of the alien leader Captain Smek in the DreamWorks Animation film Home. Otherwise, it's been a few years since the actor appeared in a live-action film with The Big Year in 2011 being his last comedy appearance on the big screen. But that will change soon as Deadline reports Matin has taken a role in Ang Lee's next film, an adaptation of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, based on Ben Fountain's novel of the same name. Newcomver Joe Alwyn and Garrett Hedlund are already on board to star in the film about the heroic survivors of a battle in the Iraq War. More specifically, the story follows a 19-year old soldier whose squad survived a battle that was captured on embedded news cameras, making them instant heroes back home. So Lynn and his team get brought back to the United »
