'No Escape' Interview with the Dowdle Brothers | Exclusive

28 August 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

No Escape is an insane, no holds barred thrill ride that is certainly dividing audiences as we enter the final box office weekend of the summer. American businessman Jack Dwyer, wife Annie and their two young daughters arrive in Southeast Asia to begin a new life. As his company plans to improve the region's water quality, the family quickly learns that they're right in the middle of a political uprising. Armed rebels attack the hotel where they're staying, ordered to kill any foreigners that they encounter. Amid utter chaos, Jack must find a way to save himself and his loved ones from the violence erupting all around them.

On the surface, No Escape plays as tense action-thriller. Owen Wilson stars as the failed&#160entrepreneur&#160who relocates with his wife (Lake Bell) and their two young daughters to Southeast Asia&#160after&#160begrudgingly accepting a middle management job.&#160What unfolds is a »

No Escape | Review

24 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

American in Peril: Dowdle Bros. Play on Base Fears with Survival Drama

It’s unfortunate so many superficial elements are working against the objective consideration of No Escape, beginning with its potentially problematic casting of an unwavering comic star as the lead in what promises to be a pulse-pounding thriller. Add to this a flurry of uneasy marketing elements, including dreadfully cheesy poster art, corny taglines, borrowing a title from a likeable 90’s sci-fi flick starring Ray Liotta, and the potential of this latest effort from the Dowdle Bros. (Quarantine; As Above, So Below) promises the making of an undeniable turkey.

Despite all of these unfavorable buzz-killing aspects, the film manages to be an unfathomable rarity in that it manages to overcome all of these red-flag detractions as an uncomfortably tense survival thriller. Though not without a certain amount of quibbling in reference to its sometimes problematic ‘truths’, such as »

Film Review: ‘No Escape’

24 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If J.A. Bayona’s survival epic “The Impossible” seemed a bit callous in suggesting that the chief victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami were those well-to-do Westerners who chose the wrong week for a Thai holiday, it still looks like a model of human compassion and ethnic sensitivity next to “No Escape.” This latest thriller from director/co-writer John Erick Dowdle (“Devil,” “As Above, So Below”) is a technically accomplished, morally rank slab of cultural exploitation about an American family caught up in a violent uprising in an anonymous Southeast Asian country — one whose dark-skinned natives are on hand to kill and be killed, but who could otherwise scarcely be of less dramatic concern or interest to those behind the camera. Grittily propulsive filmmaking and solid performances from Owen Wilson and Lake Bell aside, there’s no escaping the movie’s hand-wringing manipulations and pandering sense of privilege — which might, »

No Escape movie review: start the revolution without them

24 August 2015 6:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Enjoyably intense, if you can get past the cultural narcissism that Western corporate colonialism only matters when it impacts a nice white American family. I’m “biast” (pro): like Owen Wilson and Lake Bell

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

If you took No Escape for a light action movie, something like a flick in which Liam Neeson would beat up villainous cartoon foreigners in a exotic land of generous film-production tax credits, you are forgiven. It’s certainly the way the film has been marketed. Plus it stars Owen Wilson and Lake Bell, comic actors known for lighthearted snark and offhand insouciance. I figured Wilson was making a preemptive bid for aging into Gray Action Hero; it seems an unlikely move for him, but they are the new hotness, after all; see: Neeson. Or maybe Pierce Brosnan, whom we are also promised here, »

No Escape Review

23 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Part of the escapist fun of horror movies is how they can employ death as the ultimate equalizer. Though billed as an action thriller, No Escape presents a disturbing “What If” scenario in which defining social constructs suddenly mean nothing. Instead of egalitarian xenomorphs relentlessly tearing through any and all humans they encounter, No Escape’s threat is something more tangibly upsetting to Western audiences: a situation where your income, race, nationality, or parenthood don’t keep you safe from violence. It’s a pointed premise that No Escape does almost nothing with.

For the first 20 minutes, all is perfectly wrong with No Escape’s blending of garden-variety xenophobia with the paranoid fear that society could unravel in a heartbeat. Devil and As Above, So Below director John Erick Dowdle (who co-writes No Escape with brother Drew) puts his genre chops to terrific use in the opening sequence, an icy »

M. Night Shyamalan Talks The Visit – Comic-Con (Video)

M. Night Shyamalan returns to his roots with the terrifying story of a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip called The Visit, and in true M. Night form, things don’t necessarily go as planned. Last week, I got the chance to sit down with Shymalan in a small round table discussion about working outside of the film system. Check it out below.

A single mother sends her two young children to visit their grandparents on a remote Pennsylvania farm for a week-long trip, but the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in deeply disturbing activity, and the youngsters’ chances of getting back home look less and less likely with every minute that passes.

Charlie Clouser’s Soundtrack For Wayward Pines Out On July 17

1 July 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In what’s become the best, and craziest, show this summer, Fox’s Wayward Pines has become must-see TV.

The intense episodes play out more like a movie and the soundtrack is haunting and other-worldly.

Lakeshore Records has announced it will release the Wayward Pines – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on July 17 and on CD July 24, 2015.  The album features the show’s original score by Charlie Clouser (Saw, Numb3rs).

“The main direction I received was that the score should help with the feeling that ‘something is not right’ in the town of Wayward Pines,” said Clouser. “For a while, we don’t know if Matt Dillon’s character is hallucinating, or maybe still in a coma and just dreaming, so the score needed to lean toward a ‘malfunctioning’ feel – that meant using sounds that are a little ‘out of whack’. As the series progresses, the score starts to get more and »

You sit comfortably at home and watch the headlines roll in from abroad, showing violent clashes in some distant part of the world, as the populace rises up against those in power. Then you turn it off, adjust the air conditioning, and get ready for a rerun of "The Big Bang Theory."

M. Night Shyamalan's New Horror Movie Actually Looks Terrifying—Watch the Creepy Trailer Now!

27 April 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It might be way too soon to say this but we're feeling optimistic so what the hell: welcome back, M. Night Shyamalan! The trailer for his latest film, The Visit, was posted online late last week, and not only is Shyamalan returning to his horror film roots, but it looks like he's doing it with a good movie. Finally!

First Poster Revealed for M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit

21 April 2015 1:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From Stephen King's chilling 1985 short story, Gramma, and its respective onscreen adaptations—Blumhouse's 2014 film, Mercy, and the 1986 episode of The New Twilight Zone—to R.L. Stine's Don't Ever Get Sick at Granny's and beyond, grandmothers have been the source of unsuspecting scares, and in September, we'll see M. Night Shyamalan’s take on what can go wrong at grandma's house with The Visit. The upcoming film from the director of Signs and The Sixth Sense is teased in a new, homemade horror poster.

A Blumhouse Productions film from Universal Pictures, M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit is slated for a September 11th release. A somewhat secretive movie that Shyamalan self-financed, wrote and directed, The Visit was filmed on and near his Pennsylvania property without any big studio involvement.

After shooting commenced, Shyamalan made a deal with Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions, which last summer signed a 10-year extension »

Stranger Than Science-Fiction: Steven Shainberg Senses the “Rupture”

2 April 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Before 50 Shades of Grey was made fashionable by mainstream auds, Secretary was a sizzler cubicle space title that made Steven Shainberg a sought after indie helmer. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Rupture will be his comeback of sorts, as he hasn’t lensed a film in almost a decade. To be fair, he did produced some projects, including Our Brand is Crisis for his docu-filmmaker wife Rachel Boynton, but his highly imaginative Fur was completely maimed during its theatrical run. Producer Andrew Lazar who broke out with 1996′s Bound (worthy pair in his filmography include Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and the underrated 2009 comedy, I Love You Phillip Morris) and recently broke the bank with American Sniper is producing the project along with Christina Weiss Lurie (frequent Sundance accepted docu-producer), Ambi’s Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi (The Humbling, James Franco’s currently being filmed In Dubious Battle »
