Mandy Moore Shows Off 'The First Milo' in Her Life: See the Adorable Throwback Pic!
Move over, Milo Ventimiglia!

Mandy Moore introduced the world to the original Milo in her life by sharing an adorable flashback photo on Friday. In the vintage snap, a young Moore is pictured with a huge grin on her face, lying on the ground and cuddling an orange cat.

"Me and the first Milo in my life," she captioned the pic, noting that the furry feline was "named after the movie Milo and Otis, duh." Moore hashtagged the post with "#CatsForLife" for good measure.

Drive Productions launches in La, Vancouver

  • ScreenDaily
Producers Kyle Mann and Michael Risley have launched development, production and financing company Drive Productions focused on elevated genre.

Mann and Risley are based in Los Angeles and Vancouver and say they have raised closed to $2m for development funds.

“The quality of the script is paramount, however there has been a dangerous decline in development financing for projects with unforeseen potential,” said Mann, whose latest comedy Teen Lust (pictured) premieres in Toronto.

“Drive is looking to invest in innovative pitches, books and scripts and is seeking to build relationships with distributors and talent agencies in order to help fill the development shortfall in the marketplace.”

The development slate includes college-set comedy The Arrangement, dark comedy TV series Blackcomb, thriller Beyond The Stars and WWII thriller Undaunted.

The partners are in pre-production on psychological thrillers Backcountry and The Estate.

Mann’s credits include Wrecked. Risley produced Toronto 2011 selection Revolution #9, among others.

Review: ‘Detour’ Finds Its Way

The critical success of 2010′s Buried didn’t exactly cause a wave of claustrophobic copycats, but a few similarly structured films found their way into production in the past few years. Wrecked saw Adrien Brody trapped in his car after an accident, and Stephen Dorff was stuffed in a trunk (hurray!) for Brake. All three films, for better or worse, had storylines “outside” the single location (car, coffin) that offered additional narrative momentum beyond a simple survival story. Director/co-writer William Dickerson‘s feature debut, Detour, forgoes that additional layer to focus almost exclusively on one man trapped in a confined space and desperate to escape. Is that enough to keep viewers’ attention for ninety minutes? Yes. And no. And yes. Jackson (Neil Hopkins) awakens at the wheel of his car with the engine stalled and the airbag deployed. It’s pitch black outside his windows, but what he mistakes at first for nightfall is in fact

‘Brake’ Trailer – Stephen Dorff Gets Trapped In a Trunk

  • The Film Stage
Perhaps it’s inspiration, maybe some national, unconscious fear sparked it off, but I can’t for the life of me determine why there’s been this glut of “one actor in a tight space” movies for the past couple of years — be it 127 Hours, Buried, or the Adrien Brody vehicle Wrecked. The latest in this line is Gabe TorresBrake, which features Stephen Dorff as a Secret Service agent who gets himself stuck in the trunk of a car, all as the President is under attack from… someone. I don’t entirely know, since the trailer from Apple is nigh incomprehensible, with bizarre editing, poorly-chosen snatches of dialogue, and hints of a premise that’s far more complicated than necessary. Poor Dorff.

Watch the trailer below:

Synopsis: Jeremy Reins (Stephen Dorff) is about to have a very bad day. He wakes up in total darkness, confused and disoriented. The

Oscar Shock: 5 Surprise Best Actors (And What Happened Next)

With the Academy Awards now just a week away, large doses of scrutiny are being shoved down the collective throats of the twinkling stars standing in line and hoping for their very own statuette.

Odds are that when the nominations are announced every year, there will be at least one somewhat surprising contender, whether he/she be an unknown, or simply dwells in an artistically shunned corner of the film world…no names mentioned, Jonah.

What is more of a startling occurrence is when said unfancied also-ran is announced as the victor, with their Celebrity Square suddenly expanding, and their face contorted with disbelief and unguarded astonishment in front of millions of amazed viewers.

But just how often is the wild card winner the champion of the future? Is the bookie-breaking hero of the night getting the ultimate kick start into superstardom and legend, an easily carried poisoned chalice, or

The Grey and Fighting Till the End: A Movie Review

Director: Joe Carnahan.

Writers: Joe Carnahan and Ian Mackenzie Jeffers.

Irish Catholic stubborness or that "never say die" attitude is one of the themes in Joe Carnahan and Ian Mackenzie Jeffers' The Grey. The protagonist, John (Liam Neeson), repeats one of his father's favourite poems to make this theme apparent: "[o]nce more into the fray./ Into the greatest fight I’ll ever know./ Live and die on this day./ Live and die on this day." Besides sounding very much like King Henry's Harfleur speech in Henry V, this short poem gives John the heart to keep pushing in difficult situations, while all his comrades fall by the wayside. Do these lines get him through a plane crash, blizzard and circling wolves? Fans of thrillers are encouraged to see this movie to find out.

John is a hunter and assigned to a group of roughnecks in the inhospitable Alaskan climate.

Bees! Not the Bees! 'Buried' and 'Wrecked' Become 'Brake' in New Trailer

I couldn't help but laugh at the trailer for Brake from director Gabe Torres and starring Stephen Dorff. It may end up being a perfectly fine film, but the lack of originality here is alarming, at least based on the newly released trailer. However, before we get to that first let me offer the synopsis: Jeremy Reins (Dorff) is about to have a very bad day. He wakes up in total darkness, confused and disoriented. The only light comes from the blood-red digital numbers ticking away above his head. Jeremy quickly realizes he's in trouble. It's hard to breath. He can barely move. And no one will answer his cries for help. Then, he hears the sound of an engine and it all becomes clear...he's trapped in the trunk of a moving car. As his captors reveal themselves and their motives, Jeremy realizes he won't be set free until

Movie News After Dark: Battlestar Animated, Avengers Overload, Steve Spielberg and Siri: The Horror Movie

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column desperate in its search for the insanely cool links of the day. It will also take movie related news, things about Community and Doctor Who, as well as, on occasion, updates on The Dark Knight Rises. Although after last night’s entry, it’s not sure there is any Tdkr news left to report. We begin tonight with some incredibly cool animated work from an artist named Otis Frampton. On his Deviant Art page, found via Popped Culture, he envisions what a Battlestar Galactica animated series would look like. I would watch this show, and not just because I’m a die hard BSG fan, either. The Smoking Jacket presents us with Stuff You Should Know: Zombies, an article about zombies and all the things they do.

Mff 2011, Day 4: Hollywood Heavy Fare

When I landed at the theatre around noon, only Wrecked by Michael Greenspan had seats left. Adrien Brody finds himself a victim of a car crash in a dark, foreboding jungle. I felt it was too contrived, did not have enough punch, enough drama, enough, well, Deliverance.

The film ended quickly enough letting me attend a discussion on Independent Cinema. Speakers: Ian Bernie, Aijaz Khan, Sunil Doshi and Madhu Mantena moderated by Meenakshi Shedde. Sunil Doshi turned out to be the best speaker, giving out advice from the Pov of a solid, experienced businessman.

Walked into the theatre that was to play Girish Kasaravalli’s Ghatashraddha. They were testing the DVD. Left immediately. If it was going to be a blown up DVD and not the original print, it did not make much sense; I can catch the film on DVD anytime. The neighboring screen had John Stockwell’s The

DVD Playhouse--September 2011

DVD Playhouse—September 2011

By Allen Gardner

In A Better World (Sony) Winner of last year’s Best Foreign Film Oscar, this Danish export looks at two fractured families and the effect that the adult world dysfunction has on their two sons, who form an immediate and potentially deadly bond. Director Susanne Bier delivers another powerful work that maintains its drive during the films’ first 2/3, then falters somewhat during the last act. Still, well-worth seeing, and beautifully made. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Deleted scenes; Commentary by Bier and editor Pernille Bech Christensen; Interview with Bier. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.

X-men First Class (20th Century Fox) “Origins” film set in the early 1960s, traces the beginnings of Magento and Professor X (played ably here by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy), and how the once-close friends and colleagues became bitter enemies. First half is slam-bang entertainment at its stylish best,

Wrecked and Meandering Characters: A Movie Review

Director: Michael Greenspan.

Writer: Christopher Dodd.

Wrecked is a film that had a one weekend premiere in April. Now, the film has moved onto DVD and Blu-Ray (Aug. 30th), making this, basically, a straight-to-dvd release. The film stars Adrien Brody, alone and in the wilderness. Meanwhile, a search party is looking for his whereabouts, as "the man (Brody)" begins to recover from a case of amnesia. Sparse in script, Wrecked is more of an experiment than anything else. Unfortunately this experiment was a failure, due to the film's pacing issues and lack of direction, or focus.

The plot can be broken down into a few words or plot elements: car crash, cougar, and rescue. That is the heart of the film, which drags itself out for far too long. To expand, the man awakens in a wrecked car to find himself trapped in his spot. He cannot wiggle his knee out from under the dashboard.

Wrecked

There is a segment in the old B-movie Lost Continent, as seen by the Mystery Science Theater robots, where the story disappears and the audience is subjected to a good thirty minutes of nothing but mountain climbing. It's so mind-numbingly dull and repetitive that by the end of it the robots can only whisper to each other, “...mountain climbing.”

Take that, make it horizontal, stick in Adrien Brody, and you've got Wrecked. Never have I spent so long watching one man crawl around in circles. I would have cheered if he'd stood up and walked, broken leg or not, because at least then we'd have a new camera angle.
