David Goyer has been signed to direct “Who Am I,” a remake of the 2014 German thriller of the same name.

Goyer, best known for his work on the “Dark Knight” trilogy, is producing through his Phantom Four company along with Kevin Turen and Langley Park’s Kevin McCormick.

Zac Efron: Joking His Way to Movie Stardom

28 May 2016 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A lot of young women — or former young women — may disagree with me, but for a while there Zac Efron came off as a poster boy for the following notion: that it’s possible to be too good-looking to be a movie star. In the “High School Musical” films, of course, he was all mussy-coiffed, aqua-blue-eyed charm — a wholesome hunk who knew how to dance, and when he wasn’t dancing knew how to micromanage his charisma so that it fell right on the cusp between dewy and sexy. He was a classic teen idol — he looked like Sean Cassidy with hair gel — and when you’re sitting on top of that world, surrounded by screaming fans, it always seems, at least within the entertainment industry, like you can conquer anything.

It was all but forgone that Efron would get a crack at movie stardom, and he did, but when »

Tumbledown movie review: letting go of the past

5 February 2016 9:44 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A portrait of grief that borrows the conventions of romantic comedies. There may not be a lot of passion here, but there is plenty of pleasant zing. I’m “biast” (pro): love Rebecca Hall

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Rebecca Hall is Hannah, widow of rock star Hunter Miles, who made “a single, nearly perfect album” of soulful acoustic folk before he died suddenly several years back. Jason Sudeikis is Andrew, a university professor who deems Hunter’s work “timeless” and wants to include the singer in the book he’s writing about tragic great American musicians. Hannah is reluctant to help Andrew with his research for lots of reasons: the most important one is the one she is unable to admit to herself, that she does not want to move on with her life. Does her finally agreeing »

The Choice (2016) – The Review

4 February 2016 3:28 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2016 is five weeks old, so the new model is rolling off the assembly line. You might think I’m referring to an automobile company like Ford or Lincoln. Well, we are dealing with a brand name, one associated with popular novels instead of cars. Stephen King is still king of the horror/suspense novels, John Grisham has the legal thrillers, and Nicholas Sparks is best known for the swoony, sweeping romance paperbacks that fill the spinner racks at airport gift shops and often protrude from the tops of canvas beach bags. His best sellers quickly grabbed the attention of the movie studios, and almost a dozen have been translated to the big screen (easy to see why since they don’t require costly CGI action set pieces or big name superstars since Sparks is the name that draws ’em in). Back to the assembly line reference, there’s been a »

Box Office: 5 Reasons Why 'Dirty Grandpa' Was No Match for 'The Revenant'

24 January 2016 12:50 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Forget it, Jake, it's January.

Like the title neighborhood in the movie "Chinatown," January at the box office is a dark and confusing place where nothing good ever happens.

That's how it played out this weekend, anyway, where the best that three new wide-release movies -- "Dirty Grandpa," "The Boy," and "The 5th Wave" -- could do was battle it out for fourth place with last week's flop "13 Hours" (pictured). And it was nearly a four-way tie, with the three new movies hovering around $11 million and "13 Hours" a tad behind with an estimated $9.8 million.

But even the hit holdover movies, including "The Revenant," "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and "Ride Along 2," all underperformed this weekend. "Revenant" came out on top, but with an estimated $16.0 million, well below the $20 to $25 million that analysts had predicted for the buzzed-about drama's third weekend of wide release.

Blame it on the weather (thanks, »
