Sam Claflin to Replace Miles Teller in STX Thriller ‘Adrift’ (Exclusive)

23 May 2017 3:58 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley will no longer hit the high seas together, TheWrap has learned.

Teller has stepped away from the STX drama “Adrift,” which would have reunited him with frequent costar Woodley for Baltasar Kormákur’s hurricane thriller.

Teller dropped out two weeks ago over scheduling conflicts, multiple individuals familiar with the project told TheWrap. Actor Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games, “Me Before You”) is in close talks to replace him as Woodley’s co-star in the survival tale. »

Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh in ‘At Eternity’s Gate’: Julian Schnabel Gives Us An Exclusive First Look

23 May 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If anyone can show us something we haven’t seen before about Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, it’s Oscar-nominated painter-filmmaker Julian Schnabel, who announced at Cannes that he will direct “At Eternity’s Gate” starring Willem Dafoe (who also stars in Director’s Fortnight entry “The Florida Project”) as the world’s most acclaimed Post-Impressionist painter, who died at age 37 before he was recognized for his gifts.

“I’ve been working on it for a couple of years,” said Schnabel on the phone from Montauk. “It has to do with trying to make a work of art. By making a film about him, I might shed a little light on what it is to be doing what he’s doing, who he really was, and what his issues were, what somebody needed to do to do what he did, and what he’s not going to do.”

Amandla Stenberg: From ‘Hunger Games’ to ‘Everything, Everything’

20 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been over five years since audiences first fell in love with scene-stealer Amandla Stenberg in “The Hunger Games,” but the actress is officially ready for her own starring role. That’s because Stenberg’s new film “Everything, Everything” just released this weekend.

The film — based on the 2015 novel by Nicola Yoon — stars Stenberg as Maddy, a young woman who has been diagnosed with the genetic disorder Scid and is forced to spend her life indoors in a sterilized and controlled environment. But after falling in love with the neighbor boy (Nick Robinson, “Melissa & Joey), Maddy begins to question the veracity of her disease, only to discover her mother (Anika Noni Rose) may have some secrets of her own.

‘Everything, Everything’ Updates the Beautiful Dying Girl Genre With a Sincere Melodrama — Review

19 May 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Men like movies about war; teenage girls like movies about beautiful dying girls finding love. How else to explain the glut of stories about cancer-stricken teenagers, such as “The Fault In Our Stars,” “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” and that early-aughts soapy classic, “A Walk to Remember”? The genre may have traded in Mandy Moore’s squeaky clean appeal for a slightly edgier Shailene Woodley, but the beautiful dying girl remained resolute in her insistence that prince charming never pity her, even as the movie around her urged audiences to do just that.

Tom Hardy Is The New Venom!!!

19 May 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Even though the character was grossly mishandled in the god-awful Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures have been trying to get a spin-off for fan favourite villain Venom for years now. The Hunger Games director Gary Ross was eyed to take the helm in 2007, and while no real word has been given as to why the project fell, you have to believe the poor critical and fan reaction to Spider-Man 3 has to have something to do with it. The film was resurrected in 2013 as part of a shared universe stemming out The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but again, no dice. Now, Sony are hoping third time’s the charm with the announcement that Reuben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) will be serving as director for the movie that will be part of its own universe and not associated with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which the studio is co-producing with Marvel Studios.

‘Everything, Everything’ Director Stella Meghie: How She Became the Only Black Woman With a Wide-Release Movie in 2017

19 May 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

“Everything, Everything” director Stella Meghie, who made her debut with the Canadian production “Jean of the Joneses,” isn’t just being modest when she says she didn’t expect to direct a studio film. The numbers tell us as much: Most female filmmakers struggle to get a second film off the ground, and the number of black female filmmakers in the studio system is vanishingly small.

In fact, Meghie is just one of 16 female filmmakers to have a studio-backed film hitting theaters in 2017 (that includes studio speciality divisions). However, it’s not Meghie who got lucky; it’s MGM and Warner Bros., since she might be the only person who could have made this movie.

“That was the reason why I did the film,” said its star, Amandla Stenberg, who was 13 when she broke out as »

Review: "Everything, Everything"

19 May 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Chris Feil

It’s not summer without at least once piece of romantic counter-programming, and for the most part Everything, Everything is a cut above the last few years’ offerings. There is a surprising amount of imagination in this tale of teenage love, and more genuine feeling. Its sappier side is kept at a softer level throughout, more concerned with showing the intricacies of blossoming young love than pulling your emotional strings. The film is more organic and modest in its emotional beats, until it turns its back on its own strengths.

Newly eighteen Maddy (The Hunger Games’s Amandla Stenberg) has been homebound her whole life, suffering from Scid, a genetical disorder that makes her essentially allergic to the world at large »

Movie Review: Everything, Everything puts teen romance in a sterile bubble

18 May 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ah, young adult fiction, that fertile crescent of storytelling where any plot device or genre convention, no matter how hoary, can be given new life by the insertion of a misunderstood teenage dreamboat with soulful eyes. In the case of Warner Bros.’ new teen tearjerker Everything, Everything—based on the Ya novel by author Nicola Yoon—the inspiration is a weird one: It’s essentially a multiracial, digital-age update of the 1976 TV movie The Boy In The Plastic Bubble, with The Hunger Games and Mr. Robinson’s Amandla Stenberg in the John Travolta role and Jurassic World’s Nick Robinson as the (literally) untouchable boy next door.

Stenberg stars as Maddy Whittier, an 18-year-old girl who hasn’t left her immaculately clean, Scandinavian-furnished home in the suburbs of Los Angeles since she was only a few months old. Maddy suffers from a collection of symptoms known as severe combined ...

‘Everything, Everything’ Review: Girl in the Plastic Bubble Falls for Boy Next Door

18 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Everything, Everything” is an updated, gender-reversed and more engaging version of “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.” Hollywood loves stories of young pretty people with terminal illnesses. Think “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “The Fault in Our Stars,” “Dying Young,” “Love Story,” and many more. So it’s no surprise that Nicola Yoon’s 2015 Ya novel was adapted for the screen. The lead actors are attractive and charismatic and give nuanced performances. Unfortunately, the dialogue they are given to speak is often trite and too many plot strands are unconvincing. Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games”) brings an appealing openness to. »
