For the last few year, music collective Fall On Your Sword has been building up an impressive resumé of film scoring gigs. The group counts "Another Earth," "Nobody Walks," "28 Hotel Rooms" and "Lola Versus" among their credits, and the Tribeca Film Festival presents another movie this year with their distinctive work on it. From writer/director Ryan Piers Williams, "X/Y" brings together an ensemble including America Ferrera, Melonie Diaz, Amber Tamblyn, Common, Dree Hemingway and more to tell the story of four friends living in New York and their interactions as they search for a sense of balance. This exclusive track from Fall On Your Sword,"Alive, Safe And Happy" is both rollicking and uneasy, pulsating and unnerving, likely capturing the journey of these characters as they navigate their lives and each other. "X/Y" premieres on Saturday, April 19th at Bmcc Tribeca Pac. Listen below. »

Heavy duty stuff here, bro. But then again, this is the guy who did “Another Earth,” so if you’re a fan of that type of indie sci-fi/artsy type of filmmaking, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like his latest, “I Origins,” too. It even has Brit Marling in the cast, though it looks like a pretty small role. The only problem I can see with this movie? Steven Yeun of “The Walking Dead” fame is barely in it. I mean, he doesn’t even shoot or stab zombies in the eyes. What a gyp. Anyways, check out the first trailer for “I Origins” below, including a poster and some images from the movie. I Origins follows a molecular biologist whose study of the human eye points to evidence with far reaching implications about our scientific and spiritual beliefs. Starring Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergés-Frisbey, Steven Yeun, »
One of the surprises in the cinema world in 2011 was the film Another Earth, which brought screenwriters Brit Marling and Mike Cahill, who starred and directed respectively, to the attention of film fans. Many were intrigued to learn that Cahill had begun work on a new project, the first one from him since 2011. Titled I Origins, Cahill takes on both directing and screenwriting duties alone this time around, working with a cast that includes Brit Marling, Michael Pitt, Steven Yeun, William Mapother, and Archie Panjabi. The first trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

The debate between religion and science has been a long-standing one to say the least, and now director Mike Cahill ("Another Earth") brings a suspenseful twist to the conflict in his romantic mystery "I Origins." The film, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, stars Michael Pitt, Brit Marling and Astrid Berges-Frisbey. "I Originis" tells the story of Ian Gray (Pitt), a scientist whose aversion to religious beliefs is rooted in his need for scientific proof, until he meets the beautiful and spiritual Sofi (Berges-Frisbey), who believes the two of them may have known each other in a past life. The trailer gives a generous idea as to what's in store for the audience, featuring Ian as he encounters and ultimately loses Sofi only to discover someone whose eyes are identical to hers, an unbelievable rarity that leads him on a cross-cultural journey to find her.

I Origins was one of my very favorite movies at Sundance this year, and I am really excited that the trailer is out now so you can get a taste of the movie’s awesomeness. So it’s kind of weird that I am going to say this, but, don’t watch it. Or, if you insist on watching some of it, turn it off at the 1:26 mark. I’m not kidding. This trailer gives away too much of the story.
I’m not going to get into a generalized rant about trailers and clips and featurettes that show the whole movie before it hits theaters. I just want to say why I think you should go into this particular movie relatively unspoiled. Written and directed by Mike Cahill (Another Earth) the story is about a scientist, played by Michael Pitt, whose postdoctoral work is an effort to disprove irreducible complexity, »

Ever since Jon M. Chu dropped out of directing Masters of the Universe back in October, Universal Pictures has been looking for the right filmmaker to take his place, with a number of directors reportedly in contention. Today, we have word that Jeff Wadlow, who wrote and directed Kick-Ass 2, has signed on to rewrite the script and possibly direct.
The filmmaker was mentioned in February as one of the many contenders for this coveted job, including Mike Cahill (Another Earth), Harald Zwart (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and Chris McKay, who served as the editor of The Lego Movie but has never directed a feature before.
Jeff Wadlow's deal is only to write the script at this time, he could still end up directing the feature. While many are wondering who will direct Masters of the Universe, sources claim that the story is still far from ready, »

I Origins comes to theaters July 18th, 2014 and stars Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Steven Yeun, Archie Panjabi, Kashish, Cara Seymour, William Mapother. The film is directed by Mike Cahill. »
Mike Cahill and Brit Marling exploded on the film scene three years ago with the release of the excellent Another Earth. Since that release, I've been keeping a close eye on Marling's moves(she's been quite busy in the years since) and on Cahill who has been a little slower in developing his next project. Not that I'm complaining. I'd rather he take his time and re-emerge with another interesting story and it appears he has done exactly that with I Origins.
The new sci-fi drama stars Marling and Michael Pitt (nice to see him back after what seems like a very long break) as scientists studying the evolution of the human eye and making a startling discovery that could potentially change society as we know it and raising both spiritual and scientific questions. It sounds like [Continued ...] »
"Why are you working so hard to disprove Godc" It's an interesting question as I think the same could be asked of the opposite and it's just as interesting to wonder how someone could go through life not wondering at all, content at all times to just... be. This, among other things came to mind while I was watching the following first trailer for I Origins, which was acquired by Fox Searchlight out of Sundance and set for a July 18 release. Then again, after watching just the first half of the trailer, I was ready to write it off as the characters seem to be speaking in what some movies consider to be "high minded" intelligentsia as if it is saying something new. I mean, the thing with the elevens drawing someone to a billboard featuring someone's eyesc Come on. However, it appears that's just the start of it all. »

The intersection of spirituality, faith and chance... these are tricky ingredients to work with when it comes to spinning a cinematic tale, with the possibility of tilting toward the New Age ever present. But Mike Cahill gets it right with "I Origins" and the first trailer is here. Re-teaming the "Another Earth" director with Brit Marling, the film is led by Michael Pitt and Astrid Bergés-Frisbey and follows a man-of-science PhD student Ian who falls for the beautiful Sofi, who is his total opposite in almost every way. Their love is passionate but brief, and seven years later, Ian is married to his lab assistant, Karen. But a scientific discovery turns their world upside down, and Ian must track down Sofi to confront his past and find the truth. And it's probably not the kind of movie best summed up in a logline, so here's what Rodrigo Perez said in »

Two years ago, director Mike Cahill and screenwriter/star Britt Marling turned in a unique indie science fiction movie called Another Earth. Released around the same time as Lars Von Trier's Melancholia, the contemplative drama received pretty good reviews and several awards at the Sundance Film Festival. It also signaled a strong and distinct filmmaking voice. Now, we get to see what they have next. I Origins follows another tale of science and faith mixed in such a way that makes you »

According to Schmoes Know, Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow has taken on directing duties on Sony’s long-gestating live-action Masters of the Universe reboot, filling the space in the director’s chair vacated by Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation). Wadlow has recently penned the script for 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off X-Force, and should this He-Man rumour prove true, it would seem that Fox will need to find another director to bring Cable, Deadpool and company to the screen.
Sony has been developing Masters since 2009, and in 2010 the studio hired Mike Finch and Alex Litvak to draft a script, which was entitled Greyskull. The script has subsequently been rewritten by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), while the likes of Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Rian Johnson (Looper), Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), Kirk DeMicco »

Star Wars Last week, rumors began circulating that J.J. Abrams might be revisiting some of the classic environments of the original Star Wars trilogy in Star Wars: Episode VII, namely the ice planet Hoth and the desert planet Tatooine. Now, THR is adding some weight to at least half of that rumor by reporting that a "source" inside the production has revealed that Abrams is building a "re-creation of Tatooine." Abrams is a self-avowed devotee of the original movies and the entire Skywalker storyline revolves around the desert planet so this seems like one slam-dunk of a rumor.
Far less certain is the recent rumor that a virtual unknown has landed a major role in the new trilogy. Again, THR is out in front of this rumor, placing Oxford-educated actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers "in line to nab" a key role, possibly as the Jedi daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi. So far, the »

Jeff Wadlow is reported to have signed on for Masters of the Universe.
The Kick-Ass 2 director will take on Sony Pictures' He-Man film, according to Schmoes Know.
Wadlow was previously reported to be in the running for the Mattel adaptation.

GI Joe: Retaliation's Jon M Chu had signed up for the project before abandoning it last year.
It is unclear how the film might affect Wadlow's involvement in 20th Century Fox's X-Force.
Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean) is working on the script for the movie.
No details of Masters of the Universe's plot have been revealed. »

The long in gestation big screen reboot of Masters Of The Universe might just be pressing ahead again, with news of a fresh director seemingly joining the project.
Previously, Masters Of The Universe had been set to be directed by Jon M Chu. However, the G.I. Joe 2 director dropped out last autumn, at around the time that Pirates Of The Caribbean co-scribe Terry Rossio came on to rework the screenplay.
Back in February, the shortlist of directors for the new Masters Of The Universe had apparently been whittled down to names such as Mike Cahill (Another Earth), Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid remake) and Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2). And now, Schmoes Know is reporting that Wadlow has got the job.
Wadlow had apparently been Fox's »
