Excellent Insightful Featurette For Mike Cahill’s ‘I Origins’

30 July 2014 5:10 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mike Cahill is an interesting film-maker who continues to work on smaller projects but ones that strike a chord and make the viewer contemplate what you’re watching – it’s intelligent stuff but never inaccessible.

After the documentary Boxers And Ballerinas (2004), that was shot over two years and focused on the Us-Cuba conflict through the eyes of four young people, he then directed Another Earth in 2011. It was one of the first films I reviewed for Thn and opened up an interesting question of meeting another ‘you’ – and what would you do?

Cahill’s new film I Origins explores the relationship of the ‘eye’ in the evolution of our species. It tells the story of scientist Ian (Michael Pitt), who falls in love with Sofi (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey), and starts to discover something that science has never found before. The film also co-stars Cahill alumni Brit Marling in a secondary scientist and love interest role, »

I Origins to open Raindance 2014

29 July 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Director Mike Cahill will return to the independent film festival, where he screened his sci-fi feature Another Earth in 2011.

Mike Cahill’s I Origins is to open the Raindance Film Festival in London on September 24.

Cahill will host an audience Q&A following the screening of the film, which premiered at Sundance in January and won the Alfred P. Sloan Prize, which recognises excellence in motion pictures depicting science and technology.

The story centres on the work of a molecular biologist, played by Boardwalk Empire star Michael Pitt, whose study of the human eye leads to far reaching implications about scientific and spiritual beliefs.

Co-stars include The Good Wife’s Archie Panjabi and rising star Brit Marling, who also co-wrote and starred in Cahill’s debut, Another Earth.

It marks Cahill’s second visit to Raindance after showcasing his sci-fi feature Another Earth in 2011.

Cahill said: “I am thrilled and honoured to be returning to Raindance with my »

New Gotham Trailer Packed With Easter Eggs

28 July 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.

Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer as well, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of »

Review: I Origins, Ludicrous And Contrived, Yet Still Creates A Spell

26 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

"The eyes are the windows to the soul." This particular cliché forms the narrative and philosophical basis of Mike Cahill's latest, I Origins, which follows in the high-concept, indie sci-fi vein of his first feature, Another Earth (2004). The title also has a rather obvious pun embedded within: "I" = "eye," get it? And true to this idea, the film itself is full of eyes, beginning with the visually arresting opening sequence, a montage of eye close-up photos, which race by as the scientist protagonist Ian Gray (Michael Pitt) relates his lifelong obsession with eyes. He has photographed countless numbers of them over the years, and has made this the basis of his scientific research. His life's mission is to use his analysis of the evolutionary mechanisms...

What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

Film Review: Emotional Destiny Versus Science Debate in ‘I Origins’

25 July 2014 1:33 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In the current debate between metaphysical spirituality or intelligent design versus scientific and provable fact, there are demands regarding the religious or metaphysics that do not relate to those facts. What the new film “I Origins” hopes to provide for, is that there is room for both forms of mysticism in our lives, if only the eyes remain open.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Writer/Director Mike Cahill, in his first film since the transforming “Another Earth” (2011), takes on our ability to remain faithful in a tech-and-science realm, which seems to dispute faith with every passing discovery. By highlighting a research scientist – portrayed with magnificent clarity by Michael Pitt – Cahill brings forth a story that rocks our real world of assumed knowledge. The research scientist is on the edge of a cliff in this drama, and discoveries are made because this time they’re personal.

Ian Gray (Michael Pitt) is a graduate student »

‘I Origins’ Interview with Writer/Director Mike Cahill & Actor Michael Pitt

25 July 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Mike Cahill’s I Origins is sci-fi semi-thriller that takes the debate of science and religion to the unexplainable mystery of the human eye. Actor Michael Pitt plays Ian, a scientist who seeks to find a cure for blindness in order to disprove Creationism. More questions than answers are provided, however, when Ian finds himself in a spiritual journey that challenges his cause-and-effect convictions.

Pitt has worked with an impressive amount of directors in a career that is just starting, with names that include Martin Scorsese, Michael Haneke, and Bernardo Bertolucci. I Origins is the second film written and directed by Cahill, who works with a larger scale production this round compared to his tiny debut Another Earth.

I sat down in a roundtable interview with Cahill and Pitt to discuss the film, what intrigues them about the other, the preparation they did for such a science-heavy movie, and more. »

24 July 2014 8:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I Origins, the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill, tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt),tells the story about a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye, and finds himself in a struggle between science and spirituality. Recently, I sat down with director Mike Cahill and star Michael Pitt to talk about the film Check it out below!

He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman (Astrid Bergès- Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory.

I Origins – The Review

24 July 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2011 saw the release of one of the quirkiest of the many independent film releases (and there were many oddball little flicks), Another Earth. This weird drama/science fiction/fantasy hybrid (it does indeed concern a twin to our big, blue marble) was the first collaboration between director Mike Cahill and actress Brit Marling (the two co-wrote the script). It was an uneven blend of mysticism and intimate character study. Since then Marling became one of the “indie” film scene’s “it” girls with leads in The Sound Of My Voice and The East, while scoring some supporting roles in mainstream studio flicks like The Company You Keep and Arbitrage. Now the two are back, working together (but not writing) on a science speculative/drama/love story I Origins. And while Marling is not the lead player this time out, it still has that offbeat, off-center vibe while being much more »

I Origins

24 July 2014 7:36 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

I Origins

Directed by: Mike Cahill

Cast: Michael Pitt, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Brit Marling

Running Time: 1 hr 55 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: July 25, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: A scientist (Pitt) tries to find the cure for blindness while he falls for a person (Berges-Frisbey) with really captivating eyes.

Who’S It For? People who like the science scenes of Lucy, but with more question marks by the end.

Overall

“The eyes are the windows to the soul” is an aphorism that has degenerated to groan-worthy cliche throughout its billion casual usages. It is also an unfortunate piece of dialogue within I Origins, and by no coincidence the film’s thesis statement, of which writer/director Mike Cahill then attempts to restore profundity to this once poetic phrasing. With the eyes pondered as a means to identify souls, I Origins often keeps its exploration into the debate of science and spirituality at a dangerous whimsy. »

Science and Spirituality Meet in Mike Cahill's I Origins [Review]

24 July 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

There's a lot to love about Mike Cahill's sophomore feature I Origins. The follow-up to the enormously successful Another Earth (review) is exactly the kind of project we might expect from a filmmaker that has an obvious fascination with science and the human spirit and even more than his debut, I Origins explores the fine line between science and spirituality.

Michael Pitt jumps back into the movies after a successful TV run (most recently and notably as Mason Verger on NBC's "Hannibal") and stars here as Ian, a brilliant molecular biologist captivated by the eye. His research involves tracking the evolution of the eye in an effort to dispr [Continued ...] »

Interview: Director Mike Cahill, Actor Michael Pitt on ‘I Origins’

23 July 2014 5:46 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The debate between science and intelligent design (God) will go on as long as man evolves and searches for answers. A new and provocative film, “I Origins,” takes on the challenge of the debate through storytelling, and features hot actor Michael Pitt (“Boardwalk Empire”), directed by Mike Cahill (“Another Earth”).

Mike Cahill also teams again up with actress Brit Marling, who plays a research co-worker to Pitt’s main scientist character. Her last collaboration with Cahill, “Another Earth” – Marling also co-wrote the script – also investigated the concept of scientific certainly when faced with the mystery of an expansive and perplexing universe. In “I Origins,” the examination of the unique nature of the eye is explored, especially within its definition as a “window to the soul.”

Gotham showrunner talks Harvey Dent and Hugo Strange

23 July 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller about the inclusion of Poison Ivy – sorry, Ivy Pepper – and The Joker in the upcoming Batman prequel series, and now he’s been talking about utilising another two members of The Dark Knight’s Rogues Gallery in Harvey Dent and Professor Hugo Strange.

“We’re playing Harvey Dent slightly older,” Heller tells IGN with regards to the future Two-Face. “He’s more Gordon’s age in this telling. One of the things to avoid in order not to tell a high school story — which would be great, but it”s a different show on a different network at a different time that I would not be a part of. But he will go back to school and villains will be part of that world.”

And as for Hugo Strange, it seems his story will be linked with that of Arkham Asylum, »

I Origins Is a Prequel to a Script Sold to Fox in 2011

21 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I Origins was one of my favorite movies at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It's a faith vs science movie that makes the audience think, and it blew my mind to pieces. I just found out in a /Film interview with director Mike Cahill that this movie is actually a prequel to a script that he sold to Fox Searchlight in 2011 after he made his great sci-fi drama Another Earth. That script is called I, and this is an explanation from the director.

"[The end credits tease] is a whole ‘nother movie that I wanna make. And it’s called I. This is I Origins. This it has a, this has such an unusual title, right? And a lot of people are like are literally like this is grammatically confusing. It’s like what the hell is going on there? And the thing about me is I’m so literal when it comes to titles. »

Gotham showrunner talks Joker and Poison Ivy plans

21 July 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham has been generating a ton of fan interest because of its heavy focus on the Dark Knight’s extensive rogues gallery, who appear to be just as front-and-center in the series as its main protagonist, the young up-and-coming detective James Gordon.

Showing us early incarnations of these villains will be no easy feat, and is hopefully something the writers and showrunners will approach cautiously. It will be all too easy for them to throw in all kinds of easter eggs, fan-service cameos and winks at the audience; but luckily it seems like they’ve got a plan that will stray away from that.

Executive producer Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist) was present at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, and answered some questions about two of Batman’s most famous and beloved villains, the Joker and Poison Ivy.
