Adapted by Harrower himself, Una sees Mara play the title character, a tortured individual who we find having random sex in a nightclub and then walking home barefoot as day breaks back to her childhood home where she still lives with her mother. Andrews skillfully uses suggestion in the couple of scenes prior to give the viewer the impression that she was abused at a younger age – vivid images of a young teenager visiting an older man’s house. The story unravels slowly to reveal that a thirteen-year-old Una »

The bad news: despite three wide releases, the weekend marked another box office downslide. The $94 million Top Ten total is off 11% from 2015, continuing the recent post-Labor Day decline.
But given the earlier films performing weaker than last year’s fall releases, their results, even with some respectable holds, can’t compare to 2015 grosses. So for theaters, the drop continues.
The Top Ten
1. The Girl on the Train (Universal) New – Cinemascore: B-; Metacritic: 48; Est. budget: $45 million
$24,660,000 in 3,144 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $7,844; Cumulative: $24,660,000

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have had a busy week. After being announced as the composers for “Patriots Day,” Peter Berg’s upcoming dramatization of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Nine Inch Nails bandmates/film-score composers have released “A Minute to Breathe,” a new song from the climate-change documentary “Before the Flood.” Listen below.
Directed by Fisher Stevens (“The Cove”) and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film explores our planet’s current ecological state of affairs with an eye toward a potentially bleak future. “Climate change is the most critical and urgent problem facing our world today, and it must be a top issue for voters this election day,” DiCaprio told The Hollywood Reporter last month. “Fisher and I set out to make a film that not only educates people about the challenges we face if we fail to act, »

Over the years, we’ve seen Hollywood take a few different avenues when adapting pulpy, bestselling phenomenons. David Fincher has displayed a couple of different techniques, putting his chilly, authorial touch on “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and embracing the camp of the high-wire story in “Gone Girl,” while Lee Child’s Jack Reacher books have been turned into a star vehicle for Tom Cruise.

Some events test our courage, Some people inspire our strength, And some moments define our spirit.
Watch the official teaser trailer for Patriots Day.
Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon), with a screenplay by Peter Berg, Matt Cook and Joshua Zetumer from a story by Peter Berg, Matt Cook, Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, it’s been announced that Academy & Grammy Award-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl) will compose the score for the film.
An account of the Boston Marathon bombing, Patriots Day is the powerful story of a community’s courage in the face of terror.
In the aftermath of an unspeakable attack, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again. Weaving together the stories of »

Some may wonder exactly what the story is behind Patriots Day, the Peter Berg film about the Boston Marathon bombing, and while the trailer is heavy on showcasing the drama of the event, and making sure you see the people starring in it, it does give you a little glimpse of Mark Wahlberg‘s character.
It looks as though we are going into the lives of some of the figures associated with the rescue/relief effort and the hunt for the bombers.
The crossing guard remark might not be what I chose to highlight in the trailer, but this is clearly a look at the film that isn’t after revealing too much, so there might not have been much to work with.

It’s safe to say that Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor has successfully made a name for himself in the world of film scoring, having won an Oscar for his score in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and written the scores for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Gone Girl.” However, now Reznor is on track to accumulate some cult film cred through his work with David Lynch.

For David Fincher’s drama, The Social Network, Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and composer Atticus Ross teamed up to deliver their first collaboration on a feature film score. Since then, they’ve reteamed with the filmmaker for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, always delivering spectacular award worthy scores. But their […]

It sounds like director Peter Berg is pulling out all the stops for Patriots Day, his movie about the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. He’s already got one of Boston’s favorite sons, Mark Wahlberg, starring in it, along with J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, and Kevin Bacon. Now, as reported by Consequence Of Sound, Berg has enlisted Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to compose original music for the Patriots Day score. Berg made the announcement on his Instagram, explaining that he’s “honored” to be working with “these two straight-up genius artists.” He also adds that they’ll be “bringing their deep soul and fury” to the film.
Reznor previously worked on the score to The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl, so this Boston Marathon bombing movie seems like a bit of a departure. In terms of subject matter, at ...

Peter Berg appears to have found his niche. After “Lone Survivor” and this week’s “Deepwater Horizon,” the filmmaker is about to complete his based-on-fact trifecta with “Patriots Day,” a dramatization of the Boston Marathon bombings. According to Berg’s Instagram, he’s found the film’s composers: Trent Reznor Atticus Ross.
He announced the news yesterday with a blurry photo and appreciative caption: “I couldn’t be more honored than to be working with these two straight up genius artists. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Bringing their deep soul and fury to @patriotsdayfilm @treznor.” Reznor and Ross won an Oscar for composing the score to David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” later collaborating with the filmmaker again on “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Gone Girl.”

To the surprise of no one, Harry Potter has just topped a UK list of fan's favorite book-to-film adaptations. How did your favorites fare? J.K. Rowling's adaptations also topped a similar list last year. Considering she's British and writer of one of the biggest franchises in history, I would assume Rowling's work will easily continue taking the top spot for years to come. Unless they decide to do a reboot which somehow turns out terrible. Let's not think about that. According to The Guardian, 32% of 2,000 cinemagoers put Harry Potter at the top of their lists. It's a relatively small sample of people living in the UK, but something tells me it would stay on top even if it were larger. Here's the full list as they voted: 1. The Harry Potter series (Jk Rowling) 2. A Christmas Carol (Charles Dickens) 3. The Shawshank Redemption (Stephen King) 4. The Lord of the Rings saga »

Back in 2005, the book Men Who Hate Women was published in Sweden by publisher Norstedts Förlag. The novel was a posthumous publication from author and journalist Stieg Larsson, and in 2008, it was published in English under the name The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. From there, the novel went on to be an international sensation, and was adapted into a trilogy of films in Sweden. In true Hollywood style, it was acquired for an American adaptation, and was eventually released in 2011.
Directed by David Fincher and starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, the film proved to be a faithful and compelling take on the original source material (many even felt it was superior to the original Swedish movie). While the film had stellar reviews and great word of mouth, it wasn't exactly the feel-good film of the holiday season, and only went on to make around $230 million at the box office off its $90 million budget. »

The moment Sony fast-tracked plans to develop an American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in 2011 – only two years after the release of the original, Noomi Rapace version – a handful of moviegoers were understandably perplexed.
Drafting in top-tier talent in the form of Daniel Craig, director David Fincher and The Social Network‘s Rooney Mara as the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander, the end product was a chilling, largely enjoyable psychological thriller, and though Sony had initially mapped out plans to adapt Stieg Larsson’s full Millennium series, off the back of lowly box office returns, those plans quickly unravelled.
Indeed, interest in the English-language version appears to be waning and waning fast, but as is so often the case, Sony’s radio silence on the matter has only fuelled speculation regarding Dragon Tattoo‘s future. Early on, reports claimed the studio wanted to push on with its adaptation sans »

For many, Rooney Mara will be their Lisbeth Salander. Noomi Rapace did a marvelous job in the original, but the American remake was many people's first introduction to the character, and resulted in an Oscar nomination for Mara. The main difference between Rapace and Mara is that the former actually got to finish her journey with the character, following up The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with The... Read More »
