Steven Quale interview: Into The Storm, Final Destination 5

26 August 2014 12:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Director Steven Quale talks to us about his latest film Into The Storm, working on James Cameron's The Abyss, bad weather and more...

Steven Quale’s career seems to have been constantly submerged in water. Having worked with James Cameron back on The Abyss, their relationship has meant Quale’s involvement on multiple projects including Titanic and a co-director credit on the documentary Aliens Of The Deep. Quale’s solo feature directorial debut was on Final Destination 5, which wasted no time in plunging most of its cast into water, though they were mostly followed by rather heavy and deadly objects.

We caught up for a chat with Mr Quale to discuss his experiences of soaking actors in water and the challenges of filming a special effects heavy blockbuster, while managing to present a film with a new narrative perspective, as Into The Storm incorporates a first-person perspective into its story, »

Watch Richard Armitage and Max Deacon talk Into the Storm – Fmtv Exclusive Interview

22 August 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Into the Storm is out in UK cinemas now, and Flickering Myth TV were lucky enough to sit down with a bunch of the film’s stars. Finally up (watch our first interviews here, here and here) is our chat with actors Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, Captain America: The First Avenger) and Max Deacon (Flashbacks of a Fool, I, Anna) – where we talk about their experiences on the movie, which you can watch below.

Taking the disaster movie genre and giving it a found-footage twist, here’s the synopsis for Into the Storm:

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, »

Here's What We Know About Final Destination 6 (Not Much)

21 August 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Saw V, Paranormal Activity 4, the last three Halloweens...every franchise has a moment where the driving forces throw their hands up and say "fuck it." The Final Destination did more than kill its entire cast, it prevented U.S. audiences from flocking to the surprisingly great Final Destination 5.

It also made the studio gun-shy with respect to making another.

Has that changed?

No. Not yet.

Last year we brought news of an interesting pitch for a Medieval Final Destination movie. That doesn't appear to be in the cards, but neither is today's story about a Russia-set sequel.

Our friends at Bloody Disgusting reached out to a source close to the franchise for comment on the rumors, which were squashed instantly. Bloody went on to report that Warner Brothers and New Line are talking about making another film, but they have no story as of yet.

Fear not, kids. »

Into the Storm Review

20 August 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Steven Quale’s first movie was Final Destination 5. Hailed as a slight return to form for a franchise bogged down by the sequel dogma of most protracted horror franchises, perhaps this spelled good things for Quale, maybe by upping the spectacle, action, and tension of a disaster flick? Into the Storm represents all those things; a perfect playground for an upcoming genre talent. Sadly, it rarely pays off on any promise – and reminds you that, actually, Final Destination 5 wasn’t all that good anyway.

In the American town of Silverton, it’s Graduation Day. But a bright future is darkened by black clouds, as the stormchaser team led by Pete (Matt Walsh) and Allison (The Walking Dead’s Sarah Wayne Callies) detect a massive storm system heading straight for Silverton. After the initial tornado hits, Gary (Richard Armitage) must rescue his son, Donnie (Max Deacon), before the next »

Into the Storm, 2014

Directed by Steven Quale

Starring Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Alycia Debnam Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Jeremy Sumpter, Lee Whittacker, Kyle Davis, Jon Reep and Scott Lawrence

Synopsis:

Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.

As a professional, I am contractually obliged to give you a full and in-depth review of Into the Storm, but I feel it can be summed up pretty quickly: when the tornadoes are destroying stuff it’s great and when they’re not, it’s pretty awful. At least they don’t have sharks in them eh?

Into the Storm sets up our main groups of characters who are documenting the days events for various reasons. There is a single-parent family at war who making a time capsule video, a duo of doofus Jackass-wannabes who »

Flickering Myth goes Into The Storm

While at a screening of found-footage disaster movie Into The Storm, Flickering Myth Deputy Editor Luke Owen was fortunate enough to try the Oculus Rift Experience to find out exactly what it’s like to be inside a scene from the movie. You can watch the video below.

“It’s incredibly immersive”, Owen said. “This has to be the future of video games. You really feel like you’re in there with the characters. If they could get movie quality footage, it would be incredible”.

“I want one in my house”, he concluded.

Icons of Fright’s Writing Mixtape, Part Two: Bj Colangelo

13 August 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Like Jerry’s installment yesterday, I too tend to write with a playlist blasting in the background.  As a musical theatre performer and a former coffee-shop cover singer, music plays a major part in my life.  My music tastes are all over the board, but my writing playlists tend not to really click with what most people would assume is played when analyzing horror films.  My favorite bands aren’t even on this list, because my “writing mix” is very specific to my writing process.  It’s weird. I almost can’t listen to my all time favorite bands when I write because then I become distracted. I love finding new and undiscovered talents and I’m a sucker for female covers, but most of my songs are, well, you be the judge. -Bj Colangelo

Film Review: Failed ‘Twister’ Knockoff ‘Into the Storm’ is All Eyes, No Heart

10 August 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Early incarnations of “Godzilla,” for example, were so memorable because of the characters and its story. The “special effects” were laughable, but the films caught on despite it because they had heart.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Fast forward to today when the reverse tends to happen. Many films overprioritize their special effects but forget to begin from a quality script and craft memorable characters. Without starting there, all you’ve got is an exotic Lamborghini on the outside with a lawnmower engine failing to chug it along. Though Hollywood is currently addicted to eye candy, special effects should be a complement rather than a replacement.

Into the Storm” is directed by Steven Quale. We’ve only seen him in the director’s chair once before at the helm of “Final Destination 5,” but he also served as a visual effects supervisor on “Avatar.” “Into the Storm” opens with a tense and well-executed introductory scene, »

Weekend Report: 'Turtle' Power

10 August 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Ninja Turtles fans old and young showed up at the movies this weekend, driving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to one of the biggest August openings ever.Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy scored the highest second weekend of the Summer so far.The Top 12 earned $174.2 million this weekend, which is up 22 percent from the same frame last year. This August remains on track to be the biggest ever, and could be the first to pass $1 billion.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled the box office with $65.6 million this weekend. That ranks fourth all-time in the month of August. It's noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra ($54.7 million), though 3D premiums and ticket price inflation likely account for most of that gap. The movie also made more in one weekend than 2007 animated Turtles movie Tmnt earned in its entire run.This strong opening can be attributed primarily to the power of the Ninja Turtles brand. »

13 Awful Movie Sequel Titles We Wish Were Scrapped

10 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

What is it about movie sequels that just turns studios into blithering idiots? Aside from the fact that the vast majority of sequels are movies nobody really needs or wants, they often also end up with laughably awful titles, as evidenced no better than with the announcement this past week that the upcoming fifth Terminator film is to be named Terminator: Genisys. As cynical movie studios increasingly rely more on sequels to rake in the cash, it’s no surprise that we’re hearing more and more terrible sequel titles coming down the pike, and that’s before we even get to talking about the movies themselves, which not-so-coincidentally also happen to be pretty terrible for the most part.

Unsurprisingly, a healthy chunk of our selections for this list came from the horror genre, because it simply has a disproportionate number of sequels, and the usually cheap, redundant »

'Ninja Turtles' Shreds Competition on Friday

9 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dominated the box office on Friday with an impressive $25.6 million haul.Turtles opened noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which took in $22.2 million on essentially the same day back in 2009. Among Summer 2014 releases, Turtles is slightly above 22 Jump Street ($25.1 million) and Maleficent ($24.3 million).Opening weekends have been very front-loaded this Summer, and reviews and word-of-mouth aren't particularly good for Turtles. Still, it does have a ton of appeal with younger audiences, which tends to help boost Saturday/Sunday returns. By Sunday, Turtles will likely have earned anywhere from $62 to $68 million.Guardians of the Galaxy plummeted 67 percent to $12.3 million. That drop is identical to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which fell 67 and 68 percent, respectively. This suggests that the strong reviews and word-of-mouth didn't give Guardians much of a bump. For the three-day weekend, the movie should wind up around $41 million. »

Into the Storm | Review

Storm Drain of the Century: The Disaster Film Gets a Retrofit

It’s unclear if there’s any real point to the rather silly conception of the seemingly overtly serious Into the Storm, a retrofitted disaster flick that mimics the narrative of Twister sans the notable cast and pesky bits of extraneous detritus, such as character development. From the director that brought you Final Destination 5 comes this rain soaked little windstorm that will evaporate from your memory as soon as you return to meteorological reality. You’re bound to see films that are much worse this summer, but maybe few that seem as keen to prey on the base notion that there’s a sizeable audience out there wanting to pay stiff ticket prices to see stuff get blown away. Since it is rated PG-13, you aren’t going to witness any of the real carnage that such natural »

‘Into the Storm’ Review: Life Is Good, This Is Bad

8 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Into the Storm is uneventfully being dumped into theaters this weekend with a logline I won’t dare try to stretch into a lengthy synopsis. It reads as follows: “Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.” At this point you may be finding yourself a bit perplexed, maybe even infuriated by the idea that out of the 10,000 scripts Warner Bros. likely receives every year, they chose this one to greenlight. But fear not readers, Into the Storm isn’t the unmitigated disaster it appears to be. It’s much worse. Directed by Steven Quale (whose directorial credits, Final Destination 5 and Aliens of the Deep, are often considered the universal symbols of prestige) the film opens with brothers Donnie (Max Deacon) and Trey (Nathan Kress) creating time capsules — short, reflective videos for their future selves to look back at in 25 years.

Into The Storm – The Review

7 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In 1996 producer Steven Spielberg and director Jan de Bont jump-started the Summer box office (May 10, that’s still Spring, for goodness sake!) with the release of the thriller Twister (not based on the classic Milton Bradley game, of course). The film was a big hit and sparked a brief revival in the major studio disaster flicks similar to the Irwin Allen-produced crowd-pleasers of the 1970′s. Movie technology has advanced by leaps and bounds since then, and now mass-destruction is at the fingertips of most film makers, really just a few computer keyboard clicks away. The superheroes and giant robots have been trashing towns and cities long enough, it’s time for Mother Nature to strut her stuff once more. That may be part of the thought behind the new film Into The Storm, which has its roots in that almost 20 year-old flick and the proliferation of the basic cable »

'Into the Storm' (2014) Movie Review

7 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's not often the main characters in a movie are not played by the actors. I'd say it's even less frequent the main characters aren't even the special effects. That being said, I think Into the Storm may be the first film I've ever seen where the main characters are the cameras and yet, I still have a hard time calling this a found footage film, but the cameras are certainly the closest thing to actors you'll find in this travesty as CG thunder clouds and tornadoes make up the rest of the running time. In an era where made for TV movies such as this have found their place on the SyFy channel with the likes of Sharknado and Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda it's somewhat amazing to think a studio would even consider spending the additional money to beef up the effects and put it on the big screen.

‘Into the Storm’ Director Steven Quale on Found Footage and Keeping it Real

7 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Quale loves a good disaster film. He whetted his appetite as the second unit director on “Titanic” and “Avatar,” and claimed the director’s chair for 2011’s “Final Destination 5.” Born in Evanston, Ill., the 48-year-old helmer returned to his Midwest roots for “Into the Storm,” a tornado-centric drama spinning into theaters Aug 8.

What’s new in the tornado film genre? 

YouTube changed everything. You can see everything online. For the film, we wanted to keep realism, but stretch it a little bit. I didn’t want lion roars in the tornado sound effects. And I wanted our beastly end tornado to be one mile long.

Sounds big. 

Not big enough. We filmed the movie, and then there were reports of a tornado 2.6 miles wide. So we changed ours to two miles wide. This last decade, there have been some crazy storms.

You opted to shoot this film in Michigan — why? »
