Peeping Tom: Vigalondo’s Virtual Voyeurism Thriller Too Wrapped Up in Tech

In the barest possible sense, Nacho Vigalondo’s latest film, Open Windows, can perhaps be described as Hitchcockian due to the fact that it concerns a voyeuristic male utilizing an opportunity to secretly observe a beautiful female a la a modernized Rear Window sort of set-up. Whether homage or coincidence, parallels with Hitchcock die out past Vigalondo’s log line and instead the film becomes yet another vehicle for an Elijah Wood protagonist to be manipulated in highly unlikely and increasingly silly fashion. Though Vigalondo has a rather inspired visual template for the unfolding of the narrative, much like the earlier release of technologically inspired Dutch film App, it’s a design that will only serve to hopelessly date the film which relays its tale via webcams in rudimentary form, making it also reminiscent of that multiple simultaneous perspective Mike Figgis film, »

Chris Hemsworth Stars In First Trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea

16 October 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch the first trailer for Ron Howard’s action adventure In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex. The film is scheduled to open on March 13, 2015 in theatres and IMAX.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.

The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, »

Chris Hemsworth needs a bigger boat in 'Heart of the Sea' trailer

16 October 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

As a title, In the Heart of the Sea doesn't really capture the intense action and drama of Ron Howard's upcoming seafaring movie, which stars Chris Hemsworth as an early 19th-century whaler locked in combat with a gigantic sperm whale. At some point during the trailer, which points out that the true disaster tale contributed to Melville's inspiration for Moby Dick, the leviathan runs deep after being harpooned by the crew of the S.S. Essex—toppling masts and sending the ship sideways. You almost expect the level-headed member of the crew to mutter, "Ye shall require a bigger boat, »

Guillermo del Toro-produced 3D animated/action adventure comedy/romance "The Book of Life" comes out October 17, just before Halloween. (See the trailer, below.) Workaholic Del Toro's latest production will play like gangbusters to the under-served Hispanic audience, the fastest-growing moviegoer demo--as well as everyone else.

This time Del Toro's protege is Mexico City-born Cal Arts grad Jorge Gutierrez, who 4 1/2 years ago pitched Del Toro his vision of a magical Mexican Orpheus and Eurydice folk myth using stop-motion animation and hand-made wooden puppets, in which a young bullfighter (Diego Luna) and and an heroic Captain Latin America (Channing »

Cameras Start Rolling on A Monster Calls

30 September 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The award winning book, A Monster Calls, is getting a movie adaptation with Liam Neeson set to play the aformentioned monster, and now it's one step closer to hitting the big screen as the studios have announced the start of official production.  

I really enjoyed this book, and read it in about one evening.  It's a haunting tale about love and loss, and learning how to cope with life's hard realities.  While the subject matter may seem  wrapped in a simple format, the themes are resounding.  I'm interested to see how they manage to translate that into the movie, and crossing my fingers they manage to do so successfully.  I mean, Liam Neeson is going to be a freaking mo-cap monster...how could they go wrong!
