The site writes:

After ascending the ranks fairly quickly, she discovers herself to be in the center of a corporation linking "users' personal e-mails, social media, banking, and purchasing with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency." A press release for the project explains that the film will explore "the perils of life in a digital age where personal data is collected, sifted, and monetized and used for surveillance, »

25 June 2015 5:17 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Not content with having him as The Flash in their fledgling DC Cinematic Universe, Warner Bros. are looking to add Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) to the Harry Potter universe, with Variety reporting that the actor is in talks to join Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as Kredan, a person with magical powers who meets Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scarmander when he is New York City on his travels to find and document magical creatures. Miller already made quite an impression in We Need to Talk About Kevin, and he is yet another interesting choice for the Harry Potter spin-off following Redmayne and Inherent Vice’s Katherine Waterson, as female lead Tina. Miller’s name isn’t the only name been bandied about, with the publication adding that Josh Gad and Michael Cera are meeting with the studio next »

New Stanford Prison Experiment trailer sees college kids turn sadistic

14 June 2015 3:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A college psychology experiment takes a terrifying turn in the violent new trailer for The Stanford Prison Experiment.

The film, set in 1971, is based on the controversial experiment carried out at Stanford University by psychologist Philip Zimbardo.

The incident saw a group of college students cast as inmates and guards and placed in a replica jail - with some disturbing results, as some of the 'guards' began to take their roles too seriously.

The new clip certainly gives some clear hints about the shocking turn the experiment took. As Zimbardo (Billy Crudup) looks on, 'guards' begin to deliver beatings to traumatised 'prisoners', one of whom begs to be released.

The film also stars The Perks of Being a Wallflower actor Ezra Miller and Dredd's Olivia Thirlby, as well as Thomas Mann and Jesse Carere.

Kyle Patrick Alvarez directs the movie, which was adapted by Tim Talbott from Zimbardo's book »

'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' (2015) Movie Review

11 June 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Every year a number of indie comedies bow at Sundance to good word-of-mouth, but once the festival ends the rest of us approach with caution, perhaps rightfully so. Quirkiness and weirdness are too often used to cover a weak foundation, to hide the cracks instead of filling them. When a movie relies on such flimsy attributes, it crumbles before our very eyes, but when heart rests at its core, it can be truly special. Ultimately that is what makes Me and Earl and the Dying Girl as good as it is; no reason to proceed with caution, just open your arms and embrace it. Adapted by Jesse Andrews from his novel of the same name, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl tells the story of Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann), an awkward, self-deprecating high school kid determined to coast through his senior year as anonymously as possible.
