Radha Mitchell And More Set For The Shack

Radha Mitchell And More Set For The Shack
The cameras are about to start rolling on Exam director Stuart Hazeldine’s latest, the adaptation of William Paul Young’s 2007 novel The Shack. He’s just added some new actors to the cast, including Radha Mitchell, Graham Greene and Aviv Alush.Adapted by John Fusco from Young’s book, the story follows a man (Sam Worthington) whose youngest daughter is kidnapped during a family holiday. Evidence turns up in an abandoned shack to suggest she was murdered, which stymies the case. But then, four years later, he receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to go back to the ruined building. He accepts, against his better judgment, and what he finds there changes his life forever. As it turns out, he might be in luck twice over, as Greene is on to play Male Papa, a calm and serene representation of the deity, with Spencer playing the female take.

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

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,

Film Review: ‘Into the Storm’

Film Review: ‘Into the Storm’
Back in ye olde summer of 1996, few could have imagined that we would eventually look back fondly on Jan de Bont’s “Twister” as the kind of movie “they” don’t make like they used to. And yet, a scant two decades later, here comes “Into the Storm” to prime that nostalgic tear. An all-but-official redo of de Bont’s film for the YouTube/Instagram generation, director Steven Quale’s found-footage Frankenstorm extravaganza generates even more racket than its predecessor (especially in theaters equipped with the new Dolby Atmos sound system) and markedly less human interest — up to and including a shameless heart-tugging coda that wraps itself in Old Glory more snugly than a Tea Party sleepover. Ultimately little more than a feature-length demo reel for nine credited VFX companies, this mid-budget New Line Cinema slate filler may earn some quick late-summer coin from undiscriminating teen auds; all others are

New Trailer Takes Us Into The Storm

It’s confession time – I have a great affection for big, loud action/disaster movies that are made really well. I mean, it’s not a guilty pleasure thing – it’s a deep, abiding adoration. Speed, Jurassic Park, Cloverfield – these are all firmly among my favourite movies. Twister, for me, is the gold standard. Epic, humorous, heartfelt and unrelenting – the last best film of Jan De Bont’s directorial career has remained unsurpassed in the realm of inclement weather films for 18 years. Could the upcoming tornado flick Into The Storm be a real contender in the genre? If the new trailer is any indication, the odds are definitely in its favour.

Directed by Steven Quale (Final Destination 5), from a script by John Swetnam (Evidence), Into The Storm sees a group of high school students face the events and aftermath of an unprecedented series of devastating tornadoes that descend upon their town.

A Found Footage Dance Film Is The Natural Progression of Popcorn Movies

In news that sounds as if it was ripped straight out of some kind of Movie Mad Libs, Deadline is reporting that R&B singer John Legend has teamed up with rising screenwriter star John Swetnam to make the world’s first found footage dance film. The film will be titled Breaking Through and is described as “a documentary-style dance drama for the YouTube generation.” In addition to producing the film alongside Legend, Swetnam will also pen the feature and helm it, making it his feature directorial debut. As random as the news may sound, Swetnam’s still-growing resume is actually evidence of his interest in both subgenres – he’s got a pair of found-footage-heavy features in the can (Evidence, which was based on his short of the same name, along with the natural disaster found footage feature Into the Storm, which arrives in August) and a dance film with a beloved pedigree on the way (he

Osiris Sets a Release Date for Kitchen Sink Found Footage Film Evidence

All the way back in 2011, I reviewed a found footage film called Evidence (no relation to the Stephen Moyer film of the same name) and found it a bit of a mess that descended into "everything but the kitchen sink" antics in the third act. That film is finally getting a DVD release from Osiris Entertainment on April 15th. That's the box art you see here; we have a new trailer for you as well.

Kevin Bacon Joins Blumhouse Horror 6 Miranda Drive

Back in early 2011 reports were that Aussie director Greg McLean would be tackling Lionsgate's new supernatural feature '6 Miranda Drive'. A project that was even set to hold up his plans for 'Wolf Creek 2'. Now nearly 3 years later the outback slasher sequel is in the can and there's no still no sign of '6 Miranda Drive'. However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, McLean is back in action with Blumhouse and Chapter One Films taking over production proceedings. And the micro-budgeted thriller has scored its leading man in the form of Kevin Bacon -below ('The Following'). 'Evidence' star Radha Mitchell is also currently in talks for a supporting role....

Syfy Picks Up Legion-Based Dominion as 2014 Series

It’s always exciting news when Syfy picks up a brand new scripted series, and we have high hopes for Dominion, based on characters from the 2010 movie Legion, as Syfy today announced its series order. We have equally high hopes that Syfy is making room for the new series on a new night – like maybe Thursdays? – and isn’t making room by finishing off one of our favorite no-longer-new series. Please.

Syfy Greenlights Dominion To Series For 2014 Supernatural Action Drama Produced by Universal Cable Productions Series Stars Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale, Anthony Stewart Head and Luke Allen-Gale

New York – December 4, 2013 – The ultimate celestial battle between good and evil will descend to Earth in 2014 as Syfy officially greenlights the scripted drama Dominion (working title) to series, it was announced today by Syfy President, Dave Howe. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions and Bold Films, and filmed in Cape Town,

Buffy’s and Merlin’s Anthony Stewart Head Joins Dominion Pilot for Syfy

Yes they’re still calling it a pilot, but at least Syfy is issuing press releases about the Dominion project in development. Hopefully now that they have the major casting out of the way, they can get going on this and we’ll be hearing that it’s great and that it’s green-lit for a series run.

Syfy Rounds Out Cast For Dominion Pilot Anthony Stewart Head Is “David Weel,” Roxanne McKee To Play “Claire Rysen,” Luke Allen-gale Is “William Weel,” And Shivani Ghai Guest Stars As “Arika” In Supernatural Series Pilot Produced By Universal Cable Productions

New York – September 24, 2013 – Syfy announces additional casting for its upcoming supernatural drama pilot, Dominion with the signings of Anthony Stewart Head, Roxanne McKee, Luke Allen-Gale and guest star Shivani Ghai. Produced by Universal Cable Productions, the pilot is set to begin shooting this month in Cape Town, South Africa.

Syfy Announces Casting – Charles Widmore! – and More Plot Details for Legion-Based Pilot Dominion

We first told you back in July about Syfy giving the green light to the pilot Dominion, based on characters in the 2010 film Legion. Back then we had little to go on besides a sketchy paragraph about it being set 25 years in the future after an epic war between an army of angels and humankind.

Now we have more, including not only the casting of three major characters (at least two of whom are likely familiar to you) but a lot more in the way of plot and character detail.

Although I’m completely enthusiastic and encouraging about this pilot, the fact that one of the actors, Christopher Egan, was also cast in the pilot Gothica as Dorian Gray proves that casting a pilot by no means guarantees its pickup to series.

You have been warned; get excited about this, but don’t fall in love just yet:

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Amour,' 'Epic,' 'Scary Movie 5'

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"Amour"

What's It About? Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke tells the heart-wrenching story of an elderly couple fighting against the deterioration of the body and mind in this brutally honest French drama. Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) and Anne (Emmanuelle Riva) are retired octogenarian music teachers whose lives vastly alter when Anne suffers from the first of several strokes. Georges struggles to take care of his wife as watches her gradually lose her ability to move and speak.

Why We're In: One of the most powerful films in recent years and winner of the 2012 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, "Amour" shows love at its most harrowing. Known as a horror master, Haneke uses slow-pacing and raw storytelling in this film to truly show life's real horrors. With some of the best performances ever from Riva and Trintignant, "Amour" is not merely a film that will make you weep,

Syfy Orders Pilot for Dominion, Series To Be Based on 2010 Movie Legend

Just to be clear, the proposed series Dominion is not based on “a movie legend,” it’s based on “the” movie entitled Legend. To continue on with the clarity, Syfy has greenlit the pilot, not the series. Still, I’m always up for a good epic series, so here’s hoping. It’s being written by the same man who’s working on the Ringworld miniseries, which I’m also hoping will be making it to our TV screens. Here are the details:

Syfy Greenlights Series Pilot Dominion It’S Good Vs. Evil On An Epic Scale In Project Produced By Universal Cable Productions And Bold Films

New York – July 26, 2013 – The future of humanity hangs in the balance as the ultimate celestial battle descends to Earth in Syfy‘s compelling new series Dominion, which has been greenlit to pilot by Syfy. Universal Cable Productions and Bold Films are producing.

Film Review: ‘Evidence’

Film Review: ‘Evidence’
The titular “Evidence” in this aggressively terrible horror quickie from director Olatunde Osunsanmi is video footage showing the last hours in the lives of a busload of Vegas-bound revelers whose trip ended abruptly in the Nevada desert. The movie itself is conclusive proof that the found-footage horror cycle sparked by “The Blair Witch Project” and mined successfully by the “Paranormal Activity” series has finally reached its low ebb. (Osunsanmi himself employed a similar approach on his 2009 alien-abduction mock docu “The Fourth Kind.”) Currently haunting a few multiplex screens and available on VOD, “Evidence” will require no tampering to disappear without a trace.

Pic opens with investigators arriving at the grisly crime scene, from which little is recovered aside from charred human remains and an assortment of camcorders and cell phones belonging to the victims — all conveniently fire-damaged just enough for their footage to be watchable, but interrupted by periodic blasts
