‘Indignation’ Review: James Schamus’ Philip Roth Adaptation, Starring Logan Lerman and Sarah Gadon, Resurrects the Focus Features Legacy

29 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a 15-minute scene at the center of “Indignation,” James Schamus’ adaptation of Philip Roth’s novel, that could work on its own as a short film. Marcus (Logan Lerman), a middle-class Jew sent to a heavily Christian college, confronts the school’s hawkish dean (Tracy Letts) about his anti-Semitic leanings. Their exchange unfolds as a mesmerizing power struggle, as the older, condescending overlord decries Marcus’ alleged sexual tryst with classmate Olivia (Sarah Gadon). With little more than escalating tones and a few well-timed camera angles, the scene shifts from awkward to unnerving and ultimately hilarious in its depiction of opposing ideologies in post-wwii America.

Above all, the scene says this: James Schamus is a real filmmaker.

Of course, anyone familiar with Lerman from roles as far-reaching as “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” and “Fury” knows that he can command the frame. »

The Most Successful Ya Novel Movie Adaptations, Ranked

22 January 2016 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Even if you're not a big reader of young adult fiction, you may have seen the advertisements for the new Chloë Grace Moretz movie The 5th Wave and suspected that it looks like the kind of movie that was adapted from a Ya franchise. All the elements are there: a post-apocalyptic dystopia, a winsome female protagonist who stands up to become the world's champion, an imperiled younger sibling and the winning combination of light science fiction and teenaged angst. The 5th Wave is the first in a trilogy of books by Rick Yancey about a group of underage rebels fighting off an alien invasion. »

Jack Reacher Sequel Taps The Hunger Games Actor Robert Knepper

21 January 2016 7:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Production is already underway on Paramount’s action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, but the studio has made room for another last-minute addition to the cast in the form of Robert Knepper.

Best known for his roles across Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, The Day The Earth Stood Still and both installments in Lionsgate’s two-part finale to The Hunger Games, Knepper will assume the role of General Harkness opposite Tom Cruise et al., one described as “a man of power, experience, and authority who thinks he’s the hero and is not afraid to do what’s necessary.”

Technically speaking, when we met Knepper’s character in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, he’ll be a retired general of the Us military, spending his days as CEO of a powerful yet dubious private military corporation. Cue the fist fight with Cruise’s title star, then.

Arnold won’t be back as Paramount officially pulls the plug on Terminator Genisys sequel

20 January 2016 3:48 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like a decent international performance at the box office hasn’t been enough to convince Paramount Pictures that a sequel to Terminator Genisys is worth the investment, as the studio has now officially pulled the tentatively – and hideously – titled Terminator 2 from its planned May 19th 2017 release date.

Terminator Genisys was intended as a relaunch of the franchise, and the first of a new trilogy of films. However, it received some scathing reviews upon release last year, and flopped domestically with just $89.8 million. It performed better in international markets, pulling in $350.8 million (including $113.2 million in China), and there had been talk that its $440.6 million worldwide gross would have been enough to get the sequel the green light.

Terminator Genisys was directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and saw Arnold Schwarzenegger leading a cast that also includes Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »
