Dev Patel Talks Fear Of Big Budget Films After The Last Airbender

2 December 2016 12:59 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via Paramount Pictures

I don’t think it’s an overstatment to say that we all have regrets about The Last Airbender. As well intended as writer/director M. Night Shyamalan may have been in adapting the fan favorite animated series to the big screen, there is little arguing that the quality of the film was less than optimal. Okay, less than optimal is an understatement. The film was a complete train wreck. I can take a bad movie any day, but when a movie commits the terrible atrocity of being boring, then we’ve ventured into unforgivable territory, and I’m sorry to say, that The Last Airbender managed to build a house on said territory.

Though, as bad as the film was for fans like us, it had to be a lot worse for all the parties involved in the project. Of course, the film didn’t »

This Upcoming Horror Movie Looks Insane, and You Need to Watch the Trailer

2 December 2016 9:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

As if James Gunn isn't busy enough making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he had time to write a little thriller called The Belko Experiment. It's your classic hostage situation: employees of a corporate office in Colombia suddenly find themselves imprisoned in their building and being ordered to kill each other. Even if this doesn't sound like your jam, please give the trailer a shot. Sh*t gets real. So many of your favorite TV actors are here, it's practically a roll call: Scandal's Tony Goldwyn, Gilmore Girls' Sean Gunn (who happens to be James Gunn's brother), The Walking Dead's Michael Rooker, The Newsroom's John Gallagher Jr., and Scrubs' John C. McGinley. The Belko Experiment will be out on March 17. Related:7 Terrifying Movies That Have Already Been Slated For 2017 »

Watch the Official Red Band Trailer for The Belko Experiment

30 November 2016 8:44 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

80 people. One workplace. One new priority on the agenda: kill your co-workers. Office employees experience something much more agonizing than "a case of the Mondays" in the official trailer for The Belko Experiment.

Directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, The Darkness) from a screenplay by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither), The Belko Experiment will be released in theaters on March 17th, 2017 from Orion Pictures and Bh Tilt:

"Written by the acclaimed writer/director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, Slither) and directed by Greg McLean (creator of the Wolf Creek franchise), The Belko Experiment is a terrifying, provocative and at times hilarious thrill-ride that literally provokes the question: what does it take to survive at work?

From Orion Pictures, The Belko Experiment stars John Gallagher Jr. (The Newsroom, 10 Cloverfield Lane), Tony Goldwyn (Scandal), John C. McGinley (Stan Against Evil, Scrubs), Adria Arjona (True Detective), Josh Brener (Silicon Valley »

American Horror Story: Roanoke's Adina Porter Had No Idea She Was the Star of the Season

17 November 2016 3:24 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

When American Horror Story: Roanoke first started, few could have predicted how it would all end, or who would still be standing when we got to the finale. We assumed we'd see more of the couple who gave up their life savings to buy the house, or of the actors who played them in the reenactment. In the end, however, it was the the cop sister, who survived nearly to the end of all ten episodes thanks to the fact that she was willing to do anything to protect her daughter, and also partly thanks to that heart she ate. Adina Porter, who many TV fans will know from True Blood, The Newsroom, and The 100, played Lee, sister of Matt (Andre Holland), and sister-in-law of Shelby (Lily Rabe).

AFI Film Review: ‘Miss Sloane’

11 November 2016 11:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Further evidence of the Aaron Sorkinization of American screenwriting, “Miss Sloane” is a talky, tense political thriller, full of verbal sparring and fiery monologues, undone by a really dumb ending. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t smart for most of its running time. Constructed like a magic act by first-time screenwriter Jonathan Perera, with tricks up every sleeve that keep audiences guessing, this twisty peek inside the sausage factory of American politics features characters who talk faster than most people think. Plus, it’s engaging — make that downright electrifying — to watch a female star as strong as Jessica Chastain carry a film about a D.C. lobbyist who risks her reputation for a cause she believes in.

Directed by handsome drama maestro John Madden (“Shakespeare in Love,” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) and positioned as a cross between “Michael Clayton” and “All the President’s Men,” the movie features morally bankrupt D. »

Aaron Sorkin Writes a Letter to His Daughter About Donald Trump: ‘This Is Truly Horrible’

10 November 2016 9:01 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Aaron Sorkin, whose rapid-fire dialogue has defined such politically charged works as “The West Wing,” “A Few Good Men” and “The Newsroom,” has written a letter to his daughter about Donald Trump. Vanity Fair published the note, in which the screenwriter tells his 15-year-old daughter that “I won’t sugarcoat it — this is truly horrible” before attempting to strike a more hopeful tone.

As anyone familiar with his work and his politics could have guessed, Sorkin is no fan of the President-elect. He refers to Trump as “a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn” whose supporters — the Ku Klux Klan, white nationalists, “sexists, racists and buffoons” — are no better. “We’ve embarrassed ourselves in front of our children and the world, »

This year’s narrative and documentary feature competitions include 20 projects vying for grand prizes of $10,000 and bottles of wine, awarded to one narrative film and one doc. While all would love to walk away with the top prize, directors are already winners as they’re invited to participate in the festival’s Artists-in-Residence Program.

When people are submitting their films to us, it’s also kind of like applying to college — the film is their essay,” says Marc Lhormer, Nvff co-founder, executive and artistic director.

Those selected enjoy a six-night stay and decadent lunch and dinner receptions at luxury resort Meadowood Napa Valley during a residency that includes master classes with the likes of director Stephen Gyllenhaal (who also has the drama “So B.

The Predator: Olivia Munn Joins Shane Black’s Reboot, Setting Details

3 November 2016 2:26 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With a February 2018 release date looming for Shane Black’s long-awaited reboot to the Predator series, things are getting dangerously close to where the film needs to start shooting. Obviously, it’s not a necessity, but with most Hollywood projects, the film should start shooting roughly a year in advance of its release, so that it has time to get the visual effects done, which is no small task. It’s November now, which only puts us a few months away from when the film should be shooting, and despite this, we still have only a few details regarding the movie.

Luckily for us, a new report from THR has given us a few key details. The first involves casting. Last month, Benicio del Toro had to bow out of the production, and was replaced by Boyd Holbrook. Now, the outlet is reporting that the production is in the process »

X-men: Apocalypse Actress Olivia Munn Joins The Cast Of Shane Black's Predator Reboot

3 November 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to THR, Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse, The Newsroom) has joined the cast of The Predator, and will play a scientist opposite Boyd Holbrook's "Special Forces commando" lead. Though we don't have any more info on the characters, the site does reveal some rather surprising new details on the sci-fi flick's setting. Apparently "the story plunks the deadly alien hunter, who audiences have seen fight in jungles, concrete jungles, frozen wastelands and alien planets, in the harsh environment of … suburbia." Fans actually did get a glimpse of how something like this would go down in the rightly maligned AvP sequel, but we'll assume (hope?) Shane Black and co. have something a lot better than that in mind for this film.  Black is directing from a script by Fred Dekker, while John Davis, Joel Silver, and Lawrence Gordon are producing. The Predator is currently set for release on February 9th, »
