Watch: Michael Shannon Faces Otherworldly Dangers in 'Midnight Special' Clip

3 February 2016 10:54 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jeff Nichols has been on an unstoppable roll thanks to "Shotgun Stories," "Take Shelter" and "Mud," and now the writer-director is making a big return with the sci-fi drama "Midnight Special." Reuniting with his longtime collaborator Michael Shannon, Nichols seems to have imagined his most ambitious story yet, one that brings some menacing adult sensibitlies to what, on paper, sounds very much like a Spielberg-esque childhood saga.

New Images For Jeff Nichols’ Midnight Special Paint An Old-School Sci-Fi Thriller

2 February 2016 2:40 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Director Jeff Nichols arrested our attention with two gritty and realistic dramas in the form of Mud and Take Shelter in recent times, but for his latest creative venture, Midnight Special, the filmmaker is harkening back to a very particular brand of old-school science fiction.

A few months back, the movie’s maiden trailer evoked memories of Steven Spielberg’s seminal Close Encounters of the Third Kind, though Midnight Special and its familial dynamic is tailored more to the realm of the supernatural as opposed to extra-terrestrials – so far as we can tell, anyway. Reuniting with frequent collaborator Michael Shannon, the story centers on the relationship between Shannon’s father Roy and his young son (Jaeden Lieberher), who harbors a raw and inexplicable power.

New Images From Jeff Nichols' 'Midnight Special' Starring Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, And Kirsten Dunst

2 February 2016 12:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While The Big Movie of March 2016 is surely "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice," Warner Bros. has another movie opening that I'm much more excited about —Jeff Nichols' long awaited "Midnight Special." Today, a few more images have dropped to tease the movie, but plot details are still thin on the ground. Read More: The 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2016 Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Michael Shannon, Jaeden Lieberher and Sam Shepard star in a sci-fi thriller about a young boy with special powers who is wanted by government officials and religious extremists and who goes on the run with his father. It seems like the picture will be mixing different genres, and given that Nichols is behind the apocalyptic domestic drama "Take Shelter" and the almost fairy tale like "Mud," that sounds about right. "Midnight Special" opens on March 18th. »

‘A Gathering of Saints’ Movie in the Works With ‘Foxcatcher’ Exec Producer

25 January 2016 2:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Catch & Release Films is developing a movie based on the book “A Gathering of Saints: A True Story of Money, Murder and Deceit” about a pair of 1985 bombing murders in Utah.

Catch & Release principals Tom Heller and Frank Hall Green will produce the movie through their shingle, which acquired the rights to “A Gathering of Saints” from New York Times reporter Robert Lindsay, who also authored “The Falcon and the Snowman.”

Heller executive produced “Foxcatcher” after discovering the source material for the story in 2004, acquiring life rights to Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz and bringing the material to director Bennett Miller. He also has credits on “Precious,” “127 Hours,” “Win-Win” and “Mud.”

“A Gathering of Saints” investigates the three separate bombings, which killed two individuals and seriously injured a third, by Mark Hofmann — a disillusioned Mormon who used his talents to blackmail the Mormon Church by releasing forgeries of documents about the »

Bryan Singer says James Cameron offered advice on the end scene of X-Men: Days of Future Past

22 January 2016 3:12 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During IGN’s visit to the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer revealed that he sought out advice from James Cameron on 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, owing to Cameron’s experience dealing with time travel on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And while Cameron’s input was minor, he did offer one significant suggestion for the final scene where Wolverine wakes up in the new timeline at the end of the film.

“I sent the film to Jim, and at the end of that movie, it was very interesting; when Wolverine woke up, originally, my editor was obsessed with this visual blurriness, so when Wolverine’s walking around he’s seeing things in kind of a blur,” states Singer. “So I sent that to Jim, and Jim called me and goes, ‘Bryan, that blurry thing made me think that the wool was going to be pulled out from under me, »

Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer open to revisiting X-Men’s Dark Phoenix Saga

22 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Among the numerous criticisms aimed at X-Men: The Last Stand was the film’s rather poor attempt at adapting the Dark Phoenix Saga storyline. Well, now that X-Men: Days of Future Past has erased that movie from the timeline, and X-Men: Apocalypse is reintroducing Jean Grey with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, might we see a second stab at the iconic story arc?

“I think everything that hasn’t been told from First Class and Days of Future Past is up for grabs going forward, so it would absolutely be a story we could tell in a different way,” Simon Kinberg (a screenwriter on X-Men: The Last Stand) tells IGN. “We definitely explore how powerful [Jean Grey] is in this movie, and that can be something that is empowering and something that is dangerous.”

Psylocke and Storm featured in new X-Men: Apocalypse image, Simon Kinberg explains how they chose their Four Horsemen

21 January 2016 12:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With numerous X-Men: Apocalypse set visit reports popping up around the web, Screen Rant has debuted a new image of Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Storm (Alexandra Shipp) from the upcoming mutant superhero movie…

Psylocke and Storm will be joined by Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Angel (Ben Hardy) as part of Apocalypse’s (Oscar Isaac) Four Horsemen, and producer Simon Kinberg has revealed the process that he and Bryan Singer went through to select the foursome during an interview with Collider:

“Fassbender was the first person that we decided would be an interesting Horseman,” states Kinberg. “And then truly we just kind of sat there the way that anybody would, rather you were in a role-playing game or a video game or doing fan fiction, and it was like who are the coolest characters you wanna see? And who are interesting combinations with one another, and who are interesting foils for the heroes of the movie? »

Simon Kinberg says X-Men: Apocalypse is “biggest X-Men film we’ve ever done”

17 January 2016 11:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a big year for 20th Century Fox and its superhero movies. First up out of the gate is the R-rated Deadpool, followed by Bryan Singer’s latest X-Men adventure X-Men: Apocalypse – the first instalment in the “rebooted” timeline following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

During a fan Q&A, writer-producer Simon Kinberg has been discussing the new X-Men ensemble, calling it the biggest X-Men film to date, owing to Apocalypse’s (Oscar Isaac) “extinction-level threat to the world.”

“I think in some ways it’s the biggest X-Men film we’ve ever done,” states Kinberg. “We’ve never done one of these movies where the whole world — there’s like an extinction-level threat to the world. The whole world’s at stake… [Apocalypse] is  more interested in the sort of survival of the fittest. The strongest, no matter what they may be, surviving and making essentially a better world. »

8 original sci-fi films to look forward to in 2016

Among the sequels and reboots, there are also some exciting-looking original sci-fi films to look forward to in 2016. And here they are...

Did you see Coherence? Or maybe Predestination? They’re but two examples of relatively low-budget, original genre films that were both beautifully made and endlessly watchable. What they lacked in expensive special effects they more than made up for in mesmerising concepts and superb performances, whether it was from a cast of relative unknowns in Coherence or the perfect pairing of Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook in Predestination.

Only time will tell whether 2016 will play host to films as good as those, but we have to say, there are some potentially great sci-fi films on the horizon this year. Some have generous budgets and top-line casts, others are independently produced. For different reasons, all look well worth keeping an eye on...
