With its based-on-the-director’s-life pedigree and stars Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana, "Infinitely Polar Bear" — horrible title aside — sounds like many Sundance films past and present: a family struggles with mental illness, trying to keep one person whole while also keeping — or failing to keep — the family together. And after writing such good-to-indifferent Hollywood product like "The Rocker," "Monsters vs. Aliens," and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days," you can hardly fault writer-director Maya Forbes for trying to create something a little more substantive and a little less glib. And yet, even based on her experiences, "Infinitely Polar Bear" is so phony that you can imagine the production budget being made up of three-dollar bills; it treats severe mental illness as a series of quirky, fun-sy tics; the circumstances of its characters are tortuously contrived; and every child character seems not like a real, living child, but »

Two of Marvel's biggest stars, Avengers: Age of Ultron's Mark Ruffalo and Guardians of the Galaxy's Zoe Saldana, come together for an indie that doesn't require extensive makeup or motion capture work, in the first trailer for Infinitely Polar Bear. The plot is set in the late 1970s, following a manic-depressive mess of a father (Mark Ruffalo), who tries to win back his wife (Zoe Saldana) by attempting to take full responsibility of their two young, spirited daughters, who don't make the overwhelming task any easier.
Infinitely Polar Bear debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, where it was met with critical acclaim and eventually picked up by Sony Pictures Classics. Maya Forbes wrote the screenplay and makes her directorial debut, after writing movies such as Seeing Other People, The Rocker, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and the upcoming Trolls. Bad Robot's J.J. Abrams »
Exclusive: Shoot underway in South Africa on Chris Smith thriller.
Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond the Pines, The Gambler) has joined Tye Sheridan (Mud, Joe) and Bel Powley (The Diary of A Teenage Girl) in the cast of writer-director Chris Smith’s (Get Santa) thriller Detour, which is now underway in South Africa.
Sheridan will star as law student and all round good guy Harper who suspects his stepdad Vincent (Moyer) of causing the car crash that landed his mother in a coma.
Drowning his sorrows in a seedy La whisky bar, Harper ends up drinking with Johnny Ray (Cohen), a tough redneck who offers to “take care” of Vincent for a cool $20,000. Powley will play Ray’s beautiful but distant girlfriend.
