The Host (2013)
Anon takes place in a future where privacy is non-existent and someone is always watching.

Amanda Seyfried plays a woman who has mastered the art of anonymity and she'll do whatever it takes to stay anonymous.
In addition to Syefried and O

Last weekend saw the release of “Rampage,” which may be the highest-rated video game movie on Rotten Tomatoes, but probably won’t go down in history as the king of monster movies.
This week’s question: What monster movie should people watch instead of “Rampage?”
Matt Zoller Seitz (@MattZollerSeitz), RogerEbert.com
The 2014 “Godzilla,” directed by Gareth Edwards. Try to watch it on the biggest screen you can find, in a dark room. It’s the most aesthetically daring monster movie, and one of the most daring big budget Sf films, released in the last decade, owing as much to “Close Encounters” as it does to anything Toho made. I was shocked by how much money it made. It was basically a Terrence Malick Godzilla movie, right down to the cutaways to other

Released to critical acclaim in both the East and the West, “Cure” was a breakthrough film for director Kiyoshi Kurosawa, a nerve shredding thriller about the hunt for a serial killer in a bleak and decaying Tokyo.
A series of murders have been committed by ordinary people who claim to have had no control over their horrifying actions. Following the only link – a mysterious stranger who had brief contact with each perpetrator and their victim – detective Kenichi Takabe (Kôji Yakusho, “13 Assassins”, “Tokyo Sonata”) places his own sanity on the line as he tries to end the wave of inexplicable terror.
It’s not just that Sydney Pollack’s 1975 classic feels untouchable (and relatively timeless, despite the fact that part of Robert Redford’s job is reading newspapers); it’s that the series directly lifting from the film comes from a somewhat unproven pedigree and will play on a network only accessible to satellite subscribers.
Well, after the first two episodes, the latter point isn’t a warning so much as a shame. Jason Smilovic (“Lucky Number Slevin”) and Todd Katzberg’s “Condor” isn’t a “drop everything and subscribe to DirecTV” kind of show, but it is
“Stephenie is one of the most prolific authors of our time with her unique portrayal of heroines that resonate with readers and television viewers around the world, and we look forward to working with her and Meghan on bringing the The Chemist to television,” said Marty Adelstein of Tomorrow Studios, who will produce alongside Meyer, Becky Clements and Meghan Hibett.
Published in 2016, The Chemist “follows the gripping tale of a woman who was one of the darkest secrets of a U.S. government agency so clandestine it didn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the
It’s been a nonstop ride for the actor ever since. Before 2017 rolled around, Russell -- whose first credited role came just seven years ago -- had a whirlwind year filming four movies back-to-back, taking him from Los Angeles to Colombia to Mexico to the Gold Coast with a quick 24-hour respite in between in Nashville to reunite with his love, Goliath star Diana Hopper, for a wedding.
The past several months, though, Russell has called Southern California home while he’s been in production

Andrew Niccol directed from his own script about a near-future world where there is no privacy, ignorance, or anonymity. Owen portrays a man who, while investigating a series of unsolved murders, finds a young woman (played by Seyfried) who has disappeared with no identity or history.

Nicholson has previously worked with Marvel Studios on Captain America: The First Avenger, where he served as supervising art director, while his production design credits include The Host, Divergent, Assassin’s Creed and the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He also received an Academy Award nomination for his work on Gravity, which should certainly put him in good stead for Carol’s cosmic adventure.

Diane Kruger’s name is looking more and more likely to enter the awards conversation in the coming months. The “Inglourious Basterds” star took home the Best Actress award at Cannes this year for “In the Fade,” and now comes word that the drama has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures with an awards-qualifying run planned for this autumn. ScreenDaily reports that a theatrical release will follow in early 2018.
The timely, well-reviewed German film sees Kruger playing a woman seeking revenge after her husband and son are killed in a bomb attack carried out by Neo-Nazis.
“Diane Kruger’s performance in ‘In the Fade’ is one for the ages,” commented Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles. “It is a stunning anchor to this incredibly timely and powerful film.”
“I was so moved by this movie — it’s a film about terrorism, but also a film about the people who have been left behind,” Kruger has said.
“In the Fade” marks the first time the German actress has acted in her first language. “Disorder,” “The Bridge,” and “The Host” are among Kruger’s previous credits. She’s spoken about the importance of opening up more opportunities for women and hiring more women directors “so that the younger generation can see that anything is possible.”
Diane Kruger-Starrer “In the Fade” Acquired by Magnolia was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
