The Music of All Nighter: An Interview with Composer Alec Puro

Gavin Wiesen’s follow up to his Sundance hit “The Art of Getting By” is being released March 24 on VOD and is titled “All Nighter”. The comedy centers around a workaholic father (J.K. Simmons) who attempts to visit his daughter (Analeigh Tipton) during a layover in La, only to discover that she's disappeared, forcing him to team up with her awkward ex-boyfriend (Emile Hirsch) in order to find her over the course of one transformative night. “All Nighter” marks Wiesen’s second collaboration with composer Alec Puro as Puro also scored “The Art of Getting By”. We had a chance to briefly talk with Puro about everything from the scoring process for “All Nighter” to what type of project he would like to score next. Fans...

Film Review: ‘All Nighter’

Film Review: ‘All Nighter’
Character actors can wait entire careers for the kind of breakthrough J.K. Simmons had in “Whiplash.” The Oscar-winning role propelled the well-liked but often under-the-radar actor to everything from the talk-show circuit to “Saturday Night Live” host. But an Oscar is no golden ticket to better material, as demonstrated by “All Nighter,” a wan, mismatched buddy comedy toplining Simmons and Emile Hirsch that’s destined to disappear quickly from theaters and VOD.

The part may be tailor-made for Simmons’ no-nonsense persona, and his performance reliably rock solid, but the bland execution of director Gavin Wiesen and the uninspired scripting of Seth Owen have no comic zing. It’s a night all too easy to forget.

The pic opens on an awkward first meeting between Hirsch’s nebbishy Martin and Simmons’ commanding Mr. Gallo, the father of Martin’s g.f., Ginnie (Analeigh Tipton). Ginnie isn’t particularly close to her dad,

Interview – Director Gavin Wiesen & Composer Alec Puro Discuss Their New Film All Nighter

As filmmakers and moviegoers know by now, there are many elements that have to come together to make a movie truly spark and become a Titanic, Star Wars, or even as we have seen this year a La La Land. These components can include the cinematography, the writing, the actors’ performances and also very importantly the score. Can you imagine Jaws or Halloween without the ominous themes telling us when danger is near? Gavin Wiesen learned the importance of a film’s score and the emotion it can bring after working with composer Alec Puro on his directorial debut/Sundance hit The Art of Getting By. With Puro and Wiesen remaining good friends after The Art of Getting By was complete, it only made sense for them to work together again on Wiesen’s follow up feature All Nighter hitting theaters in La this Friday and expanding to VOD & Digital HD March 24th.

The Weekend Warrior 3/17/17: Beauty And The Beast, The Belko Experiment

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. And if you're into box office and how movies might do, come play some of the box office games at EZ1 Productions including their new Pick 5 game!

This Past Weekend:

As expected, Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island won the weekend, and honestly, the Weekend Warrior’s original prediction of $61.6 million was pretty darn close to the movie’s opening weekend which ended up at $61 million. (Unfortunately, I chickened out on Thursday because my prediction was so much higher than all others and lowered it to $58 million, which was Still closer to than every other prediction last weekend.) Also, as expected (at least by me), Hugh Jackman’s Logan took a 2nd weekend tumble as has been the case with most X-Men movies,

2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Jeffrey Blitz’s Table 19

A dramedy that the Duplass bros. were originally looking to add to their film canon, it’s Sundance habitual Jeffrey Blitz who would pick up with torch for a project that would also coincidentally see him reteam with his Rocket Science starlet Anna Kendrick. We’re thinking that after having his entire filmography in Spellbound (2002), Rocket Science (2007) and Lucky (2010) play out in Park City that this might be a fourth time’s a charm. Also starring Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell and Amanda Crew, filming on the Atlanta set Fox Searchlight production began last March. We’re assuming that the trimmings and cutlery on Table 19 are more than ready.

Gist: Written by the the Duplass Brothers, this is described as a singles-at-the-wedding pic, the ensemble comedy follows a group of strangers who meet at the “losers” table at a wedding. Told from their perspective,

Week in Review: Rip ‘Lotr’ cinematographer Andrew Lesnie

This week saw a number of sad losses in the entertainment industry. The singers of both “Louie Louie” and “Stand by Me” passed away this week, as well as Oscar-nominated screenwriter Don Mankiewicz, who was nominated for I Want to Live! Mankiewicz was the son of Herman J. Mankiewicz (Citizen Kane) and the nephew of Joseph L. Mankiewicz (All About Eve), and the father of John Mankiewicz (House of Cards). He was 93.

But perhaps most shocking was the loss of cinematographer Andrew Lesnie, who died suddenly this week at just 59 years old. Lesnie won an Oscar for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and he subsequently filmed all five of the remaining Lotr films and Peter Jackson’s King Kong and The Lovely Bones. Some of his more interesting credits are his work on Babe and Babe: Pig in the City. Lesnie’s last film however

Film Review: ‘Lullaby’

Film Review: ‘Lullaby’
With a solemnity belied by his last name, sometime-actor-producer-painter-sculptor Andrew Levitas makes a doggedly personal and downbeat directorial debut with “Lullaby,” about a family that gathers for its patriarch’s imminent cancer death. The name cast, including Garrett Hedlund in a charismatic leading turn, may lure viewers, but even in limited release (with a simultaneous bow on VOD), the film faces grim B.O. prospects, given its subject matter.

In a director’s note, the polymath helmer — who has worked across visual arts, acted in various bit parts, and taken producing credits on such films as “The Art of Getting By” and “At Any Price” — says he was inspired by his father’s own prolonged deterioration from terminal illness. Indeed, it seems clear that “Lullaby,” which centers on a musician who returns home to bid his dad farewell after a period of estrangement from the family, is at least somewhat autobiographically inspired.

Interview: Emma Roberts Talks 'Adult World,' Working With John Cusack & More

At just 23, Emma Roberts (“It's Kind of a Funny Story,” “The Art of Getting By,” “Celeste and Jesse Forever”) is about the same age her aunt Julia was when she shot to stardom with the iconic hit “Pretty Woman.” But times have changed, and in Emma’s latest rom-com — Scott Coffey’s “Adult World,” which premiered last year at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival — she plays not a hooker with a heart of gold, but a virginal Syracuse graduate. Roberts is Amy, a post-collegiate aspiring poet who lives in snowy upstate New York with her parents; what she lacks in life experience she makes up for in pluck and aspiration. Her inability to be self-sufficient will feel familiar to a lot of 20-somethings, as today’s economy has created a state of delayed adulthood; coming-of-age so rarely happens at 18 anymore. When Amy’s parents pull the financial plug on her dreams

Emma Roberts Reveals 'Ahs: Coven' Secrets & Lies

Emma Roberts Reveals 'Ahs: Coven' Secrets & Lies
History has taught us that the transition from child star to adult actor is one of Hollywood's toughest professional hurdles, but Emma Roberts is making that evolution look effortless with wonderfully complex roles in It's Kind of a Funny Story, Scream 4, The Art of Getting By and Celeste & Jesse. Although it seems that those projects were simply set-ups for her greatest performance to date: as the wickedly wonderful Madison Montgomery on American Horror Story: Coven.

From her first vitriol-laced barb, it was clear that both the actress and her creation were not to be trifled with. Subsequent episodes have given Emma room to evolve Madison into more than your garden variety bitch as she's slyly infused all of her most venomous moments with an unmistakable insecurity and breathed luxurious lethargy into Madison's recent resurrection.

I caught up with Emma Roberts in anticipation of tonight's mid-season finale (titled Head in honor of Madame Lalaurie's decapitated dome) that

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Sept. 17, 2013

Price: DVD $44.98, Blu-ray $49.98

Studio: Universal Studios Home Entertainment

Creator Anthony Cipriano (Twelve and Holding) imagines what Norman Bates’ life was like before Psycho in the TV show Bates Motel.

A&E’s horror series serves as a prequel to Hitchcock’s 1960 thriller. Freddie Highmore (The Art of Getting By) plays young Norman, who’s moved to White Pine Bay, Oregon, by his mother, Norma Louise Bates (Vera Farmiga, Safe House) six months after his father dies. They take over a small rundown motel that had fallen into foreclosure.

Mother and son are drawn together while things go from bad to worse. The former owner (W. Earl Brown, The Lone Ranger) of the motel threatens them, Norman’s older half-brother (Max Thierott, My Soul to Take) comes into town and causes trouble, and something bad is going on with Deputy Sheriff Shelby (Mike Vogel, TV’s

Bates Motel’s Freddie Highmore on Playing Young Norman and the Show’s Dark Humor

Bates Motel’s Freddie Highmore on Playing Young Norman and the Show’s Dark Humor
Freddie Highmore has grown up before our eyes. He starred opposite Johnny Depp twice, first in his breakthrough role in Finding Neverland and later as Charlie Bucket in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and then he played a young music prodigy in the sentimental tearjerker August Rush. A few years ago, while beginning his studies in both Arabic and Spanish at Cambridge, he filmed the 2011 Sundance entry The Art of Getting By (formerly Homework) opposite Emma Roberts, a performance that caught the eye of Vera Farmiga, with whom he currently stars in A&E’s Bates Motel (premiering tonight at ten). Vulture recently chatted with Highmore, who just turned 21, about playing a young Norman Bates, filming atop an old dump in Vancouver, and why the comparisons to Twin Peaks are exactly right. (Minor spoilers about the pilot within!)My most vivid memory of you is from quite a while ago.
