November 2014 Movies on Our Radar

A fun-filled October leads us right into Oscar season, with several satisfying submissions. October 2014 offered a full plate of candy to those who knocked on its door, mixing bonified Oscar candidates with a few downright enjoyable releases. But it also kicked Hollywood out of its complacent August/September disasters with a collection of entertaining films like Gone Girl, Fury, and the very surprising John Wick. November arrives ready to erase the mistakes of months past, but it has a lot of weight to carry. Receipts for the year are down only 3.7% (according to our friends at BoxOfficeMojo.com), and with a few solid blockbusters this month, we think the year's mostly red-inked is about to turn decidedly favorable. Some of these appeared on our MOST ANTICIPATED LIST OF 2014 back in January, and we're certainly excited for their arrival.

The month features militant penguins, an interstellar space traveler, two dumbasses, and three boss haters, all ready to gobble up your…

Before I Go to Sleep Review: Strong Opening Leads to Underwheliming Ending

Before I Go to Sleep has all the elements of a successful thriller, but fails at key points to put them together.

WARNING: This review contains spoilers. For Actors Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, 2014 has already seen them in the engrossing but poorly-placed The Railway Man; with Before I Go to Sleep, the British duo prove they work well together, even if their film loses steam after a good opening.

For Christine (Kidman) every day is literally a new one; suffering from amnesia brought about by an unknown injury, she wakes up each morning without any knowledge of who she is. Her husband Ben (Firth) has tried for years to help her by placing pictures and Post-it Notes of her former life throughout the house. Confused and frightened, she receives a phone call each morning from her doctor (Mark Strong) who has encouraged her to use a camera to remind her future self of her past. However, new details begin to emerge that test Christine's sanity and even the motives of those clos…

Overeducated and underemployed, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) is in the throes of a quarterlife crisis. Squarely into adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to think about her future and no one to relate to, Megan is comfortable lagging a few steps behind – while her friends check off milestones and celebrate their new grown-up status. When her high-school sweetheart (Mark Webber) proposes, Megan panics and– given an unexpected opportunity to escape for a week – hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell).

ABCs OF DEATH 2 Opening Animated Sequence

To celebrate Halloween and the theatrical opening of ABCs OF DEATH 2 today, we have two horrific pieces of content to share.

The first is the very cool and creepy animated opening title sequence from the film. The animation was done by Wolfgang Matzl with paper cutouts. Music composed by Andre Roessler.



ABCs OF DEATH 2 is the follow-up to the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning from Nigeria to UK to Brazil and everywhere in between. It features segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. The film is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational, ABCs OF DEATH 2 is another
global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking.

Kelly Reilly Joins True Detective Season 2

The cast for the second season of True Detective is several steps closer to completion. Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn are confirmed (and Taylor Kitsch said recently that his deal is done), and now the show has added yet more names, with Kelly Reilly, Michael Irby, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin all reportedly signing on.

Set in California locales, and once more written by Nic Pizzolatto, the new season sees Farrell as Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. Rachel McAdams is reported to be close to a deal to play police detective Ani Bezzerides.

Irby is playing Elvis Ilinca, McAdams’ police partner, but the other new arrivals’ roles are shrouded in secrecy for now. Justin Lin is set to direct the first two of what wi…

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies First Look

Until recently, the adaptation of Seth Graeme-Smith’s Jane Austen-meets-horror genre-mash book Pride And Prejudice And Zombies spent its time lurking in development limbo. But thanks to finally locking in a script and a director (Burr Steers) and a rash of casting, it’s in production and Entertainment Weekly has grabbed a first look image.

The picture shows the Bennett sisters Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) tooled up and ready to fight the “Sorry Stricken”, AKA the risen dead, who cause trouble for the family. And they thought finding marriageable mates was hard enough…

Still, they’re clearly all ready for combat, particularly our heroine, Elizabeth. “Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women,” she tells EW. “She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.”

With Steers re-writing a script that has been through the word processor o…

Seth Rogen To Play Steve Wozniak Opposite Christian Bale

Seth Rogen is being eyed to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak opposite Christian Bale in Sony's Steve Jobs movie, while Jessica Chastain is also being sought for a role in the film, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Danny Boyle is directing the film — which is not a traditional biopic — from a script by Aaron Sorkin, who had access to Jobs’ authorized biography by Walter Isaacson.

The film is expected to follow Jobs during three stressful, high-profile product launches including the first Macintosh in 1984 and Apple's 2001 debut of the iPod.

While neither Chastain nor Rogen have deals in place, the latter actor is in talks to play Wozniak, who created the Apple I computer and co-created the Apple II computer in the mid-1970s.

Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing the film, which Sony has high hopes for, as it could be a major awards contender.

Rogen has proved himself more than capable of handling dramatic roles with his perf…

Birdman Review: Don't Listen to the Hype

Michael Keaton's Birdman is one part bore-fest and two parts "Why did I agree to see this?"
Warning: This review contains MAJOR SPOILERS. In Birdman, Michael Keaton plays Riggan Thomson, a washed-up actor who once played a flying comic book hero named Birdman, but whose recent exploits have landed him on Broadway. Riggan is also trying to ignore the character bulls eye that once garnered him millions but left him emotionally empty; now, he's funding his own production of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love and desperate to be taken seriously. His cast includes the one seeking similar Hollywood cred (Naomi Watts) and his on-again/off-again fuckbuddy (Andrea Riseborough). But when the show loses one of its actors, his pretentious replacement (Edward Norton) starts to undo Riggan's comeback, leaving his post-rehab daughter (Emma Stone) to question his intentions and sanity, while his lawyer (Zach Galifianakis) tries to keep the lights o…

#TERMINATORGENISYS Uneventful Images

New images from TERMINATOR GENISYS and to be honest I am not impressed with the images at all. But I still have hope for the film.


See all the images after the Jump...







The filmmakers plan to re-create the memorable scene in the original ­Terminator when the T-800 lands at L.A.’s Griffith ­Observatory, complete with Schwarzenegger’s 36-year-old face and ripped, naked body. To achieve that, the special-effects team has created a “synthespian,” or synthetic thespian, using a body double plus scans of Schwarz­enegger’s face from the first film merged with what his face looks like now. The result: an entirely CG head of the Terminator circa 1984.
The filmmakers are counting on that technology, and the movie’s villain—a man/machine hybrid they’re keeping under wraps—to be visual game changers.
