#99HOMES Opens In Los Angeles On OCTOBER 2nd

NEW LOS ANGELES OPENING DATE IS NOW OCTOBER 2nd and OPENING ON SEPTEMBER 25th in New York at Lincoln Square and Angelika.

In this timely thriller, charismatic and ruthless businessman, Rick Carver (Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon), is making a killing by repossessing homes - gaming the real estate market, Wall Street banks and the US government. When he evicts Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield), a single father trying to care for his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and young son (newcomer Noah Lomax), Nash becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for Carver – the very man who evicted him in the first place.
Carver promises Nash a way to regain his home and earn security for his family, but slyly seduces him into a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost - on Carver's orders, Nash must evict families from their homes. As Nash falls deeper into Carver's web,…

Movie Review: 'Captive'

The religious thriller Captive looks like a Lifetime drama squeezed into Oprah bible commercial.
Review by Matt Cummings
In Director Jerry Jameson's thriller Captive, Ashley (Kate Mara) is a struggling addict who has recently regained custody of her baby daughter. Suffering from a string of failed rehabs, this is Ashley's last chance to reset her self-destructive path before the State steps in. Unfortunately, fate intercedes when the escaped murderer Brian Nichols (David Oyelowo) takes her captive as the police desperately search for him. It's here that the two form an unlikely friendship around pastor Rick Warren’s best-selling book “The Purpose Driven Life,” which Ashley reluctantly begins to read to pass the time. As the police close in, the two must decide if the book's message is worthy of further study, or if they're destined to live shortened, tragic lives.

Unfortunately, Captive never rises above its terse and tragic potential, content instead to mir…

Movie Review: 'Black Mass'

Is the slow-burn gangster flick Black Mass worthy of recent Oscar talk? Read on to find out!
Review by Matt Cummings
For all the hype that 2015 has promised in terms of box office performance, we've experienced very little in the way of Oscar contenders. Usually, that arrives in October and barrels through Christmas with all the elegance of a load hauler. In a year that's seen more Oscar bait than catch, Black Mass arrives with a bat, a gun, and a terrific performance by Depp who feels like he's about to use both on us.

James “Whitey” Bulger (Depp) is everything that encompasses a good Boston gangster: a receding hairline and sharp steely eyes that give nothing away as to how vicious a leader he really is. Starting in 1975, Bulger begins his rise as leader of the Winter Hill Gang, a troupe of hard-hitting Italians and Irish boys looking to carve out their place in the difficult but loyal South Boston streets. Enter the rising FBI star John Connolly (Joel Edgerton),…

Movie Review: 'Pawn Sacrifice'

The well-acted but dull Pawn Sacrifice does nothing to the elevate the game of chess.
Review by Matt Cummings
The game of chess is more than the strategy on the board, but the war going on inside the minds of the opponents. Analyzing moves and counter moves is just part of the neuroses which makes a chessmaster, sometimes resulting in odd quirks and even destructive psychological disorders. And while the Bobby Fischer biopic Pawn Sacrifice encapsulates some of that into a professional production, it relies too much on the personal struggles which its players endure, rather than balancing it with the brilliance of the game.

Arguably the greatest chess player in the world, Prospect Heights-born Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maquire) is also its loudest. Raised in a Communist household at the height of The Red Scare, a young Fischer turns to chess as a way to calm his distracted mind. But controversy and disappointment are never far behind, as years later he loses a vital match against a te…

Bryan Singer To Direct 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

In keeping with his tradition of handling his own PR through social media, Bryan Singer has announced his next film via his Instagram account. According to the director, he’s planning an adaptation of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

It’s certainly an ambitious project, and one that has defeated the likes of McG and, most famously in recent years, David Fincher. The latter got as far as trying to land Brad Pitt for the lead and locking down Australian studio space and locations for his take on the adventure tale with a script by Andrew Kevin Walker.

Now Singer – no stranger to big films following the likes of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and its incoming follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – has a screenplay written by Rick Sordelet and Jack The Giant Slayer’s Dan Studney based on a story by the director and his writers. And, of course, drawing from Verne’s novel, which features the temperamental Captain Nemo and his giant sub the Nautilus, which has been brought to the screen sever…

Taken Prequel Headed To TV

Luc Besson is revisiting Taken with NBC.

The network on Thursday handed out a straight-to-series order for a drama prequel based on the 2008 action thriller written by Besson, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The drama hails from Universal Television and EuropaCorp, which produced the Liam Neeson feature film that helped transform the actor into an action star. There is no writer or showrunner attached to the reboot, though a search is underway. Also undetermined is the number of episodes that the Taken prequel will feature.

The original film starred Neeson as Bryan Mills, a retired CIA operative on a mission to save his daughter. NBC's modern-day prequel would focus on how a young Bryan honed his skills and became the character depicted in the feature.

The Taken prequel comes as IP — including features and TV series — have been hot commodities across broadcast and cable networks amid an increasingly cluttered original programming landscape. This development season, Fox is t…

Movie Review: Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

If you liked the first one, you'll love its sequel. By: Sue Lukenbaugh

The Gladers return for another harrowing experience. The first Maze Runner opened up with an amnesiac Thomas waking in an elevator, which is shortly relived in the sequel, and being thrust into an enclosed glade completely disrupting the other Gladers lives. Outside their safe walls is a mysterious and deadly maze as their sole means of escape. They thought that it was all over when they escaped the maze, but they couldn't have been more wrong, heck they should have stayed in the maze. What awaits them on the outside is far worse than the Grievers in the maze picking off the unlucky few. Out of the frying pan, and into the scorch, Thomas and crew head for the next chapter in the Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.



The film picks up where the second one ended. Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), and his companions Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), Minho (Ki Hong Lee), Frypan (Dexter Darden), Winston (Alexander Flores), and T…

Movie Review: Everest

Mountain film has a molehill of dramatic stakes.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
In May of 1996, a large collection of climbers attempted to scale the perilous heights of Mount Everest. Led by expedition leader, New Zealander Rob Hall (Jason Clarke), most of the party were experienced climbers, including Beck Weathers (Josh Brolin) a doctor embarking on a personal mission to climb the Seven Summits, and Doug Hansen (John Hawkes), a mailman who had made a previous run at Everest the year before. Rob’s group also consisted of a journalist, Jon Krakauer (Michael Kelly), on assignment to document the voyage. A parallel climbing party, led by Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal), forged an uneasy alliance with Rob’s to increase overall safety with greater numbers. Back at base camp is Helen Wilton (Emily Watson), running Rob’s operation from a safer distance, while Rob’s pregnant wife Jan (Keira Knightley) wisely stays home, confident in her husband’s expertise keeping him safe.

#PacificRim2 May Not Happen Now

According to THR Legendary wanted to produce a sequel to del Toro's Pacific Rim, which was made under the Warners deal and turned into one of those films that grosses a lot ($411 million worldwide) while being so costly that a follow-up isn't a sure thing. Sources say Legendary liked that the original performed exceptionally well in China, where the company is heavily invested, but for now the project — which had been ramping up to make a release date in August 2017 — has been halted indefinitely and will be pushed back (if it gets made at all).

Universal Pictures' decision last week to let Thomas Tull's Legendary Pictures take its Kong: Skull Island project to Warner Bros. in the midst of a five-year production and financing deal is being read as a symptom of relationship trouble between the companies.

Several sources say there has been strain, in part because Tull kicked off the deal in 2014 with a couple of clunkers that he put through Universal's distribution …
