Moonrise Kingdom Movie Review One Of The Best Films Of The Year

Moonrise Kingdom Movie Review By: Matt C Moonrise Kingdom is uniquely quirky, captivating, and one of best the films of the year. The central theme to Moonrise Kingdom is the danger inherent in labeling certain elements of society as strange or even dangerous without looking a little deeper. Yet the film is so much more than a simple soapbox statement: it's genuinely funny, incredibly honest about itself, existing in a world that feels both familiar and a little off center, much like its main characters. Set among the pine and maple trees on a fictitious 1965 New England island called New Penzance, two children ( Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman ) decide to run away, rejecting the small-town labels they've been given, and touching off a manhunt by the police and local scout master. The journey is the truly funny part, immersing the audience in a perfect mixture of droll humor and slapstick, starting with our Narrator ( Bob Balaban , 2010) as he lists off the nature of the i

Sequel To Snow White And The Huntsman Being Written

Studios are relying heavily on sequels this summer, but the toughest thing to do is to introduce something new that launches a franchise. It looks like Universal has done that with Snow White And The Huntsman . I’m told that the studio is making all the moves that indicate another chapter is in the offing, and on a fast track. SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN Review By: Matt C Universal commenced David Koepp to write the sequel script, which Deadline revealed in late April might happen. The studio is now talking with director Rupert Sanders about a return, after he made his feature directing debut on the first installment. Sanders is interested; he had a great time making the first movie. But unlike most first time directors, he doesn’t have to come back. That’s because Snow White And The Huntsman was sold in an auction by CAA that included a presentation by Sanders of how he was going to shoot the film. Sanders was part of the package, as was producer Joe Roth, and that gave the agen

Lego The Movie Has Found It's Directors

Empire recently spoke to Phil Lord and Chris Miller , the directorial double act behind Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street , about the latter's upcoming home release. And naturally their possible adaptation of the much-loved novel Carter Beats The Devil came up pretty swiftly... as did their work on Lego The Movie . Talking about Carter Beats The Devil , Lord was keen to point out that "it’s very early. There’s a good script: we’ve read a lot of material since Jump Street, and this was the first thing that felt intriguing, and so we’re literally just starting to talk about it. We’re deep in the LEGO bunker right now, so when we come up for air in a couple of months’ time, we’ll get more serious talking about that could be." Then began the Lego discussion. And the good news for fans of the Danish plastic bricks is that their plans for turning building blocks into cinematic building blocks are rather encouraging. Where do you begin when you’re m

Emma Watson Could Star In "Noah"

Emma Watson is in talks to join Darren Aronofsky’s cast of Noah , which stars Russell Crowe as the Biblical ark builder.

2 DAYS IN NEW YORK Poster And Release Date

Check out the official poster for 2 DAYS IN NEW YORK , starring Julie Delpy and Chris Rock . Marion and Mingus live cozily—perhaps too cozily—with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion’s jolly father (played by director Delpy’s real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister’s outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus’s relationship. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters...and no person is left unscathed in its wake. Directed and cowritten by Delpy, 2 Days in New York is a deliciously witty romp. One of the pleasures of this follow-up film to 2 Days in Paris is the addition of Chris Rock, who—amid the Gallic mayhem—convincingly plays the straight man as Marion’s hipster American boyfriend. With great skill and energy, Delpy heightens cultural differences to comedi

Prometheus Movie Review By Matt C

Prometheus Movie Review By: Matt C When you put a list together of the most influential directors of all time, Ridley Scott has to be near or at the top. Known for two of the greatest science fiction films of all time ( Alien and Blade Runner ), Scott created worlds far from each other, but both rooted in very similar and familiar principles. From the clean white walls of his starships, to the gritty, greasy, well-worn environment behind them, his universe is filled with the very real world ills of corporate greed and the despicable people tasked with running them. In many ways, he has envisioned a future that's more practical and possible than of Star Trek and Star Wars , but not one that's comfortable to watch. Other directors have followed suit, each with varying levels of success; in fact, one cannot list a science fiction film from the past 30 years that doesn't pay homage in some way to Scott's 'worn universe.' It's with this sort of impressive

True Blood Season 5. Things You Need To Know

It’s been a long wait, but True Blood finally returns for its fifth season on Sunday. When we last saw the residents of Bon Temps, many of them were suffering from serious threats from supernatural forces. Bill ( Stephen Moyer ) and Eric ( Alexander Skarsgard ) had just killed off Nan Flanagan ( Jessica Tuck ), a member of the Vampire Authority. Jason Stackhouse ( Ryan Kwanten ) was in a fight with his best friend Hoyt ( Jim Parrack ) after he slept with Hoyt’s vampire ex-girlfriend, Jessica ( Deborah Ann Woll ). Sam (Sam Trammell ) had been cornered by a group of angry-looking werewolves (is there any other kind?). And finally, Terry ( Todd Lowe ) had a surprise visit from a Marine buddy ( Scott Foley ) -- and we all know that in Bon Temps, visitors usually mean trouble. With so many loose ends after season 4, fans are anxiously awaiting the premiere of season 5 on June 10. But why wait that long? The Hollywood Reporter spoke to the stars of the vampire drama at the premiere

Michael Bay To Reboot Transformers With New Cast

Even as he guides passion project Pain And Gain through the post-production process, Michael Bay is steeling himself to dive back into the maelstrom that is another Transformers entry. He debated whether or not to step back into the franchise after Dark Of The Moon , but was convinced after Paramount gave him the time and space to make Pain. But according to the director, the fourth adventure with Optimus Prime and the rest will be his last. Speaking with the LA Times as the new Transformers theme park ride opened at Universal Studios in California, Bay dropped a couple of nuggets about the next film, including the fact that there will be some redesigning of the robots and that he’s looking to start with an entirely new cast. The reason for the changes? He’s setting the franchise up so it can be handed to “the next guy.” Of course he’s said things about stopping before and has always been tempted back, but after four films you can see why he might be ready for new challenges. We

Jamie Foxx Could Be President

No, we do not mean to imply that Jamie Foxx is going to be entering this November’s US Presidential election. He’s simply on the top of White House Down director Roland Emmerich’s wishlist to play POTUS in his new thriller. Emmerich already has Channing Tatum officially aboard to play a Secret Service agent who must do his duty when a paramilitary group overcomes White House security and takes everyone inside hostage. Including, of course, the Commander in Chief, who is not best pleased to suddenly be a prisoner in his own home. Variety reports that negotiations haven’t kicked off yet, but that Foxx is “intrigued” by the chance to play the president. We’re guessing he might want to wait to read James Vanderbilt’s script and interrogate Emmerich about his plans before he even starts up talks. Emmerich is pushing to get Foxx, especially since his thriller will be in competition with the similarly themed White House Taken, which is set to start shooting first, with Gerard Butl
