Middle School Trailer

After delivering the bumbling comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop, director Steve Carr is heading into the world of young adults with an Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the book of the same name by James Patterson. With flairs of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matilda and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the film looks like it’s perfectly geared towards the target audience who read the books, but with some familiar comedic talent to make it a little more appealing to adults.

Denial Trailer

Right now you can see Rachel Weisz starring alongside Colin Farrell in The Lobster, a darkly hilarious romance that is truly original and is best seen knowing as little as possible about the story. But later this year, she’ll bring a true story to life in the form of a Holocaust-centric drama. However, this one doesn’t take place in the heart of World War II.

Denial adapts the true story from Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, and as the title of the book indicates, the film follows Rachel Weisz as the author who fought a legal battle against a man (Timothy Spall) who denied that the Holocaust ever happened. It looks like a movie prime for awards contention in good and bad ways.

no one recap

Every season of Game of Thrones has a weak spot or two, a few episodes where the wheel-spinning becomes a little obvious and transparent. While important things occurred in “No One,” this was undeniably the slowest episode of the show’s sixth season, an hour that pumped the brakes on plot in a big way. To be fair, the episode responded by providing more than its fair share of character development and humor, but it’s fairly obvious that this is intended to be the calm before the storm, the hour where a lot of business gets handled before all hell breaks loose next week.

Let’s sort through that business and discuss what went down.

Chaos Walking Movie

After picking up the rights to the Chaos Walking series of young adult books back in 2011, there has been very little development on getting Patrick Ness‘ bestselling story to the big screen. Adaptation and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind writer Charlie Kaufman was hired to script the project in 2012 and director Robert Zemeckis was circling the film in 2013. But since then, we haven’t heard anything. But that changes today.

Edge of Tomorrow and Mr. and Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman is currently in talks to direct Chaos Walking, which is still set up at Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment. Find out more about the Chaos Walking movie after the jump. Read More »
