Trespass Against Us trailer

Before you watch Michael Fassbender play a man descended from a long line of assassins, how about watching Michael Fassbender as a man descended from a long line of low-level criminals? The actor recently hit TIFF with Trespass Against Us, which chronicles three generations of a criminal family in the British countryside.

Brendon Gleeson plays patriarch Colby, who’s alternately charming and intimidating, while Fassbender plays his son Chad. Father and son don’t always see eye to eye, but their tensions really boil over when Chad decides he wants out of the family lifestyle for the sake of his son, young Tyson (Georgie Smith). Trespass Against Us is the feature directing debut of Adam Smith, whose work you may have seen on the British show Skins and Doctor Who. Smith also shot a documentary for the Chemical Brothers, who have returned the favor by scoring Trespass Against Us. Watch the Trespass Against Us trailer below.  Read More »

Walt Disney's The Florida Project

At the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, I sat in the library theater for the premiere of an ultra low budget film titled Tangerine. Filmmaker Sean Baker‘s Duplass Brothers-produced dramedy told the story of a transgender working girl searching Hollywood on Christmas Eve for the pimp who broke her heart. The film surprised the crowd with its heart and comedy, but the big shock came after the screening when the director revealed that the whole film was shot on an iPhone 5s.

The film has been namedropped by big filmmakers like JJ Abrams, and a lot of people have been interested to find out what Baker would be doing next. In April it was revealed that Baker had found his next movie, a film called The Florida Project. The title actually refers to Orlando Florida’s Disney World. Disney fanatics probably know that when Walt Disney first started buying up land and planning Disney World, the theme park plans was referred to it as “The Florida Project.”

new Mark Wahlberg projects

Mark Wahlberg has been on a roll with director Peter Berg, but a few years before the two started working together, Wahlberg was known more for his creative partnership with David O. Russell. The actor had a hand in the director’s big comeback with The Fighter, but after that drama, the two have yet to make another film together. That may change soon, though, since Wahlberg is now working with Russell on a biopic about Father Stuart Long.

There’s also another new Mark Wahlberg project in the works involving LeBron James. Below, learn more about these new Mark Wahlberg projects.

hearts in atlantis

Just when you thought they were done announcing new adaptations of Stephen King stories, a few more drop out of the sky. Earlier today, we learned that The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass would be adapted as a television companion to the first The Dark Tower movie arriving next year. And now, King’s Hearts in Atlantis is coming to the big screen. Again. Sort of. In terms of titles, this is going to be one of the trickier King adaptions to explain.

This Is Us

I hadn’t initially planned on seeing This Is Us, Dan Fogelman’s new NBC drama. The billboards and advertising plastered around Los Angeles made it look uninteresting. I’m not against television dramas, I loved Parenthood and Friday Night Lights (although the advertising for those shows didn’t interest me either, it was the buzz from friends that brought me to them). And then the This Is Us reviews came out just before its premiere teasing a big unexpected twist at the end of the pilot episode. Okay, you got me. So I watched it and I have a few thoughts on the matter. Also, Dan Fogelman has done some interviews explaining what the twist will mean for the rest of the series, so if you’re curious about that, join me.

Allied spot

Unless you’ve spent the entire day sleeping under a rock at the bottom of the ocean, you’ve probably heard that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are over. And unless you’ve also spent the past decade-plus sleeping under that same rock, you probably recall that rumors about that relationship first began around the release of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Anyway, on a completely unrelated note, Paramount has dropped a new spot for their upcoming film Allied, a spy thriller starring Pitt that basically looks like Mr. & Mrs. Smith as a World War II drama. Watch the Allied trailer below.  Read More »

toy wars tv series

If this doesn’t sound like a television series made just for me, then I don’t know what does. Actor/writer Josh Gad (Frozen, Jobs) will be co-writing and star in a new limited television series set up at Amazon called Toy Wars. The story follows the real-life battle between American toy giants Hasbro and Mattel in the 1980s and 1990s. Ryan Dixon (Triplets, Curious George) is attached to co-write with Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Gossip Girl, Chuck), who will be the showrunner for the series with The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters director Seth Gordon expected to direct the pilot episode. Hit the jump to learn more.
