If nothing else, Maggie deserves credit for approaching zombies from a whole new angle. While the angst of watching a loved one get infected is a common trope of the genre, it is rarely if ever the main focus of a zombie movie. But as Maggie shows, it’s a premise with great potential. Unfortunately, Maggie also shows there are many ways to sell that potential short. Read More »

There aren’t many actors who could be trusted to carry an entire feature film by themselves, but David Oyelowo is one of the special few. Following his exceptional (and sadly overlooked by awards) performance in Selma, Oyelowo leads the one-man show Nightingale for HBO.
At the center of the story is Peter Snowden, a war veteran spiraling out of control. In the aftermath of a terrible event, he desperately tries to reconnect with an old friend. Watch the Nightingale trailer after the jump. Read More »
There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.
See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season. Read More »
After chronicling the love lives of romantically ambivalent men from every conceivable angle, Judd Apatow is branching out this year by chronicling the love life of a romantically ambivalent woman in Trainwreck. Now his latest new project will take him much further afield, all the way to the front lines of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.
Apatow is currently working on an adaptation of Redeployment*, Phil Klay‘s National Book Award-winning short story collection about American soldiers at war and at home. More on the Judd Apatow Redeployment movie after the jump.
* Update: To clarify, Apatow calls his new movie with Klay “an original screenplay.” However, it’s clear the project has very similar themes as Redeployment even if it isn’t a direct adaptation. Original story follows.

I wouldn’t blame you if you see a headline about a Jimi Hendrix movie and wonder if there have already been several. In fact, a couple have wound through development for years, but the only one to really make it through to theaters was Jimi: All Is By My Side, the “early years” film starring Andrew Benjamin (in a good performance) as Hendrix.
One of the films that never was had Legendary Entertainment as its prime motivator, with Paul Greengrass set to direct. But Legendary couldn’t get the rights to Hendrix’s music, and without the participation of the estate Legendary decided not to make the film. Now, years later, a rights package is in place that gives Legendary use of all of Hendrix’s best-known songs, and so the film is back on, with Greengrass once again looking like the director.
