Jeremy Saulnier‘s Green Room is the cinematic equivalent of getting your face bashed in. In a good way, of course.

Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.
The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

Moving on from a bad relationship is tough even under the best circumstances. It’s infinitely more difficult when your ex comes back as a zombie determined to sabotage your rebound relationship and/or eat you alive. That’s what happens in Burying the Ex, Joe Dante‘s first film since 2009’s The Hole.
Anton Yelchin plays hapless Max, whose relationship with Evelyn (Ashley Greene) has gone downhill. Just as he musters up the courage to dump her, she dies in a freak accident. Max subsequently gets involved with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), only to discover soon afterward that Evelyn’s back from the dead and eager to rekindle their romance. Watch the new Burying the Ex trailer after the jump. Read More »

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Spider-Man is coming to the MCU. But the powers that be aren’t simply merging Sony’s existing Spider-Man franchise with the Marvel movies — no, this is going to be a whole new Spider-Man, which means the webslinging role is up for grabs again.
Marvel and Sony have yet to reveal whom they want to put on the Spidey mask, but while they mull it over we’ve got some ideas for them. After the jump, run down our new Spider-Man casting wishlist. Read More »
Jeremy Saulnier is putting together the follow-up to his excellent thriller Blue Ruin, and he’s got a cast that makes the film an instant lock to see. Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots all star in Green Room, which Saulnier wrote and will direct. But it’s the most recent addition that will probably get your attention. Patrick Stewart has joined the cast to play the leader of a bunch of “white power skinheads.” Read More »
Yesterday we saw the trailer for Dying of the Light, the new film directed by Paul Schrader from his own script, with Nicolas Cage and Anton Yelchin starring as intelligence agents. But there’s some troubled backstory to the movie, and it isn’t really Schrader’s film now. He was locked out of the edit as the producers took over final cut and added their own score. Nicolas Winding Refn, who is on the film as exec producer, called the process “artistic disrespect.” Now the creators have lodged a creative Dying of the Light protest.
Schrader can’t talk about it because of the non-disparagement clause in his contract. So he, Refn, and his stars have posed wearing shirts bearing the text of that contract. Those images accompany a statement from the director, released today. Read More »
In Dying of the Light Nicolas Cage plays an intelligence agent who wants to do something worth remembering. Based on the Dying of the Light trailer, Nic Cage may not achieve the same thing in this movie.
We’ve followed the film’s strange history for a while: scripted by Paul Schrader, Dying of the Light was originally going to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, with Harrison Ford in the lead. But Ford and Refn had creative differences and that version fell apart. Eventually Schrader directed the film with Cage starring and Refn acting as exec producer. But there has been conflict between Schrader and the film’s primary producers, resulting in a final edit that does not involve the director. Check out the trailer below to see a representation of what will hit theaters in December. Read More »
