Like any year, 2017 has had some truly excellent films, and then it’s also had some stinkers. As we approach the end of the year and enter awards season, get ready for more excellent films. For now, though, here come the summer runoffs – the films studios had no real faith in and dumped at the dead-end of September. Films like the Flatliners remake, which is now sitting at an uncomfortable 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, as the folks at MovieFone were kind enough to point out. Read more about the Flatliners negative reviews below.

flatliners trailer

From producer Michael Douglas comes a remake of Flatliners. Based on Joel Schumacher‘s 1990 film, the premise appears to be more or less the same with some modern touches. It’s a fine movie that doesn’t quite live up to its premise, so unlike a lot of cases, a remake here makes sense. So far, based on the marketing, it doesn’t look like Niels Arden Oplev‘s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) movie is bringing a whole lot new to the table – except for a strong cast.

Flatliners Remake Trailer

If Netflix’s The Discovery wasn’t quite what you were hoping for in a movie that explores what happens after we die, maybe the remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners will make up for it.

Ellen Page (Juno), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), James Norton (Happy Valley) and Kiersey Clemons (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) star in the remake of Joel Schumacher’s film, taking on the roles originated by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. They are five medical students who learn about what lies beyond mortality when they stop each others’ heart for a few minutes at a time before immediately resuscitate them. What starts as an almost indescribable thrill that seems to have a positive impact on their brain slowly turns into a nightmare as they are each haunted by something tragic from their past.

Flatliners Sequel

Just a few weeks ago, the developing Flatliners remake gained an interesting name with Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast. What’s interesting about the addition of Sutherland to the cast is that he starred in the original 1990 cult favorite thriller, and his involvement in the new take on the story opened up the possibility of this being more of a sequel instead of a true remake. Now we seem to have confirmation of as much from Kiefer Sutherland himself. Find out what the actor had to say about the Flatliners sequel after the jump. Read More »

Into the Forest Trailer

Ellen Page has already faced the end of the world as we know it as a mutant in both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now she and Evan Rachel Wood will have to deal with humanity turning on itself in the isolated, quiet apocalyptic thriller Into the Forest.

The film from director Patricia Rozema premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and now it’s coming to theaters and VOD this summer. For all the apocalyptic thrillers that are out there, this one takes a more isolated, intimate approach to the idea of humanity falling apart in the wake of power outages, gas and food shortages and sheer desperation to survive.

Ellen Page Flatliners remake

Ellen Page may be this generation’s Julia Roberts. The Freeheld star could lead a remake of Roberts’ 1990 sci-fi thriller Flatliners, about a group of medical students who experiment with near-death experiences. (Because what could possibly go wrong?) Niels Arden Oplev, of the Swedish The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo adaptation, is directing.

Freeheld trailer

Film can be at the forefront of social movements with stories reflecting the changes and progress in society . This year is no different with the transgender drama About Ray starring Elle Fanning (which The Weinstein Company abruptly delayed this week) and the recently debuted gay rights drama Freeheld starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page.

Based on the documentary of the same name, the drama follows a New Jersey couple, Laurel and Stacie (Moore and Page) who are forced to fight for their legal rights. Laurel is diagnosed with cancer and has to battle county officials in order to make sure her pension will end up in the hands of her partner Stacie.

Hot on the heels of a debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, a new Freeheld trailer has arrived, driven by a new ballad by chart-topping singer Miley Cyrus. Read More »
