IMAX VR Centre - Reception

With movie theater ticket sales in decline and the piracy still on the rise for home video, Hollywood is looking towards virtual reality as another avenue for the entertainment dollar. And IMAX wants in on the ground floor, announcing last year that they would be opening six IMAX VR Centres in 2017. On Tuesday morning, I visited the first IMAX VR Centre located in Los Angeles, hoping to get a glimpse of the future of immersive entertainment.

life super bowl spot

Life has looked intriguing since its first trailer, which felt an awful lot like Alien and Gravity got shoved into that faulty teleportation pod from The Fly. You can see the DNA of both movies present here: extraterrestrial life is discovered, it’s not very nice, and everyone unfortunate enough to be near it must fight to survive the ensuing science fiction calamity on board the International Space Station.

While this film looks like more of a claustrophobic thriller than anything else, Columbia must have a certain amount of faith in it – they’ve laid out the cash for a proper Life Super Bowl spot and it’s effective stuff. The arrival of the spot announces the arrival of a new trailer, which you can also watch below.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Enemy

Mars is attracting white-hot stars. Rebecca Ferguson was the first to sign on for Daniel Espinosa‘s sci-fi thriller Life, hot on the heels of her breakout role in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and Ryan Reynoldscasting was revealed just days after Deadpool‘s record-breaking opening weekend. Now it’s sucked Jake Gyllenhaal into its orbit as well. Whatever else this movie has going for or against it, that cast alone makes Life worth a look.  Read More »

Ryan Reynolds in Safe House

You’ve got to hand it to Ryan Reynolds for sticking around as long as he has. His resume is littered with expensive stinkers that might’ve sunk a less talented or less charismatic actor, from X-Men Origins: Wolverine to Green Lantern to R.I.P.D. But not only has he managed to bounce back each time, he’s hotter than ever this week thanks to the record-breaking success of Deadpool.

So now that Deadpool has put him back at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list, what’s his next move? Apparently, reuniting with some of the folks who made Deadpool happen in the first place. And we’re not just talking for Deadpool 2. He’s joining forces with Deadpool screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese for Life, a sci-fi adventure also starring Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation breakout Rebecca FergusonDaniel Espinosa, who previously worked with Reynolds on Safe House, is directing.  Read More »

Rebecca Ferguson Movie

Last summer, Rebecca Ferguson became the actress everyone wanted for their movies after proving to be a tough, sexy spy in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. She’s got plenty of projects coming out over the next couple of years, and now she’s lined up a sci-fi project that will reunite her with the Mission: Impossible producers.

Rebecca Ferguson has been set to star in Life, a sci-fi flick set up at Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg producing along with Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn. And the good news is that it’s an original sci-fi story, not an adaptation or a remake. Find out more about the new Rebecca Ferguson movie below. Read More »

Life trailer

Anton Corbijn‘s Life has been flying under-the-radar the past few months. We saw a trailer for the film back in August, but Corbijn’s bio film didn’t generate much love or awards talk at any festivals. Then again, the director’s second feature film, The American, was hidden from critics and loathed by plenty of moviegoers, and that movie is a terrifically sparse thriller. Corbijn is taking on a very different story with his newest film, though.

Watch the Life trailer after the jump.

Life trailer

Dane DeHaan plays James Dean in the first trailer for Anton Corbijn‘s Life, alongside Robert Pattinson as the Life magazine photographer sent to profile him.

The premise is not unlike that of the recent David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour: the two embark on a road trip just as the tragically short-lived superstar is beginning his ascent, revealing and rediscovering themselves along the way. Watch the Life trailer after the jump. Read More »

Dane DeHaan James Dean

Dane DeHaan has played some pretty meaty roles over the course of his career, but he has particularly big shoes to fill in Life. The Anton Corbijn-directed drama stars DeHaan as silver screen legend James Dean, opposite Robert Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock.

Until the movie actually opens, we won’t know whether DeHaan does a capable job of capturing Dean’s vital essence. But now that the first still has hit the web, we can at least gauge whether he looks the part. See the photo and judge for yourself after the jump.

Dane DeHaan / Robert Pattinson

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan plays Harry Osborn, a role previously played by James Franco in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. In Anton Corbijn‘s Life, he’ll follow even further in Franco’s footsteps by picking up another of his old characters: James Dean.

DeHaan and Twilight star Robert Pattinson have joined the fact-based drama, which chronicles the friendship between the Rebel Without a Cause actor and photographer Dennis Stock. The two became close when they took a road trip together in 1955 for a Life magazine article. Hit the jump for more details.
