Miles Teller is doing a movie with Marc Webb. The Amazing Spider-Man director has balanced a commitment to Fox Searchlight and the desire to do other indies with his work for Sony. Now he’s prepping a return to the indie scene with The Only Living Boy in New York, about a young man who gets involved with the same woman his father is having an affair with. The Whiplash star is going to rock the lead role. Read More »

Oftentimes sequels are just more of the same, but at least we know for sure The Divergent Series: Insurgent will differ from its predecessor in one key way. Lionsgate/Summit announced today the dystopian action sequel will open in 3D. To celebrate that news, the studio is releasing eight “interactive 3D character posters” throughout the day.
After the jump, get the details on The Divergent Series: Insurgent 3D release, and check out The Divergent Series: Insurgent character posters.

As the domineering music conservatory teacher at the center of Whiplash, J.K. Simmons spews vile, mean, even brutal dialogue. Most of it is aimed at the the young drummer and would-be jazz great played by Miles Teller. Is the teacher just using a bit of old-school motivation, or is he really out of his mind? The guy’s propensity to throw things suggests the latter, but the student isn’t exactly balanced either. Each drives the other a little further over the edge.
This Whiplash international trailer isn’t rated “red” by the MPAA, because it comes out of France rather than the US. But it does feature some of the cursing Simmons spits at Teller. This is just the barest hint of how ugly he gets, though. Seriously, if you’re a fan of Simmons, especially when he shows his mean side, this movie is an absolute must-see. Read More »

As the maxim goes, if at first you don’t succeed, then try, try again. Miles Teller has already debuted one hookup romcom this year, the disastrous That Awkward Moment, and now he’s back with another one titled Two Night Stand.
This one stars Teller and Analeigh Tipton as two strangers who hook up and then get stuck together when a blizzard traps them inside. Jessica Szohr and Kid Cudi star as her friends. Watch the Two Night Stand trailer after the jump.

For a massive superhero reboot, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four had one of the quietest shoots in recent memory. Sure a few photos of the stars leaked here and there, and maybe even a glimpse of the Thing, but for the most part nothing has been spoiled by the press or paparazzi during filming. Which, these days, is a rarity.
So it’s exciting when one of the film’s stars, Kate Mara (who plays the Invisible Woman), jumps on Twitter not only to announce the film is finished, but post a photo of herself with her three co-stars: Mr. Fantastic played by Miles Teller, the Human Torch played by Michael B. Jordan and The Thing played by Jamie Bell.
They’re all in street clothes unfortunately, so no reveal of the Fantastic Four costumes just yet, but it’s a great shot none the less. Check out the Fantastic Four cast photo below. Read More »
J.K. Simmons torments Miles Teller in Whiplash, pushing the kid beyond his breaking point in the name of excellence. Teller plays a young drummer who aspires to greatness; Simmons plays the elite music academy instructor whose teaching methods are anything but gentle. Miss a beat, and he’ll spin a cymbal at your head like Captain America throwing his shield. This great first Whiplash trailer starts to show audiences the situation Teller’s character gets into when he attempts to rise to a level of performance that will satisfy the teacher. Read More »
Miles Teller and Emma Watson are in talks to co-star in a modern-day Los Angeles musical from the red-hot director of Whiplash. That’s a cool sentence. The film is called La La Land and Damien Chazelle will write and direct with Lionsgate attached to distribute. It’ll follow two artistic, romantic Los Angeles residents who fall in love but find the cutthroat nature of the city so brutal on their relationship, they’re pushed into song.

Traditionally, when a movie wins either the Grand Jury and Audience Dramatic Awards at Sundance, it’s meant for big things. Then there are some really special films that win both. Precious and Fruitvale Station are two recent examples. This year’s Sundance opener Whiplash is another.
Directed by Damien Chazelle, Whiplash tells the dramatic story of Andrew (Miles Teller), a highly ambitious young drummer who finds himself under the wing of the most demanding, intimidating and influential music teacher in the country. That’s Terence Fletcher, played by J.K. Simmons. Those dueling passions sets up a battle of the wills as Andrew tries to prove himself for Fletcher, hoping he doesn’t have to face the frightening truth that he’s just not good enough.
You can read Russ’s Sundance review here, but in lieu of a trailer for the October 10 release, the first Whiplash clip has now made it online. In it, you’ll get a sense of the film’s incredible tension and powerful performances. Read More »
