Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling made huge names for themselves at Sundance a couple years back with the release of his low budget sci-fi thriller Sound of My Voice. I loved the film, and while it got a small release by Fox Searchlight, not many people saw it in theaters (the horrible title probably didn’t help). It definitely wasn’t a movie for everyone — the story followed a couple who infiltrates a cult run by a leader who claims to be a time traveler from the future, and the execution played on the many mysteries in the same way the television show Lost did, sometimes not offering answers. But underneath it all was a very clever concept and some really good storytelling. Searchlight and Ridley Scott apparently recognized this enough to give them a budget dozens of times larger than their debut.
The East shares some ideas with Sound of My Voice, following someone who goes undercover to infiltrate a cult-like organization. The ever likeable Brit Marling plays Sarah, a new-hire agent for a Washington DC private security film who is tasked to infiltrate an anarchist group calling themselves “The East” (think Project Mayhem from David Fincher’s Fight Club). The film opens on the mansion of the head of a huge oil company which recently spilled gas in the Atlantic, killing a ton of wildlife and polluting the Earth’s waters. The East breaks in and creates their own oil spill all over his home, releasing a video online and making headline news around the world.

In 2012, nitpicking movies became the latest online craze. Everyone got wrapped up in it. Some may blame the movies, but I blame fans with video editing skills who make videos like the ones below.
Three of the year’s most discussed movies – Rian Johnson‘s Looper, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises – are the latest to get “Everything Wrong With In 3-4 Minute” videos from CinemaSins. And while the latter two are mostly warranted, the former is such a stretch, even the director spoke out about it. Check it out below. Read More »

As a producer, Ridley Scott has maintained a strong presence on television with shows like The Good Wife and Numb3rs. As a director, he hasn’t crossed over to the small screen in four decades. That’ll change next year, however, as Scott has just signed on to helm a Showtime drama pilot titled The Vatican. More details after the jump.

Despite the criticism Damon Lindelof received in geek circles after the release of Prometheus, the screenwriter remains in high in demand. So much so, in fact, that he’s not returning for Prometheus 2. This is obviously good news for moviegoers still pissed at Lindelof, who can now look forward to a sequel without its influence. Meanwhile, at least his loyal fans can take comfort in knowing he has lots of other projects on his plate. Read his explanation after the jump.

One of the many projects that Ridley Scott has had in development is based on Joe Haldeman‘s novel The Forever War.
This one has been in the works for a while, with David Webb Peoples (Blade Runner, Unforgiven, 12 Monkeys) writing a few drafts. But now Peoples has been supplanted by Dante Harper. This might actually be a good thing. Why? Because the book revolves around a soldier who is fighting a war against a distant alien race . The enemies are so far away, that soldiers sent out to fight may spend a year in transit and battle, but, due to the mechanics of faster than light travel, return home to an Earth that has aged decades. The time-displaced soldier re-enlists, and ends up spending centuries of Earth time at war in space.
It’s a great concept, and here’s where Harper comes in: he wrote the prime draft of All You Need is Kill, in which a soldier relives the same day of battle many times, and gradually improves his skills as he does so, like a video game player going through the same level over and over. The similarity is pretty evident, I think, and is likely part of the reason Harper is now penning a new draft. Read More »
