War on Everyone image

Writer/director John Michael McDonagh is following up Cavalry with a new movie called War on Everyone, featuring Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård in the lead roles. They play “two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.” Now the first image is out for the film, and while McDonagh’s name should be enough to raise your interest, seeing Skarsgård flip us the bird in this War on Everyone image might help.  Read More »

The Divergent Series: Insurgent

 

The dystopian YA trend is still going strong in 2015, with The Divergent Series: Insurgent the first one out of the gate. Shailene Woodley once again plays Tris, a special snowflake with more than one personality trait. That makes her a threat to the corrupt system, run by Jeanine (Kate Winslet).

Joining her once more are Theo James as handsome love interest Four, Miles Teller as mean kid Peter, and Ansel Elgort as Tris’ skeptical brother. Octavia Spencer and Naomi Watts join the cast. Watch The Divergent Series Insurgent final trailer after the jump.

‘Insurgent’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Fights Back

insurgent-trailer

This new Insurgent trailer — possibly the last before the film opens at the end of March — has a lot of new footage, and condenses the sales pitch for the film down to one minute. (My favorite edits!) We see some of the strife that consumes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and a bunch of big effects shots that dress up the proceedings. We also get shots of a lot of the rest of the cast, including Tris’ beau Theo James, and Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer. Read More »

Theo James to Star in New ‘Underworld’ Film

Theo James Underworld 5

Before Theo James smoldered in Divergent, he smoldered in Underworld: Awakening. In the most recent chapter of the fantasy/action series, James played a vampire named David who lent a hand to Kate Beckinsale’s Selene. Now a new Underworld movie is in development, and counter to some reports it won’t be a remake or reboot. No, this is a new sequel, and Theo James will lead the Underworld 5 cast. Read More »

Divergent review

Fair or not, it’s impossible not to measure Divergent against The Hunger Games. This is true for obvious reasons, in that they’re both dystopian YA adaptations featuring strong heroines, or that Divergent is actively and openly gunning to be the next Hunger Games. Unfortunately, it’s also true because Divergent, as directed by Neil Burger, never makes enough of a mark to rise above that easy comparison.

It’s not that Divergent is terrible. The movie serves up a couple of nice moments and some very appealing performances. But where the Hunger Games offered a rich, colorful universe, Divergent offers us a half-competed sketch. Where The Hunger Games felt bracingly different from its own predecessors, Twilight and Harry Potter, Divergent feels like well-meaning knock-off of all three.
