There are a few instances where it’s okay to tell your kids to give up on their dreams. For example, if a child dreams of being a dinosaur, you should probably have a gentle conversation about realistic expectations. Before I Wake proposes another more literal take on this parental dilemma: what if your kid’s nightmares began manifesting in reality and started trying to jump scare you to death?
The Before I Wake trailer gets right down to business. There’s a creepy kid (played by Room‘s Jacob Tremblay), an even creepier dead kid, Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth looking increasingly concerned about their predicament, and a whole bunch of gross things suddenly popping up on screen.

Syfy‘s The Expanse is one of those shows that makes me feel guilty for cutting the cord. Sure, I’ll be able to experience this gritty space opera soon enough when it decides to hit a proper streaming service (you can watch it on Syfy’s official site right now, but it feels less than ideal), but it feels like it has the potential to be the next great science fiction show, a proper heir to the likes of Battlestar Galactica and Firefly. Not being able to be part of the weekly conversation with a show that feels so far up my alley is more than a little maddening.
At the very least, it’s good to know that there will be plenty to explore when I do ultimate dive down this particular rabbit hole. Syfy has renewed The Expanse for a second season and it will premiere sometime in early 2017.

Bruce Willis still makes good movies, but he tends to make a whole lot of forgettable dreck between them. It’s too early to determine which side of that line Vice, his latest movie, falls on, but if we had to guess… well, let’s just say this seems to have more in common with The Prince and Fire With Fire than Moonrise Kingdom or Looper.
Vice stars Willis as the owner of a futuristic resort in which customers use androids to play out their darkest, most decadent fantasies. But when one of those androids, played by Ambyr Childers, gets wise to what’s going on, she breaks out and tries to strike back. Thomas Jane also stars, as a cop involved in the struggle. Check out the Vice trailer after the jump.

The trailer for Reach Me makes the movie seem to have a few too many identities crammed into the frame; as a baseline it comes across like Paul Haggis’ Crash mixed with Dianetics. The ensemble cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crewes, Kelsey Grammer, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Berenger, Tom Sizemore, Cary Elwes and Nelly. We’ll get to more of the background in a moment, but for now hit the jump to watch that cast try to find their feet in the first Reach Me trailer. Read More »
A former racing champion turned driving instructor is forced into being a getaway driver in Drive Hard, the latest film from the director of Leprechaun 4: In Space. But before you back away slowly from this post while laughing madly, know that the race-car driver is played by Thomas Jane and the bank robber is played by John Cusack.
Directed by cult filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith, Voltage Pictures will release Drive Hard later this year and a trailer has now come online. Check it out below. Read More »
Briefly: Bruce Willis may be bored by action movies, but he keeps making them, in part because we keep watching them. While there are loads of films selling distribution rights this week at the European Film Market, one has done better than many others, because it is a sci-fi tale with Willis in the lead.
VICE will star Willis, Thomas Jane, and Ambyr Childers in a story that is “set on a futuristic resort where synthetic humans serve the rich, who live out their darkest fantasies. The humanoids are reset every night by the resort’s owner Julian (Willis), but one female employee Kelly (Childers) malfunctions and retains every terrifying memory. Realizing what the tourists are doing to the staff members, she sets out to exact revenge.” So, a little Westworld, and a lot of other sci-fi films mixed together. We know roles for Willis and Childers, and so want to bet that Jane plays one of the resorts customers, possibly the one that makes Childers lose it?
Brian A. Miller (The Prince) will direct when the shoot starts next month in Alabama, from a script by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore. [Variety]

Shailene Woodley rocked the Sundance Film Festival last year with James Ponsoldt’s lovely The Spectacular Now, and she’ll hope to do the same next year with Gregg Araki‘s White Bird in a Blizzard. Based on a 1999 novel of the same title by Laura Kasischke, the drama stars Woodley as a teenager whose life is thrown into chaos by the mysterious disappearance of her mother (Eva Green).
While most Sundance films haven’t released much more than a still image, if that, White Bird in a Blizzard has just put out its first trailer. Check it out after the jump.
