RIDDICK
Release date: September 6, 2013

Cast: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Gerard Funk
Directed by: David Twohy

Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

RUSH
Release date: Sept. 20, 2013 (NYC and L.A.), Sept. 27 (Wide)

Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Pierfrancesco Favino
Directed by: Ron Howard

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.

Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Brian Oliver (Black Swan), Morgan, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) and Morgan and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Tim Bevan and Todd Hallowell.

ABOUT TIME
Release date: November 1, 2013 (Limited Engagements), November 8 (Wide)

Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Margot Robbie
Directed by: Richard Curtis

At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time…

The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life—so he decides to make his world a better place…by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again—and again—but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart. Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches, to save his best friend from professional disaster and to get his pregnant wife to the hospital in time for the birth of their daughter, despite a nasty traffic jam outside Abbey Road.

But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can’t save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous too. About Time is a comedy about love and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

Richard Curtis is the writer of TV shows such as Not the Nine O’Clock News, Blackadder, Mr Bean and The Vicar of Dibley. His movies include Four Weddings and a Funeral; Notting Hill; Bridget Jones’s Diary; and Love Actually and The Boat That Rocked, which he also directed.

GENERATION UM… Movie Trailer

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Here is the teaser trailer from Phase 4 Films’ upcoming film GENERATION UM…. The movie is directed by Mark L Mann, starring Keanu Reeves, Bojana Novakovic and Adelaide Clemens.

generation Um… – In Theaters May 3, 2013

The world is downtown New York City, present day – from the point of view of a driver for an escort service. John (Keanu Reeves), a quietly sexy withdrawn guy, is finally ageing out of his young, trendy neighborhood, dealing with the beginnings of the next chapter of his life.

John’s friends are the party girls he works for – Violet (Bojana Novakovic), an unstoppable entertainer whose weathered beauty and self-proclaimed wisdom are matched only by her lack of audience; and Mia (Adelaide Clemens), the new girl with the dark past, whose traffic-stopping sensuality has brought her nothing but victimization. Both survive on their ability to manipulate men, and don’t know how to live any other way. But John, they trust. And through their relationship, all three find a comforting and humorous refuge from the downward spiral of their self-destructive but entertaining lifestyles.

The end of another night out for this odd family of circumstance sets the stage for an all too familiar day spent coming to terms with and reveling in the lives they have unintentionally created for themselves.

When John impulsively steals a camcorder, he decides to capture the sights, sounds, and senses of New York – or rather, his sights, sounds, and senses. He records nature, people, himself. Today. John’s experiment takes a new turn when he pans the camera’s attention to his Party Girls. Violet is gung-ho, ready at a moment’s notice to become the center of attention before the focus fades away. Mia is less enthused, but finds herself opening up to the promise of a spectator.

John’s camcorder unravels the girls’ lives, as both Violet and Mia find themselves attempting to outdo one another’s secrets and opinions.

TRIBECA FILM TAKES NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS TO SIDE BY SIDE

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Tribeca Film announced today that it has acquired North American rights to Side by Side, a provocative and illuminating journey through the technical and aesthetic implications of the transition from traditional film to digital technology.

Produced and presented by Keanu Reeves and directed by Chris Kenneally, Reeves takes you on a tour of the past and the future of filmmaking in Side by Side. Since the invention of cinema, the standard format for recording moving images has been film. Over the past two decades, a new form of digital filmmaking has emerged, creating a groundbreaking evolution in the medium. Reeves explores the development of cinema and the impact of digital filmmaking via in-depth interviews with Hollywood’s masters, such as Danny Boyle, James Cameron, David Fincher, George Lucas, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, Lars Von Trier, The Wachowskis, and many more.

A summer release is planned for the film, which is having its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival. In addition to Tribeca Film’s multi-platform rollout, the filmmakers plan a broadcast premiere early next year and will bring the film to college campuses and film schools to continue the conversation.

“Cinema is at a tipping point. Digital has challenged, and in some ways completely overturned, a process of making movies on photochemical film that has been a tradition for over one hundred years,” states Chris Kenneally, the director. “Side by Side is an intimate conversation between Keanu and the top professionals in the industry about this revolution and its impact.”

“Keanu Reeves has long distinguished himself with compelling and original performances, but with Side By Side he demonstrates another dimension: remarkable passion and thoughtfulness about the state of film itself,” said Nancy Schafer, EVP of Tribeca Enterprises. “Chris Kenneally has created a fantastic resource about the film medium and we are anticipating a great dialogue throughout this year as audiences experience Side by Side.”

The Day The Earth Stood Still Movie Review

Friday, December 12th, 2008




Klaatu: If the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the Earth survives.

That is basically what it boils down to, that is the message, and it is very strongly suggested. Now for you non-sci-fi fans, don’t bother, you already know you are not going to like this movie. Sci-fi fans, listen up . . . you might hear negativity surrounding this movie, I know I have, but if you are a true fan of anything sci-fi you will not be disappointed. I mean sure, this is not the best movie ever made and you might even consider War of the Worlds or I Am Legend to be better, a little more intense and dramatic, but all in all this a well done sci-fi thriller that is spooky and mysterious, catastrophic and filled with hopelessness. There is a fair amount of action and drama as it explores the human condition and how it affects the Earth’s condition, as well as the fine line between life and death. This movie is very high tech and the special effects are top notch. I would go so far as to say that the visuals alone in this movie make it worth the watch. It is really good stuff. Well, actually, I guess it helped that I was fortunate enough to see it in an IMAX theater, so yeah, you might want to heavily consider that option if you plan to see it. IMAX really has it going on. I think all movies should be shown in IMAX. You’ve got the incredible screen size and the sound system is just as impressive as the screen. It really takes movie watching to a whole new level.

In another taste test, let’s compare it to two other movies that have very similar themes. I would say that it is not as good as Cloverfield (I loved Cloverfield, thought it was a fantastic movie, gave it 5 stars) but it is definitely better than Fantastic 4, Silver Surfer. The added bonus in this film is Keanu playing the lead role as Klaatu, the extraterrestrial. It was reminiscent of his most prolific role, Neo from the Matrix series (my favorite movie series of all time, so far). The cold, emotionless stares, the monotone speech, and the deliberate and robotic motions were perfectly done by Mr. Reeves. You can say that I highly agree with the casting in this movie. That includes Jennifer Connelly who I think is at her best when she is in a hopeless situation and her eyes well up with tears. She plays Dr. Helen Benson who is one of the few people Klaatu seems to get along with. The puzzling part of the cast is Kathy Bates as Regina Jackson, a Presidential right-hand woman, and John Cleese as Professor Barnhardt, a scientist and Nobel Prize winner. It is awkward seeing Kathy play a political role and even more awkward is seeing John play a serious role. They both did good jobs, though, but it was just awkward.

Even though the storyline is predictable and at times a little corny, the message does get across in the simplest of forms. It is summarized by that one quote from the movie above. There have been plenty of movies lately that promote environmental friendliness, but none cut to point as directly as this one. I appreciate the message that this movie gives the most: if we kill the Earth we kill ourselves; if we save the Earth, we save ourselves. It’s that simple. The overall dialogue in this movie was just as simple and direct too. Considering that Director Scott Derrickson has only done a handful of movies, no matter what people say, I think he did a very decent job with this one. Now I haven’t read the book or seen the original version of this motion picture so I can’t compare it to either. As a stand alone production, however, it is worth the watch but you need to be a fan of sci-fi to really enjoy it.
