Watch the first 8 minutes of Cameron Crowe's Aloha online now Cameron Crowe's latest film, ALOHA, has not exactly been winning over the critics.

Film Review: 'Survivor'

Latino Review - Fri, 2015-05-29 11:25

Milla Jovovich and Pierce Brosnan face off in the new espionage thriller "Survivor". Milla is a newly appointed U.S. foreign service officer assigned to London who quickly becomes wrapped up in a terrorist plot to attack the United States. Brosnan is The Watchmaker, an elusive, very effective assassin who is sent to kill Jovovich's character, as she learns too much about said plot and is attempting to foil it.

James Ponsoldt is leaving much space for breathing room. His latest film "The End Of The Tour" is fresh off a Sundance premiere and is hitting theaters next month (check out the trailer). And next in line is perhaps his starriest effort yet with the Tom Hanks starring adaptation of Dave Eggers' "The Circle." And now the director has another hot project on his plate.  Deadline report the filmmaker will write and direct the F. Scott Fitzgerald tale "West Of Sunset." Just to be clear this is about Fitzgerald, not based on his writing.

Gracie Films Over a year ago our own Kate Erbland asked, Are ‘Say Anything’ Lovebirds Lloyd Dobler and Diane Court Still Together? Kate may actually get an answer to that question. The good news is today a Cameron Crowe movie is opening in theaters, meaning we got a chance to speak with Crowe about his latest project, Aloha. The Hawaii-set film is very much in Crowe’s wheelhouse. It’s about a guy, Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper), at a crossroads, trying to reinvent himself.

Channing Tatum will produce an adaptation of the beloved memoir 'Two Kisses for Maddy' with an eye to star.

While addressing fan questions, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn explained on Facebook (via ComicBook.com) that Kang the Conqueror is owned by 20th Century Fox. The time-traveling Kang the Conqueror is a strange case. His first appearance was in a Fantastic Four comic, but that was as King Rama Tut. He wasn't the Kang we know today until a year later when he appeared in an Avengers comic, and then he went on to become a classic Avengers nemesis. His younger self even became Iron Lad, a member of the Young Avengers.

Having already seen several of his original comics brought to life on the big screen, prolific writer Mark Millar recently revealed that Starlight and Chrononauts will probably be the next two 'Millarworld' properties to get the green light.

Lucius will help Bruce find out more about his parent’s activities and their deaths.

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Even more so than the hotly-tipped, much anticipated big-ticket movies, one of the true delights of a film festival is rolling the dice and seeing something you know nothing about. Going to see a picture that's under the radar, that doesn't yet have buzz, and you don't even know the logline for, and could really be anything. Sure, sometimes you'll end up with a borderline unwatchable, relentlessly grim disaster.

Welcome to Screen Rant’s “Geek Picks,” where we collect the finest movie-related geekery from around the Web.

Matthew Weiner asserted that he’d only do “one talk” dissecting that whole Mad Men finale situation. Although two sentences later, he also asserted that “you know me, I can’t keep my mouth shut.” I’m happy to report that Weiner’s not holding to his word at all. On Wednesday, the Mad Men showrunner (flanked by Mad Men directing regulars Scott Hornbacher, Jennifer Getzinger, Michael Uppendahl and Chris Manley), sat down in LA for an event called “A Farewell to Mad Men.” Led by David O.

We’re used to directors working with the same actors more than once, but it’s much more rare to connect a performer with an author whose work is being adapted to the screen, unless that author is William Shakespeare.

Yesterday, I reported on the news that a new Xbox One controller was in the works. I assumed that it would drop during E3, but if this new leak is to believed, it could be with us in just a few days. Eurogamer (via VG247) found the controller, which is listed as having the 3.5mm headphone jack, on the Austrian site Libro. The listing is now gone, but it stated that the controller will be coming June 8th. Here is a picture of it.

There really isn’t a lot to go on here, but this is defintely newsworthy. Rise of the Tomb Raider is going to get ‘something’ come this Monday. That is according to the Tomb Raider Facebook page, which left an update on that simply stated: Mark your calendars for Monday, June 1. ‪#‎TombRaider‬ I’m kind of at a loss as to what this could be. Gameplay would be nice, but that’s something I would have expected to be saved for E3.

Film Review: 'Results'

Latino Review - Fri, 2015-05-29 19:17

"Results" is the new indie dramedy from filmmaker Andrew Bujalski. Bujalski is known to film fans as the writer/director behind such low budget efforts as "Mutual Appreciation", "Funny Ha Ha" and "Computer Chess". This is his first foray into slightly higher budget moviemaking and his first time working with stars, in this case Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders. He acquits himself well with these new "challenges" and turns out a reasonably successful cinematic work.Pearce and Smulders play Trevor and Kat, personal trainers who live and work in Austin, Texas.

By Octavio Karbank Click here to view the embedded video. Having knights, wielding only swords and bows, go up against one of the deadliest living creatures in the universe, wielding only swords and shields, hardly seems sporting. High tech alien weaponry versus ancient superstition and bows and arrows; I think I know who my money is on. Regardless, I like the idea of Templar Knights being sent into hellish forest after a “demon” that’s been leaving a sizable body count.

Although Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce that Hayley Atwell will be making her fifth cinematic appearance as Peggy Carter in Captain America: Civil War, the English actress recently took to Twitter to reveal a series of photos with the cast and crew on the set in Atlanta, Georgia. There is already a pretty big spoiler online regarding how the S.H.I.E.L.D.

'Kick-Ass' creator Mark Millar has a great idea for a spinoff 'Hit-Girl' movie, but thinks it might be too crazy for commercial audiences.
