One for the Road | 2021 Sundance Film Festival Review

One for the Road | 2021 Sundance Film Festival Review
Road to Redemption: Poonpiriya Paves the Way for Heartfelt Crowd-Pleaser

Teetering between cornball and poignant, Baz Poonpiriya’s One for the Road is a big-hearted melodrama that hits all the right notes, almost too neatly, then makes up for its sins with welcome surprises. We’ve all seen our share of weepy dying-buddy films, and while it doesn’t reinvent the wheel—there’s enough fresh fun here in the filmmaker’s third outing.

Poonpiriya showed a knack for mainstream appeal with his 2017 breakout, Bad Genius; here, he combines broad strokes with personal touches—a feat in and of itself, even when the results are mixed.…

‘John Wick’ Creator Tapped for ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Live-Action TV Series

‘John Wick’ Creator Tapped for ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Live-Action TV Series
It feels like the development of a television show or movie based on the popular board game “Dungeons & Dragons” has been in development since time immemorial. Now, we might be one step closer. Derek Kolstad, the man behind the Keanu Reeves-starring “John Wick” franchise has been tapped to write and develop a pitch for a live-action TV series based on the game. Kolstad is said to be one of many writers being courted to work within the universe.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this is a separate entity from the feature film which Paramount and eOne, the film division of game owners Hasbro, already have in the casting stages and announced with Chris Pine in the lead. It’s unclear whether this would be a companion series to the filmed feature, with the same cast, or if this would be a totally separate entity.

Created in 1974, “Dungeons & Dragons,

Disney Plus Just Lost 2 Movies That Fans May Miss

Disney Plus Just Lost 2 Movies That Fans May Miss
Disney Plus has gotten the New Year off to a solid start with a content drop that includes movies like Hugh Jackman’s X-Men spinoff The Wolverine and two underrated Jim Carrey efforts in the form of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hearts A Who! and Mr. Popper’s Penguins. There’s a lot of other stuff on the way as well, of course, meaning subscribers will be sure to find things to keep themselves entertained. However, as with every month, Disney’s streaming service has lost a few titles as well.

The first film that’s now departed is the 2005 family comedy Cheaper by the Dozen 2, which stars Steven Martin and Bonnie Hunt as a couple with twelve children. The sequel was voted 98th out of the 100 worst movies of the 2000s on Rotten Tomatoes, where it currently sits at an unimpressive 6% rating. Maybe it’s not so bad that this

‘The New Mutants’ Blu-ray Review

‘The New Mutants’ Blu-ray Review
Stars: Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga | Written by Josh Boone, Knate Lee | Directed by Josh Boone

Between postproduction issues, Disney buying Fox and the coronavirus pandemic, X-Men spin-off The New Mutants has been subject to so many delays that it was becoming the subject of internet ridicule. Fortunately, the film is by no means the copper-plated disaster suggested by its postproduction problems. Instead, it’s an entertaining blend of YA horror, Marvel Comics action and teen movies.

Following a devastating tragedy, Native American Danielle ‘Dani’ Moonstar (newcomer Blu Hunt) wakes up to find herself held captive in Medfield State Hospital, an asylum run single-handedly by Doctor Cecilia Reyes (Alice Braga). The only other inmates are four fellow teenagers: Mean Girl Russian Illyana Rasputin (Anya Taylor-Joy), kind-hearted Scot Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams), withdrawn Kentuckian Sam Guthrie (Charlie Heaton) and jock-like Brazilian Roberto ‘Bobby’ da

And that’s grabbing the baton this year from films like ‘Stars,’ “Then Came You,” and “Five Feet Apart” is the upcoming film “Life in a Year.”

Review: Gory, yet Funny and Heartfelt – ‘Spontaneous; is Excellent

Review: Gory, yet Funny and Heartfelt – ‘Spontaneous; is Excellent
Photo: 'Spontaneous'/Paramount Pictures Unbearable workload. Pressure from your parents to excel. The constant fear of embarrassment. Being torn between wanting to belong in a peer group and being an individual. Having rumors spread about you. Not knowing if the people who act nice to your face say nasty things behind your back. Making and/or losing a friend. Not being noticed by your crush. Let’s face it: high school can be some of the worst years of a person’s life. And then they blow up. Not metaphorically or emotionally, but literally. Boom, drenching anyone within the blast radius in blood. That’s the world that the main characters in Spontaneous, written and directed by screenwriter Brian Duffield in his directing debut and based on the YA novel by Aaron Starmer, find themselves in. And yet against this horror-worthy backdrop, we have a darkly funny yet genuinely sweet

‘Clouds’: A Tear-Jerking Biopic Based on a True Story by Producer Justin Baldoni

‘Clouds’: A Tear-Jerking Biopic Based on a True Story by Producer Justin Baldoni
Photo: 'Clouds'/Disney+ The book The Fault in Our Stars created waves in the world when it was released in 2012. Then in 2014, when it was made into a movie, it also received lots of attention. This unveiled an audience for stories following young teens as they deal with life’s obstacles on top of dealing with a terminal illness such as cancer. With more stories to be told, a new film made by Disney+ called Clouds is an emotional ride. Clouds follows a 17-year-old boy named Zach Sobiech who has osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer.

The New Mutants DVD/Blu-ray Release Date and Special Features

The New Mutants DVD/Blu-ray Release Date and Special Features
The New Mutants will soon stream and spin at homes in the very-near future. While many speculated that this news would precede the recent move by studios Fox and Disney to release the film at theaters, it does signal the end of an era—especially for those of us who have spent the past 3+ years covering it—since the film will likely go down in history as having faced one of the hardest roads to a release, perhaps ever.

20th Century Fox will, at long last, release The New Mutants on Digital HD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, November 17. The Marvel Comics adaptation film, directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), who co-wrote the script with Knate Lee, became one of the few post Q1 2020 movies that saw a big screen release, having hit theaters on August 28; a run that currently tallies at $42 million worldwide, obviously impeded by the

Mortal Trailer Gives Nat Wolff God-Like Superpowers

Mortal Trailer Gives Nat Wolff God-Like Superpowers
Saban Films has revealed a new trailer for Mortal. This is the latest from filmmaker Andre Ovredal, who is coming fresh off of last year's hit adaptation of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. With a cast led by Nat Wolff, it focuses on a young man who discovers he has God-like powers and is based on ancient Norwegian mythology. As we can see from the trailer, It looks to be a dark take on the whole superhuman origin tale.

The trailer opens with Nat Wolff recounting an altercation he had recently, which came with grave consequences. We then come to find that he has fiery powers that are equal parts dangerous and mysterious. Naturally, this leads to issues as government agencies want to get him under control before more damage can be done. There are some Chronicle vibes, only without the found footage angle, while also sort of

‘Twilight’ Production Company Temple Hill Signs First-Look TV Deal With Lionsgate
Temple Hill Productions has signed a multiyear, first-look TV deal with Lionsgate to develop and produce scripted programming across various platforms.

But this is a deal for TV shows. On the small screen, Temple Hill is known for producing “Mr. Mercedes,” “Revenge,” “Looking for Alaska,” “The Outsider,” “Dave” and “Love, Victor.” (All of those projects were independent of Temple Hill’s ongoing partnership with Lionsgate.)

10 Movies To Watch If You Like Divergent

10 Movies To Watch If You Like Divergent
2014 was the year of YA adaptations, Divergent being one of the most noteworthy. Shailene Woodley, the star of the movie, also appeared in The Fault In Our Stars the same year. Divergent is about a futuristic dystopian world wherein society is split into five factions: Amity, Abnegation, Dauntless, Candor, and Erudite.

Beatrice "Tris" Prior doesn't fit squarely into any of the factions, making her a Divergent (hence the title). But Divergents are dangerous, so she pretends to choose Dauntless. Soon enough, though, powerful people are after her and her loved ones. The science-fiction drama filled the void left by the Hunger Games franchise with its first release, but the sequels didn't live up to fans' expectations. Fortunately, there are other, better movies to pick up the slack.

Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen Re-Unite As Temple Hill Producing Partners

Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen Re-Unite As Temple Hill Producing Partners
Exclusive: Nearly three months after stepping down as president of Paramount’s Motion Picture Group when Emma Watts was hired for the top job, Wyck Godfrey has rejoined Marty Bowen as his partner in Temple Hill Entertainment. Godfrey exited the producing game when he signed on to the Paramount exec post in January 2018.

It restores a partnership that began when Godfrey talked Bowen into exiting his position as partner and top lit agent at UTA, where he repped such clients as Charlie Kaufman. The two have produced a swarm of hit films including the Twilight Saga and Maze Runner series, as well as The Fault In Our Stars, First Man and others.

It puts Godfrey back in business with Paramount, as that is where Temple Hill’s first look deal is. Among the projects Temple Hill is prepping are Bagman at Lionsgate, Happiest Season at TriStar, and Together Now at Netflix.

The New Mutants review – troubled kids add hit of horror to X-Men saga

The New Mutants review – troubled kids add hit of horror to X-Men saga
The superhero franchise is refreshed with a thoughtful study of childhood trauma before noisy CGI battles come to the fore

Meet the new mutants, same as the old mutants … or sort of. This is an X-Men spin-off, based on the characters by Marvel Comics artists Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, and they are younger than the hirsute and clawed figures of Magneto, Wolverine and the rest. The film interestingly presents an origin story in less conventional terms than usual. It brings a kind of Ya horror dimension to the mutant mythology – or perhaps it just amplifies the Ya horror that was always implied but less apparent in stories about infant superheroism and callow destiny. Director and co-writer Josh Boone is best known for The Fault in Our Stars and is perhaps interested in the idea that superpowers are the result of some awful cosmological defect.

I Saw The New Mutants at the Drive-In, and It Was Kind of Awesome

I Saw The New Mutants at the Drive-In, and It Was Kind of Awesome
I have been writing full-time, on some level, for a little more than seven years. Much of that time has been devoted to movies, with that making up the bulk of my job for the last four and a half of those years. During much of that time, I have been writing about The New Mutants which, at one point, was viewed as a promising expansion of Fox's X-Men franchise. Much digital ink has been spilled by me on the project's behalf. The movie finally hit theaters over the weekend, albeit under less-than-ideal circumstances. Curiosity, after all of this time, got to me and I decided to catch director Josh Boone's Marvel adaptation at a local drive-in. For various reasons, it was kind of awesome.

First, a little background. Back when 20th Century Fox was still a studio, long before Disney was looking to purchase most of Fox's major media assets,
