“ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING” BASED ON H.G. WELLS’ COMEDIC FANTASY

Image
The idea for the latest family adventure film from Terry Jones, “Absolutely Anything,” starring Kate Beckinsale and Simon Pegg began life many years ago when the former Python imagined a movie inspired by a short story written by H.G. Wells at the end of the 19th century — the comedic fantasy ‘The Man Who Could Work Miracles’.

“Absolutely Anything” tells the tale of a disillusioned schoolteacher, Neil Clarke (Pegg), who is suddenly granted the ability to do anything he wishes. These powers are bestowed upon him by a group of aliens (voiced by Cleese, Gilliam, Jones, Palin and Idle), who are watching him from outer space. Unbeknown to Neil, how he employs his newfound powers will dictate the fate of mankind. One wrong move and the aliens will destroy Earth forever.

While struggling with these miraculous powers, Neil is also bidding to win the heart of the girl who lives in the flat downstairs, Catherine (Beckinsale), and he calls upon…

REESE WITHERSPOON PLAYS CATALYST OF THE LOST BOYS’ TRIUMPH IN “THE GOOD LIE”

Image
Reese Witherspoon and Ant-Man’s Corey Stoll star alongside a gifted set of actors Arnold Oceng, Nyakuoth Wiel, Ger Duany and Emmanuel Jal who are also real-life Sudanese refugees in the deeply moving story of “The Good Lie” where orphaned children survived during the civil war in Sudan in the early 1980s.

“The Good Lie” unveils the survival story of the children known as “The Lost Boys” of Sudan, young victims traveled as many as a thousand miles on foot in search of safety. Fifteen years later, a humanitarian effort would bring 3600 lost boys and girls to America. Most Americans knew very little of the civil war in Sudan or of its most vulnerable victims: the more than 100,000 children left orphaned and displaced in the wake of the brutal violence that ravaged southern Sudan. But the U.S. and Sudan were about to be integrally connected by a program that brought thousands of these young Sudanese-called "the Lost Boys"-to American cities from…

IT’S CLOBBERING TIME WITH THE NEW “FANTASTIC FOUR” OPENS THIS AUGUST 5 IN PHILIPPINE CINEMAS!

Image
The Fantastic Four stories are about characters who did not have to wear masks, and who sometimes clashed with each other. The comics were set in the real world so readers could identify even more with the Four. The reason the comic has endured so many years is because of its familial dynamics. Such essence was what director Josh Trank and producer/screenwriter took from the original books, along with the elemental fun, adventure and optimism.

In this year’s “Fantastic Four,” pioneering filmmakers director Josh Trank and scribe/producer Simon Kinberg contemporize the re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team that centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Set in contemporary New York, this retelling focuses on the Four before they become a team – when they were four young idealistic adventurers who make a headstrong leap into the unkn…

REBECCA FERGUSON WHIPS UP A STORM IN “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION”

Image
While “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” brings together the best and the brightest of the IMF in hot pursuit of The Syndicate, the film also bring several new faces into Ethan Hunt’s (Tom Cruise) world. Most notably, Hunt meets Ilsa Faust, a woman who literally takes him by storm, with savvy and skills that rival his own.

To play Ilsa, the femme fatale who reverses the tables on Hunt, the filmmakers chose a relative unknown: Rebecca Ferguson, who hails from Sweden, and was recently seen in “Hercules.” She won the role in part because she was a total surprise, says director Christopher McQuarrie. “When I first saw Rebecca on tape, she was 180 degrees from what I thought I was looking for. But Tom and I just looked at each other and said, ‘that’s her.’ Immediately we saw that she had the energy we wanted – she was independent, elegant, full of grace and maturity,” the director observes. “We called her in to read with Tom and they instantly clicked. Everyone just stood back and watched…

PAYBACK TIME AGAINST THE BULLIES OF THE PAST IN “THE GIFT”

Image
The sins of the past is a couple’s present nightmare in the psychological thriller “The Gift” starring Joel Edgerton which he also wrote and directed along with Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall. “The Gift” is produced by award-winning and blockbuster makers Rebecca Yeldham and Jason Blum who are also behind the worldwide success of films such as “The Kite Runner,” “Whiplash,” “Paranormal Activity,” “The Purge,” “Insidious,” “Sinister” and “Ouija” franchises.

“The Gift” poses the deadening question “What if someone you wronged long ago comes back to the present through a chance encounter? Such thought-provoking reality is astutely presented in “The Gift” where Simon (Bateman) and Robyn (Hall) play a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo (Edgerton) at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts p…

PETER DINKLAGE, JOSH GAD PLAY UNLIKELY HEROES IN “PIXELS”

Image
Peter Dinklage (HBO's “Game of Thrones,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and Josh Gad (“Frozen”) star as two of four unlikely heroes who are called upon to save the world, in Columbia Pictures' new action comedy “Pixels.”

In the film which also stars Adam Sandler, aliens attack the Earth, using 1980s videogames as the model for their attacks. As US President Cooper (Kevin James) calls on Sam Brenner (Sandler) to put together an expert team of Arcaders to help fight the aliens, Brenner tracks down the now-grown men who were the champions as kids.

Josh Gad joins the cast as Ludlow Lamonsoff, the youngest member of the Arcaders. “He’s a little younger than the other guys – he was kind of the Wonder Kid,” says Gad.

Once the child prodigy amongst the gamers, he’s now a conspiracy theorist who never quite got over his childhood crush on Lady Lisa, the cartoonish lead character in Dojo Quest, his favorite game from back in the day.

“Tim Herlihy and Timothy Dowling wrote a character that wa…

NEW “VACATION” TRAILER FOCUSES ON THE GRISWOLD FAMILY

Image
New Line Cinema has released a new trailer for “Vacation,” the upcoming comedy sequel from writers/directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (“Horrible Bosses”) which may be viewed HERE.

“Vacation” finds Ed Helms playing a grown-up version of Rusty Griswold who opts to take his own family on a trip to Walley World, echoing the premise at the center of the original Vacation. This new trailer focuses on the Griswolds themselves as opposed to highlighting the film’s many cameos.

Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.

Rounding out the cast are Leslie Mann (“The Other Woman”) as Rusty’s sister, Audrey; Chris Hemsworth (the “Thor” films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; and Skyler Gisondo (“Night at the Museum: Secret …

"INSIDE OUT” UNFOLDS THROUGH EYES OF FIVE EMOTIONS

Image
Disney-Pixar's new comedy adventure “Inside Out” features a team of Emotions who helps guide 11-year-old Riley through an unsettling change in her life. But as the story was being developed, filmmakers weren’t sure which emotions should make the cut. “Some psychologists claim there are as many as 27 Emotions,” says director Pete Docter. “We toyed with adding Pride. Or Schadenfreude, who delighted in the pain of others. But it started getting crowded in there. We ultimately settled on five.” Filmmakers then went about defining each Emotion, assigning them a purpose in Riley’s mind, and tackling the difficult process of finding the right look for each. “The look and design of the Emotions had to remind people that they are personifications of feelings,” says Docter. “They’re not little people. They’re Emotions. They’re made of energy—they’re made up of thousands of particles, which kind of looks like energy. We wanted to capture what emotions feel like—the shapes, the colors—as well a…

REVIEW | Paper Towns (2015)

Image
Another teen flick spawned from the wry, dark, and romanticized literary world of John Green, where teen protagonists fall in love and get their hearts broken.

In Paper Towns, our hero is the safe and boringly focused and disciplined Quentin (Nat Wolff), who is nursing a longtime crush on the reckless, restless, and mysterious Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevingne).

When mannish-faced Margo suddenly sneaks into his bedroom for a night of "epic adventure," which consists of pranks only hilarious to 7-and-a-half-year-olds and as exhilarating as polishing one's shoe, Quentin feels alive for the first time (go figure).

When Margo suddenly disappears and leaves clues for a hunt that is exciting as ironing your clothes, and a boring guy like Quentin decides to take his first ever road trip to find her, it becomes a frightening recipe for a snooze-fest, and your limbs start to itch with restlessness.

Penned by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and directed by Jake Schre…

SIMON PEGG’S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS IN “ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING”

Image
Wholly talented actor Simon Pegg, widely known for his roles in franchise blockbusters such as “Star Trek,” “Mission: Impossible” and lending voice in animated and CGI films “Ice Age” and “The Chronicles of Narnia” stars anew in the upcoming fantasy action adventure in “Absolutely Anything” opposite Kate Beckinsale.

“Absolutely Anything” tells the tale of a disillusioned schoolteacher, Neil Clarke (Pegg), who is suddenly granted the ability to do anything he wishes. The fate of the world hangs in the balance. One man’s actions stand between Earth’s survival and its absolute destruction. The thing is, Neil hasn’t got a clue what’s going on.

Up in the distant reaches of outer space, the Intergalactic Council, a nasty bunch of alien creatures, intercept the Voyager space probe and look down on planet Earth. These cackling creatures have an appetite for destruction and believe that Earth and its inhabitants should be destroyed. However, bef…

TOM CRUISE GOES ROGUE IN FIFTH “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE” THRILLER

Image
Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, facing his most blisteringly impossible mission yet, in “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the fifth installment in the constantly accelerating action-thriller series.

This time out, Cruise’s iconic character, Ethan Hunt, finds himself in non-stop peril – physical, mental and emotional -- from the film’s literally high-flying opening moments through one relentless situation after another. Hunt’s situation is precarious on every level. The IMF is on the outs, the CIA doesn’t trust him, and now he’s discovered a rogue agency with the spy-power to bring down any nation it targets – and they want him to join their crusade of destruction or they want him dead. On the brink, Hunt must test his team’s loyalty, his own illustrious endurance and the agenda of the alluringly secretive spy who saved his skin: Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson).

For Cruise, a fifth time playing Hunt and serving as producer presented another chance to see just how far he can take the …

FAST-RISING STAR ALICIA VIKANDER SPICES UP “MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.”

Image
Sweden's actress-on-the-rise Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina”) stars opposite Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in Warner Bros. Pictures' new spy action-thriller “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.”

Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo (Cavill) and KGB agent Kuryakin (Hammer). Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is Gaby Teller (Vikander), the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.

Solo and Kuryakin’s working relationship requires a cover, and that’s where newly sprung East Berliner Gaby Teller becomes a more hands-on participa…

THE SCHOOL `SPIRIT’ IS ALIVE IN “THE GALLOWS”

Image
Perhaps nothing plays on an audience’s own phobias better than making them feel trapped in the kind of place they might frequent every day, all the while hunted by some unknown, unseen force. “It could happen to you, too,” or so the filmmakers seem to be saying while, one by one, the characters on screen face an untimely demise in a variety of horrific manners.

In New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “The Gallows,” that everyday locale is a high school auditorium. Moviegoers have all been there, no matter their hometown, and therefore can all put themselves in the characters’ place.

“Even the most familiar place is different at night,” director Chris Lofing says. “Few of us would choose to experience an empty school in the middle of the night. Empty hallways, all the doors closed. Right away, most of us would be a little freaked out.”

Adding to that, Lofing continues, “Supernatural things start happening, and then become more and more intense. But no one knows these guys are there, no…

JEREMY RENNER LEADS RETURNING TEAM IN “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION”

Image
Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) has never needed the other members of the IMF more than he does in Paramount Pictures’ “Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation” – and despite the appearance that the force is done, they all come together, unpredictably as ever, to take on The Syndicate as only the IMF can. The result is that Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames had a chance to take their characters more than a few bounds forward.

“I love the dynamics between Jeremy, Simon and Ving on this film as you see the IMF team come under pressure and almost fracture,” says Tom Cruise. “It looks like the IMF is about to split apart and the whole story is going to blow up basically – and that’s integral to a Mission movie.”

As Luther Stickell -- the computer expert who first appeared in the original “Mission: Impossible” directed by Brian De Palma – and William Brandt – the IMF agent assigned to guard Ethan Hunt in “Ghost Protocol” -- team up to track Ethan, it was a blast for the filmmakers …

“HARRY POTTER” DIRECTOR CONJURES ‘80S VIDEOGAMES FOR “PIXELS”

Image
From Chris Columbus, director of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer Stone,” comes Columbia Pictures’ “Pixels,” the tentpole action comedy in which aliens attack the Earth, using 1980s videogames as the model for their invasion.

Columbus helped define 1980s movies as the writer of “Gremlins” and “The Goonies,” then went on to direct beloved, classic comedies like “Home Alone” and “Mrs. Doubtfire,” and help launch epic, special-effects blockbuster franchises like “Harry Potter,” “Percy Jackson” and “Night at the Museum.”

Columbus says that “Pixels” appealed to him in myriad ways. “Reading the `Pixels’ script felt so original, so unique, that I just had to do it,” he says. “I loved the blend of comedy mixed with action, which gave me an opportunity to do something I hadn’t been able to do since `Harry Potter.’ It enabled me to push the comedy as far as we could, but also create this very intense action adventure film. For me, it’s `Gremlins’ meets `Goonies’ meets `Harry Potter’ – it gave m…

FIFTH “MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE” GOES TO EXTREMES, UPS THE STAKES

Image
Paramount Pictures’ new action-thriller “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the fifth installment of the series, redefines the term impossible.

It’s something the film franchise has been doing since its box-office busting start two decades ago: with each new film, the team led by dedicated star and producer Tom Cruise has uncovered ways to match, then exceed, audience expectations, each time in different ways. Having begun as a cult phenomenon on 1960s television, “Mission: Impossible” has become a 21st Century cultural phenomenon – a filmmaking event that consistently pushes that border where the classic drama of spy-versus-spy intrigue meets creative action sequences that have become legendary.

In “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” the deep-cover espionage agency known as the IMF has been under fire, but now it faces total disbandment, even as the most harrowing threat yet known to the free world lies in the shadows. That threat is The Syndicate, an impenetrable, exquisitely-trai…

AMERICA'S UNLUCKIEST LOVABLE FAMILY RETURNS IN “VACATION”

Image
New Line Cinema’s outrageous comedy “Vacation” starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate and Chris Hemsworth, marks the big screen return of the Griswold clan—and their epically disastrous family outings.

The Griswolds first hit the screen in 1983 with the release of John Hughes’s and Harold Ramis’s zeitgeist-shifting “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” based on Hughes’s short stories in the eponymous humor magazine. The film became a global phenomenon and opened the way for the Griswolds to bumble through an escalating series of hilarious highs and gut-bustingly funny lows in the three subsequent films that followed—1985’s “National Lampoon’s European Vacation,” 1989’s “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and 1997’s “Vegas Vacation.” Collectively, the films have introduced a litany of outrageous one-liners into the American cultural lexicon, and garnered generations of fans.

Among them were filmmakers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the scribes behind films like “Horrible Bosses”…
