Movie Review: Transcendence

In: Donovan, Movies
transcendence-movie-review

Johnny Depp’s latest blockbuster, Transcendence, hits theatres today and while the film features a talented cast and an interesting story, the complexity of the whole thing just sort of implodes into a giant mess.

Depp plays Will Caster, a scientist whose focus is artificial intelligence. His ultimate goal is to create a computer system that not only learns and grows, but is self aware. Nearing this goal attracts the attention of a anti-AI terrorist organization that leads a series of attacks against AI labs culminating in an attempted assassination of Caster.

While on his deathbed, Caster’s wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) uploads his consciousness to the computer system resulting in a Will Caster/Computer hybrid that has the ability to evolve, learn, and grow. This creates a whole mess of predictable problems.

maleficent-featurette

Walt Disney has released several trailers for Maleficent up to this point. All of them seem to indicate their origin story of the iconic villain will be another home run for the studio. If you’re curious to know the magic required to bring the story to life, Disney just released the first featurette.

“We’ve respected the classic, we’ve tried to bring you what we love about this story. We also hope to bring a world you have never seen before,” says Angelina Jolie in the featurette. “It’s a very beautiful story, and I think it’s very different from what people are going to expect.”

Both Elle Fanning and Jolie sit down to discuss their thoughts on this new take of the Sleeping Beauty villain. They’re joined in the clip by director Robert Stromberg and screenwriter Linda Woolverton. Check out the featurette below. Maleficent bows in theaters on May 30.

Clint Eastwood Debuts Jersey Boys Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Jersey Boys is the latest Tony-winning musical heading to the silver screen. I can’t wait. I saw the Broadway production and it was brilliant.

There’s no denying that Clint Eastwood is one of the most prolific directors around but his decision to adapt the Broadway musical seems like an odd choice. Who would’ve thought Dirty Harry would one day direct a movie musical.

John Lloyd Young who portrayed Frankie Valli on the Great White Way makes the leap to Hollywood to play the role once again. Wise decision on everyone’s part. He embodies Valli perfectly. The film adaptation wouldn’t be the same without him in the cast. Christopher Walken also joins the flick in a supporting role. The film hits theaters on June 20. Check out the trailer below which tells the rags-to-riches tale of The Four Seasons.

Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel Reportedly In The Works

In: Donovan, Movies

Mrs. Doubtfire ruled the box office in 1993. The beloved comedy, budgeted at only $25 million, earned over $441 million worldwide. It was the second-highest grossing film of that year, behind only Jurassic Park. Over twenty years later, FOX 2000 Pictures is developing a sequel. Best part is both Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are reportedly reuniting for the project. Williams won a Golden Globe for his performance.

For those unfamiliar with the movie, it featured Williams dressing in drag to spend time with his kids. His ex-wife unknowingly hires him as their new housekeeper and nanny. Sally Field played his estranged wife, and Pierce Brosnan was her love interest. Also starring in the original were Matthew Lawrence, Mara Wilson and Harvey Fierstein. One of the funniest parts is when one of the kids accidentally walks in on Mrs. Doubtfire pissing standing up.

Before you get too excited, this isn’t the first time talk of a sequel has surfaced. Attempts were made in both 2001 and 2006 to bring back the lovable nanny but never took off due to problems with the script. Let’s hope Elf writer David Berenbaum who’s been tapped to pen the script has better luck. Check out the original trailer below.

anna-paquin-x-men-days-of-future-past

Back in December, Bryan Singer shared the crushing news that Anna Paquin’s part in X-Men: Days of Future Past was cut from the film. That sent shockwaves among hardcore comic geeks. Here’s what the 48-year-old director said at the time.

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” Singer says. “It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in — the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Apparently, that’s now all changed. In the film’s third trailer, which was recently released, Paquin’s name now appears in the credits. A rep for 20th Century Fox confirmed to Buzzfeed that she will, in fact, be in the flick. Don’t get your hopes up too high though. The rep added, “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo.” BOO!!!

Check out the latest trailer below which gives a more in-depth look at Wolverine’s journey to the future to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants. It also gives a better look at Quicksilver and the other newly-added mutants. It’s the best trailer yet.

David Cronenberg clearly took a liking to Robert Pattinson filming Cosmopolis. The Canadian director once again teams up with the Twilight stud for his latest flick, Maps To The Stars. It marks the first time Cronenberg has shot a movie in the United States.

The satire drama film features the 27-year-old shacking up with Julianne Moore in the back of a limo. Pattinson isn’t the only one Moore hooks up with. The redhead gets around, finding herself in intimate moments with other men and women. Rounding out the cast are John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon, and Evan Bird. Check out the trailer below.

Synopsis

The Weiss family is the archetypal Entertainment Industry dynasty: Sanford (John Cusack), the father is a celebrity therapist and best-selling author; Cristina (Olivia Williams), his wife, manages the career of their thirteen year-old son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a TV star. One of Sanford’s clients, Havana (Julianne Moore), is an actress who dreams of remaking the film that made her mother, Clarice (Sarah Gadon), a movie star. But her mother, now dead, has come back to haunt her dreams. Benjie emerges from rehab as his elder sister, Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), is released from a stint in a psychiatric hospital where she has been serving time for arson. Ghosts, death, and all manner of vices collide as the family reunites. Maps to the Stars is a darkly satiric drama about celebrity obsession.
