Based on all the makeout sessions featured in the new promo for White Bird In A Blizzard, one could easily mistake Shailene Woodley’s film as another teen romance. It’s a wise marketing move given how hot Shailene’s career is since propelling Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars to box office glory.

In actuality, her latest is a thriller where Woodley’s life is turned upside down when her mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. The film was co-produced, written and directed by Gregg Araki and first premiered at 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It’s slated to hit theaters this October.

Playing her love interest in the film is Shiloh Fernandez who’s seen swapping spit with Woodley in school, pool, on a car and everywhere else. Recently, the 22-year-old actress revealed to New York Magazine that filming the sex scenes with Fernandez was “so much fun.” I don’t blame her. He’s not half bad.

Rounding out the cast are Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU), Jacob Artist (Glee), Angela Bassett (Waiting To Exhale), Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). Check out the teaser below.

Movie Review: The Fault In Our Stars

In: Matt, Movies
the-fault-in-our-stars-movie-review

SPOILER ALERT: There will be tears. If you’re looking for a good cry, or a powerfully beautiful teen romance without the typical Hollywood clichés then I highly recommend you see this movie.

The Fault in our Stars is directed by Josh Boone and is based on the novel by John Green. It tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) who is terminally ill with thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs. A smart, witty and resilient girl, Hazel is taking her life one step at a time, just trying to make it to the next day. Not looking to far into the future, Hazel is blindsided when she meets Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) who sweeps her off her feet in a way she describes as akin to falling asleep. “First slowly and then all at once.” Gus is also a cancer patient, having lost one of his legs to osteosarcoma. He is painfully sweet, handsome and irresistibly charming so much so that some may find his relentless optimism and unwavering positivity, coupled with his selflessness and utter devotion to Hazel a bit too far fetched and even slightly annoying. If the film has one fault (pun intended), it’s that Augustus’s character is a bit unrealistic as seen by the trip he takes Hazel and her mother on so that she may meet her favorite author.

This one looks like a major tearjerker. Definitely come prepared with plenty of tissues when you head to the theater.

Based on John Green’s bestselling novel of the same title, The Fault In Our Stars chronicles a tragic romance between two young adults who meet at a cancer support group. The book received widespread critical acclaim for the way it dealt with such very difficult and sensitive issues with sincerity and a sense of humor.

At first glance, it reminds me of that Nicholas Sparks movie where Mandy Moore dies. A Walk To Remember anyone? I probably should’ve said ‘spoiler alert’ before revealing Moore’s fate in that flick ;) Oops. With that being said, this one looks much better than that schmaltzy teen flick.

Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) are two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them — and us — on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, and Willem Dafoe round out the cast. The Josh Boone-directed film is scheduled to hit theaters June 6. Check out the trailer below. The scenes shot in Amsterdam are fantastic. If you’ve visited the city, like myself, you’ll definitely appreciate them.

New Divergent Movie Trailer Is The Most Intense Yet

In: Donovan, Movies

It’s definitely a big movie news day today. In addition to Malificent and Fifty Shades of Grey news, Divergent released a brand new trailer and it’s their most intense yet. I wonder if the studio is trying to steal a bit of Catching Fire’s thunder or simply riding the wave. With The Hunger Games sequel out in certain markets, Katniss fever is at an all-time high.

The new trailer gives us a deeper look into Shailene Woodley’s character Tris Prior as she prepares for her virtue test. There’s more peeks into the actual test and her training when she finds out she’s a Divergent. Also, we get our first look at Ashley Judd as her mom and even more scenes of the fabulous Kate Winslet. I admit, I’m mostly interested in the film due to Winslet. Just adore her. Check out the trailer below.

The First Official Trailer For Divergent Is Here

In: Donovan, Movies

In between Miley Cyrus fingering herself for Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake’s very, very, very brief reunion with ‘N Sync, MTV aired the first movie trailer for the highly-anticipated film, Divergent. If you thought the 13 second teaser released last week was glorious, the minute-long clip will have you watering at the mouth. Especially if you’ve read the best-selling young-adult books which the movie is based on.

Divergent is set in a futuristic Chicago where people are divided into five factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a sinister plot to destroy her kind, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it’s too late. The film also stars the incomparable Kate Winslet, fierce Maggie Q and that sexy English stud, Theo James.

On a side note. Winslet is totally giving me Jodie Foster Elysium realness but without a weird mashed up accent. If you saw the Matt Damon film, you know exactly what I’m referring to. What was that?

Divergent hits theaters on March 21, 2014. I predict Tris will give Katniss from The Hunger Games a run for her money as the baddest kick-ass literary heroine. Check out the movie trailer below.

In Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Harry Osborn was played by James Franco. Now it seems director Marc Webb has found his Osborn for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Reportedly, the new Harry beat out stiff competition for the role. Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet) were just a few names reportedly up for the role. Webb calls this actor “an exciting and extraordinary young actor and he is a fantastic addition to our cast.”

Speaking of cast, Andrew Garfield returns as the masked vigilante as does Emma Stone to reprise her role of Gwen Stacy. For the second installment, Stone has competition for Spidey’s heart. Mary Jane Watson arrives and will be played by Shailene Woodley (The Descendants). Her addition was confirmed previously as was Jamie Foxx’s casting as the villainous Electro. Filming reportedly will begin early 2013 with a tentative release date of May 2, 2014 planned. Find out who’s playing Peter Parker’s best friend below.
