Free State Of Jones Trailer


The brutal reality of war is those who often die and put their lives on the line are the ones who reap the smallest of rewards. If you're no longer fighting for your freedom, for some there's no point to continue risking your life. When Newton Knight is faced with the death of a young boy, it's enough for him to begin questioning exactly what and who he is fighting for.

Forced to go on the run Newton helps many folk on the way and also goes on a journey of self-discovery, one that leads him to fight a fight that's really worth dying for. With the help of some slaves, who are also on the run, Newton and the people of Jones County begin to fight back and take back the land from the wealthy and put it in the hands of the people.

Free State of Jones is based on the true story of Newton Knight and it directed by Gary Ross.

Sandra Bullock To Lead All-Female Cast Of 'Ocean's Eleven' Re-Make


Sandra Bullock George Clooney Gary Ross Steven Soderbergh

Sandra Bullock is to lead the cast of an all-female re-boot of the classic movie Ocean’s Eleven, according to a new report. The project will also see her re-unite with her Our Brand Is Crisis collaborator George Clooney, who will be taking up a production role.

It’s the latest example of Hollywood’s recent preference for re-booting old movies with a female cast, such as the upcoming Ghostbusters movie which stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and the Marvel comic book adaptation Doctor Strange, which will feature Tilda Swinton as 'The Ancient One', a role that was originally thought to be occupied by a male actor.

Jennifer Lawrence Gary Ross

Jennifer Lawrence will star in the movie version of John Steinbeck’s East of Eden, and Hunger Games director Gary Ross will direct. The pair have proved to be a marketable duo with their work on the Hunger Games trilogy, and look to continue that success. Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer will produce.

East of Eden, written by the Nobel Prize-winning author Steinbeck – an American hero of literature – is set in the Salinas California. The story takes place at the dawn of the 20th century through until the end of the First World War. It’s a character drama, exploring themes of success, depravity, guilt and freedom.

Jennifer Lawrence has signed on to star in a film adaption of the 1952 novel 'East of Eden' that was originally written by American author John Steinbeck.

Deadline reports the 23 year old actress is reteaming with 'The Hunger Games' director, Gary Ross, who parted ways with entertainment company Lionsgate after the first instalment of the science fiction franchise. Universal Pictures are behind the novels transformation to the big screen as Brian Grazier and Image Entertainment will produce, with Anna Culp as executive producer.

The Hunger Games Comic-Con 2013 panel was a huge success. Six of the upcoming sequel Catching Fire's actors sat on the panel. These included: Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen); Josh Hutcherson (Peeta); Jeffrey Wright (Beetee); Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale).

Lawrence impressed fans with her anecdotes of clumsiness and her gentle humour. She commented on the difficulties she faced whilst filming physical scenes, stating "running and trying not to hit myself in the face with my bow, those were my two greatest challenges." She also referenced one scene in which she wears -in a propaganda photograph shoot- a vast wedding dress: five feet in diameter. Of the costume she said it "was one of the hardest things I've done in my life".

The Hunger Games Review


Excellent
Proclaimed "the next big franchise" before production even began, this first chapter of Suzanne Collins' trilogy manages to live up to the hype. It's rare to see a blockbuster with such a sharp political sensibility. And the actors are terrific in complex roles.

In what was once North America, the ruling class demands an annual sacrifice of the 12 districts that once rebelled: each must select two teens, a boy and a girl, to battle in a wooded arena to the death, with the last one standing crowned victor. In the poor mining District 12, the tributes are ace archer Katniss (Lawrence) and muscly baker Peeta (Hutcherson), who forge an awkward friendship as they're thrust into the televised competition. Trained by Haymitch (Harrelson), promoted by Effie (Banks), groomed by Cinna (Kravitz), interviewed by Caesar (Tucci) - it's simply overwhelming.

In the not too distant future, America has been destroyed by drought, famine and fires. In its place, Panem has emerged, split into twelve districts and ruled over by the Capitol.

The Tale Of Despereaux Review


OK
The Tale of Despereaux began life as a children's book, and the animated film version does its best to reproduce the sounds of a storybook: The characters, especially the brave little titular mouse, are earnest rather than wisecracking, and Sigourney Weaver speaks in soothing, empathetic tones as the narrator, just like mom. The movie might have looked a bit more like a lush picture book, though, if it had been hand-drawn rather than computer-generated.

Computers are now the default tools of the animation world, of course, and animators have produced many stunning and even personal images using them. But the animation in Despereaux is hardly state-of-the-art, and so in exchange for that token modernity we get the same waxy, deformed humans a computer could've struggled with in the late nineties. The mammals fare a bit better, but the movie's limited charm comes from its old-fashioned, homespun quality, not CGI breeze rustling through tiny CGI mouse hairs.

Continue reading: The Tale Of Despereaux Review

Big Review


Excellent
Now an iconic, breakthrough performance for Tom Hanks, Big is 100% cotton candy fun, an Adam Sandler movie with more of a brain and a heart. Even a soul. The story has become timeless -- and it's kept Penny Marshall's career alive for almot 20 years now -- about a boy who sees that adults have everything that he doesn't, so he wishes to be "big." When he gets his wish, comedy and some touching moments where young Josh learns, real quick, about the difference between kids and grown-ups. Very funny, with good performances from everyone in the film. Though, if her kid was ostensibly kidnapped, why wouldn't mom (Mercedes Ruehl) call the cops?

Seabiscuit Review


Extraordinary
Regular readers know (or are expected to know) that I enjoy only two sports: boxing and horse racing. Sadly, movies about these two subjects almost always suck, probably having something to do with the fact that most of boxing's competitors are egomaniacal sociopaths and that the typical horse race lasts for only two minutes.

And so we come to Seabiscuit, the true story of a small, unruly race horse of great breeding but poor disposition who found himself sold for scrap. Despite his attitude, he eventually became one of the greatest racers in history. (Believe it or not there's already been one Seabiscuit-inspired movie... the first one starring Shirley Temple.)
