The Guest Trailer


After Caleb Peterson dies whilst fighting on the frontline in the war in Afghanistan, his family back home are overcome with grief. Comfort appears to present itself in the form of a friendly handsome stranger named David, who knocks on the Petersons' door claiming that he fought alongside Caleb, and promised him that he would take care of his family if he should fall. Mrs. Peterson welcomes David with open arms, glad of some respite finally, and while Caleb's brother and sister Anna and Luke are wary of their guest, David's winning smile and unceasing helpfulness soon gains their trust. However, it seems there's more than meets the eye with their visitor, as the family discover how a set of unexplained deaths have been linked to him, and it seems his intentions may not be so honourable after all.

CBGB Trailer


In 1973, New York nightclub CBGB opened as a venue for Country, BlueGrass and Blues acts led by music entrepreneur Hilly Kristal. However, it soon became clear that that wasn't the way the music scene was going in the city and he soon began to book new rock and punk bands - excluding all cover and tribute bands - to play regular shows there which helped raise the profile of several musical pioneers including Talking Heads, Blondie, The Ramones and the Patti Smith Group. It wasn't the easiest ride for Kristal, however, who suffered many money troubles due to his vision and ambition for the bands that he showcased, as well as much scrutiny over the general poor health and safety of the venue. Nonetheless (and despite its closure in 2006), it will always been known as the kick off point for so many 70s and 80s bands.

Randall Miller ('Nobel Son', 'Bottle Shock', 'Houseguest') directs this music drama alongside his frequent writing partner Jody Savin as it follows the highs and lows of Hilly Kristal's life and ambition to give innovative local bands a chance at success. The movie will premiere at the CBGB Festival over its October 10th-13th weekend; not far off the anniversary of its 2006 official closure.

The first pictures of the potentially dodgy looking CBGB movie have been revealed, showing the film's stars filming in the specially built CBGBs nightclub set up. Obviously the most notable star here is Malin Akerman who is shown as Blondie's Debbie Harry for the first time - she's seen here in the below photo with Taylor Hawkins, who plays proto-punk pioneer and general gadabout Iggy Pop.

Hawkins of course is a member of a band in real life - the Foo Fighters. The Ramones are another band set to appear in the film, with Joel David Moore, Steven Schub and Julian Acosta set to portray Joey, DeeDee and Johnny Ramone respectively. Twilight star Ashley Greene is also onboard to play Lisa Kristal, daughter of the CBGB owner Hilly Kristal. You can see what she's looking like in the gallery link at the bottom of the article.

Grassroots Review


OK

There's a terrific sense of righteous anger in this scruffy comedy about disenfranchised people shaking American politics to its core. But the film plays it far too safely, dealing lightly with important themes while refusing to take a real stand on anything. It also never makes the most of its likeable, fully invested cast.

Based on a true story, the film is set in 2001 Seattle, where long-time buddies Phil and Grant (Biggs and Moore) are both unemployed journalists. When Grant decides to run for city council, Phil helps with the campaign. Grant's main passion is public transportation, which he sees as a social justice issue since it's what allows lower-income people to work and improve their lives. And his counter-culture approach makes him stand out opposite the unruffled incumbent (Cedric). On the other hand, Phil's girlfriend Emily (Ambrose) starts to worry when Grant's campaign becomes a centre for frat-boy antics, including rather a lot of pot-smoking. But this populist approach is like a breath of fresh air to voters.

Watching these no-hopers take on a well-oiled political machine is pretty inspirational, especially when the characters have so much raw charm. Biggs is superb in the central role, grounding even the most chaotic scenes in earthy honesty. By contrast, Moore feels a little overwrought as the hyperactive Grant, which makes us wonder why anyone would take him seriously. Although he nicely brings out Grant's inner resolve. And both Ambrose and Cedric add complex layers to their rather thinly written characters.
