Spielberg’s 1975 classic is headed to selected US theatres this summer.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the theatre think again, as Steven Spielberg’s terrifying 1975 horror classic Jaws is headed back to cinema’s to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary.
Steven Spielberg first bought Jaws to cinema’s in 1975.
Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are coming together to bring the film back to theatres this summer, for a limited time on June 21 and June 24 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m in select cinemas nationwide.
With a strong cast and striking production values, this thriller is sleek enough to hold our interest even if corporate espionage isn't a very exciting topic for the movies. As the title suggests, the film is trying to tap into the fear that our lives are being controlled by technology. But the script never goes anywhere with this idea, instead drifting through the usual plot involving shady bad guys, dark conspiracies and plucky heroics. All of which we've seen far too many times before.
It centres on young technical genius Adam (Hemsworth), who needs cash to pay the medical bills for his ill father (Dreyfuss). Working with his pal Kevin (Till), he goes for a big promotion but is instead sacked by his boss Wyatt (Oldman). The next morning, Wyatt makes Adam an offer he can't refuse: a chance to earn a fortune by spying on chief competitor Goddard (Ford). But this new undercover job brings all kinds of worries as Adam sees shadowy nastiness lurking around every corner. He's also suspicious that a recent one-night stand, Emma (Heard), works for Goddard. And that there's a strange man (Holloway) following his every move.
Rather than explore corrupt corporate culture or the idea that technology has eroded our privacy, the filmmakers create a fairly pedestrian thriller that tries to blind us with fake techno-speak and corny emotions. The plot continually hints that it will get darker and more momentous, but it never does. All of the stakes feel oddly small, the chain of events doesn't quite hang together and the characters never feel like more than rough outlines.

'Paranoia' appears to be a well-cast movie, including performances from Liam Hemsworth, Richard Dreyfuss and Gary Oldman.
Based on the 2004 novel of the same name, Liam Hemsworth's new movie Paranoia actually might not be instantly forgettable. The Hunger Games actor plays technology whizz Adam Cassidy who attempts to balance caring for his ailing father while working a low-paid job at a technology conglomerate. His fortunes begin to turn when his boss Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) offers him the chance to get rich quick.
Cassidy quickly learns that the job involves infiltrating the firm's biggest rival business (led by his old mentor Jock Goddard) in a dangerous act of espionage. Despite completing the job, Adam's resignation is refused - he now knows too much.
Adam Cassidy is a technology whizz who wants nothing more than to take care of his ailing father who is struggling to live in poverty-stricken retirement despite working all his life. He has a low-paid job at a massive technology corporation but is presented with the chance of a lifetime by his boss Nicholas Wyatt who tells him he can make him rich. However, this involves infiltrating the firm's biggest rival business led by Wyatt's old mentor Jock Goddard in a plot of dangerous espionage to uncover their biggest secret. He finally succeeds in obtaining a revolutionary piece of equipment and presenting it to Wyatt, but he finds himself trapped as his boss refuses to let him leave the company as he now knows too much. Realising that he and his beloved father are in danger not only from Wyatt but from Goddard as well after discovering their ploy, he sets out to use what they taught him to destroy what they built.
Based on the 2004 novel of the same name by Joseph Finder, 'Paranoia' has been directed by Robert Luketic ('Legally Blonde', 'Monster-in-Law', 'Killers') with a screenplay by Jason Dean Hall ('Spread') and Barry Levy ('Vantage Point'). This corporate action thriller is set to hit the US on August 16th 2013.
When a girl leaving a beach party on Amity Island, New England goes for an evening swim in the Atlantic, she is brutally attacked and eaten by a colossal great white shark. While the Mayor refuses to close the beach out of fear that the lack of tourism that would ensue would have a huge financial backlash on the town, another person is brutally killed. A bounty is placed on the shark which motivates amateur shark-hunters to go after it. However, they only managed to capture and kill a tiger shark which, while putting the public at ease as they assume it was the same creature, raises suspicions amongst a not so easily fooled group of people in the shape of a police chef, a fisherman and a marine scientist who determinedly set out to find and destroy the real menace.
