Jason Bateman's Latest
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
LOS ANGELES -- It's a given at multiplexes these days that despite switch-off-your-cell-phone announcements and the occasional grumbling protest, whatever's onscreen will have to compete with tiny pockets of light from audience members unable to stay off their handhelds. Watching those glow patches come and go during "Disconnect" reinforces the film's position on how desensitized we've become to these technological intrusions. Not that Henry-Alex Rubin's schematic multi-strand drama is at all shy about articulating its themes. Directing his first narrative feature, documentary-maker Rubin ("Murderball") has assembled a solid cast and weaves together the three interconnected stories of Andrew Stern's original screenplay with elegance and efficiency. But this is a film that voices its warning about the hazards of a wired existence with solemn self-importance. It's also quite late in the day to be pointing out that we're so plugged into our devices we often fail to see or hear ...

Marshall Fine: Movie Review: Disconnect
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Disconnect is in the Crash / Nashville / Short Cuts school of story-telling, bringing together three disparate storylines that ultimately provide echoes and resonance between themselves, while involving people of tangential connection. But in Henry-Alex Rubin's film, from Andrew Stern's script, the connections -- or the way they're made -- is the point. In that respect, Disconnect, opening in limited release Friday (4/12/13), is exciting, disturbing and provocative. With its look at our everyday interactions -- and the way our lives have been taken over by devices meant to help us communicate but which do the opposite -- it's a cautionary tale that will leave you shaken and stirred. Still, to call it a tech thriller is to miscommunicate what it is about. While technology is the enabler is this story about human vulnerability and cruelty, it is not the villain. It is not even the decider. Rather, it is merely the vehicle, the distraction into which the characters chann ...

Meet Norma Bates
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
NEW YORK -- Vera Farmiga has some advice for Norma Bates, her character in the new series "Bates Motel": "Honesty is always the best policy." Honesty – or the lack of it – is a key theme in the 10-episode prequel to the classic Hitchcock film "Psycho." The A&E show, which premieres Monday at 10 p.m., reveals just what drove Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) over the edge. In an interview Monday, the Oscar-nominated actress said Norman and his mother, Norma, are "harboring a dark secret which will unfold as the series continues." Along with the everyday angst most parents experience, Norma "knows something about him that I think makes her hyper-protective," Farmiga said. Farmiga didn't have a lot to go from to create her character. In "Psycho," Norman's mother was a skeletal role. (Although Farmiga did reveal that in an upcoming episode she dons the same hairstyle as Norman's mother from the original film.) Farmiga, who has two toddlers of her own, said she ...

Jennifer Lawrence Says Max Thieriot Was 'Strange And Scary' On Their Horror-Film Set
MTV News - about 4 years
From Norman Bates to Freddy Krueger, every great horror movie needs a really grim and grody villain to propel its story forward—and to keep the female cast members shrieking in terror for all 120 minutes of screen time. And in this cool behind-the-scenes look at "House at the End of the Street" (out on DVD and Blu-ray today), newly minted scream queen Jennifer Lawrence has nothing but compliments for the man who terrorized her on-screen. "Max is a really great actor," she said—referring, of course, to one-time Hump Day Hottie Max Thieriot, who plays the role of the mysterious neighbor who may or may not be hiding some dark-and-dirty secrets in the basement beneath his house. In fact, according to Jennifer, her co-star's talents run so deep as to be a bit creepy: "He can just turn on and off, and it's very strange to watch the light in his eyes kind of get dark the instant [the director] calls 'Action.'" Chilling! But, says Jennifer, it made her role as the perpetually fri ...

Roland Emmerich, ‘White House Down’ and the ‘Die Hard’ Formula
News In FILM - almost 5 years
Last month, Sony Pictures picked up a spec script titled White House Down, written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man). Sources say it sold for $3 million, a pricey purchase in the revitalized spec market and the largest sale of the year. At the very least, the buzzed-about purchase is a good sign that Sony executives are happy with his The Amazing Spider-Man script, and they are certainly willing to pay to make sure he is happy too. Then, a week ago, director Roland Emmerich was reportedly in talks to make White House Down his next feature, all but promising his usual bombastic brand of large-scale action (Deadline). Emmerich is the same director who famously obliterated the President’s house in his 1996 blockbuster Independence Day and toppled more historical landmarks the world over in 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow. Except, this time, the action will take place primarily on the inside of the West Wing, where a paramilitary group is staging a coup of the U.S. g ...
