New Drama ‘The Lobster’ Seeing Limited Theatrical Release This Friday

Foreign writer/director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Alps) has a new comedic drama seeing a limited theatrical release this Friday titled The Lobster. The film was won several awards at the Cannes Film Festival last year, and with nothing but positive review from critics and audiences, anticipation for an American release has been pretty high. Co-written with Lanthimos’ long-time collaborator Efthymis Filippou, the film is set in a future dystopian society, in which single individuals are taken to The Hotel in order to find a romantic partner within 45 days, or be transformed into wild beasts and banished to live in The Woods. Definitely sounds pretty strange, but that is Lanthimos’ style, so it’s actually not far off the mark considering his portfolio. Starring in the film are actors Colin Farrell (Phone Booth, Miami Vice), Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener, The Fountain), Jessica Barden (Hanna, Far From The Maddening Crowd), and Olivia Colman (The Iron Lady, Locke), among a supporting cast including John C. Reilly (The Good Girl, Chicago) and Ben Whishaw (Spectre, In The Heart of the Sea). Check it out in theaters if it’s playing in your local area this weekend.

The new movie is written and directed by Paul Feig (The Office, Bridesmaids) with co-writer Katie Dippold (MADtV, Parks and Recreation), and takes place 30 years after the original films, when a new group of unlikely heros steps up to save New York from paranormal forces. Original Ghostbusters stars Bill Murray (Caddyshack, Stripes), Dan Aykroyd (The Blues Brothers, Tommy Boy), Ernie Hudson (The Crow, Miss Congeniality), Sigourney Weaver (Alien, Avatar), and Annie Potts (Pretty in Pink, Toy Story) are also expected to appear alongside the movie’s supporting cast, which includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers), Elizabeth Perkins (Big, Weeds), Andy Garcia (The Godfather Part 3, Ocean’s Eleven), and Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years A Slave, Inherent Vice). The movie won’t be in theaters until this July, but the trailer is available here on MADE. Enjoy!

New Comedy With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler ‘Sisters’ Opening In Theaters This Friday

For those who are boycotting Hollywood’s ‘Re-make Era’ or simply have no interest in sitting in a jam-packed theater this Friday night with a bunch of kids and teenagers trying to see the new Star Wars feature, a new comedy with Golden Globe co-hosts Tina Fey (Mean Girls, 30 Rock) and Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation) titled Sisters can offer you the perfect alternative! Working with director Jason Moore (Everwood, Pitch Perfect) from a script by Emmy winner Paula Pell (Saturday Night Live, The Oscars), the comedy vets pose as sisters (appropriately) who decide to throw one last party in their old family home before their parents finally sell it. Also making appearances in the film are actors Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, Inherent Vice), Ike Barinholtz (Disaster Movie, Neighbors), James Brolin (Traffic, Catch Me If You Can), Diane Wiest (The Lost Boys, I Am Sam), John Cena (The Marine, Trainwreck), and John Leguizamo (The Lincoln Lawyer, Chef). I wouldn’t really expect this one to be fall-on-your-ass comedy, but Fey and Poehler are excellent comedic vets and work really well together, so if you’re not in the long line to see The Force Awakens, I would definitely give this one some consideration. Enjoy!

Director Danny Boyle’s New Steve Jobs Biopic Opening In New York & LA This Week

Although a nationwide theatrical expansion is not expected until the end of October, the new biographical drama from Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) titled Steve Jobs is opening to audiences in New York City and Los Angeles this week. The new film is based on the book of the same title by author Walter Isaacson, adapted for the screen by Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (Charlie Wilson’s War, The Social Network), focusing not only on three pivotal points in Jobs’ career as a modern technological entrepreneur, but also on the affects it had on his personal and family life, as well as his health. Leading the cast as Jobs and his Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak are actors Michael Fassbender (Inglorious Basterds, 12 Years A Slave) and Seth Rogen (The Interview, Neighbors), with Oscar-winner Kate Winslet (Titanic, The Reader), Jeff Daniels (Speed, The Newsroom), Katherine Waterston (Michael Clayton, Inherent Vice), and Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire, Trumbo) making up the supporting cast. From the looks of the trailer, it looks to be a more brutally honest depiction of Jobs’ life and work and hopefully will have more success than the 2013 flop Jobs with Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad as Jobs and Wazniak, but we’ll have to wait and see how audiences respond. Look for the movie in a theater near you this October 23rd.

2010 Mystery-Drama ‘Shanghai’ Will See Limited Release This Friday

This week, a 2010 mystery-drama from the Weinstein Company will finally see a limited American release after having spent five years waiting on the studio shelves. Director Mikael Hafstrom (1408, The Rite) and producer Harvey Weinstein were set to begin principle photography on the film Shanghai in 2008 when the Chinese government suddenly pulled their permits, forcing the production to relocate to Thailand and England to complete filming. The film is a period piece, set in Japanese-occupied Shanghai in the 1940s just months before the attack on Pearl Harbor occurs, and follows an American who returns to probe the mysterious death of his friend. As the mystery begins to unfold, however, and as he falls into a personal romantic relationship, the truth behind his friend’s death begins to reveal a much larger conspiracy at work. Starring in the lead role is actor John Cusack (2012, Hot Tub Time Machine), who has worked with director Hafstrom on the suspense-thriller 1408 in 2007. Also in the supporting cast are actors Li Gong (Miami Vice, Hannibal Rising), Yun-Fat Chow (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Curse of the Golden Flower), and David Morse (The Green Mile, The Hurt Locker). We’re not entirely sure why Weinstein decided to hold the US release back for so long, but this isn’t the first film the company has withheld from the public for a number of years before releasing it. Whatever the case, the Weinstein Company is usually pretty good about investing in worthwhile features, and the trailer reads more like an action-thriller than a romantic drama. Either way it should be a great watch. Enjoy!
