Teaser Watch: Zoey Deutch Is a Vigilante in “Flower”

Flower

ARed Band teaser trailer has dropped for Zoey Deutch-starrer “Flower.” “I know what goes down in this town behind closed doors,” says Erica (Deutch). And the 17-year-old feels compelled to do something about it. “We’re vigilantes,” she explains. “It’s our moral obligation.” But the fact that we see her threatening to take someone’s money rather than take him to court suggests that she’s less concerned about her moral obligation than seizing opportunities to make cash.

Erica lives with “her single mom Laurie (Kathryn Hahn) and mom’s new boyfriend Bob (Tim Heidecker) in suburban Los Angeles,” “Flower’s” official synopsis details. “When Bob’s mentally unbalanced son Luke (Joey Morgan) arrives from rehab to live with the family, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and sidekicks Kala (Dylan Gelula) and Claudine (Maya Eshet) in tow, Erica acts out by exposing

The Year of the Woman: 5 Ways Female Filmmakers, Actresses, and Advocates Forever Changed Hollywood in 2017

The Year of the Woman: 5 Ways Female Filmmakers, Actresses, and Advocates Forever Changed Hollywood in 2017
Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future. This week, we look back on a monumental year, for better or worse.

Ask enough women in Hollywood about being a woman in Hollywood, and eventually a theme emerges: conversation is great, and the acknowledgement of the skewed numbers and lack of equality is essential. It’s a discussion that needs to happen, but won’t it be great when we can stop just talking and put words into action?

It’s a two-pronged dream — that conversation will move past chatter and produce real results, and that those results will create a world where inequality becomes a thing of the past.

But talking has a way of being one-sided and, as it turns out, there needed to be one more step in between the chatter and actually moving things forward. That finally happened in 2017, the year people stopped talking,

Happy Death Day Slashes Past $100 Million at the Box Office
Blumhouse's Happy Death Day has passed the $100 million mark worldwide and is continuing to earn money. Directed by Christopher Landon, Happy Death Day is the third original movie from Blumhouse in 2017. It joins blockbuster movies Split and Get Out, which have grossed $278.3 million and $253.4 million, respectively, worldwide. The latter has received five Independent Spirit Awards nominations. A lot has been said about box office woes this year, but some movies have been able to break through and earn some major profits, Happy Death Day now being one of them.

One of the biggest stories in the entertainment industry this year besides the stories of sexual misconduct has been the dismal year at the box office. Variety dubbed it "officially the worst in over a decade," while others claim that it's been the worst year at the box office in over 2 decades. While there have been some success stories, the horror

Joe Carnahan to Direct Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson in Action Thriller ‘Boss Level’

The Groundhog Day premise—a protagonist has to keep reliving the same day—has been adapted numerous times, and as recently as this year we got Before I Fall and Happy Death Day. The latter was a spin on the slasher genre where the hero died every day and had to find her killer. It now looks like Joe Carnahan will be playing along those lines with his upcoming action thriller Boss Level. According to Deadline, “Every day, a retired special forces veteran is trapped in a never ending loop resulting in his death. In order to stop his endless …

‘Happy Death Day’ Review: ‘Groundhog Day’ Gets a Horror Remake That’s Better at Scaring Up Laughs Than Screams

‘Happy Death Day’ Review: ‘Groundhog Day’ Gets a Horror Remake That’s Better at Scaring Up Laughs Than Screams
Christopher B. Landon’s “Happy Death Day” doesn’t break out its first “Groundhog Day” joke until well into its third act, but the Jason Blum-produced horror film wears its cinematic pedigree with seeming pride. You can practically hear the pitch that sold the film: it’s the classic Bill Murray comedy, but as a horror film — and centered on a bratty co-ed who gets brutally murdered every night, and is forced to relive the whole thing the next day.

Even the most basic of building blocks are in place, from an initially unlikable protagonist to a generous serving of montages and even an overarching message about the power of being a good person (at one point, a character screams, “love is love!” and it’s both totally endearing and hilariously out of place). But while such a formula has been memorably applied to other genres with strong results — earlier this year,

'Annabelle' Sequel Eyes $30+ Million Opening as Summer Slow Down Continues

'Annabelle' Sequel Eyes $30+ Million Opening as Summer Slow Down Continues
Saturday Am Update: WB and New Line's Annabelle: Creation is off to an excellent start, bringing in an estimated $15 million on Friday (including $4 million from Thursday previews) on its way to a weekend around $35 million if not more. It's also great news for director David F. Sandberg who helmed last year's hit Lights Out for WB. That film went on to gross nearly $150 million worldwide on a budget under $5 million. The film received a "B" CinemaScore, matching the score for the first film. Open Road's The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature is performing even worse than expected, delivering an estimated $3 million on Friday. This is already shaping up to be the lowest opening for a film playing in over 4,000 theaters by a wide margin.

Marlon Wayans in First Trailer for Time Loop Film 'Naked' from Netflix

"I'm freakin' out!" Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a goofy comedy titled Naked, another new time loop film (in addition to two others this year alone - Before I Fall and Happy Death Day). From the director of the parody comedy A Haunted House, Marlon Wayans stars in Naked as a guy about to be married, who ignores his responsibilities and spends the night before the wedding partying with a friend. He wakes up naked in an elevator and must relive the next hour until he gets things right on his wedding day. Yeah, what a unique concept. The full ensemble cast features Regina Hall, Dennis Haysbert, Scott Foley, Loretta Devine, Neil Brown Jr., Dave Sheridan, Megan Messmer, Jonathan Todd Jackson, and Cory Hardrict. As much as I usually enjoy time loop films, this one looks pretty bad. Doubt I'll be watching this. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Michael Tiddes' Naked,

‘Power Rangers’ Debuts Atop Home-Video Charts

‘Power Rangers’ Debuts Atop Home-Video Charts
“Saban’s Power Rangers,” the third theatrical feature film based on the TV superhero series “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” debuted at No. 1 on all three home video charts the week ended July 2, giving Lionsgate yet another triple-play victory in the DVD and Blu-ray Disc arena.

The big-budget reboot, which earned more than $85 million in U.S. theaters, was the week’s top seller and rental, bowing at No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales; Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart; and Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart.

On the two sales charts, Walt Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” moved back into the No. 2 position after reappearing in the top spot the previous week.

Another Lionsgate release, “John Wick: Chapter 2,” came in at No. 3, also on both charts. The film had occupied the same position the prior week on the overall disc chart

The 17 Best Indie Movies of 2017 (So Far)

The 17 Best Indie Movies of 2017 (So Far)
Yes, we know: It’s a little premature to assemble a list of the best movies of the year when there’s so much left of it. We have yet to see a lot of exciting new work from major auteurs like Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), Alexander Payne (“Downsizing”), and Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), not to mention heavy-hitting studio-produced spectacles like “Blade Runner 2049” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” But those last two wouldn’t even qualify for this list of the best independent films of the year, anyway, and they’ll have plenty of time to hog the spotlight.

Fortunately, we’ve found plenty of movies from around the world to celebrate, and while they haven’t all been box office sensations, they provide overwhelming evidence that the art form is thriving well into the second decade of the new millennium, and shows no signs of slowing down.
