   DEAR WHITE PEOPLE

Dear White People Movie PosterThe unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show “Dear White People” to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-house Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), son of the university’s dean (Dennis Haysbert), defies his father’s lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, the college’s influential humor magazine. Lionel Higgins (Tyler James Williams), an Afro-sporting sci-fi geek, is recruited by the otherwise all-white student newspaper to go undercover and write about black culture—a subject he knows little about—while the aggressively assimilated Coco Conners (Teyonah Parris) tries to use the controversy on campus to carve out a career in reality TV.

But no one at Winchester University is prepared for Pastiche’s outrageous, ill-conceived annual Halloween party, with its “unleash your inner Negro” theme throwing oil on an already smoldering fire of resentment and misunderstanding. When the party descends into riotous mayhem, everyone must choose a side.

Soon, Eric is prowling the streets of Brooklyn in search of anything to satisfy both his maniacal sex drive and his hunger for blood.

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA – Trailer

October 17th, 2014

Here is the trailer from the upcoming film “IN THE HEART OF THE SEA”. The stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers,” “Rush”) as the vessel’s veteran first mate Owen Chase; Benjamin Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) as its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard; Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) as second mate Matthew Joy; and Ben Whishaw (“Skyfall”) as novelist Herman Melville, whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light.

Tom Holland (“The Impossible”) also stars as young seaman Tom Nickerson, and Brendan Gleeson (“Edge of Tomorrow”) as the same man, 30 years later. Spanish actor Jordi Mollá (“Riddick”) is the captain of another ship, the Archimedes, who tries to warn the Essex of what may lie ahead.

Howard directed from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt (“Blood Diamond”), story by Charles Leavitt and Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), based on the book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick, winner of the 2000 National Book Award for Nonfiction.
The film will be released on March 13, 2015

Oscar winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

BY THE GUN – Trailer

October 17th, 2014

Here is the trailer from the upcoming film “ BY THE GUN ”. The Film directed by James Mottern, starring Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel and Toby Jones.

Millennium Entertainment will release BY THE GUN in theaters and OnDemand/iTunes December 5, 2014.

By The Gun is a French / Italian – financed production filmed on location in Boston. Written by Emilio Mauro, a Boston Native of Italian American descent based on real life dealings with the current state of the mafia in the Boston’s North End. By The Gun tells the gritty story of Nick Tortano (Ben Barnes), a smooth-talking, ambitious young man from the streets of Boston.

A good kid at heart, Nick got caught up in the street lifestyle he was exposed to while growing up in Boston’s North End. He began running with the wrong crowd and was soon fully immersed in a life of petty crime. The eldest son of two first generation Italian parents, Nick always felt the pressure to contribute to the family’s American dream, especially once that dream stopped making ends meet. After his mother passed, his father (Paul Ben-Victor) refused to accept his help financially, even though it was needed to help support his younger brother Vitto (Kenny Wormald). Nick never gained acceptance from his father, who looked down on Nick for his lifestyle.

The constant rejection from his father caused Nick to begin idolizing another, even tighter-knit, family who had no problem accepting him: the Boston mafia. Following a couple stints in jail, Nick began working with the organization to prove himself worthy of becoming a Made Man. Nick’s hard work finally paid off, catching the attention of the boss (Harvey Keitel) and securing himself a place on the inside.

His dream finally came true, but unfortunately, once inside, Nick quickly realizes that the mafia isn’t the powerhouse it used to be. A once well-respected and feared organization now seems more like a social club for aging gangsters. Frustrated, Nick decides to take matters into his own hands and help raise the organization’s status back up to where it should be. With the help of his best friend George (Slaine), Nick starts going behind the boss’ back to find new ways to make money and expand the business. Nick is on top of the world. He has become well respected within the community, is making good money, and even met a girl (Leighton Meester) who is everything he has ever wanted; but his high doesn’t last long. He soon finds out that there are things he doesn’t understand going on behind his back, and although his intentions were good, making his own rules and running with a wildcard like George lands him and those around him in grave danger, ultimately costing him everything.

October 16th, 2014

David Krumholtz, Josh Pais, James Dumont and Wrenn Schmidt have joined Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen in I SAW THE LIGHT, the story of legendary country western singer Hank Williams, who in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music.

I SAW THE LIGHT will be directed by Marc Abraham from his screenplay which chronicles William’s meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. It is based on Colin Escott’s award winning biography.
A RatPac Entertainment presentation of A Bron Studios/RatPac Entertainment production, in association with Creative Wealth Media Finance, I SAW THE LIGHT will begin production this week in Louisiana. RatPac’s Brett Ratner and Bron Studios Aaron L. Gilbert produce alongside G. Marq Roswell and Mark Abraham. James Packer will executive produce for RatPac Entertainment.

Josh Pais has appeared on The Good Wife, Ray Donovan and Law & Order: SVU, and plays Dore Schary, one-time production president of MGM. Though smooth and savvy, he still can’t convince Williams to be movie star.
