Remember Crash? Like several of its other Best Picture-winning brethren, Crash is a film that no one has really thought about since it won the Oscar (like The King’s Speech…and The Artist…), but Anesthesia remembers it very well. The new film from actor / director Tim Blake Nelson has debuted a trailer, featuring Kristen Stewart, Corey Stoll, and several other very likable people whom you often enjoy in other films. So what happens when you put them together in an interconnected narrative about humanity…or something…? See for yourself.
Not to be confused with the Lifetime Original movie about Lizzie Borden starring Christina Ricci (or the baffling follow-up miniseries), a new untitled thriller about the notorious axe-wielding parent-killer is in the works and has given us two very good reasons to see it: Kristen Stewart and frequent American Horror Story star Chloe Sevigny — don’t get any ideas, Ryan Murphy.
A late August release date typically means one of two things: A movie is terrible or a movie is weird — and therefore difficult to market. American Ultra is a classic example of the latter. The trailers and posters mostly sell it as a wacky stoner action comedy, but drug humor actually plays a fairly small part in the film, which cycles through scenes of bloody horror, government conspiracy, and sincere relationship melodrama. Audiences might go in to American Ultra expecting The Bourne Identity meets Half Baked. They’re going to find something much stranger and more interesting (with a bunch of First Blood and a smidge of rom-com tossed in the mix).
While some of you may scoff at the notion of Jesse Eisenberg playing Lex Luthor, here’s a role he’s undoubtedly well-suited to play: a stoner convenience store clerk. Okay, except he’s also a sleeper agent for a secret government program, and in the latest trailer for American Ultra, he kills two guys with a spoon. A spoon.
Watching the American Ultra trailer, it‘s easy to imagine the quick pitch that sold everyone on this project. What if you merged The Bourne Identity with a stoner comedy? And made it so violent and filthy that it required a NSFW red band preview to properly sell its contents? Oh, and what if it stars Jesse Eisenberg as the world’s least likely black ops assassin and Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend? Yeah, American Ultra certainly looks nutty.
Kristen Stewart has done very well distancing herself from the Twilight saga with a series of roles proving her worth as a very talented actress — Still Alice, Camp X-Ray and Clouds of Sils Maria have showcased Stewart’s dramatic chops, but it’s the latter in which she gave her most impressive performance to date. So it’s definitely good news that the actress is reuniting with her Clouds of Sils Maria director for another project.
Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but the prolific director has already begun planning his next project, which isn’t exactly surprising. Allen, who has consistently delivered one film each year, has selected an interesting trio of actors to headline his next, untitled project: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis. Bruce Willis in a Woody Allen film? What?
Attention, animal lovers! We've got a brand-new ambassador of adorableness for you to honor. Kristen Stewart hit 'The Tonight Show' to talk about her latest film, the drama 'Camp X-Ray,' and host Jimmy Fallon couldn't pass up the chance to ask her about the latest addition to her family. Turns out, Stewart is a big animal fan, and she's recently expanded her dog brood to include a new -- and very lucky -- little pup.
After four books, a slew of online fan fiction, merchandise, and five feature films, we all thought 'The Twilight Saga' had officially been laid to rest. But, as we learned from 'Game of Thrones,' "what is dead may never die." Lionsgate announced that a series of short films taking place in Stephanie Meyer's popular world of vampires and shapeshifters will be created by aspiring female filmmakers.
