TWO NIGHT STAND Trailer & Poster Starring Analeigh Tipton and Miles Teller

by     Posted 134 days ago


I remember hearing about Two Night Stand gearing up to shoot a few years ago and then it completely fell off the radar.  Today, it is once again a blip on the screen thanks to this new trailer.  The film is directed by Max Nichols (son of Graduate director Mike Nichols) from a Blacklist script by Mark Hammer and stars Miles Teller (fresh off shooting The Fantastic Four, which I believe went into production after this film) and Analeigh Tipton.

I’m a fan of Tipton’s and Teller seems like he’s got a few chops.  But while Two Night Stand actually looks pretty good for what it is, what it is… is not for me.  It’s certainly not offensive, in fact I find the idea of two young people engaging in a frank dialogue about how to be more considerate lovers to be a refreshing concept in today’s mainstream landscape.  Maybe it’s just that I’m a few years older than these characters and don’t need to delve back into that mindset.  Still, it’s nice that movies about, you know, people aren’t just limited to serious art house fare. Hit the jump for the Two Night Stand trailer.  The film hits theaters on September 26th.

LUCY Review

by     Posted 149 days ago


Luc Besson’s new film Lucy often feels like 10% of a movie, despite its very clear ambitions to be some sort of ultimate experience. Which is weird because it nails so many of its objectives.  It’s gorgeously shot.  It’s incredibly kinetic and, even when it’s not in the middle of an action scene, it’s rarely static.  Scarlett Johansson throws everything she has into the role (or, at least, gives the role everything it requires of her).  And yet I had to do everything I could to keep from falling asleep during the film’s turgid first act.

It’s ABC’s turn to get in on the renewal/pilot order fun, as the network has renewed three dramas and ordered a few others to series.  Briefly:

  • The network has also ordered three new dramas to series: the Viola Davis-fronted legal thriller How to Get Away with Murder from creator Shonda Rhimes, the racially charged American Crime from 12 Years a Slave scribe John Ridley, and the alien-invasion show The Whispers from executive producer Steven Spielberg.
  • On the comedy side, the pilots for Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish, the Karen Gillan-fronted Selfie, the romantic comedy Manhattan Love Story, and creator Dan Fogelman’s (The Neighbors) musical fairy tale Galavant have been ordered to series.

First Trailer and New Images for Luc Besson’s LUCY Starring Scarlett Johansson

by     Posted 262 days ago


Universal Pictures has released the first Lucy trailer.  Director Luc Besson‘s (The Fifth Element) upcoming action thriller stars Scarlett Johansson as a reluctant drug mule who is transformed into an incredible fighter capable of clairvoyance, telekinesis, and an ability to disregard pain and emotion when one of the designer drugs enters her system.  The flick looks fun and interesting.  I like that she gets her powers from a bag of blue goo leaking into her stomach, and when she those gets powers she starts to lose her emotions.  It’s a neat premise, and the action looks good.  Also, the Morgan Freeman narration reminds me of this scene from South Park.

Hit the jump to watch the Lucy trailer and to check out some new images.  The film also stars Analeigh Tipton.  Lucy opens in theaters August 8th.

BEN AND KATE Star Dakota Johnson Under Consideration for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Lead

by     Posted 1 year, 122 days ago


The feature film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey continues to move forward, slowly but surely.  Nearly a year after Universal and Focus Features landed the project, a director was finally set this past June in Nowhere Boy helmer Sam Taylor-Johnson.  At the time, Felicity Jones was reportedly “in the mix” to play the film’s female lead, Anastasia Steele, but a deal never materialized.  E.L. James’ erotic novels center on the relationship between the young college graduate and a young business magnate named Christian Grey.  While firm casting decisions have yet to be made, Taylor-Johnson is currently staring down an August 1, 2014 release date, so production has to get underway relatively soon.

As such, one actress that is reportedly being eyed to play Anastasia is Ben and Kate star and The Social Network standout Dakota Johnson.  Hit the jump for more.

Analeigh Tipton Talks WARM BODIES, TWO NIGHT STAND, Transitioning from Modeling to Acting, and More

by     Posted 1 year, 325 days ago


The “best friend” in romantic comedies can be the most unrewarding role.  Usually doting on the needs of the lead, the “best friend’s” wants and desires go unfulfilled (or just plain ignored).  She is a plot device given to voice the opinions of those around her.  In Warm Bodies, Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love) pokes gentle fun at this stereotype – becoming increasingly indignant that her best friend (and STAR of the picture) Julie gets all the guys (even the undead ones), whilst she –Nora– remains forever alone.  Tipton injects the smaller-than-it-should-be role with just the right amount of verve and sarcastic edge.  Hopefully someday soon, Tipton will find herself the lead, accomplishing all her wants and desires to the encouraging but unfulfilled grin of her own ‘bestie’.

In the following interview with Tipton, she discusses playing the “best friend” role, what types of roles she looks for and her upcoming ‘lead’ film Two Night Stand.  For the full interview, hit the jump.

First Image from CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE

by     Posted 3 years, 364 days ago

Warner Bros. has released the first image from director’s Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love You Phillip Morris) Crazy, Stupid, Love which features Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, Jonah Bobo John Carroll Lynch, Marisa Tomei, Kevin Bacon, Analeigh Tipton, Josh Groban, Liza Lapira, and Joey King.  The premise is Steve Carell has been living the dream life (good job, nice house, great kids) when he finds out his wife wants a divorce.  Since he’s been out of the dating scene for decades, he starts spending his time with a thirty something player (Ryan Gosling) and he becomes his wingman and protege.  As you might imagine, comedy ensues.

While many of you missed I Love You Phillip Morris, it’s a gem that deserves your time.  In addition, Ficarra and Requa wrote Bad Santa, so anyone thinking Crazy, Stupid, Love might be a cookie cutter Hollywood release, I think it’s safe to assume it won’t be.  Personally, I can’t wait to check this out.  I’d imagine a trailer will hit soon. Until then, hit the jump for the full synopsis and the image.
