Movie Review: A Cure For Wellness

A Cure For Wellness
Director: Gore Verbinski
Screenwriter: Justin Haythe
Cast: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated R | 146 Minutes
Release Date: February 17, 2017

In Richard Fleischer’s 1973 dystopian sci-fi film Soylent Green, Charlton Heston plays an NYPD detective investigating the murder of a wealthy CEO. The investigation leads him to uncover the truth about Soylent Green, a food ration advertised to contain “high-energy plankton.” It turns out the miracle product is made of people. Human corpses are delivered to a disposal center where they are processed and converted into the very thing that keeps us alive.

If the big question behind Fleischer’s film is “What are we really eating?” then A Cure For Wellness asks, “What are we really taking?” From Gore Verbinski (The Ring, the Pirates of the Caribbean series), A Cure For Wellness is a mind-bending psychological thriller with exquisite but unsettling imagery.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Summer movie season is of course filled with blockbuster tentpoles, but there are a few other films to look forward to, especially if you are looking for an escape. But if you don’t want to see those superhero films, then Luc Besson‘s (Léon: The Professional, The Fifth Element) Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets might be just your thing.

Based on the french comic written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières, the film stars Dane DeHaan as Valerian and Cara Delevingne as Laureline, as they travel through the outskirts of space for an adventure unlike any other.

The Digital Wire Blu-ray/DVD Release News: Murder, Morbidity, Maturation, Mischief
BAADASSSSS!   |  

boyhood still ifc films sxsw

Another week, another edition of The Digital Wire here at Geeks of Doom. Try not to look so enthusiastic. Major Blu-ray/DVD release announcements were scant this week, but news of some interesting titles soon to make their way to multiple home viewing platforms wasn’t, so I’ve compiled the best of the odds ‘n’ ends. We’ve got undead girlfriends, some Southern-fried slaughter, mismatched cops tearing up the Windy City, salacious studio hilarity, and one of the best-reviewed motion pictures of 2014. So I guess that last one is a pretty major announcement. My bad.

Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power.

Sony Sets Release Dates For ‘Sinister Six,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ ‘Uncharted’
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Sinister Six

A year ago Sony Pictures Entertainment had such high hopes for their rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was moving forth without a hitch and early footage from the blockbuster sequel screened at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con to an enthusiastic response. Back in December the studio was so certain that it was going to be the biggest movie of this summer, if not 2014, that they announced plans to exploit their ownership of the movie rights to the Spider-Man universe by developing spinoffs that would star Spidey villains Venom and the Sinister Six.

The plan originally was for Amazing Spider-Man 2 screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner to collaborate on the Venom feature, while Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard would write and eventually be called upon to direct the Sinister Six movie. Then Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened to withering reviews from critics and less box office than the studio had initially projected. I haven’t seen the second movie in the rebooted series yet but the consensus is that the gluttony of villains, lack of attention paid to the main characters, and an anti-climatic ending that was to have paved the way for the spinoffs are what hurt its chances at the box office. A $706 million worldwide haul is hardly anything to sniff, but Sony was hoping that Amazing Spider-Man 2 would top out at a solid billion and change at the very least.

A trailer has been released for an upcoming indie zom-com titled Life After Beth.

The movie stars Aubrey Plaza as Beth and Dane DeHaan as Zach, a couple torn apart when she dies unexpectedly. But when she comes back to life as a zombie it’s a chance for their relationship to resume. Unlike your usual zombie, she doesn’t start as a relentless flesh-eating monster; at first, she’s her normal old self. But as time goes on and she begins transitioning into a walking corpse with an insatiable hunger for humans, things get a little complicated for Zach.

You can check out the first trailer for Life After Beth below.

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Director: Marc Webb
Screenwriter(s): Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field
Columbia Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 142 Minutes
Release Date: May 2, 2014

“His greatest battle begins…”

When Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created Spider-Man in 1962, they introduced something new to the world of comics: the flawed superhero with everyday problems. The insecurities and anxieties of nerdy high school student Peter Parker changed the public’s perception of comic book superheroes – it made them relatable.

When Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man swung onto screens in 2002, it was a massive success and a cultural phenomenon. For its time, Spider-Man was the only film to reach $100 million in its first weekend, had the largest opening weekend gross of all time, and was the most successful film based on a comic book. It was the The New Millennium’s equivalent to Richard Donner’s Superman or Tim Burton’s Batman.

In 2004, Spider-Man 2 grossed $783 million worldwide and received universal acclaim from critics. A decade later, Raimi’s follow-up is still considered one of the best superhero films ever made. 2007’s Spider-Man 3, however, completely ruined Marvel’s most popular (and profitable) superhero series beyond repair. For Sony, the only way to move forward with the Spider-Man franchise was to reboot it.

The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series showed us that there was a connection between the Vulture’s Tech Flight Suit and Goblin’s Glider. In the past few trailers we’ve seen for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we see the mysterious man walk by two high-tech supersuits that resemble Doctor Octopus’ arms and Vulture’s wings.

Now newly released images show how closely related the two are because the resemblance is uncanny. Hit the jump to check out the new images of Dane DeHaan as Green Goblin/Harry Osborn, Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) holding on to some web for dear life, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) embracing Gwen Stacy, The Rhino (Paul Giamatti) preparing for battle, and much more.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Final Trailer Wants To Catch A Spider

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer Header Image

With the massive marketing that is going into The Amazing Spider-Man 2, one has to ask: is there anything left to see in the theater? The trailers, the clips, the Super Bowl spots, the TV spots, not to mention the viral marketing, makes it feel as though Sony has burned through everything stopping short of showing the entire film.

The third and supposedly final trailer lays down the gauntlet by revealing the three villains that will appear in the film. But before you think being inundated with three villains is going to be Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 all over again, director Marc Webb has said that Rhino (Paul Giamatti) will appear in the film for only a few minutes, and that Max Dillion aka Electro (Jamie Foxx) will be the main villain. The trailer actually does a great job of digging deeper into Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and Harry Osborn’s (Dane DeHaan) complex friendship.

Hit the jump to watch the final trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
