Life Itself

Last night, everyone shed more than a few tears at the season finale of Dan Fogelman‘s This is Us. But Fogelman is much more than a showrunner. He’s also a filmmaker, and now he will bring us to tears once more in Life Itself.

Not to be confused with the Roger Ebert documentary of the same name, Life Itself is a multi-generational film that tells the story of how love and one shared event can connect us all. It stars Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Mandy Patinkin, Laia Costa, Annette Bening, and Antonio Banderas. Amazon Studios ha released a teaser trailer for the film, which you can find below.

Garrett Hedlund in Tron Legacy

Tron 3 (rumored to be titled Tron: Ascension) was so close to production that stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde were expected to report on set in Vancouver in the Fall. However, with the disappointing box office performance of Tomorrowland, Disney decided to shut down the Tron sequel before it even entered production. Fans refused to believe that Tron 3 would never happen, and even started a petition to get it back into production.

Disney didn’t even mention at the D23 Expo earlier this year if they were still considering releasing Tron 3, but for those who are still holding out on hope of it getting made, Hedlund has an optimistic outlook. According to what was told to him, the project isn’t dead, but rather Disney is still trying to find the right story. More on this below.

Tron: Legacy

Recently, Disney had to announce that they weren’t moving forward with Tron 3 (better known by its working title, Tron: Ascension). The studio didn’t give any specific details as to why they decided to pull the plug, but despite numerous reports that the cast and crew were due to report on the Vancouver set this fall, they never actually greenlit the film. So now that Disney halted production on the film, loyal fans of the cult film have stepped up asking the studio to reconsider the decision and start preproduction on the sequel again.

More on this story below.

Tron: Legacy

In the past few weeks there have been talks of Tron 3 shooting in Vancouver this fall. The tentatively titled Tron: Ascension will bring back Joseph Kosinski as director. While reports suggested that Garrett Hedlund would be returning to reprise his role as Sam Flynn, it was unclear if Olivia Wilde would be returning. At the end of Tron: Legacy, it was revealed that her character, Quorra, had made it out of The Grid, and transferred herself into the real world.

Now a new report says that she is signed on to appear, and also confirms that Hedlund is on board for the sequel as well. While some may have doubted the sequel even happening, it appears that Tron 3 is on, though we have yet to hear of a confirmation from the Disney themselves. Hit the jump for more.

Tron Legacy

Tron is just that one film franchise that somehow finds a way to make use of its extra lives. Fans were excited to hear that a sequel, Tron: Legacy, would be coming, but it was met with mixed reviews and it barely met box office expectations. With the way the film ended there was hope that a Tron 3 would soon follow.

Since it’s 2010 release, talks of a sequel grew quieter with each passing year. Now a new report says not only is Tron 3 still alive, but it will shoot in Vancouver this fall. Hit the jump for more.

Movie Review: Rush

Movie Review: Rush Poster

Rush
Director: Ron Howard
Screenwriter: Peter Morgan
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Pierfrancesco Favino
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 122 Minutes
Release Date: September 27, 2013

Academy Award winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon) reunites with writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a film about the ’70s rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Rush stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor, The Avengers) as English playboy James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as Niki Lauda, a methodical Austrian racing driver and brilliant mechanic.

Ron Howard has made some great films: Apollo 13, Willow, A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon, and, of course, 1982’s Night Shift. He’s made a lot of disappointing, forgettable films too: The Dilemma, Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Edtv – just to name a few. Rush is somewhere in-between, a gorgeous looking film by cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (Dredd, Slumdog Millionaire) with two fantastic performances, but a script that is labored, cliché, and – dare I say it – slightly misogynistic.
