FIRST MAN

First Man
Director: Damien Chazelle
Writers: Josh Singer
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Ciarán Hinds, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit, Lukas Haas
Studio: Universal Studios
Rated PG-13 | 141 Minutes
Release Date: October 12, 2018

First Man covers man’s epic journey to the moon at the peak of the space race of the 1960s. It’s a bit of a step away for Damien Chazelle, who is better known for music-based films like Whiplash and La La Land, but one that plays to his strengths. A film about characters making great sacrifices.

Not only that, but it also succeeds on a technical level. Close-up shots and the shaky cam brings audiences closer to the story and allows them to see physical and emotional toll these NASA missions have on the crew. Additionally, the cinematography, especially in the IMAX sequences, displays the grandeur of the collective effort to not only get man on the moon but also its successful landing. The problem is, the film suffers from a by-the-numbers story that does very little to engage with its audience. Check out my full review of the film below.

Neil Armstrong

Damien Chazelle‘s La La Land has captivated audiences with its elegant and sunny musical numbers and gorgeous shots of Los Angeles. But now he can look forward to work on a surprising new project that will have him reunite with one of his La La Land stars, which will require far less singing and jazz piano playing.

A new report says Chazelle and Ryan Gosling are set to reunite for an adaptation of James Hansen‘s The First Man: A Life of Neil A. Armstrong, a biopic about astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man who set foot on the moon. More on the story below.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Recently it was reported that because Summit Entertainment had not decided earlier that their final movie in the Twilight franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, would be split into two movies and because their actors had become stars, talents like Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz were holding out in hopes of pulling in a much bigger payday (Read: Will ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn’ Re-Cast Cullen Kids Ashley Greene & Kellan Lutz?). It was also for this reason that the assumed-two-part film had not been made “official” yet, even though there was little doubt that all cast members would eventually rejoin the three main stars.

In a press release put out by Summit, the studio announced the return of the entire Cullen family, including Greene, Lutz, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, and Elizabeth Reaser. The release pointed out that the actors have joined Billy Burke, who plays Charlie Swan. Three new posters were also released for the next film in the series, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, one of which can seen to the right.

‘The Twilight Saga’ Star Taylor Lautner May Also Star In A ‘Vision Quest’ Remake

Vision Quest

Not too long ago it was reported that Taylor Lautner, star of Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, had been cast as the lead in Paramount’s planned teen action flick Max Steel (Read: Resident ‘Twilight’ Wolf Pup Taylor Lautner To Become ‘Max Steel’). It appears now that the 17-year-old actor didn’t stop there: E! Online is reporting that Lautner is now also in some talks to take on the lead in a remake of 1985’s Vision Quest.

The original Vision Quest told the story of a mediocre high school wrestler (played by Matthew Modine) who decides that he needs to do something that people will remember, which turns out to be beating the undefeated best wrestler in the entire state. The goal is a seemingly impossible one, and is even hard due to his need to drop down two weight classes to pull it off. Things also get a little complicated on this quest of his, when his parents take in a much more mature 21-year-old drifter (Linda Fiorentino), who he falls in love with.

Gears of War

We haven’t heard too much about the progress of turning the ultra-popular video game Gears of War into a major motion picture since hearing that Len Wiseman would be the man directing the project. Recently, Making Of had the chance to have a little chat with producer Wyck Godfrey, who was able to share a tiny little bit of information on where the film may be heading, including a decision which could make or break the project before it even begins.

Godfrey explained that they were working with Wiseman and that they had spoken with the gentlemen over at Epic Games who developed the series. It would appear that their big hurdle right now is whether they should jump right into the madness that we saw in the games, or if it would be better for them to do something of an origins story and show what things were like before the war with the Locust began.
