Review: Life

PLOT: The crew of a space station is faced with an extra-terrestrial threat when they collect a soil sample from Mars containing a rapidly evolving organism hellbent on survival. REVIEW: If nothing else, LIFE makes one appreciate how good a film the original ALIEN is, as this essentially lifts its blueprint wholesale, but can’t even deliver a single moment of sustained...

The death toll rises in the red-band trailer for Life

LIFE follows six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life. As it happens, it does! Then the creature seems to grow exponentially and go on a murderous rampage. Bogus! This red-band trailer provides a few cringe-worthy moments in terms of scares, but also gives you a pretty good idea of how's going to...

Extended clip unleashed for sci-fi thriller Life starring Ryan Reynolds

LIFE is thankfully not an adaptation of the shitty board game with the same name, nor a remake of the Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence prison dramedy. Instead, it's a sci-fi thriller about a microorganism from Mars that kills people one-by-one. Hmmm...kind of a step down from a Xenomorph, don't you think? Anyway it stars Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal and is coming...

Behind-the-scenes featurette released for sci-fi thriller Life

LIFE - about overly-pretty astronauts finding an alien life form that wants to kill them - seems to be the plot synopsis of a direct-to-VHS film starring Casper Van Dien and Michael Dudikoff that'd collect dust on the wall of a Blockbuster, right? Am I crazy? But that's the beauty of the film, I think. It has a goofy and cliche sci-fi/horror plot, but has...

2017 Sony Preview

Sony still seems to be reeling from the aftershocks of their email scandal a couple of years ago. With the prospect of losing the James Bond franchise to another studio and only two films that crossed the $100 million mark at the box office this year, including the controversial GHOSTBUSTERS and the critically maligned THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE, Sony is hoping that 2017 will be a chance for them...

Jake Gyllenhaal & Ryan Reynolds are serious in space in Life poster

LIFE starring Jake Gyllenhaal , Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson is one of those movies where I have no idea how it’s gonna play out. We can either expect a middle-of-the-road sci-fi/action flick that will barely register, or a complex thriller set in space that will recall classics like ALIEN.  With that in mind the first poster for the movie has dropped, along with...

Jake Gyllenhaal to join Ryan Reynolds & Rebecca Ferguson in Life

Daniel Espinosa 's upcoming film LIFE combines an interesting sounding sci-fi premise with a fun and talented cast, but that cast has undergone a bit of a shakeup. LIFE was set to star Rebecca Ferguson (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION) and Ryan Reynolds (DEADPOOL), but unfortunately scheduling conflicts with Reynolds' upcoming HITMAN'S BODYGUARD led to the actor...

Ryan Reynolds to head into space with Rebecca Ferguson for Life

In my mind, Ryan Reynolds is a much bigger star than he really is, so it's been incredibly gratifying to witness DEADPOOL's enormous success, especially as the film as long been a passion project for Reynolds. DEADPOOL will hopefully send the actor's star rising a little higher and his next project will see him reunite with DEADPOOL screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett...

Kim Basinger joins Fifty Shades Darker; Rebecca Ferguson to star in Life

It will be interesting to see how the sequel to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY performs once it's released, the first film premiered less than a year ago and was a huge box-office success but the heat around the franchise seems to have cooled considerably in the interim. FIFTY SHADES DARKER and FIFTY SHADES FREED will be filmed back-to-back under director James Foley using scripts by Niall...

First Look: Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in Anton Corbijn's Life

I am quite thankful to Anton Corbijn who made countless amazing music videos. Honestly, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. He’s collaborated with everyone from Depeche Mode to Nirvana to Johnny Cash. The man has a spectacular vision. I was elated to hear that he broke out into the film world back in 2007 with CONTROL, the story of Ian Curtis and Joy Division. A great film if you’ve...
