Opening in theaters on August 29th is the new horror adventure thriller As Above, So Below from sibling filmmakers John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle

The movie is based on a script written by both brothers, while John Erick Dowdle directed, and Drew Dowdle produced the project. Their previous films include Quarantine, as well as Devil, which John directed and Drew executive produced. They are currently in post-production on their next film The Coup, which stars Pierce Brosnan (The November Man), Owen Wilson (Free Birds), and Lake Bell (Million Dollar Arm), and is scheduled for release on March 6th, 2015. 

As Above, So Below, which was produced by Legendary Pictures, follows a team of explorers led by archaeologist Scarlet Marlowe (Perdita Weeks). Their adventure leads them into the catacombs beneath the streets of Paris. They soon uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. In addition to Weeks, the film also features Ben Feldman (Cloverfield), Edwin Hodge (The Purge: Anarchy), and Francois Civil (Frank). 

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with director/co-writer John Erick Dowdle, as well as his brother co-writer/producer Drew Dowdle about As Above, So Below. The sibling filmmakers discussed their new movie, coming up with the concept, how Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull helped them combine one of their older character ideas with setting the story in the catacombs, their writing process together, how much time they had to actually write the script before they began production, casting Scarlet Marlowe, the challenges of making a found footage film, and how they share filmmaking duties while on set. 

A star is born … and his name is Luke Bracey!

You may not know the actor by name right now, but you soon will as he has several high profile projects that will be released over the next year. On October 17th, Bracey (who up to this point is best known for playing Cobra Commander in G.I. Joe: Retaliation) will be seen in the romantic drama The Best of Me, based on a book by Nicolas Sparks. But the actor’s most anticipated upcoming film is Point Break where he will play the iconic role of Johnny Utah, which was portrayed by Keanu Reeves in the original. Bracey is currently shooting the remake now, which also stars Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Eviliam), Ray Winstone (The Sweeney), and Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), and is scheduled for release on July 31st, 2015. But first, Bracey can be seen going up against former James Bond Pierce Brosnan (The Love Punch) in the new spy thriller The November Man, which was directed by Roger Donaldson (No Way Out) and opens in theaters on August 27th. 

The November Man is based on the novel There Are No More Spies by author Bill Granger. The movie follows ex-CIA operative Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) as he is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil, Mason (Bracey), in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect. In addition to Brosnan and Bracey, the film also stars former Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), and Bill Smitrovich (Iron Man). 

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Luke Bracey about his work on The November Man, as well as Point Break. The talented young actor discussed his latest film, working with director Roger Donaldson, shooting guns at James Bond, what he learned from working with Pierce Brosnan, the father/son relationship between Peter and Mason, Point Break, status on filming, how his Johnny Utah will be different than the one Keanu Reeves played, and acting opposite Edgar Ramirez and Ray Winstone

George Takei is not just a legendary actor but also an American icon and a national treasure. Oh, my!!!

Takei has appeared in such films as The Green Berets with John Wayne, Larry Crowne with Tom Hanks, and the animated films Mulan, and Free Birds, as well as popular TV series like Will & Grace, Heroes, The Big Bang Theory, and Hawaii Five-0. But it was his role as Hikaru Sulu on the original Star Trek series and in the first six Star Trek films, including Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, that made Takei a household name. However, a whole new generation knows him as the official announcer for The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM Radio. 

A survivor of the Japanese American Interment Camps of the ‘1940s, Takei came out of the closet in 2005 and became an activist for LGBT rights, eventually marring his longtime partner Brad Altman in 2008. The actor now has over 7 million Facebook fans and his popularity just seems to be growing. A new documentary entitled To Be Takei highlights the incredible acting and activist career that Takei has achieved. The film opens in theaters, VOD and iTunes on August 22nd, and was directed by Jennifer M. Kroot (It Came from Kuchar). 

I recently had the pleasure of speaking with director Jennifer M. Kroot about her work on To Be Takei. The accomplished filmmaker discussed her new documentary, the incredible life of George Takei, his experience growing up in the Japanese American Interment Camps, why it took him so long to announce that he was a gay man, interviewing his Star Trek co-stars, the tension between Takei and William Shatner, how The Howard Stern Show reignited his career, and his cultural impact on society. 

Opening in theaters on August 22nd is the new sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is based on the popular graphic novel by comic book legend Frank Miller.

The movie features an all-star cast that includes Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2), Jessica Alba (Escape from Planet Earth), Josh Brolin (Oldboy), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Looper), Rosario Dawson (Gimme Shelter), Bruce Willis (A Good Day to Die Hard), Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire), Ray Liotta (The Iceman), Powers Boothe (Red Dawn), Dennis Haysbert (Heat), Christopher Meloni (Small Time), Jeremy Piven (I Melt with You), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Jamie King (The Spirit), Juno Temple (Afternoon Delight), Stacy Keach (Nebraska), Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), and Lady Gaga (Machete Kills).
