Because of the international success of their previous albums, touring the globe is nothing new to the members of Maroon 5. When we spoke to lead singer Adam Levine, we learned that there’s one particular place that stands out as a sentimental favorite: Visiting Africa, he says, really made an impact on him on many different levels.

theovernight11The Overnight centers on Alex (Adam Scott) and Emily (Taylor Schilling), former Seattle residents who are trying their best to make friends in their Los Angeles neighborhood. The pair agree to pizza night with newfound acquaintance Kurt (Jason Schwartzman) and his wife Charlotte (Judith Godrèche), and what begins as a rather subdued affair develops into an evening that shakes up both of their relationships.

The movie is filled with unpredictable and uncomfortable (and most importantly) funny moments, including the reveal that Charlotte has been featured in breast-feeding videos (this is one of several interesting reveals in the narrative). Though the movie is a sex comedy, The Overnight also contains a subtle level of pathos, since behind each individual’s sexual proclivities lies an intense desire to combat a little loneliness (and relationship monotony).

On the art imitating life level, Jason Schwartzman talks about the synchronicity behind the breast-feeding element of The Overnight and a story his wife relayed to him about taking a class at The Pump Station. Co-star Judith Godréche is also heard in the clip:

To listen to Schwartzman talk about the prosthetic penis that he used for The Overnight, please go to Deepest Dream.

The Overnight is now playing.

creed-movie-images-jordan-stalloneThe Rocky franchise has been entertaining audiences since 1976, as the original won three Academy Awards, including best picture and best director (John G. Avildsen). The beloved sports franchise has also spawned six successful sequels and now another installment, Creed, has been added to the Rocky universe. Creed follows the retired Rocky Balboa as he trains Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) the son of Balboa’s former opponent and friend Apollo Creed (previously played by Carl Weathers)

The Creed trailer is simply riveting, as Adonis Johnson Creed is front and center in the story. The picture is directed by Ryan Coogler, who got the job thanks to his successful collaboration with Jordan in Fruitvale Station. Both artists bring a different angle to the Stallone dominated franchise, and it’s great to see an established actor like Stallone let someone else take over the reins (Coogler also penned Creed).

But before heading off into the future, let’s take a listen to Rocky’s past. Stallone explained to us why the initially underrated Rocky Balboa and the first film are highly beloved. (Click on the media bar below to hear Sylvester Stallone).


Creed opens in theaters November 25.

pixels1After the mixed reception of last year’s Blended and The Cobbler, Adam Sandler is aiming to get back on track with Pixels. A loving and comedic ode to video game classics of yesteryear, the storyline centers on Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), a professional gamer enlisted by his best buddy (and U.S. President!) Will Cooper (Kevin James) to stop an attack by aliens that have embodied the larger than life forms of Space Invaders, Centipede, Donkey Kong, and Pac-Man. Along with a team of retro gamers (which include Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad), Sam must save the world from this absolutely bizarre and ultimately intimidating invasion.

Click on the video below to see Sandler,who also produced the film, talk about how most of the iconic video games are featured in the movie.

Pixels hits theaters July 25.

thesaltoftheearth11

Directed by Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, the Oscar nominated documentary The Salt of the Earth hits Blu-ray Combo Pack and Digital HD July 14 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The project centers on the life of photographer Sebastião Salgado, a Brazilian photo journalist who has traveled the world to explore various cross sections of humanity (co-director Juliano is Sebastião’s son).

“For a long time, I thought (we) were making a movie about a photographer,” says Wenders, whose previous credits include the documentaries Piña and Buena Vista Social Club. “And only slowly it dawned on me, at least, that this was a bigger thing and that we were touching on something that surpassed a film about a photographer and that his life was about so much more.”

Special features on the Blu-ray include over 35 minutes of deleted scenes, commentary with Wim Wenders and Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, and the featurette Looking Back - Wim and Juliano Refect on the Making of Their Film.

In the video below, Wenders elaborates on how the structure of The Salt of the Earth changed the deeper he and Salgado went into the photographer’s life (it took them one and a half years to finish the project):

The 2009 Argentine feature El Secreto De Sus Ojos won the Best Foreign Film Oscar, and now it’s been remade, American style, with Secret In Their Eyes. The original film, which centers on a recent retiree who investigates an unsolved murder investigation that altered his life 25 years ago, is a twist-filled thriller that’s also tinged with an air of romantic nostalgia.

The melancholic wistfulness of El Secreto De Sus Ojos would have been hard to capture, and instead director Billy Ray (Breach, Shattered Glass) infuses Secret In Their Eyes as an adrenaline fueled, gut-ripping revenge tale.

The narrative centers on FBI investigators Ray and Jess (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts) and their District Attorney supervisor Claire (Nicole Kidman) who fail to catch the killer of Jess’s teenage daughter. Thirteen years later, Ray is still obsessively attempting to find the culprit, and when certain clues lead him to the murderer’s trail, an absolute shocking discovery leads to unexpected repercussions.

The trailer is solid to the core, and though a bit more scenes involving Nicole Kidman would have been welcome, it’s plain to see that the film should be a showcase and possible Oscar nomination for Roberts. A brilliantly shot, action-packed stadium sequence from El Secreto De Sus Ojos was one of that film’s standout moments, and it’s great to see that sequence survive in the remake.

Is Secret In Their Eyes a movie that’s on your must-see list for 2015? Feel free to comment below!

Secret In Their Eyes opens October 23.

Chicago Fire Stars Jesse Spencer and Monica Raymund told us while they have a former Chicago Fire Chief as an adviser, balancing the realities of firefighting while giving people an engaging storyline is a challenge.
