See Chris Evans in his directorial debut

Before-We-Go.jpg

Earlier this year, while promoting the second Captain America film, Chris Evans hinted that people shouldn’t expect to see him in superhero movies much longer. In fact, his real ambition was to direct, and he wasn’t speaking hypothetically. Once titled 1:30 Train and now titled Before We Go, his directorial debut was recently announced as one of the films that will premiere at this September’s Toronto Film Festival. According to the festival’s official release, “the story follows two strangers after their serendipitous meeting in Grand Central [Station in Manhattan]. Over the course of one night, they form an unlikely bond and the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for exploration into each other and themselves.”

At quick glance, it sounds like Before Sunrise, which is not the worst place to start. Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) plays the pretty stranger, who misses her train home, and Evans portrays a musician in the right place at the right time. In 10 years, perhaps they can reunite in Paris.

A desperate parent. A bag full of cash. And Heisenberg himself.

That’s the broad-stroked description of Cold Comes the Night, which features Bryan Cranston as a half-blind, Russian-accented criminal who is the one who knocks on Alice Eve’s run-down motel to demand his missing stash of cash. Cranston’s ruthless crook doesn’t flinch from threatening to put a bullet in the ear of a child, a trait that should warm the heart of Breaking Bad fans still suffering Walter White withdrawal. In an exclusive clip below, Cranston tricks Eve’s beleaguered motel clerk by exaggerating his disability. READ FULL STORY

'Some Velvet Morning': Neil LaBute on twists, that ending, and Stanley Tucci as a bad guy

Neil LaBute’s latest film, Some Velvet Morning, is a wild and sometimes shocking ride, starring Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness), both in roles that twist and turn their way through the relationship drama. In the film, which was written and directed by LaBute, Tucci plays a man who drops in unexpectedly on his former lover (Eve) after leaving his wife. The two are well-matched as they repartee their way through a gorgeous Park Slope brownstone, with a George and Martha from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf-type fierceness, minus the alcoholism. But as in much of LaBute’s work — Fat Pig, The Shape of Things — things are not always what they seem.

Just call him Heisenbergayev.

In Cold Comes the Night — previously known as Eye of Winter — a down-on-her-luck single mom (Alice Eve) finds herself entangled with a stone-cold Russian gangster who’s going blind (Bryan Cranston). He’s looking for a big bundle of cash — and if Eve doesn’t help him find it, the ruskie promises to “put bullet” in her little girl’s ear.
