Burn Your Maps Trailer: Jacob Tremblay Thinks He's a Mongolian Goat Herder

Vertical Entertainment has released a new trailer for Burn Your Maps. This little indie flick is headlined by Jacob Tremblay, who busted onto the scene thanks to his performance in the Oscar-winner Room, as well as Vera Farmiga, who has been turning in great performances for more than a decade. In this case, the two have paired up for a grounded yet warm tale, based on what we're seeing in this new trailer for the upcoming summer release.

The trailer kicks off by setting up something of a troubled relationship between a couple of parents who have something of an interesting kid, to put it mildly. This young boy believes he's a Mongolian and takes his fantasy to extreme levels. This puts a wedge between the various members of the family and the mom eventually says to hell with it and actually takes her boy to Mongolia. From there, it

Vera Farmiga & Jacob Tremblay in Trailer for Comedy 'Burn Your Maps'

"What brings you to Mongolia?" Vertical Entertainment has debuted a new trailer for an indie adventure comedy titled Burn Your Maps, from writer/director Jordan Roberts. This first premiered at film festivals back in late 2016, and has taken three years to finally get an actual Us release. No idea why, but this trailer might give you a hint that it's just not all that. Burn Your Maps is about a family in emotional turmoil that is taken by surprise when an eccentric 8-year-old American boy, Wes, has an existential epiphany - he believes that he is in fact a Mongolian goat herder. So they travel to Mongolia and things get even crazier, of course. Jacob Tremblay stars with Vera Farmiga, and a cast including Virginia Madsen, Marton Csokas, Jason Scott Lee, Suraj Sharma, Arielle Rombough, Ramon Rodriguez, and Glynis Davies. This looks cute but also awkward and just strange, not

ABC Receives Top Score For Asian American Representation On TV, Fox Fails

  • Deadline
The Asian Pacific American Media Coalition (Apamc) has released report cards to the four major TV networks in regards to Asian American and Pacific Islander (Aapi) representation for their 2017-2018 TV season. Long story short: three of them passed and one of them totally bombed.

The report cards were appropriately released on the first day of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and it is a great way to take stock of the status of Hollywood’s glacial-paced move to being more inclusive. In this case, the Apamc sheds light on the Aapi community, grading the four major TV networks on their progress toward full inclusion in scripted and unscripted programming, writers/producers, directors, development, commitment to diversity initiatives, and the new category of Diversity Department Relationship with the Coalition.

“Asian Americans have been increasingly represented in network television over the past few years, but there remain many opportunities to be seized,

Movie Review – Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

Happy Death Day 2U, 2019.

Directed by Christopher Landon.

Starring Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Phi Vu, Suraj Sharma, Sarah Yarkin, Rachel Matthews, Ruby Modine, Steve Zissis and Charles Aitken.

Synopsis:

Tree Gelbman discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.

The first instalment of Happy Death Day was a mash-up of Groundhog Day and slasher horror and it was awesome. Its sequel goes further with the genre bending and includes a sci-fi twist and a lot more comedy. This time around Tree (Rothe) winds up stuck on Monday 18th again but this time in an alternate dimension. If it sounds a bit convoluted and confusing then that’s because it is, and yet despite the myriad of plot holes and problems the sci-fi element creates, Happy Death Day 2 U is so much fun to watch.

As with the first film, Jessica Rothe is fantastic

Box Office: ‘Alita: Battle Angel,’ ‘Lego Movie 2’ to Lead President’s Day Weekend

  • Variety
Box Office: ‘Alita: Battle Angel,’ ‘Lego Movie 2’ to Lead President’s Day Weekend
Alita: Battle Angel” is holding a slim lead ahead of “Lego Movie 2’s” second frame with an estimated four-day take of $29.1 million from 3,790 North American locations.

“Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” meanwhile, is heading for about $25 million for a domestic tally of around $66 million. The two films lead the pack for a relatively sluggish President’s Day weekend, with the top 12 films totaling significantly below last year’s revenues, which were given a massive boost from the $242 million (four-day) premiere of “Black Panther.”

Robert Rodriguez’s cyberpunk action film starring Christoph Waltz and Rosa Salazar scored $7.53 million on Friday. James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis adapted the script from Yukito Kishiro’s manga series “Gunnm,” and the Fox sci-fier holds a 59% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. “Alita” marks a risk for the studio, with a costly $170 million production budget.

Film Review: Sequel Surprisingly Surpasses the First Film in ‘Happy Death Day 2U’

Chicago – At some point, we’ve all experienced deja vu. Sure, it could just be because we lead a monotonous, predictable life, but I’d personally welcome the idea of something supernatural at play over the more practical explanation. That’s exactly what “Happy Death Day” introduced, and it was a hilarious slasher take on “Groundhog Day”, and luckily the sequel, “Happy Death Day 2U”, adds to the experience.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

The first “Happy Death Day” is a hard film to forget, especially since it the main character is stuck in a repeating loop of waking up, getting murdered, and starting the day over again. This sort of time loop scenario isn’t new to us, especially with iconic films like “Groundhogs Day” and “Live. Die. Repeat.” (formerly known as “Edge of Tomorrow”). There is an inherent comedy to this scenario that is impossible to deny, which is something the film embraces fully and unabashedly.

‘Happy Death Day 2U’ Review

Stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phi Vu, Donna Duplantier, GiGi Erneta | Written and Directed by Christopher Landon

Happy Death Day‘s inspired slasher-version-of-Groundhog-Day premise proved a surprise hit for Blumhouse Productions back in October 2017, so it’s no surprise that a sequel has followed less than two years later. With the entire cast and director Christopher Landon back on board, the sequel finds increasingly clever ways to build on the first film without just resorting to more of the same (even if “more of the same” is the entire point of a time loop movie).

Initially, Happy Death Day 2U begins by focusing on a different character, namely science student Ryan (Phi Vu) – the roommate of heroine Tree’s (Jessica Rothe) now-boyfriend Carter (Israel Broussard) – who only had variations on a one-line cameo last time round. Here it’s Ryan who finds

Second Opinion – Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

Happy Death Day 2U, 2019.

Directed by Christopher Landon

Starring Jessica Rothe, Ruby Modine, Israel Broussard, Rachel Matthews, Suraj Sharma, Charles Aitken, Phi Vu, and Dean Bronson.

Synopsis:

Having survived repeatedly dying while being pursued by a masked killer, Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) discovers that this time around, she’s not the only one stuck in a murderous timeloop.

The timeloop narrative has been on repeat ever since Christopher Lloyd stuck Einstein in a Dolorean, but Hollywood has continually found ways to keep it fresh; comedy has given us Groundhog Day, the sci-fi angle was tackled by Edge of Tomorrow, and in 2017 Blumhouse Productions opened their Pandora’s box of horror to bring us hi-concept slasher Happy Death Day.

It turned out to be one of the most pleasantly surprising genre efforts of the year, largely thanks to a star-making performance from the eminently watchable Jessica Rothe, as the sorority house Phil Connors.

In time for Valentine’s Day comes Happy Death Day 2U, a sequel to the 2017 horror/comedy Happy Death Day. College student Tree (Jessica Rothe) is back for another day of repeated deaths, but this time it is someone else stuck in the loop of a repeated day. Nonetheless, it is still fierce sorority girl Tree, who went through this before, who must solve the mystery and stop the murderous loop.

Audiences don’t really have to have seen the original to follow the story in the sequel, as Happy Death Day 2U provides a quick little recap of the first film, as Tree explains the situation to the new guy caught in the death day time loop.

Review: Happy Death Day 2U Isn’t the Sequel I Was Expecting – And That’s Why It’s Awesome

  • DailyDead
As a lifelong devotee of the slasher subgenre, Christopher Landon’s Happy Death Day was one of my favorite horror films of 2017, as its infectious charms and clever approach to mixing up the formula we’ve come to expect engrained itself deeply into my genre-loving soul. When a sequel was announced, I was thrilled and excited—naturally—but part of me wondered if the follow-up would succumb to sequelitis and give us fans just more of the same, especially considering how much this concept of looping time was a part of Happy Death Day’s story. But leave it to writer/director Christopher Landon to come up with a brilliant approach to figuring out how you give fans more of what they loved about the original, but still drastically change things up with Happy Death Day 2U, making it one of the most innovative and surprising sequels to come out in years.
