Day of the Mother: Stone’s Flighty Revenge Thriller Favors Laughs

There’s a certain degree of entertainment to be gleaned from director Charles Stone III’s latest feature, Lila & Eve, from first time screenwriter Pat Gilfallan, though unfortunately in the form of unintentional comedy. Derided as a camp after its late premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, it’s Stone’s first directorial feature in over a decade (he’s been working in television since the 2004 Bernie Mac headlined Mr 3000, including the widely discussed TLC Lifetime film CrazySexyCool), and most likely won’t garner much favorable attention. Bearing the familiar turns we’ve become accustomed to in the limited subgenre of female driven revenge films, Gilfallan peppers his scenario with bits of illogical instances and eventually neuters the shock value of his big twist well before the third act begins.

Taylor Lautner Takes A Trip To Cancun

On the snowy winter days, it's only natural to get a little wistful about summer holidays - and it seems that Taylor Lautner is doing the same as he has just signed on to star in action flick Cancun for Summit, which will see him head off to Mexico for some holiday hostage drama.

The film, penned by Mr 3000's Eric Champnella along with Grant Thompson and will be produced by Lautner under his new film company which he has set up with his dad.

The script follows a young college couple taking a break with friends in the popular holiday resort who become embroiled in the workings of a drug cartel - leaving Lautner's character to save the gang of girls, using his martial art skills to do so.
