"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Yes No Maybe So: Jacob Tremblay is a "Wonder"

by Nathaniel R

From a distance the forthcoming filmWonder(2017) looks likeMask(1985) for the junior high set.The film is based on the novel of the same name by RJ Palacio about Auggie,a boy who enters school after years of home schooling due to his many surgeries and complications with a rare facial deformity.Jacob Tremblay,in demand post Room,plays the main character Auggie.The film is directed by Stephen Chbosky who already has some experience with transferring YA novels to the screen since he transferred his own for his directorial debutThe Perks of Being a Wallflower(2012).Wonderis his sophomore effort though this time he left the screenwriting to another.Steven Conrad,who previously adaptedThe Pursuit of HappynessandThe Secret Life of Walter Mittyto screen,adapts.

Let's compartmentalize the first trailer with our Yes No Maybe So™ system after the jump...

2017 is full of 'Wonder'

Murtadahere.On twitter the CEO of the French distributor Mars,which usually distributes Woody Allen movies in France,announced that the title of his 2017 film isWonder Wheel.It stars Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake (playing a lifeguard,if thoseset photosare to be believed),as well as Juno Temple,Jim Belushi and Max Casella.The film was partly shot in Coney Island so we assume that the title refers to Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park.July is our annual date with Woody so expect a US release announcement soon.

If this title holds it'll mark the 4th movie scheduled for release this year that contains the word "wonder"in its title.We don't have to remind you ofour most anticipated filmof the year,Todd Haynes'Wonderstruck.There's of courseWonder Woman.

And recently it was announced that a Julia Roberts - Jacob Tremblay collaboration,simply titledWonder,is coming out at Thanksgiving.Tremblay plays a kid with facial differences who becomes a hero when he goes to school for the first time in his young life.Roberts and Owen Wilson are his parents and the director is Stephen Chbosky (Perks of Being a Wallflower).

ObviouslyWonder Womandoesn't have to worry about anyone mixing it up with the other three.But one of the others will definately blink and change its title,no?Lay down your bets on which film will it be.

On this day in showbiz history...

Still undersung: the great Glynis Johns in "The Ref"

1902Ray A Kroc,who popularized the McDonald's empire is born.The Founderwhich is about his business shenanigans/success opens this December (it was already supposed to have opened but we can't have movies for adults in the summer for some reason).
1908Joshua Logan is born.He later makes famous movies likeBus Stop,Picnic,CamelotandSouth Pacific.
1923Happy 93rd birthday to Glynis Johns,one of the greats!Her classics include:Mary Poppins,While You Were Sleeping,The Court Jester,The Ref,andMiranda.Why she doesn't have an Honorary Oscar is simply beyond our understanding.She was nominated only once for fine supporting work inThe Sundowners

Thoughts I Had...First Look at "The Book of Henry"

Chris here with a first official image.Let's try not to holdJurassic World's flatness against director Colin Trevorrow.While he may be the current whipping boy for the internet's derision at indie directors making the abrupt transition into franchise entertainments,his debutSafety Not Guaranteedhad the charms and spunk to hint at a career making heartwarming fare.And wouldn't you know,that's exactly what he's got planned for this fall'sThe Book of Henry.

The family drama opens this September curiously right after the Toronto Film Festival wraps up.Here's the first image from the film,featuring child stars Jaeden Leiberher (St Vincent) and Jacob Tremblay (Room):

Some thoughts:

  • Jaeden Leiberher is still holding on to thoseMidnight Specialgoggles?
  • Colin Trevorrow is slated to directStar Wars: Episode IX,which makes notorious uberfan Tremblay just one degree removed from the franchise.It's been said ad nauseum,but I must restate: the world is a cruel place indeed if he can't be inStar Wars.Come on,Trevorrow,be a pal!
  • Naomi Watts plays both boys' mother.Her recent track record of screen mothers has ranged from Oscar nominated (The Impossible) to shaky (Demolition) to ghastly (theDivergentseries).Where will this one land?
  • The plot promises "a boy genius".Which of these two is the brainy one?
  • For all ofJurassic World's faults,it's strongest asset was the brother relationship at its heart.Trevorrow's got two natural talents here,so maybe there could be great chemistry.

Consider me excited to give Trevorrow another shot with something on a smaller scale.What do you think of the first look atThe Book of Henry?

Oscar Luncheon

Yesterday the Academy held their annual Oscar luncheon for the nominees from 2015 cinema.Maybe we're all eager to move on to 2016 but all in good time.There's still 21 days of the 2015 film year given that it doesn't wrap up until the credits roll on Oscar night.

The luncheon is the event with the cheesy "class photo".So let's look at that and talk noteworthy moments and how we're all feeling at this pointafter the jump.
