Passionate about movies, sports and writing, Ryan hails from Bend but lives in Springfield now. He earned his college degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and hopes to one day write a novel. He also enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach.
The first trailer for Ex Machina has been released. The film follows a billionaire programmer (Oscar Isaac) who invites a young employee (Domhnall Gleeson) to his remote estate to be the human component in a test to evaluate his new artificial intelligence robot. This looks like a strong directorial debut for Alex Garland who previously wrote 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Never Let Me Go. Ex Machina opens April 10, 2015.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Final Trailer
The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has been released. All hell breaks loose as this trailer showcases. Katniss is done playing games and is prepared for all out war in District 13 following the destruction of her home, District 12. Jennifer Lawrence is what makes these films surprisingly great and with even more on her shoulders, she becomes that much more compelling. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 opens on November 21.
The Better Angels Trailer
The first trailer for The Better Angels has been released. The black-and-white film chronicles the early life of Abraham Lincoln living on a farm with his family. The trailer looks like a Terrence Malick film and he indeed produced it with his longtime editor and second-unit director A.J. Edwards directing. I love black-and-white and this looks like it will have Malick's amazing visual style mixed with lyrical and poetic drama. The Better Angels opens in limited release on November 7.
