One night, Megan meets Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz), a teenager who lives with her dad (Sam Rockwell) a divorce lawyer, and the two develop a friendship. When Anthony proposes to Megan, she needs a week to think it over, and moves in with Megan and her father. Laggies screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

23 Blast—A talented young football player makes an unlikely comeback after losing his sight in this inspirational sports drama based on the true story of Travis Freeman.

Then, just when it starts to look like nothing can stop him, Travis suddenly falls ill with a virus that destroys his optic nerve overnight. But while Travis may be blind he certainly isn't alone, and with help from his parents, his unbending physical therapist, his coach, and Jerry, the talented young athlete is soon back on the gridiron and preparing to compete in the state playoffs. Now if Travis can just remain focused on the game rather than getting distracted by temptation, perhaps he will prove to himself and those who inspire him that it pays to hold onto your dreams even in the face of certain defeat. Alexa Vega, Stephen Lang, and Timothy Busfield star in the feature directorial debut of actor Dylan Baker (who also co-stars as Travis' father).

HBO to offer stand-alone streaming service

Source: Entertainment Weekly

HBO is finally cutting the cord: The premium cable network announced Wednesday it plans to offer an online-only streaming service starting next year.

The big move puts HBO on track to more directly compete with Netflix and will give viewers a method of accessing all current HBO programming without a cable subscription.

HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler made the announcement while addressing an investor meeting for parent company Time Warner. The executive first presented HBO's domestic returns, then noted there are 10 million broadband-only homes—a number that's expected to increase.
"That is a large and growing opportunity that should no longer be left untapped," Plepler said. "It is time to remove all barriers to those who want HBO. So, in 2015, we will launch a stand-alone, over-the-top, HBO service in the United States. We will work with our current partners. And, we will explore models with new partners. All in, there are 80 million homes that do not have HBO and we will use all means at our disposal to go after them."

Plepler ran down three potential distribution models for the streaming service. The first is to sell the online-only service through HBO's existing cable providers (for example, if you have broadband service through Time Warner or Comcast and want the network's streaming service, you would be able to purchase the online service without having any cable channels). The second is to distribute the service via new partners like Amazon, Google or Microsoft. The third method would be to attempt the Netflix model, whereby HBO markets its streaming service direct to consumers and skips the middlemen.

Cord-cutting HBO fans have increasingly clamored for the service to be made available without a traditional cable subscription. The network's most popular program in its history, Game of Thrones, has been ranked the most pirated TV show in the world and one common refrain among illegal downloaders is that there is no way to legally obtain the series in a timely manner without opting into an expensive cable TV package.

While out promoting his new movie "Fury," he addresses some of his most recent run-ins with the law. And much to my surprise, he's actually kind of funny.

Adam Sandler to star in four movies exclusively for Netflix

Source: Entertainment Weekly

Netflix is quickly changing the landscape of the studio system.

The streaming site announced Thursday that it has closed a deal with Adam Sandler and his production company, Happy Madison. Four new movies starring Sandler will premiere exclusively in 50 Netflix territories. Notably, there will be no studio middleman facilitating the deal, and the films will bypass a theatrical run.
"When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only? Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks?" said Sandler, in a statement. "Let the streaming begin!""

According to Netflix, this deal capitalizes on Sandler's comedic brand and box office draw; Sandler is also one of the top-ranked actors in terms of most viewed movies globally across the Netflix platform. This arrangement comes at a time when films are increasingly moving toward the video-on-demand circuit, as Netflix also announced last week that it will partner with the Weinstein Company to release Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend simultaneously with select IMAX theaters in Aug. 2015.

"People love Adam's films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages – everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line– not just in the US but all over the world." Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.
