The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
David Loughery, writer of Lakeview Terrace and Obsessed has written a new thriller--one about a woman suffering from a traumatic incident who finds the house she has shut herself in invaded by a thief. Lakeview Terrace and Obsessed were certainly flawed movies, but I liked that they focused on some issues rarely explored by movies. So, this already would have made me excited. But now it has been announced that Michelle Monaghan and Michael Keaton are going to be in it. I am not very familiar with Monaghan's work (I remember her from Source Code, though she is probably better known for Eagle Eye), though I have no fear about her acting, but I am very interested to see Keaton get another juicy role. He is a very talented actor who has not had nearly enough good roles. The movie is called Penthouse North. It doesn't have a release date yet, but I am excited to see it anyway.
