EXCLUSIVE: Vertical Entertainment said Monday that it has acquired North American rights to Every Breath You Take , a psychological thriller directed by Vaughn Stein that stars Casey Affleck , Sam Claflin , Michelle Monaghan , Veronica Ferres and India Eisley. The pic will now get a U.S. theatrical release and Premium VOD bow on April 2. Every Breath You Take centers on a psychiatrist (Affleck) whose career is thrown into jeopardy when his patient takes her own life. When he invites his patient’s surviving brother (Claflin) into his home to meet his wife (Monaghan) and daughter (Eisley), his family life is suddenly torn apart. The deal marks a reunion of sorts for Vertical, Stein and producer Richard Barton Lewis of Southpaw Entertainment. Vertical last year acquired the Stein-directed and Lewis-produced Inheritance , the thriller that starred Lily Collins and Simon Pegg.

Standing on the side of South Sasabe Road just outside Three Points, Arizona, Alvaro Enciso and Ron Kovatch consult their handheld GPS. Displaying a two-mile radius, the screen is littered with dozens of red dots. “The dots are deaths,” Kovatch explains. It’s overcast and not yet 10 a.m., but the temperature has already climbed past 90 degrees. By the time noon rolls around and the clouds high above the desert have burned off, it’ll be 113 degrees, hot enough to burn your lungs with every breath. Enciso takes in the view and raves about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, which draws tourists from across the globe. “But this desert has a secret,” he says. “Three thousand people have died here. Two thousand have disappeared. And nobody knows about this shit.” The two men consult Enciso’s map of the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge, discussing the route for the day’s journey. The night before, Enciso plotted out three potential stops for the day, areas where activists … [Read more...] about Dying In The Desert Is Easy — These Activists Are Trying To Change That
Tens of thousands on Monday defied coronavirus restrictions, gathering worldwide on International Women's Day to denounce gender violence and inequalities. Women took to the streets in peaceful democracies and in countries gripped by conflict, though in far smaller numbers than last year, when the full force of the Covid-19 pandemic had yet to hit the world. Thousands marched in Mexico City, bringing with them photos with the names of alleged rapists, murderers and harassers of women. "Together we are the fire, burn everything," said one banner in the crowd, some of whom angrily kicked at a wooden fence around the Monument to the Revolution. "My daughter was raped. I am grateful that she is alive," 45-year-old Leticia Resendiz told AFP. Near her, a small girl carried a sign reading: "They haven't killed me, but I live in fear." Thousands of women also marched in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which has seen a wave of femicide that has claimed on average one life per day so far … [Read more...] about Thousands defy virus restrictions for Women’s Day rallies
Akron/Family are a four-man band based in Brooklyn, of assorted rural origins (in Pennsylvania, California and upstate New York) and now roaming all over a wide, open space where antique folk balladry, primal drone and explosive improvisation meet and melt in a woodland psychedelia that answers an age-old musical question: What if Pink Floyd gave birth to Ummagumma in the Band’s basement at Big Pink? There is nothing retiring about the first nine minutes of Meek Warrior — “Blessing Force” is practically an album in itself, a mounting-hysteria suite of Hawkwind-like overdrive, healing-ritual chant and free-jazz blowing. The middle of the record (Akron/Family’s third, counting their 2003 split disc with Michael Gira’s Angels of Light ) is softer communion — pagan sing-along and log-cabin jamming — that turns wild and electric again in the ecstatic, tumbling rock of “The Rider (Dolphin Song).” Joining singer-instrumentalists Ryan Vanderhoof, Seth Olinsky, Miles Seaton and Dana Janssen … [Read more...] about Fricke’s Picks: What If Pink Floyd Gave Birth to Ummagumma in the Band’s Basement?
Our columnist turns 60 on Sunday, a life that saw him feature in some great fights and witness many more. As a birthday treat, Barry has been taking a trip through the archives and has selected one great bout from each decade from the 60s to the teens that have left an indelible mark... 1. Cassius Clay vs Sonny Liston I February 1964 announced the most charismatic boxer in history. We had never seen anything like Clay before. He was not only a brilliant fighter he was brash and beautiful. I loved him. He wasn’t the greatest heavy of all time, but this fight changed the game for all time. People were stunned when Liston, a heavy favourite, refused to come out for the seventh round. The shock went around the world and a star was born. 2. Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier I The fight of the century. It was March 1971, I was ten years old and this was my introduction to boxing, the first fight I remember seeing. Clay was now Ali and was fighting for his old world title … [Read more...] about Muhammad Ali vs Joe Frazier among my six fights of the century
