Christopher Shinn to Direct ‘Dying City’

Playwright and director Christopher Shinn will direct the upcoming revival of his play Dying City at Second Stage this spring. Shinn directed his own work in the past (including 2004’s Where Do We Live), replaces Lila Neugebauer (Waverly Gallery, Mary Page Marlowe)who was previously announced as the show’s director.

2ST’s Dying City will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Colin Woodell. Performances will begin May 14 ahead of a June 3 opening in the Tony Kiser Theater.

Set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, Dying City explores the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and 9/11. The play, a 2008 Pulitzer Prize finalist that was first seen at London’s Royal Court in 2006, is the story of a young widow who receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband.

You can buy tickets here on the 2ST website or find discounts for tickets HERE. You can also purchase tickets in person at the Tony Kiser Theater located at 305 West 43rd Street New York, NY 10036.

‘The Parts You Lose’ to Be Released This Summer

In some very exciting news, it has been announced that Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired domestic distribution rights to The Parts You Lose, the Christopher Cantwell thriller starring Aaron Paul, Scoot McNairy, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Danny Murphy. A late summer theatrical release is planned for the movie, which is having its world premiere tonight at the Sun Valley Film Festival.

In the film, Aaron plays a fugitive criminal who forms an unlikely bond with Wesley, a deaf child (Murphy). When authorities close in on the farm he’s chosen to hide out in, Wesley has to decide whom to trust. Mary will play Danny Murphy’s character’s mother, Gayle.

Glad we finally got some news about this film! Hopefully a trailer isn’t too far away now! I will let you all know about a theatrical release once more info is available!

New ‘Love, Death and Robots’ Trailer

With two weeks to go until the premiere of Netflix’s animated anthology series ‘Love, Death & Robots’, the network has released a brand new NSFW trailer which you can view below. Yesterday, I also posted a clip of Mary in one of the upcoming episodes which you can view here. I also added screencaps of Mary from the trailer below which you can see in the gallery.

 

Premiering on March 15, the show comes from Tim Miller and David Fincher and will touch on a variety of topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature, whittled down from hundreds of authors and stories, many of which were discovered by Miller decades ago. Each 5 to 15-minute-long segment was created by different teams of filmmakers from around the world, including animators from Hungary, France, Canada, and Korea among others.

First Look At Mary in ‘Love, Death and Robots’

Nextflix has been counting down the days until the premiere of the upcoming sci-fi adult animated anthology series Love, Death & Robots and in doing so, have been releasing small clips from each of the episodes that’ll soon be streaming beginning on March 15. Earlier this week, they released a short snippet of Mary that featured Topher Grace as her co-star in the scene.

If you recall, the two worked together in the 2012 social experiment ‘The Beauty Inside’. I’ve posted the clip of Mary’s Love, Death & Robots clip below and if you missed the trailer for the upcoming series, you can see it here. Just remember, it is NSFW.

The full roster of shorts will cover a variety of adult topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature. The anthology collection spans the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres and each short has a unique animation style: from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI.
