COLLIDER – First of all, I just want to note that in the press release for Netflix’s new movie Irreplaceable You, the tagline is: “Fall in love with childhood sweethearts Abbie and Sam, just in time to watch them try to say goodbye.” Ice cold! But yeah, that should set up your expectations for the movie, which stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones) as Abbie and Sam, just as Abbie receives a devastating diagnosis that changes the course of their future together.
Because Abbie is concerned that Sam won’t be able to fend for himself in this wide world as a 30-something male, she goes to elaborate lengths to set him up with a new girlfriend. Seems unlikely, but stick with me here — the lesson is to not focus on the what-ifs of the future, but to live in the now. Gasp!
Anyway, what I’m saying is: get ready to cry. Irreplaceable You premieres Friday, February 16th on Netflix, and also stars Steve Coogan, Kate McKinnon, and Christopher Walken. The movie is also the feature directorial debut of former Veep producer and director Stephanie Laing. Check out the trailer below:
Sorry I’m so late in posting the TIFF photos. I thought I had done it right after the event.They say that memory is the first thing to go lol Please remember that all screencaps will include spoilers so don’t check them out until you’ve seen the movie or you might be spoiled.

DEN OF GEEK – The mother of almost all ghost stories is coming to Netflix with a TV series adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s 1959 horror novel The Haunting of Hill House, which happens to be one of Stephen King’s favorite books. It was made into a classic piece of early 1960s cinema (and a 1990s remake), and will soon arrive at Netflix in a modernized form.
The Haunting of Hill House will arrive on Netflix in a 10-episode form, written, produced, and directed by Mike Flanagan, who directed Oculus, Hush and will adapt King’s Gerald’s Game into a movie. Flanagan will produce with his producing partner Trevor Macy for Amblin TV and Paramount TV.
Timothy Hutton joins The Haunting of Hill House as a lead actor, reports Deadline. While his character was not named, it is believed (but not confirmed,) that Hutton will portray the patriarch of the haunted house-owning Crane family, married to Carla Gugino’s matriarchal character.
Hutton came into prominence early in his career, winning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 1981 for his role in director Robert Redford’s drama Ordinary People. He’s appeared in films such as Taps, Iceman, Made in Heaven, French Kiss, Kinsey, Secret Window and The Good Shepherd. However, later generations know him better as a TV mainstay with notable runs on American Crime and a longtime run as the mastermind of the justice-delivering rogues of Leverage.
The Haunting of Hill House Cast
Michiel Huisman has been tapped to star in Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, reports THR. In a revelation that may shed light on the context of this reboot series, Huisman will play a character named Steven Crane, a published author of supernatural-related books and the oldest living sibling of the Crane family. The Netherlands-native is best known for his role on HBO’s Game of Thrones as Daario Naharis. Besides roles in his native country, Huisman was notably seen in recurring roles on Orphan Black, Nashville, Treme, and miniseries Harley and the Davidsons, as well as films such as 2015’s The Age of Adaline and 2017’s The Ottoman Lieutenant. He has quite a full docket of film roles, notably in director Gideon Raff’s historical spy thriller Red Sea Diving Resort, which stars Chris Evans.
STRAIGHT – The cinematic adaptation of Richard Wagamese’s 2012 novel Indian Horse will be coming to this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival.

Elevation Pictures announced today (August 23) that the Ontario-shot film, directed by Stephen Campanelli (Momentum), will have its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
With a screenplay by Vancouver screenwriter Dennis Foon (On the Farm) and executive producers Roger Frappier and Clint Eastwood, the story follows the life of Saul Indian Horse, who was taken away from his Ojibwa family. After being placed in a Catholic residential school, he was not allowed to speak his language or denied his Indigenous heritage as he witnesses abuse. He finds escape in hockey, where his talent helps him escape the school, eventually even becoming a professional player. However, he struggles to deal with traumatic experiences of the past that continue to haunt him.
Three actors portray the lead character at different stages of his life: Sladen Peltier plays Saul at 6 years old, Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant) at 15 years old, and Ajuawak Kapashesit at 22 years old.
The cast also includes residential school survivor Edna Manitowabi as Saul’s grandmother, B.C. actor Evan Adams (Smoke Signals), as well as Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Michael Murphy (X-Men: The Last Stand), and Martin Donovan (Ant-Man).
