Kyra Sedgwick on Why She Felt ‘Terrified’ When Falling in Love with Husband of 31 Years Kevin Bacon
Kyra Sedgwick admits that falling in love with Kevin Bacon wasn’t easy for her.

The actress, 54, spoke to Vulture about meeting Bacon, 61, while filming their movie Lemon Sky and marrying in 1988.

Sedgwick married and had welcomed their first child, son Travis, by the time she was 23, a fact her younger self would have thought “f—ing insane.”

“I mean, I’d been working professionally since I was 16. And I was living on my own, making my own money. I was like, ‘I’m fiercely independent,’” she said.

She continued, “So when I did fall in love with Kevin, it

Village Roadshow Adapting Charles Pellegrino’s Ecological-Horror Novel ‘Dust’

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Deadline has learned that Village Roadshow Pictures has optioned New York Times-bestselling author Charles Pellegrino’s environmental horror novel Dust, which Dan Berk and Robert Olsen will adapt for the screen.

Published near the turn of the millennium in 1998, Dust is strangely prescient about the disastrous, inevitable effects of human progress on Earth’s ecosystem. The story follows maverick paleobiologist Richard Sinclair, who is one of the first to suspect the truth: that a series of random episodes are symptoms of a chain reaction triggered by a die-off of the world’s insects. As the old-world order collapses, Sinclair and a small group of scientists embark on a race against time.

Pellegrino is a writer and a scientist working in paleobiology and astronomy, a designer for projects including rockets and nuclear devices (non-military propulsion systems), composite construction materials and magnetically levitated transportation systems. After sailing with Robert Ballard

‘Where’s My Roy Cohn?’ Has Respectable Debut, ‘Loro’ Opens Quietly – Specialty Box Office
All was fairly quiet on the specialty box office front this week, with the debut of just a handful of films. The most notable of the bunch was Matt Tyrnauer’s riveting Where’s My Roy Cohn? Other openers this weekend included a Loro, as well as Gunpowder & Sky’s horror-comedy Villains, starring It Chapter Two‘s Bill Skarsgård and Kyra Sedgwick, which had openings that were decent, but nothing earth-shattering.

Sony Pictures Classics feature documentary Where’s My Roy Cohn? opened exclusively in New York and Los Angeles on four screens, and is estimated to rake in $42,364. Deadline learned that it performed better in New York than it did in Los Angeles — which is probably because the ruthless Donald Trump mentor was more of a New York figure. Nonetheless, Spc hopes to add to its box office stack once Roy Cohn continues to expand next week.

Meanwhile, IFC Films

‘Villains’ Film Review: Small-Time Crooks Meet Very Bad People in Charmingly Eccentric Horror Comedy
Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s “Villains” takes place in a universe where criminals, from bargain-basement gas-station stickup artists to terrifyingly violent serial killers, are all utterly delightful. Four such ne’er-do-wells finds themselves in the same house in “Villains.” Violence breaks out, mind games are played, and it’s all so adorably eccentric that you don’t ever want it to stop.

Bill Skarsgård (“It Chapter Two”) and Maika Monroe (“It Follows”) co-star as Mickey and Jules, two young thieves who can barely rob a liquor store. Opening the cash register is, to these kids, a task on par with the Riddle of the Sphinx. And yet, thanks to the power of teamwork, they succeed in their Herculean task of opening that drawer. There is nothing they can’t accomplish when they work together. Maybe. If it’s easy enough.

Villains Review: Bill Skarsgard Brings the It Factor in Twisted Crime Comedy

Villains Review: Bill Skarsgard Brings the It Factor in Twisted Crime Comedy
So many movies come down to the simple notion of good vs evil. The just conquering the unjust. But moviegoers, rightfully so, have always had something of an obsession with evildoers. Villains doesn't necessarily present us with a traditional notion of good. Instead, it presents us with a group of bad men and women, of varying degrees, in an irreverent and twistedly comedic scenario, that makes for a highly amusing and very surprising fall flick. It's aided dramatically by Bill Skarsgard, who toplines a perfectly cast, small ensemble that elevates this movie greatly.

Villains centers on a pair of small-time crooks, Mickey (Bill Skarsg&#229rd) and Jules (Maika Monroe). These two lovers are on the run, headed southbound for a fresh start. Unfortunately, things get rather tricky when, thanks to some poor planning, their car dies shortly after they robbed a convenience store. Out of options, they decide to break

'Villains' Stars Bill Skarsgard and Maika Monroe on Building Chemistry in 10 Days
As the faces of two of the most beloved genre films in recent memory, Villains stars Bill Skarsgard and Maika Monroe know a thing or two about villainy. The It and It Follows actors return to the big screen via Villains, a dark comedy with plenty of thrills and scares. The independent film from co-writers/directors Dan Berk and Robert Olsen takes place mostly in one location and functions much like a stage play, as Mickey (Skarsgard) and Jules (Monroe) are lovers on the run who take refuge in a seemingly empty house.

Maika Monroe Shines As Part Of A Quartet Of “Villains”

Maika Monroe deserves to be a massive star. She first came on to my, and many folks’, radar with her tremendous turn in It Follows. More than just a scream queen in the making, Monroe had an X factor about her that suggested greatness. She again shows that in the new comedic thriller Villains, which teams her up with three other massively entertaining performances to craft a wholly surprising delight. Opening this week, the film easily could have been little more than a knock off of Quentin Tarantino’s work, but instead, it finds its own quirky wavelengths and delights from start to finish. The movie is a mixture of comedy, drama, horror, and thriller, all told with the allure of a crime caper. Jules (Monroe) and Mickey (Bill Skarsgård) are a couple hoping to rob their way to a new life in Florida. After holding up a gas station,

‘Endings, Beginnings’ Review: Drake Doremus Starts to Get His Mojo Back With New Muse Shailene Woodley
Early in Drake Doremus’ “Endings, Beginnings,” leading lady Daphne (Shailene Woodley) makes a comment to a potential paramour about feeling as if she’s being called to do things a twenty-something might do, like travel the world or join up with the Peace Corps, youthful diversions that a thirty-something like her has no business dabbling in anymore. But it’s all the other things that Daphne spends the film dabbling in — from living in her put-together sister’s guest house or looking for a job when she has no definable skills or even, as is often the crux of a Doremus feature, engaging in dangerous and immature relationships with unsuitable partners — that make it clear which parts of her are stuck in a life she should have stopped living a decade ago.

But is that ever going to change? Doremus’ films, from the sublime “Like Crazy” and “Breathe” to the ridiculous “Newness” and “Zoe,

‘Villains’ Trailer: Maika Monroe and Bill Skarsgård’s Home Invasion Goes Awry

Two stand-outs of modern horror have teamed for a new genre feature. Two It stars–It Follows lead Maika Monroe and It‘s Pennywise himself Bill Skarsgård–get more than they bargained for when a home invasion goes awry in Villains. Directed by Dan Berk & Robert Olsen, the film premiered at SXSW to strong acclaim and ahead of a theatrical release this September, the first trailer has landed.

Film School Rejects‘ Abby Olcese said, “Villains is still a very fun exercise in genre and lets its performers go hog wild in exploring the comedic possibilities of its wacko characters. There are some standout moments that make the film worth experiencing, and it displays total commitment from every angle, from the performances to the impeccable set design and costumes.”

First Trailer for 'Villains' Thriller with Bill Skarsgård & Maika Monroe

"This is a hell of a predicament we've found ourselves in." Alter has unveiled a trailer for an indie thriller titled Villains, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year.

Starring Bill Skarsgård, Maika Monroe, Jeffrey Donovan, Kyra Sedgwick, Noah Robbins, and Blake Baumgartner.

Villains Trailer: Bill Skarsgard & Maika Monroe Are Two Very Bad People
The trailer for Villains has dropped and it looks like an unexpected dark comedy hit. It Chapter Two actor Bill Skarsgard shifts gears from playing Pennywise the Dancing Clown for a new role in the killer crime comedy, which seems to switch things up a lot in an effort to keep viewers on their toes while watching the movie. Right from the start, it's evident that the Villains trailer is trying to promote something very different from what we're all used to seeing in theaters and it's refreshing.

Villains revolves around Mickey and Jules, who are lovers on the run and headed southbound for a fresh start in the Sunshine State. However, things don't go as planned when their car dies after a successful gas station robbery. The couple ends up breaking into a nearby house looking for a new getaway car.
