Gamer is set in the near future, a time when mind-control technology has taken society by storm. Humans control other humans in a mass-scale, multiplayer online game. Reclusive billionaire Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall) has created the controversial form of entertainment, “Slayers,” a hugely popular game that allows millions to act out their innermost desires and fantasies – online – in front of a global audience. Gaming has evolved into a terrifying new dimension…mind control…manipulation…people playing people! At the center is Kable (Gerard Butler), the superstar and cult hero of “Slayers”. Kable is controlled by Simon (Logan Lerman), a young gamer with rock star status who continues to defy all odds by guiding Kable to victory each week. Taken from his family, imprisoned, and forced to fight against his will, the modern day gladiator must survive long enough to escape the game to free his family, regain his identity, and save mankind from Castle’s ruthless technology.

“Spawn” creator Todd McFarlane has announced that he has officially begun writing the screenplay for a new movie based on the character.
“The story has been in my head for 7 or 8 years,” McFarlane said. “The movie idea is neither a recap or continuation. It is a standalone story that will be R-rated. Creepy and scary.”
He added that “the tone of this ‘Spawn’ movie will be for a more older audience. Like the film ‘Departed.’”
In August of 1997, New Line released a Spawn movie that grossed $87.8 million worldwide. It starred Michael Jai White, John Leguizamo and Martin Sheen.

The New York International Latino Film Festival, which runs from July 27 to Aug. 2, will kick off with Peter Bratt’s “The Mission,” starring Benjamin Bratt; include a tribute to John Leguizamo; and conclude with John Cotten’s Mexican crime drama “La Linea” (The Line).
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the fest will utilize a number of new venues in New York City like the Clearview Cinemas Chelsea 9 and the School of Visual Arts Theater.
“The NYILFF began as a dream to showcase our talent and to empower Latinos,” fest exec director Calixto Chinchilla said. “We’ve been fortunate to have grown in size and stature. This year, we have everything; highly anticipated Hollywood premieres to independent films from filmmakers across the globe, industry forums, music showcases and free outdoor events for everyone.”
“La Mission,” the opening night film, is set in San Francisco’s Mission District and stars Benjamin Bratt as a reformed inmate and recovering alcoholic who discovers his son is gay.
For the Leguizamo tribute, the performer will be honored with the Tres Generaciones COA Award, which recognizes outstanding achievements in Latino filmmaking. The evening will include the screening of the actor’s 2007 film “Where God Left His Shoes,” directed by Salvatore Stabile.
“La Linea,” the closing night film stars Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Esai Morales, Armand Assante, Bruce Davison, Jason Connery, Michael DeLorenzo, Joe Morton, Valerie Cruz, Jordi Vilasuso, Danny Trejo, Kevin Gage and Gary Daniels.
The fest also will host a Dominican night, screening Cruz Angeles’ “Don’t Let Me Drown.”
The fest will feature several premieres, among which are: the music compilation film “Calle 13: Sin Mapa”; the short “Los Bandoleros/Fast & Furious”; “Red Apples Falling,” a look at the music of Harlem rap star Jim Jones; “Life is Hot in Cracktown”; the sports documentary “Assault in the Ring”; and the cheerleading movie “Bring It On: Fight to the Finish.”
