It’s taken years for Duncan Jones’ Mute to percolate, and now on Netflix comes the first glimpse at the Moon and Source Code helmer’s passion project, a sci-fi thriller set in Berlin in the year 2052. Alexander Skarsgård stars as Leo, a bartender unable to speak from a childhood accident who is searching for his missing girlfriend, the love of his life. He eventually gets mixed up with Cactus Bill (Paul Rudd) and Duck (Justin Theroux), irreverent U.S. Army surgeons on a mission all their own, in a story that plays out in the visually stunning, borderline dystopian city that from the trailer evokes Blade Runner but somehow edgier. We here at EPS-Cineworks are honored to provide our technical support and services to the post production team! Check out the trailer below and catch Mute now streaming on Netflix.
The laughs will keep on coming at HBO. The cabler has renewed two of its half-hour comedies, High Maintenance and Crashing, for third seasons. We’ve had the pleasure of working with the post production for the previous seasons and hope to continue working with them for this upcoming season. Crashing, created by and starring Pete Holmes, began its second season Jan. 14. The series draws on Holmes’ own experiences as a comedian, offering a behind-the-scenes look at the world of stand-up comedy. Holmes serves as executive producer, along with Judd Apatow and Judah Miller. In her review of the first season, Variety‘s Maureen Ryan wrote, “Thanks in large part to the nimble abilities and warmth of its cast and guest stars, ‘Crashing’ manages to display a lively and patient curiosity about failure, divorce and not having a place to live.
Netflix has released the first look at its upcoming reboot of the classic science fiction TV series Lost in Space. The company announced the revival in 2016. The show will keep the premise of the 1965 show, which centers around the Robinson family heading into space to establish a new colony but lands on a different world after an accident. The trailer suggests an updated but retro look for the tech and gear. The original Lost in Space ran for 85 episodes on CBS and was rebooted in 1998 as a feature film starring William Hurt and Matt LeBlanc. The show is the latest revival from Netflix and has planned to spend upward $8 billion on original content in 2018. It is our pleasure to provide our technical support to the post production crew and can’t wait to check this season out. Be sure to check out the trailer below and catch Lost in Space premiering on Netflix, April 13th!
The NBA is coming to the big screen as teased in the first look for Summit Entertainment’s upcoming comedy, Uncle Drew. In film, Dax (Get Out star Lil Rel Howrey) struggles financially after entering a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem. After draining his life savings, Dax enlists the help of basketball legend Uncle Drew (NBA star Kyrie Irving) and urges him to return to the court once again to win the coveted championship. Though willing to join the tournament, Irving’s Uncle Drew has one condition: “It’s gotta be my team. My roster.” Soon, Uncle Drew embarks on a road trip to enlist the help of his former basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie). The team of senior citizens is determined to prove that age is merely a number in the eye of the prize.“You don’t stop playing because you’re getting old. You’re old because you stop playing,” Irving’s Drew informs Howrey’s Dax, as his team is determined to win the tournament. We are currently working with the Charles and his post production team and are honored to provide them our technical services! Uncle Drew is set to hit theaters June 29.
They are thick as thieves and coming together for yet another heist. Den of Thieves 2, which will also be directed again by Gudegast, will find Big Nick (Butler) on the hunt in the streets of Europe closing in on Donnie (Jackson Jr.) who is embroiled in the dangerous world of diamond thieves and the infamous Panther mafia, as they plot a massive heist of the world’s biggest diamond exchange. Canton and Tooley will produce the sequel with Butler and Siegel’s production company G-BASE. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will produce through his production company G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. The original Den of Thieves over-performed at the box office when it was released last month. The film, which took Tooley and Canton about 15 years to bring to the screen, has yet to finish out its international run (it has about 35 markets yet to go). Worldwide, the film has grossed $57M so far. We are so proud of all the success this movie has had and only hope they choose EPS-Cineworks for the sequel! Check out Den of Thieves, in theatres now.
Disney-Marvel’s Black Panther is gaining momentum with forecasts estimating as much as $170 million during the four-day President’s Day weekend, updated tracking shows.

We spotted Sylvester Stallone, Rocky himself, editing with us! His efforts behind the camera have only intensified as he’s gotten older and benefitted from the acquired wisdom. On his Instagram he states, “Slicing away in the editing room… I enjoy this part of the picture making process a great deal. It’s amazing how you can change a performance. Actually I enjoy the process so much, I could almost live in the editing room, on some movies I feel like I have!!! Action films like Expendables and the Rambo’s take months because of the thousands of thousands of precision cuts to make the action magnified.” It is such a honor to be able to provide our services to Stallone and we wish him nothing but success.
