[Movies] Fault in our Stars Nat Wolff in "Paper Towns"

“Fault In Our Stars’” breakout actor Nat Wolff received rave reviews for his performance opposite Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley in the movie. He was 11 when he starred in “The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie” in where he also provided songs and lyrics for the film. Nickelodeon’s spin-off television series, “The Naked Brothers Band,” led to several prestigious awards. Making an early impression, the gifted young actor appeared in “Stuck in Love,” “Admission and Peace,” “Love & Misunderstanding” and will soon be seen in movies such as “Ashby,” “The Intern” and “The Stand.”

With strong and notable character portrayals in his film resume, Wolff stars in the latest John Green book adaptation “Paper Towns.” In the very relatable coming of age movie, Wolff plays Quentin (known as Q) who has been smitten with his enigmatic next door neighbor Margo, played by Cara Delevingne, for as long as he can remember. Over the years they have drifted apart and barely talk to each other anymore. Now 17, about to leave high school and heading for college, Q still holds a torch for the beautiful Margo. Impetuous and adventurous, she is everything he is not. Q is serious, studious and romantic. Margo is a free spirit and lives in the moment.

The action gets underway when Margo cajoles Q into joining her on a night of hijinks she has planned, to get revenge on her cheating boyfriend. The pair set off on a crazy and thrilling joy ride around town, which involves a series of pranks. Q is enamored and at the end of the magical night of adventure, wonders whether this could be the start of a romance. But the next day Margo has vanished, leaving behind a series of clues as to her whereabouts.

It was on the set of Fault that executive producer Isaac Klausner approached Nat about taking the lead in Paper Towns. “When we were on set, Isaac said to me, with a mischievous look in his eyes, that I should read Paper Towns,” the young actor recalls. About six months later Wyck Godfrey offered me the role. Even before he finished his sentence, I said yes.”

Wolff says he was drawn to the story’s coming-of-age elements. “Q is a character who plays it safe, and is smart and focused,” he explains. “He makes a lot of plans. But beyond his friendship with [best pals] Radar and Ben, he avoids the rest of the world. But through his relationship with Margo and the road trip to find her, he learns to take chances and open up.”

Nat Wolff, who has become close friends with Green, elaborates on the author’s presence on the set. “It’s funny because John jokes that on location he just walks around and eats craft service. But in reality he sets the tone for the set because he has such a great sense of humor and is such a cheerleader for the actors. John is so passionate about the process of turning his books into films. It’s easy to imagine a novelist on set, and it being the worst experience in the world for him or her, ‘They’re ruining my book!’ or something like that. But John is always there right with us. He trusts us.”

A celebration on true friendship begins when “Paper Towns” opens July 22 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

[Movies] Abegail Breslin Badass in "Final Girl"

Academy Award nominee and multi-awarded young actress Abigail Breslin, known for her remarkable portrayals in movies such as “Little Miss Sunshine,” “August: Osage County,” “Ender’s Game” and “Maggie” stars in another avant-garde role in “Final Girl.”

Abigail Breslin takes on a very tough and chilling role in “Final Girl” where the tables are turned when a group of young men becomes the hunted when they finally met their match in one girl, an assassin who’s been trained since she was young and has chosen the group to be her final task. 

Beyond the continuing battle between the sexes, in “Final Girl,” Breslin plays real badass assassin Veronica, a new student who is shy and vulnerable – the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It's only after they get her alone and escaped, eventually revealing she's armed and knows how to defend herself. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training, and she's chosen killing these boys as her final test. When the dust clears, Veronica will find out if she can be the final girl these boys ever have a chance to hurt. 

During filming, it was reported that Breslin sent a stuntman straight to the medic on the set while filming “Final Girl” after she punched him in the face. Abigail was shooting a huge action scene where she was hanging out of a car and then "pretending" to knock out her scene partner when things got hairy. Sources say that Abigail accidentally clocked the stunt guy for real and the punch was so powerful, he had to stop filming and was rushed straight to the on-set medic. Abigail was extremely apologetic when it happened. And as for the guy, he resumed filming a short time later with a giant black eye.

"She is doing everything in the movie," director Tyler Shields explained. "She is unlike anyone has ever seen her before. You will see the dangerous and the beautiful side of Abigail Breslin." 

“It’s really exciting and bizarre; and Tyler Shields directed it, and that speaks on its own, if you know who Tyler Shields is. I’m just really excited for people to see it,” Breslin stated.

Breslin stars alongside a powerful cast of young actors – Alexander Ludwig and Wes Bentley of “The Hunger Games” series and Cameron Bright of the “Twilight” series.

“Final Girl” hits theatres this July 8 from Pioneer Films.
