Director Gore Verbinski is pushing creepy to new limits in his latest film A Cure for Wellness. A departure from his previous action adventures – The Mexican, The Lone Ranger & Pirates of The Carribean, Cure is an emotional roller coaster through a Swiss spa. But, the treatments aren’t your typical massages and steam baths.

Instead, a Wall Street hot shot played by Dane DeHaan, gets more than he bargained for when he unassumingly tries to retrieve a colleague from a wellness center … and then the mayhem begins.

So what can fans expect? The unexpected, and lots of eels … and we’re not talking about the kind you find on your sushi. The sea creature plays a prominent role in the plot, so get ready to squirm. And if you’ve seen the trailer, one such scene involves Mia Goth taking a bath in a tub full.

Then of course there’s the series of “treatments” that DeHaan’s character undergoes that may just give you nightmares. And, a host of  zombie-like patients whose naiveté will have you screaming at the screen.

Eventually, (after 2 hours in), you’ll figure out the best thing for everyone to do is stay away from the water.

A Cure For Wellness hits theaters February 17.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
