Why Starz’s ‘Now Apocalypse’ Is Gregg Araki’s ‘Imagination Unleashed’

  • Variety
Why Starz’s ‘Now Apocalypse’ Is Gregg Araki’s ‘Imagination Unleashed’
Gregg Araki has agreed to meet at the coffee shop where he does most of his writing. It’s a Starbucks in Hollywood — we won’t say which one — and frankly, it’s amazing that he can get any work done here without being recognized.

“It’s not like I’m famous,” he insists.

Try telling that to the queer kids, punks and rebels whose minds were blown by the director’s films back in the ’90s, when Araki unleashed such anarchic grenades as “The Doom Generation” and “Nowhere” — movies, bright as gumballs but laced with razor blades, in which angry, oversexed teens and twentysomethings try to figure out where they fit in the world.

“More teen angst,” teases the title card that opens his 1993 indie “Totally F***ed Up” — a phrase that neatly sums up Araki’s career, even if today’s teens were not yet born when he started terrorizing mainstream values.

20 Crazy Behind-The-Scenes Revelations About Donnie Darko

Donnie Darko is a 2001 movie that was written and directed by Richard Kelly. It follows Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) as he tries to navigate high school and life, only to discover that the world he lives in is not exactly what he thinks it is on the surface.

When the movie initially premiered, it didn't do well in theaters, largely due to its subject matter. It debuted just after 9/11 and featured a plane engine crashing into a house.

Eventually, the beautifully intriguing and original movie found its audiences and it has steadily grown in popularity over the years.

In 2017, it was re-released to a successful run in theaters, in 4K, for its 15th anniversary. There's also talk that Richard Kelly will write and direct a sequel to the film.

The movie stars Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal (as Donnie and Elizabeth Darko), Jena Malone (Gretchen Ross), Drew Barrymore (Karen Pomeroy), Noah Wyle

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today
On Oct. 26, 2001, Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly’s sci-fi film about a despondent teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal in his second major film role) who befriends a giant bunny named Frank (James Duval), was released in theaters. The film told a cryptic narrative of a high schooler who is sent on an existential journey after he escapes death from a falling jet engine and learns that the world has just over 28 days before it ends. In that time, Donnie fends off the torments of being a teen -- a testy older sister (Gyllenhaal’s real-life older sister, Maggie), concerned parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), overbearing teachers (Beth Grant), mild flirtations with a new female student (Jena Malone) -- while trying to figure out, in some ways, how to save the world.

“That was a movie that was more about the psychological journey of adolescence and the confusion of it all,” Gyllenhaal tells Et. And while it

Trailer for Horror Film 'The Black Room' Starring Natasha Henstridge

"It will try to seduce you, trick you with pleasure, make you want more. It feeds off your desires." Check out the official trailer for a gore-filled horror film titled The Black Room, from filmmaker Rolfe Kanefsky. The film stars Natasha Henstridge (where has she been recently?) and Lukas Hassel as a newly married couple who move into their dream house, only to discover there's something evil in the "black room" in the cellar. Also starring Lin Shaye, Dominique Swain, James Duval, Auggie Duke, and Caleb Scott. From the looks of it, this doesn't seem like anything particular special. There's new horror films being made all the time, and this one seems forgettable despite the marketing. The flaming title card really tops it off. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Rolfe Kanefsky's The Black Room, direct from YouTube: Paul (Lukas Hassel) and Jennifer Hemdale (Natasha Henstridge) have just moved into their dream house.

Donnie Darko 3 Planned with Original Director Richard Kelly
Will we finally get Donnie Darko 3, a true sequel to the Jake Gyllenhaal sci-fi classic? Last year, the 2001 thriller Donnie Darko celebrated its 15th Anniversary with a 4K re-release in select U.K. theaters, although it never made it to the U.S. Now that the re-release is available on Blu-ray, writer-director Richard Kelly revealed in a new interview that he does have plans for a true follow-up that will return to this unique universe. While he doesn't offer specifics, the filmmaker explained that it will be even bigger and more ambitious than the original.

"I think there's something much bigger and more ambitious to do in that universe. It's big and expensive and I think there's time to get to that. I want to make sure we've got the budget to do it justice and not to compromise anything. Another story in this world needs resources and we need to have that in place.
