It’s Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista versus an entire Texas battalion in New York City in this all-out action thriller from the makers of Cooties and Stake Land.

Here, front and centre as Stupe, a take no prisoners ex-Marine on the warpath against a Texas militia invading New York, Bushwick establishes Bautista – soon to be seen in Blade Runner 2049 – as an action hero on a par with Vin Diesel and The Rock.

[Interview] ‘Bushwick’ Filmmakers On the Film’s Political Inspiration

[Interview] ‘Bushwick’ Filmmakers On the Film’s Political Inspiration
The directing duo of Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott came storming into the scene a few years back with the now way cult classic Cooties. Cooties is the rare horror-comedy hybrid that actually happens to be equal parts scary and equal parts funny. We called it a relentless riot. Their latest film, Bushwick (read our review from Sundance), takes […]

Bushwick Directors on Casting, Breaking Technical Ground & Predicting the Future [Interview]

Bushwick is intense. The thriller stars Brittany Snow and Dave Bautista as strangers who find themselves working together when their neighbourhood is suddenly attacked. The pair are trying to make their way to safety through a war zone with little knowledge of how or why their world suddenly imploded into all out war for survival.

I had a chance to speak with directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott who have been working on this project for six years and even managed to keep it alive through directing their first feature film, the zombie comedy Cooties.

I was impressed by what Murnion and Milott achieved with Bushwick and was excited to speak to the pair about their action movie which, in additional to some impressive technical feats, also features great pe [Continued ...]

‘Bushwick’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Brittany Snow, Dave Bautista, Angelic Zambrana, Jeremie Harris, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Alex Breaux, Arturo Castro | Written by Nick Damici, Graham Reznick | Directed by Cary Murnion, Jonathan Milott

Directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (Cooties), this pacey U.S. invasion thriller picks up points for its premise, performances and photography, but the script passes up the chance for some political commentary.

The film’s extremely strong opening has college student Lucy (Brittany Snow) getting off the subway in Bushwick, New York and suddenly finding herself in the middle of a war zone, with armed militia on the streets. Dodging the hails of gunfire, Lucy is rescued by hulking ex-Marine Stupe (Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista), who agrees to help her make it to her grandmother’s house, a few blocks away. However, they soon discover that the situation is worse than they thought

Review: Bushwick Takes a Provocative and Often Chilling Look Into the Abyss

Ever since I saw Cooties in 2014 and fought with our founding editor in order to review the film (I lost out, of course) I’ve been anxious to see how Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott would follow up on their delightfully offbeat take on genre cinema. And over the last few years, said founding editor and the partners in his production company helped Milott and Murnion shepherd a high-concept apocalypse piece set in one of the sections of Brooklyn. Bushwick begins with a couple walking in a subway station -- I believe locals call them “trains”, but that’s just one of the faults of New York life -- and having a pleasant enough conversation about nothing in particular. The first sense something interesting is happening...

Fantasia 2017: ‘Bushwick’ Preview

Hot off their classroom-zombie opus Cooties, directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott conceived Bushwick and turned scripting duties over to a couple of New York indie-filmmaking fixtures: Nick Damici (Stake Land) and Graham Reznick. Their combined forces resulted in a thriller that almost never stops moving, with Brittany Snow ably conveying Lucy’s discovery of her survival instinct and Dave Bautista diverges from his iconic wisecracking Drax to a more taciturn, surprisingly affecting but still kick-ass hero.

A trip to Grandma’s place has never been as dangerous as it turns out to be for Lucy (Brittany Snow), who’s bringing her new boyfriend to meet the family in her old neighbourhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. The couple is suddenly, violently separated as helicopter-borne, machine-gun-wielding attackers overrun the streets, shooting anyone they see. Lucy’s life is saved by Stupe (Dave Bautista), a former soldier who helps her attempt to find

Dave Bautista Fights Texan Separatists In New Trailer For ‘Bushwick’

  • The Playlist
You might not expect a film starring Dave Bautista to play both the Sundance Film Festival and Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, but that’s what happened with “Bushwick.” The no-nonsense action thriller seems to have enough pedigree for high profile festival berths, even if it does look a bit ridiculous, at least as far as the premise is concerned.

Co-starring Brittany Snow, and directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott (“Cooties“), the story reimagines the titular, hip Brooklyn neighborhood as ground zero by an invasion of Texan militants.

M.F.A. Acquired for Us Distribution by Dark Sky Films & Mpi Media Group

  • DailyDead
As scary as a cabin in the woods can be, one of the most disturbing backdrops for a film can be the college culture, where horrors that are all too real sometimes take place. Such is the case in Natalie Leite’s M.F.A., which made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival (read Heather's review here) and has now been acquired for Us distribution by Dark Sky Films.

Press Release: New York, NY (June 8, 2017) - Mpi Media Group announced today that it has acquired all rights in the U.S. to M.F.A., a critically acclaimed powerful thriller starring Francesca Eastwood in a stand out role. The film, from female director and female screenwriter, takes on the searing current issue of sexual violence on campus. M.F.A will be released domestically this fall under the company's Dark Sky Films banner.

Sundance London 2017 Review – Bushwick (2017)

Bushwick, 2017

Directed by Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott.

Starring Dave Bautista, Brittany Snow, Christian Navarro, Jeremie Harris, and Arturo Castro.

Synopsis:

A young grad student teams up with an ex-military medic in an attempt to survive a brutal invasion in Bushwick, New York.

Hot off the runaway success of their debut, hit zom-com Cooties, Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion have really upped the stakes this time round, stretching another limited budget to all new, if ever-so-slightly wobbly heights, and with uncontrollable violence still very much front and centre. Bushwick as an idea – a 21st century civil war ignited almost solely by the bible-belt of America, and a metric-tonne of guns — is a borderline genius one. And with both an explosive and very subtly clever script anchoring the whole thing in place (from Stake Land’s Nick Damici and Until Dawn’s Graham Reznick no less), it’s clear that there

Bushwick: Check Out Three Teaser Posters For The Urban Invasion Thriller

Bushwick, an urban invasion thriller directed by Cooties' Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, played tonight at Cannes in the Directors' Fortnight Features program. Yesterday, Collider debuted three new teaser posters, running with the colors of American patriotism. You will find them below, each a slight variant from the other apart from the color scheme.    Bushwick stars Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect), Angelic Zambrana (Precious), and Jeremie Harris ("Legion"). The chilling and poignant tale was written by Nick Damici and Graham Reznick; so long ago they come across as damned prophets now that Bushwick is coming to U.S. cinemas, VOD and Digital HD on August 27th.   When Lucy (Brittany Snow) steps off the subway, she walks into an utter bloodbath...

The 5 Best Movies to Look Out for at Sundance London 2017

Ben Robins with the five best movies to look out for at Sundance London 2017…

Storming back to London’s Picturehouse Central off the back of an incredibly successful rebrand last year, Sundance’s London branch is fast becoming one of the city’s go-to film festivals. And while Netflix and Amazon have already sunk their claws into some of the biggest titles from the flagship Utah fest back in January (both The Discovery and Grand Jury Prize winner I don’t feel at home in this world anymore are already available to stream), there’s still plenty to get excited about, theatrically speaking.

Sundance London is all about showcasing the best and brightest from the bigger Sundance banner and this year’s selection has a helluva lot of originality.

One of the buzziest titles that premiered back in Utah in January was Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani

Sundance 2017 Review Round-Up: Bushwick, Bitch, and A Ghost Story

  • DailyDead
While at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, I had the opportunity to check out a few films that were just a bit outside the horror realm, including Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott’s sociopolitical actioner Bushwick, Marianna Palka’s bleak comedy Bitch, and David Lowery’s unforgettable A Ghost Story, and you can read my reviews for these on-the-fringe-of-horror titles right here in one place.

Bushwick: You couldn’t ask for a bigger departure from Milott and Murnion’s previous film, Cooties, than their most recent effort, Bushwick. Their frantically-paced actioner stars Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow as two residents of the New York borough who must fend off an invasion after several red states decide to declare a new civil war on the rest of the country. By giving us very little information on just what is happening throughout Bushwick, co-writers Nick Damici and Graham Reznick keep viewers firmly
