Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.
Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

Montreal World Festival
Celebrating its 38th year with a distinctly Gallic flavor, Mwff will open with “We Love You, You Bastard,” from French director — and longtime festival supporter — Claude Lelouch. Montreal closes with a tribute to another French legend, the late Alain Resnais and his last film, “Life of Riley.” But it’s not all France all the time. The fest is dedicated to the late Latin American literary icon, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and will be developing the new European Films Screening section, along with greater co-production ties with a large Chinese delegation of key industry players.

Telluride Film Festival
Telluride has always been an intimate, casual, carefully curated festival that doesn’t announce its sked until the day before it begins. The festival’s reputation — it has hosted several Oscar winners and nominees over the years — means that cinema lovers don’t mind going in blind. »

When The Shining originally hit theaters back in 1980, it ran two minutes longer than the version we're all familiar with, including a hospital scene that Kubrick cut out a week into the film's theatrical run. Now that scene is being put back into the film for a special screening...
...which is, needless to say, a must-attend for all of you UK fans. Read on!
This year's Film4 FrightFest kicks off in London on August 21st, and we've just learned that the extended cut of The Shining will screen on Sunday night, August 24th. The 146-minute version includes a scene at the end of Wendy Torrance in a hospital bed, being told by Mr. Ullman that Jack's body couldn't be found. The screening will mark the first time the deleted scene has been publicly shown since the movie's original theatrical release.
It's interesting to note that Kubrick's horror masterpiece was heavily »

We continue our conversation with directors Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, discussing Stanley Kubrick's Lolita connection to Errol Flynn, costume designer Orry-Kelly's role beyond the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis and Ethel Barrymore in Hollywood, and the palettes in Otto Preminger's Bonjour Tristesse, Richard Quine's Strangers When We Meet and Alfred Hitchcock's North By Northwest. Kevin Kline, Dakota Fanning and Susan Sarandon with Matt Kane, Bryan Batt and Max Casella star in The Last Of Robin Hood.
Anne-Katrin Titze: When I spoke with Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth about 20,000 Days On Earth, which is their documentary on Nick Cave, little did I expect that your film and theirs would have something in common. And that is Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. »

This week's issue of Entertainment Weekly includes two new photos from director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, featuring stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Take a look at the photos below, then read on to see what inspired Christopher Nolan to make this sci-fi adventure.
"I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey when it was re-released in England, in the wake of Star Wars' success and the craze for science fiction. I was 7 years old, so I couldn't claim to understand the film. I just felt this extraordinary experience of being taken to another world. It had a larger-than-life quality."
Interstellar star John Lithgow, who plays the father-in-law to Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), one of the men sent on an expedition into space to save our world, revealed that the movie has the perfect balance of story and spectacle. »
Remember back in January, when Entertainment Weekly ran their "Gone Girl" cover story and director David Fincher made a comment about how the filmmakers behind the adaptation of the best-selling novel had tossed aside the book's ending, and "started from scratch"? (People then apparently freaked out because, um, movies based on novels have to be totally faithful and apparently people who love "Gone Girl." Wonder if we should tell that to Stanley Kubrick...) It got so bad that Gillian Flynn, who not only authored the novel but also penned the screenplay, had to diffuse the tension during a Reddit Ama (because you know how heated those can get), saying that Fincher "greatly exaggerated" the alteration to the original text. Well, Entertainment Weekly is back with another "Gone Girl" cover and even more Fincher quotes, in which he kind of explains himself (via Vulture).
According to David Fincher, who says that »

Scandinavian pop purveyors Robyn and Royksopp present a sci-fi mini-epic in the new video for "Monument," from their recent collaboration, the ethereal Ep "Do It Again." Populated with images of infinite outer space, infinitesimal inner space, floating orbs and the stoned, wondrous expressions of singer Robyn and the Royksopp boys, the video recalls the trippy, mind-expanding visual feasts of such films as Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" and Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life." Director Max Vitali (who's previously worked with Smashing Pumpkins and others) utilized a wire-based camera called a "spider-cam" to capture the clip's weightless feeling. The leisurely-paced 6-minute video echoes the song's large, expansive and meditative groove. It's hypnotic and relaxing without ever feeling like a pretentious drag. Watch it here: "Do It Again" is now available, and Roby and Royksopp's tour dates can be found here. »

MGM and Paramount are remaking the classic "Ben-Hur," with Timur Bekmambetov directing. Because they can. And because, well, why not, they're seeking out Tom Hiddleston for the title role. Right now, development is in early stages, and the actor has a few projects to consider, including another MGM pic, "Me Before You." So no word yet if Loki will ride a newfangled chariot when the film hits on February 26, 2016. If this movie has to be made, we'd be happy to see him lead it. [Deadline] "Dexter" star Michael C. Hall is returning to TV to lead the miniseries "God Fearing Man." As Stanley Kubrick fans know, it's one of the Lost And Unmade Projects the filmmaker never got to during his lifetime. Once slated as a feature, a couple years back it was refashioned for TV, chronicling the true story of "Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who went on to become »

Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick left behind a few unproduced projects when he passed, but now one of them appears to be finally moving forward. THR reports that Michael C. Hall will star in the Kubrick-penned God Fearing Man, which is being shopped to networks as a miniseries. Entertainment One is producing the mini, which tells the true story of Canadian minister turned safecracker Herbert Emerson Wilson, who stole nearly $16,000,000 as an American bank robber in the early 20th Century. Hall will play Wilson and also executive produce the project alongside Steve Lanning and Philip Hobbs of Philco Films. Hobbs was a frequent collaborator of Kubrick’s, having worked on a number of projects including Full Metal Jacket. Since the dreadful ending of Dexter, Hall has sought out work in more independent fare as of late. He had a memorable turn in last year’s Kill Your Darlings and fronted the genre »

A year after the final season of Showtime’s Dexter, Michael C. Hall is set to return to the small screen playing another complex antihero – though this one appears to be more into bank-robbing than bloodletting. The Emmy nominee is set to star in God Fearing Man, Stanley Kubrick’s unproduced drama which has been in development at Entertainment One since 2012.
British screenwriter Stephen R. Clark is penning the series, which will tell the stranger-than-fiction true story of Canadian minister Herbert Emerson Wilson, who eventually became one of the best safecrackers and most successful American bank robbers in the early 20th century. Hall is both starring as Wilson and executive-producing. Philip Hobbs, who worked with Kubrick for 15 years on projects including Full Metal Jacket, is also producing along with Philco Films’ Steve Lanning (The Secret Garden).

Over the last couple of years a number of extensive, impressive behind-the-scenes photos from almost all of Stanley Kubrick's films have surfaced online, ending up in complete galleries (see this one for 2001) showing the entirety of production. While we've all poured over these photos, a brand new set of shots are appearing online thanks to tweets from Kubrick's own daughter, Vivian Kubrick. Tweeting with the name @ViKu1111, she's been posting a series of B&W editing room shots, which she says came about because her father gave her a Nikkormat camera for a Christmas present in 1974 and she went photo crazy. Take a look. For those doubting whether this twitter account is real, her shots are one-of-a-kind and they're all the kind you'd only see from a close family member. Her profile says: "Vivian Kubrick is the daughter of film director Stanley Kubrick, she wrote the film score for »
