How I Shot That: Dp Larkin Seiple Explains How to Shoot an Action Film on an Indie Scale

27 January 2016 9:41 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 2016 Indiewire Sundance Bible: All the Reviews, Interviews and News Posted During The Festival Los Angeles-based cinematographer Larkin Seiple is building a resume around Sundance movies. After spending a few years shooting music videos, Seiple transitioned to features with last year's Kevin Bacon comedy-thriller "Cop Car," a major discovery from last year's Sundance midnight section. Now he's back with one of the stranger entries in the festival's U.S. competition, "Swiss Army Man," in which a marooned Paul Dano hauls around a talking corpse played by Daniel Radcliffe. The movie's unique setting and surreal events led to a number of technical challenges that Seiple happily confronted. The director of photography shows no signs of slowing down, having already wrapped the Miles Teller boxing movie "Bleed for This."  What camera lens did you use? We used Arri Alexa Xt with Cooke Anamorphic Lenses. We also used a Phantom High Speed. »

"Tremors 5" Delivers on Action and Gore but Misses on Comedy

16 January 2016 12:10 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

No film franchise should ever make it to its fifth installment. A prime example: Disney is currently dead-set on making a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie when we all know that stretching Johnny Depp’s eyeliner-smudged antics out into an entire trilogy was already teetering on the edge of way too much. I can understand the desire to turn one film into a trilogy, a la Peter Jackson. Trilogies tend to form a natural story arc, from (satisfying) beginning to (usually kind of boring) middle to (hopefully satisfying) end. However, once you venture beyond three, you are venturing into worlds best left unexplored. Yet I suppose one cannot expect storytelling restraint for the sake of avoiding creative burnout when it comes to the Tremors franchise. The original 1990 film starring Kevin Bacon, Reba McIntyre and Michael Gross is fondly remembered by many for its bizarre genre mash-up of comedy with good old-fashioned creature feature horror. »

Connie Nielsen has come on board to play Hippolyta, the queen of the Amazons and mother of Princess Diana, aka Wonder Woman in the Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment pic.

WB had no comment.

She joins Gal Gadot, who plays the superhero; Chris Pine, who portrays Steve Trevor; Danny Huston, Robin Wright, David Thewlis and Ewen Bremner. Pine recently said the movie is set during World War I.

Patty Jenkins will direct the film, which will be released on June 23, 2017.

Charles Roven is exec producing the DC Comics tentpole for Atlas Entertainment. Zack Snyder, director of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” is also producing.

The studio had originally sought Nicole Kidman for the role, but scheduling conflicts with her HBO show “Big Little Lies” forced her to pass on the project. Rumors had recently circulated about Wright’s role being rewritten to Hippolyta, but the studio kept Wright on »

What's New on TV, Netflix, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: January 11-17

11 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"The Martian"

Unfortunately, the poster on this one was misleading -- they never actually let us bring Matt Damon home after seeing the movie. (His wife would probably disapprove.) You can, however, take home Ridley Scott's acclaimed Mars mission movie "The Martian" on DVD and Blu-ray starting January 12. The Blu-ray editions include more than 90 minutes of special features, including five "in-world" pieces, and featurettes from the cast, director, and producers. There's also a gag reel, which should be fun.

"Hotel Transylvania 2"

Drac's Pack is back in the sequel to "Hotel Transylvania," as they put the son of Mavis and Johnny through a "monster-in-training" boot camp to bring out his vampire side. The DVD, out January 12, includes feature commentary with the director and vocal cast, »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 1: #100-76

5 January 2016 4:34 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A new year means an opportunity to reflect on the past. This is our list of the 100 best films of the last 15 years, Part 1 #100 through 76.

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, »
