Appreciating the Grungy Beauty of ‘Deadpool’

16 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Deadpool,” starring Ryan Reynolds as a debauched comic-book superhero/assassin who’s like Spider-Man crossed with the Phantom of the Opera crossed with Jim Carrey, is a movie the whole world was waiting for without knowing it: a Marvel franchise caper that runs on drop-dead attitude. In the opening credits, the camera glides through a freeze-framed car crash (the men in the vehicle are at each other’s throats, and maybe a few other body parts), the whole suspended orgy of destruction set to the mocking romantic strains of “Angel of the Morning.”

The credits then proceed to thumb their nose at 1) Reynolds’ Sexiest Man Alive cover for People magazine; 2) the filmmaker, Tim Miller, whose credit reads “Directed by an Overpaid Tool”; and the entire superhero genre. The movie hasn’t even started yet, and already it’s deconstructing itself like Mad magazine crossed with a Geico commercial.

14 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jake Lacy and Breanne Hill have joined the cast of New Line’s adaptation of the classic arcade game “Rampage” starring Dwayne Johnson.

The movie reunites Johnson with his “San Andreas” team of director Brad Peyton and producer Beau Flynn.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but, like the game, “Rampage” will feature three creatures — a monstrously transformed gorilla, crocodile and wolf — who wreak havoc on North American cities and landmarks.

Coming Distractions: The Bad Batch trailer introduces the cult of Keanu Reeves

14 February 2017 6:22 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In the trailer for The Bad Batch, we see Keanu Reeves playing a mustachioed cult leader with a band of machine gun-toting young women, and a shirtless Jason Momoa wandering the desert in white pants and a cleaver holster, but this isn’t just some weird music video. It’s Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow-up to her debut film, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. The A.V. Club previewed The Bad Batch at Fantastic Fest last year, where we learned that what it has in star power, it lacks in cohesive story. In addition to Reeves and Momoa’s Jim Jones- and sensitive cannibal-types (respectively), The Bad Batch also stars newcomer Suki Waterhouse as a young woman finding her way in the lawless land that’s only Texas-adjacent, and Jim Carrey as a sun-ravaged traveler. And that’s Sneaky Pete himself, Giovanni Ribisi, popping up for good »

A Not-So-Bad Trailer for "The Bad Batch"

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Despite the largely negative response (including Nathaniel's take) that met Ana Lily Amanpour's The Bad Batch on 2016 festival circuit, color me still excited for the director's follow-up to A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. At the very least, I've been quite eager to get a look at how her visual and tonal stylings have evolved for this next creepfest - one of our many 2017 forays in cannibalism. However, glimpses at what Amanpour (reuniting with Girl cinematographer Lyle Vincent) has crafted have been scant until this just-released trailer.

The trailer promises ample grimness and Jason Momoa chest gazing between some pretty transfixing visuals. While the trailer focuses on its own star wattage (exciting Keanu Reeves character choice alert!), surprisingly it omits mentioning Jim Carrey's Wtf role in the film. Or is that basically the film's worst kept secret? The Bad Batch opens on June 23!

From the director of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night comes The Bad Batch. Don't go past the fence...

Warning: beyond this fence is no longer the territory of Texas, we see in the opening shot of the first trailer for the upcoming dystopian film The Bad Batch. Anyone you might encounter beyond the fence is not American and is not subject to its laws. Good luckThe Bad Batch trailer shows a society outside of society in the wastelands of Texas, where the night life is still wild and amputation appears to be commonplace.

The Bad Batch was written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, who debuted with the critical favourite, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. The film was produced by Annapurna Pictures and Vice Media’s Danny Gabai and Sina Sayyah. It is being distributed by Tim League's Neon.

First Teaser Trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour's Dystopian 'The Bad Batch'

13 February 2017 6:08 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The chaos of this world is vast and unknowable. We'd like to think we can understand it. But we can't." Neon has debuted a teaser trailer for the new film from A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night director Ana Lily Amirpour, a dystopian cannibal western thriller titled The Bad Batch. The follow-up to her feature directorial debut follows a woman who drifts through a hostile desert wasteland overrun by cannibals. Suki Waterhouse stars, along with Jason Momoa, Yolonda Ross, Emily O'Brien, Alina Aliluykina, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna, Jim Carrey, plus the one-and-only Keanu Reeves. This premiered at film festivals last fall to mostly very negative reviews, from many people I trust. Jeremy wrote a review from Fantastic Fest saying that it "seems like something of a big step back" for the director. Take a look anyway. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ana Lily Amirpour's The Bad Batch, »

Trailer for Pa Cannibal Awesomeness The Bad Batch

13 February 2017 5:00 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

If you haven't seen director Ana Lily Amirpour's A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night it comes highly recommended. That said, who's up for steroids, cannibalism, and a desert post apocalyptic wasteland? It stars Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Diego Luna.. and let's throw Jim Carrey in there. You know something is going to be awesome when Ribisi is in it.

The Bad Batch follows Arlen (Suki Waterhouse) as she is unceremoniously dumped in a Texas wasteland fenced off from civilized society. While trying to orient her unforgiving environment, she is captured by a savage band of cannibals and quickly realizes she’ll have to fight her way through her new reality.

The Bad Batch Trailer: Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves And Suki Waterhouse Head For A Cannibal-Infested Wasteland

13 February 2017 3:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on three years since writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour made a splash with her feature film debut, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Pitched as the first “Iranian vampire spaghetti western,” Amirpour’s thriller was a genre oddball that went on to win a handful of prestigious awards, most notably the Revelations Prize at 2014’s Deauville Film Festival.

Not one to rest on her laurels, Amirpour is back, back, back with The Bad Batch, a “post-apocalyptic cannibal love story set in a Texas wasteland.” Proving that the filmmaker hasn’t lost her knack for genre oddballs, up above you’ll find the film’s truly wild first trailer, which jumps from romance to drama to full-blown cannibal horror all in the space of two minutes.

Amirpour, whose debut is regarded as the first (and, to date, only) Iranian vampire Western, appears to be back in genre-bending mode: “The Bad Batch” has been described as a post-apocalyptic melding of “Mad Max” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” Neon’s growing slate also includes the Anne Hathaway–starring “Colossal” and Eliza Hittman’s “Beach Rats,” which won a directing prize at Sundance.

13 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night was one of our favorite debuts of its respective year, an impeccably photographed vampire tale that brought new blood to the subgenre.  fter a fall festival premiere at Venice, followed by a stop at Tiff, Ana Lily Amirpour‘s follow-up The Bad Batch is now finally arriving this summer. With a cast featuring Jason MomoaJim CarreyKeanu ReevesSuki WaterhouseDiego Luna, and Giovanni Ribisi, distribution shifted to the newly minted Neon and now they’ve launched the wild first trailer for the dystopic cannibal western.

We said in our review, “Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken.

Ratings: SNL Hits 6-Year High in Early Numbers, Up 50% From a Year Ago

12 February 2017 8:59 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This weekend’s edition of Saturday Night Live, with 17-time host Alec Baldwin and returning scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy, scored its highest metered market rating — a 7.2 — since Jan. 8, 2011, when host Jim Carrey and musical guest The Black Keys delivered an 7.8 on the night of an NFL overrun.

Factoring out any such NFL-boosted outings, you’d have to go back to May 8, 2010 (when host Betty White/musical guest Jay-z teamed up for an 8.8) to find a higher metered market rating.

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Masters Of The Universe!!

10 February 2017 11:08 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We'd like to forget all about the last attempt at a live-action Masters of The Universe movie. Sorry, Dolph! Great hair, though.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends (Jeremy Scully and I, Mario-Francisco Robles) get together to cast/pitch our dream movies. 

In the past, we've tackled everything from The Batman to the Universal Monsters.

This week, we turn our attention towards the long-gestating cinematic reboot of Masters of The Universe. Jeremy and I grew up on the classic 80s cartoon, and I had a ton of the old action figures. Yet even we knew, as children, that the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren was crap. That's why we'd like to put our own spin on what the reboot should look/feel like.

Over the years, many filmmakers and various studios have tried and failed to get a Masters of The Universe movie off of the ground. »

Apparently, Coolio was going to play Scarecrow in the Batman & Robin sequel

10 February 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s legend now, but there was a time when Joel Schumacher was working on a follow-up to Batman & Robin, which was green-lit when Warner Bros. were ecstatic with the dailies that were coming back from its production. Since then we’ve heard many rumours about who was going to play certain roles, but a new story has come out today that has taken us all a bit by surprise.

According to rapper Coolio, who features in Batman & Robin as the leader of a motorcycle gang, he was supposed to play Scarecrow in the fifth movie, titled Batman Unchained.

“The only reason I did that part was because they promised me the villain part in the following Batman,” Coolio said in this interview (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Which they didn’t do because Joel Schumacher – they fired him. Me and him didn’t get along that great anyway… [In] the next »

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2017 10:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.  

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these »
