Watch This: Much of Disclosure is dated, but its white-male paranoia sadly isn’t

7 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One week a month, Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by the week’s new releases or premieres. This week: Equity inspires a look back at other films set in the corporate world.

Disclosure (1994)

Corporate machinations. Sexual harassment. Virtual reality. CD-rom drives. Disclosure, based on the Michael Crichton novel of the same name, has aged into a glorious time capsule of the early ’90s, when political correctness experienced its first backlash, technology took a giant leap forward, and someone thought it was a good idea to give Dennis Miller a supporting role in a movie. They were heady times.

Newsweek

Not everyone was pleased. “White Male Paranoia” blared the March 29, 1993, cover of Newsweek, with the subhead “Are They the Newest Victims—Or Just Bad Sports?” The story, by David Gates, took its inspiration from a movie released the prior month. In Falling Down, Michael Douglas played a ...

Beauty vs Beast: Stuck In Mortville

25 July 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, saying howdy from a steamy-as-Hell Monday in New York. The heat reminds me that the Film Experience is celebrating 1977 this month -- 1977 in NYC was the "Summer of Sam," with heatwaves and black-outs and serial killing, oh my. We don't have it that bad, thank goodness. Anyway I just recently celebrated the Year of '77 on my own site with a Top 5 but there was one movie I hated leaving off, so let's take advantage of the opportunity with this week's "Beauty vs Beast."

John Waters' Desperate Living was released on May 27th 1977 - sandwiched as it is between Female Trouble (his masterpiece, says me) and Hairspray (his big mainstream hit) Desperate Living often gets overlooked, but it's High Trash Heaven thanks to its two leading ladies, John's manic & marvelous muses of manure...

Thailand International Film Destination Festival Brings Glamour With A Bit Of Confusion

25 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The Bangkok International Film Festival, which had attracted stars including Catherine Deneuve, Jeremy Irons, Michael Douglas and Oliver Stone, enjoyed its final year in 2009, before quietly disappearing and never being spoken about again in polite Thai circles, leaving behind only an abandoned website and various million-dollar corruption allegations. As a historical note, the Bkiff had evolved from a smaller festival, organised by the Nation newspaper, forcing the Nation festival organisers to change their festival name to the World Film Festival, Bangkok. That festival still exists, but seems unwilling to take on the full power of government funding which would enable it to attract the stars, but might also sacrifice its political freedom. So, instead we have the Thailand International Film Destination Festival, run by...

Stick Figures Getting Sick: Don Hertzfeldt’s "It’s Such a Beautiful Day"

25 July 2016 6:29 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“There’s a line in Tarkovsky’s Solaris: we never know when we’re going to die and because of that we are, at any given moment, immortal. So at this moment it feels pretty good, being where I’ve always longed to be, perched on the farthest edge of the western world. There’s a wild sunset brewing up over the Pacific. The water is glowing turquoise, the sky is turning crazy pink, the lights of the Santa Monica Ferris wheel are starting to pulse and spin in the twilight. Life is so interesting I’d like to stick around for ever, just to see what happens, how it all turns out.”—Geoff Dyer, London Review of Books“As wars will be fought, and great loves found.”—Narrator, It’s Such a Beautiful DayPsycholinguists call the opening gag of It’s Such a Beautiful Day (2012), Don Hertzfeldt’s delightful hour-long feature, »

The Best and Worst Movie Presidents

20 July 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The current political climate in the U.S. is, to put it nicely, insane. It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on. It doesn't matter who you're voting for. It doesn't even matter if you're eligible to vote. 2016 is simply a crazy, unpredictable year for politics. We could all use a bit of a break from the madness that is the current election cycle, and what better way than to escape into a movie?

Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso Revealed in Star Wars: Rogue One

16 July 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans were disappointed last night when the second Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer didn't debut on ABC during the Force Awakens behind-the-scenes documentary. Instead, they got the same sizzle reel from the Star Wars Celebration panel, although with a few new seconds of extra footage not shown overseas. To make up for it, today we have the first reveal of new Star Wars character Galen Erso, played by Mads Mikkelsen. The father of Jyn Erso, we have to yet see this character in any of the previous footage or images released thus far.

Mads Mikkelsen was on hand at yesterday's Rogue One panel, where he described his character as a scientist, and is said to have once created something 'so beautiful' for the entire galaxy. In this first look image, Galen doesn't appear to have seen the best of days, and is wearing a worn and dirty »

Shawn Levy Talks The "Starman" Remake

13 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back in 1982, John Carpenter's "The Thing" was released in cinemas and proved a bomb both critically and commercially - a surprise considering it is now often considered his greatest work in various critical polls. In the wake of that failure, he had to come up with something more commercially viable and appealing.

The result was "Starman," the acclaimed romantic sci-fi film starring Jeff Bridges as an alien who crashes on Earth and takes the form of the recently deceased husband of a widow (Karen Allen) in order to get her help to get back to his people.

Now a remake of the film is on the way at Sony Pictures with "Real Steel" and "Night at the Museum" director Shawn Levy at the helm. Levy, who helmed episodes of the new Netflix series "Stranger Things" which premieres on the streaming service on Friday, spoke with Coming Soon this week »

Flatliners Remake Brings Back Original Star Kiefer Sutherland

8 July 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, we reported that a reboot of the 1990 sci-fi thriller Flatliners is gearing up to start filming this summer, with Ellen Page, Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev attached to star. It was never clear if the filmmakers had planned on reaching out to original cast members such as Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon, but today we have word that Kiefer Sutherland is closing his deal to co-star in the rebooted thriller. The deal isn't finalized yet, but the actor has committed to the project.

The original film followed a group of medical students and close friends who conduct experiments with near death experiences. Each one of them has their heart stopped before being revived instantly, which causes them to experience nightmarish visions of their childhood, reflecting either sins they have committed, or sins committed against them. Their unorthodox extracurricular studies have very dark consequences, as their supernatural visions begin to intensify. »

Peyton Reed: Evangeline Lilly is not a supporting character in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

29 June 2016 4:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Evangeline Lilly should have been one of the founding members of The Avengers for Marvel's cinematic universe, but Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed is determined for her to get her superhero due. Modern Myth Media caught up with the director amidst the 42nd Annual Saturn Awards (Ant-Man won for Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture). Oddly enough, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the first McU film with a female character in the title since the inception of the McU almost ten years ago (Though they've been making snail's paced progress). As Stephen Colbert called it - a sausage fest. But Reed has had a lot of great stuff to say about Lilly and Wasp. He's spoken about the partnership of Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne before but went into it a bit more for Mmm: It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, »

Peyton Reed Talks Ant-man And The Wasp; Teases Comic Inspiration, Integrating 'The Wasp,' & Other Returning Faces

24 June 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ant-Man, after the gargantuan Avengers: Age of Ultron, was a nice change of pace for Marvel Studios as they closed the chapter on Phase 2 and started looking ahead to Phase 3. The Peyton Reed-directed film managed to garner a solid amount of critical acclaim and earned over $519 million worldwide on a modest budget of $130 million, which is coincidentally the smallest budget for any Marvel Studios film ever. Because of its success, the studio quickly announced plans for a sequel, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp, and inserted it in their Phase 3 line-up with a tentative release date of July 2018.  Since it's still a ways out, we understandably don't know much about the film's plot. What we do know, however, is that stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas will all be back reprising their roles from the first installment and that Reed is returning to direct with a script he's currently penning alongside Rudd, »

Sony’s Starman remake will have a younger cast than the original and a contemporary setting confirms director Shawn Levy

The news broke this April that a remake of John Carpenter’s 1984 sci-fi Starman is currently being worked up at Sony. Real Steel and Night At The Museum’s Shawn Levy is to direct and produce, joined by original producer Michael Douglas and Grace Of Monaco screenwriter Arash Amel on scripting duties.

While chatting to Levy about terrific new Netflix series Stranger Things, he gave us an update on Starman’s progress and confirmed that the new film will indeed have a contemporary setting:

Starman is halfway through being written. It is fucking cool and very much the story of the original but leans into the technology and the scientific awareness that we have now, which is radically different than what we had when John Carpenter made the original film. »
