2013 film preview: Tarantino tackles slavery and Star Trek goes Into Darkness

30 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

And with new movies from Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Neill Blomkamp and Steve McQueen, the new year is looking like a great one for film

Django Unchained

(Director Quentin Tarantino)

Tarantino is back on top form with this delirious revenge western set in 1858, with Jamie Foxx as Django, a freed slave on a mission to release his wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), from the clutches of evil slavemaster Calvin Candie. Not only is Candie lipsmackingly played by Leonardo DiCaprio, he also has a sinister servant called Stephen – a superb performance by Samuel L Jackson. Outrageously enjoyable. 18 January.

What Richard Did

(Director Lenny Abrahamson)

The gifted Irish director who gave us Adam & Paul and Garage returns with a film about Ireland's young and rich. Richard (Jack Reynor) is a schoolboy rugby star who has grown accustomed to being wealthy and successful. He sets his sights on a young woman, wins her away from her boyfriend, »

What to expect in 2013

28 December 2012 4:03 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Winona Ryder is back, as are sequels and threequels, and a star is porn

Charlie Kaufman will return (with a cartoon)

Although Kaufman's second directorial film, Frank Or Francis, seems to be mired in development purgatory, this May we'll get to see his hour-long stop-motion animation Anomalisa. Exec-produced by Community creator Dan Harmon, it was funded by Kickstarter: 5,770 backers pledged over $400,000 and, depending on how much they donated, they will be rewarded with everything from screen credits to nights out drinking with the crew.

Diablo Cody is going to have a good year

While a remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 horror The Evil Dead may seem like a perfectly pointless exercise, the fact that Sam Raimi co-wrote the new script himself and then hired confirmed horror fan Diablo Cody to rework it is reason for optimism. After this year's brilliant Young Adult was underseen and overlooked, 2013 should be kinder to Cody, »

The films of Roman Polanski

28 December 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A world of cruelty, where men are cold-blooded and women cold-hearted … The BFI begins a Roman Polanski retrospective – with extended runs of Repulsion and Chinatown – that showcases the director's fascinating pathology

Any hopes that the BFI's forthcoming retrospective – its second in less than a decade – will turn attention away from the glum key terms of Roman Polanski's life (the Kraków ghetto, Manson, statutory rape) back to the riches of his work are based on false reasoning and certain to be dashed. To watch Polanski's films is to be reminded of what produced their dazed brutality, those early experiences of the oppression of the weak that stole his innocence and distorted his sense of things. If ever there was a body of work on intimate terms with cruelty and domination, and steeped in a vision of men as cold-blooded and women as cold-hearted, this is it.

When, in Polanski's first film, »

First Look Image: Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

27 December 2012 1:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following on from District 9, one of the most awesome directorial debuts in recent memory, Neill Blomkamp returns behind the camera to bring us the highly anticipated Elysium next year.

With an all-star cast, led by Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and Sharlto Copley, there’s definitely a lot to look forward to.

We caught a brilliant first look at Damon back in the summer, followed by a great new image last month, and now Empire have treated us to our first look at Copley.

“In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy “Coordinators,” people who can afford bio-genetical engineering, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, built by the Armadyne Corporation, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a hard government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. »

First Look at Sharlto Copley in Elysium and New Star Trek Into Darkness Images

26 December 2012 8:08 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

A trio of sci-fi movie goodness for you this post-Christmas Day. The first features our first look at Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp’s latest sci-fi-as-allegory flick “Elysium”, this time taking on the whole “the 1% have everything, while the 99% have nothing” angle. Having read the script, this thing is like getting hit in the face with a sledgehammer. It is not exactly subtle stuff. Here’s Copley playing the film’s villain, an evil looking fellow by the name of Kruger. Matt Damon, of course, stars as our oppressed hero. Also starring Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Michael Shanks, Diego Luna, Alice Braga, Faran Tahir, Carly Pope, Talisa Soto, Ona Grauer, and Terry Chen, “Elysium” arrives August 9, 2013. Meanwhile, here are four new looks at the main men of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness”, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pine as Empire Magazine’s latest cover boys and a new pic »

First Look at Sharlto Copley in ‘Elysium’

26 December 2012 8:05 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

After wowing us with District 9 in 2009, writer/director Neil Blomkamp is set to do it again (hopefully) in 2013 with Elysium. Sharlto Copley, who starred as the hero in District 9, is playing the heavy this time around. Here’s the first look at his character, Kruger.

Elysium is set in the year 2159, and pits the oppressed people of the ruined planet Earth against the privileged elite aboard the Elysium space station. Matt Damon is ex-convict man-on-a-mission Max, fighting with the Terrans for equality, and Jodie Foster is the dastardly government official intent on enforcing anti-immigration laws and keeping Elysium for the Elysians; Kruger is her relentless attack dog.”

Elysium hits theatres August 9, 2013.

First Look: Sharlto Copley As the Villain in Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’

26 December 2012 6:18 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

2013 is going to be an impressive year for original science-fiction entertainment and District 9 writer-director Neil Blomkamp’s Elysium ranks high on the list of upcoming anticipated futuristic blockbusters.

Blomkamp’s sophomore feature-length helming effort takes place in 2159, where society is split between the Terrans (who dwell on a devastated, post-apocalyptic Earth) and Elysians, who reside in the space station Elysium orbiting the planet. Matt Damon stars as ex-convict Max, a dying Terran who undertakes a dangerous mission to save his life (and maybe unite the separate classes); meanwhile, Jodie Foster plays Secretary Rhodes, a shrewd government crony intent on upholding the current social order.

District 9 star Sharlto Copley appears in Elysium as (nasty) Kruger, who Empire describes as Rhodes’ “relentless attack dog.” The former previously (inadvertently) likened his performance in ...

Neill Blomkamp’s Upcoming ‘Elysium’ Offers a First Look at Sharlto Copley’s Bad Guy with Bluetooth Implants

24 December 2012 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

One of the more anticipated films hitting theaters next year is Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium. The sci-fi epic is the director’s long-awaited (well, since 2009 anyway) follow-up to his breakout hit District 9, and it follows a similar path melding action, science fiction and social commentary. It stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Diego Luna, Talisa Soto and Sharlto Copley. He played the hero in District 9, but Copley’s turn here is of a far darker flavor. Empire Online has just debuted the first glimpse above of Copley in full bad guy gear, and he’s nigh unrecognizable. Elysium is set in the year 2159, and pits the oppressed people of the ruined planet Earth against the privileged elite aboard the Elysium space station. Matt Damon is ex-convict man-on-a-mission Max, fighting with the Terrans for equality, and Jodie Foster is the dastardly government official intent on enforcing anti-immigration laws and keeping Elysium for the Elysians; Kruger »

Sharlto Copley burst onto the scene in Neill Blomkamp's District 9 and afterward was cast in Joe Carnahan's The A-Team and will soon be seen in Sebastian Cordero's Europa Report, Spike Lee's Oldboy and opposite Angelina Jolie in Maleficent.

First Badass Look at Sharlto Copley in Elysium

24 December 2012 10:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's your first look at District 9 star Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp's new amazing looking sci-fi film Elysium. Copley plays the villain in the story named Kruger, and he sure looks like an insane badass! There's been very little of this movie released online, but they showed a some great unfinished footage of it at Comic-Con. Hopefully the release a trailer for the film sometime in the near future! In a previous interview Copley compared his character to The Joker, but in a recent interview with Empire, he says it was a mistaken reference and explains his character a little more...

The Joker was a mistaken reference. I was really just saying that that was the last time I saw a villain that inspired me: somebody that set the bar. There’s no connection or likeness to The Joker in terms of the character. What I did with »

Elysium Image Gives Us Better Look At Sharlto Copley's Villain

24 December 2012 9:59 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With all of the recent Star Trek speculation (as well as ongoing conversations about the future of the Star Wars saga, as well), it.s easy to overlook that another highly-anticipated science-fiction drama is barreling towards theaters in Neill Blomkamp.s Elysium, his follow-up to the heralded District 9 that will star Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. Neither of those two heavy-hitting talents are showcased in a new Elysium image posted in Empire magazine (and grabbed by ComingSoon), but we do get an up-close, intense shot of District 9 hero Sharlto Copley. His character.s name is Kruger. He appears to have something mechanical happening with his face. And he.s going to make Damon.s life very difficult: We reported on Sony.s Elysium panel back at San Diego Comic-Con, noting that Copley.s character was a scene-stealing bad-ass. His task is to hunt down Damon.s character, who »

We can’t wait to check out Elyisum, the latest film from District 9‘s Neill Blomkamp. While originally scheduled for release early in 2013, the movie got moved back to a more competitive summer release spot. We’ll have a little bit of a wait until we get a really good look at the movie, but the first photo of Sharlto Copley as the film’s villain was just released.

First Look at Sharlto Copley as the Villain Kruger in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

24 December 2012 9:39 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While news is going to be slow over the next few days, thanks to Empire Magazine, we have something cool to post: the first look at Sharlto Copley as the villain Kruger in Neill Blomkamp's Elysium.  The film is set in 2159, and two classes of people are divided: the wealthy live on a man-made space station called Elysium, while the rest of the humans inhabit an overpopulated and ruined Earth.  Elysium was on track for a March 2013 release, but then the movie was pushed back to August 2013, which is the same weekend Blomkamp’s District 9 was released in 2009.  While Sony has yet to release a trailer for Elysium, I'd imagine we're going to see one very soon.  The film also stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Diego Luna, Alice Braga, and Wagner Moura.  Hit the jump for the full image and you can watch my comic-con video interviews with »

Elysium Photo Reveals Sharlto Copley as the Villain Kruger

24 December 2012 9:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we showed you a new photo from Elysium, featuring Matt Damon as Max, an ex-convict fighting for equality in a world where elite citizens live on a space station known as Elysium. Today, a new photo has surfaced from director Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi thriller, offering our first look at Sharlto Copley as the villainous Kruger. The character is the right-hand man of Jodie Foster's Secretary Rhodes, a nefarious government official who wants to keep Elysium segregated from the rest of the oppressed population on Earth. Take a look at the photo, then read on to see what Sharlto Copley had to say about his character.

There were reports swirling this past summer that the District 9 actor was possibly channeling Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight, as a reference for his character. The actor revealed that quote was taken out of context, »

First Photo Of Sharlto Copley In Elysium

24 December 2012 9:05 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Here’s the first image of Sharlto Copley as the villainous Kruger in Elysium, the sophomore feature film directed by South African sensation Neil Blomkamp and starring possible senatorial candidate Matt Damon.

Copley delivered an outstanding performance as Wikus in Blomkamp’s directorial debut smash District 9 and today Empire published the first look at his Kruger character.

The film is telling the story of an ex-con (Damon) fighting for equality between the earth bound lower classes and the wealthy elite who live aboard the Elysium space station governed by Secretary Rhodes (Jodi Foster).

Copley who plays Foster’s ‘attack dog’ seems to be wearing an exoskeletal device of some sort that Damon had in the first and second images from the film.

Co-starring Diego Luna, William Fichtner and more, Elysium is scheduled to hit theaters on August 9th, 2013.

Sharlto Copley Looks Vicious & Robotic In New ‘Eylsium’ Still

24 December 2012 7:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If there is one film that certainly feels like it’s taking an eternity to arrive, it’s Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium – and we’ve still got 8 months to go! An age has passed since the project was first announced, with a ‘drip…drip…drip’ of information and promotional material. The director of District 9, for me, is a mix already of intriguing and frustrating.Then again, it is refreshing to see an exciting project not being constantly thrown in your face.

The futuristic science-fiction thriller set in the year 2159 sees Matt Damon headline as a man who takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station, while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. The film will also reunite Blomkamp and his brilliant District 9 lead Sharlto Copley and here is the first »
