The Essential Vampire Films

16 October 2017 7:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In readiness for Halloween, Tom Jolliffe takes a look at the essential Vampire films…

With that thing coming up that takes place on the last day in October. You know the one? Yeah, candy sales go through the roof, your house gets egged and toilet papered. Meanwhile you sacrifice a chicken over a Ouji board in the hope of getting Kevin James to stop making films. It never works and you just unleash hell on Earth (or to put it another way, a new Kevin James film comes out). With that in mind, I thought it’d be a good time to look over the best Vampire films around.Why Vampires? Well I was watching a film (that will appear on this list) and had a brainwave.

So without further ado, and not in any particular order, here are the essential Vampire films!

Nosferatu (1922)

This iconic piece of cinema remains »

Tommy Lee Jones joins Casey Affleck in Stoner

15 October 2017 2:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was announced that Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea) is set to lead the cast of Joe Wright’s (Atonement) new film Stoner, based upon the acclaimed 1965 novel from John Williams, and now THR is reporting that Tommy Lee Jones (No Country for Old Men) has also signed on to the project.

The film will see Affleck as William Stoner, “a dirt-poor farmer turned academic who emerges as an unlikely existential hero while making his way through the first half of the 20th century.” As yet, there’s no word as to who Jones will be playing.

Jones is currently shooting James Gray’s sci-fi Ad Astra with Brad Pitt, and has the Iraq war drama Shock and Awe and the action comedy Just Getting Started incoming. Wright’s next film Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, is set to open in the U. »

DVD reviews: Fast and Furious 8; Churchill; A Man Called Ove; and more

15 October 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The fast-car franchise takes more corners than chances, while Brian Cox’s Winston is already overshadowed by Gary Oldman

You’d think, after 16 years, that the fast-cars-and-vast-biceps appeal of the Fast and Furious franchise would be sufficiently established to allow a few risks with the branding. But the UK distributors of its latest instalment are taking no chances. What was released Stateside as The Fate (or the F8?) of the Furious was served to us simply as Fast and Furious 8 (Universal, 12). That’s a shame, because the vague pun in the American title of this typically souped-up monster truck of a film is easily the smartest thing about it.

Other than that, it’s loudly banging business as usual for a series that has essentially become 007 with tank tops in place of tuxes. Give or take some inconsequential side-switching within the film’s comfortably established “family”, the franchise’s streak »

Limitations of the modern movie trailer

13 October 2017 6:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Oct 17, 2017

Film trailers have to be loud, aggressive and exciting. But what if the movie itself is neither?

Bwooommmm. Honk! Ratatatatat. A hushed voice: “You don’t know what’s coming”. Ominous silence. Bwoommmmm. Honk! Brahhmmm.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: how close were we to Josh Trank's Boba Fett film?

By now, the conventions of the modern movie trailer - all rapid-fire editing, loud whooshing and parping noises and ominous portent - have become as established as the oft-lampooned ones we used to get back in the 1980s. The ones that always began, “He was a man on the edge...”, or “In a world...", or a variant thereof.

In fact, trailers for mainstream movies are now so standardised and formulaic that Red Letter Media was able to put together an eight-minute video made of nothing but cliched shots from blockbuster movie promos, »

Denzel Back in the Oscar Race?

5 October 2017 3:23 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here.

After it was such a surprise late addition to the Tiff lineup, it wasn't much of a shock that Roman J Israel, Esq. got one of the more muted responses of the festival's big premieres. But the film is coming right around the corner and we can expect a much more attentive response for its release now that we have more time to actually get excited for it. And from the looks of the new trailer, it looks like we'll be getting more of peak Denzel Washington after a near miss with Oscar in Fences.

So can this film build on the momentum that Washington had last year? The Best Actor race is on the thin side, aside from incoming behemoth Gary Oldman, so some movie star goodwill can't hurt. Writer/director Dan Gilroy certainly gave us a complex sociopolitical male vehicle with Nightcrawler and this looks like another layered morality tale, »

Based on a True Story: Why So Many Biopics Create Oscar Buzz But Become Box-Office Flops

5 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall is the season of Real-People movies — the biopics that often fuel Oscar hopes. Recent weeks brought “The Battle of the Sexes,” “Stronger,” and “Victoria & Abdul” and there’s more than a dozen to come, including “Marshall,” “The Post,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Current War.” There’s good reason to believe that a biopic might produce awards. In the last five years, 28 of the 100 Oscar acting nominees played real-life characters, as did four of the 20 winners. But when it comes to the box office, the odds aren’t as kind.

Since 2012, there have been about 100 biopics including hits like “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” and “Julie and Julia.” But while recent years featured real-life characters and stories in some of the biggest non-franchise hits, the format may have reached a saturation point.

2 October 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Liza Chasin, president of the U.S. operations of U.K.-based Working Title, is departing the company after 26 years.

Working Title co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner made the announcement to staff in an email on Monday.

Chasin joined Working Title in 1991 as its director of development and was promoted to vice president of production and development. She became president of the company in 1996.

Her credits include Cate Blanchett’s “Elizabeth,” 2001’s “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” 2002’s “About a Boy,” “Les Miserables,” “The Danish Girl,” “Victoria & Abdul,” and Edgar Wright’s “At World’s End,” “Baby Driver,” and his upcoming “The Darkest Hour,” starring Gary Oldman.

Hollywood Contenders – A first crack at 2017 Golden Globe predictions

2 October 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Folks, we’ve reached a new point in the season. Now that we’re really getting into the heart of the fall months and pretty close to entering what is essentially the tail end of the 2017 movie release season, I wanted to take my first official crack this season at a set of Golden Globe predictions. In fact, I’d hoped to do this last week, but enough other news broke (plus the Blade Runner 2049 embargo lifting early) that it got delayed to these first days of October. As always, I’ll be mixing these in with Oscar predictions going forward, but early Globe picks are always of special interest to me, especially since sometimes you’re still guessing category placement and just what the tastes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will look like at the time. They’re almost impossible to accurately guess off the bat the first time around, »

The scope of this slice of wartime history is so small, it’s almost the movie equivalent of a one-man show. There are perhaps only a dozen speaking roles. Brian Cox is impressive as The Man Who Saved England in its Darkest Hour, but the drama reduces both the man and the historical crisis to trivial status, as little more than a personal emotional crisis: “Winston, the Haunted Imperialist.”



Cohen Media Group

2017 / Color / 2:39 widescreen / 105 min. / Street Date October 3, 2017 / 30.99

Starring: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, Ella Purnell, Julian Wadham, Richard Durden, James Purefoy.

Cinematography: David Higgs

Film Editor: Chris Gill

Original Music: Lorne Balfe

Written by Alex von Tunzelmann

Produced by Claudia Bluemhuber, Nick Taussig, Piers Tempest, Paul Van Carter

No, it isn’t Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill … that’s another movie, Darkest Hour. This is the Brian Cox Churchill movie.

‘Super Dark Times’: Watch the Unnerving Opening Sequence From Kevin Phillips’ Teen-Centric Psychological Thriller

29 September 2017 7:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

That title? It’s not kidding. In Kevin Phillips’ “Super Dark Times,” darkness settles over a small Hudson Valley town after a horrific accident forever alters the lives of a group of seemingly normal teens, including stars Owen Campbell and Charlie Tahan. A cross between “Stand By Me” and “Donnie Darko,” with plenty of “Stranger Things” evocations for good measure, it’s the kind of film that lovingly recreates the final wonders of childhood while hitting back with some horrific adult truths. High school, what a thing.

Per the film’s official synopsis, “Zach (Campbell) and Josh (Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, navigating first love and vying for popularity. When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes as their lives spiral into violence. »

‘Bill Nye: Science Guy’ Trailer: Everyone’s Favorite TV Scientist Takes Aim at Climate Change and Selfie Culture — Watch

If you’re a member of a certain segment of the American population (yes, okay, Millennials, Gen Y, and the like), it’s likely that any affection you have for science was at least partially spawned by Bill Nye, the self-professed “science guy.” For many years, Nye’s infectious excitement for science was piped into schoolrooms across the country, aiming to make big questions seem fun and relatable and applicable to the everyday.

Following yesterday’s poster [take a look here], two new trailers have now arrived online for director Joe Wright’s upcoming biographical drama Darkest Hour which stars Gary Oldman as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill; watch them below…

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, Darkest Hour is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which »
