The Criterion Collection has announced its batch of new releases for September, and we're particularly excited for this set: A new issue of The Seventh Art is now online, meaning there's a few great video interviews (Paul Schrader, Margarethe von Trotta, Barbara Hammer) well worth your time to watch. Steven Spielberg & George Lucas are predicting that the film industry will implode.
Above: Writing for the Independent Cinema Office, our own Adrian Curry takes a look at "The Aesthetics of Film Festival Posters" Above: via Revista Lumière's Facebook page, a photo of Jean-Luc Godard being arrested during May '68 in Paris. Via David Hudson and The Keyframe Daily, Daniel Ludwig has some insight from the set of Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage:

Exclusive: Jonah Hill has taken on management. He has signed with Lbi Entertainment, where he will be repped by a team headed by Ian Montone and Rick Yorn. They will rep him in all areas, along with Wme and attorney Karl Austen. Hill continues to surprise as he evolves from the fro-headed kid in Superbad to a lead in ribald stoner comedies like This Is The End, to serious roles like his Oscar nominated turn in Moneyball, and the upcoming Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf Of Wall Street. In the Rupert Gould-directed Plan B-produced True Story, Hill next plays disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, who was sacked just as a suspected killer on the FBI’s Most Wanted List who was using his name got caught, and would only talk to the journo at a time his life was crashing down around him. James Franco plays the killer. »

Cinema has always had an obsession with cops, and probably always will. Famous and iconic directors such as Martin Scorsese, Akira Kurosawa, William Friedkin and Sidney Lumet have all made movies focusing on the profession and the people involved in it. Cops are ever involved in drama on various scales, and their job has to be done with a right balance of emotion and ruthlessness and their days at work feature a more than average level of emotion. Corrupt cops are also a permanent staple of cinema as everyone loves an anti-hero/villain, but this list is for the cops on the (relatively) straight and narrow.
Few professions have been detailed as intrinsically and often as that of a cop. The life of a cop is often glamourised extensively in the movies with gun fights and car chases being common occurrences in cop movies, though most cops go their whole »

The fabulous trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street dropped this week and reminded us all exactly how great Kanye West's tracks can mesh with movie trailers. Since 2005's Jarhead, Kanye's tracks have been populating trailers - for better or worse - and inspired by Kanye's latest trailer appearance, I'm looking at all his songs in previews. Watch along with each trailer, including three releases from this year alone! View Slideshow › »

Don’t Torture A Duckling is one of the most intricately woven, original giallo films ever made, and definitely one of my favorite Italian giallo films of all time. Numerous interviews credit Don’t Torture A Duckling (1972) as Lucio Fulci’s personal favorite, and it firmly established him as a major talent in the suspense genre in Italy. Don’t Torture A Duckling never saw a theatrical release in North America in the 1970s, and the film wasn’t released on VHS until 1999 when it was released in both VHS and DVD format by Anchor Bay Entertainment. Even though the time of VHS had come and gone by 1999, Anchor Bay released the film on VHS to appease horror video fans like myself. Blue Underground released the same version of the film again in 2007, but only on DVD and Blu-Ray. Currently, you can buy Don’t Torture A Duckling on VHS »

Louis Leterrier’s Now You See Me is currently open in the Us, and opens in the UK on July 3rd. It stars Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson as a team of magicians that perform in Las Vegas, wowing audiences whilst simultaneously robbing banks, sharing the proceeds with their audience. Whilst there have been numerous movies about witches, wizards and other fantasy magicians, there have been surprisingly few set around theatrical magicians.
Now You See Me isn’t the year’s first, though. Oz: The Great and Powerful featured Oz as a shady stage magician who had to use these skills to defeat an evil witch. There was more stage magic in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, a comedy telling the story of a duo of performing magicians who have a falling out. Whilst originally the tricks involved were going to be outrageous, impossible stunts, in the end David Copperfield »

British actor, musician, Maxton Gig “Max” Beesley, Jr’s destiny as an actor was firmly set when his mom was inspired by American, Academy Award® winning actor Gig Young, in choosing her son’s middle name. Beesley, born and raised in his beloved Manchester, England, was raised in a family steeped in the arts. His father, Max Beesley, Sr. is a venerable jazz drummer and impressionist, and his mother Chris Marlowe was a jazz singer. His step-brother Jason Milligan is also an actor and Jason’s wife Angela Griffin is an actress.
At first, American audiences may not easily recognize Max Beesley’s name, but in fact, many are far more familiar with his esteemed CV of work, which includes numerous acclaimed acting roles in many stellar films, TV series, and also a supreme music career, than they realize.
Beesley has garnered considerable praise and is »

"I lived what I called 'Lifestyles of the Rich and Dysfunctional.' Which consisted of a massive drug addiction, not being faithful to my wife, cutting hundred million-dollar deals routinely, but not really having an ethical underpinning to the whole thing because it was just about making money. So I guess on some level you can say I was the world's most successful failure." -- Jordan Belfort Much is already being said about the fantastic first trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, which is based on the very real story of Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker who in the 1990s used millions upon millions of dollars to manipulate the stock market and run a "boiler room" that employed over 1,000 stockbrokers. Prior to The Wolf of Wall...

The trailer for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street," starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill among others, sent a shock wave last night when it finally dropped. Set to the pulse of Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" (releasing tomorrow as part of the rapper's already-leaked sixth studio album, "Yeezus"), it announced a whole new shade for the filmmaker that has brought us delicious bite in a wide array of films, from "Taxi Driver" to "Goodfellas" to "The Departed." Will this take on capitalism's great shame, coming at just the right time, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those classics? Time will tell. Will »

Leonardo DiCaprio's 2013 seems to be full of rich men doing wild things. Fresh off his turn in "The Great Gatsby," the actor's tackling another era full of outrageously rich behavior in "The Wolf of Wall Street."
In the new film, directed by Martin Scorsese, DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a real-life, and hard-partying, stockbroker who -- alongside fellow brokers played by Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill -- lived the high life in the '80s and '90s: avoiding the feds on yachts, taping money to women's bodies, throwing wild parties in the office. (That avoiding the feds thing? Spoiler alert: Belfort spent 20 months in prison for market manipulation.)

We haven't seen an edgy Martin Scorsese film since The Departed 2006, but all that's about the change with his new movie, The Wolf Of Wall Street starring his muse Leonardo DiCaprio. Take a look at the wacky preview of crooked Wall Street honchos.
Martin Scorsese has been pretty tame in his latest movies such as Hugo and Shutter Island, but with The Wolf Of Wall Street, Scorsese returns to quirky characters and wild scenarios. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Jean Dujardin, Matthew McConaughey, Rob Reiner, Kyle Chandler, Jon Favreu, Margot Robbie and Spike Jonze star in the film about a wealthy New York stockbroker, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, who refuses to cooperate with the FBI in a securities fraud case on Wall Street. And in Martin Scorsese fashion, the mob is involved.
Matthew McConaughey is a hoot in the

Today's 2014 Oscar predictions update to the Best Supporting Actor charts has also caused movement in the Best Actor charts as three of my Best Actor contenders are no more, two moving over to Best Supporting Actor and one looks like it's going to be a 2014 release. I have removed Michael Pena from the Best Actor charts because word is Diego Luna's Chavez may be looking at a late January 2014 release, timed to coincide with the late Hugo Chavez's birthday. This isn't to say an Oscar-qualifying run couldn't take place, but with the news circling, for the time being I've taken Pena out of contention. Additionally, I've heard Tom Hanks' role in Saving Mr. Banks is tiny and definitely not a lead performance so he's been moved over to the Supporting charts, which actually works in his favor given he's far more likely to stand a better chance for »

"Is all this legal? Absolutely not"
A first trailer has been released for Martin Scorsese's new movie, The Wolf of Wall Street, based on ambitious stockbroker Jordan Belfort's memoir of the same name. The billionaire's lavish lifestyle soon turned upside down when he was caught in the middle of a securities fraud, but this first look is definitely more about the dollars. Beginning with "The year I turned 26, I made $49 million," we get a glimpse of what "more money than I know what to do with" entails as green bills fly left, right, and center, along with a whole lot of other crazy: Strippers wearing money, walking chimpanzees, a flying dwarf, and, Matthew McConaughey, channeling Christopher Walken, treating us to a surprisingly endearing dinner tune.

Thanks to the massive recession that's been happening in the last few years, one of the more popular villainous tropes out there is that of the evil wallstreet banker. That's nothing new, of course, I think we all remember Gordon "Greed Is Good" Gekko from Wall Street back in the 80s. But after seeing how they made life suck for everyone else in the country, greedy investors are seen as a social hazard. Now, a new film from Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese looks to capitalize on that. »
