How Eli Roth Is Fostering the Next Generation of Indie Horror Directors

24 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eli Roth is having a very good week. On Monday, the horror writer-director-producer officially signed on to direct the remake of the 1974 vigilante action film “Death Wish,” with Bruce Willis attached to star. Then on Tuesday, Roth landed a horror directing gig for the adaptation of the “Aleister Arcane” comic book, starring Jim Carrey in the lead role. As if that wasn’t enough, on Wednesday, the Jon Watts horror film “Clown” that Roth produced hit #1 on iTunes’s horror section. The film opened in theaters on June 17.

The story of a loving father who dresses up as a clown for his son’s birthday — only to find the suit is cursed and won’t come off — “Clown” famously started as a fake movie trailer Watts posted on YouTube that said “From master of horror Eli Roth” even though Roth had nothing to do with the project. He was so impressed with the trailer, »

Exclusive Interview with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez interview

Movie director Robert Rodriguez is one of our favourites. His resume includes DesperadoSin City, The FacultySpy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Planet Terror and Machete, and eclectic range of genre films that all hit the right spot.

Rodriguez is somewhat of a maverick film director. He’s not one to play by the expected rules of the movie world, be that in what he puts on the screen or how he interacts with his peers. During his career he has left both the screen writers and directors guild in favour of blazing his own path. His latest venture has been to create his own television network ‘El Rey’ which caters to a Latin American audience.

He used the platform to bring back a project from his past From Dusk Till Dawn; the film starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as brothers and criminal Seth and Richard Gecko. »

Real-Life Bears and Advice From Tarantino: 7 Of The Craziest Stories From Behind The Scenes Of ‘Swiss Army Man’

21 June 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Swiss Army Man” opens in limited release this Friday and nationwide on July 1. You’ve likely heard a lot about the film already, from the walkouts at its first Sundance screening all the way to star Daniel Radcliffe touring NYC with his stunt dummy.

Yet in a month of poorly reviewed sequels, “Swiss Army Man” stands alone as a full, pure, emotional experience. The film’s co-directors, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, combine a sense of absurdity and seemingly low-hanging-fruit fart jokes with pathos and soul. They have created a new, magical thing.

This week, IndieWire’s deputy editor and chief critic Eric Kohn sat down with the Daniels, as they liked to be called, at a panel at New York City’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center. Showing the audience clips from the film and their previous music videos, the Daniels talked about the collision of self-awareness and genuine »

5 Must-See Films At The 2016 New York Asian Film Festival

21 June 2016 10:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If it’s late June in Manhattan, it must be time for the city’s annual dose of martial-arts madness, indescribably twisted revenge stories, and go-for-broke dramas about sexually liberated high school girls. A collaboration between Subway Cinema and The Film Society of Lincoln Center, the New York Asian Film Festival has established itself as one of the summer’s most vital (and occasionally traumatizing) annual events, a celebration of the best and most bonkers in classic and contemporary Asian cinema. Even in an age of VOD and streaming, many — or most — of these gems never receive American distribution, making the fest that much more valuable to local cinephiles.

Running from June 22 thru July 9, the 2016 edition promises to live up to the Nyaff legend, as iconic films like “All About Lily Chou-Chou” and “Tetsuo: The Iron Man” will be screened alongside a smorgasbord of new stuff that’s just waiting to be discovered. »

More 'Hit-Girl' On The Big Screen ?

21 June 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Director Matthew Vaughn continues to develop a prequel to "Kick-Ass", showcasing the origins of 'Big Daddy' and 'Hit-Girl':

"We're working on an idea for a prequel of how did 'Hit-Girl' and 'Big Daddy' become Hit- Girl and Big Daddy," said Vaughn.

"If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn't like 'Kick-Ass 2' and then we can go off and make 'Kick-Ass 3."

"I think we've got to do this prequel to regain the love that we had with Kick-Ass..."

Meanwhile "Kick-Ass" creator Mark Millar has confirmed there will eventually be a third "Kick-Ass" movie to complete the trilogy.

The first "Kick-Ass" feature released in 2010 on a budget of $30 million, earned $100 million world-wide, then sold over 1 million DVDs, scoring an additional $24 million. "Kick-Ass 2" on a budget of $28 million, released in 2013, earned $63 million world-wide plus an additional $15 million in DVD sales.

Although the numbers were not blockbuster, »

Film Review: 'The Neon Demon'

21 June 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The opening minutes of the Cannes competitor The Neon Demon try but fail to fully warn you about what’s in store.  The music is suspenseful and electric, almost as if neon had been transformed into a sound.  The colors are dazzling and deliberate, signaling the beautifully shot experience that awaits.  And, in the first scene, a dazzling Elle Fanning lies on a sofa with her throat slit and piles of blood pouring down.  It’s a staged photo shoot, but this combination of tingling lighting and what’s-going-to-happen horror is the best way I can think of summing the whole thing up.  And then some.

Directed by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn (who also helmed the critically adored Drive and Only God Forgives), The Neon Demon, while mostly thin on plot, is nonetheless a masterpiece.  At least for its first 100 minutes.  The premise is simple: Jesse, a young aspiring »

‘Murder à la Mod’: Brian De Palma’s Induction as a Significant Cinematic Voice

20 June 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Debut features are often some of the most interesting cases one comes across when undertaking the deep-dive of an auteur’s filmography. Oftentimes, signature aesthetic tics are nascent, not developed, and these premiere outings are less than fully formed visions. However, there are plenty of impressive first films that present a filmmaker’s particular fixations as more or less formulated, a clear direction leading to the later canonical landmarks. Such is the case with Brian De Palma’s Murder à la Mod, which bares the thrillmeister’s genre proclivities in full view. Although Murder is technically the second film De Palma made, it was the first to get released, as 1963’s The Wedding Party wasn’t distributed until six years after its production. (It also stands as the man’s first solo feature effort.) Indeed, Murder à la Mod is less aligned with De Palma’s pre-Sisters satires than the »

Catherine Deneuve to Receive the 2016 Lumière Award

20 June 2016 3:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Legendary French actress Catherine Deneuve will receive the 8th Lumière Award at France’s 2016 Lumière Grand Lyon Film Festival, a unique event which focuses near totally on film classics.

Clint Eastwood, Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodovar and Martin Scorsese figure among past recipients of the Lumière Award. They all travelled to Lyon to pick up the award, granted by Lyon’s Institut Lumière, run by French director Bertrand Tavernier and Cannes head Thierry Fremaux.

“This year’s Lumière Award goes to Catherine Deneuve for what she is, has done, says, acts, sings and delights from time immemorial and forever,” the Institut Lumière said Monday in a press statement.

“The face of French cinema,” according to Scorsese, Deneuve’s career is remarkable for its longevity, great films, the directors she has worked with, and the contrasting facets of a figure which confounds easy categorisation.

Deneuve began making films before France’s Nouvelle Vague, »

Preacher Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Monster Swamp

20 June 2016 2:42 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It all starts with one.

Jesse might not be able to save all his congregation at once, but he makes one significant breakthrough on Preacher Season 1 Episode 4 that surprises everyone.

Watch Preacher Season 1 Episode 4 Online

Odin Quincannon is not the type of guy you'd think would serve anyone other than himself. And, he certainly had no intention of "serving God" like Jesse wanted him to.

The only thing Quincannon wanted was the land Jesse offered him if he came to church. But, the most powerful man in Annville got a lot more when the entity took over, and Quincannon basically gave himself up to God.

It's going to be odd seeing how this story plays out. 

This is a guy who peed in the mayor's briefcase to let him know what he thought about a partnership with a soil sustainability company, and showed absolutely no emotion after a girl died »

Movie Review – The Antwerp Dolls (2016)

19 June 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Antwerp Dolls, 2016.

Directed by Jake L. Reid.

Starring Jason Wing, Courtney Winston, Sean Cronin, Sebastian Foucan and Bruce Payne.

Synopsis:

A ruthless businessman’s payoff to the Belgian mafia is intercepted by his revenge-seeking former protegees, launching a deadly war of violence and double-dealing…

Another peculiar sub-genre of recent years appears to have been the Cockney gangster movie, and The Antwerp Dolls is another aborted love child of the stylish, profane swagger of Guy Ritchie and uber-violent crime stylistics of Quentin Tarantino. Low budget, low brow and barely with any redeeming features, the directorial debut of Jake L. Reid should be forgotten with far quieter grace than how loudly it proclaims itself throughout the relatively thin running time, which by the way feels twice the length. All the way through, you really get the feeling this is cinema made for the kind of mindless thugs causing carnage across France »

Quentin Tarantino Gives Stirring Speech On Film & Culture After Receiving AFI Honorary Degree — Watch

18 June 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino, along with Rita Moreno, accepted honorary Doctorate of Fine Art degrees from the American Film Institute on June 16. 

The “Pulp Fiction” helmer took the stage at the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood to share some inspiring words with the 116 students who also graduated that same day, advocating that they contribute to society in a bigger way.

“I’m challenging you and imploring you to do your best,” Tarantino said. “And I think your best is to be part of the conversation, part of the artistic conversation.”

The distinguished helmer continued by telling them that when they go on to create something, whether it be in film television or multimedia, they should touch topics of race, culture, the world and politics.

“Nothing will make me happier,” he added. “And in eight years from now, 15 years from now, »

The Smallest Show On Earth: In Memory Of The Bijou (1957) And The Alger (1940-2015)

18 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The delightful British comedy The Smallest Show on Earth headlines a great Saturday matinee offering from the UCLA Film and Television Archive on June 25 as their excellent series “Marquee Movies: Movies on Moviegoing” wraps up. So it seemed like a perfect time to resurrect my review of the movie, which celebrates the collective experience of seeing cinema in a darkened, and in this case dilapidated old auditorium, alongside my appreciation of my own hometown movie house, the Alger, which opened in 1940 and closed last year, one more victim of economics and the move toward digital distribution and exhibition.

“You mean to tell me my uncle actually charged people to go in there? And people actually paid?” –Matt Spenser (Bill Travers) upon first seeing the condition of the Bijou Kinema, in The Smallest Show on Earth

“When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.” So ends John Ford’s “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” the last masterpiece of Ford’s in a career full of them. Quentin Tarantino, no slouch in his unadorned love for the western genre and Ford, took that saying to heart when he made 2009’s “Inglourious Basterds,” which […]

Suicide Squad Soundtrack Art and Song List Revealed

17 June 2016 8:49 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past couple of days, there has been a spat of fake Suicide Squad soundtrack listings making the rounds, for whatever reason. But to counter this, Amazon has actually updated their site with pre-sale information. And they've announced the confirmed song list. The hard rocking line-up is headlined by some usual suspect, including Skrillex, Lil' Wayne, Eminem and Twenty One Pilots. We also get a look at the cover art.

When it comes to choosing his music for any given project, David Ayer has been as meticulous as Quentin Tarantino. And it was said in the past that some of the older songs included in the movie are quite important to the plot in the same way that Star-Lord's Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 1 was to Guardians of the Galaxy. Though the two records have a decidedly different flavor. This one looks to be a bit on the heavier side. »

Hey Toronto! It's Time to Get Your De Palma Voyeurism Fix

Over the course of what promises to be a long, hot, sticky summer, what better way to escape the streets and enter the sleazy, dreamy, violently dark ouvre of Brian De Palma. With the release of Jake Paltrow & Noah Baumbach's wonderful documentary interview, De Palma, getting released in Toronto this Friday, and the start of the summer programming at Tiff Lightbox, the festival's year round house of cinema is offering a near-complete retrospective of the works of the love-him/loath-him king of homage.   Famously back by Pauline Kael, and currently revered by Quentin Tarantino, De Palma is a disciple of not only Hitchcock which can be easily seen in most of De Palma's work, but also of classic film theory, from Sergei Eisenstein (his...
