King Arthur wants to be cool but is he?

26 July 2016 6:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. Ah, Camelot! A time for GoPro cameras and quick cut editing, when hip meta storytelling was in vogue and well timed sarcasm was the bantering style of the day. Guy Ritchie has brought his trendy brand of filmmaking to the King Arthur legend. Ugh.  Sometimes you have to let a thing be a thing. Hold on. Record scratch. Let's me explain that. (I can do to this too, Guy Ritchie!) Take Captain America. Not a cool character, but so what? It was writer Mark Waid's comic book run that sold me on him. What I enjoyed was that Mark Waid didn't try to make the character something that he wasn't. He didn't make Captain America talk like a Quentin Tarantino character. He didn't shim sham us with non-linear storytelling tricks. »

‘Let Me Make You A Martyr’ Shows Flashes Of Promise In An Otherwise Aimless Thriller [Review]

26 July 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Troy Duffy were to make a Southern gothic crime drama influenced by Quentin Tarantino and David Gordon Green, the results would veer close to “Let Me Make You A Martyr.” The film, making its World Premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival, is the sometimes ambitious, if mostly aimless, directorial debut of Corey Asraf and […]

Listen: Full-Length ‘Pulp Fiction’ Commentary Delves Into Tarantino’s Storytelling and Style

25 July 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Many DVDs and Blu-rays have commentaries attached — with writers, directors, actors, make-up artists, etc. — that give you insider information on the work. They provide funny anecdotes, tell you how that crazy pan that turns into a track-and-follow shot was conceived, and why Actor A is wearing that weird hat in your favorite scene. Jokes aside, they are often fascinating insights into a production, letting you go behind the curtain of a set and experiencing the film in a new light. Generally, however, no one on a film’s own commentary delves into their film’s structure, writing, and methods of building written tension, as most filmmakers just don’t pat themselves on the back like that. That is what’s so intriguing about Darren from Must See Films‘ full-length commentary for Quentin Tarantino‘s seminal, ’90s-defining classic Pulp Fiction: he is staring critically (albeit lovingly) at the work while he watches. »

Lionsgate shocks the horror world and reveals a finished 'Blair Witch' sequel at Comic-Con

23 July 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You sneaky little so-and-sos. Lionsgate premiered Blair Witch, the new reboot of the 1999 horror classic, at Comic-Con earlier tonight, and they gave the exclusive news about the until-now-top-secret film to Entertainment Weekly. What I find amazing is that they’ve screened this film at least once for press and they managed to actually keep the secret until now. I know how embargoes work, and I know how people love to talk, so for Lionsgate to have pulled this off makes me believe once again that you can actually have and keep a secret in this business. Much like 10 Cloverfield Lane did earlier this year, this film snuck up on us while hiding in plain sight. It’s tough to keep the entire existence of a movie a secret, but keeping the nature of it a secret by telling everyone that it’s something else seems to be a workable game plan. »

Harvey Weinstein Says ‘Lion’ “Could Get Nominated For Eight Or Nine Academy Awards”

Harvey Weinstein has been facing a lot of scrutiny ever since Quentin Tarantino‘s “The Hateful Eight” underperformed at the box office last winter.

Bruce Dern Joins Jason Clarke’s ‘Chappaquiddick’ Movie

20 July 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bruce Dern will portray Joseph Kennedy in the independent drama “Chappaquiddick” opposite Jason Clarke as Ted Kennedy.

Apex Entertainment’s Mark Ciardi and Campbell McInnes are producing. John Curran is directing from a screenplay by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan.

The film follows the events before and after the 1969 accident on Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts after Ted Kennedy hosted a party and then accidentally drove his car off a one-lane bridge into a tidal channel. His passenger Mary Jo Kopechne drowned.

Kennedy was able to swim to safety but did not report the crash to police for another nine hours. He pled guilty seven days later to a charge of leaving the scene of the crash after causing injury and received a suspended sentence.

The ensuing scandal prevented Kennedy from launching a campaign for President until 1980. Family patriarch Joseph Kennedy, who had suffered a stroke in 1961, had called in advisers including Robert  MacNamara, »

This Week in Marvel Unlimited

19 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This week I wanted to read a classic Spider-Man story I hadn’t had a chance to read yet, Kraven’s Last Hunt. While I’ve certainly been aware of Kraven through the years, he was not really on the level of Green Goblin or Black Cat in my book so I hadn’t read many of his adventures.

Boy was that a mistake. Kraven’s Last Hunt has to go down in my book as my favorite Spider-Man story. If I had to compare it to anything, it would be like if Quentin Tarantino penned a book for Marvel. The mood is creepy throughout. The first image alone, with Kraven crouched on the ground front and center on the page, shows how ferocious, evil, and plainly insane the character is. I love how J.M. DeMatteis was able to portray Kraven as clearly insane but with enough sanity in him »

‘Godzilla: Resurgence’ Trailer: The Beloved Monster Returns In Toho’s First Godzilla Movie In A Decade

19 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Toho first introduced the world to Godzilla back in 1954 with Ishirō Honda’s landmark monster film “Godzilla.” The popularity and success of that film not only launched a multi-media franchise, but also propelled Godzilla into the pop culture stratosphere. Though Toho has made 28 Godzilla films, it hasn’t released one since 2004, but with the success of Gareth Edwards’ 2014 “Godzilla,” the first film in Legendary Picture’s Godzilla–Kong film series and the 30th Godzilla film in the franchise, Toho has decided to jump back into the franchise. Their new film “Godzilla: Resurgence” will reimagine Godzilla’s origins when he emerges in modern Japan for the first time. The film will be co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi, and stars Hiroki Hasegawa (“Why Don’t You Play In Hell?”), Satomi Ishihara (“Attack on Titan”), Yutaka Takenouchi (“USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage”). Watch the trailer for the film below.

Ava DuVernay Original Prison Documentary Set To Open The 54th New York Film Festival

19 July 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announces Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th as the Opening Night selection of the 54th New York Film Festival (September 30 – October 16), making its world premiere at Alice Tully Hall. The 13th is the first-ever nonfiction work to open the festival, and will debut on Netflix and open in a limited theatrical run on October 7.

Chronicling the history of racial inequality in the United States, The 13th examines how our country has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African-American. The title of DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States . . . ” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass incarceration and »

“It is a true honor for me and my collaborators to premiere The 13th as the opening night selection of the New York Film Festival,” Ava DuVernay says. “This film was made as an answer to my own questions about how and why we have become the most incarcerated nation in the world, how and why we regard »

New Trailer for ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Ramps Up the Body Count

18 July 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gunning for a whole new generation of Western fans, Antoine Fuqua’s remake of the classic 1960 “The Magnificent Seven” has released a new trailer. Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt and Ethan Hawke star in the MGM-Columbia Pictures movie, which opens Sept. 23. “True Detective” writer-creator  Nic Pizzolatto wrote the screenplay with Richard Wenk, so expect plenty of darker-than-dark brooding action and perhaps a fair number of corpses. Peter Sarsgaard stars as the evil industrialist who controls the town, while Haley Bennett leads the townspeople to fight back. The 1960 film was of course based on Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai,” while both Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” and Adam Sandler’s “The Ridiculous Six” were recent homage/parodies of the fertile material.
