Released in October to a muted fanfare Mindhunter represents another singularly personal project from David Fincher. This article was originally conceived as a series overview but has since morphed into something else entirely. My contention is that Fincher never set out to make a show with mass appeal, but strove instead for a more educational, analytical and original piece of work.
For something so defined by the violent acts of others you see very little in Mindhunter. Fincher is unconcerned by the crimes themselves but precisely what made these men do them. Hence the exacting approach, meticulously scripted exchanges and perpetual distance kept between audience and subject. This fly on the wall mentality increases unease, draws you closer yet strips away emotional attachment. It is this contradiction which is key to the success as there is no pandering and little regard for whether audiences watch.
The film is being directed by Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land, City of Ghosts) and stars Pike as American-born British war reporter Marie Colvin, exploring her dangerous assignments in conflict zones such as Chechnya, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.
Filming on A Private War began this week in Jordan, and will shift to the UK in the New Year. Arash Amel has penned the script from Marie Brenner’s 2012 Vanity Fair article ‘Marie Colvin’s Private War’, while Basil Iwanyk, Marissa McMahon and Charlize Theron serve as producers.

“Flarsky” is directed by Jonathan Levine from Dan Sterling’s script. The comedy is currently shooting in Montreal. Lionsgate has set a Feb. 9, 2019, release date.
Rogen is playing the titular Fred Flarsky, battered by his own misfortune and self-destructive ways, who endeavors to pursue Theron’s character — his childhood crush and babysitter, who now happens to be the U.S. Secretary of State and is one of the most unattainable women on earth.
Serkis portrayed the lead character Caesar in Fox’s “War for the Planet of the Apes.” He made his directorial debut on “Breathe,” starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy, and is in post-production on the live-action “Jungle Book,” which Warner Bros. will open on Oct. 19.

The casting was unveiled Tuesday along with Matthew George’s Acacia Entertainment announcing it will produce and finance “A Private War” alongside the Fyzz Facility, which is executive producing.
The biographical drama will be directed by Matthew Heineman, whose credits include “Cartel Land” and “City of Ghosts,” from an Arash Amel screenplay. Academy Award-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson is also on board.
“A Private War” chronicles the life of American-born British war reporter Marie Colvin and is based on Marie Brenner’s 2012 Vanity Fair story “Marie Colvin’s Private War.” Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, Kamala Films’ Marissa McMahon, and Charlize Theron under her Denver & Delilah Productions banner are producing alongside Acacia Entertainment and Savvy Media Holdings.

Another female-led spy thriller is on the way, this one based on a true story. Set in WWII, the pic tells the story of spy recruiter Vera Atkins. The as-yet untitled project will be written by Sarah Megan Thomas (“Equity”) and directed by Lydia Dean Pilcher (“Radium Girls”), The Hollywood Reporter confirms. Both will produce.
Set to begin shooting this spring, the film is currently being cast. Atkins is “known for recruiting, training, and supervising the British secret agents who parachuted into France to sabotage the Nazis during World War II,” the source details. “She was widely believed to have inspired the James Bond character of Miss Moneypenny.” The story follows Atkins as “she selects two of the first women of the Special Operations Executive, also known as Winston Churchill’s ‘secret army’ — a pacifist of Indian descent and a daring American who is challenged, but undaunted,
Payne is hardly the first singer to feature another celeb in his music video. Some are particularly iconic – think Liv Tyler and Alicia Silverstone in Aerosmith’s “Crazy,” or Lena Dunham, Cindy Crawford and more in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” – but there are a bunch we bet you forgot about:

The George Miller of the 1970s would never have believed he would one day be spearheading a production with a budget estimated at a staggering $150 million. Miller had made the first three movies when he was in his thirties. At sixty-seven, when “Fury Road” commenced principal photography, those days were far back in the past. Shooting the original film in Melbourne felt like a lifetime ago.
For his first “Mad Max” movie in close to three decades, Miller wanted to be on the frontline at all times. But he soon realized that was impossible given the scale of production: a 138-day shoot with complicated stunts occurring on a near-daily basis. State-of-the-art technology made the job easier — or at least improved communication. High-definition video reception was broadcast in multiple locations,
Jonathan Levine, who directed Rogen in the cancer comedy 50/50, is in the director’s chair for the Lionsgate movie, currently shooting in Montreal.
Rogen is playing Fred Flarsky, a down-on-his-luck journalist who decides to pursue his childhood crush and former babysitter (Theron), who now happens to be the Secretary of State.
Serkis will play an international media mogul who employs Rogen’s character.
Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are producing via their Point Grey banner...
The design of Atomic Blonde is, well, cool. The colors are cool and the vibe is cool, in a very straightforward way. It’s nothing like the characters, who constantly double-cross each other. The twists and turns of this last-minute Cold War spy movie keep coming until its final moments. Everyone is suspicious, even if it’s not obvious.
Yet the landscape upon which Lorraine (Charlize Theron) and Percival (James McAvoy), the Brits, Americans, French, Russians, West Germans and East Germans play is remarkably uniform. Perhaps this is because the film, directed by David Leitch (John Wick) and written by Kurt Johnstad (300) sees them all as working the same game. It’s a bit like the moral landscape of Sicario, the nihilism of film noir without any of its grand mysteries.

You had us at Charlize Theron.
When compiling a list of five reasons why you must see Atomic Blonde, it wouldn't be out of the question to simply list the actress' name five times. After all, she is not just one of the most talented women in the business, but she's hands down, the most bad-ass female in Hollywood right now. That's why anytime she gets a role where she gets to exemplify just how bad she can be, we're all for it.
In Atomic Blonde, she plays Lorraine Broughton, an undercover MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the death of a fellow agent, and to track down a coveted list that reveals the identities of double agents.
If all of that isn't enough to get you enticed, here
For you cult cinema fans out there, I hope your wallets are ready for some serious damage, as there are a ton of great offerings coming home on November 14th, including the gorgeous limited edition Hellraiser Steelbook, The Paul Naschy Collection II, J.D.’s Revenge, and Arrow’s stunning Blu-ray set honoring one of horror’s true greats—George A. Romero—that features HD releases of Season of the Witch, There’s Always Vanilla, and The Crazies.
