Wenders Retrospective: Until the End of the World | Review

30 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Pray for the Wounded Planet: Wenders’ Belabored Road Trip to the Apocalypse

The troubled production and following critical ambivalence towards Wim Wenders’ 1991 film Until the End of the World launched it into a sort of oblivion. Nearly twenty five years after its ill-fated reception, initially released as a three hour film which the director bitterly deigned the Reader’s Digest version of his epic, the near four hour and forty minute director’s cut premiered at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival to coincide with the premiere of his first narrative feature in seven years, Every Thing Will Be Fine. Now, this complete version is finally seeing a Us theatrical release courtesy of a fifteen city national touring retrospective of Wenders’ films kicking off in New York at the IFC Center. In retrospect, time has been much kinder to the mishandled title than anticipated. Restored as Wenders’ complete vision, it’s »

New Captain America: Civil War footage! Fantastic Four review! – Watch The Flickering Myth Movie Show #7

30 August 2015 5:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Widow can punch explosions.

Fantastic…Bore. Fantastic…Fourth Worst Movie Ever Made. Fantastic…4%. Or, as some have taken to calling it, just ‘Four’.

It was the fail story of the Summer, with Twentieth Century Fox’s tentpole superhero blockbuster bombing so hard at the box office, it took out a five-mile stretch of Odeons in the Greater Bexleyheath area. In the September edition of The Flickering Myth Movie Show, Oli Davis, Rebecca Perfect, Luke Owen and Kat Kourbeti discuss the problems with the movie, the practice of entrusting $100million+ franchises with young, independent filmmakers (think Gareth Edwards on Godzilla and Colin Treverrow on Jurassic World), and who is really to blame for the movie’s failure – Fantastic Four’s director Josh Trank, or the studio that allegedly hamstrung his production?

Fantastic Four also gets to be the first film receiving the Best Bad Reviews treatment – our new series that »

'Captain America: Civil War' Trailer Footage Leaks

29 August 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Early this week, we saw new promo art that revealed the Captain America: Civil War teams, giving us an idea of who sides with Steve Rogers and who sides with Tony Stark. We get to see those teams taking shape in a group of Gifs and images leaked from the epic D23 trailer that premiered in Anaheim 2 weekends ago. The images aren't the greatest quality. But they offer everyone who wasn't in attendance an idea of what they missed.

In Captain America: Civil War, the superheroes of the world are turn apart by the Sokovia Accords. This so-called Superhero Registration Act demands that all humans (and some non-humans) with super powers identify themselves and be held responsible for their actions. Steve Rogers is against this act, and with him goes Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Agent Sharon Carter, The Winter Soldier and The Falcon. Siding with Tony Stark are War Machine, Black Widow, »

King Of The Road: Five Films You Need To See During Janus Films’ Touring Wim Wenders Retrospective

28 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Very few movements in film history have been as rewarding, and yet as undervalued among film fans, as that of the New German Cinema. With names like Rainer Werner Fassbinder now beginning to be muttered in broad collections of film fans, the world of German filmmaking that came to light in the late 1960s has birthed some of the greatest auteurs of its generation, even a handful that are still turning out some of their best work. Most notably filmmakers like Werner Herzog have transitioned from this movement into worlds that they themselves have broken the ground on.

Same could be said for one Wim Wenders.

Best known for masterpieces like Wings Of Desire and Paris, Texas, the filmmaker is to this day pushing the boundaries of what cinema can do. With 3D films like Pina and his startlingly poignant Salt Of The Earth, Wenders has had a more than productive career spanning 5 decades, »

The divide is clear in new Civil War movie concept art

27 August 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Civil War movie concept art clearly show who sides with who in upcoming superhero film from Marvel.

We all know that it’s going to kick-off big time in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, a film that could be bigger than both Avengers movies. Besides knowing that Captain America and Iron Man would face-off, we haven’t really discovered as to who was going to side with who. Until now.

Looking at this new concept art, exclusively revealed by Cbm, we can clearly see that War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther and Vision side with Tony Stark/ Iron Man, while Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Hawkeye, Ant-Man (he’s on Hawkeye’s shoulder in the pic below) and Sharon Carter siding with Captain America.

Take a look.

Until the End of the World review – visionary techno-futurist nightmare

27 August 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Starring William Hurt, the five-hour director’s cut of Wim Wenders’s 1991 global road-trip movie seems even more miraculous than the leaner original

The end of the world won’t come from a nuclear blast, but from an abundance of selfies. That’s part of the message gleaned from Wim Wenders’s Until the End of the World, the 1991 film that is only now getting a Us theatrical release for its full, almost-five-hour version. Back when smartphones, Gps devices and open European borders were considered sci-fi, the two-and-a-half-hour version of this futurist’s detective story was impressive. But this movie has always had its eye on the future’s potential.

The multinational co-production was enormous in its scope, especially considering the director’s roots as an arthouse film-maker. Budgeted at more than $20m (£13m) and shot all over the world, it was conceived as the “ultimate road picture”. It was »

Captain America: Civil War promo art reveals the two teams

27 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month we heard a rumour about the two “teams” set to form in Captain America: Civil War, and now some promotional art has surfaced via Comic Book Movie which suggests that Heroic Hollywood’s initial report wasn’t entirely accurate (so no surprise there, then). If you don’t want to be spoiled as to which Avengers will be joining Captain America and Iron Man, turn back now…

Still here? Okay, first up is Iron Man’s team…

And Captain America’s…

So, if you’re familiar with the original rumoured rosters, you’ll notice that Spider-Man is absent from Iron Man’s team, replaced instead by Black Panther, while Agent 13/Sharon Carter features on Cap’s team as opposed to Scarlet Witch. You may also notice that Ant-Man is standing atop Hawkeye’s shoulder, »

Maria Bello to Co-Star Opposite Billy Bob Thornton in Amazon’s Legal Drama ‘Trial’

26 August 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Maria Bello will co-star opposite Billy Bob Thornton in Amazon Studios’ series “Trial,” Variety has learned. The legal drama hails from from David E. Kelley, creator of “The Practice,” “Boston Legal” and “Ally McBeal.”

Bello will play attorney Julie McBride, the ex-wife to Thornton’s character Billy McBride, a once-respectable lawyer who was ousted from the high-profile firm he co-founded.

Beautiful, brilliant, accomplished, Julie is successful in her career — she is a co-founding partner at a firm — but her personal life is lacking, as she lost the great love of her life, Billy, and holds him in some contempt for allowing him to derail his life.

Bello also joins William Hurt, who will play Billy McBride’s ex-partner at the firm, plus Olivia Thirlby, who was cast as Lucy Kittridge, a whip-smart, high-powered attorney who’s brilliant but not as seasoned as she pretends to be. Julie (Bello) is the »

Jeremy Renner says it’s unlikely we’ll see The Avengers team with Guardians of the Galaxy

26 August 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Phase Three building towards The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2 and Thanos appearing in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, many fans assumed we would be seeing Earth’s Mightiest Heroes crossing paths with the Guardians.

Well, according to Jeremy Renner. We probably won’t.

“You’ll be eighty years old by then, and I won’t be Hawkeye anymore,” he told the crowd at Wizard World Comic Con about a possible crossover. “I’ll be Dead Guy.”

Gunn himself shot down rumours of the two teams getting together after the release of his Phase Two movie.

William Hurt, Billy Bob Thornton To Go Straight-To-Series On Amazon

25 August 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Before it decides which television projects to bring to series, Amazon Studios usually organizes its pilots in competitive seasons, during which viewers can decide which shows they enjoy the most. With its latest pickup, however, Amazon is skipping the public pilot presentation altogether. Variety has reported Amazon’s decision to greenlight Trial, a courtroom drama that will star Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt.

In Trial, Thorton will star as a disgraced attorney who must argue against his former colleague (Hurt) in a wrongful death case. Olivia Thirlby (Juno, Dredd) will appear as a young, prodigious lawyer. David E. Kelley, known for his work on legal dramas like The Practice, Boston Legal, and Ally McBeal, is the series’ creator.

As with other recent series presented by Amazon, Trial is the sort of show that could make some noise come awards season. Both Hurt and Thornton have received nominations at the »

Marvel's post-credit Easter eggs ranked from worst to best: Does Howard the Duck beat shawarma?

The post-credits scene for the year's biggest Marvel movie snuck online this week with Thanos' appearance at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron landing on YouTube.

The latest in an increasingly long line of fan-rewarding teasers, its arrival heralds a new and very dangerous list: Marvel's post-credit stings from worst to best.

Join in the discussion in the comments box below and consider the spoiler alarm sounded for anyone not fully up to date with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Tony Stark confronts General Thunderbolt Ross

Tony Stark's hypercool presence is a welcome one - and it's neat that Ross's drink is Gamma green - but Marvel never followed up on this tag in future films and eventually had to make a special short to explain it. Incidentally, William Hurt will be back for Captain America: Civil War next year, where hopefully he won't punch any plot holes into the script. »
