Fantasia Review: Let Me Make You A Martyr

22 July 2016 7:55 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This year’s 20th anniversary edition of the Fantasia Film Festival has been hitting home runs, left and right, with films like The Alchemist Cookbook, Slash and now Corey Asraf and John Swab’s Let Me Make You A Martyr. A southern noir thriller, as dirty and grimy as it gets, the film really goes for the jugular, offering viewers a one of a kind of film that truly shows how subtlety and the idea of the quiet sky can be just as intense and frightening as a loud scream.

Told in a non-linear fashion, Let Me Make You A Martyr follows Drew Glass (Niko Nicotera), a young man being questioned about situations that we as viewers haven’t seen yet, so as the story goes on and we learn and discover all of the puzzle pieces, we in turn learn about Drew, his quest for vengeance and to escape »

Fantasia 2016: ‘Let Me Make You A Martyr’

22 July 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Let Me Make You A Martyr review

Let Me Make You A Martyr featured on our list of films we wanted to watch at this year’s Fantasia festival. We’ve finally seen it and can confirm it’s a strong entry in the line-up and did not disappoint.

Drew Glass (Niko Nicotera) returns to his home town after a period away to confront those that have wronged him. At the top of his list is adopted father figure Larry (Mark Boone Junior). He wants Larry out of the way so that he and his adopted sister June (Sam Quartin) can finally be together. However, what Drew doesn’t realise is that he himself is being hunted by the enigmatic Pope (Marilyn Manson).

Let Me Make You A Martyr has a very interesting story to tell. It’s a simple tale, boy wants »

Van Helsing Reboot Will Take Cues From Mad Max

20 July 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Van Helsing, legendary doctor, monster hunter and Count Dracula’s worst nightmare, will soon become one of the cornerstones of Universal’s shared monsters universe, and it appears the studio’s fantasy vehicle is looking to a certain Road Warrior for inspiration.

Unlike The Mummy and Frankenstein – the latter of which is reportedly courting Javier Bardem for the titular, monstrous role – Van Helsing is incubating in the very early stages of development, but that hasn’t stopped writing duo Eric Heisserer and Jon Spaihts from fleshing out ideas for Universal’s new take on cinema’s decorated demon killer. 

Primed for his first screen appearance since 2004’s box office flop – Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale led the charge against the undead in that instance – Heisserer told HitFix that Van Helsing‘s demeanour will be more in line with the roguish, lone-wolf archetype made famous by Mad Max, rather than Jackman’s dashing hero. »

Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis make a break for safety in the final set photos for Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, now that principal photography has officially wrapped.

Cruise and the Peaky Blinders actress were spotted filming last-minute scenes on the streets of London, running square in front of a giant fan. Is it possible that Sofia Boutella’s ancient deity will be whipping up a literal storm in the English capital? Time will tell.

What we do know, however, is a general overview of the story fuelling Alex Kurtzman’s long-awaited franchise overhaul, as the filmmaker looks to unlock Universal’s world of gods and monsters.

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, »

Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

Javier Bardem Is a (Frankenstein's) Monster

12 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Get ready for more reboot franchise mayhem because Universal's Monster Cinematic Universe is growing: Javier Bardem has signed on to play Frankenstein's Monster.

Without any superheros to rely on, the studio is going back to their canon of classic horror icons and roping in some big names. Tom Cruise is the lead in next year's The Mummy revamp, with Russell Crowe also appearing as Dr. Jekyll. Johnny Depp has been confirmed as the Invisible Man for his own stand alone film. Their names may carry cache but each is in need of a (non-Mission: Impossible) hit we can get excited about, so here's hoping they can sommon more than another Van Helsing.

But Bardem's casting is easily the most exciting of the bunch. Let's not forget the actor does creepy so well that he got an Oscar for it, even if his most terrifying feat was his hairstyle in The Counselor. »

Universal's next big franchise play is to reboot their series of classic movie monsters. They're not pulling any punches, either. They're going all out for this hopeful cinematic universe by hiring some of the best big name actors around.

Javier Bardem Wanted as Frankenstein in Universal's Monsters Universe

11 July 2016 4:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal is currently in the middle of trying to launch a cinematic universe centered around their famous movie monsters. The Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise is currently filming and they have plans for a slew of other movies that will connect together at some point down the line.

Variety is reporting that No Country For Old Men and Skyfall star Javier Bardem is in talks to take the lead in Universal Monsters' Frankenstein for their new monsters cinematic universe, through it isn't known if he is playing Dr. Frankenstein or Frankenstein's monster.

Javier Bardem to Play Frankenstein’s Monster in Universal’s New Monsters Universe?

11 July 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Another actor could be joining Universal’s monster mash, as it’s being reported that Javier Bardem (Skyfall, No Country for Old Men) could potentially play Frankenstein’s monster.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bardem is in early discussions to portray Frankenstein in Universal’s new monsters universe. It’s not yet known if Bardem would play Dr. Frankenstein or the scientist’s resurrected monster, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details.

THR also reveals that a standalone Frankenstein film—other than the Bride of Frankenstein movie that’s in the works—isn’t exactly around the corner. Since Bardem is in talks to play the iconic character in the overall rebooted Universal Monsters cinematic universe rather than a Frankenstein film, the actor would likely first appear in another monster’s movie before getting his name on the marquee.

Filming is nearly finished on The Mummy, »

Javier Bardem In Talks To Play Frankenstein's Monster

11 July 2016 3:03 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Universal Pictures' Monster universe is underway and they're eyeing an Oscar-winning actor to play Frankenstein's Monster!  Come inside for more details and a few set photos from the Mummy reboot!

A laundry list of stars has been formed by Universal Pictures for their Monster Universe.  A list that includes Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp as The Invisible Man, Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll and now Javier Bardem as one of the most iconic monsters in cinema history, Frankenstein's Monster.

Over the years, Frankenstein's Monster has been depicted in so many different ways.  From Aaron Eckhart's modern flop to 2004's Van Helsing that had him shown as a cog in Dracula's diabolical plan.  However this time, Universal Pictures hopes to reinvigorate the monster by putting a massive talent, like Bardem, in his shoes.

While we don't know when Frankenstein's Monster will appear in the universe, we can assume that it won't be in The Mummy, »

Javier Bardem In Talks To Star As Frankenstein In Universal's Monsters Universe

11 July 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It looks like Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem is on the cusp of joining fellow A-listers Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Russell Crowe in Universal Pictures' highly ambitious Monsters Movie Universe.  According to Variety, Bardem has entered talks with the studio to star as Frankenstein's monster. It's uncertain which film he'll make his frightening debut, but the report adds that like Crowe's Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, his character is expected to appear in another monster feature first before possibly receiving his own solo spin-off and/or appearing in Bride of Frankenstein, which is also currently in development. Coincidentally, Bardem was previously being courted for the Dr. Jekyll role in The Mummy before passing, which led to Crowe signing on. The Mummy, the first installment in the Monsters Universe, should be wrapping in a few weeks. Alex Kurtzman is directing with Cruise headlining a stellar cast that includes Crowe, Sofia Boutella, »
