Oscar-Winning Director Steve McQueen to Receive British Film Institute’s Fellowship

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar-winning director-writer-producer Steve McQueen will receive the British Film Institute’s highest accolade, the BFI Fellowship, at the BFI London Film Festival’s awards ceremony Oct. 15 at London’s Banqueting House.

Josh Berger, chair of the BFI, said: “He is one of the most influential and important British artists of the past 25 years and his work, both short- and long-form, has consistently explored the endurance of humanity — even when it is confronted by inhumane cruelty — with a poetry and visual style that he has made his own.”

McQueen commented: “I first walked into the BFI library and cinema 28 years ago. To think that I will now be a fellow and honorary member, with such a distinguished list of people, is mind-blowing. I’m humbly honored.”

The BFI Fellowship is being awarded to McQueen “in recognition of his outstanding contribution to film culture,” showcased in his range of artworks and three multi-award-winning features, »

The All Father has returned in Thor Ragnorok

13 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Odin has gone full hobo in more set photos from Thor Ragnorok! Begging for money, or hiding from Loki??? Who Knows.

In the wake of the first wave of set photos in which Marvel has transformed Australia into New York City, today brings another photo from the set too good to pass up. It is none other then the Allfather himself, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin. I think it is safe to see the rightful king of Asgard has seen better days, but judge for self here:

Now it could just be that the Allfather is in hiding and trying to blend in on Earth, or is it something more? Is it that Loki isn't taking as good care of his adopted father as he should be as he rules Asgard? At least Anthony Hopkins looks like he is having fun on set.

While rumor has it to be that »

Do you like to get your mind blown? Watch 'Voyage of Time'

16 hours ago | 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. Space! Dinosaurs! Black holes! How did director Terrence Malick even get the footage for Voyage of Time? He's really challenged himself this time. He's not just settling for natural light and only shooting during magic hour (the short period of time after sunset and before sunset when sunlight is softer). He's gone deep into the cosmos.  If you ever saw Malick's Tree of Life, one of the best movies of the 21st century, first of all, congratulations. It was a long movie. I saw it twice, so you know I'm crazy. After the first time, I was amazed at how well Malick weaved the history of the world with the history of humanity and each individual and how it's all connected. I enthusiastically showed Tree of Life to my »

Odin featured in Thor: Ragnarok set photo, Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo to compose score

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While his name was absent from the official production announcement, a new photo has emerged from the New York set of Thor Ragnarok, which confirms that Anthony Hopkins will be reprising the role of Odin in next year’s third solo outing for the God of Thunder.

Back in January, it was rumoured that Odin has fled Asgard following the events of Thor: The Dark World, and would be wandering around Midgard “as one of those crazy-looking ‘the end is nigh’ street-corner hobos”. Well, as you can see, it looks like that rumour was on the money…

New Thor: Ragnarok Set Photos Feature Anthony Hopkins’ Odin

23 August 2016 12:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

With filming now underway on the Queensland, Australia set of Thor: Ragnarok, set photos are starting to spill out at an alarming rate. It was only yesterday that we saw a batch that featured stars Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth along with an exciting photo which hinted at a Doctor Strange cameo.

Now, the threequel is making headlines again with another group of set photos that give us our first look at Anthony Hopkins’ Odin in the film (in addition to one more shot of Hiddleson and Hemsworth).

Like the shots from yesterday, it seems like the scenes being filmed here are taking place in New York (or at least, a set that’s made up to look like New York). This is significant because it seems to confirm rumors from earlier in the year, which told us that by the time Thor: Ragnarok rolls around, »

Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh Will Score the Thor: Ragnarok Soundtrack

22 August 2016 5:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

I think we can all agree, that while we may love Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his solo adventures have left a little something to be desired. That being said, Thor: Ragnarok is shaping up to be something very interesting, and potentially special. Things just got even more interesting, as Marvel Studios has tapped Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh to compose the original score for Thor's third solo outing.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed the news that Mothersbaugh will be joining the project, which was originally reported by The Wrap. The studio has yet to make the announcement official. Many may feel that he is a peculiar choice to put together the music for Thor: Ragnarok, but Mothersbaugh has actually had a very impressive career outside of writing 80s hits like "Whip It" and "Uncontrollable Urge." He has nearly 200 composing credits to his name, dating back to the late 1980s. »

Thor returns to Earth in new set photos

22 August 2016 2:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Thor: Ragnorok is in mid production and we are excited as ever! And with new set photos, it looks like the God of Thunder and his mischievous brother will at some point be making their way back to Earth!

Australia! If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere! I do not think that is actually how it goes, but now that Marvel has transformed the streets of Australia into New York I guess it works. In new set photos revealed by The Sydney Morning Herald show Chris Hemsworth's Thor hanging about int he street's of the big apple. Cabs, flags, and News Stands and all. 

Not to mention The Mighty One himself along with his dashingly evil brother chilling out in front of a news stand, thanks to Hemsworth's Instagram:

More photos coming from Director Taika Waititi and writer Daley Pearson's Instagram reveal more set images. »

Thor: Ragnarok Set Photo Reveals Huge Marvel Cameo Spoiler

22 August 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since filming began on Thor: Ragnarok last month, shooting has taken place at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, Australia. While we've seen a few photos from the set, thanks to some aerial photography, we'll likely see plenty more now that filming has shifted to Brisbane, Australia. We reported yesterday that several New York City taxi cabs and emergency vehicles have been spotted in Brisbane in the latest sneak peek. Now that filming has started in the city, we have even more photos and video, including one that teases a huge Marvel Cinematic Universe cameo. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Long before filming began, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased that most of this story would take place in the cosmos, and it wasn't too surprising to learn that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster will not be returning. With the presence of these »

Loki's locks are back. Tom Hiddleston has once again slipped into character as Thor and The Avengers' scheming nemesis, showing up with costar Chris Hemsworth on the set on Thor: Ragnarok in Brisbane, Australia, as he sported the God of Mischief's trademark long, oily 'do.

Possible Spoiler – Thor: Ragnarok set photo suggests a huge cameo

22 August 2016 4:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: potential spoilers below…

Thor: Ragnarok is currently in production in Australia and New York, and a eagle-eyed comic book writer has pointed out that a set photo reveals a potential cameo for the movie.

Drew at Hitflix was informed on Twitter by Gerry Duggan that the below set photo, which sees Thor holding a business card, is leading him to the home of Doctor Stephen Strange.

This should mean that Benedict Cumberbatch will feature in Thor: Ragnarok in some capacity, which is a clever way of keeping the character active before he joins Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War.

Should this rumour be proven correctly, it joins the news that Robert Downey Jr. is set to cameo in Doctor Strange, which is set for release in November. With Hulk also featuring in Thor: Ragnarok and a multitude of characters cameoing in Captain America: Civil War, it’s »

DVD Review – Knight of Cups (2016)

22 August 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Knight of Cups, 2016.

Directed by Terrence Malick.

Starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Brian Dennehy.

Synopsis:

Ray, a Hollywood screenwriter suffering from a metaphysical crisis in his existence, journeys through his life and considers the road he’s spent his life travelling on…

Right at the outset of Knight of Cups, a caption suggests, from the director, that for an optimum impression, you should listen to the film loud. Loud, that’s the word used. Sound and noise are two of the most key twin bedfellows to Terrence Malick’s film, and indeed the word film can be used loosely to describe this. It’s more like a visual art installation, a free form observation on a man, on life, on the absence and simultaneous fullness of life. If that sounds as pretentious as it reads, then you’re halfway to discovering »

New Thor: Ragnarok Set Photos Reveal A Much Different Setting For The God of Thunder

21 August 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thor: Ragnarok is deep into shooting and production, with many set photos revealing the wonderful sets built for Asgard and revealing Cate Blanchett's Hela. Now, some new set photos from the set of the highly anticipated film revealing that some of the film might be set in the human world. Maybe Loki and Thor return to the human world? We can't be too sure. Here are the set photos courtesy of the Sydney Morning Herald, showing the streets of New York packed with school buses, cars and ambulances, which really don't tease a big action set piece. But they're good photos giving some details about the return to Earth. Thor: Ragnarok opens November 3, 2017. Directed by Taika Waititi. Chris Hemsworth stars as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Kate Blanchett as Hela, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk, Karl Urban as Skurge The Executioner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster. »

Natalie Portman thinks she’s done with Marvel

19 August 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in May Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige revealed that Natalie Portman’s Dr. Jane Foster will be absent from the God of Thunder’s third solo movie Thor: Ragnarok, and it looks as though we may have seen the last of the Oscar-winning actress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“As far as I know I’m done,” Portman told the Wall Street Journal when asked if she’ll be back in a future Marvel movie. “I don’t know if maybe one day they’ll ask for an Avengers 7 or whatever, I have no idea. But as far as I know I’m done.”

It’s thought that the majority of Thor: Ragnarok will take place in other realms to Midgard, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to explain her absence. However, any Jane Foster fans hoping we may have got to see her wielding Mjolnir in the »

Charlie Chaplin Sampled in Coldplay’s New Video for ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ — Watch

19 August 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Coldplay is known for their eccentric and artistic music videos that accompany their heartfelt singles. Following suit with their previous clips, their new video for the title track from “A Head Full of Dreams” features the band in a foreign country, this time riding their bikes through Mexico City.

Directed by James Marcus Haney and shot on an 8mm camera, the vintage and grainy looking video begins with a snippet from Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 film “The Great Dictator.” The speech is the same one that plays before each Coldplay show on their current world tour.

“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible,” the clip begins and then continues with other bits from the speech. “You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, »
