Video Interview: Denis Villeneuve (Sicario)

17 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

While some filmmakers only find out the night before, Cannes Film Festival’s Thierry Frémaux informed Denis Villeneuve that he’d be part of the Main Comp mix almost three weeks back. Having been on the Croisette before with his debut film Un 32 août sur Terrre (Un Certain Regard), and the Directors’ Fortnight was home for his epic short Next Floor and sobering Polytechnique, the Quebecois helmer saw his critically lauded Incendies and Enemy receive a pass from the fest, but it was this work that ultimately convinced backers with deep pockets to have the auteur filmmaker move onto large-scale productions (Prisoners, Story of Us, the Blade Runner sequel), and in turn Sicario is now among the hopefuls for the Palme d’Or.

The film’s Canadian distributor Entertainment One hosted a press conference the morning of the Cannes announcement and we learned that the filmmaker (who is one degree »

Gary Collinson on the 2015 superhero box office showdown…

Revisiting Last Year’S Predictions

Before we turn our attention to this year’s line-up of superhero movies, we’ll start as always by casting our eye back twelve months to last year’s predictions, as Marvel continued the build to Avengers: Age of Ultron with Captain America: The Winter Soldier as well as launching the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Fox brought together its two X-Men timelines for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sony killed the Spider-Man franchise (again) with The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Last Year’s Prediction - “As for the biggest earner of the year, I can’t look past The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and I expect the sequel to pull in around $700 million, followed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past with around $550 – $600 million apiece (if »

Gary Collinson previews Avengers: Age of Ultron

“I was designed to save the world. People would look to the sky, and see hope… I’ll take that from them first.”

There’s little doubt that – on paper, at least – 2015 is shaping up to be one of the biggest years in memory when it comes to blockbuster cinema, with the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Tomorrowland, San Andreas, Jurassic World, Terminator Genisys, Ant-Man, Mission: Impossible 5, The Fantastic Four and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. are all set to grace the big screen over the next few months. But before then Marvel Studios will kick-start the summer movie season in April (or early May, for those in the States) with what is perhaps the most anticipated of all the summer releases, as Joss Whedon reassembles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for Marvel StudiosAvengers: Age of Ultron.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Will Have More Than One Villain

16 April 2015 1:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Joss Whedon has been making the press rounds of late to promote his highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two adventure Avengers: Age of Ultron, arriving in theaters May 1. While this movie appears to be his last Marvel movie in the foreseeable future, the Avengers will return with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2019, which will be directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. During a recent interview with Vulture, Joss Whedon revealed that Thanos (Josh Brolin) won't be the only villain in the two-part Infinity War movie.

"A lot of people were surprised that Thanos wasn't the villains in Avengers 2, but he was never meant to be. He was always meant to be the puppet-master until he was done doing that, and then he'll be the big villain they face off with. Not solely - I'm sure there'll be plenty more [villains] in that monstrous epic, because »

Cannes Film Festival 2015 Lineup Includes Inside Out, New Woody Allen, and More

16 April 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts.

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

James Gunn: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be about “fathers”

15 April 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn (Slither) has spoken to Vulture about the plot of his Marvel sequel. While attending the Avengers: Age of Ultron (Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) premiere, he teased:

“There’s a lot of stuff I’m excited about in the new movie. Listen, I’m still excited about Star-Lord’s character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it’s exciting to go there.”

Although Gunn doesn’t directly say whether the ‘father’ storyline relates to Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill (Chris Pratt) – it could, after all, refer to Gomorra (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula’s (Karen Gillan) relationship to their adopted father/crazed-dictator Thanos (Josh Brolin), or even Drax’s (Dave Bautista) to his murdered child – the smart Units would be that it does. »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Story Will Focus on Fathers

14 April 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we reported that the story treatment for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is complete, with James Gunn now working on the actual script itself, as shooting is scheduled to begin in February 2016. Last night, the filmmaker took a break from writing to attend the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere in Hollywood, where he revealed a few new details about the sequel. At the heart of last year's Guardians of the Galaxy was Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) relationship with his mother before she passed away, while introducing the mystery of who his father really is. James Gunn confirmed that while the first movie is about mothers, the second is about fathers.

"There's a lot of stuff I'm excited about in the new movie. Listen, I'm still excited about Star-Lord's character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Is a Story about Fathers

14 April 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Guardians of the Galaxy left a big thread hanging about Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father, and it looks like the sequel is going to pick it up. Speaking to Vulture, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 writer-director James Gunn says that the sequel will still keep its focus on the misfit family, but whereas the first movie was about Star-Lord’s relationship to his mother, “this is a story about fathers. So it's exciting to go there.” Although Star-Lord’s father in the comics is J’Son, the Emperor of the Spartoi Empire, Gunn has said since 2013 that it won’t be that character. That will leave plenty of people guessing until at late 2015/early 2016 when casting gets underway, and even then it may remain a mystery if they cast a bunch of older, male actors. Also, note how Gunn said “fathers”, so it will be interesting to see if there will »
