Sicario Director Denis Villeneuve Explains The Challenge Of Making A Female-Led Movie

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is no stranger to the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, having had many titles from his back catalogue screen there, his upcoming effort – Sicario – is something of a watershed, being his first feature-length film to be selected to screen in competition during the event. The film – about Mexican drug cartels – will have a wider release on September 18th, and stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro.

The most recent films from Villeneuve include the critically acclaimed Prisoners and Enemy, and the successful director recently spoke to The Montreal Gazette on hearing the announcement of the selection of Sicario, expressing confidence in his latest work.

“It’s my best film yet. It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film yet. I take total responsibility for it – whether people like it or not. I had absolute total freedom on the film, »

Director Baltasar Kormakur Talks Everest and His Viking Movie Vikingur

15 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While at this year’s CinemaCon, I landed an exclusive interview with director Baltasar Kormákur. He was in Las Vegas to accept the award for International Filmmaker of the Year from CinemaCon and also to promote his upcoming Universal movie Everest. If you’re not familiar with the film, it’s based on a true story and it “documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.” Loaded with an all-star cast featuring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, Robin Wright, and Keira Knightley, Everest hits theaters September 18th and is one of my most anticipated films of the year after seeing the first footage. Kormákur and I sat down for an interview shortly after he won his award. He talked about where he’s at in post-production, »

Denis Villeneuve Says 'Sicario' Is His "Best Film Yet," Reveals Backers Wanted Emily Blunt's Part Rewritten For A Man

17 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you were to ask anyone around The Playlist watercooler what their most anticipated film at the Cannes Film Festival is, you'd likely hear Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" crop up more than once. "Prisoners" and "Enemy" were very well admired around these parts (and of course, elsewhere too) and the director himself is feeling very confident about his latest work. “It’s my best film yet,” he said at a press conference earlier this month, following the announcement his film had made it into Cannes (via The Montreal Gazette). “It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film as well.” It's "...a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent,” he added, when speaking recently with The Guardian. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, "Sicario" centers on a female cop (Blunt) and two male Delta Force rangers who cross from »

'Age of Ultron' Review: Blockbuster Sequel Offers More of Same to Satisfy Global Audiences' Appetite

26 April 2015 8:13 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron': Chris Evans as Captain America and Chris Hemsworth as Thor 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' review: More of same in 'The Avengers' gargantuan sequel Someday somebody's going to make a superhero tentpole movie that doesn't involve the fate of the world or lay waste to vast chunks of God's green earth. Writer/director Joss Whedon, he of the numbingly gargantuan action sequence, is not that somebody. And yet to blame him for not following up 2012's The Avengers, the third highest grossing film ever made, with My Dinner with Thor is not realistic. It would also be a shame. Whedon, by any fair accounting, marshaled enormous reserves of wit and flair to slam-dunk the first film, a mighty achievement considering he needed to establish the Avengers series as the all-important sun around which an entire solar system of individual comic book properties would revolve. For the inevitable round two, »

Joss Whedon interested in directing a DC movie

26 April 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Joss Whedon has decided to call time on his Marvel exploits with Avengers: Age of Ultron, having decided to hand over the reins on the Avengers franchise to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo for Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems he still has ambitions in the superhero genre, with the filmmaker telling IGN that he’d like to take a crack at a DC movie.

“I’d be like ‘I have all these joke ideas.’ And they’d be like ‘No, we don’t do that here.’ I desperately wanted to do a Batman film – who doesn’t? And I wanted to do Wonder Woman. I was a Marvel kid growing up, but I was always DC-curious. And I see myself on the spectrum in between.”

Whedon did spend several years developing a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. [you can take a look at the 2005 Comic-Con poster here], and he was »

Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray to include extended edition and alternate ending

25 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It only just opened in the UK this past Thursday – and is yet to even hit screens in the States – but Amazon is already offering us the chance to pre-order Avengers: Age of Ultron on Blu-ray, and if its product description is any indication, the home entertainment release will include an extended version of the movie, as well as an alternate ending…

Joss Whedon’s original cut of the movie ran for some three hours in length, but just last week the filmmaker warned us not to expect a Director’s Cut of the movie, although he did promise plenty of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray and DVD release. So, this news is certainly surprising, and we should probably wait until we hear something from Marvel before taking this as gospel…

Joss Whedon talks Spider-Man, Agent Coulson, Planet Hulk, Marvel vs DC, and Batman

24 April 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening in the UK yesterday [read our review here] ahead of its Stateside release next Friday, Joss Whedon has been out and about on the press rounds for the film, during which he fielded a host of questions on all things Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the upcoming debut of Spider-Man, whether Agent Coulson is alive in the big screen side of the McU, if a Planet Hulk movie could work, and the competition between Marvel and DC.

On Spider-Man (via Yahoo! Movies): “[I’d like to have worked on Spider-Man], he’s the poster child. He’s the first book I read, and I think that’s true for a lot of people. There are so many things I would want to do, even with [The Avengers], even with just one of these characters. But the fact of the matter is: they’re doing fine, and I’ve probably got to move on.

Cannes: Denis Villeneuve Says Drug War Film 'Sicario' Is "Very Dark" and "Quite Violent"

24 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Denis Villeneuve offered just a taste of what to expect for his latest in The Guardian on Friday. "Sicario," slang for hitman, stars Emily Blunt as an FBI agent and Josh Brolin as the CIA official who lead the charge against a horrific drug lord on the streets of Juarez, just outside El Paso, Texas. Tasked with doing the deed is Benicio del Toro's titular assassin. Villeneuve said: “a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent... It’s about the alienation of the cycles of violence, how at one point we are in those spirals of violence and ask ourselves, ‘Is there a solution?' My movie raises the question; it doesn’t give any answer.” It will be hard to avoid comparisons to Steven Soderbergh's powerful "Traffic," del Toro's 2001 best supporting actor winner that also dwelled in the far-reaching runoff of the Mexican-American drug trade.

Chris Pratt, 'Crimson Peak' and 8 other takeaways from Universal's CinemaCon sneaks

23 April 2015 7:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Las Vegas - It's been a fantastic 2015 so far for Universal Pictures.  "Fifty Shades of Grey" has earned $568 million worldwide and "Furious 7" has taken in $300 million domestic and $1.15 billion globally.  Universal was the last studio to present their slate to the world's theater owners and, as you can guess, they were pretty bullish on what's to come. Unlike some of their competitors, however, Universal joined Sony Pictures 20th Century Fox by actually making some news during their presentation.  The next "Fifty Shades" movies have titles and release dates and Vin Diesel himself appeared on hand to announce "Furious 8's" April 14, 2017 opening day. Other talent on hand included Seth MacFarlane ("Ted 2"), Amy Schumer ("Trainwreck"), Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World") and Dr. Dre and Ice Cube ("Straight Outta Compton").   Here are some quick takeaways from Universal's upcoming slate. "Everest" looks, um, epic Slight hint to Warner Bros. You might want to move "Black Mass"* off Sept. »

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner apologise for calling Black Widow a “slut” and “whore”

23 April 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the press tour for Avengers: Age of Ultron (read our spoiler free review here), Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner were asked by IGN about Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and relationship status with Hulk in the movie. The question was asked due to the first movie hinting a relationship with Hawkeye and flirtatious teasing between her and Steve Rogers in Captain America: Civil War. Their response was… ill advised.

“She’s a slut”, Renner says flatly, causing Evans to burst into laughter and call her a “complete whore”.

“She’ll just flirt with anyone”, Evans adds.

While it is clear the two are joking, the comments are terribly judged – particularly when Avengers: Age of Ultron is under the firing line once again for not featuring Black Widow on much of its merchandise.

In a statement with EW Evans apologised for his comments saying, “yesterday we were asked about the »
