James Gunn talks about Guardians of the Galaxy 2

21 October 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent news that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 would be released on special edition cassette next month and Guardians of the Galaxy becoming the third highest grossing Marvel movie (as well as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014), it must be pretty good to be James Gunn right now.

But how is he celebrating the success? By writing the sequel…

“I spent all day on August 1st, the day the first movie was released, writing Guardians 2,” he told Variety. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”

He also gave a scoop on what we can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, “It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes, »

Guardians of the Galaxy is now Marvel’s third highest-grossing film

19 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.

Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.

So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

Kent Jones on Misty Upham with Benicio Del Toro in Arnaud Desplechin's Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian: "So what I remember of Misty is that she spoke and moved quietly, as if she were holding something in balance, something fragile."

Kent Jones, who co-wrote the screenplay for Jimmy P: Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian, calls to mind director Arnaud Desplechin's enthusiastic reaction when Misty Upham was cast opposite Benicio Del Toro as Jimmy P's love interest Jane. Kent shares with us how Misty Upham felt about the way John Wells' August: Osage County was promoted and his reaction to her role as Johnna in the film, as well as Michelle Thrush's (Gayle Picard) and Misty's Jimmy P Cannes experiences.

Misty Upham found dead in Seattle suburb (photo: Misty Upham and Juliette Lewis) Actress Misty Upham, who had gone missing since October 6, 2014, was found dead on Thursday, October 16, in a wooded area along the White River in suburban Seattle. The cause and time of death remain unclear. Best known for her roles in Frozen River, which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination, and August: Osage County, Upham was 32. According to a statement her father, Charles Upham, sent to media outlets, Misty Upham was last seen on October 5, walking from her sister's apartment in Muckleshoot, Washington. Her father added that she suffered from bipolar disorder and had bouts of depression and anxiety — she had gone missing in the past — but said he didn't believe she was suicidal. "The truth is Misty is not stressed over money or career. Her career is going great," he wrote last Sunday, October 12. "As her »

Misty Upham with Arnaud Desplechin on the set of Jimmy P: Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian: "l faudrait un quatrain d’Emily Dickinson pour chanter Misty."

The mysterious disappearance and death of Misty Upham thrust this rising actress into the headlines.

The mysterious disappearance and death of Misty Upham thrust this rising actress into the headlines. Though Upham starred in several critically-acclaimed films, she was still cleaning homes when she auditioned for August: Osage County, and many people may now be hearing her name for the first time.

ETonline took a look back at the life and work of an actress who had starred alongside such film greats as Meryl Streep (August: Osage County), Benicio Del Toro (Jimmy P.) and Melissa Leo (Frozen River).

News: Juliette Lewis: Misty Upham's Death Was Not a Suicide

Native American Upbringing: Born on July 6, 1982, in Kalispell, Mont., Misty was raised in Auburn, Wash. -- about 28 miles south of Seattle -- and was a member of the Blackfoot Tribe, the largest Native American tribe in Montana. Misty has said she is the direct descendant of the »

Wolves Review

17 October 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Wolves is a strange beast (Zing) in that half the film feels like a declawed melodrama, while the other half forms a cartoonishly vibrant creature-feature with gore to match. Writer/Director David Hayter (X-Men/Watchmen) transforms the primal nature of familial wolfpacks into a Hatfield/McCoy situation where a town is divided by afflicted bloodlines, mirroring historical territory wars with a horrifically inaccurate twist. Points are awarded for avoiding another Benicio Del Toro debacle that favors CG werewolves over suited mongrels, yet the costumed characters almost look like furry cosplayers at points when focused on for too long, ruining whatever illusion an even hairier Jason Momoa creates. Sometimes you’ll find yourself fearing the ferocious roars of Hayter’s bloodthirsty clan, while other moments will strangely make you want to pet Momoa’s belly while his leg twitches uncontrollably. Who’s a good little werewolf monster!

Thanks to its strong performance in China, Marvel’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now passed the $700 million mark at the global box-office, with the Phase Two film currently just shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s haul of $707.9 million with $705.1 million to date. It looks certain now that Guardians will overtake Spider-Man and fellow McU release Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($713.9 million), while X-Men: Days of Future Past’s $747.9 million is still a possibility. Either way it’s a superb result for Marvel and its “risky” little-known property…

'Inherent Vice' Headed for AFI Fest: Why the Film Has a Long Way to Go

15 October 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

AFI Fest 2014 has slated Paul Thomas Anderson's '70s-set Pynchon adaptation "Inherent Vice" as its centerpiece gala film. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Benicio del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Martin Short, Jenna Malone and (wait for it) Joanna Newsom, the film will screen at the Egyptian Theatre on November 8 accompanied by a conversation with Anderson. The first half hour of Paul Thomas Anderson's bloated (148-minute) stoner detective film noir is exhilarating. But the movie faces a tough slog ahead (here are five reasons why). For one, it's not clicking with Oscar gurus, who've placed it on the low-end of the Best Picture race at number 16. Reactions out of the New York Film Festival ran the gamut even among Anderson acolytes. (Toh! debates the film with Indiewire's Eric Kohn here.) Anderson had long wanted to adapt Pynchon. Is it successful? That depends on what you demand from an L. »

More on the Indian films showcased at the Zurich Film Festival

15 October 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

British journalist Ashanti Omkar of the BBC Asian Network and Indian cinema expert to BBC London and BBC West Midlands, and photographer Akin Aworan flew to the Zurich Film Festival, 10th anniversary, to get the lowdown on the India “New World View” section for Galatta cinema magazine in India and we have some highlights!

The fanfare for the India section began with a Bollywood flash mob, at SihlCity, a vibrant cinema and mall and a deliciously catered Indian party.

For the festival, the World View sections with a spotlight on India, the focus was on independent cinema, as opposed to the “woods” of Indian cinema, like Bollywood and Kollywood. These special selections were curated by Georg Bütler, the senior programmer of the festival. Despite not ever having been to India, Georg was able to find and astutely select 12 of the best films from the subcontinent.

New Guardians Of The Galaxy Concept Art Highlights Ophelia Lovibond's 'Carina'

14 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

One of the many delights in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy that not many have acknowledged is Ophelia Lovibond's limited performance as Carina, the slave/assistant to Benicio Del Toro's the Collector, who later tries (and fails fatally) to overpower her quirky master. That sequence and an early design of the character feature in new concept art by the great Andy Park. Check it out! Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. »

Dracula Untold Review

9 October 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While you might think there’s nothing left of Dracula’s mythology to be told, first-time-director Gary Shore dives deeper than ever into Vlad The Impaler’s humble beginnings. Dracula Untold seems like a superfluous extension of Universal’s monster canon, kickstarting the Count with another fresh-faced actor, and while the world would have kept spinning had Shore’s film never been greenlit, this year’s revamp plays out in a “no harm, no foul” type of manner.

As expected from a mass-appealing PG-13 endeavor, there isn’t a lick of horror that’s worth a genre fan’s giddiness to be found here, yet batty action sequences bring Dracula’s mythology to life through rarely seen heroism. He’s more superhero than anything now, commanding nature while beating through hordes of soldiers, as Universal seems to be going the Marvel route with their classic horror properties. Dracula is the »

Guardians of the Galaxy renamed to “Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team” in China

8 October 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s not unusual for China or other Asian countries to change the names of popular movies and, more often than not, they end up being funnier or more apt than the original English titles. It was announced by James Gunn via Twitter that Guardians of the Galaxy is no exception to the rule and has been renamed Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team for its Chinese release.

Here’s the tweet:

星際異攻隊 – that is, Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team -opens Friday in China! pic.twitter.com/9XpSoxqrAU

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) October 6, 2014

However, some have noted over at Reddit that this could actually be the Taiwanese title and the poster in Gunn’s tweet is using traditional Chinese letters rather than simplified ones, which is a big deal when it comes to translation. Should that be the case, the title is actually Interstellar Special Ability Team or Interstellar Different Commandos. Both of which »
