Second Trailer for Taylor Sheridan's 'Wind River' with Jeremy Renner

17 July 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This isn't the land of backup, Jane, this is the land of 'you're on your own.'" The Weinstein Company has debuted a second trailer for the indie thriller Wind River, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario and Hell or High Water previously). This film is a "snow-noir" thriller about a murder mystery set in the snowy mountains of Wyoming, mostly around an Indian Reservation where the locals clash with the government authorities. Jeremy Renner stars, with Elizabeth Olsen as a FBI agent sent to investigate. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Martin Sensmeier, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, Graham Greene, and Gil Birmingham. This excellent film has been playing at film festivals all over the world, from Sundance to Cannes to Sydney to Seattle (here's my review). I saw it for a second time at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and it's still as good as it was the first time around. »

Trailer for “Wind River” continues Taylor Sheridan’s Hollywood ascent

30 May 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, Taylor Sheridan’s directorial debut Wind River took an Un Certain Regard prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Just a few days earlier, a First Trailer debuted for the flick. For fans of Sheridan as a writer, this represents a whole new ballgame. Already highly acclaimed for penning Sicario as well as the Oscar nominated script for Hell or High Water, he’s now a fully fledged filmmaker. After getting some strong notices at the Sundance Film Festival, the movie went on to Cannes and killed it there as well. Now, it get set to roll out at the end of the summer. You’ll be able to see the Trailer shortly, but first, as always, some discussion! The film is a crime thriller, though as with all of Sheridan’s works, it’s more than initially meets the eye. Here, the story centers on the investigation »

Bo Report: 'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' rules although well down on predecessor

28 May 2017 9:21 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales..

The fifth edition of the Disney, Jerry Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp Pirates of the Caribbean franchise easily topped the Aussie box office last weekend although the debut was well below the previous installment.

Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and shot in Queensland after an injection of $21.6 million in funding from the federal government plus state government incentives, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales captured $5.9 million on 292 locations, according to ComScore.

That.s 41 per cent below the $9.9 million debut of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in 2011. The latter finished up earning $27.2 million, which may be out of reach of the new film.

Pirates 5 scored an estimated $US77 million over the four-day Memorial Day holiday in the Us and $208 million internationally for a global total of $285 million, so the studio may be hard-pressed to recoup the reported $230 million budget. »

Hell Or High Water Scribe Returns with Wind River [Trailer]

25 May 2017 11:38 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Actor-turned-writer Taylor Sheridan made a big splash with the one-two punch of writing both Sicario and Hell or High Water which is, arguably, one of the best heist movies in a few years.

Now Sheridan is flexing his directing muscle but moving pretty far from the rather terrible horror movie he made nearly a decade ago and staying more in line with his recent fascination with crime thrillers: Wind River.

The Sundance and Cannes selected title is written and directed by Sheridan and stars Jeremy Renner as a game tracker who finds the body of a teenage girl on a Native Reservation in the far north. Elizabeth Olsen plays Jane Banner, an FBI agent sent in to investigate the homicide which appears to affect everyone in town. The movie also co-stars Graham Greene [Continued ...] »

First Official Trailer for Taylor Sheridan's Snow-Noir Film 'Wind River'

25 May 2017 8:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You're looking for clues, but you're missing all the signs." The Weinstein Company has unveiled an official trailer for the indie thriller Wind River, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario and Hell or High Water previously). This film is a "snow-noir" thriller about a murder mystery set in the snowy mountains of Wyoming, mostly around an Indian Reservation where the locals clash with the government authorities. Jeremy Renner stars, with Elizabeth Olsen as a FBI agent sent to investigate. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Martin Sensmeier, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, Graham Greene, and Gil Birmingham. I first saw this at the Sundance Film Festival and loved it - saying in my review that "Sheridan is as talented of a director as he is a screenwriter." It's also showing at the Cannes Film Festival.

70th Cannes Film Festival Review – Wind River (2017)

22 May 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wind River, 2017.

Directed by Taylor Sheridan.

Starring: Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Gil Birmingham, Graham Greene, and Julia Jones.

Synopsis:

The discovery of the bloody corpse of a Native American teen in the frozen Wyoming wilderness prompts a government animal tracker and an FBI agent to join forces to solve the case.

Screenwriter turned director Taylor Sheridan draws on actual events to deliver Wind River, a sucker punch of a movie that’s visceral, unflinching and brooding.

Jeremy Renner plays Cory Lambert, a Wyoming state employed wildlife tracker, who is called to the remote Wind River Indian Reservation to kill a predatory mammal. Although respected for his skills, Cory has a strained relationship with the community as he was married to a woman from the ‘rez’ and fathered two children with her – a young son and a deceased daughter.

During his trek into the snowy mountains, Cory spots the body of a teenage girl. »

Film Review: ‘Paint It Black’

17 May 2017 4:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As directorial debuts go, Amber Tamblyn’s “Paint It Black” is kind of a mess, but then, so are its characters, which makes the film’s raw, off-kilter style somehow right for the material, which began as a Janet Fitch novel. Fitch, whose “White Oleander” offered four talented blondes a chance to act their guts out 15 years ago, finds beauty in white trash, the way a bric-a-brac artist might transform old junk into something delightful. That’s how “Paint It Black” reads as well — unapologetically coarse at times, but gleaming with insights — and Tamblyn has tried, to the best of her ability, to achieve the same effect on screen.

In “White Oleander,” a teenager’s life was set adrift after her mom went to prison for murdering her boyfriend. Likewise, a dead man sets the plot of “Paint It Black” in motion, only this time, the corpse in question offed himself, »

That Time Danny Glover Had A Cameo in Maverick which is a Hilarious Nod to Lethal Weapon

29 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If you haven’t seen the movie Maverick then I highly recommend that you do.  It’s a very underrated comedy starring Mel Gibson, James Garner, and Jodie Foster loosely based on a TV show that Garner starred in of the same name.    Looking back on the film there are a ton of hilarious lines as well as actors with parts in the film that were memorable.  James Coburn was awesome in this film, as was Alfred Molina and Graham Greene.  But perhaps the best appearance in the film was a short cameo by none other than Danny Glover.  Moviephone best described

‘Homeland’ Finale Review: Season 6 Ended With a Complicated Tragedy for Fans and a Haunting Parallel to Modern Politics

9 April 2017 7:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Homeland” Season 6 finale, Episode 12, “America First.”]

Homeland” painted a frightening picture of America throughout Season 6, slowly drawing back the curtain on a massive government conspiracy that resulted in a New York City bombing and an attack on the President-Elect’s life. Thrilling enough in its storytelling, especially during the tense first 20 minutes of the finale, Season 6 was made harrowing by the timely nature of its issues to our current political culture. The latest iteration of the Showtime drama argued we, the people, are not only right to be suspicious of our government, but that its current state is dangerous on a national and personal level for everyone connected to it.

“You remember what Graham Greene said, don’t you?” Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) told Saul (Mandy Patinkin) after he’d been arrested for his part in the conspiracy to discredit President-Elect Keane (Elizabeth Marvel). “The secret services are the only real measure of a nation’s political health. »

Richard Kelly Reflects on ‘Donnie Darko’ and Finding Catharsis in Apocalyptic Narratives

29 March 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. On March 31st, the film will hit theaters once again in a brand-new, director-approved 4K restoration. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration. Sadly it’s been about eight years since a new film of his has been in theaters, but the time is surely ripe. Kelly’s visions of the end-times feel just as urgent now as they did when we were first introduced to them back in 2001. And since we’re living in a time when the formerly reclusive Terrence Malick is miraculously pumping out multiple films a year, there’s »

The Shack Review

3 March 2017 9:48 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’re a movie critic, you shouldn’t make any preconceptions about a film — not even if the Happy Madison logo appears or a title card saying “A Tyler Perry Film” arises. But when breathy radio personality Delilah comes before the “wonderful” film you’re about to see, singing all its benevolent praises before a single slice of celluloid appears, you have good reason to be skeptical.

Based on the phenomenally bestselling novel, The Shack tells a spiritual story of perseverance against and acceptance towards life’s unspeakable cruelties. It’s told through the perspective of Mack (Sam Worthington), a husband and grieving father, fighting to release months upon years of pain and inner torment through one-on-one interactions with Papa (Octavia Spencer), a.k.a God, Jesus (Avraham Aviv Alush) and Sarayu (Sumire), a.k.a. the Holy Spirit, in the titular shack which once housed unfathomable evil. It’s blatantly religious, »

Film Review: ‘The Shack’ is About Spirituality, Not Filmmaking

3 March 2017 7:08 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – To create spirituality from tragedy is like shooting the proverbial fish – a prominent symbol for Christianity – in a barrel. “The Shack” is based on a popular novel, and doesn’t try to do anything different or cinematic with a man encountering the Holy Trinity after a horrific incident.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

This film is impossible to review from a basis of the spirit, because believers and lovers of the novel won’t care what a snotty critic has to say regarding the weird-but-soft encounter of a desperate man with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. But I can judge it as a film, and it really needed more character development. The wife of the emotionally hurt man is nearly invisible, the religiosity of the family is never really explored and the next door neighbor, a presumably good Christian man, seems oddly clingy to his sad buddy.
