The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Directors and the film which made them great Part 1

22 February 2017 4:46 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

The Directors, The Auteurs, the Commanders of the Ship, Masters of All They Survey. Too much credit is undoubtedly given to them (film is as collaborative an artistic medium as any), but at the same time they still exert incomparable influence over the end product. We’ve recently looked at writers, with whom all films originate, then to the actors, and now we turn to the greatest directors and all they do to hold the infernal enterprise together.

We can only speculate on what might have been, had Charles Laughton followed up on the unbelievable promise of his debut Night of the Hunter. But he never directed again and so is regrettably out of the running. But hopefully there remains a little something for everyone below and of course the intention is to stimulate debate so by all means add a comment for any glaring omissions.

Synopsis for Nomis with Henry Cavill and Alexandra Daddario revealed

21 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not much is known about Nomis, the psychological thriller starring Henry Cavill (Justice League, Batman v Superman, Sand Castle), Ben Kingsley (The Jungle Book, Night at the Museum 3) and Alexandra Daddario (Baywatch, San Andreas), which is set to start shooting in Canada this month.

The movie is written and directed by David Raymond and produced by Enderby Entertainment.  According to Raymond, the film is “about an American police force who trap an online predator, only to realize the depth of his crimes goes far beyond anything they had anticipated.” Two unofficial synopses of the movie popped up on IMDb last week and have now been confirmed by Enderby Entertainment in a tweet to a Henry Cavill fan site this morning.

Both work for us. Multiple versions out there. https://t.co/cPtA3v8gS2

As of this writing, the unofficial synopses are no longer on the IMDb page, »

Will Get Out Scare Lego Batman Away from the Box Office?

21 February 2017 8:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros.' animated spin-off The Lego Batman Movie has had no trouble taking down a other high-profile competitors in its first two weeks in theaters, beating Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick Chapter 2 in its opening weekend, while handily defeating The Great Wall, Fist Fight and A Cure For Wellness last weekend. This Friday, it may face its greatest challenge yet, with the critically-acclaimed thriller Get Out debuting alongside the action film Collide and the animated family comedy Rock Dog. We're predicting that Get Out will just barely win over The Lego Batman Movie, with the thriller opening to the tune of $23.4 million, as The Lego Batman Movie drops to second place with $19.8 million.

None of this weekend's new releases will have anywhere near the type of wide release of The Lego Batman Movie, which is currently playing in 4,088 theaters. Box Office Mojo reports that Get Out will open in an estimated 2,700 theaters, »

14 February 2017 2:21 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A World War I love story with Josh Hartnett? No, this isn’t a prequel to “Pearl Harbor” (thank the gods), it’s the trailer to the upcoming film, “The Ottoman Lieutenant.” The film, starring Hera Hilmar tells the story of a strong-willed American woman who decides to leave the United States after meeting Jude (Hartnett), an American doctor who runs a hospital within the Ottoman Empire as the first World War looms.

As depicted in the dramatic trailer (filled with fezzes!), it is there where she falls for an Ottoman soldier played by “Game of Thrones” star Michiel Huisman (Daario, your love life’s a mess), inevitably causing friction between her and her Armenian allies. If the trailer’s tagline –“When the world is at war the worst place to be is in love”– is any indication, this love »

Nicholas Hoult in action in new clip from ‘Collide’

11 February 2017 2:29 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Ben Kingsley and Anthony Hopkins, Collide is a new action thriller from director Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch). Well, I say new, but Creevy’s film is one of handful of movies trapped in release limbo following the bankruptcy issues faced by Relativity Media.

After a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen (Anthony Hopkins). Now Casey has precious cargo that belongs to Hagen, who will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Left with no choice, Casey calls his former employer and drug smuggler Geran (Ben Kingsley) to protect his long-time girlfriend Juliette before Hagen gets his hands on her. Casey sets out on an adrenaline-fueled car chase on the German highways to save the love of his life before it’s too late.

Another Trailer for Autobahn Action Film 'Collide' with Nicholas Hoult

18 January 2017 7:16 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We've all got our reasons to crazy, reckless things in life..." Open Road Films has debuted another new trailer for the action thriller Collide, starring superstar actors Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones. This film was supposed to be released last August (see the first trailer here), but after generating pretty much no buzz they delayed it until this February. I'm still not interested, and this still looks as generic and bland as it did before, even with a great cast. Besides Hoult and Jones, this also stars Anthony Hopkins (as a mob boss) and Ben Kingsley (looking wacko), plus Nadia Hilker and Clemens Schick. The story is about an American backpacker caught up in a drug smuggling ring while trying to pull off a heist, taking him "on the run from his employers across Munich's high-speed Autobahn." Of course it's all about the action. Enjoy. Here's the newest trailer (+ international »

Nicholas Hoult & Felicity Jones Drive For Love In New Trailer For ‘Collide’

18 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Geez, Open Road are really kicking off 2017 by getting their garbage out of the way. Last weekend they opened the Jamie Foxx vehicle “Sleepless” without screening it for press, and watched it tank hard over the holiday weekend. And next month comes the frequently delayed “Collide,” and I also won’t be surprised if it also opens without being shown to critics.

Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, a zany Ben Kingsley, and Anthony Hopkins, all collect paydays for the the Eran Creevy (“Welcome To The Punch“) directed movie about a dude who has to go to some crazy lengths to protect his girlfriend from some very bad dudes.
