Cinema’s Top Underwater Thrillers

2 March 2017 6:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The new aquatic adventure film The Chamber – where a submarine mission goes badly wrong – is the epitome of an underwater thriller. It plunges you into the action and makes you feel as if you’re right there with the crew fighting amongst each other, and fighting for their lives, sinking into the depths of the Yellow Sea. Here are eight more deep sea chillers that’ll have you struggling for breath.

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961)

“Race from outer space to seven miles below the sea … with amazing aquanauts of the deep!” In this classic sci-fi adventure Walter Pidgeon is in charge of a nuclear submarine whose very mission is to save the planet Earth. Directed by Irwin Allen, who went on to make disaster movies like The Poseidon Adventure and The Swarm, the film features the sub being attacked by a giant octopus, which should be recommendation enough. »

Terrence Malick Returns to WWII in First Look at ‘Radegund’

10 February 2017 9:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In just five weeks we’ll be getting a new film from Terrence Malick, but as we await the first trailer for Song to Song, the debut look at his next drama has now arrived. Returning to World War II after The Thin Red Line — albeit in a very different form — Radegund follows Austria’s Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), a conscientious objector who was put to death at the age of 36 for undermining military actions.

The cast also features Valerie Pachner, Michael Nyqvist, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jürgen Prochnow, and Bruno Ganz, and Variety has premiered the first image, which one can see above. “This is Malick returning to the top of his game in the telling of an extraordinary true story which has great resonance in today’s moral climate,” sales agent David Garrett says, who also confirms a 2017 premiere is the works, which is a rapidly fast turn-around in the world of Malick. »

Word comes by way of Screen Daily, confirming that David Garrett’s Mister Smith Entertainment will handle international sales for Radegund which, it should be noted, is simply a working title for the time being and is therefore subject to change. Currently brewing in post-production, the film’s logline reveals that Malick’s wartime drama will chronicle the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer and conscientious objector who defied Hitler and followed his wife on the path of resistance.

Heralding Malick’s first WWII feature since The Thin Red Line, we understand Radegund‘s ensemble cast is headed up by August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Matthias Schoenaerts, Bruno Ganz, Martin Wuttke, Maria Simon, Karin Neuhäuser, and Alexander Fehling. Contrary to previous reports, there’s no »

It’s John Carpenter’s birthday this week, so of course we gave a listen to one of the few commentary tracks he’s done that we haven’t covered yet. (And now we know why.)

In the Mouth of Madness (1994)

Commentator: John Carpenter (director), Gary B. Kibbe (cinematographer)

4. Sam Neill, who plays John Trent, was cut by broken glass in the scene where his cell door window is shattered. “He wasn’t too happy about it.”

5. Neill is apparently “the world’s biggest fan »
