Duncan Jones opens up about the troubled production of Warcraft

20 June 2017 8:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night, director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a Q&A screening of last year’s Warcraft in London’s Leicester Square. Amongst talking about what he would have liked to have done with Warcraft 2, Jones opened up about the troubled production of the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones.

“One of the things that was absolute gut-punched was [the narrative],” he said when asked about the battles he lost with the studio. “It’s such an expensive process to make a movie like this, and when you make a decision to exorcise a scene during script stage or anywhere down the line right up towards the end, it’s never coming back. Because it’s too expensive to backtrack though all the animation and effects. People ask me when the directors cut is coming out, and there will never be a director’s cut. Unfortunately. There »

Duncan Jones reveals what his story would have been for Warcraft 2

20 June 2017 4:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: There are spoilers for Warcraft in this post…

Last night Warcraft director Duncan Jones and producer Stuart Fenegan presented a screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. Jones and Fenegan spoke openly about the issues they had making the movie, comparing the studio politics to Game of Thrones at one point, and the director revealed where the story would have gone had Warcraft 2 been green lit (which doesn’t seem likely).

“This first film is about establishing the world, and showing Durotan helping his son escape a dying planet,” Jones told the audience. “So to me the idea over the course of three films would be for Thrall to fulfil that vision of Durotan to create a new homeland for the Orcs. So in [the sequel] it would be the adolescent years of that baby, and anyone who does know their Warcraft stories would »

Duncan Jones says no conversations have taken place about Warcraft 2

12 June 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year’s Warcraft wasn’t the hit many were hoping for and despite setting itself up for one, a sequel was in doubt after a disastrous domestic box office run. There were rumours that a sequel could still happen and there was even a story it could be a Chinese-centric release following fantastic box office numbers there, which helped push Warcraft pass $400 million worldwide – making it the biggest video game movie of all-time.

Jones has been very vocal about the difficulties he had working on the movie – even saying 40 minutes had been cut and it died by death of 1,000 cuts – but was willing to work on a sequel. He recently announced a special screening of the movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London with a Q&A afterwards, and a fan asked him on Twitter if any conversations about Warcraft 2 had taken place. To which the director simply wrote, »

Movie Review – Detour (2016)

24 May 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Detour, 2016.

Directed by Christopher Smith.

Starring Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley, Emory Cohen, John Lynch and Stephen Moyer.

Synopsis:

Law student Harper’s mother is in hospital in a coma and he blames his stepfather, Vincent.  He’s not coping well with the situation, seeking consolation in drink.  After one especially heavy night, he awakes to find local bad boy, Johnny, on his doorstep. Apparently, the night before, Harper employed him to kill Vincent.  It means a trip to Vegas, where his step father has gone “on business”.  And, despite Harper’s efforts to get out of the deal, Johnny isn’t taking no for an answer.

British director, Christopher Smith, has done something of a volte face.  His previous film was seasonal comedy Get Santa in 2014, complete with Jim Broadbent, Rafe Spall and Warwick Davis as the proverbial Christmas elf.  Detour is a million dusty miles away from that.

It could only happen in the movies, or could it? Cinematic Depictions of Real Life Tragedies

27 April 2017 5:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

It comes as no surprise that some of our most heinous historical world events have become the subject of a cinematic depiction. As audiences wanting their thirst for great cinema and intrigue in world issues grow we have had, in the naughties alone, Roman Polanski deliver The Pianist in 2002 and more recently László Nemes’ Son of Saul to quench our desire. Even this week, we have the release of Terry George’s The Promise which tells the story of the Armenian Genocide in the final years of the Ottoman Empire with Oscar Isaac, Charlotte LeBon and Christian Bale hitting our cinemas.

Whether these events are genocides, horrific murders, acts of terrorism or even demonic paranormal activities, our quest for knowledge, understanding and feeling has inspired filmmakers for years. Their films set out to shine a light on the atrocities and suffering of man, and act to empower »

30 Things We Learned from James Mangold’s ‘3:10 to Yuma’ Commentary

26 April 2017 8:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“No one, and I mean no one wanted to make this movie.”

James Mangold delivered one of this year’s best films with Logan, and among its many acclaimed aspects is its vibe and feel of a modern-day western. It’s something he’s done before with Cop Land, but Mangold also made a point of directing an actual western as well.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for…

3:10 to Yuma (2007)

Commentator: James Mangold (director)

1. He assumes the first question we might have for him regarding this film is “why” make a remake at all? “That original film had had such power on me ever since I saw it when I was seventeen years old, and I felt that the story could have power again in a very relevant way now.”

2. While he thinks most remakes are motivated by greed in his eyes for easy, recognizable »
