Goodbye Horses: Chopra’s Nonsensical English Language Debut
The point of Bollywood director Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s English debut Broken Horses seems lost, along with a whole host of other cinematic necessities, in translation. A sort of remake of Chopra’s 1989 film Parinda, the action is transposed from Mumbai to the Us Southwest Border circa 9/11, using a metaphor of brotherly discord to reflect the cultural shift toward dehumanization that occurs in the wake of both large and small scale violence. With several well-known cast members in the mix, the film’s biggest mystery is how none of them questioned the implausibility of their character’s dialogue and a staunchly illogical narrative before or during the making of the film. Hovering somewhere between the realm of watchable camp and stilted, po-faced sermonizing, the final product is insignificantly bizarre.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra has produced some of the best in Bollywood from 1989’s Parinda, to 2003’s Munna Bhai Mbbs and the follow up Lage Raho Munna Bhai in 2005, Parineeta in 2005, 3 Idiots in 2009 and last year’s big hit Pk. After making some brilliant films in Bollywood, the director decided to pursue a long held dream of making a film in Hollywood. What is even cooler is that he is just not producing the film, he also wrote and directed the thriller titled Broken Horses. The film stars a huge cast of Hollywood stars including Vincent D’Onofrio (The Judge, Full Metal Jacket, Men In Black), Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Alpha Dog) and Chris Marquette (Alpha Dog, The Girl Next Door) along with Spanish actress, Maria Valverde (Exodus), Thomas Jane, and Sean Patrick Flannery.
Broken Horses is about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence. »

Before I Wake, the new, nightmare-focused film from Absentia and Oculus filmmaker Mike Flanagan has been moved to September from its originally scheduled May release. Variety reports Relativity has set Before I Wake for a September 25th release.

“Before I Wake” will arise on Sept. 25, 2015, after Relativity Studios has opted to move the horror film out of its early summer release date.
It was originally slated to premiere on May 8, a date on which it would have faced competition from “Hot Pursuit,” a buddy comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, as well as the second week of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Relativity is moving the picture because it believes that horror and thriller films tend to perform well in the fall, according to a source close to the studio. It also has a busy summer, »

Reworking elements from his 1989 gangster saga “Parinda” in a contemporary English-language western, Bollywood director Vidhu Vinod Chopra makes a rocky crossover — to put it mildly — in “Broken Horses.” This overwrought tale of two orphaned brothers and their violent hometown reunion fails to convince on several crucial levels, including plotting and dialogue. Despite name cast members and ace work from regular Clint Eastwood d.p. Tom Stern, the audience for this curio exists mainly in the Twilight Zone, which is where the movie often seems to be set.
Pic opens “somewhere near the Mexican border, 15 years ago,” as a sheriff (Thomas Jane) practices at the shooting range. His older son, Buddy (played as a boy by Henry Shotwell, who has a grating, earnest formality), warns him that they’re going to be late for his younger brother’s violin solo. “Pop, we’re gonna miss Jakey’s recital,” he says.

It's not often that a movie from India gets praise from the likes of James Cameron and Alfonso Cuarón, but "Broken Horses" has seen both directors put their promotional weight behind the unique picture. Today we have an exclusive preview of the score by Oscar-nominee John Debney ("The Passion Of The Christ"). Written, produced, and directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and starring Vincent D'Onofrio, Anton Yelchin, Chris Marquette, Maria Velverde, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Thomas Jane, the film promises an intriguing blend of genre elements. Here's the official synopsis: Set in the shadows of the Us-Mexico border gang wars, Broken Horses is an epic thriller about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty and the futility of violence. Debney's orchestral work seems to follow the peaks and valleys of the story, while also capturing the distinct flavor of the modern setting and the musical influences found »

There has been a lot of buzz regarding AMC's upcoming series Mad Men, which will take place at a Manhattan ad agency in the 1960s. Though not much else is known about it yet, the project comes from Matthew Weiner (The Sopranos), which seems to set a high bar. It has been reported today that Thomas Jane (The Punisher) is in talks to star as the male lead for the series, a character named "Don Draper." Though Weiner has said he's looking for an unknown to play the part (while AMC prefers a film star), Jane is overdue for the opportunity to lead a series, and Mad Men might be a great fit. (Jane has done a few period pieces before, including Boogie Nights). Mad Men would mark AMC's first foray into original scripted programming since The Lot, a lamentable comedy which ran for two seasons (that nobody watched), and Remember WENN, »

The award-winning director, famed for making India's highest-grossing blockbuster of all time Pk, has now set a new precedent by becoming the first Indian filmmaker to make a Hollywood production.
Set in the shadows of the Us-Mexico border gang wars, Broken Horses is an epic thriller about the bonds of brotherhood, the laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence.
Describing the significance of the film's title, Chopra told Digital Spy: "When they take a wild horse and tame it, in the West they call it breaking in a horse. So Broken Horses is about how we get tamed in life. How when we are born we are free, and slowly we become tamed by the world around us.
"In this case of course it's a film that deals with mafia and mobs on the Mexican border. »
"I’d love to see him get his due on a platform like this," says DeKNight. "Nothing would delight me more than to see the Punisher get his own show and maybe we could convince Marvel to go Hard-r rating. If any character deserves an R rating, it’s the Punisher.”
This could easily happen as the cast and crew of Daredevil have stated several times that their take on Daredevil is heavily inspired by The Punisher. He is much darker, and a Frank Castle style is threaded deep.
Could we see a cross over event? Or perhaps it's own series? All we can say is.... We Sure Hope So!

If you enjoyed the gritty Power Rangers movie that caused some controversy regarding its legality this week, now it's time to become familiar with more of Adi Shankar's productions. We don't mean his commercial Hollywood features, like Lone Survivor. The Grey and Killing Them Softly, although those are recommended, too. We mean his other "Bootleg Universe" one-shot films, of which Power/Rangers was the latest. Maybe you're already familiar with his first one, 2012's The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, which brought Thomas Jane back as the Marvel Comics antihero. He also made one for the Spider-Man villain Venom and last year produced an animated Judge Dredd web series, which wasn't tied in any way to Dredd, the official comic book adaptation he worked...

Among the more well-regarded horror entries of 2014 was Oculus. Starring Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, the film received accolades on the festival circuit prior to its theatrical release, including from us here at Sound on Sight. The feature brought first-time screenwriter Jeff Howard and directed Mike Flanagan to the attention of many fans of the genre, and now the duo have reunited for a new horror feature, titled Before I Wake.
Flanagan once again takes on directorial duties for the film, along with co-writing the script with Howard. Unlike with Oculus, however, the duo skipped the festival circuit this time around, as well as working with a new set of castmembers. The film stars Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane as a couple who adopts a child, only to discover that both his dreams and nightmares manifest themselves in reality. The movie also stars Jacob Tremblay as the child alongside Annabeth Gish, »

The film, directed by famous Bollywood director Vidhu Vinod Chopra, also stars Chris Marquette, Maria Valverde, Thomas Jane and Sean Patrick Flanery. “Broken Horses” already has big accolades from the likes of James Cameron and Alfonso Cuaro?n, who have called the film “an artistic triumph” and “overwhelming,” respectively. The film focuses on a prodigy who goes to great depths to save his brother from a life of crime. “Having left town as a child after the death of his father, young music prodigy, Jacob Heckum, returns to his desolate hometown after years [ Read More ]
When I discovered Mike Flanagan’s independently made Absentia on DVD (ignore that horrible cover), I felt like this was a new voice in horror. While his style seemed to harken back to good old fashioned storytelling, he still had modern sensibilities. While I didn’t care for Oculus, it was still different enough to not be totally dismissed. Hopefully, Flanagan can average out filmography with Before I Wake starring Thomas Jane & Kate Bosworth. Check out the trailer & images below!
In this intense and heart-pounding supernatural thriller, Jessie (Bosworth) and Mark (Jane) decide to take in a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy, Cody.

We also hear from director Brian A Miller, who worked with Bruce Willis on back to back projects Vice and last year's The Prince.

When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice.
