Nocturnal Animals star Jake Gyllenhaal has signed on to appear in Jacques Audiard’s (Dheepan) English-language debut The Sisters Brothers, where he’ll appear alongside Joaquin Phoenix (Inherent Vice) and John C. Reilly (Guardians of the Galaxy).

Variety reports that the film, which is based upon Patrick deWitt’s novel, takes place in Oregon in 1851 and follows two brothers – Eli and Charlie Sisters – who take on a contract to kill a prospector who has stolen money from their boss. Production is set to get underway this summer.

Gyllenhaal will next be seen alongside Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson in the sci-fi thriller Life, which opens next month, and has Bong Joon-ho’s Okja, David Gordon Green’s Stronger and Paul Dano’s Wildlife all expected this year. He is also attached to produce and star in an adaptation of Ubisoft’s hit video game Tom Clancy’s The Division. »

Korea’s Star Directors Are Poised for Their Big 2017 Releases

8 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a strong year for Korean cinema during which diverse genre movies and returning works from top directors enjoyed popularity, 2017 is likely to see another set of blockbusters from big names.

One of South Korea’s best-known international filmmaker, Bong Joon-ho (“Snowpiercer”), is expected to be the first to make a return. Shot in Seoul, New York, and Vancouver, Bong’s latest, “Okja,” is an international production with an investment of $50 million from Netflix. Brad Pitt’s Plan B is involved as a co-producer. With Korean Ahn Seo-hyun in the lead, the picture also stars Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins and Paul Dano.

In “Okja,” a Korean girl risks everything to prevent a multinational company from kidnapping her best friend, a beast called Okja.

The pic will premiere on Netflix in the first half of 2017 and will receive a limited day-and-date theatrical release in the U.S. A theatrical »

New to Streaming: ‘Arrival,’ ‘A Separation,’ ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘The Love Witch,’ and More

3 February 2017 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. »

Feature: The Rise of South Korean Horror Cinema

24 January 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Something strange is happening in South Korea. While Hollywood is churning out dismal remakes and teen-friendly jump scare franchise films, South Korea, for the past decade or so, has been producing intelligent, highly-original and truly effective horror films – including monster movies, zombie thrillers and nerve-shattering psychological mysteries.

The latest is The Wailing, a scary and sometimes funny supernatural epic that mixes police procedural with terrifying occult horror to devastating effect. The film features a bumbling cop investigating a spate of killings that may or may not be linked to a strange man living in the woods, and is packed with incredible set pieces and shocking twists – cementing South Korea’s growing reputation for world class horror. Here are some more that will turn you into a SoKo horrorphile…

R-Point (2004)

A Vietnam war film featuring a platoon of ghosts, this is a genuinely creepy and atmospheric horror film directed by Kong Su-chang, »

Paul Dano joins plane cockpit thriller ‘7500’

17 January 2017 11:50 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Paul Dano will play the lead in the forthcoming thriller 7500, a film which takes place entirely in a plane’s cockpit. It will be directed by Oscar-nominated short film helmer Patrick Vollrath, and produced by Jonas Katzenstein and Maximilian Leo from augenschein-Filmproduktion. They were behind Boo Junfeng‘s Apprentice which we caught in Cannes back last May (it’s excellent).

According to Deadline, 7500 is described as “a nail-biting thriller” ‘which takes place completely in the airplane cockpit during a normal commercial flight from Berlin to Paris. The story follows co-pilot Tobias Ellis (Dano) whose smooth flight is interrupted by screams which can be heard from the cabin. A group of young men then try to enter the cockpit armed with glass bottles and he might fight and then negotiate with his attackers for the sake of all on board his Airbus A319.’

Shooting is set to start this summer in Germany. »

Oscar This: The Academy should consider the farty boner corpse and other frugal effects work

17 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24. Will the Academy uphold conventional wisdom or think outside of the box? With Oscar This, we highlight unlikely candidates—the dark horses we’d love to see compete.

Swiss Army Man, otherwise known (around these parts, anyway) as Farty Boner Corpse, isn’t what people tend to think of as a “special effects movie.” They think of it, quite accurately, as that gross-out Sundance comedy featuring Daniel Radcliffe as a talking, flatulent, sometimes aroused cadaver who befriends a lonely, shipwrecked dude (Paul Dano) in the tropical wilderness. There are no roaring dinosaurs or soaring spaceships, no armies of digital soldiers or dramatically de-aged celebrities. There is a rampaging bear, but he’s a real animal, not a Leo-mauling computer-generated attraction. Most of the movie is just two guys talking. One of them happens to be dead.

After highlighting 50 films that we can guarantee are worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. Rather than regurgitating a list of dated-years-in-advance studio releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a set release — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2017, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond. Be sure to keep the following one-hundred films on your radar (with release dates, where applicable). If you want to see how we did with our picks last year (potentially to shame us), head on over here.

The underrated film acting performances of 2016

4 January 2017 1:39 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Jan 6, 2017

Viola Davis, John Goodman, Bryce Dallas Howard and more, in our rundown of 2016's underrated movie acting work.

This article contains minor spoilers for Pete's Dragon, Suicide Squad and Warcraft: The Beginning.

Nobody is likely to look back on 2016 fondly, whether because of global political instability, celebrity deaths or the rejection of Boaty McBoatface as a suitable name for a research vessel. In the world of film, we note that a lot of the contenders in this year's awards season haven't even been released in UK cinemas yet, and it was hardly a banner year for blockbuster cinema either.

On the plus side, there were some exemplary smaller films, of the kind that awards bodies tend to overlook, released in the last 12 months. Without any apparent genre contenders, like The Martian or Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, this is a year in which performers are more likely »
