22 August 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Outside of knowing the Vulture, played by Academy Award-nominee Michael Keaton, will be the main threat to Tom Holland's friendly neighborhood wall-crawler, not much has been revealed about the film's plot and/or which classic Spidey characters will feature, although there have been a number of rumors floating around on the internet the past week or so.  Xiao is probably best known for her current recurring role as Julie Yang on the AMC drama series Halt and Catch Fire and can be seen next in the »

U.S. Trailer For ‘Klown Forever’ Heralds the Return of Danish Depravity

29 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a half-a-decade since the Danish dark comedy Klown was first released. After enjoying a festival run and release here — in which it rightfully earned acclaim for its Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque awkwardness and depravity — the duo have returned. Klown Forever, a follow-up from the original team of director Mikkel Nørgaard and writers / stars Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen, will be released this fall and the U.S. trailer has now landed.

As we said in our review, “Those familiar with the off-kilter comedic duo behind the Danish TV series Klown (or Klovn as it is known in Denmark) — which spurned one of the most hilarious and inappropriate feature films of recent years — will know exactly what type of humor to expect from their sequel Klovn Forever. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen star essentially as parodies of themselves in this Curb Your Enthusiasm-style comedy, »

‘Klown Forever’ Poster and Trailer: Lars von Trier Meets ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ In This Outrageous Danish Shock Comedy

29 July 2016 6:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2010,  Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen took their long-running Danish comedy “Klown” and brought it to the big screen with director Mikkel Nørgaard. Similar to Larry David’s successful HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Klown starred the duo as fictionalized versions of themselves and centered around their increasingly awkward shenanigans and encounters within the Danish entertainment scene (Hvam played a former popular comic and Christensen was his best friend).

Exclusive First Look at Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams in Tom Ford's New Thriller Nocturnal Animals

25 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Six years ago, critics and audiences were taken completely by surprise by A Single Man. The sensitive, stylish drama, adapted from a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, was about one day in the life of a dapper college professor (Colin Firth) who has decided to kill himself rather than live with the grief of his lover's death. For his poignant performance, Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. He lost - but when Firth scored the Best Actor Oscar the next year for The King's Speech, he took a moment to acknowledge A Single Man's first-time director from the podium: "And »

First Look at Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

25 July 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a seven-year gap, fashion designer and director Tom Ford is following up the success of his directorial debut A Single Man with Nocturnal Animals, which has just been given a first look. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.

Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes GodzillaAtonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Second Opinion – Now You See Me 2 (2016)

10 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now You See Me 2, 2016.

Directed by Jon M. Chu.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson, Lizzy Caplan, Morgan Freeman, Daniel Radcliffe and Michael Caine.

 

Synopsis:

The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet.

2013’s Now You See Me was a surprisingly entertaining popcorn film with a ludicrous plot and obvious twists and turns. The sequel is no different when it comes to delivering a highly stupid and implausible script but it is a really fun film that’s easy to watch and entertaining as long as you don’t think too much about it.

This time around the Horsemen have been in hiding for a year after their dramatic getaway at the end of the last film. When they stage their big comeback it doesn’t go entirely to plan and they end up »

Now You See Me 2 movie review: now you don’t

8 July 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The delicately balanced foolishness of Now You See Me gives way to impossibly supernatural magic tricks aimed at thwarting the least menacing villain ever. I’m “biast” (pro): liked the first movie

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It was delicately balanced foolishness that allowed Now You See Me to work. No such luck this time out: the second outing with the Four Horsemen, street magicians turned modern-day Robin Hoods, starts out dumb and illogical and rapidly descends into the fantastically idiotic.

Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Woody Harrelson (Triple 9), and Dave Franco (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) are joined by a new “girl Horseman,” Lizzy Caplan (The Night Before); Isla Fisher wisely chose not to return, perhaps because she realized that no matter how many painfully wannabe-ironic jokes the script makes about the token girl, “the »

Now You See Me 2 review – too long, too complicated, no magic

7 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Daniel Radcliffe, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco and Mark Ruffalo star in this underinteresting magician-thieves caper

The quirky Robin Hood magician-thieves return for another massively overlong, overcomplicated and underinteresting caper, prestidigitating more bad guys out of their ill-gotten gains. Basically, we encounter the same problems of putting magic in a film. Magic is great in real life, but in a made-up world it becomes strangely pointless, because the entire artifice of fiction in the movies is itself a magic trick, and the challenge of a magician’s illusion is nullified from the outset.

Anyway, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco and Mark Ruffalo (but not Isla Fisher) are back, and they have a new, edgy magician with them, played by Lizzy Caplan. They are the “Horsemen” who had gone to ground after the last movie but now are bamboozled and chivvied and sort of zugzwanged into breaking cover for »

Movie Review – Now You See Me 2 (2016)

4 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now You See Me 2, 2016.

Directed by Jon M. Chu.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.

Synopsis:

The Four Horsemen, now with a new recruit, are taken hostage by a tech wizard who forces them to carry out a seemingly impossible heist.

At the end of the last film, it is revealed that FBI agent Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) was the Fool; the omnipotent being, capable to hatch a convoluted, albeit nonsensical, plan to unite the greatest of Earth’s magician. Dylan had managed to lure in the Four Horseman: Danny (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Jack (Dave Franco), and Henley (Isla Fisher). It was, quite frankly, a tacked on ending that made minimal sense, and created greater plot holes to an already messy story. In other words, it was the daft, blockbuster spectacle that came prior »

Oscar Race at the 2016 Halfway Mark: Diversity and Confusion

24 June 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2016 hits the halfway point, the Oscar race is even fuzzier than usual. Two things are clear: The studios are back-loading their awards hopefuls yet again, with launches at fall festivals and/or the fourth quarter; and there are more diverse films in the mix, with at least 16 potential biggies from filmmakers who are women, Asians, Latino-Hispanics, black and seniors (i.e., over 65).

In the past few years, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Boyhood” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” had been widely screened and started industry buzz by late June. This year, there is a lot of industry enthusiasm for a few January-to-June titles such as “Zootopia,” “The Jungle Book” and “The Witch.” But best-pic contenders? Not so sure.

The festivals so far have offered possibilities like “Manchester by the Sea” and “Loving.” And some pundits anointed “The Birth of a Nation” as the Oscar front-runner last January (a mixed blessing for Fox Searchlight, »
