Second Opinion – The Lost City of Z (2017)

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lost City Of Z, 2016.

Directed by James Gray.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, and Angus Macfadyen.

Synopsis:

A true-life drama, centering on British explorer Col. Percival Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s.

Bringing to mind the grand, opulence of the cinematic epics of yesteryear, The Lost City of Z is a miraculous, rare piece of filmmaking that aches with emotion and overflows with stirring profundity. It’s a jubilant triumph rich in treasure, so substantial in its grandiose themes that for it to truly be unpacked, it would take a trip to the titular Zed and a lengthy stay. Bring your suitcase; you’re in for the long haul.

Told over 20 years, through wars and expeditions, through births and deaths, director James Gray has woven a tale decadently rich and sumptuous. Before returning to the more »

Movie Review – The Lost City Of Z (2016)

20 March 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Lost City Of Z, 2016.

Directed by James Gray.

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Holland, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, and Angus Macfadyen.

Synopsis:

The true-life story of early 20th century soldier-turned-explorer Percy Fawcett who discovered signs of an early civilisation in the Amazon basin.  After serving in World War I, he made a final expedition, along with his teenage son, convinced that he would at long last find both the location and the proof he’d been searching for.

Think of a director who could make an epic movie, and somewhere at the foot of the list would be James Gray.  Films like The Yards (2000) and Two Lovers (2008) earned him Palme D’Or nominations that didn’t translate into box office.  The Immigrant (2013) fared even worse: not only was its distribution severely limited in America, it didn’t even make it into UK cinemas.  Now, after working on essentially the fringes »

The Lost City Of Z review

20 March 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Charlie Hunnam takes on the Amazon in period epic The Lost City Of Z. Here’s our review of a grand adventure-drama...

Anyone harbouring a lingering shred of nostalgia for the British Empire should take a good look at The Lost City Of Z. Some may want to get back to those days of colonies and economic expansion, but it’s wise to remember they were also a period of arrogance, oppression and outright ignorance.

This much is revealed in the film’s pivotal scene where soldier and explorer Major Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) lays out evidence for a previously undiscovered Amazonian civilisation before an incredulous Royal Geological Society. Fawcett’s assembled peers raucously laugh off the claims, since they would skewer their long-held belief that the jungles of South America are the homes of inferior ‘savages’, to use their own term. Empires, in short, are built on a sense of superiority and entitlement. »

Review: ‘Power Rangers’ Is a Mega-Budget Reboot That’s Embarrassed of the TV Show It’s Based On

19 March 2017 8:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It really isn’t that weird that someone spent $105 million on a “Power Rangers” movie in 2017. What’s weird is that someone spent $105 million on a “Power Rangers” movie in 2017, and then decided that it should open with a gag about a teenage boy inadvertently masturbating a bull.

Yes, we live in an an infantilizing age of blockbuster cinema that sustains itself by selling people overpriced echoes of the songs they sang as kids. Yes, Hollywood is growing desperate for previously established properties it can exhume, refurbish, and sell back to the public as mega-budget franchises with international appeal. And yes, the studios are starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel, throwing money at anything that boasts even the faintest glimmer of brand recognition (the next few months alone will see big screen versions of “CHiPS,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and “Baywatch”). But “Power Rangers,” which feels so distant »

Exclusive: Star Blazers Movie Is A Go With New Screenwriter on Board!

18 March 2017 12:57 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

With the upcoming Power Rangers and Ghost in the Shell movies coming out over the next few weeks, one might want to take a look back to the '70s and '80s as a time when Asian productions were frequently brought to American shores.

One of the originators of that tradition was the cartoon Star Blazers,  based on the Japanese anime Space Battleship Yamato.

The Star Blazers animated show only had three seasons that ran from 1979 to 1984, but it created an avid fanbase with the related toys, comic books and other iterations, all of which followed the adventures of the crew of the Argo, an old battleship turned into a starship that is used to fight against the forces of Gamilon, a distant planet that attacks earth sometime in the future.

The show's fanbase has mainly been kept alive by constant reissues of the show on DVD until 2012 when »

Newswire: Charlie Hunnam thinks kissing scenes are gross

16 March 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Please know this: Much of the footage featured in this Sons Of Anarchy fan video was probably deeply unenjoyable for Charlie Hunnam, and Fifty Shades Of Grey would have been a real fucking drag if he had ended up starring in it. That’s because, as he revealed in an interview with Elle, he isn’t a fan of sex and/or kissing scenes due to being “profoundly germophobic.” So basically, he’s happy kissing his girlfriend and pretty much no one else. To elaborate on this fear, he told a traumatic story about a parasite that was going around when he was a youngster.

When I was maybe eight or nine, there was a parasite from dogs in the north of England that, if you ingested it, could turn you blind. We had a thing in schools to educate the kids about the importance of hygiene, specifically around dogs »

Sienna Miller: 'I feel relatively immune to bitchy criticism now'

16 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The British actor set out to emulate Meryl Streep but ended up being portrayed as the next Kate Moss. Now, with the tabloid assaults behind her, she talks ambition, Leveson and The Lost City of Z

Sienna Miller is captivating company, but as she talks I find myself thinking about Harriet Harman instead. The veteran Labour MP spoke not long ago about the mysteriously elusive timing of a woman’s prime; when young she is a floozy, too flighty to take seriously, then motherhood casts her to the margins, and by the time her children have grown up she is over the hill. Every woman will recognise the conundrum, but probably none more than Miller.

Interview: Director James Gray on The Lost City of Z

16 March 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

We’re huge fans of James Gray’s work on HeyUGuys. His work on films such as We Own the Night, Two Lovers and 2013’s under-seen (but often on Netflix) classic The Immigrant are stirring works of an assured cinematic hand. Next week his latest film, The Lost City of Z, arrives in UK cinemas, and is well worth your time.

The film tells the story, so vividly brought to life in David Grann’s 2009 bestseller, subtitled: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, of explorer Percy Fawcett. His journeys deep into the Amazon to uncover the secrets of a lost civilization were followed intently at the time, making his disappearance in 1925 of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.

The Gross Reason Charlie Hunnam Is a Germaphobe – and Hates Sex Scenes

15 March 2017 4:37 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Charlie Hunnam has simulated sex with some of the most beautiful actresses in the world — and chances are he was hating every second of it.

Hunnam isn’t the only actor to admit that movie sex isn’t as steamy as it seems, but his aversion to getting down and dirty with his costars goes way beyond the rote awkwardness of the situation.

For starters, his longtime girlfriend Morgana McNelis is not a fan of watching him get intimate with other women. But perhaps even more importantly, as he tells Elle, “I’m also a germaphobe.”

He explains, “I’ve »

Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. »

Charlie Hunnam Explains Why He Has Not Seen 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Since Backing Out of Movie

15 March 2017 10:53 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Charlie Hunnam wants to put his Fifty Shades of Grey days behind him.

The Sons of Anarchy star was originally cast to play the lead role of Christian Grey in the wildly popular erotic books-turned-movie series, but pulled out of the project in October 2013. The studio said in a statement at the time that Hunnam's "immersive TV schedule [was] not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role." He was subsequently replaced by Jamie Dornan, who wrapped filming the Fifty Shades trilogy opposite Dakota Johnson in July.

Nearly four years later, Hunnam admits that he's never seen Fifty Shades of Grey. "I developed a friendship with [director Sam Taylor-Johnson], but that was a somewhat traumatic experience for me," he tells Elle magazine. "I didn't want to open that wound."

This might have all been a blessing in disguise as the 36-year-old actor goes on »
