Watch An Alternate Hydra Scene From Captain America: The Winter Soldier

11 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Marvel moviegoers may remember the key scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier in which Cap and Black Widow stumble upon the phalanx of ancient computer hardware that made up the preserved "brain" of the villainous Arnim Zola. However, in some newly-surfaced storyboard animatics chronicling an alternate take, things go down quite differently than the scene we saw. Animation artist James Rothwell, who as of late has been posting a number of alternate scene recreations from The Winter Soldier, also recently introduced this intriguing take on the computerized Arnim Zola, played by Toby Jones in his Hydra exposition scene. Cobbling the scene together based on storyboards, Rothwell depicts a sequence that not only renders Cap more wistfully fixated on his past, but a version of the digitized Zola whose existential motivations are radically different. In a notable divergence, we see Zola actually taking time to negotiate with Cap to ensure »

Wayward Pines Season 1 Episode 2 Review – ‘Do Not Discuss Your Life Before’

25 May 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the second episode of Wayward Pines

This dishevelled detective story nurtured by Chuck Hogan and realised by M. Night Shyamalan, takes a bunch of time to go the long way round. Taking on an increasingly creepy tone, Wayward Pines continues to mix up homage ripe territory with a sense of grounded reality. Something which doubtless appealed to the actors involved when this adaptation first hit their collective script piles.

A theory made fact by Matt Dillon and Juliette Lewis who continue building on last week’s impressive opener, playing it straight as tensions ramp up off screen. Something director of choice Charlotte Sieling exploits by allowing carte blanche elsewhere. Whilst simultaneously splitting the action evenly either side of ‘the fence’.

There is a tangible sense of forces converging as Shannyn Sossamon, who I remember from the Brett Easton Ellis’ Rules of Attraction, is given little to do but does it well. »

Wayward Pines Season 1 Episode 1 Review – ‘Where Paradise Is Home’

24 May 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of Wayward Pines

For anyone unfamiliar with Blake Crouch here are a few pointers. His flavour of thriller fiction has made him a household internet sensation. One such creation made its way onto Fox this week in the shape of Wayward Pines. Starting off like first person survival horror, before segueing swiftly into Lynchian homage, Pines is neither overly sophisticated, nor strikingly original at first glance.

Fleshed out by a who’s who of character talent, with at least one Oscar nominee, this ten part drama is both tightly plotted and engaging. Name dropping like a society debutante, the cast includes Toby Jones, Terence Howard and Juliette Lewis. Or Capote, James ‘where’s my money’ Rhodes and ‘the patented indie muse’ as I like to call them. Including Melissa Leo, Carla Gugino and Matt Dillon only serves to add further depth, making Pines both uniquely tempting and simultaneously intriguing. »

Cannes: Will ‘The Assassin’ Slay the Competition?

23 May 2015 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Given the number of films in competition (19), the correspondingly infinite number of possible award/talent configurations, and the sheer impossibility of guessing at the individual and collective tastes of nine jurors, predicting the major award winners at the Cannes Film Festival is obviously a fool’s errand — and one that our critics on the Croisette have gladly undertaken.

Guy Lodge

Palme d’Or: “The Assassin.” Word on the street — and among British bookies — is that my own favorite film of the fest, Yorgos Lanthimos’ high-wire relationship fantasy “The Lobster,” is the one to beat, though whether that’s based on honest hearsay or a projection of the Coen brothers’ taste for dryer-than-dust comedy, I can’t say. As much as it would thrill me to see such a singular combination of concept-y formalism and perverse heart-tugging take the prize, I have a hard time seeing it as the unifying consensus »

Ealing Studios Acquires Stake in GreenAcre Films as TV Expansion Continues

21 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — London’s Ealing Studios is looking to further expand its TV division by acquiring a significant stake in production company GreenAcre Films, and forging a creative partnership with the company. Earlier this year, ITV commissioned Ealing to produce two stand-alone films based on the “Maigret” novels, starring Rowan Atkinson.

Ealing’s stake in Greenacre will see them develop an “ambitious and innovative” TV slate for both U.K. and international broadcasters. This is the first of what Ealing says will be many new partnerships at the newly restructured Ealing, which is headed by Ben Latham-Jones.

GreenAcre was co-founded by Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks in 2010 and became a division of Wall to Wall in 2012. They will continue to co-produce their current drama slate, which includes projects for HBO, BBC and ITV.

Fox’s ‘Wayward Pines’ Premiere Rating Nearly Doubles With Time-Shifted Viewing

19 May 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s “Wayward Pines” had a tough task when it bowed last week — airing opposite season finales on the competition and a big NBA playoff game — but plenty of viewers caught up with the premiere episode of the event series over the weekend.

According to Nielsen’s “live plus-3″ estimates, which include three days’ worth of time-shifted viewing, “Wayward Pines” averaged a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49, a 90% jump over its same-night average (1.0). The percentage gain is the largest for any series debut on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox or CW this season.

For the week, that put it ahead of at least four series on the Big Four network — “Stalker,” “Undateable,” “CSI: Cyber” and “American Crime” — that had outdrawn it in the 18-49 demo in same-night ratings.

In total viewers, “Wayward Pines” grew 65% — from 3.76 million to 6.2 million.

Cannes: Festival Films Offer a Lesson in (Bad) Parenting

19 May 2015 5:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Louder Than Bombs,” Joachim Trier’s sensitively rendered family drama about the lingering aftermath of a mother’s untimely death, begins with a shot of a newborn’s hand clutching his daddy’s finger. It’s a perfect opening image for a film that largely concerns itself with the tensions that can arise between parents and children, particularly when each party is typically doomed to a partial understanding of the other at most. As it happens, it could also serve as one of the defining images for the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival (with apologies to Ingrid Bergman, whose regally disembodied head graces the poster for this year’s event), which has screened a number of pictures in which the price paid by neglectful, irresponsible or just plain ineffectual parenting turns out to be a steep one.

2015 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 2: Lots to Munch on in “Tale of Tales”

15 May 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Marking another strong year for Italian cinema vying for the Palme d’Or, Matteo Garrone is the first out of the gates for the green, white, and red with his eighth feature film. Making his, no less, third straight trip in the Main Comp, there are lofty expectations for Tale of Tales, this is of course due to his back to back “silver” 2nd place wins, landing the Grand Prix for Gomarrah in 2008, and Reality in 2012. In the context of this year’s Cannes, this is one among several auteur-driven (Yorgos Lanthimos, Joachim Trier, Michel Franco) Main Comp films to have made the leap to English language film territory and was a top seeded contender for Palme.

Starring Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Vincent Cassel and Toby Jones, Tale of Tales found both friends and foes among our panel with an average of 2.9. As indicted prior to Cannes with its heavily appetizing trailer, »

Wayward Pines, Ep. 1.01, “Where Paradise Is Home” a familiar take on the unfamiliar setting

Wayward Pines, Season 1, Episode 1, “Where Paradise Is Home

Written by Blake Crouch

Directed by M. Night Shymalan

Airs Thursdays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

As even a cursory glance at the TV Tropes page will tell you, the idea of a seemingly normal town with a dark secret is one of popular culture’s most frequently explored ideas. The dichotomy of an idyllic life with lurking horrors underneath it has been deployed by everyone from H.P. Lovecraft to Stephen King to David Lynch to David E. Kelley, yielding a spectrum of results and interpretations. There’s been so many of them, in fact, that it’s dulled the impact of the genre because the audience is expecting something strange to happen before too long. For a new entry to stand out, it needs to have either an incredibly distinctive voice or a twist on the structure that transcends its stock setting. »

Matteo Garrone Brings Fables to Cannes 2015 with Tale Of Tales

14 May 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Italian director Matteo Garrone, best known for Gomorrah, describes his first English-language film as "a very ambitious project with a group of extraordinary actors." Indeed, the all-star international cast of Tale of Tales includes Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, John C. Reilly and Toby Jones. Presented at the Cannes Film Festival, his Medieval imagery is as complex as the characters, recounted in a habitual fairy tale narrative yet remaining loyal to his dense style. It is a beautifully grotesque film, a visually rich fable with three female-dominated tableaux, all intertwined in the common thread of love and death. [caption id="attachment_459563" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Cannes[/caption] In the first segment, a queen (Salma Hayek) desperately wants a child. A necromancer tells the couple that the queen must eat the heart of an aquatic creature cooked by a maiden; if she eats it all, it will impregnate her. Despite his warning that with every new life comes a death, »

'Wayward Pines' showrunner Chad Hodge on building paranoia and offering 'The Truth'

14 May 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

TV audiences crave answers and there's nothing dedicated viewers fear more than mythology-driven series that threaten to stretch out mysteries indefinitely or, alternatively, run the risk of getting cancelled without ever revealing the truth. Fox's new drama "Wayward Pines" is definitely heavy on mystery. Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) checks into a small Idaho town on an investigation and soon begins to realize that very little in Wayward Pines is what it seems to be. So what makes Wayward Pines unusual? What secrets are the residents harboring? And who knows these answers? Well, one person who knows the answers is "Wayward Pines" showrunner Chad Hodge, who created The CW's "Runaway" and NBC's "Playboy Club" before discovering Blake Crouch's book and adapting it on spec as a potential 10-episode story back in 2013, before "Fargo" and "True Detective" made everybody in TV giddy on the event series model.

M. Night Shyamalan is making his TV debut with “Wayward Pines,” a 10-episode events series that premieres Thursday night on Fox.

Once he’s there, however, he learns he may never leave alive.

The show brings to life the books by Blake Crouch, adapted for television by showrunner-executive producer Chad Hodge. Shyamalan serves as exec producer and directed the first episode.
