Darren Aronofsky reveals gruesome first look poster of Jennifer Lawrence in Mother!

15 May 2017 4:47 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Darren Aronofsky is all set to make his directorial comeback with a psychological thriller laden with an all-star ensemble cast in Mother (or mother! as it seems to be) so it only made sense that Aronofsky took to Twitter on Mother’s Day to reveal the first look image from the upcoming film.

The image, in the form of an illustrated poster, is pretty gruesome, but would you expect any less from the man who brought us Black Swan with Natalie Portman – who he recently worked with on last year’s Jackie where he took the chair of producer. The poster depicts a fresh-faced Jennifer Lawrence in an angelic pose surrounded by lilac flowers with an innocent yet pained expression as she holds out her bloodied hands which contain her heart which we can assume she tore from her own chest.

Mother is written, directed and produced by Aronofsky, »

Movie Review – Ghost In The Shell (2017)

1 April 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghost in the Shell, 2017.

Directed by Rupert Sanders.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael PittPilou Asbæk, Chin HanJuliette Binoche and Michael Wincott.


In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

The live-action adaptation of 1995’s ground-breaking anime Ghost in the Shell arrives on a tidal wave of controversy; fans are well aware of the concessions that come with adapting Japanimation into a $110 million 12A-rated movie, and that says nothing of the perceived “whitewashing” outrage regarding Scarlett Johansson’s casting as a character who was Asian in the source material.

Though the hardcore faithful are likely to nitpick it to death regardless, it’s an unexpected pleasure to report that Hollywood’s Ghost in the Shell gets much more right than it does wrong, »

Darren Aronofsky-Jennifer Lawrence Horror Film Mother! Set For October

1 April 2017 7:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CinemaCon – the annual convention of film exhibitors – always proves to be a fountain of information regarding upcoming releases, as studios and distributors seek to get theatre owners and chains excited about their future wares. This year’s event has not disappointed – particularly since Paramount has finally begun to drop some hints about the Darren Aronofsky-Jennifer Lawrence collaboration we’ve been hearing rumours about for such a long time. We now know the film will be called Mother!, and will arrive in time for Halloween.

The reason this project is so highly anticipated is that it represents both a break from the established ‘norm’ for Darren Aronofsky, as well as a return to past success. The director has a tendency to return to the some collaborators multiple times – including Jennifer Connelly, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis, and composer Clint Mansell. This time, however, the filmmaker will be working with Johann Johannsson for the original score, »

'Ghost in the Shell' Review: Anime Rehash Upgrades Software, Loses the Soul

31 March 2017 8:22 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nestled between William Gibson's claim-staking 1984 novel Neuromancer and the Wachowskis' gamechanging The Matrix, Mamoru Oshii's 1995 cops-and-cyborgs tale Ghost in the Shell is almost assuredly better known than widely seen – next to Akira, it's one of the few anime titles that folks who don't know an Astro-Boy from a Dragonball Z can namecheck. Watch it now, and you'll see how Oshii's manga adaptation both grafted earlier influences onto its source material and influenced countless works that came after it. Like its main character, the movie caused ripples even when its presence seemed invisible. »

Second Opinion – Ghost in the Shell (2017)

31 March 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghost in the Shell, 2017.

Directed by Rupert Sanders.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, Michael Carmen Pitt, Peter Ferdinando, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Anamaria Marinca, and Chin Han.


In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

Ghost in the Shell is a live-action Anime. Right about now you might be saying “No shit, Sherlock, it’s based on a revered Japanese Manga and popular 1995 Anime movie” and other such relevant information, but what I mean by my lede is that this is the first film that actually looks and feels like a successful transition from Japanese artistry to American Hollywood film. Everything from the visuals, to the appearances of individual characters, to the cyberpunk fantasy setting, all the way »

Film Review: Scarlett Johannson in ‘Ghost in the Shell’

28 March 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Ghost in the Shell,” the mind and soul of a brilliant original being are extracted, preserved, and rehoused in a sleek, expensively built, technologically advanced new body, enhancing her original abilities at some cost to her identity. That’s the premise, of course, of the cult manga created by Masamune Shirow in 1989, but it’s also an apt enough description of what has happened with director Rupert Sanders’ fast, flashy, frequently ravishing live-action transmutation.

Spectacularly honoring the spirit and aesthetic of Mamoru Oshii’s beloved animated adaptations without resorting wholly to slavish cosplay, this is smart, hard-lacquered entertainment that may just trump the original films for galloping storytelling momentum and sheer, coruscating visual excitement — even if a measure of their eerie, melancholic spirit hasn’t quite carried over to the immaculate new carapace. Box office returns should be muscular, minting what could be one of the more enticing franchises »

Scarlett Johansson continues to prove her action hero chops with “Ghost in the Shell”

27 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

There are two types of Scarlett Johansson roles that we’ve been getting over the past few years. One is affecting work in things like Her or Under the Skin, while the other is in action films, both of the Marvel ilk, as well as things like this week’s release Ghost in the Shell. I don’t mean this as an insult though. Johansson is possibly the best actress out there at transitioning between tugging at your emotions and entertaining you by kicking some ass. As such, this new release should continue raising her star wattage, paving the way for one of her future dramatic outings to finally get her that elusive Academy Award nomination. Ghost in the Shell is a science fiction / action film based on a very well regarded Japanese comic book. Set in the near future, it follows Major (Johansson), who is is the first of her kind. »

Ghost In The Shell (2017) review

17 March 2017 6:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scarlett Johansson stars in the cyberpunk anime adaptation, Ghost In The Shell. Here's our review...

Think about some of the techno-thrillers that emerged in the mid-90s: Sandra Bullock vehicle The Net, say, or Michael Douglas-Demi Moore harassment-in-the-workplace Vr opus, Disclosure. Watch them now, and they look almost painfully quaint.

Now take a look at Ghost In The Shell, director Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s manga; 22 years on, and it’s barely aged a day. It imagines a future where human and machine have long since fused; typists can have their hands replaced with ten-fingered robot limbs capable of banging out 1,000 words per second. Minds can be augmented for faster learning; eyes can be replaced with more powerful optical sensors. Yet in this future Tokyo, where humanity is on the cusp of leaving its body for a life in cyberspace, there’s a growing sense »

Scarlett Johansson is Reborn in New Trailer for ‘Ghost in the Shell’

13 February 2017 4:46 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive,” Scarlett Johansson told Marie Claire, speaking out for the first time about her cast in in Ghost in the Shell. “Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that — the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”

Ahead of a release this March, Paramount has now released the second full-length trailer, which gets more into the story of how Johansson’s character is reborn as a human-cyborg hybrid, as well highlights a great deal of new action. With a cast also featuring Pilou Asbaek, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, and Michael Pitt, as well as a score by Clint Mansell (The Fountain, Black Swan) check out the new trailer below.

Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd Head to the Future in First Images From Duncan Jones’ ‘Mute’

6 January 2017 8:22 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After entering the world of large-scale fantasy with last year’s Warcraft, director Duncan Jones is returning to sci-fi for his next film, but this time with a smaller scope. His long-gestating futuristic project Mute finally went into production last year, and ahead of a release on Netflix in 2017, the first images and new synopsis have arrived.

Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux, it follows a mute bartender who has to track down his girlfriend in a near-future Berlin.

Check out the official synopsis and new images (above and below) for the film featuring a score from Clint Mansell.

Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo »

Listen to the Best Scores and Soundtracks of 2016

2 January 2017 7:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As Martin Scorsese once said, “Music and cinema fit together naturally. Because there’s a kind of intrinsic musicality to the way moving images work when they’re put together. It’s been said that cinema and music are very close as art forms, and I think that’s true.” Indeed, the right piece of music — whether it’s an original score or a carefully selected song — can do wonders for a sequence, and today we’re looking at the 35 films that best expressed this notion this year.

From seasoned composers (e.g. Carter BurwellClint MansellCliff Martinez, and the Kluges) to accomplished musicians (e.g. Mica Levi and Scott Walker), as well as a smattering of soundtracks (e.g. 20th Century Women and American Honey), each musical example perfectly transported us to the world of the film.

Check out our rundown of the top 35, which includes streams to »
