Special Powers and an Alien Presence with Sci-fi Thriller Rupture

11 December 2015 3:48 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

A few details are emerging for the sci-fi thriller Rupture. The film, starring Noomi Rapace and Peter Stormare, was presented at Cannes earlier this year. Now, the film is nearing completion. And, a film poster and synopsis have been released for Rupture. The film also stars Michael Chiklis and Lesley Manville. A preview for this mysterious thriller is hosted here. Events in the story are not as they first appear to be. A single mother, Renee (Rapace), is kidnapped, by a group of strangers. Taken to a laboratory, she is told that she has a special ability - to rupture. Now, she is transforming into something much more sinister. The film's first poster is slightly subdued. Renee looks skyward towards an alien presence, which is mentioned in the film's official synopsis. A still from the film, at the Ambi Distribution website, also shows Renee in an awkward position.

River Season 1 Review

23 November 2015 9:36 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All six episodes of “River” are now streaming on Netflix.

Upon first glance, BBC One and Netflix’s River feels a bit like a Mad Libs version of a prestige drama. Part character study and part crime story (with a dash of the supernatural), the series makes use of tropes and character archetypes that are well-tread territory in the hour-long landscape. A Difficult Genius hell-bent on avenging the death of a loved one? Check. A sardonic, eager-to-please (and diverse to boot) sidekick? Check. Add in a wise, compassionate boss able to see past our genius’ eccentricities, and you’ve got all the makings of a successful police procedural – as well as most cable heavyweights.

Despite River’s willingness to exploit the wheel rather than reinvent it, the series does manage to distinguish itself as more than just a carbon copy of shows we’ve already seen.

For starters, River is »

River: Season One DVD Review

16 November 2015 11:42 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Writer: Abi Morgan

Cast: Stellan Skarsgård, Nicola Walker, Lesley Manville, Adeel Akhtar, Eddie Marsan

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 349 min

Special Features: ‘The Making Of River’, ‘Creating Manifests’, ‘Being River’, Deleted Scenes

You’d be forgiven for presuming Stellan Skarsgård had starred in his fair share of cop shows. With Scandinavian crime dramas all the rage in recent years and the Swedish star possessing an air of gravitas seemingly perfect for a Detective role, it’s an unquestionably fair assumption. Yet despite a career spanning more than five decades and notable roles in the likes of Good Will Hunting, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Avengers Assemble to name just a few, the Swedish star has managed to avoid that particular genre until now. That being said, River certainly isn’t your standard British crime drama.

The first foray into the genre for in-demand writer Abi Morgan (Suffragette, Shame, The Iron Lady »

Stellan Skarsgård is haunted in Abi Morgan’s engrossing new BBC detective drama, River. Spoilers…

This review contains spoilers.

As a TV detective, you’re no-one in today’s world if you’re not a) haunted by your past, b) suffering from some form of psychological disorder, or c) Scandinavian. Enter Stellan Skarsgård’s John River, pulling an impressive triple whammy in Abi Morgan’s engrossing new BBC crime series.

While his peers are only figuratively haunted by dead partners and unsolved cases, Det. River literally sees dead people. They’re not quite ghosts—he doesn’t believe in ghosts—but rather Six Feet Under-style ‘manifests’ only visible to him. (Trauma-induced hallucinations is probably the technical term, but when was the last time you booked into a Lucky Voice booth with your trauma-induced hallucination and belted out a disco classic?)

River’s manifests are both pals and pests: former partner Det. »

Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism movie review: you are getting very angry…

13 August 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This desperately terrible children’s fantasy is an unpleasant mishmash of dated slapstick, unwittingly sinister adventure, and icky magic. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

From its frankly amazing all-star, Anglophile-favorites cast — Emily Watson, Dominic Monaghan, Celia Imrie, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Miller, Lesley Manville; plus Joan Collins — to the font used in its title design, Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism would like you to believe you are in for some Harry Potter-style awesomeness. Be not fooled. This desperately terrible children’s fantasy, based on the first book in the Ya series by Georgia Byng, is an unpleasant mishmash of hopelessly dated over-the-top slapstick, orphan-in-the-big-city adventure that ranges from unlikely to dangerous to unwittingly sinister, and icky magic that is meant to be charming and is instead deeply disturbing. »

Ioncinephile of the Month: Lance Edmands’ Top Eight Films….

27 February 2015 6:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever wondered what are the films that inspire the next generation of visionary filmmakers? As part of our monthly Ioncinephile profile, we ask the filmmaker the incredibly arduous task of identifying their top ten favorite films of all time. As is the case with some of our previous profiled folks, sometimes we don’t receive a set ten, in this case, Lance Edmands‘ (his feature debut Bluebird gets released theatrically today via the Factory 25 Folks) delivered a hard eight. Here are Lance’s top eight, in his own words…

Making a list of my top ten films of all time is a next-to-impossible task for me. That list is constantly growing, shifting, evolving, and is probably closer to a hundred films than to ten. For me, it’s probably more relevant to list the films that inspired Bluebird specifically. That said, many of these films are also on my list of all-time favorites, »
