Mads Mikkelsen has been cast as the lead in a survival thriller movie entitled Arctic, as reported by Deadline.
Enjoying the most successful spell of his career — all starting with the title role in NBC’s Hannibal, and continuing that success with last year’s high profile roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Doctor Strange — Mads is now setting off for colder climates to star in a new survival thriller.
Mikkelsen will be reunited with his Hannibal executive producer Martha De Laurentiis on the project, which will tell the story of a man stranded in the Arctic, who is then forced, after his rescue falls through, to either return to his camp or venture forward for potential salvation.
Arctic will come via Armory Films who had their Sundance flick »

Production is underway on the story centred on a man stranded in the Arctic, who is finally about to be rescued.
After a tragic accident, his opportunity is lost and he must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his camp or embark on a deadly trek through the unknown for potential salvation.
Penna also co-wrote the script, which is about a man stranded in the Arctic who must decide whether to remain in his camp or embark on a deadly trek, according to Deadline. Arctic is being produced by Armory Films, Union Entertainment Group, and Pegasus Pictures, and will star Mads Mikkelsen, who also headlined NBC’s Hannibal series.

Stranded in the Arctic, Mads Mikkelsen must fight to survive. Ticket sold! Admittedly, I'm an easy mark for anything involving Mads Mikkelsen, whose career I have happily followed ever since seeing him in Flickering Lights (2000). Others here at ScreenAnarchy go back even further, to his breakout role in Nicolas Winding Refn's Pusher (1996), a lacerating, brutal movie in which Mikkelsen is something of a phenom. Even as he made more polished films like The Green Butchers and Adam's Apples, he started to catch the attention of Hollywood, leading to his international breakthrough in Casino Royale. In recent years, he made the diabolical TV show Hannibal and appeared in 2016 as a delicious villain in Doctor Strange and a heroic father in Rogue One. Next...

Mads Mikkelsen is set to follow-up Doctor Strange, Star Wars: Rogue One, and Hannibal, by starring in survival thriller, Arctic. Directed by Joe Penna, Arctic will be produced by Armory Films, with Martha De Laurentiis serving as Executive Producer. De Laurentiis previously worked with Mikkelsen on Hannibal and it’s a partnership that clearly works.
The film has been shot in the beautiful outdoors in the Icelandic Mountains, during what was one of their snowiest and coldest winters. The reason for this extreme location is that Iceland itself will be a character within the film. The main story surrounds a man stranded in the Arctic; he’s just about to receive his long awaited rescue when there’s a tragic accident. He must then make the ultimate decision – should he remain in the relative safety of his camp, or does he embark on a deadly trek through the unknown? »

Is it me or does Mads Mikkelsen looks a hell of a lot like Dwayne Johnson in this picture? I think I’m 100% right and frankly don’t care if you all disagree. Speaking of Mads Mikkelsen, anything this guy is going to be in is a project I’ll likely want to see. I think it’s safe to say that ever since Hannibal his acting prowess has been in demand. With regards to his latest project Deadline has just reported on what it’s going to be. Mikkelsen has been tapped as the lead in survival thriller Arctic, with Joe Penna attached

Fancy seeing Mads Mikkelsen trying to survive in the Arctic? You might just be in luck...
The premise? A man stranded in the Arctic is about to get his long-awaited rescue, only for the opportunity to slip through his fingers. With no rescue coming, the man must decide whether to remain at his camp or start off across the tundra in the hopes of something better. That man will be played by Mikkelsen.
It's nice to see Mikkelsen getting a less antagonistic role. After Casino Royale, the Danish actor tends to get cast as the bad guy (his performance in the extraordinary The Hunt shows just what he can do). Who knows if the man will make it out of the Arctic, »

Just back from the 2017 TCM Classic Movie Festival with a few thoughts and thoughts about thoughts. I certainly held my reservations about this year’s edition, and though I ultimately ended up tiring early of flitting about from theater to theater like a mouse in a movie maze (it happens to even the most fanatically devoted of us on occasion, or so I’m told), there were, as always, several things I learned by attending Tcmff 2017 as well.
1) TCM Staffers Are Unfailingly Polite And Helpful
Thankfully I wasn’t witness, as I have been in past years, to any pass holders acting like spoiled children because they had to wait in a long queue or, heaven forbid, because they somehow didn’t get in to one of their preferred screenings. Part of what makes the Tcmff experience as pleasant as it often is can be credited to the tireless work »

Fans were finally able to pick up last year's blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Blu-ray and DVD, following a successful theatrical release that took home $531.7 million domestic and 1.05 billion worldwide. Once the home video release was announced, many fans were disappointed that there would be no deleted scenes, with director Gareth Edwards explaining that there were never any full scenes cut from the film during post-production, only tiny parts of existing scenes. For those searching for more insight into this beloved story, Marvel debuted the first issue of their Rogue One comic book adaptation this week, which features several scenes that weren't featured in the movie.
Earlier this year, writer Jody Hauser revealed that some bits and pieces of footage that director Gareth Edwards didn't include in his film, will be used for this Rogue One comic, along with moments from the Rogue One novelization that will be included in this comic. »

What is it? A bus driver writes poetry in his spare time about the world and stuff.
Why see it? The brief summation above is pretty much accurate in describing the whole of Jim Jarmusch’s latest, but it doesn’t begin to capture the warmth, humor, and humanity the film delivers. Adam Driver plays the title role and creates a character far removed from the easily antagonized and disgruntled ones he’s best known for. His Paterson is a simple man of simple pleasures, but while most films would mock or sideline him here he’s embraced. Even better, his demeanor and perception of the world are remarkably calming and infectious »

Let’s analyze the new world Bryan Fuller is bringing to our TV screens.
The promotional posters for Starz’s American Gods feature the real-life manifestations of Neil Gaiman’s original characters. From Shadow Moon to Mr. Nancy to Easter, each of the characters are framed in a world that reflects their (deceptive) personalities. However, while the backgrounds of each characters’ visual profile differs, the letters that are placed centre-frame do not.
These letters form “Omg,” being both a play on the show’s name as well as an apt reaction to its opening titles, which Starz recently released one month before American Gods’ premiere on April 30th.

Star Wars fans can now enjoy Rogue One from the comforts of their couch as the first-ever Star Wars Story hit VOD last month before coming to Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand on April 4. To celebrate, Ryan J. Downey headed to Ilm to meet up with some of the team behind this thrilling sci-fi adventure to explore new secrets and learn more details about the making of the latest Star Wars movie.
On hand to discuss this latest entry in the official Star Wars cinematic canon were Rogue One star Alan Tudyk, who plays K-2So in the movie, along with VFX Supervisor John Knoll, who created the story, and Animation Supervisor Hal Hickel. You can watch them discuss the movie at length in the exclusive video below.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, 2016.
Directed by Gareth Edwards.
The first standalone Star Wars movie is out in a Blu-ray + DVD + digital copy set that has an okay batch of bonus materials. If you’re hoping that the deleted footage from the various Rogue One trailers will make an appearance here, you’ll be disappointed.
I was looking forward to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story one even more than The Force Awakens. Like John Knoll, who pitched the movie to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and who shows up quite a bit in the bonus materials in this Blu-ray release, I was always intrigued by the theft of the Death Star plans that was mentioned in the scroll at the beginning of Star Wars.
The wide variety of ancillary stories that showed up in novels, »
