Terrence Malick used to be known for taking his time between projects; in 1973, his film Badlands was released, followed by Days of Heaven five years later and The Thin Red Line two decades after that. However, ever since The Tree of Life in 2011, Malick has been pumping out films much quicker.
From 2015 until now, three Malick-directed movies (including two versions of his Voyage of Time documentary) have been released, and within the next few years, two more are on the way. One of those upcoming projects is a World War II drama, his first since The Thin Red Line, entitled Radegund.
Producer Philip Lee, one of the backers of Radegund, gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter where the film got a brief mention. The outlet confirmed that the film is slated for a 2018 release, meaning that it will come out the year after 2017’s Weightless, which stars Ryan Gosling, »

Last November, we reported that Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with a sequel to their 2011 adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, entitled The Girl In the Spider's Web. However, this follow-up was being set up without director David Fincher or stars Daniel Craig (Mikael Blomkvist) and Rooney Mara (Lisbeth Salander). A report surfaced earlier this month that Don't Breathe director Fede Alvarez is being considered for this project, and today the director confirmed that he has signed on, and it will be his next project.
Fede Alvarez confirmed that The Girl In the Spider's Web will be his next project during an interview with ComingSoon.net. The studio decided to skip over author Stieg Larsson's remaining two novels, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, instead opting to adapt The Girl In the Spider's Web, a follow-up to Stieg Larsson »

Helmed by journalist-turned-director Matthew M. Ross, the striking, noir-esque drama finds the stoic actor in the role of Frank, an up-and-coming chef rising through the ranks of Las Vegas’ culinary scene. One evening, he meets Lola (Imogen Poots) a successful fashion designer, and the sparks begin to fly.
It’s a fiery, intense relationship, and the two spend some time revelling in the so-called Honeymoon Period. However, doubt begins to seep into Frank’s troubled mind after a man from Lola’s past stars making accusations against Poots’ high-flying designer. It effectively drives a wedge between the titular pair, and feelings of obsession, betrayal and even revenge begin to bubble to the surface – and fast.
Following its bow at Sundance, Frank & Lola and their dark, twisted love affair will descend into select theaters and »

"He played you. You got played." Paladin has released the official trailer for an indie drama titled Frank & Lola, a self-described "psychosexual noir romance about love and sex", set mostly in Las Vegas. Michael Shannon plays a top notch chef living in Las Vegas, who meets and hooks up with the fairly broken and troubled Lola, played by Imogen Poots. The two get mixed up in various sexual encounters while dealing with other personal problems in their own lives. I actually saw this at the Sundance Film Festival, where it premiered earlier this year, and it's fairly forgettable. The story is all over the place, it relies too much on the sex without much substance elsewhere, and the performances are fine but don't stand out in anyway. Also featuring Justin Long, Michael Nyqvist and Rosanna Arquette. If you're still curious, give it a look. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Matthew Ross' Frank & Lola, »

Appropriately enough for a movie titled “I.T.,” there is a preponderance of hard drives, software, satellite tracking networks, cutting-edge surveillance systems, and banks of large-format monitors on display throughout director John Moore’s slickly produced techno-thriller. But it falls largely on the shoulders of lead player Pierce Brosnan to provide a welcome human touch to the proceedings, with his persuasive portrayal of an analog man in a digital world.
With his Irish accent a tad more pronounced than usual, Brosnan plays Mike Regan, a private aviation tycoon who’s poised to expand his business with a new Uber-style app that will allow aircraft owners to sublet their jets. Normally, Regan is not a man who’s comfortable with innovative technology; truth to tell, he often needs help from his wife Rose (Anna Friel) just to operate the coffee maker in their lavishly appointed “smart home.” And he’s extremely uncomfortable »

Actor Pierce Brosnan has had a busy year so far. He previously starred in the dark thriller “Urge” as a mysterious nightclub owner who introduces his friends to a new designer drug and drags them into a deadly trap. Now, he stars in another action thriller “I.T.” as Mike Regan, a successful, self-made man with a state-of-the-art “smart home,” but when his I.T. consultant Ed (James Frecheville) starts stalking his daughter and threatening his entire life, he’s drawn into a complex cat-and-mouse game where the normal rules don’t apply. The film also stars Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies”), Stefanie Scott (“Flipped”), and Michael Nyqvist (“John Wick”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Why film a love story from 1912? That’s one of the questions asked by Swedish actress-writer-director Pernilla August when talking about her latest feature, “A Serious Game,” adapted from Hjalmar Söderberg’s novel. Film screened at the Norwegian Intl. Film Festival, which ran Aug. 20-26 in Haugesund, Norway.
August has a good answer for that: “Söderberg’s novel is a real classic, and everybody who has been in love will emotionally recognize the characters. It is also existential, about how we make our choices in life; I have been around for a long time, so I can identify both with Lydia, Arvid and Dagmar,” said August at the Norwegian Intl. Film Festival in Haugesund.
Set in Stockholm at the beginning of the 20th century, the film follows the love-at-first sight love story of Lydia, the daughter of a landscape painter, and Arvid, a young journalist. But the time is wrong: »
