Terrence Malick Vows to Return to More Structured Filmmaking: ‘I’m Backing Away From That Style Now’

6 April 2017 7:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Earlier this month, after Terrence Malick’s “Song to Song” debuted to very low numbers during its opening weekend, IndieWire asked film critics if audiences had finally lost their patience with the auteur director. It’s an understandable question given how polarizing Malick’s style has become in the years after “The Tree of Life.” His fragmented, wandering vision in “Song to Song” even forced some of his biggest advocates to question the direction of his career.

While Malick will never just abandon all of his trademark flourishes, it appears he’s finally going back to more structured storytelling with his next film. Rumor had it that “Radegund,” a WWII drama about conscientious objector Franz Jägerstätter, would be Malick’s most narrative-minded film in years, and the director outright confirmed it during a chat at Washington D.C. »

Second Opinion – I.T. (2016)

9 March 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I.T., 2016.

Directed by John Moore.

Starring Pierce Brosnan, James Frecheville, Anna Friel, Stefanie Scott, and Michael Nyqvist.

Synopsis:

A wealthy tycoon finds his life has been taken over by an It consultant. He, his family and his home are under attack from all the technology that they take for granted.

It’s surprising that “from one of the writers of Terminator 2: Judgement Day” wasn’t plastered all over the marketing for Pierce Brosnan’s latest low-rent thriller romp, because William Wisher Jr.’s involvement is just about the only remotely promising thing this film has going for it. Then you remember T2 was 25 years ago and Wisher has since written Sylvester Stallone’s Judge Dredd and two Exorcist prequels nobody asked for. I.T., arriving amid little enthusiasm or reason to exist, is like-minded company.

Movie Review – I.T. (2016)

6 March 2017 5:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I.T., 2016

Directed by John Moore

Starring Pierce Brosnan, James Frecheville, Anna Friel, Stefanie Scott and Michael Nyqvist.

Synopsis:

A wealthy tycoon finds his life has been taken over by an It consultant.  He, his family and his home are under attack from all the technology that they take for granted.

He’s the geek that you’d ignore most of the time – until your pc gets the jitters and he suddenly becomes a hero, the guy who can restore normality in your life.  And yet, as the It guy works his magic, we usually don’t have a clue what he’s doing.  We just trust him.  Which makes him really powerful.

It also makes him a decent enough starting point for a film.  But it quickly loses its edge when it’s given perhaps the least inspired title of the year.  And, when it becomes apparent that about the »

Newswire: Now you can own your own John Wick murder pencil

23 February 2017 5:32 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One of the best moments from the first John Wick is when Michael Nyqvist’s Russian mob boss lays out just how badly his idiot son has screwed up, describing the moment when his recent carjacking victim John Wick killed three men with nothing but a pencil. The film’s sequel doubles down on that moment in one of its most wonderfully shocking sequences, making it clear: Don’t give Keanu Reeves’ deadpan hitman a writing implement if you really want to live.

Now, a fan vendor has ensured that lovers of the films can fill out their own perfectly bubbled Scantron of death. Based out of Austin, Forces Of Dorkness is selling John Wick: Chapter Two branded pencils, lovingly painted with all the red blood action fans crave. We can’t speak to how useful they are as writing implements—and $17 seems a little »

Stockholm-Based Production Company Reels in Swedish Cinema

10 February 2017 4:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

B-Reel Films, the hip Stockholm-based banner behind some of Scandinavia’s most ambitious films and TV shows, from Mikael Marcimain’s “Gentlemen” to Pernilla August’s “A Serious Game,” recently ventured into the ultra-competitive English-language movie landscape with Lisa Langseth’s “Euphoria,” starring Alicia Vikander, Eva Green and Charlotte Rampling, and is developing a flurry of more upscale projects.

B-Reel Films is coming off a busy start of the year, having just won two Swedish Guldbagge Awards (Sweden’s equivalent of the Oscars) for “A Serious Game” including supporting actor for Michael Nyqvist. And on the TV side, the shingle’s first Nordic noir series “Before We Die” launched to hit ratings on Sweden’s public broadcaster Svt.

The company has two movies in post: “Euphoria,” which reteams Langseth and Vikander after the critically acclaimed “Hotel,” as well “Bergman,” a feature-length doc about Ingmar Bergman directed by Jane Magnuson. The »

Terrence Malick Returns to WWII in First Look at ‘Radegund’

10 February 2017 9:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In just five weeks we’ll be getting a new film from Terrence Malick, but as we await the first trailer for Song to Song, the debut look at his next drama has now arrived. Returning to World War II after The Thin Red Line — albeit in a very different form — Radegund follows Austria’s Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), a conscientious objector who was put to death at the age of 36 for undermining military actions.

The cast also features Valerie Pachner, Michael Nyqvist, Matthias Schoenaerts, Jürgen Prochnow, and Bruno Ganz, and Variety has premiered the first image, which one can see above. “This is Malick returning to the top of his game in the telling of an extraordinary true story which has great resonance in today’s moral climate,” sales agent David Garrett says, who also confirms a 2017 premiere is the works, which is a rapidly fast turn-around in the world of Malick. »

In preparation for ‘Chapter Two’ here’s our A-z of ‘John Wick’

9 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of Chapter Two, here’s our A-z of the world of John Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017. The film is a sequel to 2014’s John Wick, the film that re-established Keanu Reeves as an A-List action star. The story told of a retired hit-man who found himself back in the seedy criminal world after his beloved dog, a gift from his deceased wife, was murdered. The film is all kinds of brilliant, perfectly blending various elements to create a real-life graphic novel.

But in case you’re a little rusty on the world of Wick we’ve compiled this handy A – Z guide.

A is for Assassins

For those not acquainted with the world of John Wick, it’s all about the underworld of hit-men and hit-women. The most decorated of these is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hit-man who managed to »

Official Synopsis And Cast List For Terrence Malick’s Radegund Revealed

23 January 2017 1:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a 2018 release window already in place, the official synopsis and cast list for Terrence Malick’s Radegund have now found their way online.

Word comes by way of Screen Daily, confirming that David Garrett’s Mister Smith Entertainment will handle international sales for Radegund which, it should be noted, is simply a working title for the time being and is therefore subject to change. Currently brewing in post-production, the film’s logline reveals that Malick’s wartime drama will chronicle the true story of Franz Jägerstätter, an Austrian farmer and conscientious objector who defied Hitler and followed his wife on the path of resistance.

Heralding Malick’s first WWII feature since The Thin Red Line, we understand Radegund‘s ensemble cast is headed up by August Diehl, Valerie Pachner, Matthias Schoenaerts, Bruno Ganz, Martin Wuttke, Maria Simon, Karin Neuhäuser, and Alexander Fehling. Contrary to previous reports, there’s no »

First clip for John Wick: Chapter Two is on familiar neutral ground

19 January 2017 6:19 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Here’s the first clip from John Wick 2 (as it’s more accurately John Wick: Chapter Two known) which sees our hero Keanu Reeves back as the title character on familiar ground returning to the neutral hotel where everyone is (vaguely!) safe.

The clip doesn’t show any of the epic action that we’ve seen in the trailers but does set the scene for what many are hoping will be one of the greatest sequels of recent years. The concierge Charon (Lance Reddick) is there once more to greet him and his dog before sending him up to The Manager.
