Valerian Comic-Con Footage Description Promises Fun, Insane Sci-Fi

21 July 2016 7:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past few years, Comic-Con has become dominated more by television than movies, with several huge TV shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead moving into Hall H. This year is no different, with several major movie studios skipping Sdcc. But there are still plenty of big movies to get excited about. Earlier today, the Con got off to a rousing start with the Hall H panel for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, with fans so impressed by the footage they saw that they gave director Luc Besson and stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne a standing ovation.

Entertainment Weekly reports that over seven minutes of footage was shown to the crowd, even though this sci-fi thriller only wrapped production just five weeks ago. There were four scenes in total that were shown, and even though the visual effects were largely unfinished, the crowd »

EuropaCorp and Luc Besson presented seven minutes of footage from Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets at the San Diego Comic Con today and the crowd literally went wild.

From the first reactions coming in from Twitter, the crowd was stunned with what they saw and that makes me extremely pleased.

There was also a panel with Director Luc Besson and stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne.

Synopsis:

Time-traveling agent Valerian is sent to investigate a galactic empire, along with his partner Laureline.

New Image For Valerian Places Dane DeHaan In The Driving Seat

21 July 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mere hours before Valerian lights up Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, EuropaCorp has premiered a new image for the Luc Besson sci-fi that places Dane DeHaan in the driving seat.

DeHaan, who made his breakout in Josh Trank’s Chronicle before continuing that superhero streak in Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise, will take point as the title character in Besson’s ambitious adaptation, one that mines inspiration from the eponymous comic book series.

Valerian is one half of a pair of special time-travelling operatives, a title DeHaan’s lead shares with Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad), who is on board in the role of Laureline. Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, Rihanna, 10 Cloverfield Lane star John Goodman and Rutger Hauer currently line the supporting roles.

While there’s no question that Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets harbors truckloads of promise, big-budget, fantastical science fiction that plays well with the »

Why Steven Soderbergh Deserves an Emmy for Directing ‘The Knick’

20 July 2016 1:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before “The Knick” scatters its characters to the four winds, Steven Soderbergh offers one last, literal reminder that he thinks outside the box. When coarse ambulance driver Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan) seeks counsel from a priest, his feet protrude from the confessional, and though his voice remains as sharp as if he were beside us, Soderbergh replaces the traditional depiction of penance—faint light filtering through the partition, illuminating a face wracked by guilt—with a far more ambiguous one.

Via a series of long, still compositions, venturing into the barren aisles and empty pews, the camera edges toward the opposite end of the cavernous nave, returning to the image of the Irishman’s shoes only when he reaches his reason for being there. In his slightly forlorn brogue, Cleary asks for a prayer that the disgraced Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour) accept his hand in marriage: He wants her to be his wife, »

New King Arthur: Legend of the Sword images feature Jude Law and Charlie Hunnam

14 July 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since its release date was pushed from this summer to next year, updates on Guy Ritchie’s action/adventure epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (formerly titled Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur) have been scarce, but today, Warner Bros. (via Entertainment Weekly) has released two never-before-seen images from the film. The photos feature stars Charlie Hunnam as the titular king and Jude Law as his villainous uncle Vortigern…

The outlet describes Legend of the Sword as a blend between a high fantasy and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Arthur as “dirty and beat up and rugged,” just like many of Ritchie’s characters. On Arthur, Hunnam said, “He’s a bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. There’s definitely a harder edge than people would imagine.”

How ‘The Knick’ Got More Extravagant with Production and Costume Design (Emmy Watch)

29 June 2016 3:46 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In season two of “The Knick,” while pioneering surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen) continues battling personal demons, there’s an expansion into the higher echelon of New York affluence in both production and costume design. This helps broaden the tension between social progress and class disparity in 1901.

This gave production designer Howard Cummings greater opportunities to explore high society in real New York locations. He ventured from Yonkers to Staten Island and everywhere else in between, and even crept into Long Island.

“In season two, we shot in every borough, including a burning building in Yonkers as the new Knick hospital under construction,” explained Cummings. “Location found a Victorian-looking insurance records warehouse built in 1901 and was never completed. But the interior was all brick and fire proof, and they actually set fire to it and shot that at the very end of the schedule.”

Cummings also benefited by the light »

Lego, Transformers, and the rise of the brand movie

Emojis. Playmobil. Lego. Brands seem to be here to stay in movies. Ryan looks at its rise and rise...

On paper, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Curse Of The Black Pearl probably shouldn’t have been a hit. Earlier movies based on Disney’s theme park rides certainly hadn’t been a success - least of all The Country Bears, a family film released a year before Pirates and largely shunned by audiences. Disney boss Michael Eisner moaned at Pirates’ steep $140m bill. Did it have to be so expensive? And could Johnny Depp - hardly known as a bankable star - really lead the movie to box office glory?

The answer was a resounding yes; released in the summer of 2003, Pirates Of The Caribbean made over $650m worldwide. Pirates also appeared to break two curses in one blow: first, it proved that adventure movies set on the »

Great Moments in Gay - Defiant Humanity in "Bent"

15 June 2016 9:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

For Pride month, we're celebrating our favorite queer moments in cinema. Here's guest contributor Steven Fenton...

Bent is the story of two men who fall in love while imprisoned in Dachau concentration camp during WWII. When the original play premiered in 1979 it made waves for its powerful depiction of Nazi persecution of homosexuals. By the time the film was released eighteen years later, the AIDS epidemic had ravaged the global gay community, giving further significance to the story’s exploration of survival and freedom.

In the camp, Max (Clive Owen) and Horst (Lothaire Bluteau) are assigned the sisyphean task of hauling stones from one rubble pile to another. On a miserably hot day, Horst attempts to distract Max from the maddening heat and labor. [More...]
