Quentin Tarantino’s 9 Strangest and Most Surprising Movie Projects

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When you think of Quentin Tarantino, classic films like “Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Django Unchained” certainly come to mind. But what about the critically reviled “Saturday Night Live” sketch adaptation “It’s Pat”? Or the Michael Bay Alcatraz action movie “The Rock”? Tarantino’s fingerprints have been all over the movies ever since his breakout debut in 1992, and some of his projects are way more bizarre than others.

‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Is Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year

21 August 2017 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some new Mexican box office history has been made as the comedy “Do it Like an Hombre” followed its 68.7 million Mexican pesos ($3.89 million) opening weekend with a two weekend total of $130.3 million pesos ($7.4 million), giving it the highest Mexican movie box office total of 2017, according to comScore.

In its first weekend, including a Thursday first-day bow, the film was the country’s second-highest Mexican release ever after the 2013 smash-hit “Instructions Not Included,” which holds the top spot, though off a Thursday rather than Friday opening. 2016’s “Que Culpe Tiene el Nino”? earned a three-day 65.6 million pesos ($3.7 million), according to comScore.

The recent success of local hits in Mexico has helped in recent years to justify a massive growth in the number of theaters across the country. It may also suggest a shift away from the near absolute choke-hold that Hollywood blockbusters, especially animated movies, have held on the region’s box offices for years. At »

Cate Blanchett in talks for Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls

16 August 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actress Cate Blanchett is in talks to join the cast of Eli Roth’s The House With a Clock in Its Walls.

The Amblin Entertainment venture will be directed by Eli Roth and would see Blanchett working alongside Jack Black.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls will be an adaptation of the 1973 horror novel by John Bellairs, a book which tells the story of an orphaned boy who moves in with his uncle. It turns out that the boy’s uncle is a mediocre witch, and the boy is propelled into a world of magic and danger; no more so than when he discovers a clock inside the house walls which is designed to usher in doomsday.

Jack Black will be playing the uncle in the movie. If Blanchett signs her deal she will be portraying Mrs. Zimmerman, a witch and the uncle’s neighbour/best friend.

Nicolas Lopez’s ‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Smashes 2017 Mexican Movie Records

12 August 2017 6:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Having directed Chilean smash hit “Sin Filtro,” Nicolás Lopez looks like he has done it again. But in a far bigger market than his native Chile and with a Spanish-language comedy which, distributed by Pantelion and starring Mauricio Ochmann (“El Chema”) and Aislinn Derbez (“Win It All”), has U.S. potential.

Bowing Aug.10 in Mexico, Lopez’s first Mexican movie as a director, “Hazlo como Hombre” (“Do It Like an Hombre”),  which Pantelion releases Sept. 1 in the U.S., opened No. 1 on Thursday, punching $591,537 at the Mexican box office, over double the biggest U.S. bow, “Baby Driver” ($239,565).

That’s also getting on for double the first-day box office trawl for “Que Culpa Tiene el Niño?” – Mexico’s biggest local hit of 2016, which went on to earn $14.4 million in Mexico.

These are just opening night figures. But they do raise the question of how much “Do It Like an Hombre” could gross not just in Mexico but »

Interview: Lloyd Kaufman on 18 Years of TromaDance, the State of Indie Filmmaking and Return To Return To Nuke ’Em High

11 August 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After five decades of being one of the biggest crusaders, innovators, and purveyors of independent genre filmmaking, the legendary Lloyd Kaufman shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Daily Dead recently had the pleasure of speaking with “Uncle Lloyd” about TromaDance 18, which kicks off this weekend in Manhattan, and he also discussed Return to Return to Nuke ’Em High, which is officially set to premiere later this year, and how the new Troma Now streaming service is giving fans access to an amazing array of indie horror films. Suffice to say, when it comes to fighting the good fight for indie cinema, Kaufman is still happy to be in the frontlines alongside Michael Herz and his Troma family more than 40 years now.

Congrats on another year of TromaDance. Can you talk about what the mission was when you guys first started this festival nearly two decades ago, and »

11 August 2017 5:23 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

After the Storm (Hirokazu Kore-eda)

Can our children pick and choose the personality traits they inherit, or are they doomed to obtain our lesser qualities? These are the hard questions being meditated on in After the Storm, a sobering, transcendent tale of a divorced man’s efforts to nudge back into his son’s life. Beautifully shot by regular cinematographer Yutaka Yamasaki, it marks a welcome and quite brilliant »

The Mist Season 1 Episode 8 Review – ‘The Law of Nature’

10 August 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the eighth episode of The Mist

Natural selection by supernatural forces seems to be par for the course this week in The Mist. With sexual tensions running high, food, water and common sense are left by the door. Familial clashes continue being unearthed and reconciliation seems a million miles off. All that can be guaranteed is the ever-present pea soup which lurks outside welcoming visitors.

Bandying around biblical hell fire, prophetic visions and words of mumbo jumbo wisdom Mrs. Raven carries on her mad as a barmpot routine. Laying down subtle threats, giving it the full on glassy-eyed bag lady rhetoric whilst reminding everyone that her naked stroll and survival had more to do with purity of spirit than anything else. As confessional panic leaks from every pore Raven takes full advantage and goes as far as humanly possible in taking the opportunity. By relying on spiritual »

Why the Woody Allen ‘Difficult People’ Parody Exposes the Power of His Legacy

9 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The news cycle surrounding Woody Allen these days tends to go as follows: Reminder of previous allegations, followed by announcement of new film, followed by talent in new project being asked about allegations, followed by new film receiving either critical acclaim or relative indifference, followed by new reminder of previous allegations.

Right now, we’re in the “announcement of new film” phase, with Tuesday’s casting of Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in Allen’s upcoming untitled feature film. But that same morning, Hulu premiered the most savage takedown yet of not just Woody Allen’s modern day work as an auteur, but the cult of personality around him.

Difficult People” in general and creator Julie Klausner in particular have never been shy about poking fun at certain topics the rest of Hollywood might consider taboo. Just consider the metric ton of jokes about Kevin Spacey’s sexuality »
