Limping, Lisping and Lobstering: Escaping Yorgos Lanthimos’ Hotel of Purity

25 June 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back when Greek auteur Yorgos Lanthimos first clambered barefaced upon the international stage with his daring Dogtooth, quite a few hastened to mention its striking resemblance to Arturo Ripstein’s similarly self-contained The Castle of Purity, made some 35 years earlier. In the wake of his first English-language effort The Lobster, one might even go further and compare all that Lanthimos has done thus far to Ripstein’s film: the imposed isolation behind walls that are both physical and psychological, creating a world whose structure is founded upon seemingly intransgressible rules and boundaries. Despite the jump in locale and language, The Lobster is very much a continuation or extension of the themes found in Dogtooth: the sequestered family abode is replaced by an isolated hotel complex; the overprotective father by a domineering hotel manager – the brilliant Olivia Colman. Perhaps the most significant difference, at least on first glance, is that »

24 June 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Meryl Streep is attempting to revive the debate over the Equal Rights Amendment, a proposal that gained steam during the dawn of the feminist movement in the 1970s, but never acquired the necessary votes to add it to the U.S. Constitution. Streep, however, isn’t totally selfless. She’s also promoting her new movie, “Suffragette.” Sarah Gavron directs based on a script by Abi Morgan. The film also stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Anne-Marie Duff. ...Read More »

James Bond goes to Mexico in the new Spectre clip

15 June 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

While James Bond is a prominent British icon, he’s never shied away from taking his spy antics to other parts of the world. In the latest entry to the franchise, eerily titled Spectre, Mr. Bond takes a trip to Mexico to experience the famous Day of the Dead festival.

First Spectre TV spot showcases new footage of Daniel Craig's 007

10 June 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The summer movie season is just starting to heat up, but that doesn’t mean we’re not already looking beyond the next few months to the return of 007 in Spectre in November.  The first extended TV spot for Daniel Craig’s latest outing as the dashing super spy offers up some never-before-seen footage from the film.

After rehashing a bit of what we saw in the previous teaser, we’re getting a look at some brand new footage from the film in the second half of the TV spot.

Christoph Waltz’s Franz Oberhauser remains in the shadows but we get brief glimpses of Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Dave Bautista and Naomie Harris.  Plus plenty of signature Bond action and chase sequences - by land, sea, or air – are all here to tide you over until the next trailer drops.

It may only be a 60 second look at Spectre, »

Bond Gets a Lot of Action in First 'Spectre' TV Spot

10 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Lights, camera, and action - lots and lots of action. And a second helping, just to be safe.

The first TV spot for the new James Bond movie, "Spectre," aired during last night's NBA finals game, and dazzled us with quite a bit of new footage not seen in the first teaser trailer. Most of it was heavy on the action - lots of explosions, car chases, exploding cars in chases, James Bond (Daniel Craig) punching people, people punching Bond.

There are also brief glimpses of other characters, including Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris); Q (Ben Whishaw); Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci as new Bond girls; and a shadowy Christoph Waltz as the big bad.

The TV spot doesn't explain much more in the way of the plot, other than it centers on some dark mystery from 007's past. As Moneypenny notes, "You've got a secret, something you can't tell anyone because you don't trust anyone. »

Bond is Back in Orange and Black in New 'Spectre' TV Spot

10 June 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't need to watch a trailer for Spectre to know I want to see the movie. Hell, the only thing watching a trailer could do is lower my expectations for the 24th James Bond film set to hit theaters on Nov. 6. That said, while I didn't watch this latest TV spot, I did skim through it for the above screen capture and I can't tell you how much I wish director Sam Mendes and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema (Interstellar) had gone with a different color palette for the shoot other than the same drenched-in-darkness, saturated-in-orange look Roger Deakins delivered in Skyfall. All three of the Bond films starring Daniel Craig, to this point, have had very distinct looks to them, which I've quite liked. If anything, with this one featuring the return of Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, you'd think it might go back to the look of Casino Royale. »

Daniel Craig's fourth outing as gentleman super spy James Bond is only a few months away, and a new extended TV spot for Spectre has just dropped, featuring plenty of new footage. Not least, the new spot shows Bond getting up close and personal with both his leading ladies, played by Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci. Christoph Waltz also stars as the villain, with Dave Bautista as his muscle, and Sherlock's Andrew Scott in a probably shady role. Returning cast members include Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Rory Kinnear.Sam Mendes returns to the director's chair following the monster success of Skyfall, with script duties once again falling to John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
