Seven Juries Will Award Prizes At 2014 Tribeca Film Fest
So while the news that neither "Birdman" nor "Inherent Vice" (our no. 10 and no. 1 most anticipated films of the year, respectively) will be showing in Cannes may have us casting our thoughts forward to the fall festival season, there are still quite a few key events on the cinephile calendar between now and then. Indeed, the Tribeca Film Festival starts this week, and while the line-up overall feels more muted in profile than some years, there's still plenty that has piqued our curiosity in its slate. The 13th iteration of the New York-based festival opens on Wednesday night and will run until Sunday 27th with 33 jurors presiding over the competitive sections, including Jeff Goldblum, Whoopi Goldberg, Lake Bell, Toni Collette, Nate Parker, Gary Ross, Catherine Hardwicke, Adepero Oduye, Heather Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Alfonso Arau, Christine Lahti, Anton Yelchin and Natasha Lyonne. We've seen a fair number of the selection already »

Two genre films are asking for your attention this week. On a wide release level, there's Oculus, the film by Mike Flanagan starring Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, and on a limited release level there's Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, with Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin and John Hurt. Both have received favorable reviews here at Shock. You can read my thoughts on Oculus right here. Ryan Larson weighed in on Only Lovers Left Alive here and I'm in total agreement with him. I love that movie.

With director Jim Jarmusch’s fantastic Only Lovers Left Alive opening this weekend in New York and Los Angeles, I recently landed an exclusive video interview with Tilda Swinton. In the film, set against the backdrop of Detroit and Tangiers, Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play two vampires who have been in love for centuries. As you can see in the trailer, Only Lovers Left Alive is loaded with great performances---not only Swinton and Hiddleston, but the rest of the cast including Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey Wright. If you live in either city, I absolutely recommend seeking it out. For more on the film, here's Phil's glowing review. During the interview, Swinton talked about how she got involved in the project, how much changed during the making of the film, setting the film in Detroit and Tangiers, the way she likes to work, preparing for a role, »

At first, a movie about vampires might sound like an odd fit for indie cult director Jim Jarmusch, but it actually makes perfect sense -- afer all, what better subject matter could there be for a director who's made a career out of exploring ennui?
So in Jarmusch's latest, "Only Lovers Left Alive," Tom Hiddleston stars as a world-weary vampire named Adam, hiding out in Detroit as a reclusive rock star, while his undead other half (Eve, naturally), played by Tilda Swinton, lives halfway across the world in Tangier, Morocco. Anton Yelchin, Adam's unwitting familiar/gofer Ian, and Mia Wasikowska as Eve's uncontrollable younger sister round out the small cast, and the result is a gorgeously shot and wickedly funny love story, packed with the same oddball charm and quirky characters on which Jarmusch has made his name.

Choreographer Greg Van Borssum posted a few photos of the cast for the $200 million "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros was developing back in 2007 with director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet). Check out the photos below. At the time, "Superman Returns" flopped in theaters, which is why the studio recast Superman with DJ Cotrona and hired Armie Hammer as Batman, despite the fact that Christian Bale was still playing the character in "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Other cast members included Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Not in the photos are Common as John Stewart (aka Green Lantern), Anton Yelchin as Wally West, Zoe Kazan as Iris West and Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth. The film obviously never happened and Warner Bros is now »
In a crumbling Detroit apartment, one of the world's last vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston), reunites with his ancient love, Eve (Tilda Swinton), in Jim Jarmusch's latest, Only Lovers Left Alive . A moody blend of drama, romance and horror, the film serves as a meditation on art, love and mortality, all delivered with Jarmusch's trademark deadpan wink. ComingSoon.net/ShockTillYouDrop.com sat down with Swinton to discuss her third project with the idyosyncratic filmaker and her portrayal of a centuries-old character. She also expounds upon the thematic relevance of filming in Detroit and the relationship between artistry and vampirism. Check out the conversation in the video player below!

A few days ago we had a chance to sit down and talk to Tilda Swinton about her upcoming vampire flick “Only Lovers Left Alive”. The film also co-stars Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey Wright.
The film is set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
Have a look at our Exclusive interview with Tilda Swinton below.
“Only Lovers Left Alive” is in theaters April 11th.

Joe Dante's new comedy horror 'Burying the Ex' has reached its post-production stages. And along with this production shift comes a couple of stills, courtesy of Styd, from the project based on the original short film by scribe Alan Trezza. The two images feature one of actor Anton Yelchin ('Star Trek into Darkness') and co-star, and all round hottie, Alexandra Daddario ('Texas Chainsaw Massacre') and the other is a a more highly defined version of a previous image first previewed by Entertainment Weekly featuring Yelchin and Ashley Greene ('Twilight'). Greene plays Evelyn the ex-girlfriend of Yelchin's character Max who accidentally dies in a freak accident only to rise from the grave to win back her boyfriend. Check out the images below. »
Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum is offering up a piece of 'what if' Hollywood history today, as he shares photos of the Justice League cast assembling for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's canceled adaptation.
Way back in 2007, after Superman Returns proved to be a disappointment, Warner Bros. planned to move forward on a Justice League movie that recast the Man of Steel with D.J. Cotrona and gave us a new Batman in Armie Hammer, even though Christian Bale was in the midst of his The Dark Knight trilogy at the same time. Also seen in the first photo are (from bottom) director George Miller, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. Next row finds Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, stuntman Greg van Borssum, and producer Barrie M. Osborne (The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers »
As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »
Back in December we got our first look at Burying the Ex, the new film from master of horror Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole). As the zombie flick gets ready to burst up from the depths and emerge at Cannes, we got our hands on a brand new image today...

Based on a short film of the same name, the Alan Trezza-penned script follows Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together.

Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" is the New York director's best film in a long time. When he's good, he's very very good, but some of his work can feel indulgent and thin (see "Limits of Control"). But this super-cool vampire romance hits on all cylinders. (It's at 73 on Metacritic.) "Only Lovers Left Alive" stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as exquisitely cool ancient vampires still in love after centuries--perhaps because they live on different continents. He morosely cruises the ghostly streets of a ruined, deserted Detroit (an inspired location), creates lush electronic music and collects vintage instruments provided by his discreet local dealer (Anton Yelchin). She roams the narrow lanes of Tangier to meet her beloved quality blood supplier (John Hurt). She finally pays her lover a visit in Detroit, where they are joined for a time by her mischievous sister (Mia Wasikowska). In this must-see romance, »

It's no surprise Jim Jarmusch's vampire love story Only Lovers Left Alive isn't a vampire film in the same vein as anything you've seen come out of Hollywood. These vampires don't glitter and they've found more conventional ways to sate their blood lust than risking exposure or worse by draining human beings. There is, however, an overall sense of loneliness and the characters are quite moody as most vampires tend to be. Their disgruntled, "hate the world" nature speaks to the film's larger theme, and while it isn't exactly ground-breaking, in terms of execution, it's quietly entertaining. The story centers on centuries old vampire lovers Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), the first of many recognizable/metaphorical/playful names used within the narrative. Though, when it comes to these two names Jarmusch credits his inspiration as not from the Bible, but from Mark Twain's "The Diaries of »

Joe Dante is in post-production on Burying the Ex, a new horror-comedy starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario. Today, we've landed a pair of first-look pics featuring the cast. Burying the Ex follows Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare.

When Only Lovers Left Alive was announced I think it was hard to not get at least a little bit excited. Here was have Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin) - two powerhouse actors playing vampires in a world crafted by the always underlyingly powerful Jim Jarmusch, the man behind Ghost Dog, Dead Man and Broken Flowers, among others. That’s a lot of heavy hitter roster to begin with. Throw in the always lovable Anton Yelchin (Fright Night), the rising star Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) and the infamous John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy) and you have a stacked deck. So the question was could the film possibly live up to the hype that the cast induces? Absolutely.
