This year’s “Map to the Stars” marks the second straight time David Cronenberg has worked with former “Twlight” hearthrob Robert Pattinson and the third time with Sarah Gadon, who first appeared in “A Dangerous Method” alongside the director’s previous muse, Viggo Mortensen. In the run-up to that 2011 historical film, Cronenberg took part in a short video – along with co-star Michael Fassbender – where he revealed his thoughts on the creative process. Spanning just over five minutes long and shot around the time of the Venice Film Festival, the short video is still illuminating despite its short length. In point of fact, when asked about where his ideas for films come from, the Canadian director said that “a film can come from anywhere: from a newspaper article, from a dream, from a nightmare, from a joke.” It’s not a lot but it’s nice espresso shot of Cronenberg should you need one. »

Richard Linklater on the set of BoyhoodPhoto: IFC Films If you're not yet familiar with Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood that's something you're going to want to remedy sooner rather than later. Filming began in 2002 when Linklater cast seven-year-old Ellar Coltrane as Mason and began work on a project that would take twelve years to complete. Coltrane stars as Mason as snapshots of the young boy's life were captured each and every year with Ethan Hawke playing his father who, before the film even begins, has divorced his mother (Patricia Arquette). Mason lives with his mother and sister (Richard Linklater's own daughter, Lorelei Linklater) and the film bounces through time as Mason goes from elementary school to his very first day in college. It's a film as unique as they come and another showcase for the writer/director that brought us films such as Dazed and Confused, School of Rock »

"Despite the overall lack of McQueen's stamp, the film's physically unflinching treatment of its subject matter is where he does make himself felt. This is a tremendously powerful drama that simultaneously highlights the human capacity for cruelty and for resilience, bolstered by an extraordinary, »
Title: Frank Director: Lenny Abrahamson Starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhall, Scoot McNairy. Take two gingery Brits whose talent is exceptional, a couple of gifted American actors and make them deliver, through music, society’s paranoias, what you get is a flick that is charming in its peculiarity. Irish director Lenny Abrahamson is accustomed to using misfits to analyse contemporary malaise, through dark comedy. In his first film, ‘Adam & Paul,’ a pair of heroin addicts made their way around Dublin in search of a fix, whilst his latter ‘What Richard Did’ fictionalised the assault on Brian Murphy, outside the Burlington Hotel in Dublin in 2000. Also ‘Frank,’ is populated [ Read More ]

20th Century Fox have done some fine work recently in world building for their forthcoming films. One need only look at the Ted talk given by Guy Pearce’s Peter Weyland and the ‘unboxing’ video for Michael Fassbender’s David to see how dedicated they were, and how much expense they went to, in order to bring us back to the world of Alien for Prometheus.
Now we are on a return course to the Planet of the Apes series with Dawn rising in just a few weeks time. Though we know about the beginning of war and the plague Matt Reeves’ film picks up the story ten years after the events of Rise, and much has changed in that time.

This year, you'll be getting Michael Fassbender delivered in a variety of flavors. We've already seen him in blockbuster mode with the hit "X-Men: Days Of Future Past," later this summer he's at the center of the bonkers indie comedy "Frank," and should post-production finish in time, he'll get Shakespearian with "Macbeth." And oh yeah, there's one more too: "Slow West." And the first image from the film has arrived. Co-starring Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ben Mendelsohn, and directed by John Maclean (who helmed two previous Fassbender-starring shorts, “Man on a Motorcycle” and “Pitch Black Heist”), this western has a pretty intriguing premise. "It’s a film set in the 1800s. I play a young Scottish boy brought up in the royal family. I fall in love with someone who works on our land. She ends up fleeing to Colorado because she’s wanted for a bounty, a murder, something she didn’t do, »
