Locarno Film Review: ‘Iceman’

13 August 2017 2:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An extraordinary premise gets a slightly ordinary workout in Felix Randau’s meticulously mounted but narratively simplistic “Iceman,” an imagining of the last days in the life of the man we now know affectionately as Ötzi, whose mummified remains were found in the Alps in 1991, and were subsequently discovered to date back to 3300 B.C. It’s an anthropologically depressing but dramaturgically promising fact that the oldest European we’ve found apparently died a violent, unnatural death: He had an arrowhead lodged inside him, four different types of blood on his body and likely died from blunt force head trauma. But while Randau’s script might more or less account for these findings, there’s little additional texture or philosophy to the film. “Iceman” is a straight-up, linear revenge story, a kind of Chalcolithic “Taken,” in which our hero’s very specific set of skills include fire-building, deer-hunting and the economical reuse of arrows.

First Trailer for Survival Revenge Film 'Iceman' About a Neolithic Man

25 July 2017 6:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"They found a man, but not his story..." A trailer has debuted for a film titled Iceman, which is premiering at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland kicking off this week. This film could be described as an ancient Neolithic man version of The Revenant, about one man who angrily seeks revenge but must first survive the brutal Ötztals Alps. Jürgen Vogel stars as Kelab, with the full cast including Susanne Wuest, André Hennicke, Violetta Schurawlow, Sabin Tambrea, Martin Schneider, and an appearance by Franco Nero. The film uses an early version of the Rhaetic language. This actually looks damn good, with some impressive hair + beards and an intense story set entirely in the wilderness. I'm intrigued enough to watch. Here's the first official trailer (+ German poster) for Felix Randau's Iceman, direct from YouTube: 5000 years ago: A man lives with his woman and their children in the Ötztals Alps. »

Movie Review – A Cure for Wellness (2017)

22 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Cure for Wellness, 2017.

Directed by Gore Verbinski.

Starring Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth, Jason Isaacs, Adrian Schiller, Celia Imrie, and Susanne Wuest.

Synopsis:

An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps, but soon suspects that the spa’s treatments are not what they seem.

If only all vanity projects were as masturbatory and hysterically overwrought as Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness. It’s a 150-minute homage to Dario Argento, a critique of modern capitalism, a grotesque flamboyant fairy tale and in the current climate of turgid, machine made, a copy of a copy of a copy horror cinema, it’s a refreshing excursion to somewhere new. It’s a frantic exercise in absolute excess.

It’s hard to imagine how the film was bankrolled following Verbinski’s attempt at »

Lego Batman Wins Weekend #2 at the Box Office with $34.2M

19 February 2017 11:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After easily conquering highly-anticipated sequels Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick 2, Warner Bros.' animated spin-off Lego Batman Movie faced three newcomers in its second weekend at the box office. The animated spin-off will go up against Universal's big budget action epic The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon, Warner Bros.' comedy Fist Fight starring Ice Cube and Charlie Day and 20th Century Fox's A Cure For Wellness starring Dane DeHaan. As expected, The Lego Batman Movie retained its spot atop the box office with a better than expected $34.2 million

While there are certainly many factors that lead to The Lego Batman Movie staying on top of the box office, one of these factors is that it is still playing in hundreds of more theaters than any of these newcomers. The Lego Batman Movie debuted in 4,088 theaters last weekend, which, according to Box Office Mojo, remained unchanged this weekend. reporting »

Can The Great Wall Overtake Lego Batman at the Box Office?

14 February 2017 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After easily conquering highly-anticipated sequels Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick 2, Lego Batman Movie has its sights set on three more newcomers hitting theaters this weekend, to retain its box office crown. The animated spin-off will go up against Universal's big budget action epic The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon, Warner Bros.' comedy Fist Fight starring Ice Cube and Charlie Day and 20th Century Fox's A Cure For Wellness starring Dane DeHaan. We're predicting that, at least for this weekend, The Lego Batman Movie finds a way to stay on top at the box office, with a projected $29.6 million.

One reason that The Lego Batman Movie will likely stay on top is because it will still be playing in hundreds of more theaters than any of these newcomers. The Lego Batman Movie debuted in 4,088 theaters last weekend, a number that will likely remain unchanged this Friday, with Box Office »

Movie Review – A Cure for Wellness (2017)

7 February 2017 7:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A Cure for Wellness, 2017.

Directed by Gore Verbinski.

Starring Dane DeHaan, Mia Goth, Jason Isaacs, Adrian Schiller, Celia Imrie, and Susanne Wuest.

Synopsis:

An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps but soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem.

There won’t be another mainstream Hollywood film similar to A Cure for Wellness released all year. After having viewed the twisted and psychedelic mind-bender from director Gore Verbinski (The Ring and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise), what stands out front and center is the shock that 20th Century Fox actually greenlit a mid-budget hard-r thriller filled with taboos and uncomfortable material, all wrapped up in a beefy 146 minute running time. Instead of asking questions, let’s just be grateful that something truly different, unashamedly »

Oftentimes, these resolutions go unfulfilled, a theme that is highlighted in a creepy new TV trailer for 20th Century Fox's A Cure For Wellness.
