Intense new trailer for HBO’s Westworld unveiled

19 June 2016 11:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As was promised, HBO delivered a brand new teaser trailer for Westworld, their long-awaited science fiction western based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 feature film of the same name, before the latest episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday. The intense trailer, which is now online, can be viewed below…

If it weren’t for the multiple production delays that the project faced last year, it’s very much possible that HBO would have been well into airing the first season of Westworld by now, if not completely finished with it. Regardless, the network now has the show’s debut episode slated for a not-too-far-off October 2016 release date.

With the end in sight for Game of Thrones, loyal HBO viewers will be looking for a new show to cling onto once the land of Westeros is retired, and Westworld could potentially fill that void. The trailer alone teases a universe that looks fun, »

26 May 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO’s Westworld TV series hasn’t had an easy journey to the small screen, having faced numerous delays, and a production hiatus earlier this year in order to allow executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy more time to complete the final scripts.

However, with filming resuming last month, the network has now confirmed that the 10-episode adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi thriller will make it to the air this year, with the series set to premiere in the fall.

DVD Review – Mercury Plains (2016)

2 May 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mercury Plains, 2016.

Directed by Charles Burmeister.

Starring Scott Eastwood, Nick Chinlund and Angela Sarafyan.

Synopsis:

Mitch, jobless and drifting, accepts an offer by an undercover FBI paramilitary officer over the Mexican border to join his crew taking out the drug trade. He soon however begins to question his motives…

Scott Eastwood seems perennially like one of those leading men who will forever live in the shadow of their iconic, vaunted fathers, or at least he’s certainly likely to end up that way if he keeps spearheading leaden, stodgy fodder like Mercury Plains. Pitched by writer-director Charles Burmeister, in his second picture after 2008’s Columbus Day, as a searing, smoky and quiet trek into the black heart of the Mexican drug cartel trade via an undercover team of edgy Feds, the result ends up being little of the sort. Despite being demonstrably low budget, it’s also low on wit, »

HBO’s Westworld Resumes Filming As Lili Simmons Joins The Cast

6 April 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

HBO’s Westworld series was an ambitious proposition from the moment it was announced. The brainchild of showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the serial adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie boasts a sprawling ensemble cast and an even bigger budget. This is an epic tale, after all, telling of a futuristic theme park where the attractions are androids. Naturally things go awry, and the ‘droids of the Western part of the park start to malfunction. You can’t cobble together something that grand without spending, and the network wants to get it right.

After going on a “brief hiatus” earlier this year to get the scripts punched up, production has resumed on the series that’s described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” It’s a tantalising concept, which played a major part in attracting such a stellar cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, »

Me, Him, Her – The Review

15 March 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

The recent work of Max Landis has taken quite an amount of tarring and feathering. American Ultra absolutely failed at the box-office, and failed to connect with critics, Victor Frankenstein fared worse, and Mr. Right doesn’t seem to be rising to the occasion as the reviews come in. But one film ultimately has taken the most hate, and that is his most recent release Me, Him, Her.

That’s actually too bad because Me, Him, Her seems to be the best tailored to Landis’s own “take a high concept idea, and then without any real direction take such idea and with as much energy possible run it into the ground,” style of scriptwriting and filmmaking. Many of its ideals are already shallow and even tired enough that only the madcap energy of Max Landis could save them, and he halfway does it. Not quite, »

[Review] Me Him Her

9 March 2016 10:05 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You have to give Max Landis credit for trying to breathe fresh air into Hollywood tropes through his genre-merging scripts, whether you believe they’re effective or not. Chronicle‘s sci-fi, found-footage, horror thriller combo was well-received, while American Ultra‘s stoner Bourne Identity meets Mr. & Mrs. Smith was mostly reviled, although the latter’s reaction may have hinged upon people’s inability to remove his Twitter-celebrity-the-world-loves-to-hate-on from the work. His latest foray in the millennial screenwriting annals is a play on the romantic comedy that’s as much a Hollywood insider satire as it is a genre embellishment turning the homosexual as outsider trope upside down. And this time no one can blame or praise the director’s interpretation of his words. Yes, Max Landis is now Director Max Landis.

Me Him Her often times feels like a first-time director was behind the camera too. So much so that »
