Tim Burton’s Academy Award winning film Beetlejuice not only introduced the title character but forever branded his garishly colored, surrealistic antics into the collective minds of moviegoers. In one of the film’s most memorable scenes, Beetlejuice transforms into a highly stylized nightmare carousel.

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Trailer: Mel Gibson’s WWII Drama Stars Andrew Garfield As A Conscientious Objector On The Front Lines

28 July 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been ten years since Mel Gibson directed his last feature, the epic film “Apocalypto,” but now Gibson returns behind the camera with a WWII drama about the first conscientious objector to ever win the Medal of Honor. The film follows Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield), a Seventh Day Adventist whose religious beliefs prevented him from picking up a weapon. He goes through training, taking the brunt of abuse from his fellow soldiers who believes he’s a coward, but eventually lands on the front lines without a weapon in hand. Doss ended up saving 75 of his comrades during the Battle of Okinawa and was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor by President Truman for his bravery. The film also stars Vince Vaughn (“Swingers”), Sam Worthington (“Avatar”), Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”), Hugo Weaving (“The Lord of the Rings”), Ryan Corr (“Where The Wild Things Ar”), and more. »

First trailer for Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge starring Andrew Garfield

28 July 2016 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for Mel Gibson’s upcoming World War II drama Hacksaw Ridge which stars Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Vince Vaughn; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of conscientious collaborator Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He believed the war was just, but killing was nevertheless wrong; he was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon. As an army medic, Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. He was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Hacksaw Ridge is set for release on November 4th »

Director Mark Lamprell talks inheriting a cast in comedy sequel A Few Less Men

23 June 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

(l-r):.Kevin Bishop,.Xavier Samuel and.Kris Marshall.in A Few Less Men.

A Few Less Men, the sequel to Stephan Elliott's 2011 comedy A Few Best Men, was helmed by Mark Lamprell, the screenwriter of Babe: Pig in the City and director of 2000's My Mother Frank and 2013's Goddess.

Lamprell came on board after reading the script by Dean Craig (Death at a Funeral), who wrote the original film.

"It was lovely working on somebody else's screenplay because it was a really solid screenplay structurally," Lamprell said. "I could see that there was a really good movie in there. Dean's a very accomplished writer. The whole guts of it were laid out before me.".

Lamprell, who got his start at Kennedy Miller making Bts documentaries such as The Making of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), describes A Few Less Men as "a silly comedy.".

"It's not high-brow wit. »

Movie Review – Holding the Man (2015)

2 June 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Holding the Man, 2015.

Directed by Neil Armfield.

Starring Ryan Corr, Craig Stott, Guy Pearce, Anthony Lapaglia, Sarah Snook, Kerry Fox and Geoffrey Rush.

Synopsis:

Tim and John fell in love while teenagers at their all-boys high school. John was captain of the football team, Tim an aspiring actor playing a minor part in Romeo and Juliet. Their romance endured for 15 years to laugh in the face of everything life threw at it – the separations, the discrimination, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses – until the only problem that love can’t solve, tried to destroy them.

In the early 80’s a disease suddenly came to prominence through a storm of sensationalist media reporting. Up until then not many had heard of HIV or AIDS, but a seeming outbreak of the disease, which at the time was largely attributed to the Gay community, who began stepping out from the shadows and finding a voice in society, »

Film Review: Holding the Man

2 June 2016 12:33 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Adapted from a 1995 memoir of the same name by Australian actor Timothy Conigrave, Holding the Man recounts the star-crossed love of a lifetime between the writer and his athletic, handsome beau, John Caleo. Both men would succumb to AIDS-related illnesses and it is a pity that this layered and temporally-shifting recollection, that spans more than fifteen years, registers so little genuinely stirring emotion given the rollercoaster tale of woe at hand. What should be a heart-wrenching viewing experience remains disappointingly flat despite two dedicated performances - from Ryan Corr and Craig Stott - that attempt to bring some intensity of feeling to Neil Armfield's film.

Holding The Man review: “A strong and engaging film.”

1 June 2016 10:52 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Holding The Man review: This adaptation of Timothy Conigrave’s memoirs is striking, but is it as powerful as 20 years ago? Holding The Man review

Holding The Man is the true story of Timothy Conigrave (Ryan Corr), a young gay Australian man in the 1970s who falls for fellow pupil John Caleo (Craig Stott). The two start up a relationship, and the film chronicles their lives through the 1980s as they fight prejudice and AIDS. The film is based on the novel and eventual play written by Conigrave himself, making for a strikingly personal account of a tragic time when many failed to understand same sex relationships, and those in the relationships were unaware of a devastating disease. It’s easy to look back with frustration at such a time, but Candy director Neil Armfield, once again tackles a divisive subject with compassion and relevance.

The film is played off as a romance straight off, »
