Our Favorite Films From SXSW

25 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kelly and Aaron both had the chance to go to SXSW this year and cover it for Cinelinx, here's their top movie recommendations that they had the chance to see and you need to see once they're released.

Kelly's SXSW Top 3

1. The Final Girls 

This film took me by surprise, in all honestly I was debating on not going but decided last minute to see it and I am glad I did. I was expecting it to be it a little entertaining because it does have an all star comedy cast including Adam Devine and Thomas Middleditch but i was blown away. With hilarious diagloue and a great meta storyline about modern day teens getting stuck in a 1980's sleep away camp horror, be sure to keep this one on your radar for it's release date. It's one of the most original movie concepts I have seen in a long time, »

Ben Mendelsohn Circling Star Wars Spinoff Rogue One

25 March 2015 5:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Even if the films turn out to be terrible, it’s impossible to deny that Lucasfilm has been knocking it out of the park in terms of casting their Star Wars movies. Of course it helps when you have a property that everyone wants to be a part of, but the eclectic ensemble of Star Wars: The Force Awakens—with Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega and more set to occupy the same screen—is downright brilliant. Then the next Star Wars movie, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ spinoff Rogue One, started off on the right foot by casting Felicity Jones as the lead, and now it looks like the studio will continue its run with word that the phenomenal Ben Mendelsohn is mulling over joining Jones in the Rogue One cast. The folks at Deadline report that the Australian Animal Kingdom actor is “circling »

Live action Star Wars TV series rumoured to be in development

25 March 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If six new Star Wars films were not enough to fill your boots in a galaxy far, far away – we have a hot new rumour for you today!

According to Cinelinx (via /Film), Disney are developing a live action Star Wars TV show that will use the same constructed sets at Pinewood Studios in London as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The sites also report that the show will act as a bridging gap between the three new movies, with the show shooting in the interim between the films using the soundstage.

This is of course not the first time we’ve heard of a Star Wars themed TV show. Prior to George Lucas selling the franchise to Disney, he was planning a live action show of his own, which never got out of development stage.

As always, this is just a rumour for now. But given how much »

'Unbroken' Blu-ray Preview with Angelina Jolie | Exclusive

24 March 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Angelina Jolie takes us behind-the-scenes on the Australian set of Unbroken in our exclusive featurette for the Blu-ray and DVD, which is available starting today. The filmmaker, who makes her follow-up to her 2011 directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey with Unbroken, explains that this Australian location helps audience members "feel what they must have felt," stuck in the middle of "this dense jungle." She also adds that she wanted the audience to experience how overwhelming this place really was for the characters, after being stranded at sea for so long.

Unbroken follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis "Louie" Zamperini who survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash during World War II - only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a series of prisoner-of-war camps. The inspirational biopic is currently available on Digital HD, »

Exclusive: Angelina Jolie Gets Caught in the Rain Behind the Scenes of 'Unbroken'

23 March 2015 7:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Angelina Jolie doesn't mind a little (or a lot) of rain!

While directing her film Unbroken, Jolie gets caught in a quick downpour while ironically talking about the struggles of filming in this exclusive clip.

"It has not been the easiest shoot. It's a little difficult!" says Jolie. "The weather does not always agree with you, but you get through it."

The Academy Award winning actress’ film follows the true, inspirational story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini, who survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash during World War II – only to be caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a series of prisoner-of-war camps.

"His life is so full that it seems impossible to get into two hours," said Jolie of making the film. "We had to condense sections, but we didn't leave anything out -- we just »

This Week in Blu-ray: Us Edition – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Unbroken, Into the Woods and more

23 March 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

You read what Flickering Myth contributor Alfie Nobes made of the final chapter here.

While it failed to make as much of an impact along the awards season over the last few months, Angelina Jolie’s excellent sophomore directorial effort made over $160 million »

John Williams Will Score 'Star Wars 7' Soundtrack in L.A.

23 March 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, it was announced that famed musician John Williams had to back out of scoring the soundtrack to Steven Spielberg's espionage thriller Bridge of Spies. It will be the first time the two have not collaborated on a project since 1985's The Color Purple, when Quincy Jones stepped in. John Williams' schedule was interrupted due to a minor health issue. That issue has been corrected, and he has begun work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That soundtrack will be scored in Los Angeles, marking the first time a score for any Star Wars movie has ever been recorded in the United States. StarWars.com sent out the following press release:

John Williams is currently hard at work composing the score for&#160Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be recorded in Los Angeles. For the recording of the score, John Williams will work with members »

John Williams to record Star Wars: The Force Awakens score in Los Angeles

22 March 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Williams is set to break tradition when it comes to the score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the official Star Wars site revealing that the composer will record the score for the hotly-anticipated first chapter in Disney’s Sequel Trilogy in Los Angeles, rather than utilising Abbey Road Studios and the London Symphony Orchestra, as he did with the first six chapters of the saga.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with the very best musicians in both the U.K. and the U.S.,” says Williams. “The London Symphony Orchestra has consistently performed with great artistry on all six of the prior films in the Star Wars saga, and I will be forever grateful for their commitment and dedication.  Equally, it has been my honor to have worked with my brilliant colleagues in Los Angeles, and always appreciate the invaluable contribution they’ve made »

SXSW 2015 Ex Machina Roundtable Ft. Writer/Director Alex Garland and star Oscar Isaac

21 March 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ex Machina was without argument the hottest premiere at SXSW 2015. The line around Paramount circled, back and forth and began wrapping the adjacent building even. When Director Alex Garland and stars Oscar Isaac, and Domhnall Gleeson hit the stage to present the film the rally cries violently approved. And the energy wasn't all for nothing, Ex Machina proved exceptionally seductive cinema. I was fortunate enough to attend the Ex Machina roundtable, with Alex Garland, and Oscar Isaac, to get a first hand opportunity to work out the big ideas and questions the film provokes. 

All non cinelinx labeled Q's, asked by other Film Journalists. And all non-cinelinx answers Paraphrased.

 

Q. On that dance scene...

 

A. Oscar Isaac explains that there was a lot of preparation, and rehearsals, and that Alex Garland (Writer/Director) would look over it, and join in on occasion. 

 

Q. On the dance coming out of left field. »

'Ex Machina' (2015) Movie Review

21 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made no secret about my love of theater on this website. Granted, a lot of that love has been reserved for musicals, but the love really stretches beyond that. Theater has the ability to put two people in a room and let dialogue and acting dictate a story in a way I find endlessly engrossing. Movies that employ this kind of storytelling are often dinged for being "too stagey" or "not cinematic enough". People want plays and musicals opened up for a more visual, less aural experience. It's not necessary, and can actually hurt what makes the piece interesting to begin with. Ex Machina isn't adapted from a stage play, but it employs the stage tactic of simply sitting two people in front of one another to hash out their ideas and emotions verbally. The result is intelligent, entertaining, pulp science fiction at its best. The questions proposed in »

Oscar Isaac confirms he’ll be back for Star Wars: Episode VIII; talks flying an X-Wing in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

20 March 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re apparently getting a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens very soon, and while we wait one of its stars Oscar Isaac has been talking about working in a galaxy far, far away.

“It’ll be very cool. I’m very excited about it. I’m excited to see it, to see how it all comes together,” he told Moviefone, noting that the trailer was “very fun” and that “it was very fun to see that spirit get ignited again.”

The first movie I remember seeing in a theatre was Return of the Jedi,” he adds as to why he took the role. “And then J.J., on top of the whole thing was J.J. Nostalgia can only go so far and at a certain point you have to have someone who has a real vision of what they want to do.”

Unbroken – The Blu Review

19 March 2015 6:57 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When Dana Jung reviewed Unbroken here at We Are Movie Geeks, he called it “an amazing testament to the human capacities for endurance and survival.” (read all of Dana’s review Here)

I too found Unbroken to be an outstanding film. Directed by Angelina Jolie, Unbroken was the inspiring true story of Olympic winning medalist, Louis Zamperini, who went on to serve during World War and went through a string of unbelievable hardships. Unbroken opened with an incredibly strong action scene and as the story unfolded, Jolie gave us flashbacks of Louis’ childhood and upbringing. It is a bit formulaic in the sense that it follows pretty much the same conventions as most biopics have done in the past, but that old-fashioned approach worked best for this material. Even though you know the Liberator crew is going to crash, you can’t help but feel the sorrow of the loss »

'Star Wars 8': Will Oscar Isaac Return as Poe Dameron?

19 March 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Disney finally confirmed that Rian Johnson will be writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, with Disney setting a May 26, 2017 release date for this follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, no other details were given in regards to the story, or what characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be back for the follow-up. It is widely believed that the new characters introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be at the center of both Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, but the entire trilogy is still shrouded in mystery. Oscar Isaac, who plays X-wing pilot Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is doing press for his sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, where he was asked how he felt about working with Rian Johnson in Star Wars: Episode VIII. His answer essentially confirms that he »

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and Going After X-Men's Apocalypse (Exclusive)

19 March 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A few days ago at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, we got to sit down with Oscar Isaac, the charismatic star of "Inside Llewyn Davis" and last year's amazing (and amazingly under-seen) "A Most Violent Year." We were there to chat about his new movie, the deeply brilliant sci-fi film "Ex Machina," wherein he plays a mad scientist and tech billionaire who recruits an underling (played by Domhnall Gleeson) to test out some cutting edge new artificial intelligence and things go awry. It's awesome and we'll be bringing you lots more from the movie (and our interview with Isaac) in the weeks ahead.

But while we were chatting, I couldn't help but bring up the fact that he will soon be seen in a little art house movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," directed by some guy named J.J. Abrams. So I quizzed him »
