Movie Review – Pete’s Dragon (2016)

27 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pete’s Dragon, 2016.

Directed by David Lowery.

Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Oona Laurence, Karl Urban, Wes Bentley and Robert Redford.

Synopsis:

The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

When the original Pete’s Dragon was released in 1977 it was one of two big-screen adventures that combined live-action characters with those of an animated persuasion to great effect even if box office numbers didn’t follow suit. Both that and the other, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, didn’t quite bring in the kind of financial success that the great studio had previously but both films have enjoyed huge leases of life across the years since its original release that have charmed and delighted audiences of all ages. Time for a remake, then.

The new version, as with many of the new Disney “universe”, is different in »

Eddie Redmayne Joins ‘The Last Days of Night,’ ‘Mary Magdalene’ Adds Tahar Rahim, and More

27 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a notch on his wizarding wand now complete, the Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne is now gearing up to star in Morten Tyldum‘s adaptation of the historical thriller The Last Days of Night. According to Deadline, it concerns the battle between the mammoths of the industrial era Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse as they try to quite literally electrify America. Despite this premise, Redmayne will play neither of the two titans, instead starring as Paul Cravath, a now-famed lawyer that made the dispute his first career-making case. The script is penned by The Imitation Game scribe Graham Moore, which marks a re-team between director, writer, and production company Black Bear Pictures. 

This production has a funny case of meta-reality, as the Weinstein Company are also suiting up to make a Edison v. Westinghouse pic that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and potentially Jake Gyllenhaal. This is not the first time in recent »

Pete’s Dragon review: “Put simply, the best family movie of the summer”

27 July 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Petes Dragon review: Disney brings a classic story to screen with a distinct indie vibe with this instant classic.

Petes Dragon review by Paul Heath, July 2016.

This year, and particularly this summer, has been awash with disappointment after disappointment. I suppose it all kicked off with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice back in March, the first big blockbuster of the year which pretty much set the tone for what followed. Despite peaks (Captain America: Civil War) and deep, deep troughs (Warcraft), this season proceedings have been distinctly average. The same could be said for the family movies that have been presented to us this year. For every Zootropolis there’s been an Ice Age: Collision Course, and even Spielberg couldn’t capture audiences Stateside with his version of The Bfg (despite us loving it over in Cannes, and the UK cinema-going public embracing it).

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.
