Stream this in the summer: 'In Treatment'

2 August 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services has put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. In lieu of a summer rewind this year, I wanted to offer up primers of shows you can stream, whether an older series available in full(*) or something current you can catch up on before its next season begins. So far, I've done a few current shows in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Halt and Catch Fire, and Rectify, plus completed shows in United States of Tara and Flight of the Conchords. (*) Note: with these picks, »

‘The Handmaiden’ Trailer: ‘Oldboy’s’ Park Chan-wook Directs Lurid Revenge Cannes Drama

29 July 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you’ve felt the void of violent revenge thrillers elegantly filmed by acclaimed Korean filmmakers, then you’re in luck. Park Chan-wook’s highly-anticipated “The Handmaiden” will be in theaters soon. Adapted from Sarah Waters’ novel “Fingersmith” set in Victorian-era Britain, Park transposes the action to 1930s Korea under Japanese colonialism and follows Hideko (Kim Min-hee), a Japanese heiress searching for a husband to maintain her social standing and manage her estate. Devious con man Fujiwara (Ha Jung-woo) believes he’s the man for the job and hires Sook-hee (Kim Tae-ri) to pose as Hideko’s young maid in order to deceive her into marrying him. Unfortunately, the plan goes sideways when the two women fall for each other. Watch the trailer for the film below.

Five Reasons ‘Stranger Things’ Worked, and One Big Question

26 July 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stranger Things” has pulled off an increasingly rare feat. In an age in which TV is saturated with what often feels like too much TV, it’s become a true word-of-mouth hit.

Of course, “hit” might not be the right word: Netflix, of course, does not release viewership figures. But there’s no denying that “Stranger Things,” which had a relatively low profile at its release, has gotten a lot of buzz. Positive reviews probably helped, but anecdotally speaking, people are doing a very old-fashioned thing: They’re telling their friends that this spooky drama is something special. It’s been fun to watch the show’s fanbase grow, quietly but relentlessly.

So I’d like to revise my review a little. When I first wrote about “Stranger Things,” I’d only seen four episodes, and now that I’ve seen all eight, my assessment is even more positive. There’s a decent chance it could end »

65 Wonderful Stills From Alice and Wonderland on Its 65th Anniversary

26 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's go down the rabbit hole, shall we? On July 26, 1951, Disney's Alice in Wonderland introduced audiences to a wonderful fantasy world. Given the film's enduring popularity, it would seem many moviegoers have never returned to reality. Sixty-five years after its release, the animated cult classic—based on Lewis Carroll's Alice books—remains a fan favorite that has inspired theme park attractions and live-action film adaptations (starring Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska). Walt Disney had been trying to adapt Alice in Wonderland for the big screen since the 1930s. When it finally hit theaters, the studio's 13th animated feature included the voice talents of »

Robert Pattinson to Headline the Zellner Brothers’ Western ‘Damsel,’ Their Followup to ‘Kumiko’

13 July 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Team Bunzo hasn’t had much to celebrate of late, with the Zellner Brothers’ “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” now a distant enough memory for bunny- and/or Fargo-obsessed fans to wonder what’s next. David and Nathan will soon be back with “Damsel,” however, and per a new report from The Film Stage, the Western is said to have found its lead in Robert Pattinson. Mia Wasikowska, the actor’s “Map to the Stars” co-star, is reportedly in talks to join as well.

Much like his “Twilight” screen partner/former flame Kristen Stewart, Pattinson has found a new niche in the art-house world over the last few years, with films like “Cosmopolis” and “The Rover” surely testing the limits of his fanbase. No word on whether “Damsel” will be as extreme as those earlier projects, »

Robert Pattinson Leading Zellner Brothers’ Western ‘Damsel’; Mia Wasikowska in Talks to Join

13 July 2016 12:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Zellner brothers — consisting of David, writer and director, and Nathan, writer and producer — have been working their way further and further into the spotlight as of late. After years of praise that never quite translated into commercial notice, last year’s Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter proved about as popular and successful as a semi-austere, primarily Japanese-language film concerning a woman’s search for the treasure from Fargo might be — enough, perhaps, to attract two noteworthy players for the next endeavor.

Various sources have told us the Zellners are now directing Robert Pattinson in Damsel, a “Western Era comedy about a man trying to marry the woman of his dreams.” While the Utah Film Commission notes production began this week, our biggest indication that the ball’s rolling is a series of set photos showing Pattinson in — drum roll! — western-appropriate garb.

Alchemy Files for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Protection

7 July 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Troubled independent distributor Alchemy has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. bankruptcy court in Delaware.

The move had been expected since last week when reports emerged that the company was taking steps to liquidate its assets.

In its filing, the company said it has $50 million to $100 million in liabilities and $10 million to $50 million in assets. The petition also said Alchemy has between 200 and 999 creditors.

The company recently launched a series of cuts in its work force, leaving Alchemy with about 25 employees. It was the second series of staff reductions this year. Alchemy co-president Kelly Summers left the Los Angeles-based company recently.

The company, formerly known as Millennium Entertainment, relaunched itself as Alchemy early last year  and was an aggressive buyer at film festivals. It announced in July that it had acquired ANconnect and Anderson Digital and formed a strategic alliance with Arc Entertainment to act as aggregator for Walmart, »

Troubled independent distributor Alchemy is likely to file for bankruptcy protection as early as this week, according to an informed source.

The company recently launched a series of cuts in its work force, leaving Alchemy with about 25 employees. It was the second series of staff reductions this year.

Additionally, Alchemy co-president Kelly Summers left the Los Angeles-based company recently.

The company, formerly known as Millennium Entertainment, relaunched itself as Alchemy in January 2015 and was an aggressive buyer at film festivals. It announced in July that it had acquired ANconnect and Anderson Digital and formed a strategic alliance with Arc Entertainment to act as aggregator for Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Sam’s Club with 50 new content partners, including Bagdasarian Productions and DreamWorks Animation’s nontheatrical and classics divisions.

In December, CEO Bill Lee stepped down and the company promoted Summers and Scott Guthrie to the posts of co-presidents.

What Was Your Favorite Anton Yelchin Performance? — CriticWire Survey

20 June 2016 8:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the late Anton Yelchon, who was killed in a tragic accident early Sunday morning, which was your favorite of his performances?

Christopher Campbell (@thefilmcynic), Nonfics

It’s definitely not his best movie, and maybe it’s not really technically his best acting, but my favorite of Yelchin’s performances is in “Terminator Salvation.” You could tell he tried to sound like Michael Biehn in “The Terminator” in his portrayal of young Kyle Reese, and that meant a lot to me as a fan of these movies. And it shows how much he took care in his work »

Where Did 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' Go Wrong?

31 May 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Like a heroine tumbling through the rabbit hole, Disney took its own great fall this past weekend, as prospective tentpole Alice Through the Looking Glass coughed up a meager $34 million at the box-office in its opening days of release. A paltry sum in comparison to the $116 million opening weekend that Tim Burton's 2010 original "dark" fairy tale garnered, this sequel's poor showing registered as a sizable blip in Disney's ledgers. Floppier than the average flop, Disney's new folly provided industry competitors and common filmgoers several valuable lessons about how movies are made and sold. »

How Alice Through The Looking Glass Literally Threw Mia Wasikowska Back Into The Fictional World

29 May 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While most hit movies are able to produce a sequel within two years of the original.s release, that wasn.t the story for Alice in Wonderland. Instead, it look six years for Alice Through The Looking Glass, and in that time actress Mia Wasikowska has gone on to star in some fascinating and excellent projects. In coming back to the role of Alice, however, director James Bobin did his part to literally throw her back into the part . specifically by having her first day on set be a sequence where she is falling into Underland. Earlier this month, I had the pleasant opportunity to sit down with Mia Wasikowska at the Alice Through The Looking Glass press day in London, England, and while we touched on many aspects of her return to the part, one of the funniest bits of trivia she revealed was how the production schedule made »

Movie Review – Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

29 May 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Alice Through the Looking Glass, 2016.

Directed by James Bobin.

Starring Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Richard Armitage, Andrew Scott, Lindsay Duncan, and Sacha Baron Cohen.

Synopsis:

Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.

In an age where Hollywood cannot go more than two years tops without cashing in on a sequel to a smashing box office success, it is absolutely flabbergasting from a business perspective that Alice Through the Looking Glass is just now being released a little over six years after Tim Burton rebooted the iconic characters and story with Alice in Wonderland. That movie made over $1 billion too, begging the question, why was there no immediate follow-up?

Well, after having watched Alice Through the Looking Glass, it seems safe to assume »
