So, might we get our first look at Oscar Isaac’s villain today? There is of course the possibility that Singer is simply announcing that the actor is on set, so maybe we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much…

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 26th June to Sunday 28th June 2015…

 

Universal Pictures continued its stellar box office run this past weekend with the release of the Despicable Me spinoff Minions, which dethroned Jurassic World at the top of the UK chart with a solid opening weekend of £11,558,946. That’s a record for the franchise, surpassing the £9.95 million debut of Despicable Me 2, and the biggest ever three-day opening for an animated film on these shores.

Alex Reviews Slow West – A Violent Western All About Love

30 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

A24/Lionsgate

Rating: ★★★★

Ah, the Western. The gift we love to pretend has stopped giving. Periodically, a movie set in the 1800s featuring cowboys and quick-fire gun action comes along and everyone makes big statements about how it used to be a cinematic cornerstone and now, well, isn’t (for an answer to why that happened, see Toy Story).

The thing is, while the Western did decrease in prominence and certainly went away from the mainstream, it is still fighting strong. How would the annual (or, for 2015 it seems, bi-monthly) tradition of commenting on the genre’s long-past heyday still exist otherwise?

What is worth remarking on in regards to the Western is how pretty much every noteworthy recent entry in the genre (even, to a degree, the dire Cowboys And Aliens) has been about the “End of an Era”; True Grit juxtaposed growing up with the death of the »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Video Has Olivia Munn Training as Psylocke

29 June 2015 12:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal, under the direction of Bryan Singer. The film closes out the X-Men trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued with last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, with the story set in 1983. While several cast members from the aforementioned two movies are returning, there are several new actors coming into the fold, including Olivia Munn as Psylocke. We haven't seen her in costume on the set yet, but the actress revealed a new video on her Instagram page, where she shows off her new swordplay skills.

We haven't seen many photos from the set lately, since production has moved indoors in Montreal, but hopefully we'll get our first official look at Olivia Munn in costume as Psylocke soon. The actress is seen practicing with a fake katana sword, the character's trademark weapons from the X-Men comics. We still don't know »

Good returns for mini-festival releases

28 June 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The gambit of launching Kim Farrant.s Strangerland and John Maclean.s Slow West in a limited number of cinemas immediately following their Sydney Film Festival premieres looks like paying off.

In a joint marketing exercise between the festival and Transmission Films dubbed Sff Presents, Farrant.s feature debut starring Nicole Kidman, Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes opened on about 25 screens on June 11.

.To date we've grossed approximately $100,000 and averaged around $2,000 for each session, which we are very happy with,. Transmission.s co-founder Andrew Mackie tells If.

.We played very limited festival sessions at each location, rather than traditional seasons. We've had numerous sell-outs, which is why many locations carried the film over. It continues this week..

As a mini-festival release the mystery drama produced by Naomi Wenck and Macdara Kelleher is not subject to the usual 120-day home entertainment holdback, so the title will be available on DVD and »

Slow West Review

27 June 2015 7:26 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While it may not be as prevalent as it once was, the Western refuses to go away. It’s genre that has evolved in the face of its waning popularity, clear cut battle of white hats against the back hats giving way to an entire deconstruction of the genre, and now recent years have seen a rise in movies celebrating the Western, from the knowing homage of Django Unchained or a loving tribute in the vain of The Salvation. Now, John McLean wades in with his directorial debut, Slow West, taking the spirit of the genre and giving it a spin all this own. A founding member of Scottish experimental musical group The Beta Band, McLean’s breaths an air of the eccentric into the familiar tale of Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit McPhee), a young immigrant who has travelled from “the cold shoulder of Scotland to the baking heart of »

Movie Review – Slow West (2015)

26 June 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Slow West, 2015.

Written and Directed by John Maclean.

Starring Kodi Smit-McPhee, Michael Fassbender, Ben Mendelsohn, Caren Pistorius, Rory McCann and Stewart Bowman.

Synopsis:

A young Scottish man travels across America in pursuit of the woman he loves, attracting the attention of an outlaw who is willing to serve as guide.

The western film is dead say some, a lost art of genre that very rarely makes the mustard with Hollywood these days amongst the multi-million pound extravaganza’s that are slowly clogging up cinemas quicker than you can say Fast & Furious. But the myth that westerns just don’t work in modern cinema is a ridiculous premise. Anyone who saw Tommy Lee JonesThe Homesman last year will agree that when they are done right and with care and love, they are marvellously entertaining and cling to an old-fashioned part of cinema that is slowly, and sadly, being eradicated.

Slow West review – trails and tribulation

25 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Michael Fassbender and Kodi Smit-McPhee star in a tense tale packed with strange twists and turns

It’s only slow in the way a rattlesnake or a predatory killer is slow. This terrific film is actually tense, twisty and brilliant. Don’t be put off by the dull poster or the heartsinking critical talk since its Sundance premiere about it bringing a “European” sensibility to the western. Writer-director John Maclean makes a lethally stylish feature debut with this tale of murder and survival in the old west. He has put together a drum-tight picture with elegant and dust-dry humour; it’s wonderfully shot by cinematographer Robbie Ryan, and Maclean incidentally brings off a brutally outrageous digression that would make Quentin Tarantino proud.

Kodi Smit-McPhee is the co-lead: an actor I first came across when he played opposite Viggo Mortensen as the kid in John Hillcoat’s 2009 movie The Road, which »

Slow West review: Michael Fassbender leads an ethereal western

24 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: John Maclean; Screenwriter: John Maclean; Starring: Michael Fassbender, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Mendelsohn, Caren Pistorius; Running time: 84 mins; Certificate: 15

The Old West becomes a distant dreamland as seen through the eyes of Kodi Smit-McPhee, playing a Scottish lad who crosses an ocean and navigates hostile territory to find the girl he loves. Substance doesn't quite match up to the high style of this ethereal western, but Michael Fassbender lends weight as the gruff gunslinger who rides along with the kid, shooting holes through his romantic view of the world.

Jay Cavendish is only 16, fresh-faced (almost a blank canvas in McPhee's rendering) and ripe for a kicking in the backwoods of Colorado where he finds himself in 1870. He strays into the crossfire when a local tribe of Indians are hunted like animals through the trees, a situation that clearly offends Silas (Fassbender) who appears from nowhere to put an end to »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
