10 Best Movies to See in April: 'Furious 8,' Wtf Indies and a Great Rock Doc

22 hours ago | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Aside from the guaranteed global behemoth F8 of the Furious, a.k.a. Furious 8, a.k.a. All in the Fambly, this April is conspicuously blockbuster-lite. (Unless you count Smurfs: The Lost Village, and we do not.) No better time, then, to do a bit of exploring around the indie fringes. Offbeat genre pictures are abound this month, from a sleazy revenge picture to a slippery character study/kaiju movie combo to a virtuosic opera of gunfire. Elsewhere, Tom Hanks tackles a technothriller, Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson venture into »

5 Would-Be Blockbusters That Deserve to Outgross ‘Justice League’ This Year — IndieWire Critics Survey

27 March 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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

2017 is just getting started, but we’ve already seen an unusually wide variety of hit movies that ranges from corporate behemoths (“Beauty and the Beast”) to culture-shaking phenomenons (“Get Out”). Some of these blockbusters have been safe (it’s hard to imagine that something like “Justice League” won’t make actual buckets of money when it hits later this year), or even cynical (who knew that “Split” could upend the box office so early, and kinda stay there?), while others have pushed the needle forward and inspired the type of fervid conversation that’s usually reserved for television.

Fan-made Justice League poster featuring Armie Hammer as Green Lantern

27 March 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg all receiving solo character posters before this past Saturday’s Justice League trailer drop, Photoshop artist Boss Logic has created a new image offering a look at what an Armie Hammer-inspired Green Lantern would look like. Check it out here…

The poster comes hot on the heels of the rampant speculation linking Armie Hammer to the role of Hal Jordan in the DC Extended Universe, and reports that a member of the Green Lantern Corps is set to make a cameo in the blockbuster superhero movie. It’s also worth pointing out that Hammer has playfully gone along with the casting rumours while also remaining coy and officially denying any involvement.

Fan-Made Justice League Poster Finally Brings Green Lantern Into The Fold

26 March 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been one heck of a week for fans of the DC Extended Universe. First, Warner Bros. released a series of character posters and teasers before a brand new trailer uniting the Justice League found its way online yesterday morning. However, there was someone conspicuous by their absence.

Chances are Superman is the first person who sprung to mind after you read that sentence, but a fan-made teaser has already provided some insight into what exactly the Man of Steel’s been up to. Instead, we’re referring to the other missing hero: Hal Jordan, a.k.a. Green Lantern.

Of course, the character is expected to appear in Green Lantern Corps, but in the comics, he too was a founding member of the League. Why he’s been left on the shelf here then is hard to say, though it could have something to do with how poorly received his 2011 solo outing was. »

‘Free Fire’ Review

24 March 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Michael Smiley, Sam Riley, Jack Reynor | Written by Ben Wheatley, Amy Jump | Directed by Ben Wheatley

From A Field in England to a High-Rise in London to a warehouse in a Us dockland, you cannot say writer-director Ben Wheatley is predictable. Except Free Fire does feel distinctly familiar – comfortingly and enjoyably so, perhaps, but do not expect the unexpected. The heightened ‘70s aesthetic is retained from Wheatley’s previous film, instantly eliminating the issue of mobile phones, while also feeling like a throwback to a simpler cinematic time.

In what is more premise than plot, a bunch of idiotic guys and a slightly less idiotic woman (Brie Larson) descend upon a warehouse to complete a weapons deal. Frank (Wheatley regular Michael Smiley) leads the buyers; Vernon (Sharlto Copley) is the unhinged dealer. Mediating the deal is Ord (Armie Hammer) – but despite »

Five Films Executive Produced By Martin Scorsese

24 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Wheatley’s new film Free Fire has been described as a brutally effective film and an irresistible adrenaline shot of cinema; this is perhaps unsurprising considering the talent behind it, particularly legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese who executive produced the film. In commemoration with Free Fire’s theatrical release, we have collected five pictures Scorsese was involved in but did not direct that readers may be unaware of.

Before the Flood (2016)

This documentary looks at the effect of climate change on our environment and what can be done to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the planet. Whilst Leonardo Dicaprio’s starring role in the project makes Scorsese’s involvement somewhat unsurprising, it is still interesting to see him venture into such a timely subject matter and it is an essential addition to their extensive history of collaboration.

Green Lantern: Hal Jordan Kinda Confirmed By Trolls Cavill, Hammer, and Johns!

21 March 2017 3:22 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Ok you three, and this is currently addressed to Henry Cavill, but fear not, Armie Hammer and Geoff Johns are included in this. 

So for months now Armie Hammer (which by the way I wish I was born with that name) and Geoff Johns (my favorite DC writer, and the man that brought Hal back into existence) have been teasing us with Twitter/Instagram images, hints, and downright teasers that make us all run to IMDb.

Well Henry Cavill has decided to join the fun with some interesting Twitter/Instagram posts. And, Henry, man, your dog wants a Busy Bone he is not looking for Hal!!!!!

The Sweet Symphony of Violence

21 March 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best cinematic action of 2017 in three parts from the movies of SXSW.

It was heavier than I had anticipated. At the age of 16, if my memory serves me correctly, it was the first time I’d ever held a real gun. In the midwest, surrounded by a family full of avid hunters, this was a right of passage. At some point an uncle or two would want to show you the awesome power of a real firearm, both as appreciation for the weapon’s power and as a lesson in the seriousness of its deadly potential. The weight of the revolver in my hand brought both of these concepts to life with immediacy. It’s hard to hold a real gun and not be in awe and at least a little terrified. It’s a feeling I’ll never shake, perhaps one of those moments in which a teenager’s journey toward adulthood was accelerated a »

SXSW 2017 Review: Free Fire is a Bullet-Riddled Blast

20 March 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ben Wheatley has been one of my favorite indie filmmakers over the last few years, with his consistently stellar and thought-provoking work on projects like Kill List, A Field in England, High-Rise, his contribution to The ABCs of Death anthology, as well as Sightseers, his dark comedy that’s one of my very favorite movies from the last five years. So from the get-go, once I heard about Free Fire, and the talent that Wheatley would be working with on his explosive actioner, I was admittedly 110% on board, sight unseen.

And, thankfully, Wheatley’s satirical send-up of society’s obsession with guns lived up to my lofty expectations (and then some), as he takes the one of the things we love most about action movies—the shootout scene—and stretches it into a hilariously violent character piece that’s as relentlessly paced as it is relentlessly funny.

SXSW Free Fire Cast/Crew Red Carpet Interviews

20 March 2017 1:52 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

A24's Free Fire brought its U.S Premiere to South By Southwest. Anarchic Writer/Director Ben Wheatley (High-Rise, Kill List, A Field In England) and cast, Armie Hammer (The Social Network, Lone Ranger) & (the insane) Sharlto Copley (District 9, Chappie), were in attendance. And the film's promotional presence was appropriately subversive. Press had the opportunity to barbecue with Armie and paintball with Sharlto at the explosive 'Stunt Ranch' which featured plenty other daredevil diversions. 

The Q&A's on either end were no less distinct. Ben will shoot a dumb question down with his deadpan shorthand, Sharlto with his charming abrasiveness, and Armie with his cool formality. The laughter provoked through the film persisted into the Q&A. 

But before things got too rowdy, I was able to talk with Ben a second time (the first a discussion on High-Rise) and with Armie Hammer for the first, about their creative »

The project is set to begin production in August, which would allow Vikander time to finish her role as Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

Wheatley’s latest, Free Fire, is set to hit cinemas on March 31st in the UK and April 21st in North America, and features a cast that includes Brie Larson, Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Jack Reynor and Michael Smiley. »

Movie Review – Free Fire (2017)

18 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Free Fire, 2017.

Directed by Ben Wheatley.

Starring Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sharlito Copley, Baboo Ceesay, Enzo Cilenti, Jack Reynor, Sam Riley, Noah Taylor and Michael Smiley.


1978, Boston, Massachusetts. Justine has brokered a meeting between two Irishmen and a gang selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired, a heart stopping game of survival ensues.

When damage to a seventies shoulder pad is considered more damaging than a bullet to the knee, you know you’re not in typical shootout territory.

An absolute blast in every sense of the word, Kill List, Sightseers and High-Rise director Ben Wheatley’s typically mischievous new movie Free Fire steers us away from the warped social realism of his earlier Brit-based offerings to take aim at the slicker template established by action genre masters. Fuse the claustrophobic and intense firefights of Ringo Lam or Sam Peckinpah (both noted influences »

17 March 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Warner Bros. announced their Dceu lineup, the last film mentioned was Green Lantern Corps., slated for release on July 24, 2020. Back in January, it was confirmed that Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer has come aboard to write the screenplay, which will feature two iconic comic book characters, Hal Jordan and John Stewart. Today a new rumor has surfaced, which reveals that the studio may be looking at David S. Goyer to direct Green Lantern Corps. as well.

This unconfirmed tidbit was revealed by The Tracking Board editor-in-chief Jeff Sneider on today's episode of Meet the Movie Press, but no further details were given. The original report from January revealed that the studio wants to get a script together rather quickly and search for a director, with David S. Goyer also serving as a producer with DC Films presidents Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. It isn't known how far »

Ben Wheatley's Freakshift adding Alicia Vikander

17 March 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Mar 20, 2017

The Oscar winning Alicia Vikander eyes more action after Tomb Raider with Ben Wheatley's monster-hunter film, Freakshift.

Alicia Vikander is definitely in the midst of a moment after winning an Oscar for 2015’s The Danish Girl. Next set to appear as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider reboot, Vikander is certainly stepping deep into the world of action movies, and the tentative one that’s being lined up after that sounds even more interesting: as per Deadline, Vikander is in talks to star in Freakshift, a new Ben Wheatley action movie with horror elements.

Wheatley has also been on the rise in recent years with films like A Field in England, High-Rise, and next week's hotly anticipated Free Fire under his belt. Also with Free Fire, an action movie that stars Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, and Cillian Murphy, getting raves on the festival circuit, »

Alicia Vikander in talks to lead Ben Wheatley’s Freakshift

17 March 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Ben Wheatley’s FreeFire is yet to hit cinemas but talk surrounding his next venture, monster caper Freakshift, currently features Oscar Winner Alicia Vikander in talks to take the lead after she finishes kicking some serious butt in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

Related: Alicia Vikander on The Light Between Oceans

Freakshift has been a passion project for Wheatley for many years and production looks all set to begin in August, exactly when Vikander ties up all loose ends as Lara Croft. Good Timing? Or is she simply a sure thing to sign on the dotted line for a cop vs. monster showdown?

After Wheatley’s successes with Kill List, High Rise, which starred Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans and the forthcoming Freefire starring Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and Brie Larson he is having absolutely no trouble in attracting the big guns to work on his projects. »

Horror Highlights: Free Fire, Comet Network March Contest, Shriekfest Orlando

17 March 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In today's Horror Highlights, we take a look at Free Fire events at SXSW, a Comet network March contest, and the announcement of Shriekfest Orlando.

Free Fire at SXSW: "Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley and writer/director Ben Wheatley joined SXSW press and attendees yesterday for paintball, explosions, BBQ lessons, and other ill-advised activities at Austin's Stunt Ranch to celebrate A24's Free Fire. The out-of-control film received an appropriately outrageous event ahead of the sold-out Us premiere at the Paramount, where the audience went wild for Wheatley's action-comedy."

Synopsis: "Bold, breathless and wickedly fun, Free Fire is an electrifying action comedy about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Acclaimed filmmaker Ben Wheatley (Kill List, High Rise) propels the audience head-on into quite possibly the most epic shootout ever seen on film as he crafts a spectacular parody -- and biting critique -- of the insanity of gun violence. »
