Second trailer for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups

24 November 2015 3:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The second trailer has arrived online for Knight of Cups, the latest film from acclaimed director Terrence Malick, which stars Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Natalie Portman. Watch it below after the official synopsis…

See Also: New images from Knight of Cups

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. »

'Knight of Cups' Trailer #2 Has Christian Bale in an Existential Crisis

24 November 2015 11:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last December, just months before its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, the first trailer was released for Knight of Cups, the latest from director Terrence Malick. We haven't heard anything about this mysterious project since then, but today, Broad Green Pictures has released the second trailer, which only features a few brief new shots that weren't included in the first trailer, amounting to roughly 10 seconds of new footage. Unfortunately, these never-before-seen moments don't give us any added insight into this story.

Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick's (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. »

“Tracking Shot” is a top of month featurette here on that looks at the projects that are moments away from lensing. This November, we’ve got a fivesome of projects that we feel are worth signaling out, but before we put the focus on those, the previous month was a rather fruitful one for mostly indiewood film productions.

Gender-Swapping Thriller Tomboy Secures Michelle Rodriguez

28 October 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michelle Rodriguez, star of Avatar and a series stalwart on Universal’s petrolhead Fast and Furious franchise, has agreed a deal to topline gender-swapping thriller Tomboy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Directed by Walter Hill, the project has already recruited Sigourney Weaver for the role of a rogue surgeon, who plays an instrumental part across the course of the atypical action flick. Stepping into the shoes of a deadly and feared assassin, Rodriguez’s hitman is known by many and feared by all, but when a deal goes south with a group of lowly gangsters, the character is left in the hands of Weaver’s trigger-happy doctor, who turns the lead character into a woman. From hitman to hitwoman, Rodriquez soon sets about exacting her revenge, teaming up with a nurse named Johnnie to ensure nobody befalls the same fate.

It’s certainly a fascinating set-up on paper, but it »

Michelle Rodriguez Starring In Tomboy, A Revenger's Tale

28 October 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Walter Hill is tackling gender reassignment themes in his next film, albeit in the guise of an action thriller. Michelle Rodriguez and Sigourney Weaver are on board to star in Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale. Hill has written the script based on a story by Denis Hamill, which sees a top assassin double-crossed by gangsters and handed over to a rogue surgeon (Weaver) who turns him into a woman. Now a hit woman, she heads out for some vengeance, aided by a nursed named Johnnie who also has secrets. It’ll be an interesting role for Rodriguez to tackle and a welcome leading performance give how often she’s been in ensembles recently. She’s taking over the job from Freida Pinto, who was attached a couple of months ago before the film made its initial rounds at the Toronto Film Festival’s market. Hill will start rolling the cameras next month in Vancouver. »

Film Review: ‘India’s Daughter’

22 October 2015 8:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2012 gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh, a 23-year-old medical student in Delhi, India, sparked a nationwide outcry against an entire culture’s systemic abuse and dehumanization of women. Delving into the horrific particulars of that case, Leslee Udwin’s hour-long activist documentary “India’s Daughter” makes for grim, infuriating and sadly necessary viewing, its despair tinged with the faintest hope that the protestors’ call for gender equality may yet be reignited. If Udwin’s dramatic reconstruction of events at times veers from sensitive toward sensationalist, her unflinching access to her subjects offers chilling insight into the minds of men who are taught, at an early age, to view women with a matter-of-fact contempt that can escalate all too easily into lethal aggression.

As demonstrated at film’s end by a list of depressing global statistics pertaining to sexual violence against women, these lessons have a painful relevance well beyond India. »

Review: Blunt Force Trauma

9 October 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When HBO aired its vampire series True Blood, its arrival came at just the right time. The Twilight series was everywhere and horror was hitting the mainstream at every shopping mall in America. True Blood had creator Alan Ball at its side, therefore, already providing a sense of authenticity due to his resume consisting of the Oscar winning American Beauty and HBO’s earlier series, Six Feet Under. It’s through True Blood that America was introduced to Australian actor Ryan Kwanten who played the air headed yet lovable Jason Stackhouse. Kwanten has created a name for himself in the genre with Knights Of Badassdom, Dead Silence, and the underrated Griff The Invisible. His career is subtle overall, but he has the charisma to become a leading man and hope he gets a role that will get a more mainstream appeal. He seems to want to feel out other genres and avoid typecasting and, »

True Blood's Ryan Kwanten meets Mickey Rourke in Blunt Force Trauma clip

2 October 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ryan Kwanten learnt a lot about guns as Jason Stackhouse in True Blood, and he'll be putting that to good use in his new film Blunt Force Trauma.

The Australian actor leads the cast of the new thriller, which also stars Mickey Rourke and Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto. Digital Spy has an exclusive clip from the film below:

Blunt Force Trauma follows the journey of John (Kwanten) and the aptly-named Colt (Pinto) as gunfighters and lovers, as they attempt to climb the ranks in the underground dueling world.

Speaking about the movie, Kwanten told us that it's not your typical Taken-style action film: "It really had some interesting existential throwbacks to the 1970s-style films, which I really like.

"I obviously grew up in the '70s, I remember my dad showing me High Plains Drifter when I was way too young! There was some nice allusions to that, »
