Emily S. Whitten: Awesome Con Round Up

17 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Sweet Christmas, everyone – this year’s Awesome Con was busy as all get-out and chock-full of cool things to see and do, and con season is rushing by so fast that I’m just now getting to my recap! (We can also blame the con crud for this, alas. It’s been following me around for a solid month.) As always, there were way more activities than one mere mortal could get to. And on top of that, this was the first year where I really saw multiple events surrounding the con that were either not directly affiliated with the con but inspired by it, or connected to it but not part of the main con experience.

So let’s start there. First off, I was part of a pre-con round-table interview Awesome Con set up with the inestimable Stan Lee. Stan answered many great questions. He talked about what »

While promoting the international release of his hit movie, the director revealed that it still could happen, at some point.

"I'm not ruling out a sequel idea. It has been spoken about and I have some cool ideas, so we'll see where that goes. Then I'll be one of those franchise guys!"

Edgar Wright revealed in his July interview that the studio (Sony Pictures) has asked him to come up with some ideas for the sequel, adding that there are more places for Baby (Ansel Elgort »

Watch: Ansel Elgort And Eiza González On Edgar Wright's Baby Driver

16 August 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Edgar Wright’s latest film, Baby Driver, is a fantastic beast, with some of the most intense car chases in recent memory, as well as a tasty soundtrack that basically never stops and that is used in the most precise way. Since the movie is now playing in Mexico under the title Baby: El aprendiz del crimen, I interviewed two of its protagonists: Ansel Elgort and Eiza González. Elgort plays the titular character, a master driver who is ready to leave crime and get together with the girl of his dreams (Debora, played by Lily James) after being used for many years by Doc, an extremely dangerous criminal (Kevin Spacey). Due to a car crash, Baby has suffered from tinnitus since he was a little boy,...

Edgar Wright’s latest effort was a big hit with fans and critics alike, scoring an 86 on metacritic and currently sitting 8.2 on IMDb read our reviews here, here and here].

Importantly, this has translated into box office success as well, with the film now having crossed the $100 million barrier in seven weeks of release. The film starring Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver has also accumulated $67 million overseas. Working off a $34 million budget, this will be seen as a nice success for the film and big win for its director, Edgar Wright.

Baby Driver isn’t quite done yet of course, and has yet to open in certain markets, including Japan, Russia, China, Italy, and South Korea. With these big locations still to come, it should add quite a few pennies in the weeks and months ahead. »

‘Dunkirk’ Cast: Where You’ve Seen Christopher Nolan’s Ensemble Before

19 July 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” is finally upon us after months of anticipation, and it’s clear the long wait has been worth it. IndieWire has named the WWII epic the best movie Christopher Nolan has ever made and a certain Oscar contender in the months ahead. As audiences nationwide get to discover why the film is such a monumental war epic, questions as to who exactly is in the cast are bound to come up.

Unlike Nolan’s recent star-driven efforts like “Inception” and “Interstellar,” “Dunkirk” features an eclectic mix of relative newcomers, Oscar winners and the director’s reliable collaborators. Getting a blend of known and unknown talent was crucial for Nolan, as including too many stars would’ve distracted from the urgent nature of the story. In following mostly fresh faces, Nolan is »

The Disappointing Reason Baby Driver Doesn't Live Up to the Hype

17 July 2017 3:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You've probably heard a lot of buzz around the new Edgar Wright film, Baby Driver. The action flick follows Baby (Ansel Elgort), a talented young getaway driver who gets sucked into a life of crime working for a kingpin (Kevin Spacey) after being in a car accident as a child, which killed his parents and left him with a constant ringing in his ears that he blocks out by listening to music through his headphones. The film is getting fantastic reviews and even has a 95 percent critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but unfortunately I'm here to tell you it just doesn't live up to the hype. Don't get me wrong - Baby Driver has a lot of redeeming qualities. It has an awesome cast, including not only Elgort and Spacey, but also Jon Hamm, Lily James, Eiza González, and Jamie Foxx. It has a killer soundtrack that includes songs from Barry White, »

It's Time for the "Darkest Hour"

14 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Remember a few short years ago when Gary Oldman, after decades of brilliance, was finally an Oscar nominee for Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy? Well, it looks like he could be prepping another go of awards season, but this time it might be for a performance that finds the actor on the unrecognizable side of his chameleonic abilities. The last time he had this level of makeup on we got his delicious and underrated Dracula, but now Oldman is donning some impressive prosthetics to play Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's period piece Darkest Hour.

Though Joe Wright's previous period work like Atonement and Anna Karenina have sparked with some inventive presentation, for the trailer this looks like a little bit more of the familiar. No matter, considering Oldman is firing on all cylinders for some juicy dramatics as the Prime Minister - the actor is definitely the show here. »

Darkest Hour trailer, starring Gary Oldman

13 July 2017 10:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jul 14, 2017

The second of the two competing Winston Churchill movies edges closer. Here's the trailer for Darkest Hour...

Remember the summer when Deep Impact and Armageddon went head to head at the box office? Well, it’s sort of the same this year. Just with, er, Winston Churchill.

See related  Thor: Ragnarok – first trailer analysis Black Panther: loads of new images arrive Spider-Man: Homecoming review

We’ve already had the release of Churchill, starring Brian Cox. A film that without Brian Cox in it would have been a pretty forgettable movie. Director Joe Wright is next to have a go, though, with Darkest Hour, which lands in cinemas later this year. Well, that’s if you’re in the Us. Us in the UK have to wait until January 12th 2018, which sort of knackers my first paragraph up.

Onwards, though, for we have the first trailer and official synopsis for the movie. »

Oscar voters have long shown an affinity for World War II. Furthermore, members of the Academy make no secret how baity a good biopic is to them. Earlier, we finally got a Trailer for a film that checks off all of those boxes. It’s Darkest Hour, the Winston Churchill biopic that seems tailer made for awards season. As an added bonus, it features acclaimed actor Gary Oldman in the starring role, giving him a chance to truly contend for a statue, as he only has a single nomination to his credit so far. You can see the Trailer at the end of this piece, but as always, a bit of discussion is in order first. The movie looks at the time at the outset of the second World War, specifically as Winston Churchill (Oldman) became a comprise and unpopular choice for Prime Minister. Literally within days of taking the »

See Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill in Official 'Darkest Hour' Trailer

13 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You cannot reason with a tiger when your head is in its mouth!" Focus Features has unveiled the first trailer for Joe Wright's Darkest Hour, the second film this year about Winston Churchill (the other one is called Churchill starring Brian Cox). This is the film that stars the very talented Gary Oldman under heavy prosthetic as Winston Churchill, giving a powerful, commanding cigar-chomping performance. The focus in this film is on Churchill's first few days as Prime Minister, deciding whether or not to agree to a peace treaty with Nazi Germany or fight back and rally the troops. The cast includes Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Stephen Dillane, Kristin Scott Thomas, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Ronald Pickup, Nicholas Jones, Hannah Steele, Richard Lumsden, and Jeremy Child. This looks much, much better than the other Churchill film. And hopefully this will get Oldman an Oscar nomination - it definitely seems possible. »
