Interview: Orphan Black's Ari Millen Talks New Clones And Surprises For Season 3

5 hours ago

When Ari Millen started out on Orphan Black in the second season, he was most definitely in the background as supporting character Mark. There's no doubt he had a confident and attention-grabbing screen presence, but there was still little to suggest he'd be involved in one of the most important twists on the show so far, as his one character became many with the revelation of a line of male clones in the Season 2 finale.His character was originally meant to die a few episodes into his arc, and it's no understatement to suggest that Ari essentially worked himself into the role by bringing so much more to Mark than was on the page. Now, though, he's got a big task ahead, continuing to play...

Night Visions 2015: American Burger Serves Up Cross-Cultural Beef

9 hours ago

Watching an English-language splatter comedy, made in Sweden by a married British / Swedish couple, at a film festival in Helsinki, Finland, in a bar converted into a screening room, certainly ranks among my top 10 most unusual cross-cultural experiences in life so far. Granted, splatter comedies are not my favorite form of horror movies; what strikes others as riotousy funny often makes me groan deep inside my aged body. To its advantage, however, American Burger does not pretend to be anything other than what it is. Filled with broad comedy, it's the story of a bus-load of dumb American kids on a summer trip in Europe who make the mistake of stopping at a burger processing center for a tour, only to discover that...

Nsfw Trailer: Matteo Garrone's Cannes Entry Tale Of Tales Is An Insane, Bloody Fairy Tale

10 hours ago

Shooting straight to the top of any self-respecting fantasy fan's must-watch list should be Matteo Garrone's (Gomorrah, Reality) latest, Tale Of Tales, which has just been announced as debuting in competition at next month's Cannes Film Festival. Brimming with kings & queens, monsters & magic, blood, gore and sex, The Tale Of Tales is a classic medieval fantasy that looks to out-crazy even the likes of John Boorman's Excalibur and Terry Gilliam's Time Bandits. With an all-star cast including John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel and Toby Jones, Tale Of Tales is based on the writings of 17th Century Italian author Giambattista Basile, and judging by this slightly unsafe for work trailer, looks absolutely fantastic. Check it out for yourself....

Batman Vs Superman: Watch The Trailer, For Realsies This Time

18 hours ago

All it takes is a wingnut with their camera phone to vault the promotion machine into action. After yesterday's nanosecond leak of the first Batman vs Superman trailer the studio had to take action. Thus, via Zack Snyder's twitter account, the trailer was officially released! Probably not the ideal time, right after the internet melted down yesterday because of that other movie. But go ahead and have a look for yourself. We open the floor to you to tell us what you think of it? I'll start. Is it me or does Bat's suit look like a grade school paper maché project? Or, "I painted over the plaster cast after Supes shit-kicked you into oblivion, Master Bruce. You can hardly tell where he crush your ribs into dust....

Check Out The First Teaser For Ishii Takashi's Violent Crime Thriller Gonin Saga

17 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT

A riveting piece of cinema that plays like a superb combination of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Kitano 'Beat' Takeshi films circa 1993, Ishii Takashi's unrelentingly violent, socially conscious 1995 neo-noir thriller Gonin (sometimes translated as The Five) undeniably served as one of the most satisfying additions to the yakuza gangster genre of the the 20th century. Following the collapse of Japan's bubble economy in 1991, the film centers on five men trying to steal a large sum of cash from local gangsters. Their hastily prepared plan doesn't go well and they end up being followed by contract killers.Due to the original feature's huge success both in Japan and abroad, Ishii decided to make Gonin 2 only a year later with an almost all-female cast, but the...

The Boy And The Beast: Full Trailer For Hosoda Mamoru's Latest

17 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT

[Updated with English subtitled version.]There is no question about it: Hosoda Mamoru has got a very good chance of becoming the new king of anime. His last three films, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars and The Wolf Children, are very different films and each has its own fans and supporters. Yet, they have just one thing in common: they are all great animated films. Now that Studio Ghibli has stopped making feature films, at least for the time being, the world's anime fans are in need of a new Japanese animated feature that will enthrall, delight and fascinate them. Hosoda's new film, The Boy And The Beast, which is due for release in Japan on July 11, may just be the film they...

The Many Faces Of Domhnall Gleeson

17 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

Alex Garland's Ex Machina is currently doing great business: still in a successful theatrical run in its home country of the United Kingdom, the limited release in the Us so far has seen a staggeringly high box office (60,000 dollars for each screen in its opening weekend!), causing the distributor to consider a wide expansion for it in the coming weeks. On top of that Ex Machina is picking up awards at festivals, and the gender politics shown in the film are widely discussed. Shelagh Rowan-Legg likes the film somewhat but is disappointed by it, as she explains in her review. Indeed, the film doesn't shy away from the murky waters of misogyny and sexploitation. The moral high ground in the film is mostly provided...

Crowdfund This! HotDocs Selection Doglegs Needs Your Help To Wrap Things Up!

17 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

How's this for an assurance of quality for prospective crowd funders? Not only is Heath Cozens' feature documentary Doglegs very nearly complete but it is already selected to premiere at the prestigious HotDocs festival in Toronto. But don't you need to be complete to premiere? Not really, actually ... while you need to be rather close to complete there's actually quite a significant difference between being ready to screen in a festival environment and being complete enough to deliver to a distributor and find your way to a mass audience, and bridging that gap can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Cozens is looking for eighteen grand to get over that hump.And why should you support him? Well, because the film looks absolutely fantastic, for...

Review: Hungarian Western Mirage, A Visually Opulent Slavery Allegory

17 April 2015 4:00 AM, PDT

The Hungarian director of Bibliotheque Pascal, Szabolcs Hajdu, returns with yet another not so conventional oeuvre, Mirage. After the world premiere held at Toronto last year, the film enters the Slovak and Czech theatre circuit (Slovakia is a minor co-producer on the film) with the blessings of the lead character himself and a star from Jarmusch´ stable, Isaach de Bankolé, who promoted the film at the recently wrapped Febiofest film festival. "Far away from the capital city, country life perished. Criminal gangs occupy abandoned farms, bringing back slavery,"... These prefatory titles welcome viewers while explicitly disclosing the central theme they are about to witness. Francis (Isaach de Bankolé), who is on the run for bribing and match-fixing, nonchalantly walks the plain until arriving at a rural...

Istanbul 2015 Review: These Are The Rules Provokes With Civil Horror

17 April 2015 3:00 AM, PDT

Dramas which keep the tension tightly under the lid while eschewing a boiling melodramatic outburst can be challenging. On the other hand, de-dramatized dramas with smoother edges are easier to chew on for laid-back, cerebral viewers. Croatian director Ognjen Sviličić demonstrates the mastery of combining both approaches in his fifth feature, These Are the Rules.Bus driver Ivo (Emir Hadzihafizbegovic) and his spouse Maja (Jasna Zalica) are an ordinary middle-aged couple living a routine life in a block of apartments. Their calm and unexcited life peppered by everyday bickering will soon come crashing down as the parents discover their teenage son has been severely beaten. Tomica (Hrvoje Vladisavljevic) comes home one morning, just as his parents are getting up. They let him recuperate the missing...

Night Visions 2015 Review: Serial Killer Culture, Why So Fascinating?

17 April 2015 2:00 AM, PDT

What drives ordinary-looking men and women to become obsessed with serial killers? Is it a dark corner of their psyche that makes them feel that they have something in common with horrible people who have caused untold pain and suffering to dozens upon dozens of victims and their families? As revealed in John Borowski's surprisingly compelling documentary Serial Killer Culture, the answers are more varied than might be expected. Borowski spends a varied amount of time with each interview subject in turn; nearly all are defensive about their obsession, which is understandable. Yet all are able to recall what started them on the path toward learning more about serial killers, sometimes an innocuous incident in their youth that pushed them in that direction. "I agree...

Inside Out: Did Everyone's First Day At A New School Start Like This?

16 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Disney-Pixar's Inside Out will have its World Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this Summer the first clip from the film has been released. In the clip, Joy, voiced by Amy Pohler, is super excited about Riley's first day at school. She checks in with Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to make sure they all know their roles for the day. I cannot recall if my mind raced around this much when I was starting at a new school. If I knew that meteor strikes were a possibility I might have been a bit more concerned. And I cannot help but think that all of Amy Pohler's years on Parks and...

The Hateful Eight Gets A CGI Teaser

16 April 2015 2:30 PM, PDT

Update: As of this time the teaser, originally linked below, is offline for unknown reasons. We'll update again when, and if, there is more information to share.The Weinstein Company have either a shockingly bad sense of timing, or a huge pair of cajones to finally drop online the month's old theatrical teaser for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight at pretty much the same moment the internet focuses its gaze on the latest Star Wars trailer.And strangely, for a director who does most things in camera because he doesn't want to 'stick my  dick in my Nintendo' (his words), this teaser trailer is 100% CGI. Counting up the characters, and offering their nicknames is the raison d'etre here, but please don't hate, that takes eight.Set six or...

"Chewie, We're Home" - Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer 2

16 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT

The latest tease for the next Star Wars film was officially released during the latest "Celebration" fan convention, and is now online.With an hour-long presentation by J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and a bunch of cast and crew (including an almost magical appearance by BB8, the don't-know-how-they-did-that-but-probably-with-magnets stood that wobbled out on stage), fans were treated to this latest peek into what's to come next December.From a wide establishing shot that passes a downed Imperial Star Destroyer (with a crashed fighter in front), to Tie Fighters, X-Wings and the Falcon sweeping through, the nostalgia on this one is set to the highest level, making many giddy at the return.All the right things are being said - it's a return of sorts to the "used universe" of...

Check Out The New Trailer And Poster For Miike's Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War Of The Underworld

16 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT

A new one-minute trailer for Miike Takashi's batshit-crazy-sounding action-thriller Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War of the Underworld (極道大戦争) has gone online today. With plenty of fresh footage and a peek at some of the wild set pieces, the action-heavy trailer serves as an introduction to the to the various characters and the actors who portray them in the film. It also offers a quick glimpse of the mysterious Kaeru-kun, apparently one of the deadliest thugs the underworld has ever known. The trailer features the film's theme song "Bite" by Japanese rock band Knock Out Monkey.Miike stated in an interview last year that he's going back to his roots with this tale of a yakuza who turns into a vampire to help his boss take revenge against an...
