Get Behind The Scenes Of Carpenter Brut's Amazing Turbo Killer Music Video

1 hour ago

It was back at the end of February that we posted the amazing trailer for French electronic act Carpenter Brut's latest single Turbo Killer from the super talented directorial duo Seth Ickerman. If you've not seen that video yet you can find that original post here - and you really should - and if you have, well, now's your chance to see a bit of how they did it. The Ickermen are pretty much flat out geniuses when it comes to wringing maximum effect out of minimum dollars (or Euro) and they have just posted a nearly five minute long behind the scenes video from the making of Turbo Killer to give a little peek behind the curtain. It's well worthwhile. Check it out below....

New York Asian 2016 Review: What A Wonderful Family! Mixes Broad Comedy with Ozu's Legacy

10 hours ago

Yôji Yamada is a director known for retreading and reusing elements, both visual and in terms of plot, being the director of many series of movies that have been done across decades. While he really hasn't made a new series since the end of his Samurai Trilogy in 2006, he has recently favored the family chamber drama above any other, and in particular, he has decided to make countless references to the cinema of Yasujiro Ozu, being his most blatant a remake of the classic Tokyo Story, made in 2013 as Tokyo Family, which could be described as an homage as well as a demonstration of how little has changed in 60 years of Japanese family life. In his latest film, Yamada goes right into...

Edinburgh 2016: Taika Waititi's Hunt For The Wilderpeople Wins On Final Day Of Festival

10 hours ago

Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016 wrapped up over the weekend with a screening of its Closing Film and the announcement of the event’s final prize: the Audience Award. Fittingly Gillies MacKinnon’s warm-hearted and whiskey-soaked remake of Alexander Mackendrick’s Ealing Comedy classic Whiskey Galore played out the festival, while a man who’s carving out his own niche in classic comedies took the Award. Taika Waititi’s Hunt for the Wilderpeople proved a firm favorite with critics and audiences alike. Starring Sam Neill as a grizzled loner forced to go on the run with a young tear away, the exceptional Julian Dennison. The film is both hilarious and touching throughout and fully deserves the praise it has received. Other entries to score highly in the public vote included...

Top Thirteen Films of Maria Bava

11 hours ago

Top Thirteen Films of Mario Bava “Movies are a magician's forge, they allow you to build a story with your hands--at least, that's what it means to me. What attracts me in movies is to be presented with a problem and be able to solve it. Nothing else; just to create an illusion, an effect, with almost nothing.” –Mario Bava      Mario Bava was born on July 31, 1914 in the coastal northern Italian town of San Remo.  His father was a cinematographer in the early days of Italian cinema.  Bava made his film debut in the early 1940’s working on films that featured such names as Gina Lollobrigida, Steve Reeves and Aldo Fabrizi.  Bava was thrust into the position of director when then current...

Fan Cuong: Watch The Full Trailer For Vietnamese Rock And Roll Time Travel Comedy

11 hours ago

Call Charlie Nguyen's upcoming Fan Cuong the reverse Back To The Future. There's no going to hte past to get people together here, nope. Instead, in Fan Cuong, long haired rock and roll fan played by comedian Thai Hoa must travel back in time to prevent the singer of the most important band in Vietnamese history (Johnny Tri Nguyen) from abandoning it all for a woman. The solution, of course, is to land the woman before the singer can. It's a phenomenally silly premise from the entire creative team behind martial arts hit The Rebel and, true to form where these guys are concerned, the production value is absolutely top notch. We shared the first teaser a while back and that has now been followed...

The Frog Man Cometh In Trailer For Museum: The Serial Killer Is Laughing In The Rain

11 hours ago

Acclaimed - but little known outside of Japan - manga Museum: The Serial Killer Is Laughing In The Rain is the subject of an up coming live action adaptation in its native land and while the source material may be little known in this part of the world there are plenty of intriguing elements to draw attention to the film. The story here revolves around a police detective on the trailer of a mysterious frog-masked serial killer who becomes aware that his wife is likely an upcoming target. Oguri Shun - a frequent Miike Takashi collaborator - takes on the detective role while director Otomo Keishi made this his follow up film to the massive worldwide success of his Rurouni Kenshin live action adaptations.

Operation Chromite: Liam Neeson Is General MacArthur In Full Trailer For Korean War Film

12 hours ago

Telling the story of the decisive Battle of Incheon in the Korean War, John H Lee's Operation Chromite sports a hefty budget and at least one major international star in the form of Liam Neeson starring as General Douglas MacArthur. This one has been brewing for a while - we first commented on the casting of Neeson back in August of last year - but witht he film now moving towards a July release in Korea the full trailer has arrived so we can get a proper look. The verdict? Gorgeous production values, large scale action and a fairly steep decline on the English language side of things as soon as you get past Neeson. Lee Beom-su and Lee Jung-jae anchor the Korean side of...

Have Your Say: What Is Your Favorite Nicolas Winding Refn Film?

14 hours ago

Last week, Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon went into limited release in North America, to mixed results and a disappointing box office. Film critics are divided as well, some calling it the year's best, others calling it a shallow exercise in style over substance. In his review from Cannes earlier this year, our Jason Gorber called the film "Silly, sly, sexy and sordid,..." and "...a dark little burst of joy." The fact that there is a division at all is good news probably, because it means Refn is still doing stuff that's edgy enough to get people angry over it. Which brings us to our question of the week: what is your favorite Nicolas Winding Refn film? Chime in with your opinion, in the...

Inoue's Lone Wolf And Cub: Final Conflict Gets An English-Language Remake In 2017

14 hours ago

If you're an ardent chanbara cinema follower, this bit may concern you. Sp International Pictures's own Steven Paul (Ghost Rider (2007), Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance (2011), Tekken (2009), Tekken: Kazuya's Revenge (2014)) is now developing a live-action remake of Inoue Akira's 1993 film, Lone Wolf And Cub: Final Conflict which commences shooting in 2017. The film takes its cues from manga series author Koike Kazuo's 1970 Futabasha publication which ensued in manga follow-ups like "Lone Wolf 2100", as well as a six-part film franchise which led to two compiled U.S. versions, a television series and several stage plays. The epic ronin tale is set in the Tokugawa shogunate era and tells of Ogami Itto, the Shogun's elite enforcer and executioner who journeys the land...

Vigilante Diaries: Exclusive Clip With That Guy, Barry

15 hours ago

Christian Sesma's action flick Vigilante Diaries opened in limited cinemas across the U.S. back on Friday. ScreenAnarchy has an exclusive short to share with you.    In the clip we meet a few of the other players in the film including Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. As the film is meant to be a throwback to action flicks of the 90s(?) there are fast cars sitting idle, lots of alcohol, and loose women.    Then there is the crew's handler, Barry. Rampage wants to make sure we all know that Barry is known by a certain adjective so he repeats it when Barry walks into their den of iniquity.    Barry has a job for them. A big one. How big? Cue dated humor.    Jason Mewes...

Pretty Packaging: Arrow's Blood Bath Provides A Pool Of Different Versions

18 hours ago

When distributor Arrow announced their release of a title called Blood Bath, I assumed it would be another generic eighties'-slasher-with-its-own-peculiar-fans-who-consider-it-a-classic-though-i-have-never-heard-of-it. Looking a bit closer though, this turned out to be something much, much weirder, and Arrow's approach towards this release made it irresistible. Basically, Blood Bath is a weird little black-and-white vampire horror flick from 1966, produced by Roger Corman. Parts of it look really, Really beautiful though, and that is because they've been taken from another film entirely, a Yugoslavia-based crime thriller called Operation Titian. That film turned out to have a re-cut version with additional footage made for the Us as well, called Portrait in Terror, and Blood Bath itself got re-cut with additional footage again as Track of the Vampire. This release...

Review: The Truth Beneath Unearths Dark, Stylish Mysteries

20 hours ago

A great year for Korean genre cinema keeps getting better with the release of Lee Kyoung-mi's long time coming sophomore feature, the riveting The Truth Beneath, a sumptuous and anarchic political thriller, kidnap drama, suspenseful whodunnit and kaleidoscopic descent into delirium. Falling between the stylistic panache of Park Chan-wook's Lady Vengeance (2005), on which she was a scripter and assistant director, and the manic paranoia of Tetsuya Nakashima's Confessions (2010), Lee's latest features a career-best performance by Son Ye-jin in a narrative that occasionally gets mired in tonal vagaries. Son plays Yeon-hong, who stands by her husband's side as he enters a highly contested election for the national assembly. With just 15 days until election day, the couple's daughter disappears and when Yeon-hong delves into...

Scott Schirmer (Found, Harvest Lake) and his Band Motion Pictures, LLC imprint are running a new crowdfunding campaign for an icky little backwoods horror flick called Plank Face. Unllike most campaigns, this one is nearly at its goal and the film is actually already made, so there's no worrying about whether or not you'll see your funds go into something tangible. You can already buy a ticket to the film's world premiere on August 27th with key cast and crew in Columbus, Oh, click here.  Plank Face features a protagonist captured by a feral family of cannibals who want him for their tribe. “It deals with our primal nature,” states Schirmer. “The characters in Plank Face live like wild animals, but they’re also very free.

The 9th Life Of Louis Drax Trailer Arrives And, Seriously, Can We Have The Alex Aja Conversation Now?

27 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT

It was all the way back in January of 2015 that the first image of 50 Shades star Jamie Dornan in Alexandre Aja's The 9th Life Of Louis Drax arrived online. And if you - like many film fans - have caught yourself wondering from time to time how on earth it can possibly take 18 months from releasing imagery to having a trailer online the answer appears to be the obvious one. They've been sitting on it because it doesn't look very good. And here's the thing: As I watched the trailer I suddenly realized that I wasn't surprised by this, not at all. My lack of surprise wasn't down to the gap of time between shooting the film, starting the marketing train with...

Operation Mekong Trailer Feels Like A Misfire From Dante Lam

27 June 2016 1:30 PM, PDT

It wasn't so long ago - just back as the 2000's rolled into double digits - that Hong Kong's Dante Lam made the transition from being a journeyman jobbing director into one of the world's finest purveyors of large scale, hyper kinetic action cinema. 2008 effort Beast Stalker led the charge with 2010 releases Fire Of Conscience and Stool Pigeon seeming to seal the deal to the point that he was being regularly name dropped in the company of John Woo and Johnnie To and not feeling at all out of place. But things haven't been as smooth for Lam since. 2012's The Viral Factor was certainly not a failure but met a far more mixed reception than his previous work. 2013 boxing drama Unbeatable...

New Star Trek Beyond Trailer Goes Where No One Has Gone Before

27 June 2016 1:00 PM, PDT

I have no idea what to expect from Star Trek Beyond. Oh, I've been keeping up with the marketing and, especially, the trailers. The first one, released back in December, appeared to promise a "goofy adventure," as our own Todd Brown described it. I wasn't completely on board, but the second trailer appeared to reassure longtime fans (including myself) that the ship would be sailing as normally would be expected. And now a new trailer has popped, which seems to harken back to the goofy nature of the first trailer (from a visual standpoint, at least), as well as acknowledge (in spirit) the sad, untimely passing of Anton Yelchin. To be sure, Yelchin's Chekov has not been a major player in the first two installments...

Morgan Trailer: Familiar Thriller Territory, And Yet...

27 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT

Every fiber of my being wants to resist Morgan. It looks so familiar: an isolated facility, a scientific experiment that goes wrong, man tampering with things he ought not. But then the actors show up: Kate Mara, Toby Jones, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rose Leslie, and Paul Giamatti acting all snarly and nasty. And the dark, swirling mood kicks in... By the time the countdown begins, sounding like nothing more than a rip-off of Alien, it really should be too much. But the director is Luke Scott, son of Ridley Scott, and maybe some of those genes are what's kicking in and making me want to watch a familiar genre thriller to see if it can bring something new and unexpected to the formula. We shall...
