Sensoria: Chilling New Trailer For Christian Hallman's Swedish Haunter

10 hours ago

Haunted apartments are the worst! The small college I went to was pretty much a six story building with a creepy basement. Seriously. No one liked going down there at night. It is especially weird because it was a faith based school. You'd think we'd have already exorcised the demons or ghosts or whatever was down there at night. Cinema's history is rife with examples of building complexes gone bad and Swedish director Christian Hallman is looking to add his film Sensoria to that list. We have the brand new trailer to share with you. Take a look."Sensoria" follows Caroline Menard, a woman in her late thirties, who has lost almost everything she cares for in the world and is searching for a new beginning. She...

Have Your Say: Which Actor/Actress Would You Like To Hop Into The Star Wars Universe?

12 hours ago

(Oi! The article is down here!) Yesterday, the biggest news was probably the announcement that Donnie Yen might be joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode VIII (mentioned here). Before that, there was much rejoicing when Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman, all three of them famous fighters from the two The Raid films, were confirmed in the cast of Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Such name-dropping, whether as rumor or as confirmed fact, never fails to get me to start imagining things, scenes, plotlines. We all have our favorite not-yet-made Star Wars playing in our head somewhere, same as we all have our favorite not-yet-made Batman or Superman. Which brings me to my question of the week: which actor have you...

Now On DVD: Downtown 81 Captures A Lost New York, For Good And For Bad

6 July 2015 3:00 PM, PDT

In its best moments, Downtown 81 achieves a rare state of transcendence, wiping away the mists of time and making the Manhattan that existed in 1981 come alive once again. Too bad those moments are few and far between. Written by Glenn O'Brien, directed by Edo Bertoglio, and starring Jean Michel Basquiat in his only dramatic performance, Downtown 81 is structured around 24 hours in the life of an artist who gets locked out of his apartment and then spends the day rambling around the city, wondering what to do with his life. The narrative is loosely assembled, with all the dialogue apparently added and synched in post-production. To be kind, I'll note the low, low budget, and pass on to what holds the greatest...

Marshy's Favourite Asian Movies Of 2015 Part 1

6 July 2015 2:00 PM, PDT

I'm just going to come out and say it: 2015 has been a really disappointing year for Asian Cinema so far. I didn't get to go to Cannes, so I have yet to see promising offerings from the likes of Hou Hsiao Hsien, Jia Zhangke, Koreeda Hirokazu and Apichatpong Weerasethakul among others, but what has made its way to screens in Hong Kong so far in 2015 has been a meagre selection of notable works.Before I dive into my Top 10 for the first half of the year, I will give special mentions to Jiang Wen's Gone With The Bullets, Herman Yau's Sara, Yoo Ha's Gangnam Blues, Adrian Kwan's Little Big Master and Narushima Izuru's Solomon's Perjury - all of which displayed elements of interest,...

Heil: Watch The Trailer For German Neo-Nazi Satire

6 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT

While you may not expect a broad comedy from the normal super serious director of Stations Of The Cross, that is exactly what Dietrich Brüggemann has delivered with his latest effort Heil. Already in wide release in Germany and a selection at the ongoing Karlovy Vary festival in the Czech Republic, Heil is a go-for-broke political satire about a neo-Nazi group who capture a black, amnesiac left wing writer and brainwash him to go out delivering their white supremacist message. Because what could be better than a white-power spouting black man on daytime television, right?This is obviously very touchy subject matter in Germany and after so many uber-serious treatments of the nation's past it's more than a little refreshing to see someone give the whole...

Because In Finland Dinosaurs Mean Metal. Heavy Metal. Behold The Heavisaurus.

6 July 2015 12:00 PM, PDT

Oh, Finland, you're just wacky. While their Norwegian neighbors seem to prefer their heavy metal music to be of the dark and serious variety, the Finns like to dress things up a bit. There's Lordi, of course, the Eurovision-winning metal act whose members dress in elaborate demon makeups for their performances. But popular as Lordi may be they may be a bit too extreme for the youngster set and so cue up Heavisaurus, a heavy metal act for the kiddie crowd whose members are all dinosaurs.And now, like Lordi, Heavisaurus have a feature film to call their own. Story? It's got dinosaurs playing heavy metal. Check out the trailer below....

Interview: Adam Elliot On Being An Animator, Winning An Oscar And Feeling Like An Outsider

Review: Self/Less Wants To Be Something More, Whatever That Means

6 July 2015 10:01 AM, PDT

No one in sound mind and body wants to die, and that includes Ben Kingsley in the new film by Tarsem Singh. The director made his feature debut with the visually-striking The Cell in 2000, which raised expectations for bizarre and ambitious The Fall (2006), which was also sumptuous in appearance, if narratively lacking. Since then, he has made Immortals (reviewed here) and Mirror Mirror (reviewed here), two films that continued to demonstrate his preference (and reliance) for imagery and motion over story and sense. As far as the visuals are concerned, Self/Less represents the director's most reality-bound effort yet, following along as the very wealthy New York real-estate developer Damian (Kingsley affecting a New Yawk accent) comes to a decision about his future. Damian...

Bartkira Arrives In Neo-Springfield! Watch The Trailer Now!

6 July 2015 9:30 AM, PDT

It was back in March that we first caught wind of Bartkira, the animated fusion of Akira and The Simpsons from Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey. And while the duo always intended their fan generated project as a simple trailer to see if it could be done the artwork that spread back in the spring created such a stir that you can't help but wonder if they've given any thought to expanding the scope of their creation. And hopes for that will only rise further now that the full trailer has arrived as well.Humphrey and Harvey have created something pretty remarkable here, a fusion clearly based out of a deep love and respect for both properties that is pretty much pitch perfect to both. This...

Antigang: Jean Reno Anchors New French Action Comedy. Watch The Trailer!

6 July 2015 8:30 AM, PDT

Throughout his long career, iconic French star Jean Reno's films have tended to fall into one of two camps. On the one side - the side that tends to export the most and be most seen by foreign audiences - there are his serious action pieces, films that capitalize on the success of Luc Besson's Leon: The Professional with Reno as an often violent antihero. And on the other side - the side that really pays the bills back in France - Reno is a highly sought after comedic lead. The two sides of Reno seldom meet but director Benjamin Rocher looks to be delivering the comedic and the action oriented Reno in equal measure with the upcoming Antigang.The formula here looks familiar enough with...

6 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

It's Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong is director Emily Ting's love letter to Hong Kong. With breathtaking panoramas and a Before Sunrise-style romance between two ex-pats, played by rising stars and real-life couple, Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg, the trio spoke with me about how actual experience and creative location shooting formed this portrait of the Pearl of the Orient.The Lady Miz Diva:  Tell us about the inspiration for this project? Emily Ting:  I had lived in Hong Kong for five years as an ex-pat, so I know the city very intimately, not like I just plucked Hong Kong out at random.  When I lived there, I really wanted to make a movie there.  When I was living there, I was always lamenting, 'Oh, I...
