Andy Serkis Jungle Book movie gets a new title

Speaking to Variety, Serkis said:

“[That title is] not 100%, but it’s more than likely heading in that direction,” Serkis told the trade. “Because it’s much more about that character. It’s a Mowgli-centric story. It’s about identity. The film really examines, in a tone that’s much closer to Rudyard Kipling’s book, what it is to be other.”

‘Jungle’ Review: Dir. Greg McLean (2017)

2 hours ago

Jungle review: Daniel Radcliffe continues his quest to distance himself from his previous wizarding worlds with this engaging survival tale, based on a true story.

Jungle review by Steve Palace

Jungle review

In the early Eighties, aspiring Israeli adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg was travelling in Bolivia, having a typical travelogue-type experience and hanging out with some newfound friends: rugged man’s man Kevin and soulful intellectual Marcus. However when Yossi met the mysterious Karl, who offered him the journey of a lifetime into the rainforest in search of a “hidden world”, the young backpacker jumped at the chance.

With his two pals joining the trek, they entered unknown territory. But with an odd and slightly sinister character for a guide, fraying tensions between the men and the savagery of the jungle stalking their every step, was this going to be an odyssey or a horror fest?

Turns out it’s a bit of both. »

2017 has been a wonderful year for superheroes.

Watch The ‘I Love You, Daddy’ Trailer With Louis C.K. and Chloë Grace Moretz

19 October 2017 1:54 AM, PDT

After its debut at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer for Louis C.K.’s new film I Love You, Daddy has debuted online. Louis C.K. and Chloë Grace Moretz are amongst the cast of the film, which looks very reminiscent of Woody Allen’s film work. We sadly missed the film at Tiff but are really interested in what he’s done here.

I Love You, Daddy is a bittersweet comedy about successful TV writer/producer Glen Topher (C.K.), who panics when his spoiled 17-year-old daughter China (Chloë Grace Moretz) starts spending time with 68-year-old Leslie Goodwin (John Malkovich), a legendary film director with a reputation for dating underage girls. Conceived in the high style of 1940s Hollywood movies, with lustrous black and white 35mm photography and a soaring orchestral score, I Love You, Daddy blends a classic look with Louis C.K.’s raucous modern comic sensibility »

Lff 2017: ‘The Summit (La Cordillera)’ Review: Dir. Santiago Mitre (2017)

19 October 2017 12:31 AM, PDT

The Summit review: Santiago Mitre’s third feature film tackles politics, power, and psychology in this dramatic thriller that leaves many questions unanswered.

The Summit review by Tina Baraga.

Hernán Blanco (Ricardo Darin) is Argentina’s “president of the people”, a man with little experience whose sudden ascent from small-town mayor to the country’s leader has left many surprised. When we meet Blanco, he is on his way to a summit of Latin American presidents in the Chilean Andes. Briefed and commandeered by his team, he seems to be a passive man, perfectly matching a journalist’s cheeky description as “the invisible president”.

His political negotiations at the summit are clouded by the arrival of his unstable daughter Marina (Dolores Fonzi) and the blackmailing threats of her ex-husband. Suddenly the film takes a turn from political drama to psychological thriller. Enlisting the help of his advisor Luisa (Erica Rivas »

David Fincher, is one of the most visually arresting filmmakers working on the planet today. With films like Seven, Fight Club, Alien 3, Zodiac and the new Netflix TV series Mindhunter amongst his glowing resume, all share one particular thing, and like the creator of the following video describes, one couldn’t quite understand why his films grab your attention so much – until now.

It all seems to be down to one very simple thing, which ‘Nerdwriter1’ describes in his equally absorbing video tutorial. It’s all down to the camera moves employed in all of his films.

If you were to go back and check out any of Fincher’s work – from Gone Girl to the 2011 remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – you’ll find one thing that is the same in all of them – a simple camera move. With the use of a title, a tracking shot, »
