30 minutes ago

It's one thing to make lots fancy camera moves to impress an audience; that's almost too easy. It's an entirely another to hold viewers mesmerized by just a few well chosen frames. And by all accounts, Hou Hsiao-Hsien did just that with "The Assassin" this year at the Cannes Film Festival. And you can take a look at more of his gorgeous camera work in this new full length, English subtitled, trailer or the film. Chang Chen and Shu Qi star in the 9th century China set tale that follows an assassin, raised and trained in exile, who is sent on a mission back to her home town. Here's the synopsis from Cannes:  9th century China. 10-year-old general's daughter Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts, transforming her into an exceptional assassin charged with eliminating cruel and corrupt local governors.

Watch: 8 Minutes Of Stylish Footage From Guy Ritchie's 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'

1 hour ago

With Paramount turning 1960s TV series "Mission: Impossible" into a massive, successful franchise, Warner Bros. is hoping to do the same with their vintage, small screen property, "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." In the works for years at the studio, it's finally hitting the big screen this month with Guy Ritchie doing his thing behind the camera and an ensemble of fresh faces leading the way. How did it turn out? Well, eight minutes of footage will certainly give you an impression if WB can join their rivals in spy game success. Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Debicki, Jared Harris and more lead the story of American and Russian secret agents who have to put aside their differences and work together. Let's hope that Cold War backdrop feels a bit more refreshing than it does on paper. Here's the official synopsis:  Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, »

Ridley Scott Will Reportedly Start Shooting 'Prometheus 2' In January 2016

1 hour ago

Back in 2014, Fox set up their upcoming slate, and for a while, March 4, 2016 was occupied by what was supposed to be the long talked about "Prometheus 2." But as things go, Ridley Scott shuffled around projects, wound up making the sci-fi "The Martian" instead which opens this fall, while that spring date for next year is now occupied by Tim Burton's "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children." However, if this latest chatter is to be believed, Scott hasn't left "Prometheus 2" far behind. In the latest issue of Total Film (print edition), it says amidst a profile of "The Martian," that Scott will shoot "Prometheus 2" in January 2016. “I’ve got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it,” he told the magazine. We'll see how this actually plays out, as it raises a lot of questions. What about Neill Blomkamp's "Alien" movie? Will Fox be developing »

Christopher McQuarrie Says “Showcase” Villain Scene Cut From 'Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation'

2 hours ago

Who says that Tom Cruise is damaged goods at the domestic box office? Taking $56 million at home, and another $65 million abroad, "Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation" is not just a hit, but there's already talk of a sequel. Cruise recently said "Mission: Impossible 6" could shoot as soon as next summer, and Paramount confirmed a follow up is in the works. “We’re very happy to be developing this movie with Tom,” studio honcho Rob Moore told Variety. “There’s no question that Ethan Hunt deserves another film.” But, for all this good cheer, it's almost a miracle the movie landed without a hitch. Drew Pearce ("Iron Man 3") penned the initial draft of 'Rogue Nation' before moving to work on other projects, leaving writer/director Christopher McQuarrie to re-draft as the movie was gearing up. "Once you start making small changes, it sets off a chain reaction that rearranges everything until »

Review And Recap: 'True Detective' Season 2, Episode 7 'Black Maps And Motel Rooms'

2 hours ago

With “True Detective” wrapping up, there’s a possibility we might even miss this show. Yes, it’s easy to make fun of, but that’s just the thing: there’s some fun to be had, even if it’s at the show’s expense. You can’t say they didn’t try, and if it was a big swing and a miss, a big swing is at least worth discussing. The penultimate episode, “Black Maps and Motel Rooms,” directed by veteran TV director Daniel Attias, was, in a way, one of the best of the season. But like many of the episodes, while it had its moments of real intrigue and suspense, it also drifted into a noir fantasy-land where the characters in no way resemble or act like real people. If one thing is consistent, though, it’s the season’s nihilistic worldview, which truly comes into focus in this episode. »
