Crime Goes Backwards In Trailer For Netflix’s ‘Shimmer Lake’ Starring Rainn Wilson & Benjamin Walker

4 hours ago

Whichever side of the Netflix debate you’re on, there’s no arguing that sometimes they’re not the greatest advocates of their own original programming. Case in point: “Shimmer Lake.” The movie drops on the service in two weeks, and it’s only now getting a trailer, and something you might’ve only noticed if you were paying attention to YouTube.

Rainn Wilson and Benjamin Walker star in the directorial debut of screenwriter Oren Uziel (“22 Jump Street“), which tells a crime story with a narrative twist.

Here’s Why The Man From Another Place Didn’t Return For The ‘Twin Peaks’ Revival

4 hours ago

Last spring, David Lynch offered up fans one major piece of “Twin Peaks” information — the full, 217 names long cast list for the revival. From main roles to cameos, we found out every face we’re going to see across the full eighteen episode return, but there was a key figure missing: Michael J. Anderson aka The Man From Another Place. While he only appeared in four episodes of the original series, and in the prequel film, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” his impact was such that many assumed he would return.

Léonor Serraille’s ‘Jeune Femme’ Is A Triumphant Feature Debut Full Of Spark & Wit [Cannes Review]

5 hours ago

A woman pleads “Open the door!!” in a tiny corridor, banging away with her fist and head. Such is the frenetic opening scene of Léonor Serraille’s “Jeune Femme” — the story of Paula as played by an unforgettable Laetitia Dosch in a star-making turn — and not only is it a fitting metaphor for Paula’s predicament throughout the course of the film, but the zest, zing and determination felt in those opening seconds ripple throughout the entire next hour and a half.

Director Chad Stahelski Talks ‘John Wick 3,’ Promises More Cool Reveals Over Big Budget Setpieces

6 hours ago

When it comes to sequels, there’s always a balance between taking the big studio check and running with it, expanding the scope and size of the franchise, or being considered in how the world of the series is expanded. This winter’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” had the right touch of opening up the underground universe of assassins that we glimpsed in the original, and allowing the story to include more international locations, but never to the point of obscuring the film’s most important focus: John Wick.

The 20 Best Brad Pitt Movies

7 hours ago

Netflix has had no difficulty (thanks to their pots and pots of cash) in attracting big names to the streaming service. They convinced Kevin Spacey and David Fincher to enter the TV world, they’ve virtually monopolized the stand-up comedy circuit, and they’ve made two deals with Adam Sandler to make a total of eight movies. But this Friday sees probably the biggest A-lister they’ve yet attracted, with David Michôd’s dark satire “War Machine,” starring none other than Brad Pitt.

‘Charlie’s Angels’ Getting Another Big Screen Reboot

9 hours ago

As this weekend’s “Baywatch” proves, studios are more eager to turn whatever intellectual property they have on hand into a movie, rather than try bring something original to the big screen. The working theory is that it’s easier and cheaper to sell audiences on something they already kinda know, rather than getting them interested in something new. The practice is hardly groundbreaking, and way back in 2000, Sony/Columbia Pictures had some success turning the kitschy ’70s TV series “Charlie’s Angels,” into a kitschy movie.

9 hours ago

Countless masters of cinema have tried their hand at the historic Joan of Arc story, including Carl Theodor Dreyer, Victor Fleming, Robert Bresson and Jacques Rivette. Any of these filmmakers would make for a tough act to follow, but that didn’t dissuade Bruno Dumont from realizing his own take on the material, “Jeannette: The Childhood of Joan of Arc,” premiering in the Director’s Fortnight program of the Cannes Film Festival.

Tom Cruise Says ‘Top Gun 2’ Is “Definitely Happening” In The Next Year

10 hours ago

For almost as long as The Playlist has existed on the interwebs, there has been talk about a sequel to “Top Gun.” In fact, five years ago, Paramount had planned to make “Top Gun 2” before “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” but those plans fell apart. And over the years, numerous screenwriters have come and gone on the project, and the passing of director Tony Scott also added to the long wait.

11 hours ago

The masters of putting on a big media show, but not revealing anything, Disney and Lucasfilm have given Vanity Fair the most generous look yet at “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” And while the profile piece is extensive, with some details about the new characters, the shroud of secrecy still remains. However, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy did reveal that before Carrie Fisher sadly passed away last year, the plans for ‘Episode IX’ centered around the princess turned Rebel leader.

12 hours ago

The cautious curtain raising for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” continues this week as Vanity Fair reveals more from their latest issue dedicated to the upcoming blockbuster. And some fresh details have spilled about a couple of a new characters joining the ranks of the franchise.

Most significantly, it’s been revealed that Benicio Del Toro will be playing the enigmatically named DJ (which I’m sure is short for a much longer, more spoilery name), who plays an “unscrupulous drifter,” which the galaxy seems to be filled with.

Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Beguiled’ With Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell & Kirsten Dunst [Cannes Review]

14 hours ago

The greatest favor you can do for Sofia Coppola‘s “The Beguiled,” and yourself before you watch it, is to put all thoughts of Don Siegel‘s 1971 Clint Eastwood-starred film of the same name from your mind. As a standalone film, Coppola’s version abounds in pleasures: from the starry cast (at least four of whom almost coincidentally seem to be hitting their career-best strides at exactly the same moment) to Philippe Le Sourd‘s cinematography, all misty woods, dangling creepers and softly sparkling candlelit interiors.
