4 December 2014 6:00 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Marvel Studios have now officially confirmed that Brit actor Benedict Cumberbatch ("The Imitation Game") will play Marvel Comics' "Doctor Strange", in the prepping "Doctor Strange" superhero feature, to be directed by Scott Derrickson from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts:

Pre-production is now underway @ the UK's Pinewood-Shepperton with principal photography scheduled for May 2015.

"(Strange) is a classic Marvel origin story, because he’s got one of the best origins ever, and it’s our opportunity to take that left turn into the supernatural," said Marvel Studios Kevin Feige

"Now what is the definition of ‘supernatural’? It varies...based in physics and based in quantum mechanics...an explanation of how sorcerers do what they do..."

Director Derrickson is no stranger to the 'occult', having previously directed "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and "Sinister".

"I wanted it really bad," said Derrickson. "More than any other project that I've gone after, I »

The unmade Star Wars: Underworld TV show – details surface

12 June 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As pointed out in a previous news story, it’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan. We have J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII currently being filmed, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards directing a spin-off movie and Chronicle‘s Josh Trank doing another. But one Star Wars spin-off that looks like we’ll never see is the live-action TV show Star Wars: Underworld. It had long been rumoured but there wasn’t much really revealed about it – until now.

In a video on his Kickstarter page for his Indiana Jones fan film Army of the Lost Horizon, Stephen Scaia dropped some big hints about what the show might have entailed. “[I was] a big fan of Lucas and Spielberg my whole life, especially Indiana Jones and Star Wars,” Scaia explains on his Kickstarter page. “When I heard there was the thought of a live-action Star Wars show happening, I pushed »

Could A Discarded Star Wars TV Series Lead To A Han Solo Prequel?

11 June 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Perhaps you've heard of something called Star Wars Underworld. This was meant to be LucasFilms' foray into Star Wars TV, giving the audience a weekly trip to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The plans were scuttled as soon as everyone realized that it was crazy expensive to do Star Wars weekly on a budget, but the plans survived, and were one particular element that intrigued Disney upon their purchase of LucasFilms. And now, they might be pilfering from that unused material for one of their standalone movies. SlashFilm did some digging, uncovering the Kickstarter for something called Army Of The Lost Horizon, a movie tied to the legacy of Indiana Jones. That project is being spearheaded by Stephen Scaia, who apparently was a writer on Star Wars Underworld (though he oddly cannot get Disney funding for a Disney-owned project). And Scaia claims that most of »

Mad Men Season Premiere Review: “Time Zones” (Season 7, Episode 1)

13 April 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Don Draper has flown to California and lies on a couch with his wife, Megan, sprawled next to him. Eyes dazed, he looks toward the television as Frank Capra’s 1937 film Lost Horizon begins. The on-screen script reads, “In these days of wars and rumors of wars – haven’t you ever dreamt of a place where there was peace and security, where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight?” Don becomes alert, more so when the page on the television flips to new text. “Of course you have,” it states. “So has every man since Time began.”

To quote a popular rock song of the period, time is not on Don Draper’s side. His descent into oblivion from Mad Men‘s opening credit sequence feels more like a final destination. At his job with Sterling Cooper, Don was at the centre of the clock, the boss waiting »

Season premiere review: 'Mad Men' - 'Time Zones'

13 April 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Mad Men" is back for the start of its seventh season — which is or isn't the final season depending on whether you value contractual language (which says it is) over scheduling (which will give us seven episodes this spring and seven more next year) — and I have a review of the premiere coming up just as soon as I'm seated next to a man in a hairpiece eating a banana... "Why are you making it so hard? Open the door and walk in." -Lou Avery We return to the world of "Mad Men" a scant two months after our last glimpse, late in January of 1969. It's by far the shortest time gap between seasons, but almost as much has changed in those two months than in the 11 months between the heist of Sterling Cooper and our first look at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. It seems only appropriate given the period. »

Program Notes Gone Wild

20 March 2014 11:36 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

A 9-film series of not-quite-classics (on 35mm), "Auteurs Gone Wild" runs at Anthology Film Archives from March 20-30, 2014; what follows are the director's cut of the program notes (with production stills of the auteurs themselves, mid-wild)—

***

If the Hollywood auteurs were the ghosts in the studio machine, what would they look like exorcised? Rather than author, the word "auteur" might have referred to a kind of rhetorician working within genre codes that, once decoded, would only reveal his own commentary on them. But what would happen if this auteur cleared his throat, managed a sip of water, and tried speaking in his own tongue? Typically, the critics who had authored the auteur as a placeholder and retroactive justification for their own generic interpretations would have to snub such attempts to break out of genre molds to go strange, personal places. For the irony is that these works, kind of laboratory »
