Voyage of discovery by Rebecca Naughten

17 May 2015 2:39 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Vikingland Director Xurxo Chirro's Vikingland is a notable part of a trend for documentary fiction in the recent cinema originating from Galicia (north west Spain). The film uses found-footage of a specific case of Galician emigration in the early 1990s and arranges it around the structure of Moby Dick - it is screening in Edinburgh as part of the 'Focus on Galicia' strand at the 2nd edition of Iberodocs. We spoke to Chirro about how the film came to be, the influence of Herman Melville on the project, and what the New Galician Cinema consists of.

How did you find the footage in the first place? And what was the process whereby you decided that there was enough material for a film?

Xc: I found the material under the TV in my house when I was changing the VHS machine for a DVD player. I started to clean and there. »

Creature Feature: Top Ten Animals Gone Bad in the Movies

23 February 2015 10:07 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The human condition. It is a tricky and complicated concept for us mortals to grasp in terms of our ugly, unpredictable behaviors. However, when one applies a revealing spotlight on the animal kingdom and takes a look at their on-screen aggression against humans it becomes a whole new ballgame. Occasionally, the source of frustration embedded in these wayward creatures is often times triggered by the psychological prompting of the bad seed humans responsible for their behavioral tirade against nature and man.

In Creature Feature: Top Ten Animals Gone Bad in the Movies we will look at the bombastic beasts gone ballistic in cinematic society. Maybe you have your own selections of haywire critters out to cause random havoc? If so then they probably would suffice within the theme of this movie column when detailing the animals that run amok on land, by sea or in the air.

Ron Howard Talks "Heart of the Sea" Delay

16 January 2015 5:46 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest news stories of this week was the nine-month delay of Ron Howard's "In the Heart of the Sea," the true story tale about a whaling crew that inspired Herman Melville’s "Moby Dick".

Originally slated for release in March, the movie was pushed back and is now scheduled to hit in the more lucrative and awards-ripe December 11th. It's a significant delay, and Howard has since explained to THR that the reasoning comes down to marketing data:

"They analyzed the way people are responding to our movie now which is very favorable now that it’s finished, the way people responded to the marketing materials, and they also looked out how the market expanded this last Christmas increasing a wide array of movies.

There was a larger audience. I wanted as many people to see this movie on the big screen as possible and I »

Ron Howard Delayed In The Heart Of The Sea For This Reason

16 January 2015 12:41 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The story that inspired Herman Melville.s Moby Dick was scheduled to hit the big screens in just a few months, on March 13, 2015. The film, entitled In the Heart of the Sea starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Tom Holland looks to be a breathtaking adventure filled with sea, survival, and a massive whale. But, director of the film, Ron Howard decided to push back the release even though the film is ready to go in hopes that a winter date will inspire more people to go to the theaters and see the film. Ron Howard, who has brought us an array of stunning films from Cinderella Man to How the Grinch Stole Christmas to A Beautiful Mind has directed and produced many critically-acclaimed films, so why he wants to change the date of the release is a bit confusing. He told The Hollywood Reporter that the pushback is due »

Ron Howard’s 'In the Heart of the Sea' Gets Delayed

15 January 2015 8:10 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ron Howard’s film In the Heart of the Sea has been delayed from March until December. The film, which stars Chris Hemsworth, was originally going to open on March 13. Warner Bros. Pictures has moved the Liam Neeson thriller Run All Night to that date from its original April 17 date. This move was probably made so the film will be competitive in the next awards season.

In the Heart of the Sea tells the story of the whaling ship, the Essex, which was attacked by a sperm whale in 1820, leaving its crew stranded at sea for 90 days.

Other cast members include Ben Wishaw as the famous writer Herman Melville (who wrote Moby Dick), Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Tom Holland, Frank Dillane and San Keeley. Stay tuned for additional details.

In the Heart of the Sea is set for release on December 11, 2015.

Top Ten Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015

12 January 2015 9:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I had a hell of a time trying to figure out how to tackle a list of my most anticipated movies of 2015. I'm not going to take the time to count the number of sequels, remakes, spin-offs, reboots, parts two of two or re-imaginings that are hitting theaters this year because, quite frankly, it doesn't matter any more. Trying to figure out where a film like Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens fit into a list of most anticipated films that weren't anything like it was impossible. Even then, how much am I "anticipating" the new Star Wars film versus how curious am I to simply see how it will turn out now that it's out of the hands of George Lucas and into the hands of J.J. Abrams, whose last Star Trek film was a complete messc Therefore, I decided on two distinctions in film, the blockbusters and then everything else. »
