18 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With so many films released on the run up to Halloween it’s been hard to keep up with reviews, so we’re going to play catch-up with another review round-up looking at some recent releases in brief. This time round we have reviews of Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari, Saints & Soldiers: The Void, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Pigman Murders.

Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari

Stars: Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Friedrich Feher, Lil Dagover, Hans Heinrich von Twardowski, Rudolf Lettinger | Directed by Robert Weine

Synopsis: At a local carnival in a small German town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding…

Watch: Chris Hemsworth in First ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ Trailer

18 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“We were headed for the edge of sanity, like we were apparitions, phantoms,” Brendan Gleeson narrates over haunting vfx in the first trailer for Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea.” “Trust gave way to doubt. Hope to superstition.”

Chris Hemsworth battles a bull sperm whale — and personal demons — in the movie based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book, “In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex,” about the real-life story that inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”

Hemsworth stars as the first mate of the Essex, a ship struck by a gigantic whale in 1819, leaving its crew shipwrecked and stranded for 90 days, thousands of miles from home. After the attack, the sailors head to South America and are forced to resort to cannibalism to survive.

The drama, which also stars Benjamin Walker, Tom Holland (who plays a younger version of Gleeson’s character) and Cillian Murphy, »

16 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released the first poster and trailer for Ron Howard’s latest, In the Heart of the Sea, which is based upon the true story that inspired Moby Dick and sees Howard’s Rush star Chris Hemsworth leading a cast that includes Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Tom Holland (The Impossible), Cillian Murphy (Inception), Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow) and Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones). Check them out…

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. »

First trailer for Ron Howard's Heart Of The Sea

16 October 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Chris Hemsworth goes from God of Thunder to Prince of Whales in Ron Howard's salty drama Heart Of The Sea. Here's the first trailer...

The last time Chris Hemsworth and director Ron Howard collaborated on a movie, the result was the engrossing Formula One racing biopic Rush. Heart Of The Sea is a very different kind of based-on-true-events film. It's about a whaleship called the Essex, and what happened to its crew when it sank in 1820.

One of the occupants aboard the Essex was Herman Melville, who later used the experience as inspiration for his classic novel, Moby Dick. Here, Melville's played by Ben Whishaw - but one of the familiar faces among the cast, which also includes Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland and Brendan Gleeson as various second mates, sailors and cabin boys.

It's certainly a handsome-looking film, if the trailer's to go by, and one shot in particular »

First Trailer & Poster for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea Released

16 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In the Heart of the Sea (based on a book of the same name) tells the true story of a shipping voyage that would go on to inspire the classical tale of Moby Dick, and today brings the first trailer and poster for Ron Howard's upcoming adaptation.  Come inside to check them out!

Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth are back together, this time in a period piece out on the high seas.  I wasn't sure what to think about this story when I first hear about it, but having seen this trailer, I'm definitely excited to know more.  While the human drama elements will most surely be at the forefront, it's pretty obvious that at it's core, In the Heart of the Sea is a disaster flick.  I love these kinds of films and Ron Howard does a great job with them (look at Apollo 13), by combining engaging »

Watch: Chris Hemsworth Battles The Original Moby Dick In Trailer For Ron Howard’s ‘In The Heart Of The Sea’

16 October 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So maybe Chris Hemsworth is slightly outshined at the box-office by his Marvel pals Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans of late. That’s okay, he’s getting a lot of work and will be seen onscreen four times next year. Yep, in 2015, we’ll see Hemsworth leading a Michael Mann movie (“Blackhat”), another Marvel movie (“Avengers: Age Of Ultron”), and a reboot (the “Vacation” series). But Hemsworth will also reteam once again with his “Rush” director Ron Howard for “In The Heart Of The Sea.” The film concerns a whaling ship that was preyed upon by a sperm whale in 1820 —the same whale that inspired Herman Melville’s tale of “Moby Dick.” "He's kind of like Clint Eastwood," visual effects supervisor Jody Johnson told Empire earlier this year about the whale in the movie (no joke). "He's a high plains drifter. He comes and helps out his own kind, »

Chris Hemsworth Battles a White Whale in First In The Heart Of The Sea Images from Ron Howard’s Drama

15 October 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first In the Heart of the Sea images from director Ron Howard’s upcoming drama.  Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s excellent book of the same name, the film tells the story of the whaling ship Essex, which in 1819 was rammed by an angry whale in the South Pacific.  The surviving crew drifted for 90 days in three tiny whaleboats and encountered disease, hunger, and eventually cannibalism.  It’s a heartwrenching true story, and it served as the basis for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  Howard’s fantastic cast is led by Chris Hemsworth as the ship’s first mate, Tom Holland as a young cabin boy who eventually tells his tale to Melville once he’s an adult, and Benjamin Walker as Captain George Pollard Jr.  All of the actors lost a significant amount of weight for the film.  Philbrick’s book is positively enthralling, and after Howard’s swell Rush, »

New Images From Chris Hemsworth's In The Heart Of The Sea

15 October 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You may already have seen one image from Ron Howard’s seagoing drama In The Heart Of The Sea, which featured as part of the preview in the October issue of Empire. Now some new pictures from the film are online via USA Today. In The Heart Of The Sea follows the traumatic real-life struggle endured by the men of Nantucket whaling ship the Essex, which was destroyed by an angry sperm whale in 1820.Stranded in a lifeboat thousands of miles from home, 20 of the surviving crew (their number included the captain and first officer) at first planned to make for an isolated tropical island, but the idea was rejected because of rumours of flesh-eating savages. The resulting delay in their rescue led to them becoming cannibals to survive. Irony!It’s the harrowing real-life story that inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick. "It's wild," Howard tells the paper. »

Chris Hemsworth Can Do Anything In New Images From Black Hat And Heart Of The Sea

8 September 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Not content with being a race-car driver, an action-fantasy hero, and a god, Chris Hemsworth continues to flex his acting muscles (and a few other muscles too) in several films that will have their premiere at the start of next year. With the appearance of several new images of Hemsworth in his latest roles, we can once again say, without a doubt, that this is one attractive man.

Going beyond the mundanities of our leading man’s appearance, first up is Michael Mann’s Black Hat. This film represents the first piece of work from the director since Public Enemies in 2009. Hemsworth is a “blackhat hacker” who has served part of his prison sentence and is offered a chance at freedom by helping to hunt down a cybercrime network, working with Chinese and American partners as they go globe-trotting on the trail of the villains. The cast of Black Hat also includes Viola Davis, »

Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies

8 August 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It can be such a beautiful happening when the natural forces of humanity and the wild kingdom can get together and establish a sense of harmony in motion pictures. Also, it can be a compelling yet regrettable conflict as well when man and beast decide to collide in the interest of big screen entertainment. Whatever the case may be certainly does not matter because the concept of  beasts of all species (rather it be of the four-legged or two-legged variety) collectively clashing or cooperating sends a special message about triumph, tragedy and just plain tenderness.

In Beast of Burden: Top 10 Human-Animal Combinations in the Movies we will look at some of the best selections where man and animal co-exist whether it be in calmness or chaos. There is no doubt that one can come up with numerous top ten lists detailing their ideal man-animal themes in cinema. The struggle for »
