The Great War Unfolds In Stunning Launch Trailer For Battlefield 1

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As of Friday, October 21, Battlefield 1 is officially out in the wild for all platforms, introducing players to a visceral account of The Great War. To celebrate the occasion, EA and developer Dice have lifted the lid on the shooter’s spectacular launch trailer, and you can get a taste of that explosive action up above.

Much like the first reveal trailer, you’ll hear the blaring chords of “Seven Nation Army” by The White Stripes in the background – albeit a remixed version – and though many gameplay clips often integrate music that doesn’t necessarily mesh with the on-screen visuals, this combination works remarkably well.

As the core single-player campaign of Battlefield 1 is divided into five vignettes known as War Stories, the launch trailer is also a neat overview of the plot’s impressive scope, ranging from the muddy trenches and »

Mipcom: “Television is where it’s at,” says Kiefer Sutherland

18 October 2016 3:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Canadian actor talks Designated Survivor, rise of TV and how he nearly turned down 24

Television is the “most exciting medium” for actors in an era when Us studios have cut the number of films they make to focus on fewer big budget franchises, actor Kiefer Sutherland told delegates in Mipcom keynote on Monday.

Sutherland, who spent 20 years on the big screen in films such as Stand By Me and cult classic The Lost Boys in the 1980s to Flatliners and A Few Good Men in the 1990s, segued over to television in 2001 in the role of Jack Bauer in 24.

When asked why so many cinema actors were migrating to TV, he replied television was simply the “most exciting medium” in terms of the stories it was telling.

“When I started working, there were five studios and all five studios were making 50 to 60 movies a year. Now there are barely three studios and they’re making 15 movies a year »

Mipcom: Kiefer Sutherland on the Lessons of ’24′

17 October 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cannes, France — The ghost of Jack Bauer haunted the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Auditorium in Cannes on Monday evening as Kiefer Sutherland talked in a masterclass Q & A about his new fall series, “Designated Survivor.”

“24” was a constant reference for Sutherland and for the audience, which created him with whoops of applause. But the crowd fell silent when Sutherland reflected on the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

“This has been the most bizarre and unfortunate political election cycle that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, and I still remember Watergate. It is so negative, so polarizing and polarized,” Sutherland said.

In contrast, though it is make-believe, “Designated Survivor” has a point of view “from left, center and right,” Sutherland said, “discussed factually, correctly, calmly, and intelligently” – one of the reasons he agreed to do the show.

Bowing solidly on ABC on Sept. 21, then notching up TV’s best-ever Live+7 ratings gain, “Designated Survivor »

Battlefield 1 Review

17 October 2016 2:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Playing video games probably tops the list of my favorite hobbies, and it’s not hard to see why. There’s no better time to be a fan of video games than right now; console and PC hardware is cheaper then ever, portable gaming has seen a huge boost in popularity thanks to the advent of smartphones, and exciting new tech like Vr and 4K displays allow us to interact with the medium in exciting new ways.

Still, as much fun as I have playing video games, I also like to talk about them, usually in the company of a few good friends and a couple of beers (though I’ll take long nights on gaming forums if need be). A staple of most lengthy discussions usually involves a conversation of a favorite game in a long-running series, and with some franchises having lifespans of over three decades, there’s »

Pumping It Up: Paul Verhoeven Discusses "Elle"

14 October 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Is Paul Verhoeven cinema’s most successful mimic? When he went to Hollywood for 1987’s RoboCop, the Dutch director integrated himself so well in his host culture that 1995’s showbiz melodrama Showgirls is still taken by many as foolhardy trash rather than a corrosive critique so intimate with its subject as to appear nearly—or in fact be—indistinguishable. After a return to his home country to make Black Book, one of the 2000s best thrillers and most devilishly twisted recreations of World War 2, and an experiment with a crowd-sourced screenplay in the unusual 2012 short feature Tricked, Verhoeven has changed host bodies yet again, this time to French cinema. Therefore, of course, he mimics the most perfect of French films: a thriller focused on sexual politics and starring Isabelle Huppert.The premise of Elle, adapted from from Philippe Djian's book Oh..., has a horrible come-on: from the director of Basic Instinct, »

Do We Need More Diversity In Films?

9 October 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway questions whether casting in movies need to be more diverse…

Tim Burton has been defending Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and its apparent lack of diversity. Personally, I can’t believe people are complaining about a lack of diversity in a Tim Burton film; he’s been making the same movie for more than 25 years (sometimes he does it well, and sometimes he does it badly). The problem is, Miss Peregrine… is a film set in rural Wales during the 1940s, and that wasn’t exactly a diverse place.

This follows a recent piece (subsequently removed) in NY Magazine calling David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia sexist because it didn’t feature a single woman in a speaking role. Initially that’s a shocking fact, but the more you look at it, and the more you think about it, the more it’d be »

‘London Town’ Exclusive Clip: Jonathan Rhys Meyers Stars As The Clash’s Joe Strummer In Coming-of-Age Tale

4 October 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Clash’s frontman Joe Strummer had a seismic impact on music as well as the attitudes of impressionable youth. His rebellious attitude and leftist politics inspired a generation to take a stand for what they believed in. Derrick Borte’s new film “London Town” follows a young teenager’s coming-of-age story at the beginning of the punk rock era who happens to befriend Joe Strummer at a crucial point in his life.

As unemployment hits the working class suburbs of London very hard in 1979, 14-year-old Shay (Daniel Huttlestone) is forced to take care of his younger sister while his father (Dougray Scott) works two jobs, but Shay is caught up in the punk scene after being exposed to The Clash from his estranged mother (Natascha McElhone) and meeting 15-year-old scenester Vivian (Nell Williams).

Battlefield 1 Campaign Teaser Invades The Ottoman Homeland

3 October 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Capping off its series of teasers for the Battlefield 1 single-player campaign – a campaign that will be divided into five different “War Stories” with locations ranging from Britain, the Ottoman Empire, France and the icy peaks of the Alps – Dice has pumped out a new, 30-second snippet designed to showcase the chapter titled “The Runner.”

Unlike “Friends in High Places” and the gruelling “Through Mud and Blood,” this vignette in particular finds players staging a naval assault on the Ottoman homeland and is, much like everything else coming out of Battlefield 1, an assault on the senses in the best possible way.

Battlefield 1’s Campaign Will Follow An Anthology Format, More Story Details Revealed

28 September 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following yesterday’s action-packed reveal trailer (above) for Battlefield 1‘s campaign, Dice has provided a whole lot more information in regards to how the shooter’s narrative is structured, as well as details for five of its missions.

As you may have suspected after witnessing how the trailer flitted between several different conflicts, all introducing their own characters, Dice has opted to go with an anthology format to convey Battlefield 1‘s narrative, with each of its stages following different engagements of the Great War.

Although it’s currently unclear how many levels will be available on launch day, the EA/Origin Access trial includes a stage not mentioned here, so there’s at least six that we know of currently.

Britain, the Ottoman Empire, France and the Alps are just some of the locations mentioned here, with each promising a unique style of gameplay to accompany it.

Lawrence Of Arabia Screens September 21st at The Tivoli – ‘Classics in the Loop’

18 September 2016 7:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“No Arab loves the desert. We love water and green trees. There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing.”

Lawrence Of Arabia screens Wednesday September 21st at The Tivoli Theater (6350 Delmar in ‘The Loop’) as part of their new ‘Classics in the Loop’ film series. The movie starts at 7pm and admission is $7. It will be on The Tivoli’s big screen.

“Greatest biopic ever”…”Genius in 70mm”…”A Miracle of a Movie”…

All these statements were said somewhere about director David Lean’s Lawrence Of Arabia and it’s understandable. It was some kind of madness to make a movie like this in 1962. Working in the middle of desert for such a long time, those extraordinary ways of cinematographer Freddie Young, and working with that huge number of actors (and camels).

But it all worked. Lawrence Of Arabia is more than a glorious, expensive, old biopic movie. »

Jackie Chan to Be Awarded an Honorary Oscar

2 September 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After decades of death-defying stunts, broken bones and a ton of classic movies, martial arts legend Jackie Chan is finally getting an Oscar. Chan, along with several others, will be presented with an honorary Oscar at the Academy's 8th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 12. After more than 50 years in the business, Chan has very well earned this honor.

The Academy announced on Thursday that the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had voted to bestow the honor to Chan, who's first acting credit dates all the way back to 1962. The actor got his first major break in the action/comedy Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in 1978, and the martial arts world has never quite been the same since. Here's what Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs had to say about it in a statement.

Wes Craven's version of Lawrence of Arabia? Ok, maybe not, but this is one of the best latter day uses of the metaphoric desert setting so familiar from 50s sci fi movies. The fan base it engendered resulted in a sequel and a 2006 remake which itself spawned a sequel. Originally rated X but cut to secure an R, there are various versions of the original in circulation. The Anchor Bay dvd release is the most complete. »

Honorary Oscars to Jackie Chan, Frederick Wiseman, Lynn Stalmaster, and Anne V Coates

1 September 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Board of Governors from AMPAS have finally announced their selections for this year's Honorary Oscars. This year they're not giving out the Thalberg (for Producing) or the Hersholt (for Huminatarian efforts) but just the regular ol' Honorary Oscars. If such a thing can be deemed "regular" since they're so hard to come by. Consider that James Ivory still doesn't have one despite being a masterful oft imitated but never duplicated director behind three major Best Picture contenders (and many other beautiful films) and never having won an an Oscar and being 88 years old. Nathaniel wept. Oscar remains remarkably stingy with the gays but at least they've noticed the need for diversity in other ways.

Congratulations to this year's esteemed recipients!
