Watch Audiences React to ‘The Exorcist’ in Vintage 1973 Footage

7 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Pretty much every genre of film is different today than it was decades ago. But the two genres that seem to suffer the most from feeling dated are horror and comedy. There are plenty of things that aren’t as scary or as funny as they were to audiences during what was then the present day. […]

Watch: Incredible Vintage Footage Of Audience Reactions To 'The Exorcist' In 1973

22 May 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While we can sit back decades later and see "The Exorcist" as the horror landmark that it is, it's easy to forget that in 1973 it was a controversial sensation. William Friedkin's movie got a mixed reception from critics, but soon became a must-see cinema experience, genuinely scaring moviegoers in a way that films hadn't before. For instance, you get a real understanding of the overwhelming power of Friedkin's film once you witness shellshocked viewers coming out of the movie that year, which you can do yourself, below.  Av Club has dug up some fantastic vintage footage from 1973 news broadcasts featuring interviews with people who had just seen the movie, theater owners (some of whom had smelling salts on hand for those who passed out), and interviews witih Friedkin and author William Peter Blatty. It's truly eye-opening stuff. Viewers recall the most hair-raising scenes, and some of them can't even »

Michael Kaplan on designing the costumes for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

21 May 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This December, costume designer Michael Kaplan is set to add b to an impressive CV that includes the likes of Blade Runner, Se7en, Fight Club, Star Trek and Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, and during an in depth interview with Vanity Fair, the BAFTA Award winner has spoken about his work on December’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

“I went up to George Lucas’s archives—huge building—and just spent a day going through sketches and looking just to get the tone of the movie, you know, in my guts and veins so that when I went to London I felt equipped and inspired, which I certainly did,” states Kaplan when asked how he went about updating the look of the Original Trilogy costumes. “The old stormtroopers uniforms would not be usable. Audiences of today have become so sophisticated that a lot of things you could get away with in the past, »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof talks Star Trek 3 plot and Idris Elba for villain role

19 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Trek 3 film.

Lindelof produced the first two films in the relaunched franchise, writing the second instalment, but working on Tomorrowland and his HBO TV show The Leftovers meant he had to step away from the third. In the interview, Lindelof talks about what he knows of Star Trek 3’s story so far:

“It’s really about the beginning of the five year mission. It’s establishing the crew after they’ve been out there and together for a while. But I don’t know anything about the plot.”

Which is…pretty much what everyone expected, seeing how Star Trek Into Darkness ends with »

Lawrence Kasdan teases Lando Calrissian for future Star Wars movies

19 May 2015 5:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lawrence Kasdan (or Larry Kasdan as he’s often called) has been a part of the Star Wars universe for many years now, having written the scripts for The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and co-authoring Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the writer promised some exciting things coming from J.J. Abrams’ latest entry into the Star Wars series.

“It’s turned out really great,” he said. “J.J. directed it so beautifully, and it’s so exhilarating.”

Kasdan also revealed that the runtime of the movie will not be like most modern blockbusters. “One of the things that we always refocus on from the get-go was that it not be one of these very long, bloated blockbusters,” he says. “A lot of very entertaining movies lately are too long. In the last 20 minutes, you think, ‘why isn’t this over?’ We »

Exclusive – Damon Lindelof: Working on Star Wars would be “a dream come true”

19 May 2015 4:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To promote the release of his new movie Tomorrowland, writer Damon Lindelof (the man responsible for Lost, Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus) sat down with Flickering Myth’s Oli Davis, where they proceeded to talk about his new movie, but also the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Trek 3 movies. Because they’re both pretty geeky (and one of them is best buds with Star Wars director J.J. Abrams).

While getting excited about the impending return of Luke, Leia and Han, Lindelof spoke about whether he would ever take on a Star Wars movie down the line:

“Obviously Star Wars really made me want to be a filmmaker, so the possibility that I could work on one of those films in the future would be truly a dream come true.”

Simon Pegg reveals that Daniel Craig is playing a Stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

15 May 2015 1:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Way back in September it was reported that 007 Daniel Craig had shot a secret cameo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it looks like Simon Pegg has let slip the Bond star’s role while deflecting questions about his own rumoured appearance in the hotly-anticipated Disney sequel.

During the London premiere of his new film Man Up, Pegg was asked about reports that he’ll feature in a minor role in The Force Awakens, replying that “I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper.” Pegg then attempted to retract his comments, adding “I shouldn’t have said that.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Breakdown

15 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Who speaks the voiceover? Who, exactly, are all these new Star Wars people? Is Darth Vader still alive?

All that, and more, is answered in Flickering Myth’s breakdown of the second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. It’s magnifcent! It’s nostalgic! It’s got Han Solo and his pet wookie! And the movie doesn’t look that bad, either…

“Chewie, we’re home.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art reportedly reveals Lupita Nyong’o’s Maz Kanata

9 May 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we got a new batch of promotional images for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which included a behind-the-scenes shot of Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) performing motion capture for her CG character, who was revealed as a “pirate” called Maz Kanata. Well, thanks to Indie Revolver, we’ve now got some concept art which claims to give us our first look at the character…

As it happens, we did catch a glimpse of Maz Kanata handing the lightsaber over to Leia in the second trailer, although that creature had orange skin and a shorter neck, so if this is genuine it would appear it’s not quite the final design.

J.J. Abrams has toned down the Original Trilogy references in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

8 May 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan took over writing duties from Michael Arndt on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was said that one of the reasons for the rewrite was that Abrams wanted to shift some of the focus back to the characters of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia, as opposed to the supporting role they played in Arndt’s script.

Well, it seems this may have led to an excess of Original Trilogy references, with Abrams revealing to Vanity Fair that they ultimately decided to cut back on the fan service, as well as avoiding too much in the way of set up for the subsequent sequels and spin-off projects:

“We’ve obviously had a lot of time [during the development process] to talk about what’s happened outside of the borders of the story that you’re seeing. So there are, of course, references to things, and some »
