Tatiana Maslany trades her Canadian roots to become Boston Strong in StrongerTatiana Maslany trades her Canadian roots to become Boston Strong in StrongerIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine9/21/2017 10:42:00 Am

After portraying 11 different clones (and winning an Emmy for her efforts) in the recently wrapped sci-fi series "Orphan Black", Tatiana Maslany is slacking off by playing just a single character, Erin Hurley, in this month’s Stronger.

The film is based on the book by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter and stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Bauman, who was standing at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon waiting for girlfriend Hurley to complete the race when the blast from the bomb left by terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev exploded at his feet.

Bauman lost both legs — but was able to identify Tsarnaev from his hospital bed — and the movie recounts Bauman and Hurley’s relationship as he begins his arduous journey of recovery. »

7 August 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Any list of the greatest foreign directors currently working today has to include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. The directors first rose to prominence in the mid 1990s with efforts like “The Promise” and “Rosetta,” and they’ve continued to excel in the 21st century with titles such as “The Kid With A Bike” and “Two Days One Night,” which earned Marion Cotillard a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

The directors will be back in U.S. theaters with the release of “The Unknown Girl” on September 8, which is a long time coming considering the film first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. While you continue to wait for their new movie, the brothers have provided their definitive list of 79 movies from the 20th century that you must see.

How George A. Romero Changed the Course of American Independent Film

17 July 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Predictably, most of the memorials for the late great horror director George A. Romero focused on his influence on the zombie and wider horror genre.  Yes, he was important and influential in that area. But his legacy is much wider. More than any other filmmaker, Romero changed the course of independent film making in America.

Independent films have been around as long as movies existed. Indeed, in their infancy all early features from around 1912 were basically independent, before the Hollywood studio system rapidly evolved in the late teens.

Though the majors dominated moviemaking and distribution from their hub in Southern California, many independent filmmakers such as Edgar G. Ulmer, the idiosyncratic Edward Wood, African-American pioneer Oscar Micheaux and various ethnic cinemas flourished on the side. In 1955 Robert Altman was making industrial films in Kansas City when he was hired by a local businessman to make his first feature, the low-budget »

Elijah Wood produced Sundance Midnight selection.

Dark Sky Films continues its commitment to supporting the work of female directors, and Marianna Palka’s new film is a brave, uncompromising statement from one of the movement’s newest leading voices,” Mpi Media Group’s vice-president of digital and international sales Nicola Goelzhaeuser said.

Bitch is a totally unique take on a domestic breakdown – intimate, disturbing, tender and incredibly funny,” Wood said. “If »

Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema with Filmmaker Bryan Bertino

4 April 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Hello, readers! Welcome back for another installment of one our featured columns here at Daily Dead, Deadly Dialogue: A Conversation on Cinema, in which we catch up with notable folks—both in front of and behind the camera—from the horror and sci-fi genres to discuss the films that inspired them to become the artists they are today.

With the release of The Blackcoat’s Daughter from A24, we thought it was the perfect time to chat with filmmaker Bryan Bertino, who, in addition to directing The Strangers, Mockingbird, and The Monster, was a producer on The Blackcoat’s Daughter as well. Here’s what Bertino had to say when we discussed what inspired his decision to pursue a career in Hollywood.

Honestly, I always knew I wanted to be in the movies. When I was about 18 or 19, the only thing that I knew was that I had a passion for movies. »

The Ultimate Crossroad: The Trouble with "Silence"

28 March 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

She could never be a saint, but she thought she could be a martyr if they killed her quick.—Flannery O’Connor The mist uncovers Japanese soldiers as well as the grim sight of severed heads by the side of the hot springs where Catholic priests are being tortured. A priest kneels down in horror, almost catatonic, unable to bring himself to believe in the evilness of these men, the men of the Inquisitor. Why are these priests, who came to this “swamp of Japan” to spread the Word of the Lord, suffering so immensely on the hands of these soldiers?To the modern, secular audience, the theme of Silence (2016) is of great irony: the all-powerful Catholic Church, the institution that spread terror across Europe for 700 years with her bonfires and witch hunts and enforcing an almost maddening outlook at faith and personal behavior, comes to an unconquerable land where »

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s 10 Favorite Films

13 March 2017 2:22 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of the year’s most affecting, humanistic films, Hirokazu Kore-eda‘s After the Storm, will arrive in the U.S. this week (our rave review from Cannes), so for the occasion, we’re looking at the director’s favorite films. Submitted by the Japanese director for the latest Sight & Sound poll, it’s perhaps the most varied list we’ve seen thus far — at least next to Mia Hansen-Løve‘s favorites.

Although the filmmaker is often compared to Yasujiro Ozu (none of his films are mentioned below), Hirokazu Kore-eda told The Guardian, “I of course take it as a compliment. I try to say thank you. But I think that my work is more like Mikio Naruse — and Ken Loach.” One will find his favorites from both of those directors on the list, as well as Jacques Demy‘s most-praised film, along with lesser-seen works from Hou Hsiao-hsien, »

Glasgow Frightfest 2017: Simon Rumley Interview

21 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ahead of the UK premiere of his latest film Fashionista at Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow, Simon Rumley reveals why he’s a fan of drugs in film and his planned foray into London gangster land…

Fashionista finds you back in Austin after Red White and Blue. What excites you about Austin so much? Could Fashionista have been set anywhere else?

I had such a great experience on Red White & Blue for so many different reasons that it was only natural that, at some point, I’d return to Austin. With Tim League (exec producer), Paul Knauss (co-producer) and Karen Hallford (casting director) I’ve got a great bunch of friends who also happen to be great collaborators and they form the core of both films’ Austin based crew and most probably without them neither films would have happened. Beyond that, I love the unique style of Austin, the food, the music, »

Top 10 performances directed by Martin Scorsese

Top 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseTop 10 performances directed by Martin ScorseseShane McNeil1/4/2017 11:30:00 Am

On January 6th 2017, Martin Scorsese's passion project Silence finally hits the big screen.

Based on the Japanese novel by Shûsaku Endô, Silence tells the story of two Jesuit priests who face torture and persecution after traveling to Japan to find their mentor and spread the word of Catholicism. It's bound to be a heavy handed film, and with Scorsese directing, we wouldn't be wrong to expect another masterpiece from the legendary filmmaker.

Here he directs stars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson, the three of which look to be Oscar contenders for their performances. While none of them have been nominated by the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild, there's a good chance the very late in the year release of Silence (it plays just in time in New York and Los »
