Why You Shouldn’t Be Worried About Harry Styles Appearing In Dunkirk

29 May 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks forward to the former boy band star appearing in Christopher Nolan’s next film…

This week the first set photos of Christopher Nolan’s forthcoming war film Dunkirk emerged, as well as the news that Tom Hardy had signed up to appear in the film. He joins a cast that includes Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles.

There was some dissent when Styles – better known as a member of One Direction than an actor – was announced as part of the cast. It’s an unusual move, but it’s exactly the sort of thing that Christopher Nolan does.

While Nolan obviously has a regular troupe of actors he uses in different films – Murphy, Hardy, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale have all appeared in his films more than once – he also makes some unexpected casting choices.

Nolan has a habit of resurrecting the »

Eureka

20 May 2016 7:21 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Nicolas Roeg's bizarre blend of high drama, searing sex and over-the-top brutality waited a year, only to be given a tiny American release. It then dropped out of sight. We're now in a better position to appreciate the show's great actors - especially Theresa Russell, the boldest and bravest actress of the 1980s. Eureka Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition Small>1983 / Color / 1:85 widescreen / 130 min. / Ship Date May 10, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Gene Hackman, Theresa Russell, Rutger Hauer, Jane Lapotaire, Mickey Rourke, Ed Lauter, Joe Pesci, Helena Kallianiotes, Corin Redgrave, Joe Spinell, Frank Pesce, Timothy Scott.

Cannes to host Prince tribute

22 April 2016 8:07 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Cannes Film Festival is to host a tribute to the iconic singer who died yesterday.

Cannes Film Festival (May 11-22) has confirmed to ScreenDaily that it will host a tribute to music icon Prince, who died yesterday aged 57.

A festival spokesperson told Screen that a tribute to Prince would be only “logical” given his standing and influence on film but could not confirm the nature of the tribute:

“There will be a tribute to Prince but [there is] no more information right now,” the spokesperson told Screen.

The pioneering Us musician won an Oscar for his music for Purple Rain in 1984 and leaves behind a memorable movie legacy.

He provided soundtracks to a number of productions including the 1989 Tim Burton directed Batman and Spike Lee’s Girl 6, which played in Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 1996.

His 1986 directorial debut Under The Cherry Moon shot in and around Nice along the French Riviera.

David Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth This Weekend at Webster University

15 February 2016 3:45 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Well I’m not a scientist. But I know all things begin and end in eternity!”

 The Man Who Fell To Earth  screens at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium (470 E. Lockwood Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63119) Friday through Sunday (February 19-21). Showtime is 7:30pm.

When The Man Who Fell To Earth was set to be released theatrically in the United States in 1976, studio execs were puzzled by the daring film and director Nicholas Roeg’s curious storytelling style. Twenty minutes of the film’s more unconventional scenes were excised, making an already challenging film even more so. Ambitious, imaginative, pretentious, and baffling in equal measure The Man Who Fell To Earth has had a huge cult following ever since its initial release. It left a strong emotional impact on me as a teen even as I puzzled over its odd narrative. It originally received mixed reviews and confused plenty »

Berlinale: Tilda Swinton pays tribute to David Bowie

13 February 2016 2:35 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tilda Swinton told personal stories of her teenage Bowie obsessions while introducing The Man To Fell To Earth at a Berlinale Special screening on Friday night.

Tilda Swinton was on stage last night at Berlin’s Friedrichstadt-Palast to pay tribute to David Bowie.

She said she took the stage “on behalf of all of us fanboys” and thanked Berlinale director Dieter Kosslick for planning this tribute to Bowie, who died on January 10. “Dieter has done what we’ve wanted someone to do for a month, which is to give an opportunity for us all to be together and sit in the dark and look at the leader of our tribe.” Swinton appeared in Bowie’s The Stars (Are Out Tonight) video in 2013.

She added, “It’s only the Berlinale that would be doing this, it’s a cultural moment. “

The Berlinale hosted a special screening of Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell To Earth, which festival »

This week’s new film events

12 February 2016 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Glasgow Film Festival | Secret Cinema

Coming so early in the calendar, this festival has its pick of the exciting new titles we’ll spend the rest of the year waiting for. Films such as Hail, Caesar!, the Coen brothers’ star-packed Hollywood homage, which opens the event. Not to mention new Disney animation Zootropolis, Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead, and the talked-about Green Room, featuring Patrick Stewart as a neo-Nazi. On the foreign-language side, there’s Oscar-nominated Turkish teen drama Mustang, Cannes-winner Dheepan and Norwegian disaster epic The Wave. And much more besides: 174 films in total, including a mini FrightFest, Bowie material, and guests from Richard Gere to Peter Greenaway. Plus some ingenious pop-up events: a Romeo + Juliet-style masked ball, The Man Who Fell To Earth at the Planetarium, and a Con Air event where you’re put in an orange jumpsuit and transported to a secret location. »

The Best of Movie Poster of the Day: Part 13

12 February 2016 12:19 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Us one sheet for Knight Of Cups (Terrence Malick, USA, 2015); designer: P+A.Leaps and bounds ahead of the competition, the beautiful new poster for Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups was by far the most popular poster (tallied in likes and reblogs) that I have posted on my daily poster Tumblr since last October. Unveiled nearly a whole year after the first poster for the film premiered at last year’s Berlin Film Festival (that which made my top ten posters of 2015), the new poster retains the arcane and antique feel of that design—not to mention the palm trees—while making it only moderately more commercial with its image of star Christian Bale (albeit upside down and barely recognizable) haloed by a giant harvest moon.Sadly, much of the past month or two has been spent commemorating those we lost: Jacques Rivette, Haskell Weller, Ettore Scola, artist »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Berlin Film Festival to Pay Tribute to David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Ettore Scola

2 February 2016 4:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Berlin Film Festival will pay tribute to David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Italian director Ettore Scola by presenting special screenings in their honor.

To commemorate Bowie, the festival will show Nicolas Roeg’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth” at Friedrichstadt-Palast on Feb. 12.

David Bowie was a tremendous musician, an avant-garde artist who expressed his creativity in many disciplines,” festival director Dieter Kosslick said.

Bowie’s ties to Berlin go back to the time he spent in the city from 1976 to 1978. At the festival, he appeared in the documentaries “Lou Reed: Rock and Roll Heart,” “Scott Walker — 30 Century Man” and “Let’s Dance: Bowie Down Under,” as well as the fiction films “The Man Who Fell to Earth” and “Mr Rice’s Secret.”

To commemorate Rickman, the Berlinale will show Ang Lee’s “Sense and Sensibility,” winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale in 1996. The screening »

David Bowie, and his film acting roles

The late David Bowie brought something down to earth (literally, in one case) to his film acting roles. We look at his film acting roles.

Editor's note: we don't like to run material to generate clicks off the death of someone. We did, however, want to talk about the wonderful film and TV work that the late, great David Bowie has left behind. Hence, we've thus held this piece back to now. If it still feels too soon, then do give it a miss.

David Bowie's state of existence at the time of performing influenced his musical ‘personas’ enormously. Though such characters as Diamond Dogs’ Halloween Jack or Ashes To Ashes’ Pierrot seem superficially too outré and theatrical to be based in anything real, retrospectively we can see a private life exposed: Bowie’s exposure to fame and feelings of being an outsider informed the Ziggy »
