Review: Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut

6 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Anyone with an interest in watching Clive Barker’s director’s cut of Nightbreed should most likely be familiar enough with the troubled production history and the Cabal cut that was making the festival rounds a couple of years ago. What makes this the definitive version of Barker’s ambitious dark fantasy is how this manages to expand the grand mythology taken from his novel Cabal, while adding clarity to Lori (Anne Bobby) and Boone’s (Craig Sheffer) relationship as the center of the story. Most importantly, the 40 minutes of new material was added in a way that actually helps the pacing and only running 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version keeps this from being a bloated experience.

Added footage of Boone and Lori together before he travels to the exotic home of the monsters, helps give their relationship a sense of purpose and Lori’s nightclub performance adds more depth to her character. »

Gareth Edwards Nabs Foxcatcher Cinematographer For His Star Wars Spinoff

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

Much of the media cycle may be devoted to rumors and speculation surrounding J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, but that’s not the only trip moviegoers will be taking to the beloved galaxy far, far away in the next few years. In fact, we’ll be getting one Star Wars movie a year after 2015, and the first film out the gate after Abrams’ franchise revamp is Gareth Edwards’ mysterious spinoff, which is slated for 2016.

Edwards has already brought The Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta on board to help pen the script, and has now found another crucial crew member to help him out: Foxcatcher and Zero Dark Thirty cinematographer Greig Fraser.

Fraser announced the news himself today while speaking with HitFix about his stellar resume and extremely busy schedule. As would be expected, he’s extremely excited about working on a Star Wars movie, but was unfortunately pretty »

40 Great Horror Films for the Halloween Season Part 4: 10-1

23 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Movies 10-1

10. Videodrome (1983) directed by David Cronenberg

In David Cronenberg’s world, sex hurts so good; it’s innately disgusting and primeval but at the same time beautiful and becoming. (Kind of like sex in the real world, when you think about it.) Bodies degenerate and mental states corrode under the influence of lust, and yet something new is engendered by the collision of bodies, bodily fluids, the ripping of flesh and the mangling of organs. Through the carrion of ugly comes the attractive flesh, the new flesh. Videodrome, as Jonathan Lethem once quipped, remains Cronenberg’s most penetrative film; he creates a world at once rooted in modernity circa 1983–a world afraid of the advent of television usurping our humanity, over-stimulated times ushering in the end times–and existing in a timeless, placeless vacuum. It’s vast and claustrophobic, prescient and paranoid, of the same lineage as early James Cameron »

George Lucas on the meaning and mythology of ‘Star Wars’

24 October 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) If you’ve been scratching your head for the past four decades trying to figure out what "Star Wars" is really all about, George Lucas sat down with Charlie Rose and opened up about that very subject. The creator of the 1977 game-changer and ridiculously influential cultural touchstone reveals that the real origin of "Star Wars" can be traced back to a long, long time ago — specifically to the days when myths and stories were spread orally throughout expanding cultures from one generation to the next. Lucas explains that these stories had the rules for the fledgling society encoded within them, which made it easy — and entertaining — to instill the values necessary for societal stability into the next generations. Lucas says he wanted to make a movie to test whether those same techniques could work on a modern audience. “It’s about good and evil, but heroes — what makes a hero, »

With Star Wars: Episode VII deep into production, Disney and LucasFilm are also prepping their Star Wars spin-off movies, the first of which will hit theaters sometime in 2016, under the direction of Gareth Edwards (Godzilla).

"And then I'm doing a f---ing Star Wars movie, which is like - I don't know about you but Star Wars is like my first film love, do you know what I mean? Gareth is doing a standalone film. Of course I do know some specifics, but it's obviously something I've signed my kidneys away for."

'Foxcatcher' Director of Photography to Lens First 'Star Wars' Spin-Off

24 October 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Normally we don't go out of our way to report who the director of photography (also known as the cinematographer) will be on a film unless we're big fans, but it's not that busy of a news day, and it's been awhile since we've had any real Star Wars related updates. While we don't know what the first Star Wars spin-off film coming in December of 2016 will focus on, we do know that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) is directing the film. Now we also know who will be behind the camera with him as HitFix has learned that Greig Fraser, who has lensed Foxcatcher and Zero Dark Thirty, will act as cinematographer for the flick. In an interview with Fraser, the director of photography just let the news drop casually: "And then I’m doing a fucking 'Star Wars' movie, which is like – I don’t know about »

Ewan McGregor has some unkind words for 'Star Wars' 'fans'

24 October 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ewan McGregor had no small task in taking over for Alec Guinness when he was cast as a younger Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menance. Regardless of his work in the film, the return of the franchise was met by rather tough criticism that continues long after the movie premiered. Well, McGregor has a response to those "fans"—though he calls them by another name. In an interview with Details, McGregor opened up about his limited interaction with Star Wars fans. The actor claims, in fact, that he doesn't have any experience with actual fans of the franchise, »

We know that the first Star Wars movie to follow J.J. Abrams' "Episode VII" will be a standalone film directed by Gareth Edwards for a 2016 release, but beyond that we haven't had any new details for quite a while. Well now we at least know who'll be manning the camera, as cinematographer Greig Fraser revealed that he's on board during an interview with Hitfix. “I’m doing a fucking Star Wars movie, which is like – I don’t know about you but Star Wars is like my first film love, do you know what I mean?… Gareth is doing a standalone film. Of course I do know some specifics, but it’s obviously something I’ve signed my kidneys away for.” This is great news as Fraser has an impressive body of work, having lensed the likes of not only Foxcatcher, Zero Dark Thirty, Killing Them Softly and Let Me In, »

'Foxcatcher' & 'Zero Dark Thirty' Cinematographer Greig Fraser To Lens Gareth Edwards' 'Star Wars' Spinoff

24 October 2014 1:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2012, we placed Greig Fraser in our On The Rise: Cinematographers feature, and now, two years later, the man is behind the camera of two of fall's biggest films, "Foxcatcher" and "The Gambler." It's nice to see that the industry has taken notice in the tremendous work he's been doing, and now he's going blockbuster. In an interview with In Contention, Fraser reveals he'll be the Dp on the Gareth Edwards' "Star Wars" spinoff, and like many of the folks getting involved with the new batch of films, there's something about the nostalgic pull that can't be resisted. "...it's never been my goal to do 'big' films because a big film in itself is not very interesting to me. I don't love big films for the sake of big films. It's not been a career drive to get to that point," he said. "But it's really exciting purely just »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies To Climax With A 45-Minute Battle

24 October 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The time is nearly upon us when we’ll finally say goodbye to Middle Earth, as Peter Jackson’s last hurrah – The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies – will soon be arriving in theatres. For those detractors who believe stretching out a pamphlet into a three-part fantasy epic is to blame for The Hobbit‘s sluggish pace, we’ve got news for you. According to EW, the ending scene will be a mammoth 45-minute long battle sequence.

“We have a rule that we’re not allowed to go more than two or three shots of anonymous people fighting without cutting back to our principal characters,” Peter Jackson told the magazine. “Otherwise the audience just ends up with battle fatigue.”

Along with Jackson’s interview are several key pieces of artwork, focusing on the climactic showdown. The brawl will take place at the foot of Lonely Mountain, as all races »

Star Wars is a pretty family-friendly film series, right? Wrong. It is a bonanza of death and murder, as shown in a video that tallies every on-screen death in the original trilogy.

Watch the Many, Many Deaths of 'Star Wars' in Under Three Minutes

24 October 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a lot of people died. Like, a lot of people. Despite its title, you don’t really think of Star Wars as a particularly violent series of movies. A new video from Digg might change that, counting up the number of onscreen deaths in the original trilogy, and it’s surprisingly high: 2,005,645,868, to be exact. Admittedly, much of that is estimated. (The video thanks the Star Wars Wikia for the suggested body counts for the destruction of Alderaan in the original movie, which immediately added 2,000,000,
