Scott Glenn on 'The Defenders' and Why 'Silence of the Lambs' Is a Coming-of-Age Movie

18 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There is a certain relish to the way Scott Glenn describes a knife. His voice – a sort of Midwestern drawl that has a touch of Pittsburgh flint and a lot of Ketchum, Idaho, where he's called home for decades, in it – stays slow and steady as he talks about some of the various weapons he's been using in his martial-arts training lately. You can tell from the gleam in his eye, however, that the actor is getting a serious kick out detailing his recent discoveries in self-defense cutlery.

‘Orphan Black’ Finale: Co-Creators Reveal the ‘Apocalypse Now’ Ending They Had in Mind

13 August 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Orphan Black” came to an end after five seasons last night, but its story goes much further back. Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, the clone drama’s co-creators, were developing the series for more than a dozen years before it premiered — a long journey they discussed with Vulture to mark the occasion of the series finale.

“A while ago, John and I looked at our original notes from 2001, about what the story would be,” Manson said of the show’s narrative trajectory and whether it ended the way they imagined it would. “Even those first cursory notes really have the seed of ‘Orphan Black’ in them.”

Still, it wasn’t exactly what they had in mind: “Graeme and I always imagined a bit of an ‘Apocalypse Now’ type of ending,” Fawcett admitted. “In the end, »

‘Orphan Black’ Review: Series Finale ‘Rights the Wrongs’ of an Uneven But Ultimately Satisfying Season

12 August 2017 8:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “To Right the Wrongs of Many,” the series finale of “Orphan Black.”]

BBC America has dubbed “Orphan Black’s” last season “The Final Trip,” and it has been an uneven ride of highs and lows that nevertheless ended satisfactorily.

The season began with the promise that Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) and her sestras would take a stand once and for all to take down the shadowy man who was behind behind their cloning and who still wanted to control their biology. It was exciting to think of the Ledas coming together in force to finally stick it to the man.

Unfortunately putting a face to the name P.T. Westmoreland (Stephen McHattie) proved to be too much of a bizarre distraction. While his Victorian affectations were entertaining, his entire storyline this year — from the “Island of Dr. Moreau” vibes to that twisted Victorian dress-up dinner party — felt far too cartoonish to be worthy of the series’ big bad.

These Guys Were Almost Han Solo in Star Wars, Not Harrison Ford

12 August 2017 12:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Lucasfilm announced plans for a standalone Han Solo prequel, there didn't seem to be an actor in Hollywood who didn't want a crack at playing the younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. Producer Kathleen Kennedy and the film's original directing team looked at a slew of actors between the ages of 17 and 34. At one point, the short list reportedly included Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Dave Franco, Jack Raynor, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Emory Cohen, and Blake Jenner, before the role was ultimately given to Alden Aron-Reich. But the search for the original Han Solo was just as wide searching, and possibly a little more difficult to nail down, with quit a few Hollywood icons targeted for the role.

Since the release of the original Star Wars film in 1977, a slew of names have surfaced as prospective would-be Millennium Falcon piloting smugglers who were nearly cast »

Ruth Negga Joins Brad Pitt in Sci-Fi Thriller Ad Astra

7 August 2017 7:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones already set to star, the sci-fi thriller Ad Astra is filling out its supporting cast, with Oscar-nominated actress Ruth Negga signing on to star. Unfortunately, no details have been given regarding her character yet, and it isn't clear how many more primary roles still need to be filled out for this sci-fi thriller. This film continues the successful partnership between Brad Pitt's production company Plan B and New Regency, who have teamed up on critically-acclaimed films such as The Big Short, Best Picture Winner 12 Years A Slave and director Ryan Coogler's upcoming feature Wrong Answer.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the story centers on one man's journey across the solar system to find his long-missing father, a "renegade scientist who poses a threat to all mankind." The first report on this project back in June revealed that Brad Pitt is playing Roy McBride, »

Image announces new sci-fi graphic novel Golgotha

2 August 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Image Comics has announced that writer and Top Cow President/COO Matt Hawkins (Think Tank) teams up with writer Bryan Hill (Postal) and artist Yuki Saeki (GameSpace) for the grittily realistic science fiction graphic novel Golgotha this October.

“Golgotha combines my obsession with religion and science fiction, and was a fun project to do,” said Hawkins. “Bryan Hill and I always looked at this as a kind of Apocalypse Now meets 2001 mash-up.”

In the near future, a group of scientists and military operatives are sent on an interplanetary mission to develop Earth’s first off-world colony. While the crew of the Golgotha hibernates for travel, technology on Earth continues to advance—so much so that when they land on the planet, the crew finds it already inhabited…by another team from Earth that arrived years before they have.

Now the crew of the Golgotha find themselves relics of their own time, »

The Best TV Episodes of July 2017 — Watch

31 July 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following contains light spoilers for the included series.]

The Defiant Ones

Season 1, Episode 3

Written by: Allen Hughes, Lasse Jarvi, Doug Pray

Directed by: Allen Hughes

Allen Hughes’ well-cut music documentary is populated with enough industry giants that just listening to them babble for four hours would’ve been well worth the time. But Hughes skillfully incorporated historical footage with those fascinating reflections, and never is the combination more captivating than in Episode 3.

Taking us back to the release of Dr. Dre’s “Chronic” album, Episode 3 features vital discussions about free speech, how rap was a misunderstood tool of rebellion, and why Jimmy Iovine and Dre persevered despited persecution. It’s not just about overcoming censorship and catering to the demand of customers: “The Defiant Ones” shows and tells us why this was a make-or-break moment for the most popular music in the country (especially as coastal rap battles turned deadly).

The Best War Movies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” what is the best war movie ever made?

Howard Hawks’ “The Dawn Patrol,” from 1930, shows soldiers and officers cracking up from the cruelty of their missions — and shows the ones who manage not to, singing and clowning with an exuberance that suggests the rictus of a death mask. There’s courage and heroism, virtue and honor — at a price that makes the words themselves seem foul. John Ford’s “The Lost Patrol, »

Kong: Skull Island 3-D

Kong is back, transformed into a ‘MonsteVerse’ colossus suitable for combat with Kaiju-sized foes. The key inspiration is video games but the day is saved by capable performers in mostly amusing roles. Even though the show treats its fantasy halfway seriously, it’s still an infantile guns ‘n’ monsters romp, embellished with impressive visual effects.

Film Club: War For The Planet Of The Apes wins over our resident Apes reboot skeptic

21 July 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The final live episode of Film Club turns out to be a wartime double bill, as The A.V. Club’s film critics chase their discussion of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk with a look at War For The Planet Of The Apes. The third entry in the rebooted Planet Of The Apes series is part Clint Eastwood-style western, part Apocalypse Now homage, and part prison-break movie—an ambitious mix of genres that seems to have finally won over A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club’s film editor and resident Apes-reboot skeptic.

‘Dunkirk’ Box Office: Why It Stands Little Chance of Breaking War Movie Records

20 July 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Christopher Nolan’s World War II retreat-and-rescue epic “Dunkirk” has critical acclaim and is the first 2017 studio film to stand as a serious awards contender. However, it’s unlikely to become a significant player among the top war films at the box office.

Over the last decade, Nolan’s made five films that grossed $200 million-$658 million (adjusted domestic). However, while war films can still draw big numbers (Clint Eastwood’s 2014’s “American Sniper” earned $381 million, domestic adjusted), Nolan’s movie may be hampered by history.

War is the backdrop to some of the most popular films of all time, including “Star Wars” as well as “Gone With the Wind” and “The Sound of Music,” the #1 and 3 domestic grossers of all time. David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia” was more of a biography-character study, but it was an epic »

Dunkirk Review: A Thrilling Exercise In Storytelling & Filmmaking

18 July 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

For the past several years, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has been experimenting with some pretty big, outlandish ideas. If you take a look at the trend in his original films, The Prestige, Inception, and Interstellar, you can see a trend there that delves both inwards and outwards of the human psyche. For a man who’s tackled the deepest depths of the imagination, as well as the farthest reaches of outer space…where would he go next?

For his latest film, Dunkirk, Nolan has his most grounded subject matter yet in the form of a relatively obscure rescue mission that, to my knowledge, has received little to no screen time in decades past. However, if you were going into this hoping for something along the lines of Saving Private Ryan, Hacksaw Ridge, or even Apocalypse Now, you’ll be sorely disappointed. Dunkirk, it seems, was little more than a setting for »

Newswire: Weekend Box Office: Weekend of The Apes

17 July 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a post-apocalyptic mid-June weekend, as big studio tentpoles fall slightly below projections, intelligent (but not that intelligent) apes rule the box office. Matt ReevesWar For The Planet Of The Apes took the No. 1 spot this weekend with an estimated $56.5 million, almost $16 million less than its predecessor in the rebooted Apes series, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. (This makes it the second Apocalypse Now-obsessed, Vietnam-referencing super-ape movie of the year to open below projections.) But look, $56.5 million is still a heck of a lot of money—more than enough to beat Spider-Man: Homecoming, which suffered the worst second-weekend crash in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to land at No. 2 with $45.2 million. Please note that this is still a lot of money, and that Homecoming has already made $469 million worldwide.

War for the Planet of the Apes review – smart simian showdown

16 July 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Motion-capture apes are the stars of the thrilling third prequel, a psychological western turned war movie

“Humans get sick, apes get smart, humans kill apes.” This is how Steve Zahn’s Bad Ape summarises the previous Planet of the Apes reboots. In the third of the Apes prequels (and director Matt Reeves’s second film in the series), the apes are out for revenge, led by a grizzled Caesar (Andy Serkis), whose driving “hate” is stoked by the death of his son at the hands of violent humans. Flanked by his second-in-command, gentle orang-utan Maurice (Karin Konoval), and two other apes, Caesar and co ride on horseback (an image I found beautiful, evocative and bizarre) across beaches, fields and snow-capped mountains to the prison camp where Woody Harrelson’s Colonel has rounded up the remaining apes to build a Trumpian “wall”.

Along the way they pick up a mute child (Amiah Miller) and Bad Ape, »

All The Biblical References In War For The Planet Of The Apes [Spoilers]

14 July 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This post contains spoilers for War for the Planet of the Apes.

War for the Planet of the Apes premiered across the United States last night, and since Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is one of my favorite movies, I was front and center to catch the latest film in this incredible series (literally, I was seated in the second row from the front, dead center). By the time the credits rolled, I was convinced I had seen not a modern day classic, but an all-time treatise on filmmaking. War is the best reviewed film in the series, and director Matt Reeves is firing on all cylinders, doing things with CGI characters that other filmmakers aren't even conceiving.
