New York Film Festival Announces Full Projections Slate, Including Films From Véréna Paravel, Lucien Castaing-Taylor, and Xu Bing

17 August 2017 11:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center has the complete lineup for its Projections section of the 55th New York Film Festival, which will unspool October 6 – 9. The year’s slate is comprised of eight features and eight shorts programs, each designed to present “an international selection of film and video work that expands upon our notions of what the moving image can do and be.” Each year, the Projections section of the festival seeks out innovative new films told in unique and often experimental new ways, and 2017 seems to be no different.

“Projections is the New York Film Festival’s home for adventurous work, and our 2017 lineup attests to the sheer number and variety of ways in which our most vital artists are exploring the possibilities of cinematic language,” said Dennis Lim, Fslc Director of Programming and one of the curators of Projections. “We’ve extended the program by a day this year, »

Leonardo DiCaprio Is Da Vinci in Upcoming Biopic

13 August 2017 3:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Well, this just seems perfect. It has been officially announced that Leonardo DiCaprio will play the painter/scientist and fellow Leonardo, Leonardo da Vinci in a biopic based off of author Walter Isaacson's book called, you guessed it, Leonardo da Vinci. As it turns out, Paramount won an intense bidding war for the project over Universal who was reportedly bringing out the big guns to acquire the biopic. DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson will produce the movie for their Appian Way banner.

Deadline reported the news while also sharing that DiCaprio was allegedly named after da Vinci. The story goes that DiCaprio's mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in Italy while pregnant with the superstar actor. Legend has it that DiCaprio kicked for the first time while his mother was looking at the painting and gained a name. It is not clear what painting that his mother was looking at, »

13 August 2017 1:06 AM, PDT | Behindwoods | See recent Behindwoods news »

One of the most popular actors and Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio will be seen next in the biopic of Leonardo da Vinci who was a renowned leading artist and an intellectual of the Italian Renaissance known for his enduring works, The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa.

DiCaprio will be playing da Vinci in the film, and it marks DiCaprio’s ninth project in which he plays a real life character. Da Vinci was born in 1452 and died in 1519. DiCaprio’s desire to portray da Vinci on film is no coincidence. He was named Leonardo because his pregnant mother was looking »

Blu-Ray Promo For Alien: Covenant Places You On The Path To Paradise

The journey to Paradise begins in Hell, and with almost 20 minutes of additional footage, the Alien: Covenant Blu-ray is one you won’t want to miss.

New Fay Cry 5 Artwork Released Ahead Of Friday’s Reveal

24 May 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Strange things are afoot in Hope County. If you recall the batch of teaser videos Ubisoft released for Far Cry 5 earlier this week, you’ll likely recall hearing the hair-raising screams of a man seemingly in distress. Well, it looks like we now know exactly why the poor sod was emptying his lungs in the middle of nowhere.

Ahead of Friday’s big reveal for the sequel, Ubisoft has released a new piece of key artwork for Far Cry 5 that provides a few hints as to what exactly’s going on in the steep hills of Montana. The image, which you can see in all its glory for yourselves down below, is affectionally titled ‘The Last Supper,’ a fitting reference to the Biblical event of the same name, only this reenactment has much more impressive beards on display.

Now, I’m not usually one to judge a book by its cover, »

Cannes Review: ‘The Square’ Hunts the Same Meaty Game as ‘Force Majeure’ and Further Twists the Knife

20 May 2017 6:24 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When it comes to satire there are few easier targets than the world of contemporary art. “My 5-year-old could do that,” so goes the saying. This is not to indicate that the art world is no longer fair game, but the self-seriousness of that scene and the conceptual nature of what it tends to put out have been battered with the same stick for so long by now that it’s become almost impervious to such jabs. Almost.

One of the rare exceptions might be Ruben Östlund’s The Square, an acerbic, sphincter-tightening dark comedy that works as a sort of drawn-out spiritual castration for its über chic Stockholm art curator protagonist. Indeed, Östlund’s film is about our relationship with art but it’s about a number of other things, too — perhaps a few too many things, even if you never really feel the 142-minute running time. It’s about class, »

Behind The Graduate‘s “Leg Shot”: Daniel Raim on Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story

28 April 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Two unsung heroes of the American film industry get their due in Daniel Raim’s extraordinary documentary Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story. Most filmgoers – even the most informed ones – have probably never heard of Harold and Lillian Michelson, but the history of movies was forever changed by their contributions to classics like The Ten Commandments, The Graduate, The Apartment, West Side Story, and DePalma’s Scarface. Harold was a storyboard artist and Lillian ran a massive Hollywood research library; separately or together, they were essential resources for directors including Alfred Hitchcock, Francis Coppola, Danny DeVito, and Stanley Kubrick.

A Sight for Sounds: Moments in Movies Instantly Elevated by the Use of Music

28 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

When Guardians of the Galaxy was first released in 2014 for all its quirk and swagger the thing that really separated it from the rest of the Marvel pack was its use of music. Director James Gunn revealed that the film’s composer, Tyler Bates, had written large chunks of the score first so that they could film to the actual music. In many ways the film’s personality is its score, and with the release of the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in cinemas this week audiences can expect more of the same.

Music is probably the most important thing in cinema for instantly establishing mood, tone and visual cues. From the menacing piano keys of John Williams’ memorable score in Jaws to the sheer elation of Alan Silvestri’s triumphant overture in Back to the Future, a film’s accompanying score is often as unforgettable as the movie itself. »

Nicolas Winding Refn Teases ‘Too Old To Die Young’ TV Series With Punk Track

25 April 2017 11:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Get psyched for “Too Old to Die Young.”

It’s only been a few months since we found out that Nicolas Winding Refn will be turning his artistic prowess towards the small screen for the Amazon crime drama series “Too Old to Die Young.” The filmmaker set Twitter ablaze on Tuesday with a simple post teasing the show.

The tweet included a 30-second clip of British punk act The Bollock Brothers’ “The Last Supper,” playing over a dark graphic design reminiscent of the director’s noir-adjacent sensibilities. Only Refn’s name and the title of his show give a hint what the post is about.

Take a look at the tweet:
