Trailer Trashin’: Matt Damon is Lost in Space in The Martian Official Trailer

28 August 2015 7:29 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s the last weekend of August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is at an end. But there’s still plenty of cool stuff coming to our theaters this year, from James Bond to Star Wars and everything in between. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at The Martian, the upcoming sci-fi film from director Ridley Scott.

Premise: A manned mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal Nasa, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.

My take: English filmmaker Ridley Scott has had a good relationship with science-fiction. The two films that helped put him on »

Watch: Fascinating 1982 ‘Blade Runner’ Convention Reel

27 August 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The history of “Blade Runner” is a unique one. To say that other films have not seen such a large-scale reevaluation, would be false. However, few films received so tepidly — with such ambivalence — upon their initial release, have managed to become as influential and perpetually relevant as Ridley Scott’s bar-setting dystopian classic. To give Warner Bros. some credit, they did seem to have a finger to the film’s pulse, even predicting the box office dud on their hands. Now we can say that a certain amount of the film’s failure was the result of timing — the world just wasn’t quite ready for “Blade Runner” — but it also must be noted that much of what was altered from the theatrical cut over the years (the voiceover and gaudy happy ending being the main changes) were aspects that the studio had asked for, only to then criticize.

Ridley Scott Confirms 'Prometheus 2' Is His Next Movie

27 August 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott is busier than ever, and there has been some speculation as to whether or not he would revisit the world of Blade Runner or Alien first. As suspected, the prolific filmmaker has confirmed that Prometheus 2, a sequel to his 2012 Alien prequel Prometheus, will be his next movie as a director. He has The Martian coming out this October, but as soon as it was wrapped, he didn't hesitate to jump into preproduction on this upcoming sci-fi thriller.

Prometheus originated as a prologue to the action seen in Ridley Scott's 1979 horror classic Alien. But the movie morphed into something much greater than a mere prequel, becoming its own thing and igniting a new franchise for 20th Century Fox. It took some pretty complicated ideas head-on and in turn tore audiences in two. Some longtime fans loved it, others hated it, but there is no denying it is interesting. »

The Hunger |Blu-ray Review

25 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Roundly dismissed upon its release by critics in 1983, Tony Scott’s classy, stylish art-house vampire film The Hunger arrives on Blu-ray as a demure addition to the Warner Bros. Archive Collection. A notable cult item still lacking of a deserving reappraisal for its significant merits, the film has long languished in obscurity with the exception of its references to the explicit lesbian sex scene shared between Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon (featured in a first-wave resurgence of interest in Lgbt cinematic themes with the documentary version of Vito Russo’s The Celluloid Closet, 1991). It represents one of three cinematic adaptations from horror writer Whitley Streiber, following the also forgotten Wolfen (1981), starring Albert Finney.

Miriam Blaylock (Deneuve) is an ancient yet breathtakingly beautiful vampire. Her lover of the past three centuries, John (David Bowie) has suddenly begun to age and decay, apparently something that has eventually happened to all of her past lovers, »

How 'Brazil' gave me the answers to life, the universe, and everything

24 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I never had a crisis of faith, because I never had any real faith in the first place. My parents were not wildly religious, but it was important to their lives in a general sense. My father's mother was a church organist, and my mother's mother was active in her own church in any number of ways. Both of my grandmothers lived in Memphis, so when we'd visit them, we'd have to make sure to schedule a trip long enough to show up at each of their churches at least once, just so they got to show off their grandchildren to their friends. In the life of my parents, church always seemed to serve primarily a social function. We moved frequently because of my dad's work as an engineer, and every place we moved, they became active in their local church. Each time, they made friends and they found a »

No Sweet Science To Be Found in Ron Wilson’s ‘Super Boxers’

23 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel Graphic Novel #8: Super Boxers (1983)

Plot and Pencils by Ron Wilson

Script by John Byrne

Inks by Armando Gil

Colors by Bob Sharen, Steve Oliff, John Tartaglione, Joe D’Esposito & Mark Bright

Published by Marvel Comics

Among some comic reviewers, there’s an understanding that you don’t talk about the cover of the comic that you’re writing about. It’s tied into that old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it would be a bit like critiquing a movie based on the movie poster in the theater lobby. One is completely separate from the other.

All of that said, the best thing about Ron Wilson’s 1983 graphic novel Super Boxers is Bill Sienkiewicz’s awesome cover.

The official title of the publication is Marvel® Graphic Novel No. 8: Super Boxers. Marvel’s then still young graphic novel line had already produced a number »

Luc Besson already has Dane DeHaan and the Pokemon-loving Cara Delevingne aboard for his ambitious new sci-fi epic Valerian. With those two in place, he’s adding to the roster, with Clive Owen signing on to play a character called Commander Arün Filitt.Originally created by writer Pierre Christian and artist Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967, the series of graphic novels charts the adventures of the titular time-travelling agent (DeHaan) and his female sidekick, Laureline (Delevingne).

‘Gotham’ Costume Designer Lisa Padovani Creates Villainy with Style

19 August 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the world of “Gotham,” time moves a little differently. “It’s yesterday, it’s today, and it’s tomorrow all at the same time,” creator Bruno Heller has said of the Fox drama’s gothic setting — and that aesthetic is evident from the city’s architecture all the way down to the inhabitants’ clothing, allowing Emmy-nominated costume designer Lisa Padovani to create a style that’s unique to the series.

“Even though it’s not a period piece, per se, it’s a concept piece, so everything is very particular,” Padovani says, admitting she tries to produce the majority of the show’s costumes inhouse, especially for characters like Jada Pinkett Smith’s villainous Fish Mooney, whose wardrobe is as integral to her character as her killer instinct. “It’s a problem for costume designers in TV because you’re at the mercy of whatever’s going on in fashion. »

Matt Damon sciences the sh*t out of The Martian trailer

19 August 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In Ridley Scott’s The Martian – based on the novel by Andy Weir – astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a mission to Mars gone wrong. He’s left behind by his Ares 3 crew, stranded on Mars with limited resources. While he grows potatoes and burns hydrazine (for water) to survive, Watney makes countless attempts to connect with Nasa and his Ares 3 crew.

“I’m still alive,” Watney croaks in The Martian’s newest trailer. “Surprise!”

Don’t worry, you guys – Donald Glover totally knows how to save Mark Watney. Here’s hoping it involves “Community”’s Dreamatorium.

The Martian – Scott’s fourth sci-fi film after Alien, Blade Runner, and Prometheus – also stars Jessica ChastainChiwetel EjioforJeff Daniels, Sebastian StanKate MaraSean BeanKristen Wiig, and Michael Pena. It will play the Toronto International Film Festival before its October 2 wide release.

Video of the Day: Watch a supercut of various robot depictions in film

19 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Robots have been a staple on the big screen for many decades, showing up as far back as Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic Metropolis and as recently as Alex Garland’s 2015 film Ex Machina. With numerous depictions of robots have come numerous ideas of what they look like, what they’re capable of, whether they’re good or evil, and other such concerns.

Now vimeo user Mennomail has made a mashup of the various robotic representations on the big screen over the years. The video is set to both Fractals by Monea Music and Ich Will by Rammstein, and highlights both the similarities and differences in how robots have been depicted by various filmmakers. Mennomail also released a list of films from which scenes appear, which is as follows:

Films used (in alphabetical order)

1. Automata (2014)

2. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

3. Artificial Intelligence: AI (2001)

4. Alien (1979)

5. Aliens (1986)

6. Bicentennial Man (1999)

5 Incredible Films That Almost Never Got Made

18 August 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As film after film rolls into our theatres, we generally give little thought to the process that brought them there – beyond, perhaps, appreciating the technical prowess on display. The fact is, for most movies, the process begins long before, and involves screenplay purchases, re-writes, production financing and detailed scheduling, among other challenges. In reality, getting any film into a theatre is, in itself, an achievement of perseverance, ambition, and dedication.

Stories of troubled productions are legion, with the most famous often generating their own films. Possibly the greatest example of this is The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which is a film adaptation of the book Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. Terry Gilliam has made a reported seven attempts to film this project between 1998 and 2014, with the most spectacular occurring in 2000, when cameras actually rolled, but were halted by catastrophic flooding, illness and financial difficulty.

13 strange changes made to movies during production

17 August 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From title changes to the addition of rubber demons, here's a selection of some rather strange movie alterations from cinema history...

The course of film production seldom runs smooth, and even the greatest films can suffer from all sorts of behind-the-scenes problems. For a very recent example, just look at Fantastic Four, a film with which suffered the kind of difficult production that will no doubt inspire books on the subject in the near future.

At any rate, the movies on this list are all examples of strange (and sometimes last-minute) changes, often imposed by producers or executives. In some unfortunate cases, the changes haven't been particularly beneficial, but one alteration turned out to be a pioneering moment in cinema history.

In every instance, the changes are unusual, surprising, or sometimes downright baffling ...
