[Comic Execution] 8/29 – Wayward, Kung Fu Limited, And Then Emily Was Gone

29 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Last August here in Saint Louis is a very distinctive time of year. We’re right on the cusp of September and as the rest of the continent starts to cool down, the summer doldrums morph into powerful storms and heavy rain. This happens in spring as well but that season is no fun because tornadoes show up and everyone has to flee for the nearest basement. No, the last week of August is much stranger; the temperatures are still high but as muggy days dissolve into balmy nights, the sky cracks open and oceans spill forth. I sound poetic about this because these changes herald the absolute most wonderful time of year, as many of our residents will testify; early autumn. September is a wonderful month for me, as it’s my birthday, and that is followed up by October, both the best month of the year, containing the best day of the year. »

Terry Gilliam on 13 of the Most Difficult Scenes He Ever Shot

28 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sometimes it’s a wonder he gets any movies made at all. Over the course of his legendary career, Terry Gilliam (BrazilTime Bandits, 12 Monkeys) has built a reputation as a director who likes to try for the impossible — be they shots, scenes, or entire movies. This is, after all, a man who made a romantic comedy about homeless people, madness, and death (The Fisher King). A man who made a microbudget, absurdist, effects-laden coming-of-age fantasy (Tideland). A man who made a film of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas that's just as nutty, if not more so, as the original book.Sometimes his job is difficult because he sets impossible challenges for himself. Sometimes it’s difficult because fate doesn’t cooperate: His attempted filming of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote was famously scuttled due to horrid weather and an ill lead, as depicted »

Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Exclusive Character Posters For The Zero Theorem Introduce the Film’s Characters and their Philosophies

19 August 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I finally got a chance to see Terry Gilliam’s new film The Zero Theorem and was mightily impressed by its ability to conjure some of the magic of Gilliam classics like Brazil and Twelve Monkeys (albeit in a far warmer, less brutal manner than the latter film).  So I'm really glad we're debuting these character posters that don't just showcase the performers in the film, but the philosophies of the people they are playing.  The movie is all about ideas, a philosophical dialogue.  And these get at that. The Zero Theorem stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by Management, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation; Melanie ThierryTilda Swinton, and David Thewlis also star.  The film hits iTunes today, August 19th and limited theaters on September 19th.  Be sure to check out the trailer and »

Interview: Emmy-nominated composer Michael Price on scoring 'Sherlock'

14 August 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Poznan, Poland— Michael Price gets around. The British composer leaves Poznan today after being one of the featured speakers at the Transatlantyk Festival, a week-long event dedicated to film, music, and cuisine,  to head straight to Los Angeles for the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday (16). Price is nominated for the first time for Outstanding music composition for a miniseries, movie or a special (original dramatic score) for “Sherlock,” the BBC  series he composes music for with David Arnold.  Price apprenticed with a number of composers, but he also worked as a music editor for years, on such films as “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “Love Actually,” and “Nanny McPhee.” I hopped in a car with Price to interview him on our way to Transatlantyk’s closing gala. You started as an assistant for the late composer Michael Kamen ("Brazil,""Band Of Brothers," "Lethal Weapon," "Mr. Holland's Opus"), who »

It's not your fault: Robin Williams' legacy and understanding mental illness

13 August 2014 4:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It has now been confirmed that Robin Williams, who was found dead on Monday (August 11), took his own life.

What has not been confirmed, yet is bizarrely still being widely reported, is that Williams suffered from either bipolar disorder or clinical depression. While he was candid about his drug and alcohol addiction, for which he most recently sought treatment last month, Williams never stated that he had been diagnosed with any other mental illness.

Asked specifically by NPR's Terry Gross in 2006, Williams in fact confirmed the opposite. "No clinical depression, no," he said. "I get bummed, like I think a lot of us do at certain times. You look at the world and go 'Whoa'. Other moments you look and go 'Oh, things are okay'.

"Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes. Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? »

Terry Gilliam Says ‘Don Quixote’ Is Now About “How Movies Can Damage People”

11 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If anyone knows how movies can damage people, it’s Terry Gilliam. The director has battled over many a film in his time. He fought Universal brass over Brazil, and Columbia over The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Most catastrophically, he battled weather, disaster, and illness during the original shoot of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. […]

Terry Gilliam's ‘Don Quixote’ Movie Will Shoot After Christmas With Modernized Plot

7 August 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After nearly two decades of aborted attempts and frustration, Terry Gilliam seems like he will finally bring “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” to life. The “Brazil” filmmaker and Monty Python member told TheWrap on Thursday that he has financing for the film and plans to shoot after Christmas. The script has evolved significantly since he first tried to make the movie with Johnny Depp in the late '90s (see the documentary “Lost in La Mancha” for a very detailed look at that era), and now is a modernized, »

Michael Keaton Goes Batsh*t In New ‘Birdman Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance’ Trailer And Poster

1 August 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After years of appearing in movies that were reasonable but didn’t capitalise on his immense talents, Michael Keaton looks to be making a triumphant return to leading man status in Birdman Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance.

Opening the Venice Film Festival, this twisted tale of a former superhero actor-turned-Broadway producer is directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Babel) and features Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton and the brilliant Andrea Riseborough.

Here’s the poster, that sees things looking up for Keaton, but perhaps not in the way he expected…

And if that’s not enough to pique your interest, a new trailer has been released, showcasing the former Batman losing his spandex-clad marbles in an atmosphere reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil

Though Iñárritu can’t quite resist a pretentious subtitle (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance), this is likely to be a feature with »

The fifth season of “Game Of Thrones” is about to get underway any minute now and the fast-working HBO show is already scheduled for an April 2015 premiere. The show works at a rather break-neck pace, and so while production is set to begin any moment now (and some of the cast was at Comic-Con today), naturally, the new members of the cast have been announced. And there are nine new members to the ever expanding troupe. Perhaps the most notable are Jonathan Pryce and Alexander Siddig, the former being the Welsh actor and star of Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” among many other notable roles including the villain in 1997 Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies" and the president opposite Madonna in “Evita” (1996). He’s also been part of the “Pirates Of the Caribbean” franchise and if you want to see a late-era comeback, you must see his terrific performance in the Sundance »
