Adam Driver compares Star Wars: Episode VIII to The Empire Strikes Back

14 September 2016 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With many comparing Star Wars: The Force Awakens to George LucasA New Hope, it would make sense that one of the movie’s stars is comparing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII to The Empire Strikes Back.

“It’s similar to how The Empire Strikes Back has a different tone,” Adam Driver told Collider. “For that people always go ‘oooh, it’s dark’ but I don’t know that it necessarily is. It’s just different in tone in a way that I think is great and necessary but also very clear. [Johnson] trusts [that] his audience is ready for nuance and ambiguity. He’s not dumbing anything down for someone and that’s really fun to play”.

“Rian’s writing is so clear,” he adds. “I learned a lot of things about my character through his writing. Some things we talked about before and some things we didn’t. He »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Deepwater Horizon’

13 September 2016 8:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At the end of “Diamonds Are Forever,” audiences cheer when James Bond succeeds in blowing up the giant oil platform the evil Blofeld uses as his base. It’s a spectacular finale, to be sure, though nowhere near as impressive as the real-life destruction wrought in “Deepwater Horizon,” a stunning Hollywood restaging of the explosion that consumed the Transocean deepwater drilling rig on April 20, 2010. Needless to say, no one cheers this time around: We all know that 11 men lost their lives in the accident, and that the ensuing oil spill became the country’s all-time worst ecological disaster. And yet, despite the fact that director Peter Berg presents the action as if everyone in the audience is an engineer, the excitement is undeniable. For a movie in which you can’t follow what’s going on for 75% of the time, “Deepwater Horizon” proves remarkably thrilling — and could well become one »

Blair Witch Review [Tiff 2016]

12 September 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you’re asking why we need another found footage movie – let alone another sequel to The Blair Witch Project – then you don’t watch enough horror movies. The reality is simple. If it wasn’t now, then it’d happen sometime in the future. And if you’re complaining that Blair Witch doesn’t do anything “different,” well then you Certainly don’t watch enough found footage schlock, because if you sifted through the same handy-cam trash I do on a monthly – nay, Weekly – basis, you’d be thanking Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, not questioning their surprise horror sequel.

James Allen McCune stars as the brother to The Blair Witch Projects‘s Heather Donahue – also named James – who believes his long-lost sister is still alive after an ominous YouTube clip surfaces. He can’t go alone, so he enlists his best friend (Pete, played by Brandon Scott) and accompanying girlfriend (Ashley, »

Celebrate National Video Games Day By The Era

12 September 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Believe it not video games actually have their own national day and it falls on September 12th. The crew at Cinelinx are figuring out ways to make this a national holiday, but we thought we could still celebrate too. So we compiled a list of video games from every generation you should enjoy to see the evolution of video games over the years.

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

The First Video Game Ever

The earliest video game on record seems to be Bertie the Brain which was a tic-tac-toe game that put human vs the computer. This game was developed in Toronto and didn’t include any type of physics or anything particular special, but it was technically the first arcade game created purely to play a game. With that in mind I dug up a tic-tac-toe game online that you can check out: http://playtictactoe.org/

Newswire: The co-director of Sausage Party is re-making The Toxic Avenger

12 September 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit that the Toxic Avenger movies have been quite successful. (Relatively, anyway. This ain’t Jurassic Park we’re talking about here.) Lloyd Kaufman’s Troma Entertainment—again, for better or for worse—is basically The House That Toxie Built, and the movies’ descent into “putridness and nihilism,” as The A.V. Club’s Charles Bramesco put it in his rundown of the series, reflects the larger withdrawal of the Troma cult into a insular, methane-scented world of its very own.

In other words, somebody needs to come and pull New Jersey’s favorite mutant son from the toxic waste dump of his own franchise, and Conrad Vernon is here to attempt just that. Deadline reports that the Sausage Party co-director, who previously directed the more family-friendly animated films Shrek 2, Monsters Vs. Aliens, and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most »

Jurassic World: the latest on the planned new trilogy

11 September 2016 10:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 12, 2016

The next Jurassic Park film will definitely be the second part of a trilogy, its director confirms.

Having successfully debuted his new movie, A Monster Calls, at the Toronto International Film Festival (to outstanding reviews as well), director Juan Antonio Bayona is next set to gear up for filming on Jurassic World 2 (or Jurassic Park 5, if you prefer). Bayona is taking over the director’s chair from Colin Trevorrow (who’s off making Star Wars: Episode IX) on the new movie.

He’s been chatting about the new Jurassic Park film too, in an interview with Lrm. And in doing so, he's confirmed the new trilogy plans.

“It’s very interesting”, Bayona said. “The whole Jurassic World is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We’re writing the second chapter, and it’s very interesting where he’s leading the story”.

Jurassic World 2 Director Confirms New Trilogy Is Coming

11 September 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for a lot more dinosaur goodness, because Jurassic World is definitely going to be a trilogy. While Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow had previously stated that he and Steven Spielberg had conceived that Jurassic Park revival as a trilogy, it has now been confirmed that is indeed going to be the case. Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona recently stated that his contribution to the franchise will indeed be the second part of a new trilogy.

Bayona is currently at the Toronto International Film Festival in support of his new movie A Monster Calls. While that movie is getting rave reviews and a lot of buzz, there is obviously a ton of interest in his next movie, the highly-anticipated Jurassic World sequel. Lrm caught up with Bayona at the festival and the director revealed some details about Jurassic World 2, including the confirmation that it will be a trilogy, as well as some other information. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘A Monster Calls’

11 September 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a year full of fantastic creatures and imaginary friends — in which orphan Pete adopted his own dragon and lonely Sophie found a Big Friendly Giant to keep her company — 12-year-old Conor O’Malley, the young hero of “A Monster Calls,” may as well have drawn the short end of the stick: His CG buddy is a tree.

While his mother (Felicity Jones) battles cancer and his dad (Toby Kebbell) gets ready to move across the ocean to America, the poor British kid (a lonely little-boy-lost played by relative newcomer Lewis MacDougall) is beset by problems too big to confront alone. His torment awakens the ancient yew tree (magnificently voiced by Liam Neeson) just beyond his bedroom window. When the tree unexpectedly uproots itself and stomps on enormous gnarled-root legs over to Conor’s house, it’s meant to be quite an intimidating encounter, but the boy isn’t scared »

Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona teases big trilogy plans

10 September 2016 7:33 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After the mixed response to the Jurassic Park sequels, last year’s Jurassic World was thankfully well-received by fans and a huge hit at the box office. As a result, it probably shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to learn that a third instalment will follow the already confirmed sequel (which will be helmed by […]

The strange prehistory of 1995's Congo

9 September 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Sep 12, 2016

It was a camp classic in 1995, but did you know Congo was once going to be made in the early 80s with a real gorilla and Sean Connery?

"Congo is a dead project that will never be made" - Michael Crichton, 1983

Just about everywhere you looked in the summer of 1995, a pair of simian eyes stared back at you from the poster of Congo. Based on the best-selling Michael Crichton novel, Congo was billed as that year’s equivalent of Jurassic Park - another exciting creature feature with cutting-edge special effects and maybe just a tiny dash of horror.

“It’s a little like Alien at the beginning,” enthused director Frank Marshall, “in that it’s based in science fact, and like Indiana Jones at the end, with the lost city of Zinj.”

[Venice Review] Austerlitz

8 September 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Having experimented with feature-length fiction films, shorts, and archival-footage documentaries in the course of his career, Sergei Loznitsa’s output since his 2014 Ukrainian crisis documentary Maidan has both garnered him greater acclaim than before and zeroed in on cinema as a collectively generated form.

In Maidan, Loznitsa’s camera is on the ground, observing the crowd gathering in Kiev for what was initially a pacific protest against President Yanukovych. Watching the film’s early scenes and knowing what’s going to happen later gives a devastating power to those hopeful, spontaneous short moments around the square. You are watching a revolution while it’s happening, but it’s that plurality, that mixture of faces passing by, that prompts you to assemble it in your mind. Similarly, 2015’s The Event captures the essence of uncertainty in a crowd as history is unfolding — or is it? Loznitsa’s films are magnetically attracted to collectivity, »

The 27 greatest stop motion movies of all time

8 September 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Sep 16, 2016

With Kubo & The Two Strings now playing, we salute some of our favourite stop motion animated movies...

With Laika's visually sumptuous and breathtaking stop motion masterpiece Kubo And The Two Strings dazzling audiences throughout the country, what better time to celebrate this singular and remarkable art form?

The effect is created when an on-screen character or object is carefully manipulated one frame at a time, leading to an illusion of movement during playback - and such fiendishly intricate work, which takes years of dedication, deserves to be honoured. Here are the greatest examples of stop motion movie mastery.

The Humpty Dumpty Circus (1898)

What defines the elusive appeal of stop motion? Surely a great deal of it is down to the blend of the recognisable and the uncanny: an simulation of recognisably human movement that still has a touch of the fantastical about it. These contradictions were put »

Avatar Sequels Are a Family Saga Says James Cameron

8 September 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We know that we are getting not one, not two but four (yes, four) sequels to Avatar starting in 2018, but up until now we have heard very little about what the movies will be about. While it may not be much, director James Cameron has finally spilled some details about Avatar 2 and beyond. From the sound of things, it looks like we are in for the most expensive family drama of all-time.

Currently, an Avatar prequel Cirque du Soleil show called Toruk - The First Night has been touring the United States and just started a run in New York. Cameron spoke with Variety about the show, which he served as a consultant on, and in the process, revealed a bit about the upcoming sequels. Here is what he had to say.

Summer Movies By The Numbers: 2015 vs. 2016

7 September 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We all know that this summer movie season hasn’t exactly been stellar. To figure out exactly how bad it was, we’re comparing it to last year’s summer movie season as well as some of the best in the past. 

Back a few years ago when the studios started announcing the films that would be releasing summer 2015 and summer 2016, it seemed too good to be true. We were licking our lips over an unusually large number of big-budget exciting-sounding titles that were going to be duking it out over two of the biggest summer movie seasons ever. Between long-awaited sequels in the Jurassic Park, Terminator, Independence Day, Jason Bourne, and Star Trek franchises, we were getting more superhero movies, more Pixar films, and more reboots of classic hits than we knew what to do with. It simply seemed like a very good time to be a theater attendee »

The garbage will Not do: behold 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' VFX reel

7 September 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm's go-to for their Star Wars franchise, did wonders with the latest release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Dare we pull back the curtain and see how much they really created for the film? What is real, anyway? A lot of people prefer practical effects to CGI (me too) but CG isn't a bad thing. When it's mixed seamlessly with regular footage and practical effects it can do wonders (and is why something like Jurassic Park still looks great). It's when it's not integrated well that it becomes an issue for viewers. Luckily, that's not a problem for The Force Awakens. We are pleased to share a sample of the visual effects work created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The history of Ilm leads all the way back to 1975 and origins of Star Wars and The Force Awakens gave us the opportunity to once again push »

Summer Box Office Review: How Record Numbers Are Masking a Dark Downturn

7 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Summer 2016 had a hard act to follow. Last summer had “Jurassic Park” ($652 million), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($459 million), and “Inside Out” ($356 million) leading the way, which contributed to a record-breaking year of more than $11 billion.

Early numbers show $4.25 billion for the summer, which isn’t bad; it’s down about 4% from last year, and this summer is one week shorter due to a normal calendar shift. However, a closer look reveals real concerns. There’s the number of expensive flops, but others are deeply rooted in near-term future studio plans. That suggests a risky future for filmed entertainment that depends on theaters (and that theaters depend on).

So, what’s the trouble?

The box office may have declined by 4%, but attendance fell twice as much.

Theaters have steadily increased ticket prices, with a big push last December in anticipation of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Adjusting for the price hike, »

Toronto Film Festival: 7 Burning Questions from Nate Parker to ‘La La Land’

6 September 2016 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto Film Festival is always known for its hodgepodge of big studio titles, small indies and everything in between. But this year’s gathering up north is facing more uncertainty than usual. Yes, there will be a smattering of Oscars favorites, but Toronto 2016 may also set the stage for a few upsets, surprises, and scandals. Variety‘s Brent Lang and Ramin Setoodeh look ahead to what might unfold.

(1) Can Nate Parker Handle Difficult Questions About his Past? 

The Toronto Film Festival serves as the official launch of awards season, but all eyes will be on Nate Parker this year. The controversial star, writer, director and producer of “The Birth of a Nation,” has struggled in the last few weeks to answer questions about a dark incident from his past: in 1999, as an undergraduate at Penn State, Parker was accused of raping a 18-year-old classmate in his apartment. Although he was cleared of charges, »
