Patriots Day Trailer Offers Mark Wahlberg As Focal Point

5 October 2016 2:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Some may wonder exactly what the story is behind Patriots Day, the Peter Berg film about the Boston Marathon bombing, and while the trailer is heavy on showcasing the drama of the event, and making sure you see the people starring in it, it does give you a little glimpse of Mark Wahlberg‘s character.

It looks as though we are going into the lives of some of the figures associated with the rescue/relief effort and the hunt for the bombers.

The crossing guard remark might not be what I chose to highlight in the trailer, but this is clearly a look at the film that isn’t after revealing too much, so there might not have been much to work with.

Either way, this is one to watch for, and has a cast that should be able to give us something compelling, especially with John Goodman and J.K. Simmons involved in key roles. »

New to Streaming: ‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘The Innocents,’ ‘Complete Unknown,’ ‘Steve Jobs,’ and More

30 September 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Complete Unknown (Joshua Marston)

Armed with two top-notch leads and a compelling premise, Joshua Marston‘s third feature, Complete Unknown, spends a lot of time hinting at which direction it will go, without going anywhere at all. Tom (Michael Shannon) is living with his wife Rehema (Azita Ghanizada) in New York City, spending the majority of his days drafting agricultural policy emails in a cramped government office. It is »

Cannes 2016: The Last Face Review

20 May 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

  Sean Penn’s career shift to directing won him plaudits at the Venice Film Festival over twenty years ago with The Crossing Guard. Since then, he has been a solid if sporadic filmmaker. Unfortunately, The Last Face is not so much solid as a soggy mess. Charlize Theron plays Wren, the director of her dead […]

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Last Face’

20 May 2016 3:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Last year, “Beasts of No Nation” told a story of mutilated innocence in an unnamed African hell zone, but it didn’t feel compelled to add a token white hero (the caring photojournalist! the conflicted U.N. peacekeeper!) for the audience to identify with. “The Last Face,” an endless, logy cataclysm of a war-torn political drama directed by Sean Penn, goes right back to the look!-here-are-some-movie-stars-in-the-maelstrom paradigm. The film is set in some of the most blood-soaked territories of Africa – South Sudan, the Sierra Leone, Liberia — and it’s full of jaggedly edited sequences in which children lie on operating tables with their chests blown open, corpses appear in fly-buzzing piles and homemade bombs and machine-gun fire explode out of nowhere at deafening volume. At the front and center, though, are two characters who are in the crisis but not of it: Charlize Theron as Wren Petersen, a globe-trotting physician and activist, »

Vilmos Zsigmond, Oscar-Winning Cinematographer, Dies at 85

3 January 2016 10:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hungarian-born cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, winner of an Oscar for his achievements on “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and a nominee for “The Deer Hunter,” “The River” (1984) and the “The Black Dahlia” (2006), has died at 85. His business partner Yuri Neyman said he died January 1.

Over a period of five decades in Hollywood, his other outstanding achievements included “Deliverance,” “Blow Out,” “The Ghost and the Darkness” and such Robert Altman films as “McCabe and Mrs. Miller” and “The Long Goodbye.” And he considered it the ultimate compliment that no two of his movies looked alike.

Working into his eighties, Zsigmond also shot a number of episodes of the Fox sitcom “The Mindy Project” from 2012-14. Zsigmond ranked among the 10 most influential cinematographers in film history in a 2003 survey conducted by the International Cinematographers Guild.

Belying his comment to Rolling Stone that “a cinematographer can only be as good as the director, »
