Icons of Fright Interview with 7 Minutes Director Jay Martin!

2 July 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Having started his career as both a music video director (his video for Atreyu’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” is a fave of mine) and a storyboard artist on films like Amazing Spiderman 2 and Constantine, Jay Martin’s directorial feature debut 7 Minutes is a heist gone wrong film full of tension and suspense. Dealing with jumping timelines, and a lot of energy, the Jason Ritter, Luke Mitchell and Zane Holtz-led crime thriller is now in theaters and is one wild ride.

Martin was nice enough to chat with Icons of Fright about his inspiration with the film, the transition of going from music videos to films and some awesome wardrobe choices for Zane Holtz’s character in the film. Read on!

 

I have always been interested in the heist gone wrong kinds of films, like Dog Day Afternoon. Those are my favorite movies, so your movie had me at the very beginning. »

Blu-ray Review – Blackhat (2015)

22 June 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blackhat, 2015.

Directed by Michael Mann.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tang Wei, Viola DavisHolt McCallany and Wang Leehom.

Synopsis:

After a Hong Kong nuclear plant and the Mercantile Trade Exchange in Chicago are hacked by unknown perpetrators, a federal agent  proposes that the FBI work with China to find the cyber-criminals. The leader of the Chinese team, Chen Dawai, insists that convicted hacker Nick Hathaway be released from prison to help with the investigation. As Nick and his comrades chase their quarry, it becomes evident that the hackers have a sinister motive for their actions.

How can I put this.

I found my discovery that the Blu-ray itself was transparent far more interesting than anything its contents had to offer. That sums it really.

Can this really be from the same director who gave us Heat and Collateral? Those films were taut and powerful with fantastic performances. This however is barely coherent and worst of all… »

‘Blackhat’ Blu-ray Review

19 June 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Leehom Wang, Wei Tang, Viola Davis, Holt McCallany | Written by Morgan Davis Foehl | Directed by Michael Mann

About an hour into my viewing of Blackhat I was struggling to remain conscious from boredom. About an hour later I was glued to my seat, my eyes and ears on full alert for whatever the film was going to throw at me next. So you’ll understand when I say I have considerably mixed feelings about crime maestro Michael Mann’s latest film. It’s his first since 2009′s Public Enemies, a film the subject of which (John Dillinger’s battle against the authorities in the 1920s) I was intrigued by but was severely ill-served by its amateurish and distracting digital handicam cinematography.

While that film disappointed after the electric promise of Collateral (I didn’t catch Miami Vice, perhaps luckily), my expectations were set lower for Blackhat, a »

Skydance Plans Bermuda Triangle Film

17 June 2015 9:09 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Skydance Productions is reportedly developing a film based on the legendary and mysterious Caribbean area of the Bermuda Triangle.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard ("Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice") are rewriting an original screenplay by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's "Friday the 13th").

Running between the Florida Straits, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, the inexplicable disappearances of planes and ships in the area over the years have been rumored to be due to paranormal or extraterrestrial causes.

The area is hot right now for filmmakers as both Universal and Warner Bros. Pictures are also developing movies about the area. "Ouija" screenwriters Juliet Snowden and Stiles White are presently rewriting the script for the Universal version. There's also another version penned by Dan Kunka which is sitting at Warners and which Charles Roven is slated to produce.

100 Essential Action Scenes: Shootouts

2 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Shootouts, unlike any other type of action scenes, put death in the forefront of the audience’s mind. Whereas a car chase draws the attention onto the race, or a fight scene onto the pursuit of victory, shootouts test the mortality of our protagonists and anti-heroes. It’s more than just a hail of bullets that matters on screen, it’s who those bullets are clipping down or propping up. Legends can be made in a flurry of lead. The last man standing after the fray isn’t always the best or »

Movie Review – The Connection (2014)

27 May 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Connection (a.k.a. La French), 2014.

Directed by Cédric Jimenez

Starring Jean Dujardin, Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, Mélanie Doutey, Guillaume Gouix, Benoît Magimel, Bruno Todeschini, Moussa Maaskri and Féodor Atkine.

Synopsis:

A French police magistrate spends years trying to take down one of the country’s most powerful drug rings.

If La French succeeds at anything it is in helping prove the fact that it doesn’t matter where a film is shot or in which language it is spoken, nothing can pull the emotional impact out of a story like over-familiarity. And this isn’t in due in any significant part to the drug kingpin take-down story which audiences already know from William Friedkin’s 1971 masterpiece The French Connection, but rather from the same well-trodden plot points and characters we’ve seen countless times before.

Cédric Jimenez’s film certainly has all checkpoints covered on a surface level »

First Photo of Danny Trejo in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series

26 May 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Throughout his career, Danny Trejo's played a wide range of intimidating characters that steal scenes with their powerful presences, and his upcoming role as The Regulator in Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series looks to be no exception.

New poster and trailer for Manglehorn starring Al Pacino

16 May 2015 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A poster and trailer have debuted for Manglehorn, the new film starring Al Pacino (Heat), which you can see right here…

Reclusive small town locksmith Angelo Manglehorn has never quite recovered from losing the love of his life, Clara. Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him and prefers to find comfort in his work and daily routine. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son, taking misplaced pride in a former protégé gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kindhearted woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between remaining consumed by the past and embracing the present. Manglehorn is a movingly humanistic portrait of a man rendered with unsentimental simplicity and idiosyncratic humor.

Directed by David Gordon Green (Joe, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Heists

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Hollywood has had a long love affair with the heist sub-genre. Dating as far back as the silent film era with 1928’s Alias Jimmy Valentine, and transcending various genres like westerns (The War Wagon), war (Kelly’s Heroes) and even animation (Toy Story 3), the heist has tantalized our fantasies and outsmarted our wits for decades. Whether it’s for the very last time before retirement, gathering the gang back together for a big payday or for the thrill of pulling off the perfect robbery, all heist films share one key element: commitment to a plan. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Corporate Greed Is Bad for Your Health and for the Health of Democracy

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences. What Freedom of the Press? Based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article about the events that led up to that embarrassing – and disturbing – incident, The Insider tells the story of scientist Jeffrey Wigand »

'The Connection' (2015) Movie Review

11 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In so many ways The Connection (La French) feels like a film Michael Mann would have made with its dedication to intense action sequences, shot with immediacy and edits that give the viewer an understanding of the space within which the characters are interacting. And, like Mann, director Cedric Jimenez doesn't forgo character, understanding even the small moments between husband and wife, father and son, are important in a crime epic, allowing us to get to know the characters on a more personal level, getting to know them as people rather than just as cop and criminal. Described as a "European flipside to William Friedkin's The French Connection", The Connection is much more than a marketing blurb intent on piquing the interest of hard-to-attract general audience members. This is a down-and-dirty '70s crime thriller, with all the texture of the 35mm film it was shot on. In fact, »

Tom Hardy Lining Up Mystery DC Project

11 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Tom Hardy has dropped some hints with the guys over at Collider that he has a secret DC project under development with Warner Bros. From the scale he's talking about it sounds like a big-budget marquee project, but apart from that we know little else. "I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros which is also a comic book it's a DC thing which is kind of...it's really good actually, it contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean's Eleven to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, technicolor, Pulp Fiction...it's a psychological fuckfest, it's absolutely awesome." Hardy went on to say that it has a Transmetropolitan vibe but is more grounded in reality, and compared it to Michael Mann's Heat. Hardy then went on to discuss the potential for layering the story across multiple platforms, saying »

Tom Hardy Working With DC Again… But On What?

10 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having braved a fearsome post-apocalyptic landscape for Mad Max: Fury Road, you couldn’t blame Tom Hardy for wanting to lighten the mood. He’s been in mischievous mode for a recent interview, revealing his involvement in a certain something from the world of Detective Comics.

If you’re looking for more detail, well you’re not going to get it. However Hardy has done a great job of ramping up expectation as you’ll see from the quote below:

(It) contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean’s Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, Technicolor, Pulp Fiction… It’s a psychological f—fest… as if you would take Transmetropolitan (the cyberpunk range by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson) and make it happen, but it’s not that out there it’s something which is much more real world. »

Name Composers Not Above Getting the Boot

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a brief stir in January when composer Harry Gregson-Williams publicly expressed, via Facebook, his surprise at hearing music he didn’t recognize at the premiere of Michael Mann’s thriller “Blackhat” — and at not hearing a lot of score he did write.

The composer says his Facebook post has been blown out of proportion, but admits it was disappointing to see music he toiled over dropped (or replaced) in the final cut. But, he stresses, that’s just part of the game.

“You win some, you lose some,” he says, relaying his early mentor Hans Zimmer’s comment that you haven’t made it as a film composer until you’ve had a score rejected.

Gregson-Williams is simply the latest in a long line of composers who’ve watched scores tossed out and replaced whole-cloth, partially substituted by pre-existing tracks, or mangled beyond recognition. Mann is notorious for »

Chris Hemsworth Had No Idea 'What the Hell Was Going on' in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

29 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we were on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" last summer, we watched Chris Hemsworth shoot a scene set in Avengers Tower, where he has a chat with The Vision, the new, purplish robo-god introduced in the third act of the highly anticipated sequel. The Vision (played by Paul Bettany) looked cool and imposing, every square inch of his skin covered in prosthetics, but Hemsworth? Well, Hemsworth was Thor. In between takes he chatted with his stunt double, a burly man who throws the hammer when the megawatt star is unable, and it became clear, after a few minutes, that Hemsworth was bigger than his stunt double. Truly, he is an Asgardian king.

And in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," you get to remember why you liked Thor so much in the first place, after the dreary sequel "Thor: The Dark World." Thor is funny again, with Hemsworth's comic »
