Six reclusive New York brothers recreated The Dark Knight - and it's incredible

20 August 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

New documentary The Wolfpack explores the incredible story of the Angulo family, whose seven children found themselves locked away in a Manhattan apartment for 14 years.

Cut away from the outside world, the six brothers escaped through cinema, learning about the world outside through movies and even recreating them on-camera with transcribed scripts and homemade costumes.

As well as Quentin Tarantino films Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, the Angulos were huge fans of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy.

Watch the clip above to see a Diy batsuit made of cereal boxes and the Angulos' recreation of this iconic Dark Knight scene.

Crystal Moselle is behind the camera for The Wolfpack, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

You can catch The Wolfpack - complete with Diy Tarantino, The Usual Suspects and Nightmare on Elm Street - in UK cinemas from tomorrow (August 21). »

You're Old: 'The Usual Suspects' Came Out 20 Years Ago

18 August 2015 6:45 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It's been two decades since cinema's most famous police lineup sent viewers down a twisty rabbit hole in pursuit of someone named "Keyser Soze," and movies have never been the same. Yes, The Usual Suspects was released 20 years ago this week, and if you remember seeing it in theaters in 1995, brace yourself for a surprise twist: You're Old®. Though it was released near the end of the summer, the movie first saw the light of day the previous January at the Sundance Film Festival. Bryan Singer was a distinguished alumnus of the fest, his Public Access having shared the Grand Jury Prize two years earlier. Despite that honor, Public Access never got theatrical distribution, and the bare-bones DVD (released after Singer got famous) is now out of print. But it...

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

18 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Twenty years ago today, Bryan Singer, the director of the “good X-Men movies” (read: all of them except X3), and writer Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue One) rounded up five thieves for the heist of the 90’s. It all starts out with a seemingly harmless lineup, but Keyser Söze – bogeyman of the criminal underworld – has very specific (and sinister) plans for The Usual SuspectsDean Keaton (Gabriel Byrne), McManus (Stephen Baldwin), Fenster (Benicio del Toro), Hockney (Kevin Pollak), and Verbal Kint (Kevin Spacey).  Bonus points to Singer for casting Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”’s Gus Fring), who looks ridiculously young as one of the FBI agents after Keyser Söze.

From pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers, here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

'The Usual Suspects': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About This Modern Classic

15 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who is Keyser Soze?

20 years ago this week (August 16, 1995), audiences uncovered the answer to that question -- and they're still reeling from it two decades later.

"The Usual Suspects" is an intricately plotted crime thriller that, despite the big twist at the end, never feels convoluted but rather like a puzzle we're putting together along with its nefarious main characters -- B-level criminals who find themselves under the shadow (and gun) of the crime lord equivalent of the devil incarnate.

The film won Kevin Spacey and writer Christopher McQuarrie ("Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation") Oscars, and put director Bryan Singer on the path to make the "X-Men" films. In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, here are 20 facts you need to know about this modern classic.

1. Writer Chris McQuarrie got the title for his film from an article in Spy Magazine.

2. The film's most iconic image -- the titular characters »

Kevin Pollak Calls Chuck Lorre Killing Him Off on ‘Mom’ a ‘Bizarro World Honor’

10 August 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kevin Pollak on Monday addressed the killing off of his recurring “Mom” character, Alvin, calling the death-by-Chuck Lorre “a bizzaro world honor.” “As a character actor, the opportunity to do all sorts of things is a blessing and a curse,” Pollak told reporters during the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour panel for his new CBS sitcom “Angel From Hell.” “‘A Few Good Men,’ ‘The Usual Suspects,’ ‘Casino’ — that little three-year run wiped out 15 years of stand-up comedy and a couple HBO specials. However people discover you is how they know you.” He recalled drifting so far from his humorous roots. »

Alex Reviews Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation – How Is The Franchise Still This Much Fun?

3 August 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Rating: ★★★★

Mission: Impossible is the series that everyone pretends The Fast And The Furious is. An unstoppable run of adrenaline-pumping thrill rides with increasingly bonkers stunts that fly in the face of the notion of diminishing returns, it would be a guilty pleasure if people weren’t so unashamed to show love for Scientology mouthpiece Tom Cruise. And now we’ve got a fifth entry, subtitle Rogue Nation, which somehow sits as the second best entry so far (behind the 1996 original).

Every time a new film comes along to faux-unexpected praise, everyone asks the same question; “How is the franchise still so good?” While it is certainly impressive that five movies in the M:i series has only gone from strength to strength, with only one truly questionable entry (and even then John Woo’s first sequel still has its redeemable elements), it’s not exactly hard to grasp why it continues to work. »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Rogue Nation,’ Not Reshooting His Ending & More Tom Cruise Collaborations

1 August 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Writer/director Christopher McQuarrie might see himself as one of the luckiest men on the planet. The screenwriter won an Academy Award for his second produced screenplay (“The Usual Suspects”) and that launched him into directing. But his first feature, “The Way Of The Gun,” was a box office flop and in McQuarrie’s own words landed him into “director’s jail” for about twelve years. While projects developed in the interim, McQuarrie wouldn’t land another credit until 2008 for “Valkyrie” starring Tom Cruise. But before the film was made, it seemed as if Cruise had kept the faith, and in 2007 the trades reported that McQuarrie would tailor several screenplays that the superstar actor was considering. All of them he liked, but he had handpicked McQuarrie to bring them up to snuff. “Valkyrie” was one of the few projects of that time that Cruise actually made, and the actor and »

Movie Review – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)

31 July 2015 12:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, 2015.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

Starring Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, Sean Harris and Alec Baldwin.

Synopsis:

Ethan and team take on their most impossible mission yet, eradicating the Syndicate – an International rogue organization as highly skilled as they are, committed to destroying the Imf.

Yes, that’s Tom Cruise running on the wing of a cargo plane as it speeds down a runway. Yes, that’s still Cruise hanging from the side of the plane as it’s taking off. And yes, that’s our Tom hanging on the plane at 5000 feet. Why? Simple – because Cruise commits. Cruise delivers. Cruise knows what we want and knows how to get the best from everyone he works with to ensure we get it. He only works with the best, because only the best is good enough. Far too often we have to settle »

MI5 Review: Cruise Shows Why After All These Years He Remains a Movie Superstar

30 July 2015 10:58 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise. 'Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation': Tom Cruise, the last action hero There are two impossible missions in the latest Mission: Impossible. The first involves Chechen terrorists, political assassinations, the Vienna Opera House, and a car that unlocks when the user places his hand on the driver's side window (Detroit, get on that). The other impossible mission, one that is not only accepted and completed, but conquered and victoriously ground into dust, is proving that 53-year old Tom Cruise is still an action star. As Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation demonstrates with cruel ease, Cruise isn't just an action hero. In the post-movie star age, he is, with apologies to a certain Austrian bodybuilder whose drawing power is all but terminated, the last action hero. What makes him thus is not just his supreme confidence, compact good looks, and million dollar smile. The camera has »

Movie Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

30 July 2015 9:25 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

If you’ve seen any of the marketing for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, you’ve almost certainly seen the image of Tom Cruise gripping the side of a jet plane as it takes off. The outrageous stunt is real, and the laws of modern movie marketing would seem to dictate that this could well be the money shot for the whole movie. So there’s a certain refreshing pleasure in sitting down to watch the film and finding that the plane stunt happens right in the opening sequence. If the trailer’s big wowza moment is just table setting, what could the filmmakers have in store for the final showdown? The answer, as it turns out, is plenty, but also not quite enough. This Mission: Impossible is a remarkably fun and clever continuation of the franchise, but also occasionally frustrating in the way it fails to live up to its own standards. »

Tom Cruise wants to reunite with Emily Blunt for an Edge of Tomorrow sequel

29 July 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The story of a military officer who is brought into an alien war with the power to reset the day was a cool concept, and when you threw director Doug Liman (Mr. And Mrs. Smith), writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and Tom Cruise into the mix, it seemed like a no-brainer. As we all know, the film didn't exactly sweep up at the box office (domestically), but it is widely considered to be one... Read More »

‘Mission: Impossible’ – Breaking Christopher McQuarrie out of Director’s Jail

27 July 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation will be released. It’s the fifth film in the iconic franchise, but sadly stands as only the third film of its director Christopher McQuarrie in 15 years since he got behind the camera. That’s a real shame, because Christopher McQuarrie is Hollywood’s best-kept secret when he really should be their pride and joy.

Christopher McQuarrie was so damn hot in the mid-90s. He wrote the script for the classic The Usual Suspects and came home with an Oscar. He ended up using that clout to get his feature-directing debut made with the criminally underrated The Way of the Gun, released in 2000. The film failed both critically and commercially – a domestic gross of $6 million, and a worldwide gross of only $13 million against a $21 million budget – and McQuarrie went from insider to outcast in Hollywood.

Fast forward eight years and McQuarrie had only »
