Frank & Lola Review

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are numerous surprises waiting in Frank & Lola, Matthew Ross’ lurid psycho-thriller, not least of which is the way the director utilizes his actors. Ross, a first-time feature filmmaker who arrives here confidently, casts the oft-menacing Michael Shannon, playing hot-shot Las Vegas chef Frank, as a smoldering romantic lead-cum-action man. Meanwhile, frequent manic pixie dream girl Imogen Poots, playing Frank’s girlfriend Lola, is positioned as a femme fatale. We expect one actor to bring the edge, and it turns out that where he has a warped everyman quality here, it’s she who adds the element of unpredictability.

Frank and Lola’s relationship begins charmingly enough. Recalling a time when American movies were more playful with their editing, the director cuts back and forth in the timeline of their courtship, encapsulating months in minutes during one delightful early sequence. Frank makes Lola a luxurious omelette and takes her on a drive round Vegas, »

Alfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma’s Films Get Side-by-Side Comparison in Video Essay – Watch

7 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alfred Hitchcock and Brian De Palma are two iconic directors that have made incredible films that are cemented in cinema history. It’s no secret that the “Carrie” helmer is a big fan of Hitchcock and over the years has used his work as source of inspiration.

In a new video essay by director and writer Peet Gelderblom, titled “Hitchcock & De Palma: Split Screen Bloodbath,” the filmmaker shows a side-by-side of Hitchcock’s “Psycho” compared to scenes from De Palma’s filmography. As we take a closer look, it’s easy to see that De Palma’s work is not an exact imitation, rather an homage to Hitchcock, re-envisioned in his own special way.

Among De Palma’s features that are used in the comparison are “Passion,” “Femme Fatale,” “Carrie,” “Phantom of the Paradise,” “Mission: Impossible” and “Dressed to Kill,” among others.

7 December 2016 10:14 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On Tuesday night’s episode of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” the host decided to make an aspiring screenwriter’s dream come true. In a sketch called “Starbucks Theater,” Corden headed to a local Starbucks to find the next best Hollywood script, produce it and film it on location.

“Our show is filmed in Los Angeles and in Los Angeles, every single coffee shop is full of aspiring writers on their laptops trying to to churn out the next great Hollywood screenplay,” he began. “But we thought, why wait for Hollywood when we can find and produce one of these scripts inside a local Starbucks.”

What Is the Best TV Theme Song for a Show Airing in 2016? — IndieWire Critics Survey

6 December 2016 8:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best TV theme song for a current show that aired in 2016?

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), HitFix

If we’re talking pre-existing theme songs of shows that aired in 2016, then the obvious choice for me is “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” whose funky ’70s cop show riff often provides the biggest joy I get out of my viewing week, especially when paired with all those great visuals (Gina dancing, Charles injuring himself). In terms of theme songs brand new to this year, I go with one that I actually had to make an effort to watch with each episode: “Luke Cage.” Another ’70s throwback, it perfectly sets the mood for everything that follows, »

Can we have more of Tom Cruise the actor please?

6 December 2016 7:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Dec 8, 2016

Tom Cruise continues to deliver in blockbuster movies: but it can't just be us who'd love to see him making a few more leftfield choices.

Over the weekend, we got the release of the trailer for 2017’s The Mummy movie. In it, as many were quick to point out, Tom Cruise is soon running again. Few actors run with the speed and intensity of Tom Cruise on the big screen, and few actors seem committed to the productions they take on in the manner that Cruise is. Whenever we’ve interviewed anyone to do with a Tom Cruise movie, they all volunteer just how far the man goes out of his way to have a chat, make them feel settled, and make them feel part of things.

‘Dunkirk’: Seven Minutes From Christopher Nolan’s WWII Epic To Screen Before ‘Rogue One’ In 70mm IMAX

5 December 2016 2:53 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Whenever Christopher Nolan has a summer blockbuster on the horizon, Warner Brothers often finds a way to screen select IMAX footage ahead of the year’s big Christmas blockbuster. Fans got to see some of the first footage from “The Dark Knight” before “I Am Legend” back in 2007, while “The Dark Knight Rises” opening airplane sequence was screened before “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” four years later. It looks like Warner Bros. is keeping with tradition, as seven minutes of Nolan’s “Dunkirk” will be attached to select “Rogue One” screenings.

As reported by /Film earlier today, the seven-minute long “Dunkirk” prologue will screen ahead of the “Star Wars” blockbuster at 70mm IMAX locations in 2D. The bad news is that means it will only be showing in a handful of theaters across the country. Cinephiles in Los Angeles, »

Monsters And Magic Reign Supreme In New Featurette For The Mummy

5 December 2016 12:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Heralding a whole new world of gods and monsters, Alex Kurtzman’s star-studded redo of The Mummy has sparked conversation across the four corners of the Internet following Sunday’s trailer reveal.

Kurtzman, who has been appointed at the helm of Universal’s embryonic monsters universe alongside producer Chris Morgan, has drafted in some serious star power for the reboot as well, with Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis on board to lead the charge against Sofia Boutella’s all-powerful deity.

Thought to be safely entombed in a crypt far, far from any civilization, Sunday’s teaser trailer showcased Boutella’s former queen receiving a crude awakening while being transported on a military jet. Things don’t exactly go according to plan, however, and without spoiling too much, the intense action scene that follows wouldn’t look out of place in the Mission: Impossible franchise.

5 December 2016 9:11 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Tom Cruise has been a part of some huge, seminal movies. Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Mission: Impossible, War of The Worlds, and Minority Report to name a few. According to director Alex Kurtzman, Cruise thinks The Mummy is bigger than all of those.

Film Review: ‘Sky on Fire’

4 December 2016 9:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly three decades after making his international breakthrough with “City on Fire” — the 1987 cult-fave cops-and-robbers opus that Quentin Tarantino brazenly referenced in “Reservoir Dogs” — Hong Kong auteur Ringo Lam returns to his roots with “Sky on Fire,” a similarly titled non-sequel that, at its infrequent best, plays like a highlight reel culled from the greatest hits of a bygone era. Specifically, this new film recalls that brief but shining heyday when Lam, John Woo, Tsui Hark, and other Hong Kong directors more or less remade action cinema as an exhilarating mashup of operatic passions, automatic weapons, and blow-’em-up, smack-’em-down mayhem.

Unfortunately, that isn’t quite the same thing as being a terrific movie, or even a very good one, that stands on its own merits. Truth to tell, the first half of “Sky on Fire” is more confusing than exciting, as Lam, working from his own screenplay, demands »
