As it stands, if you want to divide a room by old dance music fans and new dance music fans, all you need to do is mention Underworld and see how many people know who you’re talking about. That might all change in 2016, though, because the British trio have announced their first album in over five years in the form of Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future.
Perhaps best known for “Born Slippy,” a track which would reach international audiences after landing in the soundtrack for the 1996 film Trainspotting, Underworld continued to release music up through 2010’s Barking before an extended silence left them in a shroud of obscurity through the Edm explosion of the past several years.
While a teaser of a handful of tracks from the effort doesn’t promise much in the way of updated sound design elements from the trio, perhaps it will reach »

Cinematographer Edward Lachman may not be a household name, though he undoubtedly should be. One of the most highly regarded directors of photography in the business, Lachman has collaborated with some of the best filmmakers of his generation: Steven Soderbergh, Todd Haynes, Todd Solondz, Paul Schrader, Sofia Coppola, Robert Altman, Werner Herzog, George Sluizer, Wim Wenders, Mira Nair, Ulrich Seidl, and Andrew Niccol — to name a handful.
His career began in 1975 by photographing the infamous Sylvester Stallone–Henry Winkler Brooklyn gang cult-fave, The Lords of Flatbush. In the last 40 years, he’s carved out a truly varied résumé. For example: in 2002, Lachman co-directed Ken Park with filmmaker Larry Clark, before moving onto direct the exercise video Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease in 2003.
Lachman’s most recent feature, Carol — his third partnership with Haynes, and perhaps his finest work — just entered a limited release, so there’s no better time to »

Robert Carlyle (The Legend of Barney Thomson) has praised the script for Danny Boyle’s (Steve Jobs) upcoming drama Trainspotting 2 in an interview with NME, calling it “one of the best scripts I’ve fucking read”.
The actor, who played Begbie in the original 1996 film, confirmed that the cast had an informal read-through of the script in the spring.
He called Danny Boyle the best director he had ever worked with and expressed confidence that Boyle could pull off a sequel to his beloved classic.
Carlyle said: “The way [writer] John Hodge has put this thing down, obviously with the help of Danny Boyle, is to make it about how the characters’ lives have moved on… or have they? Without giving anything away, maybe some of them haven’t really moved on. That’s what the »

It seems like this is the age where movies and TV shows from years past are returning, much to the glee of fans. From Star Wars and Wet Hot American Summer to The X-Files and now Trainspotting, the seemingly impossible remakes and sequels are real. And I couldn.t be more psyched. However, the question in these long-awaited sequels is, how exactly will the time jump, as well as how the actors have aged, be addressed? In a recent interview with nme.com, one of Trainspotting.s original stars Robert Carlyle (who has been starring in ABC.s Once Upon a Time) addresses this aspect of filmmaking. It turns out that the 20 year gap between each film will be utilized honestly. Carlyle says the characters will all age appropriately, and furthermore takes glee upon the age difference for the audience members. Carlyle goes on to elaborate more on the fate »
Danny Boyle recently revealed that his next project would be the sequel to Trainspotting, and now actor Robert Carlyle, who portrayed the ruthless Begbie in the 1996 cult classic, has revealed some enthusiastic details about the upcoming film. "You're going to think, 'Of course he's going to say this,' but honestly, it's one of the best scripts I've fucking read," Carlyle told NME of the sequel. "I mean, ever. What [screenwriter] John Hodge has done is just so clever."
Hodge previously penned the script for Trainspotting. The follow-up is based on »
Danny Boyle‘s next movie will be a return to the UK after current release Steve Jobs, which is enjoying its second weekend at the UK box-office. That return will be Trainspotting 2, which starts production next year. One of the actors returning for the movie is Robert Carlyle who has been heaping praise on screenwriter John Hodge‘s script.
He spoke with the NME.
“Yeah, we’ve already had a read-through of the script, we did that in the springtime. You’re going to think, ‘Of course he’s going to say this,’ but honestly, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve f**king read. I mean, ever. What John Hodge has done is just so clever.”
Hodge wrote the original 1996 screenplay, adapting from Irvine Welsh’s original novel. The new film will be loosely based on Welsh’s Porno. Carlyle, who plays Francis Begbie, elaborated on the story, »

According to JoBlo, Warner Bros. Pictures have a short list of possible frontrunners to helm the Guillermo del Toro-scripted "Justice League Dark" film adaptation. Del Toro wrote the recent screenplay with the desire to direct but decided to step down due to his commitment to helm "Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom", which is set up with Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures.
JoBlo revealed that the directing team of Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado and Fede Alvarez are in contention for the job. Keshales and Papushado are known in the horror genre for "Big Bad Wolves", "Rabies" and the anthology film "ABCs of Death 2." Alvarez directed 2013's "Evil Dead" remake, which was produced by original director Sam Raimi. Alvarez is currently in post-production on his latest film, "A Man in the Dark".
Latino-Review recently revealed the list of actors that Warner Bros. would like to cast in the film which includes »

It's taken quite some time, but the sequel to Trainspotting looks like it's ready to go. Ewan McGregor recently said that the film was almost 100% sure and all that remained to be worked out was the scheduling. Much of the old gang will return for the sequel which has Danny Boyle directing a script from original Trainspotting writer John Hodge. Robert Carlyle, who starred in... Read More »

Though he's mostly been doing television in recent years with series like "Stargate Universe" and "Once Upon a Time," actor Robert Carlyle has done more than his fair share of films over the years with one of his most defining roles still being the part of Begbie in the original 1996 Danny Boyle-directed "Trainspotting".
With work on that film's sequel about to get underway, Carlyle and the other three key members of the cast - Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ewan Bremner - are all expected back for the film which Boyle will once again direct. John Hodge has also returned to pen the script, and Carlyle recently spoke with the NME and had nothing but praise for both Hodge's work and Boyle:
"You're going to think, 'Of course he's going to say this,' but honestly, it's one of the best scripts I've f--ing read. I mean, ever. »

“You’re going to think, ‘Of course he’s going to say this,’ but honestly, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve f—ing read. I mean, ever,” Carlyle, who played Begbie in the original “Trainspotting,” said to NME in a recent interview.
“Trainspotting” director Danny Boyle will helm the sequel, and writer John Hodge returned to pen the script, which is said to be loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s “Trainspotting” follow-up novel “Porno.” In fact, the entire main cast of the original is expected to return, including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ewan Bremner.
“Obviously these four characters are 20 years older now and I’ve never seen a sequel that takes place 20 years after the original, so I think that gives it a certain unique quality,” Carlyle noted. “And the »

TBS has put in development Hype, a gritty half-hour comedy from Irvine Welsh, author of the novel Trainspotting, which was adapted into Danny Boyle’s 1996 cult movie. Welsh will write and executive produce the project, set in the world of the Miami art scene. Also executive producing are Trevor Engelson of Underground and Doug Banker of Five All In The Fifth Entertainment, who came up with the basic idea and pitched it to Welsh. A number of novels by Welsh have been… »
Since the 2007 release of 28 Weeks Later, the Rage virus has threatened to resurface on the big screen. Alex Garland recently mentioned that he had an idea for 28 Months Later that was being worked on by producer Andrew Macdonald, and now 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle is saying he wouldn't rule out a return to the franchise.
Speaking with IGN's Chris Tilly about his new biopic Steve Jobs, Boyle said that he would have "no hesitation" helming the third entry in the 28 series if it was unique enough from the previous films and also presented a similar "How are you going to direct that?" challenge of his Steve Jobs gig.
When asked about Garland's idea for 28 Months Later, a nugget of information that's currently under wraps, Boyle had this to say:
"But it’s a lovely idea. Because there’s been so many stories told since we did the first one »

After 23 studio releases, master filmmaker Ridley Scott begins each new project the exact same way. The iconic director, whose fall blockbuster “The Martian” has earned Scott his best reviews in years, still sits down and sketches out every single shot in his movies the old-fashioned way — on paper.
“I start quick on pencil and then I fill in with these gray felt tips with a fine felt tip. I do the whole film,” Scott says. “ ‘Black Hawk Down,’ that was a nightmare, 11 cameras. I’d do each fragment of what I wanted. There were three cameras in each corner. So, I would just put my head down and sketch, ‘This, this, this, this.’”
Scott’s approach appears to be consistent over the years, but many of his peers, such as Todd Haynes and Danny Boyle, have their own perspective on tackling new films. Haynes took on the directing duties of »

With Daniel Craig possibly looking to turn in his license to kill as 007 in the near future, many names have been bandied about as replacements. Yet there's one name that's found its way into the conversation again, after all of these years: McGregor, Ewan McGregor. The Scottish actor was interviewed at the Los Cabos Film Festival, their main concern was the recent movement on Danny Boyle's sequel to Trainspotting. As McGregor's name has been a recurring choice the role of the world's greatest super-spy, even after he'd previously turned down the offer, the actor took the mention in stride with the following remarks to The Hollywood Reporter: I think it would be quite cool to play James Bond. At this stage in my career (being typecast) is not really an issue anymore. Early on, when you start off you don't want your horizons to be narrow, but I think »
Just like most people, I've got a few gaps in my cinematic watch-list, one of which is Danny Boyle's Trainspotting. With a sequel to Trainspotting likely to arrive sooner rather than later, I'll have to make sure fill that gap by the time Trainspotting 2 rolls around. Ewan McGregor, who played Renton in the original film, spoke with THR and confirmed that the sequel is... Read More »

Steve Jobs is the second high-profile biopic of the computer pioneer brought to the silver screen in as many years. While the Ashton Kutcher version boasted an impressive cast that included Matthew Modine and future Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, it didn’t warm with the critics, and Kutcher even got himself a Razzie nomination for his role as the title character. It’s wasn’t very good; so why make another?
Michael Fassbender assumes the role in this very different movie, directed by British helmer Danny Boyle (Trainspotting), and written by the legendary Aaron Sorkin, who scripted The West Wing and the more recent The Newsroom, as well as the similarly themed tech-story-biopic, The Social Network. Rather than opting to do a straight biography from Walter Isaacson, the source »
