Lee Evans has revealed that he has no plans to return to Hollywood, describing his experience of working in movies in the '90s as "terrible" and "lonely".
In an interview with Phill Jupitus on the behalf of Digital Spy, Evans spoke candidly about his time in the Us, when he starred in movies such as The Fifth Element, MouseHunt and There's Something About Mary.
"It was terrible," said Evans. "It was really lonely. I lived there for two years.
"I learnt a lot - I would never trade that for anything - but on a personal level, I really missed my wife and daughter.
"If I ever went back. I'd have to go in and get straight out."
Evans was coy when asked whether it was true that he turned down a movie offer from Martin Scorsese, revealing that he did speak with the iconic director at a three-hour meeting in a London hotel. »
There's nothing like taking a classic Christmas carol and making it as violent as possible. If it wasn't enough to endure the endless faux holiday cheer that the stores put on every year, complete with terrible puns and holiday song remixes, 20th Century Fox wants to make it that much more unbearable. The studio has delivered a new version of the "12 Days of Christmas" but they've decided to give it some Taken 3 flare and make it all about Bryan Mills' special skills. There's clever lines like "11 throats a chopping," which doesn't make sense, because the throats aren't doing any chopping at all. Just watch and shake your head below. Here's the "12 Skills of Christmas" inspired by Taken 3 from 20th Century Fox: You can still watch the first trailer for Olivier Megaton's Taken 3 right here. Taken 3 is directed by Olivier Megaton (Taken 2) and written by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, »

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?
Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.
1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr
David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.
2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG
The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

I had the remarkable pleasure of interviewing Dan Lemmon, who is a visual effects supervisor for the world renowned special effects company—Weta Workshop--out of New Zealand. You might have heard of that company? Mr. Lemmon has been working on special effects since The Fifth Element (1995) and has worked with effects teams to put together some of the most awe inspiring scenes in film for nearly 20 years. Everything from Titanic to Avatar—both of them the top two highest grossing films of all time. To the recent reboots of the Planet of the Apes films, from ‘Rise’ to ‘Dawn’. He supervised the visual effects team that brought Superman back to life in Man of Steel and has even worked on films such as Peter Jackson's reboot of King Kong; he's also supervised visual effects for films such as I, Robot, and even a horror entry with 30 Days of Night. »

This is an abbreviated version of our Movies This Week roundup because there will be some turnover at area theaters on as we head into the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I'll be back with an early post on Wednesday to let you know about what will be changing. In the meantime, here's a quick look at what is on tap for this weekend and early next week.
At Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, they are continuing on with 70mm screenings of Interstellar, but those are currently only confirmed through Tuesday night. It's possible that it will keep playing, but if you've been meaning to catch it there on film, you may want to squeeze it in this weekend. The Ritz has added a Saturday afternoon matinee of Florian Habicht's outstanding documentary Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets. They've also got a Mad Max trilogy marathon on Sunday and Monday »

When we’re talking about ultime movie marathons (or binge-watching these days), and the resurgence of high quality science fiction films on the market, it’s nearly impossible for me to not recommend some amazing space adventures for your next binge-watching session.
Each month the Cinelinx staff will write a handful of articles covering a specified film-related topic. These articles will be notified by the Movielinx banner. Movielinx is an exploration and discussion of our personal connections with film. This month, we're picking our favorite films for binge watching. We'll suggest a theme and the four movies we think would be most enjoyable to watch back-to-back while being related to this theme.
Science fiction has always been one of my favorite genres, and while many different films can claim to have elements rooted in the genre, nothing is as exciting to me to watch, as space-faring adventures. Something about exploring new worlds, »

Warning: Major 'Interstellar' spoilers lie ahead! Interstellar is the most and least confusing movie that Christopher Nolan has ever made. The most confusing, because the spacefaring odyssey takes the filmmaker's usual Rubik's-cube narrative structure and blends in a hearty dose of upper-level astrophysics. Some of the astrophysics is real; all of it is really confusing. But Interstellar is also the most straightforward story of Nolan's career—more emotionally clear-cut than the story-within-a-story nesting-doll epics The Prestige and Inception, and unencumbered by the globo-metropolitan sociopolitics of his Dark Knight trilogy. Spoilers from here—but if you feel like you »

Classic high-octane car chase thriller Taxi, created by renowned writer/director/producer Luc Besson, is cult action comedy about a speed freak taxi driver who is forced to make a deal with the police or lose his licence. The film has spawned three sequels, an American remake and a TV series which has sadly not found a UK broadcaster as yet. Now the original film, which introduced the world to high speed car chases and gallic action, hits Blu-ray courtesy of Second Sight, in a new high-def transfer that makes the film look as fresh and exciting today as it did on its debut in 1998.
Like a lot of more modern Besson movies, the plot of Taxi is relatively simple: »

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is hoping to join Guardians of the Galaxy, another space-related film, at the top of the box office after it opens Nov. 5 and could garner a best picture Oscar nomination. In the trailer, Matthew McConaughey‘s character says, “We used to look up in the sky and wonder at our place in the stars; now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt,” so one wonders how often the Academy looks skyward for best picture nominees and if voting members have set a precedent for space films to do well at the Oscars. Though many of the voting members came of age when President John F. Kennedy said we were going to put the first man on the moon, only six space-related films have been nominated for best picture: Gravity (2013), District 9 (2009), Avatar (2009), Apollo 13 (1995), The Right Stuff »

The Austin Film Society's "Art Horror" series is wrapping up appropriately here over Halloween weekend with Hausu, a 1977 Japanese horror film directed by Nobuhiko Obayshi. Screening this evening and again on Sunday afternoon in 35mm at the Marchesa, I can guarantee that you've never seen anything like it before. I suspect that this will attract a lot of people who have seen the movie many times before, but catching it on the big screen for the first time is something I can highly recommend. In a much different vein, Philippe Garrel's Jealousy is on the calendar for Sunday and Monday evenings. This new black-and-white French drama stars Philippe's son Louis Garrel. The latest "Essential Cinema" series spotlighting the work of Satyajit Ray comes to a close on Thursday night with 1979's Joi Baba Felunath (The Elephant God).
At the Alamo Drafthouse, John Carpenter's Halloween will screen late tonight at the Lakeline, »

Who would've thought it would be Best Buy bringing us awesome DVD covers? It is our general policy to skip most DVD/Blu-ray news, however this time I'm making an exception because this artwork is fantastic and I need to pay some compliments to whoever came up with this. A new promo called Project Pop Art has been announced involving Sony re-releasing 16 cult movie hits on Blu-ray this November. Each Steelbook Blu-ray is wrapped in gorgeous pop art from designers all over the world curated by Gallery 1988. They've chosen a handful of bestseller hits including The Fifth Element, Superbad, District 9, Snatch, Taxi Driver, Das Boot, Stripes, even The Who movie Tommy. All of them turned out great - see below. While this artwork is from Gallery 1988, the actual Blu-rays can be pre-ordered directly from Best Buy and you can own these exactly as they look (which is pretty damn »

Directed by: Gabe Ibáñez
Following up 2009’s Hierro, Gabe Ibáñez goes from domestic to sci-fi mystery with Automata. Set in 2044 Ad, when solar storms turn Earth into a radio desert and reduces the human population, robots have become a staple for survival. A corporation called Roc, in particular, creates a line of robots called the Automata Pilgrim 7000s to assist humans in their quest for living, building the walls needed to protect mankind. Security protocols have been programmed to prevent robots from harming any form of life, and from altering themselves altogether. In this dark and dystopian future, plucked from a chapter of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner or Danny Cannon’s Judge Dredd, the audience follows Roc insurance investigator Jacq Vaucan (Antonio Banderas). Burnt out and pessimistic, »

It’s the premise of a classic short novel by a Shakespearian scholar and at least a half dozen EC Comics. What happens when beings based in a differing number of dimensions interact? Usually it’s the higher dimensions assaulting us, but if the invasion comes from the ground up, one would hope your defensive wall could be a…

A mysterious force is causing the dimensions in a council estate near Bristol to collapse, resulting in people vanishing, with only distended and partial projections left behind. The Tardis is affected by the distortion, and when it lands, the connection between the interior and exterior of the ship is…oddly affected. Reduced to half-size, and then smaller, The Doctor is trapped within the ship, leaving Clara as the one with boots on the ground to discover the source of the attack, save everyone, »

Ghost In The Shell 25th Anniversary Edition
Every genre has their classics, films that helped define a pivotal point, in which the tides turned and something was brought to audience that blew them away. The horror genre has the Night Of The Living Dead, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween‘s, the action genre has their Die Hard, Terminator 2‘s etc. When it comes to animated films that aren’t the Disney type, very few films stand out as much as the great Japanese classics such as Akira and one of my personal favorites, Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 masterpiece, Ghost In The Shell. Both films gave Japanese film animation such epic entries, that though often imitated, were never duplicated in quality. With Anchor Bay’s newly released 25th Anniversary (of the original manga’s release) Edition Bluray of Ghost In The Shell, I thought it would be fun to jump into it »

"I'm going to finish this." At the end of Taken 2, it seemed like Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) was on the path of getting back together with his ex-wife (Famke Janssen) and giving his daughter (Maggie Grace) the love he always wanted her to have. But in the first trailer for Taken 3 (or Tak3n if you want to be clever), we see that all that is cut short when Mills is framed for the murder of his ex-wife and is forced to go on the run from the law. Sadly, this time his special set of skills have him looking much more suspicious than heroic as he tries to prove his innocence and find out who is responsible for this tragedy. Watch the trailer! Here's the first trailer for Olivier Megaton's Taken 3 straight from 20th Century Fox: Taken 3 is directed by Olivier Megaton (Taken 2) and written by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, »

Originally slated for this past summer but suddenly pushed back only weeks away from release, nothing had been heard for a while about the Wachowskis' upcoming sci-fi epic "Jupiter Ascending." But that silence has ended. Today, a huge, nearly three-minute long trailer has dropped, and maybe your opinion will change once you watch it? Essentially Cinderella in space with lots more VFX and explosions, the film stars Channing Tatum as a bounty hunter tasked with taking down a lowly janitor playing by Mila Kunis. But the hunter changes his mind and finds himself protecting a young woman who turns out could be like, the Queen Of The Universe. Basically, the movie looks like the same thing that was sold to us earlier this year, with lots of very expensive looking set pieces, yet still feeling hokey and overstuffed. But if this film ends up evoking "The Fifth Element" style fun, »

Galleries like Mondo in Austin and Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles thrive because they offer movie and pop-culture lovers an irresistible combination of nostalgia and contemporary art. It’s artwork most people can afford that usually puts a unique spin on much-loved movies (and a few terrible films that people can’t get enough of). We’ve seen posters and prints of films like Pulp Fiction and The Fifth Element galore, but we haven’t seen those cult movies turned into… playing cards. “Fifty-two cards. Fifty-two of your favorite cult movies. An awesome deck of playing cards for people who love cinema as much as we do,” reads the website for Cult Movie Cards. After a successful Kickstarter, London-based creative...
