Week on week there so many ideas playing out in Wayward Pines, that the superficial framework of plot and structure seem effortless. By showing us behind the curtain producers have added a resonance which underpins these more fantastical elements, with natural character moments. Dillon’s Ethan Burke pulls off the same trick which DiCaprio did for Chris Nolan’s Inception. He continues to provide a solid central performance instilled with charisma, somehow making the improbable realistic. Over the course of this drama Dillon has had the opportunity, not afforded him since Drugstore Cowboy or Rumblefish, to remind us how good he can be. Criminally overlooked and experiencing a career resurgence, he more than holds his own against Jones and Leo who threaten to steal scenes elsewhere.
This subtlety, sureness of touch and assured sense of pace are in evidence throughout as »

For one weekend every year, film, TV, and comic book studios descend upon San Diego to present and preview some of their biggest and/or most exciting upcoming projects. Comic-Con is where Marvel first announced the title Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s where Zack Snyder took the stage to reveal that the Man of Steel follow-up would be a “Batman vs. Superman” movie, and it’s where Tom Hiddleston entered Hall H in character as Loki and bent thousands of people to his will. But Comic-Con is host to more than just panels previewing blockbusters. Last year David Fincher took part in a small panel looking back on Fight Club, and this year Joss Whedon gets the Hall H stage all to himself to do…something. With the Collider staff set to embark on our trip to San Diego next week where we’ll be bringing you recaps, interviews, »

There have been promises before that "Deadpool" will be a different breed of superhero movie, and that includes the film's rating. Star Ryan Reynolds has said in the past that the flick will be rated R, and now, producer Simon Kinberg is doubling down on that declaration.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, in which he also debuted a new "Deadpool" photo (see below), Kinberg said that audiences would not be disappointed in the colorful, foul-mouthed hero's onscreen representation.
"'Deadpool' is a hard R," Kinberg told EW. "It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't."
In fact, the flick is so dark that its director, Tim Miller (making his feature debut), linked it to a surprising source of inspiration.
"I felt 'Fight Club' and Tyler Durden were good corollaries," Miller told EW. "We are in »

While Wade Wilson.s film debut in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was tame (and unfaithful to his background), the same can.t be said for his return in Deadpool next year. As one of the few comic book movies to be rated R, the Merc With The Mouth.s spinoff isn.t holding back on the grittiness and violence commonly seen in the Deadpool comics (creator Rob Liefeld compared the film to a Quentin Tarantino project), and in order to pull off the right tone, director Tim Miller cites a well-known David Fincher film for inspiration. In an interview with EW, Miller, who designed the opening credits for Fincher.s 2011 film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, compared Deadpool.s various environments with 1998.s Fight Club and its most famous character. Said Miller: I felt Fight Club and Tyler Durden were good corollaries. We are in strip clubs and dive bars »
While X-Men: Apocalypse has already been confirmed as part of 20th Century Fox's epic Hall H panel on Saturday, July 11, we have not yet heard who else is participating in Comic Con 2015. Well, Ryan Reynolds is a safe bet. And he'll probably be bringing the very first official footage from Deadpool. Perhaps we'll even see the first trailer. To celebrate the impending event, we have a brand new look at the actor in costume, courtesy of EW. We also have three Funko Pop exclusives that will be available only at Comic Con in anticipation of this Marvel mutant spinoff. Folks who attend the panel might find themselves getting a little extra attention from Ryan Reynolds, who wants to plant a giant kiss on all the fans that made this possible. He expresses the following.
"And not just a little kiss, but full on the mouth, sloppy, with tongue, for two straight minutes on live television, »
Not to be outdone by his costumed comic book counterparts appearing all over the net today, Deadpool stars front and center in a new image from the Ryan Reynolds-starrer. It finds the Merc with a Mouth standing amidst some general chaos - a flipped car, a flailing pedestrian, Deadpool poised with guns drawn. It's a pretty standard action shot as far as these movies go, and lacks the humorous touch of what has been an excellent marketing campaign for the mercenary movie so far. That being said, Comic-Con is almost upon us and this image is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg for the 20th Century Fox property's push as it rolls out over the next six months or so. And if the film's rating was still in question, Deadpool producer Simon Kinberg answers it beautifully: “Deadpool is a hard R. It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. »

EW premiered the still and an accompanying article in which producer Simon Kinberg spoke about the film's tone: “Deadpool is a hard R. It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't.”
The film itself is slated to open February 12th next year. »

In addition to the image, EW has now posted an interview with both the movie's director Tim Miller and producer Simon Kinberg. “Deadpool is a hard R,” assures the latter. “It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.” Miller also reveals that he was influenced by a classic David Fincher movie when setting out to create a world that exists in the X-universe, but couldn't be more different at the same time. “I felt Fight Club and Tyler Durden were good corollaries,” he says. “We are in strip clubs and dive bars and crappy apartments and far away from the shiny X-Men world.” More at the link below. Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment »
Every now and again a movie trailer comes along that is all kinds of wrong for the movie it is trying to promote. This is a list of some of the worst head scratchers.
Just because a movie is good doesn’t necessarily mean that its trailer is as well. Many times the filmmakers responsible for the film itself don’t have much input (if any) into the trailer. When that happens, the trailer can end up misinterpreting the intent of the film. At other times, the trailer may try too hard to get audiences interested in the film, going so far as to show all the best parts from the film. This includes giving away the twists or the ending, such that people who may have watched the trailer before seeing the film already know how it ends. This is a look at some of the worst offenders, those »

Welcome to today's edition of Nerd Alert, where we have all the off-beat, nerdy news for you in one convenient spot. What do we have in store for you on this Funky Friday? An Ohio movie theater accidentally plays Insidious Chapter 3 instead of Inside Out, Chuck Palahniuk reads Fight Club for kids, Mark Wahlberg plays Head Shots with Jimmy Fallon and much more. We also have a crazy stop motion kung fu battle, Spaceballs Lego sets and a fan breaks the Seinfeld set. So, sit back, relax, and check out all that today's Nerd Alert has to offer.
Author Chuck Palahniuk has taken his beloved literary and cinematic classic Fight Club and turned it into a kids book... Although it's still not kid-friendly. The author hilariously tries to keep it clean, turning Fight Club into the "Horsing Around Club," but, eventually, he goes »
Promising new USA Network cyber-hacking drama Mr Robot may be a throwback to the late-nineties, but that's no bad thing...
This review contains spoilers.
Unusually for this genre, it’s not the tech that feels as if it belongs to another time, but the ideology. Episode one’s monologues on disaffection, alienation, phoneyism, economic anarchy and evil conglomerates are drenched in Fight Club, The Matrix and American Psycho-era cynicism.
With his raised black hoodie, vacant good looks, withdrawn demeanour and counselling sessions, Mr Robot’s lead Elliot Alderson (Malek) even channels the hero of another turn-of-the-last-century cult favourite: Donnie Darko. Moving even further down the timeline, casting Christian Slater as a co-lead almost certainly knowingly takes »
The Knopf Doubleday group returns to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con with a number of popular authors featured as panelists and appearing at booth #1520 during the show. Chuck Palahniuk is the New York Times bestselling author of 14 previous novels, including Fight Club, Choke, Diary, and Haunted. His first short story collection, Make Something Up (Doubleday, 5/26/2015), was released in conjunction with the 10-comic series release of Fight Club 2 from Dark Horse Comics.

Kevin Keating has received starred reviews for The Captive Condition (Pantheon Books, 7/7/2015), including this from »

Indiana Jones has been named the greatest movie character of all time ahead of James Bond, Batman and Han Solo in a new poll.
Harrison Ford, 72, takes two places (Jones and Solo) in the extensive survey of 10,000 film fans for Empire magazine, but there is only one female character, Alien’s Ellen Ripley, in the top 10. Sigourney Weaver’s battling warrant officer lands in fifth ahead of The Joker, Die Hard’s John McClane, Fight Club’s Tyler Durden, Darth Vader and The Dude from the Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski.

In the hopes of introducing Fight Club to a younger generation of readers and viewers, the crew at Mashable teamed up with the always-sinewy Chuck Palahniuk to make Fight Club Horsing Around Club 4 Kids. In the video here, the author gives a reading of the punchy children's book and gets really into it. (We are all now Joe's/Jack's Ruined Childhood.) The book's unfortunately not real, per se, but if you need a Palahniuk fix, he did help make Fight Club 2 in comic form, and he has a book of short stories out — which features the wonderful and equally decadent "Zombies." »

"My audience is growing older, and having children. And dying." So sayeth Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk and there is, of course, only one solution: Cater to the kids of the dying audience.

"There was a short period in my life where I hated that movie. I couldn't get any other work. People would be like, 'Heyyy!' and I was like, 'Yeah, one-trick pony,'" the actor, who played Ferris's depressive best friend, Cameron Frye, revealed to Moviefone at a June 7th Tony Awards viewing party.
But, fortunately, he's come to appreciate the 1986 John Hughes film, "Now I'm happy that people still love it," he said. As for all the tributes to the movie on its "30th anniversary," he said. "Yeah, it's nice. I'm really happy that it's touched a lot of people."
He did dispute it being the 30th anniversary of the movie however: A baseball-loving movie fan determined that the actual date of the famous ball game that Ferris, Cameron, and Sloane attend was June 5, 1985, more »

At the risk of going stale, networks are constantly attempting to rewrite the recipes for cooking competition series, with twists ranging from culinary sabotages to hipster kitchen battles. And because of that, food is one of the few growth areas in unscripted competition programming.
Since the Food Network launched “Iron Chef America” 10 years ago, food series have consistently moved away from traditional domestic “how-to” shows toward competitions, according to a 2013 study from Tasha Oren, U. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, associate professor.
“Everybody fancies themselves a food critic and a food aficionado,” he says. “And that’s obviously a great place for us to be in.”
The Food Network has capitalized on the culinary craze by pitting chefs against one another in show after show. »

Editor's Note: The Notebook is the North American home for Locarno Film Festival Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian's blog. Chatrian has been writing thoughtful blog entries in Italian on Locarno's website since he took over as Director in late 2012, and now you can find the English translations here on the Notebook as they're published. The Locarno Film Festival will be taking place August 5th to 15th. ***Like all the great actors, Edward Norton has something that allows him to withhold something from his characters, thus maintaining an element of mystery in every performance. Primal Fear, the film that made his name in 1996 and which won him the first of three Oscar nominations, is emblematic in this regard. His character, Aaron Stampler, the altar-boy accused of murdering the archbishop of Chicago, is full of opacities, and also allowed the young actor to play across a range of different registers, preventing the film »
