Review: Netflix's 'Narcos' Starring Wagner Moura And Boyd Holbrook

46 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s no surprise that Pablo Escobar’s decades-long rise from petty street crime to the “The King of Cocaine” has inspired more than a dozen iterations on screen. Beyond the varied TV documentaries, his persona has loomed large in cinema and the small screen ever since his inspiration for Paul Shenar’s Sosa character in 1983’s “Scarface”; Cliff Curtis’ brief but effective turn in “Blow”; last year’s “Escobar: Paradise Lost” starring Benicio del Toro; and the fantastic documentary “The Two Escobars.” The list of upcoming and recent failed attempts at telling Escobar’s story is nearly as long (Oliver Stone and Joe Carnahan each tried, unsuccessfully, to mount a film), and while the kingpin is clearly attractive to Hollywood and beyond, one constant remains — he’s yet to be the lead character in his own story. And it’s an unfortunate fact that continues with “Narcos,” the latest »

New trailer for Netflix’s upcoming ‘Narcos’ brings the violence along with the money

19 August 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a critically acclaimed turn in Season four of HBO’s Game of Thrones, actor Pedro Pascal is set to return to television in a major role once again, this time on Netflix’s Pablo Escobar drama Narcos.

The show, Netflix’s newest original series, has now released a second trailer. Narcos will have its first season written entirely by Hannibal scribe Chris Brancato, with Elite Squad and RoboCop director José Padilha helming every episode. Wagner Moura steps into the role of Pablo Escobar, and Moura and Pascal are joined onscreen by Boyd Holbrook, Ana de la Reguera, and Manolo Cardona.

The series itself will trace the rise of Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cartel, as well as the DEA Agents who went after them. Escobar and the cartel made their money by smuggling cocaine from Colombia to the Us in the 80s, with the DEA intent on either arresting or killing him. »

Johnny Depp and the Black Mass cast get blood red character posters

6 August 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Johnny Depp is about to get into a whole lot of trouble – again. You’d think with movies like Public Enemies and Blow behind him, he’d learn not to get tangled up with the FBI. Okay, sure, Johnny and his characters aren’t one and the same, but it’s sometimes hard to remember that.

For example, is this Johnny or Jack adopting this orphaned bat? I can’t tell anymore.

In Black Mass, Johnny becomes Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious criminals in American history. The film – bursting at the seems with Boston accents – also stars Dakota Johnson as Bulger’s wife, Benedict Cumberbatch as Bulger’s state senator brother, as well as Joel EdgertonKevin BaconJuno TempleJesse PlemonsPeter Sarsgaard, and Corey Stoll. It breaks into theatres on September 18th.

Depp Is Spot On As Whitey In ‘Black Mass,’ Some Thoughts Video

23 May 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

One thing we know for sure: Johnny Depp does a badass Boston accent.In the film, “Blow,” he played cocaine king George Jung, and nailed that elusive lilt that a Boston accent has (there are actually many variations within Massachusetts of this accent) which is a hard one for a lot of actors. Not Depp. Amazing, considering he hails from Kentucky.Frankly, I’ve been waiting on this movie for long time. Depp transforms into James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger in ‘Black Mass” beautifully, accurately.Personally, Bulger’s real-life crew and their legendary deeds done for the Patriarca family of New England, including local crime boss, […] »

'Black Mass' Trailer: This Is the Johnny Depp Everyone Has Been Waiting to See Again

23 April 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Johnny Depp is a tremendous actor. No one is going to argue that point. And yet we can also all agree that people don't get as excited for his movies as they once did. After a string of oddballs like Alice in Wonderland, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and Mortdecai, it's understandable that many fans aren't so quick to fall for yet another movie where Depp plays a cooky weirdo with a strange wardrobe. Black Mass, however, looks like it will realign everyone's expectations for Depp movies back to the likes of Blow, Donnie Brasco, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Directed by Scott Cooper (Into the Furnace), Black Mass tells the true story of notorious Boston criminal Whitey Bulger, and as you can see from the intense first trailer for the movie...

Johnny Depp is Whitey Bulger in Black Mass' first trailer with Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott

23 April 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In this September’s Black MassJohnny Depp returns to the life of crime as Whitey Bulger, a character light-years away from Mortdecai’s moustache-twirling eponymous art dealer, or the wacky world of his frequent collaborator Tim Burton.

Bulger is perhaps best known to film audiences as the real-life inspiration behind Jack Nicholson’s Boston mob kingpin in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. If Jack’s Frank Costello is only the carbon copy of Bulger, then we should be in for a hell of a ride with Black Mass and the real deal.

“He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra—you never knew where he could strike,” says director Scott Cooper of Bulger, a regular on the FBI’s ten most wanted fugitives list.

Bulger isn’t the first notorious crime lord brought to the big screen by Depp. He portrayed the infamous drug trafficker George Jung in Blow, »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer discuss ‘Blow-Up’

19 March 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their third piece, they will discuss Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up.

****

Landon’s Take:

The cultural impact of Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow Up would be very difficult to overemphasize. Upon release, Andrew Sarris referred to the film as “a mod masterpiece” and ‘Playboy’ critic Arthur Knight went so far as comparing the film to Hiroshima mon amour, Rome Open City, and Citizen Kane in its potential influence on filmmaking. The film was also a massive hit worldwide and the tenth highest grossing film in the United States in 1966 – a memento of a brief window in time in which an art film by an Italian auteur could also do boffo box office. And, having been denied a seal by the Production Code Administration, Blow Up »

Thn Interview: ‘It Follows’ Actor Daniel Zovatto

25 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This week sees the release of indie horror It Follows. You will have no doubt seen the posters or trailer plastered everywhere, but you might not know too much about the film. It Follows is the second feature film from director David Robert Mitchell and sees teenage girl Jay, played by Maika Monroe, the star of last year’s brilliant The Guest, and her friends stalked by a malevolent spirit. So far it sounds like every horror film out there but the twist with It Follows is that you only become a target if you sleep with someone already in its sights; it’s a cross between the video in Ringu and an Std.

Last week we had the opportunity to sit down with both director David Robert Mitchell and one of the young cast, actor Daniel Zovatto. Zovatto is originally from Costa Rica (yes folks the land of Jurassic Park »
