Venice Film Review: ‘Far From Men’

30 August 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

which stars Viggo Mortensen as a colonial schoolteacher tasked with transporting an Arab farmer accused of killing his cousin to trial. While the film isn’t as tense as “3:10 to Yuma,” nor energetic enough to overcome its niche status, writer-director David Oelhoffen’s idea of approaching this potent two-hander as an Algeria-set horse opera proves as inspired as it is unexpected. By treating the story’s epic High Plateau vistas the way John Ford did Monument Valley, Oelhoffen amplifies the moral concerns facing characters living just beyond the reach of civilization and law.

Whereas some actors have yet to master their native tongue, in this touchingly humane performance, Mortensen convincingly adds French to the already impressive list of languages he can speak onscreen — a list that includes English, Elvish (“The Lord of the Rings”), Danish (“Jauja”), Spanish (“Alatriste”) and Lakota (“Hidalgo”), for those keeping track. Coming from anyone else, »

Star Wars Rebels Gets New Posters, Sdcc Information, and Villain Details

11 July 2014 7:12 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we have to wait another year before getting a new Star Wars movie, fans still have something to look forward to when Star Wars Rebels lands on televisions this Fall (as in just a few months).  As such, Disney/Lucasfilm are pushing the new animated series hard at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and have released a slew of information over the last couple days.  Come inside to see a new video introducing David Oyelowo as an Imperial villain, the full Sdcc Panel schedule for the show, and a swanky Rebels poster. 

While the wait for Star Wars: Episode VII seems insufferable (at least to some of us), we can take comfort in the knowledge that new Star Wars stories will be coming our way soon in the form of the Rebels TV series.  With the show set to debut in a few months, Disney is pushing their marketing »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Not Included in LucasFilm's Comic-Con 2014 Line-Up

8 July 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Comic-Con 2014 just a few weeks away, many fans thought San Diego would be the first place footage or full-costumed cast photos from Star Wars: Episode VII would debut, even though director J.J. Abrams is currently in the midst production. Sadly, today, Disney and LucasFilm confirmed their Comic-Con plans, which included a brief statement confirming that Star Wars: Episode VII will not be featured in any way at the con.

"With Star Wars: Episode VII creators deep in production in anticipation of the film's December 18, 2015, release, Lucasfilm will not be featuring the movie at Sdcc."

We can always hope for the element of surprise, which hasn't served fans well in the past. No previous Con or event has served to provide a first look at Star Wars: Episode VII just yet.

However, LucasFilm and Disney did reveal several other Comic-Con events for Star Wars fans to partake in during the annual San Diego convention, »

Viggo Mortensen brings gravitas to The Two Faces of January trailer

18 June 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Viggo Mortensen inherits a role like a few actors do. Sometimes he'll go a little method (a la Daniel Day Lewis) but I have no complaints. Even the most run-of-the-mill flicks (Hidalgo) command some attention due to his acting prowess. The latest of his films, The Two Faces Of January, looks to feature a love triangle and some crime to link them all together. Check it out: This trailer also showcases the work of Oscar Isaac, who will now be forever known as one of the new cast »

Film Review: Near-Perfect ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Defies Common Sequel Disappointment

6 April 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If the original is anything to applaud, the sequel usually isn’t. And even more rarely is the sequel actually better.

While it’s aggressive to market “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as one of the “best superhero movies of all time” and more realistic to pitch it as “better than ‘The Avengers,’” it most certainly is 2014’s best action flick yet and it definitely defies common sequel disappointment.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

When I think back on “Captain America: The First Avenger” three years ago, I recall it being just fine. I snoozed through a bit of it, I was somewhat underwhelmed by a lot of it and I remember leaving thinking I just got more of the same Hollywood blockbuster formula.

I wasn’t surprised, blown away or boldly thrown off guard by twists and turns I couldn’t have expected. A scrawny nobody gets a high-tech government serum and »

Forest Whitaker in Talks to Direct and Star in The Shack Adaptation for Summit

30 January 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though Forest Whitaker may soon be incurring the wrath of Liam Neeson in Taken 3, the Oscar-winning actor is also lining up another directorial project for the near future.  Deadline reports that Whitaker is in talks to direct and co-star in an adaptation of the bestselling William Paul Young novel The Shack.  The self-published, faith-based book tells the story of a man who whose daughter was abducted and brutally murdered in an abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness.  Years later, the man receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him to return to the shack where he finds something that will change his life forever.  Summit Entertainment acquired the feature rights to the book last April and John Fusco (Hidalgo) is penning the script. Assuming this project moves forward sooner rather than later, this will be Whitaker’s first directorial effort since 2004’s First Daughter.  He also previously helmed 1998’s »

The good news just keeps coming for streaming giant Netflix. Hot on the heels of Sunday’s Golden Globes, which saw Robin Wright take home as a statuette for her lead role as scheming politician’s wife Claire Underwood in the online streaming service’s original series House of Cards, it has been announced that Netflix will expand its already-growing original programming slate with Marco Polo, a series based around the famed explorer.

Joe Johnston Will Direct Alien Invasion Thriller Extinction

8 January 2014 4:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After helming Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger to widespread acclaim, director Joe Johnston is returning to his sci-fi roots for an upcoming alien invasion thriller. Johnston, who got his start as an effects artist and arts director on the original Star Wars trilogy, has signed on to helm Extinction, a sci-fi thriller about a man trying to save his family in the face of an alien invasion.

Described as a “contained sci-fi thriller,” Extinction boasts a script by Spenser Cohen, an up-and-coming screenwriter who previously sold three spec scripts to major studios between 2011 and 2012. Good Universe, which preemptively picked up Extinction last September, compared the project to The Sixth Sense and Cloverfield, though the studio is keeping details on the story tightly under wraps. All I can imagine “contained” to mean is low-budget, so Extinction will likely have a quick shoot and get out to a studio within the next 12 to 18 months. »
