Alien 3: Assembly Cut redeems a dark and unforgetable nightmare

15 December 2013 5:40 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Alien 3

Directed by David Fincher

Written by Larry Ferguson, David Giler & Walter Hill

USA, 1992

It’s a classic chapter of Hollywood lore, one of those great cautionary tales of executive mismanagement and shattered dreams. With behind-the-scenes chaos in both the boardroom and editing suites following up on indecisive strategizing and constant creative overhauls, 20th Century Fox’s hotly anticipated third installment in the Alien franchise was always set up to fail. You could argue that the writing was on the wall when the marketing department jumped the gun by releasing an infamous teaser trailer with the quickly irrelevant tagline “On Earth, everybody can hear you scream”. Half of the industry’s writing population seemed to have a go on spec, from William Gibson (with what was ostensibly an Aliens screenplay) to David Twohy (featuring a Ripley-less premise), $7 million was wasted on rejected sets and the film spent a year in editing, »

Morocco Still a Hot Destination for Foreign Producers

4 December 2013 2:42 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marrakech, Morocco — The local industry started developing at a faster pace in the early 2000s with the creation of the Advance on Receipts, a selective financing mechanism modeled on a French program allowing producers to collect public funds, and the bow of three major film schools: Marrakech’s Superior School of Visual Arts, Ismac in Rabat and Ouarzazate film institute, where students got trained to work on local and international films. The launch of Tangier’s National Film Awards and Marrakech Film Festival also provided emerging filmmakers with a stepping stone and helped build the industry.

Despite the lack of tax incentives, foreign shoots still hit Moroccan shores.

“Producers often chose Morocco over Middle Eastern countries like Dubai because it’s safer, more open — there’s no censorship or limit on what you can say or do — and it’s cheaper,” says Karim Debbagh at Kasbah Films, a production outfit »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2001

4 December 2013 1:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 5 Dec 2013 - 06:54

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2001, and a vintage year for lesser-seen gems...

Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C Clarke may have seen 2001 as the year we'd head off to meet alien intelligences in the depths of space, but in reality, its cinematic landscape was dominated by fantasy rather than extra-terrestrials. Rowling and Tolkien dominated the box office, with Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring earning almost $1bn each, while Monsters, Inc and Shrek thrilled old and young audiences alike.

At the other end of the spectrum of success, 2001 was such a vintage year for movies that we had to whittle our usual selection of 25 films down from an initial selection of more than 40. This is why the decision was made - with heavy heart - to exclude some of our favourite films, »

The James Clayton Column: Sir Ridley Scott returns

14 November 2013 1:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature James Clayton 15 Nov 2013 - 06:43

The arrival of The Counsellor in UK cinemas leaves James thinking about director Ridley Scott's career, and what he's up to next...

The Counsellor has arrived, and with it we find Sir Ridley Scott returning to cinemas. He keeps on returning and will make many more future returns. The fact that he turns 76 at the end of this month is irrelevant because the director shows no sign of stopping, and there's no reason why he should.

At least, that's my personal view as someone who always looks forward to seeing Scott's latest feature at the multiplex. It's good to know that he's still going strong and making films at a prolific rate, because the movie scene would be slightly sorrier without him. A quick sweep across a filmography that includes such eclectic classics as Alien, Blade Runner, Legend, Gladiator and Kingdom Of Heaven (the Director's Cut, »

Pemberton Fuels Scott’s Grisly Drug Dystopia

7 November 2013 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Ridley Scott has worked with some of the most famous composers in the history of movies, from Jerry Goldsmith (“Alien”) and Vangelis (“Blade Runner”) to Hans Zimmer (“Gladiator”) and Harry Gregson-Williams (“Kingdom of Heaven”).

But for his latest opus, “The Counselor,” a thriller by novelist Cormac McCarthy (“No Country for Old Men”), Scott chose someone new: Daniel Pemberton, a 35-year-old English composer who has spent most of the past 15 years penning music for British TV (“Upstairs, Downstairs”).

Pemberton had recently worked with Scott’s editor Pietro Scalia on a short film; plus Scott had liked Pemberton’s score for the U.K. thriller “The Awakening” two years ago.

The Counselor’s” grisly, drug-world saga led to the use of guitars (both acoustic and electric), but that’s just the start of Pemberton’s edgy, often industrial-sounding mix of traditional instruments with electronics. “I wanted to create a sound world »

Directors' Trademarks: Ridley Scott

7 November 2013 6:03 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Each week Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of The Counselor last week, we examine the trademark style and calling signs of Ridley Scott as director.

Although Ridley Scott’s career may not have as many hits as Speilberg’s or Scorsese’s despite being active for just as long, his work has influenced the art of filmmaking just as much. While Speilberg may have blazed trails with his storytelling and Scorsese with his characters, Ridley Scott made waves due to the sensory impact of his movies on their audiences. Like George Lucas, Scott understood the importance of visual and audio stimulation and how these attributes could be used as impactful film making tools. While Lucas’ work resulted in raising audience’s expectations for special effects, Ridley Scott’s work has raised audiences’ expectations »

Why ‘The Counselor’ Is One of Ridley Scott’s Best Films

28 October 2013 5:02 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The truth may not have a temperature, as Cameron Diaz’s leopard-spotted femme fatale says early on in Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor,” but watching the movie you may nevertheless feel a certain chill in the air, no matter the sun-scorched Southwestern locales. Chalk it up to the sangfroid of the characters and their stone-cold greed. There’s an iciness, too, in how the movie has been received: The opening weekend numbers are in and they’re disappointing, the venerable audience-polling firm CinemaScore has branded it with a grade of “D,” and the critics have, by and large, made with the movie like a cheetah with a jackrabbit. The reviews have been especially unkind to Scott, who has been accused of pretension and pomposity. And to his screenwriter, the celebrated novelist Cormac McCarthy, the message has been clear: Don’t quit your day job.

Well, let us acknowledge that Ridley Scott »

Middle East needs to grow infrastructure

26 October 2013 2:58 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Abu Dhabi Film Festival’s locations panel also talks about importance of international shoots for training local crews.

Michael ‘Mick’ Flanagan, head of the Abu Dhabi Film Commission, said attracting film shoots to Abu Dhabi isn’t just about the desert. “We have amazing new architecture,” that is attractive to productions set in the near future. “We want to showcase what we have other than the desert. We don’t just want to do war movies. We go out there to say, ‘We’re not just sand guys.’”

Abu Dhabi offers a new 30% cash back rebate for international production and has recently welcomed two Syrian productions; the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced Beware The Night; and will soon welcome Fast & Furious 7. “It’s a generous incentive because we really are at the beginning of the film industry here and the best way to attract people is to give them cash.

Christian Bale Sprouts A Biblical Beard In Exodus Set Photos

23 October 2013 10:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott has not had the greatest of luck with historical epics. Kingdom of Heaven, 1492: Conquest of Paradise, Robin Hood…these are not household names for great epic films. But Scott is hoping that Exodus, his upcoming epic of biblical proportions, will fix his track record.

Though we haven’t seen anything from the film just yet, set photos have surfaced this week, giving us a glimpse at the director’s latest foray into semi-historical lands.

In case you did not know, Exodus stars Christian Bale as Moses, the man with the plan to liberate his people. There’s also a slew of big name stars on hand to round out the cast of presumably thousands, including Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Joel Edgerton and Aaron Paul.

Some of us have been wondering what Bale will look like as Moses, and now we need wonder no longer. We know: Moses »

16 October 2013 9:22 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Dutch multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom 'JunkieXL' Holkenborg has confirmed that he's set to do the film score for George Miller's "Mad Max: Fury Road".

JunkieXL (aka. Jxl) has contributed to other composer's film scores in the past on films like "Domino," "Inception," "The Dark Knight Rises," "Kingdom of Heaven" and "Man of Steel". He's now creating full film scores for movies such as "Paranoia" and the upcoming "300: Rise of an Empire".

Holkenborg confirmed the news in a tweet, following on from hints of a secret meeting with George Miller in Sydney in August. Miller is currently at work prepping for additional filming on the new 'Max' in Sydney next month.

Joel Edgerton in Talks to Join Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s Moses Epic Exodus

13 August 2013 2:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Director Ridley Scott’s Moses epic Exodus is coming together quite nicely.  While Scott has been developing the pic for some time, the project picked up steam earlier this year when Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) turned in a rewrite of the Adam Cooper and Bill Collage script.  Christian Bale was being courted to play Moses in the film, and now it appears that Bale has indeed signed on to play the Biblical character as THR reports that The Great Gatsby star Joel Edgerton is in talks to play the Egyptian ruler Ramses.  Hit the jump for more. The folks over at THR report that Edgerton has entered talks to join Scott’s film, which is on track to start production this September in Spain, Morocco, and England in anticipation of the film's recently-announced December 12, 2014 release date.  The Wrap adds that Javier Bardem was »

Mass destruction and modern cinema

15 July 2013 2:11 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'Though audiences remain uneasy with extreme violence, they're unmoved by violence on an extreme scale'

The Golden Gate Bridge first met its big-screen demise in 1955, torn apart by a giant stop-motion octopus in It Came From Beneath The Sea. This weekend it faces yet another aquatic foe: a fearsome "Kaiju" monster in Guillermo del Toro's hulking mess of a creature feature, Pacific Rim. But where the malevolent mollusc of the 1950s threatened only one life (a courageous marine biologist named John, if you were wondering), today's beast kills hundreds, indiscriminately, before the film has even reached its title card. Sixty years ago we agonised over John's plight; now we look on with blasé indifference as scores of Johns and Janes are flung helplessly to their deaths.

A certain dispassionate approach to mortality has been part and parcel of the action genre since its earliest days, when tight censorship controls »

Hannibal Season Finale Review: “Savoureux” (Season 1, Episode 13)

21 June 2013 9:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Good things come to those who wait,” so says the old English saying. And for those of us who adore the world of Harris, whether since the publication of Red Dragon, the cinematic achievement of Silence, or just recently here with Hannibal, last night’s Season 1 finale was sheer perfection.

I’ve been railing at the De Laurentiis’ for decades for their seemingly intractable unwillingness to let us experience the fullness of Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter, and what makes them tick as individuals and in their unsettling pas de deux. They violated the story by excising the dragon the first time around (Manhunter), and redeemed themselves after Silence’s unequivocal success by remaking Red Dragon, but then completely chickened out and changed the ending of Hannibal, rendering it just grisly without meaning.

But all is now forgiven. Last night we got to see that glorious moment: Hannibal’s direct »
