Aesthetics of the Nazifilm

18 June 2015 5:24 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Christian Friedel's Everyman Elser in 13 MinutesThe Berlinale would not be the Berlinale without its annual Nazifilm in competition, and last year’s WWII melodrama, The Monuments Men, was yet another testimony to the genre’s narrative fatigue: The GIs having had already cinematically liberated the Jews, the Gypsys, the Homosexuals, Europe, the World and even the Germans from themselves, are filmed fighting to save one final victim—European Art (bypassing the slightly uncomfortable and paradoxical snag that what they were laboring to save were the artifacts of same European civilization which birthed the eugenics, nationalism, and fascism that were the pillars of Nazi ideology).This year’s Nazi drama, 13 Minutes, was no less wearied. Based on Johann Georg Elser’s failed assassination attempt of Hitler and the German high command in 1939 at the very same Munich beer hall where Hitler’s putsch had failed 16 years earlier, 13 Minutes mythologizes Elser »

Spectre featurette: A new video blog shows behind the scenes footage from the shooting of the opening sequence at the Day Of The Dead festival in Mexico City. Spectre featurette

A new Spectre featurette has just been released from the production of the 24th James Bond adventure. The 2-minute promo features a behind-the-scenes look at the film, which is still shooting under the direction of Sam Mendes.

The Mexico set action sequence will have the country’s Day Of The Dead festival as a back drop, and will feature as the elaborate opening scene of the new movie, which opens in the UK and the Us in early November this year.

Sam Mendes said: “I wanted the audience to be dropped right into the middle of a very, very specific, very heady, rich environment. It’s the Day of the Dead, everywhere you look there’s colour and detail and life. »

Will Tarantino's 70mm 'Hateful Eight' Be an Oscar Contender?

12 June 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Following the two-week engagement, the film will open with a theatrical digital release nationwide on January 8, 2016, while continuing to be shown in 70mm. This marks the widest 70mm release that the industry has seen in over twenty years. Back in 2012 TWC also booked Paul Thomas Anderson’s "The Master" in 70 mm houses.   Celluloid-lover Tarantino, who runs the New Beverly Cinema, which exclusively shows film prints only, believes that "glorious" 70mm is the best way to experience his Civil War-era western. And a Christmas Day release will be a prime time late-year showcase for the movie in Academy-centric cities like Los Angeles and New York. While late releases don't always have the advantage these days, the Academy loves Tarantino and is one of the last remaining demos to appreciate the art of the western. They will check out the movie: after all, "Inglourious Basterds' and 'Django Unchained' earned 8 and 5 Oscar nominations, »

Eli Roth, Knock Knock, and his impact on horror

11 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Eli Roth returns to the big screen with the Keanu Reeves-headlined Knock Knock. Wil looks back at his impact on horror...

It’s 13 years since Eli Roth made his debut with the grisly, inventive virus thriller Cabin Fever. And despite only directing four other full features since then — the latest of which, Knock Knock, is about to be released on June 26th — he’s made an indelible mark, a gory, bloody mark, on American horror cinema.

He’s one of that rare breed of directors, like a Scorsese or a Tarantino or a Hitchcock, that you know what they look and sound like. That aren’t just names behind a camera, but faces in other people’s movies, chat show guests, and have celebrity other halves. It doesn’t always mean that they are a great filmmaker, but it usually means that they are far more than just a person with technical skill. »

The Hateful Eight Shoot Was (Literally) Cool, Says Samuel L. Jackson

2 June 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are few filmmakers considered as thoroughly cool as Quentin Tarantino, the genius behind blood-stained genre romps Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds, but it turns out the director took that label very seriously on the set of The Hateful Eight. In order to maintain the realism of the period piece, set during a brutal winter blizzard, Tarantino apparently shot the film on a refrigerated set.

Samuel L. Jackson, who has a key role in the star-studded film, revealed to Collider that working on the film was “taxing in a very interesting way.” He went on to explain:

“Quentin shot on a refrigerated set, and it was 30 degrees every day in there. We were miserable in the environment. You could see our breath, but the stuff that we were doing was amazing. We would finish doing a scene and look at each other and just grin like, ‘this is incredible.’ And »

B.J. Novak signs on for McDonald’s Founder Biopic starring Michael Keaton

29 May 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As if The Founder didn’t already sound promising enough the highly anticipated biopic, telling the story of the notorious McDonald’s exec Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), has just added another very talented actor to its cast. B.J. Novak of NBC’s The Office has now joined the pic, marking the actor/comedian’s reunion with director John Lee Hancock.

The Founder is a dark telling of the rise of the massive McDonald’s food chain. The biopic will detail the true story of how Illinois salesman Ray Kroc met brothers Mac and Dick McDonald (John Carroll Lynch and Nick Offerman) in Southern California, where they were running a small-time burger operation. Kroc eventually took control of the siblings’ company and turned it into a billion-dollar fast food empire.

Review: David Duchovny chases Charles Manson in NBC's underwhelming 'Aquarius'

27 May 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In "Aquarius," David Duchovny plays an La cop in 1967 with old-school hair and old-school values. Asked to find a teenage girl who has vanished into the city's hippie underbelly, he reluctantly teams with a shaggy-haired young cop with crazy new ideas about civil liberties and equality. Very quickly, then, the series sets itself up as an ideological  clash between the veteran and the rookie, even as they collaborate to find the girl and potentially put a charge on the charismatic guy named Charles Manson who has her under his sway. The generation gap on the show is pretty stock stuff, unfortunately. Far more interesting, if not creatively successful, is the way that "Aquarius" itself is caught between multiple generations of television at once, attempting to function simultaneously as a broadcast network drama, an edgier cable-style show, and something designed to be binged like it was being released by Netflix or Amazon. »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Meet the Bad Guys of 'Captain America: Civil War'

18 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

This week, Captain America: Civil War set photos revealed Frank Grillo in costume as Captain America villain Crossbones. We last saw Grillo as disgraced Shield agent Brock Rumlow with his broken body loaded into an ambulance during the finale of Winter Soldier. Astute Marvel fans knew that wouldn’t be the last we’d see of Rumlow and Civil War looks to deliver on the promise of introducing one of Cap’s biggest pains into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s not alone. Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds) is confirmed to play Baron Zemo in Civil War, a character known to comic readers as Cap’s number two archenemy right after Red Skull. If Red Skull is off the table after his denouement in The First Avenger, then we are more than fine with Zemo coming...
