Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”

Fall TV Preview: The 17 Most Anticipated Comedies of 2016

6 September 2016 7:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Mary + Jane”

September 5 on MTV 

What Is It? From the writer/directors behind the cult favorite “Josie and the Pussycats” adaptation, this series follows two “ganjapeneurs” who run a weed delivery service in Los Angeles.

I’ll Like It If I Like… The “Broad City” influence is pretty clear, as the show is focused on the tight friendship between Jordan (Scout Durwood) and Paige (Jessica Rothe) and their stoner antics.

Why Should I Care? Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont’s unique approach to satirizing La hipster culture really help this show stand out from the pack of other female-led comedies, while also promising a more surreal touch. Durwood and Rothe also make for an enjoyable pairing. For fans of the pot comedy genre, it’s an easy sell.

Atlanta

September 6 on FX

What is it? Donald Glover of “Community” fame returns to TV in his most ambitious project yet, which he produces, »

Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – Train to Busan (2016)

30 August 2016 4:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Train to Busan, 2016

Written and directed by Sang-ho Yeon

Starring Yoo Gong, Dong-seok Ma, Yu-mi Jeong, Eui-sung Kim, Soo-an Kim, Sohee

Synopsis:

While a zombie-virus breaks out in South Korea, a couple of passengers struggle to survive on the train from Seoul to Busan.

George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead was released in 1968, which means zombies have been a part of cinema history for nearly 50 years and we’ve seen them go through a lot of changes. We’ve seen them go from shuffling lumps to flesh to sprinting terrors. We’ve seen them used in comedies, action and drama, and we’ve even seen them used as romantic leads. So it’s amazing to think that in 2016 – considering the amount of zombie movies that come out each and every year – that someone can bring something new and fresh to the genre without relying on a story gimmick. »

Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – The ReZort (2015)

27 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The ReZort, 2015

Directed by Steve Barker

Starring Dougray Scott, Jessica De Gouw, Martin McCann, Jassa Ahulwalia, Claire Goose, Shane Zaza, Elen Rhys, Lawrence Walker

Synopsis:

The ReZort, a post apocalyptic safari, offers paying guests the opportunity to kill zombies in the wake of an outbreak.

Jurassic World meets Dawn of the Dead in Steve Barker’s ingenious addition to the over-saturated zombie genre. In a world that exists after a zombie outbreak, a rich and powerful CEO rounds up all the remaining zombies (or zees) and places them on an island where tourists can pay to hunt them. As you would imagine, it all goes array when a saboteur enters the island and causes the zombies to break loose and wreak havoc on the visitors.

The ReZort (formally titled Generation Z) is a breath of fresh air, and one that doesn’t come around often enough. With each passing year »

Frightfest 2016: ‘Ibiza Undead’ review

26 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ibiza Undead review: Inbetweeners meets Shaun of the Dead.

Ibiza Undead review, Kat Hughes, Frightfest 2016.

Ibiza Undead Review

If Frightfest had it’s own version of Chinese New Year, 2016 would definitely be the year of the zombie. This year’s line-up is jam-packed with reanimated corpses all looking for their next meal, and competition is rife to come up with a new concept. Ibiza Undead is one of the films duking it out for zombie dominance, placing undead carnage on a party island.

In the world of Ibiza Undead zombies are commonplace and a new strain of virus has started appearing all across the globe. The disease renders people mindless flesh-eating maniacs. Our own fair Isle of Britain has been severely affected, but life still goes on. Zombies are managed and frequent scans are run to ensure that no contaminated hosts make it across the borders.

However, there is always a way around a rule, »

[Review] Level Up

24 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You watch enough hero-backed-into-a-corner action films like Crank, Taken, or The Equalizer and you start to find your mind drifting away from the sheer monotony of their progression. Their characters are built to survive these situations no matter how dire because people want to see the good guy win. They want to see him risk everything, travel in the murky areas of morality, and be the badass society doesn’t allow them to be, but that ultimate victory is key because escapism only works when your surrogate onscreen walks away. How else could there be a sequel? But what happens when a Joe Schmo is thrust into proving his mettle through the same type of scenario? What would those films look like through a Shaun of the Dead filter?

The answer arrives in the form of Adam Randall‘s Level Up, a high-concept thriller wherein slacker Matt (Josh Bowman) is »

  The zombie sub-genre has been done to death of late, as a common stomping ground for contemporary filmmakers, whether that be in blockbuster format with World War Z, or a comedically inclined approach such as Shaun of the Dead, or even a retelling of Shakespeare, as we saw in Warm Bodies.

Who is Squirrel Girl?

19 August 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen delves into the history of Squirrel Girl…

With comic book movies on the mind of every executive in the Hollywood system, it’s become standard practice for interviewers to ask actors if they’d like to star in a Marvel or DC film. It’s just a thing now. We at Flickering Myth have been guilty of doing it ourselves in the past. A few months ago, Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick was asked this question and she replied, “My brother sent me a Squirrel Girl comic because he thinks I should [play her]. I don’t know what Squirrel Girl does other than be half squirrel, but I could be half squirrel.”

Perhaps surprisingly, the comment gained some traction. Suddenly there were fan petitions for Marvel Studios to cast Kendrick in the role and even Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright voiced his approval. Earlier today we brought »

Russos tease a “new character” for Avengers: Infinity War and endorse Anna Kendrick as Squirrel Girl

19 August 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of months ago, Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick made an off-handed comment that she would like to play Squirrel Girl in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Surprisingly, it was a story that caught a lot of wind and even Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright rang in his endorsement. But two men who really matter – in terms of making decisions at least – are The Russo Brothers who are currently developing Avengers: Infinity War. Would they like to see Kendrick join the McU?

“It would be perfect casting, and we’re huge Anna Kendrick fans,” Joe Russo told Yahoo! Movies.

However, it would appear that Squirrel Girl will not be a part of Avengers: Infinity War – but that’s not to say it will be filled with characters already announced. “Anthony [Russo] would probably die from exhaustion if we introduced another character,” Joe joked before his brother added, “That »

Edgar Wright Live Tweets ‘Scott Pilgrim’ for Fans, Exposing Behind-the-Scenes Secrets

14 August 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” remains beloved by its cult fanbase six years after its initial release, making it little surprise that a great many of them took to Twitter to live-tweet the film when it aired on Channel 4 in the UK on Friday night. More unexpected — though perhaps not by much, given his relationship with his fans — is that co-writer/director Edgar Wright joined in as well.

“‘Scott Pilgrim’ is on @Channel4 right now,” he tweeted. “If you All switch on, they might show it as much as @itv2 shows ‘Hot Fuzz’. Do it!” This quickly turned into an impromptu question-and-answer session between filmmaker and audience, with Wright offering thoughts on his actors (Mae Whitman was “a total badass”; Brie Larson’s Oscar win for “Room” was “a retroactive nod” for her role in »

Why Music In Films Matters

14 August 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway argues that soundtracks and scores can make or break films…

This week, Flickering Myth’s own Oli Davis made the persuasive case that Suicide Squad‘s various cuts could be seen in the music they used; with David Ayer’s original version using different styles of music to the final cut by Trailer Park. There was also the release of a report titled “The Effect of Background Music in Shark Documentaries on Viewers’ Perceptions of Sharks” that suggested people are afraid of sharks because of the ominous music used to score film scenes where they are present.  Personally, I’m frightened of sharks because I don’t want one to bite my leg off, leaving me to die an agonising death in the water while wearing only swimming shorts.

What both these stories remind us is the huge part scores and soundtracks play in films; when you get »

Update: Patty Jenkins says rumours of “insiders” claiming Wonder Woman is “another mess” are “entirely false”

12 August 2016 5:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been a bad year for DC and Warner Bros.

What should have been a great year that fully kicked off the DC Extended Universe began with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice under-performing at the box office and getting destroyed by critics and fans, which was then followed up with Suicide Squad also getting bad reviews (not to mention very public reshoots). Although many fans have praised their performance at San Diego Comic Con – which revealed first looks at Wonder Woman and Justice League – the future may not get any brighter for the studio.

In a very passionate open letter to Warner Bros. president Kevin Tsujihara, a former Warner Bros. employee talks about how staff at the studio have been fired while others are rewarded for their failures.

Zack Snyder is not delivering,” Gracie Law, who worked for Warner Bros. in 2014 writes. “Is he being punished? Assistants who »

Sausage Party Review #2: Best Animated Movie of the Year?

10 August 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are a couple of ways to look at a movie like Sausage Party. On the surface, it is a movie about talking food with a bunch of potentially offensive, very on the nose metaphors, and a whole lot of cursing. Seriously, there is so much. But if you allow yourself to peel back the layers, this may very well, very seriously be a contender for the best animated movie of the year. In short, either way you look at it, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have done it again.

Sausage Party, quite simply, tells the story of what happens to food from the perspective of the food. Much in the way that Pixar explored the life of toys with Toy Story, this movie takes a look at the good, the bad, and the downright messed up aspects of a day in the life of food. And also, an actual douche. »
