Why ‘Death Note’ Is Guilty of Whitewashing, and What We Can Do to Prevent More Movies Like It

31 August 2017 6:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

So Netflix’s “Death Note” is finally available to stream around the world, and everyone is completely thrilled about it with no reservations whatsoever, the end.

Just kidding. While the release of Adam Wingard’s controversial manga adaptation has been overshadowed by everything from Hurricane Harvey to “Game of Thrones” and even a different story of Hollywood white-washing (albeit one with a happy ending, thanks to actor Ed Skrein agreeing to remove himself from the “Hellboy” remake), the movie has been kicking up a fuss ever since it was first announced that none of its major characters would be played by actors of Asian descent. The case may not be quite as cut-and-dry as it was with this year’s ill-conceived “Ghost in the Shell” remake, but the discussion around it may be even more valuable for that.

Below, IndieWire critics David Ehrlich and Hanh Nguyen dig into the issue. »

‘Hellboy’ Whitewashing Controversy: 5 Japanese Actors Who Could Take on the Embattled Role

29 August 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Early last week, white British actor Ed Skrein joined the cast of Neil Marshall’s upcoming “Hellboy” reboot, a casting choice that was immediately derided for its whitewashing of Skrein’s character, a Japanese-American Marine named Ben Daimio (whose family tree includes no less than a famous Japanese spy and war criminal, who also appears in the John Arcudi and Mike Mignola comic book series). In short order, Skrein did something wholly remarkable: he dropped out of the project after learning about Daimio’s heritage.

In an official statement, the actor made it clear that he believed the choice was what was “right,” noting that portraying the part in “a culturally accurate way” was clearly important for audiences (Skrein also pointed to his own “mixed heritage” family in the statement, which you can read here). In a »

First Godzilla 2 Photo Teases Major Connection to 1954 Original

14 August 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Michael Dougherty (Krampus) is hard at work on Godzilla 2 right now, which is currently slated for release on March 22, 2019. The movie is going to do a lot for hardcore fans of the franchise by bringing on some classic kaiju from the history of the series with Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah joining up with the King of the Monsters. Now, Dougherty has revealed a new set photo that appears to be teasing a major connection to the original 1954 Godzilla movie.

Michael Dougherty recently took to Twitter in order to post a photo from the set of Godzilla 2 that doesn't feature any monsters in it, but is definitely a (potentially) big deal. Those who have seen the original Godzilla will likely recognize the weapon depicted in the photo as the Oxygen Destroyer, a weapon that removes oxygen from whatever body of water it is placed in and was used to »

The 15 greatest John Williams scores you've forgotten about

1 August 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Aug 4, 2017

Yes, Star Wars. But what about all the great John Williams scores from less famous movies? Here are 15 of them...

Cinema's most esteemed and popular film composer, John Williams, turned 85 this year (you might have seen the recent spectacular BBC Proms concert in his honour). Careers don't come more astonishing than that of Williams, nominated for 50 Academy Awards which puts him second only to Walt Disney for the most ever.

See related  What does Iron Fist tell us about Marvel's Defenders? The Defenders: recapping Netflix's Marvel universe so far The Defenders: brand new images released

However it's all too tempting to boil Williams' career down to the more obvious highlights: Star Wars, the Indy trilogy, Superman, E.T., Jurassic Park and the like. In truth, he's a far more versatile composer than many like to give him credit for, and he's much more than just a big themes guy. »

Exclusive: Pilou Asbaek talks Ghost in the Shell and working with Scarlett Johansson

24 July 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Ghost in the Shell set for its UK home entertainment release on Digital on July 24th and on August 7th on DVD and Blu-ray, we chat to actor Pilou Asbaek about his role in the film as Batou, and working with Scarlett Johansson who portrays the character of Major.

Were you familiar with the source material for Ghost in the Shell?

I saw some of the anime in the 90s but I can’t say I was a fan. It was a part of my history, but I wasn’t like one of those die-hard fans.

How did you become involved in the film?

It’s actually an interesting story. It’s a very long story so I’ll try to make it short. I worked with one of the producers in a little indie film before that. And he introduced me to the director of Ghost in the Shell, »

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Next Godzilla Film And Tag Movie Begin Production

22 June 2017 5:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Following the global success of 2014’s “Godzilla” and this year’s “Kong: Skull Island,” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse: an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.

The film, which began principal photography on June 19, is being directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (“Up in the Air,” “The Conjuring” films), and Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), both reprising their “Godzilla” roles; Kyle Chandler (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Manchester by the Sea”); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (“Get Out”); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (“Straight Outta Compton”); Aisha Hinds (“Star Trek Into Darkness”); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

Dougherty directs from a script he wrote with Zach Shields. The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Behind the scenes, Dougherty’s creative team includes director of photography Lawrence Sher, whose past credits include “War Dogs” and “Godzilla,” for which he handled additional photography; production designer Scott Chambliss (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”); editor Roger Barton (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the “Transformers” films); costume designer Louise Migenbach (the “X-Men” and “Hangover” films); and Oscar-winning VFX supervisor Guillaume Rocheron (“Godzilla,” “Ghost in the Shell,” and part of the Oscar-winning team behind “Life of Pi ”).

Filming is taking place mainly in Atlanta, Georgia. A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film is currently scheduled for release in March 2019, and will be distributed in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd.

Meanwhile, Tag! You’re It!

Production begins this week on location in Atlanta for the new comedy “Tag,” directed by Jeff Tomsic (Comedy Central’s “Broad City”) for New Line Cinema. The film’s starring ensemble cast is led by Ed Helms (The “Hangover” movies, “We’re the Millers”), Jake Johnson (TV’s “New Girl”), and Hannibal Buress (“Neighbors”), with Jon Hamm (“Baby Driver,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner (“The Hurt Locker, “The Town”).

For one month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag they’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take each other down with the battle cry “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, “Tag” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing.

The film also stars Annabelle Wallis (“The Mummy”), Rashida Jones (TV’s “Parks and Recreation”), Isla Fisher (“Now You See Me”) and Leslie Bibb (“Iron Man 2”).

Tomsic directs from a screenplay written by Mark Steilen (TV’s “Mozart in the Jungle”) and Rob McKittrick (“Waiting”), based on the Wall Street Journal article entitled “It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being It.” The film is produced by Todd Garner, Mark Steilen and Sean Robins, with Hans Ritter serving as executive producer. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Larry Blanford, editor Josh Crockett, production designer David Sandefur, and costume designer Denise Wingate.

Tag” is set for a June 29, 2018, release.

Watch the UK trailer for Wakefield, starring Bryan Cranston

22 June 2017 4:24 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Signature Entertainment have debuted the UK trailer for the upcoming Bryan Cranton-led drama Wakefield. The film, which debuted at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival back in September of last year, arrives on the home formats in the UK in July. Watch the Wakefield UK Trailer below.

Wakefield UK trailer lands online ahead of a direct-to-digital/ DVD release.

Have you ever just wanted to walk away from it all? And how would your friends and family cope in your absence if you did? Those questions and more are asked in the strikingly original Wakefield, debuting at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival before arriving on digital platforms on July 28th and DVD from July 31st courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Successful suburbanite Howard Wakefield (Bryan CranstonBreaking Bad, Trumbo) takes a surprising detour from family life when it all starts to get too much: He vanishes without a trace. Hidden in the attic of his carriage house garage, surviving by scavenging at night, Howard secretly observes the lives of his wife, his children and his neighbours as they learn to live with his unexplained disappearance. But has he left his family, or has he left himself?

A fraught meditation on marriage and identity, Wakefield features a tour de force performance from a never better Cranston in a film that won wide praise following its debut last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. Based on a short story from the legendary American novelist E.L Doctorow and brought to the screen by acclaimed writer/director Robin Swicord (The Jane Austen Book Club, Memoirs Of A Geisha), Wakefield features supporting performances from Jennifer Garner (Dallas Buyer’s Club, Juno), Beverley D’Angelo (Entourage, Cougar Town) and Jason O’Mara (The Good Wife, Marvel’s Agents Of Shield), but make no mistake – this is Cranston’s film, featuring a truly towering performance from one of the most important actors working in film today.

We reviewed the film at Tiff last year, and you can check it out right here.

Godzilla 2 Begins Filming, What Monsters Will The Creature Fight?

19 June 2017 5:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Back in 2014, Legendary released the American reboot of Godzilla. Of course, this is a character that’s been in the pop culture zeitgeist for decades, starting with the 1954 film, Godzilla, and after the botched attempt in the late ‘90s, fans hoped that this would be the one Hollywood interpretation to succeed. And succeed it did. The film was certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and it managed to rake in over $500 million at the worldwide box office, securing not only a sequel, but its place in a larger MonsterVerse.

We’ve known for some time that the sequel would be called Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and with the film hitting principal photography today, we now know why. According to a press release from Warner Bros., the film will have Godzilla going up against three other legendary monsters.

Here’s what we have as the most basic synopsis for the flick:

“The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”

The film, which begins principal photography today, is being directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus), and stars Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Conjuring films), and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), both reprising their Godzilla roles; Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea); Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (Get Out); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley); Charles Dance (HBO’s Game of Thrones); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton); Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

Godzilla 2: Impressive Cast List and Plot Details Revealed as Filming Begins

19 June 2017 2:02 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Today filming has started on the next Godzilla movie (which is apparently back to being untitled), and to commemorate the beginning of production, Warner Bros. has released the full, impressive, cast list along with confirmation on the plot this time around.  Come inside to check it out!

As a huge monster movie fan, Gareth Edward's Godzilla (2014) really got my blood pumping, and hoping that a new wave of monster movies would be on the way.  Thankfully, that's exactly what's happening, with this year's Kong: Skull Island setting the groundwork for a more interconnected "monster-verse."  

The sequel to Godzilla was announced quite some time ago (during Sdcc) in which Edwards, who was still signed on to direct at the time, revealed iconic monsters Rodan, Mothra, and King Gihdorah would appear.  When Edwards stepped away from the project, coupled with the amount of time passing, many wondered if the plot would stick. »
