'Into the Badlands' Recruit Nick Frost on Giving Simon Pegg an Atomic Powerslam

12 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Into the Badlands, AMC’s genre-bending post-apocalyptic martial arts drama (try saying that five times fast) returned with a bang earlier this month, the first two episodes of season two earning largely rave reviews across the board.

Added to the action is a major new character, Baiji, being played by Nick Frost, the British actor famed for his comedy collaborations with old friend Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul), and, more recently, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Doctor Who and the upcoming TV comedy with Rupert Grint, Sick Note.

How a Pregnant Actress Overcame Her Frustrations With the Industry and Directed Her First Feature

23 March 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alice Lowe spent a decade getting ready to direct her first feature, but after taking two short films to Cannes, she started to worry that the clock was running out. She was pregnant with her first child and had spent the past decade thinking about her first feature in between acting gigs.

“If you’re a woman over 35, no one is going to hand you a free pass,” the actress-turned-filmmaker recently told IndieWire. “You have to work your ass off. That’s what I am doing now.”

The determination led her to complete “Prevenge,” a black-as-night horror-comedy in which she also stars. Lowe plays the heavily pregnant Ruth, who has recently lost her partner (and the baby’s father) in a seriously weird climbing accident. And while Ruth isn’t necessarily bent on revenge, her unborn child sure is, and the expectant mother comes to believe that her little bundle »

Director Alice Lowe On Reshaping the Revenge Genre

23 March 2017 6:52 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The director dishes on industry bias, ‘Taxi Driver’ and turning a perceived setback into opportunity.

The buzz surrounding Prevenge, the pregnancy revenge horror film written, directed and starring Alice Lowe, is well-deserved. Prevenge follows Ruth (Lowe), a grieving woman who embarks on a killing spree and believes that her unborn child is guiding her in this quest for revenge after the loss of her partner. Chock-full of biting British humor, this mother-to-be’s rampage is both relatable as well as a refreshing new twist on the sub-genre that has often been plagued by rape plot lines. But most of all, it’s wickedly funny, which comes as no surprise considering Lowe’s remarkable career in comedy across the pond.

Although Prevenge is her directorial debut, Lowe has worked alongside some of the biggest names in British comedy for the better part of fifteen years, including Rob Brydon’s Annually Retentive, Horrible Histories »

Movie Review: A woman’s fetus commands her to kill in pitch-black slasher comedy Prevenge

22 March 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Pop culture frequently depicts pregnant women as beatific fertility goddesses, flush with hormones and the unparalleled satisfaction of fulfilling their biological destiny. (See: Beyoncé’s pregnancy photos.) Either that or they’re fragile vessels, their “condition” rendering them vulnerable to not only the cruelties of men but also the whims of the life inside them. Writer-director Alice Lowe—the co-writer of Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, who’s probably best known in the U.S. for her roles in Hot Fuzz and on Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace—skewers both of these viewpoints in Prevenge, a wryly misanthropic slasher comedy about a woman whose fetus commands her to kill.

Lowe, who was actually pregnant during filming, stars as Ruth, a seemingly rootless woman who lives out of a hotel room and stalks the streets of an anonymous city searching for what at first seem to be random victims. Her only regular human »

Edgar Wright discusses Baby Driver and reveals its origins

21 March 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Before The Worlds End, before Hot Fuzz and before Shaun Of The Dead, there was Baby Driver, or at least the beginnings of it. It's been four years since our last Edgar Wright film, but, after the unfortunate business with Ant-man, it feels as though it's been much longer. We're still a few months out from the release of Baby Driver, but the film recently had its premiere at SXSW and... Read More »

The Sweet Symphony of Violence

21 March 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best cinematic action of 2017 in three parts from the movies of SXSW.

It was heavier than I had anticipated. At the age of 16, if my memory serves me correctly, it was the first time I’d ever held a real gun. In the midwest, surrounded by a family full of avid hunters, this was a right of passage. At some point an uncle or two would want to show you the awesome power of a real firearm, both as appreciation for the weapon’s power and as a lesson in the seriousness of its deadly potential. The weight of the revolver in my hand brought both of these concepts to life with immediacy. It’s hard to hold a real gun and not be in awe and at least a little terrified. It’s a feeling I’ll never shake, perhaps one of those moments in which a teenager’s journey toward adulthood was accelerated a »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘Being There,’ ‘Fire at Sea,’ ‘Multiple Maniacs,’ and More

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

Being There (Hal Ashby)

On paper, there’s an implausibility to the central conceit of Being There that could have resulted in a four-quadrant studio comedy forgotten soon after its release. However, with Hal Ashby’s delicate touch — bringing Jerzy Kosiński and Robert C. Jones‘ adaptation to life — and Peter Sellers‘ innocent deadpan delivery, this 1979 film is a carefully observed look at how those we interact with can offer an introspective mirror into our own lives. “There’s so much left to do, »

Robert Downey Jr. is the New Dr. Doolittle

21 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Plus: A news roundup, the best Fsr articles, and five perfect shots.

It might be difficult to remember, but Robert Downey Jr. is not just Tony Stark. For the last decade the actor’s filmography has been dominated by the role, with a little Sherlock Holmes thrown in for good measure, but other than that there have been very few gigs the actor has taken outside the franchise world.

But now there comes word, via THR, that Downey has booked his first major non-Marvel role in a little bit, and it’s quite the departure: Doctor Doolittle.

You know the good Doctor, he who can communicate with the animals and uses this power to, I don’t know, doctor them? Rex Harrison (My Fair Lady) first brought the character to life on the silver screen back in 1967, and of course there’s the Eddie Murphy franchise complete with a couple spinoffs that started in 1998, but if the »

Into The Badlands Season 2 Review

19 March 2017 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The first season of Into the Badlands gave us a martial arts warrior who rode a motorcycle through a post-apocalyptic “Badlands” dominated by murderous nomads, opium-harvesting slaves and warring feudal lords. It contained zero smiles or laughs, aside from the occasional moments of violent glee on the faces of its most dangerous villains. The main characters were Sunny (the aforementioned motorcycle-riding warrior, portrayed by Daniel Wu) and M.K., a demon-possessed teenager (portrayed by Aramis Knight) who once murdered a boatload of slaves (while in the possession of the aforementioned demon).

Welcome to the second season of Into the Badlands, where much has changed. First of all, M.K. and Sunny are nowhere near one another, after spending the six episodes of season 1 going through the motions of a pretty typical mentoring dynamic. Sunny begins the second season in a chain gang desert »

28 Best Drunk Scenes in Film

17 March 2017 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, arguably the biggest drinking holiday of the year, we looked at some of the best drunk moments to grace the silver screen. From Humphrey Bogart’s classic, heartbreaking “of all the gin joints” speech in “Casablanca,” to the utterly ridiculous scene in “Team America” when the puppets spew their guts up, here are the 28 best drunk scenes on film.

Leaving Las Vegas” — Booze Run

Although not a traditional “drunk scene,” the opening scene of “Leaving Las Vegas” — which sees Nicolas Cage’s Ben Sanderson dancing through a liquor aisle piling his cart sky high with booze — is as good a prelude to this list as any.

Arthur” — Introducing Princess Gloria

Dudley Moore’s Arthur spends the majority of the film tipping back drinks, but his introduction of “Princess Gloria” to his aunt and uncle at a restaurant — and his insistence that Rhode Island could »

SXSW 2017: Official Clip & Trailer for Prevenge

16 March 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ahead of its March 24th release on the streaming service Shudder, Alice Lowe's dark comedy horror film Prevenge is teased in an official clip and trailer.

In case you missed it, read Heather's SXSW review of Prevenge, and check here for our other coverage of the SXSW Film Festival.

From the Press Release: "Prevenge marks the directorial debut from Lowe (star and writer of Ben Wheatley’s “Sightseers”), who is a true triple threat, writing, directing, and acting in the film during her own real-life pregnancy. The film received praise from critics and audiences alike at the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals, as well as a British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Directorial Debut.

A pitch black, wryly British horror comedy from the mind of Alice Lowe (“Sightseers,” “Hot Fuzz,” “Paddington”), Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree, that’s as funny as it is vicious. »

‘Baby Driver’ Director Edgar Wright and Walter Hill Discuss ‘The Driver,’ the Most Influential Car-Chase Movie No One’s Seen

14 March 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” is the toast of South by Southwest. The allusive writer/director gives credit where it’s due in a new interview published by Empire, namely Walter Hill’s 1978 “The Driver”; Wright praises Hill in general and his 1978 car-chase movie in particular throughout their discussion, which seems a continual surprise to the genre auteur. “The Driver” “did not find an audience,” says Hill, who has to be reminded of his film’s impact on a generation of filmmakers by the “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” director.

Elle (Paul Verhoeven)

Paul Verhoeven’s latest treatise on high / low art isn’t going to appeal to everyone, and, as this awards season has shown, it’s already deeply offended some. But its messiness and blurred moral provocations are key to its power as a piece of cinematic trickery. A masterful character study, Elle dresses up a pulpy morality play with an austere European arthouse sheen, then sends its powerfully passive lead through a minefield of ethical conundrums, »

Ansel Elgort and Kevin Spacey's Baby Driver Looks Like the Ultimate Heist Movie

14 March 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you were going to recruit a celebrity team to help you pull off a massive heist, who would you pick? Ansel Elgort wouldn't necessarily be at the top of our list, but Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright could not have chosen better for Baby Driver. The action flick sees Elgort as Baby, a talented getaway driver who has to complete one last job for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) before he can leave that world behind him with his girlfriend (Lily James). The trailer is not only full of insane driving and nuggets of wisdom from Jamie Foxx ("The moment you catch feelings, is the moment you catch a bullet") but also a pretty great soundtrack. See it when it hits theaters on Aug. 11. »

Baby Driver Trailer Goes Full Throttle with Jamie Foxx and Ansel Elgort

12 March 2017 4:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Finally, the very first trailer for director Edgar Wright's Baby Driver is here! It has been four years since we have seen anything new from the beloved filmmaker, whose last movie The World's End beautifully rounded out his Cornetto trilogy. Now he is totally switching gears and stepping away from the world of comedy with Baby Driver; an action-driven crime thriller that looks to be something very different than anything we have seen from him previously.

The Baby Driver Twitter account started teasing the arrival of this very first trailer last week with some simple photos and gifs from the movie, but they were stingy on the footage, whihc http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byb2eJ_lLesSony has now released online.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are working on a new project

12 March 2017 1:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like a potential Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunion is on the horizon, with Frost revealing that the duo are currently working on a new project, which would mark their first collaboration since 2013’s The World’s End.

“Simon and I are working on something. We’re trying to do something a bit special at the moment,” Frost tells Inverse, noting that as yet it’s undecided as to whether it will be a TV project or feature film. “It’s a work in progress, and we may have some more information on it later in the year. I think I’d [want] to do something in the sci-fi world. Something a bit ghost hunter-y, or a bit Monster of the Week in a comedy. With two guys and a girl, it’s like The X-Files, but they’re not affiliated with any government agency.”
