The Dressmaker movie review: haute couture as a tragicomic weapon

20 November 2015 8:07 AM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

So entertaining, so unexpected, so wonderfully oddball, so damn good. Witty genre-busting simmering with pathos, humor, and calamity. I’m “biast” (pro): love Kate Winslet; desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Like a gunslinger riding into town. Determined and dangerous. This is how director Jocelyn Moorhouse depicts the return of Tilly Dunnage to her backwater Australian town of Dungatar. The locale may be vaguely western-ish — remote and dusty — but the year is 1951 and Tilly comes armed only with a Singer sewing machine, her Parisian-inspired haute-couture style, and a superpowered ache for revenge.

I had no idea what I was in for with The Dressmaker, and even that opening — with its witty genre-busting that culminates in Tilly’s snarl to herself of “I’m back, you bastards” — couldn’t possibly have clued me in. »

Jennifer Aniston May Figure Out ‘What Alice Forgot’

30 October 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The last two really good movies Jennifer Aniston was in are The Break-Up and Friends With Money. Both films are almost ten years old. Since then, she’s appeared in quite a few broad comedy hits, but few movies that show what she’s fully capable of. Fortunately, we may see Jennifer Aniston in What Alice Forgot, a literary adaptation for which she is in talks to star. […]

Peyton Reed Will Return to Direct Marvel's 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'

22 October 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Recently, Marvel (and Disney) announced that the sequel to Ant-Man would be titled Ant-Man and the Wasp and is slated to arrive in theaters July of 2018. We already know, and certainly expect, that actor Paul Rudd will be back as Scott Lang, aka Ant-Man. Now THR is reporting that director Peyton Reed is also returning for the sequel, and is in negotiations to direct Ant-Man and the Wasp as his next feature. Most will remember that Peyton was chosen to replace Edgar Wright, who left after working on the project for a long time. The movie still turned out pretty good, the sequel is already in the works, and Reed will be back. Before getting into the Marvel Universe, Peyton Reed was making mostly comedies including Bring It On, Down with Love, The Break-Up and Yes Man with Jim Carrey. Marvel's Ant-Man movie ended up with a box office total of $178 million in the Us, »

13 August 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Stuffed with tricks and sprinkled with treats, Halloween night is a busy one for police officers, but a small town's law enforcement runs into something much more dangerous than teenage pranksters in Live Evil, an upcoming horror film that co-stars Tony Todd and is teased in a new trailer.

We've been provided with an exclusive premiere of the Live Evil trailer for Daily Dead readers to watch. You can catch Live Evil at three upcoming film festivals this Halloween season: the Diabolique International Film Festival in September (25th–27th), the Horror in the Hills Film Festival on October 17th, and the North Carolina Festival.

Ant-man – Another Take

18 July 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Face front” all you Marvel-maniacs! The movie universe is expanding by actually getting…smaller. When we last visited the studio mega-franchise, just about ten weeks ago, metallic maniac Ultron ( a really major fail from Stark Industries) was out to destroy humanity until the Avengers (lead by the big heavy-hitters like Thor and the Hulk) pulled the plug on his plans. And story lines were in place for a new cosmic menace. But this new entry is not set way, way up there like last Summer’s surprise smash Guardians Of The Galaxy. Our new hero is more down to Earth (many times he’s a fraction of an inch from Earth). Non-comics fans may be surprised that he’s actually one of the earliest Marvel characters, almost pre-dating the age of heroes by his introduction in the Sf suspense story titled “The Man in the Ant Hill” from the anthology »

How 'Ant-Man' Believably Pulled Off the 'Incredible Shrinking Man' Gag

17 July 2015 9:41 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Peyton Reed ("Yes Man," "The Break-Up") wanted to direct "Guardians of the Galaxy," but finally got his Marvel shot with "Ant-Man" when Edgar Wright left because of too much micro-management and shared universe-tinkering. Yet Reed insists that the DNA remains intact: it's still an absurd superhero/heist movie/domestic drama built around father/daughter redemption. In fact, Reed believes it's "the single most challenging character in Marvel history." "In the comic book realm, he was a founding Avenger but he never had his own comic magazine, and he always had, in the context of 'The Avengers,' an inferiority complex because he's this tiny hero fighting alongside the Hulk and Thor," Reed explained. "And he might even have a dose of schizophrenia. But in terms of the Marvel cinematic universe, he didn't make it into 'The Avengers' movie, so for me it's very gratifying to do an Ant-Man origin story and, »

Exclusive: Ant-man Director Peyton Reed Talks Sequels, Comic Nerds, Villains And More!

16 July 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I had the chance to sit down with Ant-Man director Peyton Reed and thought there was no better time to release the interview than now, thanks to the film hitting theaters this week. Reed is probably best known for directing the comedy films Yes Man and The Break-Up. He has also directed episodes of New Girl, Grosse Pointe and The Weird Al Show. It was an absolute blast to sit down with him and I think you'll learn a thing or two that may surprise you both about film and the people behind it. What did the filmmakers have to say about bringing Peyton Reed on to bring the story and the new franchise to the forefront of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? They thought he was the perfect choice! "I've been a fan of Peyton's for a long time," says producer Kevin Feige. "I have met and spoken to him »

'Ant-Man' Interview with Michael Pena | Exclusive

16 July 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Pena is an actor whose career I've been intently following for the past 10 years. After popping up in small but impressive roles in back-to-back Best Picture winners Million Dollar Baby and Crash, and in a wonderful arc on my favorite TV show ever, The Shield, the actor started coming into his own with solid supporting roles in Shooter, Lions for Lambs, Observe and Report and American Hustle. After his fantastic scene-stealing performance in Marvel's Ant-Man (check out my full Ant-Man review), the actor is primed for a huge career leap.

The actor portrays Luis, a longtime friend and criminal cohort of Scott Lang, who gives him a place to crash after his release from prison. Luis also sets up the heist that essentially introduces him to Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), setting him on a path to become the Ant-Man. When Scott is tasked with pulling off an improbable heist, »

'Ant-Man' (2015) Movie Review

16 July 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A new origin story is told in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it doesn't arrive in theaters without its own bit of controversy. After eight years in development under the care of Edgar Wright, the co-writer and director parted ways with Marvel after it was Wright that reportedly convinced the studio the story of a man that shrinks down to the size of an ant could make for a viable feature film. Thus, Ant-Man was without a leader... for about two weeks. Peyton Reed (The Break-Up), a self-described "Ant-Man" fan, took over for Wright while Adam McKay and star Paul Rudd reworked the script to meet Marvel's supposed needs. The end result is a film where you can feel the influence of its original leader as much as you can the formulaic touch of a studio ensuring its brand never strays too far off track. Ant-Man is, therefore, just as »

Forecast: 'Ant-Man''s Huge/Tiny $60M Opening

14 July 2015 9:22 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

2nd Forecast Update: Ant-Man pulled in $22.6M on Friday, with its Thursday take of $6.4M representing 28% of its gross. That figure is better than the Friday take of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which brought in $21.5M. There's an asterix on that number, however, as the big green guy had a per-screen average of $6,125 on 3,505 screens. The latest Marvel entry from director Peyton Reed was on 3,856 screens for $5,872 per screen. Trainwreck is coming into the station faster than expected. Its three-day estimate stands at $28.9M, from a $10.7M Friday start on 3,178 screens and a $3,336 per screen average. This Friday tally too has a qualification. Director Judd Apatow's latest has a Friday total better than his biggest hit, Knocked Up, which made $9.8M, but Knocked was on 307 fewer screens (2,871) and had a better per-screen average of $3,415. Forecast Update: Ant-Man opened to $6.4M from Thursday shows, a respectable start but one that »

Ant-Man movie review: superhero reduction

13 July 2015 1:19 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Marvel’s tiniest hero stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s smallest movie so far, one that loses Paul Rudd’s charm among familiar comic-book action. I’m “biast” (pro): love Paul Rudd

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Marvel’s tiniest hero! Now starring in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s smallest movie so far. Also its most run-of-the-mill movie so far.

This was bound to happen eventually. There are only so many ways you can take a guy — always a guy! — who’s a little bit messed up but basically a decent fellow who just needs a little redemption to set him on the right road, expose him to a little magical mad science, give him a special suit to run around in, and set him loose on the bad guys.

We have seen this all before. Oh, sure, »

‘The Wedding Ringer’ Blu-ray Review

5 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Colin Kane, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers, Aaron Takahashi, Olivia Thirlby | Written by Jeremy Garelick, Jay Lavender | Directed by Jeremy Garelick

Confession time. I’m not the biggest Kevin Hart fan. I don’t mind the actor/comedian in small doses – a supporting actor in films such as the remake of Death at a Funeral and the Scary Movie franchise, but  I can’t sit through any of his stand-up shows in there entirety and the last movie hes was the “star” of, Ride Along, was – frankly – awful. However I am always willing to give Hart’s film a go – especially when they look, albeit from the trailer, as hilarious as The Wedding Ringer.

And I’m happy to report The Wedding Ringer is not only a fantastic bro-mance flick (yes, they Do exist »

Ant-Man Writing Credits Are Made Official After Production Difficulties

23 April 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arbitration to determine the legally binding, official writing credits of movies seem to be quite common occurrences – particularly in this age of studios commissioning several versions of scripts before cameras even roll. The implications are far-reaching for the writers involved, affecting everything from income to professional standing and reputation, but most are resolved without coverage from the press. Those headlines that do feature writing credit disputes are often attempts to generate salacious gossip or cause conflict where none previously existed, but with Ant-Man, the situation is somewhat different. This is as important to the fans as it is to the writers.

As a film adaptation of a Marvel comic book, Ant-Man began as Edgar Wright’s brain-child, which he nurtured and developed for almost a decade before getting the official nod from Marvel. He wrote the script with collaborator Joe Cornish (Attack The Block), and got the film almost entirely through its pre-production phase, »

Listen: Jon Brion Talks The Tyranny Of Temp Film Scores & More In Fascinating 1 Hour Talk

15 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Of all the left-field composers out there — typically musicians who don’t follow the traditional rules of film composing — if Jon Brion isn’t at the very top, he’s very damn close. The musician, composer, producer (who has worked with folks like Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Of MontrealElliott Smith and more) has been tapped by filmmakers like Paul Thomas Anderson (“Magnolia,” “Punch Drunk Love”), Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind”), David O. Russell (“I Heart Huckabees”), Charlie Kaufman (“Synechdoche, New York”), Miranda July (“The Future”) and more. In recent years he’s been moving towards comedies, especially for the films of Adam McKay (“The Other Guys,” “Step Brothers”), Vince Vaughn (“The Break-Up,” “Delivery Man”) and Judd Apatow. Brion scored “Funny People,” “This Is 40,” and has also written the music for the upcoming “Trainwreck” film starring Amy Schumer. The bête noir of all film composers is temp music — the music a. »
