Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener set for comic book adaptation New York City Outlaws

30 July 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Entertainment Weekly, Jason Eisener – director of 2011’s Hobo with a Shotgun – has signed on to helm an adaptation of Robert Huszar and Ken Landgraf’s underground comic book series New York City Outlaws. The film is being scripted by Bryan Conolly and Zack Carlson and follows “a group of vigilantes who join forces to rescue NYC from total anarchy during a prolonged police strike.”

Eisener’s directorial debut Hobo with a Shotgun was based upon the winning trailer from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse contest and saw Rutger Hauer in the lead a homeless man who turns to vigilantism in order to battle crime and corruption. He followed it up with the ‘Slumber Party Alien Abduction’ segment of V/H/S/2, and is currently directing second unit on Adam Wingard’s Death Note adaptation.

In Defense of Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof

Shock’s Trevor Parker rises to the defense of one of Tarantino’s most maligned works. Next year will mark a decade since the release of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse, a double-feature throwback experiment that stroked the sensibilities of genre nerds while confusing and alienating the general moviegoing public. Upon Grindhouse’s theatrical release, anecdotes came…

The Smallest Show On Earth: In Memory Of The Bijou (1957) And The Alger (1940-2015)

18 June 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The delightful British comedy The Smallest Show on Earth headlines a great Saturday matinee offering from the UCLA Film and Television Archive on June 25 as their excellent series “Marquee Movies: Movies on Moviegoing” wraps up. So it seemed like a perfect time to resurrect my review of the movie, which celebrates the collective experience of seeing cinema in a darkened, and in this case dilapidated old auditorium, alongside my appreciation of my own hometown movie house, the Alger, which opened in 1940 and closed last year, one more victim of economics and the move toward digital distribution and exhibition.

“You mean to tell me my uncle actually charged people to go in there? And people actually paid?” –Matt Spenser (Bill Travers) upon first seeing the condition of the Bijou Kinema, in The Smallest Show on Earth

"X-Men: Apocalypse"- Violence Against Mutant Women ?

5 June 2016 7:56 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports, a movie poster promoting "X-Men: Apocalypse", picturing  mutant 'Mystique' (Jennifer Lawrence) strangled in a choke-hold by 'Apocalypse' (Oscar Isaac), has sparked outrage because of its depiction of "violence against women...":

Actress Rose McGowan ("Grindhouse") has been the most vocal over the ads, that depict a scene from the movie.

McGowan said the ad trivializes violence against women.

"There is a major problem when the men and women at 20th Century Fox think casual violence against women is the way to market a film," she said.

"There is no context in the ad, just a woman getting strangled. The fact that no one flagged this is offensive and, frankly, stupid..."

As a 'shape-shifter', 'Mystique' aka 'Raven', can alter the formation of her biological cells at will. As a result she can cause herself to look and sound like an exact duplicate of any human of either sex, »

Why One X-Men: Apocalypse Ad Is Offending Some Fans

3 June 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t exactly the blockbuster hit fans of the series were expecting it to be. Though the movie continued the rebooted universe set in play by X-Men: Days of Future Past, the latest chapter in the franchise opened on a coveted Memorial Day weekend but put up weaker numbers ($65 million) than Days ($90.8M) or the juggernaut that was Deadpool ($132.4 million) earlier this year. But the quality of the film isn’t what has actress Rose McGowan up in arms. It’s the marketing. Rose McGowan has done her fair share of genre work, having appeared for years on Charmed, in the original Scream and in the Robert Rodriguez Grindhouse experiments. But when it came to a recent ad for X-Men: Apocalypse -- the one that showed Oscar Isaac’s titular villain choking Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique (shown above) – McGowan, via THR, has »

Acclaimed Italian horror maestro Lucio Fulci, director of Zombie and The Beyond, stars in this blood-soaked epic as a director being driven insane by his own movies.

New Rebates and Facilities Look to Boost Chilean Filming

16 May 2016 11:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Big changes are afoot in Chile.

Cash rebates of up to 20%-40% may launch before the year’s end. Ongoing talks with economic authorities are now “in an interesting phase,” says the Chile Film Commission’s Viccenza Martini Vera.

“There is absolute certainty in the film sector and in other institutions that Chile will soon take its place on the world stage among competitive locations.”

Such a move would be great for Chile on several levels, says Fabula producer Juan de Dios Larrain, whose brother Pablo’s latest drama “Neruda,” co-financed by Participant Media, competes at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight. “Not only will it be good for Chile on economic terms, but what is invested in the country and on rebates will be largely compensated by the prestige and attention it will bring the country and the diversity of its locations.”

Meanwhile, Pinewood Studios inked a memo of understanding in November »

Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter – Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

8 May 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

      

“Jason’s body has disappeared from the morgue!”

Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter screens Midnights this weekend (May 13th and 14th) at The Moolah Theater and Lounge (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo 63108) as part of  Destroy the Brain’s monthly Late Night Grindhousefilm series.

Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), the fourth film in the venerable franchise, is considered by hard-core fans of the series to be the best, although it was hardly the “final Chapter” (there were at least 10 more). Directed by Joseph Zito (The Prowler) directed, which is indeed far above average by slasher standards and features a good cast of recognizable 80’s brat pack wannabes, including Crispin Glover (Back To The Future), Corey Feldman (The Goonies), Lawrence Monoson (Last American Virgin) and Judie Aronson (Weird Science). It also ranks as one of the goriest in the series, thanks to the return of makeup effects legend Tom Savini, »

30 Things We Learned from the Planet Terror Commentary

5 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“A lot of this was done at the very last minute.”

2007’s Grindhouse experiment between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino was viewed as something of a misfire upon its initial release, but in the years since it’s enjoyed something of a reappraisal. Most viewers seem to have a strong opinion as to which of the two films is best, but regardless of where you land on that point there’s no denying that Rodriguez’s Planet Terror is far more attuned to the “grindhouse” aesthetic.

Where Death Proof feels like a slickly produced Tarantino film, Planet Terror is a gloriously intentional mess of jarring cuts, cheap tropes, B-movie dialogue, and crowd-pleasing beats. It’s not great cinema, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and one of Rodriguez’s most consistently entertaining movies.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the Planet Terror commentary!

Posterized: Movies named after holidays

29 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With Mother's Day in theaters today starring romcom queens of yester-yore (Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts and Jennifer Aniston) the question comes to mind: What other U.S. holidays are available for Garry Marshall to make all star ensemble mosaics about?  A lot of holidays are already taken as you'll see in today's Posterized. (Disclaimer: We've opted to include only movies with theatrical releases and no holiday-themed titles -- there'd be hundreds with straight to dvd titles or movies with a holiday within the title)

How many of these movies, which take their names from holidays, have you seen?

Let's take them in order of their place on the calendar.

New Year's Day (1989), New Year's Day (2000), Groundhog Day (1993)

Ash Wednesday (1973), Valentine's Day (2010), April Fool's Day (1986)

Mother's Day (2016), Independence Day (1983), Independence Day (1996)

Labor Day (2013), Halloween (1978), Halloween (2007)

Christmas Eve (1947), Christmas Eve (2015), New Year's Eve (2011)

Miramax and El Rey Network announced today four new cast additions to the Albuquerque-based production of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, set to return for a third season later this year. Ana de la Reguera (Jane the Virgin, Narcos) will have a recurring role as Lord Venganza Verdugo, one of the seven remaining culebra Lords whose ancient roots and personal history put them at the center of an epic clash between good and evil. Also joining the cast is Chilean martial arts action star, Marko Zaror (Machete Kills), as Zolo, an Aztec warrior trained in hell, and iconic horror movie maven Tom Savini (Friday the 13th, From Dusk Till Dawn). Savini, who starred as Sex Machine in the original film, lights up the brand new role of Burt, a retired demon hunter who smokes more medical marijuana than he sells.

Detour Review [Tribeca 2016]

16 April 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Writer/director Christopher Smith’s Detour has all the hallmarks of a noir thriller: law student and basically nice guy Harper (Tye Sheridan) falls into the bad company of Johnny (Emory Cohen) and his stripper girlfriend Cherry (Bel Powley) during a drunken binge at a bar. Harper’s mother is in a coma after a car accident and he believes that his stepfather Vincent (Stephen Moyer) is responsible. Seeing a chance for some quick cash, Johnny offers a deal: for $20,000 he’ll drive with Harper to Vegas and knock off Vincent. Harper agrees, but wakes up the next morning with Johnny banging on his door and has a quick change of heart. Johnny won’t take no for an answer, so off Harper goes on a road trip to either kill his stepfather, or find a way out of his predicament. But nothing, as the cliché goes, is what it seems. »

Rolling Thunder is April’s Late Nite Grindhouse

30 March 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Rolling Thunder is one of my favorite films. I’m not just saying that because it is next month’s Late Nite Grindhouse screening, it includes almost everything I loved in 70’s cinema. It is a vigilante story, a character study, a road movie and a great, justifying finale. It doesn’t hurt that it feels, at times, an echo of co-writer, Paul Schrader’s previous work, Taxi Driver (which is definitely in my top 5 of my favorite films).

The film has had a release history that was troubled. Rolling Thunder was to be released by 20th Century Fox but after it showed as a sneak 2nd feature in a double bill with the third Dirty Harry film, The Enforcer, the crowd reacted violently towards some of the studio heads in the audience. This infamous screening took place in San Jose where the majority of the crowd was latino and »
