Sundance Interview: 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' Director Taika Waititi

5 February 2016 4:40 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"With comedy, the rules are always changing. I don't even know any of the rules. It's probably better to not even know the rules." I love Taika Waititi's movies. At my very first Sundance in 2007, I flipped for a little New Zealand comedy called Eagle vs Shark. It was my first introduction to Taika Waititi and actor Jemaine Clement, and I've been a fan of both ever since. Ten years later and Taika is back at Sundance with his latest film, titled Hunt for the Wilderpeople, an adventure in the New Zealand bush starring Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. The film was one of my favorites of the festival, it's hilarious and so much fun to watch. I'm looking forward to the film opening in theaters so everyone else can see it and enjoy it, too. At Sundance this year, I was lucky enough to catch 15 minutes with Taika »

'Thor: Ragnarok' Funnier Than 'Thor: The Dark World'?

24 January 2016 10:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have long been used to expecting the unexpected when it comes to the Marvel movies, especially when it comes to the studio's choice of directors. No one expected the studio to hire Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) to direct Thor: Ragnarok, but the move made more sense when producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed he wanted the director to inject more humor into Thor: Ragnarok. The Wrap caught up with the filmmaker at the Sundance Film Festival, where he briefly discussed his approach to the humor.

"Just take what they've done before. I'm just going to take the second Thor film and just add some jokes to that."

Taika Waititi signed on to direct back in October, and we also reported that Mark Ruffalo is coming back as Hulk. Both Thor and Hulk are said to go on a "cosmic road trip" in this superhero sequel, »

Sundance 2016: Taika Waititi's 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' is Pure Fun

23 January 2016 10:06 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Taika Waititi is back and better than ever! No seriously, this film is Taika's best yet, and I've been following him ever since I saw Eagle vs Shark premiered at Sundance 10 years ago. Hunt for the Wilderpeople is the latest feature from Kiwi director Taika Waititi, who writes and directs and also has a small role in the film. Set mostly in the New Zealand "bush", the mostly uninhabited forested wilderness taking up some of the island, the story is about a troublemaker foster care kid named Ricky Baker who finds his true family when he's taken from the city to the countryside. I laughed my ass off, but the film actually has an immense amount of heart, too. By the end I was a fan of Ricky Baker and his "screw this" attitude and wanted more. At first it seems like Ricky (played by newcomer Julian Dennison) won't fit in, »

Love & Friendship

Directed and written by Whit Stillman

Ireland/France/Netherlands, 2016

The Last Days of Disco, Metropolitan, and Barcelona were amongst the best of 90s independent cinema, if one had the stomach for incessant dissections of ego, academia, and capitalism. With more talking than action, director/writer Whit Stillman brought us complex comedies of manners that had to be intently listened to in order to distill satisfaction. Selfish and »
