‘Donnybrook’ Movie in the Works from ‘Dark Night’ Director

30 August 2016 1:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Lancaster’s Rumble Films has signed “Dark Night” writer/director Tim Sutton to adapt and direct the crime thriller “Donnybrook,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Dark Night,” which premiered at Sundance in January, will screen at the Venice Intl. Film Festival. The film focuses on the lives of six strangers intersecting at a suburban multiplex where a massacre occurs.

“Donnybrook,” the first novel from Frank Bill, follows two men as they try to get to the Donnybrook — a legendary backwoods bare knuckle brawl where the winner gets $100,000. Bill is the author of the short-story collection “Crimes in Southern Indiana.”

Sutton’s previous films include “Memphis” and “Pavilion.”

“I was knocked out when I read ‘Donnybrook,’ the most raw, out of control, nasty piece of business I have ever come across,” said Rumble Films topper David Lancaster. “It fits perfectly within the signature films that Tim has made culminating with the powerful ‘Dark Night. »

Summer Movie Winners and Losers: A Critic’s Round-Up

28 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the movie world, the difference between success and failure will always be measured, to a degree, at the box office. But that can’t be the only measure. What follows is a semi-objective (as in: let’s tote up a few numbers and see what they mean) and critically subjective (as in: here’s what was good, whether or not it made money) compilation of the highlights and lowlights of the 2016 summer movie season. Please feel free to agree, disagree, or call out your own favorites and duds.

Winner: The way to get animated  Twenty-one years ago, the launch of Pixar didn’t just herald the age of digital animation. It kicked off a renaissance in mainstream animated filmmaking that, miraculously, has only grown.

Having achieved stardom stateside with his Late Late Show, James Corden is now shifting car insurance. He’s having a good time but he’s no Ryan Gosling

Tired of rapping with Michelle Obama and showing off to Adele, sycophantic churner of chat James Corden is back in London and kindly picking up his mate from Waterloo. Fresh from having flogged the Late Late Show’s carpool karaoke slot to international broadcasters, he’s now shifting car insurance. Presumably that’s how he got his hands on this ad’s real star: a classic Mercedes-Benz W108.

Visually, the mood is very Drive – Corden is even introduced as “The Driver” and is wearing something akin to that jacket. But he’s no Ryan Gosling – whom we can’t imagine celebrating this much at hitting a few green lights. Corden’s delight is ignored by his passenger, who shushes him while he speaks on the phone. »

Newswire: The Drive soundtrack is being reissued on vinyl

18 August 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive is definitely more style than substance, but that’s hardly a problem when the style is just so good. A lot of that style comes from Ryan Gosling’s instantly iconic scorpion jacket, but the film’s retro-ish soundtrack handles a lot of the heavy lifting all on its own. Now, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the film’s release, Lakeshore Records and Geoff Barrow’s Invada will be releasing a limited edition version of the Drive soundtrack on vinyl. The reissue will feature appropriately stylish new artwork as well as new linter notes by Refn and Cliff Martinez, the film’s composer. According to Fact Magazine, it’ll only be available from September 30 to December 31, so make sure to jump on it if you’re eager to listen to A Real Hero again—and really, who isn’t?

Interview: Director Marie Ullrich on Blu-ray & DVD Release of ‘The Alley Cat’

17 August 2016 8:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Using Chicago as a backdrop has rarely been as kinetic and exciting as under the direction of Marie Ullrich. Expanding upon a short film she produced in 2010 called “Faster,” about a bike messenger in the Windy City, Ullrich went for a grittier and more emotional look at that world in “The Alley Cat” in 2014. The film was released on Blu-ray and DVD on August 16th, 2016.

The Alley Cat” evolves the story of Jasper (Jenny Strubin), the protagonist in the previous short film “Faster.” In “The Alley Cat,” Jasper is participating in a nighttime bike race/rally through Chicago, with her bike messenger colleagues. At the same time she is having family issues, including a relationship confrontation with her sister. Everything is coming to a resolution on race night, as fast as a lightweight bike on flat pavement. The film uses the available light of the streets, and is told »

8 killer cues from Cliff Martinez’s The Neon Demon soundtrack

Sean Wilson takes a closer look at the latest captivating collaboration between director Nicolas Winding Refn and composer Cliff Martinez

Filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn doesn’t court controversy and outrage so much as revel in it, and his latest hallucinatory nightmare The Neon Demon is no exception. A surrealistic and increasingly shocking tale of the fashion industry crossed with elements of vampirism and necrophilia, it’s a visually luscious throwback to the exploitation movies of which Refn is so fond. Descending into a neon hell with Refn once again is Drive and Only God Forgives composer Cliff Martinez – and the results are spectacular. Here are several key moments from what is assuredly one of 2016’s most distinctive and striking soundtracks.

Neon Demon

Although not strictly a themes-and-variations score, this dreamy and beguiling opener does introduce what could be described as its principal idea. An undulating, deceptively tranquil and innocent pulsating »
