Dakota Fanning joins Daniel Bruhl and Luke Evans in The Alienist

17 January 2017 7:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

THR is reporting that Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) has secured the female lead alongside Daniel Bruhl (Captain America: Civil War) and Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) in The Alienist, TNT’s upcoming adaptation of Caleb Carr’s bestselling novel.

The psychological thriller series takes place in 1896 New York, and will see Fanning as Sara Howard, a headstrong secretary at police headquarters who teams up with criminal psychologist Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Bruhl) and reporter John Moore (Evans) to investigate a series of grisly murders.

The Alienist is being directed by Jakob Verbruggen (Black Mirror), who also executive produces alongside Cary Fukunaga (True Detective), Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) and Hossein Amini (Drive). Production is set to get underway in Hungary ahead of a premiere later this year. »

Synopsis revealed for Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film The Avenging Silence

12 January 2017 1:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Nicolas Winding Refn loves a brooding, near silent hero – as seen by his previous movies Drive, Only God Forgives and Valhalla Rising. Well, he looks to be back at it again, revealed by an extensive synopsis for his new movie The Avenging Silence.

Refn, whose most recent movie The Neon Demon debuted last year, is supposedly working on an action spy thriller set in Tokyo, Japan, writing the flick with Bond veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Perhaps then The Avenging Silence will be his most accessible film since Drive. There is a caveat however; the film’s protagonist is a mute.

The synopsis, coming from the Crouching Tigers Project Lab by way of The Playlist, reads as follows:

The spy was one of the leading spies in Europe. An injury inflicted to his vocal cords during a failed mission six years ago left him mute, forcing him to leave his profession. »

The Avenging Silence: new details emerge for Nicolas Winding Refn's action thriller

11 January 2017 11:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 12, 2017

Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn's next film is an action thriller, The Avenging Silence. Here are some early plot details...

Whether they're about violent British prisoners, Los Angeles models or Bangkok gangsters, Nicolas Winding Refn's movies are reliably low on dialogue and high on saturated, sometimes unnerving images. That style is likely to continue in Refn's next movie, which is described as an action thriller about a mute spy on a mission in Japan.

Newswire: Nicolas Winding Refn’s next movie will be about a mute spy fighting the yakuza

11 January 2017 3:44 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon was a nice return to form after the disappointing Only God Forgives, but it sounds like his next film will be a direct attempt to cater to fans of his phenomenally stylish 2011 thriller Drive. For cool people who like cool stuff, that’s pretty good news all on its own. It gets even better, though, because The Playlist has uncovered some details about the film’s plot, and it sounds like it’ll be the very best kind of ridiculous.

As we previously reported, the film is called The Avenging Silence and it’s a spy thriller set in Tokyo, but this new report adds that it will be about a former European spy who lost the use of his vocal records after a botched mission, leaving him unable to speak and with no choice but to give up the spy game ...

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Yakuza Action Feature ‘The Avenging Silence’ Gets Extensive Synopsis

11 January 2017 1:34 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With The Neon Demon now (almost completely) exorcised from Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn‘s system, he is already deep into preparing his next project. On the docket for the director is The Avenging Silence, which will apparently sate Refn’s desire to make a “big extravagant action film.” Refn also said over the summer it is loosely inspired by “Dr. No,” Ian Fleming‘s classic Bond novel, as well as William Burrough‘s “Nova Express.” An extended synopsis has now been released for the feature, which hopefully will make its way to screens by 2018.

While he has dipped into action in sections of DriveBronson and The Pusher Trilogy, The Avenging Silence sounds like a big step for Refn into pure spy/action genre fare. However, fans of Refn’s stylistic choices should rest assured as he has already stated his protagonist won’t say much. This time, that »

13 Real-Life Los Angeles Locations Every ‘La La Land’ Fan Should Visit

10 January 2017 12:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This story originally appeared on travelandleisure.com

At this point, it’s become cliche to say that a city plays a character in certain films. But, then again, not every film spends as much time running around a city as La La Land.

The hit movie, which has already been nominated for over 140 awards — including seven Golden Globes — dedicates as much time showing off the city of Los Angeles as it does to the love story between its two main characters, Mia and Sebastian.

“The way the film mixes two people leading very hip, modern lives with all these iconic Hollywood locales is unique, »

BAFTA Awards: Ryan Gosling Lands First-Ever Nomination

10 January 2017 2:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Given Ryan Gosling's impressive status as both a Hollywood A-lister and indie darling, many would be forgiven for assuming the star had at least a couple of BAFTA nominations under his belt.  

But while the actor has been recognized by the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, Teen Choice Awards (of course...The Notebook) and the London Film Critics Circle Awards for a body of work that includes Drive, Half Nelson, Blue Valentine, Crazy Stupid Love and Lars and the Real Girl, he had yet to be given BAFTA's approval.

Until 2017.

'Drive,' Subject of a Viral Lawsuit, Still Being Litigated Five Years Later

9 January 2017 9:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Maybe it was the comical premise, but when a Michigan resident filed a lawsuit in 2011 over the Ryan Gosling-starrer Drive, practically every news outlet wrote about it. The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Guardian, Time magazine and other publications were fascinated by a woman's allegation that the trailer was misleading — Drive wasn't a chase film a la The Fast and the Furious — and her gripe that the movie supposedly promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith.

As far as we can tell, no one wrote about »

Chris Jericho leaving WWE? A huge Nxt return and Vince McMahon’s weird booking idea…

6 January 2017 7:48 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I love Noam Dar. Before he signed with WWE, I’d been watching him in wrestle in glorified North London pubs for years. You know the guy who says that he liked something before it was cool? I’m that guy right now.

But for good reason. He’s a great wrestler. He oozes charisma. He used to wear Ryan Gosling’s jacket from Drive down to the ring. Granted, not all of that has been showcased in WWE so far, but at least he’s involved in a storyline feud.

Which brings us to the other person who likes Noam Dar: Vince McMahon. But unfortunately not for the same reasons.

CageSideSeats are reporting a rumour that one reason for the Dar/Cedric Alexander/Alicia Fox love triangle on Raw and 205 Live is because Vince thinks it’s funny how Noam’s Scottish accent makes ‘Fox’ sound like…the »

The underrated film acting performances of 2016

4 January 2017 1:39 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Jan 6, 2017

Viola Davis, John Goodman, Bryce Dallas Howard and more, in our rundown of 2016's underrated movie acting work.

This article contains minor spoilers for Pete's Dragon, Suicide Squad and Warcraft: The Beginning.

Nobody is likely to look back on 2016 fondly, whether because of global political instability, celebrity deaths or the rejection of Boaty McBoatface as a suitable name for a research vessel. In the world of film, we note that a lot of the contenders in this year's awards season haven't even been released in UK cinemas yet, and it was hardly a banner year for blockbuster cinema either.

On the plus side, there were some exemplary smaller films, of the kind that awards bodies tend to overlook, released in the last 12 months. Without any apparent genre contenders, like The Martian or Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, this is a year in which performers are more likely »

Ryan Gosling: From Mouseketeer and indie darling to Hollywood movie star

4 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sara Hemrajani on the rise of Ryan Gosling

La La Land, the award-tipped ode to musicals from Hollywood’s Golden Age, sees Ryan Gosling dance, sing, wax lyrical about jazz and woo Emma Stone’s aspiring actress in modern day Los Angeles. It’s a terrific performance and the 36-year-old seems to be a lock for one of the best actor Oscar nods. To top that off, he will be hitting the screens across the year in Terrence Malick’s Weightless and the eagerly anticipated Blade Runner sequel.

Showbusiness isn’t new to Gosling – he was a Mousekeeter (alongside pre-teen Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera) in The Mickey Mouse Club, and he played the title role in the Young Hercules series in the late 1990s. Gosling followed television with some smartly chosen indie features and, not too long after, he was primed for the big leagues as a major movie star. »

Christopher Schobert’s Top 10 Films of 2016

2 January 2017 6:52 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Ignore any suggestion that 2016 was not a fantastic year for cinema. Moments linger (the campfire dance in American Honey, the final encounter in Certain Women, the Tracy LettsLogan Lerman debate in Indignation, the first ten minutes of High-Rise, both “Camelot”-soundtracked sequences in Jackie, any scene that featured Ralph Fiennes in A Bigger Splash) and performances resonate (everyone in Moonlight, Emma Stone in La La Land, Kate McKinnon in Ghostbusters).

Choosing ten favorites and five honorable mentions is nasty business; I wish I could have included Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply, a ridiculously underrated film that does not deserve to be remembered as a flop. But it just missed the cut. (Also, I was unable to see Silence in time for end-of-year consideration.) What these fifteen films have in common is the ability to surprise, confound, and delight in equal measure. Let’s see 2017 top that.

Marco Beltrami composing the score for Logan

1 January 2017 9:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like there’s been a change of composer on 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Wolverine movie Logan, with director James Mangold revealing on Twitter (via Film Music Reporter) that Marco Beltrami (3:10 to Yuma, The Wolverine) is now scoring Hugh Jackman’s X-Men swansong.

Back in July, it was reported that Cliff Martinez (Drive, The Neon Demon) had signed on to score the film, so it’s unclear at the moment whether Beltrami has replaced him, or if the original report was inaccurate.

Logan is being helmed by The Wolverine director James Mangold and will see Hugh Jackman joined in the cast by Patrick Stewart as Professor X, along with new additions Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal. It is set for release on March 3rd, »
