Nicolas Winding Refn Presents Series Is Releasing The ‘RoboCop’ Soundtrack On Vinyl

21 May 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A certain type of vintage genre score has rightfully earned its place in film music pantheon —think the haunting pulsations of John Carpenter, the woozy dreamscapes of Tangerine Dream, the throbbing disco-synth anxieties of Giorgio Moroder —and that atmospheric spirit as such is currently being channeled by filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn. The director recontextualized the Pet Shop Boys for a new generation with his bruising psycho prison film “Bronson”; he's turned throwback synth artist Johnny Jewel into a kind of modern rock star in the field thanks to his “Drive” score (the film's star Ryan Gosling has turned into a devotee too); and he's also helped transform Steven Soderbergh-collaborator Cliff Martinez (“Only God Forgives,” “Solaris”) into one of the most sought after modern film composers. While Refn is creatively indebted to the mondo-exotica genre films of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s and their soundtracks, the filmmaker has used his recent cache to shine a. »

Refn's "Neon Demon" To Shoot At 60Fps?

17 May 2015 5:52 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Several years ago Peter Jackson attempted to test public reaction to higher frame rates with special screenings of the first "The Hobbit" film. Running at a higher 48 frames-per-second as compared to the usual 24, the effect solved some of the problems of 3D but resulted in a Very mixed reaction from audiences.

Outside of Jackson's trilogy though, not many other filmmakers have dared to try it. James Cameron intends to use 48Fps for the "Avatar" sequels, whilst Ang Lee is currently filming his drama "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" which will run at a whopping 120Fps.

Now, "Drive" and "Only God Forgives" filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is having a go with word that his new film "The Neon Demon" will be at least partly shot at 60Fps. The news comes from a photo that landed on Instagram this week (via Final Reel):

Men, Motors & Meltdowns: A ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Feature

15 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you stick cars and explosions in a movie, men will go and see it. The Fast & Furious franchise has clocked up a ridiculous number of miles at the box office and now another series is about to join the fun, set in the future but resurrected from a seemingly-dormant past.

Mad Max: Fury Road takes us back to the dusty, post-apocalyptic world of Max Rockatansky, a man as burned by tragedy as by the relentless Outback sun. Originally played by Mel Gibson, this time round rising Brit Tom Hardy adopts the mantle (and indeed the accent) for a blistering thrill ride of machine-based mayhem that has had even the most genteel critics foaming at the mouth.

Though Charlize Theron provides equal star power as Imperator Furiosa, it’s safe to say this film is largely one for the boys. So with that in mind, »

Movie News: First Look at Elle Fanning in 'The Neon Demon'; 'The Craft' Is Getting a Remake

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Neon Demon: The first look at Elle Fanning in The Neon Demon is quite glamorous, which is entirely intentional. She stars as an aspiring model who is "devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women." Nicolos Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) is directing, so we can expect an unsparing look at the scene in Los Angeles. Jena Malone, Christina Hendricks, and Keanu Reeves also star. [TwitchFilm]     The Craft: Supernatural horror movie The Craft will be remade by Sony Pictures, which has set Leigh Janiak (last year's well-received thriller Honeymoon) to direct a new version; she will also co-write the script with Honeymoon partner Phil Graziadei. The original starred Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell, and Rachel True as Catholic...

From Bullitt to Mad Max: Hit top gear with 9 of cinema's greatest car chases

14 May 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After 30 years away, Mad Max makes a blistering return to our screens this week with Tom Hardy taking on the role made famous by Mel Gibson back in the '80s.

Director George Miller's films are notorious for one thing: tyre-screening, metal-crunching, gear-shifting car chases. To mark Max's comeback, Digital Spy takes a look at some of cinema's greatest ever vehicular pursuits below...

1. Bullitt (1968)

Tearing through San Francisco in a Ford Mustang 390 Gt, Steve McQueen pretty much re-wrote the rule book when it comes to movie car chases in his '60s classic Bullitt. Nobody has looked this cool behind the wheel on the big screen before or since.

2. The Italian Job (1969)

Michael Caine's swinging '60s caper is a staple of Bank Holiday viewing, and even as it approaches its 50th anniversary it still holds up as great viewing. The Italian Job turned an unlikely car - »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Car Chases

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 2 of 10: A good car chase works for completely different reasons than its bipedal counterpart. Where a foot chase is more intimate, desperate, and rough, car chases are cool, exciting, almost romantic. Here the journey overwhelms destination: tough guys (and girls) driving sleek machines at impossible speeds. And unlike foot chases, there are no real limitations on where they can go or what they can do—sometimes cars can even fly.

3 Reasons You Need to Watch Ryan Gosling Eat Cereal

5 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Until today, I didn’t fully understand the Ryan Gosling obsession that America seems to have. What made me finally see the light? It wasn’t "The Notebook", it wasn’t "Drive"…it was a bowl of cereal. That’s right, today the heartthrob actor posted a Vine of himself eating a spoonful of cereal, and it will be the best thing you watch all day. Here are three reasons why: 1. It’s an homage to a bigger project: “Ryan Gosling Wont Eat His Cereal” Scottish filmmaker Ryan McHenry created a series of artistic Vine videos in which he would try to feed a spoonful of cereal to Ryan Gosling as he acted on screen in some of his best-known roles. McHenry coordinated it so that just as his spoon was approaching on-screen Gosling’s mouth, Gosling would recoil, disinterested, or even swat the spoon away. These Vines are extremely charming, »

Boba Fett movie planned as next ‘Star Wars’ spinoff

5 May 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

More Star Wars spinoffs are inevitable. And everyone in the universe, from Han to Chewie to Lando to Leia, could all have one. Gareth Edwards is working on Rogue One, which in 2016 will tell the story of how rebels stole the plans for the Death Star, ultimately leading to the events of A New Hope.

The one character who we expected would receive a spinoff, but maybe is the only character that shouldn’t get one, is Boba Fett, the mysterious, iconic, helmeted bounty hunter from the original trilogy. Of course, there’s a rich, potential history of bounty hunters throughout the galaxy far, far away, and it only stands to reason that Boba Fett would be the perfect vessel to explore him. But when you take off that helmet and he becomes yet another character, do we lose that luster?

Whatever the case, The Wrap confirmed late Monday that »

Watch: Ryan Gosling Eats His Cereal, Pays Tribute To Meme Creator

5 May 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more oddball memes in recent memory has been Ryan Gosling Won't Eat His Cereal. “I was watching 'Drive' and eating cereal one day, and it kind of looked like Ryan Gosling was staring at my cereal,” Ryan McHenry told EW in 2013 about the genesis of what became a hit on Vine. But sadly, McHenry passed away on Sunday following a battle with osteosarcoma, and Gosling himself has paid tribute. The actor hit Vine with simple clip of him digging into a bowl of cereal, and followed it up with a post on Twitter sending his condolences to the McHenry family. Check it all out below along with a video compilation of Gosling not eating his damn cereal. My heart goes out to all of Ryan McHenry's family and friends. Feel very lucky to have been apart of his life in some small way. — Ryan Gosling »

Watch: Exploring Color and Conflict in 'The Guest' Video Essay

4 May 2015 8:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Although it didn't make my top ten list of last year (though it did make Brad's), Adam Wingard's action-thriller The Guest emerged as one of my favorite films -- and one of the biggest surprises -- of 2014. That may not be true for all, but if nothing else it is packed to the brim with style, utilizing a vibrant color palette and a synth-heavy pop soundtrack to imbue the retro feel of 1980s-era John Carpenter. amz asin="B00NO834N0" size="small"To me, The Guest is as much a nod to Carpenter's work and other B-movie thrillers as it is the uptempo cousin to Nicolas Winding Refn's slow-burn thriller Drive, and in the video essay below, Vimeo user Matt Marlin (featured for a second time this morning) makes this connection, too. Part of his series "Framing the Picture", Marlin explores Wingard's use of color and, more specifically, »

8 Reasons Why Tom Hardy Will Be The Biggest Actor Of 2015

1 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Every so often, the stars will align in one particular year for an actor who’ll at last see their movie star status go supernova. In 2011, it was Ryan Gosling’s turn – as Drive, The Ides Of March and Crazy, Stupid, Love. finally tipped him over into superstardom – as well as Michael Fassbender’s, with X-Men: First Class, Jane Eyre and Shame bringing the Irish actor to the attention of the moviegoing public at large.

In 2015, it looks as though the year will belong to Tom Hardy. Already an actor of considerable acclaim amongst critics and serious cinema fans, Hardy’s impressive-looking line-up of upcoming projects this year should see his fame hit peak levels, as all the talk of him being “the best actor of his generation” at last reaches the masses.
