Writer/director Paul Haggis took home two Academy Awards for his efforts on Crash, the Best Picture winner that examines racial/class tensions in modern Los Angeles through a series of inter-locking stories (note: that’s not at all related to the twisted erotic drama Crash by David Cronenberg); in the time since then, however, Haggis’ output has fallen more within the vicinity of straight-forward genre fare, like his Iraq war drama In the Valley of Elah and script work on James Bond adventure Quantum of Solace and the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 video game.
Third Person, the upcoming movie written and directed by Haggis, is the filmmaker’s return to the inter-weaving narrative thread structure of Crash. It features three stories about couples that are separated by geography (each lives in New York, Paris, and Rome, respectively), but connected through ...

Roman Polanski is a director I cannot quite figure out. I mean, the guy has directed everything from noir like Chinatown to horror like Rosemary's Baby with all sorts of distinct projects in between. His most recent film, Venus In Fur, adapts an award-winning play, much like his previous film, the excellent Carnage. Unlike Carnage, Venus In Fur is subtitled as the film was produced and performed in French. Starring Polanski's wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, and Quantum Of Solace's Mathieu »

Following new Captain America and Muppets movies, Mark looks at the challenges facing a second movie...
This article is spoiler-free, but it may contain some plot details about Muppets Most Wanted and Captain America: The Winter Soldier that you may not want to know if you haven't already seen those films, so proceed carefully.
The sophomore slump is a trend observed in academic study, whereby a decline in morale in second-year students can be linked to new stressors, and disaffection with what previously seemed new.
Its equivalent in the music industry would be the term “difficult second album”, which gets bandied around a lot, largely projecting audience anticipation onto an artist who has enjoyed a successful début, and now has the world snapping at their heels for an equally well-received follow-up.
And, in a film industry where brand-led tentpoles are becoming dominant, the enthusiasm »

Video and press release claiming Come and Dive will be Bond 24's title causes newsroom confusion
Eager James Bond fans have been fooled by a hoax trailer purporting to present the first glimpse of 007's next big screen adventure.
The trailer, which falsely revealed that the 24th official Bond film would be titled Come and Dive, spread quickly across the blogosphere before being taken down by YouTube. It was even accompanied by a fake press release sent out to a number of news organisations, including Total Film and the Los Angeles Times, pretending to be from Sony Pictures. The Japanese-owned Hollywood studio is behind the current iteration of Bond in association with MGM and perennial rights owners Eon Productions.
The press release reportedly revealed: "In Come and Dive, Bond will be swept away by a dangerous love story. As MI6 rises from its ashes, 007 must protect a mysterious stranger and unveil long forgotten secrets. »

If you're an aficionado of cinema's most iconic spy James Bond, then the Bond in Motion exhibition at the London Film Museum, Covent Garden - open seven days a week from March 21 - is a must-see.

"My first foray into Bond would've been 1966 on You Only Live Twice - I became a ninja for the princely sum of 65 pounds a week, which was fabulous in those days, »

While a great show must have good writing, talented actors, impeccable lighting, innovative visuals and so much more, the key to the tone of a show is the music. Music can be used to raise the tension in a thrilling action sequence or build the emotion within a dramatic reveal; it can set the viewer’s blood pounding or reduce them to tears. In sum, the best shows have the best and most powerful music, and Sherlock is no exception.
Courtesy of composers David Arnold (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Independence Day) and Michael Price (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), we have been treated to many a brilliant and gorgeous score through Sherlock’s past three series. Its theme tune has become almost as recognisable as its idiosyncratic visual style, and the soundtrack for Series 3 may be its best and most inventive yet, with its foray into electronic music, »

Hollywood’s obsession with John Grisham-style courtroom thrillers appears to have petered out over the past few years. The last legal drama I truly enjoyed was 2011′s The Lincoln Lawyer, and I can’t even name one cinematic entry in the subgenre that has emerged since then. So, it’s about time someone put their mind to resuscitating the courtroom thriller. The Whole Truth, which will likely release next year, may be the first project I’ve seen that could have a real shot at breathing new life into the subenre, especially now that it’s gained Oscar winner Renee Zellweger in a leading role.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the project »
