The Flash Season 1, Episode 3 ‘Things You Can’t Outrun’
Directed by Jesse Warn
Airs Wednesday at 8pm Et on The CW
In the third episode of The Flash, ‘Things You Can’t Outrun’, the focus shifts away from Barry Allen to shine some light on the supporting cast and it surprisingly works. Caitlin and Cisco both have more to do than they have in the previous two episodes combined and for the first in the series Eddie Thawne feels like an actual character.
Caitlin still suffers from the lost of her fiancée when the particle accelerator exploded and the fear that indecent instilled is brought to Barry’s attention. She has been more frigid than her comrades and now we can see why thanks to a series of flashbacks to that fateful night. Danielle Panabaker does the best work yet in the show and »

Warning: This article contains spoilers about the plot of Godzilla that some readers may prefer to avoid.
Tarantino apparently revealed to Binoche that he was deeply moved by her character Sandra Brody's death in a nuclear plant disaster.
"Well, [Quentin] Tarantino said to me, 'That was the first time I've ever cried during a 3D blockbuster. I had to take off my glasses to wipe away my tears'," the actress told IndieWire.
She added: "I took it as a compliment."
Binoche added that she had quite a different reaction to her brief appearance in Godzilla.
"I don't know how much fun you can have when you have to die in two seconds, and you're the one real woman character and you're dead in three minutes and 45 seconds," she joked.
This summer's "Godzilla" was memorable for a few things, but for cinephiles, it was a blockbuster that rounded up some pretty great acting talent....only to kill them off (Bryan Cranston, Juliette Binoche) or shunt them into the background (Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn). Perhaps one of the most disappointing person to see exit the movie so early was Binoche. The great French actress didn't have much to do except die in the opening minutes, but according to her, it had quite the impact on Quentin Tarantino. "[Quentin] Tarantino said to me, 'That was the first time I've ever cried during a 3D blockbuster. I had to take off my glasses to wipe away my tears.' I took it as a compliment," Binoche told Indiewire. As for the experience of shooting the movie—which she notes she only took thanks to a "beautiful letter" from director Gareth Edwards—she »

Cling. Clang. Crash. Welcome to the category of Best Sound Editing, which awards the creation and integration of artificial sounds into a movie's soundtrack. This distinguishes this category from Best Sound Mixing, which awards the mixing of the film's overall soundtrack. Due to the emphasis on creating artificial sounds, action films and war films tend to do particularly well here. The branch is also not afraid to give a film a standalone nomination (this decade, that has included "All is Lost," "Tron: Legacy," "Drive" and "Unstoppable"). In the not-too-distant past, animated films were also practically annual staples, which is unsurprising given the need to manifest everything you hear in such productions. The sound branch has its favorite contenders who regularly return. Names like Richard Hymns and Wylie Stateman immediately jump to mind. This is likely the case to a greater extent in Sound Editing than Sound Mixing. But every year also sees new nominees. »

Godzilla is a movie that everyone has heard about, even if they have never seen it. There have been so many manifestations of Godzilla in cinema, from the original 1954 version, to his battles with Mothra, Mechagodzilla and Hedorah, to the terrible 1998 Roland Emmerich version, to this one, 2014’s Godzilla, directed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards.
I was excited about this film since first hearing about it last year, and have been following its progression over the past few months as casting and further details were announced. When the first trailer arrived on the scene a few months ago I was further intrigued, and by the time the film was released this week, I was thoroughly anticipating the re-emergence of one of cinemas most famous monsters. »

Four years ago, Gareth Edwards' "Monsters" sent a rocket into the indie sci-fi scene. Made on a tiny budget, with a tiny crew, and with visual effects completed personally by the filmmaker, it was a strange and ingenious picture, a sort of "Before Sunrise" at the end of the world, that proved that in this day and age, your imagination was pretty much the limit in terms of what you could achieve with a low-budget film. It launched the careers of both star Scoot McNairy, and Edwards, who graduated from a tiny-budgeted film to blockbuster "Godzilla" this summer, and is heading to the first "Star Wars" spin-off film. "Monsters" wasn't a giant hit, but it made enough money that British backers Vertigo Films were keen to press ahead with a sequel, and they've finally got their wish, with "Monsters: Dark Continent" premiering this week at the BFI London Film Festival. »

Produced on a shoestring budget with prosumer camera gear and bedroom-made digital effects, Monsters was a minor miracle of a film. Its director Gareth Edwards is now in charge of the Godzilla franchise and working on a Star Wars spinoff, and it's easy to see why when you look back at his 2010 breakthrough. Focusing on two lost souls wandering through Central America's infected zone after an alien invasion, it juxtaposed an intimate human story with bigger sci-fi ambition. Terrence Malick meets monsters from outer space.
Unfortunately, all this subtlety goes out the window for sequel Monsters: Dark Continent, which chooses to make war not love. Edwards remains as executive producer, but directing chores are handed over to Misfits helmer Tom Green, who co-writes with Jay Basu. »

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.
Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...
The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.
The slippery, multi-tentacled creatures seen in Gareth Edwards’ “Monsters” have adapted to Earth’s harshest environments, migrating from their Central American infected zone to other parts of the planet in “Monsters: Dark Continent.” Not so much a sequel as another stultifying character drama set in a world overrun by aliens, this 10-years-later spinoff switches directors and genres, as first-timer Tom Green (building on experience from British TV’s “Misfits” and “Blackout”) helms a taxingly over-earnest war movie set in an unspecified Middle Eastern country, where American soldiers deal with insurgents while the menacing MTRs (as they’re now called) lumber about in the background.
Though the human characters from “Monsters” are long gone and only a modified version of the creatures remain, Green’s film should benefit from brand recognition worldwide, sparking international sales and audience curiosity for a film that otherwise wouldn’t much interest moviegoers.

You remember Bryan Cranston, right? White guy, about average height, tendency to shave his head and scowl out meth-related menace from behind a bushy goatee? Since Breaking Bad ended last year, Cranston’s been floating from project to project, picking up a role here and there but nothing truly memorable since his hair grew back and his perma-grimace softened. Cranston’s added another post-Breaking Bad role to his list: The Infiltrator. Like the title implies, Cranston will play a guy who infiltrates. In this case, that guy would be the real-life Robert Mazur, a Customs and Excise agent who went undercover into the highest circles of Columbian drug cartels, specifically the Medellin cartel headed up by Pablo Escobar. So the absolute highest of the high in South American drug circles. Based on Mazur’s autobiography of the same name, The Infiltrator will be helmed by Brad Furman, who’s got a solid working relationship with Cranston »

Gareth Edwards’ Monsters took the science-fiction world by storm when released in 2010. For not only did he craft a sensational creature feature and post-Apocalyptic romance, he did it for a micro-percent of the usual Hollywood budget. A marvel of ingenuity, aspiration and determination, it redefined what could be achieved by a savvy genre enthusiast when working off-the-leash within the British independent cinema arena. Edwards of course graduated to the A-List with Godzilla and Star Wars projects. And it looks like the same could happen to Tom Green who makes his remarkable feature directing debut with the continuation Monsters: Dark Continent. On a par with the original in terms of skill, confidence and astute fantasy feel, Green crafts his own inspirational vision using Edwards’ concepts, ethos and elegiac universe while expanding the myth in extraordinarily thrilling and thought-provoking ways.

Obi-Wan Kenobi may finally be getting his star moment.
The popular "Star Wars" character has always been an important figure in all six movies, whether he was the young, swashbuckling teacher of Anakin Skywalker or the venerable guiding hand to Luke. Now comes a rumor from Cinelinx that Kenobi will step up from being just a mentor to being the star of the show.
A source told the site that Lucasfilm is "currently developing a trilogy of films centered around the iconic Jedi." These could be among the standalone films announced by the studio, two of which will be directed by Gareth Edwards ("Godzilla") and Josh Trank ("Chronicle").
Previous rumors indicated that the standalone movies would focus on Boba Fett, Yoda, and/or Han Solo - and this may still be the case.
As for these purported Obi-Wan Kenobi films, here's what Cinelinx's source had to say about them: It's not a trilogy, »

Deborah Kaufmann, a senior editor at Paris-based Hachette publisher Calmann-Lévy, has joined Legendary Entertainment as VP Literary Affairs. She will be based in NY and evaluate and pursue book adaptation projects for the studio’s film, TV and digital divisions. She will report to Legendary Evp Creative Affairs Alex Garcia and Evp Scripted Development Peter Johnson.
In addition to Calmann-Lévy, where she oversaw a slate of genres including literary fiction, nonfiction, suspense, crime, thriller, and sci-fi/fantasy (she also ran the sci-fi/fantasy imprint Orbit France. That jibes well with Legendary’s genre tentpole tendencies like recent hit Godzilla and the upcoming Dracula: Untold, which comes out Friday.
Her expertise and nuanced understanding of the literary world will allow us to bolster our upcoming slate of productions with adaptations of even more creative adventures our fans will enjoy across multiple platforms,” Garcia and Johnson said in a statement.

Gareth Edwards. Godzilla was a monster hit. It crossed $200 million at the domestic box office, and sailed past the $520 million mark worldwide. That.s beyond impressive. We.ll even get a sequel, but not until 2018. But that doesn.t mean Edwards. film was flawless. Far from it. And a lot of the movie.s glaring errors can be seen in this educational video below: Cinema Sins often takes movies to tasks in its video series, from The Matrix to Spider-Man 3. In their takedown of Godzilla, the guys like to rattle off vicious movie clichés that Edwards. film relies on . also poking fun at the fact that Godzilla lack scenes with, you know, Godzilla. Ironically, this exhaustive dissection of everything wrong with Godzilla runs nearly 17 minutes in length . meaning it.s longer than the combined amount of minutes that Godzilla is actually in Godzilla. The video also isn.t as »
Even though I loved Gareth Edwards' recent Godzilla reboot, it wasn't without its noticeable flaws. The gang over at Cinema Sins takes aim at the movie in their latest "Everything Wrong" video, and fires. They point out 116 sins. They make good points on some of them and are very nit-picky on others, but that's just how Cinema Sins rolls.

Does Netflix have Eric Cartman’s Awesome-o working in their studios? You remember; he was the lovable robot who could invent Adam Sandler movies out of thin air, like “Adam Sandler falls in love with a Golden Retriever” or “Adam Sandler is stranded on an island and falls in love with a coconut.” If so, that robot has led them to sign a deal with Sandler’s Happy Madison productions to produce and distribute four films, all of which Sandler will star in and produce. Additionally, Netflix will bankroll each of the films, the budget of which on previous Sandler films have averaged roughly $80 million (though where that money goes in the budget is anyone’s guess). This comes days after news that Netflix’s first feature would be the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel.
Sandler commented typically tastefully in a statement via THR, saying, “When these fine people came »
