Netflix: Full List of Movies Arriving in July 2017 Includes ‘Rogue One’ and ‘Punch-Drunk Love’

21 June 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix has announced the list of films that will be available to stream in July. The list includes new never-before-seen original films, as well as documentaries, comedies, animated titles and some classic movies. Check out some of our favorite new offerings below, along with the complete list of all the new additions.

1. “To the Bone” (available July 14)

Marti Noxon’s feature directorial debut was a hit out of Sundance, where the Lily Collins-starring drama about eating disorders won over audiences for its nimble ability to tell a compelling dramatic story interspersed with well-earned humor. Sketched from Noxon’s own experiences with anorexia and bolstered by a star turn from the always-reliable Collins, the film is both important and entertaining, and it should be able to reach a very wide audience on the streaming platform. Do not miss it.

2. “Punch-Drunk Love” (available July 1)

Paul Thomas Anderson’s lauded 2002 romantic dramedy features Adam Sandler in one of his few “hey, this guy can really act!” roles and includes some of the auteur’s most indelible shots and richest observations about life and love. It’s a modern classic, and now it can be piped right into your home. I’m lookin’ at your Netflix queue and I just wanna smash it. I just wanna fuckin’ smash it with a sledgehammer and squeeze it. It’s so pretty.

3. “Chasing Coral”  (available July 14)

Jeff Orlowski won the U.S. Documentary Audience Award at Sundance earlier this year for his newest feature, a stunning documentary about the fight to protect coral reefs from becoming extinct. Featuring breathtaking and distressing underwater footage, the movie puts into perspective just how endangered coral reefs are and tracks the effort to save them.

4. “Lion” (available July 9)

This heart-wrenching true story was an awards season juggernaut earlier this year, featuring stellar turns from Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel. Based on the unbelievable life of young Saroo Brierley, the feature follows his separation from his family and his startling trip back to them many years later, aided by — for real — Google Maps and his own indomitable heart. Bring tissues. 

5. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (available July 18)

The very first standalone “Star Wars” spinoff follows a motley crew of rogues, criminals, rebels, and scallawags as they attempt to steal the plans to the monstrous Death Star in a bid to really just totally stick it to the Empire and Darth Vader. Knowing how it ends — they get them! and…some other stuff, too! — doesn’t dilute its tension and creativity, and it features a banger of an ensemble cast. Let this one tide you over before the next entry in the rapidly expanding movie universe.

6. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (available July 1)

The early part of the month is heavy on kid-leaning classics, from “Free Willy” to “The Mighty Ducks,” but it’s hard to top the potency of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic. Gather the whole family around the TV and get heavy on the Reese’s Pieces, and enjoy one of the best films ever made about childhood, friendship, and letting go.

Paddington 2 Trailer Has the Iconic Bear Going Back to Work

30 May 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just days after The Weinstein Company set a January 2018 release date for the upcoming sequel Paddington 2, the studio had unveiled the first teaser trailer for this upcoming sequel. Along with the trailer, The Weinstein Company has also unveiled the first nine photos featuring Paddington Bear, along with a first look at new characters Knuckles McGinty (Brendan Gleeson), Phoenix Buchanan (Hugh Grant) and the returning members of the Brown family.

The Weinstein Company debuted this new trailer earlier today, which opens with Paddington Bear starting his new job as a window cleaner, but it doesn't go too well. After realizing that he can't lift the bucket of soapy water needed to clean these windows up the ladder, he devises a pulley system of sorts, which doesn't work out as planned for this beloved bear. This trailer also gives us a glimpse of Peter Capaldi's Mr. Curry, who returns from the original movie, »

'The Zookeeper's Wife': Film Review

20 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Uncomfortable as it is to admit, there have been so many mediocre Holocaust movies post-Schindler's List that a certain fatigue has set in.

Exceptions exist, of course — films like Roman Polanski's The Pianist or Lajos Koltai's Fateless, which, through their clarity of vision and lack of sentimentality, force us to see the horror with fresh eyes. But most screen depictions of this defining 20th-century atrocity, no matter their angle, rely on predictable emotional, visual and musical cues to coax the audience toward weepy catharsis (see: Life is Beautiful, Jakob the LiarThe Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The Book Thief, Woman in »

‘The Space Between Us’ Review: Teen-Driven Family Pic Finds There Is Life On Mars, At Least In The Movies

3 February 2017 3:19 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Take a bit of The Martian, throw in E. T. The Extra Terrestrial, add a touch of Starman, sprinkle it with Romeo And Juliet and a bit of The Fault In Our Stars and you have the recipe for The Space Between Us, a new sci-fi teen romance. The movie owes much to an engaging performance from Asa Butterfield (Hugo, The Boy In The Striped Pajamas) as teen-aged Gardner, who has grown up and lived his whole life on Mars. His mother, an astronaut, was part of a mission to the Red… »

The Lrm Interview with Asa Butterfield on The Space Between Us

2 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

When you’ve worked with Martin Scorsese at the age of 13, there might not be very far you can go as an actor, but Asa Butterfield--who turns 20 in a couple months—has continued to have a thriving career since Hugo. (Maybe that’s because, like Daniel Radcliffe, he was discovered by Harry Potter producer David Heyman for a film called The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.)

Butterfield went on to star in the movie based on Orson Scott Card’ novel Ender’s Game and in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Children last year, and he’s back in the sci-fi realm for The Space Between Us.

In the movie, Butterfield plays Gardner Elliot, the first human born on Mars, who comes to earth to meet up with his online pen-pal “Tulsa” (Britt Robertson) and try to find out who his real father is. It’s »

Interview: Directors Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engström on Taboo

7 January 2017 3:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach chats with directors Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engström about Taboo

Back in November, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk to the directors of the new show TabooKristoffer Nyholm (who directed episodes 1-4) and Anders Engström (who directed episodes 5-8).

Speaking with Kristoffer Nyholm, he revealed what attracted him to the project. “I read the first two scripts. I thought they were fabulous. I had another project at that moment so I was unsure whether I was going to do it. Tom Hardy said ‘do you want to do this with me? Do you want to walk down that road?’ He said ‘we will go to the edge but we might fail’. I thought that was beautiful. I thought it was a personal story for Tom to do. He had strong ideas and instincts about where it was going.”

Nyholm was directing the first four episodes, »

Interview: Tom Hardy and Chips Hardy talk Taboo

3 January 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach chats with Tom Hardy and Chips Hardy about Taboo

The new BBC series Taboo gets underway this weekend, and we caught up with the show’s creators Tom and Chips Hardy at the press junket, where they revealed that they have been working on the project for the last few years, and the initial idea came out of a conversation between the two.

“Tom and I wanted to explore a particular character that he had in mind,” said Chips. “We tried to create a world in which that character could operate. The character was a kind of conflicted hero. We also talked about the notion of landmark period drama. We wanted to make a period drama like the old ones. We didn’t have an absolute plan. It was always television.”

Tom said that there was not a clear time period in which the story would have taken »

Interview: Steven Knight on Taboo

3 January 2017 6:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach chats with Steven Knight about his new series Taboo starring Tom Hardy

Back in November, we had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Steven Knight about his new show Taboo, which features Tom Hardy in the lead role. When initially meeting Hardy to discuss writing Taboo, Knight took the opportunity to get Hardy involved with his movie Locke, stating that: “We came to an informal agreement that he would do Locke if I did Taboo. That’s how it began.”

Taboo was originally envisioned by Tom Hardy and his father Chips Hardy who had been developing this idea for several years. Knight revealed that the character of James Delaney and the historical period is what attracted him to the project: “I loved the possibilities of what this idea had that an adventurer goes to Africa comes back he’s done some terrible things. Then we follow his life. »
