Sarah Polley Calls Weinstein
Sarah Polley — known for directing such films Away From Her and Take This Waltz — has added her name to the growing list of women who've accused Harvey Weinstein of predatory behavior.

In an op-ed posted via The New York Times, Polley details an encounter she says she had with the mogul during a meeting.

Vincenzo Natali to direct the Tremors TV pilot

Deadline is reporting that director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) has signed on to direct the pilot episode of Syfy’s Tremors TV series.

The pilot is written by Andrew Miller (The Secret Circle) and will take place 25 years after the original movie, as Perfection, Nv once again comes under threat from the killer Graboid worms. To defeat them, the town turns to Valentine McKee (the returning Kevin Bacon), who beat them once – but to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol and a delusional hero complex.

Tremors will be Natali’s first pilot, although he has credits on numerous TV shows, including the likes of Hannibal, American Gods, Orphan Black, Westworld, The Strain and Luke Cage.

  • DailyDead
Start looking for higher ground, because the pilot episode for the potential new Tremors series is digging closer to the surface.

Deadline reports the news about Natali's involvement, revealing that the filmmaker behind Cube, Splice, and Haunter has been "tapped to direct" the Tremors pilot episode starring Kevin Bacon, who will reprise his role as handyman-turned-hero Valentine “Val” McKee.

In addition to feature films, Natali has an impressive list of TV directorial credits to his name, having worked behind the camera on Darknet, Hemlock Grove, The Returned, Hannibal, Wayward Pines, Westworld, The Strain, and American Gods.

Natali will work from a script written by showrunner Andrew Miller, who starred as Kazan in Natali's first feature film,

American Gods episode 5 review: Lemon Scented You

Ron Hogan May 29, 2017

American Gods' cast continues to excel with this week's introduction of Crispin Glover...

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Lemon Scented You

It's difficult for American Gods to get much better than it does in Lemon Scented You, if only because it provides viewers with everything they've been waiting for while also giving them something completely unexpected. The show features some spectacular acting heavyweights, and while they've all had plenty of chances to show off their skills, this week gives every major character in the show a showcase moment, and to list them all would be to do a straight recap of the show, minute-by-minute. Suffice to say, I could not be any happier with American Gods than I am this week.

Great Job, Internet!: Here’s what the aliens in Arrival nearly looked like

  • The AV Club
Denis Villeneuve’s new philosophical thriller Arrival derives much of its power and mystery from the design of its aliens and their inexplicable, sliver-shaped starships. Squid-like, elephantine, and usually seen only in deftly rationed glimpses, the Heptapods and their ships were the work of artist Carlos Huante, expanding on notes from the original source story, Ted Chiang’s “Story Of Your Life”. But Huante wasn’t the only designer consulted on the project: artist Peter Konig, who’s lent designs to movies like Jurassic Park, Cloverfield, and Splice, also submitted several ideas for the alien’s ultimate designs.

Konig’s Heptapods tend toward the ethereal, reinforcing the idea of the aliens as inherently aquatic beasts. According to an interview the artist recently gave to CinemaBlend, he was also influenced by the alien warmth of horses’ eyes, a choice reflected in the second of these designs:

The Weekend Warrior 9/2/16: Morgan and The Light Between Oceans

  • LRM Online
Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

As expected, Fede Alvarez’s thriller Don’t Breathe (Screen Gems), starring Jane Levy and Stephen Lang, won the weekend, but it did way more than we predicted, doing better than most movies released in the last weekend of August, winning the weekend with $26.4 million, pretty much double what I predicted. That’s a pretty great testament to the power of Screen Gems’ marketing campaign and that’s more than double what the movie cost to make. Jason Statham’s Mechanic: Resurrection (Summit/Lionsgate) didn’t fare as well as it opened in fifth place with $7.5 million in 2,258 theaters, about where I predicted. Of the more moderate releases, the Obama date movie Southside with You (Roadside Attractions) took in $3 million in around 800 theaters,

Bryan Fuller Offers New "Star Trek" Series Details

Along with offering hope for fans of "Hannibal" earlier today, producer Bryan Fuller has also spoken a bunch about his "Star Trek" TV series currently in the works ahead of an early 2017 launch on CBS' All Access streaming service.

Fuller, who got his start on TV working on episodes of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: Voyager," is returning to the fold and this time has the keys to the kingdom.

John Cusack: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

facebook

twitter

google+

John Cusack has made 17 films in four years. We've found the ones that have gone all-but straight to DVD and watched them...

John Cusack is a bit of a Hollywood oddity. There’s no pattern to the type of movie he will choose to do, so he’s always kept us on our toes. Sure, he’ll make a dumb action movie, but that will often afford him the chance to make a few smaller gambles later on. Up until the last few years he’s played the system very well, but recently his ethic appears to have, um, waned? A little?

Since the heady days of Say Anything and Sixteen Candles he’s come to represent a sort of slightly weird-looking, awkwardly charming, offbeat everyman that men aged 18-49 can look at and go 'me'” - which is fine. There’s a place for that, as

Watch This: Mesmerizing Sci-Fi Short Film 'Eve' Made by Eric Gandois

Time to finally see an impressive short film I've been waiting years to feature here on Fs. This short is called Eve and is made by a French concept artist turned filmmaker named Eric Gandois, making a strong first impression with this work. I originally got see the short in full two years ago, but it has been kept off the internet until now. The film stars Delphine Chaneac, seen in Vincenzo Natali's Splice, as a woman living in a future where there's barely any oxygen left and most of life on our planet has died off. It's entirely dialogue free and uses visuals and her performance to tell the story. I love discovering great work like this and featuring it, as this could be the beginning of an exciting filmmaking career for Gandois. Watch below. Found on Vimeo. Description: A 3D movie set in a futuristic & poetic universe without any dialog.
