What is it? A sexy college professor seduces her student, and then people start dying horrible deaths.

Why see it? I’ve been a Sybil Danning fan for more years than I care to recall, but somehow this one slipped past me before now.

Jay Baruchel praises Batman v Superman as “the world’s most expensive indie film”

20 March 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Actor and comedian Jay Baruchel is currently doing interviews to promote his upcoming sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which is a project he directs and stars in.

During an interview with Joblo, Baruchel was put on the spot to discuss some recent films he has really enjoyed. In addition to mentioning Tom Ford’s noirish thriller Nocturnal Animals (which he described as “gorgeous and compelling”), he bravely brought up the critically destroyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Baruchel praised the blockbuster, saying: “I’ve watched it about seven times… even when I saw the theatrical one and didn’t love it. In its weakest moment, it has more choice, style and commitment to it than the best moment in Captain America: Civil War. I can’t tell you what it’s about or who made it. You watch Batman v Superman you know exactly what it’s about »

Amazon Pilot Reviews: All the 2017 Entries, Ranked Worst to Best

17 March 2017 1:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Amazon released five new pilots on Friday, and it’s up to viewers to determine which ones get picked up. “The Legend of Master Legend,” “Budding Prospects,” “The New V.I.P.’s,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Oasis” make up the 2017 Amazon pilot season. Some are good, some are bad, but the power lies with all of us to determine which are worthy of a full season order. Read our reviews below to get a little insight into each offering, and watch the episodes for yourself right here.

The Legend of Master Legend

John Hawkes can’t catch a break. When he nabbed the lead in Charlie Kaufman’s FX pilot — Charlie Kaufman — it didn’t get picked up. He landed an Oscar nomination for “The Sessions,” but his follow-ups have meant diddly-squat comparatively. Sure, he stole a few scenes in “Lincoln” and got to take part in Amy Schumer’s amazing sketch, »

‘The Batman’: Ben Affleck–Starring Superhero Feature Being ‘Rewritten From Ground Up’ — Report

15 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that negotiations for Matt Reeves to direct “The Batman” had come to a halt. Now, a new report by Slashfilm indicates that the screenplay for the superhero feature starring Ben Affleck is being completely rewritten. Affleck, DC Comics writer and Cco Geoff Johns and Chris Terrio (“Argo,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”) were part of the team who worked on the first version of the screenplay for the follow-up to “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

SXSW Interview — ‘68 Kill’ Is Not Your Dad’s Trailer Trash Porn

14 March 2017 5:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

SXSW Interview — ‘68 Kill’ Is Not Your Dad’s Trailer Trash Porn“All money’s got blood on it, one way or another.”Poster art by Evan Yarbrough“You shovel shit for a living. I suck dick. I’m tired of it. What do you want out of life?” — Liza in ‘68 Kill’

68 Kill is a straight whiskey flick with a whiskey chaser. Trent Haaga (writer, director) is not playing about when it comes to his characters. They’re wild, authentic, and painfully mean. For all intents, he’s made a female exploitation film but gender-swapped nearly all the characters. It’s a story about two victims of abuse trying to find their way in life. Well, trying to find their way to $68,000 and then, maybe, life. There’s a lot more than surface level violence for fun’s sake going on here. But, from the get-go, you need to understand that you’re in for some grindhouse nastiness »

Everyone’s Favorite Everyman John Goodman Receives Walk of Fame Honor

10 March 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With his jocular, yet authoritative voice matched with a wide grin and gleaming eyes, John Goodman could very well be the definition of a character actor. The guy filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen routinely cast as the sidekick who lands some of the most memorable lines in their movies or whom Lorne Michaels frequently calls up to host and guest star on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” With the latter, it helps that he seems comfortable with dressing in drag.

And, despite being a marquee name with a scroll of TV, film, and theater credits, Goodman is perfectly fine with this distinction. “I still consider myself a character actor,” Goodman says. “I think it’s a good thing. I think every actor’s a character actor to a certain extent. Character actor has a lot of different definitions. I’m just a mutt. I just keep going for the bone. »

VFX reel breaks down the fight scenes from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

5 March 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a few VFX reels for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice [watch them here, here and here], and now the folks at Mpc have released another, this time focussing on the fight between Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, along with the climactic showdown as Batman, Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman battle Doomsday. Check it out here…

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Google Maps Will Show You Where Kong's Skull Island Is

3 March 2017 7:40 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Courtesy of WB

Marketing for Kong: Skull Island has gone to new heights.  Now on Google Maps you can locate the island that Kong calls home.  This is not the first time that Google Maps has been used to market a movie, last year Google Maps was used to promote Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them.  That marketing strategy allowed you to locate four areas around New York City and look down on them in street view as if you were in the set of the movie.  Unfortunately there are no pictures of Skull Island or Kong standing tall looking around.  Out of a five star review currently Skull Island only has a three rating. 

If you want to make a difference, be sure to go in and give Skull Island a rating of your own. Tell them about the hospitality of the Skull Crawlers, or how great of »

‘Fargo’ Season 3: New Trailer is Short Yet Chilling (Literally)

The promo, while brief, sets up an intriguing question heading into the third installment of FX’s hit show: What’s so important about this air conditioner unit? The video certainly uses the AC to full effect, as the sound certainly establishes an eerie tone for what should be yet another compelling murder mystery.

While the show’s second installment was set 30 years before the first season, this upcoming chapter will focus on events unfolding in the year 2010, only a few years after the Golden Globe-winning first season, returning viewers to contemporary Minnesota. Fans may expect some »

Benh Zeitlin May Finally Be Shooting His Follow-Up to ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ in the Caribbean

2 March 2017 12:01 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been a question many of us in the indie world have been asking for a couple years now: Where in the world is Benh Zeitlin? The filmmaker had one of the most breakthrough years ever in 2012 when his “Beasts of the Southern Wild” exploded from Sundance winner to four-time Oscar nominee. Zeitlin even knocked out Ben Affleck (“Argo”) to earn a Best Director nomination.

But in the five years since the success of “Beasts,” Zeitlin has remained all but off the grid. It was reported back in 2015 that he was finally getting the wheels going on his next feature, “Wendy,” but here we are two years later with nothing to show for it. Well, it appears the 34-year-old indie director is finally back behind the camera and shooting that project, albeit very quietly. »
