No matter how you feel about the films of Brian Taylor — a high-voltage assortment that includes Crank, Gamer, and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance — they all, at first glance, inspire a shared singular question: how the fuck did this get made? Seriously. Just look at what these movies are about: To avoid dying, a British […]

11 November 2016 3:49 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The heavy metal group Slipknot and the cult action film “Crank” may not have much in common face, but creators from both entities have come together to adapt a hyper-violent graphic novel. Slipknot co-founder Shawn Crahan, a.k.a. “Clown,” and “Crank” co-director Mark Neveldine have brought Joe Casey’s “Officer Downe” to the big screen. Written by Casey himself, the film stars Kim Coates (“Sons of Anarchy”) as Officer Downe, a deceased police officer resurrected from the dead to keep fighting crime. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Kanye West’s ‘Fade’ Choreographer Explains The Video’s Wild Metaphorical Plot Twist

30 August 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sunday night during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye surprised fans with the release of his new music video for “Fade.” The clip features a sweaty Teyana Taylor dancing in an empty gym, a la “Flashdance,” before turning into a cat, surrounded by sheep, leaning on her fiancé, Cleveland Cavs player Iman Shumpert.

The artistic and metaphorical plot twist surprised many who found the end scene confusing, but the video’s choreographer, Jae Blaze, told Pitchfork that it symbolized fierceness.

“I think the vision behind that was how amazing Teyana is, and how she’s been on the rise, and how she’s working,” Blaze told the site. “And you are now seeing her blossom into this fierce lioness, this fierce cat. She has worked her way into that, and she’s in a great position right now in her life. She has her family. She’s being held down by her amazing husband. »

New to Streaming: ‘Sing Street,’ ‘Equals,’ ‘Belladonna of Sadness,’ ‘Mustang,’ and More

15 July 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Belladonna of Sadness (Eiichi Yamamoto)

It all begins with Once Upon a Time. Such a simple introduction for Belladonna of Sadness, a 1973 Japanese animated feature whose newfound legacy includes a decades-long disappearance, a dramatic re-emergence, and a growing reputation as a frenzied, pornographic freakout. The final entry in anime elder statesman Osamu Tezuka‘s erotic Animerama trilogy has remained largely unknown to even the most die-hard cult cinephiles, »

8 Movies We’re Excited to See at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival

31 May 2016 4:01 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday, June 1st, and this year’s Nightfall lineup looks to be yet another strong selection of genre films set to thrill festival-goers night after night.

For those of you in the southern California area, the 2016 Laff runs through Thursday, June 9th and is calling the ArcLight Culver City Cinema home this year. Here’s a look at what we’re anticipating once the Laff begins later this week, and for more information on the festival, please visit:

http://www.filmindependent.org/la-film-festival/

Abattoir (directed by Darren Lynn Bousman)

Full disclosure: Abattoir was edited by my significant other, so I am certainly biased, but my enthusiasm for the film comes from my excitement to see Bousman return to the hardboiled world of horror after working on The Devil’s Carnival musicals and his comedy-infused segment in last year’s Tales of Halloween anthology. »

Crank: revisiting a Jason Statham classic, 10 years on

It’s been 10 years since Neveldine/Taylor’s Crank was released. We look back at what might be Jason Statham’s best film...

Whenever we interview anyone for Den of Geek, we try to throw in a curveball of a final question by asking them, “What’s your favourite Jason Statham movie?” Obviously, there are plenty to choose from, but to date, the most common answer is Crank. Simon Pegg loves it. James McAvoy loves it. Rupert Grint loves it. The list goes on, and for good reason: it’s bonkers, and brilliant, and almost completely unique.

The contrivance that kickstarts Crank’s action is a great one: hitman Chev Chelios (The Statham, naturally) has been poisoned by a rival gangster, injected with a synthetic compound that blocks his adrenaline receptors. To stay alive, he’ll need to jack himself up with as many stimulants as possible. »

Hardcore Henry and videogames' influence on film

Batman V Superman, Scott Pilgrim, Hardcore Henry and more show the growing influence of videogames on film....

This article contains very mild spoilers for Hardcore Henry, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and 10 Cloverfield Lane.

For a while now, 'it's like watching somebody else play a video game' has been a nifty shorthand for film critics. Even though the popularity of playthrough videos, from YouTube to dedicated networks like Twitch, means that a lot of us might now be watching other people play the video games, we understand the implication whether we agree with it or not.

It's the same reason why there has arguably never been a great movie based directly on a video game, as these tend to transplant story and character elements into a big screen medium at the expense of the personal player experience, whereby you can actually inhabit and control a character. »

Go on a Rampage in New Trailer For First-Person Actioner ‘Hardcore Henry’

7 March 2016 8:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This year brings a number of major-budget action features, each attempting to one-up their predecessors in order to get audiences in theaters. However, before the summer blockbuster season kicks off we’ll get one that seems most aligned to the video-game experience. Ilya Naishuller‘s Hardcore follows a cybernetic super-soldier who kicks, punches and parkours his way across Russia to save his wife from a psychotic paramilitary psychic bent on world domination. And it’s entirely in first-person point-of-view. Produced by Timur Bekmambetov and starring Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennet, Andrey Dementiev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova, a new trailer has now landed.

We said in our review, “While perhaps not presented in a stylistic manner friendly to most Vulgar Auteurists, the film manages to pull off a hat-trick of comparisons to the movement’s deities. The rough-and-tumble cyborg mayhem recalls John HyamsUniversal Soldier pictures, the final fight »

Theatrical Trailer For First-Person Actioner ‘Hardcore Henry’ Starring Sharlto Copley

11 February 2016 5:10 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While we get a handful of videogame adaptations this year, including Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed, we imagine few will actually replicate the experience like Ilya Naishuller‘s Hardcore. Produced by Timur Bekmambetov and starring Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennet, Andrey Dementiev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova, it follows a cybernetic super-soldier who kicks, punches and parkours his way across Russia to save his wife from a psychotic paramilitary psychic bent on world domination. And it’s entirely in first-person point-of-view.

We said in our review, “While perhaps not presented in a stylistic manner friendly to most Vulgar Auteurists, the film manages to pull off a hat-trick of comparisons to the movement’s deities. The rough-and-tumble cyborg mayhem recalls John HyamsUniversal Soldier pictures, the final fight of hundreds of indistinguishable robot cronies is inevitably similar to a recent Paul W.S. Anderson film, and — even if not capturing their »
