Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Is Headed To Netflix

22 February 2017 6:12 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the climate of the film industry, perhaps this was inevitable. Martin Scorsese’s next film, the long gestating “The Irishman” is heading to Netflix, in one of the streaming service’s biggest power plays.

The project was originally set up for domestic distribution at Paramount, Scorsese’s longtime home, for pictures like “Shutter Island,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” and “Silence,” with indie upstarts Stx acquiring significant foreign rights last summer for $50 million.

Fireworks Wednesday (Asghar Farhadi)

After a festival tour back in 2006, Asghar Farhadi’s Fireworks Wednesday was theatrically re-released by the newly established Grasshopper Films, and now it’s arriving on DVD. The drama is another precisely calibrated, culturally specific demonstration of Farhadi’s skills in constructing empathy machines. Further in line with the director’s filmography, this story has a nesting-doll structure that combines ingrained social hierarchies, domestic drama, and a tragic intersection of misunderstandings. And while it »

House Of Cards season 5: everything we know so far

21 February 2017 3:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Feb 21, 2017

House of Cards will return to Netflix in May. Here's all the news about season 5 that's fit to print...

Remember when, in our darkest moments, the idea of Frank Underwood as President of the United States seemed like the most nightmarish thing imaginable? Oh, how naive we were once upon a time!

See related  Shane Black: a career retrospective Zack Snyder interview: Batman V Superman

Almost miraculously, and to the benefit of the viewers (if not their country), Frank Underwood is in business and doing fine in House Of Cards season 5. Well, at least he's still in his business of choice, which is power - and given the shake-ups behind the scenes, he will continue to be so for some time, despite the ominous title of the show.

Yep, House Of Cards is coming back - but with a new showrunner in place the show »

A Cure For Wellness Review

20 February 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

To live for the weekend is a lifestyle and routine so many get unwittingly caught up in, and while Gore Verbinski’s latest endeavour A Cure For Wellness thrives in its supernaturalism, it’s grounded, persistently, by its commitment to the sheer mundanity of every day life, and it’s what makes this such an absorbing, contemporary horror.

Dane DeHaan plays Lockhart, an ambitious executive striving to get to the very top, by any means necessary, and when caught up in fraudulent activity, he can escape punishment by thrusting the company’s CEO into the limelight, and so is sent on a brief vacation to the Swiss Alps, to retrieve his boss from an elusive, idyllic wellness centre, run by the shady doctor Volmer (Jason Isaacs). The spa retreat specialises in treatment by water, though as Lockhart discovers, the methods are far from pure, and though initially anticipating a brief, »

Exclusive Video Interview: Jason Isaacs On A Cure For Wellness

18 February 2017 8:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A Cure For Wellness is one of the most twisted, ambitious genre movies to grace mainstream theaters in quite a while. Honestly, I have to ask – how did Gore Verbinski get this wicked fairy tale made? Call it Lovecraftian Shutter Island, or come up with an equally descriptive identifier. No matter what you say, Verbinski deserves acclaim just for pushing cognizant limits of gonzo absurdity far past blockbuster boundaries. It might have been a better 100-minute movie versus the current 140-something-minute running time, but faults be damned. If you love your mysteries slippery, wet and deranged, check out my review of Verbinski’s latest to get the spoiler-free skinny.

This past week, I was able to sit down with the cast and crew to discuss their new spa-getaway nightmare. Participating in video interviews in New York City were stars Dane DeHaanJason Isaacs and Mia Goth, along with director Gore Verbinski. »

Review: A Cure For Wellness [Monte’s Take]

17 February 2017 2:19 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Director Gore Verbinski has crafted quite an interesting career. After striking genre gold with the remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu, orchestrating one of Disney’s most successful franchises with Pirates of the Caribbean, and continuing his collaboration with Johnny Depp on the animated film Rango and the reboot of The Lone Ranger, Verbinski was poised to do whatever he wanted to do with his next film, and it doesn’t take long to realize this quality in the director’s new film, A Cure for Wellness.

For nearly two and a half hours, Verbinski compiles a beautiful, confounding, and chaotic medley of his favorite and most influential film scenes recreated. One moment you are whisked away on a train ride through the Swiss Alps in a moment of stunning scenery, the next you are offered images of unnerving and repulsive situations. It’s undeniable that Verbinski and director »

‘A Cure For Wellness’ Review

17 February 2017 7:03 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I think when most people heard about the dissolution of the Bioshock film adaptation, which was to be helmed by A Cure for Wellness director Gore Verbinski, our genre-loving hearts deflated a bit. Once the trailers came out for A Cure for Wellness it seemed like we may be getting some leftover concept designs from that failed adaption into this film. Verbinski’s 10th film in the span of 20 years is a bold film. There is really no doubt that this man has such a strong visual sense that he still remains relevant to talk about after 2 decades into his career.

A Cure for Wellness stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Lockhart who is in a high-pressure financial job and in a position where he has climbed up the ladder and works himself non-stop to have done so and plans on continuing to do so until he gets to play with the big boys. »

'A Cure for Wellness' Review: Wtf Spooky-By-Numbers Horror Loses Its License to Ill

16 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A room full of studio executives sit around a table. Each of them has a small pile of paper scraps and a pen. They jot down dozens of things that they believe fit the definition of universally creepy: "Old, European Art Deco health spas"; "lank-haired girls with Vitamin E deficiencies"; "stern-faced people speaking German"; "iron lungs"; "eels." They then proceed to take round-robin turns pulling these concepts out of a hat, depositing a random handful picks into a manila envelope. When the package's recipients – let's call them screenwriter Justin Haythe »

Arrival (Denis Villeneuve)

Within the alien subgenre, there lies another. Therein, knowledge is treasure and the fifth dimension is love. The major rule: once the mystery and the chills have subsided, the revelations are enlightening and the welcomes warm. Thankfully, Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival is more worthwhile than that. The film juggles a bit of world-building with meaty, compelling characters while trying to make linguistics look cool. No easy task, but the film does so in a breeze »

Interview: John Caroll Lynch for The Founder

8 February 2017 12:17 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In The Founder, John Carroll Lynch stars as Mac McDonald – who, partnered with his brother Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) – created the first McDonald’s restaurant in California in the 1940s. Based on a true story, the new film from director John Lee Hancock (Saving Mr. Banks), follows the trail of how traveling salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), impressed by the brothers’ innovative assembly-line approach to the kitchen, maneuvered himself into a position where he was ultimately able to take control of the company, transforming himself in the process to the ‘founder’ of an economic empire.

The Founder

Appearing in over 50 films and television productions, John Carrol Lynch first sprang to prominence in 1996 with the Coen brothers’ critically acclaimed, Fargo. His films include Gothika, Things We Lost in the Fire, Zodiac, Gran Torino, Shutter Island, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. On television, Lynch has starred in such popular series as The Drew Carey Show »

Review: A Cure For Wellness is an Audacious Gothic Nightmare from Gore Verbinski

7 February 2017 9:31 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There is a level of audacity to Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness that I can’t help but admire. On paper, it’s not the type of film that generally gets a big studio push in this day and age, but yet, 20th Century Fox is going all out for Verbinski’s weirdly surreal exploration of the one thing none of us can escape—our mortality—and I dig that he once again takes an avant-garde route to give us a grandiose, epic gothic horror movie that wears its influences on its sleeves, yet at times feels like nothing we’ve ever experienced before.

If you distill Cure down to its basic elements, though, it’d be safe to say it feels like if Hammer Films did their own version of Shutter Island, but really, that only accounts for about 30% of what Verbinski achieves here. The bottom line is, »

Cameraperson (Kirsten Johnson)

A travelogue through one artist’s subconscious, Cameraperson is perhaps the most plural film of 2016 – a formal, tonal, situational, and pacing exercise that lulls viewers into thinking it’s set on one thing before turning towards seemingly new territory. And it never feels out-of-balance because director Kirsten Johnson has, by building this film around moments that “marked” her, granted such an intimate experience that it almost feels wrong to intellectualize much of anything that’s going on here, »

A Cure for Wellness Review: An Insane and Unhinged Thriller

7 February 2017 11:14 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Gore Verbinski has spent a long time making very expensive studio blockbusters, including three Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the disastrous reboot of The Lone Ranger. However, he did direct the most successful horror remake of all-time with The Ring and it is easy to forget that this man knows how to tackle a genre flick. With A Cure for Wellness, he is once again let loose on the horror/thriller genre and for better or for worse, he seemed to be totally unconstrained. This has resulted in an absolutely crazy, unhinged, unsettling and surely divisive movie. It is probably the most off-the-rails crazy, mainstream studio movie audiences are going to have the chance to see all year.

20th Century Fox's latest centers on an ambitious young finance executive who is sent to bring back his company's CEO from a very mysterious and remote "wellness center" in the Swiss Alps. »

A Cure For Wellness Review

7 February 2017 8:17 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mortality. A constant unknown that plagues the human condition. We try to delay its effects, but no matter what – someday – the Grim Reaper will coming knocking. Sorry to start off on such a dark note, but these thoughts directly provoke Gore Verbinski’s cold-open for A Cure For Wellness. The director urges viewers towards personal fulfillment, breaking the shackles of our work-until-death mentalities. Do you want to be the guy who croaks at his desk just to earn one more Employee Of The Month award? Thus is the introduction of Verbinski’s cult-noir mystery with Lovecraftian appeal, wholly committed to resurrecting a cinematic weirdness that has escaped mainstream cinema for far too long.

On a serious note – who greenlit this picture, and how did Verbinski pitch such a strange big-budget puzzler? You just don’t see ambitious mindf&#kery like this being given studio priority anymore. Everything starts with a very Shutter Island vibe, »

Film Review: ‘A Cure for Wellness’

7 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Everybody’s sick with something in “A Cure for Wellness,” be it vanity or avarice or envy, though it’s clear that whatever regimen the mysterious Dr. Volmer has devised isn’t helping one bit with their recovery. As played by Jason Isaacs, who hovers about the movie’s ominous Swiss sanitarium, Dr. Volmer comes across like a character straight out of a classic American International Pictures horror show, and that’s precisely the vibe director Gore Verbinksi appears to be going for in a movie that, while creepy, won’t do much to dig him out of the hole he made for himself with “The Lone Ranger.”

Unfortunately, it feels as if Verbinski has failed to grasp the most important lessons of that misstep, delivering once again an extravagant B-movie homage that is longer, darker, and more unwieldy than the genre demands, while failing to produce a character that »

Review: ‘A Cure for Wellness’ Dazzles and Baffles in Equal Measure

7 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The asylum-based film is a fairly interesting mini-genre to deconstruct. These movies almost always deal with perceptions of reality, questions of the self, and an innate fear of those in positions of power who operate in worlds of the ethereal. The question of the protagonist’s madness is almost always central, and the uncertainty over whether their paranoia is unfounded or justified is from where the story often derives its most potent thrills.

A Cure for Wellness, while not taking place in an asylum per se, hews so closely to and borrows so readily from the genre that it is impossible not to take the film as such. Which makes some of the narrative choices hard to understand, as they ultimately drain the uncertain paranoia from its story in exchange for ever-escalating set pieces composed of bizarre, disturbing imagery. It is all of the harrowing horror of an asylum film with none of the deeper, »
