A Married Woman (Jean-Luc Godard)

A Married Woman is an often overlooked masterwork from Godard’s most productive period. The plot appears to be simple: Charlotte (Macha Méril) is a young married woman having an affair with an actor. When she discovers that she is pregnant, she must decide which man is the father and which man she will stay with. In Godard’s hands, however, the film, described as a film about a woman’s beauty and the ugliness of her world, »

The Witch (Robert Eggers)

“We will conquer this wilderness. It will not consume us,” foreshadows our patriarch in the first act of The Witch, a delightfully insane bit of 17th century devilish fun. As if Ingmar Bergman and Ken Russell co-directed Kill ListRobert Eggers’ directorial debut follows a God-fearing Puritan family banished from their settlement in a colonial New England, only to have their deep sense of faith uprooted when our title character has her way with their fate. »

Netflix has announced another original series, which is being produced with support from Skydance Television. It's a cyberpunk show called Altered Carbon, based on Richard K. Morgan’s novel of the same name. RoboCop reboot, Suicide Squad and The Killing actor Joel Kinnaman is set to star.

Here’s a plot summary for the show, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter...

Joel Kinnaman Cast As The Lead In Netflix’s Adaptation Of Altered Carbon

12 May 2016 2:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robocop reboot star Joel Kinnaman has been cast as the lead in Netflix’s upcoming Altered Carbon adaptation. The show has been written and created by Laeta Kalogridis (screenwriter on Terminator Genisys and Shutter Island), with Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) on board to direct the pilot.

Based off the book of the same name by Richard K. Morgan, the series has a bit of a doozy of a set-up, so strap in: the story is set 500 years in the future where mankind has figured out how to digitally download consciousness and upload it into a new body. Since physical death isn’t so much a big deal anymore, elite U.N. warrior Takeshi Kovacs has shrugged off the afterlife a few times. But after one particularly nasty death, he gets plunged into a giant conspiracy and a mysterious murder case that could bring everything crashing down.

In a Lonely Place (Nicholas Ray)

When a gifted but washed-up screenwriter with a hair-trigger temper—Humphrey Bogart, in a revelatory, vulnerable performance—becomes the prime suspect in a brutal Tinseltown murder, the only person who can supply an alibi for him is a seductive neighbor (Gloria Grahame) with her own troubled past. The emotionally charged In a Lonely Place, freely adapted from a Dorothy B. Hughes thriller, is a brilliant, turbulent mix of suspenseful noir and devastating melodrama, »

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, Gomes continually seeks to mutate and complicate his of age-of-austerity saga. »

Showtime Developing Cuban Missile Crisis Limited Series from ‘Godfather’ Producer

5 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime is developing “The Armageddon Letters,” a four-hour limited series centered around the buildup to the Cuban Missile Crisis, Variety has learned.

The limited series, which will be written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson (“Field of Dreams,” “The Sum of All Fears”) is based on the book of the same name, “The Armageddon Letters,” by James Blight and Janet M. Lang. The tome contains forty-three documents, released under the Freedom of Information Act, chronicling the buildup to the Cuban Missile Crisis, when the world teetered on the edge of total nuclear destruction — including letters from President Kennedy, Nikita Kruschev and Fidel Castro, who built a war machine they almost couldn’t turn off.

The project will be executive produced by Albert S. Ruddy (“The Godfather,” “Million Dollar Baby”), Mike Medavoy (“Black Swan,” “Shutter Island”), Benjamin Anderson, and Todd Martens, alongside Alexandra Ruddy for Ruddy Productions.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions is leaving Warner Bros. after a decade to sign a three-year, first-look deal with Paramount Pictures.

The company had been with WB since 2004.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Brad and the team at Paramount Pictures on numerous projects throughout my career. I cannot think of a better home for Appian Way as we continue our growth,” said DiCaprio in a statement.

Paramount Pictures and Appian Way have four projects currently under development: “The Devil in the White City,” based on the book by Erik Larson, with the screen adaptation by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Billy Ray, which will reunite DiCaprio with Scorsese; “Sandcastle Empire,” a film adaptation of the novel by Kayla Olson that depicts an apocalyptic future with society on the brink of collapse from climate change; a yet untitled film based on a book proposal by New York Times journalist »

The pair have four projects currently under development: The long gestating film adaptation of Erik Larson's historical serial killer novel "The Devil in the White City" which Scorsese will produce, the film adaptation of Kayla Olson's climate change apocalypse novel "Sandcastle Empire," a currently untitled film about the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal, and a limited TV series based on A. Scott Berg's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Charles Lindbergh.

Paramount CEO Brad Grey worked with Di Caprio on "The Departed", and Di Caprio has worked with Paramount again in recent years on "Shutter Island" and "The Wolf of Wall Street".

Appian is currently in post-production on Ben Affleck's Dennis Lehane adaptation "Live by Night" and is in pre-production on "Robin Hood: Origins" starring Taron Egerton. »

The companies worked together on The Wolf of Wall Street, The Departed, and Shutter Island, and have four projects in development.

A Brighter Summer Day (Edward Yang)

Edward Yang‘s four-hour coming-of-age/crime drama A Brighter Summer Day is now beautifully restored in 4K for one of the most essential Blu-rays of the year. Having recently had the chance to see it in a theatrical setting (for the first time), I was enthralled by the experience, as if genuinely getting wrapped up in a great novel, peppered with countless details »

The Big Short (Adam McKay)

Co-writer / director Adam McKay made a genuine Adam McKay film with The Big Short. The director of Step Brothers isn’t exactly known for drama, but his outrageous sense of humor serves this fierce, angry, high-stakes tale of outsiders. In exploring the recent financial crisis in a way that’s entertaining, funny, and shocking to watch unfold, The Big Short is the rare example of a film built entirely on exposition that can still work. »

The Forbidden Room (Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson)

Dense and lacking the playful quality of his more straightforward work, this represents a new multi-narrative direction for Maddin, and a kind of rabbit hole. Working within the art world verses the film world, Maddin’s work, style and influences have a tremendous amount of power applicable to cinema within the space of a gallery installation. Night Mayor, his first collaboration with the Nfb, fictionalized the tension between the Nfb’s mission and government controls, »

Creed (Ryan Coogler)

Perhaps after one well-remembered surprise hit and five sequels of quality varying from passable to laughable disaster, no one expected much from Ryan Coogler’s new spin on the Rocky franchise. But Coogler freed himself of the burden of trying to follow its footsteps while doing exactly that. Creed is Hollywood filmmaking at its absolute zenith: a film that sets up archetypes and, without subverting them, turns them into breathing characters who don’t have character goals, »

Ben Affleck Shares Set Photo For Period Crime Caper Live By Night As Production Wraps

23 February 2016 1:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filming has all but wrapped up on the set of Ben Affleck’s period crime caper Live By Night, but that hasn’t stopped the Dawn of Justice star from sharing an image from production.

Less of a teaser for his own film and more a nod to The Hateful Eight cinematographer Robert Richardson, who happens to be up for an Oscar for his work on Tarantino’s brutal Western, Affleck took to Twitter to post the still image of the pair taking a break during filming back in the fall. Since then, we’ve glimpsed additional set photos that place Affleck and co-star Zoe Saldana in the Roaring ’20s.

Based on Dennis Lehane’s (Shutter Island, Mystic River) Prohibition-era crime epic, Live By Night places Affleck’s in the shoes of Joe Coughlin, a Boston renegade who flies in the face of his proud family name by indulging in petty crime. »

The Big Sleep (Howard Hawks)

L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) takes on a blackmail case…and follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Raymond Chandler‘s legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style – and style is what The Big Sleep is all about. Director Howard Hawks serves up snappy character encounters (particularly those of Bogart and Lauren Bacall), brisk pace and atmosphere galore. This Blu-ray doubles your pleasure, »
