Nicolas Winding Refn Presents Series Is Releasing The ‘RoboCop’ Soundtrack On Vinyl

21 May 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A certain type of vintage genre score has rightfully earned its place in film music pantheon —think the haunting pulsations of John Carpenter, the woozy dreamscapes of Tangerine Dream, the throbbing disco-synth anxieties of Giorgio Moroder —and that atmospheric spirit as such is currently being channeled by filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn. The director recontextualized the Pet Shop Boys for a new generation with his bruising psycho prison film “Bronson”; he's turned throwback synth artist Johnny Jewel into a kind of modern rock star in the field thanks to his “Drive” score (the film's star Ryan Gosling has turned into a devotee too); and he's also helped transform Steven Soderbergh-collaborator Cliff Martinez (“Only God Forgives,” “Solaris”) into one of the most sought after modern film composers. While Refn is creatively indebted to the mondo-exotica genre films of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s and their soundtracks, the filmmaker has used his recent cache to shine a. »

Tom Hardy on reinventing Max Rockatansky for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

13 May 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you have any questions about how good an actor Tom Hardy is, all you need to do is interview him sometime. Trying to connect the soft-spoken guy who has trouble holding eye contact when answering questions to the wild animal you see in films like "Bronson" or "The Dark Knight Rises" or, indeed, "Mad Max: Fury Road," is nearly impossible. When we sat down to talk about his work in the film, we were joined by his personal stuntman in the film, and I wish we'd had about five times more time to ask questions and talk about the process. One of the reasons "Fury Road" is such a wild experience is because of the expert use Miller and his team made of CG, using it to simply remove safety rigging. That allowed them to use the actual actors in more scenes than you would expect. When you're talking about a "Mad Max" film, »

Beauty, obsession, and the sinister side of Los Angeles inhabit Nicolas Winding Refn's latest film, The Neon Demon. With principal photography on The Neon Demon almost finished, two photos from the film have been revealed.

"When aspiring model Jesse moves to Los Angeles, her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.

Tom Hardy is Simply the Best

5 May 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm not sure Tom Hardy will ever become a household name. If he were already I don't think I'd be as nervous for the box office prospects as I am for Mad Max: Fury Road, which looks balls-to-the-wall insane and a movie I'm counting the minutes until my press screening next week, though at the same time nervous general audiences won't rush to support. That said, what it would take for Hardy to become a household name is probably a career path that would result in Tom Hardy no longer being the Tom Hardy we all know and love. While Hardy may have played a major role in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, I would wager the majority of people unfamiliar with his face don't even realize he's the same actor starring in the new Mad Max film or even the actor that played Eames in Nolan's Inception, »

Tom Hardy Is The Kray Twins In First Trailer For Legend

30 April 2015 6:28 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

He's already portrayed one famous British criminal in Bronson, now Tom Hardy is trying his hand at two with Legend, using CGI trickery to step into the shoes of the infamous Kray Twins, Ronnie and Reggie. Directed by Brian Helgeland (A Knight's Tale, and Oscar nominated writer of Mystic River), Legend delves into the twins rise to power in the 60's, a time when they terrorised London with their crime gang The Firm. While the first teaser is just that, it does gives us a great sense of the tone and style of the movie, and gives a look at Hardy's fantastic performance (or is that performances?), able to convey the differences between the two in ingeniously subtle ways. Released: 11th September (Irl/U.K.) »

Seeing Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River' Through Composer Johnny Jewel's Eyes (Stream Soundtrack)

20 April 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Johnny Jewel — née John Padgett — is the staggeringly productive force behind that glistening, nocturnal, electro-noir synth pop you heard in Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive." Almost four years later, he brings his signature genre-bending style back to the screen for his pal Ryan Gosling's dark fairytale "Lost River." But in between, he juggled running his own label, Italians Do It Better, while playing in several of its bands including Glass Candy and Chromatics, doing for-hire TV work and squirreling money away for his own super-secret side projects. His "Lost River" journey began around 2008 when he supplied tracks for "Bronson" director Refn, who brought Jewel on for the acclaimed "Drive," starring and produced by Gosling. By now, Jewel and Gosling have learned to talk each other in a kind of creative frenzy, a simpatico mind meld that makes for a unique director/composer pairing. "When you're creating a world, there's a. »

Child 44 Review

19 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hard to dislike Tom Hardy as an actor. Whatever cinematic challenge he takes on, from atypically brainy blockbusters like Inception and The Dark Knight Rises to taut dramas like Bronson and Locke, he always gives it his all, digging under his character’s skins with a diligence and canniness that elevates him above possibly any other actor of his generation. Along the way, he’s found particular success in embodying strong, silent types, the kinds of men who more resemble wild animals than well-mannered gentlemen. Hardy’s characters are like caged wolves – as much as you want to reach in and pet them, you might lose your hand if you do.

In Child 44, the actor is up to his usual tricks. As Leo Demidov, a dedicated security officer tasked with cracking down on traitors in Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union, Hardy plays another hardened man’s man, »

Tom Hardy Facts: 15 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Actor

17 April 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ever since breaking out in "Bronson" (2008), Tom Hardy has been on a tear.

The London-born actor got his start in supporting roles, appearing in two of the most memorable productions of the early 2000s, but it would be a few years until Hardy became the star we now know. After dealing with alcohol addiction and the end of his first marriage, Hardy has become one of Britain's brightest talents. Now, the actor stars in the thriller "Child 44" opposite Gary Oldman and, later this summer, takes over for Mel Gibson in the summer blockbuster "Mad Max: Fury Road."

From his acting debut to his favorite actor, here are 15 things you probably don't know about Tom Hardy.

Watch: Video Essay Dives Into The Psychology And Symbolism Of Nicolas Winding Refn's 'Bronson'

10 April 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Drive" may have brought director Nicolas Winding Refn the most mainstream attention of his career, but it’s easy to forget that his first English-language breakthrough was actually 2008's "Bronson." It was the first film Refn made after completing his "Pusher" trilogy in 2005, and in many ways, it felt like Refn was entering a new, more stylistically bold phase of his career. This phase would be further exemplified by his subsequent work, especially with his last film “Only God Forgives.” While the most memorable aspect of "Bronson" is easily Tom Hardy's powerhouse, star-making performance, a recent video essay from filmmaker/essayist Sean Pettis sheds light on just how rich this film is in both its attention to detail and symbolism. Whether it's through the use of static shots, foreshadowing, or even vertical lines, which can be seen in the background of several shots, the essay effectively demonstrates how Refn was able to reinforce the. »

Tom Hardy is contracted for three Mad Max sequels based on Fury Road results

2 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Tom Hardy is a great actor. The guy is a chameleon and has done everything from play the craziest inmate in England (Bronson) to a Batman villain (The Dark Knight Rises) and beyond. But, this summer's Mad Max: Fury Road represents the first major franchise lead role for the actor and it looks spectacular. Each trailer we have seen has topped the previous one and is renewing interest in the decades old franchise that has always been associated with star Mel Gibson. If the massive Mad »

Stream the Soundtrack to Ryan Gosling’s Lost River Now!

30 March 2015 6:46 PM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

If you haven’t watched the trailer to Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut called Lost River, correct that now. While early buzz has been mixed, I’m excited to see the film. I think it is also cool that Johnny Jewel scored the film, considering he was going to be the original composer for Refn’s Drive (See Symmetry: Themes for an Imaginary Film where some of Jewel’s ideas and possibly leftout compositions lay). Lost River looks dreamy, hypnotic and a nightmare of Americana.

From the Press Release

Performer/producer/visual artist and composer Johnny Jewel scores Warner Bros.’ thriller Lost River, opening in theaters April 10, 2015.

Directed and written by Ryan Gosling, Lost River is a dark fairy tale about love, family and the fight for survival in the face of danger starring Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, and Ben Mendelsohn. The multi-talented Jewel provides a grainy analog synth score »

Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon Will Feature Cannibalistic Supermodels

16 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given his track record, Nicolas Winding Refn honestly has my money as soon as he announces a new project. With gripping character study Bronson, stylish modern classic Drive (possibly my favorite movie of all-time) and the hypnotic Only God Forgives under his belt, the filmmaker is one of the most unique voices working in cinema today. And judging by new tidbits about his upcoming horror movie The Neon Demon, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

While being interviewed by Dazed and Confused last month about her documentary My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, the filmmaker’s wife, Liv Corfixen, let slip some fascinating details about The Neon Demon‘s inspirations – including that the film is inspired by Countess Elizabeth Báthory, a notoriously cruel 16th-century countess who was rumored to bathe in the blood of local virgins. Báthory tortured these young girls and murdered them in hopes of »

Beyond Fright: Exclusive Interview With Filmmakers Nicolas Winding Refn & Liv Corfixen!

6 March 2015 12:58 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Most cinephiles are already well versed in the career of the artistically wonderful Nicolas Winding Refn. From the early days of his Pusher trilogy to the Tom Hardy-led Bronson, to the critically and financially successful Drive, Nwr has done an excellent job creating a worldwide recognition for himself and with good reason. He’s a rare voice in today’s world of film, and his follow up to Drive, Only God Forgives is a poetic and violent film filled with visually striking elements. Liv Corfixen, Refn’s wife, documented the ins and out of dealing and living with Nwr during the time period in which Only God Forgives was filmed, and the result is My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (review). It’s a very interesting and thoroughly entertaining documentary that doesn’t hide the fact that sometimes making films is hard and living with someone who is »

Beyond Fright Review: My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn

2 March 2015 2:13 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Danish born filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most exciting and diverse directors working in and outside the film industry today. A cinephile who states that Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the film that cemented his desire to one day make a picture himself, Refn’s films exude such cinematic passion with a stark, specific vision, and as much style as there is substance in every film he’s created. If you’ve ever wondered on the thought process of such an auteur, then step right up, because My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn delivers that in harsh spades.

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn (referred here on out as Mldbnwr) chronicles the making of Only God Forgives, Refn’s stylish, Alejandro Jodorowsky dedicated, neon-drenched deconstruction of a leading Hollywood star. Shot and directed by his fellow filmmaker wife Liv Corfixen, we’re »

'My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn' (2015) Movie Review

23 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"It would be boring if we all just made safe films." So says Nicolas Winding Refn following the premiere of Only God Forgives at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The quote comes from the brisk, 58-minute documentary My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, shot by Refn's wife Liv Corfixen during production of Only God Forgives, largely during the couple's time in Bangkok with glimpses back home in Denmark during post production and finally at the film's premiere on the Croisette in Cannes. It's a fascinating look at a filmmaker I've personally come to anticipate his every next feature, though I'm not afraid to admit Only God Forgives was a bit of a let down, as it seems it was for Refn... or was itc The most fascinating aspect of this doc is to lay witness to Refn's inner turmoil. From the beginning he's stuck in his own head, looking at »

My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn In Theatres & On Demand February 27th

19 February 2015 7:40 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

After Bronson, Valhalla Rising, Drive, and Only God ForgivesNicolas Winding Refn is one of the most exciting directors working today. Refn burst onto the film scene in the late 1990s with the delightfully nasty Pusher trilogy, and has continued to produce some of the most thought-provoking and visually spectacular genre-benders of any modern auteur. From Tom Hardy’s career-defining titular Bronson to Mads Mikkelsen’s feral One Eye to Ryan Gosling’s icy cold Driver, Refn has time and again crafted nuanced portraits of deeply conflicted but undeniably charismatic antiheroes.

In My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, Refn’s own deep conflict is swinging in the breeze as we witness him wrestle with the particularly challenging production of Only God Forgives. Directed and shot by his wife Liv Corfixen over the duration of the production and subsequent Cannes debut, My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn captures the »

Listen: Johnny Jewel’s "Bullytown" From Ryan Gosling’s ‘Lost River’ Featuring Matt Smith

19 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s safe to say as Nicolas Winding Refn’s current muse, actor-turned-director Ryan Gosling, is also heavily influenced by his filmmaker friend. Take Gosling’s directorial debut “Lost River,” which is scored by dreamy analogue synth artist Johnny Jewel (who’s also in the bands Glass Candy, Chromatics Desire and Symmetry). Before scoring Gosling’s entire film, Jewel was probably best known for his musical contributions to Refn’s “Bronson” and “Drive.” So perhaps taking cues from his main bro (who has defended the actor’s film vigorously), Gosling tapped Jewel to write the entire score to his polarizing debut “Lost Rive,r” which some have compared to David Lynch, and yes, a little bit of Refn, too (here’s our review). In a press release from a few months back, Jewel said, "When Ryan e-mailed me the script my immediate feeling was that the whole film should be »
