Five of the greatest one-location movies

27 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ben Wheatley’s new film Free Fire is a Boston set action-thriller starring Cillian Murphy, Brie Larson and many more, which sees a meeting between different gangs break out into a bloody shootout and an all out game of survival. It is also entirely set in a warehouse; a decision that Wheatley uses to create an incredibly effective film of utter carnage. To mark its release in cinemas this Friday, we have collected five other films either entirely or mostly set in one location.

Rear Window (1954)

Known as one of, if not the greatest thriller of all time, Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece is testament to the fact that the simplest premise can often be the most effective. It follows L.B. ‘Jeff’ Jefferies, a wheel-bound photographer who spies on his neighbours to pass the time and becomes convinced that one has murdered his wife. As well as offering a fascinating »

Is Netflix ringing the death knell for cinemas?

13 March 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Mar 16, 2017

With Martin Scorsese's The Irishman the latest high profile movie capture for Netflix, where does this leave the multiplex?

Last month it was announced that the distribution rights to Martin Scorsese’s long-awaited mob film, The Irishman, had been purchased by Netflix. This will no doubt be a major coup for the online streaming service. The film is reuniting Scorsese with his greatest muse, Robert De Niro, for the first time since 1995’s Casino, while Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel have also been confirmed. It’s the filmic equivalent of a classic rock supergroup – like The Expendables but it might actually be good.

It won’t be the first time, however, that Netflix has attracted A-list talent. Since 2015, the company has emerged as a major player in original film production, and in doing so it has shaken the foundations of the studio driven system which we all took for granted. »

'Still Alice', 'The Silent Storm' producers board musical 'The Sound Of Mumbai'

8 March 2017 12:11 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Screen Australia-backed musical set in Mumbai slums gets producer duo.

Still Alice producer James Brown and The Silent Storm producer Nicky Bentham have joined musical project The Sound Of Mumbai, writer-director Sarah McCarthy’s narrative feature adaptation of her 2010 documentary of the same name, which played at Toronto.

Currently in development, the true story follows a choir of children from the slums of Mumbai as they prepare to perform a concert of songs from The Sound of Music in the city’s most prestigious concert hall.

Former UK distribution consultant Brown and Moon co-producer Bentham will serve as producers alongside McCarthy.

Music rights are understood to be under negotiation.

The project was among those to receive development support from Screen Australia through its Brilliant Stories Fund, the initiative designed to boost female-directed and produced projects in the marketplace.

According to the film’s director, there’s no word on Warcraft 2 – yet

10 February 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it didn’t have a great domestic theatrical run, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft was a huge success overseas and became the most successful video game movie ever made. We did hear word late last year that a sequel was in development solely designed for the Chinese market, but now the director has thrown some shade on those discussions.

When asked on Twitter if a sequel was getting made, Jones simply replied, “Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from [the studio].

@hanimishka Definitely. The hard work is done! The next film would be so much fun!

He then retweeted praise from fans of the film, presumably in the hopes to get a sequel off the ground.

‘A Cure for Wellness’ Exclusive Soundtrack: Listen to a Track From Benjamin Wallfisch’s Dark, Ominous Score

8 February 2017 2:51 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gore Verbinski’s new psychological thriller “A Cure for Wellness” follows a young exec (Dane DeHaan) sent to retrieve his company’s CEO (Jason Isaacs) from a mysterious wellness center only to discover that the spa’s treatments are not what they seem. The film has received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics ahead of its release date, with IndieWire’s own David Ehrlich giving it a B+ and said that it’s a “thrilling reminder of what can happen in the increasingly rare instance when a visionary filmmaker is given serious cash without constraints.”

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perception

Groundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionGroundhog Day and 10 more films about time, dreams, and perceptionAdriana Floridia2/2/2017 10:30:00 Am

Today is Groundhog Day, where the myth lives on that a groundhog who sees his shadow will doom us to a longer winter than we deserve. Then there is Harold RamisGroundhog Day, the film in which Bill Murray’s weatherman, Phil Connors mysteriously finds himself living the same day over and over again. On a traditional level the movie is a comedy, but it actually touches upon some really dark philosophical themes. It’s estimated by the filmmakers that Phil lives the same day for 10 years.  

In honour of Groundhog Day, we’re taking a look back at ten other films that deal with time, memory, dreams, and repeated experiences. While there may be no film that tackles the topic as precisely as Groundhog Day, these »

The little link between Moon and Sunshine

31 January 2017 3:05 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 1, 2017

Moon director Duncan Jones put a "sly aside" to Danny Boyle's Sunshine in his film, he's revealed...

Two British directors made two fascinating science fiction films in the 2000s. Danny Boyle gave the world the terrific Sunshine in 2007, and Duncan Jones’ debut feature, Moon, arrived in 2009. The pair, though, have a little link between them, that was unearthed by Mark Kermode.

Kermode was hosting a screening of Moon in Truro last week, that he followed with an on-stage Q&A with Duncan Jones. And Jones revealed that there’s a little tribute to Sunshine within Moon.

“Apparently, Moon and Sunshine at one point were slightly in competition”, Kermode said. “And that’s why, in Moon, there’s a burst of Katrina & The Waves doing Walking On Sunshine”.

Jones was apparently very aware of the competition between Sunshine and Moon when putting his movie together, and thus »

8 Reasons Why Mute Could Be The Sci-Fi Film Of The Year

The science fiction genre is rife with films from across the quality spectrum, along with one of the more passionate fanbases. Movies in this particular genre can be noisily action-packed or quietly meditative (sometimes both), with the genre best used to commentate on social and political matters amongst a world filled with crazy technology, robots and mutants.

Many a masterpiece falls into the sci-fi category, with director Duncan Jones adding his film Moon to that list way back in 2009. His adoration for the genre is in every frame, and using minimal cast with one setting (hint, it’s in the title) Jones crafted a movie that was unfortunately not seen by many but treasured by those who were lucky enough to catch it.

At the end of last year, Jones finally announced that his next film, Mute, »

7 January 2017 6:16 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The story follows a bartender (Alexander Skarsgård) who teams up with a pair of surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) to track down his missing girlfriend. Mute is the second part of Jones' trilogy which kicked-off with Moon, and is apparently set in the same universe. There's a definite Blade Runner vibe from these first images, which you can check out below along with the synopsis. Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh).

First Look at Duncan Jones' Netflix Thriller, Mute

6 January 2017 10:43 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Duncan Jones' psychological thriller, starring Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, and Justin Theroux is coming to Netflix this year!  In anticipation for it's inevitable release, check out the first photos from the film!

The director of Moon, Source Code, and most recently Warcraft, has spent the last few months working his latest film, not for the big screen, but for the streaming juggernaut Netflix.  Today, we get to sample the fruits of his labor with new pics! Let's analyze the first pictures from Duncan Jones' Netflix Original Movie, Mute, shall we?

As you can see from the photos, Mute feels very 80s with its interpretation of the future.  Almost Blade Runner-esque or Judge Dredd without all the Rob Schneiders hiding in pasta robots.  The premise behind Mute is a pretty interesting one too.  See the synopsis below:

Mute First Look Images Reveal Hints Of Duncan Jones’ Layered Awesomeness

6 January 2017 9:11 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The first, often tiny, reveals from films, especially those that are still rather far from release, don’t generally amount to much, but when Duncan Jones is involved, you hope for a taste of the wild world headed your way.

Mute, a film that sounds like a brilliant revisit to film noir, has released a few images, and though I’m not usually one for picking apart the details of such things, these actually manage to amp up the anticipation. Sure, the image of Paul Rudd is just Paul Rudd with a serious mustache, but he plays one of a pair of surgeons, and he looks like he’s stepped out of some warped reboot of Mash.

Beyond that little touch of fun, the images reveal something that looks like Blade Runner, and when you put it together with the dark, ominous plot, that throws things a bit out of »

If you're done bingeing The Oa and you're looking for a new, mysterious Netflix property to obsess over, Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard are here for you. They star in the streaming giant's latest original film, Mute, which looks like the perfect futuristic thriller to tide us over until Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters. Mute is directed by Warcraft's Duncan Jones and is described as a "spiritual sequel" to his debut sci-fi film, Moon, since it takes place in the same universe. Set in the near future, Leo (Skarsgard) is a mute bartender living in Berlin, whose beautiful girlfriend, Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh), disappears. With the help of two American surgeons (Rudd and Justin Theroux), Leo descends into the city's seedy underbelly in search of his lost love. It won't premiere until sometime later this year (the exact date is still Tbd), but for now, take a peek at the »

First images from Duncan Jones’ Mute revealed

6 January 2017 8:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first batch of images from MuteDuncan Jones’ directorial follow-up to Warcraft, have arrived online. Three of the film’s main cast members, Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux, are highlighted in the stills. Check them out below…

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at the images is how much the film’s visuals look like that of Blade Runner, with neon signs lighting up 2052 Berlin, which is where and when the film is set. In fact, Jones even told the outlet that the film draws influence from the 1982 Ridley Scott classic, as well as 1942’s Casablanca.

In the film, Skarsgård plays a mute bartender named Leo who sets out on a mission to find his girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh) when she goes missing. On his noir-ish quest, he dives “deep into the city’s seedy, neon underworld” and constantly comes across two sketchy American »
