Mute (2018)

A mute bartender goes up against his city’s gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

This is the latest film from director Duncan Jones, who made a name for himself with high concept sci-fi films like Moon and Source Code. Mute was in development hell for several years, but Jones finally announced it would be his next movie in November 2015. He drew inspiration from Blade Runner while crafting its world, and started production in September 2016.

Duncan Jones reveals release date for Netflix’s Mute

While there’s some disappointment that Mute, the new film from Warcraft and Source Code director Duncan Jones, will be bypassing cinemas and heading straight to Netflix, it does mean that you’ll get to watch it sooner than you might think. Jones has used his Twitter account to reveal the streaming debut date of his Alexander Skarsgård fronted mystery.

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 surgeons (Rudd and Theroux), who serve as his only clue.

Fans of director Duncan Jones won't have to wait much longer for his next film Mute, with the filmmaker taking to Twitter this morning to reveal that Netflix has set a February 23 premiere date for this upcoming movie. This comes just a few weeks after Netflix unveiled the first look at Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard, and while it isn't clear when the first trailer will arrive, the director sent out a lengthy Twitter thread to his followers, where he examined the ups and downs of this project. Here's his full statement below.

"So some of you may be aware that I have previously called @Mute my 'Don Quixote.' I did this, as much like Terry Gillian's fabled film of that name, it seemed everything was against Mute ever being made. In fact, here's an early draft... from 2003! Back then the film was a very different beast. It was set in London,

Infinity Chamber: exploring an underrated indie sci-fi gem

Ryan Lambie Jan 16, 2018

It’s claustrophic and keeps you guessing from beginning to end. We take a look at the superb indie sci-fi flick, Infinity Chamber...

When astronaut Dave Bowman engaged in his battle of wits with the malfunctioning Hal-9000 in Stanley Kubrick’s seminal 2001: A Space Odyssey, the whole notion of humans interacting with computers on a mundane, conversational level was still in the realm of science fiction. Fifty years on from 2001’s release, and the film’s depiction of regular flights into space now looks more than a little far off the mark; its notion of an intimate relationship between humans and machines, on the other hand, still seems accurate.

Film Review: ‘Freak Show’

Film Review: ‘Freak Show’
“Buckle up, darlings,” warns Billy Bloom, the adolescent protagonist of “Freak Show,” with his most salacious Bette Davis sneer. “I’m gonna take you on a little ride I call my life.” For a second, you sense some affectionate irony in Trudie Styler’s well-intentioned but woolly directorial debut: After all, many’s the privileged suburban teenager who has declared their life wilder and wackier than anyone else’s.

It doesn’t take long to realize, however, that “Freak Show” takes Billy (gamely played by British rising star Alex Lawther) entirely at his word. An out-and-proud, drag-loving high-schooler who delights in subverting masculine norms — and wears his resulting social isolation as a badge of honor — he’s certainly a beautiful misfit. Yet Styler’s surface-level adaptation of James St. James’ queer bildungsroman shows us more of Billy’s eye-popping wardrobe than his soul, as his superficially defined exceptionalism tilts ever less endearingly into narcissism; we leave this carnival-colored

The Last Word on ‘Warcraft’

Well, a lot of times, ‘Warcraft‘ did make me feel like I was watching a video game. Not playing one – just watching one. One I didn’t like at all, had no interest in, and most importantly, wasn’t playing! The effects and the graphics, while often quite skilled and good, and often felt like they were reasonable images I would come across–when playing a video game. I don’t know whether that’s a compliment to the movie or the game, but either way, I don’t think it helped improve the movie much.

Trying to figure out what the hell, the rest of this…- well, my “plot notes” are a bit murky, and most of my notes consist of self-portrait doodles of me fantasizing about cutting myself, so I’m gonna try to reconnect and understand this, deformed, attempted ‘Lord of the Rings‘ clone, and piece it together in a way,

This Year’s Oscar Actor Races Could Provide a Lot of First-Time Nominees

This Year’s Oscar Actor Races Could Provide a Lot of First-Time Nominees
There are a number of universal constants every awards season. There will always be at least one upset. There will always be at least one major snub. And, assuredly, there will always be a number of talented contenders knocking on the door trying to break through for that first Oscar nomination.

This season, Sam Rockwell, who has been awards worthy in “Moon” and “Frost/Nixon,” among other films, finds himself a frontrunner his work in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Armie Hammer was buzzed about for “The Social Network,” but should have better luck with “Call Me by Your Name.” Adam Sandler is best known for broad comedies, but has earned acclaim for his dramatic work in “Punch-Drunk Love” and “Funny People.” He has his best shot at a nomination in years with his role in “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).”

But they certainly aren’t alone.

Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey is in talks over a starring role in “Banking on Mr. Toad,” a live-action and CGI movie about the life of “Wind in the Willows” author Kenneth Grahame.

Toby Kebbell (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) is attached to the film, which has been years in the making and will finally enter into production next spring, shooting at Pinewood. Kebbell will play Grahame and Headey, if she signs on, his wife Elsie. Brian Blessed (“Star Wars Episode I”) is also on board and will play Grahame’s friend and confidante Frederick James Furnivall.

In an earlier incarnation it was financed and set to shoot in Ireland, but the country’s banking crisis scuppered the production. Financing will now come from a new European production fund set up by Timothy Haas, who will produce the movie through his Haas Silver Levene banner.

Playback: Sam Rockwell on ‘Three Billboards’ and Tackling George W. Bush

Playback: Sam Rockwell on ‘Three Billboards’ and Tackling George W. Bush
Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Sam Rockwell has been on the brink of serious awards attention for a while now. He came close to Oscar recognition with his tour-de-force performance in Duncan Jones’ “Moon,” but his work as a racist Missouri law enforcement officer in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” is perhaps his best work to date, carved with complexity and grace. It might finally be hi ticket to the dance.

Listen to this week’s episode of “Playback” below. New episodes air every Thursday.

Rockwell has worked from a McDonagh script three times now, having previously starred in the director’s “Seven Psychopaths” and his play “A Behanding in Spokane.” He relishes the collaboration, particularly for McDonagh’s capabilities on the page.

“[The characters are] very detailed and defined,” Rockwell says. “The

Rumour: Silk could appear in Avengers: Infinity War

It looks like Avengers: Infinity War may be set to add yet another hero to its enormous roster, with rumours surfacing that the character of Cindy Moon – a.k.a. Silk – could be set to feature in next year’s Marvel superhero blockbuster.

The rumour began with a tweet from the IMDb, asking “Does the name Cindy Moon mean anything to you?”, complete with the Avengers: Infinity War logo, complete with a link to actress Tiffany Espensen, who just so happened to portray the character of Cindy in Spider-Man: Homecoming

This of course could be pure speculation on the IMDb’s part, but interestingly the tweet was retweeted by comic book writer Robbie Thompson, known for his tweet on Marvel’s Silk series.

Frances McDormand Delivers but Sam Rockwell Is the Story in ‘Three Billboards’

Frances McDormand Delivers but Sam Rockwell Is the Story in ‘Three Billboards’
In terms of the awards season, all eyes will surely be on Frances McDormand in Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which premiered at the Venice Film Festival Monday. But while the actress delivers a more nuanced turn than the fire-breathing character you might expect from the film’s trailer, it’s Sam Rockwell who really punches through the ensemble with a dramatic arc and a reminder that the journeyman actor can be one of the best tools in a director’s arsenal.

Rockwell stars as hateful Missouri law officer Jason Dixon, clearly a few bricks shy of a load, a simpleton who is the product of his limited environment. But he’s by no means a caricature. Jason has deep admiration and love for Woody Harrelson’s noble Sheriff Bill Willoughby, under fire from McDormand’s scorned Mildred Hayes, who seeks justice for her raped and murdered daughter. He

Sam Rockwell Is George W. Bush in Cheney Biopic
Sam Rockwell (Matchstick Men, Iron Man 2) is one of the best actors working today so any role he takes on is worth taking a look at. But this latest news is particularly interesting.

Bush in the upcoming Dick Cheney biopic, simply titled Cheney, which is to be directed by Adam McKay (The Big Short).
