True Detective was a series which took everyone by surprise earlier this year. Created and written by Nic Pizzolatto and starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, it was a fascinating character study and a gripping crime thriller which had everyone talking and coming up with their own theories, and even theories on those theories.
The first season of True Detective (which consisted of eight episodes) was directed solely by Cary Joji Fukunaga, and while the Jane Eyre director seemed like an odd choice, there’s no doubting the fact that he did an incredible job. However, a commitment to adapting Stephen King’s It means that he will likely be too busy to return to direct so much as a single episode for the highly anticipated second season.
Since that was revealed, there has been some talk of hiring a number of different directors – similar to Game of Thrones and »

Toronto - On movie set visits, occasionally journalists won't get the chance to talk to directors at all. Sometimes the directors are artistes, too far down the cinematic rabbit hole to engage in casual chit-chat with the fourth estate. Sometimes the directors merely glorified puppets, but the producers are happy to put themselves forward instead. And sometimes the directors are friendly, smart and well-adjusted, but making movies is such complicated work that they can't spare more than two minutes for a smile-and-wave, lest the production between to teeter like an ill-formed game of Mouse Trap. Guillermo del Toro plays by his own rules. It's mid-March on the Toronto set of Legendary/Universal’s "Crimson Peak" and del Toro is literally lifting the roof off of his production to let a small group of reporters see the inner-workings of his Victorian haunted house drama. Actually, over the course of a lengthy day on set, »

Focus Features has given us our first look at Idris Elba (Thor, Luther) as ‘Commandant’ in Beasts of No Nation, director Cary Fukunaga’s (Jane Eyre, True Detective) adaptation of Uzodinma Iweala’s bestselling novel of the same name…
Here’s the official synopsis for the novel:
In this stunning debut novel, Agu, a young boy in an unnamed West African nation, is recruited into a unit of guerrilla fighters as civil war engulfs his country. Haunted by his father’s own death at the hands of militants, Agu is vulnerable to the dangerous yet paternal nature of his new Commander. While the war rages on, Agu becomes increasingly divorced from the life he had known before the conflict started—a life of school friends, church services, and time with his family still intact.

Gothic fiction dates back to 1764 with Horace Walope’s The Castle of Otranto. Unlike the lush Romantic novels that had come before, here the supernatural plagued the lead characters and darker thematics prevailed. Walpoe’s book, in addition to being a bestseller of the time, paved the way for the greats of Gothic fiction to come: Mary Shelley, »

That shot above pictures Idris Elba in Luther, but below we have the first image of the actor in Beasts of No Nation, the new film from Cary Fukunaga. The director has a couple of features under his belt, the great Sin Nombre and a worth-watching adaptation of Jane Eyre. But it was HBO’s True Detective that made a lot more […]

Focus Features has unveiled the first Beasts of No Nation image from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming child soldier drama. Fukunaga also wrote the pic, which is based on author Uzodinma Iweala’s novel of the same name and revolves around a young boy who is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters when a civil war erupts in his West African country. Idris Elba, who is also a producer on the film, plays the army’s terrifying commander, and judging by this first-look image he appears to be rather imposing. Though many may just know Fukunaga as the director of all eight True Detective episodes, his past two features, Jane Eyre and Sin Nombre, have been excellent, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing his passion project Beasts of No Nation realized on the big screen.

Michael Fassbender won our attention as a swaggering cinephile in Inglorious Basterds. He broke our hearts as the dangerous object of desire in Fish Tank, and made them swell as the broken Rochester of Jane Eyre. And of course he made us geek out as Magneto in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. For his next trick, this German-born stunner is begging us to forget the abs he showed in 300 and that face that's mastered the smolder. For now, he wants us to focus on the music in Frank. Above you can see the latest trailer from this offbeat comedy, or see it in hi-res at Apple. This trailer is all kinds of weird, but that's precisely its appeal. And if you think that Coca-Cola Kiss Me song is ridiculous, just wait until the memory of it creeps up on you in the shower, playing on an »
Chicago – “Game of Thrones” is over and you’ve already binged “Orange is the New Black,” what are you supposed to do now? There are a few interesting new programs this season – FX’s “Tyrant” & “The Strain,” HBO’s “The Leftovers,” CBS’s “Extant,” and a few more – but it’s also a great time to catch up what you may have missed with new Blu-ray and DVD releases. There are five TV-to-Blu-ray releases this month that might warrant a look.
The top of the pile is also the best program of 2014 to date, a show that has really redefined the year in that it’s already used as a watermark (“Sure, Fargo and The Americans were great but they were no True Detective.”) With fantastic performances from Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, HBO has wasted no time in getting the wildly acclaimed “True Detective” on Blu-ray and DVD a »

Charlotte Gainsbourg lets her sexuality do the talking in Lar von Trier's Nymphomaniac.
Danish bad boy Lars von Trier’s (Breaking the Waves) latest work is the 2013 two-part erotic drama film Nymphomaniac, Volume I and II, starring the international ensemble of Charlotte Gainsbourg (The City of Your Final Destination), Stellan Skarsgard (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Shia Labeouf (Lawless), Connie Nielsen (3 Days to Kill), Christian Slater (Bullet to the Head), Jamie Bell (Jane Eyre), Uma Thurman (Ceremony) and Willem Dafoe (Antichrist).
In the movie, nice-guy older bachelor Selgiman (Skarsgard) finds self-diagnosed nymphomaniac Joe (Gainsbourg) beaten up in an alleyway. He brings her home to his flat where he tends to her wounds while asking her about her life. He listens intently as Joe, over the next eight chapters, recounts the lustful story of her highly erotic life from infancy to the age of 50. Seligman, »

Running Time: 480 minutes (8 episodes)
Chances are if you’ve not seen True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto’s eight-part HBO drama, you’re probably planning on it. Dominating television chat continually since it’s TV debut in February, with high-quality suggestive whispers of The Wire-esque quality, preconceptions were always (and will remain) the biggest obstacle this television show faces, backed up even further by the shared lead performances of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey – bolstered by a convenient yet wholly well-deserved Oscar win for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club; as Louisianan detectives Martin ‘Marty’ Hart and Rustin ‘Rust’ Cohle, these two ever-capable performers deliver show-stopping turns to rival all work to have come before (yep, even How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days…)

Quentin Tarantino, during his Cannes Film Festival press conference (watch it here), mentioned an email chain he was a part of where he and some friends discussed what they believed to be the ten most exciting directors working today. Among those listed he said only David Fincher and Richard Linklater where in everyone's top ten, he wasn't sure why Pedro Almodovar wasn't on everyone's list and he also qualified what he believed it meant for a director to be the "most exciting". Here's how he put it: "I think what that means is, you feel that their best work is still in front of them. That's what makes a filmmaker exciting, that's what makes you anticipate a new movie coming out. Because the new movie could be their best one. From this day on that will be the new barometer from which they're judged. We could be wrong, and their »

After five years of development on the project, Warner Bros. Pictures is handing over development of its new film adaptation of Stephen King's "It" to its New Line division.
It's a rare move, but not unanticipated as the companies are now becoming more clearly defined about what films they intend to make. New Line will now take the lead on horror projects.
At last report, filmmaker Cary Fukunaga ("Jane Eyre," "True Detective") had been hired to direct a two-film adaptation of "It" which Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg will produce.
The story follows a group of teen nerds and outcasts (nicknamed 'The Losers Club') in 1958 who encounter 'It', a shapeshifting creature which feeds on children and whose favorite form is that of a sadistic clown called Pennywise.
In 1985 the creature resurfaces. The kids, who're now adults, must take on the demon of their childhood again »

To mark the release of Bonnie and Clyde on 19th May, we’ve been given 5 copies to give away on DVD
Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre) & Clyde Barrow’s (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fuelled by their passion for each other and Bonnie’s obsession with fame, the couple committed increasingly dangerous robberies, leaving a trail of blood – and headlines – behind them. Aided by Clyde’s sixth sense, they stayed one step ahead of the law until their final, fateful showdown. Also starring Academy Award® winners Holly Hunter (Best Actress, 1993, The Piano) and William Hurt (Best Actor, 1985, Kiss of the Spider Woman), Bonnie And Clyde is powerful, gripping entertainment.
