Emily Blunt On ‘The Girl On The Train’ And The Anesthetizing Effect Of Comic Book Cinema – Q&A

5 December 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Emily Blunt practices what she preaches. As cinema is under increasing pressure to acknowledge and deliver work that appeals to more than white teenage males, so Blunt is using the profile she's developed through roles like The Devil Wears Prada, The Young Victoria and Sicario to bring to the screen fully-rounded female characters. They're present in everything she's done lately, whether that's Rian Johnson's Looper, the Tom Cruise actioner Edge of Tomorrow, or… »

‘Star Wars’: Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy Says Studio Is Struggling to Find Female Directors With Proper Experience

28 November 2016 7:41 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As the Star Wars universe has continued to expand, thanks to the addition of brand-new trilogy of films and a series of standalone offerings (hi, Han Solo spin-off!), the entertainment behemoth has seemingly made it their business to add some much-needed diversity to their galaxy far, far away. The first film in their latest trilogy, last year’s “The Force Awakens,” was lead by both a female star (Daisy Ridley as Rey) and a black actor (John Boyega as Finn), and this year’s standalone feature, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” boasts its own female lead (Felicity Jones), who will go into battle alongside an impressively diverse supporting cast that includes Riz Ahmed, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker and Jiang Wen.

But behind the camera, it’s a very different picture. Every “Star Wars” film to date has been directed by a white male — from the original trilogy, »

Hell or High Water (David Mackenzie)

David McKenzie’s Hell or High Water is a gritty, darkly humorous, and fiendishly violent neo-western. Or, in other words, the type of film you might expect from a non-American director working in the United States. It borrows heavily »

Detailed Description Of Luke Skywalker’s Star Wars: Episode VIII Costume

1 November 2016 6:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looper director Rian Johnson’s follow-up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens (the currently untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII) is still a long way off, and that means hungry fans are scrambling for any new scraps of information they can get their hands on. With that in mind, we now have a detailed description of the main outfit Luke Skywalker will be wearing in the movie.

When the Jedi master was briefly re-introduced in the closing moments of The Force Awakens, he was rocking an Obi Wan Kenobi-esque grey and white robe, but if Making Star Wars’ description is accurate, he’s going to be garbed in an outfit more reminiscent of the one he wore at the beginning of The Return of The Jedi when we see him again next year:

Luke Skywalker wears a darker costume compared to what we saw in The Force Awakens. This costume is »

Newswire: Joseph Gordon-Levitt will also play a lonely space man

18 October 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s a good day for handsome, lonely dudes floating around in space, just waiting for someone to rescue them with an Eva mission of love. Hot on the announcement of Aaron Paul’s new movie Android—about an astronaut who tries to build robot doubles of his lost loved ones—Deadline reports that Joseph Gordon-Levitt has also signed on for a film about a man who goes searching for love among the stars.

Gordon-Levitt will star in Sovereign, from director Marc Munden, who’s probably best known for his work on British TV series like Utopia and the recent Channel 4 mini-series National Treasure. The new film is being described as a sci-fi thriller, and will see the Looper star play a man searching for his estranged wife on an abandoned space station. That sounds like a pretty meaty set-up for some space-based psychological scares, even if part of »

Swiss Army Man (Daniels)

It’s rare we’d offer a recommendation of a film we didn’t love, but the mere fact that you won’t witness any other film like Swiss Army Man in this calendar year — or any other, for that matter — makes it worth a watch. Affectionally dubbed the “farting corpse drama” at Sundance this year, it finds Hank (Paul Dano) on a remote island by himself after a boating trip stranded him. Seconds »

Weekend Box Office Preview: ‘Sully’ Holds, But ‘Blair Witch’ Might Take Off

15 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blair Witch” (Lionsgate), the second sequel to the groundbreaking 1999 low-budget horror smash, looks to have the best chance to top Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. “Sully” has the edge against an eclectic slate of familiar follow-ups to prior hits.

With “Sully” included, the weekend showcases three Oscar-winning directors —Clint Eastwood, Oliver Stone (“Snowden,” Open Road) and Ron Howard (limited release “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week,” Abramorama)—plus “Bridget Jones’s Baby” (Universal), starring Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger, taking a third pass on her best-known role.

The weekend could be hard-pressed to equal its equivalent last year, when “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” combined open to $53 million, well ahead of what this weekend promises. But “Sully” might push the Top Ten weekend total close to 2015’s $93 million.

That would keep pace with the 5% year to date uptick still in play. But this week’s »

Pilot for Jcvd's Ridiculously Farcical Action Comedy Jean-claude Van Johnson is a Giant Leap Forward in the Actor's Career. Watch and Vote!

"Maybe you’ve seen TimeCop, which is like Looper, starring Bruce Willis but like a million times better." Guess who's back? Back again.  It’s no secret I’m the biggest Jean-Claude Van Damme fan in the world. If you think you have a one-up on me, meet me at the Kumite. (Caveat: Must be under 5’5’’ and weight less than 140 pounds.)  Jcvd has seen glory and hell in his lifetime, and over the last few years, approaching his golden years, he’s having the time of his life.  He gained critical acclaimed for his honest, poignant portrayal of himself in the terrific Jcvd (that monologue, man.

Amazon Pilot Reviews: ‘The Tick,’ Jill Soloway’s ‘I Love Dick’ & ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson,’ Ranked

19 August 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jean-Claude Van Johnson

“’Timecop’ is like ‘Looper’ with Bruce Willis, but a million times better,” is just one of the gems spoken in “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” which is as gloriously ridiculous as its title.

What the Amazon pilot lacks in plot — action star Jean-Claude Van Damme comes out of retirement to act as a private contractor specializing in kicking ass and doing the splits — it makes up for with indiscriminate jabs at everything and anyone, including its star, Hollywood, pretentious foodies and even America’s Undulating Beefcake, Channing Tatum. A surprising appearance by Phylicia Rashad, who gamely plays Jean-Claude’s agent, is a comic revelation. She delivers the most absurd movie pitches with such enthusiasm that we’re ready to sign up for the “P.F. Chang’s” biopic ourselves.

The only real disappointment is the lackluster treatment of Jean-Claude’s love interest Vanessa (Kat Foster), who isn’t given much to work with story-wise. »

Interview: The Mind’S Eye Writer/Director Joe Begos on the Importance of Making Movies He Wants to See & More

4 August 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With just two features under his directorial belt, writer/director Joe Begos has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting genre filmmakers working on the independent level. His directorial debut, Almost Human, was a stunning sci-fi shocker and his newest project, The Mind’s Eye, is a balls-out telekinetic war that features some insane practical effects and performances from the likes of Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Tales of Halloween), Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face, Darling), Noah Segan (Looper, Starry Eyes), Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Late Phases), and Jeremy Gardner (The Battery, Spring).

Daily Dead recently spoke with Begos about his approach to The Mind’s Eye, and the filmmaker discussed what inspired his second feature, the importance of working with the right people and making movies that he wants to see as a genre fan, why he’ll always champion practical effects, and more.

There's no doubts that The Force Awakens was very reminiscent of the original Star Wars, for better and for worse, and I think it's safe to say that fans are really looking forward to Rian Johnson (Looper) bringing something different to the saga.
