From ‘Zodiac’ to ‘Mindhunter’: 5 Visual Elements that Define David Fincher’s Cinematic Universe

10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Fincher is one of the most distinctive visual storytellers working today. On his new Netflix’s show “Mindhunter,” the director’s well-established visual style and use of film language is carried throughout the entire Season 1 arc, despite Fincher having only directed four of the ten episodes himself. IndieWire recently talked the show’s principal cinematographer Erik Messerschmidt – who was once Fincher’s gaffer, and shot 90% of “Mindhunter” – about what defines the cinematic style of the great auteur and how he built off the look of “Zodiac” to create something we aren’t use to seeing on TV.

The Color Palette

The imagery in a Fincher film is grounded in realism, but it’s a dark, stylized realism. This is most notable in the director’s use of colors. “[David] has an aversion to saturated colors and magenta,” said Messerschmidt in an interview. “The show has a desaturated green-yellow look, for sure, »

Rami Malek Stuns as Freddie Mercury in Latest Look at Queen Movie

17 October 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bohemian Rhapsody is shaping up to be something quite special. If there's one reason to look forward to a biopic about a famous musician, it's that those movies tend to come with mind-blowing performances. Think of Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line and Jamie Foxx in Ray. It looks like we could be in for another such performance next year, as Mr. Robot star Rami Malek has completely transformed into Queen frontman Freddie Mercury for the upcoming biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. Thanks to the latest set photo, we have another look at just how uncanny the resemblance is.

Director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days of Future Past) shared the latest set photo from Bohemian Rhapsody to his Instagram account. In it, we see Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury performing on stage with the rest of Queen. If one didn't know that this picture was from a movie that is being made, it »

David Fincher Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

17 October 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“There’s a difference between being obsessed and being motivated,” Mark Zuckerberg blithely insists during the opening moments of “The Social Network.” But the thing about the characters in a David Fincher movie is that they never seem to know what that difference is. In fact, the same might be true of David Fincher himself. And thank God for that, because if the Denver native had any idea where to draw the line between determination and dementedness he probably would have left Hollywood after being fired off his first Hollywood feature. Three times.

Ever since he transitioned from visionary music video director to features, Fincher has established himself as one of the most idiosyncratic and indispensable voices of mainstream American cinema. Often described as “the next Kubrick” (even while Kubrick was still alive), Fincher is an unyielding perfectionist working within a deeply imperfect system. From “The Game” and “Fight Club »

Facebook Acquires Tbh, Anonymous Polling App That Teens Love

17 October 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Teens can run from Facebook, but they can’t hide. The social network has bought tbh, an app wildly popular with Gen Z’ers that specializes in positive anonymous feedback, the startup announced on its blog on Monday. Tbh — which stands for “to be honest” — lets users answer innocuous poll questions about their friends, like “who do you trust to sink a 3-point shot?,” or who “should DJ every party.” The app has been a hit since launching in August, hovering near the top of the free iOS apps for weeks; it’s been downloaded more than 5 million times and had more than. »

The Real-Life People and Stories That Inspired Mindhunter's 3 Core Characters

16 October 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Mindhunter, Netflix's latest original series, is an unsettling, simmering foray into the grisly world of serial killer psychology. Executive producer David Fincher's fingerprints are all over the show, which shares the same gloomy color palette and stylized dialogue seen in House of Cards, The Social Network, and Gone Girl. The crime drama's three main characters, however - Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), and Dr. Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) - are plucked straight out of real life. Mindhunter itself is based on the 1995 book by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker called Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit (which also inspired characters in the films The Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon). Although the show's core characters aren't exact replicas of their real-world inspirations, they're pretty damn close. »

Call Me By Your Name’s Oscar-tipped double act on their summer of love

15 October 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Film critics are raving about the new gay romance Call Me By Your Name. Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet talk about filming in Italy, fathers – and their relationship on and off set

When a film is as extraordinary as director Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name, you suspend disbelief. It becomes impossible not to imagine that its characters, 24-year-old Oliver (Armie Hammer), a doctoral student working for a professor of Greco culture in northern Italy, and 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet), the professor’s son, are not out in the world somewhere. You picture them now the film is over, continuing to live their lives and picking up the pieces after the devastating love affair that brought them together in 1983. For although we have arrived at a moment in cinema history where – at last – there are more remarkable cinematic accounts of homosexual love than ever before (Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight, »

'Mindhunter:' Inside David Fincher's Creepy, Groundbreaking Serial-Killer TV Procedural

13 October 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Holt McCallany would like to tell a story about Ed Kemper. The cops that the friendly-seeming homicidal maniac talked shop with at his local watering hole usually called him "Big Ed"; after he was convicted of murdering six young women in Santa Cruz, California, he earned the name "The Co-ed Killer." This particular Kemper tale has the bulky, 6-foot-1 actor up on his feet, moving around the room in the most animated way imaginable; Jonathan Groff, his acting partner-in-crime – and cohort in based-on-a-true-story TV-show criminal profiling – watches quietly, his eyes »

There must be a shortage of actual twins in Hollywood, because actors increasingly have been taking on double duty when the role calls for it.

We're going to see it again this month in George Clooney's Suburbicon, which has Julianne Moore playing twin sisters. Suburbicon follows a seemingly normal family whose lives are rocked after a home invasion. Written by the Coen Brothers, this is going to be one wild family "drama". It's also got us thinking about more occasions when one actor took on the role of siblings. 

Here are our five favourite times one actor played twins:

Armie Hammer, The Social Network

It was a pretty bold move for Armie Hammer to have his breakout role as the Winklevoss twins. We were pretty convinced that the »

Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Drop Creepy Cover of ‘Halloween’ Theme

12 October 2017 9:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To celebrate the Oct. 20 release of horror film auteur John Carpenter’s anthology of newly recorded themes from his films, Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor and Atticus Ross have released a new version of the theme from Carpenter’s iconic 1978 film “Halloween.” The remainder of the tracks on the album were recorded by Carpenter — who directed and wrote the music for films including “The Fog,” “Escape From New York” and “Assault on Precinct 17.”

Reznor says,  “I clearly remember my friends and I at 13 years old conning our parents into letting us see ‘Halloween’ when it came out in 1978. We left the theater forever changed. We were damaged and scarred, with the shit genuinely scared out of us and that theme stuck firmly in our heads. John Carpenter, it’s your fault that I turned out the way I did.”

Speaking about the new version, John Carpenter says, “Moody and dark, Trent Reznor and [link »

“Breathe” aims to return Andrew Garfield to Oscar contention

11 October 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After being snubbed for his performance in The Social Network, Andrew Garfield took a detour from the awards season for a while. Part of that was his turn as Spider-Man, to be sure, though overall he just wasn’t making Academy friendly fare. Then, last year found him in contention for a pair of prestige titles, with Hacksaw Ridge and Silence. The former got Garfield his first nomination, while the latter expanded his range. This week, Breathe opens and hopes to propel Garfield back into the Best Actor field. All of the ingredients are there, so it’s definitely possible that we’re entering a period of time where Garfield will consistently be in the Oscar hunt. The film is a biopic of Robin Cavendish (Garfield) and Diana Cavendish (Claire Foy), a couple that defied the odds in truly spectacular fashion. When Robin is diagnosed with polio and loses the »

Armie Hammer on Getting Naked in ‘Call Me By Your Name,’ Playing Hunks, and His James Woods Feud

9 October 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While shooting “Call Me By Your Name,” Armie Hammer acted naked alongside Timothée Chalamet, but moviegoers won’t get to see every detail. Hammer plays twentysomething academic Oliver, who engages in a passionate love affair with Chalamet’s teen Elio over the course of a languid summer at an Italian villa. Nevertheless, due to a combination of no-frontal-nudity clauses for both actors and creative decisions by director Luca Guadagino, the movie’s sexual imagery doesn’t go beyond Hammer’s rear end — and he’s relieved.

“I have a daughter who will one day go to junior high and it somewhat terrifies me, the idea that people would tease her, like, ‘Here’s a picture of your dad’s dick,'” the actor said after his film screened at the Hamptons International Film Festival, which has become an early harbinger of the awards circuit. “We definitely shot more than you see. »

Based on a True Story: Why So Many Biopics Create Oscar Buzz But Become Box-Office Flops

5 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall is the season of Real-People movies — the biopics that often fuel Oscar hopes. Recent weeks brought “The Battle of the Sexes,” “Stronger,” and “Victoria & Abdul” and there’s more than a dozen to come, including “Marshall,” “The Post,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Current War.” There’s good reason to believe that a biopic might produce awards. In the last five years, 28 of the 100 Oscar acting nominees played real-life characters, as did four of the 20 winners. But when it comes to the box office, the odds aren’t as kind.

Since 2012, there have been about 100 biopics including hits like “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” and “Julie and Julia.” But while recent years featured real-life characters and stories in some of the biggest non-franchise hits, the format may have reached a saturation point.

‘Molly’s Game’ Trailer: Jessica Chastain Is A High Roller

5 October 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Premiering last month at the Toronto International Film Festival, if there was one thing everyone could agree on about Aaron Sorkin‘s directorial debut “Molly’s Game,” it was that it was very… Aaron Sorkin-y. Even if his chops behind the camera still need some work, the dialogue is exactly what you’d expect. It’s no “The Social Network” or even “Steve Jobs” (which was pretty underrated, if you ask me) but it does feature Jessica Chastain gamely chewing into the screenplay while wearing some outrageously beautiful/trashy attire.

Armie Hammer Talks 'Stripping Everything Away' in 'Call Me By Your Name': 'I Didn't Know If I Had It In Me'

4 October 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Armie Hammer's latest film, Call Me By Your Name, is unlike anything the actor has done in the past, which he admits in Out Magazine's November issue scared him at first.

In the film, which is already generating Oscar buzz, the 31-year-old actor portrays Oliver, a graduate student who sparks a romantic relationship with Eli, a 17-year-old boy who lives at the cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera where Oliver is staying.

In the interview released on Wednesday, Hammer admits he initially demurred accepting the offer, telling the publication, "It seemed so subtle, so personal, and so real that I didn’t know if I could do that as an actor."
