Our Favorite Films From SXSW

25 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kelly and Aaron both had the chance to go to SXSW this year and cover it for Cinelinx, here's their top movie recommendations that they had the chance to see and you need to see once they're released.

Kelly's SXSW Top 3

1. The Final Girls 

This film took me by surprise, in all honestly I was debating on not going but decided last minute to see it and I am glad I did. I was expecting it to be it a little entertaining because it does have an all star comedy cast including Adam Devine and Thomas Middleditch but i was blown away. With hilarious diagloue and a great meta storyline about modern day teens getting stuck in a 1980's sleep away camp horror, be sure to keep this one on your radar for it's release date. It's one of the most original movie concepts I have seen in a long time, »

Cinderella review: A warm, fleet-footed fairytale

25 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh; Screenwriter: Chris Weitz; Starring: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgård; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: U

On the surface of it, Disney's decision to frontload their updated live-action Cinderella with a brand new Frozen short looks like a bad move. A large part of Frozen's appeal with critics (if not with kids) was its subversive treatment of familiar storybook tropes like "true love's kiss", where Princess Elsa's relationship with her estranged sister became the central focus and romance was an afterthought. Surely attaching Frozen Fever could only emphasise how creaky and regressive the Cinderella story now looks.

But of course, Cinderella has endured for a reason. Director Kenneth Branagh has a steady handle on both the wonder and the humanity of the story, which was originally set to be adapted by Never Let Me Go's Mark Romanek. Though an intriguing prospect, Romanek's »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

SXSW 2015 Ex Machina Roundtable Ft. Writer/Director Alex Garland and star Oscar Isaac

21 March 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ex Machina was without argument the hottest premiere at SXSW 2015. The line around Paramount circled, back and forth and began wrapping the adjacent building even. When Director Alex Garland and stars Oscar Isaac, and Domhnall Gleeson hit the stage to present the film the rally cries violently approved. And the energy wasn't all for nothing, Ex Machina proved exceptionally seductive cinema. I was fortunate enough to attend the Ex Machina roundtable, with Alex Garland, and Oscar Isaac, to get a first hand opportunity to work out the big ideas and questions the film provokes. 

All non cinelinx labeled Q's, asked by other Film Journalists. And all non-cinelinx answers Paraphrased.

 

Q. On that dance scene...

 

A. Oscar Isaac explains that there was a lot of preparation, and rehearsals, and that Alex Garland (Writer/Director) would look over it, and join in on occasion. 

 

Q. On the dance coming out of left field. »

'Ex Machina' (2015) Movie Review

21 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made no secret about my love of theater on this website. Granted, a lot of that love has been reserved for musicals, but the love really stretches beyond that. Theater has the ability to put two people in a room and let dialogue and acting dictate a story in a way I find endlessly engrossing. Movies that employ this kind of storytelling are often dinged for being "too stagey" or "not cinematic enough". People want plays and musicals opened up for a more visual, less aural experience. It's not necessary, and can actually hurt what makes the piece interesting to begin with. Ex Machina isn't adapted from a stage play, but it employs the stage tactic of simply sitting two people in front of one another to hash out their ideas and emotions verbally. The result is intelligent, entertaining, pulp science fiction at its best. The questions proposed in »

Review: Alex Garland's 'Ex Machina' Asks Provocative A.I. Questions

20 March 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Artificial intelligence seems to be a popular topic in science fiction these days–between giving life to a robot in Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, to extending life in Wally Pfister's Transcendence. The latest A.I. tale is Ex Machina, the feature directing debut of sci-fi screenwriter Alex Garland, whose past work includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go and Dredd. How does he fare bringing to life his own script? Better than expected. Ex Machina is an engaging, amusing sci-fi thriller that literally asks provocative questions, with smart lines of dialogue that touch upon fascinating, honest topics. Garland digs deep with this movie, bringing up questions and concerns about artificial intelligence that not many others have really addressed. There's no question that Garland is a very capable science fiction storyteller, and his expertise in writing is obvious as the script for Ex Machina is sleek and sexy. Essentially, »

18 March 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Ex Machina, the directorial debut from screenwriter and producer Alex Garland (Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Dredd) may be the antidote for your original sci-fi blues. At least that’s what the response in the film’s run in the UK and other countries suggests, and what the very positive reviews out of SXSW seem […]

Watch: Fascinating, Side-by-Side Examination of the First and Final Frames from 55 Films

17 March 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Editor Jacob T. Swinney has created a fascinating five minute video featuring the first and final shots from 55 different films. In some cases we can attempt to draw meaning from what we're seeing and in others there doesn't appear to be much rhyme or reason, but that in itself can offer a window into what the director was attempting to achieve. My only complaint with the video is the fact Swinney didn't include the film titles in the actual video, opting instead to list them in the film's description. While the majority of the images are recognizable enough, I did find myself looking at the descriptions here and there, taking me out of the video for a second and ultimately causing me to have to pause the video overall. Not a major complaint, just more a compliment in fact to the engrossing nature of what was created. I personally find the images of Birdman, »

SXSW: 13 Buzziest Movies at This Year’s Film Festival

13 March 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SXSW kicks off on Friday, with thousands arriving in Austin, Texas, to attend the film festival component. While there won’t be as many distribution deals as at Sundance or Toronto, SXSW can offer a strong launching pad for upcoming releases — last year, both “Neighbors” and “Chef” attracted lots of attention in Texas to  before they went on to becomes box office hits. And, of course, the festival is also as a showcase for smaller films seeking buyers, such as the Katie Holmes drama “Mania Days.” Here are the 13 buzziest titles playing at SXSW this year.

1. “Trainwreck

The hottest ticket at SXSW will be for Judd Apatow’s new comedy starring Amy Schumer as a thirtysomething journalist who, after a series of one-night stands, sparks a connection with a subject she’s profiling (Bill Hader). Over the years, Apatow has helped launch the careers of some of Hollywood’s biggest »

Bippity Boppity…Boo: Branagh’s Fairy Tale for Hire

Does anyone remember when Kenneth Branagh was directing superior cinematic adaptations of Shakespeare before eventually becoming the director known for Thor (2010) and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)? Well, in the mix of recent live-action fairy tale adaptations from Disney, he’s scored another cookie-cutter dud with Cinderella, a film so pronouncedly square and resolutely mimed that it could only possibly feel relevant to those severely and distantly removed from the classic fairy tale.

Without any sort of modifications to the culturally prolific tale, whatsoever, we meet a young girl named Ella (eventually played by Lily James), who has rich parents (Ben Chaplin, Hayley Atwell). They’re not royalty, but they are rich, and treat their little girl as perfect as she could be treated. But the mother dies from some kind of a disease, but looks ravishing right till the very end. »

Top Ten Most Anticipated Films of the 2015 SXSW Film Festival

10 March 2015 3:13 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The South by Southwest Film Festival is starting up this Friday, and I could not be more excited. This is my fourth year of attending the fest, and each year brings about a couple of films I love. What is also great about SXSW is, unlike Toronto or Cannes, there is plenty of room for discovery. Many films are making their world premieres here from lesser known filmmakers. SXSW also brings together an eclectic assortment of genres for the program, from indie dramas to horror films to science-fiction to you name it. I think going to those aforementioned festivals and just seeing "prestige pictures" continuously could get a bit boring. Sure, SXSW has a higher risk for a terrible movie, but the risk is exciting. Consequently, making a most anticipated list for a festival offering a lot of discoveries seems like a contradiction. But, of course, if you look through the program, »

Scott Rudin To Produce "Buried Giant"

9 March 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Producer Scott Rudin has reportedly picked up the option for a film adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's long-awaited novel "The Buried Giant" which was just published.

The book marks the "Never Let Me Go" and "Remains Of The Day" author's first published work in a decade and is set in a mythologised fifth-century Britain where trolls, ogres, dragons and giants reside.

The story follows an elderly couple who decide to undertake a journey to find the son they have not seen for several years. One problem though, a mysterious mist is enveloping the land, causing amnesia in all its inhabitants.

The author calls it a "neutral environment to explore the idea of collective memory and how societies heal after atrocities by forgetting the past." No word on who will adapt the script, though Ishiguro has familiarity with screenplays as he penned the original script for 2005's "The White Countess".

Scott Rudin to adapt Kazuo Ishiguro’s ‘The Buried Giant’

6 March 2015 7:39 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Although Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Buried Giant was only released days ago on March 3, 2015, Scott Rudin is already slated to adapt the book into a film, Deadline is reporting.

Ishiguro’s novels have found success in Hollywood before. In 1993, The Remains of the Day garnered eight Oscar nominations and showcased the skills of actors Emma Thompson and Anthony Hopkins. In 2010, Andrew Garfield, Keira Knightley, and Carey Mulligan starred in the adapted sci-fi high-concept drama Never Let Me Go.

Both films based on Ishiguro’s work were well-received, so it comes as faint surprise that his latest book, one where a family must find their son in a fictionalized war-torn post-medieval England, was snapped up by Rudin. The director will purportedly start putting together his team and begin work while the Jobs biopic languishes. Little is known about the direction of the movie, except by those who’ve already read the novel, »

New EX_MACHINA Trailer Brings Designs And Curves

When Apple's Jony Ive wanted to bring curves to computers and software, I am not sure this was the end-game. It may very well have been, but leave it to science-fiction screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go) to bring an element of sexuality and philosophy to this artificial intelligence thriller, which just happens to also be his directorial debut.  Ex_Machina, is a single location, three-hander drama, starring Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander.

Watch: The New 'Ex Machina' Trailer is Ready to Test You

3 March 2015 9:33 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alex Garland's "Ex Machina" is on Indiewire's list of the most anticipated indie films of 2015, and for good reason. We are really, really aching for some good sci-fi, and Garland, having written "28 Days Later," "Sunshine" and "Never Let Me Go," is poised to bring it to us in his directorial debut. The film stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb Smith, a programmer at an internet-search giant who wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company's brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). The official synopsis continues: "Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated––and more »

Watch: Sexy Robot Alicia Vikander Wows Two 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Stars In New U.S. Trailer For ‘Ex Machina’

3 March 2015 8:57 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Screenwriter Alex Garland has had a kind of Midas touch — he’s written and created a string of genre classics including three films directed by Academy Award-winner Danny Boyle (“The Beach,” Garland’s first novel, then the screenplays for “28 Days Later” and “Sunshine”) and one by Mark Romanek (“Never Let Me Go”). Safe to say that looks pretty good on a resume. But Garland's output suffered with the 2012 adaptation of “Dredd” — a box-office flop that couldn’t gross more than $35 million worldwide. Perhaps because of that bomb, Garland decided to take matters into his own hands with “Ex Machina,” his directorial debut that he also wrote. Set in a far future, it centers on a reclusive genius CEO, a A.I. robot and a young tech employee who wins a contest to spend private time with his isolated boss. The movie stars two upcoming actors from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

8 Books You Need to Read This March

3 March 2015 5:38 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Each month, Boris Kachka offers nonfiction and fiction book recommendations, and you should read as many of them as possible.The Buried Giant, by Kazuo Ishiguro (Knopf, March 3)Ishiguro is a deft gut-renovator of genres, bringing fresh life and feeling to hollowed-out conventions. A full decade after his last novel, Never Let Me Go, turned a Twilight Zone plot into a profoundly sad romance, Ishiguro’s belated seventh novel is a dungeons-and-dragons quest set in post-Arthurian Britain — a land at uneasy piece, cursed with an amnesiac fog that might be the breath of a she-dragon. Even for Ishiguro, it’s a bold departure: highly stylized, alternately stiff and swashbuckling. But the love story at its center shimmers with a mythic and melancholy grace. The Sellout, by Paul Beatty (Fsg, March 3)From the lawn jockeys on the cover to the last bawdy joke, Beatty does not treat race delicately. His latest satirical-absurdist novel, »
