New on DVD/Blu-ray: New Horror and Sci-Fi Classics, Plus the 'Rogue Cut' of 'X-Men'

15 July 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A new sci-fi classic Ex MachinaEx Machina is perhaps one of the most challenging science fiction movies in recent years, not because it contains some kind of Primer-esque plot that's going to require charts and diagrams to figure out, but because so much of the movie is affected by what baggage and preconceived notions the audience brings to it. On the surface the directorial debut of Alex Garland (who wrote Dredd, Never Let Me Go, and Sunshine) is about a brilliant billionaire (Oscar Isaac) who invites one of his employees (Domnhall Gleeson) out to his gorgeous, secluded estate to test out a mystery technology that just so happens to be a robot (Alicia Vikander) with a high level of artificial intelligence.

Alex Garland Talks His "Annihilation" Prep

15 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hot off the success of this year's thought-provoking sci-fi drama "Ex Machina," filmmaker Alex Garland is prepping his next project - a film adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer's acclaimed 2014 novel "Annihilation".

The story follows four people - a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor - who set out on an expedition into 'Area X,' the twelfth such expedition into the mysterious, uninhabited and abandoned area that nature has begun to reclaim. Previous expeditions have been disastrous - fraught with disappearances, suicides, aggressive cancers, and mental trauma.

That book, which won the 2014 Nebula award and the 2014 Shirley Jackson Award for best novel, is the first in a trilogy. Out doing press for the DVD/Blu-ray release of "Ex Machina," Garland spoke with io9 about the progress of his film version and says he's deep in pre-production:

Interview: Alex Garland Talks Going From the Low of 'Dredd' to the High of 'Ex Machina'

14 July 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Two guys and a robot girl. That's all you need to make a killer sci-fi movie. Oh, and the brain of Alex Garland, who cooked up the smart, engaging, often stunning Ex Machina as his directorial debut. If you haven't seen it yet, you can fix that now that the hit movie about two men testing an artificial intelligence is out on DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD. We spoke to Garland, who also wrote The Beach, Sunshine, 28 Days Later, and Never Let Me Go, earlier this week for the Ex Machina home video release and couldn't help but bring up the last time we spoke, which happened to be on the eve of the release of Dredd, the last movie he wrote and produced. That movie has since found its following, but even he'd be the first to say that audiences just were not there for it...

Interview: Alex Garland Reflects On His Career, ‘Sunshine,’ ’28 Days Later,’ Sequels, Subjectivity & More

14 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you want to discuss contemporary sci-fi touchstones of the last 15 years, probably somewhere near the epicenter of that conversation has to be writer/director Alex Garland. The writer behind “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine,” and “Never Let Me Go,” Garland has carved out a niche of intelligent thrillers with thoughtful yet visceral edges and made his directorial debut earlier this year with the well-received “Ex Machina.” One of the biggest indie hits of the year and A24’s highest grossing film to date, “Ex Machina” continues Garland’s moody exploration of dystopian ideas, and how they affect mankind. Featuring a trio of up-and-coming stars —Oscar Issac, Domnhall Gleeson (both of whom are in the upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") and Alicia Vikander— “Ex Machina” plays with the notions of empathy via artificial intelligence in a futuristic milieu (our review). More specifically, “Ex Machina” centers on a gifted computer programmer (Gleeson) who wins a. »

'Ex Machina' Director Says His Next Movie Is Even Crazier Than 'Dredd' and '28 Days Later'

13 July 2015 8:15 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Alex Garland is a beast when it comes to modern science fiction, and the great thing about his filmography is that no two of his movies are quite the same. The restart-the-sun spaceship thriller Sunshine is a much grander scale than the meditative clone drama Never Let Me Go, which is wildly different from the angry rage virus that is 28 Days Later, which is far more action-packed than his most recent sci-fi outing, the terrific Ex Machina, but also isn't anywhere near as weird and violent as Dredd. If you were afraid Garland's next movie would see him leaving the sci-fi genre, we're happy to report there is nothing to fear. He's sticking around science fiction for the foreseeable future. His next project is an adaptation of a recently published book called...

Mark Romanek to Direct Third Movie About the 1980 Norco Bank Robbery. Watch the First One Now.

16 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A 35-year-old bank robbery and shootout will be the basis for the next Mark Romanek movie. The Wrap reports that the director behind One Hour Photo, Never Let Me Go and numerous classic music videos will helm Norco, an action thriller dramatizing the events of Norco, California, on May 9, 1980, which left three men dead, including a sheriff's deputy, and the destruction of 30 vehicles on the street plus one helicopter that was shot down by the heavily armed perpetrators. The incident, which went down as the most violent in American history, also led to the local police departments equipping themselves with automatic weapons, reportedly the first step in militarizing law enforcement on that level. So, the movie will be set decades ago but have a certain topicality given...

Mark Romanek in Negotiations to Direct Bank-Robbery Thriller Norco

15 June 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With today's news that MadRiver Pictures has acquired Adair Cole's Norco script, we're also hearing that Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) is in final negotiations to direct. The thriller is based on the true story of a 1980 bank robbery and manhunt that rocked North Corona, California. MadRiver’s Marc Butan had this to say about the picture and the addition of Romanek: “Adair wrote a script that tells this story with a raw, almost matter-of-fact intensity that it makes you feel like you are there.  Adding Mark to the mix brings it all home, as he is one of the few filmmakers out there who provides the visual style this piece calls for but also gets the performances from actors." [caption id="attachment_252709" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Fox Searchlight[/caption] Getting the tone of this one correct is going to be a tricky balance since it could easily swing too far one way and glorify the criminals, »

North Corona Bank Shootout Movie in the Works With Director Mark Romanek

15 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

MadRiver Pictures is developing a movie based on the landmark 1980 bank robbery shootout in North Corona, Calif., and is in final talks with “Never Let Me Go” director Mark Romanek to come on board.

MadRiver will finance and produce “Norco,” written by Adair Cole. Producers are Marc Butan and Mason Novick (“Juno”) with Edward Fee exec producing and Michelle Knudsen co-producing.

The robbery and shootout saw two of the five heavily armed perpetrators and one sheriff’s deputy killed with another eight wounded. Gunfire damaged over 30 police cars and one police helicopter.

The shootout resulted in police officers starting to arm themselves with automatic weapons, leading to the increased militarization of police forces.

Butan launched MadRiver Pictures in Cannes following an initial capitalization from private and strategic investors and a $30 million revolving equity investment from Vendian Entertainment. The company plans to finance and produce three to four wide release films »

Marvel And Sony's Hunt For Spider-man Is Now Down To These Two Actors

12 June 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While Asa Butterfield may now be out of the running to play Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Birth.Movies.Death reports that Marvel and Sony's hunt is now down to just two actors. Those are Tom Holland (The Impossible) and Charlie Rowe (Never Let Me Go). The latter wasn't mentioned in the report from earlier today, but was said to be testing for the role last month. The site adds that there is actually no real dispute between Marvel and Sony over the casting; instead, both parties are just "exhibiting a lot of caution" when it comes to finding the right actor to introduce as Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War. A reporter from Variety appears to have also confirmed that it's down to these two, so here's hoping we hear something official soon.  This seems to take Charlie Plummer and Matthew Lintz out of the running, and »

Ten filmmakers whose skills would be well-suited to television

10 June 2015 8:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Rian Johnson

The migration of filmmakers from the big screen to the small one is not a new phenomenon, but another team was formally inducted this weekend, with the Wachowskis’ Netflix series Sense8 making its debut. The duo join the ranks of others such as Steven Soderbergh, and they are far from the last ones, as Steve McQueen, Baz Luhrmann, and Amy Seimetz are among those who are poised to make the creative leap as well. There are some filmmakers, however, who have displayed a set of talents that make the idea of them moving to television an exciting one. Here are ten filmmakers who would be a great fit on the small screen in charge of a tv show.

1) Alex Garland

With a writing filmography that includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd, Alex Garland has proven that, no matter the genre, he is capable of telling a compelling story. »

Summer of Darkness: When Did Summer TV Get So Grim?

5 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Think of your summer leisure time -- beaches, baseball, barbecues, vacations, camping, fairs, fireworks, sunshine... What can the TV programmers offer to pull you away from all that?

How about monsters, murders, alien invaders, serial killers, horror, gore, and violence?

Seems counterintuitive, right? And yet, that's what this summer's TV fare looks like, a parade of grimness and bleakness at a time when people are most likely to seek escapism.

This year's summer of darkness began with the launch on Fox last month of "Wayward Pines," the new series based on Blake Crouch''s novels and featuring the signature spooky touch of "Sixth Sense" and "Signs" director M. Night Shyamalan. So far, the show's highlights have included vehicular mayhem, cultish creepiness, mysterious conspiracies, summary executions, and hints of lurking monsters.

Not to be outdone, NBC has "Aquarius," with David Duchovny putting on his Fox "Creepy" Mulder hat as a 1960s »

According to Deadline, Relativity Studios is in negotiations with Andrea Riseborough to play the villain in Corin Hardy's remake of The Crow, which will star Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston as the doomed Eric Draven.

Pressman, Kevin Misher, Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh, and Jeff Waxman. James O’Barr is also on board as a consultant. The Crow will take flight in 2016. »

A "28 Months Later" Is In The Works

12 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Writer/Director Alex Garland, coming off the success of "Ex Machina," is not a major fan of sequels. Yet one of his earliest writing efforts, Danny Boyle's acclaimed zombie drama "28 Days Later," may be getting another one it would seem.

Garland was not involved in the first sequel "28 Weeks Later" and had no interest in a third for several years. However, he now tells The Playlist that a third film is moving forward with producer Andrew McDonald and it came about due to a random idea:

"The rights to '28 Days' were frozen, effectively, because they were shared between Danny [Boyle], [producer] Andrew [McDonald], myself, and Fox. After the second one, none of us really wanted to do another. Fox may or may not have, I don't know.

[Then] about two years ago, Danny [Boyle] started collaborating on the potential to make 'Trainspotting 2,' another sequel. In that conversation, an idea for '28 Months' arrived. »
