Michael Fassbender and Paddy Considine featured in new images from Macbeth

26 August 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new image has arrived online from director Justin Kurzel’s (Snowtown) Shakespeare adaptation Macbeth, which sees Michael Fassbender’s Scottish king heading into battle, along with Paddy Considine as Banquo…

See Also: Watch the trailer for Macbeth

Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of literature’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war torn Scotland.

Macbeth is set for release on October 2nd, with Fassbender joined in the cast by Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Paddy Considine (The World’s End) and David Thewlis (The Theory of Everything).

Film Review: ‘The Park Bench’

19 August 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Say this much for “The Park Bench”: It delivers on its title. Viewers get all the bench they can handle in writer-director Ann LeSchander’s exceedingly modest two-hander, but there’s a shortage of compelling conversation from its occupants. Though broken up by chapter titles, bits of animation and the occasional flashback, the vast majority of the action rides the pine, pairing a high-strung tutor with an earnest literature student for a flirty semester. Nicole Hayden and Walter Perez are winning in the lead roles, but LeSchander barely skims the surface of her book-smarts and his street-smarts, much less the cultural forces that keep them apart. A wisp of a romantic comedy at 78 minutes, the pic stands to come and go quickly from theaters, too, and its ancillary future seems limited to a showreel for its first-time filmmaker and stars.

Frightfest 2015: ‘Final Girl’ Review

18 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Abigail Breslin, Wes Bentley, Alexander Ludwig, Logan Huffman, Cameron Bright | Written by Adam Prince, Stephen Scarlata, Alejandro Seri, Johnny Silver | Directed by Tyler Shields

Each and every year a Frightfest there always seems to be an overriding theme that ties a lot of the films screeening there – be they in the main or discovery screens. This year the theme, at least from the films I’ve seen so far, would seem to be strong women. Be it the strong women that take charge of proceedings in films like The Sand, Stung and Night of the Living Deb or the strong “final girls” in films like Last Girl Standing and this, Final Girl.

Directed by professional photographer Tyler Shields, Final Girl tells the story of Veronica who, after her parents are murdered as a young girl, is groomed by a mysterious mentor to become a lethal assassin, her sights »

Final Girl Review

17 August 2015 10:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Final Girl – not to be confused with Todd Strauss-Schulson’s Hilarious The Final Girls) – is a “cool” movie. Like, swanky-murderers-who-act-like-psychotic-Rat-Pack-members “cool.” But it’s not very sensible, nor does it care about being a nonsensical horror-stereotype-busting acid trip. Tyler Shields is a devilishly creative filmmaker, and there’s a certain amount of respect earned through this wicked battle of the sexes, but as a storyteller, Shields is more erratic than a scat rapper. With that said, the question morphs from “Is Final Girl an enjoyable movie?” into “Do you value aesthetics over substance?” Narration versus cinematic anarchy – take your pick!

Abigail Breslin plays an orphaned girl named Veronica, Shields’ titular “final girl.” After the death of her parents, she’s taken in by a man named William (Wes Bentley), who trains her to be a female assassin with a specific mission. William tells her about a group of men who »

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. stumbles at the box office with just $13.5 million

17 August 2015 2:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. was probably expecting a warmer reaction to the big screen reboot of the classic TV show The Man From U.N.C.L.E., but sadly the film has under-performed at the box office.

Opening on 3,700 screens, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. made just $13.5 million, opening third behind Universal’s Straight Outta Compton and Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation in its third week of release. The reported budget of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was $80 million, so this can’t be seen as good news for Warner Bros.

The Man From Uncle review – lifeless revival

16 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Guy Ritchie’s attempt to revive the Cold War-defying duo Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin lacks spark

If you were a child in the 60s, but born just too late to enjoy that decade’s major pop-culture phenomena when they were fresh, chances are that your biggest thrills were cheap and cheerful derivatives – the Monkees instead of the Beatles, and instead of Bond, American TV show The Man From Uncle. Guy Ritchie’s attempt to revive cold war-defying duo Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin is a lifelessly knowing affair, with its two uncharismatic lead hunks failing to catch the wry rapport of originals Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Dressed up to the nines like an expensively retro aftershave ad, Ritchie’s film is laboriously insouciant – and no amount of funky drumming and lounge Braziliana on the soundtrack can make it spark.

Most enjoyable here is Elizabeth Debicki (from Baz Luhrmann »

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie review: Cold War, lukewarm

14 August 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Guy Ritchie’s spy-themed GQ fashion shoot. Pure popcorn nonsense, sleek and chic and vaguely funny, but instantly forgettable. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’ve literally just come from a multiplex showing of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and already I’ve forgotten it. I seem to recall not disliking it while it was unspooling, so I guess that’s good? Now, though, I’m struggling to come up with a reason for the existence of this movie at all. Was there a demand for a big-screen version of the 60s TV show that I was unaware of? Or has Hollywood simply run out of old properties to do over? Is there a trend thinktank working somewhere in New York or London that is desperately trying to get us all into Cold War chic »

'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' (2015) Movie Review

12 August 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

From top to bottom, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is a good movie and good in some surprising ways. A pair of performances from Henry Cavill and Elizabeth Debicki are outstanding in a movie that's not only fun, but so tongue-in-cheek it's almost sincere. There are some nits to pick and overall it's rather slight, which prevents it from being downright wonderful, but none of this takes away from its overall entertainment value. Henry Cavill's performance as post-World War II smuggler-turned-cia-spy Napoleon Solo trumps any recent iteration of James Bond when it comes to playing the suave, debonaire and downright cool secret agent. This isn't to say that's necessarily what they were going for, but I'll be damned if director Guy Ritchie's intent wasn't to throw a little jab 007's way, dressing Cavill in Savile Row suits, almost visibly winking at Sean Connery along the way. Come to think of it, »

Film Review: Joel Edgerton’s Directorial Debut ‘The Gift’ Shows Psychological Thriller Promise

10 August 2015 9:35 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Of the various genres of films, the psychological thriller is one of my holy grails. A story that highlights the psychology of its characters and their wobbly emotional states, few modern filmmakers dare to compete with the masterminds – Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and more recently David Fincher and Darren Aronofsky – or fail when trying to.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Kubrick’s “Eyes Wide Shut,” Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” and Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” – along with films like “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Se7en,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” “Pi,” “The Shining,” “Memento,” “The Sixth Sense,” “Misery” and “The Usual Suspects” – do the genre true justice. Fast forward to today, though, when we ask ourselves: Who is Joel Edgerton?

He’s an Australian actor – yes, an actor and not a writer or director (until now) – who you may or may not know. He’s on the poster for 2011’s “Warrior” with Tom Hardy and »

Armie Hammer Admits He Was "Way Too Embarrassed" About Doing a Russian Accent

10 August 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

If you're a Millennial, you probably aren't familiar with the '60s TV show new movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is based on, but trust us - it won't matter. Packed with enviable style, vintage cars, and a painfully attractive cast - Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander, and The Great Gatsby's Elizabeth Debicki - the movie aims to bridge the action of a Bond film with the fashion of an Audrey Hepburn classic. In other words, there's something for everyone. We caught up with the cast in London to talk about nailing their accents, underwater stunts, and their seriously '60s costumes. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters on Aug.14. »

Movie Review – The Gift (2015)

6 August 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Gift, 2015.

Written and Directed by Joel Edgerton.

Starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, Joel Edgerton, David Denham, Busy Philipps, Alison Tolman, Katie Aselton, Beau Knapp and Wendell Pierce

Synopsis:

A young married couple’s lives are thrown into a harrowing tailspin when an acquaintance from the husband’s past brings mysterious gifts and a horrifying secret to light after more than 20 years.

While comic book adaptations are the norm these days, another genre that continues to thrive is horror. Horror films are everywhere, whether they are through big-budget ones, cheap hand-held efforts or straight-to-dvd releases (which continue to thrive). But what we are arguably lacking is some good old-fashioned thriller-horror that makes us jump and gets inside our heads to ask: what would you do next? Thankfully, actor-writer-director Joel Edgerton has such ambitions, and his new film, The Gift, looks to fill the void.

The premise is simple enough: relocating »

Watch Jason Bateman confront his past in clips from new thriller The Gift

4 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

We all have a few buried secrets from our teenage years.  For Simon, one of those skeletons from his past has emerged from the shadows, bringing some unwanted deeds from the past to light in the new thriller The Gift.

Jason Bateman mixes things up and puts his comedic talents aside to star as Simon, a man who has moved back to his hometown with his wife Robyn (Rebecca Hall) after spending more than a decade out-of-state.  As Gordon (Joel Edgerton), an acquaintance from his past, invites himself into the lives, leaving mysterious gifts for the couple, he threatens to expose a deep, dark secret that will throw everything Simon and Robyn believe in into turmoil.

Joel Edgerton is quickly becoming a triple threat as he not only stars in the movie, but also penned the screenplay and directed this, his first feature film.  The Aussie actor may be best »

"Candy Everybody Wants" - Check Out the Trailer for Christopher Scott Cherot's Latest, 'Sex & Violence'

3 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

This should come as a welcomed surprise to fans of his charming and hilarious feature film debut, "Hav Plenty" (1997); and while he directed 2 feature films after that (the 2002 retelling of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, "G," notably, starring Richard T Jones), he'll probably always be most remembered for "Hav Plenty" - unless he produces something else that makes us forget it. And this just might be that film... Christopher Scott Cherot has quietly been working on his next feature, for which he's debuted a first trailer, embedded at the bottom of this post. In brief, titled "Sex and Violence! Or: A Brief Review of Simple Physics," »

The Gift movie review: give it back unopened

3 August 2015 5:21 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Descends into emotional idiocy and insufficient intrigue to end in a disgusting place that presumes that a woman is an appropriate pawn in games men play. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh, but The Gift is an infuriating movie on so many levels. It can’t decide if it wants to be serious drama or a salacious thriller, and so it’s nowhere near enough of either, and each aspect seems to be laughing at the other. It touches on sensitive, tangled emotional matters that could easily be the basis for either sort of movie — how the effects of bullying in childhood linger into adulthood; how stress and grief can render us unable to function in daily life; how even the most intimate of relationships can be tinged by a lack of »
