Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Nathan Fillion Cameo Posters Revealed

25 May 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you may now, Nathan Fillion was supposed to have a very minuscule role in this May's hit sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But he was axed, left to die on the cutting room floor. All is not lost, though, as director James Gunn is sharing a look at exactly what this cameo would have consisted of. And it's all spoof posters.

Earlier in the month, Gunn confirmed that his friend Nathan Fillion had a small part to play in Guardians 2. Though his role would have not been an acting one. Instead, Fillion posed for a number of movie posters for a Simon Williams film festival happening at a theater that would have been seen during the Earth attack sequence played out by Ego the Living Planet.

The good news to come from this is that Simon WIlliams is now officially part of the Marvel cinematic canon. Williams »

Venom is a villain commonly seen in the Spider-Man comics. Although, whether or not Spider-Man will be appearing in this film is unconfirmed. The last time we saw Venom on the big screen he was played by Topher Grace in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3.

Exclusive Interview: Director Sanjeev Sirpal and composer Bryce Jacobs discuss their collaboration on Random Tropical Paradise

16 May 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As La La Land reminded us this year, every movie needs to have a good score or theme. Without it, a movie just doesn’t feel complete. Prime examples being Rocky without Bill Conti’s motivating ‘Gonna Fly Now’ theme or Hans Zimmer’s whole Inception score for that matter. They would just be completely different films. Continuing the conversation of importance a score has on a film in today’s market, we decided to speak with writer/director Sanjeev Sirpal and composer Bryce Jacobs and discuss their collaboration on the upcoming film, Random Tropical Paradise which is being released in theaters & VOD June 9th and stars Bryan Greenberg (The Mindy Project), Brooks Wheelan (Saturday Night Live), Spencer Grammer, Jessica Lowe and Joe Pantoliano.

Great Job, Internet!: The search for finality in some ambiguous movie endings

16 May 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Most movies wrap up rather concretely, with little room for debate, while some leave that final door ambiguously open a crack. This leads the way for lengthy speculation for films like Inception, Birdman, Barton Fink, Mulholland Drive, and The Dark Knight Rises that end on a less definitive note.

Fortunately for completists, the YouTube channel Looper just added a new video called “The Most Confusing Movie Endings Explained.” Looper has explored follow-up interviews with various filmmakers, like a commencement address by Christopher Nolan, and investigated certain clues in these final frames, to come up with the definitive takes on these ambiguous endings. So if you really want to know where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character winds up at the end of Inception, what the final moments of Birdman indicate, and what the alternate ending of Vanilla Sky might have revealed, take a look here. Except for Mulholland Drive. Not even Looper »

Kristin Scott Thomas to Play BMW Heiress in Alexandra-Therese Keining’s “Paramour”

15 May 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Kristin Scott Thomas in “I’ve Loved You So Long”: Columbia/TriStar

Kristin Scott Thomas has signed on to star in “Paramour,” a thriller about a doomed romance. Swedish helmer Alexandra-Therese Keining will direct the film, Deadline reports.

Inspired by the true story of BMW heiress Susanne Klatten (Scott Thomas), “Paramour” follows the “powerful woman who chooses to lead a reclusive existence away from the limelight. When the mysterious and seductive Helg Sgarbi enters her life, they embark upon a passionate, illicit affair — but once she is well and truly hooked, Helg reveals his sinister true intentions,” the source summarizes.

Jordan Katz (“Valiant”) penned the script. Meredith Vieira ProductionsAmy Rapp (“Tower”) is producing alongside Occupant Entertainment’s Joe Neurauter (“The Hallow”). Vieira will serve as exec producer. Sales for the project, scheduled to shoot in Germany and Italy this fall, will launch next week in Cannes.

“‘Paramour’ is a thrilling and provocative story about the dangers and responsibilities that one uber-wealthy woman is forced to confront,” said Protagonist CEO Mike Goodridge. “Jordan Katz’s script intelligently captures the intriguing dilemmas facing these two highly flawed characters. The combination of exciting filmmaker Alexandra-Therese Keining and the always compelling star Kristin Scott Thomas make for a heady cocktail which will appeal to adult audiences around the world.”

Keining’s most recent film, supernatural coming-of-age story “Girls Lost,” made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. When we asked her about the biggest misconception about her and her work, she said, “That as a female director, I am only able to do rom-coms.” Keining is currently in pre-production on AnnaSophia Robb-starrer “Just Like Beauty,” a dramedy set in a dystopic future.

Scott Thomas will make her directorial debut with “The Sea Change,” a drama about an unhappy married couple who travel to a remote Greek island. She earned an Academy Award nomination in 1997 for her role in “The English Patient.” Her recent credits include “Suite Française,” “The Invisible Woman,” and “Only God Forgives.” She’ll next be seen in Sally Potter’s “The Party,” which just secured U.S. distribution. Scheduled to hit theaters in February, the black and white dark comedy co-stars Emily Mortimer (“The Newsroom”), Patricia Clarkson (“The Maze Runner” franchise), Cillian Murphy (“Inception”), Cherry Jones (“Transparent”), Timothy Spall (“Harry Potter” franchise), and Bruno Ganz (“The Reader”).

Kristin Scott Thomas to Play BMW Heiress in Alexandra-Therese Keining’s “Paramour” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Cinematographers and the Films that made them great

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

So, we come to the end of this particular series. We’ve covered a number of aspects of the creative input into film-making, including actors, actresses, writers composers, and directors (in two parts). We’ve stopped short of costume, make-up, special effects, art design and others, however our final stop is Cinematography. The Dop exerts plenty of influence over the look of the film. Yes, lighting, production design and the director’s vision are key too, but the consistency and persistence with which certain directors stick with and return to a trusted Dop shows just how much they contribute.

Seven has a unique visual aesthetic. Plenty of films have gone for the “always raining, always dark” approach, but contrast Seven with something like AvP: Requiem for a shining example of how hard it is to pull off effectively. And contrast is the word. Seven »

The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ Tops Social Media Buzz With New Trailer

8 May 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic “Dunkirk” generated the most social media buzz last week, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

Warner Bros. unveiled a gritty new trailer on Friday, following a trailer announcement video on Thursday. Written and directed by Nolan, the film tells the story of the chaotic 1940 rescue of more than 300,000 Allied soldiers who were pinned down by Nazi troops on the French coast.

Dunkirk” has generated more than 808,000 new conversations in social media. The movie hits theaters on July 21, when it will face off against Luc Besson’s science-fiction adventure “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” Several of Nolan’s previous Warner Bros. films — “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Inception” — all opened around the same time.

Warner Bros.’ “Wonder Woman” produced 28,000 new conversations last week in the wake of releasing new images and a preview during “Gotham” on Monday. »

Why Christopher Nolan Must Direct A Bond Film

7 May 2017 6:21 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway argues that Britain’s best director must direct Britain’s biggest franchise…

So it seems like the news that Syncopy will be producing the next Bond was at best premature and at worst totally untrue. It’s a shame, because the possibility that Christopher Nolan is going to direct a Bond film is too great to pass up.

Nolan is exactly the right choice; British, from the same sort of class at Ian Fleming, the right age to have grown up with the Bond films all around him, and a master – perhaps the master – of the big budget, intelligent action movie. As he showed with his Batman films he can take something that is both familiar and a little overblown and reinvent and reinvigorate it and most importantly make it believable.

Ten years ago there was a clamour for Paul Greengrass to direct a Bond film, and you »

“We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.” – Speech delivered by Winston Churchill to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom on June 4, 1940.

Dunkirk Trailer

5 May 2017 1:40 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

As his career has progressed, the anticipation for a new Christopher Nolan movie has equally grown. And it must be reaching fever pitch now for Dunkirk. The first full trailer has arrived and it does look rather spectacular. I'm not entirely convinced by the story being presented on screen, it seems a bit disjointed, but none the less, this is definitely worth a watch! "Dunkirk” features a prestigious cast, including Tom Hardy (“The Revenant,” “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Inception”), Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” “Wolf Hall”), Kenneth Branagh (“My Week with Marilyn,” “Hamlet,” “Henry V”) and Cillian Murphy (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), as well as newcomer Fionn Whitehead. The ensemble cast also includes Harry Styles (One Direction) making his feature film debut. Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) is directing “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the. »

The staggering new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has arrived

Author: Scott Davis

We are in for some real treats this summer – whether in space, in New York, in cars, on the beach, at sea and everything in between, there is something for everyone during the blockbuster season. In amongst the big guns will be the new film from Christopher Nolan, Dunkirk, for which Warner Bros. has just released a new trailer for, which you can view below.

The film is as eagerly anticipated as anything coming out in the next few months and has already been received rave notices after Nolan debuted some footage at Cinema Con back in March, even earning a standing ovation from the exhibitors who saw it. Shot on both IMAX 65 mm and 65 mm large format film stock, the film is as big in scope as anything we are going to see and looks set to continue the fine run of form Nolan has been »

Dunkirk Official Trailer Hits: Still Not Sure What The Film Is About

5 May 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Christopher Nolan is, without a doubt, one of today’s biggest voices in Hollywood. after successfully grounding Batman in the real world with his Dark Knight Trilogy, he essentially gave himself free rein to do whatever he wants. Thus far, he’s given us pretty solid and thrilling films like The Prestige, Inception, and Interstellar, but for his next big project, he is keeping his feet firmly planted on the ground.

Related: Christopher Nolan Comments On Dunkirk's PG-13 Rating

With Dunkirk, we have an action thriller set in World War II. It’s a promising sandbox for Christopher Nolan to play in, and given his storytelling skills, we have little doubt, he’ll make it work, but when the trailer dropped a few months ago, I couldn’t help but feel a bit let down. It was disjointed, nonsensical, and only seemed interested in setting a tone. The result »

Christopher Nolan and James Bond: Here’s Why He’s a Perfect Fit

4 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Christopher Nolan has made no secret of his attraction to James Bond. Ever since 2010, the director who revived the “Batman” franchise with his “Dark Knight Trilogy” has repeatedly expressed his desire to helm a Bond movie. He told the BBC:

“I’ve loved the Bond films since I was a kid. For me, they’re always about the expansiveness of cinema. The first Bond films set up infinite possibilities about the world they create. I’d love to do a Bond film.”

Bond fans went wild when on Thursday an IMDbPro listing of “Bond 25” under Nolan’s production company Syncopy set off a flurry of hopeful Nolan for Bond speculation. After insisting the information was real, IMDb then abruptly removed the listing.

Another Teaser For Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk Takes Flight

2 May 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Time is of the essence in the second trailer tease for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

Coming to us by way of Warner Bros.’ official Twitter feed, if nothing else, the blink-and-you’ll-miss it promo is a pointed reminder of the film’s sheer scale, which is set to recount the remarkable, death-defying tale of Operation Dynamo. Set during the height of World War II, Nolan’s true-life epic is a far cry from the fantastical (and often otherworldly) vistas of Interstellar and Inception, but the director’s eye for scale, practical special effects, and labyrinthine plots remains intact.

Case in point: Dunkirk‘s triptych storytelling format, which is essentially a narrative framework that will allow Christopher Nolan to tell the Miracle of Dunkirk through the lens of three principal characters situated across land, air, and sea. Tom Hardy’s fighter pilot is one such protagonist caught up in the gruelling fight for survival, »

New Dunkirk Trailer Teaser, Full Trailer Hits Friday!

1 May 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Christopher Nolan may very well be one of today’s most recognized filmmakers in the business. Between his work in grounding the character and world of Batman and his Dark Knight Trilogy, and his work in making mainstream substantive films like Inception and The Prestige, he’s made a name for himself as one of the most interesting voices in the business.

His last film, Interstellar saw him venture into the realm of space and time. With each passing movie, it seemed he was moving further and further into the abstract realm. However, with his new upcoming film, Dunkirk, he seems poised to bring things back to reality. The first trailer was an interesting, if not unfocused look at an interesting historical event, but if you were like me, you were left wanting a lot more.

Variety’s Mentor of the Year, Bradley Battersby, Takes Experimental Approach to Teaching Film

26 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Bradley Battersby was hired to head the undergraduate film department at Ringling College of Art and Design in 2009, the program was so small fellow professors on campus didn’t even know that it existed.

“We were pretty nimble, we had a new curriculum and it was a little bland,” says Battersby, who is being honored by Variety as Mentor of the Year, of those nascent days at the Sarasota school. “We had just gone through accreditation, and we had to change everything. I had to get the word out about it, the college didn’t even know we had a film program. They had tried before to get momentum, they had gone through two other department heads, but it was tough.

“Ringling was out in front in terms of making art with computers — in particular, its animation program grew up literally alongside Pixar — so they had tasted success and »
