9 Lessons Studio Films Should Take From The Indie World This Summer

25 August 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been written about just how dismal this year’s summer movies have been, but one of the silver linings in such a poor season has remarkably been indies. Where blockbusters like “The Legend Of Tarzan,” “Warcraft” and “X-Men: Apocalypse” failed, indies such as “The Lobster,” “Cafe Society” and “Love and Friendship” succeeded. And while studios were certainly rolling in cash when it came to “Suicide Squad” and “The Secret Life Of Pets,” critics weren’t exactly impressed. It was a rough season for studio films, but it won’t be a total waste if executives can learn from their mistakes and start course correcting. Below, we look towards the indie world in order to offer up the biggest lessons for studio films.

10 Worst Movie Remakes of All Time

19 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Is the new remake of “Ben-Hur” a disaster? Let’s call it a big mistake, and it’s one that illustrates the key principal of bad movie remakes: To really earn a place on the scroll of shame, a remake almost has to risk tarnishing the reputation of a movie we love. (Bad remakes of mixed-bag films, like “The Hitcher” or “Total Recall” or “Rollerball,” don’t matter as much.) With that in mind, here’s my list of the 10 worst movie remakes.

The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

19 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen. »

Has 'Justice League' Found A Star To Play Villain Steppenwolf?

6 July 2016 7:53 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

"We're not completely closed. We're close!"

That's what Justice League producer Deborah Snyder said during a recent set visit in London. She was responding to questions about whether or not the production had cast anyone to play the film's central villain, Steppenwolf, yet. 

The production revealed Steppenwolf would be the main villain for Justice League, and a deleted scene from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice even offered up a glimpse of what the character will look like.

Some were caught off guard by the notion that they hadn't yet cast someone to play such a pivotal role, considering that interview was conducted on the 31st day of production. You had to imagine she wasn't exaggerating when she said said how "close" they were to making a deal, because they kind of had to be. 

So who could they get? Warner Bros. has a long, storied history when it comes »

Update: Fargo Season 2 Star Bokeem Woodbine Has Joined The Cast Of Spider-man: Homecoming As A Villain

23 June 2016 9:37 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Spider-Man: Homecoming is now shooting, but with every day that passes, the cast continues to grow. The latest addition hasn't been revealed by one of the Hollywood trades, but by a fan who bumped into Fargo star Bokeem Woodbine. He played gangster Mike Milligan there, but is also known for appearing in Riddick, Southland, and Total Recall along with almost countless other TV shows. Who is he playing? Like pretty much every other actor who has been added to the cast lately, we have no idea, though Daily Bugle editor Robbie Robertson feels like a good fit! Of course, there's every chance he could have a very minor role here, possibly playing just a teacher in Peter's high school or something along those lines. Fingers crossed we get an official cast/character list in the near future! Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, and Robert Downey Jr. lead Spider-Man: Homecoming's massive ensemble, »

Colin Farrell: Why I Made 'The Lobster'

13 May 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"So tell me," Colin Farrell asks. "What's it about?"

When The Lobster premiered in Cannes in 2015, the 39-year-old Irish actor was forthright about not understanding what, exactly, was going on in Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos' sci-fi fable, set in a world where single adults who fail to find a suitable romantic partner within 40 days, or risk being turned into animals. A year later, as it opens in New York and Los Angeles today (and goes into wide release on May 27th), he's still not sure — but he has a few ideas. »

Colin Farrell is at his best when he’s not trying to do the movie star thing. For every Total Recall, there’s a Seven Psychopaths. For every Dead Man Down, there’s an In Bruges. His career becomes even brighter when you start to appreciate how he refuses to phone in performances in movies where it would have […]

The 10 Best Opening Title Sequences in Film

5 April 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Title sequences don’t have to be boring. They can be just as exciting, creative, or innovative as the films they introduce. These are our picks for the 10 best opening title sequences of feature films.

Spring is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of brighter days than to celebrate the best film beginnings of all time! Check back all month long as we look at the films with the best beginnings.

The title sequence for a film is more than a bunch of letters spelling words on a screen. A title sequence is an opportunity for a filmmaker to grab the attention of his or her audience. It’s an ideal spot to introduce musical themes, set a stylistic tone, or establish a directorial style. During the opening titles a filmmaker has the opportunity to explain a backstory, show a flashback, or even dictate the setting to the audience. »

Our monthly round up of horror DVDs and Blu-rays, led by the wonderful and terrifying Audition...

So, it seems to be time once again to ask that age-old question: what’s your favourite cinematic depiction of conjoined twins? Ranging from the mutoid majesty of That Guy In Total Recall With The Talking Stomach Baby through to the Farrelly brothers’ gross-out gubbins Stuck On You, Hollywood has carved a progressive path in its depiction of wretched freaks of nature, magical otherworldly beings and monstrous killers. Following in this glorious tradition of stigmatising the disabled (insert Iain Duncan Smith reference here), this month sees the Bluray release of Frank Henenlotter’s classic splatter comedy Basket Case trilogy.

The director of the equally subtle Frankenhooker cut his teeth with his 1982 cult favourite Basket Case, which told the tale of the Bradley brothers, bemulleted Duane (Kevin van Hentenryck), the ostensibly ’normal »
