21 June 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blade Runner” is turning 35 years old this Sunday, and what better way is there to celebrate then with brand new footage from the upcoming sequel? “Blade Runner 2049” is still months away, but People has debuted a new behind-the-scenes featurette that includes never-before-seen footage from Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated next installment.

Blade Runner 2049” stars Ryan Gosling as Officer Q, a Los Angeles Police Department officer who uncovers a nefarious plan to destroy what’s left of civilization, leading him on a mission to locate Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who hasn’t been seen in over three decades.

The sequel is the latest major gig for Villeneuve, whose profile has been rising significantly over the last several years thanks to projects like “Prisoners,” “Sicario” and “Arrival.” The latter earned him his first Oscar nomination for Best Director this year. “Blade Runner 2049” will reunite him with cinematographer Roger Deakins, and the duo have cooked up what looks to go down as the most visually stunning movie of 2017.

Check out the dazzling new footage in the featurette below. “Blade Runner 2049” opens in theaters nationwide October 6.

Blade Runner 2049: Jared Leto Unveils The Identity Of His Blind Replicant Creator

9 June 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to Blade Runner 2049‘s most recent, visually arresting trailer, arguably one of the more tantalizing mysteries in a promo full of them was Jared Leto’s blind replicant creator. “Every civilization was built off the back of a disposable workforce,” he mused, “but I can only make so many…”

Leto’s oddly powerful character, seen comforting a newly-formed replicant, has fuelled heated debate online ever since, and though the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has developed a reputation for bizarre set stories – set stories that largely spawned from his method acting on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad – his involvement in Blade Runer 2049 has us giddy with excitement. If nothing else, we’re looking forward to those scenes he shares with Ryan Gosling’s Lapd detective, K.

Headed up by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Dune), 2049 is still incubating in post-production ahead of its planned October release, but when London »

In case it hasn’t been readily apparent, for the past few years, Jake Gyllehaal has been following good material, no matter where it comes from. “Nightcrawler,” “Prisoners,” “Enemy,” “Nocturnal Animals,” “Life” (yep, it’s better than you think) — whether it’s at a major studio or a small indie, he’ll be there, and that goes for streaming services too.

Dark Universe Still Wants The Rock as the Wolfman

31 May 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last June, a rumor surfaced that Universal Pictures was courting action superstar Dwayne Johnson to portray The Wolf Man in their growing monster reboot universe, which the studio revealed last week will be called Dark Universe. Between then and now, Universal hasn't provided any updates whatsoever regarding their Wolf Man project, but a new report claims that rumors about Dwayne Johnson starring as The Wolf Man are still prevalent, although nothing is set in stone quite yet. The studio's Dark Universe is set to launch next week with The Mummy, so it's possible that the studio could unveil more details about this universe soon.

The Hollywood Reporter has an extensive report on the future of this Dark Universe franchise, where they mention the Dwayne Johnson rumors, although no further information is given. As of now, The Wolf Man reboot doesn't have a release date or a director quite yet, and »

Must Watch: Video – The career of cinematographer Roger Deakins

31 May 2017 6:54 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Chances are, even if you’ve never heard of him, you’ve probably seen some Roger Deakins’ work. The legendary cinematographer, hailing from Torquay in Devon, who has been working within the film industry for over forty years, has over 75 credits to his name since he exploded onto cinema screens back in the late 1970s.

Over the years, Deakins has worked on the likes of Sid and Nancy, Barton Fink, Fargo (in fact, most of the Coens’ stuff), The Village, Jarhead, Prisoners, Sicario, The Shawshank Redemption and Skyfall. Obviously there are dozens of other examples, most of which you can take a squint at in this excellent video which has just made it onto YouTube.

Created by film student James Murphy, the ten-minute nod to Deakins, titled Roger Deakins – Story in a Visual Manner, is a love letter to the director of photography which, quite frankly, rocks.

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.

Darius KhondjiSeven

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 Stunning New 'Blade Runner 2049' Trailer Is Here

8 May 2017 3:40 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The summer of 1982 was an amazing season for movies. On the same weekend in late June, for example, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner opened opposite John Carpenter's The Thing. Both were overshadowed by the blockbuster success of Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial at the box office, but all three remain fan favorites. Fast forward 35 years later and we're eagerly awaiting a sequel to one of those sci-fi classics: Blade Runner 2049. One reason for our excitement is that Denis Villeneuve is directing. He broke out on the international scene with Incendies, which nabbed an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, following that up with kidnapping thriller Prisoners, intense mystery Enemy and the action-packed suspense thriller Sicario.

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Screens Tease A Great, Mind-Bending Odyssey

8 May 2017 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins are a match made in cinematic heaven. From Prisoners to the pulse-pounding Sicario, the award-winning double act has produced a collection of visually arresting images that are so expertly crafted it’s difficult to tear your eyes off them.

That looks set to continue later this year with the release of Blade Runner 2049, the long-in-development sequel that will see Villeneuve and Deakins complete the hat-trick in style – and harken back to Ridley Scott’s genre-defining original in more ways than one, but more on that later.

Nipping at the heels of today’s neon-soaked trailer reveal, Warner Bros. has pumped out a trio of high-res screenshots featuring K (Ryan Gosling) and Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) in the midst of a cagey exchange. The former is a hotshot Replicant hunter for the Lapd while Deckard, a man who has spent the past 30 years in hiding, »

Harrison Ford on Returning to ‘Blade Runner,’ Reprising Deckard Role

8 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harrison Ford has had a career resurgence of late, playing characters he made iconic three decades ago.

The veteran actor reprises the role of Rick Deckard in the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049,” and spoke about returning to the role 35 years later.

“I think it’s interesting to develop a character after a period of time — to revisit a character,” Ford said during a preview event at Imax headquarters in Playa Vista, Calif. It was a very interesting working with Denis [Villeneuve], working with Ryan [Gosling]. It was very gratifying experience.”

“The character is woven into the story that intrigued me,” Ford added. “There’s a very strong emotional context; the relationship between Deckard and other characters I found fascinating.”

Ford was also asked about re-entering the world of “Blade Runner,” a neo-noir aesthetic later adopted by films like “The Matrix,” “Minority Report,” and “Children of Men.”

Blade Runner 2049, a sequel 35 years in the making, is mere months away at this point and we finally have a full-length trailer for it. A brief and very vague teaser was released a few months ago, giving us a sense of the very authentic feel this movie is going to have, but it didn't give us much else. Now, with the release date fast approaching, it is time to watch the new trailer for the long-awaited Blade Runner sequel that serves as some very exciting evidence that this movie is actually happening.

Warner Bros. decided to release the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer online today, the same day that they are doing a big Q&A with the cast and crew of the movie. After months of pretty much only knowing that there is going to be a sequel to Blade Runner coming to theaters, it looks like we »

Toronto: The Cinematic City

13 April 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The most populous city in Canada has appeared on-screen in many different ways over the years.Enemy (2013)

There are many ways in which cities are portrayed in cinema. Sometimes cities are anonymous and nameless, and sometimes cities become characters in the films they are portrayed in. Cities can be merely incidental settings, or the specific locations within a city can be incredibly important both narratively and visually. The people within a city tend to represent the place itself: how they act, how they dress, where they work, how they speak, and what they eat. All of these things can be related to the place they live. Cities are home to an infinite multitude of experiences — people from different places, with different families, different wants and desires and identities.

There are cities that are frequently remembered as being iconic within the world of cinema. Paris, Rome, New York, Venice, Chicago, and London have all received loving portraits in »

’13 Reasons Why’ Stars On How Tom McCarthy and Gregg Araki Set the Tone for Netflix’s Gripping Teen Suicide Drama

12 April 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It sounds like an unenviable task: Make a show about suicide that handles the subject matter sensitively, while also being entertaining. Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” strikes that delicate balance, and according to its young stars Dylan Minnette (“Prisoners”) and Katherine Langford, all credit goes to the powerhouse creative team behind this gripping drama.

Based on Jay Asher’s young adult novel and created by Tony-winning playwright Brian Yorkey (“Next to Normal”), with “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy as executive producer, “13 Reasons Why” tells the story of 16-year-old Hannah Baker (Langford), a vibrant young girl who shocks everyone who knew her when she takes her own life. In lieu of a suicide note, Hannah leaves behind 13 cassette tapes, with each side detailing a reason and person who led her to suicide. As the tapes get passed around to the people named, a shy boy named Clay Jensen (Minnette), who had a crush on Hannah, »

A Change in Oscar Rules Makes One Category More Exclusive, Another More Inclusive, But with an AsteriskWhen the Academy closes a door it opens a window, but only halfway.

This week The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences — the Oscar people — made a couple of significant changes to the nomination guidelines for two major categories, Best Documentary Film and Best Animated Film. In the case of the former, the changes make the category more exclusive, and in the case of the latter, they opened the category to a wider range of voters. Allow me to explain, via Deadline, who broke the news.

The changes in the doc category came about owing to the most recent winner, O.J.: Made in America, which caused some controversy when it was nominated seeing as it’s a 7 ½-hour multi-part, limited-run series that premiered at Sundance but then was released on television, specifically Espn, who »
