Sicario Director Denis Villeneuve Explains The Challenge Of Making A Female-Led Movie

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is no stranger to the prestigious Cannes Film Festival, having had many titles from his back catalogue screen there, his upcoming effort – Sicario – is something of a watershed, being his first feature-length film to be selected to screen in competition during the event. The film – about Mexican drug cartels – will have a wider release on September 18th, and stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro.

The most recent films from Villeneuve include the critically acclaimed Prisoners and Enemy, and the successful director recently spoke to The Montreal Gazette on hearing the announcement of the selection of Sicario, expressing confidence in his latest work.

“It’s my best film yet. It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film yet. I take total responsibility for it – whether people like it or not. I had absolute total freedom on the film, »

Denis Villeneuve Says 'Sicario' Is His "Best Film Yet," Reveals Backers Wanted Emily Blunt's Part Rewritten For A Man

23 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you were to ask anyone around The Playlist watercooler what their most anticipated film at the Cannes Film Festival is, you'd likely hear Denis Villeneuve's "Sicario" crop up more than once. "Prisoners" and "Enemy" were very well admired around these parts (and of course, elsewhere too) and the director himself is feeling very confident about his latest work. “It’s my best film yet,” he said at a press conference earlier this month, following the announcement his film had made it into Cannes (via The Montreal Gazette). “It’s the most ambitious in terms of scope. It’s also my most accessible film as well.” It's "...a very dark film, a dark poem, quite violent,” he added, when speaking recently with The Guardian. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio del Toro, "Sicario" centers on a female cop (Blunt) and two male Delta Force rangers who cross from »

Universal Monsters Delayed Along With Pacific Rim 2 And Warcraft

24 April 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though Universal spent its time at CinemaCon revealing dates for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels and announcing a new release date for Furious 8, there are more properties getting shuffled than just those two. In particular, today brings some bad news for monster fans and sci-fi action aficionados.

Universal’s planned ‘Universal Monsters’ franchise has been considerably delayed, with Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy shifting nine months from June 24, 2016, to March 24, 2017. That move also impacts the next, untitled monster movie, which was set to open April 21, 2017, but has been re-slotted for March 30, 2018.

Many are anticipating that The Wolf Man, which Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski is scripting, will take that second date, but Scarlett Johansson is currently being courted for The Creature From The Black Lagoon, so it’s unclear whether that title will get priority should she sign up.

Universal also announced that the Guillermo del Toro-directed Pacific Rim 2 »

Benicio Del Toro Is Ready For Action In First Image From Sicario

22 April 2015 10:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that he’s been booked to helm a Blade Runner sequel that may star Ryan Gosling along with Harrison Ford, it’s fair to say that Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve has officially arrived. But the French-Canadian auteur has really been stunning critics ever since his Oscar-nominated breakout Incendies back in 2010, and the general public is just a little late to the party. Before he heads into blockbuster territory for that sequel, though, Villeneuve will unveil a smaller but also exciting project: drug trafficking thriller Sicario.

Lionsgate just unveiled the first official image from the film, which stars Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, Jon Bernthal and Victor Garber. Honestly, that cast alone would be enough to get most cinephiles in line for a ticket, but what’s really exciting about Sicario (other than that it’s that rare actioner that’s led by a strong female character, a »

Warner Bros. Pushes Back 'Pan' For A Fall Release

21 April 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Warner Bros. Pictures have announced that they have moved director Joe Wright’s action-adventure Pan from a summer July 24th release date to fall October 9th 2015. The press release was announced by President of Domestic Distribution, Dan Fellman, and President of International Distribution, Veronika Kwan Vanderberg.

Fellman said: 

“We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth.”

Kwan Vanderberg stated:

“Peter Pan is a beloved figure the world over, and the fall corridor is perfect for this epic adventure story that explores the origins of this young hero. In many markets we can take advantage of school holidays that ensure a greater »

Sicario: Benicio Del Toro Takes Aim in First Image from Denis Villeneuve Actioner

18 April 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off the announcement that the film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the first Sicario image from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming dramatic actioner. Penned by Taylor Sheridan, the story takes place near the U.S.-Mexico border and stars Emily Blunt as an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro) to take out a Mexican cartel boss. This is one of my most anticipated films of the year for a number of reasons. First off, female-led action films are rare, and Emily Blunt is incredible. Secondly, while I wasn’t blown away by Prisoners, I thought Villeneuve’s Enemy was superb. And thirdly, freaking Roger Deakins is the cinematographer, reuniting with Villeneuve after Prisoners. He’s simply the most masterful director of photography working today, and »

Video Interview: Denis Villeneuve (Sicario)

17 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

While some filmmakers only find out the night before, Cannes Film Festival’s Thierry Frémaux informed Denis Villeneuve that he’d be part of the Main Comp mix almost three weeks back. Having been on the Croisette before with his debut film Un 32 août sur Terrre (Un Certain Regard), and the Directors’ Fortnight was home for his epic short Next Floor and sobering Polytechnique, the Quebecois helmer saw his critically lauded Incendies and Enemy receive a pass from the fest, but it was this work that ultimately convinced backers with deep pockets to have the auteur filmmaker move onto large-scale productions (Prisoners, Story of Us, the Blade Runner sequel), and in turn Sicario is now among the hopefuls for the Palme d’Or.

The film’s Canadian distributor Entertainment One hosted a press conference the morning of the Cannes announcement and we learned that the filmmaker (who is one degree »

Ryan Gosling In Talks to Star In Blade Runner 2

16 April 2015 7:31 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ryan Gosling’s been hot on his heels lately, running from one project to the next. He’s just finished his directorial debut Lost River, and wrapped on Shane Black’s (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) The Nice Guys, and Terrence Malick’s Weightless. He’s currently shooting an Adam Mckay film starring Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, titled The Big Short.  

Now he’s in talks to star in Blade Runner 2 alongside Harrison Ford (whose face graces the new and great Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer) returning as Deckard. Not much is known plotwise, but we know it’s been penned by Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, based on an idea between Ridley Scott and Fancher. It’s supposed to take place several decades after the original, meaning Deckard is appropriately much older (and perhaps still a replicant? But lets not get into that »

A sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner has been in the works for awhile now, but more recently it's been making some real progress toward getting in front of a camera.

Ryan Gosling In Talks for Blade Runner 2

16 April 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you're a fan of sequels to 30-year-old science fiction films that also happen to star Harrison Ford, today has got to be a damn solid entry in your blessed little week. Ryan Gosling is now in talks to star in Alcon Entertainment's upcoming Blade Runner sequel. The nature of his character is being kept under wraps, but expect him to share some screentime with the returning Ford (still playing Rick Deckard, which flies in the face of the accepted theory that he is a replicant). As we learned a few months back, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve will direct Blade Runner 2 from a script by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original film) and Michael Green. The film is set several decades after the events of the original movie. Ridley Scott will serve as executive producer. While I think the first Blade Runner is a high watermark in sci-fi aesthetic, I »
