Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis, and Bill Hader Are Teaming Up for Some Funny Sci-Fi Thing Called The Something

2 February 2016 7:38 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Maybe this'll be something like Dr. Malocchio, the Green Hornet, and the Between Two Ferns host teaming up to create the ultimate space-traveling super squad, or maybe it'll be something else entirely, but Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, and Zach Galifianakis are for sure teaming up for something called The Something. THR reports the movie as a sci-fi comedy about three male space voyagers who stumble upon another ship while stuck on their journey. Point Grey Pictures and Good Universe are producing, with Universal distributing.The trade adds that Rodney Rothman wrote the script and will make his directorial debut with the project, which, if nothing major has changed since 2010, will likely also involve another crew of all female astronauts and will actually be a horror-comedy with some nods to Alien — also, maybe a triple serving of Under the Skin. "It’s the first time they’ve seen women in five years, »

Shuttered A-Film back catalogue finds distributors

2 February 2016 4:01 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As the dust settles after the shock closure last year of A-Film, details have emerged as to what has happened with the back catalogue of the blue-chip Dutch distribution company.

Dutch Filmworks is understood to have taken several titles, among them TV drama Mad Men (one of the key titles for A-Film’s home entertainment division) and features Infinitely Polar Bear as well as the recently released Dutch title Sneekweek.

Jg Ballard adaptation High-Rise, directed by Ben Wheatley and screening at International Film Festival Rotterdam (Iffr) this week, has been picked up by Imagine.

Intriguingly, some old A-Film titles have also been picked up by German outfit Splendid, where ex-a-Film exec Erik Engelen now works. Splendid is looking to ramp up its presence in Benelux distribution.

Engelen confirmed that Splendid is picking up more films for Benelux but said the company is yet to decide whether to release them itself or to work with third party partners »

Here's the new trailer for 2016's most promising horror movie

1 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In his review from last year's Sundance Film Festival, HitFix's own Drew McWeeny had this to say about director Robert Eggers' upcoming period horror film The Witch: "Eggers manages to create a sense of mood and dread that is so suffocating at times that it feels like we're watching something genuinely transgressive, something we should not be seeing." For horror fans in particular, that's a promising sentence. We are, after all, lovers of the genre for its very ability to transgress boundaries, and we're always looking out for the next film that will take us to genuinely unexpected and terrifying places. In that vein, The Witch seems destined to be this year's It Follows or The Babadook: an under-the-radar, word-of-mouth sleeper that gives us something new and compelling to chew on and introduces the world to a fresh and unique talent in the horror arena. Here's the latest trailer, »

Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost In The Shell Movie Hops From Disney To Paramount, 2017 Release Date Still Intact

26 January 2016 7:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite reports to the contrary, Rupert Sanders’ live-action Ghost in the Shell movie remains on course for its March 2017 bow, but rather than Disney helping to shepherd the long-awaited manga adaptation to the big screen, Variety writes that Paramount has now picked up the project and will co-finance.

Indeed, Sanders’ sci-fi picture isn’t the only feature to be affected by the new distribution deal, with fellow adaptation The Girl on the Train also set to be released through Paramount, which also keeps hold of its original release date of October 7, 2016.

Thrusting Under the Skin star Scarlett Johansson into the lead role as Motoko Kusanag – squad leader of the elite Public Security Section 9 – Ghost in the Shell brings the fictional metropolis of Niihama to life in all of its neon-drenched glory. Last we reported, Maleficent star Sam Riley had emerged as an early frontrunner to nab the coveted role of the film’s chief villain, »

Team Experience Awards ... with love to Carol, Ex Machina, Girlhood, and more

19 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, to welcome you to the 4th annual Team Experience Awards, bestowed on the year’s best in film by the Film Experience community (you can read about us here) – sans Nathaniel, our host; you can follow his personal awards here. In the past three installments, we honoured Leos Carax’s Holy Motors (France/Germany), Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave (USA/UK) and Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin (UK/USA/Switzerland) as our Best Pictures.

Perhaps it won’t surprise you that the awards below, particularly in the craft categories, are more or less dominated by a couple of films that we have all been championing throughout the year, but the usual caveats of all our team posts apply to this one as well. Though the final results might be not be shocking, there were bloodbaths in most categories with many strong contenders for each prize. The best actress category’s contenders, »

A24 Joins the Oscar Crowd

15 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here to celebrate our favorite indie distributor. A24 has been steadily been building their reputation since launching about 3 years ago, and yesterday they finally landed their first Oscar nominations. They've previously housed longshot candidates like Spring Breakers and A Most Violent Year, but this year saw three of their films break through: Room, Ex Machina, and Amy.

A24 started 2015 proving that they could compete with the larger indie outfits by delivering at the box office. Ex Machina was a surprise hit and became their highest grosser, with Amy and Noah Baumbach's While We're Young also breaking out. Room could pass all of them with the help of its four major nominations and The Witch looks primed to be late-winter mini-hit, as well.

The nominations feel richly earned, given that they've fostered worthy candidates like Under the Skin, The Spectacular Now, and A Most Violent Year that eluded the awards race. »

Adrian Lyne was one of Hollywood's biggest directors - so where did he go?

7 January 2016 5:16 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By the late 1980s, there were few directors with as much commercial cachet as Adrian Lyne, who began as a well-regarded director of jeans and candy commercials before going on to direct two of the decade's biggest hits: 1983's Flashdance and 1987's Fatal Attraction (the film that came between, the notorious erotic drama 9 1/2 Weeks, didn't fare so well at the box office but became a bona fide hit on home video and in international markets). Though Lyne's career had its ups and downs, he somehow managed to bounce back from every disappointment with a success: after 9 1/2 Weeks floundered, he scored one of the decade's biggest blockbusters with Fatal Attraction the following year. When Jacob's Ladder (1990) failed to catch fire, Indecent Proposal (1993) did just that with over $100 million at the box office. After the $65 million Lolita (1997) was "relegated" to Showtime after no major distributor would touch it, he made a solid »

Watch: 5-Minute Video Essay Looks At The Similarities Between 'Ex Machina' And 'Under the Skin'

5 January 2016 9:57 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more welcome surprises of the past year was Alex Garland’s “Ex Machina,” a movie I had almost zero expectations about. Garland’s directorial debut turned out to be a confident, striking and economical piece of genre reconstruction that uses its veneer of heady sci-fi entertainment to probe unsettling and relevant themes (gender roles, our relationship with technology, A.I.). Featuring soulful turns from Domnhall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac (who gave us the year’s most memorable and Gif-worthy dance sequence), “Ex Machina” is also a thrilling glimpse of where sci-fi might be headed as a genre in the next couple of years. It’s a haunting, admirably scaled-down parable about the God complex and exactly what it means to be human (not surprisingly, the film ended up landing on more than a few Best of the Year lists, including our very own Oli Lyttleton »
