Review: Don't Drink the Water—Gore Verbinski's "A Cure for Wellness"

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Jason Isaacs as Dr. Volmer in A Cure for WellnessIt starts with a whispered melody. It will send frissons of familiarity, of a kind of upsetting longing for clarity. You know that song the odd English girl is singing, but you can't place it. Neither can Lockhart (Dane DeHaan, who they might have called Lockjaw, as he can barely seem to spit his words out), which is what draws him into the guts of a mystery. And it draws the film into a slithering spiral, compels us to observe an autopsy of modern horror. What half-remembered giallo fugue is Gore Verbinski spooning up for us like medicine, pinioned to our chairs like one of the zombie patients in the film’s sinister clinic? A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film. »

Luke Davies on 'Candy', mature share houses, and the magic of Garth Davis

19 February 2017 7:34 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

(l-r) Angie Fielder, Luke Davies, Dev Patel, Garth Davis and Dp Greig Fraser on-set.

Aussie screenwriter Luke Davies lives in La with director David Michôd, and is repped by UTA's Bec Smith. Both are former If editors, and Davies himself used to contribute DVD reviews to the magazine. We spoke with the honorary old boy on the phone from Bondi, where he was staying on a layover in Oz late last year.

Your path into screenwriting began with Candy, is that right?.

Yeah. I was always obsessed with film but didn.t know how to break in. So I said to Margaret Fink, the producer, that she could option the book if I was allowed to try my hand at the first draft of the screenplay. That was the beginning of the path that led to here.

Had you been reading screenplays before that point or did you just learn on the job? »

Of Heffalumps And Proles: Where Do Oscar Upsets Come From?

14 February 2017 2:07 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Where do surprises come from? If we knew, they wouldn't be surprises. But it's probably worth looking at the slightly less mysterious matter of Oscar upsets, as the 7,000 or so voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences cast their ballots between now and next Tuesday. By and large, Academy members are a predictable bunch, especially when it comes to the Best Picture award. Almost everyone knew Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech and The Artist were… »

Luc Besson chats about casting Dane DeHaan in Valerian

30 January 2017 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jan 30, 2017

We've noticed that directors tend to get a bit wibbly when talking about actor Dane DeHaan, and Mr. Besson is no exception...

2017 looks set to finally be Dane DeHaan's time to shine.

After starring in Josh Trank's 2012 sci-fi flick Chronicle as an abused lad driven mad with (super)power, and as a troubled soul in Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond The Pines in the same year, DeHaan became a hot ticket.

He's been incredibly picky since, with an appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Harry Osborn and a starring role in the indie rom-com Life After Beth his most prominent roles in the last five years, but »

'Dog's Purpose' and 'Resident Evil' Open as Oscar Nominees Expand

26 January 2017 2:10 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Along with three new wide releases this weekend, it's the first weekend following the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards and several nominated features are improving their nationwide reach, some for a second time. Among the new releases Universal will premiere Amblin's A Dog's Purpose amid some controversy, Screen Gems has Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Weinstein will debut Gold. Beyond that, a lot of attention will be on last weekend's #1 film, Split, and La La Land as it adds 1,271 theaters following its 14 Oscar nominations on Tuesday. At the top of the weekend chart we could see a bit of a tug-of-war as two Universal titles will compete for #1. First we have last weekend's champion, Split, which debuted with over $40 million and has shown good traction on IMDb in terms of page views compared to similar releases and in terms of user rating, which has hovered right around 7.6 ever since release. »

Oscars: The Contenders For The Top Spots And Drew's Picks

24 January 2017 8:35 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Oscars, or the Academy Awards, are one of my favorite award ceremonies of the year for a few reasons. Primarily, it gives all the filmmakers, actors, actresses, and people behind the camera their chance to shine and to be recognized for all of their hard work, they then get to take home that trophy and have "bragging rights" for the rest of their careers. Additionally, the Oscars can create massive controversy like when Citizen Kane, Goodfellows, or Vertigo were snubbed, or lets just look at 1994 when Forrest Gump beat both The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. Even more recently, the 2010 awards where The King's Speech won over Inception, Black Swan, The Social Network, and The Fighter. Have you ever tried watching The King's Speech, and if you have, have you been able to stay awake through the entire movie?

Either way the Oscars are still a fun topic of »
