William Monahan’s Mojave bought by A24 Films

25 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A24 Films, who distributed recent hits such as Ex Machina and While We’re Young, has acquired William Monahan’s latest thriller Mojave, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Mojave is an intense, classical thriller about a brilliant artist, Thomas (Hedlund), who attempts to escape his privileged existence into the desert only to encounter a homicidal drifter, Jack (Isaac). The chase moves from the spectacular vistas of the American desert to a noir Los Angeles, culminating in a vortex of criminality and brutality as Thomas emerges as an equally dangerous opponent.

Mojave stars Oscar Isaac (Ex_Machina), Garrett Hedlund (On The Road), Dania Ramirez (Premium Rush), Walter Goggins (Breaking Bad), Fran Kranz (Cabin in the Woods) and Mark Wahlberg (The Gambler).

Film Review: ‘Tracers’

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leaping through skylights and surfing down stairs, Taylor Lautner and his parkour crew elevate old-fashioned cat burglary to a feat of high-speed, anti-gravity showmanship in “Tracers,” a project that takes what’s anarchic about the sport and runs, jumps and double-somersaults with it. The plot may be as creaky as an old-timer slinking across rooftops in a black turtleneck and domino mask, but the acrobatic stunts more than compensate, many of them performed by Lautner himself. After 2011’s “Abduction” cast his drawing power into question, this youth-skewing, VOD-driven release could be the “Twilight” star’s last gleaming.

Perhaps that’s overstating the stakes, as it’s only Lautner’s short-lived A-list standing that appears to be in question. Although Team Jacob fans managed to sway “Twilight” producers from recasting his role in the sequels, they haven’t turned out in sufficient numbers to carry the teen wolf into a grown-up career, »

'Mortdecai' Director & 'Spider-Man' Screenwriter David Koepp Thinks There Needs To Be More Spidey Movies

2 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, David Koepp was the noted screenwriter behind the first entry in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy, Steven Spielberg's "War Of The Worlds," and he got a credit on David Fincher's "Panic Room." But he also has his fingerprints on "Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull," "Premium Rush," and, more recently, the big box office flop, "Mortdecai." Still, his dalliance in the world of Marvel does mean he has some insight into how he'd approach the character, particularly now that the series seems to be in trouble at Sony. Speaking recently with Empire, Koepp shared some of those ideas. Now, it should be said, he readily admits he's speaking as if money isn't an object, but his plan to fix Spider-Man? More movies. His concept basically is that there would be a few different iterations of the character all at once, each focusing »

Mortdecai movie review: stinking mishap

22 January 2015 7:46 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This painfully unfunny spoof of teddibly British nonsense couldn’t be less amusing if it were actually calculated to be totally laugh-free. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer was dire

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The strained desperation wafting off Mortdecai is as stinky as… Well, there’s one scene in this painfully unfunny and wildly unfocused spoof of teddibly British nonsense in which the attempt at humor revolves around whether Ewan McGregor’s (A Million Ways to Die in the West, Jack the Giant Slayer) suave MI5 agent will eat a piece of fetid cheese he has been offered to accompany his glass of port — haha! smelly English cheese! — while Johnny Depp’s (Transcendence, The Lone Ranger) shady art dealer and dead-broke aristocrat Lord Charlie Mortdecai regales him with an anecdote about a fart; haha! »

David Koepp interview: Mortdecai, Jurassic Park, Indy 4

22 January 2015 7:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mortdecai director David Koepp chats to us about the film, along with Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, Mission: Impossible & more.

This piece contains spoilers for Snake Eyes and Mission: Impossible (the first one)

David Koepp has a rather solid CV as a director, including Secret Window with Johnny Depp, the underrated ghost story Stir Of Echoes, and the really fun Joseph Gordon-Levitt bike messenger action film Premium Rush. But as a screenwriter, he’s worked on some of the biggest films of the last 25 years – Jurassic Park and its sequel, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Angels and Demons, Mission: Impossible, and Spider-Man.

He’s also had a hand in other notable Hollywood hits (and flops) including Carlito’s Way, The Shadow, Snake Eyes, Zathura, Panic Room, Death Becomes Her, and many, many more. He’s had a fascinating career.

His latest directorial effort is Mortdecai, a »

‘Mortdecai’ Review: Johnny Depp’s Schtick Wears Thin in This Caper Comedy

22 January 2015 12:01 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Desperately seeking a “pretty movie stars chase art treasures in world capitals” vibe, this goofy soufflé ultimately falls flat

I admit to being a big fan of watching glamorous movie stars gadding around world capitols in the comedic pursuit of art treasures; I spent countless hours glued to the TV as a kid soaking in comic soufflés like “Charade” and “How to Steal a Million,” and I’ll even defend the much-maligned “Hudson Hawk” for its efforts to keep the genre alive in our modern, cynical era.

If only I could feel as charitable toward “Mortdecai,” a glamorous, jet-set fantasy »

Film Review: ‘Mortdecai’

22 January 2015 12:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Should the recent surge in male facial hair as a fashion accessory stall in 2015, barbers would be within their rights to blame “Mortdecai,” a perky but obstinately unfunny heist caper with a hero irksome enough to make any happily mustachioed man reconsider his life choices. Directed (but, unusually, not written) by an off-form David Koepp, the film shoots for the swinging insouciance of ’60s farce, but this story of a caddish art dealer enlisted by MI5 to assist in a knotty theft case is longer on frippery than quippery: There’s a fatal shortage of zingers to supplement its exhausting zaniness. Only particularly dedicated devotees of Johnny Depp’s latter-day strain of mugging — here channeling Austin Powers by way of P.G. Wodehouse — will delight in this expensive-looking oddity.

Eric Aronson’s script — his first feature-length effort since 2001’s little-cherished Lance Bass starrer “On the Line” — is based on Kyril Bonfiglioli »

Mortdecai review

21 January 2015 11:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Johnny Depp channels Leslie Phillips in his latest outing, Mortdecai. But is he successful? Not really...

Your enjoyment of Mortdecai is likely going to be based on one thing: how much you can stand late period Johnny Depp. If you still find his faux-British sauntering thing endearing and enjoyable, you’ll probably have a good time. If however, like me, you’ve been growing tired of it since the second Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, you might find it a bit of a chore.

Based on author Kyril Bonfiglioli’s series of cult novels, Depp plays Charlie Mortdecai, an cartoonish upper crust art dealer-slash-conman, with a mansion in Oxford and staring bankruptcy down the barrel. When a rare Goya painting is stolen, old acquaintance and MI5 agent Alistair Martland (Ewan McGregor) throws Mortdecai a bone – retrieve the painting and he’ll clear his tax debt. What follows is a half Bond, »
