The latest installment in the filmmaker's series of journal-films combining iPhone footage and sounds and images from movies. A diary penned with cinema.Journal (6.6.16 - 1.10.17)feat. additional footage from Masha Tupitsyn and Isiah MedinaMy journal-film series (of which this is the third installment) came to be as a means of resolving the points of convergence and departure amongst the environments I occupy and those which I encounter in cinema. I like to view these films as a method of managing the images that take up my thoughts and memories into a new continuity, one in which the distinction between images seen on-screen and those personally experienced is no longer absolute. In dissolving this partition, these films provide a vector for the animation conceptual concerns through cinema - montage fulfilling that which language can only formally describe and vice versa. The following essay outlines some of the concerns this film attempts »
This week, Neil Calloway argues against a return for The Matrix…
So, we’re getting another load of Matrix films. Or we will be if Warner Bros get their way. It would be easy just to throw my hands up in the air and go “Oh, I’m sick of reboots, can’t we have something original?” but just because it would be easy doesn’t mean it’s not true, and it doesn’t mean I’m not going to do it.
Luke Owen offered a robust defence of re-heating the series, and he almost convinced me. Here’s my main problem with it; The Matrix isn’t very good. It’s innovative use of bullet time effects aside, there’s not much there; it’s for people who didn’t manage to get to the end of the chapter on René Descartes in their Introduction to Philosophy textbook, »

Venom is heading to the big screen. Spider-Man’s nemesis, sharp of fang, flexible of morals, will get his own adventure, Sony said on Thursday. The spin-off film will swing into theaters on Oct. 5, 2018. Venom is a favorite of comic fans; the alien has long terrorized the web-slinging hero.
To make room, Sony will move “The Girl in the Spider's Web,” Fede Alvarez’s “Dragon Tattoo” reboot from Oct. 5 to Oct. 19. It will face off against “Jungle Book: Origins,” Warner Bros.’ take on the Rudyard Kipling stories, and an untitled film from Blumhouse, the low-budget horror purveyor behind “The Purge” and “Get Out.”
The release shuffle took place hours after Warner Bros. moved “Aquaman” from its Oct. 5 to Dec. 21, 2018. The studio was filling a holiday season hole left by “Avatar 2’s” delays.

This week, Sony gave us a heap of good news/bad news. Good news: they’ve greenlit “The Girl In The Spider’s Web” and it’ll hit cinemas on October 5, 2018. Bad news: David Fincher is not returning to direct. Given how tedious and demanding it was to make his 2011’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” that’s not necessarily surprising — even if it’s still nonetheless disappointing.

According to trade paper Variety, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are both in the running to play the iconic role of Lisbeth Salander in the forthcoming The Girl In The Spider’s Web, the reboot of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.
We reported the news just yesterday that Sony Pictures are pushing ahead with a complete reboot of the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, putting aside the 2011 David Fincher version which starred Rooney Mara in the role as Salander.
The Girl in the Spider’s Web will be the first in the best-selling series to be produced into an English-language film in its initial adaptation. The previous books in the series have been adapted into Swedish-language films, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a remake of the Swedish film. It became a global hit for Columbia Pictures, taking in over $230 million worldwide.

Sony Pictures confirmed yesterday that it is moving forward with the new adaptation The Girl in the Spider's Web, a novel by David Lagercrantz which continues the iconic Millennium Trilogy centering on Lisbeth Salander, written by the late Stieg Larsson. The studio has set an October 5, 2018 release date for the adaptation, with production set to begin this September under the direction of Fede Alvarez. The production is currently looking for the right actress to play Lisbeth Salander. Now, a report has surfaced that two A-list actresses are already in the running, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
Variety's studio insiders claim that both Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are currently in the mix, as director Fede Alvarez starts meeting with prospective talent. Ironically, Scarlett Johansson was also up for the Lisbeth Salander role for Sony's English-language reboot of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which ultimately went to Rooney Mara, and »
Movies get rebooted at an alarming rate these days, because it seems that Hollywood just can't let a franchise die. (Also: because money.) David Fincher's 2011 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was itself a successful reboot of the 2009 Swedish-language series starring Noomi Rapace (based on the Stieg Larsson novels), and now, the franchise is coming back again with a sequel but with an all-new cast, director, and story. You probably have a lot of questions, so we'll do our best to iron it all out. Image Source: Everett Collection Which book is the next movie based on? Sony Pictures, the studio behind the 2011 film, is adapting The Girl in the Spider's Web into film. Swedish author Stieg Larsson wrote the original Millennium trilogy, comprised of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (all three of which »

The Girl In The Spider's Web is moving forward at Sony with Fede Alvarez taking the reins as director. Monday's announcement revealed that the followup to David Fincher's 2011 The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo would feature an entirely new cast, which meant replacing Rooney Mara in the Oscar-nominated role of Lisbeth Salander. Now, the Don't Breathe helmer has spoken out about the recasting decision, tweeting that it's a director's job to choose the right person for the… »
Fans of David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo are upset all over again with the updated news that a sequel will be moving ahead without any Fincher or stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig. We heard all about the new direction for the property back in the fall of 2015, when it was revealed the next installment would be, out of order, The Girl in the Spider's Web. Here's the latest: So we're really finally getting another movie in the Millennium series this time? Yes, this is really happening, per official Sony Pictures announcement, and it will indeed be an adaptation of David Lagercrantz's Spider's Web. The book is more of a one-off adventure involving hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander and journalist Mikael Blomkvist, so...

Ben Robins with six very different choices for who should play Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web…
Hollywood has spoken and whether we like it or not, the Millennium series is getting a facelift. The original Swedish-language The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo famously kickstarted the career of Prometheus’ Noomi Rapace, whilst David Fincher’s American remake gave Rooney Mara the driving seat as goth hacker Lisbeth Salander. And now it seems, the role is open once more.
With Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe’s Fede Alvarez pushing forward with his own spin on the series, with indirect sequel The Girl in the Spider’s Web heading for a 2018 release, it seems that the powers that be are going for an entire cast overhaul. And as good as Mara was in the role, it might be exciting to a see a new feminine force don Salander’s trademark leather jacket. »

Updated: When asked by a Twitter user why he decided to go forward with an all-new cast, director Fede Álvarez responded with:
"It's said that 50% of the director's work is casting. If I'd just take Fincher's (amazing) casting, I wouldn't be doing half of my job."

Interesting philosophy there. While he is definitely right on one front, it does seem like an unnecessarily egotistical move. But I guess you don't get into this business without a little ego.

Yesterday, Sony stopped beating around the bush and made it all official: the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will arrive on October 5, 2018, with Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez stepping in for David Fincher. However, Alvarez wouldn’t be the only newcomer to the series. As expected, original stars […]

The movie world is still reverberating with the news, long expected and now confirmed, that “The Girl In The Spider’s Web” is moving forward without David Fincher or the cast he assembled for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” As one of our commenters recently asked, “Has there ever been an actress nominated for an Academy Award for a role and then the studio decides they don’t want her for the sequel?” However, for anyone familiar with with drama behind Fincher’s ‘Tattoo,’ they’ll know that producers Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin never wanted Rooney Mara for role, and it appears her growing fame and position as one of Hollywood’s finest actresses hasn’t changed that position.

Sony Pictures has confirmed Lisbeth Salander will finally return to the big screen in “The Girl in the Spider’s Web.” The adaptation of the fourth novel in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series goes into production this September with “Don’t Breathe” director Fede Alvarez. Rooney Mara, who earned an Oscar nomination for playing Salander in David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” will not be back, which means all eyes are now watching closely to see which actress ends up taking on the iconic role.

Plus: SXSW reviews and perfect shots.
You’d think someone like David Fincher would have proven their case for autonomy by now. You’d think that by hiring someone as stylistic and accomplished as Fincher, the studio would understand that the best way to help him make the best movie possible is to get out of his way and just let the man work. It’s merely a case of looking at Alien 3 versus Se7en: in the case of the former, the studio meddled, asserted control, and as a result the film was an utter disaster that Fincher doesn’t even like having his name attached to; in the case of the latter, he put his foot down, made the movie the way he wanted it made, and as a result he became an overnight sensation and a powerful new presence in cinema.
But when it came time for the American remake of the international »

It looks like “The Girl In The Spider’s Web” will give co-producers Amy Pascal and Scott Rudin a chance to make the Lisbeth Salander movie they wanted to do, before butting heads with David Fincher on “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.” Almost every aspect of that movie, from the budget to the marketing, was a constant battle, but the friction arguably first started over the casting of Rooney Mara.
