A mystical blade sees a whole lot of action in The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman.

The 2010 Chinese action-comedy adventure The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman leads off the first slate of films on the Fox World Cinema label, a premiere line of films from around the world that Fox makes available on DVD — as  well as video-on-demand and digital download — in the U.S.

The first feature from filmmaker Wuershan, The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman is executive produced by director/producer Doug Liman (Fair Game), who was intrigued by Wuershan’s original approach to the martial arts genre.

Tuesday Poster Round-Up

14 June 2011 12:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

1. Heroine: Grade C-

Well, it does look like a genuine magazine cover, unfortunately it isn’t a particularly interesting magazine cover.

2. Angels of Evil: Grade C

The stylized violence is on display, but it still lacks that eye catching spark. The red is always great, but my nemesis, clutter rears its ugly head again.

3. Monk: Grade B-

The simple intensity of Vincent Cassel is what this poster is all about, and really, why shouldn’t it be?

4. Beginners: Grade C

Why is it that Melanie Laurent and Christopher Plummer are the only interesting parts of this poster. Ewan McGregor, the star of the film, seems like he would be more at home in a Gap ad.

5. Bell Flower: Grade B

There is an odd mood to this poster, as if it were dredged from a 1970′s poster scrap heap. It is a comforting nostalgia.

6. Goold’s Gold: Grade »

Theatrical Releases: 'Angels Of Evil'

5 June 2011 10:23 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Michele Placido, director of Angels of Evil (2010), is one of Italy’s most well known directors. An acclaimed actor first of all (particularly well remembered is his performance in successful Italian miniseries La Piovra, which vividly depicted the fight against organised crime and mafia), Placido has been nurturing his talent for directing for some time now, involving himself with brave productions and proving on more than one occasion that he’s not afraid to represent the truth as it is.Read more » »

Audiences roused to Hangover

1 June 2011 8:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Critics may have been reaching for the aspirin, but the comedy sequel's £10.4m opening swiftly rocked Johnny Depp's boat

The winner

Movies that deliver monster openings usually fall into the category of family, fantasy or action, typically based on pre-existing properties such as Harry Potter, Transformers, James Bond or Marvel crimefighters. Comedies, on the other hand, rarely debut in the high single-digits millions of pounds bracket; Sex and the City (£8.77m including £3.65m in previews) and its sequel (£6.14m, no previews) were among the top performers. Bruno, Borat, Bridget Jones's Diary, Hot Fuzz and the second and third Austin Powers movies all opened healthily in the £5-6m range.

Which makes the £10.41m kick-off for The Hangover: Part II an exceptionally strong result, even taking into account previews of £2.03m. It's eclipsed, just, by Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason, although that film's debut of £10.44m was boosted by more extensive previews totalling £3.31m. »

Special Features: 'Angels Of Evil' - Kim Rossi Interview

30 May 2011 11:59 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

Wearing a tank top and looking very down-to-earth, Kim Rossi Stuart tells me he’s tired. Indeed, he’s had a long day of interviews for his controversial film Angels of Evil (2010), and all of them in English - I am actually his first Italian interviewer. As it happens, the interviews have featured very similar questions, with one in particular which he had to answer every single time.

This week's new film releases

27 May 2011 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Heartbeats (15)

(Xavier Dolan, 2010, Can) Xavier Dolan, Monia Chokri, Niels Schnieder, Anne Dorval. 101 mins.

He's young (22), talented, he directs, writes, produces and acts: don't you hate Xavier Dolan already? Those green with envy will find plenty to object to about the French-Canadian's second movie, not least the fact that it's rather good. It's a love triangle for our times: at its apex a charming Adonis who becomes the covert object of desire for two friends, a guy and a girl. Like its characters, it's not quite as sophisticated as it wants to be, but it's honest, accomplished and recklessly romantic.

The Hangover Part II (15)

(Todd Phillips, 2011, Us) Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms. 102 mins.

The location is different (Bangkok – or at least the movie version) but this sequel to the hit amnesiac prenuptial buddy comedy takes no risks with formula or cast (even Mr Chow is back). The adult humour, though, »

This Week In Trailers: Viva Riva!, Angels Of Evil, The Island, Catatan Si Boy, Michael

20 May 2011 6:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? The Island Trailer I don't often kick off things with a suggestion from the peanut gallery but when someone sends you a tip that has »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (12A)

(Rob Marshall, 2011, Us) Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin. 137 mins

Ahoy! Aha! Ahem. The excitement of another rip-roaring high seas adventure dissipates almost before they set sail in this lightweight epic of action set-pieces and people trying to get stuff they want. Depp is business as usual and the presentation is classy, but the new blood brings little to this non-party, which feels less like a story than a succession of twists and swoops along well-established tracks – like a theme-park ride, in fact. Oh, hang on …

Win Win (15)

(Tom McCarthy, 2011, Us) Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale. 106 mins

Giamatti's hard-up lawyer inherits a whole heap of surrogate family issues, and a teen high-school wrestling ace, in a wry drama that doesn't really stray out of its suburban comfort zone.

Julia's Eyes (15)

(Guillem Morales, 2010, Spa) Belén Rueda, Lluís Homar, »
