Cap battles Giant Man in early Captain America: Civil War concept art

2 October 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s visual development supervisor Andy Park has taken to Instagram to share a piece of previously unseen concept art from Captain America: Civil War which depicts Chris Evans’ Cap and Paul Rudd’s Giant Man in battle, revealing that in an early draft of the script Steve Rogers and Scott Lang were originally on opposite sides of the superhero civil war; check it out here…

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, »

Enrique López Lavigne on ‘Spanish Shame,’ Pioneering Comedy in Spain

29 September 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian —  One of Spain’s leading producers, Enrique López Lavigne, presented Juan Cavestany and Álvaro Fernández Armero’s “Spanish Shame” at the 65th San Sebastian Film Festival. “Shame” is the first whole series to be screened at the Spanish event and Lavigne is one of Spain’s most international producers having worked on “28 Weeks Later,” “The Impossible” and “Out of The Dark.” The producer is also building a more independent and personal slate with smaller productions such as Cavestany’s “People in Places” and Nacho Vigalondo’s “Extraterrestrial.” “Shame” is his first TV show, produced with Movistar +, but probably not the last. At the festival, Lavigne also participated on a round table on New Agents in the Film Production and Distribution.

A black romantic comedy about a hugely embarrassing couple could prove to be group therapy…

The reaction from the first screenings has been amazing. There are situations in which you know that the main character »

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams – The Impossible Planet Review

24 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams: The Impossible Planet…

Episode two of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is titled The Impossible Planet.  Originally published back in 1953 within the American Science Fiction and Fantasy magazine Imagination, this latest iteration is delivered by David Farr (The Night Manager, Hanna, McMafia) who is handling both writing and directing duties.

Set far in the distant future, we find two disenchanted Interstellar Tour Guides, Brian Norton (Jack Reynor) and Ed Andrews (Benedict Wong), trapped on a backwater planet called Primo76, entertaining droves of tourists with visually enhanced excursions throughout the galaxy.  Then opportunity knocks in the form of a deaf, elderly woman called Irma Gordon (Geraldine Chaplin) and her robot RB29 (Malik Ibheis), who wishes to see Earth one last time and will pay cash to do so.

Seeing this as an unmissable chance Andrews convinces Norton that he can scam Mrs. »

Before he appeared as a costumed superhero, first in Captain America: Civil War and then in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tom Holland portrayed a variety of strong characters, including a young man who must deal with a devastating tsunami and its aftermath in The Impossible.

HFPA at 75: Meet the Foreign Press

2 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the voters behind the annual Golden Globes, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. exert an enormous influence on award season. But who are they? Variety asked five HFPA members to discuss their home territories, and lives on the circuit.

Tina Jøhnk Christensen

(Denmark, member since 2013)

Biggest surprise hit in home territory

The French film “The Intouchables” and the German film “Toni Erdmann” were huge successes in Denmark — both surprisingly so. Also, recently, “Get Out” became a surprising hit in Denmark.

Biggest Hollywood star

The Danes watch a lot of Hollywood films and the biggest Hollywood stars are Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Scarlett Johansson and Viggo Mortensen, who have Danish heritage. But Danes are probably even more interested in Danish stars. Denmark is a very small nation of around five million people, so when Mads Mikkelsen, Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Connie Nielsen and Sidse Babett-Knudsen make it internationally »

Naomi Watts: ‘My soul was being destroyed’

15 July 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

At 32, she was unhireable. At 48, she is unmissable. The Gypsy star talks lucky breaks, bad reviews and being in therapy

“Armchair or sofa?” Naomi Watts wonders aloud, trying to decide where to put us both in her London hotel room. The 48-year-old actor has spent a lot of this year and last portraying a therapist for the 10-hour TV serial Gypsy, and did a good deal of sitting in armchairs for that. She takes the sofa. “This works.”

The day Watts was born, her mother once recalled, the midwife took one look and declared the baby would grow up to be famous. “How many newborns did she say that about?” Watts smiles. In her case, it took a while – the actor did not get her break until she was 32 – but the maternity-ward prediction came to pass and Watts has been established as a Hollywood reliable for years now.

They don’t make ’em like this any more, and the original TV spots for James Gray’s accurate retelling of history almost didn’t know how to sell it. Charlie Hunnam spends his life trying to solve a riddle of the Peruvian rainforest, in between fighting in WW1 and dealing with class prejudice. Yup, one could say the picture was filmed in a ‘classic’ style . . . can a show like that find an audience these days?

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’: How a Sundance Breakout Landed the Superhero Gig of a Lifetime and Didn’t Sell Out

5 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jon Watts is hardly the first up-and-coming filmmaker to be plucked from the indie film fold to helm a big-budget, high-stakes blockbuster. Nevertheless, the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” director was still surprised when Marvel came calling after his second film, “Cop Car,” screened at Sundance in 2015. Over the past few years, hiring first- and second-time directors to direct massive tentpole features has become standard procedure, from Colin Trevorrow to Josh Trank, Marc Webb to Gareth Edwards. When Watts got the call, he geeked out.

“I was so excited to just go to Marvel,” Watts said. “I actually still the visitor’s pass that they gave me to just get on the lot and everything. I wasn’t expecting any of this. It’s like when Bart Simpson goes to New York and he goes to the Mad Magazine headquarters.”

How ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Will Save Sony’s Summer and Launch Several A-List Careers

29 June 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Early word on “Spider-Man: Homecoming” was right: Jon Watts, the director plucked from “Cop Car” obscurity by the production combine of Marvel’s Kevin Feige and Sony’s Amy Pascal, finally made the Spider-Man” movie that Sony (and the rest of us) needed.

It’s highly entertaining. It’s fleet of foot and confident, even though it’s the product of a hugely collaborative effort. And it will yield many dividends beyond box-office returns. Here’s what this new iteration of “Spider-Man” wrought:

1. A directing star is born.

Somehow Watts and a sprawling production team manage to keep the movie on a believably human scale (save for that final airborne set piece). Tom Holland introduced himself as a high-school Spider-Man in “Captain America: Civil War,” so this movie continues from there, with plenty of wit and comedy and a genuine appreciation of what it means to be smart, confident, and »
