Clint Mansell Set to Score Ben Wheatley's Adaptation of 'High Rise'

3 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The last feature film score that composer Clint Mansell delivered was for Darren Aronofsky's Noah, and it was certainly one of the finer points in of the Biblical epic. Before that, he delivered the haunting scores for Stoker as well as music for the thriller Filth. But otherwise, he's laid pretty low key, and isn't working as frequently as some of his colleagues. But coming up we're likely to get some magnificent work from Mansell as Film Music Reporter (via SlashFilm) reports that he will be composing the score for High Rise, the adaptation of J.G. Ballard's novel of the same name from Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley. The composer himself confirmed the news on Twitter and is thrilled with the response: Blown away by the love shown to my involvement with @mr_wheatley & #HighRise It means a lot to me and I'll do my best to not fuck it up! »

Busan Film Festival in danger of being "ruined"

11 March 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Panel held yesterday on the “vision for the future and reform” of the festival in Seoul.

The Busan International Film Festival (Biff) held a general public hearing for the “vision for the future and reform” of the fest, led by a panel of directors Im Kwon-taek and Park Chan-wook, producer Jaime Shim, professor Min Byung-lock, producer/distributor Stanley Kwak and Biff director Lee Yong-kwan yesterday (March 10) in Seoul.

The hearing was held in part owing to a mandate from the Busan city mayor’s office that the festival create a proposal for reform ahead of its 20th anniversary. This was in response to a large-scale film industry backlash against the mayor’s request that Lee step down following the controversy of The Truth Shall Now Sink With The Sewol [see separate story here].

Panelists and observers deplored Busan City’s efforts to interfere with the festival’s programming, advised Biff stop taking government money if necessary, and criticized »

Maps to the Stars | Review

25 February 2015 8:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

What’s the Matter with Havana?: Cronenberg’s L.A. Story a Hot Mess of Tangled Ideas

Couched within its episodic instances of harpooning Hollywood stereotypes, there is a rather interesting tale in Maps to the Stars contending as a wobbly family saga of vacuous types tainted by their desperate attempts to maintain a certain visibility within celebrity culture. But it’s an idea lost in its own maddening attempt at actually engaging in the mythos pointedly laid out in its own subtext as pertains to provocative motifs like incest, nepotism, and (literally) ghosts from the past. The result is a maudlin brew of wacky circumstances and over-the-top flourishes that sometimes work, but, more often than not, fall flat the longer running the time wears on. While it very much feels like a Cronenbergian endeavor, its pointed critique of a particular empty headed culture ends up feeling like a series of wink-wink potshots, »

Trailer Trashin’: Guillermo del Toro Returns to Horror in Crimson Peak

18 February 2015 8:25 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. I hope you all had a good Valentine’s Day weekend, and that a lot of you got out to see Kingsman: The Secret Service, which is totally awesome. This coming Sunday also brings us the 87th Academy Awards, during which I’ll be both hoping Michael Keaton wins Best Actor for Birdman, and cursing the Academy for not giving a Best Animated Feature nomination to The Lego Movie. But in this meantime, this week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ is our first look at one of my most anticipated films of the fall, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.

Premise: In the aftermath of a family tragedy, a young author is torn between the love for her childhood friend and the temptation of a mysterious outsider. Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers. »

Early Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak Leaks Online

13 February 2015 7:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: An official version has now launched and can be seen above.

Though it was initially slated to release this coming Tuesday, a low-res recording of Crimson Peak‘s maiden trailer has appeared online, offering fans an early glimpse at Guillermo del Toro’s latest exercise in gothic fantasy.

With a star-studded cast that includes Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and Pacific Rim‘s Charlie Hunnam, the horror flick has undisputedly earned its title as one of the most anticipated scarefests of the year — and for good reason. With del Toro behind the lens, Crimson Peak marks the reputable filmmaker’s first return to the genre while in the director’s chair since the beloved Spanish civil war film, Pan’s Labyrinth.

In case you weren’t already aware, Crimson Peak largely takes place in an age-old mansion situated in Northern England in the 19th century. With Stoker star »

Exclusive: The Voices Director Marjane Satrapi on Cinema’s Depiction of Mental Illness, Working with Ryan Reynolds

6 February 2015 3:32 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In The Voices, Ryan Reynolds portrays Jerry, a mentally ill factory worker who ends up becoming the world’s nicest serial killer on accident. His comedic misdeeds are guided by the voices of his cat and dog and as Jerry’s body count grows, he struggles to maintain some kind of normalcy as his life begins to spiral even further out of control.

Written by Michael R. Perry (Paranormal Activity 2) and directed by Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), The Voices also stars Jacki Weaver (Stoker), Gemma Arterton (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect). The darkly comedic film arrives in theaters and on VOD today courtesy of Lionsgate and, recently, Daily Dead chatted with Satrapi about her experiences collaborating on this unique project with Reynolds and much more.

Fantastic job on the movie, Marjane. It’s really rare to have a movie about a serial killer that leaves a »

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #43. Judith Godrèche (The Overnight)

6 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries” …

Judith Godrèche: Transparent (TV show). 20,000 Days on Earth (Nick Cave documentary). The Difficulty of Being by Jean Cocteau, which I read for the third time but in English this time, which made me feel as if I had never read it before

Lavallee: In Patrick Brice’s The Overnight you take on the role of Charlotte, what commonalities did you find between the character and yourself in terms of motherhood, parenthood, but more importantly, relationshiphood?

Godrèche: I would say that she is very open minded, which I am too in a general way.. She is a solution-seeker in terms of relationship, which I am too. She loves French wine and California. She never resigned.

Lavallee: A familiar face in French auteur cinema for two decades now, I was first wondering how did you come to include professional choices in the English language, »

Review: The Voices

4 February 2015 1:46 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s rare that a movie about a serial killer leaves you smiling, but such is the case with The Voices, the wickedly delightful pitch black comedy where Ryan Reynolds stumbles into the life of a murderer after some prodding by his devoted dog Bosco and his evil cat Mr. Whiskers. Ever since it premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the film’s release. Thankfully, The Voices was just as wonderfully weird as I was hoping for and Reynolds’ performance is nothing short of revelatory.

Directed by Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), The Voices follows a nice-guy factory worker Jerry (Reynolds) whose biggest goals in life are making friends at work that he can take to karaoke and keeping his beloved pets fed and happy. The thing about Jerry though is that he hears voices- particularly his dog and his cat- and after a chance encounter with »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’

25 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anyone who buys a ticket to a film called “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” goes in fully expecting to cry. It’s sort of a given. The surprise, then, is the laughter: the near-constant stream of wise, insightful jokes that make it so easy to cozy up to characters dealing with a tough emotional situation. The story of a high school senior forced to befriend a classmate who has just diagnosed with leukemia, and the sincere, nonsexual connection that forms as a result (sorry, “The Fault in Our Stars,” but there’s no nookie here), this rousing adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ novel is destined not only to connect with young audiences in a big way, but to endure as a touchstone for its generation.

After landing a coveted spot on the 2012 Black List, the coveted assignment went to director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, who worked as a personal assistant to Martin Scorsese, »

4 January 2015 6:08 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Guillermo Del Toro jumps back into horror territory with his first feature film since his big-budget 2013 sci-fi "Pacific Rim." And the cast, including Jessica Chastain and "Only Lovers Left Alive" costars Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska (who shined in gothic pictures "Stoker" and "Jane Eyre") is delicious. Empire Magazine's 2015 movie preview has some intriguing new images (below) from the film, in which Wasikowska is seduced by Hiddleston's charming suitor, who brings her back to the ancestral home he shares with his jealous sister, played by Chastain. Malevolence ensues. Here's the official synopsis: "Legendary Pictures’ Crimson Peak, a co-production with Universal Pictures, is a haunting gothic horror story directed by the master of dark fairy tales, Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy series, Pacific Rim), written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins and starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston and »
