‘Snowpiercer,’ ‘Adoption,’ ‘Leafie,’ ‘Chair:’ Korea, France Build Co-Production Relations

5 February 2016 6:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Paris Images Cinema/Industrie du Reve featured a round table on animation co-production, which included a screening of Jesus Castro’s documentary “Snowpiercer: From the Blank Page to the Black Screen,” about the making of the $40 million South Korean/French science fiction pic “Snowpiercer,” directed by Bong Joon-ho and written by Bong and Kelly Masterson, based on the French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette.

Jesus Castro explained how the film became a cultural phenomenon in South Korea. The film clocked up 650,000 admissions — about  $4.6 million — in France and had a limited theatrical release in the U.S. after discussions about the final cut between Bong and the Weinstein Company, with the film finally released on VOD via TWC’s Radar channel, earning $2 million in the first week.

In South Korea, the film recorded over 10 million admissions. Castro said that the working rhythm on “Snowpiercer” was intense, »

Former Captain America Contender John Krasinski Would Be Up For Another Marvel Role

28 January 2016 1:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s difficult to imagine another actor playing Captain America in the McU now that we’ve seen Chris Evans own the role on so many different occasions over the years. But back before the Snowpiercer star signed on to play the Sentinel of Liberty, there were several other contenders for the part in Captain America: The First Avenger – and a select few even got to the trying-on-of-the-costume stage of negotiations.

One of these was former Office actor and star of Michael Bay’s new movie 13 Hours, John Krasinski. In an interview with Digital Spy, Krasinski reveals that he might still be interested in taking another crack at the McU as a different character – specifically a villain, if he has any say in it.

I’ll take a Marvel movie anytime. I love watching them, so I’d love to be a part of it. The Captain America thing was hilarious. »

Lynda Carter won’t cameo in Wonder Woman

25 January 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Lynda Carter indicated that she’d be open to an appearance in Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman movie, should she be offered ” a piece that meant something”, as opposed to a walk-on cameo.

Well, it seems the former small screen Wonder Woman won’t be making an appearance alongside Gal Gadot’s Amazon Princess after all, with Carter’s publicist telling The Washington Post that she isn’t in the film, but “wishes its success.”

Watch the first footage from Wonder Woman solo film

20 January 2016 12:34 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

On Tuesday night, Warner Bros. gave fans an exciting look at several films in the DC Extended Universe as part of a half-hour special, DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League. Much of the special was devoted to DC’s 2016 outings – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad [watch the trailer here], but we also got a glimpse of what’s to come thanks to concept art that highlighted the other members of the Justice League – namely Aquaman, The Flash,and Cyborg – and the very first footage from the Wonder Woman solo film starring Gal Gadot.

Wonder Woman is currently in production under director Patty Jenkins, but the special still managed to provide an impressive amount of footage from the film, which shows Gadot in action as the Amazonian Princess (reintroducing speed-ramping into the Dceu) as well as a few glimpses of Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. There’s also a »

New Wonder Woman set photos show Gal Gadot wielding a sword and shield

18 January 2016 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince/Wonder Woman can be seen wielding a sword and shield alongside Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor in new set photos from 2017’s Wonder Woman. In the photos, it looks like Prince, who is not in her traditional superhero costume, comes face to face with the sword and shield due to an encounter with an unknown woman. Also noteworthy is that the sword and shield appear to be different than the ones the Amazonian warrior has been seen holding in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check out the pictures below…

The photos come on the heels of the announcement that Connie Nielsen has joined the film’s cast as Queen Hippolyta; additionally, Chris Pine confirmed in a recent interview that the film will be set during World War I.

Connie Nielsen to play Hippolyta in Wonder Woman, Chris Pine confirms World War I setting

15 January 2016 2:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we heard some potential casting news on Aquaman, with Amber Heard (Magic Mike Xxl) in talks to play Mera, and now comes news on another DC Extended Universe movie, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Connie Nielsen has nabbed the role of Hippolyta in Wonder Woman.

Hippolyta is the mother of Diana (Gal Gadot) and the queen of Themyscira; the character made her first comic book appearance alongside her daughter way back in 1941’s All Star Comics #8.

Meanwhile, Chris Pine has been speaking to the Toronto Sun about the Amazon Princess’ solo movie, confirming what we’ve suspected given the set photos: that the film is set to take place – at least in part – during World War I.

“It’s a period we don’t see often; it’s usually World War II,” said Pine. “Our costume design is incredible. »

Through the Looking-Glass…Top 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2017: #7. Bong Joon-Ho’s Okja

15 January 2016 8:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Okja

Director: Bong Joon-Ho

Writer: Bong Joon-Ho

Fans of South Korean auteur Bong Joon-Ho’s 2013 English language debut Snowpiercer will most likely be excited to learn he’s re-teaming with Tilda Swinton for another sci-fi endeavor, Okja, which is the name of a monster befriended by a young girl in a narrative split between New York City and South Korea. Though Snowpiercer received a rather harried theatrical release in 2014 thanks to The Weinstein Company, who wanted to cut the film, Joon-Ho prevailed and the film was a notable VOD moneymaker in the Us. In November, Netflix announced it was financing the production for fifty million (Snowpiercer cost forty two million and was one of the most expensive Korean productions ever). With this coin and creative control, we’re looking forward to what Okja is going to look like.

Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Tilda Swinton, Bill Nighy, Kelly Macdonald, Paul Dano

Watch: 7-Minute Video Essay Explores Ensemble Staging In Bong Joon-Ho’s ‘Memories Of Murder’

6 January 2016 12:24 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Bong Joon-Ho is easily one of the most exciting filmmakers working today. The South Korean auteur is the mind behind some of the most innovative and rousing films of the past decade. From a distance, his works have a tendency of looking like generic genre fare, but in reality Bong deconstructs the borders of such genres, forcing us to reconsider our arbitrarily planted notions, all while retaining a true emotional and cathartic connection to character. “The Host” made horror original and compelling like it hasn’t been in years. “Mother” offered a wildly fresh take at the crime/thriller. And “Snowpiercer” changed gears every time Chris Evans’s Curtis changed train cars (successfully, I might add).
