John Curran's astute and tender Tracks stars Mia Wasikowska as Robyn Davidson with Adam Driver as photographer Rick Smolan and Rainer Bock as camel rancher Kurt Posel. Bock miraculously combines his roles in Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon, Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds and Christian Petzold's Dreileben: Beats Being Dead and Barbara, into an Outback brute able to compete in attention with the growling beasts.
In New York, Curran and I discussed Wasikowska coming to him after Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive "in a state she needed to work through", an unrealised F Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful And The Damned project with Keira Knightley, The Wizard Of Oz, Stardust Memories, basic survival and basic relationships.

Marvel fans who can’t get enough of the demigod Loki may be drawn to the massive monster franchise Legendary is cooking up, as it’s just been announced that Tom Hiddleston will play the lead role in the upcoming King Kong origins movie, Skull Island. A new director has also been attached to the film that will explore the seemingly prehistoric island teeming with colossal creatures.
Legendary announced today that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct Skull Island off a screenplay by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein. Skull Island was revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con during a surprising teaser video that concluded with an amped-up King Kong. In late July we reported that Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) had been offered the director’s chair for the project, but now it is Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) who will helm the large-scale adventure.

The director recently directed several episodes of FX’s dark romantic comedy You’re the Worst and is attached to direct the film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid.

At San Diego’s Comic-Con this past July, Legendary Pictures made a surprise announcement that King Kong reboot featuring the origin story of the colossal beast would be heading our way. Now we finally have a name attached to the movie: Tom Hiddleston.
According to a studio press release, the Only Lovers Left Alive and Thor star will head up Skull Island’s cast in a yet-to-be-announced role. No plot details have been released at this time, but we do know that the film will be primarily set on Skull Island, King Long’s jungle home.
We’ll have to wait just over two years until we can see the charismatic Hiddleston’s adventure on Skull Islandsince the film’s targeted release date is set for November 4, 2016 with production expected to begin next year. »

Legendary Pictures announced today that Thor: The Dark World and Only Lovers Left Alive star Tom Hiddleston is in talks to star in the new King Kong film, Skull Island, with The Kings of Summer and You’re the Worst director Jordan Vogt-Roberts at the helm.
Unfortunately we still don’t know much about the project, though it will explore the titular island that King Kong and various other mysterious and monstrous creatures call home. Previous reports suggested that Attack the Block helmer Joe Cornish was on the studio’s mind for the directing job, but they must have found something special in Vogt-Roberts.
This is not the only high-profile project on Vogt-Roberts and Hiddleston’s plates, however. Vogt-Roberts is already signed on to direct Metal Gear Solid for Sony, though that project will likely get pushed aside for now. Hiddleston, on the other hand, has a few upcoming films on his slate, »

At San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, Legendary Pictures made the surprise announcement that a new King Kong movie was in the works. Titled Skull Island, the film will delve into the location of the iconic giant gorilla’s origin and will hit theaters on November 4th, 2016.
At the time, no other information about Skull Island - including plot details and the creative team that would bring it to life – were given. Legendary remedied that this morning though by announcing that fan-favorite actor Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World, Only Lovers Left Alive) is in talks to star in the action flick, with Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer, You’re the Worst) in the director’s chair.
Both Vogt-Roberts and Hiddleston have a lot on their plates right now, as the former is also attached to Sony’s Metal Gear Solid adaptation, and the latter is in contention for »

When Legendary Pictures unveiled their plans for Skull Island at Comic-Con in July everyone was caught off guard. There was a release date for this King Kong reboot, but not much else besides a teaser trailer. Now we know a lot more. While early reports rumored Attack the Block director Joe Cornish to be in the mix to helm the picture, those duties will now fall to Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who previously directed The Kings of Summer. The film also now has an über-charismatic star in Tom Hiddleston, who absolutely killed it earlier this year in Only Lovers Left Alive. The film will apparently take place almost entirely on the island. Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein has been confirmed to write the script. Skull Island opens on November 4th, 2016. Hit the jump for more. Here's the official press release: Legendary announced its plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic »

September tends to be a relative dead spot at the theaters. Multiplexes are still housing the last vestiges of the onslaught of the summer and quietly preparing for the slow march of prestige pictures that come with the fall and winter months. So instead of spending the time and effort to make your way out to your local theater to catch a screening of Dolphin Tale 2, why not stay in and watch one of these stellar movies from earlier this year on demand?
Director Pawel Pawlikowski made not only the most somber road movie of the year, but shot it in gorgeous black and white. The film follows its titular character (Agata Trezbuchowska), an orphaned nun, who must travel to visit her only living relative before she is allowed to take her vows. Pawlikowski uses this fish out of water tale to explore the complexity and sinful nature »

★★★★☆Implanting the dark heart of Gothic fiction into his signature cinematic carcass of deadpan humour and beatnik contemplation, indie provocateur Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive (2013) is the story of two misanthropic vampires who have been in love for centuries, witnessing the humanist revival of classical art and literature and its sad decline into the vulgar and uncouth yield of contemporary populist culture. Vampires have never seemed as stylish and refined as they do here, inhibiting the poise and self-assurance of a Shoreditch hipster with the style and grace of classically-trained concert pianist. Adam (Tom Hiddleston) is a musician who once gave Schubert a String Quartet, but is now a suicidal romantic.

It’s fair to say that after Twilight many horror fans thought it was time to retire the vampire for a while. The fact is the point about the fanged ones is that they tend not to die when they are meant to, so what they need is something to make them a little more relevant in the world of monsters. A very good way to do just that is to take Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston and make one of the best vampire movies in years, though don’t expect too much horror in Only Lovers Left Alive, it’s much too sophisticated for that.
