Video of the Day: Watch a supercut of violence in Wes Anderson films

23 April 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Filmmaker Wes Anderson has, over the years, infused his features with a very distinct style, one that not only sets him apart from other directors in the medium, but also makes his works instantly recognisable. Anderson’s distinctiveness also extends to the way he goes about shooting action scenes, which often pop up in his features, be they fights between siblings, as in The Darjeeling Limited, or full-scale shootouts between multiple people, such as in The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Now Vimeo user Dávid Velenczei has made a supercut examining the myriad ways in which Anderson portrays different violent encounters, from the preparation to the actual action to the aftermath. The video, titled “Wes Anderson’s Violence”, can be seen below, with the following message attached.

I made this montage from the movies of Wes Anderson. The movies are: Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, »

22 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Criterion Collection has announced its new release line-up for June with five new titles set for a Blu-ray release in June.

And on July 21, it will release Stephen FrearsMy Beautiful Laundrette and Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.

The Killers

Ernest Hemingway’s simple but gripping short tale The Killers is a model of economical storytelling. Two directors adapted it into unforgettably virile features: Robert Siodmak, in a 1946 film that helped define the noir style and launch the acting careers of Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner; and Don Siegel, in a brutal 1964 version, starring Lee Marvin, Angie Dickinson, and John Cassavetes, that was intended for television but deemed too »

Criterion July 2015 Releases Include 'Moonrise Kingdom', 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' and 'The Killers' (x2)

15 April 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Criterion has announced their July 2015 line-up of releases and it's a rather impressive one with the most notable title being a brand new release of the Alain Resnais' classic Hiroshima mon amour (July 14), a film I have never seen and there's a small bit of shame in that fact considering its influence on so many filmmakers and its importance in establishing what is now referred to as the French New Wave. The release is not without new features as Criterion gives it the Blu-ray upgrade: New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray Audio commentary by film historian Peter Cowie Interviews with director Alain Resnais from 1961 and 1980 Interviews with actor Emmanuelle Riva from 1959 and 2003 New interview with film scholar Fran?ois Thomas, author of L'atelier d'Alain Resnais New interview with music scholar Tim Page about the film's score Revoir Hiroshima . . . , a 2013 program about the film's restoration »

Exclusive Clip: Meet Mary, The Mind Behind The Sisterhood Of Night

15 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

With a title like The Sisterhood Of Night, images of Hammer Horror classics may come to mind, but director Caryn Waechter and screenwriter Marilyn Fu have something on their hands far more enriching of the teenage experience than just genre alone.Adapted from a short story by Stephen Millhauser, The Sisterhood Of Night evokes a time in a young woman's life when self-actualization, empowerment and community are key. Starring Georgie Henley (The Chronicles Of Narnia movies), Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom) ,Kal Penn (Harold & Kumar movies) and Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad), The Sisterhood Of The Night acts as a modern spin on the Salem Witch trials, exploring what happens when a group of teenage girls shed the world of social media, and retreat into the woods,...

Cannes: 'Standing Tall' to open 2015 festival

13 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A female director will open the festival for the first time in nearly 30 years.

Standing Tall (La Tête Haute), a film by French director Emmanuelle Bercot, is to open the 68th Cannes Film Festival on May 13.

It marks the first time a film by a female director has opened the festival since Diane KurysA Man in Love in 1987.

Standing Tall stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Magimel, Sara Forestier and Rod Paradot, who plays the main character, juvenile delinquent Malony, following his upbringing from childhood to adulthood, as a children’s judge and social worker try to save him.

It was filmed in the Nord-Pas de Calais, Rhône-Alpes and Paris.

Surprising

“The choice of this film may seem surprising, given the rules generally applied to the Festival de Cannes opening ceremony,” said Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the festival.

This reference to a “surprising” choice likely refers to the recent run of star-powered openers including Woody Allen’s [link »

Cannes: Emmanuelle Bercot’s ‘La Tete haute’ to Open 68th Film Festival (Exclusive)

13 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French actress-director Emmanuelle Bercot’s “La Tete haute,” starring Catherine Deneuve, has been selected to open the Cannes Film Festival on May 13, Variety has learned.

The film, which is being sold by Elle Driver and distributed in France by Wild Bunch, follows the experience of a juvenile delinquent named Malony from ages 6 to 18, with Deneuve playing a judge trying to intervene. It’s Deneuve’s second collaboration with Bercot after “On My Way,” which premiered in competition at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival.

It hasn’t yet been decided whether “La Tete haute” will premiere in or out of competition.

Bercot will be the first female director to open the festival since 1987, when Cannes kicked off with Diane Kurys’ “A Man in Love.” Although she began her career as an actress (with credits including “Class Trip,” “A tout de suite” and “Carlos”), Bercot has become better known in recent years as a writer-director. »

Ben Stiller on ‘Zoolander 2,’ Brooklyn Hipsters and His Noah Baumbach Comedy

24 March 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Noah Baumbach comedy “While We’re Young” premiered at New York’s Paris Theatre on Monday night with stars Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried. The indie, which was picked up by A24 out of Toronto, follows a struggling documentary filmmaker (Stiller) who befriends two younger Brooklyn hipsters (Adam Driver and Seyfried). Naomi Watts, who didn’t attend the premiere, plays Stiller’s wife.

The film shot in New York last year, both in Upstate and throughout Brooklyn (including Williamsburg and Greenpoint). “I hadn’t spent a lot of time in Brooklyn,” Stiller said. “I’m from the Upper West Side. I remember going to Brooklyn as a kid, and the neighborhoods are always very exotic to me and so different.” Stiller said he didn’t absorb much about hipster culture during the shoot. “I feel like it’s all ridiculous the way people are categorizing it,” said Stiller. “People are doing their thing, »

Kévin Azaïs and Adèle Haenel in Thomas Cailley's Love At First Fight (Les Combattants)

Love At First Fight (Les Combattants) stars César Best Actress winner Adèle Haenel and Kévin Azaïs with Antoine Laurent, Brigitte Roüan, Léa Pelletant and Pascal Bernagaud, directed by Best First Film César honoree Thomas Cailley. Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. James Stewart's obsession with Madeleine in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, structuring a film in three parts, internal restrictions and an unhealthy diet enter into our 20th Anniversary Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in New York conversation.

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg reunite one more time for new Woody Allen flick

9 March 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If one Woody Allen movie is in post-production that means another is about to begin filming.  The four-time Oscar winner already has "Irrational Man" scheduled to open on July 24 and now some big names are reuniting for his 2016 release. According to Deadline, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis have been tapped as the leads for Allen's latest "Untitled Project."  There are no details on the movie's storyline or locale, but it does mark the second project Stewart and Eisenberg have agree to star in over the past year.  The duo have already wrapped "American Ultra" which will hit theaters sometime in 2015.  Stewart and Eisenberg first appeared alongside one another in 2009's "Adventureland." Over the years Willis has been rumored to star in Allen's a number of films, but this appears to be the first time it will actually come to pass. After dipping his toes a bit into indie features, »

Kara Hayward returns in trailer for ‘The Sisterhood of Night’

6 March 2015 7:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Sisterhood of Night

If you’ve been waiting for Kara Hayward to make another film appearance since her days as Suzy from Moonrise Kingdom in 2012, then do we have a treat for you. Hayward, playing a schoolgirl partaking in a modern-day Salem witch hunt, will be coming to a theater near you this April in her new movie The Sisterhood of Night. The cast also includes Georgie Henley, Laura Fraser, and Kal Penn.

The film, directed by Caryn Waechter, follows the story of a young woman claiming to be the victim of a group calling themselves the Sisterhood of Night. Accusations are made, teens take to social media, and the innocent are dragged through the mud in this 21st century retelling of the Salem witch trials.

The film premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival back in October of 2014, and will be appearing at the Atlanta Film and Video Festival at the end of March. »

See What Happens When 'When Wes Anderson Meets 'X-Men' (Video)

4 March 2015 1:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Diehard Wes Anderson fans and "X-Men" acolytes might not have much in common at first glance, but this parody video reveals the twee side of our beloved superheroes. Patrick (H) Willems made "When Wes Anderson Meets 'X-Men," and it's smarter and more well-made than your typical online video satire. Besides, aren't most Wes Anderson heroes sort of mutants anyway?

The video primarily riffs on "The Royal Tenenbaums," but there's a touch of "Moonrise Kingdom," "Rushmore," and even "Bottle Rocket" in there. Plus, there are loads of "X-Men" references, like "Hope you survive the experience." Let's face it; giving Margot Tenenbaum the mutant powers of Jean Grey is both inspired and scary.

Willems has a ton of other videos available, including some rather inspired director/genre mash-ups like Ingmar Bergman and "The Flash," and Tommy Wiseau and "Batman." Check 'em out. [Via The Hollywood Reporter] »

Beautiful Wes Anderson Video Proves Two Things The Director Obsesses Over

25 February 2015 3:12 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Here.s something you almost certainly never noticed: Wes Anderson has a slight obsession with the colors red and yellow. You probably don.t believe that.s true. Joking aside, there.s a handy video now available that showcases just how often he uses these colors, and it.s pretty damn wonderful. Watch it below! See, what did I tell you? Kudos to Rishi Kaneria for creating Red & Yellow: A Wes Anderson Supercut, which divinely brings together and amalgamates footage from the likes of Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, along with the short films Hotel Chevalier and Castello Cavalcanti. Just in case you didn.t know, that.s all of Anderson.s movies - which suggests that he might have a problem. Could be a medical reason for Wes Anderson »

Oscars: 'Birdman' wins Best Original Screenplay in upset over 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

22 February 2015 8:32 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

A quartet of writers for "Birdman" defied our odds to win Best Original Screenplay at the Oscars on Sunday night. Only 5 of our 29 Oscars experts predicted the Golden Globe champs Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, and Armando Bo to prevail at the Academy Awards. -Break- "Birdman" had second place 5/1 odds at the Oscars with the support of just five Experts: Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Mary Millilken (Reuters), Michael Musto (Out.com), Keith Simanton (IMDb) and Sasha Stone (Awards Daily). This film was also predicted by one of our seven Editors, two of our Top 24 Users, and 25% of our overall Users. Wes Anderson was a three-time nominee this year for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" including his bids for producing and directing. He had lost his two previous times in this race ("The Royal Tenenbaums," 2001; "Moonrise Kingdom," 2012) as well as for Best Animated Fe »

Oscars 2015: Which Film Deserves to Win Best Picture?

20 February 2015 3:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: We don’t always agree, Guy (no two critics ever should), but it’s safe to say we’ve been more simpatico than usual over the course of this very long and happily almost-over awards season. I think we would both argue, for example, that “Foxcatcher” was ridiculously worthy of an Oscar nomination for best picture, and that its failure to nab one seems all the more inexplicable given that Bennett Miller managed to crack the much more competitive directing race. Likewise, I don’t know anyone else who had almost precisely the same reaction and counter-reaction to “Birdman” as I did — an initial thrill that almost completely fell apart on second viewing.

Clearly the industry feels otherwise, if “Birdman’s” presumed Oscar-frontrunner status is to be believed — which I fear it is, even as some of us are still clinging desperately to the hope that “Boyhood” will prevail. »

Oscars cliffhanger: Will 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' be a winner for Wes Anderson?

20 February 2015 4:48 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Prolouge When it comes to the Oscars, filmdom's biggest honour, Wes Anderson has seen his movies limited in nominations. Until this year, he had racked up two nominations for scribing, likely with a quail feather quill on pastel parchment ("The Royal Tenenbaums," 2001; "Moonrise Kingdom," 2012), as well as for his Animated Feature ("Fantastic Mr. Fox," 2009). Part 1 - W. Anderson Then this year, in a sublime irony, his film about a hotel Lobby Boy named Zero was able to score nine nominations. That's the most of any film in contention, tied with "Birdman." Wes is now not only competing again for his writing but also in the both the Best Picture and Director races.  So with such an incredible explosion into the awards, what is the fate of "The Grand Budapest Hotel"? -Break- Updated: Experts' Oscars predictions in 24 categories Part 2 - Check Point 9 categories Perhaps this unpr...' »
