Variety jumps into the deep end of crafts coverage and it's about time

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As one person put it to me, "It's nice to have a trade covering, you know, the trades, because we haven't really had that in some time." Indeed, it's fantastic to see our colleagues at Variety dig in and represent the industry as they are with the newly branded "Artisans" initiative, and it's a long, long time coming. It is and has been an underreported element of the business, but I've happily seen that slowly shift in the decade we've been diligently, sometimes obsessively, covering below-the-line here at In Contention. From the word go, we made these artists a priority around here. They have an insight into the process that is always preferable to the soundbyte-prone "stars" of the circuit, and as someone who has always come at this work from that perspective, those chats are typically the most fulfilling to me. As we've forged ahead, we've witnessed other outlets »

Paul Greengrass To Direct Al Qaeda Thriller 'Agent Storm'

29 July 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The book has not even been released yet, but Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda — which is being developed into a film by Sony Pictures — is already on track to be a massive Oscar contender.

Sony has assembled a team of director Paul Greengrass and producer Scott Rudin, who previously collaborated to make the wildly successful 2013 Best Picture nominee, Captain Phillips.

Greengrass — whose previous films include United 93 and the Irish civil rights movie Bloody Sunday — has a wonderful knack for adapting harrowing true stories into tense dramatizations.

Agent Storm seems like it is right up the director’s alley.

The nonfiction book, which comes out in September, follows the unbelievable account of Morten Storm, a red-haired Dane who adopted radical Jihadism. After a decade of militant extremism, Storm realized that his friends and colleagues had pushed his limits, and were becoming far too dangerous. Storm became a double agent for British, »

New Trailer For Al Pacino's Salomé

29 July 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If your Tuesday needs a few more severed heads than usual, you’re in luck: the new trailer for Al Pacino’s Oscar Wilde double bill of Salomé and Wilde Salomé is here. The play has long been a passion project for the shouty actor, and there’s plenty of excellent Pacino ranting (“I got four days to shoot a 90-minute play!”) for those who like that sort of thing. In the title role is one Jessica Chastain. Her performance predates Zero Dark Thirty and The Tree Of Life, though it was purportedly this play that brought her to the attention of one Terrence Malick.The original play sees the titular Salomé, daughter of King Herod, cultivate an obsession with John the Baptist, leading to dancing, pining and beheading. As Wilde himself wrote, “One should not look at anything. Neither at things, nor at people should one look. Unless it »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review: Marvel At Its Very Best

27 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of those comic book properties that is kind of "out there." Like in way out there. As in way-out-in-outer-space out there. After carefully crafting a compelling cinematic universe, Marvel Studios took a gamble on the property, one that, on paper, could make for an incredible movie experience if done right. I've been a huge fan of the Marvel cosmic universe for decades, and Abnett and Lanning's run on the Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite comic stories ever. But could it truly make for a decent film, or a long-term franchise? I'm ecstatic to report that Marvel has completely delivered. Guardians of the Galaxy is not only a good movie, it's one of the best of all of the Marvel Studios films, and is as good as, if not better than, The Avengers. Seriously.

Hailing from Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and Microsoft’s 343 Industries, the five-part series is set between the fourth and upcoming fifth Halo video games. Now, we have a taut first trailer for the show, which promises lots of brooding actors and an enigmatic storyline – not much of a surprise, seeing as it was written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring.

Nightfall centers on a new character named Jameson Locke (Mike Colter), described as “a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (Oni), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch.” Locke is the protagonist of Halo 5: Guardians, so Nightfall will act as an origin story for the character.

When Critics Hurt Instead of Help

23 July 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the course of reviewing hundreds of movies a year, a critic over-hypes at least one movie; it happens more times than one would like, but it happens. The main culprit is often red-carpet festival premieres that lead to a dizzying high that positively impacts a film’s reception. A plethora of four star reviews that may have only been three or three-and-a-half after said critic digests the film for a week or two more. Eager cinephiles read these glowing reviews out of Cannes, Telluride and Toronto and place those movies extremely high on their most anticipated lists.

Months pass and the film is finally available for moviegoers to see for themselves. You pay your admission, watch the film, and, following the end credits, disappointment inevitably hangs in the air walking out of the theatre. It’s not that the film was bad necessarily, but the hype took hold and »
