Rogue One: Check Out A New Image Of The Villainous Krennic As Ben Mendelsohn Discusses His Character

24 November 2016 6:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Star Wars saga has a history of utilizing some very strong villains, and fans are hoping to see Ben Mendelsohn (The Place Beyond the Pines, Bloodline) continue that tradition in Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In a new interview with Empire, the Aussie actor shared some new details on his character and how he was able to rise through the ranks of The Empire. Plus, even though Director Krennic and Darth Vader are on the same side, it sounds like they are far from bossom buddies. "It's fair to say Lord Vader and he aren't friendly. Darth is very much about the Force. Krennic is force. Not really down with the whole mystical thing." "Krennic does not come "from the aristocracy of the Empire, if you like. He is truly a man that has made his own way up the chain through his own abilities. »

Watch: Tye Sheridan & Bel Powley in Trailer for Crime Thriller 'Detour'

18 November 2016 2:14 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Don't regret the things you do, just the things you don't." Magnet Releasing has unveiled an official trailer for a gritty crime thriller titled Detour, a neo-noir from filmmaker Christopher Smith (of Creep, Triangle, Black Death). The fantastic young cast in this is lead by Tye Sheridan (seen in Mud, X-Men: Apocalypse), Emory Cohen (seen in Brooklyn, The Place Beyond the Pines) and Bel Powley (seen in The Diary of a Teenage Girl). The film involves Sheridan playing a young law student named Harper, who meets a grifter and his companion who get him into all kinds of trouble. Also featuring Stephen Moyer, John Lynch, Jared Abrahamson and Gbenga Akinnagbe. The most interesting aspect is the split-screen narrative, which seems like a unique twist but you'll have to see the film to find out how exactly it plays into the story. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Christopher Smith's Detour, »

Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley, and Emory Cohen Take a ‘Detour’ in First Trailer

18 November 2016 10:31 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Not to be confused with Edgar G. Ulmer’s 1945 film noir classic, next year’s Detour comes from Christopher Smith, the U.K. director who has impressed with Triangle, Black Death, and more. Featuring the promising trio of Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, Mud), Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl),  and Emory Cohen (Brooklyn, The Place Beyond the Pines), the thriller does have some modern noir tones as evidenced in the first trailer.

We said in our review, “A gleeful throwback to a genre that unfortunately jumped the shark years ago, Detour harkens back to the ’90s noir that ultimately met its death with one too many Quentin Tarantino knock-offs. Detour is not that. It’s instead a playful shape-shifter (using a split-screen device) that offers a slight element of misdirection to its wild, winding road of unexpected encounters, moral decisions, and a portrait of white-trash Americana. »

The Light Between Oceans review

6 November 2016 11:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander headline The Light Between Oceans. Here's our review...

If you're excited about The Light Between Oceans, the new film starring Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander and directed by Derek Cianfrance, it's probably based on the people involved. If that's you and you've somehow managed to avoid seeing the trailer (which goes into more detail about the plot than we will in this review, so watch with caution), then you're best placed to appreciate this slow-burning and emotionally turbulent drama by heading straight to the cinema.

In 1918, war veteran Tom Sherbourne (Fassbender) seeks solitude after his experiences in battle, and finds it in a job as a lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, off the coast of Tasmania. This doesn't last long though, when he falls in love with local girl Isabel (Vikander). After a long and flirty correspondence through letters, the two marry and get on »

21 October 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Editor’s Note: After a two-week vacation break, we are back with an expanded selection to catch up on what we missed! Enjoy below.

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

13th (Ava DuVernay)

Humanity gave birth to inequality. The American experience is rooted in institutionalized racial inequity. Our forefathers came to this nation either by choice or by force. Once here, this distinction coalesced into a convoluted caste system driven by notions of survival and supremacy, »

Black Metal Murders Movie Lords of Chaos Gets Its Cast

19 October 2016 6:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Few stories have bewitched extreme music fans like the church burnings and murder chronicled in Lords of Chaos, the true-crime story centered around the True Norwegian Black Metal scene of the early nineties. Varg Vikernes, the 43 year old leader of one-man band Burzum who used to go by Count Grishnackh, continues to fascinate and frustrate with his (often racist) online rants, even after serving a 14-plus year sentence for the brutal murder of his friend and rival, Euronymous.

Now, courtesy of one of the cofounders of the black metal scene, the grim story is set to get the feature film treatment.

Filmmaker Jonas &#197kerlund will cowrite and direct Lords Of Chaos, a joint production between Vice Films, Insurgent Media and 20th Century Fox, who has locked distribution rights in North America and select international territories. Akerlund is best known in mainstream circles as the director behind Beyonce: Lemonade, The Prodigy: »

Movie Review – The Light Between Oceans (2016)

14 October 2016 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Light Between Oceans, 2016

Directed by Derek Cianfrance

Starring Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz.

Synopsis:

In the years following WW1, a lonely ex-soldier becomes a lighthouse keeper on an isolated island off of Western Australia, where he marries a local girl and attempts to start a family. When the two find that they cannot conceive, they illegally adopt a young baby that washes up on shore, but matters become complicated when they discover who the child’s real mother is.

A veteran of festival hits Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines, Derek Cianfrance has been an exciting new name for some years now, bubbling just under the surface of real critical acclaim but always delivering seriously exciting projects. Until now, that is. His latest, the studio-backed, Oscar-hungry weepy The Light Between Oceans, not only feels massively out of character for the edgy American, it’s also »

IndieWire Critics Survey — Are Movie Critics Killing Romance?

26 September 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

In a recent piece for The Talkhouse, Shannon Plumb — wife of “The Light Between Oceans” director Derek Cianfrance, as well as a filmmaker in her own right — wrote a candid piece about her reaction to the reviews of Cianfrance’s latest movie, and how it informed her opinion about critics in general. Some of her more pointed comments included:

“Critics can be like horseflies sucking blood from thoroughbreds. 

People are losing their ability to be romantic… And the critics, like lemmings, are jumping off the cliff with all the other unsentimental rodents.

Anthony Lane, like so many other critics, seem to be watching movies with his head, »

No, they haven't made their crazy, stupid, love official. Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are not married, People confirms. Sources tell People that reports that the notoriously private couple tied the knot earlier this year are untrue. The pair have been dating for five years.

Box Office Labors Over Labor Day, While ‘Don’t Breathe’ Takes A Victory Lap

4 September 2016 3:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Box office is laboring this weekend; that’s par for the Labor Day holiday course. This year, the weakness stems almost entirely from the failure of new studio releases, with “The Light Between Oceans” (Disney) and “Morgan” (20thCentury Fox) flailing.

Holdovers, however, are doing better. Also helping the cause are two limited-release films, CBS Films’ “Hell or High Water” and Pantelion’s “No Manches Frida,” both handled by Lionsgate for their partners.

Quickie Reviews: The Light Between Oceans and The Jungle Book

2 September 2016 5:32 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

Apologies that there's no big review this weekend but I do hope you'll check out the Fassbender & Vikander flick. Here are two quick takes on movie options this weekend.

In Theaters

The Light Between Oceans (Derek Cianfrance)

Story: A war veteran (Michael Fassbender) takes a position as a lighthouse keeper where he falls in love with a local girl (Alicia Vikander). Their lives change irrevocably when they discover an orphaned baby in a boat.

Review: A pop quiz. Which is more ravishing?

Real life romantic chemistry that translates intact to movie screens. Romantic dramas that don't stop at sexy but get across how comforting and life-changing love and companionship can be. Picturesque rocky islands and lighthouses softened at their edges by grassy tenderness and the windswept beauty of two definitely cinematic brunettes.

Trick question -- they're all super ravishing! I've heard the complaints that The Light Between Oceans »

The Light Between Oceans Review

2 September 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few actors in recent memory have exhibited the versatility of Alicia Vikander, who just last year played a mechanic fashionista double-agent (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), the loyal wife of a transsexual trailblazer (The Danish Girl), and a spellbinding robot with a see-through belly (Ex Machina). The Swedish actor again unveils a new side of her in The Light Between Oceans, in which she plays a woman named Isabel Graysmark who wants so desperately to be a mother that she goes far beyond the reaches of morality.

Vikander, a classically trained ballerina, throws her entire body into the role, drawn like a magnet to her onscreen counterpart, Michael Fassbender, who plays her lover, Tom Sherbourne. A rattled veteran of World War I, Tom elects to lead a life of solitude, taking a position as a lighthouse keeper off the coast of Western Australia, but vivacious mainlander Isabel manages to capture his »

Film Review: Strong Cast Turns on ‘The Light Between Oceans’

2 September 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In the early 1970s, “Love Story” was all the rage, with its catchphrase “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Just as sudsy, and with its own catchphrase, is “The Light Between the Oceans.” The film, set in the early 20th Century, salvages a by-the-numbers tale with fine performances.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

This is a love story, between a lighthouse keeper and his conveniently available young bride. It can be be categorized as a dignified soap opera, involving a baby and a surprising reveal. The high level actors Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz deeply create characters that work, but the story has some issues in keeping up with them. The time setting of 1918 through the 1920s is perfectly handled, as a world resentfully deals with the loss of life and innocence after World War I. Director/screenplay adapter Derek Cianfrance (“The Place Beyond the Pines”) has been »

Light Between Oceans Review: Painful, Slow and Really Boring

2 September 2016 11:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Light Between Oceans is a painfully slow melodrama. English period costume drama isn't everyone's cup of tea, but this one is a head scratcher. All of the pieces for a good film were seemingly there, a talented cast, acclaimed director, well regarded source novel. But instead of award worthy recognition we get tedium and pretentiousness. This is a great example of how having great ingredients doesn't guarantee a decent product.

Based on the novel by M.L. Stedman, The Light Between Oceans takes place on the Australian coast directly after World War One. Michael Fassbender stars as Tom Sherbourne, a veteran haunted by his time in the war. He takes a job in isolation as a lighthouse keeper on a remote island. His employer's daughter, Isabel (Alicia Vikander), takes a fancy to him and they begin corresponding. After a whirlwind romance leads to marriage, Isabel joins Tom on his island for an idyllic life. »

The Light Between Oceans – Review

1 September 2016 8:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The lushly beautiful The Light Between Oceans is a three-hankie historic drama set on the coast of Western Australia. With heart-tugging performances by an attractive trio of Oscar nominees (with two winners), Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander and Rachel Weisz, the film is an adaptation of M. I. Stedman’s 2012 bestseller of the same name. The tale set in a remote corner of the world, in the years after the devastation of World War I, which nearly wiped out a generation of young men in Europe and left those who survived scarred by this most brutal of wars.

Derek Cianfrance, whose previous films include Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond The Pines, both wrote the script and directs, and it is hard to imagine a more perfect director for this moody historic tale of moral choice. The title refers to the story’s setting, a remote lighthouse in Western Australia, at »

Derek Cianfrance to Direct ‘Empire of the Summer Moon’ Next Year

1 September 2016 12:36 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With his latest drama, The Light Between Oceans, opening this Friday (our review), Derek Cianfrance is already eyeing his next project. According to Variety, he’s prepping an adaptation of Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History, S.C. Gwynne‘s book about the last great Comanche chief, Quanah Parker. The project will be made for Warner Bros., with Cianfrance co-writing with Darius Marder, collaborators on The Place Beyond the Pines.

Cianfrance calls Parker, who had his mother abducted and spent years trying to find her, “really one of the great American heroes. [He] grew into his manhood, raged against the theft of his mother and spent his whole life trying to find her again.” He also tells Indiewire, “Hopefully I’ll be in production on in the spring, but then again, that’ll be like »
