A Boeing 767 flying out of Berlin lands at JFK and goes dark. Its fuselage is cold. Every window blind is drawn except one and the passengers are silent. Someone calls in Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) from the Cdc (Centre for Disease Control) to investigate. Together with Jim Kent (Sean Astin) and Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro) he begins ruling out viral possibilities before this new contagion reaches Manhattan.
Meanwhile Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley), an old Armenian pawnbroker, watches from his Harlem bolthole as media interest turns to increasing concern. Something without conscience is intent on eradicating the population, which will require more than the efforts of one old man and a team of experts to quash. Elsewhere ailing billionaire Eldrich Palmer (Jonathan Hyde) awaits the arrival of a visitor. For both men know there will be no second chances.

There must be something in the water down in Mexico, something that breeds incredible cinematic visionaries quite unmatched by their professional peers. Alongside filmmakers like Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, Guillermo del Toro is one such talent – and it appears he has a lot on his plate.
Following the recent announcement that a sequel to Pacific Rim was hoped to be released in 2017, del Toro has also let slip that he intends to shoot a very small black and white picture before he sinks his teeth into another helping of kaiju/robot mayhem.
Considering his notoriety for being a director involved in certain projects that fail to get off the ground or result in his departure for varying reasons, it’d seem unsurprising that del Toro would remain relatively tight-lipped regarding his career choices – but with this double whammy of film news, I for one couldn’t be happier. »

Guillermo del Toro is a pretty busy man right now, with The Strain set to air on Sunday and Pacific Rim 2 in the works, but that won’t stop the director from taking a little time out of his day for passion projects.
In an interview with Collider, del Toro revealed that he’s planning a “small movie,” one that’s in black and white and “really, really bizarre,” before he gets to pre-production on the sure-to-be-even-bigger sequel to last summer’s blockbuster.
Really, really bizarre is par for the course for Del Toro, who’s famous for the »

Guillermo del Toro is taking a cue from fellow blockbuster director Joss Whedon, as the Mexican filmmaker is planning to make a small, black-and-white movie before starting production on “Pacific Rim 2,” the director has told Collider. Del Toro already has his cast in mind, including John Hurt and a young actress who is not well-known… yet. And of course, this being a Guillermo del Toro movie, “there's one great creature in it,” according to the director.

The CW made an interesting choice airing the two part miniseries Labyrinth. Interesting meaning confusing. While it’s in the same vein as the network’s hit historical drama, Reign, it lacks the production and entertainment value to put it on the same level. The characters, although possessing a certain amount of charm, fail to create a lasting impression with viewers. The story carries some interesting caveats with its off the beaten path focus on the Cathar massacres during the Crusades, a history that is often marginalized – if remembered at all, but comes up short in terms of execution.
Part one of Labyrinth moves seamlessly back and forth between present day and France in 1209, weaving together the stories of two young women – Alice (Vanessa Kirby) and Alais (Jessica Brown-Findlay). When Alice travels from London to France in the wake of her aunt’s death, she uncovers a relic at an »

Break out your Marauder’s Map, Invisibility Cloak and Time-Turner: It’s time for another Hogwarts Alumni Newsletter.
It’s been nearly a year since the last installment of Hogwarts’ Alumni Newsletter, a post designed to keep you all informed of the latest happenings from Hogwarts’ most famous young wizard alums (err, or the actors who portray them). While the main trio may not be reuniting to film a video for Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as was a recent rumor, many of the now-grown-up cast have announced various upcoming projects over the past few weeks.

[This is a review of the miniseries event, Labyrinth. There will be Spoilers.]
The CW’s decision to purchase the rights to air the European import Labyrinth in the United States proves that the network is quickly becoming the playground for all genre-based programming. With shows like Arrow and their new breakout hit Reign, this fictitious historical narrative produced by Ridley Scott (Prometheus) and based off of Kate Mosse’s 2005 bestseller should fit right in.
Labyrinth, at first glance anyway, is everything a well-produced sprawling miniseries should be. The cast is top notch, featuring acting legend John Hurt (Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor), as well as popular newcomers Sebastian Stan (Click to continue reading ‘Labyrinth’ Miniseries Builds an Intriguing Mystery Surrounding the Holy Grail

Female protagonist? Check times two. A time period when everyone rides horses? Sure. Cool jewelry? Got it. When the CW acquired "Labyrinth," a four-hour miniseries executive produced by Scott Free (Ridley and Tony Scott's company), CW president Mark Pedowitz called this a "fun companion piece" to the series "Reign." I'm not sure I would call "Labyrinth" fun, but I guess if you think 1209 and 1542 are more or less the same time period, well, then why not snap up this project? But to say "Labyrinth" and "Reign" are of the same species is sort of like saying giraffes and lions should be caged together since they're all zoo animals and, as such, should get along swimmingly. Fans of the book by Kate Mosse will probably be put off (or have already seen this, as it aired in the U.K. and in Canada years ago), and fans of "Reign" expecting an »

Vulture breaks down the secrets of how Catfish: The TV Show is put together, making clear that the catfishes usually get cast first, how much of the show is planned in advance as well as how much Nev and Max know in advance. It doesn’t predict when Max and Nev finally get together, however,
James Wolk talked with GQ and addressed where he thought Bob‘s mind was during last week’s marriage proposal, “I think he really has a love for Joan and for her family. I think he really does care for her. And as you see throughout the show, he’s always thinking about trying to advance himself. So I believe that he feels that having a wife and having a family, and being a picture perfect American man in the 1960s, will help him in his career. And he also thinks it would be »

No Monty Python jokes here. The CW’s new miniseries Labyrinth, airing Thursday, May 22, and Friday, May 23, at 8pm Et/Pt, is a seriously engrossing adventure. The CW kicks off summer with Labyrinth, a two-night, four-hour miniseries based on The New York Times best-selling author Kate Mosse’s novel of the same name. Jumping back and forth between medieval and modern-day France, the story revolves around two young women divided by centuries but united in their hunt for the Holy Grail. In 13th-century France on the eve of war, 17-year-old Alaïs (Jessica Brown Findlay, Downton Abbey) must protect a book written … Continue reading →

Cannes — French pay TV company Canal Plus has greenlit crime drama “Spotless,” which was co-created by Ed McCardie (U.K. version of “Shameless”), and Corinne Marrinan (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”).
The 10-episode series is to be produced by Tandem Communications, which is owned by Canal Plus’ production arm Studiocanal. Principal photography is set to begin this summer on location in London. The first two episodes will be directed by Pascal Chaumeil (“Heartbreaker,” “A Long Way Down”). Principal casting will be announced soon.
The show, which will be peppered with black humor, centers on a troubled man, Jean, whose tidy life is turned upside down when his outlaw brother, Martin, crash lands into his world, and gets both of them involved in the deadly dynamics of organized crime.
Played out against a backdrop of Jean’s niche crime-scene cleaning business, with gangsters, corruption, drugs and death a constant hazard, Jean, Martin »

What’s difficult about making this list is finding a balance between a successful Kubrickian film that either predates or pays homage to Kubrick and, for lack of a better term, is a ripoff. Now that we’ve hit the apex, it’s clear that these are, regardless of influence, quality films. What sets them apart is their ability to evoke Kubrick’s greatness (or inspire it), while delivering a stand-alone masterpiece. If Kubrick took the helm for any of these films, the result wouldn’t delineate too much. Still. Kubrick is a genius because he always kept us guessing.

10. Fitzcarraldo (1982)
Directed by Werner Herzog
What makes it Kubrickian? It’s a film about extreme obsession and the unreasonable lengths a man will go to when consumed by it. Fitzcarraldo is the story of Brian Sweeny “Fitzcarraldo” Fitzgerald (Klaus Kinski) and his entry into the rubber industry. »

Peter Debruge: Ok, gentlemen, time to guess who will win the Oscar for best picture. I say “guess” because the word “predict” seems entirely too confident when it comes to the Academy Awards. Despite all the ink and all the effort that people put into anticipating who will win on Sunday night, all the logic and algorithms that factor into their prognostications, I still think it’s a crapshoot — and I say this as someone who once managed to win Variety’s office Oscar pool. That’s no humblebrag, mind you. Quite the opposite. My point is that only once in the last 20 years of the Academy Awards have my preferences aligned with the Academy’s — a group that prefers “Argo” to “Amour” and “The Lord of the Rings” to “Lost in Translation,” while overlooking what I consider to be the best film of 2013: “Inside Llewyn Davis.”
