Bad Batch Trailer #2 Gets Weird with Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey

14 April 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Neon has released the second trailer for their upcoming indie thriller entitled The Bad Batch, the second film from heralded indie filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night). After a critically-acclaimed debut at the Venice Film Festival last fall, where the writer-director won a Special Jury Prize, and subsequent screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest, Neon will release The Bad Batch in theaters this summer. While it may not be a big-budget affair, this low-budget indie seems to have what it takes to become an instant cult classic and a sleeper hit, with a diverse all-star cast.

Neon has debuted this new trailer, which offers new scenes and a glimpse at this crazed ensemble, including a peek at Jim Carrey's Hermit, who is practically unrecognizable. He's seen trudging through the wasteland, wearing sunglasses made out of cardboard. It seems that he's dragging something through the desert, »

Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘The Bad Batch’ Receives Second Trailer

13 April 2017 11:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night was one of our favorite debuts of its respective year, an impeccably photographed vampire tale that brought new blood to the subgenre.  fter a fall festival premiere at Venice, followed by a stop at Tiff, Ana Lily Amirpour‘s follow-up The Bad Batch is now finally arriving this summer. With a cast featuring Jason MomoaJim CarreyKeanu ReevesSuki WaterhouseDiego Luna, and Giovanni Ribisi, distribution shifted to the newly minted Neon and now they’ve launched the wild second trailer for the dystopic cannibal western.

As we said in our review, “Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken. The Bad Batch — an ambitious, expansive dystopian sci-fi western which features partying, drugs, »

What is James Franco Reading?

13 April 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A extensive look at all those movies James Franco directed.

James Franco has done a lot of things, we’ve heard. Following a successful turn on Judd Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks and a well-received starring spot on a TNT biopic on James Dean, he turned immediately to a litany of pursuits: from playwriting and English degrees to painting and directing no less than ten feature-lengths. The latter project interested me. Were they any good? In Franco’s Rolling Stone profile last year, Jonah Weiner ran around a thesaurus of words like “dizzying,” “indefatigable“ and, wait for it, “multihyphenate” to describe his subject but none of those words mean very much. Paul Klee painted over a thousand paintings in the penultimate last year of his life. So could I. So what?

“What did we do to deserve James Franco?,” asked Rex Reed in a slightly different era. Back then, even the The Guardian agreed with Jared Kushner »

‘Spring Breakers’ Should Not Be a Digital Series (or a Franchise)

31 March 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s easy to understand the Hollywood logic behind developing sequels: If it does well, keep it going — and going, and going, with spin-offs flying in every direction long after the concept has been spread thin. But some projects are so antithetical to this approach that the very idea of the franchise approach registers as a vulgarity. So it goes with the ongoing attempts to turn Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers” into something more than a single movie.

First, it was going to be a sequel; now, it’s a “digital series,” again without the participation of the creative team behind the original. This needs to stop.

Three years ago, it was reported that Muse Prods., the company run by Chris and Roberta Hanley, was shopping around a followup to the 2012 project without the involvement of Korine or anyone else associated with the original. That included “Spring Breakers” star James Franco, »

All This Panic: the most relatable film about teenage girlhood ever?

26 March 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jenny Gage’s intimate documentary of seven Brooklyn teenagers has been praised for its honest account of growing up. We asked four British school friends to assess it

‘I don’t want to age. I think that’s the scariest thing in the entire world,” says Ginger Leigh Ryan, one of the girls featured in Jenny Gage’s documentary All This Panic. Set in the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Clinton Hill and directed by the former Us fashion photographer, with cinematography by her husband Tom Betterton, the film follows seven teenagers – best friends Lena and Ginger, their school friends Sage, Olivia and Ivy, Ginger’s younger sister Dusty, and Dusty’s best friend Delia – over a three-year period.

i-d magazine said the film “might be the most honest documentary about teenage girlhood ever”. That’s a bold claim, but there’s something to be said for the way Gage’s film »

Selena Gomez on Being Bullied at the Disney Channel aka ‘The Biggest High School in the World’

22 March 2017 12:40 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Selena Gomez has revealed she was bullied while working for the Disney Channel in her breakout role on Wizards of Waverly Place.

“I think he understood that I knew what it meant to be bullied,” Gomez told NY Times, explaining how she convinced Thirteen Reasons Why author Jay Asher to let her and her mom option the rights to his book. “I went to the biggest high school in the world, which is the Disney Channel. And my mom had a lot of history dealing with [bullying]. I heard her stories growing up. She’s very open about it.”

Spring Break to Continue Forever On Mysterious Streaming Platform

22 March 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What does a French billionaire want with James Franco?

The sun sets over these last and barren weeks of madness we call March. What remains of snowfall turns into slosh as students blink slowly into sobriety. “Spring Break, Spring Break, Spring Break forever,” an icy voice chants. But good news: that creepy voice just might have its demands met. A mysterious streaming platform called Blackpills has, per Deadline, now committed to distributing a scripted micro-episodic series based on Harmony Korine’s 2012 hyper-stylized meditation of life, love and spring break that starred James Franco, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.

The production company behind Spring Breakers, Fernando Sulichin and Chris Hanley’s Muse Productions (Buffalo ’66, Virgin Suicides), are more than thrilled. Hanley excitedly tells Deadline that the proposed micro-episode format is “the future of digital media.” Korine, on the other hand, has asserted his lack of interest in the project: busy, as he is, in »

‘Spring Breakers’ Digital Series In The Works

22 March 2017 6:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While “Spring Breakers” might not be Harmony Korine‘s most button-pushing movie, it brought a watered-down version of his filmmaking brand to his widest audience yet, thanks to the canny casting of James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson. The concept itself was pretty simple — beautiful young women get into trouble on spring break — and producers have been eager to try and milk it for more for years.

‘Spring Breakers’ Will Be Turned into Digital Series

21 March 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Spring break forever, indeed. After James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine took us on a vacation like no other in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers a few years back, the adventure will continue. Plans have been announced for a new project based on the 2013 hit, but it will be taking a different format than a big-screen follow-up.

Deadline reports that the original film’s producers Chris Hanley and Fernando Sulichin will be creating a digital series based off the film, but Korine — who is kicking off production this summer on The Beach Bum starring Matthew McConaughey — will not be involved. The series, one of four scripted shows coming to the soon-to-be-launched Blackpills, is currently in its casting stages, which we imagine will feature an all-new ensemble.
