‘The Nile Hilton Incident’: Film Review | Sundance 2017

3 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Egypt’s 2011 revolution provides the backdrop for Tarik Saleh’s unforgiving political thriller, which incrementally shifts focus from the grimy backstreets of Cairo to the highest levels of parliament in the course of a scandalous murder investigation. Despite a rather generic title, The Nile Hilton Incident represents the type of penetrating filmmaking that only a writer-director intimately familiar with Egyptian culture but possessing an outsider’s perspective could convincingly accomplish.

As the film’s face of official corruption, lead actor Fares Fares (The Commune, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will be recognizable to international audiences, while the Cairo setting (actually Casablanca) offers »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ to Twist Past Vin Diesel’s ‘xXx’ at Weekend Box Office

20 January 2017 1:11 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

M. Night Shyamalan’s horror-thriller “Split” has separated from its rivals, and is on its way toward a surprisingly strong $28 million in its opening weekend at 3,038 North American locations, early estimates showed Friday.

Vin Diesel’s launch of “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” is heading for a second-place finish with about $20 million at 3,651 sites while the historical drama “Hidden Figures” continues its solid performance in third with $16 million. Michael Keaton’s biopic “The Founder” is showing little traction with a modest $3 million to $4 million weekend at 1,115 locations.

Split” is outperforming recent expectations, which had been at around $20 million at 3,037 sites earlier this week. Early grosses point to a $12 million $14 million opening day with Thursday night previews of $2 million, while “Xander Cage” heads for a $7 million to $9 million opening day. Some early estimates project that “Split” will hit as much as $35 million during the weekend.

‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ Review

20 January 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Vin Diesel, Ruby Rose, Donnie Yen, Rory McCann, Toni Collette, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Deepika Padukone, Danny Wu, Ariadna Gutierrez | Written by F. Scott Frazier | Directed by D.J. Caruso

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage starts off strong (and ridiculous) and keeps on going at a hundred miles per hour. You know you’re in for a crazy ride when the movie starts with title cards introducing each character: name, characteristics, favourite song, etc., you know, the usual! Even more ridiculous is that the first person we see – besides Samuel L. Jackson’s super-spy Gibbons – is footballing superstar Neymar, who is being recruited into the xXx program, in a Chinese restaurant, at 7am in the morning… Sounds absurd? Yes. Fun? Definitely!

And that’s the key to xXx 3, it is absurd And fun. The two go hand in hand, that’s how the franchise started and that’s how I hope it goes on… »

'XXX: Return of Xander Cage' Review: Vin Diesel Gives Us Sequel No One Wanted

20 January 2017 9:27 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Who wanted Xander Cage back? Is it you? It sure as hell isn't me. But he's here anyway, extreme-sports and lunkhead-espionage skills in tow. This cinematic equivalent of drool is the third in the series that started in 2002 by introducing Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports badass recruited by an Nsa boss (Samuel L. Jackson) to go undercover and flex his muscles. Ok, the assignment had something to do with Russians. But who remembers? Even Diesel wisely sat out the horrendous 2005 sequel (with Ice Cube) and found a »

Only 17% of Rogue One Dialogue Is Spoken by a Female Character

20 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A lot has been made bout the fact that both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One have female lead characters, but a new study shows that might not be all it's cracked up to be. While both of these latest entries in the Star Wars franchise do have strong women as protagonist, both movies are still quite male heavy. Even lopsided. A new study shows that only 17% of the dialogue in Rogue One is spoken by one of the movies few female characters.

Jyn Erso led Rogue One to becoming the highest grossing movie in the U.S., no small feat that Felicity Jones helped push the movie to the top the box office as the face of this first Star Wars anthology movie. The prequel was also praised for its diverse cast. But diving deeper into the story elements, and what actually happens on screen shows »

Box Office: M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split’ Abducts $2 Million in Thursday Night Launch

20 January 2017 8:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

M. Night Shyamalan’s horror-thriller “Split” has taken an impressive $2 million at 2,295 locations in Thursday night preview showings in North America.

Split” easily outdistanced Thursday night previews of Vin Diesel’s “xXx: Return of Xander Cage,” which took in a decent $1.2 million at 2,536 sites.

Universal is expanding “Split,” starring James McAvoy as a man with 24 personalities, to 3,037 sites on Friday. The Thursday night figure for “Split” doubled the $1 million in previews from Shyamalan’s found-footage horror movie “The Visit,” which scored an opening weekend of $25.4 million two years ago.

Shyamalan produces and directs from his own script in a story of McAvoy’s character capturing three young women. It’s the 12th movie that Shyamalan has directed with 1999’s “The Sixth Sense” remaining the most successful with more than $650 million in worldwide grosses.

Film Review: ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage’

19 January 2017 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“xXx: Return of Xander Cage” begins in outer space, and the camera follows a rogue satellite as it leaves orbit and plummets toward the exact spot on earth where Samuel L. Jackson and Brazilian soccer star Neymar are discussing Stacy Peralta skate films in a Chinese restaurant. A few minutes later, the camera follows Vin Diesel as he dirt-skis down a snowless hillside in order to connect Dominican fishermen with a pirated feed of the World Cup. Half an hour after that, it picks up with Diesel as he surfs ten-foot waves on a motorcycle off the shore of a Philippine rave-island. None of this makes any more sense onscreen than it does on paper, and therein lies this film’s undeniable numbskull appeal.

It’s unlikely that anyone aside from prodigal star and producer Diesel was screaming for a return of the “xXx” franchise, which already felt Clinton-era-dated when »

Ben Mendelsohn cast in new Netflix movie The Land of Steady Habits

19 January 2017 4:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming off a stellar period in his career which included a blistering turn in the Netflix original series Bloodline, and more famously portraying the main villain in Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Ben Mendelsohn has now been cast as the lead in a new Netflix movie.

The Australian actor has cemented his status as one of the finest character actors working today, and with more high profile roles like that of Orson Krennic in mega hit Rogue One, the interest in his smaller projects is bound to rise.

The film which is titled The Land of Steady Habits, focuses on a man (Mendelsohn) in his mid fifties as he embarks on a heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present.

Anthony Bregman will be helming the project for Netflix who is fully-financing the project and distributing worldwide. »

Shyamalan's 'Split' and Diesel's 'xXx 3' Look to Deliver $20+ Million Openings

19 January 2017 2:44 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

While last weekend's new releases failed to energize the box office, two of this week's new titles will top the weekend chart. M. Night Shyamalan's latest thriller, Split, and the return of Vin Diesel in the title role of xXx: Return of Xander Cage are both looking to score $20+ million openings while Hidden Figures and La La Land look to continue to capture audience attention amid their already-strong domestic runs. Additionally, this weekend features the release of The Founder into just over one thousand theaters and High Top releasing brings The Resurrection of Gavin Stone into 887 theaters as it hopes to attract the attention of the faith-based audience. At the top of the weekend box office expect to find M. Night Shyamalan's Split. Shyamalan's career has featured plenty of ups and downs, but following the performance of The Visit in 2015 and the solid early reviews for Split, we »

xXx: Return Of Xander Cage Review

19 January 2017 2:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Watching xXx: Return Of Xander Cage mimics the effect of mainlining a Red Bull/Jolt Cola concoction while you skydive off the Empire State Building with only a handkerchief for a parachute. It’s like Shaun White and Travis Pastrana had conjoining daredevil wet dreams that formed some Exxxtreme tsunami of fantastical X-Games stuntmanship. I imagine someone asking “what about a story?” only to have Vin Diesel grab them by the lapel, hoist them up and say, “how about I skateboard, travel and bed sexy ladies for the first twenty minutes, There’S Your Story!” – they complied, of course. That’s the opening to Xander Cage’s adrenaline-packed franchise return, and radness only increases from there broskis and braskis!

Agent Xander Cage’s return is a somber one, since it begins with the death of Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson). Government suit Jane Marke (Toni Collette) calls Xander out of retirement to avenge Gibbons’ death, »

First Trailer for UK Thriller 'City of Tiny Lights' Featuring Riz Ahmed

19 January 2017 12:37 PM, PST | | See recent news »

"People call me a snoop. They call me a lot worse. Broken marriages, missing kids. Nothing major, just the sacred and profane." An official UK trailer has arrived online for an indie film titled City of Tiny Lights, a "Scorsese-like" crime thriller about a private eye in London. Riz Ahmed (seen in Rogue One and Jason Bourne) plays Tommy Akhtar, who takes on a seemingly straight-forward missing person's case only to get pulled deeper into the underbelly of modern London. The full cast includes Billie Piper, Cush Jumbo, Hannah Rae, Roshan Seth, and James Floyd. This is from the same director of Dredd, a movie which I was very fond of. The film played at the Toronto and London Film Festivals last year, and it looks pretty damn good. Plus, Riz Ahmed is awesome and it's great to see him in a strong lead role. Take a look below.

‘City of Tiny Lights’ Trailer: Riz Ahmed Searches For Missing Girl in Pete Travis’ Modern Noir

19 January 2017 12:19 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Riz Ahmed first made waves in Michael Winterbottom’s “The Road to Guantanamo,” but his Hollywood claim to fame was in last year’s HBO crime drama “The Night Of,” which earned him a Golden Globe and SAG nomination.

Now, after starring in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Ahmed is returning to theaters in “City of Tiny Lights,” directed by “Dredd” helmer Pete Travis. Set in West London, the story is co-written by Patrick Neate and is based on his novel of the same name. Described as a “unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems,” it follows the actor as Tommy Akhtar, a London detective who goes searching for a missing girl after a high-class prostitute seeks his help.

The modern noir also co-stars “Penny Dreadful” actress Billie Piper as Shelley, Tommy’s long-lost love, as well as Cush Jumbo and Roshan Seth. »

Epic Star Wars Saga Trailer Will Get You Hyped for Episode 8

19 January 2017 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a 10-year drought of Star Wars movies, fans were finally transported back to that same galaxy far, far away last year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was followed by the spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just last month. Both movies were huge hits at the box office, ushering in a new era of Star Wars fandom that will keep growing and growing. There will be plenty of fans who keep revisiting the original trilogy and the prequels, but instead of a marathon movie session, one enterprising YouTube user has broken down the story told through all eight movies, in one two-minute video.

YouTube user Dylan Trost took it upon himself to cut together footage from the first seven movies, plus a few bits from Rogue One, to succinctly break down these epic movies in two minutes and 17 seconds. While the footage isn't necessarily in chronological order, »
