Carol Danvers Dashes Into Action in Latest Peek at Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel is currently filming in and outside of Los Angeles, which would lead one to believe that there should be a lot more photos from the set. However, that isn't the case, which makes it special when new behind-the-scenes pictures find their way online. Some new image from the set have finally leaked, showing Brie Larson in full costume along with her stunt double. Larson was last seen at the world premiere for Marvel's Infinity War earlier this week where she gushed about how much she liked that epic movie.

Brie Larson was spotted on the set of Captain Marvel in Los Angeles running around with her stunt double, both of them wearing the green Kree armor suit that we've seen previously. Other shots show off the early 1990s setting with a Pacific Bell phone booth (remember those?) as well as some posters plastered to the wall that promote upcoming record releases.

Chrysta Bell: ‘David Lynch is my mentor in art, music and life’

The singer and actor, on the eve of a UK tour, discusses the Twin Peaks reboot and her long history of collaborations with the director

On 10 June 1991, in the chilling finale of the second season of Twin Peaks, Laura Palmer – or someone who looked like her – tells special agent Dale Cooper: “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” As promised, a quarter of a century later, the show written by David Lynch and Mark Frost returned with a boundary-pushing third season. It launched a thousand thinkpieces and fan theories; controversially, it was ranked second in Sight & Sound’s best films of 2017 list. At the heart of the show was new character Tammy Preston, an impossibly glamorous FBI agent played by relative unknown Chrysta Bell.

The musician and sometime actor has often been referred to as David Lynch’s muse: one of her songs appeared in his 2006 film Inland Empire,

Exclusive: Director Clio Barnard on harrowing British drama Dark River

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Stefan Pape

To celebrate the release of the moving, profound British indie Dark River, we had the pleasure of sitting down with the woman at the helm, writer/director Clio Barnard.

We discussed what it is about the farm setting which is so essential in this instance, and how she went about finding a beauty within what is a dark, harrowing narrative. She also tells us how thrilled she was to have Ruth Wilson on board, and what it was like not working with children following her preceding endeavours where they took a starring role.Finally we asked about her collaboration with Pj Harvey, who provides a wonderful soundtrack to this indelible production.

Watch the full interview below…

Synopsis

Following the death of her father, a woman returns to her home village to claim the family farm she believes is rightfully hers. Dark River is released on February 23rd.

Movie Review – Dark River (2018)

Dark River, 2018.

Written and directed by Clio Barnard.

Starring Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley and Sean Bean.

Synopsis:

After the death of their father, two siblings engage in a power struggle for control of the dilapidated farm their parent left behind.

The first two features from Yorkshire-born filmmaker Clio Barnard marked her out as a real talent to watch in British cinema. Experimental documentary The Arbor and kitchen sink drama The Selfish Giant both made an impact, with the latter especially boasting an impactful emotional punch. Her latest movie, Dark River stays true to her rural English roots, with the tale of two siblings struggling over the ownership of a farm previously run by their father. That might sound like an Emmerdale B-plot, but it’s the starting point for a potent work of purely emotional filmmaking.

Ruth Wilson plays Alice, who has returned to the secluded farm where she once

Pj Harvey goes back to the moors on her new song, "An Acre Of Land"

Today is shaping up to be a good day for aging ‘90s alt-rock fans: Not only did L7 release a gnarly, grunge-influenced new song, “I Came Back To Bitch”—only the band’s second song since 1999—but we’ve got a new tune from Pj Harvey as well. Called “An Acre Of Land,” the song sees Polly Jean teaming up with film…

Case Study: How a 1994 Nick Cave Song Became a Favorite of Music Supervisors

Case Study: How a 1994 Nick Cave Song Became a Favorite of Music Supervisors
“You’ll see him in your head/On the TV screen/Hey buddy, I’m warning you/To turn it off”

That’s the refrain to “Red Right Hand,” a clanging, gloom-and-doom, six-minute-plus blues noir penned by Nick Cave and his fellow Bad Seeds, guitarist Mick Harvey and drummer Thomas Wydler, for the band’s 1994 album, “Let Love In,” originally released on Mute Records. Some 24 years later, the darkly foreboding track, reputedly a nod to the vengeful hand of God in John Milton’s epic “Paradise Lost,” has gained an unlikely second act as a sync magnet for a wide range of high-visibility movies, TV shows and ad campaigns.

Mute Song’s David McGinnis has been working with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds for the past 18 years and helped engineer a variety of sync usages over that time. Mute Songs, the music publishing arm for Daniel Miller’s groundbreaking label, has published

Toronto Film Review: ‘Dark River’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Dark River’
“You can’t go home again,” that age-old chorus of mature disillusionment, at first appears to be the driving current of “Dark River,” a severe, stoic but internally screaming third feature from gifted British writer-director Clio Barnard. Yet as already brittle family relations shatter and scatter across the humble patch of Yorkshire farmland that centers this roiling rural tragedy, the message turns harder still: Perhaps you were never really home at all.

Melding the quiet poetic realism of Barnard’s exquisite “The Selfish Giant” with a higher-key strain of relocated Greek tragedy, “Dark River” isn’t quite as bracing or as unexpected as the director’s previous work — not least because, through no fault of the film’s own, it’s only the latest in a recent boom of comparably styled British farm dramas. Still, there’s scarcely room here for improvement at the level of craft or performance; in particular, it

Tiff 2017 Women Directors: Meet Clio Barnard — “Dark River”

Dark River

Clio Barnard is a director whose films have won her The Douglas Hickox Award at the British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs), Best Screenplay at the Evening Standard British Film Awards, and Best British Newcomer at the BFI London Film Festival.

Her previous works include “The Selfish Giant” and “The Arbor.” Dark River” is Barnard’s third feature film.

Dark River” will premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 10.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

Cb: Framed by Pj Harvey singing a folk song setting of a traditional children’s rhyme “My Father Gave me an Acre of Land,” I see “Dark River” as a folk tale about the exploitation of a woman’s body and the land.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

Cb: I was inspired by “Trespass,” a novel written by Rose Tremain. I was interested in the relationship between the adult siblings whose dispute over the neglected family farm forces both of them to confront a past they have developed different strategies to suppress.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

Cb: In part it is a film about how damaging it is to be silenced and to bury the past, about how as children we can feel we failed to protect our siblings, and can carry misplaced guilt with us for the rest of our lives.

It is also about acceptance, putting the past to rest, about the difficulty of that process. By the end the siblings are able to reconnect. I hope people will think about the complexity of sibling relationships when there is trauma within the family.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

Cb: The subject matter.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? (Is it a studio film, a crowdsourced film, somewhere in between?) Share some insights into how you got the film made.

Cb: The film was financed by BFI, Film4, Screen Yorkshire, and the Wellcome Trust.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at the Toronto International Film Festival?

Cb: I’m absolutely thrilled! I’m especially thrilled to be in the prestigious Platform section, which is a very special part of the festival.

W&H: What’s the best you’ve received?

Cb: Best advice: Cast well, crew well.

W&H: What advice do you have for other female directors?

Cb: People will ask you about your gender in relation to being a director — just ignore them and get on with the job because gender doesn’t make any difference to how you do the job but the world needs your insights. We need your point of view!

W&H: Name your favorite woman-directed film and why.

Cb: I love “Winter’s Bone” by Debra Granik. I felt I’d never seen a film about that community before, that specific place, about contemporary rural poverty in the USA. The casting and performances are exceptional.

I love the restricted palette, and the way Granik uses professional and nonprofessional actors — it has an incredible atmosphere and is absolutely gripping.

W&H: There have been significant conversations over the last couple of years about increasing the amount of opportunities for women directors yet the numbers have not increased. Are you optimistic about the possibilities for change? Share any thoughts you might have on this topic.

It was hard to choose just one film to answer the question above, so there is a rich and varied number of female directors, but not enough of them yet. I’m hopeful numbers will grow.

There was a time when it felt like there weren’t many role models but I do think it is changing and it’s important to keep raising awareness and fighting to make that change happen.

‘Girls,’ ‘Master of None,’ ‘Stranger Things’ Music Supervisors Set Moods Through Sound

‘Girls,’ ‘Master of None,’ ‘Stranger Things’ Music Supervisors Set Moods Through Sound
For the first time in its history, the Emmys are honoring the art of music supervisors, those audio excavators who dig up the perfect song to set a mood, evoke a setting, or express a character’s feelings more succinctly than any line of dialogue ever could. “Music can be used as costumes are — or as art direction, as casting,” says Thomas Golubic, a nominee for “Better Call Saul.” “It is absolutely vital in helping best tell a story.” Golubic joins a freshman class in the category that includes “Big Little Lies,” “Girls,” “Master of None” and “Stranger Things.”

Better Call Saul

In the third season of AMC’s “Breaking Bad” spinoff, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) moves several steps closer to becoming Saul Goodman, the ethically flexible strip-mall lawyer whose roster of unsavory clients will eventually include Walter White. Though he worked with co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould on “Breaking Bad,” Golubic

'Happy Valley' director Neasa Hardiman receives Irish Film Board Funding

'Happy Valley' director Neasa Hardiman receives Irish Film Board Funding
Other recipients include Lenny Abrahamson, Tomm Moore and Jim Sheridan.

Movie Review: Jenny Slate picks up Landline, a warm family comedy from the director of Obvious Child

Landline is set in 1995. The movie announces as much from the start, but it doesn’t really need to, because scarcely a scene passes without some reminder of this fact. There are, as one might expect, several landline telephones. A younger Hillary Clinton shows up on television, sadly unaware of what the audience knows about her future. Characters discuss Mad About You, rent movies at Blockbuster Video, and crack jokes about Lorena Bobbitt. At one point, someone puts on P.J. Harvey. At another, someone listens to a CD at one of those record-store headphone stations. Not every detail is 100-percent accurate: A scene at an arthouse movie theater, for example, includes a poster for Chungking Express, but the artwork is from the mid-2000s Criterion release. Yes, that’s a nitpick, but any movie this obsessed with its near-past setting should at least get the period signifiers right.

All Tomorrow's Karaokes

John Cale Liverpool Sound City, UK Friday 26th May 2017

Fifty years on and it is time to remember one of the most innovative albums ever impressed onto wax. A delicious dark and jagged confection of nihilism and sulky sophistication unlike it's Liverpudlian counterpart Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, also now fifty, but which was sunny, funny and a bit vaudeville. Both represent a pair of wildly different bookends. The Velvet Underground and Nico was then a monumental, commercial flop, whilst the Beatles album sold in the millions. With half a century under its belt of shiny studded leather, the Velvets album now has an arc of influence that continues to reach into the hearts of those who wish to create a positive noise.

There is something incongruous about the weather, it is clammy and warm, and the sun is blinding, and yet the music we await really should be

Newswire: The new movie from the team behind Obvious Child is going to Amazon

One of the most anticipated movies out of Sundance this year was Landline, which finds the star and director of 2014’s Obvious Child re-teaming for a ’90s-set period piece. The film will indeed have a life beyond Utah: Variety reports that Amazon has gotten the U.S. rights for the movie from Gillian Robespierre starring Jenny Slate. The film focuses on a—what else?—dysfunctional family, whose members include Edie Falco and John Turturro in addition to Slate.

Assessing it for The A.V. Club, A.A. Dowd said it “feels truthful but a little sitcom-easy; the most distinctive thing about it is that it’s set in 1995, which Robespierre goes overboard underlining, with almost every scene finding a way to work in a Clinton-era cultural reference (Must-see TV!), technology (pay phones!), or music cue (Pj Harvey!).” Last Sundance, Amazon acquired Manchester By The Sea, which got a ...

Here Are All The Artists Rumored To Play At Coachella 2017

Anticipation for 2017’s major festivals is at an all time high, with Coachella‘s lineup serving as the holy grail of the entire season. We’ve already heard some rumors about the alleged headliners, while DJ Khaled inadvertently spilled the beans on his slot at the festival. Now we have another enticing update to ponder with a list that attempts to predict the entire lineup.

A website called TravelGrom has consistently made predictions about Coachella lineups in the past with a high degree of accuracy compared to the average rumor, and they’ve just offered up their projections for 2017. While the information is just conjecture at this point, TravelGrom predicted last year’s lineup with 64% accuracy. If that figure holds true again, over half of the list will wind up on the official lineup.

The alleged lineup includes a diverse array of styles, with representation from Edm, Rock, Rap, Pop and everything in between.
