Three Summers Review – Eiff 2018

As the 16th annual Westival gets underway, festival goers old and new descend on Gladstone Heritage Village in Western Australia and immediately settle into their rival camps: Aboriginal and Morris dancers, punk rockers and ukulele players, winos and musos. Among them are pretentious theremin technician Roland (Robert Sheehan), an Irish dog-washer making his Westival debut in the small workshop hut, and folksy fiddler Keevey (Rebecca Breeds), a seasoned pro who tours with family outfit The Warrickins. Following an ampli-frying duet in which Roland recognises latent talent in Keevey, their mutual attraction threatens to give way to unrequited admiration when he inadvertently criticises her folk rock roots.

Ben Elton’s first film since Maybe Baby in 2000, after which he moved to Freemantle, Western Australia and gained Australian citizenship, Three Summers draws from his experiences of nearby Fairbridge folk festival and presumably his marriage to a bass player to tell the story of a fictional festival.

Antonio Banderas (‘Genius: Picasso’): We ‘travel through life with a backpack filled with greatness and miseries’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Antonio Banderas (‘Genius: Picasso’): We ‘travel through life with a backpack filled with greatness and miseries’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“I try to always not establish a morality or judgement over them and try to play them as human beings. We all are human beings who travel through life with a backpack filled with greatness and miseries. Picasso was no different even with this genius side of his persona,” reveals Antonio Banderas about playing the good and bad sides of iconic painter Pablo Picasso. He stars in the NatGeo limited series “Genius: Picasso” and discusses the project in our exclusive webchat (watch the exclusive video above). He adds, “In his private life he had a lot of controversial situations, not only just with women which is very known, but his friends and the relationship with the world in general.”

For the NatGeo program, Banderas plays the older Spanish legend while Alex Rich portrays the famous painter as a younger man. Others in these episodes include T.R. Knight, Clemence Posey, Poppy Delevingne,

Peter Jackson has revealed why Mortal Engines took 10 years to make

Peter Jackson has spoken about what caused Mortal Engines to take 10 years to be made.

While Jackson isn’t directing Mortal Engines – that task falls to protégé Christian Rivers – the film is certainly near and dear to the writer/producer’s heart. Jackson has revealed that Mortal Engines has been in the works since 2008 but because the technology wasn’t ready, the film had to be put on hold.

Speaking to ScreenRant, Jackson said: “Certainly, digital CG people and digital doubles are the thing that has really clicked in the last few years. And I’m sure we’ll be seeing quite a bit of that in some of the people I’ve shot on this film. Because this movie is the sort of scale that you can’t really build sets. I mean, we’re building as many sets as we can and we’re building what we can

London's Calling in First Trailer for Peter Jackson-Produced 'Mortal Engines'

London's Calling in First Trailer for Peter Jackson-Produced 'Mortal Engines'
The first trailer for the Peter Jackson-produced Mortal Engines sees the city of London causing all sorts of global bother — in a very undignified and un-British manner.

Based on the steampunk-infused, dystopic novels of Peter Reeve, the pic tells the story of a future where the world's major cities are mechanized vehicles that prey on smaller traction towns in a struggle dubbed the "survival of the fastest."

Mortal Engines was directed by Jackson's longtime Kiwi collaborator Christian Rivers. The movie stars Hugo Weaving, singer-songwriter Jihae, Robert Sheehan and Icelandic actress Hera Hilmar as the lead ...

‘Mortal Engines’: Peter Jackson Introduces Post-Apocalyptic World in First Trailer

Universal has released a unique first trailer for “Mortal Engines,” depicting a world of predator cities existing thousands of years after current civilization has been destroyed by a cataclysmic event.

New Mortal Engines Trailer Shows off an Impressive Post-Apocalyptic World

  • Cinelinx
A brand new trailer for Mortal Engines has arrived, showing off the epic scale of the film's world, while giving us a better look at the characters. Come inside to check it out!

Had enough trailers for today? Well too bad! Not only have we seen trailers for The Lego Movie 2 and Bumblebee, but today also brings an impressive new trailer for the Peter Jackson produced Mortal Engines:

The first trailer offered up a more reserved look at the upcoming book adaptation, mostly just setting the tone and setting of this post-apocalyptic world. Thankfully, this new trailer dives way deeper into the lore while showing off the epic visual effects/design of the 'crawling' cities.

Seriously, the visuals alone are enough to pique my interest, and the characters seem engaging enough (I'm a sucker for Hugo Weaving as a villain). To be honest, I wasn't all that interested in Mortal Engines,

Mortal Engines Trailer #2: Peter Jackson Unleashes His Next Epic

Mortal Engines Trailer #2: Peter Jackson Unleashes His Next Epic
A brand new Mortal Engines trailer has arrived. Peter Jackson brought one of the most epic and beloved trilogies of all time to the big screen with The Lord of the Rings. While The Hobbit was much less beloved as a trilogy, the man knows how to handle fantasy movies on a massive scale arguably better than anyone else on the planet. Mortal Engines looks to be right up his alley, but this also looks to be quite different than anything else he's ever put his name on in the past.

The prior Mortal Engines trailer was very much a teaser, giving us a brief look at one of the big action set pieces. This gives us a much better idea of the true scope that this movie is handling and what it's going to be about, at least in broad terms. The word epic is thrown around a lot,

Impressive Full Trailer for 'Mortal Engines' Produced by Peter Jackson

"I've been looking for you for a long time." Universal has debuted the full-length official trailer for the sci-fi adaptation Mortal Engines, based on a popular book series. This adaptation has been in the works for years, in development by Peter Jackson and the Lotr/Hobbit team. Jackson is not directing, instead he's letting a VFX supervisor from Weta make his directorial debut. The fantastically eccentric ensemble cast includes Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide, and Stephen Lang. While they're still not done yet, this does have some amazing VFX from Weta. The plot in this, which reminds me a bit of Dune at first glance, is about huge cities that move around and battle against each other. I have to say - I'm very impressed, this looks awesome, with a huge scope and scale that seems like it might be exciting to get into this world.
