Cinema’s Best Vigilante Films

Lionsgate

Fighting crime and taking the law into their own hands, vigilantes are some of the most kick-ass characters in film. To celebrate the release of action-packed Robin Hood, arriving in cinemas November 21, we’re taking a look at some of the best vigilante films, from John Wick to The Equaliser…

John Wick (2014)

John Wick definitely takes the law into his own hands, but for more personal reasons than others. When legendary assassin John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retires after marrying the love of his life, her sudden death leaves him in mourning. This is spirals out of control when a thug steals his prized car and kills the puppy that was a last gift from his wife. His inner assassin is then unleashed as he seeks revenge for his late wife.

The Equaliser (2014)

Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) is a retired Marine and Defense Intelligence Agency operative who after promising his

Suspiria review – dancing on the grave of a horror classic

This grandiose remake of Dario Argento’s dreamy 1977 masterpiece conjures up all the right witchy ingredients but lacks the original’s joyful abandon

Dario Argento’s dazzling 1977 chiller Suspiria first opened in the UK in a censoriously truncated version, having suffered significant cuts to blunt its extremities. Horror fans were appalled and sought out more complete versions of the film, videotapes of which were promptly confiscated during the “video nasties” hysteria of the early 80s. How things have changed! Today, Luca Guadagnino’s grandiose Suspiria remake can sail into British cinemas with all its bone-cracking, skin-slicing, blood-letting intact – a cause for rejoicing, no doubt. Yet watching this sporadically sparkling yet weirdly saggy “cover version” of Argento’s biggest international hit, I couldn’t help wishing that someone had been there with the scissors to trim the film of its indulgences – not the violence, but the verbosity.

Set in “divided Berlin

Killing the Mother: Luca Guadagnino Discusses "Suspiria"

Luca Guadagnino. Image courtesy of Mubi.Born in Palermo, Sicily, to Italian/Algerian parents, Luca Guadagnino reckons if he hadn’t become a critically acclaimed, award-winning director/producer/screenwriter, his career would probably have revolved around fashion, interior design or historical research. In fact, all of the obsessions that have clearly added to the artistic textures and detailed truths perceived in his eclectic work to date that have made them so remarkable. From his debut crime thriller The Protagonists (1999), the first of five films to star Tilda Swinton, who many call his "muse," to the incisive paean Bertolucci on Bertolucci, Guadagnino has dug deep into the human emotional and identity landscapes while never forfeiting the lush style or delicate sensuality each of his subjects, both real and imaginary, bring to the aesthetic table.After working diligently in both the feature film and documentary arenas Guadagnino’s big-time breakout came with

New to Streaming: ‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post,’ ‘Blindspotting,’ ‘Outlaw King,’ ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’re highlighting the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

Blindspotting (Carlos López Estrada)

Blindspotting is a mess that is likely to lessen in your mind as soon as it’s over, even if you may be utterly absorbed in it in the moment (which I often was). A lot of it is provocation which belies a lack of a real message, or story turns that feel unearned even in the heightened context the movie establishes. But there is undeniable craft here, and an impossible-to-ignore signal that everyone involved in the project deserves attention going forward. What does work is strong, sometimes powerful. – Dan S.

Suspiria Director Luca Guadagnino Wants To Make Prequel Film That Tells The Story of Markos

Suspiria is easily one of the most nightmarishly horrific films of the year. It was pretty jacked-up and it doesn’t look like director Luca Guadagnino is done playing in the dark and disturbing supernatural world of witches.

He’s already teased a sequel in the post-credits scene for the movie, but now he’s got an idea for a prequel film that will explore the head witch Markos. She is the evil demented witch that is looking for a human vessel to live through.

While talking to The Playlist, Guadagnino shared his prequel concept saying:

“I have this image in my mind. I have this image in my mind of Helena Markos in solitude in the year 1212 in Scotland or in Spain. Wondering through a village and trying to find a way on how she can manipulate the women of the village. I have this image. I know she was there,

Video Interview: Mia Goth Talks Suspiria (2018)

  • DailyDead
One of my favorite films of the year, Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria (2018) was one of the best cinematic experiences I have had in some time; a bold and rapturous reimagining that features breathtaking performances from Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth and Chloë Grace Moretz. Suspiria (2018) recently opened in both New York and Los Angeles, and is set to hit theaters for a nationwide rollout this weekend, courtesy of Amazon Studios.

During a recent press day, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with several of the key players from the new Suspiria. Earlier this week, we featured interviews with Guadagnino, Johnson, and Swinton, and for our final video interview, we have Goth on tap to talk all things Suspiria (2018). Goth is someone who impressed me greatly in last year’s A Cure for Wellness, but her performance in this new iteration of Suspiria as Sara is absolutely transcendent, and

Bette Midler Set To Join Julie Taymor’s Gloria Steinem Movie; Steinem & Taymor Check In For Buzzy Afm Buyers Session
Exclusive: Bette Midler is the latest Hollywood star set to join Julie Taymor’s Gloria Steinem biopic The Glorias: A Life On The Road.

Director Taymor revealed the attachment yesterday afternoon during a buzzed-about Afm buyer presentation for the movie, which Steinem herself video-called in for from New York. Many of the key indie and studio buyers were in the room and I hear offers are already being made from major markets.

Oscar-winner Julianne Moore will play feminist icon Steinem with fellow-Oscar winner Alicia Vikander in talks to play the activist between the ages of 20-40. The movie, based on Steinem’s memoir, will follow her journey to become a crusader for equal rights and her groundbreaking work as a journalist and campaigner. The Ms. magazine founder’s story has added resonance in this Time’s Up and #MeToo era. The production is in discussions with a host of Hollywood A-Listers to join the project.

‘Suspiria’ Star Chloë Grace Moretz Praises Film’s Nudity As ‘Empowering’ and ‘Not Voyeuristic in the Slightest’

‘Suspiria’ Star Chloë Grace Moretz Praises Film’s Nudity As ‘Empowering’ and ‘Not Voyeuristic in the Slightest’
[Editor’s note: The following article contains minor spoilers for “Suspiria.”]

Luca Guadagnino is earning heaps of praise for his “Suspiria” remake, an ambitious reinvention of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic. Set at a highly competitive girls’ dance school in Cold War Berlin, the film touches on themes of inherited trauma, hysterical women, and Germany’s postwar shame — all bathed in blood and witchcraft. An unlikely candidate to pass the infamous Bechdel test, which measures gender parity onscreen, “Suspiria” actually features only two male actors, each with a single line apiece.. It’s a slam dunk for women onscreen, though it does put them through a meat-hook-shaped ringer.

Chloë Grace Moretz plays Patricia in the film, a dancer who goes missing from the school and provides the first mention of witchcraft in the movie’s opening scene. At an event during the Provincetown Film Festival in June, Moretz had many nice things to say about Guadagnino. Though she was tight-lipped on details at the time,

"Love Is A Gun" For 'Bonnie and Clyde'

  • SneakPeek
Chloë Grace Moretz of "Kick-Ass" fame and Jack O’Connell ("Unbroken") will star as moronic, 1930's killers, bank robbers 'Bonnie And Clyde' in director Kiké Maillo's "Love Is A Gun", adapting author Jeff Guinn's novel "Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story Of Bonnie And Clyde", targeting an early 2019 start:

Marissa McMahon and Ashley Schlaifer of Kamala Films ("A Private War") are producing with Sean and Bryan Furst ("Daybreakers") for Skybound Entertainment.

The dim-witted bank-robbers killed at least nine police officers and several civilians.

A snapshot of the couple found at an abandoned hide-out, with pistol-toting Bonnie smoking a cigar, was subsequently distributed to the press, positioning the unmarried outlaws on the national media scene, launching their brief careers as 'fun-loving' criminal superstars.

Without Bonnie, the media outside Texas might have dismissed Clyde as a gun-toting punk...

...but a steady stream of photographs kept the media and the Depression-era public wanting more.

The Darkness is Ours to Take in Luca Guadagnino’s Hellish, Operatic and Unapologetically Feminist “Suspiria” Update

“How the hell do you remake Suspiria?!” A valid question all fans of scary movies have wondered since David Gordon Green announced he would repurpose Dario Argento’s legendary Technicolor-soaked supernatural giallo about the sinister events taking place inside an esteemed ballet academy into an all-new experience last decade – an announcement made all the stranger as the project was following his 2008 hit Pineapple Express, though one can argue how a transition from stoner comedy to surrealist horror seems appropriate for him. But as life and the pursuit of creativity goes, Mr. Green left the project to tackle Halloween and Suspiria ended up in the hands of Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino. Alongside writing collaborator David Kajganich, Mr. Guadagnino truly had his work cut out for him on this one, and for this project to be the immediate follow up to his lauded masterwork Call Me by Your Name is a move

Bonnie and Clyde Movie Pairs Chloë Grace Moretz with Jack O’Connell

Tony Sokol Oct 30, 2018

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow turned a depression-era crime spree into an American legend. Love Is A Gun continues the tale.

"I don't want to end up like Bonnie and Clyde," Desmond Dekker and the Aces sang in their 1969 reggae hit "Israelites." Unless it's in the movies. Arthur Penn's 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, which starred Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway as Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, broke the boundaries of stylized violence to expand the gangster movie genre. Chloë Grace Moretz and Jack O’Connell are attached to star as the iconic thieving lovers in Love Is A Gun, coming from director Kiké Maillo, according to Variety.

Love Is a Gun is based on Jeff Guinn's bestselling book Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde. The screenplay was written by Shelton Turner (Up in the Air), wit revisions by Johnny Newman
