Shadow Of The Colossus remake coming to PS4

Ryan Lambie Oct 31, 2017

Classic action adventure Shadow Of The Colossus is getting a lavish remake for the PlayStation 4...

When Shadow Of The Colossus came out in 2005, it was towards the end of the PlayStation 2's life - and the melancholy action-adventure pushed Sony's ageing console almost to breaking point. As those amazing giant monsters hoved into view, the processor would stutter and smoke just to keep up with the action; the game was still a classic, but we couldn't help wondering at the time, what would the game look like on a PlayStation 3?

Twin Peaks season 4 being considered

Shamus Kelley Kirsten Howard Oct 31, 2017

Co-creator Mark Frost says Showtime is "musing" on Twin Peaks season 4...

The Twin Peaks revival ended on a massive cliffhanger, leaving fans wondering if that would truly be the end for the series. Could they be left on a cliffhanger once again, just like they were at the end of season two all the way back in the 90s? Was the ending of season three even really a cliffhanger if you looked at closely? Fans aren't sure, but they might be getting more.

Matt Dillon in first image from Lars von Trier’s The House That Jack Built

The first image has arrived online from The House That Jack Built, the next film from Nymphomaniac director Lars von Trier, which stars Matt Dillon as a serial killer called Jack.

The House That Jack Built tells the story of “the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and introduces the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack’s point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork.”

Joining Dillon in the cast of the film are Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Ed Speleers, Sofie Grabol, Riley Keough and Yu Ji-tae. It is slated for release next year.

First Look at Lars von Trier’s Serial Killer Drama ‘The House That Jack Built’

If one is missing some provocation in this year’s cinematic landscape, fear not, as Lars von Trier will premiere a new film next year. His serial killer drama The House That Jack Built completed production earlier this year, and now the first still has arrived.

Starring Matt Dillon, Uma Thurman, Bruno Ganz, Riley Keough, Siobhan Fallon Hogan, Ed Speleers, and Sofia Grabol, the film spans 12 years and will be split into “five incidents” (aka the murders) and then the “digressions” in between, as Jack attempts to create the “ultimate artwork” in his vocation.

”I don’t find anything especially interesting about serial killers,” Lars von Trier tells Screen Daily. ”It’s more the women. For some strange reason all the women I have been with have been crazy about serial killers. That might have something to do with me. Also I thought I could fool people to go into the cinema.

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Review – Breathe (2017)

Breathe, 2017.

Directed by Andy Serkis.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander, Ed Speleers, Diana Rigg, Dean-Charles Chapman, and Hugh Bonneville.

Synopsis:

The inspiring true love story of Robin and Diana Cavendish, an adventurous couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating disease. Their heartwarming celebration of human possibility marks the directorial debut of Andy Serkis.

Andy Serkis is clearly a master at expressing emotion without the means to speak or emote like a regular human being (he is most famous for motion capture work, specifically as Caesar in the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy), so it only feels right that he doesn’t stray too far from his comfort zone with his directorial debut, Breathe. The film tells the true life story of Robin Cavendish (Andrew Garfield in a hugely limited physical role that he impresses in, assuredly thanks to both his natural talent

Outlander: Read This If You Want to Know If Brianna Reunites With Claire or Jamie

We hope you weren't too distracted by the Claire-Jamie reunion on Outlander not to shed a few tears for Claire and her daughter, Brianna. The two part ways in 1968 after Brianna tells her mother that it's Ok to leave - Brianna is an adult now and doesn't need her mother the same way she did as a child, so she wants her mother to be happy and that means being with Jamie. It still isn't an easy decision. Actress Caitriona Balfe told us that Claire deciding to go back to Jamie "means saying goodbye to her daughter, probably forever. It's not something she takes lightly."

“Breathe” aims to return Andrew Garfield to Oscar contention

After being snubbed for his performance in The Social Network, Andrew Garfield took a detour from the awards season for a while. Part of that was his turn as Spider-Man, to be sure, though overall he just wasn’t making Academy friendly fare. Then, last year found him in contention for a pair of prestige titles, with Hacksaw Ridge and Silence. The former got Garfield his first nomination, while the latter expanded his range. This week, Breathe opens and hopes to propel Garfield back into the Best Actor field. All of the ingredients are there, so it’s definitely possible that we’re entering a period of time where Garfield will consistently be in the Oscar hunt. The film is a biopic of Robin Cavendish (Garfield) and Diana Cavendish (Claire Foy), a couple that defied the odds in truly spectacular fashion. When Robin is diagnosed with polio and loses the

Outlander Season 4: Orphan Black, Downton Abbey Vets Land Key Roles

Breathe, 2017.

Directed by Andy Serkis.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander, Hugh Bonneville, Ed Speleers, Stephen Mangan, and Dean-Charles Chapman.

Synopsis:

When young married couple Robin and Diana have their new lives in Kenya violently halted by his devastating polio diagnosis, their fight to prevent his status as a responaut – one who is entirely reliant on a respirator to stay alive – from stopping him living a life outside hospital walls goes on to radically transform the way the world views – and cares for – the severely disabled.

The directorial debut of Andy Serkis, Breathe sees the actor famed for his motion-capture expertise and CGI spectaculars, in new territory.

Second Opinion – Remainder (2015)

Remainder, 2015.

Directed by Omer Fast.

Starring Tom Sturridge, Cush Jumbo, Ed Speleers, Arsher Ali, Shaun Prendergast and Laurence Spellman.

Synopsis:

A London man who loses his memory when he’s struck by a falling object develops a way to reconstruct his past.

A directorial debut from Israeli video artist Omer Fast, and adapted from Tom McCarthy’s novel, Remainder is an infinite loop of unnerving, sinister and mind-bending cause-and-effect.

The story focuses on an unnamed male protagonist in his late twenties or early thirties, played fantastically by Tom Sturridge, as he wakes up from a coma with little to no memory of his life before an accident that left him physically and mentally crippled. Fast works visual clues to their maximum potential to fully immerse in this story, as Sturridge’s character recreates scenes based on the small fragments of memory he still has.

Beginning fairly harmlessly, Remainder gives off

Movie Review – Remainder (2015)

Remainder, 2015.

Directed by Omer Fast.

Starring Tom Sturridge, Cush Jumbo, Ed Speleers, Arsher Ali, Shaun Prendergast and Laurence Spellman.

Synopsis:

A London man attempts to reconstruct his memory after being struck by a falling object.

Memory.

1. The faculty by which the mind stores and remembers information.

2. Something remembered from the past.

3. A potentially faltering and problematic thing with the capacity to occlude and confuse.

In Remainder, the feature film debut from Omer Fast, an intricately woven web of ideas and codes is constructed, both on-screen and off. The viewer is lured into a perplexing thriller that brings philosophical vision into a detailed run through of noir-ish themes and psychological horror plays. Adapted from Tom McCarthy’s cult novel, the movie shares the disturbing nature of films as diverse as Memento, Mulholland Drive, Pi and Spellbound.

Fast is an acclaimed visual artist well versed in the mind’s potential for playing tricks on an individual.
