Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and Bond 25 find cinematographers, and they’re not Roger Deakins

Having finally won an Oscar for his work with Denis Villeneuve on last year’s Blade Runner 2049, legendary filmmaker Roger Deakins is set to set out Villeneuve’s next film(s), the two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune.

According to a report at Variety, Dune will see Villeneueve – who has worked with Deakins on Prisoners, Sicario and the Blade Runner sequel – teaming with cinematographer Greig Fraser, whose credits include Zero Dark Thirty, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the upcoming Vice and The Mandalorian.

And, if you were hoping that might open up the door for a return to the Bond franchise for Deakins after his work on Skyfall, we’re afraid not as new Bond 25 director Cary Fukunaga has reportedly hired Oscar-winner Linus Sandgren to shoot the next 007 adventure.

As for Deakins, he’s recently completed shooting The Goldfinch for director John Crowley, and is

The 30th Anniversary of the Ultimate Christmas Film: Die Hard

Tom Jolliffe celebrates Die Hard on its 30th anniversary…

When a film hits a significant anniversary, say 30 years old, there are two things that happen. In one, for those who were but wee blighters when they first saw the film, it will make you feel old. I first saw Die Hard on video, a couple of years after its release. About 28 years ago, when I was…oh lord…really? Man, I’m feeling old. Secondly though, when a film remains as revered as Die Hard, some 30 years on, you fully appreciate just how well crafted and impeccable the film is. It’s possibly The definitive American action film. For the record too, it’s a Christmas film. The working class, every man hero battles the consumerist terrorists to reunite with his family for a season of goodwill and festivities. It’s also set at Christmas time. There’s tinsel, trees

Film Review: ‘Ghostbox Cowboy’

  • Variety
Wild West capitalism hits the Far East with a vengeance in documentarian John Maringouin’s adventuresome first narrative feature, “Ghostbox Cowboy.” This original if sometimes befuddling vision blurs the line between fiction and documentary elements, conventional storytelling and improvisational collage, all to oft-bracing effect. Starring indie-cinema regulars David Zellner and Robert Longstreet as Yank hustler-entrepreneurs wading into the financially frenetic waters of the People’s Republic, it’s a freewheeling absurdist parable that might be dubbed “Fear and Loathing in the Chinese Economic Miracle.”

Though by its very nature somewhat uneven and unwieldy, what Maringouin has wrought here has a kind of exhilarating chaos to it, something comparable to relatively few prior films. Alexsey German’s just-restored 1998 “Khrustalvoy, My Car!” and the prime-time Fellini of “8 1/2” come to mind as similar phantasmagorias of modernity’s institutions run amuck.

Appropriately for the era it depicts, “Ghostbox” has a much more jittery, digital aesthetic than those movies,
