‘What Keeps You Alive’ Trailer: A Bloody Lesbian Horror Comes to SXSW

Roles Where Actors Portrayed Much Older Characters

  • Cinelinx
New Year’s resolutions are a time to work towards a transformation of your body and/or your life. To honor these goals, this month we’re going to look at transformative roles in film. This week we look at some prominent examples of actors played characters that are much older than the actors’ actual age.

It’s one thing to mentally prepare to play a character in a movie or a play. It’s another thing to physically transform yourself in order to better identify with the role. Some transformations are only skin deep; extensive makeup or prosthetics may be sufficient to pull of the necessary look. Other transformations are more involved; many actors may take part in weeks, if not months, of preparations for a role. This can include intense training, specialized diets, and exhaustive exercise routines. The end result of an actor going through such a transformation

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: New Visions – “The Hunger”

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: New Visions – “The Hunger”…

For thousands of years, it had drifted above the outer rim of the Galaxy, draining life from all the worlds it found there. Now, it has learned of the banquet of populous planets near the heart of the Milky Way, and is heading there at terrifying speed—with only the Enterprise standing in its way.

In Issue#19 of John Byrne’s Star Trek: New Visions, here titled “The Hunger”, our photoplay is given practically the full issue to unfurl and thus giving Mr. Byrne ample room to not only deliver a fully fleshed out tale, but also to hone his photomontage talents too.

With the Enterprise and its crew beating previously set records for intergalactic travel they come across a long-dead planet that is utterly lifeless, even down to the microorganisms.

Review: Interred with Their Bones—Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049"

  • MUBI
There’s a nagging question at the heart of Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, and it’s to do with need. Why does Ryan Gosling’s Detective K need a robot wife (Ana de Armas), programmed to speak in a diaphanous lisp? Why does he need an apartment? What purpose is there for a robot to blend in? Everyone in his world can almost smell his oiled gears, his falseness. So why does he need the trappings of reality? Like Twin Peaks: The Return, Blade Runner 2049 has to interrogate its own incongruous existence so many years after the artifact that gave it life first entered the cultural bloodstream. Why does this film exist, beyond the potential box office? Why have writer Hampton Fancher and producer Ridley Scott gone back here? Who needs this? The film seems aware of itself as an automaton theatrical event. It watches itself; taking place behind glass,

Musician to Movie Star: In the Footsteps of Elvis

With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…

In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.

Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to

‘What Happened to Monday’ Review: Noomi Rapace Plays Seven Sisters Who Can’t Get a Break

‘What Happened to Monday’ Review: Noomi Rapace Plays Seven Sisters Who Can’t Get a Break
Noomi Rapace proved her action bonafides as the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but nothing in her badass career features the range on display in “What Happened to Monday” While Tommy Wirkola’s cheesy B-movie plays like outtakes from “Orphan Black” shot on leftover sets from “The Hunger Games,” Rapace throws herself into the zany challenge at hand. Simply put, she plays seven twin sisters in a dystopian society that finds them battling for survival against murky government forces; even as the movie sags into clichés, she remains its enticing centerpiece, shifting from one character to the next, often within the confines of an action-packed scene. She can’t save the movie from mediocrity, but the gimmick of her performance at least injects it with a recurring source of fascination.

“What Happened to Monday” poses its main question in the title, but the other days of the week are implicated as well.

Underground Film Screening: Austin, September 23, 1966

From the Austin Daily Texan, September 22, 1966

Film-Makers’ Co-Op Shows ‘The Wild One

The Gulf Coast Film-Makers’ Co-Op, an off campus student organization, will inaugurate its Film Factory at 8 p.m., Friday.

Founded to encourage student film-making, Film-Makers’ Co-Op is a result of interest among university students for a place to show and make films. Spokesmen cite the fact that at present there isn’t any University course for the beginning student who wants to make creative films, and of the two courses devoted to film on campus, both are oriented for radio and TV majors.

The Group has received support from the New American Cinema groups on both east and west coasts. Independent film-makers like Bruce Baillie and Robert Nelson from California have provided films for the first program. In New York, Pop Artist Andy Warhol will provide his newest film, “Camp” with Baby Jane Holzer and Jack Smith, for

Title Card For Aquaman Movie Revealed as the Film Starts Shooting

Outside of Justice League footage and the photos released of Jason Mamoa grimacing, we haven't seen a lot regarding Aquaman. Today just a little more on the film has been released as it starts shooting. Warner Bros. sent out a press release which included the title card for the DC superhero film, and it kinda looks like a warped Star Trek logo. Compared to past Aquaman logos, it's definitely a bit more rigid than past incarnations and looks a whole lot less like an A, which is the original intention behind the logo.

New McDonald's Uniforms Make Staff Look Like Star Wars Villains
While you might not be able to lock down a good job with the Imperial Senate, you can start working for McDonald's, where your uniform will make you feel like part of the Empire's massive fleet. This year, McDonald's has decided to give their floor crew a makeover. And the new uniforms are being slammed. As they truly make the wait staff and cook team look like Darth Vader's minions.

You can decide for yourself if they succeeded or failed, with some of the better tweets included below courtesy of CNBC. But most social media pundits are calling foul on this new look, as

David Bowie and the Indestructible Metaphors of Mirror Scenes

A video essay examines our most private moments.

Strap on your thinking caps for this one, film fans, because it’s a doozy.

According to director Nicolas Roeg (The Man Who Fell to Earth, Don’t Look Now, The Witches), mirrors are cinema in all its glory and in fact the essence of the medium. See, mirrors are the only time we truly look at ourselves; photographs of us are from other perspectives, for other people or posterity, and as such we don’t show our real faces in them, we show projections of who we think we should be or how we think we should feel in a certain situation. But the mirror isn’t public, it’s private, it is us alone with ourselves and thus the way we look into mirrors, into ourselves, is different from every other face we show the world.

The mirror is an eye, Roeg
