Culture Dump #34: Do We Still Need Trailers?

In just a few weeks time we’ll be returning to Jurassic World where in all likelihood, all hell will break loose. We know this because we’ve seen the chaos teased in trailers – alongside the reveal that at least half of this planned calamity will take place off Isla Nublar in a new, previously-unseen mainland environment. Spoilers? Well, sort of – but apparently not spoilerific enough to make Universal Studios decide not to use this info as part of their pre-release marketing campaign. All those waiting for the lights to dim before discovering all of Fallen Kingdom’s secrets… well they might want to give social media, cinema trailers, telly – hell, even web adverts – a miss for the time being, as tricky as that may seem.

And yet revealing (or heavily alluding to) major plot points in movie trailers appears to be becoming more and more commonplace, especially when major tentpole releases are concerned.

It Looks As If Avengers 4 Will Be Recreating The Opening Of Captain America: Civil War

There are many constants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but one thing that certainly won’t ever stand still is Black Widow’s endless experiments in haircuts.

From the weird bouncy doll hair in her Iron Man 2 debut, to the wavy red barnet of Age of Ultron to the Farrah Fawcett 70s spy chic of Civil War, she’s always sporting a new look. Perhaps the most dramatic, however, is to come this May, when she ditches red for blonde in Avengers: Infinity War.

Her hair is so noticeable in fact that, when we saw the Instagram photos from the Avengers 4 set below, we realized very quickly that something was off. Posted by Black Widow stuntwoman (and owner of a super cool name) Heidi Moneymaker, the outfit and hairdo is taken straight from the Lagos-set opening of Captain America: Civil War.

The James Bond movies' special relationship with America

Mark Harrison Sep 19, 2017

Kingsman pulls the leg of the James Bond series - but how have the 007 films put across the relationship between Britain and the USA?

When Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service exploded into cinemas in 2015, it gave the iconic James Bond franchise much the same irreverent treatment that the director's previous Mark Millar adaptation, Kick-Ass, gave to comic book movies. Reviews focused on how the film recontextualised the familiar 007 tropes of guns, girls and gadgets through the lens of class, identity and that notorious final bum note.

In the sequel, Eggsy and the Kingsmen run up against a crime syndicate known as the Golden Circle with a little help from their American cousins, the Statesmen. It neatly shows us that American iconography plays much the same role for their opposite numbers, that liquor-themed codenames will stand in for Arthurian monikers, and most accurately of all, that

Why Barry Norman mattered so much to me

Simon Brew Sep 15, 2017

The late Barry Norman's impact on many of us, and our love for film, will be felt for decades.

I struggle a bit sometimes, with writing about someone whose work meant the world to me in the immediate aftermath of their death. For one, I’m no fan of the clickbait culture, whereby as soon as a passing is announced, there’s a seeming compulsion to bash out an accompanying top ten list (that's not a slight against those who wrote terrific, long-form personal pieces). But more than that, I find it hard to concentrate my thoughts.

That was particularly the case with Barry Norman, a man without whom I wouldn’t be doing what I was doing.

Like many of you, I got into film in a serious way in my early teens. I tended – and I had a good home life, so this is

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner

  • Cineplex
10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade RunnerKurt Anthony9/13/2017 9:16:00 Am

Thirty-five years ago, from Ridley Scott, director of Alien, came Blade Runner – a chilling, bold, mesmerizing, and futuristic detective thriller.

Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s visionary novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Blade Runner was released in theatres on June 25, 1982 and has since earned the title of one of the best science fiction films of all time.

Despite the film’s estimated budget of $28M, Blade Runner was not an instant success. The complex plot and slow pacing resulted in low box office numbers, but the dystopian sci-fi classic eventually garnered a cult following and became a leading example of the neo-noir genre.

While we await the highly anticipated release of Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel, journey with us to the savage world of the year 2019 as

Blu-ray Review – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: 50th Anniversary Special Edition (1966)

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: 50th Anniversary Special Edition, 1966.

Directed by Sergio Leone.

Starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach.


Okay, it’s been 51 years since The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was released, but who’s counting? This new 50th Anniversary Special Edition from Kino Lorber pulls out all the stops with a 4K remastered image, theatrical and extended versions of the film on separate discs, and a big helping of bonus features, including three commentary tracks, deleted scenes, and a bunch of documentary materials.

Some film fans revere Sergio Leone the way others revere Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, and other directors with more recognizable names. I’ll admit to having arrived at Leone a bit later in life. Sure, I recognized A Fistful of Dollars in Back to the Future Part II, I knew about the longer version of Once Upon a Time in America,

Newswire: Adidas actually made Life Aquatic shoes, but it’s probably too late to buy them

Everybody loves those Nike Air Mags from Back To The Future Part II, especially since the company actually sells them from time to time, but they’re definitely not the only pair of badass kicks you can usually only find in a movie. There’s also the customized Team Zissou-branded Adidas Roms from Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic, which sneaker-loving film buffs have been pestering Adidas to make for years. Finally, the company came through earlier this month, but you may have already missed your chance to buy a pair of the custom blue and yellow Roms.

As reported by Sneaker News (via Vice), Adidas produced a limited run of 100 Team Zissou Roms and sold them exclusively at the We Love Green music festival in Paris in honor of an appearance from Seu Jorge, whose music was featured prominently in the film. Vice has reached out to Adidas ...

Rumor: Reverse-Flash Will Be The Villain Of The Flash, WB Planning Flashpoint Film

A glut of supposed leaks about future movies in the DC Extended Universe have just appeared on 4chan. If these allegations are to be believed, we can look forward to Supergirl turning up in Man of Steel 2, Nightwing being fast-tracked into production and the Joker showing up in Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie.

Another rumour that’s sprung up from 4chan (via Reddit) today concerns The Flash, and it claims that both Robert Zemeckis and Matthew Vaughn are in contention to direct. We already knew that though, and so that’s not terribly surprising to hear. What is surprising, however, is the second part of the rumor, which you can see below.

Robert Zemeckis and Mathew Vaughn, who was also offered the Man of Steel sequel, are the top candidates to direct The Flash. The studio wants the Reverse Flash as the main antagonist with the character returning for a

Hugh Jackman Gets Specific On Early Scripted Sabretooth Scene In Logan

Logan is a near perfect film and one of my top five superhero movies. Though the Wolverine Trilogy started on an incredibly low note with X-Men: Wolverine Origins, the film did offer a much more interesting and dynamic take on Wolverine's nemesis/half-brother, Victor Creed aka Sabretooth. When capping off the trilogy, there was talk that Liev Schrieber was at one point set to return, completing his arc with Logan. Though the character didn't make it past the writing phase, we now have details on exactly what Sabretooth's role was in an earlier draft of the script.

Hugh Jackman discussed Sabretooth's near-appearance in Logan with Collider; first about the frustration of figuring out an organic way to bring back Logan's half-brother:

“[Director James Mangold] and I did talk about it. For my money, he was the best thing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I thought Ryan made a lot out of his bit for it.

Doctor Who series 10: the hidden roots of its graphic design

Pete Dillon-Trenchard May 15, 2017

Doctor Who graphic designer Matthew Clark helps us dig a little deeper into some of series 10's mysteries...

A few weeks ago, in the viewing notes for Doctor Who series 10's second episode, Smile, I mentioned that the craft used by the colonists was marked ‘Erewhon 190484’ and asked for your theories. Many of you correctly pointed out that Erewhon is the name of a Samuel Butler novel about a dystopian society whose inhabitants live in fear of machines (And not ‘nowhere’ backwards, as I’d rather rashly stated - sorry about that…).

Newswire: Here’s all the fancy bells and whistles on Spidey’s new Homecoming suit

Most people are lucky to get a snazzy tie pin or a used pocket square as the accessories for their Homecoming suit. Not so for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, with Marvel releasing a new graphic today showing off all the high-tech bells and whistles in Peter Parker’s latest duds. Designed by Tony Stark, it’s a versatile bit of kit, complete with built-in Gps, enhanced web shooters, and that detachable recon drone we saw in the latest trailer. (Director Jon Watts says it’s called “droney,” which is pretty dang cute.)

(Chuck Zlotnick / Sony Pictures Entertainment)

The suit also sports web wings (for gliding aerodynamically over helicopters), “expressive eyes,” and auto-fitting technology. That’s right: Iron Man has finally mastered self-fitting tech, meaning Spider-Man is one step closer to living every nerd’s dream of having Marty McFly’s outfit from Back To The Future Part II.
