First Trailer for ‘Friday’s Child,’ from Terrence Malick Collaborator A.J. Edwards

Friday’s Child, a new crime drama from The Better Angels director A.J. Edwards, initially premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival, and now, ahead of a Shanghai International Film Festival bow, the first trailer has arrived. The film tells the story of 18-year-old Richie Wincott (Tye Sheridan) who, after being involved in a robbery-gone-wrong, must avoid altercations with the police. All the while, Richie’s developing – albeit, implausible – relationship with a friend (Imogen Poots) is intercepted by a mysterious outsider (Caleb Landry Jones).

Taking a look at the trailer, A.J. Edwards’ use of drastically wide lenses, phantasmal camera moves, and an eerily hypnotic score establishes a style strikingly reminiscent of Terrence Malick’s – although this shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering Edwards has been a career-long pupil of Malick. With contributions on Malick’s The New World, The Tree of Life, and To The Wonder, it

‘Friday’s Child’ Exclusive Trailer: Terrence Malick’s Protégé A.J. Edwards Turns The Crime Genre Into Visual Poetry

‘Friday’s Child’ Exclusive Trailer: Terrence Malick’s Protégé A.J. Edwards Turns The Crime Genre Into Visual Poetry
After making an impression at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, A.J. Edwards’ “Friday’s Child” is gearing up to compete at the Shanghai International Film Festival later this month. IndieWire is celebrating the occasion with the exclusive debut of the film’s trailer, which is the kind of visual jaw-dropper moviegoers should start expecting from Edwards.

“Friday’s Child” stars Tye Sheridan as Richie Wincott, an 18-year-old fresh out of foster care who becomes the prime suspect in a botched robbery. Wincott’s mission to avoid being captured by the police and the arrival of a stranger threatening to reveal his past (Caleb Landry Jones) cause problems for his budding romance with an unlikely friend (Imogen Poots).

Mad Max meets Romeo + Juliet in Image’s The New World

Image Comics has announced the upcoming launch of The New World, a ballistic, science-fiction, action, romance miniseries from Alex Kot (Zero) and Tradd Moore (Luther Strode), which is set to get underway in July with an oversized 72-page debut issue.

Set in The United States of America—after the Second Civil War—The New World follows two lovers. One: a straight-edge vegan hacker anarchist boy with a penchant for messing with the State. The other: a chaotic, hedonistic cop with a reality TV show and a license to kill. This really shouldn’t happen—and yet, somehow, it does. Soon, the entire state of New California is after them—so they have to run.

The New World #1 will go on sale on Wednesday, July 25th.

‘The Tree of Life’ Is Coming to the Criterion Collection With 50 Minutes of New Footage

‘The Tree of Life’ Is Coming to the Criterion Collection With 50 Minutes of New Footage
Seven years after winning the Palme d’Or at Cannes, “The Tree of Life” continues to grow. Variety reports that Terrence Malick’s 139-minute masterwork is coming to the Criterion Collection later this year with 50 minutes of new footage, much of it revolving around the Texas family played by Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, and Sean Penn. The film’s breathtaking birth-of-the-universe sequence remains unchanged.

“Terry doesn’t see this as a director’s cut,” Criterion president Peter Becker tells Variety, adding that the original theatrical version is indeed the official “director’s cut.” “It’s a fresh view of the film that has a different rhythm and a different balance.

“There’s a kind of cloud of myth that surrounds ‘The Tree of Life,’ that somewhere there’s a long-lost five-hour cut that was never released. That’s not the case,” Becker adds. “The film that he presented in Cannes

Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ Gets Longer Criterion Version

Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ Gets Longer Criterion Version
Terrence Malick has secretly been working on an extended version of “The Tree of Life,” which will be included by the Criterion Collection as a supplement to an enhanced special-edition Blu-ray and DVD release later this year.

The film, which won the Palme d’Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, has grown 50 minutes of new branches — although roots might be a better metaphor, since the additional material focuses primarily on the lives of the O’Brien family (characters played by Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain) and the backstory of Jack (Sean Penn), whose search for meaning in the wake of his brother’s death drives a transcendental quest unlike any previously depicted on film.

“Terry doesn’t see this as a director’s cut,” says Criterion president Peter Becker, who insists that the 139-minute theatrical version is the official “director’s cut” and remains the centerpiece of the Blu-Ray edition.

  • HeyUGuys
BT are about to mark a historical first with the announcement that they will be premiering the very first episode of AMC’s The Terror, for free, on YouTube.

Inspired by a true story, “The Terror” centres on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into uncharted territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, “The Terror” highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements but with each other.

2018 Oscars: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ would be the first cinematography champ to defeat a Best Picture-nominated film in 12 years

After wins this weekend at the American Society of Cinematographers and BAFTA, “Blade Runner 2049” appears to be well-positioned for the Oscars. Nothing is a sure thing with hard-luck 13-time loser Roger Deakins, but if he pulls this out, this would be the first time in 12 years that a non-Best Picture nominee beat a Best Picture nominee for Best Cinematography.

The last film to do this was “Memoirs of a Geisha” (2005), which edged out Best Picture nominees “Brokeback Mountain” and “Good Night, and Good Luck,” and non-Best Picture contenders “Batman Begins” and “The New World.” The following year’s Best Cinematography field was comprised entirely of non-Best Picture nominees — “Pan’s Labyrinth” beat “The Black Dahlia,” “Children of Men,” “The Illusionist” and “The Prestige” — so that is the last time a non-Best Picture nominee won the category. Since then, every cinematography champ has vied for the top award.

Berlin Facetime: Director Lance Daly on ‘Black 47’

Berlin Facetime: Director Lance Daly on ‘Black 47’
Lance Daly’s “Black 47” is a potent mix of social drama and violent revenge story, centering its intense action during Ireland’s Great Famine. Daly recruited an exceptionally strong cast for “Black 47,” including Hugo Weaving, Stephen Rea, Jim Broadbent, Moe Dunford and Barry Keoghan. With the film premiering Feb. 16 at Berlinale, Daly spoke with Variety about his inspirations, challenges, and what’s on the horizon. By Nick Clement

What inspired you to tell this story?

The Great Famine of 1845-1852 was the single most important event in Irish history. It had a catastrophic effect on the country’s population, and considering the amazing generation of Irish filmmakers that came before me, I was stunned that this period had never before been dramatized in cinema. After making the film, I can understand why…

Who are some of your influences?

I’m inspired by Leone, Kurosawa and Peckinpah, and we screened and debated “The Duellists,” “The New World,” “Aguirre

Terrence Malick’s ‘To the Wonder’ Gets Expanded in First Trailer for ‘Thy Kingdom Come’

Considering how much footage is shot when it comes to the films of Terrence Malick, we often see varying editions (The New World) and versions (Voyage of Time), not to mention the numerous actors whose characters are completely cut out of the film. It was only a matter of time before an entirely different film was made of the unused footage, and now that’s the case when it comes to extra materials left in the editing bay from To the Wonder.

Back in 2010, photojournalist Eugene Richards was hired by Malick to venture into the town Bartlesville, Oklahoma with Javier Bardem as his priest character. Over the course of the shoot, they spoke to the townspeople, ranging from a former Ku Klux Klan leader to a woman who recounted her stories of sexual assault. While some of this was seen in the final film, of course, there was mountains of it left over.

Canon Of Film: ‘Days of Heaven’

In this edition of Canon Of Film, we look back at ‘Days of Heaven‘, writer/director Terrence Malick‘s sophomore masterpiece. For the story behind the genesis of the Canon, you can click here.

Days Of Heaven (1979)

Director/Screenplay: Terrence Malick

It’s not just that Terrence Malick only works when he’s inspired. He also only works when he gets the money, and even then, if he can’t do exactly what he wants to do–instead of compromising–he abandons the project entirely, deciding it better to get only what he wants than to get a compromised version, and often what he wants is some of the most amazingly difficult and nearly impossible-to-shoot scenes. In Days of Heaven, arguably his best film, all the scenes outdoors and in the daytime were shot during the “magic hour” (Film Dictionary: Magic Hour- The time during the day, about an hour

Unseen Pleasures: My 20 Most Unmissable New Films of 2018

  • MUBI
Below is a strictly personal, unapologetically idiosyncratic list of the twenty films I'm most looking forward to in 2018 and which have so far yet to be seen by any paying audiences. Among those seriously considered but ultimately excluded on the basis that they're more likely to be ready next year are Ad Astra (James Gray), Blessed Virgin (Paul Verhoeven), The Fire Next Time (Mati Diop), Late Spring (Michelangelo Frammartino), the particularly-dynamite-on-paper Martin Eden (Pietro Marcello), Mektoub, My Love: Canto Due (Abdellatif Kechiche) and Motorboats (Yuri Ancarani). I also reluctantly discarded a couple of highly tantalising projects whose status, at the time of writing, was frustratingly unclear, namely Tijuana Bible (Jean-Charles Hue) and the worryingly long-in-gestation You Can't Win (Robinson Devor). Omitted because they're made primarily for TV rather than cinemas: Martin Scorsese's The Irishman (Netflix) and Bruno Dumont's Coincoin and the Extra-Humans (Arté). Finally, Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir: Part I

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 2 Recap: What World Are You Living In?

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Life is a series of moments, strung together, rarely with much sensitivity or sense. Let’s look at two such moments, each from the teaser sequence of The X-Files’ second episode of its eleventh season (an installment titled “This,” written and directed by series executive producer Glen Morgan). The first: A car—its radio blasting the Ramones’ cover of “California Sun”—races toward a destination. The second: A pair of people—colleagues at first, then friends, then lovers, now middle-aged familiars—rests on a couch. One moment active, one moment passive, both on a collision course. But at this juncture, each instant exists unto itself. “There is only this—all else is unreal,” mused a character in Terrence Malick’s great romantic historical The New World (2005). (A prescient rhyme, perhaps,
