‘Big Fish & Begonia’ review: Dirs. Xuan Liang, Chun Zhang (2018)

Big Fish and Begonia review: China’s new animated feature revolves around a 16-year-old girl who travels to the human world in the form of a dolphin and forms a connection with a human boy.

Big Fish and Begonia review by Orestes Adam.

Big Fish and Begonia review

Unlike Japan’s world-dominating animation industry, China is significantly lacking in the toon department. The fact that a film as rich as Big Fish & Begonia had to be delayed for over 12 years, only to be crowdfunded and make over half a billion Yuan in China upon its release shows how desperately its audience is in need of its own animated fables, particularly with such fantastical mythologies and philosophies to draw from. The dawn of China’s animation industry additionally presents a unique opportunity, as it stands free from the fixed style that is Japanese anime and the safety of Western cartoons. It

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ and Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Are Changing the Face of Digital De-Aging

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ and Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Are Changing the Face of Digital De-Aging
Digital de-aging is Hollywood’s latest tech toy. However, the controversial CG process faces a major test next year with Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” and Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man.”

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino face off as real life mob hitman Frank Sheeran and labor union boss Jimmy Hoffa in Scorsese’s gangster biopic, as Industrial Light & Magic digitally removes decades from their appearances for a series of flashbacks. And elite 50-year-old assassin Will Smith gets stalked by his 23-year-old clone (created by Weta Digital) in Lee’s cutting edge sci-fi thriller.

Obviously, there’s more at stake here than the successful de-aging of Sean Young and Kurt Russell, or Johnny Depp in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” Robert Downey Jr. in “Captain America: Civil War,” and Michael Douglas in “Ant Man.” Any misstep into the Uncanny Valley could prove fatal. Then again,

First look at BBC’s The War of the Worlds adaptation

Filming is underway on the latest adaptation of H.G. Wells’ seminal alien invasion epic The War of the Worlds. The BBC production is currently on location in Liverpool, and now we’ve been given a first look at our Martian dodging couple, played by Rafe Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi) and Eleanor Tomlinson (Jack the Giant Slayer), looking suitably panicked on the streets of Edwardian England.

The three-part mini-series will be the first adaptation of the classic novel since Spielberg’s Tom Cruise blockbuster in 2005, and will focus on Spall and Tomlinson’s relationship, which goes against the conventions of 1900s England, only to take a back seat when the invasion begins. Joining the resistance will be Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) and Rupert Graves (Sherlock).

Throughout the years there have been so many iterations of The War of the Worlds, including the infamous 1938 radio transmission, which was read by Orson Welles,

Cloak & Dagger Is Marvel's Superhero Romeo and Juliet - and You'll Be Obsessed

Do you ever see a trailer and just know in your bones that a show is going to be special? It's how I felt about A Handmaid's Tale and Westworld and This Is Us before they premiered . . . and it's also how I've felt about Freeform's upcoming Marvel series, Cloak & Dagger, since I saw the very first sneak peek.

Shane Black’s The Predator Confirmed For 3D Release

3D was a fad, and it’s on the way out. There were a couple of films (Gravity, Life of Pi, Coraline, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and, of course, Avatar) for which it seemed absolutely crucial, but for the most part, it adds nothing to a movie other than the annoyance of having to wear silly plastic glasses.

Frankly, the novelty wore off a pretty long time ago, something borne out by the death of 3D televisions and the gradual reduction in 3D screenings for major blockbusters. All this makes the news that Shane Black’s take on the galaxy’s fiercest big game hunter – The Predator – is due to get a 3D post-conversion a bit underwhelming.

I guess the Predator’s signature triple-laser sight sweeping through the smoky night could look pretty cool in 3D, and it might make some of the action scenes a little more visceral – especially

Marvel Releases The First Fantastic Full Trailer For Cloak & Dagger

Marvel has released the first full trailer for their upcoming new series Cloak & Dagger, which is set to air on the Freeform network. We've seen a few little promos for the show over the past few months, but this trailer gives us our best look yet at what's in store for us, and I really like what I'm seeing.

Indian Actor Irrfan Khan Reveals Tumor Diagnosis
Actor and producer Irrfan Khan, known around the world for his roles in such films as “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Life of Pi” and “The Darjeeling Limited,” has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumor, a rare kind of growth that can metastasize into cancer.

One of India’s most popular and bankable stars, the 51-year-old Khan revealed the diagnosis Friday, after having divulged earlier this month that he was suffering from an unspecified disease.

“The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about,” Khan tweeted to his 2 million followers. “Learning that I have been diagnosed with NeuroEndocrine Tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope. The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes.

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]
After his sweeping victory with “There Will Be Blood” in 2007, many thought Daniel Day-Lewis had reached his zenith. What could top that performance?

In 2012 he was given the title role in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln.” Once again he immersed himself in the role, spending an entire year on research of Abraham Lincoln alone. For this performance as America’s greatest statesmen, Day-Lewis became the first and only winner of three Best Actor Academy Awards, ranking behind only Katharine Hepburn for the most acting Oscar wins in a lead category (she has four).

Watch the video above as the only living actress with three acting wins, Meryl Streep, presents an emotional Day-Lewis with the trophy at the 2013 ceremony.

Ang Lee’s ‘Gemini Man’ Starts Filming as Will Smith Shares First Set Photo and Video
Oscar-winning filmmaker Ang Lee has begun rolling cameras on his next feature. The director took some time in choosing his follow-up project to Life of Pi, for which he won the Best Director Oscar, and he settled on the war drama/satire Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which he shot entirely at High Frame Rate. The film—and its format—didn’t go over too well with audiences or critics, but now Lee is back in the director’s chair on something entirely different (as he is wont to do): an action-thriller starring Will Smith.

Ang Lee & Will Smith’s Gemini Man Cast Confirmed as Filming Begins

Ang Lee has officially begun filming his sci-fi thriller Gemini Man, with Will Smith leading the cast as an aging hitman who faces his greatest enemy: himself (sorta). The two-time Oscar winning director Lee has never been content to stick with one genre, nor has he ever been lacking for ambition as a storyteller. Following his venture into 3D with Life of Pi and his use of ultra high frame rate visuals for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Lee will be tackling a different sort of technical challenge altogether in order to bring multiple Will Smiths to life onscreen – but more on that shortly.
