New to Netflix in March: ‘Let Me In,’ ‘Casino,’ ‘Wet Hot American Summer,’ and More
As time marches on and tedium vitae sets in more and more with each passing day, we find ourselves with fewer ways to distract ourselves from the encroaching existential malaise. But wait — what’s that you say? All three “Cruel Intentions” movies are coming to Netflix next month? Maybe it’s not so bad after all.

Yes, dear reader, the benevolent streaming gods have once again announced the titles that we’ll be able to watch from the comfort of our own fainting couches once this month gives way to the next, and it isn’t just Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe who will be keeping us company.

Some other titles that will make their way onto many viewers’ lists and maybe even be watched include “Adventureland,” “Casino,” “The Descent,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Ghostbusters,” “Jackass: Number Two” (two words: butt chug), “Let Me In,” “Moon,” “Revolutionary Road,” and “Wet Hot American Summer.

Film Review: Youth (2017) by Feng Xiaogang

Feng Xiaogang has been deemed as China’s box office king, with films like “Personal Tailor”, “Aftershock”,” Assembly” and many others that had huge success in mainland China. “Youth” follows in the same, blockbuster tactics and aesthetics, in a truly impressive production, based on a script by Geng Liu, one of the country’s most competent scriptwriters and authors.

‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Is Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year

‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Is Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year
Some new Mexican box office history has been made as the comedy “Do it Like an Hombre” followed its 68.7 million Mexican pesos ($3.89 million) opening weekend with a two weekend total of $130.3 million pesos ($7.4 million), giving it the highest Mexican movie box office total of 2017, according to comScore.

In its first weekend, including a Thursday first-day bow, the film was the country’s second-highest Mexican release ever after the 2013 smash-hit “Instructions Not Included,” which holds the top spot, though off a Thursday rather than Friday opening. 2016’s “Que Culpe Tiene el Nino”? earned a three-day 65.6 million pesos ($3.7 million), according to comScore.

The recent success of local hits in Mexico has helped in recent years to justify a massive growth in the number of theaters across the country. It may also suggest a shift away from the near absolute choke-hold that Hollywood blockbusters, especially animated movies, have held on the region’s box offices for years. At

Nicolas Lopez’s ‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Smashes 2017 Mexican Movie Records

Nicolas Lopez’s ‘Do It Like an Hombre’ Smashes 2017 Mexican Movie Records
Having directed Chilean smash hit “Sin Filtro,” Nicolás Lopez looks like he has done it again. But in a far bigger market than his native Chile and with a Spanish-language comedy which, distributed by Pantelion and starring Mauricio Ochmann (“El Chema”) and Aislinn Derbez (“Win It All”), has U.S. potential.

Bowing Aug.10 in Mexico, Lopez’s first Mexican movie as a director, “Hazlo como Hombre” (“Do It Like an Hombre”), which Pantelion releases Sept. 1 in the U.S., opened No. 1 on Thursday, punching $591,537 at the Mexican box office, over double the biggest U.S. bow, “Baby Driver” ($239,565).

That’s also getting on for double the first-day box office trawl for “Que Culpa Tiene el Niño?” – Mexico’s biggest local hit of 2016, which went on to earn $14.4 million in Mexico.

These are just opening night figures. But they do raise the question of how much “Do It Like an Hombre” could gross not just in Mexico but

SXSW 2017 Interview: Writer / Director Aaron Burns Discusses the Parental Horrors of Madre

While Madre may only be his second feature film to date, writer/director Aaron Burns is no stranger to the world of horror, or indie filmmaking for that matter. His credits include providing visual effects expertise on projects like Planet Terror, Machete, and The Green Inferno (on which he also was in charge of second unit photography and even played the character of Jonah, who was eaten by cannibals in a glorious frenzy of brutality), and he has also worked as a camera operator on Aftershock and played supporting roles in both The Stranger and Knock Knock.

While at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival, Daily Dead caught up with Burns to talk about his disturbing take on parental paranoia. The filmmaker discussed what inspired his latest project, how he wanted to tap into the true horror of Madre’s story—rather than rely on copious amounts of gore—and the importance of trusting female instincts,

Joss Whedon Says “Marvel Has Been More Successful Systematically” Than DC, Wants To Direct ‘Star Wars’ Movie, More

It’s been over a year since Joss Whedon delivered “Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” a movie he has a complicated relationship with, and in the time since, he’s been putting his head down and writing a new script, described as “historical fiction,” which has shades of Eli Roth‘s “Aftershock.” But would Whedon ever go back to blockbuster land, a world where he had to deal with such intensive fanboys trolling, he quit Twitter?

‘Jackie,’ ‘Blind Christ’ Make Big Splashes for Burgeoning Chilean Film Business

‘Jackie,’ ‘Blind Christ’ Make Big Splashes for Burgeoning Chilean Film Business
Chile’s unprecedented dual presence in the Venice Film Festival’s official competition, and presence at Toronto, can only attest to the wealth and breadth of its burgeoning cinematic talent.

Venice’s and Toronto’s official lineup included “Jackie,” the first English-language pic from helmer Pablo Larrain, whose pics “No” and “The Club” repped Chile in the past two consecutive years at the Oscars, and whose recent “Neruda” preemed at Cannes and also reps Chile at the upcoming Oscars. The Lido fest also featured a relatively unknown Chile-born talent, Christopher Murray, and his sophomore pic, “The Blind Christ.”

Darren Aronofsky’s search for someone to direct the long-gestating “Jackie” project ended when he saw Larrain’s Berlinale grand jury prizewinner “The Club” while presiding over the Berlin festival jury last year. Natalie Portman, who plays the titular role of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy during the first four days after the assassination of her husband,

Knock, Knock (2015) review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott

Knock, Knock

Written by Eli Roth, Nicolas Lopez, Guillermo Amoedo

Directed by: Eli Roth

Cast: Keanu Reeves (Evan), Lorenza Izzo (Genesis), Ana de Armas (Bell), Colleen Camp (Vivian)

I’ve been watching a lot of Eli Roth’s most current stuff here lately. He’s definitely built a new network of actors and associates, and has been involved himself as actor, producer, and director in films like “The Stranger”, “The Green Inferno”, and “Aftershock”. All have interesting premises, and how well they are executed is left to the discretion of the viewer.

Knock, Knock is his most mainstream project due to the high profile casting of Keanu Reeves. It’s quite a pairing of two film professionals that elicit reactions of either fervent disdain or a passionate defense of their misunderstood talents. I’m neutral as I think most should be. I don’t like everything they do,

Nicolas Lopez’s Netflix Movie ‘No Filter’ Beats ‘Force Awakens’ in Chile

Nicolas Lopez’s Netflix Movie ‘No Filter’ Beats ‘Force Awakens’ in Chile
Netflix-financed “Sin Flitro” (No Filter”), the latest movie from Eli Roth’s Chilewood production-hub partner Nicolas Lopez, has bested “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at the Chilean box office, punching nearly double “Force’s” admissions on “No Filter’s” first day at Chilean theaters and ending up top of Chilean B.O. charts.

Netflix will bow “No Filter” in May. Opening Thursday in Chile, it sold nearly 30,000 tickets. “Force,” entering its fourth week and with a $6.0 million box office through Jan 3 off a Dec. 17 bow, punched 15,582 admissions.

Local box office hits are still relatively rare in Chile, though “Stefan vs. Kramer” scored $12.0 million for Fox in 2012 and “Citizen Kramer” $5.1 million a year later. Only these two “Kramers” have scored higher openings than “No Filter” in the history of Chilean cinema. “Filter” sold out sessions.
