  1. I've read a couple of books lately that got me thinking about the movie making process, and how brittle and open to complete chance it all is. The two books are What Just Happened? by Art Linson, and Easy Riders, Raging Bulls by Peter Biskind. Enormously famous books that I'm sure many here would have read. Anyway, we're very familiar with tales from Hollywood of behind-the-scenes drama and catastrophe... Francis For Coppola going apeshit in the Phillippines and emerging with Apocalypse Now, George Lucas working himself into a near nervous breakdown before unleashing Star Wars upon us, Hitchcock squirrelling away Vertigo for a decade, and countless cult (and now mainstream) classics trashed upon their original reception and consigned to box-office doom and obscurity. The thing that got to me the most was the idea of all the middle-men sticking their oars in. Yes, I know they stump up the cash and grease the wheels, but it seems pretty damn clear to me that nobody really knows what the hell they're doing. Chance is the only meaningful factor, and often they're capable of doing way more harm than good. Linson to his credit makes numerous mentions of his own suspicion that producers get by on nothing but blind luck (or lack of it). There is no formula for success, and nobody really knows for sure what might be a hit, critically or commercially. However, this doesn't stop them labouring under the illusion that they do. Case in point: The Godfather. Coppola had to constantly fight for his vision of the film, while executives hit him with complaints and doubts about the script, the setting, the casting, the daily rushes, the music. Everything. Brando is too fat. Can't hear what Brando is saying. These scenes are too dark. Pacino isn't handsome enough to play someone who's been to college(!). The film is too long. Too short. Coppola fought tooth and nail for it, the film came out, made over a hundred million dollars and won a shitload of Oscars. It seems that if you're not a Spielberg, Cameron, Kubrick, Nolan, or a clutch of basically untouchable filmmakers it's quite frankly a miracle that your film ever makes it to the screen intact. I wonder how many masterpieces have been killed in the womb by clueless studio suits. Or finish your movie and hand it over to a marketing department who singularly fail to understand it, or who flat-out dislike it, and watch them bury it without trace. At least in that instance it can be rediscovered down the line (Blade Runner, Brazil, etc.) 'The Talent' can be just as clueless, by the way. Let's not forget the many tales of on-set tantrums, hubris and battles of ego that have threatened to collapse many a movie. I know the movie industry is inextricably tied to big business, and this post is rather Hollywood-centric, but it's just sobering to think how close we tend to come to not getting our classics. A total roll of the dice. "Can't sing. Can't act. Balding. Can dance a little."
  2. After the brilliant stop-motion adaptation of Fantastic Mr. Fox, Wes Anderson is back in more familiar territory with a live action offering starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and regulars Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray. Synopsis: Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, MOONRISE KINGDOM tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl’s parents. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as the boy and girl. Trailer The trailer is unmistakably Anderson (whether that is good or bad depends entirely on you) but the film looks pretty good and it is interesting to see a few actors play against type.
  3. Not sure if this was more appropriate for ATF or here, but anyway. I'm probably not alone in having occasionally browsed various channels at dead times of the day and spotted some genuine, absolute bottom-of-the-barrel shite that once got released to almost universal disapproval. I mean, quality can be subjective, but it's not uncommon to see the likes of Catwoman and Evan Almighty on ITV2, or Meet Dave and Son of the Mask on Film 4, with the highest score on Rotten Tomatoes amongst them being a piddling 23%, which is probably the most "official" condemnation of these films as being total shit. And it probably wouldn't be so bad if these films were only on once in a blue moon, except for the fact that they're generally shown several times a week, and usually for a consecutive number of weeks as well. I mean, we have to contend with the fact that many bad films do exist, but there's not even a variety of awful films, instead just the same few in blocks of multiple airings repeated every few months for every year from now until television ceases. Without wanting to answer my own question and stunt discussion for this thread, what the fuck is going on? Is it some kind of shit package that stations need to take in order to show a big critical hit, that is not at all unrelated to shady practices of Hollywood accounting from the last century or so? Relatedly, I assume these shitty packages are why the BBC tends to stick to older/Nic Cage films which might not come with so many strings attached, unless they get some other kind of joke of a bill so they can only show LA Confidential once every two years.
  4. Synopsis: When 22-year-old Chris (Emile Hirsch) finds himself in debt to a drug lord, he hires a hit man to dispatch his mother, whose $50,000 life insurance policy benefits his sister Dottie (Juno Temple). Chris finds Joe Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a creepy, crazy Dallas cop who moonlights as a contract killer. When Chris can’t pay Joe upfront, Joe sets his sight on Dottie as collateral for the job. The contract killer and his hostage develop an unusual bond. Like from a modern-day, twisted fairy tale, “Killer Joe” Cooper becomes the prince to Dottie’s Cinderella. Based on the play by Pulitzer and Tony Award winner Tracy Letts, “Killer Joe” is a garish, proactive black comedy from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and stars Emile Hirsch, Matthew McConaughey, Juno Temple, Thomas Hayden Church, and Gina Gershon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W16OlLoB5Fw

  6. Toiling silently amongst the residents of an everyday Barcelona apartment building, doorman Cesar (Luis Tosar) harbors a dark secret: his sole desire in life is to make others unhappy. When he sets his sights on Clara (Marta Clara), one of his building's cheeriest residents, his sick need blossoms into a full-fledged obsession, and Cesar becomes determined to ruin her life by any means. I was on the lookout for a few new horror films to watch, and this stood out on one of the many 'best of horror movies of last year' lists that I read. It's not really an out-and-out horror (although one part, possibly for the first time ever, made me feel more than a little queasy), it's more of a 'stalker-horror-drama', but I found it incredibly watchable and it hooked me right until the end. It's a Spanish film and it's from one of the directors of [REC], which I also really enjoyed. The guy who plays Cesar is particularly brilliant too, and is one of the reasons the film works so well - the entire film is seen from his point of view. Surprised I couldn't find any other mention if it, either a dedicated thread or in the horror thread, so thought I'd put this out there as it's clearly easy to miss, and it's available to rent in the usual places (including iTunes and Blinkbox). So yeah, highly recommended, and a breath if fresh air among the CGI borefests of late.
  7. Just read an article about how John "Die Hard, Predator, etc" McTiernan is 2 months in to a 12-month prison sentence for perjury. I know he hasn't really done much recently, and hasn't really done anything to match his earlier days (in itself a massive shame), but I'm still not sure how this case slipped by me. His sentence seems a bit harsh, and it doesn't sound like he's in the best of shape either.
  8. I know this film has been mentioned on the forum but I'm guessing it hasn't had a dedicated topic yet. Synopsis: After watching their respective partners die, a cop and a hitman form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy. The film is directed by Walter Hill (who hopefully is back on form) and stars Stallone, Jason Momoa, Christian Slater and Sung Kang (which looks a pretty decent action cast to me). It looks pretty entertaining, we'll probably get a better idea once the inevitable redband trailer is released.
  9. Picking up directly after the first film, thus ignoring all other sequels, we get to see what happened to the family back in 1974. Synopsis: Lionsgate’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family–or so they thought. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars… Meh.
  10. A few years since the first movie, but here's the trailer for the sequel...
  11. This premiered in Toronto a couple of years ago, but is just getting a release. Looks like it might be interesting.
  12. Synopsis: Guillermo del Toro presents Mama, a supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night. Five years ago, sisters Victoria and Lilly vanished from their suburban neighborhood without a trace. Since then, their Uncle Lucas (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend, Annabel (Jessica Chastain), have been madly searching for them. But when, incredibly, the kids are found alive in a decrepit cabin, the couple wonders if the girls are the only guests they have welcomed into their home. As Annabel tries to introduce the children to a normal life, she grows convinced of an evil presence in their house. Are the sisters experiencing traumatic stress, or is a ghost coming to visit them? How did the broken girls survive those years all alone? As she answers these disturbing questions, the new mother will find that the whispers she hears at bedtime are coming from the lips of a deadly presence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxbL-65S9BI The last few Guillermo del Toro produced films have been a little disappointing (even if they were all beautifully shot) so it is hard to judge Mama based purely on the trailer. However, it has a good cast, looks pretty and has a good sense of atmosphere. It is a shame it shows a little too much but that seems to be a given these days.
  13. Synopsis: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Scott Adkins, Andrei “The Pit Bull” Arlovski and Dolph Lundgren star in UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING, which ups the ante in the UNIVERSAL SOLDIER series, giving you more hard-hitting, bloody, no-holds-barred fighting action. John (Adkins, The Expendables 2) wakes up from a coma to discover his wife and daughter were slaughtered in a brutal home invasion. Haunted by images of the attack, he vows to kill the man responsible, Luc Deveraux (Van Damme). While John tries to piece his reality back together, things get more complicated when he is pursued by a relentless UniSol (Arlovski). As John gets closer to Deveraux and the rouge army of genetically enhanced warriors led by back-from-the-dead leader Andrew Scott (Lundgren), John discovers more about himself and begins to call into question everything he believed to be true. Following the well received Regeneration we get another instalment in the Universal Soldier franchise. No doubt a red band trailer will give a better flavour of the violence than the family friendly trailer above.
  14. This trailer had me grinning like a loon throughout!
  15. Synopsis: Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King’s Speech‘s Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne, with further casting to be announced. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs–including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”–Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3uUTKOUhZU
  16. Although there were rumblings of a troubled post-production McQueen's second feature, after the stunning Hunger, has been gaining a lot of good festival press. Synopsis: In New York City, Brandon's (Michael Fassbender) carefully cultivated private life -- which allows him to indulge his sexual addiction -- is disrupted when his sister Cissy (Carey Mulligan) arrives unannounced for an indefinite stay. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arD1Hmjlqag The trailer is based on a promo created by our very own Kerraig and it looks really good, not giving anything away but clearly demonstrating the tone.
  17. Synopsis: Based on true events, “Argo” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies. I consider Affleck a solid director but neither of his films have been much to write home about (although most of the problems come from the script end). The trailer for Argo looks more promising and with a cast including Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, Kerry Bishe, and Alan Arkin the performances should be good.
  18. I've been posting little snippets about this film in the Dreamworks Animation Future Slate thread but we now have a trailer so it is time for a dedicated topic. Synopsis: Rise of the Guardians, based on the forthcoming books by William Joyce, will be released on November 21, 2012. It is directed by Peter Ramsey (Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space) and co-directed by Joyce. The film is being produced by Christina Steinberg (Bee Movie, National Treasure) and Nancy Bernstein, long-time head of Production at DreamWorks Animation. Rise of the Guardians is being written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro and Michael Siegel. It stars Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. More than a collection of the well-known childhood legends, Rise of the Guardians is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world. There are some very promising scenes in the trailer and I really like the concept so hopefully this is another film to add to the slowly growing 'Good Animated Films from Dreamworks' list.
  19. Director Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon) is back with a new animated movie from Dreamworks: Synopsis: The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever. You can find some more artwork in the Dreamworks Animation Future Slate thread Sanders' track record is fantastic so fingers crossed he can strike gold for a third time.
  20. Synopsis: In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RtCMIe9oj8 The film stars Denzel Washington and is out in November. The big news here is the fact Zemeckis has (finally) ditched making mo-capped films in favour of making a live action movie. The cast is good and the crash looks like it should be impressive but there is something about the trailer that isn't quite working for me.
  21. Over the past decade, director Chan-wook Park, has proved himself one of South Korea's great filmmakers and he, like a number of other of his countrymen, makes his English language debut next year. Synopsis: After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Here is the first footage from the film. Sadly, as it is from ET we also get an obtrusive voiceover from the presenter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4Rs72AEUfQ I assume a proper trailer will debut online quite soon.

  23. Synopsis:When ex-CIA agent Ben Logan discovers that he and his daughter have been marked for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy, a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse ensues as Logan tries to outsmart his hunters and uncover the truth. Looks like every other post-Bourne thriller but with a daughter thrown into the mix. I do like Eckhart in these types of roles though and Liana Liberato was excellent in Trust so it might not be a complete waste.
  24. Amour won the top prize at Cannes last week and is Haneke's second Palme d’Or triumph. Synopsis: Georges and Anne are in their eighties. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, who is also a musician, lives abroad with her family. One day, Anne has an attack. The couple's bond of love is severely tested. I doubt this film will sway the director's detractors but for his fans (like me) Amour is one of my most anticipated films of the year. The UK release is November 16th.
