Doctor Strange delivers a dire warning in new Thor: Ragnarok trailer

17 August 2017 6:57 AM, PDT

Author: Josh Wilding

We’ve known that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange would appear in Thor: Ragnarok ever since the Sorcerer Supreme met the God of Thunder in his movie’s mid-credits scene.

Now, a Japanese trailer for Thor: Ragnarok actually shows us more of that meeting as the hero delivers a dire warning to the Asgardian about his future. Considering the fact Thor will be going up against the Goddess of Death Hela and battling The Hulk in a gladiatorial arena on Sakaar for The Grandmaster’s amusement, that’s really not all that surprising!

Rumour has it that Thor visits Earth (with Loki) to seek out Strange’s help in tracking down the banished Odin as the brothers look for a way to stop Hela from starting Ragnarok, the end of all things. This first meeting will also go some way in setting the stage for Avengers: Infinity War »

HeyUGuys head to Pimpshuei to celebrate the release of New Battles Without Honour and Humanity: The Complete Trilogy on Blu-ray

17 August 2017 5:44 AM, PDT

Author: Daniel Goodwin

Next week sees the long overdue release of Battle Royale director Kinji Fukasaku’s New Battles Without Honour and Humanity trilogy. Made in the mid-70s, Fukasaku’s sprawling crime saga is soon to be unveiled for the first time ever in the UK by Arrow Video, who have assembled Fukasaku’s three films into a sumptuously packaged Blu-ray box-set. The New Battles movies tell standalone tales of different Japanese Yakuza crime syndicates and the complex character/ business conflicts that occur within the clans.

Naturally (and thankfully) anarchic violence and bloodshed ensue amidst the criminal deliberations/ dialogue exchanges and while Fukasaku’s rugged, frenetic style festoons all three entries with exhilarating energy, they are coloured further by spirited camaraderie, anarchic gun battles and hand-cam captured car chases.

To celebrate the New Battles Blu-ray box set release, Arrow hosted a promo/screening event at Pimpshuei: a clandestine, East »

Quest Review

17 August 2017 5:35 AM, PDT

Author: Linda Marric

Eight years in the making and chartering the day to day life of a black working class family from North Philadelphia, Quest  is the brand new thought-provoking and thoroughly engaging documentary by director Jonathan Olshefski. This intimate account of race and class struggle carries with it an urgent set of sociopolitical ideas which are treated with a huge amount of tenderness, empathy and goodwill towards its subjects, not least from the director himself. Beginning at the dawn of the Obama presidency, the film allows those whose voices are never heard, to finally be part of modern political discourse, even if they claim to have never been interested in politics before.

Christopher “Quest” Rainey and his Wife Christine’a  “Ma Quest” live in one of the poorest neighbourhoods of Philadelphia, but unlike the majority of those around them, the Raineys navigate their hardship and strife with a huge degree of optimism and hope. »

“There is no future if you’re French in La” – Lambert Wilson on The Odyssey, and why he’s staying in France

17 August 2017 5:15 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Though one of France’s most acclaimed actors working today, when sitting down to speak to Lambert Wilson, you could be fooled into think he’s from Britain, such is the accent in which he speaks; articulate and pronounced, confident in the English language. And yet in spite of that the actor still harbours little desire to move to the States and make movies for there, for in Wilson’s eyes – there’s no future for French actors in Hollywood.

Promoting his new film The Odyssey, where Wilson plays the esteemed explorer and filmmaker Jacques-Yves Cousteau – we had the pleasure of meeting him in Paris earlier in the year, as he speaks in-depth about the man he is inhabiting – and how he even sought advice from the subject, beyond the grave.

When offered a role of this nature – do you hesitate, or accept straight away?

Gremlins 3 script is now completed, plot has a twisted & darker tone to the originals

17 August 2017 3:10 AM, PDT

Author: Zehra Phelan

Patti Cake$ producer, Chris Columbus has finally finished his script for the third in the Gremlins saga, Gremlins 3, revealing the next instalment will be more twisted and dark than you have seen before with a minimal use of CGI for the franchise.

Whilst on the junket circuit for Patti Cake$, Columbus revealed the details to Slashfilm stating he is proud of the way the script has ended up.

“I’m really proud of the script. It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon.”

17 August 2017 2:28 AM, PDT

Author: Zehra Phelan

Channing Tatum is to delve into the murky world of drugs cartels in the film adaptation of Melissa Del Bosque’s upcoming novel Bloodlines.

Not only is Tatum set to star in the film but he will be taking to the producer’s chair under his Free Association production company alongside Michael Parets and Fifty Shades of Grey producer Michael De Luca through Michael De Luca Productions.

Bloodlines synopsis reads: Drugs, money, cartels: this is what FBI rookie Scott Lawson expected when he was sent to the border town of Laredo, but instead, he’s desk-bound writing intelligence reports about the drug war. Then, one day, Lawson is asked to check out an anonymous tip: a horse was sold at an Oklahoma auction house for a record-topping price, and the buyer was Miguel Treviño, one of the leaders of the Zetas, Mexico’s most brutal drug cartel. »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Annabelle: Creation Helmer, David F Sandberg has confirmed on his recent promotional tour of the Conjuring spin-off that the next film to start production from the DC universe will be the comic adaptation of Shazam.

Currently, Justice League is undergoing some very expensive reshoots and the filming of Aquaman is still in full swing at DC HQ, but in a recent interview with Filmriot Sandberg was probed on which comics of Shazam/Captain Marvel he will be taking inspiration from.

Our Recent Interview with Sandberg

“I’m taking it all in. Some of those really old ones are quite fun, when he’s, like, fighting Hitler. Stuff like that. No, cause he’s been around since the 40s for, like, as long as Superman.

So there’s a lot to read and that’s also interesting because he sort of has a couple of different origin stories »

First look at the trailer for Michael Winterbottom’s On The Road

16 August 2017 11:04 AM, PDT

Author: Zehra Phelan

Michael Winterbottom’s documentary slash fiction feature hybrid has seen its first trailer drop today, and we have the first look, watch the trailer in full below.

Taking more than a decade to come to fruition, Winterbottom was first inspired to make the story centring on the tour bus experience back in 2002 after he met the band Ash in 2002 at the premiere for his film 24 Hour Party People. Thirteen years later, Winterbottom finally put the wheels in motion on On The Road choosing the touring band, Wolf Alice as the focal point for the film.

The fly-on-the-wall documentary wasn’t enough for Winterbottom who proceeded to add the actors Leah Harvey and James McArdle to add a little twist of depth with their fictional love story in the midst of the everyday life on the road of a rock band. Back in February, Winterbottom told Variety the »

Detroit hits cinemas in the UK 25th August and today we’ve been lucky enough to attend the press conference in London Town for the movie which has to be seen to be believed.

Actors John Boyega (Star Wars), Will Poulter (The Maze Runner), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones) & Jack Reynor (Free Fire) were all in attendance alongside their Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty).

There was a lovely moment in the press conference where John Boyega recounted the first time he met Will Poulter…..

Detroit tells the story of the Detroit Rebellion of 1967 which saw the Michigan National Guard join both the State and local police to attempt to quash the uprising. The second act of the movie focuses on the events at the Algiers Motel which ultimately saw three young African Americans murdered.

The Odyssey Review

16 August 2017 6:33 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Though on the surface Jérome Salle’s The Odyssey is just your archetypal biopic, of the relentlessly curious, resolutely ambitious explorer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the film’s dramatic edge and emotional core comes through the character of Philippe, his rebellious son. It’s a tried, tested and often triumphant technique within this sub-genre, to peer into the subject’s extraordinary life from an outside perspective, to allow for somebody else to steer the ship, which in the case of this great captain, makes for something of a change.

Beginning in the late 40s, Cousteau (Lambert Wilson) is enamoured by the sea. The sheer immensity of it, the ability, as he puts it, to fly, to be caught somewhere between the sun and the sea-bed, and so he manages to secure funding and begin an expedition to travel the world with a team of deep sea divers, to capture footage never seen before. »

Director Stanley Tucci on making tedium compelling in Final Portrait, and the future of independent cinema

16 August 2017 6:23 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Known primarily for his wok on-screen, Stanley Tucci returns to the director’s chair with his latest project, the Giacometti biopic Final Portrait.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented filmmaker earlier this year at the Berlin film festival, where he discusses his established interest in the aforementioned artist, portrayed here by Geoffrey Rush. He also explains how he took a film that deliberately thrives in the notion of tedium, feel so engaging – and why not taking a role in the project allowed him to focus so heavily on getting the tone right.

He also speaks about where he discovered his passion for film, and what he believes the future holds for independent cinema. Finally he speaks about fishing, and just how bad at it he is.

Was Giacometti someone you knew a lot about before starting this?

Oh my God, yeah. I knew »
