Engrossing Doc ‘A River Below’ Dives In Search Of Dying Amazon River Dolphins [Tribeca Review]

13 hours ago

In the first 15 minutes of the documentary “A River Below,” director Mark Grieco introduces two unforgettable characters and one mystery. First up is Fernando Trujillo, a conservationist who’s spent years leading a team that tracks the population of Amazon river dolphins—a.k.a. “pink dolphins” or “botos”—in order to warn Brazilians that careless native fisherman are endangering one of their country’s most beloved native animals. Trujillo is one of many conscientious scientists who work behind the scenes to collect data, file reports, and safeguard the world’s natural resources.

When Fantasies Kill: The Murderous Madness Of An Alt-Right Paranoiac In ‘A Gray State’ [Tribeca Review]

14 hours ago

Not long into Erik Nelson’s tightly-packed and disturbing documentary “A Gray State,” discussing a December 2015 murder-suicide in a Minneapolis suburb that left filmmaker David Crowley, his wife Komel, and their five-year-old daughter Raniya dead, local journalist Cory Zurowski noted that it was “catnip for conspiracy theorists.” Why? Because for several years, Crowley had been trying to make a feature film called “Gray State” that looked like something cooked up by a roomful of Alex Jones fans after a three-day Red Bull and Googling marathon.

New Details Disclosed On The Tricked-Out, Tony Stark-Made Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Costume

15 hours ago

It wouldn’t be an inaccurate statement to say the world’s most popular superhero was in limbo after Sony’s “Amazing Spider-Man” franchise reboot crashed and burned in 2014. While critics and fans have been reassured of Marvel Studios’ handling of Spider-Man due to Tom Holland’s (“The Impossible”) scene-stealing, plucky presence in “Captain America: Civil War” there has been enormous pressure on Marvel and Sony to get Spider-Man right this time.

‘The Reagan Show’ Is A Comedic But Sober Documentary About Politics As Blooper Reel [Tribeca Review]

16 hours ago

There’s a reason that Ronald Reagan is still called “The Great Communicator” all these years later, and it’s all on screen in Sierra Pettengill and Pacho Velez’s documentary “The Reagan Show,” making its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Eschewing both the cozily intimate style of modern political portraits like “Mitt” or the hard-hitting reportorial data crunch of a “Frontline” episode, Pettengill and Velez instead mine the thousands of hours of footage from the time period.

‘Deadpool 2’ & Two More ‘X-Men’ Films Dated For 2018

18 hours ago

Looks like someone was logging some overtime this weekend. 20th Century Fox has been busy this morning announcing future dates for their 2018 roster. First it was Four (yes, four) “Avatar” films starting in 2020 (about five years or so behind schedule), now the studio has revealed the near future of its “X-Men” universe. While all dates were previously just “Untitled Fox / Marvel Film” placeholders, each one has been revealed.

Four James Cameron ‘Avatar’ Films Have Been Dated Starting 2020 Through 2025

23 hours ago

Avatar” has become the Nickelback or Creed of movies; no one wants to admit they liked the movie, meanwhile reviews don’t lie (generally positive with an 83% Rt score), and the box office numbers are obviously an apex that may never be beat (the highest grossing film of all time at $2.7 billion). The other knock on the James Cameron-directed 3D spectacle is that it is not at all culturally influential.

Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio & Robert De Niro May Reteam For ‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’

21 April 2017 4:07 PM, PDT

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are obviously a little attached at the hip. They’ve made five movies together — “Gangs of New York,“ “The Aviator,” “The Departed,” “Shutter Island” and “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and the short, “The Audition” — but it feels like any time a Scorsese project is announced, DiCaprio’s name is not far behind.

‘Silicon Valley’ Season 4 Seems Like A Prudent And Partially Funny Investment [Review]

21 April 2017 3:12 PM, PDT

When we last left our merry band of tech innovators, programmers and start up investors the infamous company Pied Piper had taken yet another dramatic pivot. The algorithm company CEO and founder Richard (Thomas Middleditch) had once hoped would revolutionize video compression was pushed to the side for an increasingly popular video chat application developed by Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani). And, if you’ve ever worked even tangentially close to the tech sector it made a lot of sense and in a way that has always been the biggest strength of Mike Judge’s “Silicon Valley.”

Adjust Your Tracking Has A Blast With ‘Free Fire,’ Talks New David Lynch Doc ‘The Art Life’ [Podcast]

21 April 2017 2:44 PM, PDT

On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and I open with more talk of repertory cinema, in this case the recent 4K restoration of “Donnie Darko” currently playing in some arthouses around the country (and also getting a gorgeous new blu-ray release from Arrow Video). From there, I recommend you see “The Lost City Of Z” in a theater, and soon (also check out Rodrigo’s great interview with director James Gray on his new podcast).

‘The Promise’ Director Claims Genocide Deniers Have Tanked His Movie’s IMDb Score

21 April 2017 1:50 PM, PDT

Something strange is happening with “The Promise” on IMDb. As of right now, 50.8% (65.6k) of all reviews for Terry George‘s film about the Armenian Genocide give it a 10/10, while 47.8% (61.7k) of all reviews stand at 1/10. Even among the IMDb user ratings, which are notoriously reactive and negatively skewed, it seems absolutely unfathomable that only 1.4% of all viewers would give it a review between 2/10 and 9/10.

Robert Pattinson Announces An Upcoming Project With ‘Christine’ Director Antonio Campos

21 April 2017 1:15 PM, PDT

No career transitions have been as surprising — and as welcome — as the pivot of ‘Twilight‘ stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart from blockbuster jokes to the darlings of the independent film world. Both actors having shed their skin and proven themselves to be versatile and surprisingly deep performers, Pattinson in particular has shown a surprising affinity for secondary roles. His performance in “The Lost City of Z,” for example, buries the actor behind an enormous beard and features him onscreen for a surprisingly small percentage of the film’s long running time.

Sofia Coppola Describes Nicole Kidman As A ‘Virtuoso’ On The Set Of ‘The Beguiled’

21 April 2017 12:47 PM, PDT

With the exception of her contributions to “A Very Murray Christmas” on Netflix, we’ve only been treated to three Sofia Coppola movies since her Academy Award-nominated “Lost In Translation.” That’s just not enough Coppola in our lives. For comparison’s sake, Joe Swanberg released six movies in 2011 alone; this isn’t a knock on Swanberg so much as it is an acknowledgement that whatever Hollywood executives are doing that prevents Coppola from making six movies a year, they need to fix it yesterday.

Road Pictures Is Producing a Chinese Remake Of ‘Run Lola Run’

21 April 2017 12:13 PM, PDT

It’s been nearly 20 years since Tom Tykwer‘s heart-pounding “Run Lola Run” took the film scene by storm, culminating in an audience award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and a slew of trophies at 1999’s German Film Awards — including Outstanding Feature Film, Best Direction, and German Film of the Year. And now, in a move that seems destined to coincide with the film’s 20th anniversary, Chinese production company Road Pictures has announced that they’ve secured the rights to the film and plan to make a Mandarin-language remake of the film.

Marvel’s ‘Avengers 4’ Won’t Shoot Alongside ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ May End the Modern MCU

21 April 2017 11:40 AM, PDT

Kevin Feige has been particularly chatty as of late. Marvel‘s movie boss has taken on a string of interviews in the past few weeks, taking the opportunity to provide updates on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including some particularly juicy comments about the ‘Avengers‘ movies and where the Marvel universe as a whole might head at the conclusion of Phase 3. And while that might be the more enticing storyline, let’s begin with the (relatively) smaller piece of news.

Michael Mann’s ‘Heat’ Is Returning To Theaters For One Night Only

21 April 2017 10:56 AM, PDT

If you’ve never seen Michael Mann‘s “Heat” on the big screen, you’re missing out; the film’s signature gunfights and neon-soaked Los Angeles were always meant to tower over audiences. There’s still time to fix that, though: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and the Alamo Drafthouse have partnered on a one-night-only screening of Mann’s crime classic on Tuesday, May 2, including a special Q&A with Mann that will be broadcast from the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s ‘Fast and the Furious’ Characters Are Getting Their Own Movie

21 April 2017 10:18 AM, PDT

By far, the most surprising strength of “The Fate of the Furious” was the off-the-chart chemistry between professional tough guys Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson. Not only did the two men steal every scene they appeared in together – allegedly causing Vin Diesel to force Universal Pictures to remove their post-credits stinger clip from the movie – they also seemed to hint at a relationship that could expand beyond the main stories of the ‘Fast and the Furious‘ franchise.

Marvel Hints At A Different ‘Guardians’ Roster In ‘Vol. 3,’ James Gunn’s Expanding Role

It’s Friday, which means one last chance to cram as many “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2“ rumors into the calendar as humanly possible. With critics and select fans getting a first look at the film this past week, and Entertainment Weekly sharing some big updates on the movie in its Summer Movie Preview, the floodgates have opened on talking about James Gunn‘s highly anticipated sequel.

Crime Heads South In This New Photo From Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Comedy ‘Logan Lucky’

21 April 2017 8:51 AM, PDT

While Steven Soderbergh is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the type of filmmaker he would like to be — causing him to move suddenly and irregularly between blockbuster, independent, and micro-budget projects — the one consistent throughout his career has been his knack for films about criminals. From the “Ocean’s 11” franchise to his underseen adaptation of Elmore Leonard‘s “Out of Sight,” Soderbergh is arguably at his best when making films about people who find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

The Movies That Changed My Life: ‘Tramps’ Director Adam Leon

21 April 2017 8:45 AM, PDT

With only two feature films under his belt to date, writer/director Adam Leon has made a big noise by using very little. His breakout film, “Gimme The Loot,” was fresh, exciting, and low-key caper film that captured the attention of SXSW, Cannes, and beyond. For his followup, Leon tells another intimate, authentic New York City story with “Tramps.” Premiering last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, it may not have had glitzy A-list stars, but the crowd-pleasing charmer sparked a small bidding war, with streaming titans Netflix coming out on top.
