Doug Liman Says ‘Edge of Tomorow’ Sequel Couldn’t Have Happened Without Fans

34 minutes ago

You might have missed the exhilarating work director Doug Liman, and his stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, gave us in the summer of 2014 with “Edge of Tomorrow.” The film only earned $90 million at the box-office, and while you might have dismissed the film as a sci-fi “Groundhog Day,” you weren’t exactly wrong. However, Liman’s film was more than just a gimmick.

‘Tulip Fever’ Is A Movie That Actually Exists: Here’s The Nsfw Trailer Proof

17 hours ago

Tulip Fever” has become something of a running joke, much to the misfortune of The Weinstein Company. The distributor has kicked back and delayed the release of the period drama so often that one wonders if the film actually exists. Well, apparently it does, and will finally be opening in cinemas next week. However, TWC seems to be aware that everyone is ready to have the rug pulled out from them, so they’re convincing potential audiences to buy a ticket the only way they know how — with boobs.

Michael Almereyda Talks ‘Marjorie Prime,’ Artificial Intelligence & The Film’s Unsettling Premise

17 hours ago

Michael Almereyda‘s “Marjorie Prime” is a powerful story, set in the near future, where humanity has created artificial-intelligence that serves a very specific purpose. 86-year-old Marjorie (Lois Smith) has a new partner in her life who, oddly enough, looks like a younger version of her deceased husband (Jon Hamm), and it doesn’t take long to realize that he’s A.I. programmed to spend time with her, and reflect back the story of her life.

‘The Third Murder’ Trailer: Hirokazu Kore-eda Goes Off Brand For Legal Drama

17 hours ago

Hirokazu Kore-eda is known for a gentler kind of cinema, telling deeply human and intimate stories in pictures like “Nobody Knows,” “Hana,” “Still Walking,” “Like Father, Like Son” and “After The Storm.” However, the director is switching gears considerably and tackling the kind of movie we’d never expect from the patient, quiet filmmaker: a legal drama.

‘Beach Rats’ Is Tender & Merciless [Review]

18 hours ago

Beach Rats,” the second feature from director Eliza Hittman, is at once sexual and unsexy — a thoroughly eroticized movie meant to encourage dread. It’s a summer film set in New York City in July, focused on hormonal teenage boys as they engineer ways of killing time and entertaining themselves; they are, for the most part, douchebags out for their own gratification at the expense of decency and the contents of strangers’ wallets.

Mark Wahlberg Is 2017’s Highest Paid Actor

18 hours ago

It’s August, which means Forbes is using the traditional seasonal slowdown of traffic to drop lists of who-made-the-most-money in a variety of industries. For our interest, the movies, last week saw the release of the highest paid actress list, with the financial site using their alchemy of number crunching to place Emma Stone at the top of the heap. However, what’s most interesting is that the ten highest paid actresses would’ve even crack the top ten of the male counterparts.

‘American Horror Story: Cult’ Trailer Welcomes You To Trump’s America

19 hours ago

As has been the case with all of the previous seasons of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series “American Horror Story,” little has been released in terms of actual information regarding what’s to come. There have been plenty of cryptic teasers, hints at character romances, and, frankly, one of the most off-putting television posters I’ve seen in a long while.

What we do know is that “American Horror Story: Cult” will be set in Michigan and that the Trump-Clinton election will be used as a jumping off point for some of the horror that takes place, giving a voice to those who don’t have one “in our culture” as Murphy noted in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael K. Williams Cut From Han Solo Spinoff

19 hours ago

You come at the king, you best not miss. Michael K. Williams is goddamn presence in whatever role he’s in, but it would seem that the upcoming Han Solo spinoff will not have the man and his immense talent.

Deadline reports that the “Star Wars” spinoff film, which is currently undergoing extensive reshoots following the exit of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, has seen Williams’ role cut from the movie.

‘Riverdale’ Season 2 Trailer: Archie & The Gang Face Desperate Times

20 hours ago

When you weren’t looking, “Riverdale” became the pop-culture obsession you didn’t know you needed. Based on the Archie comics, the CW series takes place in the present and offers a subversive look at Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their circle of friends, exploring the darkness that lurks beneath the small town’s wholesome image. A worthy successor to shows like “The O.C.” and “Gossip Girl,” “Riverdale” swooped in and filled a void in the teen soap opera genre, quickly becoming a guilty pleasure you didn’t really have to feel bad about watching.

‘Strong Island’ Trailer: Sundance Winner Explores Family, Race & Murder

20 hours ago

Netflix has a few programming sweet spots, but one of their most successful are true crime stories. From “Making A Murderer” and beyond, the streaming service has cornered the market on giving audiences these tales, and they have yet another on the way with “Strong Island.”

From director Yance Ford, the film — which won a Special Jury prize at Sundance — explores the intersection of race, class and murder when one family must deal with the death of their 24 year-old son at the hands of a 19 year-old white man.

As Tom Cruise heals up from his “Mission: Impossible 6” injury, the ever busy actor has another big movie on the horizon with “American Made.” Early notices have been very positive about the Doug Liman joint (the film currently stands at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after 8 reviews), and now you can get a taste for the action drama with four clips.

Darren Aronofsky Says ‘mother!’ Is “A Cruise Missile Shooting Into A Wall”

22 hours ago

One of the most anticipated movies of the festival season, is also one of the most mysterious. Darren Aronofsky is keeping a tight seal on the plot details of “mother!,” his small scale horror starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, which is about a couple who deal with some uninvited guests. The trailers and promos haven’t been giving much away, but instead establish the atmosphere of terror that audiences will be stepping into, and that’s just the way the director wants it.

‘Little Evil’ Trailer: Adam Scott’s Stepson Is The Antichrist

23 hours ago

Back in 1990, John Ritter had to deal with his “Problem Child,” but we’d argue his character probably wouldn’t trade places with Adam Scott. The “Party Down” and “Parks & Recreation” star will have his own hellraiser to face in the upcoming “Little Evil.”

Sit Back With The Art Of The Long Take

21 August 2017 1:49 PM, PDT

The camera work of any film literally brings audiences into the action of a story. However, a risk for any cinematographer is the long take, a form in cinema that immerses the audience but runs the risk of being noticeable, removing the audience from the story to acknowledge that what they are watching is a film.

AlltimeMovies gives a brief history of the long take and produces various examples of the difficult form, noting the risks and the payoffs of the style of camera work.
