Hostiles Trailer Takes Christian Bale Through the Brave Frontier
Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has released the first trailer for Hostiles, which reunites director Scott Cooper and Christian Bale after their 2013 drama Out of the Furnace. The movie is slated to hit theaters in late December, which could make this an early favorite for the 2018 Oscars, although we still have quite some time before the awards season picture starts fully coming together. Still, this drama has been tearing through the prestige festival circuit, debuting at Telluride in September before appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival, Rome Film Fest and more, as it gets ready to debut at AFI Fest in Los Angeles next week.

Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an

Independent Films Get Big Boost From Awards Season Push

Independent Films Get Big Boost From Awards Season Push
While indies have consistently played a big part in awards seasons over the past two decades, in the rapidly changing production and distribution climate, the studios have been putting a big focus on four-quadrant blockbusters with only a handful of prestige items that they view as awards hopefuls. This has led to the emergence of various newbie distributors who are all searching for their golden slice of cinematic cake.

There’s a dynamic list of films that will be competing for voter attention this year, including “Call Me by Your Name,” “Stronger,” “I, Tonya,” “Hostiles,” “Last Flag Flying,” “Lady Bird,” “The Florida Project” and “The Meyerowitz Stories.” Smaller, more challenging fare will always be on the menu, but how does one film stand out over another? And what can happen to a smaller film when it does hit Oscar gold?

Amazon Studios has some serious contenders this year with “Last Flag Flying,” “The Big Sick,” “Wonderstruck

Video: Den of Thieves – Trailer

The first trailer for crime thriller Den of Thieves has hit the web starring Gerard Butler in full beardy mode again. Check it out above.

Butler plays the head of a feared police unit tasked with taking down a group of bank robbers, led by Pablo Schreiber, as they plan to steal $120 million from the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown L.A. There’s clearly a hint of Michael Mann’s Heat (1995) about it, but it still looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Den of Thieves hits cinemas February 2nd 2018.

The ‘Den of Thieves’ Trailer Is Like ‘Heat’ With Gerard Butler
Gerard Butler, who can currently be seen fighting the weather in Geostorm, has yet another film on the horizon. In Den of Thieves, Butler is an unorthodox cop chasing after a team of robbers. It’s sort of like heat, but instead of Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, we get Gerard Butler and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Watch […]

First ‘Den of Thieves’ Trailer Aims for ‘Heat’ and Misfires

  • Collider.com
Gerard Butler's latest theatrical outing under writer/director Dean Devlin (Independence Day) for Geostorm is not off to a great start. Sure, the film has taken in over $66 million worldwide in its first week, but it might end up as a $100 million loss for the Warner Bros. / Skydance partnership. Butler, however, is moving ahead with his next questionable career choice: Den of Thieves. On the surface, the premise of this action-thriller from writer/director Christian Gudegast (London Has Fallen) is decent: Aiming to be a modern version of the classic Michael Mann film Heat, this heist / …

Guillermo Del Toro Is Making a Documentary About Director Michael Mann

Guillermo Del Toro Is Making a Documentary About Director Michael Mann
There seems to be something of a trend at the moment for directors making films about other directors. Not only has Susan Lacy directed a movie called ‘Spielberg’ about the life and work of Stephen Spielberg, there was also ‘De Palma’ directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow. Now there is news of another documentary film about a director in the works. Thierry Fremaux, the Cannes chief, was presenting a new director’s cut of ‘Heat’ recently at the Lumiere Film Festival. While doing so, he took the opportunity to announce that Guillermo del Toro is currently working on a documentary

Lumière Festival: Michael Mann, Guillermo del Toro talk Michael Mann

Lumière Festival: Michael Mann, Guillermo del Toro talk Michael Mann
Lyon, France — Director Michael Mann, a guest of the Lumière Festival, discussed his decades-long career and creative process on Sunday before introducing a restored version of “Heat” never seen before in France.

Speaking with Institut Lumière director Thierry Frémaux and fellow filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, Mann said he saw himself as an auteur, adding: “It’s not about self reflection, it’s about responsibility. Everything, good or bad, the creative choices, whether it’s an actor, the folds in the curtains, the fashion, the music, the cut, it’s all my fault, my responsibility. And that’s what’s always so exciting to me about cinema.”

Turning the discussion to the characters in Mann’s works, del Toro pointed out that his films, whether “Heat” or “The Last of the Mohicans,” often dealt with men struggling as relics in their own time as history leaves them behind. “And they seem to be holding a very intimate set of

Michael Mann Talks Holding Warner Bros. "for Ransom," Why 'Heat' Couldn't Be Made Today

Michael Mann Talks Holding Warner Bros.
Cannes Film Festival boss Thierry Fremaux’s ninth annual Lumiere Film Festival, which is dedicated to showcasing classic films, film restorations and documentaries on cinema, has been running since this weekend in his native city of Lyon, France.

An early highlight was the 4K restoration screening of Michael Mann’s modern crime classic Heat, which was preceded by a three-way conversation between Mann, Fremaux and Guillermo del Toro — who presented himself as an avid admirer of the American director, reading aloud at one point from Mann’s original annotated shooting script.

Guillermo del Toro Is Making a Documentary About Michael Mann, Which We Hope Will Be Called ‘Mann’s Labyrinth’

Guillermo del Toro Is Making a Documentary About Michael Mann, Which We Hope Will Be Called ‘Mann’s Labyrinth’
While presenting the new director’s cut of “Heat” at the Lumière Film Festival, Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux made an announcement sure to please cinephiles: Guillermo del Toro is making a documentary about Michael Mann. That’s enough to make films about well-known auteurs a trend, what with Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s “De Palma” and Susan Lacy’s “Spielberg.”

No other information is available as of yet, though the news is in keeping with del Toro’s habit of pursuing as many different movies as possible. (His list of unrealized projects is longer than his actual filmography, with everything from “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and “The Hobbit” to “At the Mountains of Madness” and “Silent Hills” leaving fans to wonder “what if?” forever.)

Del Toro has sung the “Collateral,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” and “Blackhat” director’s praises on Twitter, calling “Heat” both “a film that is part of the lexicon of the medium” and “a stark Western set in a hyperreal LA.”

Film: Heat by Michael Mann. Top three Mann. A film that is part of the lexicon of the medium. A stark Western set in a hyperreal La.

Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa Revealed in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman
Al Pacino has been spotted on the set of Martin Scorsese's The Irishman in Suffern, New York. Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci were first seen filming back at the end of September, but Pacino has not been seen until now. The 77-year old Al Pacino was filming scenes with 74-year old De Niro and the two appear to be enjoying their reunion as they can clearly be seen smiling in between takes. De Niro has worked with Pacino on 1995's Heat, 2008's Righteous Kill, and they were both in The Godfather Part II, though they never appeared on screen together.

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro have made eight movies together, one of the most fruitful and consistent creative partnerships in Hollywood history. Joe Pesci has had supporting roles in three Scorsese pictures including Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino. Shockingly, Scorsese has never worked with Pacino before, despite

Lyon’s Lumiere Festival Honors Classic Film

The 9th Lumière Festival in Lyon, France, is again bringing together some of the biggest names in world cinema, including Guillermo Del Toro, Wong Kar-wai and Michael Mann, while celebrating the history of film with some 400 screenings of international classics.

Launched in 2009 by Bertrand Tavernier and Thierry Frémaux, the respective president and director of the Institut Lumière, the event has become one of the largest international festivals of classic cinema. Last year it hosted 160,500 festivalgoers – up from 2015’s 150,000 admissions – and more than 1,000 industry professionals.

It was in Lyon where brothers Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematograph in 1895, and in keeping with the city’s cinematic tradition, the festival celebrates the history of film by presenting restored works, retrospectives, tributes and master classes.

In 2013, the festival also started what it describes as the first and only classic film market in the world, noting that the heritage cinema sector is currently expanding thanks to advancements in conservation standards

For Detective Harry Hole (Fassbender), the murder of a young woman on the first snow of the winter feels like anything but a routine homicide case in his district. From the start of the investigation, The Snowman has personally targeted him with taunts—ones that continue to accompany each new vicious murder.

Fearing an elusive serial killer long-thought dead may be active again, the detective enlists brilliant recruit Katrine Bratt (Ferguson), to help him connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new ones. Succeed, and they will

Harvey Weinstein Accused of Decades of Sexual Harassment

Harvey Weinstein Accused of Decades of Sexual Harassment
The Weinstein Company head Harvey Weinstein, a man responsible for six Best Picture Oscar-winning movies, has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment over the course of several decades. The shocking details were revealed in an expose recently released by The New York Times. In the expose, it is said that Weinstein "has reached at least eight settlements with women" over the years, with more coming forward to accuse him.

Ashley Judd, who is best known for her work on films such as Kiss the Girls, Heat and most recently Twin Peaks, worked with Harvey Weinstein over the years and came forward in the expose to detail her experiences with him. According to her account, Weinstein had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in just a robe and asked if he could give her a massage, or if she would watch him shower. In the situation,

The Best Performances in Bad Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Performances in Bad Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What is the best performance in an otherwise bad movie?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

There’s a Cult of Val (Kilmer, obviously) that I proudly belong to. Mainly it revolves around movies like “Real Genius,” “Top Secret!” and “Heat,” all excellent movies that don’t fit the parameters of this question. But you really don’t know Val until you’ve made your peace with Oliver Stone’s beyond-awful “The Doors.” The apocryphal anecdotes around Kilmer’s deep dive into Jim Morrison are insane: insisting that no one look him in the eye on set, wearing the same leather pants for months,
