Here's Everything We Know About Kiernan Shipka's New Beau, Charlie Oldman

Kiernan Shipka is officially off the market, and if you haven't heard of her boyfriend, then you've at least heard of his dad. The 19-year-old Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star sparked rumors of a relationship earlier this Spring when she was spotted hanging out with 20-year-old Charlie Oldman. Then, a day after Kiernan accompanied Charlie as his date to the premiere of the documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Los Angeles, Charlie posted a cute selfie of the two on his Instagram captioned with a heart emoji, leaving no question of their relationship status. Though the actress claimed back in November that she was too busy to date, it seems as though she couldn't resist Charlie's charm (and his seriously cool tattoos).

Who's Charlie famous dad, you ask? Charlie is the son of legendary actor Gary Oldman,

‘Palo Alto’ Director Gia Coppola Adds Flair to Elle Fanning Music Video — Exclusive
Since making her promising directorial debut “Palo Alto” in 2014, Gia Coppola has been slow to release a follow-up. While her next feature is still in development, Coppola stepped back behind the camera for a simple yet stylish music video, debuting exclusively on IndieWire. A member of one of the royal families of cinema, Coppola went old school for the short film, shooting in black-and-white and working with one of her aunt Sofia’s favorite actresses: Elle Fanning.

The video is being released concurrently with Fanning’s latest film, “Teen Spirit,” directed by Max Minghella. The song, “Little Bird,” was written by Annie Lennox and sung by Fanning herself.

In “Teen Spirit,” Fanning plays Violet, “a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing,” according to the film’s press release. “With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity,

Lords of Chaos

Writer/director (and former Bathory drummer) Jonas Åkerlund’s new black metal murder dramedy Lords of Chaos has really stuck with this critic since I first saw it two weeks ago. The controversial true crime tale has plenty to say about the lives of fringe musicians, the dangers of toxic masculinity and groupthink, and the tenuous nature of friendships amidst creative partnerships — all wrapped up in an irresistible tragicomic package. Chaos is currently available on demand and in limited theatrical release stateside.

Lords of Chaos, adapted from the 1998 nonfiction book Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground from authors Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind, unpacks an insane true story that has become legend in extreme metal lore: the church-burning, murder- and suicide-filled misadventures of a group of angry young Norwegian men that nicknamed themselves “The Black Circle.”

‘Lords of Chaos’ Review: Dir. Jonas Åkerlund (2019)

Lords of Chaos review: Get ready for an unsettling watch as Norwegian Black Metal’s dark history gets an airing in this polarising new feature film from Jonas Åkerlund.

Arrow Films

Based on truth, lies, and what really happened. These words make up the opening text to Lords of Chaos. They’re very similar to the opening statement in I, Tonya, but that is where the similarities end. Where I, Tonya had a very tongue-in-cheek, knowing vibe, Lords of Chaos appears much more serious. Our story tells of events that happened with black metal band Mayhem in Norway during the late eighties and early nineties.

The truth is that one of the band’s lead singers, Pelle Olmin, better known as Dead, committed suicide and several years later guitarist Øystein Aarseth was murdered by another former band member, Varg Vikernes. The group were also linked to a spate of violent crimes and church arson attacks.

Bo Report: ‘Stan & Ollie’ not so jolly as ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ wins again

Stan & Ollie

British audiences embraced Stan & Ollie, not least because the charming biopic of comic duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy is set in the UK, while Us moviegoers were far less enthused.

Australians’ sentiments towards the comedic drama starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly seem somewhere in the middle, judging by its fourth-ranked opening last weekend.

Fox’s Alita: Battle Angel easily retained top spot in its second weekend but is not performing at the level here or internationally which the studio needs to recoup the $US170 million production budget and hefty marketing costs.

Mindblowing Films’ Bollywood adventure comedy Total Dhamaal began brightly but there were minimal contributions from the other openers including Umbrella’s Lords of Chaos and Madman Entertainment’s Vox Lux.

Umbrella launched Nicholas Wrathall’s feature documentary Undermined: Tales From The Kimberley on limited sessions at eight cinemas, fetching a modest $19,000 including previews.

‘Lords of Chaos’ Review: Black Metal Biopic Should Be Burned at the Cross

Nearly every travel guide of Norway bears at least a passing reference to the wave of church burnings that swept the country in the early Nineties. Frommer’s even names one of the arsonists, Varg Vikernes, adding that he was a Satanist who went to jail for murder. To many Norwegians, Vikernes is the country’s Charles Manson, the ultimate boogieman.

That’s because he was at the center of the nation’s most terrifying wave of homegrown terrorism, which filmmaker Jonas Åkerlund (Spun) has dramatized in his new movie,

‘Lords of Chaos’ Review: This Black Metal Drama Is Fittingly Grim and True

  • Indiewire
Black metal has never been a purely musical phenomenon, nor was it meant to be. Even the most ardent of Mayhem, Darkthrone, or Gorgoroth fans would concede that its practitioners aren’t virtuosos so much as vessels for an anti-establishment worldview that demonizes Christianity the way punk rock savaged Reagan and Thatcher. If you know anything at all about the genre, it probably isn’t that “Transilvanian Hunger” is a pretty solid album — it’s that, back in the early ‘90s, a group of disaffected Norwegians earned notoriety by burning down centuries-old churches and committing grisly murders.

So don’t be surprised that “Lords of Chaos” offers less insight into Mayhem’s songwriting process than it does into the relationship between Øystein Aarseth and Varg Vikernes (Emory Cohen). The friends-turned-rivals, who performed in the foundational band Mayhem together, have emerged as the most infamous figures from that era — especially because

Movie Review – Lords of Chaos (2018)

Lords of Chaos, 2018.

Directed by Jonas Åkerlund.

Starring Rory Culkin, Emory Cohen, Jack Kilmer, Valter Skarsgård and Sky Ferreira.

Synopsis:

A teenager’s quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the early 1990s results in a very violent outcome.

The black metal community can appear, to onlookers, a quasi-circus act. A subculture of disgruntled teenagers and young adults donning the corpse paint, obsess over the dark arts and make “scary” music videos in snowy, Scandinavian forests. The po-faced delivery can be odd. One need only look at Gahhls’s response in the documentary Heavy Metal: A Headbangers Journey to understand how po-faced the whole thing is.

However, to those who are within the community, and for those who were around when the Mayhem explosion happened, many know that the showboating Satan worshippers take much of this very seriously. What’s interesting about documentaries like Until the Light Takes Us

Lords of Chaos Review: A Bloody and Twisted Tale of Norwegian Death Metal

Lords of Chaos Review: A Bloody and Twisted Tale of Norwegian Death Metal
Lords of Chaos is the bloody and twisted true story of the Norwegian death metal band, Mayhem. What started as male teen angst devolves into sadistic murder. Sociopaths with little regard for their homogeneous Christian upbringing escalate their rhetoric to violence. It is a cautionary tale of toxic masculinity. The film is unsparing in its brutality. It shows the red line crossed between macho talk and horrific actions. Lords of Chaos does muddy the message with constant voice over narration. It's a poor stylistic choice that gets old quickly.

Lords of Chaos opens in late eighties Norway. Rory Culkin stars as &#216ystein Aarseth, a death metal guitarist with dreams of grandeur. He lives a comfortable life with his parents and sister. Jamming in the family basement while his mother makes lunch. He despises his upbringing, spouting satanic jargon and anti-establishment themes. It's all for show, asking his sister's opinion if

Review: ‘Lords of Chaos’ Blends Norwegian Black Metal and Murder

Talk to “true” Norwegian black metal fans and they’ll tell you Michael Moynihan and Didrik Søderlind’s book about the scene’s origins and criminality is a bunch of baloney (but in much harsher words). It’s interesting because the facts behind a series of church burnings, the suicide of a lead singer, and two subsequently high profile murders are indisputable. Those who were tried and found guilty before serving their time in prison don’t dispute the acts themselves, but merely the way in which they are presented. And who are we to defy them? These are convicted monsters that continue making music today for a rabid fan-base reveling in their no-holds-barred demonic creed. They’ve got their reputations to uphold and this story works to question their mettle let alone sanity.

So they of course hate the idea of director Jonas Åkerlund’s adaptation of said book alongside co-writer Dennis Magnusson.
