R.I.P. Rutger Hauer (1944 – 2019)

It has been announced that prolific Dutch actor Rutger Hauer, perhaps best known for his roles in Blade Runner and The Hitcher, passed away aged 75 on Friday, July 19th, after a short illness.

Hauer rose to fame in his home country when he was cast as the lead in the Paul Verhoeven medieval action series Floris, and went on to collaborate with the filmmaker on the films Turkish Delight, Katie Tippel, Soldier of Orange and Spetters before making his Hollywood debut opposite Sylvester Stallone in 1981’s Nighthawks.

Hauer took on the role of Roy Batty in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner in 1982, and collaborated with Verhoeven for a final time on the director’s American debut Flesh & Blood before starring opposite C. Thomas Howell in 1986’s action horror The Hitcher and earning acclaim for his work in the Italian film The Legend of the Drinker.

Rutger Hauer Dies: ‘Blade Runner’ Bad Guy, Genre Star Was 75

  • Deadline
Rutger Hauer Dies: ‘Blade Runner’ Bad Guy, Genre Star Was 75
Rutger Hauer, the actor who played the villainous Roy Batty in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Blade Runner in a career in which he became a staple in genre films, died July 19 in his native the Netherlands after a long illness. He was 75.

A funeral was held today, Hauer’s agent Steve Kenis told Deadline.

Hauer was born January 23, 1944 in Breukelen in the Netherlands. He attended the Academy for Theater and Dance in Amsterdam before being drafted into the Royal Netherlands Army. He was part of an experimental theater troupe before being cast by Paul Verhoeven in the 1969 Dutch TV action drama Floris.

His first role stateside was in 1981 in the film Nighthawks opposite Sylvester Stallone, but it was his role as Roy Batty in the 1982 cult classic Blade Runner that put him in the spotlight and made him a formidable name amongst the cult fan community of the Ridley Scott film.

Rutger Hauer, ‘Blade Runner’ Co-Star, Dies at 75

Rutger Hauer, ‘Blade Runner’ Co-Star, Dies at 75
Rutger Hauer, the versatile Dutch leading man of the ’70s who went on star in the 1982 “Blade Runner” as Roy Batty, died July 19 at his home in the Netherlands after a short illness. He was 75.

Hauer’s agent, Steve Kenis, confirmed the news and said that Hauer’s funeral was held Wednesday.

His most cherished performance came in a film that was a resounding flop on its original release. In 1982, he portrayed the murderous yet soulful Roy Batty, leader of a gang of outlaw replicants, opposite Harrison Ford in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi noir opus “Blade Runner.” The picture became a widely influential cult favorite, and Batty proved to be Hauer’s most indelible role.

More recently, he appeared in a pair of 2005 films: as Cardinal Roark in “Sin City,” and as the corporate villain who Bruce Wayne discovers is running the Wayne Corp. in Christopher Nolan’s “Batman Begins.

‘Into the Dark’: Hulu’s Insane Holiday Horror Movie Helps Explain America’s Mascot Fixation

When the Philadelphia Flyers officially unveiled the team’s new mascot in September, the googly-eyed orange monster quickly became one of Twitter’s fiercest obsessions. Now, more than three months later, the creature known as “Gritty” has launched a thousand memes and the social media phenom shows no signs of stopping. (He just graced the cover of Artforum’s year-end issue.)

The internet’s collective interest seems driven by a series of unanswerable questions: Where did he come from? Was he born or made? Does Gritty actually ascribe to gendered pronouns? Was he born in the sewers under a hockey stadium? What is Gritty? Despite a cyclone of reporting on the mascot — some serious, some very serious — his genesis remains a thing of legend. However, the most recent installment of Hulu’s “Into the Dark” series may offer some much-needed answers.

“Pooka” is not a Gritty biopic; it was conceived,

Movie Review – The Clovehitch Killer (2018)

The Clovehitch Killer, 2018.

Directed by Duncan Skiles.

Starring Charlie Plummer, Samantha Mathis, Dylan McDermott, Madisen Beaty, Brenna Sherman, and Lance Chantiles-Wertz.

Synopsis:

A picture-perfect family is shattered when the work of a serial killer hits too close to home. Dylan McDermott stars in this chilling portrait of all-American evil.

*Note – There’s no way to write about The Clovehitch Killer without spoiling crucial details, so please, read on at your own risk. You’ve been spoiler warned.*

Duncan Skiles’ The Clovehitch Killer transforms Dylan McDermott into one of 2018’s most captivating psychopaths – a first bid towards challenging Nicolas Cage’s manic performance style. Maybe not as frenzied? McDermott doesn’t embody full “Rage Cage.” Skiles’ true crime inspired killer-thriller first questions a Christian scoutmaster’s homelife through his increasingly-paranoid son, then unleashes unholy truths like a firehose blast. No layers left unpeeled, such as recent serial slashers Summer Of 84 or
