Silence - Andrew Garfield

By this point in the year, we’ve already seen most of the major releases, if not in theaters then at festivals or early screenings. And a lot of the ones we haven’t watched, we’ve at least read reviews of, or seen promos for. But one highly anticipated movie that remains shrouded in mystery is Silence, Martin Scorsese‘s long-simmering drama starring Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson as Jesuit monks in 17th century Japan.

Although Paramount already has Silence locked in for a December release date, they’ve yet to release a single frame of footage to the public. That’ll surely change soon, but until then we’ve got some new Silence images to tide you over, featuring Garfield and more.  Read More »

paterson trailer

I do not envy anyone tasked with cutting trailers for Jim Jarmusch films. How do you take the work of a filmmaker known for observational storytelling, small moments, and offbeat touches and sell that you a mass audience? How do you create the illusion of a narrative for a film by a director who has the habit of rejecting narrative whenever he feels like it?

At the very least, the Paterson trailer can make use of Adam Driver‘s increasingly famous face and the fact that the film has received nearly universal praise from critics.

Amy Adams in Nocturnal Animals trailer

The new Nocturnal Animals trailer is so decadently gorgeous, you’d think it was a Tom Ford ad. And, well, technically it is — but it’s not for one of his fragrances or clothing lines. Nocturnal Animals is the new film by Ford, the fashion designer who made his feature directing debut on A Single Man.

This one stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as a divorced couple who’ve been estranged for many years. But their shared past comes rushing back to the forefront when Edward sends Susan a manuscript of his latest novel, a dark thriller about a family assaulted one night on a deserted West Texas road. Cutting between Susan’s life and the story in Edward’s novel, Ford weaves together a riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. Watch the Nocturnal Animals trailer below. Read More »

John Cleese's The Walking Dead Recap

If there’s one person who knows a lot about walking, it’s John Cleese. Therefore, while it might seem completely out of left field to have the comedian from Monty Python give us a recap of all six season of The Walking Dead, it’s actually brilliant.

This coming weekend brings the seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead, and we’ll finally get to see who Negan knocked into the next world with his signature weapon, Lucille, in the cliffhanger from last season. If you need a reminder of what’s happened over the past six years of the show, this recap is a rather entertaining way to catch up. Actually, it’s pretty entertaining even if you don’t need to catch up.

silence andrew garfield

After flying under the radar and missing the 2016 film festival scene altogether, Martin Scorsese‘s Silence finally announced a release date a few weeks ago. As expected, the latest film from one of our greatest living filmmakers has been positioned as an Oscar contender, hitting theaters in limited release on December 23, 2016. That news followed stories about the film’s supposed 195 minute running time. And that news followed a handful of stills showing off actors like Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson looking sad and desperate. But beyond that, the film has truly lived up to its title.

Still, the mere existence of a new Scorsese movie was enough to send Silence to the top of our most anticipated movies of the Fall list, so surely a new still from the film, featuring our first look at Adam Driver, qualifies as noteworthy movie news.

Billy Lynn 120 fps theaters

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit was supposed to jumpstart a cinematic revolution, as the first mainstream feature film shot and released in 48 frames per second (as opposed to the usual 24 fps). Alas, it didn’t exactly work out that way, as audiences complained about the “soap opera effect” of the higher frame rate. Nevertheless, Ang Lee decided to double down on the technology, making Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk the first movie ever shot in 120 frames per second.

But there’s a very good chance you’ll never get to see it as Lee intended. Turns out there’ll be only about half a dozen theaters in the world, including two in the U.S., that are equipped to show the movie to its exacting, cutting-edge specifications: 120 fps, 3D, 4K resolution. Which may be for the best, based on the disastrous reactions to the film’s debut screening last weekend at the New York Film Festival.  Read More »
