The Avenging Silence

Drive and Only God Forgives director Nicolas Winding Refn has just shot his next film, The Neon Demon, in Los Angeles. That one will be going into post-production, with a bunch of VFX to complete along with all the other aspects of post-production.

While Refn is still in LA, he dedicated an evening to the LP release of the soundtrack to Bronson. Before that event kicked off, Refn gave a little interview in which he teased possible details of a Tokyo-set spy film called The Avenging Silence. Read More »

paper towns trailer 2

Fox 2000 Pictures has released a new trailer for Paper Towns, the new mystery romantic drama following a young man and his friends who go on the “road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.” I’m mainly interested in this film because it was written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, the screenwriters behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now. I also enjoyed director Jake Schreier‘s first feature Robot & Frank when I caught it at Sundance a few years back.

Prison Break return

Back in 2005, Fox introduced a fantastic show called Prison Break. It was about a genius younger brother who purposelygoes to prison so he can break his older brother out. Spoiler alert, but the first season ended with them actually getting out of prison. And though they eventually did go back, once the “prison break” was over, Prison Break lost most of its luster.

Now the show that originally should have been a miniseries will be one. Fox is currently looking to bring Prison Break back in a similar way to 24: Die Another Day, as a limited series with original actors Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell returning. There aren’t a lot more details beyond that, but read them below. Read More »

Forty years ago this weekend, no one knew movie history was about about to change. The date was June 1, 1975. A movie called Jaws, by the young filmmaker Steven Spielberg, was about to be released. 260 million dollars later, the era of the blockbuster had been born.

To celebrate this landmark anniversary, Fathom Events is teaming with Universal Pictures to re-release Jaws in select theaters for two days only, Sunday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 24. Below, read about the Jaws anniversary re-release. Read More »

Twin Peaks season three episode count

Twin Peaks isn’t just back — there’s more of it coming than anyone expected.

The return of Twin Peaks has already become a saga, with Showtime setting up a nine-episode third season to air in 2016, with David Lynch directing all episodes and co-writing with Twin Peaks co-creator Mark Frost. Then Lynch bailed on the series, reportedly over budget and deal issues. But Showtime worked things out with Lynch, and the director returned, just in time for Showtime to announce the third season had expanded from its original nine-episode order.

We didn’t know much more than that. What would be the final Twin Peaks season three episode count? And who else will return to the series now that Lynch is fully on board? During a convention appearance, Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn revealed some details. Notably, that the series order has doubled, and there’s a suggestion that Angelo Badalamenti, the musical voice of the show, is also coming back. Read More »

True Detective trailer

The first True Detective season two trailer was all slow shots of sad faces. This second one has a lot more character — we hear from a few of the major players, including the bad guy played by Vince Vaughn, and the cops played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. The real standout so far looks to be McAdams, who comes off like a total badass in this footage. Check out the new True Detective trailer below. Read More »

Christoph Waltz directing

Christoph Waltz seemed to come out of nowhere years ago when Quentin Tarantino cast him in the 2009 release Inglorious Basterds, though the actor had actually been working for many years prior to that. Since then, however, Waltz has won two Oscars (for Basterds, and for Django Unchained) and established himself as a major player in both studio and indie films. Now he’s going to direct, and for his first film Waltz is taking on a strange true crime story.  Read More »
