Evolution teaser

I’ve quietly heard some very good things about Evolution, the new film from Lucile Hadžihalilovic, but even if there hadn’t been whisperings of it being terrific I would be excited to see the new film from the director of 2004’s Innocence.

It’s a shame that Innocence never really gained traction in the US, and because of that Hadžihalilovic is probably better-known here for her creative partnership with and marriage to director Gaspar Noe, of films like Enter the Void and Love. She helped write Enter the Void, but this new film will hopefully fan the flame of the directorial spark that we saw in Innocence.

This first Evolution teaser doesn’t show all that much, but I’ll take something over nothing. The film, by the way, is about “young boys who are subjected to mysterious treatments and live on an island inhabited solely by women and themselves,” which makes it sound like a companion piece to Innocence. Have a look at the Evolution footage below. Read More »

spectre TV spot

It may only be a bit of new footage, but the stuff that graces this new Spectre TV spot is a good taste of this fall’s new James Bond film, the 24th in the series. (Not counting the two “unauthorized” films, the 1967 Casino Royale and 1983’s Never Say Never Again.)

A brief TV spot like this might be the best way to get a look at the new movie, as this edit is a blast of action and intriguing looks at the characters, from Daniel Craig as Bond, to Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and the shadowy Christoph Waltz as the villain we all assume to be some version of Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

The film also features Lea Seydoux (seen on the banner image above), Monica Belucci, Dave Bautista, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Andrew Scott. Have a look at the brisk new spot after the break. Read More »

Michael Fassbender in The Snowman

Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) will direct The Snowman, from the novel by Jo Nesbo. The film, once set as a possible Martin Scorsese film, has been in development for a few years, but now it may have a bit of new momentum. That’s because Michael Fassbender is now in talks to play the lead role, a detective who follows the disappearance of one woman to discover Norway’s first serial killer.  Read More »

Netflix Is Making More ‘Black Mirror’

Black Mirror Netflix

The first two seasons of the terrific UK series Black Mirror are on Netflix, and now the streaming giant is reportedly making a deal to bring more of the show to audiences.

Netflix isn’t adding the 2014 Christmas Special (yet, sadly) but is doing something even more exciting: making new episodes. We’ve heard rumors in the past of a possible continuation of the TV series. Now a report says Netflix and series creator Charlie Brooker are in the process of making a deal to produce new Black Mirror episodes. Read More »

Partisan trailer

We just heard about Vincent Cassel joining the cast of Bourne 5, and now we’ve got a new trailer for Partisan, the creepy-looking film that features Cassel as a sort of cult leader who acts as head of a closed community and trains young urchins to do his bidding, which is often violent. This is a film I was very sad to miss at Sundance, and I’m happy to get a new look at it. Check out the new US Partisan trailer below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

High-Rise images

There’s no trailer for Ben Wheatley‘s High-Rise, seemingly in part because there’s isn’t a firm release plan announced in the UK, and no US distributor. We’re waiting eagerly for news of the film’s theatrical release. In the meantime, however, we’ve got two new High-Rise images showing Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston, and Elisabeth Moss as they appear in the film.

And while images of Hiddleston’s character that we’ve seen in the past (like the one above) made the guy look like his life is pretty together, this new shot shows him in a different place. And then there’s a shot of Irons which is a bit mysterious, even ominous. Read More »

Hannibal season 4

Hannibal is over. Here’s a hankie to dry your tears. Oh, sorry, that one has blood on it, try this one instead. But what if… Hannibal wasn’t really over? What if there could be a movie? That’s the sort of thing that cold-hearted series creator Bryan Fuller is talking about right now, and even though that’s the sort of thing he’s been talking about for a while, fans of the departed show might be happy to know that producers are still thinking about ways to continue the story.

Fuller says in an interview that “[producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a feature film,” and that while the odds are low — less than 50/50 — they’re still trying to work things out. There are even more comments out there about what a fourth season might have been, too, which will give people ideas to chew on while dreaming of that movie or new mini-series or whatever.

Note that spoilers for the end of Hannibal season three follow. Read More »

Pay the Ghost Trailer

Nicolas Cage‘s child goes missing on Halloween night despite the dad’s attentive devotion to the kid’s well-being, but the good news is it isn’t his fault. As it turns out, Cage is stuck in a story in which a whole bunch of missing kids are stolen away on Halloween night thanks to the machinery of… well, something.

Is it a supernatural force, or a more down to Earth human conspiracy that just uses the trappings of Halloween to disguise its crimes? We’re not sure, but check out the Pay the Ghost trailer below and see what you can figure out.
