Briefly: We’ll get a second trailer for Wally Pfister‘s first directorial effort, Transcendence, later this week. For now you can check out the first poster for the film, which looks like the sort of image that might have decorated a paperback copy of a William Gibson novel twenty years ago, or maybe a cover of Wired. It’s essentially a graphic interpretation of that creepy image above, in which Johnny Depp‘s head is wired up for some serious computer interface. Read More »

2015 is only a year away but you can have everyone’s favorite 2015 movie on your wall starting this Friday. Laurent Durieux, he of that excellent Die Hard poster, among others, is having his first solo art show at the Mondo Gallery in Austin TX on February 7. We’re delighted to debut one of the many pieces in the show: Back to the Future Part II.
We already knew Durieux, who flew in from Belgium for the show, did The Birds, Forbidden Planet and the first Back to the Future for the show (though that has yet to be revealed) but with this one image, he truly captures the time, place and tone of Robert Zemeckis‘ hit 1989 sequel. Check out both versions of the poster below. Read More »
One of my most anticipated films of the year is the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, about the effort by Alejandro Jodorowsky (The Holy Mountain, El Topo) to film Frank Herbert’s titanic novel. 2014 will turn out to be a great year for fans of Jodorowsky, as we get not only that doc, but a new film from the director. It’s Jodorowsky’s first film in 23 years, and so The Dance of Reality is kind of a big deal.
The film was shot in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where Jodorowsky was born in 1929. The film is an autobiographical vision of sorts, as it blends “his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, reflecting Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.”
The film premiered at Cannes last year, and will soon play at SXSW, where the Chilean director will also do a Q&A. Yesterday it was announced that ABKCO Films will release the new movie in theaters in New York and LA on May 23, and it will expand to more theaters afterward.
Below, you can see the exclusive debut of the theatrical poster, and check out the trailer. Read More »
I have a recommendation for all you Star Wars fans out there. As you patiently wait for news of new movies, fill the time by looking at the awesome way Disney and Lucasfilm are promoting the upcoming cartoon series Star Wars Rebels. For the past few months, slivers of information have been continually released about the project, each giving fans just enough to enjoy and digest without spoiling anything big.
We know the identity of the villain, we know a new droid, we’ve seen concept art and much more. Now, six images promoting Imperial propaganda have been released, each showing ways the Empire is recruiting people to their cause between the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Check them out below. Read More »
Grand Piano was one of the most entertaining films I saw in 2013 — its premiere screening at Fantastic Fest last year had the crowd roaring with delight, and was the thing everyone talked about for the rest of the fest.
Coming from director Eugenio Mira, who did the music for Timecrimes; star Elijah Wood; and screenwriter Damien Chazelle (whose directorial debut Whiplash was just a big Sundance hit) the film is a technical tour de force that puts Wood in the hot seat as a killer targets him during a tense musical performance. The film has a delightfully composed visual style which indulges in De Palma-esque touches to manipulate suspense as the action unfolds. The underlying concept may be somewhat silly, but the execution is excellent.
The film is on iTunes and VOD now, and we’ve got an exclusive alternate poster below, along with a behind the scenes featurette and a clip. Check it all out, and revisit the trailer, after the break. Read More »
Last year director Denis Villeneuve and actor Jake Gyllenhaal finished two films together. One of them, Prisoners, hit in the fall and was notable for the incredible cinematography of Roger Deakins. The other played TIFF and will be released in a limited theatrical run on March 15. That one is Enemy, and it is said to be the better of the two movies.
Gyllenhall plays a paranoid teacher who begins to think he has found his own doppelgänger, and his efforts to learn more about the person take him to dark places. The film is based on the novel of the same name by José Saramago, and features actors such as Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini and Sarah Gadon in supporting roles.
A new poster for the film has been released, and it’s a great classic design that relies on a simple graphic illustration rather than a photo-collage mishmash of big heads and sparks. Check it out below. Read More »
