The very second people fell in love with Gareth Evans‘ 2011 Indonesian martial arts film, The Raid, two things became inevitable: a sequel and a remake. That’s just the way the business works. While The Raid 2 is now in theaters (and even better than the original), The Raid remake is still a bit of a mystery.
What we do know is Patrick Hughes, the director of this year’s forthcoming Expendables 3, is at the helm and in a new interview he revealed a bunch of new details. Among them is the fact the remake will follow a special DEA task force. Read his quotes below. Read More »

Eli Roth‘s new film, The Green Inferno, is ugly. That’s by design — it’s not just a horror movie, but a film made in the mold of super-shockers like Cannibal Holocaust. Though the cannibal movie has largely passed out of fashion, Roth goes as far as he can with The Green Inferno, which drops an idealistic group of college-age activists in a Peruvian jungle. There they attempt to stop rapacious corporate clear-cutting. But things go wrong, and the kids end up deep in the Amazon, facing the violent tendencies of the very natives they hoped to help. Check out the first Green Inferno trailer, which is more tease than anything else, below.

UPDATE: The coda will be in U.S. theaters as well. The story has been updated to incorporate this change.
UPDATE 2: Variety has details of the behind the scenes deal that made this happen. It is the very opposite of a far-reaching plan for a super-hero crossover. Read that info below.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is distributed by Sony. X-Men: Days of Future Past is distributed by 20th Century Fox. Under normal circumstances, that means the two films would never cross over or help each other in any way. With Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening in the UK today, however, things are a bit different. Spidey reportedly features no post-credits tease, but apparently the credits conclude with an unrelated action scene from the rival studio’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’ll do the same when it opens in the U.S. May 2. Read More »

Here’s a feature-length documentary on the art of cinematography — one of many such films, but this particular one does feature the participation of dozens of cinematographers. Actually, more than “dozens” — Jon Fauer‘s Cinematographer Style features interviews with over one hundred shooters. They include, but are hardly limited to Roger Deakins, László Kovács, Vittorio Storaro, Gordon Willis, Matthew Libatique, Bill Pope, Newton Thomas Sigel, Dante Spinotti, and John Toll.
A week ago I watched the beginning of the film and was put off — ironically, this film devoted to cinematography is hampered at the beginning by a too-literal and sometimes haphazard edit. But scan forward a bit to where the detailed talk of technique begins, and you’ll find a rich trove of material learned by years of experience on some of the most significant films. For anyone interested in how films are made — and not just how, but why — this is a great feature. Read More »

Michael C. Hall‘s days as a serial killer may be behind him, but his days as a more ordinary, accidental kind of killer are not. In the first Cold in July trailer, the former Dexter star shoots down a burglar in self-defense. This act sets off a whole series of events, starting with the dead guy’s father’s quest for revenge.
Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are) directed and Sam Shepard and Don Johnson also star. Watch the Cold in July trailer after the jump.

The best thing about the Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers are that the crew behind them actually like the movies they’re parodying. Their latest endeavor, The Wolf of Wall Street, shows plenty of reverence for director Martin Scorsese‘s hilarious yet disturbing story of excess. It points out much of what’s great about the movie while also poking fun at its pop culture relevance. It highlights co-star Matthew McConaughey beating Leonardo DiCaprio for the Oscar, the debut of Jonah Hill‘s penis, Scorsese’s love of DiCaprio, and how some audiences totally missed the point of the movie. It’s a super funny video. Watch The Wolf of Wall Street Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Part of the sales pitch for Michael Winterbottom‘s The Trip was a scene in which stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon dueled with their impersonations of Michael Caine. Now the two are back on the road again, eating and drinking and arguing, in The Trip to Italy. And they’re back at it with the Michael Caine gag, too — or at least Brydon is, as he takes the Caine role in an imagined dialogue between Caine and Roger Moore at the funeral of Death Wish director Michael Winner. We’ve got that scene, and another dryly funny clip, below. Read More »
