Breathe trailer 2

Andy Serkis is best known for his work in front of the camera, imbuing visual effects-driven characters like Gollum and Caesar with weight and inner life using performance capture technology. But he has some experience behind the camera as well, having directed the second unit of all three of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit films.

Now the actor is making his official directorial debut with Breathe, an inspiring true story starring Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Claire Foy (The Crown) as a couple who must overcome incredible odds just to regain the semblance of a normal life together after one of them contracts polio. The movie’s second trailer has arrived, so check it out below and see what you think about Serkis’s potential as a director.

joker origin movie

A few days ago, the news broke that Warner Bros. is developing a movie that would explore the origin story for The Joker. And while this Todd Phillips-drected, Martin Scorsese-produced project (!)  sounds like a profoundly bad idea on many levels, it got the /Film staff talking. Who would you cast as the young version of Batman’s arch-nemesis? And more specifically, who would you cast as the young Joker in a movie that will be a standalone film unconnected to the larger DCEU and therefore untethered to Jared Leto’s performance in Suicide Squad?

So we put our brains together and came up with 14 names. These are not the actors that we think would actually be cast as a young Joker. Instead, these are the actors we’d like to see cast as a young Joker. After all, if they’re going to make this movie, they might as well cast someone interesting in the lead.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Honest Trailer

With Spider-Man: Homecoming on its way to theaters this weekend, with sneak preview screenings beginning around the United States tonight, let’s remind ourselves of the straw that broke the camel’s back at Sony Pictures and got Spider-Man controlled by Marvel Studios again.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 attempted to expand the world of Spider-Man into a cinematic universe that would have brought the Sinister Six into New York and expand the mythology of Peter Parker’s parents’ life as spies. But all it did was make a big mess of things by being on par with Batman & Robin, and now the folks at Honest Trailers give the sequel the skewering it deserves.

Breathe

Over the years, actor Andy Serkis has developed some major projects to direct. An adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm and Fox’s update on the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin have both interested the War For the Planet of the Apes star. He is, of course, in post-production on what we thought was going to be his directorial debut, Jungle Book: Origins, which was delayed once or twice and received assistance from Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity). And that brings us to actor’s first directorial effort to actually hit theaters, Breathe, which is based on a true story and stars Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy.

Below, watch the Breathe trailer.

Silence Trailer

This weekend brings the limited release of Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of Silence, a project that has been over 20 years in the making for the GoodFellas and Taxi Driver director. And now a powerful new international trailer has just debuted online.

Silence follows two 17th-century missionaries (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) as they face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan, where Christianity was outlawed at the time, to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson).

Silence Reviews

Director Martin Scorsese has been trying to get his adaptation of Japanese author Sh?saku End?‘s novel Silence off the ground for over 20 years. Now the film is finally hitting theaters later this month, and the first reviews have hit the web.

The film isn’t in line with the kind of movie more casual moviegoers are used to getting from Martin Scorsese, who is better known for movies like The Departed, The Wolf of Wall Street, Gangs of New York, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and GoodFellas. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have the same high quality we’ve come to expect from the filmmaker as he crafts something more along the lines of his films such as The Last Temptation of Christ and Kundun.

If you haven’t kept up with the development of Silence, the film follows two 17th-century missionaries (played by Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) as they face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). So how did Martin Scorsese’s long-gestating passion project pan out? Read some of the first Silence reviews after the jump.

So is it worth the wait? Click through to watch the Silence trailer and find out. Read More »

amazing spider-man questions

Only a few years after release, The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have already begun to recede into the background. When someone gets around to writing that book about the history of modern superhero movies, they will probably feel more like footnotes that inform the existence of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man than anything else.

But there is one person who will be fielding Spider-Man questions for the rest of his life and that person is Andrew Garfield, who played Peter Parker twice for director Marc Webb. Garfield has been very gracious about his time as Spidey and complimentary toward Holland’s casting, but in a new interview, he implies what we’ve always suspected – the overall game plan for the Amazing Spider-Man movies was a little half-baked.

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 »
