The Neon Demon

I don’t think anyone was expecting a unanimous reaction to Nicolas Winding Refn‘s The Neon Demon. Refn’s horror film just screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and the critical response was mixed, to say the least. Some have claimed the reaction was even more divisive than when Only God Forgives debuted at the festival — which likely pleases Refn, who never attempts to satisfy all audiences. “I can only say if you’ve polarized, you’ve done something right,” he once said. “If everyone likes it, you’ve done something wrong.”

The Neon Demon international trailer

“Beauty isn’t everything; it’s the only thing,” Keanu Reeves‘ (John Wick) character claims in The Neon Demon international trailer. We haven’t seen much of Reeves in the past trailers for the film, and, thankfully, the international trailer continues to portray him as more of a background player. Besides plenty of neon lighting and blood, we still don’t fully know what to expect from Nicolas Winding Refn‘s upcoming film. While international trailers tend to have a habit of spoiling surprises or major plot points, this one doesn’t appear to reveal too much from the Drive and Only God Forgive director’s latest project.

The Neon Demon

Maybe it’s because Nicolas Winding Refn‘s films tend to be light on plot, but whoever has been cutting the trailers for the Drive and Bronson director’s upcoming horror picture, The Neon Demon, has done an excellent job not giving away any of the film’s secrets, instead focusing far more on the picture’s atmosphere. We still don’t even know the exact significance of Keanu Reeves‘ (John Wick) role in The Neon Demon, which is a great rarity in this day and age, but we’ll soon find out more about Reeves’ mystery role. Amazon Studios, in association with Broad Green Pictures, will release Refn’s latest on June 24th.

The Neon Demon trailer

Elle Fanning does “sweet and innocent” really well, as we’ve seen in films like Maleficent and Super 8. But her next film, The Neon Demon, will let her show off a darker edge. Fanning plays a young aspiring model named Jesse, who gets caught up in the thrill and the horror of the LA scene. And Nicolas Winding Refn directed it, so you know you can look forward to drinking in some neon-saturated gorgeousness. Watch the first Neon Demon trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Christina Hendricks in Drive

Women with Santa fetishes probably aren’t that common in real life (I’m assuming; I do not have any hard data to back this up), but apparently there’s no shortage of them in the Bad Santa universe. After wooing bartender Sue (Lauren Graham) in the original Bad Santa, Billy Bob Thornton‘s Willie Soke will find himself romancing a new woman in the upcoming sequel, to be played by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks. Learn more about Hendricks’ new Bad Santa character after the jump.  Read More »

This spring marks the end of an era. For the characters of Mad Men, that era is the tumultuous 1960s; for viewers of Mad Men, it’s the show’s seven-season run as one of the finest dramas on television.

AMC split the last season of Mad Men into two parts, Breaking Bad-style, so that the first half aired last year while the second is scheduled to kick off in April. To prepare us for the end, the network has released a slew of promo pics for the final season. See the Mad Men final season images after the jump.
