Steppenwolf mask

We haven’t seen much of Steppenwolf’s not-so-pretty mug from the Justice League marketing. The big bad of the film is played via motion-capture by Ciarán Hinds, so the little we’ve seen of villain’s face has been blurry, probably unfinished visual effects.

And because toys and other merch always seem to outpace their own movies, a new mask gives a slightly better idea of Steppenwolf’s grizzled face looks like.

Justice League Steppenwolf / Ciaran Hinds as Mance Rayder in Game of Thrones

Many of Justice League‘s key roles were filled even before the film entered pre-production, because many of those characters were needed for Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Still more of them were cast back in the spring, as shooting got underway. But there’s been one glaring omission this whole time.

Though we’ve known for months that the villain of Justice League would be Steppenwolf, we’re just now learning who’ll play the part. Irish actor Ciarán Hinds has joined Justice League to portray Steppenwolf through the power of mo-cap. Hinds is probably best known right now in the U.S. for playing Mance Rayder in HBO’s Game of ThronesRead More »

Hitman Mad Men credits

For years the enigmatic opening credits to Mad Men have provoked viewers into many entertaining questions. How literal is the opening animation meant to be? What does it mean for Don Draper, and by implication the rest of the characters? While the metaphoric thrust of the credits is evident to anyone who watches the show, it’s still fun to talk about.

Now a teaser for the new film Hitman: Agent 47 shows us the truth behind the Mad Men credits, just in time for the AMC show to broadcast its final leap into the sky. No surprise: in this conception, it isn’t a leap, but a violent fall. Read More »

Last Days in the Desert

In Rodrigo Garcia‘s beautiful and lush film Last Days in the Desert, the journey is uncertain for a while. We follow Jesus, played by Ewan McGregor, as he enters the desert on a journey for truth. “Father, speak to me,” he says. As he walks and thinks, he begins to see visions of Satan, also played by McGregor. He meets a family out in the desert, and the audience may initially wonder what those people are doing out there. But eventually it clicks. We realize the point, just as Jesus probably realizes the point in the narrative, and the film blossoms into something beautiful but not entirely fulfilling.
