This past summer brought our first look at Nicolas Winding Refn‘s next film, a horror project called The Neon Demon. At the time, the film didn’t have a distributor and we weren’t sure when it would arrive. But today, Amazon Studios has announced acquisition of the film starring Elle Fanning, and they’ve released a new still from the movie as well. So when can you watch it? Read More »

It took director Shane Carruth nine years to make a follow-up to 2004’s time travel instant-classic Primer. Thankfully, 2013’s Upstream Color was a remarkable sophomore effort, a science fiction tinged drama that was as emotionally moving as his debut feature was mind-bending. Even more thankfully, we won’t have to wait nearly a decade for this third movie. His new movie is on the way and its already assembled a jaw-dropping ensemble.
We already knew that The Modern Ocean would be Carruth’s first step into big-budget filmmaking, but no one saw this cast coming. The man who once worked miracles with a couple thousand bucks is now commanding a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum. More details on the Modern Ocean cast can be found after the jump.

Just last week, we learned that there was a female Ocean’s Eleven in development with Sandra Bullock taking the lead role akin to George Clooney‘s Danny Ocean. There are even rumblings that the story might actually take place in the same universe as the original heist trilogy from Steven Soderbergh, with Clooney potentially making a cameo as Ocean. But the big question is, who will surround Bullock as the rest of the heist crew?
We decided to put together a prospective cast who would be perfect to team up with Sandra Bullock for some kind of heist. Obviously the characters won’t be exactly the same as they are in Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven, but since we’re just having fun assembling a dream cast, we’ve stuck to the characters pretty closely to put this list together for the female Ocean’s Eleven cast.

When a dog is killed in a movie, it’s generally a cheap ploy to elicit emotion. John Wick, on the other hand, earns your angst. The lovable beagle is only in the movie for 10 or 15 minutes, but when it’s killed off, it means something to both the narrative and the titular character. After the jump, learn why, thank God, John Wick 2 will not kill another adorable puppy.

John Wick, with all of its head-shooting, puppy-avenging, Keanu-growling madness, is one of the best action movies ever made. And you know what? I’ll say it. We’re all thinking it. It’s one of the best movies ever made. Screw you, Michelangelo Antonioni! This is real art right here.
Humorous hyperbole (or is it?) aside, the official news of a sequel blew up our brains like a bullet from one of Baba Yaga’s pistols. Now that John Wick 2 plot details are really starting to trickle out, our excitement is starting to coagulate and take form. This is really happening, and you can learn the details after the jump.

Keanu Reeves is about to put on a sharp suit once again for the sequel to 2014 the sleeper success John Wick, in which Reeves played a back-from-retirement assassin on a mission of personal vengeance.
Chad Stahelski is back to direct and presumably oversee the film’s action scenes — a big part of the popularity of John Wick in the first place was the great action and stunt work put together by Leitch and Stahelski, who spent much of their career in the stunt realm.
[Update: While we originally reported that David Leitch would co-direct with Stahelski, following the way in which the two made the first film, Collider now reports that Stahelski will direct John Wick 2 solo. Leitch will be credited as an exec producer.]
Now it looks like the John Wick 2 shoot date is set for this fall, as announced by production company Thunder Road. Read More »
