the snowman international trailer

While the first official trailer for The Snowman offered a tantalizing look at Michael Fassbender‘s hunt for a serial killer with a chilling trademark, the international trailer delivers even more gore and intrigue.

The adaptation of Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø‘s novel by Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (of Let the Right One In and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy fame) promises to be more than just a typical murder mystery set in a desolate snowscape, which is beginning to become a startlingly popular genre lately.

mission impossible 6

Tom Cruise teased the return of old and the introduction of new faces in Mission: Impossible 6, the next entry in the saga of Ethan Hunt and his death-defying stunts.

The spy action film commemorated wrapping production in New Zealand with a cast photo of the team gazing pensively off in the distance, the New Zealand wind whipping through their hair. It’s a visually pleasing photoshoot — helped by the fact that they’re all gorgeous actors — that gives us a peek at what to expect for the still untitled Mission: Impossible 6.

Daniel Espinosa interview

Daniel Espinosa made his directorial debut with Easy Money, originally called Snabba Cash. His Scorsese-presented gangster pic has an aggressive atmosphere, and it ultimately helped him land his second feature and first studio gig, Safe House. Since then, he’s directed Child 44 – a movie that reportedly had some difficulties – and his latest film, Life.

Espinosa’s sci-fi horror thriller, which came out this past weekend, often moves as efficiently as the film’s deadly alien, Calvin. The first living organism found on Mars creates a whole mess of problems for the crew on the International Space Station, all of whom Espinosa introduces in an eight-minute one shot.

We recently spoke with the director about the technically complicated shot, Alien and The Thing, the “disease of green screen,” and Life‘s crazy ending.

life super bowl spot

After its underwhelming opening weekend at the box-office, a Life sequel appears very unlikely. Nobody was expecting a follow-up to the lean sci-fi horror movie anyway, but screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick actually have an idea or two for how to continue the story. It turns out that the duo has a bigger Aliens-esque sequel in mind for their Alien-esque film.

Below, check out their thoughts on a Life sequel (SPOILERS for Life ahead).

life review

Once upon a time, Life would have been made for a sack of pennies on a set made out of cardboard and released as the bottom half of a double bill alongside whatever Roger Corman was making that year. Take away the modern window dressing and you’re left with one the great B-movie templates: there is a spaceship and there is a monster on the spaceship and everything does not go well on that spaceship.

Life takes that template and pretties it up. There are movie stars and expensive special effects and a thick layer of Hollywood gloss, but the finished film cannot hide its origins: this is schlock in an Armani suit, junkfood beneath filet mignon. And that’s perfectly fine.
