Murder on the Orient Express

Crime stories have been all the rage lately, ranging from the documentary series Making a Murderer to the podcast Serial and the dramatization of one of the most publicized trials ever in The People vs O.J. Simpson. This fall we’ll get another one, but it’ll be a classic that millions have either read or seen before.

Murder on the Orient Express is a new adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic novel or a remake of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film adaptation, however you want to look at it. The whodunit won’t hit theaters until November, but some first look photos have just arrived showing off the star-studded cast that includes Johnny Depp, Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Olivia Colman, Leslie Odom Jr, Willem Dafoe, Tom Bateman, Derek Jacobi and the film’s director, Kenneth Branagh, with one of the most impressive mustaches the big screen as ever seen.

Our own Peter Sciretta saw some footage at CinemaCon and said it looks promising, complete with some stellar costume and production design. Now you can see what he was talking about in the first Murder on the Orient Express remake photos below. Read More »

a family man trailer

We’ve seen Gerard Butler save the President twice, play a God, and soon we may even witness him discover a way to defeat a Geostorm in this year’s Geostorm. Butler is typically a powerful, bone-breaking presence on the big screen, but he isn’t playing an action hero in A Family Man. In the drama, which co-stars Alison BrieWillem Dafoe and Alfred Molina, Butler is a success hungry headhunter in Chicago who has trouble balancing his work and family life, until everything changes.

murder on the orient express cast

When Willem Dafoe signs up for a movie, that film is pretty much guaranteed to have at least one good performance. We expect nothing less of Dafoe, an actor I can’t think of giving an underwhelming performance in recent memory. Not only is he consistent, he’s also great more often than not, so it’s satisfying to learn he’s joined Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express remake.

Justice League Cast

Since we’re coming to the end of 2016, movie studios are starting to push a preview of what’s in store for the big screen in 2017, especially on the blockbuster front. It’s going to be another crowded summer, but one of the more anticipated movies of the year won’t be arriving until this fall, and that’s Justice League. But that’s not stopping Warner Bros. Pictures from stirring up some hype.

Even though we have still a little under 11 months away from the release of Justice League, the studios included mention of the movie in their 2017 movie preview press kit. Within their brief bit of information on the superhero ensemble movie, they included one cast member who hadn’t yet been confirmed by the studio, and one that we hadn’t heard of at all yet.

Find out about the new Justice League cast details after the jump. Read More »

The Great Wall

Everyone’s familiar with the Great Wall of China, but far fewer people know why it was built in the first place. Fortunately, the new The Great Wall trailer is here to tell us. Forget everything you’ve read in your history books about trade and invasions and whatnot — In Zhang Yimou‘s upcoming fantasy epic, Matt Damon discovers the real reason it exists is to keep out the monsters. Not “monsters” as in bad people; actual, literal monsters like you might see in Godzilla or Pacific Rim. Watch The Great Wall trailer below.  Read More »

Dog Eat Dog

So far Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage‘s second collaboration, Dog Eat Dog, has divided critics, but they’ve still been kinder to the duo’s latest film than they were to Dying of the Light, a butchered movie that got ripped out of Schrader’s hands. That unfortunate experience for the director helped bring him and Cage to Dog Eat Dog. For their second film, Schrader was intent on making it under the right circumstances, so he secured final cut for this comedic crime thriller. Also starring is Willem Dafoe, who’s no stranger to working with Schrader, having starred in Light Sleeper and Auto Focus.

Walt Disney's The Florida Project

At the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, I sat in the library theater for the premiere of an ultra low budget film titled Tangerine. Filmmaker Sean Baker‘s Duplass Brothers-produced dramedy told the story of a transgender working girl searching Hollywood on Christmas Eve for the pimp who broke her heart. The film surprised the crowd with its heart and comedy, but the big shock came after the screening when the director revealed that the whole film was shot on an iPhone 5s.

The film has been namedropped by big filmmakers like JJ Abrams, and a lot of people have been interested to find out what Baker would be doing next. In April it was revealed that Baker had found his next movie, a film called The Florida Project. The title actually refers to Orlando Florida’s Disney World. Disney fanatics probably know that when Walt Disney first started buying up land and planning Disney World, the theme park plans was referred to it as “The Florida Project.”

Dog Eat Dog trailer

Paul Schrader and Nicolas Cage‘s previous collaboration didn’t go so well. The Cold Dying of the Light was taken from the director, butchered and then dumped into theaters. Schrader and Cage disowned the film, a mess that actually features a pretty good performance from Cage. To avoid repeating the same experience twice, they made sure to make their next film under the right circumstances. With Dog Eat Dog, Schrader has final cut, so, unlike The Cold Dying of the Light, this darkly comedic crime thriller is a genuine Paul Schrader film.
