mindhunter season 2 trailer

Director Carl Franklin is no stranger to the crime genre. Before shooting four episodes of Mindhunter season two and his illustrious career directing television, Franklin helmed two of the best damn crime movies of the 1990s, One False Move and The Devil in the Blue Dress. He’s an old pro when it comes to crafting exceptional tension, which there’s no shortage of in his episodes of the David Fincher-produced series.

Mindhunter isn’t the first time Franklin and Fincher have collaborated; the Out of Time director first worked with him on House of Cards. As he explained to us, Fincher was more involved this time around on Mindhunter. Franklin, who thankfully has a movie brewing he might direct soon, talked to us about his time working with Fincher, the unique style and stars of the acclaimed series, and a nice memory about the late, great Bill Paxton. At the time of the interview, we had yet to see the episodes he directed before the interview, so it’s a broader discussion about the Netflix series.

parasite oscars

Following the horrendous snubbing of Lee Chang-dong’s Burning last year, South Korea is going for round 2 in the country’s attempt to get its first-ever Oscar nomination. South Korea has submitted Parasite as its contender for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2020 Academy Awards. If Bong Joon-ho‘s black comedy earns one of the five slots, that would make it South Korea’s first-ever Oscar nomination.

breaking bad movie

Earlier this summer, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul had the internet aflutter when they began posting pictures of two donkeys, and then the two actors hanging out together, sparking speculation that they could be shooting the upcoming Breaking Bad movie. It turned out to be a false alarm – the photos were to promote their new mezcal company.

But now actor Bob Odenkirk, who played a supporting role on the acclaimed crime drama and stars on the AMC prequel series Better Call Saul, says the upcoming movie has already been filmed. Read his comments below.

disney box office record

The Walt Disney Company has made some changes to their calendar of upcoming feature film releases, starting with the delay of the live-action spin-off Cruella, based on the villain of the same name from 101 Dalmatians. But the more interesting news is the three Fox titles that Disney will be releasing in 2020, and two of them don’t really sound like they’re going to do Disney any favors at the box office. Get the updated Disney movie release dates and details on each of the projects below. Read More »

Twin Peaks box set

Here’s something that diehard Twin Peaks fans are going to want even more than a cup of coffee and a piece of cherry pie. A massive, 21-disc Blu-ray box set called Twin Peaks: From Z to A is on the way, and this baby will include basically everything any Twin Peaks fan could ever desire: the original TV show, the entirety of Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Return, never-before-released making-of content for The Return, the film Fire Walk With Me (complete with its deleted scenes), and more.

But this is a limited edition set, so you may have to act quickly if you want to get your hands on it.  Read More »

The Irishman Theatrical Release

Another year, another battle between Netflix and movie theater chains over a possible awards contender getting a wide theatrical release. Last year, it was Roma that didn’t play in any major theater chains due to Netflix’s desire to get the film on streaming as soon as possible but still meet the desires of director Alfonso Cuarón, who wanted his movie to play on the big screen. This year, it’s Martin Scorsese and his return to mob drama with The Irishman that’s creating a stir between Netflix and movie theater chains. Read More »

Bombshell Trailer

Fox News is probably the most nefarious, hypocritical news network out there (deal with it), and it’s largely thanks to the despicable men who helped make it the conservative-leaning media giant that it is today. No one deserves more credit for the degradation of cable news than Roger Ailes, and the story of his takedown from the empire he helped create is about to be told in a new movie called Bombshell from director Jay Roach.

Bombshell follows Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman as former Fox News personalities Megyn Kelly and Gretchen Carlson and the story of how they fought back against the sexual harassment and chauvinistic behavior of Roger Ailes, who will be portrayed by John Lithgow. The first Bombshell trailer has arrived, and while it’s a short glimpse at the movie, it’s also extremely effective in how it creates intrigue and tension, even if it doesn’t entirely lay out what the movie is actually about.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Bill Tench looks like he has the world weighing on his shoulders in season two of Mindhunter. The hunch, the looks of worry and distress, you can feel the restrained F.B.I. agent often coming so close to breaking, especially during a stunning scene in which he confronts, not questions, Charles Manson. The character remains endlessly fascinating to watch, as does the rest of Mindhunter.

Season two marks another one of the many collaborations between actor Holt McCallany and director David Fincher, which is a relationship going back to Alien 3. In-person, McCallany is just as captivating as he is on screen. He has such a great voice, so after hanging onto his every word during our interview with him, I left the Mindhunter junket thinking, “No wonder David Fincher loves filming this guy.” Today, he’s perhaps the closest we have to old school actors like, to name an example, Burt Lancaster, sharing a similar combination of authority and vulnerability. McCallany looks and sounds like a movie star straight out of the ’50s, making him all the more perfect for Bill Tench.

I only saw a handful of episodes before speaking with the actor, hence no questions about the scene with Charles Manson, but he discussed with us the Son of Sam sequence, his longtime collaboration with David Fincher, and Bill Tench’s worldview.
