No Time to Die Photos

A proper glimpse at 007’s next mission arrived this week with the first trailer for No Time to Die. It certainly looks like a better outing for Daniel Craig than Spectre, and considering this is his send-off as James Bond, that’s good news for fans. But the movie is still roughly five months away, so we’ll have to sink our teeth into some slick official images from the movie in the meantime

The new No Time to Die photos feature shots of Daniel Craig looking both rugged and dapper, as well as the return of Christoph Waltz as Blofeld and another facially disfigured villain in the form of Rami Malek. Plus, it wouldn’t be a James Bond movie without some ladies on the scene, including Ana de Armas, Lea Seydoux, and Lashana Lynch. Read More »

Wasp Network Review

French maestro Olivier Assayas did not cement his status as a cinephile favorite over the last quarter-century through the mechanics of his film’s plots. Rather, he’s become a festival darling because of the singular sensation left lingering from watching his work. What happens in an Assayas film is never as important as how it happens – the technique, the intellection, the panache.

Assayas must have had his reasons for taking on a project like Wasp Network, a tale of espionage and counterterrorism. Whatever they were, however, do not come through clearly. The film offers few pleasures beyond the crossing of wires in its tale of tangled alliances in post-Cold War Cuba. Assayas becomes so subservient to the sheer volume of events and information he must bring to life that the film completely subsumes any sense of personal style or voice. The producers could have put any workman studio director’s name over the closing credits, and I would not have bat an eyelid.

Ana de Armas Playing Marilyn Monroe

Director Andrew Dominik (Killing Them Softly, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) has been trying to get the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde off the ground for nearly a decade. Now that the project is set up at Netflix, it sounds like it’s finally going to happen, and the woman who will bring the blonde starlet to life has finally been chosen (again).

Blonde currently has Blade Runner 2049 star Ana de Armas in early talks to play Marilyn Monroe, the wildly popular actress of the 1950s and 1960s who unfortunately left us far too young at age 36 when she suddenly died after a substance overdose in 1962. Read More »

Blade Runner 2049 TV Spot

We’re returning to futuristic Los Angeles this Fall with the long-awaited sequel, Blade Runner 2049. Picking up where Ridley Scott left off in 1982, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Prisoners) follows a new blade runner played by Ryan Gosling as he uncovers a secret from the past that will greatly impact the future, especially when it comes to replicants.

A new Blade Runner 2049 TV spot from our friends in the United Kingdom has arrived online, and it’s long enough that you could even consider it a trailer. There is plenty of new footage, including Officer K (Gosling) officially asking Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) to help him with some kind of case.
