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.

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 »

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. Of course, Officer K is digging where he shouldn’t be and there are some dangerous people in pursuit who cut their meeting short. Read More »

If we must return to the world of Blade Runner, a journey back with director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and cinematographer Roger Deakins sounds like a trip worth taking. Based on the trailers, their vision of 2049 Los Angeles is every bit as gorgeous and as bleak as we’d hope. The clip shown at Comic-Con didn’t take Hall H to the streets or skies of LA; it was an exchange between Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and a replicant (Sylvia Hoeks) working with Neander Wallace (Jared Leto).
Below, check out our Blade Runner 2049 Comic-Con reaction.

Just like last year brought us both Southpaw and Creed, this year we get two more boxing dramas. However, while last year’s stories set in the ring were entirely fictional, this year we get two non-fiction boxing movie. Bleed for This starring Miles Teller won’t arrive until November (watch the trailer here), but the other is arriving in theaters next week.
Hands of Stone follows Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil, Point Break) as Panamanian fighter Roberto Duran who once defeated iconic boxer Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) in 1980, but abandoned a rematch a few months later. It was one of the most famous face-offs in boxing history, so knowing that story detail doesn’t spoil anything like the most interesting parts of the story come from the boxers themselves.
A new red band Hands of Stone trailer teases what’s in store for audiences. However, it’s a bit of an odd one because the reason it’s a red band trailer is due to some explicit sex scenes being features. They just seem out of place as if they’re trying to pull in moviegoers who just want to see nudity. Read More »
