Ilya Naishuller doesn’t let a second go to waste in Nobody. It’s a lean and mean R-rated action-comedy that begins and ends with a relentless pace while never forsaking character. Still, compared to Naishuller’s directorial debut, Hardcore Henry, his second feature is patient. The musician-filmmaker threw everything he had into the kitchen sink with his first (love-it-or-hate-it) action movie.
Naishuller first directing credit, however, was a music video for his Russian indie rock band, called Biting Elbows. He remains in the band, which released the album, “Shorten the Longing,” last June. The filmmaker has helmed several music videos for his band, as well as for the band Leningrad. In Nobody, in particular, you can sense Naishuller’s career in music, especially when it comes to the steady flow and rhythm of the action.
Recently, we sat down with the filmmaker over Zoom as he told us about crafting his newest film’s set pieces, his aversion to shaky cam, and more. Nobody is in theaters today.

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.)
It’s astounding that in this day and age, when superheroes are either disillusioned or self-deprecating, that we can have a hero like Wonder Woman. In the bleak DC Cinematic Universe, where nihilism reigns supreme, here we have a hero who champions the ideas of hope, compassion, and goodness.
Diana (Gal Gadot) is not dissimilar from the Disney princesses, who have long been heroes of overwhelming empathy. They are aspirational figures who exist in an elevated reality — fairy tales themselves are metaphorical by nature, and rarely depict anything other than a black and white reality. This is Diana at the beginning of the film, the embodiment of the ultimate Disney princess, for all the gifts and faults that they have — though thankfully without the frequently troublesome depiction of an “evil” mother or stepmother figure commonly seen in fairy tales.

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.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed a barrage of footage upon Comic-Con with their presentation in Hall H.
