Christina Hendricks has been discussing her role in the upcoming Ryan Gosling-written and directed fantasy, How to Catch a Monster, this week, as we are told that her character works in a fetish club.
There has been many things said about Lars Von Trier’s upcoming and inevitably erotic drama, Nymphomaniac, over the past couple of months, the latest writing on the wall being that Christian Slater has joined the cast.
Debuting at Sundance earlier this year, coming away with an award in hand and a substantial level of critical acclaim, and screened at TIFF last week, we have the first trailer for James Ponsoldt’s Smashed.
Led by a trio of Oscar-winners - Christopher Waken, Al Pacino, and Alan Arkin – this week we have the new trailer for Fisher Stevens’ Stand Up Guys.
Juan Antonio Bayona's directorial debut, The Orphanage, was a superbly paced and beautifully shot paean to old-fashioned ghost stories. Everything about the film, including its gut-punching ending, united audiences in believing that this was a creative force to be reckoned with.
If early reviews are to be believed, his second film, The Impossible, seems to be made up of many tiny gut punches, more akin to a voracious, belly-fixated mosquito than a full-on rug-pulling empathy-fest.
With filming now underway for The Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, this week we have the first collection of set photos to be leaked out, which includes a first look at new tributes Finnick Odair, Mags, Gloss, Beetee, and Enobaria, who will be joining Katniss and Peeta in the second adaptation based on Suzanne Collins acclaimed Hunger Games trilogy of novels.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not hit the jump if you have not seen Avengers Assemble, but intend to. The following information pertains to a massive plot point in the film, and its bizarre omission from the UK Blu-Ray and DVD release. Seriously, only continue if you either know the film well or don't care about the story.
A trailer has surfaced for new found-footage horror movie, The Bay. A couple of warning lights should be flashing already - the director of What Just Happened and Man Of The Year (for crying out loud), adding to the already oversubscribed and often terribly-wrought genre of 'the government didn't want you to see this' movies? Please, tell us this is not so.
With factory chimneys emerging through an oppressive fog, Hell is a City creates an unashamedly grim vision of existence in the metropolis. Through a post-murder man hunt, Manchester, and by extension 1960s urban life as a whole, is shown to be a corrupting influence that brings misery into the home. With the angry young men of the British New Wave casting the camera onto the kitchen sink in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning in the very same year, Val Guest’s film similarly seeks out the banal and ordinary. Yet combined with a dark streak of expressionist noir, Hell is a City remains an intriguing crime flick.
