    Review: 'Apollo 18' | CraveOnline

    This film will shock you to your core. You won’t believe that a found footage movie can be just as exciting as a sci-fi classic. The last ten minutes are the most exciting of any summer movie, and without motion capture effects.
    Hurm.

    “STOKER” BEGINS PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHY « Movie City News

    Scott Free Productions, Fox Searchlight Pictures and Indian Paintbrush announced today that principal photography for the psychological thriller STOKER has begun in Nashville, Tennessee. The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Oscar ® winner Nicole Kidman with Dermot Mulroney and Oscar® nominee Jacki Weaver.

    In his first English language film, celebrated Korean director Park Chan-wook (OLDBOY, THIRST) will direct from an original screenplay by the former PRISON BREAK star Wentworth Miller, who wrote his inaugural script under the pseudonym Ted Foulke. STOKER is being produced by Scott Free Productions’ Tony Scott, Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan with Steven Rales and Mark Roybal of Indian Paintbrush serving as executive producers. Indian Paintbrush is co-financing the film with Fox Searchlight Pictures who will be releasing the film worldwide.

    After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

    Ben Affleck’s ‘Argo’ Fills Out the Rest of Its Cast, Begins Shooting


    I’ve already written a couple of different stories about the casting process of Ben Affleck’s next film as a director, Argo. His CIA drama includes an impressive list of names like Alan Alda, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, Kyle Chandler, and Affleck himself; and it tells a globe-hopping story that should push the limits of what Affleck can do as a director like nothing else he’s made up to this point. I’m really looking forward to it.

    So I’m pleased as punch that Warner Bros. has sent out a press release which not only states that filming is set to begin, but also confirms a few more interesting last minute names to fill out the cast. Joining that bevy of powerful presences up top will be veteran character actor Michael Parks, who recently has been used by directors like Kevin Smith in Red State and Quentin Tarantino in the Grindhouse movies, Clea Duvall, who’s been in movies like Zodiac and 21 Grams, Richard Kind, who you’ll recognize from things like Curb Your Enthusiasm and the Coens’ A Serious Man, and Tate Donovan who has done, well…uh, not much that I’ve liked. Still, add them all together and that’s a seriously awesome group of actors.

    I’ve done the plot synopsis thing on this movie before, but for the sake of posterity, let’s take a look at Warner’s official word on what this movie is about after the break:

    “Based on true events, Argo chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA ‘exfiltration’ specialist named Tony Mendez (Affleck) comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.”
    Think this belongs here.

    Contagion (2011) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    I strongly suggest sneezing and coughing at regular intervals if you go to see this...make it an interactive experience. Wear a facemask too. That'll be fun.

    I'm TIRED of the Contagion ads even more so that the Bucky Larson ads. Hasn't this idea already been done before? All star cast usually=crappy movie.

    Venice ‘11 Review: ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy’ Is A Remarkable, Quietly Devastating Spy Movie > The Playlist

    Few films here at Venice had such high expectations beforehand, so it gives us great pleasure to report that “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” is, on first viewing at least, incredibly rich and perfectly constructed, sitting with “The Conversation” and “The Ipcress File” in the very upper reaches of the genre. Alfredson appeared to be a major talent after “Let The Right One In,” and he exceeds his break-out here, never letting the style get in the way of the storytelling (as happened once or twice in the vampire film), while retaining an impeccable eye for period. The greys and browns that dominate the film—thanks to sterling work from DoP Hoyte van Hoytema—perfectly capture the grim days of 1970s Britain, and the attention to detail displayed is really quite extraordinary, every set and backdrop adding texture to the action; production designer Maria Durkovic gets a big gold star (we’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention Alberto Iglesias’ brilliant score, which does a great deal in terms of keeping the tension up). Alfredson revels in the analogue quality enabled by the setting, lingering on details of paper and tape in a computer-free world.

    Venice ‘11 Review: ‘Contagion’ Is A Propulsive, Terrifying Picture With A Top-Notch Cast > The Playlist

    the film is the kind of smart, grown-up entertainment that mostly doesn’t get made anymore—a firmly entertaining, commercial project made with impeccable craft. Unlike that film, it’s also got a good deal of substance going for it, and it lingers on the mind, and on the skin, for some time afterwards. We’d be tempted to call it the director’s best studio film since “Solaris,” and if he truly is planning on taking a sabbatical, it only reinforces what a loss it’ll be for movie lovers. [A-]
