John Landis’ American Werewolf in London Sequel revealed

David Crow Nov 23, 2017

John Landis revealed his original plans for the An American Werewolf in London sequel, which included the entire original cast coming back.

An American Werewolf in London is one the seminal horror movies of the 1980s, if not all-time. The only lycanthrope film that’s able to stand shoulder to shoulder with The Wolf Man, this 1981 macabre masterwork married 80s sarcasm with Gothic thrills. It is also a movie that writer-director John Landis penned as a teenager about a decade before its release - and obviously had nothing to do with its belated 1997 sequel, An American Werewolf in Paris.

Still, it’s widely known that Landis pitched a version of the An American Werewolf in London sequel that was never used, and now he is opening up on what exactly that movie would have looked like. Speaking with author Paul Davis for his new book, Beware the

J.K. Simmons Dishes on Making Jim Gordon a 'Tough Guy,' Says He's Open to 'Spider-Man' Return (Exclusive)

J.K. Simmons Dishes on Making Jim Gordon a 'Tough Guy,' Says He's Open to 'Spider-Man' Return (Exclusive)
After playing J. Jonah Jameson, the cigar-chomping editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle, in director Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, J.K. Simmons is stepping into the rain-soaked shoes of Gotham City Police Commissioner Jim Gordon in the hotly anticipated Justice League, and he says he's looking to bring a different kind of ruggedness to the role.

Et's Ashley Crossan recently sat down with the Oscar winner to talk about taking on the iconic role, and Simmons recalled how daunting the opportunity felt when he first met with director Zack Snyder.

"I don't know anything about show business," Simmons hilariously prefaced his account of his first meeting with the blockbuster director. "My agent called and said, 'Zack Snyder wants to meet with you,' and I was like, 'Awesome. Who's that?' And he was like, 'He's like one of the biggest directors.' Not even like, 'This is what it's about,' just, 'Go meet

Tahar Rahim, Stacy Martin to Topline ‘Joueurs’ (Exclusive)

Tahar Rahim, Stacy Martin to Topline ‘Joueurs’ (Exclusive)
Tahar Rahim (“The Past,” “A Prophet”) and Stacy Martin (“Nymphomaniac,” “Redoutables”) are starring in “Joueurs,” a romance-crime drama that takes place in the clandestine gambling club network.

The film marks the directorial debut of Marie Monge, whose short “Marseille la nuit” was nominated for a Cesar in 2014. Michael Gentile at Paris-based The Film, whose credits include Julie Delpy’s “Lolo,” is producing.

“Joueurs” revolves around the relationship between a gambling addict and a young woman who falls madly in love with him and will stop at nothing to win his heart.

The key crew includes Paul Guilhaume, the cinematographer of “Ava,” which premiered at Cannes Critics’ Week.

The script was penned by Monge, Julien Guetta (“Le petit locataire”) and Romain Compingt, the co-writer of Houda Benyamina’s Golden Camera winning “Divines.”

Gentille said Monge developed the script for three years and did extensive research in underground gambling club networks to depict the characters accurately and give them

Richard Armitage interview: Audible’s Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde, My Zoe, The Hobbit and more

Duncan Bowles Nov 15, 2017

Richard Armitage chats to us about his new audio production, Dracula, The Hobbit, his upcoming projects and more...

Just the other month we had the pleasure of chatting to Richard Armitage when he was promoting Pilgrimage, but as luck (and his productivity) would have it, we were given the opportunity for a catch up about his latest voice performance, with the Audible release of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde.

Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story comes as part of The Monster Collection, a Gothic trilogy which also includes a reading of Frankenstein by Dan Stevens and Dracula by Greg Wise. There’s also ‘an exclusive introduction by Dr. Maria Mellins and Dr. Peter Howell, Senior Lecturers in Gothic literature at St Mary's University, London’ who, strangely enough, are both people I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years – it’s a small world indeed.

J.K. Simmons on Playing a Grieving Widower in 'The Bachelors'
In his new film The Bachelors, Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons plays a newly widowed father grappling with depression, something he says his life experience prepared him for.

In the film, his character picks up and moves to Los Angeles with his teenage son (played by Josh Wiggins) for a private school teaching job, after the early death of his wife. Their lives begin to transform due to two unique women (portrayed by Academy Award nominee Julie Delpy and Odeya Rush), who help them embrace life and love again.

Simmons tells The Hollywood Reporter his approach to the character was two-fold:...

Luca Guadagnino Planning ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Sequel For 2020

Luca Guadagnino Planning ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Sequel For 2020
Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy is famous for checking in on the relationship between Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) every 9 years, and Elio and Oliver from “Call Me By Your Name” will operate similarly on the big screen if Luca Guadagnino has his way. ScreenDaily reports that the Italian filmmaker is planning a sequel to his Sundance darling in which the movie will pick up with the characters three years later. Similar to the “Before” trilogy, actors Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer will match the ages of their characters.

“I want to do a sequel because Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel – they are all gems,” Guadagnino said during the BFI London Film Festival. “The texture we built together is very consistent. We created a place in which you believe in the world before them. They are young but they are growing up.

61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Last Flag Flying (2017)

Last Flag Flying, 2017.

Directed by Richard Linklater.

Starring Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne and J. Quinton Johnson.

Synopsis:

Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry “Doc” Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.

Richard Linklater is a director who specialises in on the cusp, transitional dramas. Dazed and Confused sees a group of college kids on kick out day, the Before trilogy picks up with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy’s characters at various crossroads points in their lives, and his masterful Boyhood is one glorious study of identity in transition as the central character grows from the age of 7 to 19 in front of our eyes. Even School of Rock culminates in the heartwarming progression from prep school snotnosers into fully fledged rock gods.

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in October 2017
For movie lovers, October is the gloriously ghoulish time of year when we celebrate one kind of film above all others. That’s right: Biting comedies about dysfunctional New York Jews who finally decide to air their grievances after decades of resentment! Um… well, maybe Netflix didn’t get the memo. It’s not as though the streaming service isn’t scaring up some choice horror titles in time for Halloween (don’t miss “Raw” or “The Cult of Chucky”), but most of the month’s big new additions aren’t exactly in season.

Case in point: The splashiest arrival is a Noah Baumbach film, and it’s safe to say that “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)” is considerably less frightening than any of the Adam Sandler comedies that Netflix has brought to you before. On the other hand, it’s true that movies can terrify you in a

‘Last Flag Flying’ Review: Richard Linklater Enlists Superb Ensemble In Dramedy Of War And Words
Most war movies offer lots of action, explosions and perilous life-and-death situations, but not Last Flag Flying from director and co-writer Richard Linklater. As he has proven in the past, Linklater is one of the rare filmmakers who loves words and lets them breathe onscreen — think his Before Sunset trilogy in which Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy wander around talking about their relationship for three movies, or the 12-year gestation of his unquestionable masterpiece Boyh…

First Trailer for Indie 'The Bachelors' with J.K. Simmons & Julie Delpy

"The only way you're going to feel better is if we figure out some way for you to let her go..." Freestyle Media has unveiled the first trailer for The Bachelors, an indie dramedy directed by Kurt Voelker that first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The film is about a man, played by J.K. Simmons, who takes his teenage son and moves into the big city after his wife dies. As they each begin to adjust to their new life and seek ways to heal their wounds, they both find comfort in newfound romance. The impressive cast includes Julie Delpy, Josh Wiggins, Kevin Dunn, and Odeya Rush. This looks charming and heartfelt, and full of some fun scenes as well as touching moments. As usual for American indies, but I'm still curious. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kurt Voelker's The Bachelors, direct from YouTube: After

Columbus – Review

Columbus is not a film about the Italian explorer but about an American city named for him. No, not Columbus, Ohio, but the lesser-known Columbus, Indiana. This small Midwestern city is home to a surprising number of buildings designed by big names in mid-century Modern architecture, such as Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Deborah Burke, Harry Weese and others.

St. Louisans might recognize Eero Saarinen as the designer of the Gateway Arch but architecture buffs will know those names are some of the biggest of the Modern style of architecture. If you are a fan of mid-twentieth century architecture, or of Columbus, Indiana, then Columbus is the film for you. But even if not a fan of either, viewers might give this thoughtful,

A graduate of Nyu’s Tisch School of the Arts, Delpy has directed, written or acted in more than 30 films.

The Untamed review – a film about love, pleasure and a tentacular sex monster

This sly and subversive allegorical body horror from the Mexican director of Heli is about the universal drives and addictions that power us all through life

Mexican film-maker Amat Escalante’s work has included the challengingly violent crime drama Heli (2013). Now he has created a bizarre realist-fantasy parable in which queasy eroticism and body horror are absorbed into life’s many pains and injustices. It is set in Guanajuato in central Mexico, which Escalante’s movie endows with a forbidding remoteness. The original title is La Región Salvaje, or the savage region. A perplexing opening sequence, showing what appears to be a vast asteroid heading for Earth, lays the foundation for the film’s strange premise. The asteroid has brought with it a new life form which its elderly discoverers – retired people who live in a modest woodland shack – find it necessary to keep secret, rather like Mr and Mrs

31 underrated movies well worth a look

Simon Brew Aug 18, 2017

Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...

Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..

The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Trip to Spain,” what is the best movie trilogy?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

Far be it from me to choose between Antonioni’s non-trilogy “L’Avventura,” “La Notte,” and “L’Eclisse” and Kiarostami’s explicitly-denied “Koker” trilogy of “Where Is the Friend’s Home?,” “Life and Nothing More,” and “Through the Olive Trees” (and I’m tempted to make a trilogy of trilogies with Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Day of Wrath,” “Ordet,” and “Gertrud”), but if I put Kiarostami’s films first, it’s because he puts their very creation into the action. Reflexivity isn’t a

Ethan Hawke Still Has Hope for Jesse and Celine’s Future, Teases A Fourth ‘Before’ Movie
It’s been four years since Jesse and Celine’s hotel fight in Greece broke our hearts, and anyone wondering what the couple at the center of Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy is up to nowadays certainly isn’t alone. Is the couple still happily married? Or did that cataclysmic event uproot their entire love story? Linklater’s ambiguous ending to “Before Midnight” hinted at reconciliation, but it didn’t necessarily guarantee it.

Hawke recently sat down with The Independent to promote his new movie “Maudie,” in which he stars opposite Sally Hawkins, and the conversation couldn’t help but find its way to the “Before” trilogy, which the actor says is “connected to [his] soul, for lack of a better word.” Every nine years since “Before Sunrise” in 1995, Hawke has reunited with Linklater
