Best Movies and TV to Stream in December: Sci-Fi Cops, Dave Chappelle and More
When historians look back at the cosmic coincidences that made up the annus miserablis that was 2017, they will likely skip over the fact Netflix released a movie named Bright and a German horror series titled Dark within mere days of one another. We, however, are happy to celebrate such a glorious irony right here and now. The streaming service is also dropping a pair of stand-up specials from heavyweight talents (and supposedly the new season of Black Mirror, which is scheduled for "late 2017" ... so, um, soon?). Meanwhile Amazon is keeping

Griffith, a three-time Golden Globe nominee, shared that she had experienced several grand mal seizures -- with the most recent ones being on a yacht outside Cannes, France.

“I had two seizures, one they took me off the boat.

S. Craig Zahler interview: Brawl In Cell Block 99, Bone Tomahawk

Simon Brew Oct 20, 2017

Writer/director S. Craig Zahler talks to us about his films, his approach, and Ridley Scott adapting his work…

I loved Brawl In Cell Block 99, the second feature film from novelist and filmmaker S. Craig Zahler. His first? Bone Tomahawk. I love that too, for the record. Zahler already feels like a very different voice in American film, a man content for his budgets to be low and control over his material to be high.

Lff 2017: ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99′ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Don Johnson, Marc Blucas, Tom Guiry, Udo Kier, Rob Morgan, Geno Segers, Fred Melamed | Written and Directed by S. Craig Zahler

The second feature from Bone Tomahawk writer/director S. Craig Zahler, stylishly executed, ultra-violent prison flick Brawl in Cell Block 99 features a revelatory performance from Vince Vaughn that will make you see the actor in a whole new light.

Vaughn plays Bradley Thomas, a scary-looking recovering alcoholic with a shaved head and a big old crucifix tattooed onto the back of it. When Bradley winds up in prison after a spot of drug-running goes south, he’s visited by a sleazy henchman (Udo Kier) and given an ultimatum: he has to get himself transferred to a nearby maximum security prison and murder an inmate there or horrible things will happen to his kidnapped wife (Jennifer Carpenter) and unborn child.

Movie Review – Brawl In Cell Block 99 (2017)

Brawl In Cell Block 99, 2017.

Directed by S. Craig Zahler.

Starring Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Don Johnson, Udo Kier and Marc Blucas.

Synopsis:

After losing his job, a former boxer starts working for a local drug dealer. When a deal goes sour, he’s held responsible by the cartel involved and can’t escape them when he goes to jail.

Movie Review – Brawl in Cell Block 99 (2017)

Brawl in Block Cell Block 99, 2017.

Written and Directed by S. Craig Zahler.

Starring Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Carpenter, Udo Kier, Don Johnson, and Marc Blucas.

Synopsis:

A former boxer-turned-drug runner lands in a prison battleground after a deal gets deadly.

Shortly after being laid off from his position as an auto mechanic, Bradley comes home (American flag proudly waived out front) where his wife Laureen confesses that she has been having an affair for a few months. The film has an 18-months later flash forward that heals the wounds, never once again referencing their marital woes, but the dilemma does serve a purpose. The disappointing news sends Bradley into a fit of rage destroying his wife’s car, ripping off the entire hood and tossing it into the street, among other brutish displays of strength, as if writer/director S. Craig Zahler (whose first feature film was last year’s unique

Say "Vince Vaughn," and what's the first image that comes up? His "you're so money" suit-wearing Swingers alpha male? His heroic environmentalist-slash-shutterbug in the first Jurassic Park sequel? Maybe your go-to Vaughn is The Break-Up–era bloated version that graced tabloid covers and Jennifer Aniston's beach pics, or the smarmy comic Casanova of Wedding Crashers? Forget those other Vinces. Whenever someone says the actor's name, you'll now see a glowering, menacing hulk of a man, one with a tattoo of a cross on the back of his shorn skull

Vince Vaughn Reborn: Why the Actor Left Comedy Behind to Play a Badass in Brutal ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’

Vince Vaughn Reborn: Why the Actor Left Comedy Behind to Play a Badass in Brutal ‘Brawl in Cell Block 99’
Brawl in Cell Block 99” introduces the retooled and muscle-plated Vince Vaughn 2.0 headfirst, his shaved and tattooed skull stomping away from the camera like an asteroid hurtling toward earth. Action Vaughn 2.0 has the same movie star qualities as the hunk of “Swingers”: the barreling 6’5″ frame, the deep-set eyes that convinced Rihanna to call him the sexiest man alive.

But now that Vaughn is 47, his powerful torso has the leather-knotted look of a man who spent his life pounding railroad spikes—no vanity abs here—and the exhausted shadows on his face say he’s seen too much. And that’s not just because he and “Cell Block” writer-director S. Craig Zahler just wrapped their second film together, “Dragged Across Concrete,” just four days before flying to Austin for the movie’s American premiere at Fantastic Fest. (It opens theatrically on October 6.)

Fantastic Fest 2017 Interview: Udo Kier Talks Brawl In Cell Block 99 and Reflects on Suspiria

  • DailyDead
Last week, S. Craig Zahler’s Brawl in Cell Block 99 celebrated its Us premiere at the 2017 Fantastic Fest, and it also enjoyed its Los Angeles debut yesterday evening at the 2017 Beyond Fest at the historic Egyptian Theatre. Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to speak with one of Cell Block 99’s co-stars, the legendary Udo Kier, who discussed what drew him into the project initially and his thoughts on collaborating with Zahler.

And because Kier has enjoyed a career that has now spanned over five decades (with well over 200 titles on his résumé), we also asked him about creating memorable characters and his involvement with Dario Argento’s Suspiria, which is enjoying new life amongst fans with Synapse Films' 4K restoration.

Congrats on the film, Mr. Kier. It's really fantastic. What was it in particular about this character, who doesn't even really have a definite name in this,

Brawl In Cell Block 99 Review [Fantastic Fest 2017]

Vince Vaughn will always be thought of as a dry-witted comedian, but writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s ultra-violent Brawl In Cell Block 99 looks to diversify opinions. Instead of crashing weddings, Vaughn is pulverizing skulls. Instead of running his mouth about how “money” people are, he’s quiet, frosty and speaking through dangerous actions. Even with Hacksaw Ridge and True Detective under his belt, this is a new, beastly look for the longtime funnyman, and what a break in character it is. Thoughts about the movie aside, this might be my favorite representation of Vaughn’s talents and not a single joke is needed. Welcome to the game, Vince “I Snap Limbs” Vaughn.

In Zahler’s story, Vaughn stars as Bradley Thomas (not “Brad,” just “Bradley”). We meet him as an honest mechanic, but within minutes, Bradley finds himself laid off on the same day his wife Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter

Fantastic Fest 2017 Review: Brawl In Cell Block 99 Repeatedly Punched its Way into My Action-Loving Heart

  • DailyDead
When we meet Bradley Thomas (Vince Vaughn) in Brawl in Cell Block 99, things could not be worse for our protagonist. A former boxer who has struggled to turn his life around by making an honest living has just lost his job due to the economy, and as he makes his way home early to lick his wounds, he discovers that his wife, Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter), has been having an affair. Not content with the direction his life is headed, Bradley decides to go back to being a drug runner for his dealer pal, Gil (Marc Blucas), but things go south after a pick-up goes badly, and Mr. Thomas finds himself being incarcerated for his crimes after he refuses to snitch on his boss.

All this seems like a rather run-of-the-mill set-up for a grungy revenge-fueled actioner, but what follows in Cb 99 is anything but predictable, as writer/director S. Craig Zahler
