‘The New Radical’ Trailer: The Controversial Bitcoin Documentary That Proves ‘Mr. Robot’ Is Real

One of the most controversial films that played the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, “The New Radical” is a portrait of the founders of Dark Wallet, the bitcoin app that allows users to make purchases without leaving a digital fingerprint.

How Hans Zimmer changed modern film scores

Mark Allison Oct 11, 2017

Big film scores have changed over the past decade - and Hans Zimmer may be the reason why...

For every movie-going generation, there is a film score composer who ascends above all others and comes to encapsulate the sound of their era. In the 1940s and 1950s, the brooding and mysterious tones of Bernard Hermann would define a generation of suspense cinema. Decades later, it was John Williams who ushered in the blockbuster era with a series of bold and iconic melodies, from Jaws through to Superman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Jurassic Park. Today’s cinema has its own musical zeitgeist. When future archaeologists uncover the buried ruins of our civilisation, they may well refer to it as the 'Hans Zimmer period'.

Hans Zimmer is a movie composer of singular acclaim. He is one of the only such artists with the clout to fill concert arenas across the world,

Directors' Trademarks: Darren Aronofsky

  • Cinelinx
Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. In this installment, with the release of Mother!, we’re looking at the trademark style and calling signs of Darren Aronofsky as director.

Darren Aronofsky trained as a field botanist after high school. As part of his studies, he embarked on a backpacking trip across Europe and the Middle East. This inspired him, and he decided to attend Harvard, eventually graduating with a degree in film studies. He then went on to the American Film Institute to study directing. In 1997, he released his first feature film, the low-budget Pi. This film was well received by critics, and Aronofsky won the best director award at Sundance. Due to the success of his debut, he was offered the opportunity to make another film with a larger budget. That film became Requiem for a Dream,

‘Loving Vincent’ Review: The World’s First Oil-Painted Feature is a Truly Insane Vincent van Gogh Tribute — Telluride
Vladimir Nakobov’s 1938 novel “Laughter in the Dark” begins with its rich and horny (but happily married) hero arriving at the vision that will ultimately ruin his life. A retired art critic with cinematic aspirations, old Albinus is struck by the idea of taking a famous painter, “preferably of the Dutch School,” and animating one of his signature works into the stuff of motion pictures. Film technology was still in its infancy, and it made anything seem possible. What if someone could use it to breathe new life into a static canvas, adding new dimensions to the artist’s vision and illustrating what might have happened in the moments before and after the one that was immortalized in oil?

Albinus, to his credit, recognized the unique challenges that might be involved in such an endeavor. “It would entail a delicacy of work calling for novel improvements in the method of animation,

Not even Pixar has managed to do something like this.

Full Theatrical Trailer for Hand-Painted Van Gogh Film 'Loving Vincent'

"You're not going to stir things up again, are you?" Good Deed Entertainment has launched a theatrical trailer for the upcoming release of the film Loving Vincent, the very special hand-painted film telling the story of famed Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh. We've already featured a few trailers for this last year, but with a release date set for September they're finally giving this a stronger marketing push. The voice cast includes Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan, Eleanor Tomlinson, Helen McCrory, Chris O'Dowd and Douglas Booth. To top it off, the film features a score by the one-and-only Clint Mansell. I really love this animation, it's so unique and I'm still totally impressed they actually hand painted every single frame individually (behind-the-scenes here). I hope the film is as beautiful as the paintings. Can't wait to see this. Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman's Loving Vincent,

‘mother!’: 7 Things to Know About Darren Aronofsky’s Crazy Return to Psychological Horror
Has Darren Aronofsky ever made a movie more secretive than “mother!”? His new film is just over one month from opening and there have been no photos released, no confirmation of what character each cast member is playing, and barely any footage shown to the public. For a movie from a major director and studio, plus one that features one of the world’s biggest stars in a leading role, this is simply unheard of. The director is refusing to let “mother!” out from under lock and key, and it’s only causing anticipation to skyrocket.

Watch the chilling teaser for Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming horror film Mother!

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Josh Aruliah

The first teaser trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s latest, mother! promises a chilling experience as we see Jennifer Lawrence slowly approach her door accompanied by sinister voiceovers.

We hear Lawrence ask “What brings you to us?” which must be addressed to a mysterious visitor. We know that the synopsis of the film is that a couple, Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem, are visited by uninvited guests who test their relationship and disturb their tranquil existence. Lawrence can be heard uttering more questions, such as “Who are these people?”, suggesting the visitors cannot be trusted and foreshadowing the hair-raising events to come.

We can also hear what may be some of composer Jóhann Jóhannsson’s eerie score in the background, which builds as the trailer become more intense. Jóhannsson has been involved with films such as ‘Sicario’ and ‘Arrival’ for which he provided suitably haunting scores. This is

Annecy Film Review: ‘Loving Vincent’

Annecy Film Review: ‘Loving Vincent’
Stand in front of a painting by Vincent van Gogh for more than five minutes, and your brain starts to react in strange ways. Even today, more than a century after the artist’s death, the brushstrokes pack an almost psychedelic energy, vibrating with an intensity that seems to have sprung directly from van Gogh’s tortured personal life. Now imagine staring at one of these paintings for 90 minutes straight — or crazier still, watching a series of them actually start to move.

Such was the vision Polish animator Dorota Kobiela had for “Loving Vincent,” a truly awe-inspiring portrait of the great Dutch artist that boasts the distinction of being “the world’s first fully painted feature film.” That means every one of the nearly 65,000 frames in this near-lunatic labor of love was rendered by hand with oil paints, following a style intended to mimic that of the master — which has

Darren Aronofsky reveals gruesome first look poster of Jennifer Lawrence in Mother!

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Darren Aronofsky is all set to make his directorial comeback with a psychological thriller laden with an all-star ensemble cast in Mother (or mother! as it seems to be) so it only made sense that Aronofsky took to Twitter on Mother’s Day to reveal the first look image from the upcoming film.

The image, in the form of an illustrated poster, is pretty gruesome, but would you expect any less from the man who brought us Black Swan with Natalie Portman – who he recently worked with on last year’s Jackie where he took the chair of producer. The poster depicts a fresh-faced Jennifer Lawrence in an angelic pose surrounded by lilac flowers with an innocent yet pained expression as she holds out her bloodied hands which contain her heart which we can assume she tore from her own chest.

Mother is written, directed and produced by Aronofsky,

Movie Review – Ghost In The Shell (2017)

Ghost in the Shell, 2017.

Directed by Rupert Sanders.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael Pitt, Pilou Asbæk, Chin Han, Juliette Binoche and Michael Wincott.

Synopsis:

In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

The live-action adaptation of 1995’s ground-breaking anime Ghost in the Shell arrives on a tidal wave of controversy; fans are well aware of the concessions that come with adapting Japanimation into a $110 million 12A-rated movie, and that says nothing of the perceived “whitewashing” outrage regarding Scarlett Johansson’s casting as a character who was Asian in the source material.

Though the hardcore faithful are likely to nitpick it to death regardless, it’s an unexpected pleasure to report that Hollywood’s Ghost in the Shell gets much more right than it does wrong,

Darren Aronofsky-Jennifer Lawrence Horror Film Mother! Set For October

CinemaCon – the annual convention of film exhibitors – always proves to be a fountain of information regarding upcoming releases, as studios and distributors seek to get theatre owners and chains excited about their future wares. This year’s event has not disappointed – particularly since Paramount has finally begun to drop some hints about the Darren Aronofsky-Jennifer Lawrence collaboration we’ve been hearing rumours about for such a long time. We now know the film will be called Mother!, and will arrive in time for Halloween.

The reason this project is so highly anticipated is that it represents both a break from the established ‘norm’ for Darren Aronofsky, as well as a return to past success. The director has a tendency to return to the some collaborators multiple times – including Jennifer Connelly, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis, and composer Clint Mansell. This time, however, the filmmaker will be working with Johann Johannsson for the original score,

'Ghost in the Shell' Review: Anime Rehash Upgrades Software, Loses the Soul
Nestled between William Gibson's claim-staking 1984 novel Neuromancer and the Wachowskis' gamechanging The Matrix, Mamoru Oshii's 1995 cops-and-cyborgs tale Ghost in the Shell is almost assuredly better known than widely seen – next to Akira, it's one of the few anime titles that folks who don't know an Astro-Boy from a Dragonball Z can namecheck. Watch it now, and you'll see how Oshii's manga adaptation both grafted earlier influences onto its source material and influenced countless works that came after it. Like its main character, the movie caused ripples even when its presence seemed invisible.
