Tom Cruise and the failed United Artists experiment

Simon Brew Dec 14, 2017

In late 2006, with much fanfare, Tom Cruise was announced as headlining a revived United Artists. But what went wrong?

Lurking in the corners of Netflix UK is a not-very-widely-seen Tom Cruise movie, that a decade ago was all set to herald a new filmmaking dawn. Directed by Robert Redford, and with a cast that includes Redford, Cruise, Meryl Streep and a then-relatively-unknown Andrew Garfield, Lions For Lambs looked on paper to be a heavyweight political drama. Its focus is on three stories: an ambitious politician giving an interview to tough reporter, an army platoon being ordered to go on a top secret mission by said politician, and a professor trying to talk a promising student into turning his life around.

It looked like Oscar-bait. It turned out to be a footnote to the failure to resurrect United Artists.

United Artists was originally founded in 1919 by Charlie Chaplin,

Book Review – Artemis by Andy Weir

Ricky Church reviews Artemis by Andy Weir

Andy Weir gained a lot of attention with his debut novel The Martian, a science fiction tale that not only became a bestseller but a big blockbuster film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon.

She’s one of the most intelligent people in Artemis, but works a s a low-level dock worker smuggling contraband into the colony.

Ten Terrible Movie Promotions

  • Cinelinx
Beyond just the standard trailer(s) and poster, many films have an entire promotional campaign designed to spark interest. Here’s a look at ten film promotional campaigns which should have stayed on the drawing board.

Selling a movie is not an easy task, and over the years it has not gotten any easier. Promotional campaigns have to be very creative and persistent in order to capture people’s attention amid the sea of advertising we are flooded with on a daily basis. Common tactics include giveaways, publicity stunts, viral marketing techniques, sponsorships, and product tie-ins. Many films try to push the boundaries of traditional promotional campaigns in an effort to get an edge on the competition. Below is a brief look at ten campaigns (in no particular order) which definitely pushed the envelope, but doing so did more harm than good for the films they were trying to promote.

Jean Reno Boards Pablo Aragüés’ Fantasy Thriller ‘1,200 Souls’ (Exclusive)

Jean Reno Boards Pablo Aragüés’ Fantasy Thriller ‘1,200 Souls’ (Exclusive)
One of France’s best known actors, Jean Reno (“Leon: the Professional,” “Ronin,” “The Da Vinci Code”), is attached to star in “1.200 Almas” (“1,200 Souls),” a fantasy thriller from the Zaragoza-based producer-director tandem of Marta Cabrera and Pablo Aragüés whose “Novatos” proved a Netflix worldwide distribution pick-up.

L.A.-based Outsider Pictures Paul Hudson is handling world sales rights and executive produces along with Zaragoza VFX house Entropy Studio.

Despite Reno’s Spanish origins – his parents hail from Cadiz in Andalusia – “1.200” marks the first Spanish film for an actor who has sought to buck typecasting in a multitude of roles whose international titles take in “Nikita,” “Mission: Impossible,” “Godzilla” and “The Last Face.”

Reno, who won a European Film Academy’s European Achievement in World Cinema Awardin 2000, joins Swiss-Spaniard Ingrid García-Jonsson, who broke out with Jaime Rosales’ 2014 Cannes Un Certain Regard entry “Beautiful Youth,” scoring a Spanish Academy best new actress nomination, and [link=nm

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo

Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg Reunite in New Mission: Impossible 6 Photo
A brand new photo from Mission: Impossible 6 has surfaced. Director Christopher McQuarrie shared the photo on social media, which reunites Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg. This is the first official photo that's been released since Cruise suffered his severe injury while filming the movie back in August. Things seem to be moving right along now though and the movie should still be able to make its July 27, 2018, release date, despite the delay.

The new Mission: Impossible 6 photo looks great, in stark black and white, with Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt out in front and Simon Pegg's loyal Benji Dunn behind him. The photo doesn't really tell us anything about the movie, but it does serve as a reminder that we're in for another (hopefully) excellent spy adventure next year. With Spectre having disappointed in 2015, Mission: Impossible really has become the premiere spy franchise in Hollywood at the moment.

‘Mission: Impossible 6’: Christopher McQuarrie Releases a New Image of Tom Cruise and Simon Pegg

Filming is still underway on Mission: Impossible 6, but it looks like everything is back on track following Tom Cruise’s injury earlier this year. Writer-director Christopher McQuarrie has released a new image of Cruise and co-star Simon Pegg, and while it doesn’t tell us a single thing about the movie, it’s still a nice reminder that filming is humming along and hopefully the sequel is still on track for release next year. Additionally, I think we've reached the point where as good as the original Mission: Impossible is, it's tough to see these …

‘Mission: Impossible’ Producer Paula Wagner on Making Thurgood Marshall Movie

‘Mission: Impossible’ Producer Paula Wagner on Making Thurgood Marshall Movie
Paula Wagner’s five-year quest to get the story of Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall onto screen was “absolutely worth it,” the Hollywood producer told filmmakers at Poland’s Camerimage fest on Friday.

The inspiring biopic, “Marshall,” which opened in October, focuses on an early case the young Marshall takes on in Connecticut, defending a black chauffeur accused of rape and attempted murder against his rich, white employer. As the future jurist on the highest court in the land develops his strategy, viewers come to grips with the extent of racism and bias in the justice system that’s hardly limited to the South.

Set in 1940 and featuring “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman as Marshall, the courtroom drama avoids simple hero myths and portrays the defense attorney’s substantial (and deserving) ego as a factor that may endanger his success, as Variety reviewer Peter Debruge points out.

The true story, in which Marshall’s employer,

The Incredibles 2 Trailer Is Finally Here

The Incredibles 2 Trailer Is Finally Here
We may never get a good Fantastic Four movie, but Disney is giving us the next best thing. Arguably a much better thing. After more than a decade, we finally have our first look at Pixar's The Incredibles 2. Though, we don't get to see much. Director Brad Bird is finally returning to the world he created in 2004 by bringing us one of the most highly-anticipated superhero movies of 2018. And considering that Avengers: Infinity War is also coming out next year, that is a bold statement. But a deservedly bold statement.

‘Mission: Impossible 6’: Henry Cavill Shows Us His “Fashionable Nipple Attachments”

So far, the making of ‘Mission: Impossible 6‘ has been well documented. Since production on the sequel to ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation‘ Writer/Director Christopher McQuarrie has been diligent about providing behind the scenes looks at filming of the movie. Now, co-star Henry Cavill has shared his own image from the set that showcases the actor in a precarious position during the middle of a stunt, along with the self-described “fashionable nipple attachments”.

Check ou the image below for yourself:

Aside from my fashionable nipple attachments this didn’t feel so bad. Turns out that behind me is a 1980ft almost sheer drop. I say “turns out” but my adrenaline was extremely aware of it at the time! Seriously though, I am so appreciative of all the incredible places that this movie has taken me and all of the wild and wonderful things that it has asked me to do.

Dark Universe: the undignified death of a cinematic universe

Ryan Lambie Nov 14, 2017

It's fair to say that The Mummy didn't ignite the multi-movie franchise expected of it. We look at the death of the Dark Universe...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for 2017's The Mummy.

See related  Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

For some, The Mummy's marketing campaign began not with a bang, but a squeaky Tom Cruise scream. In December 2016, an unfinished trailer for the then-forthcoming film appeared online, and soon went viral: lacking music and proper sound effects, the promo's otherwise dramatic visuals suddenly seemed comically threadbare. A violent plane crash unfolded with only a few chunks of dialogue and an amusing yelp from co-star Annabelle Wallis; Tom Cruise stumbled about in zero-gravity with only a few apologetic 'oofs' and 'eeks' for company.

Steps were taken to have the leaked trailer removed, but as is the way of the web,

Documentary Filmmaker Frederick Wiseman on Life in Donald Trump’s America

Documentary Filmmaker Frederick Wiseman on Life in Donald Trump’s America
Frederick Wiseman, 87, whom Camerimage Film Festival is honoring with a retrospective of five films and its award for Outstanding Achievements in Documentary Filmmaking, has remained resolute in his approach to subjects, from Chicago public housing to juvenile court, beef feed lots and Paris’ Crazy Horse nightclub, since 1967. That’s when his first film, “Titicut Follies,” exposed such abusive practices at the Bridgewater, Massachusetts hospital for the criminally insane that it was banned for decades (though attorneys argued it was a violation of patients’ privacy).

His new project, “Ex Libris,” is an incisive, three-hour-plus look at the New York Public Library system that presents a host of the real-life heroes, struggles and small victories that have drawn audiences to Wiseman’s work ever since he left behind his career as an instructor and/or researcher at Boston University, Brandeis and Harvard, and picked up a camera.

“Ex Libris” leaves you with kind of a glow – something about seeing
