The Reality of a Reflection: An Exploration of Jean-Luc Godard's Filmography

  • MUBI
Mubi's retrospective For Ever Godard is showing from November 12, 2017 - January 16, 2018 in the United States.Jean-Luc Godard is a difficult filmmaker to pin down because while his thematic concerns as an artist have remained more or less consistent over the last seven decades, his form is ever-shifting. His filmography is impossible to view in a vacuum, as his work strives to reflect on the constantly evolving cinema culture that surrounds it: Godard always works with the newest filmmaking technologies available, and his films have become increasingly abstracted and opaque as the wider culture of moving images has become increasingly fragmented. Rather than working to maintain an illusion of diegetic truth, Godard’s work as always foreground its status as a manufactured product—of technology, of an industry, of on-set conditions and of an individual’s imagination. Mubi’S Godard retrospective exemplifies the depth and range of Godard’s career as

Competition: Win ‘The Incredible Shrinking Man’ from Arrow Video!

To celebrate the Blu-ray release of The Incredible Shrinking Man, available on Blu-ray from 13th November, we have a copy of the film on Blu-ray up for grabs, courtesy of Arrow Video!

Based on the novel by the massively influential sci-fi and horror writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, The Martian Chronicles), with a script adapted by Matheson himself, and directed by Fifties sci-fi king Jack Arnold (Creature From The Black Lagoon), this is rightly regarded as being one of the finest science-fiction films of all time, a critically-acclaimed smash hit that currently has a 90 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes. Genuinely thrilling, and, as Scott’s plight becomes more desperate, tense and gruelling, the film features superbly realised special effects that bely the era, and the setting Scott finds himself in – filled with oversized household objects that suddenly become threatening and dangerous – takes on a wonderfully surreal atmosphere.

Kino Lorber to Release Trilogy Of Terror (1975) on Blu-ray

  • DailyDead
It's regarded by many as one of the creepiest made-for-tv movies of all time, featuring one of the most unsettling (and relentless) killers to grace the small screen. Over 40 years after its initial premiere, Trilogy of Terror is coming to Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

As announced on their Facebook page, Kino Lorber will release Trilogy of Terror on Blu-ray (and DVD) sometime in early 2018 (according to Blu-ray.com) with a brand-new HD master.

Directed by Dan Curtis, the anthology film features segments based on stories by horror master Richard Matheson, including one featuring a Zuni Warrior Festish Doll that attacks Karen Black and has certainly crossed over into more than a few nightmares over the years.

There's no word yet on the special features, cover art, or specific release date for the new Blu-ray, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime,

Fantastic Beasts 2 to feature even more Harry Potter surprises

While he was doing the rounds promoting Paddington 2 [read our review here], super-producer David Heyman (Gravity, I Am Legend) spoke to Digital Spy about the mission statement for the next Fantastic Beasts film and its subsequent sequels.

Heyman stated “I think the pleasure of these Fantastic Beasts films is that they’ll work on their own terms. You don’t need to know Harry Potter to enjoy them, but if you do, you have another layer, another level to enjoy. I’m very excited as more nuggets drop and audiences respond. Fans will be incredibly excited. This next film is different to the first, but each film will march to its own beat and have its own tone. I don’t yet know if the series will get darker, although all of them will be fun and entertaining.”

Does the formula need to change that much from the $800m grossing original, or are

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Old Beast’

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Old Beast’
Social realism is delivered with an impressively tough edge in “Old Beast,” a compelling portrait of a selfish father whose reprehensible behavior drives his adult children to take drastic action. Set in a corner of Ordos, a boom-bust city in Inner Mongolia where clusters of apartment blocks remain largely unoccupied, this first feature written and directed by Ordos native Zhou Ziyang sports a terrific central performance by veteran Tu Men (“A Simple Goodbye”) and offers pungent commentary on the extensive damage to social cohesion when economic development programs don’t deliver the projected results. Produced by admired Chinese director Wang Xiaoshuai (“In Love We Trust”, “Red Amnesia”), this broadly accessible tale should enjoy a lengthy festival life and have regional art-house prospects. Domestic release details are yet to be announced.

A one-time restaurateur and investor who lost everything when the Ordos real estate market tanked, 60-ish Lao Yang (Tu) hustles around town playing mah-jong and acting like the

Horror Channel Frightfest Interview: Mathieu Turi talks ‘Hostile’

Ahead of the UK premiere of his debut feature Hostile at the Horror Channel Frightfest Halloween event, director Mathieu Turi shares his admiration for Tarantino, describes the challenges of filming in three continents and reveals his ‘magic hour’.

You were born in Cannes so you grew up with film all around? When did you know for sure you wanted to direct?

I think it’s always been there. As a child, I used to steal my dad’s VHS camera to make mini-movies. They were basically all about my Jurassic Park toys eating my dog or invading the garden. Later, I did more elaborate short films with friends, instead of studying. Then, I remember watching Braveheart and the making of the movie. For the first time, I knew that directing was something I wanted to do for a living.

New Mutants Trailer Is Here Bringing the Next X-Men Saga
The New Mutants trailer is here sooner than anyone expected. Have you ever wondered what it might be like if someone made a horror movie with a bunch of mutant superheroes in it? Wonder no longer, because director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) has done exactly that with the X-Men spin-off The New Mutants. Now, we have the very first teaser trailer for the movie, which promises something the likes of which we've never seen in the X-Men universe before. Or really in a superhero movie in general, for that matter.

Josh Boone promised yesterday that the New Mutants teaser trailer would debut at 12:01 a.m. and it was delivered as promised. As New Mutants has been teased as the first ever Marvel horror movie, the director and Fox appear to be leaning pretty heavily into that angle, as they decided to release the trailer on Friday the 13th.

October Horrors 2017 Day 8 – The Omega Man (1971)

The Omega Man, 1971.

Directed by Boris Sagal.

Starring Charlton Heston, Anthony Zerbe, Paul Koslo, and Rosiland Cash.

Synopsis:

Government scientist Robert Neville struggles to survive in a world where much of humanity has either been wiped out by biological warfare or they have been transformed into nocturnal creatures hell-bent on having him killed, with Neville possibly being the last normal human left on the planet.

In 1954, Richard Matheson published his novel I Am Legend, a chilling work about the last surviving human in a world overrun with vampires. It’s an influential novel that has left a long legacy, with it helping to inspire the modern zombie genre, with the late zombie king George A. Romero citing the book as an influence on his debut film Night of the Living Dead.

The novel itself has been adapted to film several times with various degrees of success, most recently in 2007 with

First Trailer for Mathieu Turi's Post-Apocalyptic Creature Film 'Hostile'

"My name is Juliette, and I survived the apocalypse. You think I'm lucky? You're wrong." A trailer has debuted for an intriguing post-apocalyptic creature feature titled Hostile, the feature directorial debut of French filmmaker Mathieu Turi. Not to be confused with the Christian Bale western Hostiles, this one is about a woman who is the lone survivor of an apocalypse and ends up crashing her truck driving around. She wakes up at night, and must battle strange creatures that roam the wastelands in the dark. The cast includes Grégory Fitoussi, Javier Botet , Jay Benedict, and David Gasman. This kind of looks like I Am Legend if it was set in a dusty wasteland instead of the city. This actually looks pretty good. Check it out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Mathieu Turi's Hostile, direct from YouTube: Juliette (Brittany Ashworth), a lone survivor of an apocalyptic era, fights to survive against hunger,

‘Flatliners’ is All Too Accurate: Why Remakes Are Some of the Riskiest Movies to Make

‘Flatliners’ is All Too Accurate: Why Remakes Are Some of the Riskiest Movies to Make
This weekend brings the remake of “Flatliners,” Joel Schumacher’s 1990 thriller that starred Julia Roberts. Reviews are universally terrible for this retread of good-looking med-school students who put life-after-death on repeat, but it was a nail-biter for studio Sony Pictures from the outset: They took the risk of making an honest-to-god remake.

A remake sounds like the safest bet there is; isn’t original, untested IP the thing that studios fear most? However, in this market a true remake is what passes for a gamble. They’ve become a box-office rarity.

While none of this year’s top-grossing films are originals, there are very few genuine remakes. Yes, the year’s biggest movie, “Beauty and the Beast,” is a direct remake of the 1991 classic — but it went from animated to live action. (It was not a remake of the multiple live-action films and TV shows that preceded it, which stretch

A New Phase of Horror: Close-Up on "Night of the Living Dead"

  • MUBI
Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. George A. Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) is playing October 1 - 31, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Prelude to Halloween.For all of its social and cinematic influence, its current notoriety as the granddaddy of the contemporary zombie movie (and television show and comic book and videogame), George A. Romero’s 1968 debut, Night of the Living Dead, was a remarkably unassuming production. Shot in mid- through late-1967 on a budget of around $114,000, with a cast and crew of unknown actors and amateur locals, the film went on to accumulate an international gross of more than $30 million, setting the standard for a progressively popular horror sub-genre in the process. One now marvels at its systematic structure, its discerning formal design, its clever manipulation of time and space, and its shrewd exploitation of generic conventions.

Fan-Made Tribute Pits It’s Pennywise Against The Clown Prince Of Crime

Pennywise and the Joker are undoubtedly two very different, yet equally terrifying clowns.

Indeed, It actor Bill Skarsgard has gone on record in the past to differentiate Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination from the Clown Prince of Crime, but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated fan from compiling a tribute video that pits Pennywise against DC’s cackling villain.

First spotted by the folks at ComicBook.com, YouTube user Mightyraccoon!, who knows a thing or two about brilliantly executed crossovers, has created a world in which the Joker from Rocksteady’s beloved Arkham series confronts Pennywise, and essentially presents a challenge to King’s otherworldly entity. If nothing else, it’s a neat piece of fan service, one that piggybacks on the incredible, record-breaking success of New Line and Andy Muschietti’s It reboot.

As of this writing, It and The Exorcist are currently neck-and-neck on the box office charts with around $230 million apiece – domestically,
