2018 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy

  • ioncinema
Assuredly becoming a hot ticket director with the launch of 2010’s Beyond the Black Rainbow – a debut film we called “a nightmarish world that’s aggravating, hypnotic, and original,” Canuck Panos Cosmatos (a 25 featured Filmmaker Magazine folk) paced himself and took his time in selecting his sophomore effort.

Filmmakers Panos Cosmatos, Abner Pastoll, Joachim Lafosse and Jacques Audiard Win Investment

Belgium's Wallimage has awarded four filmmakers significant project investment in the company's highly competitive 85th year of helping to bolster its local film industry. Two genre films in particular have caught our attention with Wallimage's support becoming a crucial vote of confidence for the projects that are both currently in development. The first is Mandy, the second feature film by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow), starring Nicolas Cage, which is set to film this summer in Belgium. The second is the upcoming Irish thriller A Good Woman Is Hard to Find directed by Abner Pastoll (Road Games), who is working with Frakas following their success with Raw. A Good Woman, described by Wallimage as "Ken Loach meets Tarantino", recently cast Sarah Bolger and was written...

Nicolas Cage seeks revenge against a religious sect in action thriller Mandy

According to Deadline, Nicolas Cage has signed on to star in the action thriller Mandy, which is being directed by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow).

Set to begin production this summer in Belgium, the film takes place in 1983 and will see Cage as Red Miller, a broken and haunted man out for revenge against an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.

“Panos is one of the most vital young filmmakers alive, a pop-culture Kubrick in the making,” said Daniel Noah of SpectreVision. “Nicolas Cage is a veritable god to those of us who grew up watching his classic performances. Bringing these two together for this surrealist, heavy-metal-soaked story of battle axes and demon bikers is unfathomably exciting to us.”

Cage has several projects incoming this year, including The Humanity Bureau, Mom and Dad, Looking Glass and Inconceivable. He is also currently in production on the

Nicholas Cage joins the cast of heavy metal revenge movie Mandy from Panos Cosmatos

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Even though Nicholas Cage has made some really dubious choices in projects to appear in, he has also made a fair few cracking ones too. Confirmation has just come through that Cage will be starring in Mandy, an action thriller from Beyond the Black Rainbow helmer, Panos Cosmatos.

The new project, which is due to start filming this summer in Belgium is set in the primal wilderness of 1983, where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life and is being described as “Heavy Metal Story of Demon Bikers”

“Panos is one of the most vital young filmmakers alive, a pop-culture Kubrick in the making,” said Noah, SpectreVision’s Head of Development. “Nicolas Cage is a veritable god to those of us who grew up watching his classic performances.

‘Beyond the Black Rainbow’ Director Returns with Nicolas Cage-Led ‘Mandy’

If you’ve ever wanted to see Nicolas Cage battle demon bikers (and let’s be honest, you have), then you’re in luck. Per Deadline, Cage will star in Mandy, from Beyond the Black Rainbow director Panos Cosmatos, to be released by SpectreVision, Xyz Films & Umedia. The brief official plot synopsis sounds like something akin to Death Wish meets The Wicker Man (both the original and the Nicolas Cage version with the bees) :

Mandy is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.

SpectreVision Head of Development Daniel Noah describes the film as a “surrealist, heavy-metal-soaked story of battle axes and demon bikers,” which sounds right up Cage’s alley. Cosmatos, whose last film was one of the best sci-fi features of the century thus far, has described his next

Newswire: Nicolas Cage’s new project sounds pretty great, honestly

  • The AV Club
In recent years, Nicolas Cage has taken on roles with the same wild-eyed gusto with which he grabbed that choir singer’s butt in the opening sequence of Face/Off. And as one might expect, that sort of unfocused energy doesn’t always result in cinematic gold. His newest project sounds downright inspired, though: As Deadline reports, Cage has signed on to star in Mandy, the new film from director Panos Cosmatos, whose Beyond The Black Rainbow our own Alison Willmore called “a giddy drug-trip of a movie.” Cage will play Red Miller, “a broken and haunted man [who] hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life” in the “primal wilderness of 1983.”

Mandy is being produced by SpectreVision—the imprint co-owned by actor Elijah Wood that was behind A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night and The Greasy Strangler—along with Xyz Films, which recently ...

Mandy: (Battle Axes + Demon Bikers + Nicolas Cage) x Panos Cosmatos = Take Our Money!

News from Deadline this morning is that Beyond the Black Rainbow's Panos Cosmatos will be giving to us a piece of cinematic (black) magic, maybe delivered by the gods, or demons, we do not really care as this point.    Why? Cosmatos is currently in pre-production on a new film called Mandy. It will star Nicolas Cage in a story described as, "...heavy-metal-soaked story of battle axes and demon bikers". I have also seen elsewhere someone involved with the production say that when Cosmatos submitted the screenplay he said, "...imagine Nordic mythology by way of heavy metal van art".   Mandy is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the...

5 Great Science Fiction Movies to Watch Instead of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

5 Great Science Fiction Movies to Watch Instead of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’
There’s no question that hordes of people will swarm to theaters to see “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” on opening weekend, and most of them will get their money’s worth — it’s yet another visually dazzling comic space opera about intergalactic heroes trading banter in their meandering quest to save the universe. Writer-director James Gunn was already onboard to direct a third entry before this one hit theaters, a signal that this vibrant formula works really well for a lot of people. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm for a big, flashy blockbuster like “Guardians” has the power to overwhelm everything else out there, and drown out memories of other first-rate science fiction storytelling from recent years that still deserves a larger audience. Here are a few of them worth checking out this weekend. Trust us — “Guardians” will be there next weekend, too.

The Void review

There's a lot of buzz surrounding 80s throwback horror film The Void, but is it actually worth your time?

The horror scene is currently littered with filmmakers who grew up with classic 80s horror movies. I’m old enough to remember the era (super old) and those films got about as much respect from your more discerning audience as the present horror influx does, i.e. basically none; but it’s still acceptably cool to like old horror movies - they’ve had the time to earn it.

A Full Trailer Emerges from The Void!

I had the opportunity to see the The Void early (watch for a full review from Jason later this month) and I can attest to the film's strengths as a psychotropic, Lovecraftian horror film up there with From Beyond or Beyond the Black Rainbow. Canada's Jeremy Gillespie & Steven Kostanski (part of the Astron-6 team) continue to impress.

The Void hits Us Theaters & VOD on April 7, 2017 from Screen Media Films.

When police officer Carter (Aaron Poole) discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hosp [Continued ...]

Another New UK Teaser for Nicolas Winding Refn's 'The Neon Demon'

"I am dangerous." This film looks crazy! But I'm excited to see it. Like some kind of wicked mix of Beyond the Black Rainbow and Suspiria with a dash of Elle Fanning. After it was announced that Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon will be world premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this year, Amazon Studios dropped the first official teaser trailer. Now Icon Films in the UK has followed up with their brief 30-second teaser for The Neon Demon and it's quite different. There's a weird symbol that pops up on screen every few seconds, plus more violence and eerie imagery and other creepy women. There's a shot of Keanu Reeves. And there's some nudity, so don't watch this one at work. Compare it to the first Us trailer here and enjoy. Here's the alternate UK teaser for Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon, direct from Icon's

RogerEbert.com‘s Steve Erickson on the current state of foreign-language film distribution:

There’s no end to the essays by baby-boomers recalling the golden age of art cinema from the ‘50s to the ‘70s, many of them proclaiming the death of the movies in the present day. I was born in 1972, so I missed out on personally experiencing this arthouse heyday; my earliest exposure to world cinema came in the late ‘80s, when its Us distribution was at an unprecedented nadir.

Revoltin’ Reviews: Darling, Blood Of The Tribades, Insane, Seven Dorms Of Death, and More!
I don’t know what the hell is in the air, but suddenly e’ery Tom, Dick (heh), and Scary has sent me fright flicks by the dozens… #shutupstupiditsfreemovies

Darling

• Release Date: In Theaters April 1st

• Written By: Mickey Keating

• Directed By: Mickey Keating

• Starring: Lauren Ashley Carter, Brian Morvant, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden

I really, Really love when our beloved horror biz goes and gets itself all artsy and experimental. Give me a Beyond The Black Rainbow over yet another tired 80s slasher throwback any damn day. Well, to that end, I have a real doozy of a flick in front of my eerie eyeballs today: a stylish lil’ number called Darling.

Darling starts out like a throwback to the Gothic thriller genre: a young, seemingly naïve woman comes to find herself as the caretaker of an aged grande manse (this one happens to be located in Manhattan), and of course,

What Happened with Late Nite Grindhouse and What is to Become of it?

Because I’m a fan of musical accompaniment in storytelling, I’d recommend hitting play on the track below to accompany your reading.

Hopefully, if you are reading this, you know about our Late Nite Grindhouse program. Late Nite Grindhouse was a crazy idea I had of solely showing horror, cult and genre cinema theatrically at midnight. Being located in St. Louis, Missouri was a tough thing for a film fanatic of genre cinema. I would see theaters in major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles and New York or a college town like Austin, Texas – courtesy of the terrific Alamo Drafthouse – get these great repertory films that would show theatrically. I wanted in on that. I figured, that I would work with a theater that shared the same dream I had of celebrating film. Granted, I wanted to show a specific type of film but I was also wanting to build a community.

Interview: Jacob Gentry, Aj Bowen, Chad McKnight & Scott Poythress on Synchronicity

  • DailyDead
Arriving in theaters and on VOD platforms everywhere this weekend is Jacob Gentry’s Synchronicity, which reunites the director with Chad McKnight, Aj Bowen and Scott Poythress—three co-stars from his first genre effort, The Signal. This time around, McKnight stars as a scientist who has invented a machine that can create a wormhole, and both Bowen and Poythress play his wisecracking labmates who help the film’s hero put all of the intricate pieces of Synchronicity’s puzzle into place.

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to catch up with Gentry, Bowen, McKnight and Poythress at the press day for Synchronicity and discussed with them their experiences reuniting for another cinematic adventure and so much more.

I think it's really ambitious when you can make a movie like Synchronicity because when you think sci-fi, a lot of folks automatically think “big concepts that usually require a big budget.” And this movie,

Meet Me There

• Release Date: Available June 23rd on DVD

• Written By: Brandon Stroud, Destiny D Talley (story)

• Directed By: Lex Lybrand

• Starring: Lisa Friedrich, Micheal Foulk, Dustin Runnels

Meet Me There is the kind o’ rippin’ yarn that grabs ya from the first scene (and what a doozy that scene is… think a condensed version of Planes, Trains, And Automobiles except with a lot more double suicide), and doesn’t let go until the very end (yet the marks it leaves linger for a bit).
