Kontroll And Predators Director Returns Home With The Whiskey Bandit

It was back in 2003 that Hungarian director Nimrod Antal burst on to the international scene with his debut feature, Kontroll. A smart, slick title that was not at all what we'd been taught to expect from Eastern European cinema, Kontroll triggered a bit of a frenzy around Antal and Hollywood came calling. But while he tended to over deliver in the small to mid budget projects he was handed - Vacancy, Armored, Predators, Metallica Through The Never - the personality that caught so much attention in Antal's debut never quite came through in his Us efforts. Which means there is a certain amount of anticipation to see what Antal can do back in his native Hungary now that he has returned there for a...

Review: A Cure For Wellness is an Audacious Gothic Nightmare from Gore Verbinski

  • DailyDead
There is a level of audacity to Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness that I can’t help but admire. On paper, it’s not the type of film that generally gets a big studio push in this day and age, but yet, 20th Century Fox is going all out for Verbinski’s weirdly surreal exploration of the one thing none of us can escape—our mortality—and I dig that he once again takes an avant-garde route to give us a grandiose, epic gothic horror movie that wears its influences on its sleeves, yet at times feels like nothing we’ve ever experienced before.

If you distill Cure down to its basic elements, though, it’d be safe to say it feels like if Hammer Films did their own version of Shutter Island, but really, that only accounts for about 30% of what Verbinski achieves here. The bottom line is,

Kontroll And Predators Director Nimrod Antal Returns To Hungary For The Whiskey Robber

It was all the way back in 2003 that young Hungarian director Nimrod Antal burst on to the scene with Kontroll, a super stylish action-comedy-thriller hybrid revolving around subway workers in Budapest. The film marked Antal as a director to watch and, sure enough, Hollywood was watching and he's been working in English on this side of the ocean ever since with his Us career hitting its peak with the one two punch of the Robert Rodriguez produced Predators and 3D concert film Metallica Through The Never. But now he's headed home. Antal's next film will be his first Hungarian effort since Kontroll, a large scaled biopic of Attila Ambrus - a Hungarian born in Romania who requested asylum in Hungary in 1988 and launched...

'20 Feet from Stardom' closes out a two-year awards run with a Grammy
Last year's Oscar winner for Best Documentary Feature, "20 Feet From Stardom," has rounded out its long awards run beginning as a competition player way back at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival with a Grammy for Best Music Film. The doc, which won countless other prizes from critics and festivals last year, zipped past the competition including "Beyoncé & Jay Z: On the Run Tour," Coldplay's "Ghost Stories," "Metallica Through the Never" and Pink's "The Truth About Love Tour: Live from Melbourne." It was the only traditional feature documentary in the bunch so it's little surprise it stood out to voters. As previously reported, movie crossover winners at the Grammys this year included "Frozen's" hit track "Let It Go" and compilation soundtrack album, Pharrell's "Happy" from "Despicable Me 2" for Best Music Video, Glen Campbell's "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" for Best Country Song as well as Alexandre Desplat ("The

Don't 'let it go' yet: 'Frozen,' 'Gravity,' 'Gone Girl' among Grammy film and TV nods
Nearly all of this year's Grammy nominees have been announced, with album of the year contenders still to be unveiled tonight. Looking at the nominees for visual media — i.e. film and TV stuff — we have a mix of Oscar nominees and winners from last year and potential contenders for this year. Let's take a look… At the top, big ups to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for their "Gone Girl" score landing a nomination. It might be the best score of the year, in my opinion, and I'm crossing my fingers that the Academy's music branch is as cool as they were in 2010 for nominating "The Social Network." Also in there is "The Grand Budapest Hotel," one of a few scores from Alexandre Desplat in Oscar contention this season ("The Imitation Game" and "Unbroken" will be eligible for Grammys next year). Last year's Best Original Score Oscar winner Steven Price was nominated for "Gravity,

Melissa Leo and Toby Jones on how 'Wayward Pines' blurs the lines between film and TV
San Diego - Oscar-winner Melissa Leo is such a convincing actress that for a brief moment on the "Wayward Pines" press line at San Diego Comic-Con, she had me doubting whether I even knew where I really was. "I think the show is full of, like a lot of [M.] Night ]Shyamalan]'s work, you think who know you're talking to, but do you know who you're talking to?" said Leo ominously. "Do you even really know where you are?" Cue existential crisis. Thankfully, I recovered just enough to continue posing questions to Leo and her co-star Toby Jones about the upcoming Fox "event series," including whether shooting the filmmaker-driven show - which in addition to executive-producer Shyamalan features episodes helmed by such big-screen directors as Nimrod Antal ("Predators," "Metallica Through the Never") and Zal Batmanglij ("The East") - feels at times more like shooting a movie than a TV seris "In some ways yes,

Dane DeHaan Talks 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Meteoric Career (Trailers)

Dane DeHaan Talks 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' Meteoric Career (Trailers)
Moviegoers are starting to pick up on what Hollywood figured out long before reviews for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2": Dane DeHaan is going to be a movie star. Remember when theater-trained actress Jessica Chastain was first being cast in movie after movie? That's what's been happening to DeHaan, who is 28. In the past year he not only took on Harry Osborn in Marc Webb's big-studio sequel but eclipsed Daniel Radcliffe in "Kill Your Darlings," starred in heavy metal 3D flick "Metallica Through the Never" and played Ryan Gosling's son in Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond the Pines." He's done a lot for someone so young. DeHaan broke out in 2008 with the HBO series "In Treatment," as Jesse, one of therapist Gabriel Byrne's patients. He made his Broadway debut that same year with David Mamet's "American Buffalo." In 2010, DeHaan won an Obie for his performance Off-Broadway in "The Aliens.

Picturehouse Acquires You’Re Next Filmmakers’ New Film The Guest Starring Dan Stevens; Slated for Fall Release

  • Collider.com
The new film from You’re Next director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett will be coming to a theater near you this fall. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews, Picturehouse has picked up U.S. rights to The Guest for a fall release, marking the studio's second feature film release after making their debut with last year's Metallica Through the Never. The Guest stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as a soldier who befriends the family of a fallen comrade and becomes a threat to everyone around him when it turns out he may not be who he says he is. I caught the pic at Sundance and it’s a great 80’s throwback that’s kind of like a cross between Halloween and The Terminator. Stevens is excellent in a dark role that is the polar opposite of his Downton Abbey character, and Wingard and

"Metallica Through the Never" won for best "Motion Picture Documentary." 2. Smartphone Filmmaking: Over the last century, each generation of technology revolutionized filmmaking.

'Rush', 'Jackass: Bad Grandpa' and Metallica on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

Rush One of the better movies from 2013 arrives this week in the form of Ron Howard's Rush, but don't go in looking for too many special features, though I am curious in the "Real Story of Rush" described as an "in-depth" look at the true story that inspired the film, but for Hollywood "in-depth" might mean ten minutes. Either way, this is a film definitely worth owning and one of the few truly rewatchable movies from the last year.

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa I've heard it's funny and I do want to see it, I wonder if Netflix Instant will carry it, because I just can't imagine buying one of these Jackass movies. Once is enough.
