Why-Dont-You-Play-In-Hell.jpg

We haven’t yet had the pleasure of seeing Why Don’t You Play In Hell?, the new movie from Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono whose theatrical release is currently expanding around the country. However, the project’s synopsis is certainly intriguing:

There’s a war going on, but that won’t stop the inexperienced but eager wannabe film crew The F— Bombers from following their dreams of making the ultimate action epic. Ten years ago, yakuza mid-boss Ikegami led an assault against rival don Muto. Now, on the eve of his revenge, all Muto wants to do is complete his masterpiece, a feature film with his daughter in the starring role, before his wife is released from prison. And The F— Bombers are standing by with the chance of a lifetime: to film a real, live yakuza battle to the death… on 35mm!

Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away Sir Kenneth Branagh directed a new, live-action version of Cinderella. Well, technically, he made it in London last year. But this fresh, Disney-backed take on the beloved talewhich is released on March 13 next year does have what sounds like a fairytale cast, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as the Prince, Derek Jacobi as the King, Stellan Skarsgård as the King’s scheming adviser (is there really any other kind?), and Downton Abbey actress Lily James as Ella.

'David Lynch: The Unified Field' proves even without film, the director would have been a legend

Even if David Lynch had never crafted mind-bending, award-winning films like Blue Velvet or reinvented what television could be with Twin Peaks, he would still have made an indelible impression on the art world as a painter. Before he found his way to cinema, painting was his passion, and in 1965 Lynch moved to Philadelphia and enrolled at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in order to follow his muse. According to Lynch, there was something about the city and the people around him that triggered his boundless creativity and opened up a worldview that carries through his work to this day.

Though Lynch only lasted a year at PAFA, he credited the institution and its faculty with providing all manner of inspiration for his work. Now PAFA is returning the favor with David Lynch: The Unified Field, the first ever exhibition of Lynch’s paintings in the United States, which opened in September and runs through Jan. 11, 2015.

'They walk. They talk. They kill.' Director Stuart Gordon talks 'Dolls'

dolls-blu-ray

Stuart Gordon shot his first film, 1985’s much beloved gorefest Re-Animator, in Los Angeles but then decamped to Italy to shoot Dolls, his second movie and second terror tale. While there, Gordon was also taken down a peg, or 12, by a local craftsman. “They didn’t shoot sound in Italy, they weren’t used to that,” says Gordon, whose other directing credits include From Beyond, Castle Freak, and 2005’s William H. Macy-starring Edmond. “I remember there was one day when I was shooting something and there was a carpenter hammering in the background, working on another one of our setshammering and sawing. I said, ‘Please stop that.’ And he said, ‘Senor Fellini always lets me work when they’re shooting.’ I said, ‘Well, I’m not Fellini.’ And he said, ‘That’s for sure!”

Oh, hi Mark! Watch the trailer for cult film doc 'Room Full of Spoons'

Pretty soon there may be more films about cult movie The Room than people who actually saw the hilariously awful movie when it was originally released in 2003. We exaggerate—but not by much. James and Dave Franco are set to star in a big-screen adaptation of Room star Greg Sestero’s book The Disaster Artist while Sestero’s fellow cast member Robyn Paris recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a mockumentary called The Room Actors: Where Are They Now? And that’s not all! Grab your cutlery, folks, because a trailer for a real documentary about writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau’s passion project called Room Full of Spoons has just been released. You can check out the clip below.

First look: Kurt Russell saddles up in 'Bone Tomahawk'

The last time Kurt Russell signed on to appear in a Western the result was 1993’s Tombstone, a film which over time has acquired the reputation as a bona fide classic of the genre as well as one of the movies most quoted whenever poker players get together. (“I’m your huckleberry.”) So it’s hard not to get pretty rootin’-tootin’ excited about the news that, 21 years on, the Escape from New York star has once again saddled up for the just-wrapped Western, Bone Tomahawk.

'Refuge' director talks about his pandemic apocalypse movie

Refuge.jpg

In the new independent horror movie Refuge, Carter Roy, Amy Rutberg, and young actress Eva Grace Kellner play a family trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where the population has been almost entirely wiped out by disease. Given recent, panic-causing news events, the film could hardly be more topical. So what is it like to have made a movie about a global pandemic just as people are reaching for their face masks? “It’s incredibly coincidental that it’s peaking right now,” says Refuge director Andrew Robertson, whose film recently played the Toronto After Dark and L.A.-based Screamfest genre festivals. “It’s certainly not something that we would want to exploit. The particular nature of this extinction event just happens to be a plague. But there are so many other things that we have anxiety about: nuclear war, or asteroids hitting the earth, or climate change.” And a “Happy Halloween!” to you too, sir!

'The Babadook' director talks old-school horror

Horror directors these days seem to almost automatically genuflect before the altars of such ’70s and ’80s filmmakers as John Carpenter and Dario Argento. But writer-director Jennifer Kent sought inspiration from much older auteurs while crafting her debut film, the much-acclaimed, Sundance-screened, The Babadook. “I’ve watched everything, from Mario Bava to Dario Argento—all of those ‘70s guys, including John Carpenter, who I love,” she says. “But I feel very drawn also to the early stuff. There were directors in the ’20s and ’30s—Carl Dreyer, Fritz Lang—who were making films that were art and they just happened to be terrifying. I think somewhere along the way we denigrated the art form and horror really has become a dirty word. I think that’s a shame, because it’s really cinematic.”
