Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.25.15] Canada thriller

This much-buzzed French Canadian thriller from director Philippe Lesage is a contender for the Whistler Film Festival's Borsos Competition For Best Canadian Feature in the Canadian Vanguard section and the first French-language trailer certainly makes a case that The Demons is one to watch out for.

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 11.24.15] scifi thriller drama war

It's been a really long time since we've seen any updates about an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle." The last we heard, the project, a satire about the arms race which was first published in 1963, was being considered as a feature film but it looks like there's a different future in the cards for this adaptation and so far, it's looking like a great adapat...

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.24.15] Portugal drama

One of the much buzzed about titles coming out of Cannes this year was Miguel Gomes' three part Arabian Nights which has nothing to do with the classic tale beyond borrowing from its structure. [Continue reading]

John Connor [Celluloid 11.23.15] scifi horror

Alien fans are living through a funny time. As Ridley Scott explores his "prequel" movies, Neil Blomkamp forges ahead with his delayed, but-feels-inevitable, Alien movie which will apparently completely ignore Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.23.15] horror thriller

The Sundance Film Festival has announced the first films from their 2016 MIdnight line-up and the selection seems pretty stellar. Rob Zombie's new flick, Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers and the Elijah Wood produced The Greasy Strangler are all getting world premiers. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.23.15] scifi horror thriller

While Chronicles of Riddick had flashes of old fashioned space opera goodness, it was mostly a misstep in a series with two other pretty amazing entries in Pitch Black and Riddick. And even though the last film didn't exactly light the world on fire at the box office, it appears there's a lot more Furian story to tell. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Carlos Prime [Celluloid 11.23.15] documentary

In the past, one imagines it would have been life-changing to see through a telescope for the first time, or hear a combustion engine start up. The endless directions various minds take with technology are unpredictable and staggeringly clever. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.19.15] scifi thriller

The official teaser trailer for Hulu's original series adaptation of Stephen King's popular time travel novel, "11/22/63" has dropped and, as a fan of the book, I think it looks pretty great. The nine-hour limited event series premieres Presidents Day, Feb. 15, 2016, on Hulu. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.19.15] scifi thriller

In a film inspired by early Spielberg and the sci-fi spirit of the early 80s, Jeff Nichols' new film, Midnight Special, sees Michael Shannon and Kirsten Dunst as father and mother of a very powerful boy who go on the run when they discover just how special he really is. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

New York Times best-selling author and four-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award, Nancy Holder, tackles the novelization of Guillermo del Toro's sumptuous and supernatural Gothic romance, Crimson Peak. Whether you've seen the film, or not, Holder's prose brings a whole new dimension to de Toro's and Mathew Robbins' screenplay. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.19.15] action thriller history

We've seen a ton of viking movies lately (which I'm totally down with), but Andrey Kravchuk's upcoming Russian epic Viking may have just thrown down the gauntlet in terms of bringing a truly epic vision to the screen. [Continue reading (2 comments)]

We're over a year away from the release of A Monster Calls but that's not stopping the studio from giving us a first glimpse at their upcoming fantasy. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.18.15] post apocalyptic scifi action thriller

Written and directed by Angelo Lopes, Wastelander looks to be a glorious throwback to all the great desert PA flicks of that followed on the heels of George Miller's Road Warrior. As you can see from the behind the scenes still below, the film, which is currently in post-production, has been rendering with great attention to detail, particularly in the prop and costum...

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.17.15] action thriller fantasy adventure

I can't help but think that everyone involved with Gods of Egypt, from director Alex Proyas (who was once great but has now made more terrible movies than good ones) to the entire cast, and even the studio heads who gave this the green light, are in on some big joke where the audience is the punch line. There is no other explanation for how absolutely terrible this lo... [Continue reading (8 comments)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.17.15] book cartoon scifi horror comic

In space, no one can hear you clean. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.16.15] scifi thriller adventure

It almost seems inevitable that even the most erudite and eccentric filmmakers come full circle to create a film that evokes their childlike love of film. And if you haven't checked out Nichols oeuvre, just forget Mud and check out both Shotgun Stores and Take Shelter. Yes, we are excited. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.16.15] scifi horror

20th Century Fox has officially announced Ridley Scott's return to the universe he created in Alien with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Cathode Ray Mission 11.12.15] post apocalyptic scifi

In a move no one saw coming because of the movie's poor box office performance in North America, Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer will get a second life – as a TV show. [Continue reading (5 comments)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.12.15] action thriller fantasy adventure

Did you know Alex Proyas has a new film coming out this year? I think I did, but I forgot, and now I wish I could go back to forgetting because these posters for the fantasy film titled Gods of Egypt are very disheartening. [Continue reading (6 comments)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.12.15] Ethiopia post apocalyptic scifi cult

A post-apocalyptic, surrealist science-fiction romance from Ethiopia is not something one comes across every day, but on November 3, IndiePix Films will release CRUMBS to DVD; its release on all digital platforms follows on November 17. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.12.15] thriller crime

Marilyn Manson is virtually unrecognizable as a troubled hit man in Let Me Make You a Martyr, a film that looks and sounds like an instant indie crime classic. A cerebral revenge film about two adopted siblings who fall in love, and hatch a plan to kill their abusive father, the film looks to be a throwback to crime films of the 90s. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.10.15] Australia thriller

It has been a long time coming but two years after we first saw a teaser trailer for One Eyed Girl, Nick Matthews' thriller will finally be seen in outside the festival circuit in North America. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.10.15] horror thriller drama

Tara Subkoff is a woman of many talents. Her acting career took off in the mid-90s and after a few memorable performances, she turned her attention to fashion and art but recently, Subkoff has found herself returning to the world of movies, this time as a writer-director. [Continue reading]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.10.15] cult western

Arrow Video US's second Spaghetti Western release is Carlo Lizzani's Requiescant, a film I was previously unfamiliar with but was extremely impressed by (particularly after being disappointed by Cemetery Without Crosses). It's also a film that Alex Cox called the “one film to prove that the Italian Western was not solely Sergio Leone’s”. [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.07.15] scifi thriller

Seeing the words “Syfy Films” at the beginning of a trailer does not inspire admiration if anything, it makes me cringe in advance of what's coming so you can imagine my surprise when, for some reason, I kept watching the trailer for 400 Days and discovered that it actually looks pretty great. [Continue reading (3 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.07.15] action fantasy adventure

Earlier this week we posted a sneak peek at the upcoming Warcraft movie and we were pretty optimistic. The visuals looked great, the movie has a great cast including Travis Fimmel, Ben Foster, Paula Patton, Domonic Cooper and Robert Kosinsky among others and the entire thing is directed by Dunca Jones, a guy who has loads of cred. Earlier today the trailer drops and..... [Continue reading (8 comments)]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.06.15] Canada apocalyptic scifi drama

The family's distance from town means that for the first few days, life continues on as if nothing were wrong and the power will come on at any time but when the trio travels into town for supplies, it becomes clear that not everyone is taking the power outage in stride. The grocery store is nearly empty of food, some are gathering their belongings and leaving town ... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.06.15] scifi action adventure

So you thought the last trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the last did you? Nope, a new international trailer has dropped and it's chock full of previously unseen footage. While some of us - *coughs* Marina *coughs* - refuse to watch any footage, others of us are lapping it up with a biscuit. [Continue reading]
