Update: David Lynch is not retiring from filmmaking

35 minutes ago

David Lynch is returning to the town of Twin Peaks this month, having directed all eighteen episodes of Showtime’s revival of his cult 90s series, but if you were hoping he might follow this up by getting back behind the camera for another feature film, we have some bad news for you

Asked by The Sydney Morning Herald whether 2006’s Inland Empire will prove to be his last film, Lynch responded:

“Yes it is. Things changed a lot. So many films were not doing well at the box office even though they might have been great films and the things that were doing well at the box office weren’t the things that I would want to do.”

Update: It seems that Lynch has not called time on features after all, with the filmmaker revealing at the Cannes premiere of Twin Peaks that: “My remarks have been misrepresented. I »

Adam Driver avoided Mark Hamill on Star Wars: The Last Jedi

39 minutes ago

For those awaiting Star Wars: The Last Jedi, many are anticipating the potential reunion between exiled Jedi Luke Skywalker and his former protege Kylo Ren, played by Mark Hamill and Adam Driver respectively. Star Wars: The Force Awakens revealed that, much like his grandfather before him, Kylo Ren turned to the dark side and destroyed Luke’s new generation of Jedi. If they come face-to-face in The Last Jedi, the reunion would be awkward to say the least.

In Vanity Fair‘s piece on The Last Jedi, Hamill and Driver reveal they rarely spoke or saw each other outside of the set because Driver was committed to playing the part of an angry, bitter student. He’s known for his method acting in films and took the role seriously.

“There’s big personal things that I find about every character, not just in Star Wars, that you have to make as personal as possible, »

Comic Book Review – Wonder Woman #23

1 hour ago

Ricky Church reviews Wonder Woman #23…

“The Truth” part five! The conclusion to Diana’s search for the truth takes her on a journey into darkness. But the price of understanding may be one sacrifice too many for Wonder Woman…

With Wonder Woman #23 comes the conclusion to ‘The Truth’, edging us that much closer to Greg Rucka’s finale of his run. The issue wasn’t quite as action packed as I thought it might have been, but that actually works in its favour. Rucka subverts expectations by having the conflict boil down to a much more quiet affair between Wonder, Ares and his sons. It was also racked with emotion as some characters said farewell and Diana discovered the full extent of the deception on her.

The conversation between Wonder Woman, Veronica and Ares shed a lot of light on Rucka’s run. It was well written and the answers »

Hugh Jackman shares his thoughts on recasting Wolverine

1 hour ago

Now that Hugh Jackman has hung up the claws following the release of Logan, the actor has been chatting to Collider about the eventual recasting Wolverine, and how he would go about rebooting the fan favourite mutant.

“I think one thing we’ve learned: when X-Men started, it was pretty revolutionary,” said Jackman. “Like the comic book itself, I think there was an element of breaking conventions, of opening up in the concentration camp with a character, was not what people expected. I think X-Men has always been about asking questions, challenging norms and asking what’s going on. I’m not saying we’ve done that always, but I definitely think the spirit of Logan is in a way a reboot of that desire to keep taking risks and to ask more difficult questions, and to go deeper within the characters. In an irreverent way, it’s exactly what Deadpool did too. »

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins on her exit from Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World

2 hours ago

We’re just a week away from the release of the DC Extended Universe blockbuster Wonder Woman, which sees director Patty Jenkins becoming the first female filmmaker to helm a movie with a budget in excess of $100 million. However, Jenkins could have taken that honour back in 2013, had she not chosen to depart Marvel Studios’ own superhero project Thor: The Dark World.

Speaking to Uproxx, Jenkins revealed why she decided to step away from the Marvel sequel:

“I don’t think I could have made a good movie out of Thor 2 because I wasn’t the right director,” said Jenkins. “And I don’t think I would have been in the running for Wonder Woman as a result. And that’s one of the reasons why I’m glad I didn’t do it. Because I could have made a great Thor if I could have done the story that I was wanting to do. »

WWE release Cm Punk match, Cm Punk $1M wrestling return update – WrestleTalk News

2 hours ago

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

The great thing about having kids is that You Can Force Your Prejudices And Lifelong Agendas On Them.

So it’s no surprise Karl Anderson is indoctrinating his son early, teaching him how to perform a Swanton Bomb and a Splash on a John Cena cuddly toy:

John Cena has been the company-fronting babyface that fans have loved to hate for over a decade. In comparison, Roman Reigns is only just beginning that magical journey. The Big Dawg celebrated his 32nd birthday yesterday. Which means he has at least 18 more Wrestlemania main events in him.

If he’s really successful, he could become a part-timer, and wrestle a finally returning Cm Punk at Wrestlemania 50 in 2034…no, you’re right. That most definitely isn’t happening.

Not in WWE, at least!

5 Cult TV Shows That Deserve A Reboot

3 hours ago

Ben Robins with 5 cult TV shows that deserve a reboot…

Despite something of a critical bollocking, Dwayne Johnson’s tongue-in-cheek Baywatch reboot is set to take on a huge portion of the summer box office takings. And considering that it’s very much following in the footsteps of similar cult TV reboot success stories like 21 Jump Street, it proves that there’s definitely a market for all those other giants of the small screen, quietly waiting in the wings, ready to take that final big leap into blockbuster territory. In fact, there’s so many of these already in active development, that this feature got more and more difficult to research as it went along, with all of the best ideas seemingly already snatched up.

So, from that other well-known Hasselhoff project, to some straight-up risky bids, here’s a collection of potential big money reboots that we could see »

Critical Thinking: Why Do People Care So Much About Canon?

3 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on canon…

Movies are such an integral part of the creative experience. As children, when we’re first introduced to the medium, we don’t understand the complexities of cinema. We are simply awed by the amalgamation of vision and sound that brings us stories in a new and exciting way. It is the ultimate expression of the imagination. As kids we don’t understand that the cinematic experience is also providing us with a framework and rules to the storytelling process. The structure and architecture of cinema is slowly and subtly woven into our consciousness. We learn the rules without ever knowing we’re being taught.

I mention structure and framework because the cinematic experience is crafted in specific ways, even though these boundaries could be easily abandoned. We, the audience are willing to accept a certain amount of structure, coloring in the lines as it were, »

Movie Review – The Hippopotamus (2017)

5 hours ago

The Hippopotamus, 2017.

Directed by John Jencks.

Starring Tim McInnerny, Roger Allam, Matthew Modine, Emily Berrington, Russell Tovey, and Lyne Renee.

Synopsis:

Out of luck, out of cash and recently sacked theatre critic Ted Wallace (Roger Allam) has a chance encounter with relative Jane Swann. Creatively bereft and in need of money Wallace agrees to investigate goings on at Swafford Manor, where past indiscretions, present day revelations and talk of miracles all come home to roost.

Adapted from a novel of the same name, The Hippopotamus takes murder mystery tropes, keeps the mystery, substitutes murder and gives us a gloriously odious washed up poet Poirot to reckon with. Roger Allam’s Ted Wallace is pompously appealing from the first frame, lacing his cyanide dipped voiceover with luxuriant expletives, intellectual entitlement and an abundant surplus of vulgar vocabulary.

His is an endless life of empty whiskey bottles, venal verbiage and intolerance for »

The latest issue of Vanity Fair has offered up plenty of juicy Star Wars details; we’ve had a rather splendid batch of character images from December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi [see here], confirmation from Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy that the next Anthology movie will be decided in June [see here], and comments from Mark Hamill as to how he would have changed Han Solo’s death scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens [see here].

Well, we now have a small nugget of information on the final chapter of the Sequel Trilogy, with the outlet reporting that principal photography on Colin Trevorrow’s Star Wars: Episode IX is set to commence in January 2018. it had previously been reported that filming would begin this summer, although it’s unclear whether that was pure speculation, or if Lucasfilm has pushed back the production due to the death of Carrie Fisher, who was originally slated to »

This film could be not more timely and relevant for audiences.”

Movie Review – Baywatch (2017)

6 hours ago

Baywatch, 2017.

Directed by Seth Gordon.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Jon Bass.

Synopsis:

A washed-up Olympic swimmer finds himself teaming up with a squad of elite lifeguards to uncover an international drug smuggling plot and save the beach they’re sworn to protect.

Try as it might to emulate the formula of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s ultra-successful big-screen 21 Jump Street reboot franchise, the decidedly less-canny Baywatch lands with a shrug of indifference, despite the solid efforts of a well-matched cast.

The plot here matters about as much as it did in the original TV series, and to that end is suitably forgettable; larger-than-life lifeguard Mitch Buchannon (Dwayne Johnson) is seeking three new recruits for his elite lifeguard unit known as Baywatch. The successful applicants end up being arrogant Olympic gold medalist Matt Brody (Zac Efron), the smart and resourceful »
