    "Oka!" - "A New African Action Adventure" - Gets Theatrical Release + New Trailer

    Aargh! I certainly didn't expect to exit a screening of Lars Von Trier's latest exercise in misery (Melancholia, which I'm still trying to reach some conclusion on, and will review later) to find this on my virtual desk.

    The Essentials: The Films Of Claude Chabrol

    Looking at the core French New Wave movement in broad strokes, you essentially get five Cahiers Du Cinéma critics-turned-filmmakers: Jean-Luc Godard, the all-you-need-is-a-gun-and-a-woman, pop-cinema deconstructionist turned oblique radical; François Truffaut, the humanist with an affinity for child...

    'Monster' Director Patty Jenkins May Wield The Hammer & Helm 'Thor 2'

    So, what the fuck? Granted, Marvel's choices for directors can often be surprising -- Ang Lee? Kenneth Branagh? -- but for the most part they usually see something in the helmers that others don't.

    Trailer Watch: Long-form Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Looks Good, Lacks Edge

    David Fincher's long form trailer for December 21's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is here, and it's a testament to just how good the teaser trailer is (also below). In this case, less is more, with emphasis on how instead of what. The new trailer reveals practically the entire plot (which many of us know well by now, anyway), as well as Rooney Mara's Swedish accent and her lack of Noomi Rapace intensity. Sure, she looks the part, but we're still on the fence. We aren't as impressed as ThePlaylist, but it does look significantly more polished than the Swedish version of the novel. We can't wait to experience this feel bad movie of Christmas ...
