    Comic-Con '11: Francis Ford Coppola Uses iPad To Remix 'Twixt' Live & Plans To Tour The Film

    Francis Ford Coppola Reveals He's Already At Work On A New Script & Says He Doesn't Like 3D Glasses For A Whole FilmReturning to Comic-Con for the first time nearly two decades after he hit San Diego to stump for "Bram Stoker's Dracula," director Francis Ford Coppola made sure it was an event to remember. In what will likely be one of the most talked about presentations when everyone wakes up in a geek hangover on Monday, Coppola unveiled footage from his upcoming gothic horror flick "Twixt," but in an interesting twist that set Twitter on fire, he edited and shaped footage on the fly using an app on his iPad. Though there were some technical...

    When Celebrated Directors Lose The Plot: Interesting Left Turns And Failures In An Auteur's Oeuvre

    Even the greatest of auteurs in cinema generally take one or two big missteps in their careers, either early on -- as happened to a lot of the Easy Riders/Raging Bulls generation of American filmmakers, bringing their hirsute hubris down to earth with a bump -- or later, when poor judgement and a degree of fossilisation can cloud a director’s vision -- see Quentin Tarantino’s remarks, for example, about not wanting to be a "geriatric" filmmaker, making films deep into his old age because this is when filmmakers generally lose their mojo, or Steven Soderbergh’s early retirement plans, which he hopes will see him...

    Book Review: 'Shock Value' Is The Must-Read Film Book Of The Summer

    Much has been written about the film revolution that took place during the 1970’s – when the studio system crumbled in inconceivable ways and a brood of bold young filmmakers, most of them wily, many of them bearded, forever changed the landscape of the film industry. But far less has been written about the seismic shift in genre films during the same period. Thankfully, Jason Zinoman, a crack film writer for the New York Times (he did last weekend’s great John Carpenter profile), has come forward to present a compelling and well researched look at those films in “Shock Value: How a Few Eccentric Outsiders Gave Us Nightmares, Conquered Hollyw...

    Ten Dead Projects We'd Like To See Resurrected

    With John Hillcoat's 'The Promised Land' Back From The Dead, We Look At Other Films Currently In The Studio GravesLast year, pre-production was halted immediately on “The Wettest Country” -- aka John Hillcoat's "The Promised Land" starring Amy Adams, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, possibly Scarlett Johansson, Michael Shannon, etc. -- potentially killing a film we were all very excited to see. But, stunningly, the film has found a new lease on life with the involvement of Tom Hardy (Hillcoat and LaBeouf are the only other principal talent that's back so far), warming our hearts considering since we were ready to cast it onto the pile o...
