‘Men,’ the New Film from Director Alex Garland, Has Begun Production With Jessie Buckley Starring

After his directorial debut Ex Machina turned heads in 2015, writer/director Alex Garland returned three years later with Annihilation, a mesmerizing and profound sci-fi film that unsettled and moved audiences in equal measure. He headed to television with last year’s ambitious Hulu series Devs, but now he’s coming back to the big screen with Men, a new film that has now officially begun production. The great Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Chernobyl) is playing the le...

An exotic dancer's Twitter odyssey is now a feature film

Like many of you, I was enthralled by #TheStory. Unfolding over the course of 148 tweets, this was a batshit crazy first-person account of an epic saga between a black woman dancer named "Zola" (our fearless narrator) and a skinny white girl Hooters customer named Jessica who invites her on a road trip to work a club in Florida. — Read the rest

Steven Yeun and Ali Wong Starring in New Series From A24

Steven Yeun is sticking with A24. The actor just scored a well-deserved Oscar nomination for his role in the A24-released film Minari, and now he’s set to star in a new series from the hot indie studio. There are almost no details about the show at the moment, but we know that Yeun will star along with Ali Wong, and that Lee Sung Jin, a writer and producer on the FX series Dave, is the creator-writer-showrunner.

Florence Pugh Gives a Behind-the-Scenes Peek at the Harrowing ‘Midsommar’ Breakdown Scene

Does Midsommar have a happy ending for Florence Pugh‘s Dani…or a tragic one? Has she finally found a community that can absorb and accept her grief…or is she trapped in a weird, murderous cult? Everyone has different readings for Ari Aster‘s Midsommar (I fall in the former), but one undeniable fact is that Dani’s climactic breakdown, in which she witnesses a terrible thing involving her boyfriend Christian (Jack Reynor) and falls into a collective bout of weeping and wailing with the other wome...

‘Minari’ Featurette Digs into the Heart and Struggle of the American Dream

Minari appears to be on the path to the Academy Awards. The film received a nomination from the Producers Guild of America Awards and director Lee Isaac Chung was among the feature film nominees for the Directors Guild of America Awards, both strong indicators of a movie’s potential presence at the Oscars. Even the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominated the entire cast for their equivalent of Best Picture. To help push the movie in front of more Academy members and get audiences to seek it out, A...

How ‘The Vigil’ and ‘Saint Maud’ Use Horror to Explore the Nexus Between Religion, Trauma, and Mental Health

Being alone indoors is a common facet of pandemic life, but in The Vigil and Saint Maud, it’s also a recipe for religious horror. These two films, which recently hit VOD and streaming, bend in opposite directions yet are cut from the same cloth. Both have first-time writer-directors at the helm and both are distributed by indie-horror labels (IFC Midnight and A24, respectively). Moreover, both center on an isolated individual who comes to believe that a supernatural force is reaching out to the...

‘Minari’ Clips: Lee Isaac Chung’s Great New Film is Now On Demand

Technically, Minari is a 2020 movie – which is why we had it on our list of the Best Films of 2020. But the rollout of the movie has been a little weird, and it didn’t reach On Demand until today. But now that it’s available for all to see, I can’t recommend Minari enough. It’s a quiet-but-powerful movie that pulls you into its story of a Korean immigrant family trying to make the American dream a reality. Several clips from the film have found their way online to coincide with the On Demand re...

‘Disappointment Blvd.’: Ari Aster Directing Joaquin Phoenix in New Film From A24

Ari Aster and Joaquin Phoenix are teaming up for Disappointment Blvd., a title that’s coming from Aster’s buddies over at A24. The indie distributor pumped out Aster’s Hereditary and Midsommar, so it makes sense that the director would want to stick with them. We don’t know much about the title just yet, but the official word is that it’ll be a “decades-spanning portrait of one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time.” Aster has dropped several hints about what his new movie might be a...

‘The Whale’: ‘Watchmen’ and ‘Homecoming’ Actress Hong Chau Cast in Darren Aronofsky’s Next Film

Hong Chau is about to star in a whale of a movie. The actress, who recently appeared in the Amazon drama series Homecoming and HBO’s highly acclaimed limited series Watchmen, is the latest performer to join The Whale cast for director Darren Aronofsky. This will be his first film since 2017’s divisive mother! – which, for the record, is fantastic.

A24 Sets ‘Minari’ On Demand Release Date in Late February

If you read a handful of “best of the year” lists as 2020 was coming to a close, chances are probably pretty high that you saw director Lee Isaac Chung‘s Minari pop up multiple times. The beloved drama has been winning hearts since premiering at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the Grand Jury prize and the U.S. Dramatic Audience Awards, and now we finally know when the film will be making its way to VOD.

The Tragedy of Macbeth, Joel Coen‘s first movie without brother Ethan, doesn’t have a release date yet, but here’s hoping we can see it this year. As we wait for some sort of release announcement (and a trailer, please?), we now have some news: the film was shot in black-and-white by cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel. This is news that will no doubt make some cinephiles (like me, for instance) start watering at the mouth. Let us see this movie, damn it! Macbeth has been covered on the big scre...

‘Ex Machina’ Director Alex Garland’s New A24 Movie Eyes Jessie Buckley for Lead Role
