Pop Culture Imports: ‘Biutiful,’ ‘Kingdom,’ ‘Asterix & Obelix,’ Asian Horror Anthologies, and More

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.) With the Lunar New Year recently passing, it’s fitting that a lot of our picks for the best foreign movies and TV streaming this week are Asian properties. Whether it’s an enthralling zombie series set in medieval Korea, a kooky family comedy mixed with an LGBT romance, or an anthology series showcasing Asian folklore, we’re ringing the Year of the Pig in right. But not everything in thi...

Full ‘Birds of Prey’ Movie Title Revealed By Margot Robbie

From the moment Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn appeared in the first trailer for 2016’s Suicide Squad, it was clear Robbie was a perfect fit for the character. She’s one of the few brights spots in that total mess of a movie, so it’s no surprise Warner Bros. is bringing her back in Birds of Prey, a female-centric spin-off movie that sees Harley Quinn team up with characters like Black Canary and Huntress. Now Robbie has taken to Instagram to reveal the full Birds of Prey movie title, and…well, it...

The 10 Best Leonardo DiCaprio Movies

The 10 best Leonardo DiCaprio movies Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest movie stars of the last three decades. Getting his start early in Hollywood, the man simply known as Leo, showed he was headed for big things in his role as Arnie Grape in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. From his breakout success, DiCaprio has gone from teen heartthrob to serious actor to Oscar winner. His lack of an Oscar seemed criminal until his big break for the 2015 film The Revenant. His career has always led him...

Alejandro González Iñárritu Makes A Virtual-Reality Film About Refugees Meeting The U.S. Border Patrol

"Carne y Arena belongs to the same category of gallery-quality, conceptual installations as the Rain Room or the Museum of Ice Cream — but it's a world apart from either. It's an anti-spectacle: The piece can't be shared on Instagram, even though it is more immersive, and more substantive, than anything else in its class." […]

How ‘Pacific Rim’ Drew Me Into Guillermo del Toro’s World of Monsters

Guillermo del Toro is a celebrated filmmaker whose stock has only risen that much more since he won the Academy Award for Best Director earlier this month. Years before he won, del Toro already had a loyal following among cinephiles, with admirers of his output banging the drum loudly for him as a visionary director, a true auteur. But even after seeing Pan’s Labyrinth and his three comic book movies — Blade 2, Hellboy, and Hellboy: The Golden Army — I remained somewhat aloof about del Toro an...

Antonio Sanchez: Bad Hombre

For the past few years percussionist Antonio Sanchez has experimented with bigger visions. Following the massive success of his propulsive and maddening drum set contributions to the Birdman soundtrack, he's been able to pursue more ambitious projects of his volition. With a steep pedigree in jazz, notably his work with greats Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Gary Burton, Sanchez is no stranger to improvisation and developing ideas from abstract material. His previous release, The Meri...

Fictional Bad Games: what if they still rushed every hot movie to the NES in time for Christmas?

Robert Penney created a pixel-perfect animation of Stranger Things as a turn-of-the-1990s adventure game a la Secret of Monkey Island. Turns out that he's got a knack for these displaced artifacts, each pulled from a parallel universe where 20th century game systems still received rushed, sloppy games based on inappropriate movies and shows. Here, for example, is an 8-bit game of Stephen King's IT made by a team that perhaps got to watch one trailer, on mute, before getting cracking in time fo...

Looking for Inspiration: Excerpts About Branded Content (BMW Case Study)

The term branded content itself really took hold as a labeled marketing technique in 2001, when The Hire was produced and distributed on the internet and DVDs. BMW decided to take its $30 million advertising budget and spent it on producing five ‘mini’ feature films. The BMW film series The Hire is a series of eight short films (averaging about ten minutes each) produced for the Internet in 2001 and 2002. A form of branded content, the shorts were directed by popular filmmakers from around the...

Michael Bay Is Working on a ‘Transformers’ VR Project For Movie Theaters

Even though Paramount Pictures has made it possible for Transformers to come to life on the big screen, it’s safe to assume we’ll never see alien robots that can transform into vehicles standing in front of us. However, we’ll get the next best thing thanks to the magic of new virtual reality technology. While we were on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight (check out our set visit report right here) with a group of press up in Michigan this past summer, director Michael Bay revealed that he...

Interview: ‘Arrival’ Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson on How You Score First Contact

Arrival is one of 2016’s best movies, an intelligent and humane science fiction epic powered by big ideas that ultimately reveals a big, beautiful, and deeply heartfelt soul. And the soundtrack to those ideas, the key to that soul, comes courtesy of composer (and two-time Academy Award nominee) Jóhann Jóhannsson. This is Jóhannsson’s third collaboration with director Denis Villeneuve, following Prisoners and Sicario, the latter of which earned him one of those Oscar nods. If there is any justic...
