Martin Scorsese is Obsessing Over the “Youthification” CGI in ‘The Irishman’

The Irishman is Martin Scorsese‘s reunion with Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. It’s also his return to the crime movie genre. But despite all these familiar elements, the upcoming Netflix film is going to be unlike anything Scorsese has ever made before. Because unlike the filmmaker’s previous films, The Irishman is employing extensive CGI in order to de-age the cast. The story spans decades, and rather than cast younger actors for earlier scenes, Scorsese is using special effects ...

Robert De Niro Becomes the Bagel Boss in Weird UK Bagel Commercial

Robert De Niro was once hailed as the greatest actor of his generation. Now, he’s selling bagels in the UK. The acclaimed actor pokes fun at some of his famous wiseguy roles in a truly strange new commercial for British baking company Warburtons. The gist of the commercial is that New York tough guys are particularly outraged that folks across the pond would try to muscle in on America’s bagel action. At least, I think that’s what’s happening here. What makes this extra weird is the fact that D...

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro on How ‘Raging Bull’ Avoided Being Shut Down

From “Mean Streets” to their upcoming “The Irishman,” Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese have one of film’s most famous (and long-running) actor/director partnerships. The two talked about their decades of work together at the Tribeca Film Festival (which De Niro co-founded) on Sunday afternoon, touching on the dynamics of their partnership, Scorsese’s hesitance to […]

‘The Irishman’ VFX Will Hopefully Be ‘The Best It’s Ever Been’, According to Robert De Niro

We still haven’t seen any footage of Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman, and there’s a good reason for that. Scorsese and company are working hard to make the film’s special effects perfect. The movie spans several decades, and rather than cast different actors to play the cast of characters throughout time, Scorsese instead employed the type of de-aging tech Marvel uses. Robert De Niro, who reunites with Scorsese to star in the film, offered some insight into the process. Sooner or later, Netfl...

‘The Current War’ Flickers Back to Life as 101 Studios Acquires Film for Wide Release

Two years ago, The Current War was being primed to be a key Oscar candidate. A historical drama about the race for electricity dominance in 19th century America starring awards darlings Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon and directed by Martin Scorsese protégé Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, The Current War had all the right elements to make it a frontrunner in the awards race. It was met with lukewarm reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, and that might have obstructed it, sure, but c...

Joaquin Phoenix goes full Rupert Pupkin in new ‘Joker’ trailer

Batman’s greatest nemesis has never had a consistent backstory — and honestly, that’s always been part of his appeal. In a medium where origins are everything, the threads of the Joker’s tale are ever bit as twisted as the character himself. But in an era when even Batman’s butler gets a television show exploring his early life, the only surprise is that a film like Joker didn’t come along sooner. The Todd Phillips (The Hangover trilogy) directed origin story sports a coveted Martin Scorsese ...

5 Irish Movies to Watch This Saint Patrick’s Day

5 Irish Movies to Watch This Saint Patrick’s Day Saint Patrick was a missionary and bishop in Ireland during the 5th century. Born in AD 385, Patrick knew that he was destined for great things. When he was sixteen years old, Patrick was kidnapped by Irish Raiders and taken into slavery. According to The Declaration (not of Independence- that came later — this was more of an autobiography-type-thing that Saint P wrote himself), God told Patrick to flee to the coast (because even back then, eve...

Sorry, Warner Bros. Isn’t Playing Your Silly “Remove the Rat from ‘The Departed’ Game”, Internet

The collective Internet hive-mind had themselves a good laugh over a recently launched Kickstarter. That Kickstarter’s aim? To remove the rat that scurries across the frame at the end of Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning crime flick The Departed. Hilarious, right? Well, Warner Bros. doesn’t think so. Much like Mark Wahlberg at the end of The Departed, the studio put on a track suit, latex gloves and paper booties and then put a bullet in the Kickstarter page’s head. Or, more accurately, they shut...

This teaser has no footage from the film, just names and a flying CG bullet. They likely released this based on the fact that everyone keeps asking where the heck this film is, and they just wanted to say it's coming up this year still - and it's getting a theatrical release.

Piercing doesn’t ever pull a punch. The title of writer-director Nicolas Pesce‘s adaptation of Ryû Murakami‘s novel of the same name couldn’t be more fitting.

‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...
