Tree of Life

What is Movie News After Dark? Only the most high-octane dose of movie news you could possibly have in the middle of the night. Everything in here is worth reading, friends. Except for my commentary. You could probably take or leave that, depending on your mood. The image above marks the first official image from Fright Night, the Craig Gillespie remake 3D remake of the 80s horror film of the same name. In this shot, Colin Farrell plays the vampire next door, and he appears to be looking to start a diet comprised completely of Anton Yelchin. Over at Cinematical (which I feel dirty linking to…) they have shots of Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Imogen Poots, who has one of the more adorable names ever.

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s interested only in providing you with movie news, it does not seek to earn your affection. Alright, maybe not your affection, but definitely your obedience. So be a good little soldier and read it every night before you lay your head down to sleep. We open tonight with a peek at the French poster for Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life, which may or may not be debuting in the UK right before it opens at the Cannes Film Festival. All I know is that I’m interested to see it, because reports have been all over the place. And all over the place usually isn’t a bad thing when it comes to a Terrence Malick film.

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s your definitive source of Pixar pandering, at least for tonight. But hey, at least we get it out of the way in a single article. Try reading other sites — it’s Pixar this, Pixar that, even the new Batman reboot will be done by Pixar. Good grief. That said, we watched The Incredibles on Blu-ray this evening and it was INCR… you get the idea. Now on with the news. We begin tonight with news that excites me. It’s no secret that Max Brooks’ book “World War Z” is a personal favorite of mine. It’s exceptional in every possible way and one of the great zombie apocalypse stories ever written. So to see it come to life as a movie is risky, but worth it. When the project was reportedly in danger a few weeks ago, I was sad. But now I’m happy(ish) again, as a new report says that World War Z could get financing and even begin shooting this summer. If I could, I would will this project to happen. It may be impossible, but I’m going to try.

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s the nightly ramblings of a link-dump crazed insomniac whose life begins and ends with what ends up in his Instapaper queue. He survives on links and thrives on the knowledge that someone out there is clicking through. Click. Click. Click. You can feed the beast by emailing wicked cool articles and hilarious movie-related videos to neil@filmschoolrejects.com.

This being my third Cannes Film Festival in a row, I feel I’m now in the privileged position to demand something of the festival in return for standing thanklessly in queues in the baking sun, and allowing my English Rose skin to wilt/burst into flames under the unforgiving French Riviera sun. So, with that in mind, below is a run-down of what I’d ideally like to see when I get to Cannes in May – along with a few reasonable predictions, based on what’s coming up.

In an interview with the LA Times, Tree of Life cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki claimed that it was different than any other experience he’s had with filmmaking. Those words carry an immense weight considering the man is in his 28th year of his career and has worked on films as diverse as Children of Men and Y Tu Mama Tambien. What was different about it? They didn’t focus on the actors. “So the actors are performing the dialogue, but Terry [Malick] isn’t interested in dialogue. So they’re talking, and we’re shooting a reflection or we’re shooting the wind or we’re shooting the frame of the window, and then we finally pan to them when they finish the dialogue,” said Lubezki.

There’s something about the new poster for Terrence Malick’s forthcoming Tree of Life that has an E.T. quality about it. It’s tough to put a finger on, but it’s there. However, there’s nothing Amblin-like about the new synopsis coming straight from the director’s mouth. Except that it focuses on an 11-year-old boy and a family in the Midwest. Other than that, there’s nothing Spielbergian about it. Hop off your front porch swing, and check out the poster after the jump.

Terrence Malik shoots with Olga Kurylenko

Even though Fox Searchlight probably won’t begin releasing trailers (let alone the entire film) until next summer for his more than complete flick Tree of Life, director Terrence Malik has moved on to his next project. According to a report from Rockville Magazine, the above photo is Malik shooting with Quantum of Solace star Olga Kurylenko in Oklahoma. The project, which will be shrouded in secrecy for the moment, sees not just the return of Malik, but of cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and production designer Jack Fisk. The loaded cast for this “powerful love story” (as we’re hearing) will also include Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz. Now, if only he can get it done and into the hands of a studio that won’t sit on it for a year… [Rockville Magazine via Ain't It Cool]
