Simon Columb continues our Al Pacino Retrospective with Looking for Richard...
Led primarily by Pacino himself and his co-writer Frederic Kimball, they banter and argue about the text and purpose of the documentary. While Pacino is building and amassing footage to create a film to educate and illuminate a centuries old text, Fred is keen to prove how actors understand Shakespeare, while directors and academics don’t hold a candle to the perspective of the actor - who lives and breathes the roles.
Looking for Richard also showcases some of the finest American acting talent. Signing up Kevin Spacey and Alec Baldwin after working on Glengarry Glen Ross, we see their portrayals of their respective roles effortlessly played. Baldwin particularly clearly has a finesse and style that perfectly suits the betrayed brother of the king (How else can I see Baldwin play Shakespeare?). Winona Ryder appears briefly as the widow, and future wife, of King Richard. Her grace and conflicted young woman is challenged and manipulated so well, it only highlights how strong an actress Ryder can be. It also breaks my heart to see Pacino and Ryder acting alongside each other. Francis Ford Coppola cast Winona Ryder as Michael Corleone’s daughter in The Godfather Part III, but she was taken ill shortly before production and replaced by Sofia Coppola. Suffice to say, if she can convincingly act Shakespeare, Mary Corleone would be a walk in the park – and what a film it would’ve been.
Pacino cuts between the actors discussing the roles and their motivations to actors and academics who have built their careers on Shakespeare. Vanessa Redgrave tells us of the Iambic Pentameter providing a direct connection to the soul; John Gielgud reveals his belief that Americans are simply not cultured enough to truly understand Shakespeare while James Earl Jones equates Shakespeare with the word of God.
It’s hard to argue with Pacino. The relevance of Shakespeare, and crucially Richard III, is all around us. From the debt House of Cards owes to Richard III, to the politics at play in Game of Thrones, the influence is all around us. In fact, considering the story so far in House of Cards, watching the third act of Richard III may give the plot away for the third season of House of Cards next year.
Though difficult to break down, iconic and unforgettable lines hark back to this specific text. “Now is the winter of our discontent” through to “… a horse, a horse, my Kingdom for a horse”. Looking for Richard deconstructs and reveals the poetry, though an acquired taste, of the language. While shooting some of his most memorable roles (his beard from Carlito’s Way, the use of crew in the final act - borrowed from Michael Mann’s Heat), this is Al Pacino discussing his love for Shakespeare, the stage and acting itself. But now I recall others. Where is ‘Looking for Hamlet’ starring Jude Law or David Tennant? Or Ian McKellen enlightening us with the words of King Lear? This is a fascinating documentary and, if you’ve ever been switched off by the Bard, this is your entrance into his work.
Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, 2014.
Directed by Kaare Andrews.
Starring Sean Astin, Currie Graham, Ryan Donowho, Brando Eaton, Jillian Murray, Mitch Ryan and Solly Duran.
When a group of friends enjoying a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean stumble upon a research facility on a remote island, a deadly virus is unleashed. The group must find a way to survive before the flesh eating virus consumes them all.
As an honest to goodness reviewer I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of the original Cabin Fever from Eli Roth and I didn’t get the fuss that came along with it. Perhaps as a kid I’d grown up with the likes of Wes Craven and John Carpenter and I knew horror. For this reason I’d skipped the second film, so when it came to review the third I felt I was at a considerable loss of what is now going on with the story.
We begin with an opening montage of Sean Astin being aggressively man-handled by a number of people in HAZMAT suits before being rather unceremoniously dumped in a lab which is clearly being run by a supervisor (Currie Graham) who has checked all the boxes for being a bit on the “unhinged” side of things. We find out that Sean Astin’s family has recently all died from the virus and we’re informed that he is Patient Zero and perhaps the cure to the plague; it’s from this I had taken to believe that in Cabin Fever 2 a plague had swept across America or something of that ilk. Cutting to a happy pre-wedding party, which I assumed is before the plague, we meet our Jock (Brando Eaton), Stoner (Ryan Donowho), Hussie (Jillian Murray) and Straight Laced Guy/Groom (Mitch Ryan); to be fair to the Stoner and Hussie they all get stoned and the Hussie only has sex with her boyfriend (but tries it on with the groom). This group of four take to a deserted island for a bachelor party and it all starts going wrong from the first dip in the ocean with the filleted fish.
It all becomes apparent quickly that then two stories of Lab and Beach Party are running side by side and things begin to take a turn for the worst in the lab when Patient Zero starts to use his blood against the lab workers. It then rapidly becomes fairly gruesome to watch and stomach churning, however at the same time you cannot help but laugh as a rotting lab assistant is fighting it out with a decaying party-goer with snapping limbs and chunks of flesh being thrown all over the place. The make-up department really deserves a well-earned clap for this achievement.
There is a problem however; the film is rather dull and vacant of anything that wants to keep you watching. The actors were clearly as bored starring in the film as I was watching it and it came to the point where midway through I ended up wiki’ing Cabin Fever 2 to see what I had missed in the lead up to Cabin Fever 3… and there was nothing linking them at all!?
If you’re a fan of this franchise so far you’ll maybe want to watch it for the fight scene (it’s near the end) but other than that there is really nothing of interest in this film.

"Twilight, I’m sorry, is about a very unhealthy toxic relationship," states Woodley, whose credits include The Descendents and The Spectacular Now. "She falls in love with the guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she’s going to kill herself! What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve. Divergent on the other hand follows a divided society as citizen fight against genocide. It’s so metaphorical to today’s society."
Divergent is directed by Neil Burger (Limitless) from Veronica Roth's bestselling novel, with Woodley joined in the cast by Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now), Theo James (Bedlam), Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class), Ansel Elgort (Carrie), Maggie Q (Nikita), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) and Kate Winslet (Carnage). The film is set for release this Friday in the States and on April 4th in the UK.
The Book Thief,2013.
Directed by Brian Percival.
Starring Sophie Nelisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson, Nico Liersch, Roger Allam snd Kirsten Block.
While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, young Liesel finds solace by stealing books and sharing them with others. In the basement of her home, a Jewish refugee is being sheltered by her adoptive parents.
The Book Thief, an adaptation of the hugely popular book, is the story of a young German girl growing up during the Second World War. The girl, Liesel Meminger (Sophie Nélisse), discovers a love of books thanks to the kindly Hans (Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech) who adopts her.
While the idea of a family drama film set during a serious event like a World War is not impossible (see the brilliant Goodnight Mister Tom), the balance has to be very precise and it is no small task. Sadly, director Brian Percival (Downton Abbey), for whom the film is his feature debut, does not manage this.
The problem is The Book Thief feels like two separate films. One is the coming-of-age story of Liesel, as she learns to read and bonds with her new family and the locals, including the rather charismatic child actor Nico Liersch (Blackout) as football-mad Rudy. The other is a harder-edged drama about living in Nazi Germany; Liesel’s family attending a book-burning ceremony, later they take in a Jewish refugee, and in the film’s most startling scene, a group of schoolchildren sing a racist nationalistic anthem in front of a Nazi flag. While the coming-of-age stuff is a bit sickly sweet and twee, the dramatic scenes and the depictions of living in Nazi Germany are generally very effective and moving, despite the dodgy German actions used by the cast.
The problem arises when these two stories come together, it becomes very jarring. Other directorial choices add to this dissonance: one of the more bizarre choices is that the film is narrated by voice of Death, as in the Grim Reaper. While the sultry voice of Roger Allam (The Thick of It) is always great to hear, it’s just very strange listening to a family drama narrated by Death itself.
The acting in the film is also a mixed bag. Liesel’s parents are played by Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson (War Horse), a phenomenal pair of actors who are always great to watch, especially in this. On the other hand, the child actors aren’t always great. It feels harsh to bash child actors, as they are still trying to learn the craft, but the utterly wooden performance by Sophie Nélisse as the film’s main actor is very problematic; she reacts the same way to a bad bowl of soup as to the death of her little brother in the first minutes of the film. This bad acting makes the unbearably slow pace of the film even worse.
Ultimately, it’s just not a great film. It’s too childish to work as a historical drama, and too grim and serious to succeed as a family film. A very disappointing experience.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has been speaking to IGN about the upcoming fourth entry in the popular dino series. You can read the whole interview here, but the main piece of information regards casting, and who will or won't be returning to the franchise. Trevorrow has this to say:
"I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back. They’re iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons. Jurassic Park isn't about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation. The only reason they’d go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go. But there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world. This hasn't been announced yet, but BD Wong will be returning as Dr. Henry Wu. He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction. He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, under appreciated. We think there’s more to his story."
So then....Dr Wu! That's quite a turn up. He had a big part in the original novel, yet disappeared as soon as the storm hit in the film. Very cool to hear of the respect Trevorrow has for the property. With one returning character and rising star Chris Pratt (The LEGO Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy) on board, this could the second good Jurassic film.
Jurassic World is set for release next summer.
Following on from this month's first trailer [which you can watch here], a trio of new images from Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For have arrived online, giving us a look at Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) as the titular dame Ava Lord, returning star Jessica Alba as Nancy and Josh Brolin (Oldboy) as a pre-Clive Owen-looking Dwight McCarthy...
A Dame to Kill For is released on August 22nd, with returning Sin City stars Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King and Powers Boothe joined in the cast by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), Jamie Chung (The Man with the Iron Fists), Dennis Haysbert (24), Juno Temple (Killer Joe), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Alexa Vega (Machete Kills), Christopher Meloni (Man of Steel), Lady Gaga (Machete Kills), Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy), and Jeremy Piven (Entourage).
One of the main criticisms of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been the lack of familiar super-powered faces from the pages of the Marvel comic book universe - something that executive producers Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen have looked to rectify by transforming J. August Richards' Mike Peterson into the cyborg Deathlok, and with the character set to make his debut on the April 1st episode 'End of the Beginning', we've now got our first look at Richards in full costume. We can only hope this is an April Fools....
End of the Beginning - Agents Garrett (Bill Paxton) and Triplett are back to help Coulson's team track down S.H.I.E.L.D.'S nefarious enemy - the Clairvoyant. But will Deathlok destroy them all to protect his master's identity?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons. Guest starring are Bill Paxton as Agent John Garrett, Saffron Burrows as Victoria Hand, J. August Richards as Mike/Deathlok, B.J. Britt as Agent Antoine Triplett, Titus Welliver as Agent Felix Blake, Maximiliano Hernandez as Agent Jasper Sitwell and Brad Dourif as Thomas Nash.
Sony is promising to deliver the "final" trailer (yeah, right!) for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 tomorrow, and to whet our appetites for even more footage from the superhero sequel, a new teaser has arrived online, as well as another theatrical poster; check them out here...
And because they haven't quite managed to give everything away just yet, here's a shot of Stan Lee from his customary cameo...
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th in the UK and on May 1st in North America, with returning stars Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man), Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy), Sally Field (Aunt May), Chris Zylka (Flash Thompson), Campbell Scott (Richard Parker), Embeth Davidtz (Mary Parker), Martin Sheen (Ben Parker) and Denis Leary (George Stacy) and new additions Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained) as Electro, Dane DeHaan (Chronicle) as Harry Osborn, Paul Giamatti (12 Years a Slave) as The Rhino, Chris Cooper (American Beauty) as Norman Osborn, Colm Feore (Thor) as Donald Menken, Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings) as Dr. Kafka, B.J. Novak (The Office) as Alistair Smythe, and Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) and Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis) in as yet unrevealed roles.
Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the gang are set to get a CG-makeover next year courtesy of Fox Family Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios with the Peanuts animated feature, and despite the fact there's still some 20 months to go before its release, a first teaser trailer has arrived online, which we've got for you right here...
The Peanuts movie is being directed by Steve Martino (Ice Age: Continental Drift, Horton Hears a Who!) and counts Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) among its producers. The film is set to hit cinemas on October 16th 2015 in the UK and November 6th 2015 in the States,
Casting has been picking up pace on the film lately, with Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine) set to play Blackbeard alongside Garrett Hedlun (Inside Llewyn Davis) as Hook, Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as Tiger Lily and Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions) as Smee.
Pan is set for release on July 17th 2015, and is described as "the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds grand adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan."
Collider about his latest film Sabotage:
"I think that it’s just so wild to have a franchise that has been around for that long, and then after 30 years, to get asked again to be the only character in a movie that is the same character is unheard of, in movie history. You always switch out, like with James Bond and Batman. They have new characters there. But, not here. That, to me, is an extraordinary situation and a great opportunity. Of course, I was honored when I was asked to come back and play the character with Sarah Connor... Terminator is going to have the exact same feel. The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, 'Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?'"
Terminator: Genesis will be directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), with Arnold joined in the cast by Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as John Connor, Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) as Kyle Reese and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) in an as-yet-unrevealed role. The film is set for release on July 1st 2015 with filming due to begin next month.
We've seen a fair bit of promotional material for Maleficent over the past week, and now Disney has released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Sleeping Beauty reimagining, which you can check out right here after the official synopsis....
From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
Maleficent is set for release on May 30th, with Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Alice in Wonderland) directing a cast that sees Angelina Jolie returning to the screen after a four year absence in the lead role as the Mistress of All Evil alongside Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Imelda Staunton (The Pirates! Band of Misfits), Miranda Richardson (The Hours), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), and Lesley Manville (Romeo and Juliet). The film is set for release on May 30th.
At this point, virtually nothing is known about either project, although Iger did confirm that The Incredibles director Brad Bird is busy penning the script for the long-awaited sequel to the 2004 hit, which grossed $631 million at the box office.
2014 will be the first year without a Pixar release since 2005, but the animation studio has several films in the pipeline, with the original properties Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur due in 2015, followed by the Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory in 2016.
As for when we might see either of these sequels, Pixar does have three release dates set for 2017 and 2018, which Cars 3 and The Incredibles 2 could potentially fill along with the studio's as-yet-untitled film about Dia de los Muertos.
While that's certainly a packed slate, the studio still has ambitions on numerous other properties, with the likes of Black Panther, Inhumans, Ms. Marvel and Runaways, solo outings for Black Widow and The Hulk and a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy all previously tipped as possibilities, not to mention the fact that Marvel Studios has reacquired the rights to The Punisher and Ghost Rider. So, how could Marvel possibly hope to manage all these projects? Well, according to Kevin Feige, it may necessitate altering the studio's release pattern, upping their output to three or even four movies per year.
"I think television is filling some of that now, in terms of bringing out more product," Feige tells Badass Digest. "That’s certainly the idea with the Netflix shows. But I don’t know that we will necessarily say 'Okay, we’re now moving strategically to three a year, now we’re moving to four a year.' What I think is more likely - if [knocks on wood-like table] the next group of movies work and people want to see additional stories - we’ll have too many franchises and you can’t do one of each franchise every two or three years. We’d have to move to three a year, but that would have to be a natural move if it were to occur. We’d have a [script] draft, we’d have a filmmaker, we’d have a character the audience wants to see - let’s slot in a place for a third one. Or a fourth one. But it’s hard enough to deliver two quality, hopefully bar-raising movies a year."
Would three or four Marvel movies per year be overkill, or is it the next logical step for the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Let us know your thoughts...
In a statement made by Warner Bros., it was announced that, “the vast majority of Veronica Mars backers who attempted to redeem their code had a successful experience. A communication was sent to all backers yesterday from Rob Thomas telling them to get in touch with Veronica Mars technical support if they were experiencing problems.”
Veronica Mars is out now, with Rob Thomas directing a cast that includes series stars Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Ryan Hansen, Krysten Ritter, Percy Daggs III, Tina Majorino, Francis Capra, Ken Marino and Enrico Colantoni.
20th Century Fox has released the first trailer and poster for the YA adaptation The Maze Runner. Directed by first timer Wes Ball, the film centres on Thomas, who wakes up trapped in a massive maze with a group of other boys, he has no memory of the outside world other than strange dreams about a mysterious organisation known as W.C.K.D. Only by piercing together fragments of his past with clues he discovers in the maze can Thomas hope to uncover his true purpose and a way to escape.
The Maze Runner opens April 19th and stars Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Kaya Scodelario (Moon), Will Poulter (We’re the Millers), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones) and Aml Ameen (The Butler).
Anthony Stokes thinks that Warner Bros. should move the release date of Batman vs. Superman...
First off let me say I don't think Captain America 3 will beat Batman vs. Superman opening weekend. It's possible that if Captain America: The Winter Soldier is as good as people say that it will be close. Thor: The Dark World grossed almost as much as Man of Steel with mediocre reception and light competition; I have no doubt that with great reception The Winter Soldier can make more money than Man of Steel, and if Cap 2 is great then more people will be excited and line up opening weekend for the third movie.
But even if Batman vs. Superman wins the opening weekend, Warner Bros. and DC will still lose. There's only so much money to go around on a given weekend. Captain America 3 will take money from Batman vs. Superman and visa versa. But Cap 3 isn't Marvel's big hand, and it'll still make its money, just not as much as it could. Even, so Marvel will have covered any shortfall with The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man the previous year. Warner Bros. is pulling out its biggest weapon in the DC arsenal and unlike Marvel, it doesn't have two movies a year to make for any loss of earnings. If - and this is a huge if - Batman vs. Superman somehow fails, or doesn't quite reach the box office heights expected of DC's two biggest characters together for the first time, then the DC Cinematic Universe will have suffered a heavy blow.
May 6th 2016 will be a case of DC winning the battle but Marvel winning the war. Recently Marvel movies have been more successful than DC movies when released in the same year . The Avengers outgrossed The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3 outgrossed Man of Steel and Thor: The Dark World wasn't too far behind either. Warner Bros. needs to establish its DC brand, and going up against Marvel Studios and Captain America is a big risk that the studio could do without.
Anthony Stokes is a blogger and independent filmmaker who also assists with the music blog DopesterMusic and co-hosts the podcast Delusional Losers.
American Ultra will see Eisenberg playing an unmotivated stoner with Stewart as his girlfriend. They live an uneventful life in a small turn until it turns out that Eisenberg is actually an amnesiac sleeper agent in a program the government decided to shut down and wipe out. Thurman will play Mike’s former handler.
The script is written by the incredibly talented Max Landis (Chronicle) while Nourizaeh last directed the grotesque Project X. Shooting starts next month.
