KILL YOUR DARLINGS Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 10 days ago

Telling the true story of someone’s life in a film is a difficult task.  The trappings of the biopic genre become glaringly apparent when filmmakers try to chronicle an entire life in a two-hour film.  There are innumerable events over the course of a person’s lifespan that alter him or her, for better or worse, and humans are always undergoing change.  Trying to discern which events are most important is a futile effort, and more often than not, the cradle-to-grave biopic results in a droll feature.  However, when the filmmaker focuses on a constrained period of time in a person’s life and frames an entire film around that, the results can be fascinating.  Such is the case with writer/director John Krokidas’ drama Kill Your Darlings, which chronicles the early college years of poet Allen Ginsberg and the beginnings of the Beat movement, using that as a springboard to explore themes of rebellion, obsession, and self-discovery.

The result is an ambitious, bombastic debut feature for Krokidas, buoyed by a pair of fearless performances from Daniel Radcliffe and Dane DeHaan.  My full Kill Your Darlings Blu-ray review follows after the jump.

Extended TV Spot for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Contains Even More New Footage

In case you haven’t seen enough of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 yet, Sony has released an extended TV spot containing even more new footage.  I’m curious as to why they keep doing this.  Are they worried people won’t come out to see a Spider-Man movie?  It’s Spider-Man.  People will see it.  It will sell lots of toys and other merchandise.  It’s also the first movie of the summer blockbuster season (no disrespect to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but summer blockbuster season begins on the first weekend of May; it’s science).  Does giving so much of the movie away really benefit anyone?  I guess if you can’t get enough of the movie before you see the movie, then you’re over the moon about the company’s marketing campaign.

New Images from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 Provide a Good Look at Green Goblin’s Glider [Updated with Hi-Res]

Despite the fact that the movie doesn’t open for over a month, Sony is nowhere near done with it’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 marketing blitz.  Today’s batch of new images offer a behind-the-scenes look at the practical version of Green Goblin’s (Dane DeHaan) glider, another look at Paul Giamatti’s Rhino, and then a couple of other images that might cross the line into possible spoiler territory.  It’s been said to death, but given the amount of footage and such that we’ve seen from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it feels like we have enough to plot out the entire story.  Despite feeling overwhelmed by it, the footage actually looks quite good, so hopefully director Marc Webb still has plenty of surprises waiting for moviegoers on opening weekend.

Novak, and Chris CooperThe Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd. [Update: We've updated the article with high-resolution versions of some of the images.]

A New Look at Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

by     Posted 21 days ago

A new image of The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan) has been released.  It’s not an image from the film, but rather a close-up that highlights the character’s grotesque details.  It’s definitely a far cry from the Green Goblin armor used in Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man, but armor is still part of the costume.  Now it’s just that cybernetic implants, bad hair, bad skin, and bad teeth are part of the design.  They’ve even put on a prosthetic pointy nose to make him appear more goblin-like.  Clearly, the character’s transformation process is falling from an ugly tree and hitting every branch on the way down.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Emma StonePaul GiamattiSally FieldChris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd.

Final Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Sony Pictures has released a final theatrical trailer for director Marc Webb‘s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  The follow-up finds Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.  This trailer would probably be a bit more exciting if Sony hadn’t previously released an overwhelming amount of trailers, clips, and images (keep in mind that the movie is still six weeks away), but there’s still plenty of action and a heavier emphasis on Harry Osborne/Green Goblin even though Electro is the main villain.  The movie looks good; I just wish the studio hadn’t already shown us so much of it.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Emma StonePaul GiamattiSally FieldChris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Felicity Jones.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 2nd.

New Clips from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

Clips from two highly anticipated superhero sequels have been released online.  First up, a new clip from Captain America: The Winter Soldier features neither Captain America nor the Winter Soldier, as we instead see a discussion between Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Robert Redford’s character, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.  If you’re itching to see the titular duo, though, check out yesterday’s clip.  Early reactions to the film have been overwhelmingly positive, and I’m eager to see how Redford fits into the overall Marvel universe.  You’ll also want to stick around after the credits to see a scene directed by Joss WhedonCaptain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4th.

Additionally, two new clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have been released, just a day after the debut clip came online.  These two new clips feature, alternately, a scene between Peter (Andrew Garfield) and Gwen (Emma Stone), and a scene between Peter and Harry (Dane DeHaan).  They’re both quite character-centric, which is promising.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd.

New Trailer for DEVIL’S KNOT Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth

A new trailer for director Atom Egoyan’s real-life drama Devil’s Knot has been released online.  The film is based on the story of the West Memphis Three, who were wrongfully accused and convicted of the murder of three young boys in Arkansas in the 1990s.  Reese Witherspoon stars as the mother of one of the victims while Colin Firth plays a private investigator hired to look into the defense case.  I caught the pic at TIFF last fall and found it to be a massive disappointment.  The film has no real focus and the performances—by talented actors, mind you—are bafflingly atrocious.  Moreover, the story of Witherspoon’s character verges into exploitation territory.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and click here to read Matt’s review.  The film also stars Alessandro Nivola, Stephen Moyer, Dane DeHaanMireille EnosBruce GreenwoodElias Koteas, and Amy Ryan.  Devil’s Knot opens in theaters May 9th.

You can’t sell a big superhero movie these days without product integration or cross-promotion, and thanks to Sony’s team-up with Kellogg’s, three new promo clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have landed online.  The clips show off some meaty bits of new footage (including Oscorp and Norman Osborn), but they’re mostly notable because they feature narration from comic book legend Stan Lee, adding a retro, heroic feel to the footage.  In the Marc Webb-directed sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.

Hit the jump to watch the three promo clips, one of which is slightly spoilery.  The film also stars Emma StonePaul GiamattiFelicity JonesChris CooperB.J. NovakColm Feore, and Sally Field.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2nd.

First Look at Dane DeHaan as James Dean Opposite Robert Pattinson in Anton Corbijn’s LIFE

The first image from director Anton Corbijn’s (The American) upcoming drama Life has landed online.  The film chronicles the friendship between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean as the two took a journey across the U.S. for a 1955 Life Magazine assignment.  Dane DeHaan leads the film as Dean, while Robert Pattison takes on the role of Stock.  It’s tough to judge how much DeHaan embodies the role of Dean based on this one slightly obstructed image, but the pieces are all in place for a fascinating drama that provides an interesting point of view on Dean’s life.

Hit the jump to take a look at the image and to read what Corbijn had to say about the casting.  The film also stars Ben Kingsley.  Life is currently in the midst of production in Canada but a release date has yet to be set.

It seems like only yesterday that Sony was hiding the fact that Green Goblin was in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and he would be played by Dane DeHaan.  I’m not sure what the difference is between knowing three months in advance of the release date as opposed to six months, but it’s standard procedure for most studios and their blockbusters.  In any event, the studio has now released another image of Goblin and this time he’s throwing down against Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield).  In this reboot, the key to being the Green Goblin is bad hair, bad teeth and dirty skin wrapped up in a mech suit.  Harry Osborn is stealing jobs from homeless people.

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.  In the upcoming sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.  This new trailer is a mash-up of the trailers we’ve seen over the past few months with a few bits of new action thrown in.  With a little under three months left to go until the film’s release date, I’m a little worried about how much more they can show us since we’ve already gotten a pretty heavy dose of the plot.  Perhaps it’s best to keep the reveals where they are, and let us be surprised when we see the film in May.
