Dexter Fletcher To Direct A Reboot Of ‘The Saint’ For Paramount

After most reports say that he saved “Bohemian Rhapsody” and then went on to helm the Oscar-winning feature “Rocketman,” filmmaker Dexter Fletcher is understandably in high demand. The filmmaker is already signed on to direct “Sherlock Holmes 3,” as well as a new “Dracula” film, but it appears that he’s also lining up an action reboot of “The Saint.”

According to Variety, Paramount has signed Dexter Fletcher as the director of a new reboot of the classic action franchise, “The Saint.” For those unaware, “The Saint” is based on the 1920s novel series written by Leslie Charteris about a wealthy thief-for-hire that is on a Robin Hood-esque mission that targets corrupt politicians, warmongers, and other lowlifes.

‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’ Bonfire Scene: How Céline Sciamma Crafted the Year’s Best Musical Moment
‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’ Bonfire Scene: How Céline Sciamma Crafted the Year’s Best Musical Moment

The moment comes just a little past the halfway mark of the two-hour “Portrait of a Lady on Fire.” Marianne (Noémie Merlant) and Héloïse (Adèle Haenel) have yet to acknowledge their growing desire when they are brought to an evening gathering of the women who live on the isolated island in Brittany. As the two soon-to-be-lovers exchange glances across the bonfire, a low, slow chant starts to rise as the rest of the women gather to sing.

The song grows, clapping starts, and they begin to repeat a lyric. When she was a guest on IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast, director Céline Sciamma talked about how she looked for an 18th century song to adapt, but wasn’t able to find one that fit her needs.

“I listened to a lot of old melodies from the time; some of them we are still singing to our kids to bed,” said Sciamma.

New ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Clip Promises High-Stakes Action in Final Season

The six-year wait for “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” Season 7 is nearly over. The first episode of the series’ final season will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, February 21, and Disney has unveiled a new clip and several images to hype up the beginning of the end.

Like the show itself, Season 7 will focus on the end of the galaxy-spanning Clone Wars that defined much of the franchise’s mythology. The new clip from “The Bad Batch” teases a team-up with a squad of “favorably mutated” clone troopers, who will kick off the season with a mission behind Separatist lines.

Per Disney: “The forces of darkness have amassed great power in their bid to transform the Republic into the Galactic Empire. With the Republic on a losing streak, Captain Rex fears the Separatists are using stolen data to help predict the Grand Army’s every move. As the threat of defeat looms,

‘The Plot Against America’ Trailer: HBO Series Finds America On The Brink Of War & A Fascist Government

Can you imagine a world where a Presidential candidate is running on an exclusionary platform that promotes America first and might have ties to anti-Semitic groups such as the Nazis? A world where the biggest election in national history is about to happen, which could see America dive deeper into chaos and possibly war? Yeah, I know, super crazy idea. But that’s the premise of the upcoming alternate history series “The Plot Against America.”

A24 Sets Claire Denis Romance Thriller With Pattinson, Margaret Qualley — First Details

Claire Denis and Robert Pattinson openly talked about wanting to work together again while promoting their first collaboration, the space drama “High Life,” and now they’re going to get the chance with the French director’s next feature film, “The Stars at Noon.” Deadline reports that A24 has picked up North American distribution rights to “The Stars at Noon” ahead of the European Film Market kicking off this week. The project pairs Pattinson with “Fosse/Verdon” Emmy nominee and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” favorite Margaret Qualley. “The Stars at Noon” script is being adapted from Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel by co-writers Denis, Lea Mysius, and Andrew Litvack.

“The Stars at Night” is set during the Nicaraguan Revolution in 1984. Pattinson will star as a mysterious English businessman who meets an American Journalist (Qualley) reporting on the revolution. The two have an instant connection and a passionate romance ensues, only

Ana De Armas’ ‘Bond’ Character Was Created By Cary Fukunaga & Mostly Written By Phoebe Waller-Bridge

The idea of a “Bond Girl” is fairly outdated. For generations, over the course of two dozen films, James Bond has always found himself opposite a beautiful woman that would inevitably need saving, betray the spy, or get killed. It wasn’t until recent films that the idea has morphed, as society’s views on gender norms have shifted. And in “No Time To Die,” that shift is reportedly more striking than ever before with the introduction of Paloma, played by Ana de Armas.

With careful research and insightful editing, Feder and Goldate

Early Predictions Say ‘The New Mutants’ Will Have An Awful Box Office Debut, Surprising No One

For all intents and purposes, the FoxX-Men’ cinematic universe died with “Dark Phoenix” last summer. However, it appears that Disney is now actually going to release the last remnant of that era of filmmaking, “The New Mutants,” in theaters this April. And judging by the first box office predictions, it sounds as if the last hurrah of the Fox/Marvel film series is going to go out with a whimper instead of a bang.

Bong Joon Ho’s Translator Sharon Choi Publishes Essay on Her ‘Parasite’ Oscar Season Journey

Sharon Choi, Bong Joon Ho’s awards season translator and the undisputed Mvp of Oscar season, had a front row seat to the legendary awards season run of “Parasite.” Choi attended the Cannes Film Festival alongside Bong and was front and center when “Parasite” made history as the first South Korean film to take home the Palme d’Or. Months later, Sharon would take the stage at the Dolby Theater as Bong received Oscars for Best Original Screenplay, Best International Feature Film, Best Director, and Best Picture. “Parasite” is the first South Korean film to win Oscars and the first foreign-language movie to ever be named Best Picture. In between Cannes and the Oscars, Choi traveled with Bong to various festivals and award ceremonies and experienced firsthand the adoration for both the director and “Parasite.” The translator and aspiring filmmaker reminisces on her whirlwind Oscar season in a new first-person essay published on Variety.

When a horror film fails, there are always those trying to look for answers. In the case of a PG-13 horror film, such as the recent “Fantasy Island,” there will be some that look at the terrible reviews and tepid box office and wonder if an R-rating would have been better, allowing for a bit more gore and terror. Well, according to “Fantasy Island” director Jeff Wadlow, his film was originally conceived as a rated-r film, but that was changed during post-production.

‘The Plot Against America’ Official Trailer: HBO’s Alt-History Adaptation Reveals Lindbergh’s Fascist America

HBO has released the full official trailer for its upcoming limited series “The Plot Against America,” set to premiere this March.

Starring Zoe Kazan, Morgan Spector, Winona Ryder, and John Turturro, the six-part series comes from executive producers and longtime collaborators David Simon and Ed Burns. Based on the prescient novel by Philip Roth, “The Plot Against America” takes place in an alternate-history version of America, in which the United States turns toward fascism during the Second World War. The story is told through the eyes of a New Jersey working-class Jewish family, as aviation hero and xenophobic populist Charles Lindbergh (Ben Cole) runs for President of the United States and wins.

HBO released the teaser trailer for the limited series back at the end of January, revealing just how tense things would get in the lead-up to Lindbergh’s election. The official trailer, however, includes more about the aftermath

‘High Fidelity’ Soundtrack: The Story Behind Songs from Season 1 of the Hulu TV Show

[Note: The following contains music-based spoilers for Season 1 of “High Fidelity.”]

It would have been very easy for the Hulu adaptation of “High Fidelity” to stick to a narrow set of musical ideas to help tell its story. But at the end of the show’s opening season, not only did series co-creators Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka look back on a show that had stretched its musical taste in a number of different directions, it had done so on a global scale.

“These people sit in a record store all day every day. They’re listening to everything. To make it feel like there’s one genre of music or, or one time period of music that is all that we’ve listened to, would feel inauthentic,” West told IndieWire. “It was very cool that at the end of the season, we had a song from every single continent.”

The search for far-reaching songs spanning time zones around the world — “except Antarctica,

As technology becomes more and more advanced, bastions of moviegoing’s past are finding themselves dying slow deaths.

Now, it appears that Moviefone is perhaps next in line on the march towards inevitability.

Oscar Winner Martin McDonagh Sets Next Film After ‘Three Billboards’ Success — First Details

Martin McDonagh is gearing up to return to filmmaking two years after his last project, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” dominated the Oscars with six nominations and two wins: Best Actress for Frances McDormand and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell. Variety confirms McDonagh will go into production this year on his follow-up project, an untitled two-hander set on an Irish isle. The script follows two lifelong friends on a remote Irish isle who face dark consequences after one of them decide to abruptly end their friendship. A cast for the film has not yet been announced. McDonagh will team with his “Three Billboards” production duo Searchlight Pictures and Film 4 on the project. Searchlight will distribute McDonagh’s latest worldwide.

McDonagh’s upcoming project will be his fourth feature following “In Bruges,” “Seven Psychopaths,” and “Three Billboards.” Film 4 has been behind all of McDonagh’s film projects. Both “In Bruges

Harrison Ford Shuts Down ‘Star Wars’ Question About Force Ghost Han: ‘I Don’t Care’
Harrison Ford Shuts Down ‘Star Wars’ Question About Force Ghost Han: ‘I Don’t Care’

Harrison Ford is known to be a tough interview, and that turned out to be the case when USA Today recently asked the actor about his surprise cameo in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” Ford returned as Han Solo in a brief scene in which Han confronts his son, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and successfully turns him away from the dark side. Han was killed in “The Force Awakens” and Ford’s return in “The Rise of Skywalker” was one of the Disney blockbuster’s most heavily guarded secrets prior to its December release. Fans have debated whether or not Han appeared to Kylo as a Force ghost or a projection conjured by Leia (Carrie Fisher). The former would mean Han was sensitive to the Force, while the latter seems more plausible as Leia passes away right after the Han-Kylo reunion scene. The implication is that Leia used the

Filmmaker Martin McDonagh isn’t the most prolific filmmaker around. He doesn’t pump out a new feature annually like some folks in the industry. But he is fairly disciplined. And by that, I mean, like clockwork, the writer-director releases a new feature film approximately every four years. If you’ve been keeping track, it’s been 3 years since “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” which means we’re about at that time when a new McDonagh feature begins ramping up.

Old Directors, New Tricks: Rotterdam's "The Tyger Burns"

Above: The Long RoadIf there is anything to be learned from film history, it might be how fragile history really is, how easily it is changed, erased and can be constructed to disempower. Fragility in relation to history, memory, and time is one of the main reoccurring themes within the International Film Festival Rotterdam’s program “The Tyger Burns.” By curating a program that only featured new work of filmmakers who were already active by the time the Rotterdam festival started in the 1970s, Iffr programmer Gerwin Tamsma and guest programmer Olaf Möller brought an exceptional ode to the figure and the gaze of the old director this year. The importance of a program such as “The Tyger Burns” cannot be easily underestimated within our current festival climate and it makes quite a radical and necessary statement. Our contemporary film and festival industry is predominantly preoccupied with discovering and cherishing youth.

Mubi's retrospective Yuzo Kawashima's Post-War Japan runs January - April, 2020. Il Cinema Ritrovato will be staging a retrospective on the director in 2020.Yūzō Kawashima is one of Japan's most beloved directors, and, curiously enough, maybe also one of the most written-about. Books and special editions of magazines keep coming; only in December 2018, one of Japan's finest publishers of film books with a special interest in post-war stylists and genre masters, Wides Shuppan, celebrated the master's centennial by unleashing a brick of texts on his cinema that feels mighty definite—until something even more extensive will come up, of course. In the absence of any formalist tics or overt thematic obsessions, Kawashima, it seems, is as much an auteur to love and venerate as he's a character to wonder about—the quirky stuff of melancholic legends one obsessively tries to find in his films, like eg. seeing his ideal of

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Trailer: A Superhero Origin Story for the John Hughes Set

Netflix has unleashed the trailer for its latest comedy series aimed at teens and nostalgic adults, and it’s called “I Am Not Okay With This.” Based on a 2017 graphic novel by Charles Forsman, the series comes from the director/executive producer of Netflix cult favorite “The End of the F***ing World,” Jonathan Entwistle, and producers on the streamer’s wildly popular “Stranger Things,” a vibe that “I Am Not Okay With This” is clearly grooving to. And as a kind of superhero origin story set among grade-schoolers coming into puberty, it’s got a John Hughes vibe, also. Check it out below.

Unfolding across seven 30-minute episodes that will drop on February 26, the series stars Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff (also from “It”), Sofia Bryant (“The Good Wife”), and Kathleen Rose Perkins, Aidan Wojtak-Hissong (“Falling Water”), and Richard Ellis (“Veronica Mars”). It’s the irreverent origin story that follows a teenage girl,

‘Ordinary Love’ Review: Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson in Marriage Story That’s the Anti-‘Phantom Thread’
‘Ordinary Love’ Review: Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson in Marriage Story That’s the Anti-‘Phantom Thread’

Ordinary Love” isn’t really a movie about cancer, even though this tender and discreet portrait of a marriage on fire begins with a woman (Lesley Manville) asking her longtime husband (Liam Neeson) to feel the lump she finds under her left breast. It isn’t even a movie about dying, even though Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn’s direction casts a moribund pall over the drama from the moment it starts. On the contrary — and true to the title of Owen McCafferty’s semi-autobiographical script — “Ordinary Love” is ; a story about how different kinds of pain can trace the limits and boundlessness of sharing your life with someone.

Tom and Joan have been together for so long that the world outside of their marriage only seems to exist in soft focus. The two retirees live a quiet upper-middle-class existence in a seaside Irish town, and spend their afternoons

The maddening wait is almost over: “Killing Eve” finally has a return date, and it puts the drama in the thick of Emmy qualification season. BBC America’s critically-acclaimed spy-versus-spy drama — and let’s face it, sexy cat and mouse chase — “Killing Eve” returns for its third season on Sunday, April 26 at 10 p.m. Et.

Entertainment Weekly spoke with “Killing Eve” executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle (“The Durrells in Corfu”) and star Jodie Comer ahead of Season 3 and even provided a few first look images from the season. And while it’s not quite safe to assume that there’s some funny business going on this season, the images of Villanelle (Comer) as a clown and Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) with a foam finger suggest that “Killing Eve” hasn’t lost its twisted sense of humor.

Set six months after the events of the Season 2 finale, “Killing Eve” Season 3 finds both
