bladerunner4

October is upon us and the most highly anticipated film of the month is Blade Runner 2049. Already receiving stellar reviews, Blade Runner 2049 may be one of the rare movies that improves upon the iconic original. Directed by Arrival and Sicario filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, the feature marks the return of former LAPD blade runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford). Ryan Gosling is simply known as K, the officer who’s searching for Deckard. Blade Runner 2049 opens nationwide October 6.

Critics darling Todd Haynes (Carol, Far from Heaven) is back with Wonderstruck, a storyline that follows the journey of two children living in different time periods. Julianne Moore, who previously worked with Haynes in Far From Heaven and Safe, reunites with Haynes in the feature that’s adapted by Brian Selznick’s book. Wonderstruck opens in limited release October 20.

Better Watch Out, the Harry Dean Stanton headlined Lucky, and Una (which features Carol actress Rooney Mara) are also covered on the latest episode of CinemAddicts. Take a listen below and feel free to comment!

Todd Haynes Reaches “Ground Control” With ‘Wonderstruck’ Trailer

wonderstruck1Delving into the past is part of director Todd Haynes’ (Carol, Velvet Goldmine, I’m Not There) storytelling style, and he follows suit with his latest film Wonderstruck.

Penned by Brian Selznick (from his own bestselling novel), Wonderstruck is set in two time periods (1927 and 1977). After his mother’s (Michelle Williams) passing, Ben (Oakes Fegley) goes on a quest to find a father he has never known. Fifty years earlier, a child named Rose (Millicent Simmonds) goes searching for an actress (Julianne Moore) she admires.

It’s great to see Haynes and Moore reunite after their successful collaborations on Safe and Far From Heaven. The Wonderstruck trailer has a similar wistful tone to Haynes’ Citizen Kane-ish homage Velvet Goldmine, and the film has already received great word of mouth. Whether or not David Bowie approved of Velvet Goldmine, it’s a wonderful touch to have the seminal track “Space Oddity” in the trailer.

Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Wonderstruck hits theaters October 20th via Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions.

Staying In Character Was Key For ‘Hugo’ Star Ben Kingsley

hugo-poster-2It’s hard to imagine a better holiday family film this season than HUGO, director MARTIN SCORSESE’S big-screen rendition of BRIAN SELZNICK’S award-winning children’s book, THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET. At its center is the titular 11-year-old orphan who keeps the clocks running in the hectic 1930s Paris train station where he secretly lives within its walls. But, at its heart, is SCORSESE’S passionate embrace of cinematic history. Beautifully adapted for the screen by JOHN LOGAN, the film stars ASA BUTTERFIELD, CHLOE GRACE MORETZ, BEN KINGSLEY, SACHA BARON COHEN, JUDE LAW and CHRISTOPHER LEE.
As a bitter toy-shop keeper, KINGSLEY brings the right amount of cranky to the mix and, during a press conference to promote the film, he explained his decision to stay in character off-screen as well as on. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
