Criterion Collection collectors look forward to November every year, for that is when Barnes and Noble runs its annual 50% off sale on the labels highly-coveted but expensive catalog of film releases. For those of you who are not familiar with Criterion, they are a movie label that focuses on releasing important classic and contemporary […]
Mattel, who's no stranger to adapting their products into feature films, has partnered with MGM for a movie based on the classic View-Master toy. This marks the second collaboration between the two companies after MGM agreed to shoot another film based on Mattel's American Girl doll brand, according to Deadline. Introduced in 1939, the View-Master […]
The 2019 Academy Awards announced their nominations and in light of the discussion of shocking choices and snubs, I propose another solution: expand the categories. The Academy provides the gold standard of filmmaking, but often it feels the categories provided don't represent the scope of the film industry like science fiction/fantasy films. While it's inspiring […]
I didn't know I needed to see Jodie Foster as Oracle, but I really, really do now after Conan O'Brien held auditions for Batgirl. There are certainly some surprise hopefuls who stop by, and some interesting acting choices, but this is the stuff we love to see from Team CoCo:
When the cast was announced for Hotel Artemis, it was sure to be brilliant: Jodie Foster, Sterling Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Dave Bautista, Charlie Day, and Zachary Quinto. Those actors by themselves are a who's-who list of solid action performances and each also known to be able to push some solid intensity. Then came […]
Netflix has released a featurette for their science-fiction anthology series Black Mirror. In the video, series creator/writer Charlie Brooker explains that the idea for Black Mirror came from the lack of one-off stories being told on television. He saw the trend being for long series about troubled, but fascinating characters… which he was a fan […]
Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster has opinions. Rightly so, most of the time, having navigated the tumultuous world of film (both in front of and behind the camera) for as long as she has. No, that isn't a crack about her age, it's an observation that maybe she knows what she's talking about. That said, Foster has been […]
Superstar actor Jodie Foster had some unkind words to say about superhero movies, and all big-budget Hollywood blockbusters for that matter, during an interview with Radio Times magazine. The Telegraph has the quote from the magazine, in which Foster says that movies have become like theme parks and studios are making "bad content" to appeal […]
This trailer seems more District 9-y then the earlier trailers.
This is actually funnier than a lot of full sitcom episodes I've seen lately, and uncomfortable and dramatic with it. Very promising.
The slow drip feed of Elysium news has just let free another drop.
At the heart of Neill Blomkamp's second feature film, Elysium, is a bold, political diagram. The film's conceit is that Earth has become greatly polluted and impoverished and the richest few have moved off world to Elysium where they live in great luxury. In the footage shown to us in Hall H at Comic Con […]
Bleeding Cool have arrived in San Diego for Comic Con and got to snooping, and we've been sticking our noses where others have yet to tread.
There was a preview screening of Elysium held last night, somewhere in the US. As well as recruiting audience members in cinemas and malls, as has been the case for many a year, the market researchers also issued tickets online. Alongside info on where and when the film would be screening, the online invite included […]
The Beaver, starring Mel Gibson and directed by Jodie Foster, has not been nominated for any Oscars, or indeed any of the other major American film awards. So, you definitely wouldn't expect to see screener copies being sent out now, after all of the slots have already been filled with other pictures. But that's exactly […]
I can't hear this particular bit of Rossini's Thieving Magpie without thinking of A Clockwork Orange (and then, a few seconds later, Jonathan Glazer's superb commercial for Sony Bravia). For me, then, the energy starts building very early in this trailer for Roman Polanski's Carnage. Can't wait.
The reason that this film first grabbed my attention was that it stars Christoph Waltz, and Christoph Waltz playing an American. Widely considered to be one of the greatest things about Inglourious Basterds, Waltz burst onto the US radar after many years of working almost exclusively in Austria and Germany and now he's a pretty […]
This single image seems to be bursting with potential for both high comedy and drama. Here we have John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz in character for Roman Polanski's now-filming Carnage. The film is adapted from Yasmin Reza's play God of Carnage, a pitch-black comedy about two pairs of parents meeting to […]
Sony have made the winning bid and will get to distribute Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, a sci-fi film with Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley. As reports of the picture come through, we're starting to learn more and more about it: It's "an unabashedly big movie" It's set 100 years into the future It is […]
Neill Blomkamp's next picture, Elysium, doesn't have a studio to fund it yet but it does have a very hot director and an increasingly attractive cast. Jodie Foster has just joined Sharlto Copley and Matt Damon in the so-secret-we-only-know-its-genre, sci-fi film. And, seeing as it's so secret there's nothing else to tell you and all […]
