Prepare to feel the heat of Texas in the dog days of summer, Rogues, because we have an evocative piece of key art from a dusty desert crimewave the likes of which you've never before witnessed.
That's right, IAR is proud to premiere the first look at the poster for this June's Rushlights, the rare thriller that takes the duplicitous turns of a twisty, sexy noir and transplants them to a fresh new setting that illuminates the genre's dark corners.
Let's get this out of the way: This constitutes SPOILERS for anyone who has yet to see Iron Man 3. So if you're still holding off on seeing the latest Marvel Studios release – all of the latest Marvel Studios release – then bookmark this and return once you've thrilled to the third Iron Man solo adventure.
Of all the headlining superheroes in last summer's The Avengers, the one who made the biggest impression was smashing, brawling Hulk and his human alter ego, the always-angry Dr. Bruce Banner, played by Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo. While Phase Two in the Marvel Studios master plan includes sequels for Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, everyone's favorite green rage monster has a less obvious onscreen future.
In an exclusive discussion with IAR, Mark Ruffalo himself has offered some insight on what's in store for Bruce Banner and his other, more destructive half.
Simon Killer, now playing in limited release, is a cinematic reminder of the old adage that looks can be very, very deceptive.
The film follows Simon, a seemingly ordinary American fresh out of college who, like so many young before him, has traveled to Paris in order to mend his recently broken heart. For a while, Simon embodies the cliche of the young tourist in Paris, hanging out in streetside cafes, joining the tourists seeing the Mona Lisa, and feebly flirting with French women.
When Simon encounters a sweet, beautiful prostitute in the Pigalle district, his isolation is finally lessened. But the story doesn't proceed according to cliche. As layer after layer of the title character are peeled back, Simon Killer morphs from an erotic drama to a horrifically brutal, absolutely harrowing chronicle of a damaged, sociopathic psychology.
To say any more would be revealing too much. An independent film through and through, Simon Killer debuted to much praise at last year's Sundance Film Festival. Thanks to IFC Films, this unique movie is now playing on screens in limited release and is also available via Video On Demand.
IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the opportunity to sit down with writer-director Antonio Campos and star Brady Corbet, who plays Simon, for an exclusive interview about their new film. The duo discussed the somewhat unconventional writing of Simon Killer, the difference between directing and producing, casting Victoria, collaborating with one another, and shooting in Paris.
Strap on your skates and prepare to get cross-checked, Rogues, because on this most ostentatious Monday, we have a treat that will have you hitting the ice in no time.
IAR is proud to host the exclusive premiere of the poster art for Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story.
Director Danny Boyle has not only confirmed exclusively to IAR that he's planning a sequel to Trainspotting for 2016, the twentieth anniversary of his breakout film's release, but he has also shared his thematic approach to the continuing adventures of Renton and his assorted Scottish compatriots.
It's been eight years since Sin City set a new standard for fidelity to source material in a comic book adaptation, essentially using Frank Miller's Dark Horse comic as storyboards. Since then, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Miller have promised a sequel. For years, that sequel looked like a pipe dream.
But Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently scheduled to hit theaters in 2D and 3D on October 4th.
When the follow-up finally came together last year, Rosario Dawson was one of the first Sin City actors to enthusiastically announce her renewed participation. Now that she has completed her work on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dawson is talking exclusively to IAR about playing Gail again after such a long break, promising that the return to Basin City will be "incredible."
With its time-travel story allowing two generations of mutants to appear together in the same film, next year's X-Men: Days of Future Past has inspired a tremendous amount of anticipation, chatter, and hearsay well before a frame of film has been shot.
Today, though, we have an exclusive update from no less a source than James McAvoy, who reprises his role as the younger Professor Charles Xavier in the sequel, scheduled for nationwide release on July 18, 2014. The actor confirmed that he has read finally read the top-secret screenplay and promised that the film will provide fans with "something different, new, and unexpected."
Later this year, Jessica Alba will star in not one, but two different sequels for director Robert Rodriguez.
These sequels, Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, are set for nationwide release within just weeks of each other, and even though they're both more than eight months away, Alba is sharing some exclusive insights on the Machete and Sin City follow-ups.
No less a source than Cobie Smulders – S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Maria Hill – is sharing some inside information on next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the possibility that we'll see the character in action on the S.H.I.E.L.D. television series.
When we last saw Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels at the end of Dumb & Dumber almost two decades ago, Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne were trudging along a highway, having missed their opportunity to become Hawaiian Tropic greaseboys.
We will discover their fate, though. According to co-director Peter Farrelly in an IAR exclusive, the sequel, tentatively titled Dumb & Dumber To, is definitely happening.
