DONNIE DARKO: Cult Classic Returns To U.S. Theaters On March 31st

DONNIE DARKO: Cult Classic Returns To U.S. Theaters On March 31st

Arrow Films has announced the March 31st domestic theatrical debut of the 4K restoration of Richard Kelly’s cult hit Donnie Darko. Following a wildly successful re-release in the UK for its fifteenth anniversary, the film will return to theaters in cities across the United States. Fifteen years before “Stranger Things” combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Kelly set the template and the benchmark with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. The 4K restoration of Donnie Darko will premiere at the Vista in Los Angeles on March 30th, and officially open in Los Angeles at the Cinefamily and in New York at Metrograph on March 31st.

Described by director Richard Kelly as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick”, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast: pre-stardom Jake (Nightcrawler, Brokeback Mountain, Nocturnal Animals) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (“The Honourable Woman”, The Dark Knight), Jena Malone (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Neon Demon), the late heartthrob Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Drew Barrymore (E.T., “Grey Gardens”, “Santa Clarita Diet”) Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell (Dances With Wolves, Passion Fish, “Battlestar Galactica”) and Katharine Ross (The Graduate, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Stepford Wives), and television favorite Noah Wyle (“ER”, “Falling Skies”) and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.

The brand-new 4K restoration was produced by Arrow Films from the original camera negatives and supervised and approved by Kelly and cinematographer Steven Poster. The 4K restoration premiered to a packed audience at the National Film Theatre in London on December 17th, 2016, with an introduction by Richard Kelly. A screening of the Director’s Cut followed the next day. The re-release opened nationwide in the UK on December 23rd, eventually grossing £70,000.

Both the theatrical cut and the director’s cut are being made available to venues via a partnership with Cartilage Films, and locations will vary.  

Donnie Darko will also return for weeklong runs in Denver, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Phoenix and San Francisco on March 31st, and in El Paso and Detroit on April 7.

Special screenings include Jacksonville, Austin, Dallas, Honolulu, Lubbock, Baton Rouge, Sioux Falls, Oklahoma City, Tucson, Durham and Stamford throughout March and April.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Ultimate Edition Dazzles!

Blu-ray Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Ultimate Edition Dazzles!

BVS-blu-ray-2016-1

“BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE” ULTIMATE EDITION PROVES ONCE AND FOR ALL WE CAN’T ALL BE ZACK SNYDER”

The most talked about film of 2016, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” hits store shelves July 19 (the film has been on digital platforms since June 28), and our resident Zack Snyder fanboy Jeremy L. Morrison is here to tell you about all the goodies packed on the disc. But first, the plot…

Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it has ever known.

Directed by Zack Snyder, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, Harry Lennix, Scoot McNairy, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, Lauren Cohen, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Carla Gugino, Joe Morton, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Patrick Wilson, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane. The Extended Cut also features Jena Malone, forever our #WCW.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is finally coming out on home video this week and I’d be lying if I said this was an easy wait since the films March 25 theatrical release date. Upon the film’s release, the internet lost its collective mind, quickly becoming the most heated online debate since the advent of the interwebs: “Does BvS suck as bad as angry commenters and quippy journalist say?!”

It is no secret to anyone who follows my exploits on social media, or subscribes to Acid Pop Cult, Icon Vs. Icon’s weekly podcast, that I loved the theatrical cut of the movie. I’m putting that on front street. But if you felt the film had copious problems that ruined your childhood, fear not gentle reader. I, Zack Snyder apologist, I mean, Jeremy Morrison, am here to ease your pain and suffering.

The “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition” features a 182-minute cut of the film that has a large portion of the film’s critics and fans apologizing to Mr. Snyder. The restored 30 minutes of footage, lost upon theatrical release to tighten the film, are being hailed as the most crucial 30 minutes to ever grace the big screen in the history of cinema. Though I don’t agree, I do agree the Ultimate Cut is the superior film because who doesn’t want more Batman and Superman in their life.

The Ultimate Cut features a plethora of added moments and scene extensions that will leave you asking yourself why couldn’t a three hour cut exist from the start. I understand it all comes down to dollars and cents, and perhaps the added 30 minutes would leave a lot of casual cinema-goers skeptical on making the trek to check out the film, but the Ultimate Cut has a fast pace to go along with a jaw-dropping spectacle. If you had a dirty taste in your mouth after leaving the cinema, grab some Scope and wash out your kisser.

Everything the average hater felt was wrong with the film is properly spoon fed in this cut. Did you feel like Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane didn’t have enough going on? Fixed. Featured in the 30 minutes are a well fleshed-out plot showcasing Kent and Lane walking the beat, reporting on social injustices, and figuring out what Luthor is up to. Were you spellbound by Batman’s ability to punch crime in the face like a comic book or video game come to life? Me too! In the extended cut you get added moments of Batman taking out villains like a 20-year veteran. And to add a little something, Snyder and his post department went in and gave us added blood effects, which is pretty sweet. When I envision Batman firing his grappling gun into a shipping crate and launching it into some dummy thug, you’re damn right I want a bloody smear across the wall as said thug falls limp to the ground.

Another fix to the film is Lex Luthor’s already crystal clear plot to take down Superman and Batman by pitting them against each other in battle while he attempts to secure his place as the world’s leader in security. Found within these minutes you’ll see a few more ways he has set out to accomplish this, which is cool because it really beefs up Callan Mulvey’s screen time. In case it wasn’t clear from the theatrical cut, Mulvey plays Anatoli Knyazev, Luthor’s top enforcer and flamethrower aficionado. Knyazev has extended scenes here, most notably in the opening of the film as he and his dummy thugs stage the desert to look like Superman went all Heat Vision happy on innocent terrorists. You’ll also see some CGI bloodflowers. A bloodflower, for the uninitiated, is that crimson spray you see after someone gets hit with a bullet.

And then we come to Jena Malone. Nothing had me happier than seeing Ms. Malone grace the screen for a few short scenes and she was not only NOT Barbara Gordon, she wasn’t Carrie Kelley Robin either. I may sound like a dick here, but for over a year every gossip rag and mouthbreather has weighed in on Malone’s role because they want clicks and shares as they are the first to spoil plot points. You were all wrong and I loved it. Jena actually plays Jenet Klyburn and is more of a DC Comics Easter Egg you won’t get until you see her name in the credits. Jenet comes along at the right time to help Lois figure out what Lex has up his sleeve as she explains some exposition to the audience.

I don’t want to continue to drone on (too late!) about the differences between the two cuts. That has been done a bunch by every other geek site once the film hit digital platforms. Let’s get into the meat and potatoes here, folks. Why you should pick up the three disc set is pretty simple: Bonus content, baby! Here is what you can find on the Ultimate Edition, along with some thoughts to go along with them.

Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice

THE BONUS FEATURE BREAKDOWN:

UNITING THE WORLD’S FINEST – Glimpse the future of DC’s bold new cinematic superheroes. — Hands down the coolest feature on the disc, Uniting the World’s Finest is packed with BTS footage from not only BvS, but new BTS and footage from “Suicide Squad” (Aug. 5) and “Wonder Woman” (2017).

GODS AND MEN: A MEETING OF GIANTS – Become a witness to history as you discover how everything in Batman and Superman’s pasts led up to this ultimate, epic showdown. — Here cast members, DC CCO Geoff Johns, Producers Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, Director Zack Snyder, and a handful of others breakdown more than 75 years of Batman and Superman’s past and what led the creative team to finally bring these titans of comics to the big screen, including some wonderful BTS footage of the two filming their first scene together.

THE WARRIOR, THE MYTH, THE WONDER – Explore the origin, evolution and powerful impact on popular culture by the legendary Amazonian Wonder Woman. — Patty Jenkins (director, “Wonder Woman”) and others talk about Wonder Woman’s social impact over the course of 75 years as well as a fascinating look into the creators of the iconic character.

ACCELERATING DESIGN: THE NEW BATMOBILE – Batman’s newest ride is sleek, tough, loud and fast as hell. Host Sal Masekela goes under the hood of the celebrated vehicle, then puts rubber to the road. — I’m no gearhead, but who doesn’t want a Batmobile?! Sal Masekela joins Production Designer Patrick Tatopoulos, Specialty Vehicles/Batmobile Designer Dennis McCarthy, and their crew as they showcase what went into the creation of one of, if not the greatest, cinematic Batmobile to date. If that’s not cool enough, Stuntman Mike Justus coaches Sal as he takes the iconic vehicle out for a spin.

SUPERMAN: COMPLEXITY & TRUTH – Experience the transformation as Henry Cavill goes from earnest journalist in glasses and tweeds to a powerful godlike being in a streamlined caped costume. — Henry Cavill, Zack Snyder and others talk about the challenges of bringing Clark Kent/Superman to the big screen for the second time, as well as his look for BvS and how, through movie magic, the right stuntman can make you look like a god.

BATMAN: AUSTERITY & RAGE – From cape to cowl and from rugged body armor to carefully-tailored suits, Batman’s outer gear perfectly camouflages and expresses the fury that simmers within. — Zack and Deborah Snyder, Ben Affleck, and Costume Designer Michael Wilkinson break down Bruce Wayne/Batman’s look. Then Property Master Doug Harlocker shows us the new gadgets Batman has to play with and Stuntman Richard Cetrone breaks down his fighting styles. Oh, and abs, ladies. ABS!

WONDER WOMAN: GRACE & POWER – From her gladiator-influenced costume to her shield and sword, she is the mortal incarnation of a warrior goddess. — Gal Gadot, Deborah Snyder and DP Larry Fong bring us up to speed with what it felt like filming this iconic character. Then Cast Trainer Mark Twight and Second Unit Director/Stunt Coordinator Damon Caro talk about getting Gal into peak Amazonian shape and what goes into her fighting style. Also worth a look is how much detail went into her costume and weapons.

BATCAVE: LEGACY OF THE LAIR – Nature and technology exist side by side in Batman’s breathtaking and modernistic subterranean digs. — The ultimate hideout, I’ve always wanted one of my own. Here Patrick Tatopoulos takes us from the sculpture to set, then walks us through showing off gadgets galore.

Batman+v+Superman-+Dawn+of+Justice

THE MIGHT AND THE POWER OF A PUNCH – A dynamic and illustrative look at the power, physics and fascinating details making the battle between Batman and Superman formidable. — An interesting look at the science behind the movie, breaking down just how plausible the third act fight is. Y’know, if they were real people.

THE EMPIRE OF LUTHOR – Dive deeper into the inception of an entirely new interpretation of Lex Luthor, including an examination of his storied history in the comics and what makes him tick. — Here, Jesse Eisenberg, Zack Snyder and others discuss what went into creating a new Lex Luthor for today’s audience. For once it isn’t about real estate. Be happy, trolls.

SAVE THE BATS – Learn how the cast and crew gave back to the environment and brought awareness to a very real ecological problem. — A wonderful organization. For more info go here: savebats.org

SUBTITLES – English (for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing), French, Spanish, Portuguese.

AUDIO – English, English Descriptive Audio, French, Spanish, Portuguese.
An impressive bonus selection for sure. Although, I was a little bummed we didn’t get a feature on Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL’s score. And I would have loved a Maximum Movie Mode, but it’s understandable Zack Snyder and Co. are a little busy filming “Justice League” at the moment.

THE VERDICT: When it’s all said and done, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” Ultimate Edition is rich with content in a day and age where discs are shipped out bare bones, save for a few companies that pick up a cult flick, interview the cast or director and throw out a new edition of the same tired release packaged with a new poster to make you sink in those preorder dollars as soon as it’s announced.

At the end of the day if you loved the theatrical cut, you’ll adore the ultimate cut. If you hated the theatrical cut, you’ll probably think the new cut is a good flick. I, however, urge you to take the chance. If anything all the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Cut,” like the “Unrated Cut of Dawn of the Dead,” the “Extended Cut of Sucker Punch,” “The Director’s Cut of Watchmen” has proven: Zack Snyder is a helluva filmmaker, and … We Can’t All Be Zack Snyder.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition hits Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD on July 19 and is available on Digital HD now!

The Neon Demon: Jena Malone Dazzles In Nicolas Winding Refn’s Sleeper Hit of The Summer

The Neon Demon: Jena Malone Dazzles In Nicolas Winding Refn’s Sleeper Hit of The Summer

This week, genre film aficionado Jeremy Morrison takes a look at Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest offering, “The Neon Demon.” The flick, which is gaining more buzz with each passing day, stars Jena Malone, Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks, Elle Fannning, Abbey Lee, Bella Heathcote, Desmond Harrington and Karl Glusman.

The Plot: Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to Los Angeles just after her 16th birthday to launch a career as a model. The head of her agency (Christina Hendricks) tells the innocent teen she has the qualities to become a star. Jesse soon faces the wrath of ruthless vixens (Abbey Lee Kershaw and Bella Heathcote) who despise her fresh-faced beauty. On top of that, she must contend with a seedy motel manager (Keanu Reeves) and a creepy photographer (Desmond Harrington). As Jesse starts to take the fashion world by storm, her personality changes in ways that could help her against her cutthroat rivals.

The Review: This movie landed on my radar thanks to the fine folks over at Mr. Skin. Knowing next to nothing about the film, other than it promised a few nude scenes, I checked out the trailer and something clicked. I just had to see this film. Admittedly I have yet to see “Drive,” “Bronson” and “Only God Forgives.” Nothing against Nicolas Winding Refn, the films just haven’t found their way to my screen. The trailer for “The Neon Demon” just seemed like my kind of weird.

Arriving at the theater I was a little sketchy. The last time I asked for a solo ticket at the box office was for Rob Zombie’s “Halloween,” and though I have come to terms with the genius that is Rob Zombie’s comedies, at the time I left the theater swearing off all things horror convention chic. Things worked out a bit better this time around. I’m glad I followed my impulse to see the film as soon as possible before my social media feeds were flooded with high praise for the hit or miss film amongst critics and cinephiles alike. And yes, I understand the irony that I too am now flooding YOUR feed with MY opinion.

the-neon-demon

As far as the film itself, “The Neon Demon” is an actor’s dream and a cinematographers wet dream. Elle Fanning is able to capture the deer in headlights quality you’ll see on just about any newcomer to the Los Angeles scene. Keanu Reeves taps into one of his darkest roles yet as he oozes scum through the screen. Bella Heathcote and Abbey Lee Kershaw play up the beautiful bitter bitch side of the model world. But the true standout in this picture is Jena Malone’s Ruby. Malone’s performance is powerful, folks. I won’t break down specifics as I would hate to spoil the experience for potential viewers, but I’ll say she does some of the heaviest lifting in the film and handles it with the ease and grace of a starlet. Can we agree to give Jena Malone all the movies from now on?

'The Neon Demon' is in theaters now!

‘The Neon Demon’ is in theaters now!

If Tumblr taught me anything about Nicolas Winding Refn, it’s his movies look amazing. “The Neon Demon” is no exception. Natasha Braier is behind the lens and proves she is one of the best shooters around. Every scene plays out like a beautiful nightmare. I mean this as respectfully as possible, but “The Neon Demon” looks and feels like Dario Argento’s “Suspiria” shot a hot, thick rope all over a Wes Anderson flick’s chest.

THE VERDICT: SEE IT! TWICE!

Spectacular Limited Edition Book Signed by Zack Snyder – Now Available For Pre-order!

From Warner Bros. Pictures and directed by Zack Snyder (“Watchmen”, “300”), “Sucker Punch” hits movie  screens in March 2011. To celebrate the release of this extraordinary epic action fantasy, Zack Snyder and Titan Books are offering fans an unprecedented opportunity to secure a spectacular limited edition of the official tie-in book ahead of the release of the eagerly awaited film.

In Sucker Punch: The Art of the Film, Zack Snyder takes you on a personal journey through the many worlds and memorable characters of the film, offering a unique insider’s look at amazing concept and design art, as well as a wealth of stunning onset photography by world-renowned Clay Enos (Watchmen: Portraits).

This limited numbered run of only 750 copies is presented in an exclusive slipcase, and signed, on a special tipped-in sheet, by Snyder himself!

Already bursting to the seams with eye-popping art, each Limited Edition will also boast its own breathtaking exclusive giclée print, created and signed by Alex Pardee, the acclaimed artist who has brought his unique style to the film.

I wanted to be able to share that in a meaningful way, beyond what’s captured on screen.”

Sucker Punch takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl, whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary…with potentially tragic consequences.
