Wonder Woman (NEW) and Blade Runner 2049 Trailers


It's no secret that the DC Comics has tried desperately to keep pace with Marvel's massive film universe and the results have been lackluster to date. Yet, DC  hopes that all changes soon with the upcoming releases of Wonder Woman this summer and Justice League in November. Gal Gadot continues her role as Diana Prince, a prehistoric princess trained to be an unbeatable warrior. Fast forward many, many years and Prince uses her alter ego of Wonder Woman to resolve a world-threatening conflict. Wonder Woman is meant to set up Justice League, DC's answer to The Avengers, making Gadot and company's film a pivotal moment in the newly expanding DC film universe. Check out the latest trailer for the June 2nd release below.





Ridley Scott's pioneering 1982 sci-fi thriller, Blade Runner, is getting the sequel treatment. And while many will naturally respond with a rolling of the eyes, and perhaps rightfully so, there's an enormous reason for optimism knowing that Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival & Sicario) is at the helm of this sacred reboot. Set three decades after the original, Ryan Gosling stars as a new Blade Runner who discovers a shocking secret that could plunge the world into chaos. The only way to stop this impending doom is to enlist the help of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who's been missing for 30 years. Blade Runner 2049 has all the makings of a successful sequel, as we're given a new look into this October release.

The Glass Castle

Destin Cretton is anything but a household name. Yet, the gifted filmmaker turned heads with his massively overlooked 2013 drama, Short Term 12. The effort bridged together Cretton's singular story and vision with the remarkable acting talents of Brie Larson. Since then Larson has gone on to win an Academy Award (Room), but her career comes full circle in her latest collaboration with Destin Cretton in the adapted film The Glass Castle.

Told non-chronologically through various flashbacks, The Glass Castle follows the unconventional childhood of gossip columnist and eventual Best-Selling author Jeannette Walls (Larson). Prior to her career as a writer, Walls grows up under the dysfunctional supervision of her alcoholic father (Woody Harrelson) and her amateur artist mother (Naomi Watts). But as Jeannette and her siblings begin to mature and fully comprehend their squatter-lifestyle and impoverished upbringing, they must work together to escape the clutches of their deadbeat parents.


ATHIRAH (2016) REVIEW : Urgensi, Relevansi, dan Intimasi dalam Film Biografi

Urgensi, kata yang tepat dan selalu menjadi poin menarik di setiap film-film tentang seseorang atau biografi. Menilik tujuan seperti apa yang ingin diwujudkan lewat beberapa sineas setelah menyelesaikan proyek film biografi. Beberapa poin ini memang terkadang masih terkesan bias, karena masih ada kepentingan politik yang berusaha ingin disampaikan. Memang, film sejatinya bisa digunakan sebagai alternatif penyampaian pesan, film memiliki misi dari pembuatnya. Sehingga, metode ini kerap digunakan sebagai medium untuk membangun atau mengembalikan sebuah citra.
Juga ada Relevansi, kata yang tepat setelah menonton sebuah film biografi.

#10. Matthew McConaughey - Interstellar (2014)

The apex of the “McConaissance” came when McConaughey, fresh off an Academy Award win for Best Actor, signed on to star in Nolan’s big-budget sci-fi epic, with an ensemble that included its fair share of Oscar winners and nominees.  Heading this cast in impressive fashion, McConaughey’s Cooper perfectly embodies the rural American family man who can’t deny his dormant thrill for exploration when he’s chosen to lead a team through a wormhole in hopes of discovering a new home for Earth’s inhabitants.  Coop’s great balance of heart, herois…
