  |  @   |  

Just a few weeks ago we saw Wes Anderson‘s holiday short/ad for H&M. So while it may have looked like Anderson took a long vacation, but the filmmaker has been hard at work. And he isn’t just releasing shorts.

We’ve known that he’s been putting together his next film, a stop-motion animated feature all about dogs on an island. Now we know who will star in the film as the director has announced the full cast and shooting location for Isle of Dogs. Check out the video announcement below.

“Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don’t give a f*ck how crazy they are!”

Twenty years ago, my father took a young 13-year old to the movie theater to see From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie was written by Quentin Tarantino who I had recently dubbed my idol after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time, and directed by Robert Rodriguez who did Desperado, another of my early favorites. It has since become something of a legend to us, and the phrase “don’t tell Mom” is part of the family vernacular. So when Fathom Events and Miramax put From Dusk Till Dawn back in the theaters, I knew I had to carry on family tradition and take my 12-year-old son to it. Sure, From Dusk Till Dawn is very rated-R. But this was a rite of passage.

Retro Movie Review: ‘Taxi Driver’ 40th Anniversary Screening – Fathom Events
  |  @   |  

Fathoms Events and Sony Pictures presents a chance to see one of the greatest and craziest films of all time, Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver in U.S. theaters again this week. Celebrating the film’s 40th anniversary, Taxi Driver drives back to cinemas for only one more day, Wednesday, October 19th. I got a chance to go to a showing on Sunday in New York City. I’d argue the real star of the film is New York City itself. The city pulses throughout; the filth and degradation of the 1970s feels hundreds of years removed, not a mere 40.

Taxi Driver features the definition of “all-star cast,” headlined by Oscar-winner Robert De Niro as the film’s notorious anti-hero Travis Bickle. Joining him are future two-time Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who was 14 when the movie debuted in 1976. Cybill Shepherd, Albert Brooks, Peter Boyle, and Harvey Keitel round out the cast. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor (De Niro), Supporting Actress (Foster), and Score (the amazing Bernard Herrmann).

‘Taxi Driver’ Hitting Theaters For 40th Anniversary Through Fathom Events
  |  @   |  

Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver is coming back to the big screen for a limited run in honor of the film’s 40th anniversary.

In 1976, Scorsese introduced us to Vietnam veteran Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro), a deranged New York City cabbie who enjoyed pornographic films, stalking political candidates, and had a penchant for blondes. The film was gritty, intense, and violent, and Bickle became an anti-hero for the post-Nixon era. It garnered four Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor (Robert De Niro), Best Supporting Actress (Jodie Foster), and Best Score (Bernard Herrmann). The film was written by Paul Schrader, the first of his three collaborations with the acclaimed Oscar-winning director. Thanks to Fathom Events & Sony Pictures Entertainment, Taxi Driver is returning to U.S. theaters for two days only this October in preparation for its two-disc 40th anniversary edition Blu-Ray release on November 8, 2016.
