This time we have a film which has been remade multiple times. However, we’re choosing to focus on the best of those remakes. This week, Cinelinx looks at Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).
Closed Circuit is part international suspense thriller, part courtroom drama with a terrorism twist and tons of intrigue. Focus Features has offered up not only a trailer for the film, but also a Secrets Behind the Camera featurette detailing some major highlights of the story. Throw MI6 into the mix and audiences can't help but think life in peril, mystery and danger, with a healthy dose of mortal jeopardy. Starring Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Jim Broadbent, Ciaran Hinds and Julia Stiles, this is bound to be a thrilling conspiracy. Come on in and find out what Closed Circuit is all about.
It’s not often that someone who is well known for what they do just decides to quit in order to try something else. Yet, that’s just what Steven Soderberg claims to be doing. Side Effects is his last film for theatrical release. As one of his final projects, it is a solid representation of his style and contribution to film as an art form.
Zero Dark Thirty is unique in that it not only depicts the historic event that marked the end of the post 9/11 era in American history, but the movie itself feels like it marks the end of an era of film making as well. Fortunately, being of historical importance is not the film’s best attribute; it’s also highly enjoyable and exciting to watch.
