HAPPY END — Trailer & Poster

Happy_end

You had me at Michael Haneke. And then you add Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant, and we've got a very promising movie on hand. Really looking forward to seeing the latest effort from Haneke!

 

THE POST — TRAILER & POSTER

Post

Steven Spielberg's latest movie has crowd-pleaser written all over it for the 50+ generations to which it is clearly aimed. Streep and Hanks are showing their age. It's a reminder that we won't always have these great artists around with us. So, regardless of how predictably tame the narrative about the Washington Post leaking the Pentagon Papers might seem by today's standards of Wikileaks reporting, get out and see this movie. Even if it flops at the box office, "The Post" will be a success.

BOOKSHOP — POSTER

Bookshop

This is one of those movie posters that draws you in. I love how the line on Emily Mortimer's skirt reflect the bindings of the books beside her. With its great cast and old fashioned imagery, "The Bookshop" makes you want to see it.

"Set in a small town in 1959 England, it is the story of a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield."

Harry Dean Stanton Retrospective at New York's Quad Cinema

Beginning September 22nd 


Few actors are as recognizable in American movies as Harry Dean Stanton. The singularly mild-mannered face of the New Hollywood, his repertoire expands to dozens of appearances in beloved studio, cult and independent movies, with only a handful of starring roles to his name. In a career spanning more than 60 years, Stanton’s inimitable, gently hangdog persona revealed a capacity for harebrained agitation and profound melancholy that prove equally disarming, all while never less than at ease on camera. Stanton has worked with many of the most important names in international cinema, from Sam Peckinpah to Wim Wenders to David Lynch.
 
On occasion of his starring role in Lucky (opening September 29 courtesy of Magnolia Pictures)—and keeping in mind critic Roger Ebert’s famous proclamation that no film with his presence could be without merit—the Quad is proud to present a wide-ranging selection of his most memorable roles.

TOM CRUISE INJURED ON MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 6 SHOOT

From the looks of it, Tom Cruise probably sustained a few cracked ribs and perhaps a broken knee when he attempted to jump from a scaffolding to the roof of a building in London during filming of a scene for his upcoming film "Mission Impossible 6." The film is scheduled for release in July 2018.

Known for performing many of his own stunts, Tom Cruise might want to reconsider leaving such dangerous maneuvers to professional stunt men. While no reports have yet been released about the extent of Cruise's injuries, it seems certain that a visit to a hospital and a period of recovery are in order for the actor whose bravery regarding stunts is unassailable. This is one painful video clip to watch.

UPDATE: It has been reported that Cruise broke two bones, and will be unable to continue filming "Mission Impossible 6" for a minimum of eight weeks.

UPDATE: As of Thursday August 17, it is reported that Tom Cruise broke his right ankle and his hip in the accident.
