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.

Michael Nyqvist, the star of the original Sewdish ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ franchise was born Rolf Åke Mikael Nyqvist in November 1960. He attended the School of Drama in Malmö. He is survived by his wife Catharina and their children Ellen and Arthur. Michael Nyqvist was a terrific actor and on-screen presence. We will miss him so.

Nyqvist’s representative Jenny Tversky reported that he died surrounded by his family after a year-long battle with lung cancer.

XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE — DONNIE YEN POSTER

Xxx_return_of_xander_cage

Either Donnie Yen is drinking from the fountain of youth, or someone took a lot of liberties with this painting for "XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE." Either way, the watercolor is a nice touch.

Cole's Andy Warhol Screentest

Cole 3

No telling what you can get up to at the Warhol museum in Pittsburg. A Warhol screen test perhaps. Thinking of Lou Reed here. Of course, Lou wore shades and drank a Coke.

MATT DILLON TO STAR IN VON TRIER'S LASTEST FILM

The-House-that-Jack-Built

Lars Von Trier has cast the always-terrific Matt Dillon in his 15th film "The House That Jack Built." Dillon will share leading man duties with Bruno Ganz. These two equally matched actors will film Von Trier's in Trollhättan, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark.

Von Trier describes the film as follows, "USA in the 1970s. We follow the highly intelligent Jack over a span of 12 years and are introduced to the murders that define Jack's development as a serial killer. We experience the story from Jack's point of view, while he postulates each murder is an artwork in itself. As the inevitable police intervention is drawing nearer, he is taking greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate artwork. Along the way we experience Jack's descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge - a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and psychopathic explanations. The House That Jack Built is a dark and sinister story, yet presented through a philosophical and occasional humorous tale."

Matt-dillon

Although unconfirmed, it seems likely that Ganz will play the serial killer, but it may very well be the younger Dillon who dons the mask of the '70s era psychopath. Jack the Ripper is getting some serious competition.

KING COBRA — TRAILER

Releasing on October 21, 2016 (probably in a roll-out release across the U.S.), this movie has star-power with James Franco and Christian Slater in juicy roles. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but this crime drama looks promising.
