While they have a major rest of the year with Argo, Cloud Atlas and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Warner Bros is now filling out some of their 2013 calendar. For those expecting an update on Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity, which was previously set to open next month before getting a vague 2013 date, you will be massively disappointed.
Moving on to some concrete news, they’ve moved their horror film The Conjuring, directed by Insidious‘ James Wan, from a January bow to the prime summer location of July 19th. Starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, it will now open against R.I.P.D. and the animation Turbo. They’ve also set a March 15th release for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, the magician comedy starring Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin and Jay Mohr. It will now square off against the comedy 21 and Over and the remake of Carrie.
In other comedy news, they’ve set an August 9th bow for We’re the Millers, the pot comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Will Poutler and Emma Roberts. It’s got some big competition, going up against Sony’s blockbuster RoboCop. And last, but certainly not least, we move into drama territory as the next film from Incendies director Denis Villeneuve, Prisoners, has been given a September 20th release. Starring Hugh Jackman, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal and Melissa Leo, it will be up against the Chris Hemsworth racing drama Rush and I’d expect both to premiere at TIFF.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week.

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
