FOXCATCHER

FOXCATCHER – Interview with Bennett Miller

November 25, 2014

Friend of the Angelika Blog Mark Walters recently sat down with director Bennett Miller (MONEYBALL, CAPOTE) to discuss his electrifying new film FOXCATCHER, starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum. Check out the interview below for insight into the casting the film, the extensive makeup for Carell’s dramatic transformation, and how the actor never broke character while filming on set.

 

ABOUT THE FILM:
A searing true-life account of three men grappling with the American Dream. FOXCATCHER tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz. The wrestler seizes an opportunity to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at du Pont’s lavish country estate, but du Pont’s mercurial personality and psychological gameplay begins to weigh heavily on Mark’s shaky self-esteem, undermining his abilities on the mat.

 

FOXCATCHER opens Wednesday 11/26 at the Angelika Dallas. Also playing at the Angelika at Mosaic.

THE IMITATION GAME

THE IMITATION GAME – Exclusive Clip!

Benedict Cumberbatch and Oscar winner Keira Knightly  star in the thrilling true story of Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist, and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII.

In this exclusive clip, featuring Matthew Goode and Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech, the team of codebreakers are in a race against time to decode the Germans’ wartime communications using a captured Enigma machine — but the encryption cypher is reprogrammed by the Germans every 24 hours.

 

THE IMITATION GAME opens 11/28 exclusively at the Angelika New York and the Paris Theatre (NYC), 12/12 at the Angelika at Mosaic, and 12/25 at the Angelika Plano.

THE GREAT INVISIBLE

October 27, 2014

In this thought-provoking documentary which impressed audiences and won the Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival, Peabody Award winning documentarian Margaret Brown (THE ORDER OF MYTHS) explores the fallout of the explosion of Deepwater Horizon, a state-of-the-art offshore drilling rig operated by BP in the Gulf of Mexico. Interweaving personal stories with insight from industry insiders and news footage of the disaster and its aftermath, Brown creates an intimate and emotional look at the many people still haunted by the explosion long after the story has faded from the front page.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark masterpiece of the macabre stars Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. When Marion Crane, spectacularly played by Janet Leigh, ends up at the Bates Motel after making off with $40,000 cash, there’s hardly a film fan alive who doesn’t know what happens next. First a private detective, then Marion’s sister, search for her as the horror and suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.

Angelika After Hours: October

October 1, 2014

Brave the night and join us at After Hours for some of our favorite tales of terror, featuring zombies, vampires, poltergeists, and more to get you in the Halloween spirit:

 

THE LOST BOYS (1987) – 10/3 & 10/4
Joel Schumacher’s teen vampire thriller blends horror, humor, and plenty of visual style with standout performances from a cast full of young 1980s stars. Sam and his older brother Michael are average, everyday teens. But after they move with their mother to peaceful Santa Clara, California, things mysteriously begin to change. THE LOST BOYS reshapes vampire tradition, deftly mixing heart-pounding terror, rib tickling laughs and a body–gyrating rock soundtrack. The marvelous cast includes Jason Patric, Jami Gertz, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman, Corey Haim, Barnard Hughes, Edward Herrmann and Dianne Wiest.

THE SHINING (1980) – 10/10 & 10/11
THE SHINING is Stanley Kubrick’s psychological horror masterpiece, a stylized classic which continues to influence the entire genre. Inspired by Stephen King’s bestselling novel, the film stars Jack Nicholson in one of his most iconic roles – Jack Torrance, an aspiring writer and winter caretaker of the Overlook Hotel. Kubrick’s signature visuals turn the cavernous, empty hotel into one of the most terrifying settings of all time, while classic horror moments from REDRUM to “Heeeeere’s Johnny” to the creepy twins continue to draw rabid fans to this enduring horror favorite.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984) – 10/17 & 10/18
Wes Craven’s intelligent horror classic, complete with the terrifying visual appearance of Freddy Krueger, still causes nightmares to this day. In A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, a group of teenagers are terrorized by an evil being from another world who gets to his victims by entering their dreams and killing them with gloves that have knife blades attached to each finger.

POLTERGEIST (1982) – 10/24 & 10/25
A modern horror classic from producer Steven Spielberg, POLTERGEIST presents the dark side of middle class suburbia. The film centers on a typical family living in the peaceful Cuesta Verde Estates. Soon strange things begin to happen around the house, and five year old Carol Ann is repeatedly drawn to the television before being sucked into a closet, prompting the family to consult with a para-psychologist and an exorcist about the phenomena in their home. They make a horrifying discovery: Carol Ann is alive and in the house, but is being held on another spectral plane.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) – 10/31 & 11/1
George A. Romero’s 1968 cult classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD set the template for zombie films for years to come, with tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent. Following a bizarre event which causes a small town to be overrun by a horde of zombies, the remaining survivors of the local theatre troupe barricade themselves in the building, fighting for their lives. The ensemble cast features a variety of quirky characters, who together must fend off zombie attacks as well as confront their own personal issues if they are going to have any chance of survival.

 

Cult favorites return to the big screen Friday and Saturday nights, exclusively at the Angelika Dallas and Angelika at Mosaic. Tickets are just $7, on sale now at angelikafilmcenter.com.

Angelika After Hours: John Hughes High School

September 15, 2014

Flashback to the 80s and go back to school with the unforgettable teen comedies of John Hughes:

 

WEIRD SCIENCE (1985) – 9/5 & 9/6
Two teens transform their virginal frustrations into a computerized reality in one of the most insanely goofy comedies of the ’80s. Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith play a pair of high-school geeks who are hapless with members of the opposite sex. Using Wyatt’s computer, they create what they believe is the ideal woman. A lightning storm brings that woman to life. Lisa (played by Kelly LeBrock) sets about building their self-confidence, but trouble begins brewing when Wyatt’s older brother (Bill Paxton) begins to realize that something is not as it should be.

THE BREAKFAST CLUB (1985) – 9/12 & 9/13
John Hughes wrote and directed this quintessential 1980s high school drama featuring the hottest young stars of the decade. Trapped in Saturday detention in a prison-like school library are Claire, the princess (Molly Ringwald); Andrew, the jock (Emilio Estevez); John, the criminal (Judd Nelson); Brian, the brain (Anthony Michael Hall); and Allison, the basket case (Ally Sheedy). These five strangers begin the day with nothing in common, each bound to his/her place in the high school caste system. Yet the students bond together when faced with the villainous principal (Paul Gleason), and they realize that they have more in common than they may think.

SIXTEEN CANDLES (1984) – 9/19 & 9/20
It’s Samantha Baker’s Sweet Sixteen and no one in her family remembers the important occasion. John Hughes shows how coming of age can be full of surprises in this warm hearted teenage comedy starring Molly Ringwald. She’s your average teen, enduring creepy freshmen, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the Big Blonde on Campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams. This sparkling film features a dynamic score, and outstanding performances by Paul Dooley, Emmy winner Blanche Baker, and Oscar nominee Justin Henry.

FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (1986) – 9/26 & 9/27
Teenaged Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is a legend in his own time thanks to his uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending to make one last grand duck-out before graduation, Ferris calls in sick, “borrows”; a Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day bacchanal through the streets of Chicago. Dogging Ferris’ trail at every turn is high-school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones), determined to catch Bueller in the act of class-cutting. Iconic 80s writer/director John Hughes weds satire, slapstick, and social commentary in this high school classic.

THE BIG LEBOWSKI (1998) – 8/29 & 8/30
This Coen Brothers cult classic follows the Dude – an unemployed slacker with a penchant for bowling, played by Jeff Bridges. After a case of mistaken identity he goes on a quest to get a new rug and gets pulled into a ransom scheme involving the Big Lebowski’s kidnapped trophy wife. The all-star cast includes John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, Phillip Seymor Hoffman and John Turturro.

 

Cult favorites return to the big screen every Friday and Saturday night, exclusively at the Angelika Dallas and Angelika at Mosaic. Tickets are just $7, on sale now at angelikafilmcenter.com.
