Nope: what on earth is Jordan Peele’s new film about?
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 14:39:45 GMT

The Oscar-winning creator of Get Out and Us has released a mysterious new poster for a film called Nope, causing mass speculation online

Yesterday, seemingly out of the blue, Jordan Peele announced the name and poster of his third movie. The film is called Nope and the poster is a picture of an ominous-looking storm cloud hovering above a mountain village. Do we know what it’s about? Nope. Do we have any sort of insight into the film whatsoever? Nope. Would it be a good idea for us to attempt to extrapolate the premise for the film using nothing but a one-word title and a picture of a cloud? Nope. Are we going to do it anyway? Sure, why not.

How M Night Shyamalan got his groove back
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 13:57:13 GMT

The film-maker’s latest thriller Old marks yet another step back into the public’s good graces after a string of misfires

Like a mushroom – one of the appetizing yet poisonous species, perhaps – M Night Shyamalan thrives in dark, contained spaces. His latest film Old isn’t physically enclosed, the majority taking place on an idyllic tropical inlet with gorgeous vistas of sand, sky and surf, though its visitors will soon learn that this beckoning setting wants to kill them and isn’t so easily escaped. But narratively speaking, it’s a tighter and more focused movie than we’ve seen from the film-maker in some time, and not so coincidentally, it finds him in top form. Planting nearly a dozen characters in a fixed locale, plunging them into terror, and letting the tension mount plays to the strengths of an unpredictable artist who shines under minimal, Twilight Zone-style parameters. The corollary to this notion reveals the fatal flaw that’s dealt his reputation and career so many ups and downs over nearly 30 years of film-making: a tragic excess of ambition.

Will we ever get to see Neill Blomkamp’s mooted District 9 sequel based on ‘American history’?
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 13:17:54 GMT

Blomkamp’s dystopian satire left so many questions unanswered that it simply demands a follow-up – and recent US politics could be the perfect inspiration

The greatest science fiction movies always leave us wanting to know more. Think Alien, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Terminator, Blade Runner, Ex Machina or The Matrix. All are spiked with so much enigma – visions of the future that are only half-explained – that we finish the movie desperate for more information. Was Deckard a replicant? Who built and placed the monoliths? Where did the xenomorphs come from? Should Neo have taken the blue pill? These are the kinds of questions that fuel message board speculation for decades after the movie hit cinemas.

Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 stands up to any of the movies mentioned above in terms of its ability to create a living, breathing science fiction world that both wows the senses with its shocking differences from our own reality and inspires us to look at the inadequacies of our own societal structures. Blomkamp’s ingenious decision to blend the then-fresh found-footage style with racial satire amid the rancid slums of alternate reality South Africa marked out the 2009 film as a rare example of intelligent science fiction on the big screen. It put Sharlto Copley on Hollywood’s radar and briefly saw the director take on the mantle of coming man of futuristic cinema: the middling Elysium followed in 2013, with the underrated Chappie arriving in 2015, but, despite the latter returning us to the mean streets of Jo’burg, Blomkamp’s star never quite recovered its early sparkle.

I secretly enjoy the frazzled aftermath of a big night out | Coco Khan
Fri, 23 Jul 2021 13:00:55 GMT

When I’m hungover, I’m so busy finding everything hilarious that worries about chores go out the window

Every now and again a line from a movie leaps out of the screen and plants itself so firmly in my mind, it could have a tenancy agreement. It happened this week, during my favourite hangover pastime (pizza and Bruce Willis movies).

The film: Die Hard With A Vengeance. Willis’s Detective John McClane, shirtless and bleary-eyed, is woken by the police with the news that he (and only he) must save New York. McClane replies that the inspector has ruined “a perfectly good hangover”.
