The pride of a father. The love of a wife. The soul of a rebel. The heart of a champion. Roadside Attractions has debuted a trailer for a film titled Tommy’s Honour, about the founders of the modern sport of golf. The film focuses on Tommy Morris, played by Jack Lowden, and his father Tom Morris, played by Peter Mullan, two golfing legends who helped make the sport into what it is today. Set in the 1800s, these two Toms helped redefine the sport at a time when Scottish golfers were considered low-class players. The cast includes Sam Neill, Ophelia Lovibond, Peter Ferdinando, Max Deacon and Paul Reid. This looks like a fine drama about a desire to rewrite the expectations of society, proving that anyone can be successful. ›››

First Mute photos featuring Alexander Skarsgård and Paul Rudd
Netflix has provided a first look at Mute photos from the sci-fi noir film directed by Duncan Jones (Warcraft, Source Code, Moon). It stars Alexander Skarsgård (The Legend of Tarzan, War on Everyone), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, Anchorman 2), Justin Theroux (The Girl on the Train, “The Leftovers”) and newcomer Seyneb Saleh. Check out the Mute photos in the gallery below!
Set in the near-future, Leo (Alexander Skarsgård) is a bartender living in the pulsing city of Berlin. Because of a childhood accident, Leo lost the ability to speak and the only good thing in his life is his beautiful girlfriend Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh). When she vanishes without a trace, Leo’s search for her takes him deep into the city’s seedy underbelly. A pair of wise-cracking American surgeons (Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux) are the only recurring clue and Leo is forced to take on this teeming underworld in order to find his love.
The Netflix original film is directed by Duncan Jones and written by Jones and Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes). Stuart Fenegan serves as producer and Charles J.D. Schissel and Trevor Beattie serve as executive producers.
Mute will launch in all territories where Netflix is available in 2017.

“She opens a doorway between hell, so she can devour the innocent. I think she’s coming for me next…” An international trailer has debuted for a horror thriller titled Don’t Knock Twice. Not to be confused with the indie comedy about an improv group, Don’t Think Twice (which we highly recommend seeing), this film is a creepy horror thriller about a demonic witch. The cast includes Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton, Nick Moran, Javier Botet and Jordan Bolger. This looks dark and moody and scary, most definitely, but it also doesn’t look that original or interesting. Just more creepiness lurking in the dark. Give it a look anyway. ›››

“I think sometimes geniuses are by default lonely and isolated.” HBO has debuted an official trailer for the documentary Becoming Warren Buffett, telling the life story of billionaire Warren Buffett, owner of Berkshire Hathaway, who’s famous for being one of the wealthiest people alive. “With unprecedented access to Buffett’s day-to-day personal life, the film tells the improbable story of how an ambitious, humble, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska—who still lives in Omaha—became one of the richest, most-respected men in the world.” I’m curious about this, but as always I wonder if the filmmakers are too close to Buffett, telling his story in a glamorized way and never lifting up the rug to see what might be hiding underneath. ›››

“This is my life! I had to fight for this…” A trailer has debtued for an indie drama adapted from a stage play called “Blackbird”. The film is titled Una and premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals last year to mixed reviews. Rooney Mara stars as a troubled young woman who comes to a man’s work to confront him about their past, and things get a little crazy. Ben Mendelsohn also stars, and the cast includes Riz Ahmed in a small role, as well as Tobias Menzies and Tara Fitzgerald. While some critics flipped for this film, I found it utterly boring, and it feels way too much like a stage play and not at all like a film (taking place mostly in one drab location). It doesn’t work well as a film, but that’s just my own take. Have a look. ›››

From getting good audio to choosing good costumes, this video covers all the bases of filmmaking for beginners.
For many of us, the way we learned how to make films was simply by making films—horrible, horrible films full of ugly mistakes and shameful regret. (Just me? Didn’t think so.) We used our camera’s built-in microphone for audio. We decided to see what 24 fps looked like mid-project. We tortured our audience gracious moms with super long and tedious expositional scenes.
But, now that the internet is full of helpful videos about how to make better movies, budding filmmakers can learn from other people’s mistakes instead of their own. (Don’t worry, you’ll still learn from the countless other mistakes you’re going to make.) In this video, filmmaker Sebastian Solberg talks about 8 classic noob mistakes in hopes that you can avoid them as you set out on your first project.
Here are the 8 tips mentioned in the video:
