“You wanted me to fight?” The Match Factory has released a new official trailer for an Iranian drama titled A Man of Integrity, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival before going on to play at a bunch of other festivals this year. The film is about a humble, hard-working man who runs a goldfish farm on his property in a small Iranian town. He tries to keep his life and his business legitimate and clean, until the corruption surrounding him begins to put pressure on his livelihood. This trailer reveals a lot of the story, so watch out, but it’s a very hard sell otherwise. The film stars Reza Akhlaghirad, Soudabeh Beizaee, and Nasim Adabi. I saw this film in Cannes and it’s damn good, but also super depressing. It’s a sad story of an honest man just trying to be good in an endlessly corrupt world. It’s still worth it to watch a film from Iran. ›››

As of the end of the day Wednesday, the month-to-date gross is less than $ 6 million shy of becoming the largest September ever. Much of the month’s $ 620+ million is thanks to the record performance from It, which has grossed over $ 272 million domestically and $ 500 million globally. The month should become the largest September ever by the end of day today and this weekend offers one last chance to add to the total with new releases including Tom Cruise’s American Made and Sony’s Flatliners …

I think every filmmaker at some point gets sucked into the 48 Hour Film Project. If you’re unfamiliar, here’s the jist of it: filmmakers pay an entrance fee and gather a cast and crew together for a weekend shoot. On Friday evening, they are given a genre, a line of dialogue, a character and a […]
“If you want to survive this fantasy world, think outside the boxes.” Holy mackerel, this looks amazing!! Gravitas has unveiled an official trailer for an indie comedy titled Dave Made a Maze, about an artist who builds a huge fort in his living room out of cardboard. The clever concept here is that as soon as you enter the maze, it turns into something much bigger. Dave builds the maze out of pure frustration, only to end up trapped by the “fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation.” This stars Nick Thune, Meera Rohit Kumbhani, James Urbaniak, Stephanie Allynne, Kirsten Vangsness, plus Scott Krinsky. Ohh it looks like it’s going to be so, so much fun, kind of like Michel Gondry meets the Duplass Brothers, or something like that. This really does seem like a certified instant cult classic. I’m ready to enter. ›››

Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer and director James Gunn has confirmed he’ll be back to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which has not yet announced a release date.
Gunn dropped the announcement on his Facebook page, explaining that he’d only come to the decision after a lot of thought. “I needed to know it was, in my heart, what I truly felt called to do,” he wrote. “I have never made choices in my career based on anything other than passion and love for the stories and characters, and I didn’t want to start now.” Read more…
