After getting burned quite badly by his highly decisive High-Rise at last year’s Festival, I was a little skeptical to give Director Ben Wheatley’s Midnight Madness opener Free Fire a chance this year.
But I am very glad I did – because I freaking loved every moment of it.
Wheatley’s stylish and wildly unpredictable ode to ‘70s Crime-Thrillers is a blast from start to finish, rarely slowing down to breathe over the course of its 90-minute running time. What starts as a typical weapons deal devolves into a bloody, merciless and quick-witted Mexican standoff inside a sprawling abandoned warehouse. Everyone is in it for themselves, even turning on each other, hoping to be the last one standing to leave with a briefcase full of money.
The character set-up is minimal before chaos erupts, but each cast member seems to slide perfectly into their role. I have never seen Armie Hammer have as much fun or look nearly as cool under pressure as he does here. Sharlto Copley is pure manic insanity, continuing his string of standout, nonsensical character performances. Cillian Murphy is never afforded the time to cut loose, surprisingly staying narrow and calculating throughout. And fresh off her Oscar-winning turn in Room, Brie Larson turns heads as the only female in this room – who is just as lethal and desperate as the rest.
Free Fire is a lot of bloody fun, and the kind of genre film that audiences at Midnight Madness are going to go crazy for. Do not miss out.
FREE FIRE screens at TIFF ’16 on Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 11:59 PM and Friday, September 9, 2016 at 11:30 AM at the Ryerson Theatre.
After winning the coveted TIFF 2015Midnight Madness Award, HARDCORE HENRY (formerly known as Hardcore), soon will get a theatrical release!
Strap in. Hardcore Henry is an original film that was shot completely from the hero’s perspective. You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky); he’s a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He may be on your side, but you aren’t sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You’re likely going to need it…
The Trailer for HARDCORE HENRY debuts during a special two-hour live event on Wednesday, February 10th between 9-11 PM (EST). The event will air on summit1g‘s Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/summit1g).

Rain continues to literally put a damper on TIFF ’15 Festivities, but hopefully this is the end of it! Cloudy skies aside, Toronto continues to light-up on star power alone and here’s some stars we spotted today!
Kristen Stewartat TIFF ’15 for Equals looking amazing. Unfortunately due to lateness and the weather she didn’t’ come by to greet fans but she certainly was a vision!
Tom. Easily the most giving man of TIFF ’15. Hardy literally stood in the rain both last night and today at a Press Conference and greeting literally every Fan. Champ. He is here to promote Legend along with Emily Browning.
Although we saw a small Teaser a while back for Robot Action Flick CHAPPIE, we didn’t expect it to be the suspenseful, high-octane affair that it truly is! You must see this new Trailer for what sure will be a big Blockbuster to get us out of the Winter doldrums.
From the director of District 9 and Elysium comes Chappie, starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, with Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman. Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings — some good, some bad — and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from any one else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. That’s a dangerous idea — and it’s a challenge that will pit Chappie against powerful, destructive forces that would ensure that he is the last of his kind.

“There is evil in this World. Hatred. And Revenge.”.
Dazzling! You must check-out this brand new 90-second Teaser for MALEFICENT starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. Jolie looks in fine form, rocking some serious Cheekbones – delightfully evil!
If you listen carefully you might just recognize the voice singing over the Trailer. Correct! It’s Lana Del Rey performing her Once Upon a Dream, the Track which will featured in the Film’s Closing Credits!
MALEFICENT explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic Sleeping Beauty and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.
The Film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
