Latest news for ‘Hallam Foe‘ is that the film got a limited release in US theatres last Friday, June 6. Remember, the film is playing under the new title ‘Mister Foe‘. I don’t know in what cities the film is actually playing so if anyone has any info on that it’d be greatly appreciated.
‘Outlander‘ was screened for the first time in its entirety at the film market during the Cannes Film Festival last month. Those were industry screenings so feedback is scarce. However the ever so brilliant Outlander website came across a promising short review by Fangoria:
Unashamedly crowd-pleasing is Howard McCain’s epic science-fiction/fantasy OUTLANDER, the final film seen in Cannes. Jim Caviezel is an intergalactic astronaut who crashes his spaceship in 700 A.D. Norway and unleashes a giant alien creature on the local Viking population. Big, glossy and hugely enjoyable, it commingles fun adventure cliches with wildly unhistoric abandon, all acted with solid conviction by Caviezel, John Hurt, Perlman and Sophia Myles. There’s gore aplenty, the thrills are nonstop and the neon-etched CGI monster is pretty damn good too.
The film seems to have a definite release date in France (
July 30 pushed back to August 15) and I sure hope we’ll soon get a trailer!
Various places have reported that Sophia Myles is busy shooting a new movie called ‘Buddha’s Little Finger‘. That is not true. The film never got the greenlight as long as Sophia was attached (which was months before she got the part in ‘Moonlight‘). Should it really be in production now – as the IMDb is reporting – it is without Sophia.
