This is not a list of the best movies of 2013. This is simply a list of the best posters. Some represent their movie perfectly. Some actually sell a better, more different movie. But out of the hundreds of one-sheets released this year, these are the 10 that we love the most.
'S#x Acts' ('Six Acts'), the Israeli drama so provocatively named as to immediately and directly conjure the title 'Sex Acts,' follows teenager Gili, a new high school transfer who sets about trying to charm the boys at her school by seducing them. Her story is told in chapters, punctuated by sexual encounters that escalate in their increasing intensity and discomfort. 'S#x Acts' is a subtle film that provokes questions about female agency and pressure, and investigates what happens when the lines between "want," "desire" and "should" on a young woman's moral compass become hopelessly blurred.
If ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ is a film about being chosen for success, Oscar Issac is Hollywood’s latest choice. The young actor has distinguished himself in a wide variety of roles over the past few years, including turns in ‘Nativity Story,’ ‘Robin Hood,’ ‘Sucker Punch’ and ‘Drive’ among many others, but taking the title role in the Coen brothers’ latest film catapults him to a new level of opportunity, offering new challenges, and of course, bigger rewards. And in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis,’ he plays the role to the hilt, utilizing the Coens’ idiosyncratic creativity to create a portrait of a struggling musician that is at once blindingly specific and spectacularly universal.
Isaac sat down with us in Los Angeles to talk about the challenges of the role. In addition to discussing how the Coens complement his performance with a context that enriches the character, he explained what he felt like the film was about, for him, and finally revealed his thought process as he embarks on the next phase of a career that is growing exponentially with each new role he takes on.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' director Bryan Singer recently announced that the sequel to his ultimate mutant team-up will be 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' coming on May 27, 2016. While no other information was revealed at the time, it is presumed to take its name from one of the most powerful beings in the X-Men universe and perhaps even one of his most famous comic-book arcs, 'Age of Apocalypse.'
But who is this end-of-times mutant? For those unfamiliar, here's a brief intro to this classic comic-book villain.
With Marvel building towards future 'Avengers' films, Warner Bros. building 'Batman vs. Superman' towards a 'Justice League' movie and Sony expanding 'The Amazing Spider-Man' universe, you knew it was only a matter of time before Fox announced some big plans for their superhero films. With 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' melding the two 'X-Men' franchises, now it looks like they're going to also combine the 'X-Men' films with the new 'Fantastic Four' reboot into one big universe.
Director Bryan Singer announced Thursday that the next film to follow 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' will bear the name of 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and hit on May 27, 2016. With no other information to go on, the film is merely presumed to take its name from the Apocalypse character in the comics and perhaps even the storyline 'Age of Apocalypse.' However, more details have shed some light on this title that through the Internet into a frenzy.
Argued by many to be one of Kevin Smith's best films, 'Chasing Amy' follows the story of comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck), who falls in love with lesbian Alyssa, throwing his friendship with his best friend and work partner into upheaval. Released in 1997, the romantic comedy was the third in Smith's "Jersey Tales" series of films and also featured regular stars Jason Lee and Jason Mewes. Sixteen years later, we take a look back at the cast and see where they are now.
