1987: 13-year-old Bruce Garrett, a natural born salsa dancer with fire in his heels and the world at his feet, is perfectly poised to clinch the title at the UK Junior Salsa Championships. But then… a freakish bullying incident on the mean streets of London robs him of his sequins and his confidence, and our young hero finds his life diverted down a very different path. So it is that 25 years later, an adult Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost), finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and emotionally inert – trapped in a downward spiral of self pity. It takes Julia (Rashida Jones), his smart, funny, gorgeous new American boss, to force him to confront the demons of his past and re-examine his passionless existence. Bruce fears it's an impossible challenge – she's way out of his league ("She's a 10, I'm a 2!") and long held self doubts prove tricky to shed. Luckily for him, Julia also has a secret passion… salsa dancing. Maybe, just maybe, this is his way in… But life is never that easy for Bruce. First he's got to get past Drew (Chris O’Dowd), the oversexed alphamale of the office and Bruce's tirelessly taunting team manager. With Drew making no secret of his desire to make Julia his latest conquest, Bruce is forced into action and brought face-to-face with his darkest and most powerful inner demons. Somehow, with a lot of handholding from loyal sister Sam (Olivia Colman), his old mentor Ron (Ian McShane) and crazy new amateur salsa pal Bejan (Novak) Bruce must learn to unshackle his dancing beast, regain his long lost fury and claim the love of his life… and he’s got to do it all On The Dance Floor… The producers of Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim, Paul, Attack The Block, The World’s End and Sightseers bring together some of the finest comedy talent with some of the world's best salsa dancers. With a thumping score, a dash of sequins and a large squeeze of comedy and romance, Cuban Fury is a movie cocktail that satisfies like no other.

‘Kung Fury’ Released On YouTube In All Its ’80s-Inspired Glory

“Kung Fury” is finally here, and it’s as ridiculously awesome as you’d expect.

The crowdfunded short film about a time-traveling cop on a quest to kill Adolf Hitler was released on YouTube on Thursday to the delight of the legions who turned the movie’s 2013 trailer into a viral sensation.

The result is exactly what that trailer promised: an homage to ’80s cop flicks and martial arts films, right down to a dialogue packed with groan-worthy one-liners.

Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg, who also wrote the film, stars as the title character. He becomes a kung fu legend after being struck by lightning and bitten by a cobra. On his journey to fight the Kung Führer, he encounters a cop with a triceratops head (aptly named Triceracop), Viking warrior women named Barbarianna and Katana, a laser-raptor, Thor and more.

And watch for the best fight scene you’ll ever see between a T-Rex and a Nazi robot-eagle.

The film even features a theme song and music video by 80s icon David Hasselhoff, which you can check out below.

The viral trailer for “Kung Fury” helped Sandberg raise over $ 600,000 from more than 17,000 backers on Kickstarter. The final production contains hundreds of wild visual effects created by VFX house Fido using Autodesk Maya 3D animation software.

Despite its humble origins, the film made its debut earlier this month at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, and production is expected to get under way soon on a feature-length “Kung Fury” film.

It’s going to be a clean slate, loosely based on the same story,” Sandberg told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month. “But it’s going to have a lot of new elements, and you’ll get to know the characters more and go more in depth and go even more crazy.”

Zaki’s Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

I was first exposed to director George Miller’s Mad Max series in 1987 when, at age seven, I watched the trilogy capper Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome during its premium cable run. I didn’t understand much of it at the time, but I loved it all the same. It wasn’t until several years later that I watched the preceding entries in the series, and they left even more of a mark. Especially the second one, The Road Warrior (a.k.a. Mad Max 2). Today, Miller’s post-apocalyptic playground remains as vivid and well-realized as when it debuted, and the franchise remains a favorite.

Thus, as the latest Max entry, Fury Road, moved through development hell, going from potentiality to actuality, with Miller himself at the helm to shepherd his creation once again, I tried very hard to keep my excitement level in check. After all, the last time a director named George brought back a beloved brand after an extended interregnum…well, things didn’t go so well. “Please,” I thought to myself, sending a silent prayer to the movie gods, “after The Phantom Menace, after the Planet of the Apes remake, after Superman Returns, after Indiana Jones, just give me this one.”

And by George, he’s done it. I waited twenty-eight years for Mad Max: Fury Road, and I’m so glad it’s not terrible.

Featuring Tom Hardy in the role that first launched Mel Gibson’s star into the stratosphere, Fury Road is a worthy addition to the canon, one that recognizes there was nothing wrong with the setting as established in the extant trilogy, and as such, there’s no need to follow the current Hollywood vogue of tearing the whole thing down in order to start from scratch. This is a continuation rather than a contradiction. More than that, it represents a welcome return by George Miller to the kind of anarchic action he hasn’t directed in the three decades since Thunderdome.

The story (by Miller, Brendan McCarthy, and Nick Lathourisy) is deceptively simple. Wandering the nuclear irradiated outback of near-future Australia, ex-cop Max Rockatansky is captured and held prisoner by minions of Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), a despotic madman who hides his disfigured face and body behind ceremonial death’s head armor and uses his control of the limited water supply to keep his subjects duly chastened. When his trusted aide Furiosa (Charlize Theron) uses the occasion of a supply run to escape from his clutches along with several of his concubines (some of whom are in a family way), Max finds himself inadvertently drawn into the chase.

As with the previous Max movies, there isn’t any real attempt at serialization or continuity, but this is the same Max he’s always been. Sure, he may look and sound like Tom Hardy now, but as before, he’s still (despite his best efforts) the good guy who can’t help but help others, so we know where he’ll land in this particular conflict. What follows is an amped-up version of the final act chase sequence in 1981’s Mad Max 2. While that one impressively sustained its energy for twenty-some minutes, Fury Road broadens its scope, serving essentially a two-hour chase punctuated by occasional moments to catch one’s breath.

One of the narrative beauties of these films is the way they exist outside of time, where even the passage of literally decades between entries does nothing to diminish it feeling like part of a contiguous whole with its predecessors. The events of the nuclear exchange that serve as backstory for the Mad Max universe are so vague as to have occurred anywhere and anywhen. What’s left then is the madcap anarchy that is this world, with Miller sprinkling details of life in nuked-out Australia in without context or explanation, leaving it for audiences to decipher their significance.

Such is the case with Fury Road. The bizarre stratification in Immortan Joe’s cultish organization is laid out for us quickly, almost as a throwaway, just enough so that we have a sense of who to root for and who to toss tomatoes at. In a way it’s even more impressive how well Miller and Co. are able to draw us in as the chase plays out. And speaking of the chase, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the effects. The glorious practical effects. In an age of increasing CGI overload, where every possible stunt we imagine can be realized in a computer’s hard drive, there’s no substitute for actual cars actually smashing into each another.

In terms of the cast, they’re standouts across the board. This marks Theron’s second appearance in a long-dormant franchise reboot (after 2012’s mezzo-mezzo Prometheus), and she gives her character just the right blend of viciousness and vulnerability to make her arc feel believable. X-Men‘s Nicholas Hoult also makes a memorable appearance as Nux, one of Immortan Joe’s foot-soldiers. And speaking of ol’ Joe, he’s a suitably menacing presence throughout, but thanks to his elaborate makeup and facial appliance, few will realize that he’s played by the same man who memorably portrayed Max’s very first baddie, the Toecutter, in the 1979 original.

Most importantly, we really have to talk about Tom Hardy and how perfect he is for this part. In the five years since he was first announced as the lead, Hardy’s profile has only risen, and I’m gratified that my initial enthusiasm for his selection has been completely borne out. Bear in mind, Miller had ostensibly bid adieu to this series back in ’85. Of course, rumors of a new installment never went away even as time passed. And when Miller finally felt moved to make Fury Road with Gibson in the early aughts, outside events intervened, with the outbreak of the Iraq war stymying plans to shoot in Morocco, delaying production, and ultimately leading Gibson to decide against reprising the role.

I remember following these developments in real time as they unfolded with a sense of increasing frustration that Max Rockatansky’s road back to the screen was becoming so fraught that it may never happen at all. But having experienced the version of Fury Road that we got, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for the daisy chain of interlocking Murphy’s Law scenarios that led us to this moment. While the thought of Gibson not playing Max was unthinkable once, untethering actor and character was the only option if the franchise was going to live again. And I can’t think of a better choice than Hardy to carry it forward. Mad Max is back! Was he ever gone? A

Mad Max: Fury Road Rekindles Sensational Cinema, Yet Makes Me Long for Tank Girl

As with most movie franchises currently being exhumed and slapped back into service, I grew up with the original Mad Max movies. My dad took me to see The Road Warrior (called Mad Max 2 in civilized countries) — which seemed particularly abstract, bizarre, and antipodean following our relatively straightforward excursions to Star Wars, Superman, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. (As a child I reviewed The Road Warrior in a notebook, puzzling hard over the logic of desert-dwelling punk rockers with no fuel — who nonetheless relentlessly drive around in search of fuel.) Then came 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, with its Tina Turner hit “We Don’t Need Another Hero” — when it was blatantly obvious that “another hero” was precisely what the film’s characters needed. Wait — what?

So here we are, thirty years later (!), and I’ve viewed George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, and I’m thinking that what these movies are really about is simply creating a user-stimulating sensation, a triumph of form over function (unless the function is letting disenfranchised audience members feel crazy-manic-empowered for a couple of hours plus afterglow). The plot’s a wisp, the characters hazy (though they do talk a lot more than the director has suggested in interviews) — but then there’s that mega-gonzo action, action, ACTION!


Mad Max: The Legacy

(Courtesy of Warner Bros.)

Significantly, prior to Mad Max: Fury Road, I sat through 20 minutes of trailers (odd term, as they don’t “trail” anything anymore, plus it says “the following preview” right there on the screen) concerning either bludgeoning, apocalyptic stuff or the Vacation franchise terrifyingly morphing into the Hangover franchise. Shaking off that wearying blur, I dove straight into Max’s good ol’ “world of fire and blood” — and honestly my experience proved to be a clinical study: of iconography, of zeitgeist, of nostalgia, and especially of production design and this movie’s so-called (and by some dreaded) feminism.

Let’s address that claim: This movie features a corpulent chauvinist tyrant mysteriously named after a post-apocalyptic coffee drink: “Immortan Joe” (Hugh Keays-Byrne, the original Mad Max‘s totally mean “Toecutter”), and his bad boy is the root of all evil in Fury Road‘s rudimentary but utterly inoffensive Feminism 101 course. The gist? Ol’ Joe couldn’t be more of a pig, lording his natural spring water over his many wizened minions, while imprisoning lactating women on his milk farm (yes, really), plus of course keeping a harem of pretty young “breeder” wives. (As with Miller’s wonderful Happy Feet, Fury Road will impart basic biology to the youngsters, albeit harrowingly.) Joe is the kind of villain who’s so thick he needs to be told outright that people aren’t supposed to own other people — and judging by the fanged chastity belts his “wives” kick off during their diaphanous desert fashion shoot later on, Joe hasn’t much grasp on the whole fair-play concept of reality.

And that’s about it, really. Tough guys — if any of you are still bitching — this Mad Max movie is very, very, very macho. It’s mostly dumb-ass dudes ramming into other dumb-ass dudes, just like pro sports.

The only other aspect of lightweight feminism presented here is that the eponymous hero (Tom Hardy, unhindered by charisma) — who proves outrageously passive and even loses his phallic muscle car in the first minute or two — eventually kind of helps “Imperator Furiosa” (yet another badass cinematic kick-ass chick) save the aforementioned fashion models — mostly. In the movie’s only passage that slows down enough to tell a story, their rag-tag gaggle encounters a tiny matriarchal outpost in the desert, where senior women briefly discuss horticulture and stuff. Then the fugitives literally turn back toward their point of origin and do the same road-warrioring trek over again. Very macho. There is no pastel in this wasteland, save the day-for-night blue of the movie’s most brilliantly color-timed sequence. Repeat: This is not a “girl” movie; this is a girls-acting-like-guys movie — and even then, just a bit (for even Furiosa needs to be saved by a man).

That key performance comes from Charlize Theron, of course — she who has been throwing around the kick-ass-chick thing about as long and monotonously as Angelina Jolie — and here her Furiosa betrays very little emotion and scant backstory (saving that for her own sequel, perhaps). Watching her, mainly I wondered why her forehead mascara proves so inconsistent from shot to shot (just look: it’s always different). She protects the other women, which is great. But just like Max, there isn’t much more to say about her.

My takeaway? Incomparably hot action. Nice theme about liberating the oppressed. This movie’s “war boys” chanting “WAR BOYS!” in a manner suspiciously reminiscent of Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys” (though they actually resemble extras from creepy old Peter Gabriel videos). The villain is a patriarchal baddie who cannot function without a grotesque breathing apparatus (hmmm). Oh, and I’m pretty sure I briefly glimpsed a “landstrider.” Y’know, mainly I liked it. There’s a cinematic tradition being rekindled here — not just the Mad Max franchise, but going back at least as far as Steven Spielberg’s Duel, with its killer truck — a truck soon echoed of course in Spielberg’s Raiders, in Miller’s own The Road Warrior, and even in Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. Following the miserable ’90s and too many joyless, humorless superhero movies, happily Mad Max: Fury Road gets the vocabulary of sensational cinema, and knows how to lay it out and blow it up. There’s a terrific comic-book sensibility to this film, which is high praise for the work of a seventy-year-old man. In contrast to that other George, I feel like this movie — with its blood, sweat and gears (and Tusken Raider Hell’s Angels) — is the proper spiritual sequel to the original Star Wars.


Tank Girl: You make post-apocalyptic torment fun!

Still, in the midst of those miserable ’90s emerged an anomaly, unjustly dismissed and largely forgotten — a dirty desert ride featuring an absolutely female protagonist, with wit and verve to burn. A movie worth buying, viewing, and contrasting to Fury Road. I’m speaking of course of Tank Girl by Rachel Talalay (lately directing Doctor Who) — one of my favorite films ever, and one strongly deserving mention here because, twenty years ago, Lori Petty’s titular Tank Girl already took Charlize Theron’s Furiosa to task, setting the standard for post-apocalyptic punk ladies, showing us how it’s done. It’s tough, the world has collapsed, there’s murder, there’s mayhem, and Malcolm McDowell’s utilities-obsessed villain even ups the water-tyrant ante by literally drinking people he doesn’t like. Interracial, kangaroo mutants, you name it — but there’s a key difference between Tank Girl and Fury Road, and it ain’t swapping budget Tucson for epic Namibia. It’s that Tank Girl herself — basically Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones, and Mad Max rolled up together in pigtails and attitude — isn’t merely portraying the male’s wounded and beleaguered anima (look it up); rather, she’s got the good womanly sense to stare the apocalypse straight in the eye and turn it into a big, inclusive party! Perhaps we as an audience — and as a populace — aren’t ready for that free, fun, feisty female yet. But I hope we get there most hastily.

Valentino, Patti Smith, and More Celebrate New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala and Mel Gibson, Charlize Theron, and Other Stars Come Out for the Mad Max: Fury Road Premiere

Valentino Garavani and Olivia Palermo

It has been a multicultural week on the gala circuit: Monday at the Met, all eyes were on China’s enduring influence on fashion; last night at New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala, the spotlight was on Denmark, birthplace of the great nineteenth-century choreographer, August Bournonville. Known for his effervescent footwork and repertory rich in pantomime, Bournonville might seem a world away from the modernist compositions by George Balanchine, the visionary founder of NYCB. In the spirit of spring renewal, the evening’s anticipated premiere was a revival of the Dane’s 1836 story ballet, La Sylphide, and a crowd including Valentino Garavani, Elettra Wiedemann, Patti Smith, and Ansel Elgort arrived to take it all in.

“I have a soft spot for Romantic ballets,” confessed Indre Rockefeller in daffodil yellow Delpozo, looking every bit the former dancer she is. Justin Peck, the company’s wunderkind resident choreographer and a soloist, paused to underscore the importance of the classics. “I actually haven’t seen any of the rehearsals for the piece, so I’m excited to just sit back and be a spectator,” he said. Wiedemann glided by in blush pink Lanvin, and on her feet? “Lanvin—not pointe shoes, thankfully,” she said with a laugh, showing off a sparkly sandal with a sensible heel. Growing up, her mother, Isabella Rossellini, used to take her to the ballet every year; Olivia Palermo, who seemingly walked out of Botticelli’s Primavera in a botanical Valentino dress, also has a balletomane in the family. “My mother just came last night! She has season tickets.”

Moments later inside the David H. Koch Theater, the curtain rose to reveal the first piece on the program, Bournonville Divertissements, a tasting menu of buoyant, jump-heavy excerpts by the choreographer. After a brief intermission on the terrace with champagne and a waning sunset, it was time for La Sylphide, staged by the company’s Danish-born ballet master in chief, Peter Martins. Set in Scotland, the story centers on a tartan-clad cad (a triumphant Joaquin De Luz) who jilts his betrothed for a winged sylph (Sterling Hyltin); she arrives by window and departs (to chuckles from the audience) by chimney. Their love affair ends in tragedy when he wraps a scarf—secretly cursed by a witch—around his paramour, causing her to perish, her delicate wings fluttering to the ground.

Heavy stuff for a spring night, but the mood was light at the post-show dinner on the promenade. The ethereal Wendy Whelan, who retired last fall from the company and appears at the Joyce Theater later this month, gushed about Hyltin’s performance, adding, “It’s my birthday—48!” Andrew Rannells, in the midst of filming the fifth season of Girls, chatted with Tiler Peck, a City Ballet principal whose husband, Robert Fairchild, stars in Broadway’s An American in Paris. “He plays the role that Gene Kelly did in the film,” Garavani explained. “I’m going to see it next week!” And with that, like a corps of winged sylphs, the guests dispersed into the night.

Meanwhile, on the West Coast, a very rainy Hollywood evening set the stage for the premiere of Mad Max: Fury Road. As action-packed as the movie was, it didn’t outshine the equally exciting red carpet. Hollywood veteran and star Charlize Theron shed her movie look and opted for a clean black and white dress, while newcomer costar Zoë Kravitz looked elegant in a Valentino gown, paired well with her signature braids. The biggest surprise of the night was when original Mad Max star, Mel Gibson, came out to show his support for the newest chapter of the legacy. As guests filed into the theater, Riley Keough in a leather dress, stopped for a few selfies with fans, then joined Abbey Lee, in a Balmain jumpsuit, inside.

As the credits rolled, the night was just beginning. Guests ventured across the street for the after-party, where in one corner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stunned in a sparkling Rodarte skirt and top. Across the room, costar Nicholas Hoult was seen laughing and talking amongst friends. Mad Max’s star-studded cast definitely failed to disappoint, both on the screen and on the carpet.
