|Watch: First Trailer For Jim Mickle’s Noir ‘Cold In July’ Starring Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard & Don Johnson|

They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. Well, more accurately, they don’t make ‘em like this anymore, but Jim Mickle still does. The director behind “Stake Land” and “We Are What We Are” returns with another genre exercise with “Cold In July,” and the first trailer has arrived.
Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson (having a blast) star in this one about an ordinary Texas man who kills an intruder who breaks into his home one night. The event sets off a chain reaction when the victim’s father, a grizzled ex-con, comes looking for who killed his boy, and slowly, the everyman is pulled into a mystery that has dark consequences.
The film is set in the ’80s, but also feels like a product of the era too, with the twist, noir-tinged tale deserving a beat-up VHS cover and a big bowl of popcorn to go with it. Fans of this kind of stuff will dig it. And our review from Sundance calls it “unusually absorbing and memorable.”
“Cold In July” opens in limited release and on VOD on May 23rd. Watch below.
We also added over 500 screencaptures from the trailer. Make sure to view them below:

|Michael C. Hall: “I’m often sent scripts that have some murderous or graveyard elements”|
|Posted by Tania on 16 / Apr | tags: Cold in July | No Comments|
In the opening scenes of the new ’80s-set thriller Cold in July, Michael C. Hall’s character shoots dead a burglar and then checks out his funeral. Did the man who played the serial killer Dexter and a funeral director on Six Feet Under think he was being pranked when he first read the screenplay? Not so much. As Hall says in the currently-on-stands Summer Movie Preview issue of Entertainment Weekly, “I’m often sent scripts that have some murderous or graveyard elements.”
Truth be told, this latest movie from the filmmaking duo of director-writer Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) and actor-writer Nick Damici is very different from both of Hall’s TV shows. The actor stars as a frame store-owning everyman who finds himself in conflict with the dead perp’s father, played by Sam Shepard. Don Johnson, meanwhile, portrays a private eye-pig farmer (yes, you read that right), although the most memorable aspect to this adaptation of the 1989 Joe Lansdale novel is its many dramatic and tonal twists. Mickle says it was that which first attracted him to the book when he first read it while working on his debut movie, 2006′s horror film Mulberry Street. “It just smacked me in the face,” he recalls. “At that time, every script, every book, everything that I was reading was — and still is — just there to be one thing. You know, it’s going to be the evil kid movie or the teenagers-go-to-the-lake. Every script, no matter how good it was, always felt like it was declaring what it was in the first five pages and just spending the next 85 or 115 fulfilling its own promise without ever really trying to do anything else. I was so struck by this story that seemed to do that but then would jerk into something else — and then into something else.”
Cold in July is opening in select theaters May 23 and will also be available to watch on VOD on the same day.
|Michael C. Hall About Filming “Years Of Living Dangerously”: “I Jumped At The Chance To Reboot My Own System”|
|Posted by Tania on 15 / Apr | tags: Documentary, Interview, Michael C. Hall, Years of Living Dangerously | No Comments|
When ”Dexter” ended, Michael C. Hall wanted a new challenge … and found one that took him not only far away from that series, but also from home. The actor went to Bangladesh as one of the celebrity “correspondents” for “Years of Living Dangerously”, a Showtime documentary miniseries offering on-location explorations of the impact of climate change around the world.
Hall’s social concerns are demonstrated by his ties to such organizations as the Somalia Aid Society’s Feed the People initiative and the Waterkeeper Alliance. He tells Zap2it his “Years of Living Dangerously” involvement “started with Showtime contacting me about the project and letting me know a couple of slots that were available for correspondents. One of the two was Bangladesh, and I saw that it coincided with the [end of the] work on ‘Dexter’.
“I think there’s a growing collective awareness surrounding this issue,” Hall tells Zap2it, “but I also jumped at the chance to kind of reboot my own system when the series ended. A trip halfway around the world seemed like just the thing, and it was a different way of telling a story, not with any fictionalized characters or a script. I was compelled by that, and the fact that I would be surrounded by people who had a great deal of experience doing that kind of thing.”
The bottom line for Hall was that he felt “excited and honored to take part in something I thought was probably long overdue, creating something that people would pay attention to and maybe give a greater appreciation of how immediate an issue this is.”
Though he had vacationed in Southeast Asia, Hall never had visited Bangladesh before. “We flew over there, I took a short nap, then we started our first day of shooting. It was definitely a matter of jumping right into the deep end, but I was always briefed about what was coming next. I enjoyed it; it was about being open to wherever a conversation might lead you, but with a certain plan in terms of what you wanted to encourage people to talk about. I think it’s something I would even consider doing again.”
Given the subject of “Years of Living Dangerously,” Hall adds he felt a true “sense of responsibility” while doing his part. “I’ve taken the experience with me, for sure,” he reflects of the 10 days he spent in Bangladesh. “I think that as much as anything, I was just so inspired by the spirit of the people there. It’s a very dire situation, but what I took away was their resilience as much as any kind of straight catastrophic thinking. I was aware, intellectually, that I would be going to a place that had very few of the creature comforts that I take for granted,” Hall says. “The first time I stepped back into my house or turned on my shower, I was really aware of what a world away that all is. The preoccupations of people in the context in which I live [are] about things that don’t even necessarily exist for the people of Bangladesh. As much as I enjoyed getting back into my bed, I missed the unveiled openness I experienced from so many of the people there.”
Being part of a cast — in the broad sense of the word — that has dedicated the time and effort to “Years of Living Dangerously” also gives Hall a sense of pride in his industry: “I can imagine people who have the means and the might to make something like this happen talking about how they should, but the fact that they saw it through is something else entirely. It’s very encouraging.”
While he’s enjoying his new horizons as an actor, Hall is personally satisfied to be among those who have lent their skills to “Years of Living Dangerously,” which a just-released United Nations report on climate change has made even more timely. “This certainly helps me appreciate more, and hopefully will help anybody else who watches it appreciate more, that climate change is very much a human issue,” he reasons. “It’s not just about lifestyle changes but about life and death.”

|New gallery features added|
|Posted by Tania on 13 / Apr | tags: Photo, Updates, Website | No Comments|
Hi everyone! I have added new features to our gallery. I noticed that many of you don’t save the hi-res original images, and instead save medium-sized photos. I think it’s because pop-up window is not always the easiest way to view and save photos. But because I put a lot of time and strength to provide you guys with the best quality images of Michael I decided to install new features to the gallery to make your lives easier.
First off all, now you can check the photos original size and resolution before even opening them. All the information is now written under photos thumbnails. Second, I have installed a feature that enables you to download entire albums in Hi-Res format. All you need to do is just click on a “zip” button which appears in each album. I have circled the area where it now appears for you to not be confused:
At last, you now have a download button under each of the medium-sized previews to save photos without loading them in pop-up windows. And you can also now share any selected image on twitter and facebook accounts by only clicking a few buttons. The screenshot below explains everything:
