Sky profits break $2bn

28 July 2016 5:01 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The pay-tv broadcaster saw profits surge 12% over the last year.

Sky has posted strong full-year financial results with revenue and profit both up as the pay-tv operator starts to take advantage of bringing together its European services.

The company also brushed off concerns surrounding Brexit as it revealed plans to move aggressively into virtual reality.

Group revenue was up 7% to $15.8bn (£12bn) in the twelve months to end of June 2016, up from $14.7bn (£11.2bn) last year, while operating profit rose 12% from $1.8bn (£1.4bn) to $2.05bn (£1.56bn).

UK revenue passed $10.5bn (£8bn) for first time, up 7% from $10.3bn (£7.82bn) to $11bn (£8.37bn).

This was helped by Sky adding 445,000 new UK subscribers, more than half of its total additions of 808,000. However Sky no longer breaks out its television subscriber numbers.

The firm also unveiled plans to launch a virtual reality app and to produce 12 short films from its in-house Vr studios to complement initial experiments in Formula 1, football and boxing »

Venice Film Festival Lineup Includes Mel Gibson, Tom Ford, Terrence Malick Movies

28 July 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival’s 73rd edition will feature a batch of star-studded English-language dramas directed by Mel Gibson, Tom Ford, Pablo Larrain, Antoine Fuqua and Damian Chazelle, as well as promising new titles by big-name international auteurs such as Emir Kusturica, Francois Ozon, and Wim Wenders, plus plenty of potential discoveries.

This year’s selections look likely to reinforce the Lido’s status as a discerning and effective awards-season platform. Last year, the festival launched “Spotlight,” and, before that, “Birdman” and “Gravity” — all of which went on to win multiple Oscars.

The Gibson-directed “Hacksaw Ridge” stars Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, an army medic who never carried a gun during World War II. Doss was the first conscientious objector in U.S. history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. The topical drama, which is screening out-of-competition, is slated for a Nov. 4 U.S. release via Lionsgate. »

Mediapro, Oficina Burman Strike High-End Drama Development Alliance (Exclusive)

27 July 2016 5:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Aligning two of the most ambitious TV drama producers in the Spanish-speaking world, Spain’s Mediapro Group and Argentina’s Oficina Burman have struck a strategic co-development deal for high-end fiction TV series and formats aimed squarely at international markets.

Under the deal, Mediapro, a producer with Sky, HBO and Canal Plus of Jude Law starrer “The Young Pope,” and Oficina Burman, which is set to produce Netflix’s first original series in Argentina, will join forces to co-develop a minimum of three TV series in a first year of collaboration, said Javier Mendez, Mediapro head of contents.

Mediapro will cover co-development costs with the right to produce series that come out of the co-development deal, he added. Mendez is scheduled to travel to Buenos Aires, where Oficina Burman is based, on Wednesday to advance on the first potential co-development slate.

The deal coincides with the inauguration of Mediapro’s new offices in Argentina. »

Charlie Hunnam Not Returning to ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequel, Because of ‘Politics’ vs. ‘Art’

26 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 film “Pacific Rim” follows washed-up soldier Raleigh Becket, played by Charlie Hunnam, who is pulled out of retirement to team up with a young rookie for one last-ditch attempt to defeat the Kaiju, colossal alien monsters from an interdimensional realm that are at war with Earth. Though a sequel to the commercially and critically successful monster film is in the works, Hunnam will not be returning to the series. In an interview with Yahoo at Comic-Con, Hunnam explained that he was involved in a very early version of the sequel, but couldn’t swing it because of a scheduling conflict and cited the “non-creative” decisions that allow certain choices to be made.

“They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of the, you know, politics and business surrounding filmmaking,” says Hunnam. »

Comic Con: Kong, Arthur trailers unleashed

24 July 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It has been a busy weekend for new movie trailers and we’re going to attempt to bring all of them to you over the next couple of hours. Let’s kick things off with a couple of trailers from the Warner Brothers panel from over the weekend, and in particular the trailers for Kong: Skull Island and Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword. Both films are set to hit cinemas next March.

First up, Kong: Skull Island.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts.  In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

Kong: Skull Island” stars Tom Hiddleston, »

First Full Trailer for Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword'

23 July 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's an army of you, there's only one of me." Warner Bros has also debuted the trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword at Comic-Con and online, for those waiting to get a glimpse at the latest version of this story. In this upcoming action movie, Charlie Hunnam stars as King Arthur with a cast including Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Tom Wu, and Aidan Gillen. This looks unlike any other big screen version of the King Arthur story we've seen before, with Guy Ritchie's signature style and intimate cinematography. There's also some very odd fantastical elements in the final half, let's just hope this actually turns out okay. Take a look. Here's the first Comic-Con trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, from YouTube: When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, »

Eddie Redmayne charms Comic-Con

23 July 2016 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Another British actor earned his place in convention lore on Saturday as the Oscar-winner and star of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them handed out wands to everybody in Hall H.

The decision by the Warner Bros hierarchy to have Redmayne walk among the people – many of whom were screaming in glee – was a masterstroke finale that lifted what had otherwise been a typically loud presentation, albeit one inflected with more nuance and humour than this studio’s Comic-Con appearances are known for.

An otherwise satisfying session for executives had dipped into awkwardness earlier in the session when Suicide Squad director David Ayer acknowledged that someone would probably live-stream the trailer he was about to introduce – hitting on one of reasons why Hollywood has broadly stayed away this year.

New Trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur Re-invents the Legend

23 July 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Warner Bros. has owned Sdcc 2016 with their amazing trailer game!  The new trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword was just one more feather in their cap!  Check it out!

Guy Ritchie has taken the mysticism to a whole new level in the trailer for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  It's almost got a Dark Souls feel to it, in a good way.  What is interesting is that, it kind of looks like Arthur (Charlie Hunnam), inadvertantly, unlocks a barrage of magical creatures by pulling out Excalibur.  

It's definitely a different take on the lore of King Arthur.  Let's learn more with the official synopsis!

When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. »

Charlie Hunnam Stars In The Action-Packed First Trailer For King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

23 July 2016 3:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding success with the Sherlock Holmes movies, the disappointing box office performance of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. must have come as a surprise to both Warner Bros. and Guy Ritchie. However, the filmmaker is now looking to launch a very different sort of franchise with King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.

The first trailer was revealed at Comic-Con earlier today, and it definitely looks like Ritchie will be bringing his trademark style to the movie, which has been envisioned as being the first chapter in a series which could run for as many as six instalments as it delves into the classic story like never before.

In King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, when the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern, Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. »

Coming Distractions: A legend gets the Guy Ritchie treatment in the King Arthur trailer

23 July 2016 1:51 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Snatch and Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels director Guy Ritchie has recently applied his signature frenetic style to two Sherlock Holmes adaptations and a revival of a ’60s spy show. Now he’s given the most legendary British king that same kinetic treatment, as star Charlie Hunnam showed off a trailer for the upcoming King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword at Comic-Con today.

Things start off with that old Ritchie flair, with Hunnam’s Arthur looking like a street-smart tough with a penchant for bare-knuckle boxing and giving lip to Game Of ThronesCharles Dance. But things get more traditional—and more explosive—in the trailer’s second half, after Arthur pulls Excalibur from its stone. It’s almost a shame; as much fun as it is to watch Sherlock HolmesJude Law prowl around as an evil-looking king, there’s something weirdly engaging about the idea of a »
