Venice 2016: 10 things to look out for on the Lido

24 August 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen reveals the burning questions ahead of this year’s festival…

Anticipation for the 73rd Venice Film Festival (Aug 31 - Sept10) has been building for weeks.

Now, ahead of the world’s oldest film showcase (and the autumn’s first major awards barometer), Screen highlights ten burning questions…

1. Awards race under orders…

This year’s awards race will get underway in earnest on the Lido. In the last three years the festival has kickstarted major Oscar runs for three movies: Gravity, Birdman and Spotlight, while last year’s crop also included popular awards titles The Danish Girl and Anomalisa.

This year’s line-up is starrier than ever with Venice’s competition alone featuring Damien Chazelle’s La La Land (more of which below), Tom Ford’s blue ribbon drama Nocturnal Animals, Jacqueline Kennedy biopic Jackie, starring Natalie Portman, Denis Villeneuve’s big-budget sci-fi Arrival and Michael Fassbender-Alicia Vikander romance The Light Between Oceans.

Charlie Hunnam’s Title Swordsman Will Be “Rough Around The Edges” In King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

22 August 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

King Arthur, the legendary British leader who reigned during the early 6th century, is a character so enduring and timeless that he’s been adapted for screen, theater and literature countless times over.

That means Arthur needs no introduction, but it also means that, for those creators out to engineer a fresh spin on the Excalibur-wielding hero, are left facing a difficult task. Trust Guy Ritchie, then, to have us cautiously optimistic ahead of the release of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Placing Sons of Anarchy alum Charlie Hunnam in the lead role, Warner Bros.’ lavish reboot has been penciled in for release next March, and while speaking with Empire, the actor promised to introduce an Arthur who is “contemporary, selfish, [and] somewhat rough around the edges.”

Famed for his rat-a-tat editing and slick sense of cinematic style, Ritchie has proven his knack for modernizing legends in the past (read: »

Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly To Reunite For Holmes & Watson

17 August 2016 3:59 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Benedict Cumberbatch playing the super sleuth for the BBC, the character getting an American makeover with Elementary, and Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law apparently getting ready for a third installment of the feature film franchise, you might think we’re all a bit Sherlock Holmes-ed out at this stage. Well, Sony Pictures don’t seem to think so, tapping Tropic Thunder screenwriter and Get Hard director Etan Cohen to take the reins of Holmes & Watson, a comedic take on the super sleuth and his loyal side kick. What will make you stand up and take notice though is that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have signed on the dotted line to take the lead roles of Sherlock Holmes and James Watson respectively, marking the third feature collaboration between the pair following Talladega Nights and, of course, Step Brothers (I’m not counting Reilly’s cameo in »

Hey parents, kids are always watching what you say, do and wear. For Iris Law, growing up with parents Jude Law and Sadie Frost was filled with glamorous moments and red carpet looks.

In the September issue of Teen Vogue, available on newsstands now, the 15-year-old earns a fashionable shoot. Along the way, she shares just how much her parents influenced her fashionable mind.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Reunite for Holmes and Watson

16 August 2016 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are some great comedic duos in the modern age of cinema, but there are few that rival the love and success that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have managed to obtain. The pair have been wanting to team up again for quite some time, and they finally are. It isn't for a Step Brothers sequel though, as one might expect. Ferrell and Reilly will be taking on the classic duo of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson with the new movie Holmes & Watson.

The news comes courtesy of Deadline and reveals that the new movie is happening over at Sony Pictures. Holmes & Watson is said to be taking on the characters made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but will be putting a PG-13 comedic spin on it. Ferrell will be re-teaming with another recent collaborator, as the report also notes that Etan Cohen will be directing the movie, »

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly to sleuth out ‘Holmes & Watson’

16 August 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Reunited and it feels so good. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are getting back together, this time to star in Holmes & Watson, a comic version of Sherlock and his trusted sidekick. Deadline is reporting that the movie will be directed by Etan Cohen, who previously directed Ferrell in the 2015 movie Get Hard. Cohen also wrote Get Hard as well as blockbuster comedies Tropic Thunder and Men In Black 3. Ferrell and Reilly have joined forces previously, in the 2008 flick Step Brothers and in 2006’s Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby. Both movies were hits with Step Brothers grossing an unadjusted $128 million globally while Talladega Nights brought in $162 million worldwide. The two were in talks to work with Adam McKay on a border patrol comedy, but this project still seems to be in development. This is not the only Sherlock Holmes movie being discussed these days.   In a May interview, »

6 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows on HBO Now in August 2016: ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Aviator,’ and More

31 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New Original Programming:

“Meet the Donors” (8/1)

“Dios, Inc.” - Season 1 Finale (8/5)

“Hitchcock/Truffaut” (8/8)

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the La Rams” (8/10)

“El Negocio” -  Season 3 Premiere (8/12)

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

The King is dead — or, rather, taking a year off. HBO programming president Casey Bloys officially confirmed on Saturday that Seasons 7 and 8 of “Game of Thrones” will be the show’s last, and that next year’s seven episodes won’t premiere in time to compete in the 2017 Emmys.

It’s news that has every other network breathing a sigh of relief, given the way the show has dominated the race in years past. However, as we previously explored, HBO does have some other options in the drama realm when it comes to the Emmys race next year.

The final eight-episode season of “The Leftovers” will be premiering in spring 2017, HBO confirmed. In fact, it’s moving into “Game of Thrones’s” newly vacated slot — a comparison invoked by Bloys himself.

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. »

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.

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.
