Emmy Weekend: Saturday Brunch With ICM Partners, Tea With BAFTA

16 September 2017 5:16 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Saturday is a leisurely day of Emmy weekend activities this time around.

NBCUniversal and Showtime are taking a year off from hosting large-scale parties. That clears the path for the Evening Before fundraiser in Century City benefitting the Motion Picture and Television Fund, which is always the weekend’s glitziest draw.

After a jam-packed Friday schedule, Emmy revelers got to sleep in a bit. Brunch was provided by ICM Partners, and there was tea in the afternoon courtesy of BAFTA Los Angeles.

ICM Partners

By noon, the backyard of the Santa Monica home of ICM honcho Chris Silbermann and producer Julia Franz was overflowing with good food and good conversation. The casual setting of the brunch was, as ever, a nice respite for the ears and throat from louder evening affairs.

Among those enjoying the spread and the sunshine were “Better Call Saul’s” Vince Gilligan and Thomas Schnauz, ABC’s Channing Dungey, Patrick Moran »

From VHS to VOD #3

4 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

Volcano is Fearless Finney Showcase: L.A. Screening with Bisset in Attendance

21 July 2017 4:01 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Under the Volcano' screening: John Huston's 'quality' comeback featuring daring Albert Finney tour de force As part of its John Huston film series, the UCLA Film & Television Archive will be presenting the 1984 drama Under the Volcano, starring Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, and Anthony Andrews, on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Billy Wilder Theater in the Los Angeles suburb of Westwood. Jacqueline Bisset is expected to be in attendance. Huston was 77, and suffering from emphysema for several years, when he returned to Mexico – the setting of both The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Night of the Iguana – to direct 28-year-old newcomer Guy Gallo's adaptation of English poet and novelist Malcolm Lowry's 1947 semi-autobiographical novel Under the Volcano, which until then had reportedly defied the screenwriting abilities of numerous professionals.

Trailer for World Trade Center Drama '9/11' Directed by Martin Guigui

21 July 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I need you to try to get the hell out of that elevator." Atlas Distribution has premiered a trailer for a new drama titled 9/11, telling the story of five people trapped inside an elevator in the World Trade Center's North Tower on 9/11. They work together, never giving up hope, to try and find a way out safely. It's only been 16 years, but I guess we've reached a point where movies can literally use the 9/11 date as their title when telling a story centered around this horrific moment. The ensemble cast of this film includes Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman, Gina Gershon, Wood Harris, Jacqueline Bisset, Olga Fonda and Bruce Davison. It's directed by Martin Guigui, the same guy who made the unofficial Raging Bull sequel The Bronx Bull. The final shot in this trailer is totally crazy, and potentially a spoiler? Watch out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster »

A24 and DirecTV have bought domestic distribution rights to the political thriller “Backstabbing for Beginners,” starring Theo James, Ben Kingsley, and Jacqueline Bisset.

Danish director Per Fly shot the film last year in Marrakech, Morocco.

Bisset portrays a French Ngo activist overseeing food aid. Kingsley plays a seasoned diplomat and James’ character’s boss.

Fly co-wrote “Backstabbing” with Daniel Pyne (“The Manchurian Candidate”), inspired by Michael Soussan’s memoir “Backstabbing for Beginners: My Crash Course in International Diplomacy.”

All aboard! Stunning first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded Murder on the Orient Express

1 June 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

20th Century Fox have today debuted the first look at director Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded remake of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, which you can view below!

A new version of the classic story, Branagh directs the film as well as taking the film’s lead, as the legendary sleuth Hercule Poirot. On board the famous train, Poirot must solve a murder onboard with everyone a suspect and the detective sifts through 13 strangers to find the killer. The film is produced by Ridley Scott (Alien: Covenant) and Simon Kinberg (The Martian) and written by Alien: Covenant scribe Michael Green.

With a release date set for November time across the globe, it’s fair to say that the studio will be pushing the film into contention for the awards season its release precedes and judging from the first trailer, that may well be the case. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘L’amant double’

26 May 2017 6:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It practically goes without saying that the French have different standards when it comes to kink. For example, when “50 Shades of Grey” opened overseas, the French barely raised an eyebrow, giving the tawdry sado-maso potboiler a light “forbidden to children under 12” rating, which meant that even young teens could see it.

Superior in nearly every regard — not least of all its pulse-racing perversions — director François Ozon’s “L’amant double” may as well be France’s answer to the “Cinquante nuances de Grey” phenomenon. And though nuance itself may be in short supply, Ozon has made a deliciously twisted erotic thriller in which a sexy young mental case (Marine Vacth, whom Ozon discovered with “Young & Beautiful”) gets mixed up with a pair of twin psychotherapists (both played by Jérémie Renier). One wants to marry her, while the other relies on more unconventional methods, forcing his damaged-goods patient to confront her »

Cannes 2017: L’Amant Double Review

26 May 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jo-Ann Titmarsh

François Ozon has an eclectic and varied filmography as a director, veering from the gentle fun of Potiche to the more sinister In the House. L’Amant Double definitely falls into the latter category, but that doesn’t mean there is no fun to be had.

The film opens with an eye-popping scene that we rarely see on the big screen (unless you go to a lot of obs and gynae conferences). And as this film is concerned with a woman’s sexuality, initially under wraps and then unleashed, I suppose it’s fair to take a literal peak at her hidden sex. The woman in question is Chloé (Marine Vacth, who also starred in Ozon’s Young & Beautiful). She’s got stomach cramps and can’t find any physical reason for it. Her gynaecologist suggests therapy and off Chloé goes to the office of Paul Meyer »

Cannes 2017 Deals: The Complete List of Festival Purchases

24 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For domestic buyers looking to snag a hot title, the Cannes Film Festival isn’t exactly the most hospitable environment — all told and including festival sidebars like Critics’ Week and Director’s Fortnight, there are more than 75 films at this year’s festival, and while the fest offers up plenty in the way of foreign-language titles, most of the heavy-hitting English-language features landed on the Croissette with distribution deals already in place.

Netflix arrived with both Noah Baumbach’s family drama “The Meyerowitz Stories” and Bong Joon Ho’s “Okja,” while Amazon has Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck” and Focus Features has Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled.” And while A24 has never bought a completed film at Cannes, the company launched four titles at the fest, including Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” and the Safdie brothers’ “Good Time. »

'L'Amant double': Film Review | Cannes 2017

24 May 2017 6:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

After a foray into relatively restrained period filmmaking in the recent, World War I-set Frantz, Francois Ozon is back to his old tricks — and really, who's complaining? Premiering in competition at Cannes, the French auteur's L'amant double certainly won't win any prizes for taste, coherence or originality. But it's got style, sex appeal and a delicious streak of batshit crazy that this year's sleepy main slate sorely needed — think endoscopic vaginal shots, "twincest" fantasies, voyeuristic cats both live and stuffed, a creepy, perennially cake-bearing neighbor and Jacqueline Bisset in a dual role. (And I didn't even mention the »

Cannes Q&A: Francois Ozon Talks Competition Sexual Thriller ‘Amant Double’ (Exclusive)

22 May 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of France’s most prolific and renowned directors, Francois Ozon talked to Variety about his provocative erotic mystery “Amant Double,” which will premiere in competition at Cannes on Friday. Sold by Paris-based Films Distribution, “Amant Double” has been picked up by Cohen Media Group for North America and has been sold to all major territories. Ozon’s previous film, “Frantz,” a black-and-white period film, won big at this year’s Cesars, France’s equivalent of the Oscars. “Amant Double” stars Marine Vacth, the breakthrough star of “Young & Beautiful” (which competed at Cannes in 2013) as Chloé, a fragile young woman who falls in love with her psychoanalyst, Paul (Jeremie Renier). She eventually moves in with Paul but soon discovers he is concealing a part of his identity.

What is the genesis of “Amant Double”?

My inspiration for this film came from a novel by American author Joyce Carol Oates called “Lives of the Twins, »
