International Exec You Should Know: Stephane Celerier

12 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The past year has been a busy one for Stephane Celerier. Not only did his first co-production, Eric Lartigau’s “La Famille Belier,” lead France’s Mars Distribution to new box office heights, becoming the highest-grossing French film of 2015, with 7.5 million tickets sold (an approximate $50 million gross), but he was also tapped as VP of Studiocanal in September, when the Gallic giant bought a 30% share in the indie powerhouse.

Mars, which Celerier helped launch in 1998 as a distribution arm of Bac Films, was France’s top indie distributor in 2015, with such reasonably budgeted French crowd-pleasers as Julie Delpy’s “Lolo,” Rudi Rosenberg’s “The New Kid,” Jean-Jacques Annaud’s “Wolf Totem” and Melanie Laurent and Cyril Dion’s docu “Demain,” as well as projects from Woody Allen (“Irrational Man”) and Asif Kapadia (“Amy”). The company acquires projects at the script or concept stage.

Celerier proved his resilience after going through »

Hong Sang-soo, Leonardo DiCaprio, and More Developing New Projects

8 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Not exactly slowing his roll, Hong Sang-soo is already shooting the follow-up to last year’s Right Now, Wrong Then — one of the finest films we saw in 2015, and one likely to end up on a few best-of-2016 lists if it actually gets released — all the while reuniting with leads Jung Jae-young and Kim Min-hee. Information on his 18th feature remains essentially non-existent to outsiders, but such is my enthusiasm for his work, arguably the best streak in modern cinema, that even a brief notice seems worthwhile. [Korean Film and Keyframe)

Also vague is a report from The Wrap that Leonardo DiCaprio will reunite with Revenant scribe Mark L. Smith for Conquest — a project about which nothing else (save for the involvement of Paramount and producer John Davis) is known. But there you have it.

Here are two casting stories out of Berlin: first, THR tell us Brendan Gleeson, director Jonathan Teplitzky (The Railway Man »

We're still weeks away from the Oscars, but we keep adding to the #OscarsSoWhite frustrations with new and somewhat startling quotes from nominees, past winners, and other opinionated Hollywood players. In this edition of The Snap, I recap what nominees like Charlotte Rampling and Julie Delpy have said (and then apologized for) and what the takeaway from this whole discussion has been.  »

Wiener-Dog | 2016 Sundance Film Festival Review

4 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Every Dachshund Has His Day: Solondz Provides Droll Despair

It’s been five years since we were last graced with Todd Solondz’s particular brand of muted anguish and he returns rejuvenated with Wiener-Dog, a quartet of sequences fixated on its titular canine. A kinda-sorta follow-up to the director’s 1995 breakout Welcome to the Dollhouse since it refurbishes one of his most famous characters for a segment, we find the auteur simultaneously at his most pleasant and melancholy. The titular pooch ties together these loosely related moments meditating on life’s predilection for cruelty and utter disappointment, some more exacting (and memorable) than others. Fans of his previous titles will most assuredly appreciate the infectious sense of misanthropy occluding tiny tendrils of hope, the potent stain of regret marking all the human characters observed through the eyes of an affable Dachshund.

As with many films formed by intersecting narratives, it »

Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

Women’s Image Awards Honoree Abigail Disney: ‘It’s #OscarsSoWhite and #OscarsSoMale’ (Video)

3 February 2016 11:21 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Armor of Light” director Abigail Disney says it’s time for women to start asserting themselves in media. The filmmaker, One of the Women’s Image Awards’ Women of the Year, says women need to work together and promote each other in order to overcome the challenges facing women in the entertainment industry and in society as a whole. “It’s like the #OscarsSoWhite problem,” Disney said in an interview with TheWrap. “It’s endemic, it’s deep, and the responsibility for it ranges from the top to the bottom. Everyone has to take responsibility.” Also read: Julie Delpy Says »

[Sundance Review] Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny

27 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Premiering at Sundance 25 years after his seminal second feature film, Slacker, Richard Linklater: Dream is Destiny, produced for the PBS series American Masters, is the kind of documentary that requires little introduction. Borrowing its title from the opening moments of his Waking Life — a film that itself represented a rebirth for the Austin-based filmmaker following his second studio feature The Newton Boys — and combining behind-the-scenes footage from many of Linklater’s films (from Slacker to his upcoming Everybody Wants Some) with a history of Austin’s independent film scene, as developed by Linklater and the Austin Film Society, the picture reflectively weaves together a history of a master filmmaker whose work is squarely interested in the passage of time. The picture includes commentary by the late Siskel and Ebert, along with critic / scholar Kent Jones and, very briefly, Kevin Smith.

Directed by Louis Black (SXSW and Austin Chronicle founder) and Karen Bernstein, »

Happy 40th Birthday, ‘Laverne & Shirley’!

27 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

40 years ago today, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams schlemiel-schlamazeled their way into TV history when “Laverne & Shirley” premiered on ABC. Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney, two roommates who worked as bottle-cappers in Milwaukee, had made their debut on “Happy Days” the November before their own spin-off started airing on January 27, 1976. The zany antics of “Laverne & Shirley” quickly shot to No. 1 in the ratings, even surpassing the viewership of “Happy Days.” Williams departed the show after she became pregnant with her first child. As to why she left instead of scheduling around the birth of her baby, Williams has said, “When it came time for me to sign my contract for that season, they had me working on my due date to have my baby. And I said, ‘You know, I can't sign this.’ And it went back and forth and back and forth and it just never got worked out. »

Sundance: Fox Searchlight in record $17.5m deal for 'Birth Of A Nation'

26 January 2016 9:47 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sundance: Fox Searchlight swooped on Monday night for worldwide rights to Nate Parker’s The Birth Of A Nation, reportedly paying $17.5m in what would be the biggest ever on-site deal in Park City.

Separately, Amazon Studios has snapped up another Sundance title, taking North American rights to Todd Solondz’s Wiener-Dog.

Parker’s slave revolt drama The Birth Of A Nation premiered on Monday at the Eccles and earned a prolonged standing ovation. Bron Studios, Mandalay Pictures, Phantom Four and Tiny Giant Productions produced.

The film’s resonance is particularly profound in a season when diversity and a perceived lack of recognition of non-white actors has dominated the headlines.

Buyers were out in force and moved quickly to pursue it. According to reports Netflix offered a higher sum - around $20m - but Parker is understood to have wanted wide theatrical exposure and in the end Searchlight won out and was closing the deal on Tuesday »

Outrage Watch: If you're going to be mad at Kristen Stewart, at least be mad for the right reason

25 January 2016 5:24 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. Kristen Stewart is just the latest white celebrity to get in hot water for her tone-deaf comments on the #OscarssoWhite controversy, thereby joining the ranks of such luminaries as Charlotte Rampling, Michael Caine and Julie Delpy. The only problem? Kristen Stewart never commented on #Oscarssowhite. In a new interview with Variety from the Sundance Film Festival, the Twilight star can be heard castigating those who "sit around complaining" about inequality to "do something" -- and the comments have widely been put in context of the debate around the 2016 Academy Awards and its lily-white group of acting nominees. That would be hugely offensive! And yet anger was stoked by the vague wording of the article accompanying the video, which originally read »

Director Steve McQueen Weighs In on Oscar Controversy as Julie Delpy Apologizes for Comments: 'It Was Never Meant to Diminish the Injustice Done to African-American Artists'

Director Steve McQueen says the #OscarSoWhite problem isn't so much with the Academy, but with the film industry as a whole. McQueen, the only back director to helm a Best Picture winner, 12 Years a Slave, said that in order to see diversity among Oscar nominees, the change must begin by diversifying the types of movies that are being produced. "One could talk about percentages of certain people who are Academy members and the demographics and so forth, but the real issue is movies being made," he told The Guardian.
