Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

18 October 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series »

Lena Headey Recalls First Encounter With Harvey Weinstein: ‘I Had a Strong Sense of Don’t Come Near Me’

17 October 2017 12:22 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Lena Headey is recalling her encounters with Harvey Weinstein and how uncomfortable the Hollywood producer made her feel when they first met.

The Game of Thrones star recounted in a series of tweets posted on Tuesday that she first met Weinstein at the 2005 Venice Film Festival, where they were screening her film, The Brothers Grimm, claiming the producer asked her to take a stroll.

"I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off," Headey, 44, wrote, also alleging that she was "subjected to endless bullying by director Terry Gilliam." "I was genuinely shocked. I remember thinking, ‘It’s got to be a joke,'" she added.

She then suggested that they go back and grab a drink with the people they came with, noting that since the alleged incident she "was never in any other Miramax film."

Jean Rochefort obituary

9 October 2017 8:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

French actor who made his name in sex farces of the 1970s and missed out on a starring role in Terry’s Gilliam’s Don Quixote film

With his lean, tall figure, his sunken, weary features, doleful eyes, moustache and prominent nose, the French actor Jean Rochefort, who has died aged 87, seemed born to play Don Quixote. Terry Gilliam thought the same when in 1998 he cast Rochefort as the idealistic and impractical Don in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which was also to have featured Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis in leading roles.

Everything was set up when Rochefort fell ill with prostate problems that meant he could not sit on a horse. Shooting was abandoned after a few days because Gilliam would not replace Rochefort. Despite many attempts to restart the project (which themselves became the subject of the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha), with different actors as »

French Actor Jean Rochefort Dies at 87

9 October 2017 5:25 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Perhaps forever to be known as “The Best Don Quixote Who Never Was,” French actor Jean Rochefort has died at age 87, according to Afp.

Rochefort was hospitalized in August and died overnight on Sunday, Afp reported, according to Deadline.

One of the most loved, iconoclastic figures of French cinema in the last 70 years, Rochefort first began appearing in films in 1955.

Both a romantic leading man and character actor, Rochefort was a three time César honoree equally skilled in dramatic and comedic roles. He starred in a number of successful, critically praised French films which attracted international audiences including Ridicule and The Hairdresser’s Husband. »

Jean Rochefort Dies: French Actor Was Famously to Appear in ‘Don Quixote’

9 October 2017 5:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French actor Jean Rochefort, who rose to prominence in the 1960s and was equally adept at arthouse dramas and crowdpleasing comedies, appearing in “The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe” and “Pardon Mon Affaire” as well as Patrice Leconte’s “The Hairdresser’s Husband” and “Ridicule,” has died. He was 87.

Rochefort died in a Paris hospital on Sunday night. The actor’s death was confirmed by his daughter Clemence, one of his five children.

Rochefort last starred opposite Sandrine Kiberlain in Philippe Le Guay’s “Florida,” which world-premiered at Locarno in 2015 and was nominated for Variety Piazza Grande Award.

His potential English-language breakthrough, as the Don Quixote character in Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” was famously abandoned during production. The struggles to get this feature off the ground were later memorably chronicled in the documentary “Lost in La Mancha.”

A pillar of French cinema, Rochefort made his leap into the limelight in »

Flickering Myth Film Class: How to Open Strongly

8 October 2017 8:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the latest instalment of Flickering Myth’s film class, Tom Jolliffe looks at how to open strongly…

It takes a great deal to get an audience to succumb to your film. You need to keep their attention for the entirety of the film. The best way to hook them in of course is to open strong.

Whether an action film, horror, or any other genre, setting the tone for your film is essential. Even if you know you’re going to flip things up and surprise. If you begin with subversion, then the audience can expect something a little unexpected. Of course whether they get that is down to the skill in translating a strong opening and making it last through until a strong finale. There are countless examples of films opening fantastically only fall away pretty quickly. For a recent example just look at Spectre. Fantastic opening. Whilst »

Nothing about “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” has come easy for Terry Gilliam. After his first attempt to make the movie nearly two decades got washed out by weather, with one piece of bad luck coming after another (captured with tragic beauty in the documentary “Lost In La Mancha“), the director has forever been trying to get his film back in front of cameras.

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Big Sick (Michael Showalter)

From start to finish, The Big Sick, directed by Michael Showalter, works as a lovingly-rendered, cinematic answer to the dinner party question: “So how did you two meet?” Based on comedian Kumail Nanjiani‘s real life (he co-wrote the screenplay with his wife Emily V. Gordon), we meet Kumail (Nanjiani) as he finishes a stand-up set in Chicago. He becomes fast friends with a »

The Furniture: Brazil's Pungent Pot of Duct Soup

4 September 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Hi there! I want to talk to you about ducts.

I mean that quite seriously, though I’m also quoting the opening lines of Terry Gilliam’s wacky and wonderful Brazil. It’s a film with a lot of unique production design, for which art director Norman Garwood and set decorator Maggie Gray received an Oscar nomination. They lost to Out of Africa, but I find it helpful to pretend that didn’t happen.

It’s nearly impossible to choose a single element to feature. I’ve half a mind to simply post all of the bleakly hilarious propaganda posters that clutter the walls of the film’s dystopian metropolis. Another option would be the design of the dream sequences, which become increasingly majestic as Sam Lowry »

'Diva!': Film Review | Venice 2017

Though she’s not quite the household name that her contemporaries Anna Magnani and Alida Valli are, Italian actress Valentina Cortese had an impressive career both on screen and on stage. Besides her romantic and professional relationship with Italian theater legend Giorgio Strehler, she worked with such film luminaries as Robert Wise, Jules Dassin, Joseph L. Mankiewicz, Terry Gilliam, William Dieterle — as well as Fellini, Antonioni and Truffaut — even garnering an Oscar nomination for her supporting part as an alcoholic and aging actress in Truffaut’s Day for Night.

Adam Driver, David Lowery, and Jeff Nichols Debate Indies, Studio Movies, Netflix, and Legacies

2 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Last weekend in Little Rock, Arkansas, Jeff Nichols launched Premiere, the first event of his newly minted Arkansas Cinema Society. The writer-director of “Loving,” “Mud,” and “Midnight Special” screened a selection of smart movies, including Jim Jarmusch’s “Paterson” and J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” hosted by star Adam Driver, whose family spent summers in Arkansas. Austin-based David Lowery brought “Pete’s Dragon” and “A Ghost Story” and producer Noah Stahl came with current release “Patti Cake$.”

I interviewed Driver, Lowery, and Nichols about how they define creative independence as they balance high- and low-budget movies. (It has been edited for length and clarity.)

Jeff Nichols: I’m smack dab in the middle of the first draft of “Alien Nation” for Fox, trying to balance sensibilities. When you set out to work on something with a big price tag on it in terms of production cost, »
