Als Ice Bucket Challenge Has Gone Global & Retro Cinematic

22 August 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tom Hiddleston after his challengeI know it's for a good cause but we're definitely reaching saturation point for the Als Ice Bucket Challenge. Soon, like maybe in 5 minutes, it will be over. But Als is enjoying huge fundraising numbers so good on them for dreaming it up. I hope all these celebrates dousing themselves with freezing water are donating a dollar for every viewing of their videos and vines.

I've avoided sharing any because how would you choose? I mean other than skipping my beloved childhood idol Olivia Newton-John who kind of misses the point, filling her thimble "bucket" of ice with undoubtedly warm pool water before trickling it over her gorgeous blonde head. Let's just say Her Chills Weren't Multiplying. She Was Not Losing Control.

So why am I posting this? To note that this ice bucket madness which was mostly music stars at first has gone global. Here's »

Cannes– Paris-based Snd-M6 Group, one of France’s major film production-distribution-sales companies, has initiated pre-sales on comedy “La Famille Belier,” the latest film from Eric Lartigau (“The Big Picture”).

Tele Munchen Group has bought rights to Germany, Klockworx/New Select those to Japan. Snd has also closed Benelux (Belga) and Switzerland.

Deals were closed on the basis of the screenplay. Snd will screen an extended promo reel at Cannes.

“It’s not very usual to pre-sell French-speaking films and ‘La Famille Belier’ has pre-sold to two major territories,” said Snd’s Lionel Uzan.

Produced by Jerico and Mars Films, “La Famille Belier” will be released in France by Mars Distribution on December 17.

“Given the reactions, we feel very confident about the film. There is a very strong interest everywhere. We know lots of people will want to screen the promo because the screenplay was very strong,” Uzan added.

Brosnan Can Be Proud of His 007

20 April 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

This week had a free-for-all on Pierce Brosnan’s tenure as James Bond after he, himself, revealed it wasn’t “good enough”. Horatio Harrod conducted the interview for The Telegraph…

“His feelings towards the role are equivocal. “I felt I was caught in a time warp between Roger and Sean,” he says … He mock-shudders. “I have no desire to watch myself as James Bond. ‘Cause it’s just never good enough.” He laughs mirthlessly. “It’s a horrible feeling.”

Read the full interview here.

Soon after, The Guardian headlines an article on their blog as “The name’s Bland, not Bond: why Pierce Brosnan is right about his 007” and twitter was alight with ‘agreement’. Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but Daniel Craig – though a brilliant James Bond – was a version created by the trends of the time (as Brosnan was). Casino Royale built »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Films for 2015: #4. Andrzej Zulawski’s Dark Matter

25 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Dark Matter

Director: Andrzej Zulawski

Writer: Andrzej Zulwaski

Producer: Marcin Wierzchoslawski

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Unknown

We’re trying to keep hope alive on this project, which would be the first film helmed by Andrzej Zulawaki since 2000′s La Fidelite, which starred his then wife, Sophie Marceau. Twin 2012 retrospectives in New York and Los Angeles saw a resurgence in interest in Zulawski’s thrilling and overlooked filmography and some traction on this new project was underway that year. However, there’s been little else detailed about the status of the project, until the 2013 Fantasia International Film Festival honored Zulawski with a Lifetime Achievement Award where the director also participated in Fantasia’s Frontieres Co-Production Market. We’re sincerely hoping he got the backing he needed for Zulawski is true cinematic anomaly, a director whose strange visions are unlike any other.

Tautou, Cluzet, Ozon Set For Rendez-vous Junket

16 January 2014 11:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – A glam slam of Audrey Tautou (“Amelie,” “The Da Vinci Code”), Francois Cluzet (“The Intouchables”) and director François Ozon (“Swimming Pool,” “8 Women”) figure among about 140 French thesps and directors who will talk up upcoming French releases abroad at the 16th UniFrance Rendez-vous.

Launched in 1946, UniFrance sets the standard for international movie promotion of a whole country’s cinema. With 150 journalists, mostly from Europe but also Quebec and Israel, the UniFrance junket is already the biggest of the tear for French films, and one, if not the, biggest act of official national movie promotion in the world.

That said, the junket alone, while featuring 1,000 interviews, is just not enough; more could be done, said UniFrance prexy Jean-Paul Salome. While journalists around the world will always have Paris, and its January Rendez-vous, from 2014 UniFrance will be activating new strategies to promote French movies abroad.

Paris – Bowing Jan.10 at the august Hotel Intercontinental Le Grand, abutting the Place de l’Opera, the 16th Unifrance Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris will be one of the biggest market-junkets ever for a national cinema.

Only France, which with the U.K. hosts one of Europe’s two biggest industries, could organize an event of this magnitude or allure.

110 French movies will screen, a Rendez-vous record, at three Gaumont cinema-theaters just across the Square,

Distributors will attend from 50 countries, principally from Europe, but also for the first time officially from Latin America as well.

In hallowed tradition, UniFrance uses its Rendez-vous to announce and analyze in admirable detail the previous year theatrical box office numbers for French films abroad. 2013’s total trawl looks set to be way down on 2012, an all time high when three juggernauts -  “Taken 2” (Euros 265.8 million: $354.8 million), “The Intouchables” ($268.9 million) and “The Artist »
