Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Viggo Mortensen on his The Hateful Eight regret

22 March 2015 11:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Promotional work on other movies led to Viggo Mortensen turning Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight down...

Quentin Tarantino is currently in the throes of his putting his new film, The Hateful Eight, together. The movie sees him follow up Oscar-winning Django Unchained with another western, and as always Tarantino has attracted quite the cast. Channing Tatum, Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Jennifer Jason Leigh are all on board.

One man who isn't, though, is Viggo Mortsensen. The Lord Of The Rings star had been linked with the film, and in a new interview with Grantland, the actor admitted that he and Tarantino "did meet" about the project.

"All of last fall, I travelled non-stop", he said. "I was on a plane every two days to promote Jauja and Far From Men. I knew as a producer and an actor that I needed »

‘Ixcanul,’ ‘600 Miles’ Triumph at Mexico’s Guadalajara Fest

14 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Repeating triumphs at Berlin, Jayro Bustamante’s “Ixcanul” — a traditions-versus-women’s-rights piece set in Guatemala — and Gabriel Ripstein’s Tim Roth starrer “600 Miles” topped the 30th Guadalajara Festival Saturday, “Ixcanul” scooping best picture and director in its Ibero-America Competition and “600 Miles” the Mezcal Prize for best Mexican fiction feature. Celso Garcia’s road movie “The Thin Yellow Line” took a Special Jury Prize in the Ibero-American competish.

“Yellow Line” – which world preemed in Guadalajara – features a deep cast, led by Damian Alcazar then, Joaquin Cosio, Silverio Palacios, Gustavo Sanchez Parra and smoky newcomer Americo Hollander, as a team of loveable screw-ups hired to paint dividers along a long stretch of empty Mexican highway.

Fest-favorite, “600 Miles” had detractors at the confab, mostly tied to script issues, but there was broad enthusiasm for Roth’s work as a manipulator and lead Kristyan Ferrer’s compliance. The film juices gunrunning U.S.-Mexico, »

‘600 Miles,’ ‘Ixcanul,’ ‘Alias Maria’ Play Colombia’s Cartagena Festival

11 March 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Opening with awaited Colombian title “Alias Maria” (pictured), threading the concept of memory – including fest’s own past – throughout its program, the 55th Cartagena International Film Festival, Latin America’s oldest fest, bows today under a new artistic director, Diana Bustamante, one of Colombia’s leading international producers (“The Wind Journeys,” “Crab Trap,” “La Playa D.C.,” “Refugiado” ).

It shows. The 55th Ficci, as it is known in local parlance, picks up, via a section dubbed 5 + 5 Ficci, on signature past Cartagena Fest titles from Latin America, and with a second sidebar, Gabo: The Films of My Life, on movies which impacted Colombia’s Nobel-prize novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, a writer who studied cinema, taught cinema at Cuba’s San Antonio de los Baños Film School and whose novels inspired some 20 films. Arguably, his finest film creation, son Rodrigo Garcia, closes Ficci with “Last Days in the Desert.”

October Gale movie review: islands in the scream

9 March 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s not very suspenseful or romantic, but the always awesome Patricia Clarkson remains calm and kicks some ass, so that’s something. I’m “biast” (pro): love Patricia Clarkson

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, it’s a different sort of damsel-in-distress flick, at least. It’s not very suspenseful or thrilling or exciting, and it’s entirely romantically inert, which is not what it intends, but hey, Patricia Clarkson (The Maze Runner) is as awesome as always. She is Helen, a doctor from Toronto who is spending some alone time at her remote lakeside cabin on an island reachable only by boat, still grieving for her husband (Callum Keith Rennie [Fifty Shades of Grey] in flashbacks) who died the year before. But there’s always a mysterious stranger! When William (Scott Speedman: The Vow) washes up on her solitary femaleness, bleeding from a gunshot wound, »

October Gale Review

7 March 2015 9:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Patricia Clarkson is one of those indispensable character actors that is too rarely delegated to leading lady status. However, she makes the most of a meandering script in a new film she headlines, October Gale, which also reunites her with Cairo Time director Ruba Nadda.

The actress plays Helen Matthews, a recently widowed woman in her fifties returning to the Ontario cottage she used to enjoy with her husband, James (played in flashback by Callum Keith Rennie). It’s hard for Helen to let go, especially when remnants of James are everywhere: in the picture frames on the wall, in the deck of cards she shuffles tenderly, in the year-old sports section of the newspaper left by the fireplace.

Helen could use something to pre-occupy her as she lounges around the cabin, tenderly coveting the things her husband used to own, and that distraction soon comes in the form of »

Guadalajara Film Festival Celebrates Booming Latin Cinema

6 March 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just after Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “Birdman” won big at the Oscars, Mexico’s 30th Guadalajara Festival shows why — and why Mexican talent lures Hollywood.

Adding to the Oscar glory, last month, Latin America swept most top awards at the Berlin festival (“The Club,” “Ixcanul,” above, “600 Miles,” “The Second Mother,” “Nasty Baby”).

At Guadalajara, 22 Mexican movies vie for the Mezcal Prize, while the fest also boasts a 15-title Ibero-American feature competition and the Co-production Meeting with 28 projects.

The festival runs March 21-30 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico (

In 2014, a group of markedly different Mexican movies performed robustly at Mexico’s box office: “Perfect Dictatorship,” a political lampoon, hit $13 million; romantic comedy “Marry Who You Can” grossed $11.2 million; and biopic “Cantinflas,” which world premiered at 2014’s Guadalajara, hit $8.5 million and repped Mexico in the foreign-language Oscar race.

Guadalajara’s 2015 Mezcal competition is equally eclectic and plural, reflecting Mexican cinema’s good moment, »

Perfect Storm: Mystery Tinged Romance from Nadda Gets Blown Away in Gusts

There’s much to admire in Montreal-born director Ruba Nadda’s latest film, October Gale, which reunites her with the Patricia Clarkson, star of her generally well-received 2009 film, Cairo Time. Nadda once again provides Clarkson with a melancholy tinged lead role that provides us with a framework that recalls classic ‘women’s pictures’ of the studio era, something we’d most likely have seen from a Cukor or Negulesco and starring the embittered likes of a Joan Crawford or Barbara Stanwyck. Clarkson evokes a softer sentimentality than those references, which may explain why many will be dismayed when the film suddenly becomes a romance tinged mystery thriller, only one that doesn’t want to sacrifice any of these particular elements and therefore tends to seem watered down on all fronts.

October Gale Review

2 March 2015 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Ruba Nadda

Cast: Patricia Clarkson, Scott Speedman, Tim Roth, Aidan Devine, Callum Keith Rennie

Run Time: 91 minutes

Synopsis: Whilst mourning the death of her husband on their island retreat, a widowed doctor is forced to treat a mysterious man who washes ashore during stormy weather with a gunshot wound. 

Premiering during a special presentation at the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), October Gale is a dramatic thriller that’s too devoid of tension to be considered thrilling and far short of emotional and relatable characters to be considered dramatic.

All this is a shame because the opening sequence of sweeping Parry Sound long shots and Steadicam shots of Helen (Patricia Clarkson) opening and cleaning the family’s vacation cottage offered a promising segue into what appears to be (on the surface), a study in normative bereavement with a murderous twist. Likewise, the film’s setting is a beautiful contradiction »

Comics on Film: Is It Time for a New Solo 'Hulk' Film?

19 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The Marvel cinematic universe is a narrative entity that seems to be getting bigger and more popular with each passing year. It hit the jackpot in 2008 with the casting of Robert Downey Jr. in the original Iron Man film, blew up tremendously with 2012’s superhero team-up film The Avengers, and shocked the world of movies by creating a massive box office hit with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy. One character that hasn’t been able to break into that level of popularity, though – at least on his own – is Bruce Banner, aka the Hulk. The second film in Marvel’s cinematic universe, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk starring Edward Norton and Tim Roth, was only a modest box office success when compared to Iron...

Liam Cunningham Joins Robert Pattinson For WW1 Movie

18 February 2015 6:36 AM, PST | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Ireland's very own Liam Cunningham is the latest star to be attached to The Childhood of a Leader, a WW1 movie currently shooting in Hungary and the debut feature of Brady Corbet. Already on board the movie are Robert Pattinson, Tim Roth and Bernice Bejo. It's set to be the story of an American family in France at the end of WW1, whose young son begins to demonstrate some very disturbing behaviour, amid a backdrop of a devout Christian upbringing and ongoing peace negotiations as the war draws to a close. Cunningham's schedule is still dominated by the hugely popular Game of Thrones, and fans on this side of the Atlantic are hoping his Sir Davos Seaworth isn't one of the rumoured cast that are due to be culled this year. Season 5 kicks off in just a few weeks and George Rr Martin recently dropped the bombshell that some of »

Second Opinion – Selma (2015)

12 February 2015 1:24 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Selma, 2015.

Directed by Ava DuVernay.

Starring David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Giovanni Ribisi, Carmen Ejogo, Cuba Gooding Jr, Oprah Winfrey, Common and Tim Roth.


A chronicle of Martin Luther King’s campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965.


Watching a film like Selma is no easy feat and someone who catches a glimpse of some of the violence portrayed in it may think they’d seen footage of the Ferguson riots. Instead of a traditional biopic of Martin Luther King, director Ava DuVernay and writer Paul Webb have focussed on a pivotal moment – the march from Selma to Montgomery in 1965. Selma is a powerful film that demonstrates how far we’ve come in terms of racial equality, whilst still highlighting how far we have to go.

Credit has to go to DuVernay and Webb for creating a film that is so unflinching in its brutality. »

London – Global production and distribution giant FremantleMedia has taken a 25% stake in Corona TV, the newly created TV production company from filmmaking duo Richard Johns and Rupert Jermyn.

FremantleMedia previously worked with Johns and Jermyn on the development of “Birds of Prey,” a TV adaptation of the first three novels of Wilbur Smith’s Courtney series, penned by “Layer Cake” scriptwriter J.J. Connolly.

Corona TV is a sister company of Corona Pictures, which was founded by Johns and Jermyn in London in 2009. The company develops, produces and markets feature films and television programs to every country in the world, including the major established markets, and key emerging markets such as China.
