Broad Green Pictures Is Missing Release Dates and Angering Filmmakers. Here’s Why.

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was baffling when distributor Broad Green Pictures pulled Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” from the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, the same day as its intended premiere, with a press release that said the “post production process has taken longer than expected.”

Nearly a month later, Broad Green has made no further comment on the film’s status, but its homepage still boasts that “Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club documentary will have it’s [sic] official world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival!”

That disconnect (and typo) could be a matter of sloppy site maintenance, but multiple IndieWire interviews with people familiar with Walker’s film and Broad Green suggest more complex issues dog the three-year-old would-be studio. (Walker declined to comment for this article; Broad Green executives didn’t respond to requests for comment.)

China’s Hishow Entertainment has boarded a pair of upcoming movies from Nu Image/Millennium Films: “Hunter Killer” and “Escobar.” The deal is one of the biggest completed so far at the European Film Market, alongside the Berlin Film Festival, and also one of the biggest by a Chinese indie in recent months.

Celebrating the movies of Keanu Reeves

8 February 2017 6:39 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Feb 17, 2017

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Much like his character in the John Wick films, Keanu Reeves is a man with very little to lose.

See related  Grimm season 6 episode 6 review: Breakfast In Bed Grimm season 6 episode 5 review: The Seven Year Itch Grimm season 6 episode 4 review: El Cuegle Grimm season 6 episode 3 review: Captain, My Captain

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.

Born in Beirut to a showgirl and a geologist, Reeves is also a rabid »

Setting a Precedent: What Do the Golden Globes Mean for the Oscars and Emmys?

11 January 2017 9:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s fashionable to say that the Golden Globes are irrelevant when it comes to the Oscar race. Indeed, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. is a collective of roughly 90 international journalists often off on their own trip and sometimes influenced by swag and access. But what they do have is a primetime network show in the thick of the awards season, providing both a marketing opportunity for films in play and a chance for prospective Oscar winners to dust off their acceptance speeches.

Moreover, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made the Globes more relevant this year by pushing the voting window for the Oscars entirely into January for the first time in more than a decade. For years, the Golden Globes were held after phase-one voting closed, but this year the show aired just as Academy members sat with ballots in hand, with nearly a week of voting ahead of them. »
