Drg takes on sales of 'Veni Vidi Vici' starring Thomas Bo Larsen

3 April 2017 1:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mtg’s off-beat Nordic series set in the world of adult movies premiered at Miptv.

UK-based worldwide content distributor Drg has taken on sales of Nordic thriller Veni Vidi Vici, about a washed-up arthouse film director who gets caught up in the world of porn. 

It is the latest Nordic series with international ambitions from Swedish production and distribution outfit Mtg Studios.

Both companies are owned by burgeoning digital entertainment company Modern Times Group (Mtg), but Mtg Studios does not automatically distribute its productions through Drg.

Its recent comedy series Swedish Dicks - co-starring Keanu Reeves and Peter Stormare - is being sold internationally by Lionsgate, for example.

In the 10-part series Veni Vidi Vici, Danish actor Thomas Bo Larsen stars as pretentious film director Karsten Daugaard who agrees to direct a porn movie after his latest arthouse romance flops at the box office. 

The decision introduces Karsten to the murky world of adult entertainment and will »

Movie Review – Ghost In The Shell (2017)

1 April 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghost in the Shell, 2017.

Directed by Rupert Sanders.

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano, Michael PittPilou Asbæk, Chin HanJuliette Binoche and Michael Wincott.

Synopsis:

In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals.

The live-action adaptation of 1995’s ground-breaking anime Ghost in the Shell arrives on a tidal wave of controversy; fans are well aware of the concessions that come with adapting Japanimation into a $110 million 12A-rated movie, and that says nothing of the perceived “whitewashing” outrage regarding Scarlett Johansson’s casting as a character who was Asian in the source material.

Though the hardcore faithful are likely to nitpick it to death regardless, it’s an unexpected pleasure to report that Hollywood’s Ghost in the Shell gets much more right than it does wrong, »

"They created her, but they cannot control her." Paramount has just debuted the second official trailer for Rupert Sanders' live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, based on the original manga series. We've already seen one trailer and the Super Bowl spot, but this new one is even better. Scarlett Johansson stars as "The Major", a "one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid" who leads an elite task force as part of Section 9. She goes on an epic search to find a hacker criminal who wants to destroy all the technology at Hanka Robotics. Also starring Michael Pitt, Juliette Binoche, Michael Wincott, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, plus filmmaker Takeshi Kitano, Joseph Naufahu, with Pilou Asbæk as Batou.
