‘Comrade Detective’ Trailer: Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Unite For A 1983 Romanian TV Series

27 July 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If you like your action-spy dramas like “The Americans” and “Homeland,” that is with serious political overtones and lots of high tension, then “Comrade Detective” probably isn’t for you. But if you love Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt at their goofiest and are a fan of “Kung Pow! Enter the Fist” then you won’t be able to resist bingeing this new Amazon series.

As the hilarious first trailer makes very clear, “Comrade Detective” is the story of a hit 1983 Romanian buddy cop TV series that finds its way into Tatum and Gordon-Levitt’s hands. The two actors decide to bring the series to America, but not by starring in an adaptation themselves. Instead, they assemble an all star voice cast to lip dub the Romanian series. “Comrade Detective” is the result of this endeavor.

Venice 2017 Line-Up Led By Darren Aronofsky, Guillermo Del Toro, George Clooney, William Friedkin & More

27 July 2017 3:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With the steady stream of blockbusters starting to dry up, fall festival season is fast approaching, and following big Tiff and Nyff announcements earlier in the week, Venice debuted their 2017 slate this morning. The Lido-based festival is one of our favorites, and while it’s sometimes existed in the shadow of Cannes, that’s begun to shift in recent years thanks to some killer lineups (Paul Thomas Anderson and Terrence Malick being among those who’ve debuted movies there), and a killer Oscar run – with “Gravity,” “Birdman,” “Spotlight” and “La La Land” all debuting there before going on to enormous awards season success.

IndieWire Fall Film Festival Wish List: The 58 Movies We Want to See Most

24 July 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Dunkirk” aside, deep summer looks like a fallow season for major films — but appearances are deceiving. This is perhaps their most-essential moment on the movie calendar, as it’s when distributors huddle, haggle, and negotiate to determine which movies will head for the almighty awards-season launch festivals of Venice, Telluride, Toronto, and New York.

From the festivals’ perspectives, they’re vying for the starriest red-carpet gala world premieres. (The exception is Telluride, which doesn’t have to vie; it gets to cherry pick its impeccably curated four-day Labor Day Weekend selection in secret.) Ahead of next week’s rollout of announcements, we called around for intel on what we can expect to see.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s New Short Film ‘Valentine’ Is an Exquisite Rock Opera

18 July 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one has cooler side projects than Paul Thomas Anderson. Last November, shortly before starting production on his still untitled London fashion drama with Daniel Day-Lewis, Anderson directed the short film “Valentine,” a behind-the-scenes look at the pop rock band Haim recording three songs for their recent album “Something to Tell You.” Anderson also collaborated with Radiohead on three videos last year for songs off their acclaimed album “A Moon Shaped Pool.”

Read MorePaul Thomas Anderson Directs Haim in One Intimate Long Take in ‘Right Now’ Music Video

Haim released the first four and a half minutes of the short film as a music video for their song “Right Now” in April, though “video” is a bit of a misnomer, as Anderson shot “Valentine” on beautiful 35mm.

“This short plays well with concert films, musicals, late night shows, sing-a-longs and a glass of beer,” reads a description on the 35mm print canister. »

6 Filmmakers Who Launched Massive Female Action Stars

18 July 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s unfortunate that Luc Besson’s latest multi-million dollar action spectacle is called “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” because the film is as much about its male hero (the eponymous Valerian, played by Dane DeHaan) as it is about his female partner, Laureline (Cara Delevingne). A long-time passion project of the filmmaker, Besson’s newest feature is based on the French sci-fi comics series “Valérian and Laureline,” written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières, a childhood favorite of Besson. Like the series that inspired it, the film follows a pair of “spatio-temporal agents” who are charged with keeping the peace across the universe.

Valerian may get title billing, but both DeHaan and Delevingne’s characters exist on very equal footing. Most of the time, it’s actually Laureline who saves the day when the notoriously hot-headed Valerian goes off the rails and biffs yet another important mission. »

Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson Have A 70mm Film Support Group

14 July 2017 12:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” is just one week away from opening in theaters nationwide, and it marks a big step in the career of Christopher Nolan. The director has experimented with using 70mm film for select scenes in his movies dating back to “The Prestige,” but the WWII drama is the first time he used 70mm film for the entire picture. That’s right: 100% of “Dunkirk” was filmed using 70mm film cameras, and 75% was shot using IMAX cameras.

Updated Oscar predictions for July

14 July 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As the weather gets hotter and hotter, thoughts of the Academy Awards begin percolating in my mind. It’s always there, of course, but now, officially in the second half of the year, it feels time to get down to business, as it were. Summer counter programming is out and hoping to catch the eye of voters as they enjoy the months before they get down to awards season business. All this is to say that predictions are in flux. There are always differences from month to month, but from here on out, there could be more than usual. That’s just the name of the game. As you’ll see below, there’s some definite movement in my predictions. The big question mark for me right now is Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. Some have actually seen it, but no full reviews are out yet. That leads you to wonder »

Winston Churchill is the hot ticket into the awards race right now.

15 Essential Movies Shot On 70mm Film, From ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ to ‘Dunkirk’

12 July 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

70mm is back! Thanks to Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan, one of the oldest and grandest traditions in Hollywood is making a comeback after years of financial setbacks and near-extinction. As Nolan has said many times, shooting in 70mm proved an immersive and more textured experience than any other form of cinema (side note: The 70mm film process actually uses 65mm film stock, which is printed onto 70mm film for projection purposes).

Due to the costly nature of film and theaters’ lack of 70mm projectors, it’s been quite a challenge to get to a place where Tarantino and Nolan can make entire features using 65/70mm, but the preservation of film is turning in their favor.

Attention, Filmmakers: Here’s How You Can Direct Shots Like Paul Thomas Anderson — Watch

12 July 2017 7:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What makes a Paul Thomas Anderson shot feel so unique? That’s the question at the center of a new video essay from StudioBinder that analyzes the director’s most iconic images and teaches aspiring filmmakers how they can approach shot-buiding from a similar perspective.

Anderson has made eight features in his two decades as a director, including the upcoming fashion drama with Daniel Day-Lewis, and when looking at his filmography in chronological order one can easily see the evolution of his style and personal filmmaking voice. His early days were marked by his greatest influences — Jonathan Demme and his intimate closeups, Martin Scorsese and his tracking shots — and Anderson’s style has become defined by the way he has taken these touchstones and made them his own.

‘Kékszakállú’ Trailer: Artful Festival Favorite Focuses on Very Different Women on Verge of Major Breakthroughs — Watch

11 July 2017 12:12 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A favorite on last year’s festival circuit, Gaston Solnicki’s artful and inventive “Kékszakállú” is bound for a limited release later this month, and its debut trailer only hints at the unique joys awaiting inside of it. The film is billed as “a portrait of several young women at the threshold of adulthood, feeling their way through various crises born of the insular comforts of class privilege. Obliquely inspired by Bela Bartok’s sole opera, Bluebeard’s Castle is radically transposed within the alternating milieux of work and repose in Buenos Aires and Punta del Este.”

In an official statement, Solnicki further explained his inspirations for the feature: “Two years ago I was under the spell of Bartok’s feverish opera, and it was through the lens of a similarly folkloric transfiguration that I began to envision the lives of teenagers who vacationed much as I had as a youth: summers at the coast, »

Annapurna has tapped Twentieth Century Fox to oversee its home entertainment releases.
