2015 Sundance Predictions: Which Film is the Next Whiplash?

19 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Despite the lottery-esque sounding odds, the U.S Dramatic Competition section which produces the finest American indie specimens such as Frozen RiverWinter’s Bone, Blue ValentineMartha Marcy May MarleneBeasts of the Southern WildFruitvale Station and Whiplash is fairly consistent in terms of quality. Last year’s crop of sixteen have almost all had their theatrical releases with Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter being the last one out of the gates (pegged with an early 2015 release). Last week we individually looked at our top 80 Sundance Film Fest Predictions (you’ll find 30 other titles worth considering in our intro) and below, we’ve split the list into narrative and non-fiction film items and have both identified and color-coded our picks in an AtoZ cheat sheet.

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Ariel Kleiman’s Partisan

13 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Following in the path of former Sundance premiered, Australian stamped films such as Animal Kingdom, Top of the Lake and last year’s The Babadook, Ariel Kleiman’s feature debut is a high profile project that received the Sundance Institute/Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award back in ’12 and was part of the 2012 June Directors and Screenwriters Labs. Production on Partisan began in late 2013 and actually shot for a spurt in Georgia, and originally had Oscar Isaac in the lead before being replaced by Vincent Cassel. It was reported that Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker, French artist Sebastian Tellier and UK group Metronomy have each composed a karaoke song especially for the flick. Prior to this, Kleiman built an especially great rapport with the festival, his 2010 short Young Love won an Honorable Mention in Short Filmmaking, and his following short Deeper Than Yesterday (watch here) won the Kodak Discovery Award for Best Short Film »

Japan Box Office: 'Beauty and the Beast' Tops Weekend

11 November 2014 4:12 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Beauty and the Beast, released locally as Bijo to Yaju – the title of the original fairytale in Japanese, topped the weekend box office in Japan with $986,000 (¥114 million) after debuting in the third spot last week for distributor Gaga. The French-German production, starring Vincent Cassel as the beast, saw its take drop significantly from its debut over the three-day holiday last weekend, but still rose to the top of the charts. In an unspectacular weekend at the Japanese box office, supernatural thriller Twilight Sasara Saya, starring Yui Aragaki as a young widowed mother, brought in

Afm: Kinology Teams With Thomas Langmann for ‘Wild Moment’ (Exclusive)

6 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris-based Kinology is re-teaming with “Mesrine’s” producer Thomas Langmann, director Jean-Francois Richet (“Blood Father”) and star Vincent Cassel (“Black Swan”) on “One Wild Moment.”

A remake of a Claude Berri 1977 pic, “Moment” stars Cassel and “Intouchables” star Francois Cluzet as two middle-aged buddies who go on vacation in Corsica with their respective teen daughters (Alice Isaaz, Lola Le Lann). The holiday takes an unusual turn when one of the daughters develops a crush on her dad’s friend.

The pic was co-written by Lisa Azuelos, whose 2008 comedy “Lol” was a major hit in France, and Richet, who recently completed “Blood Father” with Mel Gibson.

Langmann at La Petite Reine is producing. Kinology has acquired international sales rights to the pic and will unveil first footage at the American Film Market.

Gregoire Melin’s Kinology previously sold “Mesrine” (also known as “Public Enemy Number One”), a two-part movie toplining Cassel as French gangster Jacques Mesrine, »

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

Disney's New 'Beauty and the Beast' Gets 'Perks' Scribe

30 September 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If I had to pick my favorite animated film of all time, I would probably end up going with Disney's Beauty And The Beast. It was not one I watched much as a kid. The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame are where my Disney nostalgia attachments lie. However, when I was about fifteen or sixteen, I revisited the movie and took on a whole new appreciation for it, particularly considering that I learned so much about how musicals should operate. The music by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman is lush and filled with character. It drives conflict and story in a way that makes its pace never let up. The film never sits back and spins its wheels in a redundant song, which is why the extended edition of the movie that came out including the song "Human Again" does not work as well.

French Lender Cofiloisirs Expanding its Backing to Foreign Films

22 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As shrinking public funding makes for fewer French films, Cofiloisirs, one of Gaul’s top two lending institutions, is seeking to reach out to filmmakers beyond French borders.

In the past year, the two men behind the money — Herve Digne, who in 2012 was tapped president of Cofiloisirs at the same time that Jean-Baptiste Souchier was appointed managing director — have made a name for themselves in independent film circles, backing such upscale, cast-driven foreign productions as the Julianne Moore-Kristen Stewart starrer “Still Alice,” making its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in a few weeks; and Anton Corbijn’s spy thriller “A Most Wanted Man,” with Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams, which has grossed $10 million Stateside via Roadside Attractions.

Digne and Souchier also have financed such prestige projects as David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars”; Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Search”; Canal Plus’ TV series “Versailles,” which is »

Top 5 gross-out moments in cinema: Monty Python, Irréversible, Jackass

9 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As obsessed with bodily fluids as it is with social awkwardness, The Inbetweeners, be it on TV or the big screen, determinedly sets out to make viewers laugh until a bit of lung comes out. And with The Inbetweeners 2 now taking the boys, ahem, down under for more sexual shenanigans in Australia, the gross-out levels are set to soar (or plummet, depending on your viewpoint).

But making audiences squint, wince and fight their gag reflexes has always been a part of cinema. Sometimes it's done for belly laughs (Cameron Diaz styling her hair with Ben Stiller's homemade gel in There's Something About Mary), sometimes to elicit feelings of shock or revulsion (Ray Liotta forced to dine on his own brain in Hannibal). And sometimes it does all of the above at once (an army of zombies being cut to dripping ribbons with a lawnmower in Peter Jackson's splatstick horror »

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – July 28th 2014

29 July 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Killing was an American remake from AMC based on the nordic noir show popularised over here by showings on BBC 4. The Us version moved things to Seattle where it rained constantly and revolved around the murder of Rosie Larson. Unfairly compared to Twin Peaks when it debuted, it was nonetheless something of a hit on Channel 4 for at least two seasons. I lost track of it around the mid-point of season two, not because I didn’t like it, I enjoyed it lots despite its grimness but it became impossible to keep up with the weekly scheduled showings and 4Od was, and still is not very good. From what I hear season two wrapped up the murder of Larson and season three moved on to a new mystery which was just as gripping.

The reason I mention this anyway is that like Arrested Development, Netflix has picked up »

‘Rio, Eu Te Amo’, the third entry in the city-focused anthology series, releases a trailer

15 July 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anthology films have been a mainstay in cinema for a number of years, as numerous filmmakers take the opportunity to create short films around a specific subject, or rooted in a specific genre. One of the more well-received of these anthologies was 2007′s Paris, Je T’aime, which led to a New York, I Love You. Film fans were thus intrigued to learn that a third one was underway, this time focused on the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. Titled Rio, Eu Te Amo, or Rio, I Love You, the anthology features works from directors such as Fernando Meirelles, Paolo Sorrentino, José Padilha, and John Turturro, with performances from Emily Mortimer, Vincent Cassel, Jason Isaacs, and Harvey Keitel.

'Tarzan' Official Synopsis Revealed, 'Avengers 2' Footage Described and 'Child 44' and 'Vatican Tapes' Dates

15 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Summit announced last night Child 44, the new film from Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel, will hit theaters on April 17, 2015. Hope you weren't counting on it being a major Oscar contender. Mark Neveldine (Crank) has revealed his new film, The Vatican Tapes will hit theaters on February 27, 2015. Starring Michael Pena, Djimon Hounsou, Dougray Scott, Kathleen Robertson and Olivia Dudley the horror film follows the haunting tale of 27-year-old Angela Holmes, played by Dudley, an ordinary girl who begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close to her, causing serious injury and death. The local priest, Father Lozano (Pena), examines Holmes and believes she is possessed, but when Vicar Imani (Hounsou) and Cardinal Bruun (Andersson) are called from the Vatican to exorcise the demon, it proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than they imagined. »

Tom Hardy’s Child 44 Lands April Release Date

15 July 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anyone who read and enjoyed Tom Rob Smith’s period thriller novel Child 44, set in Joseph Stalin’s Soviet Union, was likely thrilled when Locke star Tom Hardy landed the lead role of disgraced Mgb agent Leo Demidov, who investigates a long string of grisly child murders. Physically, it was pretty damn perfect casting, and it also fueled fans’ hopes that director Daniel Espinosa wouldn’t be toning down the book’s violent, disturbing content. After all, Hardy has built his career playing complex, disturbed individuals (see his stellar work in Bronson).

Now, we finally know when we’ll find out whether Hardy nailed the role – and more importantly, whether the other main storytelling strengths of Child 44 have survived the trip to the big screen, as Summit has just set the thriller to open on April 17th, 2015.

Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman also star in Child 44 along with Gary Oldman, »

Lionsgate Slots Tom Hardy Russia Thriller for Spring

15 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

What does it signify that Lionsgate and Summit are slotting director Daniel Espinosa's "Child 44" for spring release (April 17, 2015)? Given that Tom Hardy--probably the most exciting young actor working today--is not yet a guaranteed box office draw (see "Warriors," "Locke"), Lionsgate may have wanted to use the award season as a springboard for a complex World War II period thriller set in Stalinist Russia that is by no means a guaranteed commercial hit. (What is these days?)  In the foreign-financed film, adapted by Richard Price from Tom Rob Smith's 2008 bestseller, Hardy plays hard-ass Mgb agent Leo Domidov, who's tough on traitors (one is played byJason Clarke), at least until he and his wife (Noomi Rapace) fall under suspicion by his boss (Vincent Cassel) and careerist colleague (Joel Kinnaman). Meanwhile Domidov convinces a reluctant rural cop (Gary Oldman) to help investigate an actual serial child killer--who is of no. »

Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace’s Child 44 lands April 2015 release date

15 July 2014 1:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wow, if this were another kind of website, that headline would have made one juicy piece of celebrity gossip. No, The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy is not having a 44th child with PrometheusNoomi Rapace. The two are, however, starring in Swedish director Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44, about a Russian secret police officer framed for treason in 1950.

The officer, played by Hardy, is sent to a remote outpost, where he uncovers a series of muders tied to a government conspiracy. The film also stars Joel Kinnaman (Robocop, The Killing), Gary Oldman and his Dawn of the Planet of the Apes co-star Jason Clarke, and Black Swan‘s Vincet Cassel.

According to Deadline, the film has been given an April 17, 2015 release date from 20th Century Fox. For those keeping track at home, that places it two weeks after Fast & Furious 7 and the same day as Paul Blart Mall »

Release date confirmed for Child 44

14 July 2014 10:22 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and Gary Oldman headline the adaptation of Child 44, which now has a release date...


Tom Rob Smith's acclaimed and popular novel Child 44 has long since been picked up for a movie adaptation. So long, in fact, that production has now wrapped on the project, with Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel all in the cast.

The film is in post-production now, with director Daniel Espinosa - he of Safe House fame - shaping his final cut. And now we know when we can expect the movie. Summit Entertainment has given Child 44 a release date of April 17th 2015 in the Us. No UK date has thus far been announced.

Nonetheless, an April date suggests confidence in the project. It goes up against Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 and Selfless, starring Ryan Reynolds.
