Spain suddenly upped in June its tax incentives for film and TV. The move boosted the consolidation of the Canary Islands -with a special fiscal regime- as one of the most attractive destinies for filming in Europe.
The new measures increased to 40% the Islands’ previous 35% tax rebate for foreign shoots, while tax deductions for Spanish productions and co-productions rose to 45% for the first €1 million ($1.2 million), and 40 % onwards, up to $6.3 million. The Islands’ incentives are some 20 percentage points higher than the main parts of the Peninsula.
Rolling in Fuerteventura for two weeks in June, Disney’s untitled “Star Wars” Han Solo feature, serviced by Sur Film, benefited from the new 40% tax rebate, since it’s being applied retroactively.
Alexander Skarsgard’s “The Kill Team,” a co-production between Adrián Guerra’s Nostromo wand U.S. Temple Hill Entertainment and Dan Krauss’s feature film adaptation of his same-titled documentary, rolls in Fuerteventura, with access to tax deductions. »

Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgard charmed us at the Emmy Awards when he accepted the statue for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie (and planted a kiss right on costar Nicole Kidman). The award is a shining moment in the career of Skarsgard, who was best known for playing sexy vampire Eric Northman on True Blood before this. It's also fun timing since his brother Bill is blowing up right now because of It. What's that? You didn't know Pennywise the clown and Eric Northman were brothers? That's right; Alexander and Bill Skarsgard are brothers. Alexander is the oldest Skarsgard at 41, and Bill, whose biggest role was in Netflix's Hemlock Grove before this, is 27. There are actually six Skarsgard siblings total (younger brothers Gustav and Valter are also actors). Oh, and to top it off, they are all the kids of longtime actor Stellan Skarsgard.

At an event in San Francisco Tuesday night, Nicole Kidman praised her Big Little Lies costar Alexander Skarsgard for his Emmy-winning role as her abusive husband in the HBO series. She said, "I'm really glad he won the Emmy because it's very, very hard for an actor or an actress to play somebody that's so unlikable. He was actually overseas when the series was initially released and he said he came back and people were looking at him on the street and going, 'I hate you.'" She then said, "It means people saw what a great job he did as an actor." While his role as Perry is truly despicable, we have to agree with Nicole. We still love you, Alexander (even with the mustache)! »

It is scaring up some record breaking numbers.
The new Stephen King adaptation is on pace to become the highest-grossing horror flick of all time by Thursday, at which point it will have floated past the current record holder, 1973’s The Exorcist (which has a $232.9 million lifetime domestic gross), according to Deadline.
Warner Bros., the studio that produced the film, is claiming the record based solely on genre, excluding other films like The Sixth Sense, Jaws and I Am Legend — which all made more money — by citing them has “hybrid” genres, rather than pure horror, the outlet reports.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in January 2015, Nicole Kidman dropped a bomb on the late-night host: he could have dated her! While recounting the story of how they first met back in the early 2000s - a mutual friend named Rick offered to introduce the two by bringing Nicole to Jimmy's NYC apartment - the Oscar winner couldn't contain herself as she revealed that she "liked" the then-SNL star and had considered the visit "a hangout."

Alexander Skarsgard looked all kinds of fine when he attended the Emmy Awards on Sunday night. Despite sporting that much-debated-about new mustache, the actor had one hell of a night. He took home the award for outstanding supporting actor in a limited series or movie for his role in Big Little Lies, shared a smooch with costar Nicole Kidman (in front of Keith Urban!), and had his mom on his arm as his date. But during his cute acceptance speech, we couldn't help but wonder what the deal is with his accent.

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.
“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, »
One of the more eyebrow-raising moments of the 69th annual Emmy Awards came when Sterling K. Brown, accepting the award for Best Actor in a Drama (the first time the Emmy had gone to an African-American man since Andre Braugher in 1998, whom Brown name-checked), was cut off mid-speech. It’s a pattern familiar to those who watch awards shows, especially given that the award was one of the last of the night. But exactly how long had Brown been talking at that point? And how did the length of his speech compare to others of the evening?
IndieWire crunched the numbers and has the answers. We clocked the runtimes for each acceptance speech (as hosted on CBS’s official YouTube page), beginning our timer with the first word or “Ummmm” spoken into the microphone, listing them in ascending order of length. There’s no explicit pattern to why a speech »
