Churchill will attempt to chronicle the struggle of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) as […]

New Us Trailer for 'Churchill' Movie Featuring Brian Cox as Churchill

5 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Try acting like a hero, Winston, and then maybe people will believe that you are one." Cohen Media Group has debuted a new Us trailer for one of the other Winston Churchill movies in the works. This one is called simply Churchill, from Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky. Brian Cox stars as Churchill in the film, which examines a narrow frame of time in 1944 around D-Day and the decisions he was burdened with. The cast includes John Slattery, Miranda Richardson, Ella Purnell, James Purefoy, Richard Durden, and Julian Wadham. This is a very powerful trailer, with a number of strikingly bold shots of Churchill. There's great cinematography, a moving score, it seems like this might actually be worth watching when it opens. We're not sure when the other Churchill film will arrive, but this one hits theaters this June. Here's the new official Us trailer (+ poster) for Jonathan Teplitzky's Churchill, »

22 April 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Phil Hunt’s London-based film-financing house Head Gear Films, which launched 15 years ago, has been ramping up its dealmaking activity in recent years. The company provided funding for 55 movies last year, up from five in 2012. Movies backed have included Johnny Depp starrer “Black Mass,” “Trespass Against Us,” starring Michael Fassbender, and John Michael McDonagh’s “War on Everyone,” starring Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena. Hunt tells Variety about how he balances his punk-rock ethos with a careful assessment of the risks inherent in the independent film business.

Hunt, who also co-heads 10-year-old sales company Bankside Films, started out as a photographer in the advertising business in the early 1990s. A punk rocker and Clash devotee at heart, he started to shoot music videos for bands like Big Audio Dynamite, as well as corporate films. From there he pogoed into producing micro-budgeted feature films, starting 20 years ago with “Fast Food,” starring Gerard Butler. »

Churchill follows Britain’s iconic Prime Minister Winston Churchill in the days before the infamous D-Day landings in June 1944.  As allied forces stand on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe, they await Churchill’s decision on whether the invasion will actually move ahead. Fearful of repeating his mistakes from World War I on the beaches of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with fulfilling historical greatness, Churchill is also faced with constant criticism from his political opponents; General Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery. Only the unflinching support of Churchill’s brilliant, unflappable wife Clementine can halt »

‘Her’: Modern Love, Ancient Wisdom

12 April 2017 10:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What Eastern philosophy says about Spike Jonze’s sci-fi romance.Warner Bros. / Wikipedia

When you love someone, what is it that you love? This may sound obvious bordering on pedantic, but not so fast. Is it their body? (Too carnal.) Their personality? (Too ephemeral.) The way they make you feel? (A bit selfish, perhaps.) The more old-fashioned among you might insist that it’s their soul — but this amounts to saying you can’t put your finger on it. Love is a paradox, at least as we tend to imagine it. How can we love someone when they, and we, are always changing? For all its futuristic sci-fi trappings, Spike Jonze’s 2013 masterpiece, Her, is really about this question. As the filmmaker ceaselessly insisted to critics bent on probing for technology commentary, “it’s not about software… it’s a love story.”

Of course, it isn’t an ordinary love story: Her chronicles the romance between Theodore »

Why Billionaire Charles Cohen Believes He Can Save the Riskiest Indie Films

11 April 2017 11:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In the annals of rich men who look to Hollywood to build a secondary empire, real estate billionaire Charles S. Cohen (Forbes net worth: $2.2 billion) is their Don Quixote. His Cohen Media Group is staking its claim in spaces renowned for their allergies to profit: He’s restoring classic films, releasing foreign-language titles, and moving into specialty exhibition.

One Oscar campaigner calls Cohen’s taste “older middle-of-the-road arthouse,” and that’s exactly the audience he wants. Three of Cohen’s French imports — “Outside the Law” (2010), “Timbuktu” (2014) and “Mustang” (2015) — received foreign-language Academy Award nominations. This year, Cohen (with partner Amazon Studios) took Iranian Cannes-prize-winner Asghar Farhadi’s “The Salesman” all the way to the Oscar, much to the chagrin of established competitors Sony Pictures Classics (“Toni Erdmann”) and Music Box (“A Man Called Ove”).

Why Are There So Many British War Films Being Made?

9 April 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the rise in British World War II movies…

This week brought the news that Ridley Scott would be directing a film set during the Battle of Britain. It’s a surprise he hasn’t done it before; he was born two years before war was declared and his father was a career officer in the British Army; he lived it, rather than just having absorbed it through books and films after the fact.

The film joins two other films coming soon that tell of the British experience during the Second World War, Their Finest, a fun romantic dramedy starring the luminous Gemma Arterton and set in the British film industry of the time and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk . 2017 will also see both Brian Cox and Gary Oldman play Winston Churchill in different projects. It feels like, after a couple of decades where they were few and far between, »

‘The Autopsy of Jane Doe’ Review

3 April 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Brian Cox, Emile Hirsch, Olwen Kelly, Ophelia Lovibond | Written by Ian Goldberg, Richard Naing | Directed by Andre Ovredal

Grantham, Virginia. A house-full of grisly murders. The body of an unidentified female is found half-buried in the basement.

Down the road is the Tilden Mortuary and Crematorium, a family business that has been running for almost a century. Inside, Tommy (Brian Cox) and Austin (Emile Hirsch), father and son, go about their autopsy work with rock music blaring, entirely comfortable in their mentor and apprentice roles.

Except Austin doesn’t see his future in this business. He and his girlfriend (Ophelia Lovibond) plan on moving away, breaking the Tilden family chain. But then, in classic “final job” style, the Jane Doe from the murder house is delivered to the autopsy table.

The sheriff needs a cause of death, so Tommy and Austin have one night to unveil the mystery. The »

The Autopsy of Jane Doe review – brisk but dour Scandi mortuary creepshow

30 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Troll Hunter director André Øvredal’s English-language debut is functional VOD filler, but chilly with it

No cutting around the take-it-or-leave-it conceit of Troll Hunter director André Øvredal’s English-language debut: for 90 minutes, this is a woman’s naked corpse being poked and prodded by two men. Granted, Brian Cox and Emile Hirsch – as father-and-son morticians – display vital flickers of humanity in parsing the clues secreted in their charge’s cavities. But they’re helpless once this fleshy Pandora’s box is opened and the matter of whether the film is operating in a procedural or supernatural key is decisively resolved. The second half is merely morbid runaround, punctuating its soundtrack crashes with self-justifying footnotes on historical misogyny. Øvredal keeps matters brisk, while carrying over a very Scandinavian air. It’s functional VOD filler, but chilly with it.

HeyUGuys on Set… Brian Cox discusses The Autopsy of Jane Doe

29 March 2017 5:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

It was really only when visiting the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Leavesden where the meticulous attention to detail that goes into creating cinematic worlds for audiences to inhibit became so apparent, and so striking. Naturally, given the immense budget on the popular franchise it didn’t seem that surprising – but the same can’t applied to André Ovredal’s The Autopsy of Jane Doe – made on a mere fraction of the resources, and yet seemed equally as attentive.

Shot in London, we were fortunate enough to be invited onto the set of this indelible horror flick, which chronicles the lives of coroner Tommy Tilden (Brian Cox) and his son Austin (Emile Hirsch) as they encounter a mysterious corpse that leads them down a surrealistic, dark avenue, set, for the most part, in the mortuary in the basement of their abode. What initially caught our eye was »

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe set report

Ryan Lambie Mar 28, 2017

Creepy sets, gore, a sweary Emile Hirsch and lots of gallows humour. We visited the set of indie horror, The Autopsy Of Jane Doe...

Nb: The following contains some saucy language and discussions that some may consider Not Safe For Work.

Half an hour out east on the Hammersmith & City Line, across a busy dual carriage way, just down from a branch of Tesco’s and tucked away in an old warehouse, about 200 people are making a horror film.

The warehouse interior is now, thanks to the ingenuity of production designer Matt Gant and a few dozen set builders, a basement mortuary in Virginia. There are long corridors. Low lighting that picks out the Victorian wallpaper but leaves corners shrouded in deep shadow. A junk-strewn room houses a man-sized furnace, something the production designer jokingly refers to as “the pizza oven”, but is actually a place where »

Watch: Brian Cox as Churchill in First Trailer for New 'Churchill' Film

25 March 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We must launch now." Lionsgate UK has released a trailer for the new Winston Churchill film titled simply Churchill, from Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky. Brian Cox stars as Churchill in the film, joining a shortlist of talented actors who have played the prominent politician - including Albert Finney, Richard Burton, David Ryall, and Brendan Gleeson. There's also another totally different Churchill film due out this year, starring Gary Oldman. This particular film is described as a "ticking-clock thriller following Winston Churchill in the 24 hours before D-Day." The cast includes John Slattery, Miranda Richardson, Ella Purnell, James Purefoy, Richard Durden, and Julian Wadham. This definitely looks intriguing, with some strong moments, but I'm much more interested in seeing Gary Oldman's film more. Take a look below. Here's the first official trailer for Jonathan Teplitzky's Churchill film, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a massive »

'British films need more support', says Lionsgate UK CEO

24 March 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Star Wars is not a British movie, says Lionsgate UK boss, who is concerned about Brexit impact and blockbuster saturation.

The British independent film sector needs more help from public and private investors, Lionsgate UK & Europe CEO Zygi Kamasa has said in an interview today [Mar 24].

Speaking on BBC radio, the La La Land distributor, known for backing successful UK films including Saoirse Ronan drama Brooklyn and Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood, renewed calls first made to Screen for adjustments to the UK tax credit and cinema ticket prices to favour British films.

“There are ways the government can look at improving and enhancing investment in British productions,” he said.

“I’m not sure the one size fits all tax credit is the best system. Culturally it is very important that British independent films are helped in a greater way. That extra revenue [from a revised tax credit] could help it.”

“The tax credit is great. I wouldn’t want to deter film companies »
