'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 »

Edgar Wright discusses the origin of his new film Baby Driver

21 March 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director Edgar Wright has explained the conception and origins for his new music orientated car thriller Baby Driver.

When the trailer for Edgar Wright’s new film Baby Driver landed, a lot of people became very excited. Coupled with some sterling reviews coming out of SXSW, the hype for the movie was building fast.

Baby Driver, sharing a core premise with that of neon-noir thriller Drive, tells the story of a music dependant getaway driver who falls in love, ultimately having to pull off one last heist. The film stars Ansel Elgort as the peculiarly named Baby, along with an all star cast including Jaime Foxx, John Hamm, and Jon Bernthal.

Wright recently spilled the beans at SXSW on just how the idea for his passion project came to be.

“I had the germ of this movie rattling around in my head for a long time,” said Wright, explaining that 22 years ago, »

SXSW award winners include “Baby Driver” and “The Big Sick”

20 March 2017 6:22 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As the conclusion to South by Southwest (or, as we all know it, SXSW) for 2017 came last week, so too came some awards, much like at any number of film festivals. Some of the top prizes went to movies like Baby Driver, The Big Sick, Dealt, The Light of the Moon, and Mr. Roosevelt, along with Judd Apatow’s surprise music documentary May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers. This isn’t the type of event where a prize can create Academy Award buzz, partly due to the time of the year, but it can create awareness. SXSW wrapped up over the weekend with a screening of Life (which I see in a few days and will then discuss), but these flicks were the highlights, for the most part. Below you will see the SXSW awards in their entirety, but first, a little bit on those two titles »

‘Black-ish,’ ‘Insecure,’ and Others Aren’t Just ‘Black Shows,’ As Nielsen Study Proves

17 March 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As the nation becomes increasingly divided, a small piece of encouraging news comes from, of all places, Nielsen: A new study shows that several programs predominantly African-American casts also boast a large percentage of white viewers.

The new roster of diverse series that have found cross-cultural appeal include ABC’s “Black-ish” and HBO’s “Insecure.” Around 79% of the”Black-ish” audience is non-black, while the “Insecure” audience is 61% non-black.

Black-ish” is a huge hit for ABC: It stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross as parents of a growing family who struggle to create a sense of black identity for their kids while living in a wealthy, predominantly white neighborhood. “Insecure,” created by Issa Rae and inspired by her web series “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl,” is about a young African-American woman in Los Angeles, her friendships, and how it’s sometimes hard to make the right decisions.
