Simon West to crowd-fund action-comedy Salty

2 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Expendables 2 director talks crowd-funding, a Con Air sequel and Tolkien & Lewis.

Con Air and The Expendables 2 director Simon West is turning to crowd-funding platform SyndicateRoom to help finance his upcoming action-comedy Salty.

In an unusual move for such a high profile film, UK investors are being invited to own a stake in the film by buying shares in company Salty Film Ltd via the equity crowd-funding platform SyndicateRoom.

According to West’s Simon West Productions, angel investors have already bought £450,000 of equity in Salty Films, with remaining shares available at a minimum of £1,000.

The production is aiming for crowd-funding investors to make up £1.8m of the film’s projected £5.9m ($10m) budget, with the remainder expected from pre-sales and tax credits.

West’s production outfit is in advanced negotiations with a Us sales outfit for the project, which the director hopes to shoot in 2015.

Salty follows a reformed sex-addict muso who is persuaded to take a »

The Expendables 3 Leaks Online, More Than 189,000 Downloads in 24 Hours

25 July 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In what is sure to be the most notorious case of piracy since the early leak of X-Men Origins: Wolverine five years ago, the Sylvester Stallone-led action blockbuster The Expendables 3 has leaked online, weeks before its release and even its world premiere here in London at the start of next month.

The sequel started appearing on torrent sites on Wednesday, with downloads starting to spike yesterday, and piracy analytics estimate that the film had been downloaded 189,052 times as of 6pm Et Thursday, within twenty-four hours of it landing online.

Whereas Origins was a rough copy of the movie, it’s believed that The Expendables 3 is a DVD-quality copy, which is sure to fuel the rate at which it gets downloaded in the coming weeks even further as fans of the franchise clamour to torrent sites to get an early viewing.

'Expendables 3' leaks online 3 weeks before theatrical release

25 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A copy of The Expendables 3—the latest in a series of all-star action movies starring major Hollywood figures like Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Jason Statham, among others—leaked online Wednesday on various BitTorrent piracy websites. The film has been downloaded nearly 200,000 times since it leaked, according to Variety.

Movies frequently leak online, but the Expendables 3 scenario is a big deal for two reasons. First of all, it leaked before the movie hit theaters—three weeks before its scheduled premiere, to be exact. And secondly, the quality of the leak is unusually high. The earliest movie leaks are usually “cam” copies, »

‘Expendables 3’ Leaks Online, Pirated Copy Downloaded 189,000 Times in 24 Hours

25 July 2014 4:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A DVD-quality copy of actioner “The Expendables 3,” starring Sylvester Stallone, has been downloaded via piracy sites more than 189,000 times over a 24-hour period — three weeks ahead of the U.S. premiere.

The leak of the film on the Internet ahead of its theatrical debut, an unusually rare occurrence, could dampen box office for “Expendables 3.” It’s also worth noting that the target demo for the movie is young males, who are the biggest users of illegal file-sharing services.

With 21 days left to go before the Aug. 15 premiere, the number of illegal downloads of “Expendables 3″ will certainly soar into the millions.

Lionsgate, which is distributing the movie, declined to comment. The original source of the pirated copy is unclear; user comments posted on piracy websites indicate the rip is genuine.

Pirated copies of “Expendables 3″ began cropping up on torrent-sharing sites Wednesday and downloads started to spike Thursday, according to data provided by piracy-analytics firm Excipio. »

The Expendables 3 leaks online just weeks before release

25 July 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning the internet is abuzz with word that a high-quality version of the upcoming blockbuster action sequel The Expendables 3 has somehow leaked online. While we here at Flickering Myth don’t condone piracy or illegal downloading in any way, this is now very much in the public domain, and is perhaps the most high profile leak to happen over recent years.

With Comic-Con in full swing in the Us, the news that a major film, which is being represented at the festival, has leaked online before its world bow will be a massive blow to distributors Lionsgate, who were hoping this would be a decent moneymaker for them. Whether it affects the film’s cinema release and its box office taking remains to be seen.

There hasn’t been this high-profile a film leak since X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, when a work-print of the film, which was finished bar some missing CGI, »

Luc Besson Puts His EuropaCorp to the Test With ‘Lucy’

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

The son of scuba-diving instructors, Luc Besson came of age exploring the depths of the ocean floor and inventing stories out of the debris he would find along the shore. Some 50 years later, he is still playing with rocks in the sand — only now his shoreline is the river Seine and his castle a 667,000-square-foot film studio called Cite du Cinema (literally Cinema City). Built from the shell of a 1930s thermal power plant in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis, the sprawling complex — which includes nine soundstages, a 500-seat auditorium and a full-service restaurant — is headquarters for Besson’s prolific production and distribution outfit, EuropaCorp, plus a host of affiliated vendors and two film schools.

On a recent Friday afternoon, despite a bank-holiday weekend in France, Cite du Cinema was a hive of activity as editors, sound mixers and visual effects artists readied two new EuropaCorp productions for their »

Can Luc Besson score another French-import blockbuster with 'Lucy'? (Updated)

24 July 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.

Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

Jason Statham Made Quite the Splash As a Competitive Diver —Take a Look!

23 July 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who knew The Transporter was also quite the diver? New footage released from the BBC Wednesday shows actor Jason Statham participating in the 1990 Commonwealth Games in England as, you guessed it, a competitive diver. Wearing only a speedo (as any professional male diver does), Statham competes in the one-meter and three-meter springboard. He also challenges himself to the extra tall 10-meter platform. So how did he fare in the competition? Unfortunately, he made quiet the splash for all the wrong reasons. After one jump, Statham practically face-planted into the pool. The judges took note and placed him in eighth place, his best score from all three events. With much thought and »

These Guys Are Nuts: 'The Expendables 3' Gets a Fun New Featurette

23 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the colorful pop art posters featuring the whole cast of The Expendables 3, we get to see them in action and on the set of the action sequel. There's some cool new footage, including a great joke from Wesley Snipes, and also some brief talking heads from the likes of Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone and more. Some of these bits should actually be in the trailers, showing that the film is very self-aware, especially with jokes about how kicking down the door with guns blazing would be cool if it was 1995 (which is what you could say about this whole series). If this is the end for Expendables, hopefully it's a big blast. Here's the featurette for Patrick Hughes' The Expendables 3 from Lionsgate: The Expendables 3 is directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) and written by Sylvester Stallone and Olympus Has Fallen scribes Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. »

10 Presents Celebrities Might Be Getting Prince George For His Birthday

Blue Ivy Carter has a solid gold rocking horse. North West has a wardrobe any adult woman would envy. That’s the life of a celebrity baby — a King’s ransom worth of expensive gifts come birthday time. Sitting in the lap of luxury, these tiny tots have it all. So as we wish a very happy first birthday to little Prince George of Cambridge, we’re speculating the treasure troves of gifts he might be receiving from his high-flying celebrity pals to celebrate his first year on planet Earth.

It’s obviously only the best Kate and William’s son. Perhaps he’ll receive a mini James Bond suit from Daniel Craig, or a diamond encrusted pacifier from Kate Moss? Considering his family’s connections, Elton John could write him a song, or maybe he’ll get one of those mini electric cars for kids — a Beamer or a Merc, »
