Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Signs Distribution Deals for Japan, France, Italy

24 May 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures has unveiled new distribution partnerships for Japan, France, and Italy in multi-year deals that will begin this summer with Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit.”

The film, Annapurna’s inaugural release under its new marketing and distribution arm, will launch in the U.S. on Aug. 4. Longride and Mars will be handling the Japanese and French markets, respectively, with Eagle Pictures and Leone Film Group teaming for Italy.

Each of the new deals will cover both theatrical and home entertainment for “Detroit” as well as all subsequent Annapurna film titles in the respective territories.

Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan! The Music Legend’s 10 Best Film Performances

24 May 2017 10:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Bob Dylan turns 76 today and we’re ranking Dylan’s 10 best film performances, dating back half a century to 1967. The key word is “performances,” which encompass acting work, concert films, and documentaries. It’s often hard to know when Dylan is acting and when he’s being himself (whoever that is), but whenever the iconic singer-songwriter appears on film, one thing’s for certain: you’re watching a performance.

Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Look Back’ Gets Deluxe Treatment With New Blu-ray Set

For this reason, we’re lumping everything together, ranking the films based on the depth and richness of performance. It was hard not to include the televised 1965 press conference in San Francisco, which sees Dylan effortlessly (and hilariously) shoot down reporters’ attempts to have him label himself, but we limited this list to feature-length films. Don’t look for Todd Haynes’ “I’m Not There” or any »

This week’s graduation ceremonies have been a study in contrasts. Betsy DeVos, the Secretary of Education who ascended to her current post via questionable means, was met with boos and turned backs at Bethune-Cookman; Will Ferrell serenaded USC grads with a rendition of “I Will Always Love You.” As you might imagine, he received a warmer reception than DeVos.

Wes Anderson Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

1 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Let’s get this out of the way right from the top: Wes Anderson has never made a bad movie, and — in all likelihood — he probably never will. He’s too particular, too immaculate, too in command of his craft. Of course, the fact that he has always been so sure of himself only makes it more tempting to chart the progress of his career and to measure his films against each other. Or maybe it’s just fun because there are still only eight of them, and everyone seems to have their own favorite. Who could say?
