Toronto Film Review: ‘The Reach’

12 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Judging by Michael Douglas’ presence as producer and star, “The Reach” must have been some sort of passion project for the aging Hollywood icon. Well, as Pascal observed, the heart has its reasons — which, in Douglas’ case, remain impenetrable at the end of “The Reach,” for upwards of 90 minutes, while the audience looks on in quiet disbelief. A hopelessly misguided mashup of Cornel Wilde’s 1955 cult favorite “The Naked Prey” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” with Douglas playing a mutant hybrid of Gordon Gekko and the Glenn Close character from “Fatal Attraction,” this inauspicious English-language debut for promising French helmer Jean-Baptiste Leonetti doesn’t look to reach far from its Toronto premiere (where Lionsgate paid a surprising $2 million for the U.S. rights).

If there were a festival prize for most Chekovoian use of a handgun, it would surely go to “The Reach” for the early scene in which small-town »

Paul Rudd gets moody in San Francisco for first 'Ant-Man' photo

19 August 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oh, look, it's Ant-Man. Actually, more accurately, it's Scott Lang, and it's a lovely foggy San Francisco day, and it's the first picture to prove that, yes, they are indeed in production now on Marvel's "Ant-Man," with Peyton Reed now directing. I didn't realize San Francisco was the setting of the film, or any part of the film. I knew they were gearing up to shoot in Atlanta, so I guess I assumed that's where the film was set, or that they were using Atlanta to double for somewhere else. Right now, though, the production is here in California, making effective moody use of the Bay Area, and I like that first still. Does it answer all my questions and instantly assuage all my fears? Of course not. By now, "Ant-Man" is as well known for its behind-the-scenes turbulence as for anything else, and I have big questions about how »

First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Ajay Devgns film being shot by Titanics cinematographer

20 June 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Ajay Devgn has taken on a new avatar. Having acted in socially relevant films like Zakham and The Legend Of Bhagat Singh and directed a film on Alzeihmers (U Me Aur Hum) Devgn has now become the messiah of globally acceptable meaningful movies. His production Parched set in Rajasthan is being shot by no less than Russel Carpenter. It is being made as two separate films in English and Hindi. The English version would be sent by Devgn to various festivals across the world.

Russell Carpenter was the cinematographer of James Cameron's Titanic. Interestingly the film is co-produced by a very accomplished Indian cinematographer Aseem Bajaj who has shot Devgn's Golmaal films.

Aseem's wife Leena Yadav (who directed Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan in Teen Patti) directs Parched.

"But such realistic cinema should be able to reach a wide audience. Gulaab Gang was so brilliantly marketed. But one of »

Visual Effects Films and Cinematography: A Match Made on a Computer?

27 February 2014 8:03 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

It’s common knowledge that while the Oscar often tout rewarding the best in film, that the notion of what’s best is entirely subjective, depending on the voter. So when trying to make informed Oscar decisions, one has to look past subjective thoughts and search for the trends. One of the major trends that has been appearing has been the success of films with heavy visual effects or 3D in the cinematography category. With Emmanuel Lubezki all but on stage to accept the Oscar in cinematography, it was worth taking a look at the category’s evolution.

There have always been epic films or movies that have had some visual effects that have competed in, and won cinematography Oscars. Yet after Titanic won 11 Oscars, including Cinematography, there seems to have been a wave of films that have relied on visual effects to tell their tale succeeding in this category. »
