Watch: Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin & Benicio Del Toro Team Up In First Clip For Denis Villeneueve’s 'Sicario'

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You could sort of say we’re on his jock and we wouldn’t argue much. This is because French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has been non-stop killing it in recent years and he’s the kind of filmmaker we love because he uses genre as a Trojan Horse to explore the heart and soul of mankind. He’s a thinking man’s filmmaker and it shows in his work. The searing drama “Incendies” earned him a Foreign Language Academy Award nomination, “Enemy” with Jake Gyllenhaal was a nightmarish existentialist thriller, and “Prisoners” with Gyllenhaal again and Hugh Jackman was a bruising crime procedural. Since then, everyone wants to work with Villeneuve cause they’ve also seen the work and noticed he’s the real deal. Read More: Roger Deakins To Shoot Denis Villeneuve's 'Blade Runner' Sequel. He’s already bagged the coveted director’s chair for the “Blade Runner” sequel, »

Brisk business not dampened by Netflix effect

19 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Glorious weather on the Croisette played its part in driving strong trade and casting a warm glow over the market to temper fearful talk of the Netflix effect, for now at least.

Yet the streaming giant was never far from people’s lips. The keynote talk by Ted Sarandos dominated the dialogue when people were not chewing over the festival’s strict dress footwear policy, the arrival of well-heeled new financiers and a flurry of spectacular theatrical deals.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features’ $20m worldwide buy on Nocturnal Animals starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams served up the major buy of Cannes, ensuring FilmNation echoed its success with Story Of Your Life in 2014. CAA also represented Us rights.

Open Road’s $4m deal for Bleed For This was one of the more notable Us buys alongside Spc’s move on Truth, Our Little Sister and Son Of Saul, Lionsgate’s acquisition of A Hologram For The King »

Titans Brawl In Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Concept Art

19 May 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Avengers: Age of Ultron already in theaters, comic-book aficionados’ eyes are turning even more completely to next year’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the second installment in Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ cinematic universe. And though the film is still so far off that any actual footage has been sparse, promo art is in steady supply. Last night, superhero scoopster Umberto Gonzalez, settling into his solo site Heroic Hollywood, unveiled two new pieces of concept art, depicting the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel actually duking it out.

The pieces are enjoyable on artistic grounds alone, but more savvy comic-book fans may also notice that both shots evoke iconic pieces by David Finch and Jim Lee. Of course, they’ve been slightly tweaked to show Batman’s armor and the cinematic Superman logo, but the inspiration is still clear.

Some amazing new promo art for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has surfaced tonight, and it finally shows the two iconic heroes coming to blows.

Cannes: U.S., China Drives Cannes Biz

18 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Five years ago, the business at Cannes was powered by movies selling out worldwide, and U.S. distribution sales were something of a sideshow.

Now it’s the U.S. and China driving the business forward, with 2015 Cannes fueled by U.S. and China, both galvanized by new players. Europe remains depressed by eroding ancillary markets.

Trouble is, while the U.S. is helping to make up for the weakness in the market, its growth doesn’t cover all of Europe’s slack, said Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson.

But some big late market additions, new players and one spectacular deal added brio to an far more upbeat market.

“Though there were no tentpoles, in terms of volume, this was a good hectic market, with big movies and big companies’ slates pretty well selling out,” said Ivan Boeing at Imagem.

More big projects could still come onto the market, he added.

The biggest deal in the market was the $acquisition of world rights for a reported $20 million to Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals” by Focus from CAA/FilmNation. Drama is a relationship mystery thriller with Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams. »

Focus Features has landed worldwide rights to Tom Ford’s upcoming thriller "Nocturnal Animals," the fashion icon turned filmmaker's first film since 2009 Oscar nominee "A Single Man." Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are set to star. Based on Austin Wright's 1993 book "Tony and Susan," Tom Ford's script follows a woman, Susan, whose ex-husband sends her a book manuscript containing two stories: the title tale "Nocturnal Animals" about a man whose family vacation takes fatal turns, and the story of Susan as she recollects her first marriage and confronts her spiritual demons. Writer/director/producer Ford, who presented his vision to Cannes buyers this month, is set to begin production on the postmodern neo-noir this Fall, through his production company Fade to Black. He has said he only needs about six weeks to shoot. George Clooney will produce alongside Smokehouse Pictures partner Grant Heslov. Focus will distribute "Nocturnal »

Cannes: Focus Features Wakes To $20 Million Deal For Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’

17 May 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features has won the Cannes bidding battle for fashion designer Tom Ford’s second movie as a director, “Nocturnal Animals,” starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Backed by its parent studio Universal Pictures, Focus is understood to have taken worldwide rights in a deal costing it more than $20 million.

That price tag — and a p&a commitment in excess of $10 million — makes it by far the biggest deal seen during the Cannes festival so far. And it comes following a highly unusual pitch given by Ford on Thursday at the festival.

Ford said he wanted maximum creative control and that he was prepared to self-finance the production in order to preserve that. However, after a welter of offers, he appears to have had a change of heart and settled with a supportive studio deal.

“Tom’s vision for his film is unique and inspiring and something that global audiences will be thrilled by, »
