Norway’s ‘The King’s Choice’ to Vie for Foreign-Language Oscar Nomination

15 September 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Erik Poppe’s “The King’s Choice” is set to represent Norway in the race for foreign-language-film Oscar nominations.

Written by Norwegian writers Jan Trygve Røyneland and Harald Rosenløw Eeg, “The King’s Choice” is set during the German invasion of Norway in 1940. The historical drama stars Danish actor Jesper Christensen as King Haakon VII, who refused to surrender to the Germans at all costs.

“‘The King’s Choice’ tells of a dramatic event for us as a nation, but also examines a part of history that affected large parts of the world. With its engaging themes and strong cinematic qualities I am sure we have a great candidate in the race,” said Sindre Guldvog, who chairs the Oscar committee and heads the Norwegian Film Institute.

“The King’s Choice” was produced by Finn Gjerdrum and Stein B Kvae. Nordisk Film Distribusjon will handle the release on Sep. 23. Beta Cinema is handling international sales. »

Oscars: Norway picks 'The King's Choice'

8 September 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Erik Poppe’s war drama opens in Norway later this month.

Norway has selected Erik Poppe’s The King’s Choice as its contender for this year’s best foreign language film Oscar race.

The war drama stars Jesper Christensen, Kon-Tiki’s Anders Basmo Christiansen and The CounterfeitersKarl Markovics. It opens in Norway on Sept 23.

Based on true events, The King’s Choice is set in 1940 when a fleet of Nazi warships attacked Oslo and King Haakon of Norway (Christensen) is faced with a choice that will change the nation forever, as a race against time between mediation and warfare ensues.

It was selected from a three-strong shortlist that also included Erik Skjoldbjærg’s The Pyromaniac (Pyromanen) and Rune Denstad Langlo’s Welcome To Norway

Norway have never won in the foreign language Oscar category. Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg’s Kon-Tiki was the last film to be nominated in the category in 2012.

Christoph Waltz will reportedly return for two Bond movies, if Daniel Craig does

3 January 2016 8:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the build up to the release of Spectre, there was a lot of speculation over the future of Daniel Craig as James Bond, with Craig himself indicating that he could be ready to retire his licence to kill, and other reports suggesting that he’d be back for one more outing.

Well, according to “sources” for The Daily Star (so get your pinch of salt at the ready), Christoph Waltz has signed up to reprise the role of Blofeld for two more Bond movies, but will only do so if Craig continues in the role of 007.

“Christoph could make a brilliant ongoing man for Bond to battle like in the old days,” states the tabloid’s source. “But the important clincher of it is that Blofeld can only work with Daniel back in the role to keep continuity.”
