20 June 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Warcraft director Duncan Jones has said that he hopes his next project - the futuristic sci-fi Mute [pictured] which has been produced and financed by Netflix - will get a theatrical run, but has also admitted that the streaming giant is free to distribute “how they see fit”.

Speaking at Mark Kermode’s Live in 3D show at London’s BFI last night (June 19) after a screening of Warcraft, Jones said: “I envisioned the film would be released in cinemas, but I can’t complain as I have been trying to make this film for 15 years [before his 2009 film Moon].”

“For Netflix to get the film off the ground is a wonderful thing,” he added about the online giant which made waves at Cannes last month.

'British films need more support', says Lionsgate UK CEO

24 March 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Star Wars is not a British movie, says Lionsgate UK boss, who is concerned about Brexit impact and blockbuster saturation.

The British independent film sector needs more help from public and private investors, Lionsgate UK & Europe CEO Zygi Kamasa has said in an interview today [Mar 24].

Speaking on BBC radio, the La La Land distributor, known for backing successful UK films including Saoirse Ronan drama Brooklyn and Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood, renewed calls first made to Screen for adjustments to the UK tax credit and cinema ticket prices to favour British films.

“There are ways the government can look at improving and enhancing investment in British productions,” he said.

“I’m not sure the one size fits all tax credit is the best system. Culturally it is very important that British independent films are helped in a greater way. That extra revenue [from a revised tax credit] could help it.”

“The tax credit is great. I wouldn’t want to deter film companies »

13 non-superhero graphic novels you may have missed

13 March 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Megan McGill Mar 20, 2017

Fancy some graphic novels that don't involve a Marvel or DC hero? Try some of these...

You don't need to tell comic book and graphic novel fans that there's a whole lot more than superheroes out there. However, if you're just starting to dabble, might we make a few recommendations...?

Sweet Tooth

Put Mad Max in some plaid, make him feel a little Wolverine circa X-Men: Origins, add some creepy Wes Anderson stop-motion animals, and you’ll get Sweet Tooth, the post-apocalyptic story of human-animal hybrids in rural Nebraska. You may be familiar with Jeff Lemire’s other work on Animal Man and Green Lantern, or his acclaimed graphic novel Essex County, but for me, Sweet Tooth really is something special. Running from 2009 to 2013, this forty-issue arc centres around Gus, a young boy with antlers living with his strictly religious father in a world infected by some sort of plague. »

Cobie Smulders-Noel Clarke comedy secures world sales deal

31 January 2017 2:04 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: First look image of Unstoppable Entertainment comedy about a 90s Britpop singer.

London-based sales outfit Amp International has boarded world sales on UK comedy Songbird, starring Cobie Smulders (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back), Noel Clarke, Jessica Hynes (Bridget Jones’ Baby), Griffin Dunne (After Hours) and Emily Atack (The Inbetweeners).

Currently in post-production, the film follows the lead singer of a 90s Britpop band whose star has fallen considerably since her glory days.

When on a drunken night out she accidentally enrolls at a university she is shocked to discover that her fellow students have no idea who she is and are far more into yoga and kale smoothies than wild parties.

Songbird was written and directed by Jamie Adams (Black Mountain Poets) and is produced by Jason Maza and Noel Clarke of Unstoppable Entertainment (Brotherhood) and Maggie Monteith (Searching For Sugar Man) of Dignity Film Finance.

Louisa Mellor Apr 7, 2017

Filming is well underway on the fourth series of the brilliant Inside No. 9. Here's who to expect among the guest cast...

Series one and two of Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith's consistently inventive, continually surprising anthology strand Inside No. 9 have recently landed on Netflix UK, which will hopefully bring it to the attention of those who didn't catch it on the first run. If you're among them, then run, don't walk, etc. It's simply one of the best shows around.

See related  The X-Files: an episode roadmap for beginners The X-Files: Fox wants more episodes in 2018 Dirk Maggs Interview: Hitchhiker's, Douglas Adams, Superman, Batman, & more...
