Standing Up to Trump: 5 Tips From a Film Community Ready For a Fight

16 December 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Members of the film community are coming out of the woodwork to band together and push back on the repression that is anticipated to come out of the incoming Trump administration. From documentarians reaffirming their commitment to exposing hidden truths to narrative filmmakers pledging to combat racism with their work, many are planning a strong response to the 2016 presidential election.

5 Exciting Films in the 2017 Berlin Film Festival Competition Lineup

15 December 2016 1:47 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comfortably wedged between Sundance and Cannes in every respect, the Berlin Film Festival is a massive orgy of world cinema that’s come to be known for the unrivaled variety of its programming. Best illustrated by its adventurous sidebars, the festival’s exotic tastes — unusual for such a glitzy and commercialized culture event — often spill over into the more prestigious Competition section, which has served as a launching pad for several of the current decade’s very best films (many of which, like Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Things to Come,” might have slipped through the cracks if not for such a prominent spotlight). And, in stark contrast to Cannes, the festival’s recent winners have been as worthy as they have been unexpected, ranging from a frigid Chinese neo-noir (“Black Coal, Thin Ice”) to a crushingly intimate documentary about Europe’s ongoing migrant crisis (“Fire at Sea”).

Berlinale 2017 First Wave: New Films by Sally Potter & Aki Kaurismäki Among Highlights

15 December 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Berlinale, where many European and world titles begin their festival journey of the calendar year, has announced its first competition titles and a few from the Berlinale Special section. New films by some of the top European auteurs will featured, including Sally Potter, Aki Kaurismäki, and Agnieska Holland. According to IMDb, Potter's film The Party is "a comedy wrapped around a tragedy. It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor." This certainly gives the impression of a classic British murder-mystery. But with Potter at the helm, and stars such as Kristen Scott Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Bruno Ganz, and Cherry Jones, I think we can expect something rather radical from one of the UK's great directors. Other European...

Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling Immortalized on Hollywood Boulevard

7 December 2016 11:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood is strewn with the phantom doubles of films that might have been if early casting instincts had been followed. Over time, these ghosts bear less and less resemblance to their existing incarnations, to the point that they barely seem conceivable. (What would “Casablanca” have looked, or sounded, or felt like with Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan instead of Humphrey Bogart and Igrid Bergman?) “La La Land” is but a few months old in the minds of those who saw it first, but already it’s impossible to imagine with the once-mooted Miles Teller and Emma Watson in place of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone: Teller and Watson are adept, attractive performers, certainly, but Damien Chazelle’s modern-vintage musical moves entirely to the rhythm of the star duo it got.

The duo are now immortalized at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

Both accomplished, independent leading players in their own right, »

Jumanji adds new face to its cast

6 December 2016 8:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Harley Dec 7, 2016

Tim Matheson joins Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black in the new Jumanji movie...

Jumanji is adding another player to its game, as Deadline has reported that Tim Matheson has joined the cast of Sony’s sequel/reboot.

The Leave It To Beaver, Animal House, Johnny Quest, The West Wing and most recently, Killing Reagan star will be playing Old Man Vreeke (perhaps a villainous role akin to the part Johnathan Hyde played in the original?) in the new film alongside Dwayne Johnson.

Director Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) has revealed that the new Jumanji will continue the events from the first film and will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character. The original Jumanji was an adaptation of the 1981 children's book of the same name by Chris Van Allsburg. It was directed by Joe Johnston and also starred Bonnie Hunt, »

Jumanji 2 Fight Photos Revealed by Dwayne Johnson

4 December 2016 12:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since production has started on the Jumanji remake, star Dwayne Johnson has been sharing numerous photos from the set. Today the actor shared even more photos featuring a big fight scene as filming continues. We don't have a whole lot of context for this scene, but the actor had this to sy on Instagram earlier today.

"This bad man is an asshole and I must throw him thru this cement pillar. My hand strength is like vice grips... he has no choice. For the record, this man is roughly 6'8 and well over 350lbs - he's massive and mean - I must run away now to preserve my health. #OnSet #MySaturdayNights #KnuckleUp" #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji" Doin' dirt with my stunt brothers tonight. Rehearsals before the bodies hit the floor... I'm searching for a good spot to break his leg with one shot. This scene also looks like what happens when »

Afm: First look at Isabel Coixet's 'The Bookshop'

4 November 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy and Patricia Clarkson star in the adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel.

Screen can reveal the first look at Isabel Coixet’s drama The Bookshop starring Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy and Patricia Clarkson.

Principal photography has wrapped in the UK on the drama, which is being sold at the Afm by Celsius Entertainment.

Set in England in 1959 in a small East Anglian town, the film follows Florence Green who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop.

By exposing the locals to cutting-edge literature of the day such as Nabokov’s Lolita and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, she sows the seeds of an awakening in the conservative town.

The film is based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s Booker Prize shortlisted novel.

Coixet commented: “The Bookshop is the story of a woman whose light, innocence and perseverance pose a threat to the powers that be in a small town plagued »

Werner Herzog’s Greatest Hits Get the Supercut Treatment, Thanks to Netflix — Watch

24 October 2016 10:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“It is a fire that wants to burst forth and it could not care less about what we are doing up here!” Thus lauded filmmaker and seemingly unstoppable documentarian Werner Herzog explains the themes and ideas of his latest feature, the volcano-centric documentary “Into the Inferno,” a swirling mass of fire and destruction that only someone like Herzog could give us.

The film recently made its debut on the festival circuit, hitting up Telluride, Toronto and Rome in short order, and now it’s poised to rocket straight into your eyeballs, thanks to a steaming deal with Netflix that will bring the majestic power of both volcanoes and Herzog — together, at last, finally — right into your own home. No place is safe. But, then again, isn’t that exactly what Herzog has been telling us all these years?
