Footloose ‘Hobbit’ Grows; ‘Mockingjay’ Tempers ‘Fire': Intl Box Office Final

15 December 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

2Nd Update, Monday 4:39 Pm Pt: Actuals are in from the international weekend with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies climbing $4.6M above projections. The 1st frame cume is now $122.2M with 3D results accounting for 71% of the box office total. Increases in key overseas markets have been updated below. Expanded Hobbit holiday cheer will flow next weekend in North America, Italy, Spain and Korea. On the flipside, Exodus: Gods And Kings came in slightly lower in its cume, which is $18.2M versus an estimated $18.8M on Sunday. However, the biblical epic was up over projections in some Asian markets where audiences have been drawn by the scale and spectacle. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 stayed just about on par with Sunday’s estimates, but has now passed the lifetime of Catching Fire in 32 territories including Italy and Brazil — and could imminently pass Cf‘s Latin American take entirely. »

Gun Violence Targeted In New Documentary From ‘The Reader’ Helmer Stephen Daldry

10 December 2014 3:26 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

What They Left Behind, a new documentary film chronicling the stories of three children whose lives were lost to gun violence, will premiere December 10 at the Helen Mills Theater in New York.

The film, directed by Tarik Karam and executive produced by Stephen Daldry, the Oscar-nominated director of The Reader, The Hours and Billy Elliot, is being released four days in advance of the second anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings. Seven-year-old Mark Barden, who was one of the 20 children murdered at Sandy Hook that day, is one of the three children featured in the film. His father, Mark Barden, will be on hand for the premiere. Bill Sherlach, the husband of Mary Sherlach, the Sandy Hook school psychologist who was killed while heroically trying to protect the students, will also be present at the film’s premiere.

Criterion Collection: Safe | Blu-Ray Review

9 December 2014 12:35 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Todd Haynes receives his first entry in the Criterion collection with a beautiful restoration of his landmark 1995 sophomore feature, Safe, the film that launched the status of burgeoning star Julianne Moore. Though initial reactions to the film were perplexing after a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, a growing cult following cemented the film’s reputation as a fascinating example of Haynes’ remarkable control of mise en scene, as well as a deliberately refined AIDs allegory ahead of its time. Recuperated famously as a case study as pertains to practices and definitions of whiteness, it may very well be Haynes’ most invigorating work precisely because of all the avenues of projection its fascinating obliqueness provides.

The narrative is relatively simple, especially as pertains to the work of Haynes, who often prizes experimental, non-linear narratives. A suburban housewife residing in the San Fernando Valley of 1987, Carol White (Julianne Moore) finds herself »

Wicked movie rumoured for 2016?

2 December 2014 4:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A big screen version of the hit stage musical Wicked has been talked about for a number of years now. Stephen Daldry (The Reader, Billy Elliot) has been linked to direct but as yet no other information has been confirmed by Universal; however we may be seeing the movie adaptation a lot sooner than we first anticipated.

FilmDivider are claiming that one of their sources witnessed the Screen Film Summit presentation by Vue Cinemas CEO Tim Richards and during the slide-show Wicked was being hailed as a highlight of the 2016 release calendar.

If this is indeed the case then we should be getting some official clarification from Universal very soon as casting and production would be due to begin early next year.

Wicked is a 2003 Broadway musical – and later hit the West End – based on the 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, which is itself an alternate adaptation of L. Frank Baum »

Wicked movie lining up for 2016 release

1 December 2014 10:23 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The untold story of The Wizard Of Oz's witches might just be heading to cinemas sooner than thought...

It looks like progress is being made on bringing the musical Wicked to the big screen. The last we'd heard, Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) was in talks to direct the film, and producer Marc Platt said just the other week that "the movie of Wicked is still a number of years down the line".

It may not be that many years, though. The untold story of the Witches Of Oz (as the musical is described) could in fact be gearing up for release in 2016, according to a new report at Film Divider. It revealed that one of the presentations at yesterday's Screen Film Summit noted that Wicked was set to be one of the highlights "of 2016's release calendar". So a bit sooner than had been though.

That would suggest that »

‘Mockingjay’, ‘Interstellar’, ‘Penguins’ Lead Frame; ‘Paddington’ Charms UK: Int’l B.O.

30 November 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Despite Mockingjay and Interstellar muscle, the current frame was down more than 30% on last week, but very close to last year’s comparable weekend for the Top 10 studio titles. Indies and local films that factored big this session included Women Who Flirt ($11.5M) and Rise Of The Legend ($5.5M, cume $18M) in China; along with Paddington‘s $8.5M bear hug to the UK, Mexico and Peru.

Last year this time, Catching Fire was the big game globally, while Gravity, much like Warner Bros’ Interstellar this year, was still exerting force in China in the similar period. Also last year, Frozen was just getting its skates on for what would go on to be a record breaking run.

Next week, Korea will be the among the first overseas territories where Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings heads into action along with Mexico, Australia, Argentina, Spain and »

A new year means new shows! Here are 11 we cannot wait to see in 2015. “Fish in the Dark”  (Opens March 5)To say Larry David’s Broadway debut is highly anticipated would be putting it mildly.

Leviathan Wins Best Film At CamerImage

25 November 2014 1:15 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Poland's CamerImage, a film festival that runs each year in Bydgoszcz, is dedicated in large measure to celebrating the art of cinematography. With that craft in mind, it's perhaps no surprise that LeviathanAndrey Zvyagintsev's austere and striking parable of modern Russia, took home this year's big prize: the Golden Frog. Its Dp, Mikhail Krichman, also won for his cinematography. The film is Russia’s official bid for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. CamerImage 22 officially closed on with a lavish awards ceremony in the main theater of Bydgoszcz’s imposing Opera Nova opera house. Golden Frogs were bestowed on The Black Stallion and The Natural's Caleb Deschanel, who picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award (click here to see Breaking Bad Dp Michael Slovis explain why), The Right Stuff's Philip Kaufman, who won the corresponding award for direction, and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Reader, Trash) for Excellence in Directing. »

Three Oscar Contenders Head to Broadway

18 November 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Several Oscar contenders are heading to New York and the Broadway stage as the Oscar season progresses in Hollywood. With projects on both coasts, these contenders could score both Tony and Oscar nominations during the upcoming awards season.

Director Bob Fosse won two Tony Awards and an Oscar in 1973. The two Tonys were for direction and choreography for Pippin and the Oscar was for directing Cabaret. Director Stephen Daldry won an Oscar for The Reader and a Tony for Billy Elliot the Musical in 2009.

Five actresses have won both awards in the same year: Shirley Booth won a Tony for The Time of the Cuckoo and an Oscar for Come Back, Little Sheba in 1953; Audrey Hepburn won a Tony for Ondine and an Oscar for Roman Holiday in 1954; Ellen Burstyn won a Tony for Same Time, Next Year and an Oscar for Alice Doesn’t »

‘Interstellar’ At $226M Overseas As China, Korea Show Endurance: Intl’ Box Office Final

18 November 2014 4:02 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update, Tuesday, 4:02 Am Pt: A couple of things have happened in the world of international box office since late Sunday night. We now know that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I will not be bowing in China in the 2014 calendar year, and we have a little more insight into why Korea is like the proverbial black hole for Interstellar (in the good sense). Exerting an incredible gravitational pull, Korea has advanced itself as a massive $35.9M play (so far) for Christopher Nolan’s intergalactic epic. Here’s why: There is a very strong and vocal Nolan fanbase in Korea, which has generated astronomical word of mouth in the market. I’m told there were a few midnight screenings the night before the opening on November 6, and online buzz began building immediately. The not-so-spacey elements have also played very well, with the emotional and family sub-plots broadening appeal. Worth »

Stephen Daldry, D.P. Adriano Goldman on Turning Chaos into ‘Trash’

17 November 2014 11:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bydgoszcz, Poland — Stephen Daldry, the director of “Trash,” and the film’s director of photography Adriano Goldman explained how they turned chaos into cinema, during a discussion at Camerimage film festival, where Daldry was given the excellence in directing award.

Daldry explained during the presentation on Sunday that the film, which plays at the fest, is based on a novel by Andy Mulligan, who had drawn on his experiences working in Brazil, India and the Philippines.

“He hadn’t set it in any particular country, so when I started thinking about making it into a film the first place I went to — following in his footsteps — was Brazil,” Daldry said.

This was mostly because of his existing relationship with Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles, who runs production company O2, which later assisted in the production of “Trash,” and Meirelles’ experience of working with non-professional actors on such productions as “City of God. »

Bydgoszcz, Poland – British director Stephen Daldry paid tribute to the cinematographers who he had worked alongside, when he accepted the excellence in directing award at the opening ceremony on Saturday of the 22nd edition of Camerimage, a festival in Poland devoted to the art of cinematography.

“It has been my privilege to work with some extraordinary cinematographers in my career. First of all Brian Tufano, who held my hand and told me what to do and what not to do on ‘Billy Elliot,’” Daldry said.

He went on to list the “wonderful” Seamus McGarvey on “The Hours,” and the “legendary” Chris Menges on “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.”

Daldry picked up Academy Award nominations in the director category for “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours” and “The Reader,” making him the only director to be nominated in this category for his first three films.

Netflix Confirms Commitment To The Crown

13 November 2014 9:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix have finally confirmed their series commitment to the television adaptation of the hit play ‘The Audience,’ which has been in development for a number of months. The streaming service has moved to bolster its growing slate of original drama by ordering 10 episodes of The Crown from series creators Peter Morgan (The Queen) and Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) – both of whom are Academy Award nominees.

The play – written by Morgan – debuted in London in 2013 with Helen Mirren in the lead role of Queen Elizabeth II. Charting 60 years of her reign – from 1952 to 2012 – it conjures a chain of historically significant meetings between the Monarch and a variety of UK Prime Ministers. Mirren’s critically acclaimed performance earned her an Olivier Award for best actress, and she is set to take the role to Broadway when ‘The Audience’ opens there next year. A new version will open in the West End in London a few months later, »
