Woman in Black director criticises BBFC rating

22 January 2015 3:44 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: British director Tom Harper has sharply criticised the British Board Of Film Classification (BBFC) over its decision to give his Hammer horror sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death a 15 certificate.

Speaking in Rotterdam, where his political drama War Book opened Iffr last night, Harper questioned the grounds on which the classification for the horror sequel was made.

“Personally, I was disappointed it (Angel Of Death) was a 15,” Harper told Screen. “There was no blood, no swearing. Obviously, there are some uncomfortable scenes within it. It was always intended to be a 12A.”

The director said the filmmakers were presented by the BBFC with a “whole long list of - to my opinion - questionable reasons” as to why Angel Of Death was made a 15 rather than a 12A.

According to Harper, one of the moments highlighted by the BBFC was “a lady appears behind a door and a door slams”.

‘Selma,’ ‘Woman in Gold,’ ‘Life’ to Play at Berlin Film Festival

15 January 2015 2:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Ava DuVernay’s “Selma,” Simon Curtis’ “Woman in Gold” and Anton Corbijn’s “Life” will screen at the Berlin Film Festival as part of the Berlinale Special program.

Selma,” which stars David Oyelowo and Tom Wilkinson, makes its international premiere in Berlin. It was described by Variety‘s reviewer as a “razor-sharp portrait of the civil rights movement.” Pic has made faltering progress in the awards season, mainly due to the lack of screeners.

Life,” which world premieres in Berlin, stars Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan. Pic is inspired by the true story of a friendship that developed between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean when Stock was commissioned to photograph the actor for Life magazine in 1955. Corbijn’s previous pics are “Control” and “A Most Wanted Man.”

Woman in Gold,” which is another world premiere, stars Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds and Daniel Brühl. It centers on a Jewish woman, »

Top 20 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015

14 January 2015 10:53 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #36. Paolo Sorrentino’s In the Future

8 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

In the Future

Director: Paolo Sorrentino // Writer: Paolo Sorrentino

While Italian auteur went home empty-handed from Cannes 2013 with The Great Beauty, he went on to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. One of the most renowned modern masters of Italian cinema, Sorrentino returns to the English language for a second dip following 2011’s Sean Penn headlined This Must Be the Place. While that was probably our least favorite of Sorrentino’s filmography (especially compared to his last film or 2008’s Il Divo), we’re excited for the starry line-up of his latest, including Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Jane Fonda, and Rachel Weisz. The narrative focuses on two old friends, both in the late autumn of their lives. One a retired composer/conductor, the other a filmmaker writing what he assumes will be his last film, we assume surprises are in store for both.

Cast: Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, »
