Benicio Del Toro, Paul Dano and Patricia Arquette to star in Ben Stiller’s Escape at Dannemora

3 June 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Showtime has announced that it has given the green light to Escape at Dannemora, a new limited series from Ben Stiller, which will star Benicio Del Toro, Paul Dano and Patricia Arquette and tells the true story of a 2015 New York prison break which sparked a massive manhunt for two convicted murderers who were aided by a married female prison employee with whom they both became sexually entangled.

Del Toro will play convicted murderer Richard Matt, an artistic yet intimidating force within the prison, who masterminds the escape. Arquette is set to portray Tilly Mitchell, a working class, married woman who supervises the prison tailor shop and becomes sexually involved with both convicts, inducing her to assist them with their escape. Dano meanwhile will portray David Sweat, a convicted cop-killer who uses his good looks to seduce Tilly and becomes a reluctant partner in Richard Matt’s plot.

Cannes Ends with…Awards — 3rd of 3

Cannes Ends with…Awards — 3rd of 3

The heightened security with machine gun armed soldiers and policemen constantly patrolling was intensified after the Manchester Massacre. With a pall over the festival, one minute of silence was observed for the 22 murdered and flags hung at half-mast. In addition to that, the sudden death at 57 of the Busan Film Festival deputy director Kim Ji-seok and that of the James Bond star Roger Moore brought the film world into a new perspective as we join the larger world to face the random indications of human mortality. High security vs. cinema as a sanctuary of freedom is highlighted this year like no other time that I can recall in my 31 years here.President of the jury, Pedro Almodovar

But life does go on, the jury judges, the stars get press attention on the red carpet and the rest of us continue to wait patiently in »

“Okja” and “Wonderstruck” debut to raves at the Cannes Film Festival

24 May 2017 4:12 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

The Cannes Film Festival is currently going on over in France. It won’t wrap up for a few days still, but now is a fine time to check in and see how the fest is going. Cannes is the most prestigious festival in the world, so it always marks a seminal point in the season, regardless of what is playing. This year, the lineup has seemed, at least to me, a little less top notch than usual. Still, plenty of quality movies have debuted, without question. Awards will be handed out next week, and we’ll cover that, but for now…let’s just discuss what’s playing in the south of France right now. So far at Cannes, two of the more interesting titles to be largely feted include Okja and Wonderstruck. Also in the mix for heavy praise are The Florida Project, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and »

Cannes Review: ‘Okja’ is an Intelligent, Ambitious Blockbuster

20 May 2017 5:53 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

A dystopian story about a genetically engineered beast with overt anti-capitalist connotations, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja represents a synthesis and an upgrade – in scale as well as quality – of the director’s previous outings The Host and Snowpiercer, confirming him as one of the finest contemporary craftsmen of intelligent, ambitious blockbusters.

Okja is set in a parallel, not-very-different present, where the giant agrochemical corporation Mirando has covertly engineered a new breed of “super-pigs” — ostensibly to solve the world’s hunger problems, but really just to sell cheap meat and make a shit-ton of cash. Gmo foods carry a stigma, however, so Mirando lie about the provenance of the super-pigs, claiming they were discovered on a Chilean farm. To divert the public’s attention, the company’s grotesque CEO, Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton), launches a massive promotional campaign in which farmers across the world will compete in raising the largest super-pig »

German Film Budgets Experience Boom Under Merkel

19 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The German film industry is cheering Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government for significantly increasing film funding this year, particularly for major international productions.

While total annual funding last year reached nearly €240 million ($261.6 million) from the country’s 10 federal and regional film support agencies, the government has agreed to up the film support budget overseen by German culture and media commissioner Monika Grütters.

This includes the German Federal Film Fund (Dfff), a 20% rebate program vital for major international productions, as well as a separate pot supporting smaller artistic and experimental films. Recent Dfff-funded productions include James Kent’s upcoming historical drama “The Aftermath,” starring Keira Knightley and Alexander Skarsgård; Gore Verbinski’s “A Cure for Wellness”; and Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War.”

In February, Grütters announced an increase in this year’s Dfff budget from $55 million to $81.7 million, with the hike aimed specifically at international co-productions and big-budget domestic films. »

Cannes 2017: Okja bows in Cannes to positive response following screening hiccup

19 May 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Okja

You may have read online about the slight hiccup encountered at the very first screening of the very first Netflix movie at the Cannes Film Festival earlier today. Reports that the crowd booed as the Netflix logo came up are untrue, at least in the section where I was sat – all I heard were cheers, which actually surprised me considering the coverage of the streamer’s first attendance here in the south of France got prior to the festival.

The six minutes that kicked off the screening of Okja did attract jeers, hisses and boos purely because the projection was slightly off and heads were being cut off and, granted, there were some wiffs when the Netflix card appeared for the second time as the film was restarted, but make no mistake, Boon Jong Ho’s new film was met with rounds of applause eventually as the final credits rolled two hours later. »
