Netflix to Launch ‘To the Bone’ in Europe at Ischia Fest, With Ted Sarandos in Tow

12 June 2017 2:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Anorexia drama “To the Bone,” to which Netflix picked up worldwide rights at Sundance, will have its European festival premiere at Italy’s upcoming Ischia Global Film and Music fest, with Ted Sarandos and stars Lily Collins and Alex Sharp expected to make appearances.

To the Bone,” the first feature film by prominent U.S. TV writer-director-producer Marti Noxon (“UnREAL,” Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), follows a 20-year-old anorexic (Collins) who tries to get the medical help she needs at a group home. Keanu Reeves plays an unconventional doctor.

The indie pic mixing dramatic and comic elements is based on the director’s own experiences with eating disorders and is produced by Julie Lynn, Bonnie Curtis, Karina Miller, and Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi, founders and co-chiefs of Italy’s Ambi Group.

Collins and Sharp, who plays a young British dancer also struggling with anorexia, will be feted with Ischia’s rising star nods. »

Silence Arrives on Digital and Blu-Ray This March

22 February 2017 12:36 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Martin Scorcese's powerful religious film, following the Catholic church's mission to instill Christianity in Fuedal Japan, Silence is coming out this March!  Come inside to find out how you can get your hands on it early.

One of the biggest snubs of this year's Academy Awards, Silence, is making its way to digital and blu-ray, merely 3 months after being on the big screen.  The Martin Scorsese religious feature, starring Andrew GarfieldAdam Driver, and Liam Neeson will arrive on Blu-Ray on March 28th, but for audiences who can't wait that long the Digital HD version will be available March 14th.

Understandably, there aren't many added features for the Blu-Ray/Digital copy of Silence.  If you haven't seen the movie, there really isn't much of a need for an alternate ending, deleted scenes, bloopers, or anything of the sort.  Instead, the only new content will stem from a »

Read More: 2017 Oscar Predictions

Degree of difficulty is key in this category. Movies of scale and scope and originality –especially if they are period or fantasy — get the advantage. Which is why the Coen brothers’ ambitious Hollywood comedy “Hail, Caesar!” — from musical numbers to synchronized swimming — is a strong contender.

Frontrunners

John Bush, Charles Wood (“Doctor Strange”)

Stuart Craig, Anna Pinnock (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”)

Jess Gonchor, Nancy Haigh (“Hail, Caesar!”)

Sandy Reynolds-Wasco, David Wasco (“La La Land”)

Patrice Vermette; Paul Hotte (“Arrival”)

2017 Oscar Predictions: Best Costume Design

10 January 2017 12:47 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Read More: 2017 Oscar Predictions

Period and fantasy always have an advantage over contemporary in the Oscar costume universe. The Costume Designers branch, more than many others, is often willing to go their own way (remember winner “Priscilla: Queen of the Desert”?) They may not care if “The Dressmaker,” say, or “Allied,” did badly at the box office, or if everyone else seems to love “La La Land.” They just look at the clothes. But if Mary Zophre is up for both “La La Land” and “Hail, Caesar!,” the advantage goes to the Best Picture contender.

Contenders are listed in alphabetical order:

Frontunners

Colleen Atwood (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”)

Consolata Boyle (“Florence Foster Jenkins”)

Madeline Fontaine (“Jackie”)

Joanna Johnston (“Allied”)

Mary Zophres (“La La Land”)

Contenders

Marion Boyce and Margot Wilson (“The Dressmaker”)

Sharen Davis (“Fences”)

Dante Ferretti (“Silence”)

Renee Ehrlich Kalfus (“Hidden Figures”)

‘Silence’ Producer on the Challenges and Triumphs of Making Martin Scorsese’s Film: ‘It’s Marty Baring His Soul’

5 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Silence” is the culmination of Martin Scorsese’s 28-year quest to bring Shusaku Endo’s book to the screen, but the struggles didn’t end once the film got the greenlight. The production was an endless series of challenges, says producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff. “I knew it was going to be difficult, but I didn’t realize how difficult. Every day I was faced with new problems to solve. I lost 25 pounds, and was brought to my knees every day. But the takeaway was that it was the most positive and rewarding film I have ever been a part of.”

The Paramount film shot in 73 days, all in Taiwan. “When you go into a new country and a new culture, your learning curve is very steep,” says Koskoff. There were five languages spoken on the set, with the team including Americans, Japanese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Italians, Australians, British and Irish, among others. »

The Best Trailers of 2016

2 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s easy to bemoan the majority of trailers for giving away too much or, upon seeing the film, ending up with something far different than what was marketed. However, a few times a year, a trailer works on its own terms; as an impressive piece of editing in its own right and/or as the ideal tease for an highly-anticipated film. We’ve selected our 20 favorites from the last year, ranging from some of 2017’s biggest films to the best in arthouse and foreign films to a handful of surprises.

Check them out below and let us know which trailers you were most impressed with in 2016.

20. The Lost City of Z

A late contender to the list, this brief preview for The Lost of City of Z was perfect tease for James Gray‘s period epic. Giving us our first glimpse at Darius Khondji‘s stunning, shot-on-35mm visuals, »
