Relativity, Storyoscopic set $200m slate fund

14 November 2016 1:08 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity Studios and Storyoscopic Films on Monday announced a joint venture whereby Storyoscopic will produce and finance approximately five or more projects a year.

Films produced under the joint venture and backed by what a source said would be at least $200m in production funding will release internationally via Relativity’s network of output partners and go through Relativity Europa Distribution (Red) in the Us.

Relativity launched Red in 2010 after it acquired Overture Films from John Malone’s Liberty Media and four years later EuropaCorp came on board in a reported $130m deal to acquire a 50% stake.

The venture comes as Relativity shifts its focus towards financing, producing and distributing family films and branded features with global appeal.

George Lee and Marcus Englefield, the duo behind 2D-to-3D conversion specialists Venture 3D, have worked with Hollywood and Chinese partners and launched Storyoscopic in 2013 to make family and genre films in the $15-50m range »

26 October 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Comedian’s Guide to Survival, 2016.

Directed by Mark Murphy

Starring James Buckley, MyAnna Buring, Kevin Eldon, Paul Kaye and James Mullinger.

Synopsis:

James Mullinger, entertainment journalist by day, failing stand-up comedian by night, embarks on a journey of self-discovery to figure out if he should be making people laugh after all…

Not many people believe me when I tell them I lived with two stand-up comedians for almost a year. In fact, Australian comic Brendon Burns, who appears as himself in The Comedian’s Guide to Survival, once did a packed out gig in my kitchen in the suburbs of Wolverhampton. True story. The life of a comedian, I can confirm by proxy, is a strange one, and many of the experiences James Buckley’s protagonist James Mullinger goes through in this semi autobiographical film by Mark Murphy (based on his and Mullinger’s book), I recognise from my »

The Comedian’s Guide To Survival from Signature Entertainment, which is arriving in cinemas on October 28th and on DVD on October 31st, is new comedy which follows James Buckley (The Inbetweeners, Rock & Chips) as a stand-up comic searching for his big break in Hollywood. Below we have an exclusive clip from the ‘The Making Of’ featurette from the new comedy film; check it out…

Failed comedian James Mullinger (based on the eponymous, real-life comedian) has come to a crossroads in his life; no one wants to see him perform, his wife is fed up, and his daytime boss has given him an ultimatum – take a promotion and never do stand up again, or stick to the comedy and lose his job. To add salt to the wound, his boss, the editor of Coq Magazine, wants him to interview the greatest comedians in the UK and North America for an upcoming comedy special. »

Donald Trump: By Roasting Him, We May Have Validated Him

26 September 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Tonight, America will be riveted by the first U.S. Presidential debate of 2016. In a campaign season that has contained all the absurd drama of reality TV, the 56-year-old television tradition will provide voters the clearest and most sober presentation of the candidates and their views. It has tremendous potential to shape the choices we make November 8.

Hilary Clinton is the more experienced orator, but our perception of Donald Trump as a candidate could be shaped by another television institution in which he was on stage while facing opponents who cast aspersions upon him: The Roast of Donald Trump.

First popularized by Dean Martin in the 1970s, the celebrity roast mocks iconic performers and was initially designed as TV’s way of saying: We love you enough to put you through this. Now an annual Comedy Central tradition, in 2011 its subject was a businessman and reality star who is now »

Horror Channel FrightFest 2016 Review – Director’s Cut (2016)

29 August 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director’s Cut, 2016

Directed by Adam Rifkin

Starring Missi Pyle, Penn Jillette, Harry Hamlin, Hayes MacArthur, Lin Shaye, Gilbert Gottfried

Snyopsis:

Herbert Blount aspires to replace the real director of a movie and make it his own by capturing the lead actress and inflicting much horror upon her in his version.

Right, so here’s the pitch. Knocked Off is a crowd funded police thriller starring Missi Pyle, Harry Hamlin and Hayes MacArthur and directed by Adam Rifkin and is about a killer who mimics other killers from the past and these cops are trying to work out who did it. Director’s Cut, the film this reviewer is trying to explain and the film you’re actually watching, is the alternative cut made by one of its backers; a mild mannered man named Herbert Blount, played by Penn Jillette, who thinks of himself as a filmmaker and a better »

Tornadoes can't get better than this. Sharks can't get better than this. Art itself will never be better than this. SyFy's fourth installment of its "hit" Sharknado franchise had pretty much everything we could ever dream of: Sharknadoes, Bouldernadoes, Lightningnadoes, Tara Reid resurrected as a robot, a small child who thinks his mom is a shark but is actually the robot Tara Reid, Gilbert Gottfried as a storm chaser for the Today Show, and Real Housewives working as astrophysicists.
