Outsider Pictures Handling Sales on Small is Biutiful Title ‘1,200 Souls’ (Exclusive)

18 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Paul Hudson’s L.A. based Outsider Pictures has boarded “1,200 Souls,” a fantasy thriller set in the high Pyrenees, and one of the highlights at the 10th Spain-Ile de France Small is Biutiful in Paris, a prestigious boutique Spain-France co-production forum which unspooled June 23.

Outsider Pictures is handling international sales rights on “1,200 Souls,” the latest movie from the Zaragoza-based producer-director tandem of Marta Cabrera and Pablo Aragues whose “Novatos,” also repped by Hudson, was a Netflix worldwide distribution pick-up.

In his first two features, Aragues tackled sects (“Vigilo el camino”) and hazing (“Novatos”). Backed by the Aragon Film Commission, “1,200 Souls” is set in a small town in the lap of the Pyrenees, to which a young woman, Carla, returns to scatter her mother’s ashes, only to be confronted by violence, deaths and the seemingly supernatural, such as spontaneous combustion.

A film about “a girl looking for her origins,” Cabrera told Variety, »

Movie Review: Okja is a messy, go-for-broke satire from the director of Snowpiercer

26 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

A choppy mix of anti-corporate farce and Spielbergian fantasy, Bong Joon-Ho’s bilingual Okja veers wildly, but never stalls; if Bong, the South Korean writer-director behind The Host, Memories Of Murder, and Snowpiercer, never squares the film’s satirical means with its sentimental ends, he at least throws the weight of his considerable filmmaking talent behind both. At the center—sometimes literally, as she tends to squeeze everyone else out of the way—is Okja, a hippopotamic female “super-pig” raised from piglethood in the mountains of South Korea by little Mija (Ahn Seo-Hyun) and her grandpa Hee-Bong (Bong regular Byun Hee-Bong). They are among two dozen “traditional farmers” selected from around the world to raise super-pigs as part of a decade-long publicity stunt put together by the agri-business titan Mirando, culminating in a contest judged by campy TV animal expert Dr. Johnny (Jake Gyllenhaal) and a public unveiling at a »

Newsire: Netflix snaps up art world movie from the Nightcrawler team

Movie Review – Okja (2017)

24 June 2017 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Okja, 2017.

Directed by Bong Joon Ho.

Starring: Seo-Hyun Ahn, Hee-Bong Byun, Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steven Yeun and Lily Collins.

Synopsis:

Meet Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend – a massive animal named Okja.

Okja is the latest original film to come from Netflix. It experienced a little controversy when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival for being a film from a streaming service. However, I think once that audience watched the film their minds quickly changed.

Our story follows a multi-national corporation, the Mirando Corporation, which has successfully created a new species of animal that they call “super pigs.” They send 26 of these super pigs to different farms across the world to be raised and taken care of and within ten years time they plan to use the meat from these pigs to sell to the mainstream. »

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!Adriana Floridia6/23/2017 12:05:00 Pm

There was lots of exciting and controversial movie news that dropped this week. Take a look at some of the highlights below!

Jurassic Park fans only have to wait exactly one year until the next installment in the revived franchise is released. On June 22nd, 2018, we're getting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which will bring back new stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, along with that always familiar face, Jeff Goldblum. We still don't know too much about the sequel, but we can enjoy this ever-nostalgic teaser poster in the meantime.

Just a couple of days ago we learned that the Han Solo film lost its directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller due to creative differences, but the film wasn't an orphan for too long. Ron Howard's name was the first to be thrown around upon this news, and today it has been confirmed that he will indeed take over the project. It's a sensible move, as Howard has a longstanding relationship with Star Wars, as he was originally tipped to direct The Phantom Menace. The film starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo is slated for release on May 25th, 2018.

We have the new trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as one of the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing back in 2013. It's the true story of how Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) helped the police track down the killers, while recovering from the trauma himself. Check out the trailer below!

His story captured our attention. His strength captured our hearts. Jake Gyllenhaal is Boston Marathon bombing survivor in #StrongerMovie. pic.twitter.com/HLtCkVhGFn

Xavier Dolan and Jessica Chastain fans alike can rejoice, as we have our first teaser poster for his first English-language film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. The film tells the story of the written correspondence between a famous television star and a young actor, and the impact it had on both of their lives. It looks like Jessica Chastain's character is "up to no good" to quote Dolan, as she plays a sneaky journalist in the film. Check out the poster below!

Xavier Dolan (@XDolan) June 22, 2017

This week, we heard that legendary method actor Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting. The There Will Be Blood star has three Oscars and an almost unparalleled filmography. He's widely considered one of our best actors of all time, which is why most have been devastated by this news. While we're hoping Daniel changes his mind at some point in the future, we can at least look forward to seeing him in what will apparently be his last role, as a fashion designer in Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread, due out later this year. 

This week we got to feast our eyes on more footage from the Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049. If what you saw in the trailer blew your mind, there are even more visuals to marvel over in the video below. Blade Runner 2049 sees Ryan Gosling as a new blade runner named K who discovers a long-kept secret that could plunge society into chaos. This leads him to finding Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for almost thirty years. Check it out below!

We can't get over this photo sent out by Robert Downey Jr. on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, that has Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Wong and The Hulk sharing a meal. It also gives us a little glimpse at some new costumes, and is obviously getting us super pumped for the new film.

Thank You for Your Service debuted its first trailer and poster this week! Jason Hall, who wrote the screenplay for American Sniper, makes his directorial debut with this one and also serves as its screenwriter. The movie gives an in-depth look at how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects American servicemen and women returning home from war. It stars Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Amy Schumer, and Joe Cole. This looks like a powerful movie and we expect some Oscar buzz around this one. Check out the trailer below and see Thank You for Your Service in Cineplex theatres on October 27th!

A new trailer and poster for American Assassin dropped and this looks like an unbelievable ride. This one follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence, leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East. Check out the new trailer below and see American Assassin when it hits Cineplex theatres September 15th!

Deadpool 2 has an official release date of June 1st, 2018 and production officially began this week! Even though that's more than a year away we cannot be more pumped! Ryan Reynolds will return as everyone's favourite foul-mouthed anti-hero. The plot for this one is still under wraps but we do know that the story will involve Cable (son of the X-Men character Cyclops), played by Josh Brolin. David Leitch is set to direct; he also has Atomic Blonde hitting theatres this coming July. The original Deadpool was such a fun ride that the wait for Deadpool 2 is going to be looong... check out the teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 and a picture from the movie's set below!

Top 7 Movies to Celebrate Pride!

Top 7 Movies to Celebrate Pride!Top 7 Movies to Celebrate Pride!Jenny Bullough6/23/2017 12:03:00 Pm

Pride Month is already well under way! With events, parades, and more, people are coming together to celebrate and show support for the Lgbtq community, and we love it!

But let’s face it, no matter how festive the mood is sometimes the last thing we want to do is go out in the boiling hot sun or pouring rain to stand side-by-side with a horde of sweaty strangers. If you’d rather stay home, you can still celebrate Pride with these movies (and more) from the Cineplex Store!

Boys Don’t Cry

Hilary Swank won an Academy Award for her leading role in this film, which tells the true story of Brandon Teena, a transgender teen living in rural Nebraska. Although Brandon finds happiness and acceptance with his girlfriend Lana, played by Chloe Sevigny, he has a hard time fitting in with the rest of the town -- especially when his secret is exposed...

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

The Danish Girl

In this historical drama, Eddie Redmayne portrays the Danish artist Einar Wegener. When his wife Gerda, a portraitist, asks him to stand in for a female model, the simple act of dressing as a woman unlocks a longing Einar never knew existed, leading the couple on a journey through the meaning of identity -- and marriage.

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

Brokeback Mountain

Widely hailed as an instant classic for its sensitive portrayal of forbidden romance, this period drama tells the story of two cowboys, Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal), and their decades-long love affair in 1960s Wyoming. Director Ang Lee beautifully depicts both the rugged scenery and passionate longing between Ennis and Jack. Have tissues handy!

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

Imagine Me & You

A happily-married newlywed (Piper Perabo) suddenly and unexpectedly falls head-over-heels for a woman she meets at her wedding (Lena Headey), creating a stir among her family and friends and causing her to question her sexual orientation in this surprisingly funny and bittersweet dramedy. 

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

In & Out

When a small-town high school drama teacher is outed as gay by a former student’s Oscar acceptance speech, it sparks a media frenzy. Except he's not gay! Is he...? Kevin Kline, Tom Selleck, Joan Cusack and Debbie Reynolds fill the cast of this hilarious tale of accidental self-discovery.

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

Carol

The friendship between two women (Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara) deepens into love in 1950s New York, challenging conventional social norms, and the effects ripple through their families and community. Nominated for multiple awards, this unmissable drama was included on many "Best of" lists for 2015. 

Watch the trailer and click here to rent or buy:

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Based (very) loosely on the familiar story of Dr. Frankenstein, this campy, outrageous cult classic finds a strait-laced couple (Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick) stumbling upon a party thrown by the "transvestite from transsexual Transylvania" Dr. Frank-n-Furter (Tim Curry). The plot is wacky, but the final message of "don't dream it, be it" certainly fits with the Pride theme of self-acceptance!

Coming Distractions: Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany grow Stronger in David Gordon Green’s latest

23 June 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Last year’s Patriot’s Day took a broad look at the events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing, but, based on the first trailer, Stronger—which tackles the same subject—looks like it’s seeking to tell a more personal story. The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Jeff Bauman, who was the subject of one of the most famous photos from the day, and charts his recovery process and his relationship with then-girlfriend Erin Hurley (Tatiana Maslany). (The real-life Bauman and Hurley got married and then announced they were divorcing earlier this year.) David Gordon Green—whose oeuvre is impossible to pin down—directs. Stronger is due out September 22. »

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the tragic yet inspiring trailer for Boston Marathon drama Stronger

23 June 2017 6:09 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Stronger is based on the real life story of Jeff Bauman, who was caught in the crossfire and lost both his legs at the 2013 Boston Marathon. Today the first trailer has landed.

Unlike last year’s Patriots Day, in which Mark Wahlberg played a cop at the heart of the Boston Marathon bombing, Stronger flips the coin to focus its narrative on one of the survivors of the horrific tragedy. The trailer takes us back to that fateful day in 2013, where one man proudly attends the marathon to support his girlfriend, when a bomb tears through the crowd. We follow Bauman as he struggles with the loss of his legs, going from anger to inspirational in the two and a half minute trailer.

Directed by David Gordon Green and written by John Pollono, Stronger also stars Tatiana Maslany and Academy Award® nominee Miranda Richardson as Patty Bauman.

Stronger Synopsis

Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun.

He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humour, Stronger is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”

Chris here. Could this finally be Jake Gyllenhaal's Oscar year? Of course it's too early to call (and we won't jinx our adored Jake) but he's got a true life drama coming that's right in the Academy's wheelhouse: David Gordon Green's Stronger.

Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing that lost both legs and helped identify the assailants. The film charts his recovery and rehabilitation as he becomes the face of the survivors for the city of Boston and the world at large. True story, disability, big emotion - quite a few of Oscar's favorite pasttimes, and maybe a more mainstream play for Gyllenhaal. But how does the film look? Take a look at the first trailer and we'll run down the Yes No Maybe So after the jump »

Today in movie news: the Jurassic World sequel's title is announced, the Han Solo prequel quickly finds a new director, Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the first trailer for Stronger, and more!

Stronger: Jake Gyllenhaal Wrestles With Ptsd In Heart-Wrenching First Trailer

22 June 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If Peter Berg’s gripping Patriots Day centered on Boston’s law enforcement and how they reacted to the marathon bombing of 2013, then David Gordon Green’s true-life drama Stronger looks set to tell its story through the lens of Jeff Bauman, a 27-year-old Boston native left on the brink of death after the attack.

While waiting at the finish line to cheer on his ex-girlfriend, Erin, Bauman was sadly one of the 16 people who lost limbs once the blast occurred – both legs, in this particular case – and was forced to undergo a long, painful road to recovery that involved Ptsd, crippling physical pain and, ultimately, becoming the “living embodiment of the Boston Strong.” It’s a story with enough raw emotion to reduce us to an emotional wreck, and by adapting Bauman and Bret Witter’s non-fiction novel, Green and screenwriter John Pollono will no doubt deliver a poignant, touching tribute to those affected by the Boston attack.

On board to help bring that story to life are Jake Gyllenhaal (The Division) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), two equally dynamic actors that could well be in line for award nominations for their respective performances.

The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

Stronger follows Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Maslany). Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. Filled with raw emotion, humanity and humor, Stronger is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”

Stronger, also starring Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown, is expected to open on September 22nd, a date it currently shares with Battle of the Sexes, The Lego Ninjago Movie and Matthew Vaughn’s action sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle. »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany bring to life the struggles of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman and his then-girlfriend Erin Hurley in the trailer for Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate’s “Stronger.”

Bauman was standing at the finish line to support Hurley in the race when two bombs detonated in the 2013 terrorist attack that killed three people and injured hundreds more. He lost his legs at the knee and went on to write a 2015 memoir of the same name describing his efforts to adjust to his new life.

The trailer depicts the couple’s relationship leading up to the bombing and how they struggled to remain together as Bauman faced despair after the injury and worked to cope with his newfound position as a symbol of American and Bostonian bravery.

The film is directed by David Gordon Green from a script written by Boston local John Pollono, and also stars Miranda Richardson as Bauman’s mother and Clancy Brown as his father. It is produced by Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label, Mandeville Films, Bold Films, and Nine Stories. It’s Gyllenhaal’s first production under his Nine Stories banner.

Lionsgate also produced “Patriots Day,” another Boston bombing film starring Mark Wahlberg. Although the film received generally positive reviews, some Boston critics took issue with its depiction of the tragedy and the fictional nature of Wahlberg’s character.

Stronger” premieres Sept. 22.
