Film4's David Kosse set to take "bigger swings" with budget boost

4 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Ahead of today’s announcement that Film4’s 2016 budget has been increased from $22m to $36m (£15m to £25m), Film4 CEO David Kosse sat down with Screen to discuss what the extra investment will mean to the company.

The significant boost in investment from Film4’s parent company, Channel 4, comes a little over a year into Kosse’s tenure and is a huge vote of confidence in his vision and strategy for Film4’s future.

Can you begin by sharing your pitch to Channel 4 in terms of securing this significant boost in investment for Film4?

It’s really building on what we’ve done in the past - looking at what we’ve done and saying, “Okay, we’re obviously choosing talent well and choosing projects well”.

But in many cases, we’re not making money on [Film4-backed] movies that are making money. Other people are making money. So we’re choosing the projects, we’re developing »

Kristen Stewart and James Franco Team for ‘Jt Leroy’; Yorgos Lanthimos and Pablo Trapero Find New Projects

4 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Here’s a good sign of momentum: weeks after a documentary premiered at Sundance and received its first wave of fine reviews, the figure known as Jt Leroy is having their life story turned into a feature film. THR tell us Kristen Stewart, James Franco, Helena Bonham Carter, and writer-director Justin Kelly (the Franco-led I Am Michael) will team for Jt Leroy, which examines the eponymous figure — itself the outlet for a writer and actor who fooled the world with “a man who identifies as transgender, tricking the rich and famous in Hollywood, the fashion world and elite literary circles.”

If contracts are arranged, Carter and Stewart will respectively star as Laura Albert and Savannah Knoop, Leroy’s writing and public personas. There are many directions in which this narrative can reach, evidenced by the fact that writer-director-actress Asia Argento, who adapted Leroy’s The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, »

8 February 2016 12:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before starring in the highly-anticipated big budget spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Colin Farrell returns to his indie roots with a bizarre love story entitled The Lobster. After making the festival rounds last year, Alchemy has released the first trailer, just over one month before it hits theaters on March 11. This futuristic romance from director Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth) is set in a world like no other.

‘The Lobster’ Trailer: Colin Farrell Doesn’t Want to Spend the Rest of His Life as a Single Lobster

8 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We’ve got all kinds of romances at the cinema this year. Love is blossoming amid zombie apocalypses and inspiring superpowered vengeance and overcoming Nicholas Sparks-ian brushes with death. But when it comes to sheer weirdness, all of these love stories pale in comparison to Yorgos Lanthimos‘ The Lobster, which is set in a world where singletons who […]

DVD Review: The Lobster

8 February 2016 11:02 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ There were few films at Cannes last year with as strange a central premise as Yorgos Lanthimos' first English language offering The Lobster, written with his long-standing collaborator Efthymis Filippou. Bearing the macabre tone of his previous works Dogtooth and Alps, Lanthimos plants the audience in a bizarre world where being single is anathema. If you aren't coupled off you are whisked away to a sanitary hotel in the countryside where you have 45 days to find a romantic partner or pay the price. If you're still single at the end of the allotted time you are turned into an animal of your choosing. This premise, though outlandish, is in essence an exploration of how in modern society singletons are treated with disdain and suspicion.

Watch: Surreal, Macabre 'The Lobster' Has a Darkly Comic New Trailer (Review & Roundup)

8 February 2016 10:20 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Yorgos Lanthimos' first English-language effort, "The Lobster" (Alchemy, March 11), is entirely in tune with the film most of us have seen, the wittily high-concept taboo-buster "Dogtooth," which was nominated for an Oscar. Working again with his co-screenwriter on his last three films, Efthimis Filippou, Lanthimos felt ready to expand his horizons beyond what was available to him in Greece, having moved to England four years ago. Watch: Rachel Weisz and Golden Globe Nominee Jane Fonda Talk Paolo Sorrentino's 'Youth' (Exclusive Video) His multi-country cast ranges from Irishman Colin Farrell, Brits Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, and Olivia Coleman, Frenchwoman Lea Seydoux, American John C. Reilly, and Greek Angeliki Papoulia, who described the film as "funny, violent and sweet" at last year's Cannes, where "The Lobster" debuted to positive notices and won the Jury Prize.

Colin Farrell And Rachel Weisz Star As Anxious Singletons In New The Lobster Trailer

8 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Anxious singletons and forbidden love take center stage in the latest trailer for The Lobster, the near-future Orwellian love story coming by way of Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth, Julieta).

If the past 24 hours have been dominated with whimsical summer blockbuster, then today’s snippet from Lanthimos’ genre hybrid ought to act as the perfect palette cleanser. Thrusting Colin Farrell’s David into a dystopian future, the narrative driving The Lobster orbits around one single and ingenious premise: singletons are forced to find love within 45 days or they’re banished to the woods and transformed into animals.

Such a bizarre twist of events naturally breeds an air of palpable awkwardness between the residents at The Hotel, with Rachel Weisz, John C. Riley, Léa Seydoux, and Ben Whishaw joining the list of hapless romantics in search of a significant other – lest the turn into woodland creatures. With an excellent premise at its core, »

Check Out the Trailer for Colin Farrell's Strange, Dark Comedy The Lobster

8 February 2016 9:25 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Actor Colin Farrell seems to have quite the knack for picking out interesting roles. Sure, every so often he'll show up in bigger films like Horrible Bosses or the upcoming Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, but more often than not, he tends to stick to relatively dark, low budget affair like In Bruges or Saving Mr. Banks (which, while not quite a low-key affair, had a surprising performance from the Irish thespian). This upcoming film, The Lobster, seems to be more in the spirit of the weird, dark films the actor has done in the past.

Directed by Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos (who also co-wrote the picture), The Lobster tells the story of a dystopian future. In this future, single people are sent away to a place called The Hotel. There, they have 45 days to find a mate, and if they should fail, they will be transformed into »

Official Us Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Funky Romance 'The Lobster'

8 February 2016 9:18 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Have you ever danced with anybody?" Alchemy has debuted the official Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film called The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell. The film is mostly in English, set in a dystopian future where single people end up at a villa where they must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into an animal. It's a brilliant mockery of modern society and romance, and some moviegoers will totally fall or it, while others will find it annoying. The full cast includes Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly and Ben Whishaw. This trailer starts to show more of the second half where Farrell ends up with a group hiding out in the forest, all in pursuit of Weisz. I seriously enjoyed this film - read my Nyff review. Enjoy! Here's the full theatrical Us trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster, direct from YouTube: In a dystopian near future, »

Read More: Cannes Review: Yorgos Lanthimos' 'The Lobster' Explores a Crazy World More Familiar Than It Looks One of the most ambitious titles to play on the festival circuit last year, Yorgos Lanthimos' "The Lobster" is finally coming to U.S. theaters this March and, trust us, you've never seen anything quite like it before. Set in somewhat of a dystopian future where society highly values relationships, the movie stars Colin Farrell as an architect who checks into a hotel after his wife leaves him.
