Megan Ellison: The Most Exciting Producer in Hollywood

5 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m fascinated by Megan Ellison. In the normally boring world of movie producers, she’s an intriguing star among them. Usually, you rarely know the names of producers, short of an uber-producer like Scott Rudin or one who’s heavily involved in a filmmaker’s whole universe like Scott Mosier is for Kevin Smith, but aside from those Scotts, most of them are borderline anonymous. Ellison is definitely a new breed, a throwback to an older generation where the films being made were different and exciting. Her recent Best Picture nominations and flirtation with an Oscar win has her primed to become a real star in this line of what. I wanted to show you all the films that she’s helped get onto the big screen, if only to elaborate on just how valuable to the business she is. Ellison is a champion of the auteur. She’s »

Sony Classics set for a bumper year at Cannes, following acquisition of 'Red Army'

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last year was a slightly quieter one than usual for Sony Pictures Classics on the prestige film circuit -- the studio had a number of strong titles, from Asghar Farhadi's "The Past" to Ralph Fiennes's "The Invisible Woman," but only a couple that really connected with audiences. Their strongest Oscar contender, Woody Allen's surprise hit "Blue Jasmine," ruled the Best Actress race but didn't make it all the way to Best Picture. Meanwhile, Best Foreign Language Film -- the category that they normally have on lock, with four consecutive wins between 2009 and 2012 --  didn't go their way at all, with several surprise omissions keeping them out of the final five.  2014, however, looks like it could be a very different year for Spc: just look at their stacked Cannes Film Festival slate, for example. Before the festival has even started, they've already secured five major titles set to play on the Croisette, »

Cannes By the Numbers: Festival Big on Female Filmmakers, Canadians, English-Language Pics

23 April 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It doesn’t feel accidental that the Cannes Film Festival should deliver an unusually strong showing for female filmmakers the same year that Jane Campion is serving as jury president. But festival topper Thierry Fremaux, who’s typically loath to discuss his program in terms of gender representation, insists that featuring the work of 15 women helmers in the official selection — two of them (Naomi Kawase and Alice Rohrwacher) in competition — was not a conscious decision.

“We’ve always shown films directed by women,” Fremaux said, adding that diversity in the movie biz is an issue that needs to be addressed year-round.

Certainly there’s more than one way to measure the inclusiveness of the competition program unveiled at the fest’s April 17 press conference. The youngest director in competition is 25 (Xavier Dolan); the oldest, 83 (Jean-Luc Godard). As always, French helmers are plentiful, including Godard (“Goodbye to Language”), Michel Hazanavicius (“The Search »

New Release Dates: ‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Mortdecai’, and ‘The Nest’

23 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It came as a surprise last year when two potential Oscar contenders – true-story dramas Grace of Monaco and Foxcatcher – were both removed from the 2013 awards season competition on short notice. The two films will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, but whereas the Grace biopic is currently without a U.S. release date, that’s no longer the case for the new real-life story-turned film directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball).

Sony Pictures Classics, according to a report by THR, now plans to release Foxcatcher in the U.S. on November 14th, 2014. There, it will serve as counter-programming to that weekend’s additional freshman titles, in the shapes of David Ayer’s Ww II thriller Fury and ...

'Foxcatcher' Gets Award Season November Release

23 April 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sony Pictures Classics will release Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" on November 14, a full year after it was scheduled to open at the AFI Film Festival 2013. Michael Barker and Tom Bernard pulled the film from that festival; it's now heading to screen in competition at Cannes. It's a big deal to be anointed a full-fledged auteur your first time playing at Cannes, which tends to throw newcomers ("The Cruise," "Capote" and "Moneyball" did not play the festival) into Un Certain Regard or the Quinzaine (Directors Fortnight).  The anticipated awards contender, backed by billionaire Larry Ellison scion Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures, is co-financed by Sony. Miller worked with Sony motion picture chairman Amy Pascal on the Oscar-nominated "Moneyball."  E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman (Miller's "Capote" adapted a true story long-in-development by Miller. John du Pont, a multimillionaire and paranoid schizophrenic, built a wrestling training facility named »

'Foxcatcher' sets sights on awards season with a November release date

23 April 2014 3:02 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When it comes to "Foxcatcher," Sony Pictures Classics have certainly been playing the long game. Bennett Miller's third film was originally set to premiere on the opening night of AFI Fest in La on November 6 last year, priming it for a 2013 awards run, before being abruptly pulled from the release schedule -- the reason given that it wasn't ready in time.. Resurfacing in a somewhat loftier festival slot -- in Competition at Cannes, no less -- the film has retained its aura of prestige. But if you thought the spring premiere meant you'd get to see it sooner rather than later, think again: Sony has announced that the film will be released on November 14, more than a year after it was originally set to be unveiled. That surely means that the film will reappear on the fall festival circuit, in Telluride and/or Toronto, allowing it to build on »

'Foxcatcher' with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum Gets November Release

22 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After being pushed out of its original December 20, 2013 release date last year, Sony Pictures has issued a November 14 release date for Foxcatcher, which stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. The drama from director Bennett Miller will be going up against Relativity's Blackbird, Universal's Dumb and Dumber To and Sony's Fury.

Foxcatcher was considered to be an award season candidate when it was initially slated for release in December, depicting the true story of Jon Du Pont (Steve Carell) the unstable heir to the Du Pont chemical fortune, and his relationship with Olympic wrestlers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) which lead to a tragic murder. Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall co-star.

In related news, Universal Pictures has issued a December 18, 2015 release date for The Nest, starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The comedy will go up against Disney/LucasFilm's highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel »

'Foxcatcher' pins down November release date

22 April 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Foxcatcher, Bennett Miller’s drama about disturbed multimillionaire John du Pont and his ill-fated relationship with Olympic-wrestling brothers Mark and Dave Schultz, will open in theaters Nov. 14. The film, which originally was slated for a 2013 release, will premiere at next month’s Cannes Film Festival.

Steve Carell plays Du Pont, an heir to the family’s huge chemical fortune who established an elite training facility for Olympian wrestlers at his Foxcatcher Farm in Delaware. Two of the wrestlers that became close to du Pont were Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and his younger brother Mark (Channing Tatum), who’d both won »

Spc sets date for Foxcatcher

22 April 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Sony Pictures Classics has planted an awards season pole for Bennett Miller’s Cannes competition entry. Separately, Relativity Media has picked up Us rights to Hector And The Search For Happiness.

Foxcatcher will launch in the Us on November 14 — more than a year later than originally scheduled.

The film was originally scheduled to screen at AFI Fest 2013 prior to a November 7 2013 release, only for the filmmakers to pull it because they needed more time.

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star in the bizarre true story about the relationship between Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark and Dave Schultz and eccentric heir John du Pont that led to murder.

Rounding out the cast are Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall.

Megan Ellison is co-financing the film with Columbia Pictures and produces through Annapurna Pictures with Miller, Jon Kilik, and Anthony Bregman. Panorama handled international sales.

Relativity Media has picked up Us rights to Simon Pegg-starrer »

Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher Finally Gets Release Date

22 April 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last year, Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher was getting a decent amount of awards buzz until its release was delayed. Today, fresh off the announcement that it will compete at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, it was announced that it will finally get a Stateside release on November 14. It's a good date for an indie trying to make a run at some awards, as it is the same weekend Nebraska came out last year. Foxcatcher tells the true story of millionaire John du Pont, who helped in the training of an Olympic wrestler and later murdered him. The film stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Steve Carell's prosthetic nose. »

Foxcatcher Set for November 14th Release; Tina Fey/Amy Poehler Comedy The Nest Faces Star Wars on December 18, 2015

22 April 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Release dates have been announced for two very promising projects.  First up, Moneyball director Bennett Miller’s new drama Foxcatcher will finally arrive in theaters on November 14th of this year.  The pic was originally slated for release last fall, before Sony Pictures Classics pushed it to 2014 in order to get out of the incredibly competitive awards season pile-up.  The film tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and their relationship with eccentric millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Based on the incredible first trailer, this looks to be a serious awards contender, and its November release date puts it in prime position to take advantage of the buzz.  The pic will square off against Dumb and Dumber To and the WWII actioner Fury on its date, but again, this is all about riding the buzz through the December awards voting period. »

Sony Pictures Classics to Bow ‘Foxcatcher’ on Nov. 14

22 April 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After being slotted to premiere next month in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Sony Pictures Classics has dated Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” for a Nov. 14 Stateside release.

The film stars Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo as real-life brothers Mark and Dave Schultz, who were Olympic wrestling champions, along with Steve Carell as the heir to the DuPont chemical fortune, John du Pont. Pic co-stars Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall.

Originally, “Foxcatcher” was slated to bow in 2013 as part of the AFI Festival, though the film was bumped to give Miller more time to finish.

The pic’s fall platform release positions it squarely within the awards season glut.

Foxcatcher” is Miller’s second film to go through Sony Classics after 2005′s “Capote,” which garnered Oscar nominations for picture and director and won best actor for the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

'Foxcatcher' with Steve Carell & Channing Tatum Arrives in November

22 April 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: After getting a first look at Bennett Miller's latest drama Foxcatcher last year, Sony Pictures Classics decided to move the film out of last year's Oscar race to an unknown release in 2014. Now the film starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum is poised to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month, and has just received another awards season release date on November 14th this fall. The film tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Ruffalo) and their relationship with the eccentric John du Pont (Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune that led to murder. We'll likely have a full report on this one out of Cannes so stay tuned. »

'Foxcatcher' Lands November Release Date

22 April 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I think the newly announced November 14 release date for Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher suggests we can probably expect it to play either Toronto, Telluride, Venice or all three before it makes what can only be expected to be a strong run at Oscar. The official unveiling will come in May as it plays in competition at the Cannes Film Festival where critics will get the first look at the film starring Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo as Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark and Dave Schultz whose relationship with the eccentric John du Pont (Steve Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune, leads to murder. In other release date news, the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler comedy, The Nest, at Universal has been slated for a December 18, 2015 release. Now here's the trailer for Foxcatcher, which I've already placed highly on my early Best Picture predictions chart. sb id="858301" height="281" width »

Bennett Miller's 'Foxcatcher' Will Head From Cannes to Theaters On November 14th

22 April 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A week after it made the lineup for the Cannes Film Festival's Official Competition, Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" officially has a release date. Distributor Sony Pictures Classics has set an awards season-hungry date of November 14th for the film, roughly a year after it had originally been set for release. But while those kind of delays often bring bad buzz, its Cannes berth and new date clearly suggest there's a lot of potential for the film, the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and their relationship with the eccentric John du Pont (Steve Carell), heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune that led to murder. The film is produced by Megan Ellison under her company Annapurna Pictures, as well as, Miller, Jon Kilik, and Anthony Bregman.
