Christopher Nolan Curates BFI Series on the Influences of ‘Dunkirk’

25 May 2017 5:09 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“I spent a lot of time reviewing the silent films for crowd scenes –the way extras move, evolve, how the space is staged and how the cameras capture it, the views used,” Nolan said earlier this year when it came to the creation of his WWII epic Dunkirk, referencing films such as IntoleranceSunrise: A Song of Two Humans, and Greed, as well as the films of Robert Bresson.

Throughout the entire month of July, if you’re in the U.K., you are lucky enough to witness a selection of these influences in a program at BFI Southbank. Featuring all screenings in 35mm or 70mm — including a preview of Dunkirk over a week before it hits theaters — there’s classics such as Greed, Sunrise, and The Wages of Fear, as well as Alien, Speed, and even Tony Scott’s final film.

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk To Play At BFI Southbank On July 13

24 May 2017 1:02 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Running from 1-31 July, BFI Southbank are delighted to present a season of films which have inspired director Christopher Nolan’s new feature Dunkirk (2017), released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 21 July.

Christopher Nolan Presents has been personally curated by the award-winning director and will offer audiences unique insight into the films which influenced his hotly anticipated take on one of the key moments of WWII.

The season will include a special preview screening of Dunkirk on Thursday 13 July, which will be presented in 70mm and include an introduction from the director himself.

Christopher Nolan is a passionate advocate for the importance of seeing films projected on film, and as one of the few cinemas in the UK that still shows a vast amount of celluloid film, BFI Southbank will screen all the films in the season on 35mm or 70mm.

Why Are There So Many British War Films Being Made?

9 April 2017 4:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neil Calloway looks at the rise in British World War II movies…

This week brought the news that Ridley Scott would be directing a film set during the Battle of Britain. It’s a surprise he hasn’t done it before; he was born two years before war was declared and his father was a career officer in the British Army; he lived it, rather than just having absorbed it through books and films after the fact.

The film joins two other films coming soon that tell of the British experience during the Second World War, Their Finest, a fun romantic dramedy starring the luminous Gemma Arterton and set in the British film industry of the time and Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk . 2017 will also see both Brian Cox and Gary Oldman play Winston Churchill in different projects. It feels like, after a couple of decades where they were few and far between, »

10 Crucial George Segal Roles Beyond ‘The Goldbergs’

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

George Segal rode talent and a hot streak to the top of the movie heap from the mid-1960s into the 1980s. If you only know Segal for his popular TV series “Just Shoot Me” and “The Goldbergs,” here are crucial earlier roles to check out.

King Rat (1965), dir. Bryan Forbes:

This was a break-out role for Segal, a prestigious WWII drama with a mostly British cast that included John Mills, Tom Courtenay, James Fox, Patrick O’Neal, and Denholm Elliott. Segal played a charismatically amoral American sharpie, scrambling to maintain his place at the top of the black-market heap in a Japanese prison camp.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), dir. Mike Nichols:

Segal earned his lone Oscar nomination for this role, in Nichols’ adaptation of Edward Albee’s stinging marital drama. He brought brains and vulnerability as a college professor who, with his mousy wife (Sandy Dennis »

Annette Bening Cast in FX’s ‘Katrina: American Crime Story’

6 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Murphy has worked his casting magic again.

Annette Bening has been tapped to star in “Katrina: American Crime Story,” the next installment of the award-winning limited series from executive producers Murphy, Nina Jacobson, and Brad Simpson.

Bening will play Kathleen Blanco, the governor of Louisiana during and after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. She did not seek re-election, and was succeeded by Bobby Jindal.

No other cast members have been officially confirmed, though Murphy has said Emmy-winner — and frequent collaborator — Sarah Paulson will be returning to the series.

“You will have the famous people and also the people who weren’t famous,” Simpson said about what other characters to expect.

FX Networks CEO John Landgraf announced last month at the Television Critics Assn. press tour that “Katrina” will air in 2018. It will be quickly followed by the third installment of the “American Crime Story” franchise, which will explore the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace. An »
