Best and Worst of the 2015 Berlin Film Festival – So Far

10 February 2015 6:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Foundas: Hi Peter. Well, we’ve officially reached the midpoint of the 2015 Berlin Film Festival, although the most hotly anticipated event in this cold, cold town is still another day away. I’m talking, of course, about the world premiere of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which isn’t the kind of movie one typically thinks of as festival fare, but which events like Berlin and Cannes need as a kind of palate cleanser from the steady parade of world-class arthouse cinema from countries like Iran, China and Chile. Those movies may get you lots of ink in Variety, but it’s only a “Fifty Shades” that can get your red carpet splattered all over the picture pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair.

Actually, the early days of Berlin haven’t exactly wanted for stars this year, with the likes of Christian Bale, Juliette Binoche, James Franco (surprise!), Nicole Kidman »

Buzz About the Cannes Lineup Hits Berlin

9 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even before the Berlin festival is over, and the Oscars remain under wraps, the thoughts of many executives have turned to Cannes.

At this stage, the selectors of Cannes different sections have seen very little, so there is no such thing as a certainty.

Following some of the chatter and looking at which films might have the right credentials comes up with a strongly international selection for Thierry Fremaux and his team to choose from.

From Europe, two-time Grand Prix-winner Matteo Garrone’s period fantasy-horror, “The Tale of Tales,” seems a likely competition contender, with Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel heading the cast.

Fellow Italian, and previous Palme d’Or-winner Nanni Moretti, has “My Mother” (aka “Mia Madre”) while Paolo Sorrentino’s Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel-starrer “Youth” (aka “La Giovinezza,” aka “In the Future”) is also a strong competition contender.

Buzz is strong for “The Lobster,” the English-language »

Berlin: Films Distribution Powers Up Pre-Sales on Moretti’s ‘Mia Madre’ (Exclusive)

6 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin – Paris-based Films Distribution has closed a robust brace of first-round pre-sales on Italian Palme d’Or winner Nanni Moretti’s “Mia madre,” which looks a good bet for festivals later this year.

The director’s hallmark mix of drama and comedy, including sardonic satire, “Mia madre,” now in late post, stars Margherita Buy (“The Caiman,” “Days and Clouds”), in her third collaboration with Moretti, as what’s said to be a Moretti alter ego: a film director whose assured persona on set contrasts with her doubts and fears as she cares for her ailing mother at home.

Reportedly a scream, John Turturro plays a famous, demanding American actor while Moretti limns the director’s brother.

Fandango Films, which co-produces out of Italy with Moretti’s Sacher Film, has Italian rights. Jean Labadie’s Le Pacte, “Madre Mia’s” French producer, will release “Mia Madre” in France.

Yearly 2014 Box Office Down In Italy, But ‘Sniper’ Killing Is Sparking Upbeat Mood For 2015

19 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Yearly box office in Italy dropped 7 percent in 2014 to $666 million, as both local and Hollywood pics lost market share. But 2015 has kicked off strong largely thanks to Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” which has now cumed more than $18 million on Italian screens since making a killer opening as the year started.

And solid bows this weekend of both “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “The Theory of Everything” also bode well for Italo moviegoing to bounce back this year.

“Exodus” bowed this weekend in Italy at $3 million of 649 screens via Fox; “Everything” took $1.5 million from 308 via Universal.

“Sniper,” which launched in Italy on January 1, prior to any other country on the planet, is being cited by a Warner Bros. statement as testimony that Italy remains an important movie market. Since the start of 2015 Italo box office intake and admissions are both up more than 10 percent year-on-year.
