Winner of the Special Presentation Prize from the International Federation of Film Critics, finally the household name of Cuarón made certain that this did not get lost in the Tiff shuffle. Now it’s got a big player in the distribution game to back it. Following his directorial debut (Year of the Nail), Variety reports that Jonás Cuarón’s Desierto has been picked up by Stx Entertainment. More than likely, this will become a 2016 release.
Gist: Written by Cuarón and Mateo García, starring Gael García Bernal, this centers on a group of Mexicans whose attempts to cross the border into the United States are complicated by a shotgun-wielding vigilante (Jeffrey Dean Morgan).
Worth Noting: Cinematographer Damián García’s big critical break came with the work he did on the film prior to this, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ Güeros (read review). They’ll be collaborating once again on Museo.

Jonás Cuarón’s Desierto was one of the titles to watch at the just-wrapped Toronto Film Festival. Now the immigration drama starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan has landed at Stx Entertainment, which made the biggest splash at the fest this year when it acquired the Ilya Naishuller-directed Pov thriller Hardcore for $10 million after a big auction. The deal is for North American… »
After screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and winning the Special Presentation Prize from the International Federation of Film Critics, Jonás Cuarón's second feature, "Desierto," has found a home with STX Entertainment. Variety reports the distribution company is picking up rights for the border thriller, giving the film a spot on STX's upcoming slate alongside "Secret in Their Eyes," "Free State of Jones" and "Hardcore." The company had success releasing "The Gift" in August. "Desierto" stars Gael García Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and focuses on a group of Mexicans as their attempts to cross the U.S.-Mexican border are complicated by a vigilante. STX was founded last year by producer Robert Simonds with a goal of releasing mid-budget dramas »

Stx Entertainment has acquired North American rights to Jonás Cuarón’s immigration thriller “Desierto,” which stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, an individual with knowledge of the deal has told TheWrap. The story follows a group of would-be immigrants (including Bernal) whose dream of entering the United States turns into a desperate fight for their lives when a deranged vigilante (Morgan) begins stalking and preying upon the group as they trek across the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the Sonoran Desert. Cuarón (“Gravity”) and Mateo García co-wrote “Desierto,” which debuted last month at the Toronto International Film Festival. »

The immigration thriller was directed by “Gravity” screenwriter Jonás Cuarón and stars Gael García Bernal (“Y Tu Mama Tambien”) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Watchmen”). It debuted this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it received strong reviews for its performances and direction, and won the Special Presentation Prize from the International Federation of Film Critics.
“‘Desierto’ operates on a level that is swift, primal and unrelenting,” wrote Variety critic Justin Chang in a favorable notice.
The film centers on a group of Mexicans whose attempts to cross the border into the United States are complicated by a shotgun-wielding vigilante. Given the headlines Donald Trump has generated by attacking immigration policy during the recent presidential race, the subject matter is certainly topical.
Stx Entertainment made a splash two weeks ago when it acquired another Toronto Film Festival release, »

Last season, original castmember and fan favorite Archie Panjabi left The Good Wife TV show. How will this development affect the series' storylines and ratings? Will they rise or continue to fall? Is this the year that the series is cancelled by CBS or will it be renewed for an eighth season instead? Stay tuned.

This season, the series also stars Matt Czuchry, Alan Cumming, Zach Grenier, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Christine Baranski, and Cush Jumbo.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around »

Going into the weekend, many box office prognosticators were wondering if director Ridley Scott's The Martian could break the October opening weekend record set two years ago by Gravity, which earned $55.7 million in its first weekend in theaters. As it turns out, The Martian gave a valiant effort, but came up just short, taking in an estimated $55 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Of course, the film is still in great shape, earning back nearly half of its $108 million budget after just three days in theaters.
The Martian was widely beloved by critics, earning a 94% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, opening in 3,831 theaters for an impressive $14,357 per-screen average. If these estimates hold true when the actual numbers roll in tomorrow, The Martian will have fell just $700,000 short of Gravity's October box office record, but it is still an impressive showing nonetheless. The Martian was the only new movie opening wide this weekend, »

Zack Snyder to television? But is this the right property to do so?
Fans of Watchmen should be thrilled as Collider reported on Thursday that HBO and director Zack Snyder have had discussions on doing a series based on the graphic novel. The original movie came out in 2008 and starred Billy Crudup, Patrick Wilson, Malin Akerman, Carla Gugino, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jackie Earle Haley.
Don’t think this is set in stone, Collider says, but there is some momentum towards a series happening.
“Preliminary discussions regarding ‘Watchmen’ have occurred but we have no additional information and no deals are in place”
Snyder directed Watchmen prior to becoming the head over the DC superhero universe with Man of Steel and the upcoming Batman v. Superman and Justice League. It is still unclear if Snyder would do any work outside of producing, but it is definitely an ambitious project to attempt. »

There’s a thin line between psychic and psychotic in “Solace,” a dark and corny serial-killer thriller delivered with enough conviction by a strong enough cast that the movie’s hokey premise — that the murderer, played by Colin Farrell, is targeting terminally ill individuals and “killing them with kindness” — actually starts to sound like a real psychological conundrum. Shot more than two years ago in Atlanta, but orphaned by Stateside distribs, the film acquired the reputation along the way of being a sequel to “Seven.” It isn’t, though like half the allegations made against its bad-boy star, the implication can only boost its notoriety, especially now that “Solace” has become an unfortunate victim of the Relativity bankruptcy — a setback that hasn’t thwarted its performance in several European territories, where a generally positive reception for this reasonably clever genre entry could eventually redeem its damaged-goods status back home.

See Also: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice classified PG-13 for violence and “sensuality”
Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

It was expected that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would get a PG-13 rating (the equivalent of a 12A here in the UK), but the reason for it is rather surprising.
According to the MPAA, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been awarded a PG-13 rating for, “intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.” Sensuality, eh? Wonder where that might come from…
So, we can expect the movie to get a 12A here in the UK from the BBFC.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on March 25th 2016 and sees Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Harry Lennix (General Swanwick), Michael Shannon »

Perhaps the best that can be said for Mikael Hafstrom’s “Shanghai” is that in spite the five years it sat on the shelf before puttering into U.S. theaters this weekend, it’s far from the type of hide-the-children disaster that its release strategy would seem to suggest. The bad news: It’s nonetheless not that hard to imagine why the Weinstein Co. was in no particular hurry to get it out. Despite boasting a lush period setting and plenty of recognizable stars from five different major territories, this derivative, ploddingly plotted WWII-set thriller goes through all the motions of an old-school wartime spy pic with plenty of technical competence but zero panache, the filmic equivalent of a bar band working through one last Skynyrd cover just before last call. Released in most Asian markets back in 2010, the film seems highly unlikely to add much to its tally in belated Stateside release. »

Although there is only one new movie opening in wide release, plus another that expands nationwide, it is already shaping up to be a big weekend at the box office, following the record-breaking numbers put up by Hotel Transylvania last week. The animated sequel took in $47.5 million during its first few days, the highest opening ever in the month of September. But this weekend, Ridley Scott's The Martian is looking to set the box office on fire. According to the projections at BoxOffice.com, the outer space thriller is eyeing a massive $52 million debut, although it will face some competition from Lionsgate's Sicario, which goes wide after an incredible run in limited release. Still, The Martian has a shot of breaking some fall box office records of its own, if it opens higher than these projections
The Martian is expected to open in approximately 3,750 theaters nationwide starting October 2, with »
