3rd Paris Images Trade Show: Attendance Surges, Shoots in France Bounce Back After Attacks, Lured by 30% Tax Rebate

5 February 2016 10:06 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Wrapping Saturday, Feb. 6, attendance at the Third Paris Images Trade Show ramped up strongly this year. One example: Paris Images Location Expo recorded a 25% increase in exhibitors and nearly a 50% hike in participants.

Notwithstanding the terrorist attacks in November 2015, film production levels in the Paris region have quickly bounced back and are expected to attain record levels in 2016 as a result of the new 30% rate in force for the domestic and international tax rebate programs.

Major shoots confirmed for 2016 in the Paris area include Indian feature film “Befikre,” which has a 13-week shoot, with 10 weeks in Paris. There will also be a few days of shooting on “Fifty Shades Darker.” Christopher Nolan will lense “Dunkirk” in the North of France in May, and Neil Jordan will shoot the TV series “Rivieira” in the South of France. An undisclosed major U.S. TV series is planning to shoot in the »

Christopher Nolan Reteaming With Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema For ‘Dunkirk’

5 February 2016 8:38 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As Christopher Nolan prepares for an early summer shoot of his World War II drama Dunkirk, he’s busy filling out his cast and crew. With composer Hans Zimmer returning, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy are filling out the ensemble and many unknown newcomers are still waiting to be cast. Set to shoot in IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film, many have wondered if longtime collaborator Wally Pfister would return or perhaps he’d reteam with Interstellar‘s Hoyte van Hoytema.

It looks like it will be the latter, as the announcement that Hoytema has deservedly joined the American Society of Cinematographers includes a note that he is “currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, with whom he first collaborated on Interstellar.” Following his work on Spectre, Her, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let the Right One In, and more, we look forward to how he pulls »

Looking back at The Five Deadly Venoms

The Five Deadly Venoms is a martial arts classic, that comes with one of the best opening sequences we've seen...

You don't need to do much more than whisper "I had five pupils..." to send shivers up the spines of most martial arts fans. It's a line that kicks off one of the most dazzling opening sequences in the history of cinema, as the dying Master of the Poison Clan explains to his sixth and final pupil that there were five more before him, each trained in a unique fighting style.

The Five Deadly Venoms wear masks that hide their identity and represent their particular style. There's the Centipede, the Snake, the Scorpion, the Lizard and the Toad, and the ways in which they fight draw from each animal's characteristics. As the Master explains, Centipede and Snake know one another's identity, as do Lizard and Toad. None of the others know Scorpion. »

Sony’s Zorro Reboot Will Have “Near-Future” Setting, Gravity Scribe Jonás Cuarón On Board To Direct

4 February 2016 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Citing Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight as inspiration, all signs pointed to Sony gunning for a post-apocalyptic aesthetic for Zorro Reborn. In the time that’s lapsed since we last caught wind of the studio’s masked bandit, it appears the project has been given a total overhaul, with plans now in place for the reboot to be rooted in the near-future.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that Gravity co-writer Jonás Cuarón will write and direct the remake now formally known as Z. It’s by no means the only property to get the futuristic treatment under Sony, given the company is also whisking Robin Hood and his fellow men in tights into the not-so-distant future for a “revisionist” and “gritty” and “reimagining” and just about every other buzzword that comes to mind.

As for Zorro – sorry, Z – Cuarón is reportedly eyeing a summer start date, »

5 Great Films From the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival

4 February 2016 9:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Here Are the Winners of the 2016 Slamdance Film Festival The Slamdance Film Festival may take place in parallel to Sundance, but it's not a cultural behemoth like the bigger Park City gathering. But the festival, founded in 1995, which has helped to spur the careers of Christopher Nolan and Lena Dunham, is replete with promising shoestring films and young performers on the cusp of critical recognition. Here are five highlights from this year's recently-concluded lineup. "Fursonas" Director Dominic Rodrigeuz offers an intimate look at the secretive subculture of Fursonas (a portmanteau of "furry" and "persona"), or "Furries," plushy anthropomorphic avatars donned by role-players. Fursona conventions date back to the early eighties, though members (understandably) try to keep the group out of the public eye. As with most of the films of the list, eccentricity of character plays heavily into the film's appeal, though no other film of »

Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Remember director Atom Egoyan: "Wagner is sort of embedded into the actual score at one point." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

The last time I went to the restaurant in the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue was to meet Jane Pollard and Iain Forsyth for their film 20,000 Days On Earth and Nick Cave stopped by for a greeting. Atom Egoyan's terrifically paced thriller Remember, written by Benjamin August, starring Christopher Plummer and Martin Landau with Bruno Ganz, Heinz Lieven, Dean Norris and Jürgen Prochnow is structured in the spirit of a cumulative tale. We spoke about the residual idea of The Sound Of Music, North By Northwest and Slavoj Žižek, meeting Son Of Saul director László Nemes in Sarajevo, Christopher Nolan's Memento and Leviticus.

Watch footage from The Dark Knight cancelled video game

4 February 2016 1:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In 2005, Electronic Arts published a video game version of Christopher Nolan’s epic superhero reboot Batman Begins. It got mixed reviews, however due to Batman’s evident popularity and the hype surrounding the release of Nolan’s sequel The Dark Knight, another video game tie-in was warranted and EA and Pandemic Studios began working hard to get the game finished before the movie’s release.

That didn’t happen for various reasons and this video courtesy of DidYouKnowGaming? sheds some light on the specifics behind why the game was cancelled. The video also has some footage and concepts from The Dark Knight game.

The Dark Knight: footage emerges from cancelled videogame

There was supposed to be a videogame of The Dark Knight - and footage from the cancelled Batman release has surfaced.

If you've ever wondered why we never got a video game adaptation of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight, Did You Know Gaming? has made the reasons pretty clear in a new video.

You might recall that back in 2008, just before the release of Nolan's highly anticipated sequel to Batman Begins (which did get a pretty bad video game adaptation), actor Gary Oldman let slip that he'd signed on to reprise his role as Jim Gordon in the upcoming Dark Knight video game, a secret that Pandemic Studios and Electronic Arts had yet to reveal to the public. 

Since then, fans have scrutinised the project and the reasons behind why The Dark Knight video game never saw the light of day (night?). This new video gives us those reasons, »

5 Reasons Man Of Steel Is Better Than You Think

3 February 2016 9:27 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After almost three long years of waiting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will finally hit theaters on March 25th. The film has become one of the most highly anticipated cinematic experiences of all time, but the enthusiasm of many seems somewhat dulled by their poor opinion of the movie.s predecessor: Man of Steel. Whether it.s Zack Snyder.s direction, the chaos and destruction of the film.s third act, or even the mere tone of the film, naysayers seem to constantly find new ways to call it a terrible movie. While there.s a degree of truth to of some these accusations, I am of the mindset that Man of Steel is a far better film than its detractors would ever give it credit for. Is it perfect? Of course not; not even Christopher Nolan.s The Dark Knight is a perfect movie. However, Man of Steel »

Watch: Sundance Talks With Werner Herzog, Charlie Kaufman, Da Pennebaker, Lena Dunham, And More

2 February 2016 9:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Sundance Film Festival has wrapped for another year, and as always, there was plenty to discuss on the film front (check out our 18 Best Films, 25 Breakthrough Filmmakers And Actors, and 6 Trends). However, outside the cinemas of Park City, there were some great talks being had between important filmmaking voices (such as Christopher Nolan and Colin Trevorrow), and we've collected a batch of conversations from Sundance that you'll want to make time for. Werner Herzog and Joshua Oppenheimer, "Anomalisa" duo Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson, Da Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, and Lena Dunham and Norman Lear are just some of the pairings from the Cinema Café. These generous hour-plus talks go deep, with some great insights spun from the casual atmosphere and setting. And there's even more with Melanie Lynskey and Imogen Poots, Keegan-Michael Key and Natasha Lyonne, Rebecca Hall and Michael Shannon, John Krasinski and Thomas Middleditch, and Chelsea Handler. »

2016 Forecast as Record Year for Foreign Shoots in France

1 February 2016 10:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — In the wake of France’s decision to increase the rate on its Tax Rebate for International Productions (Trip) rebate scheme from 20% to 30%, effective from the start of this year, a series of high-profile foreign productions have booked shoots in Gaul in 2016, including Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” lensing in Northern France in May, Neil Jordan’s 10-part Cote d’Azur-based TV crime series “Riviera,” and a yet undisclosed major U.S. TV Series expected to start production in the Fall.

Other confirmed shoots for 2016 include Clay Jeter’s sci-fi pic “Io.”

France’s domestic tax rebate scheme, for official French productions, has also increased from 20% to 30%.

“The increase to 30% is a huge change,” says line producer John Bernard of Peninsula Film. “It’s been further amplified by the rising value of the dollar. It’s been absolutely essential.”

“30% is a wonderful new development,” says line producer Raphael Benoliel, of Firstep. »

Pope Francis to Make Acting Debut in ‘Beyond the Sun’

1 February 2016 10:03 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pope Francis will play himself in the new religious movie “Beyond the Sun,” marking his acting debut and the first time that a pope has appeared in a feature film.

“Beyond the Sun” — from Ambi Pictures — is a family adventure based on the Gospels. Pope Francis asked the filmmakers to make a movie that communicated Jesus’ message to children.

Ambi co-founders Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi will finance and produce the film. Graciela Rodriguez wrote the screenplay and will co-produce with Gabriel Leybu. Monsignor Eduardo Garcia will be Pope Francis’ advisor.

All profits from the film will be donated to Argentinean charities El Alemendro and Los Hogares de Cristo, which aid at-risk children and young adults.

Iervolino made his first film in his hometown of Cassino, Italy, at age 15.

“Our excitement and gratitude toward His Holiness, Pope Francis participating in this film is beyond words,” he said. “This is »

Fury Road stunt coordinator Guy Norris on SAG win and Furiosa sequels

31 January 2016 8:59 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Mad Max: Fury Road Action Unit Director/Stunt Coordinator Guy Norris.

Fury Road's action unit director and stunt coordinator Guy Norris is riding high.

His team, tallying over 150 performers, took out the SAG Stunt Awards in Los Angeles yesterday, a result which should have suprised precisely no-one.

Norris is currently in Wellington, prepping Paramount/Dreamworks' Ghost in the Shell, which begins filming in less than two weeks.

Norris was told of his win by his son, who saw it on social media. The award is a nice capper to a career that began with Mad Max 2 in 1981.

Norris was 21 at the time, and already a stunt veteran.

"I started doing stunt work in Evel Knievel-like live shows when I was 18", he said.

"I did that with an older stuntman called Frank Lennon. He was one of the last stuntmen going around doing thrill shows. You'd crash cars, you'd run around on fire, »
