1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Meryl Streep addressed the issue of diversity at the Berlin Film Festival during a press conference on Thursday. Streep was asked if she, as the head of the festival’s jury, felt that she understood movies that came from North African and Arab countries. “There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally,” Streep said, according to the Washington Post. “Berliners, we’re all Africans, really.” Also Read: Halle Berry Calls Oscars Diversity Problem 'Heartbreaking' Streep leads the seven-person jury, which consists of British actor Clive Owen; British »

Lionsgate snag UK rights to Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian’

3 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Lionsgate UK have announced that they have scooped up the UK rights to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets from writer/director Luc Besson. The film – which stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, along with Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, Herbie Hancock and Kris Wu – started principal photography in Paris on January 6th 2016.

Besson based his screenplay on the French science fiction comic series “Valerian and Laureline” created by artist Jean-Claude Mézières and writer Pierre Christin, which tells the story of Valerian and Laureline, special operatives for the government of the human territories charged with maintaining order throughout the universe.

Zygi Kamasa, Lionsgate UK CEO, said:

We are thrilled to add such a unique and exciting project to our 2017 slate. Luc is a one-of-a-kind filmmaker and has a visionary way to bring stories to life, so we can’t wait to see how he brings Valerian to life for cinemagoers. »

Meryl Streep on Diversity at Berlin Film Festival: ‘We’re All Africans’

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hot button industry topics of equality and diversity were on the agenda at the opening day, jury press conference of the Berlin Film Festival.

“I have no idea how to run a jury,” said Meryl Streep, this year’s jury president, in response to the inevitable media question about criteria for judging the competition movies. “But in the end I have two votes and (the other jury members) only have one each.”

Berlin has a reputation for being a politically minded festival, and Streep did not shy away from promoting an agenda of equality and inclusion. “(Equality) of genders, races, ethnicities, religion,” she opined. “This jury is also evidence that women are included and can even dominate – that is unusual in bodies that make decisions.”

When asked if she understood films from the Arab world and North Africa, Streep said: “There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, »

The Knick season 2 episode 5 review: Whiplash

Can human processes be reduced to a system of switches and controls? The Knick's John Thackery thinks so...

This review contains spoilers.

2.5 Whiplash

Has there ever been a more perfect distillation of Dr John Thackery’s medical worldview than the one presented in his demonstration of the modular functions of the brain? The idea that every human process, whether physical, mental or emotional, could be reduced to a simple process of switches and controls, has enormous appeal to a man who likes to reduce the most complicated of problems to the simplest of puzzles and, by doing so, exercise mastery of biology itself. Clive Owen’s performance in this scene was superb, injecting his character with all the swagger of some glassy-eyed god and thereby implying the hubris that must be answered by failure.

If it turns out that excising a tiny part of a person »

Pathe Boards Guillaume Canet’s ‘Rock n’ Roll’ With Marion Cotillard, Johnny Hallyday

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

Berlin — Pathe has come on board Guillaume Canet’s “Rock n’ Roll,” a comedy starring Marion Cotillard and famed French singer Johnny Hallyday.

The film, which is currently shooting in and around Paris, is being produced by Alain Attal’s Les Productions du Tresor, the company behind all of Canet’s movies.

“Rock n’ Roll” marks the first collaboration between Pathe and Canet as a director. Pathe is co-producing, handling international sales and will distribute in France. The movie also signals Canet’s return to France after making his English-language debut with “Blood Ties.”

Attal said Canet has requested that the plot of the film remain under wraps. The script of “Rock n’ Roll” is co-written by Philippe Lefebvre, who previously co-penned Canet’s debut “Mon Idole,” a dark comedy, and “Tell No One,” a tense thriller based on Harlan Coben’s novel — both of which were critically acclaimed and commercially successful. »

14 of the fakest celebrity retirements in history

5 February 2016 4:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s been nearly three years since Steven Soderbergh retired from filmmaking with the release of Side Effects. Then news broke this week that he’s making a film called Logan Lucky starring Channing Tatum. Even those years of retirement from filmmaking weren’t really a retirement: Soderbergh kept busy directing for the small screen, with HBO movie Behind the Candelabra and both season 1 and 2 of Clive Owen show The Knick. But he contended that he was done with projects for the big screen, telling The Hollywood Reporter as recently as this past October, “I don't have an interest in making another theatrical film unless my attitude changes or the business changes.” Well, his attitude must have changed, if we’re to believe reports of this new project with Tatum and Michael Shannon. The Ocean’s Eleven and Traffic director is one of many entertainers to declare they’re retiring, »

The Knick season 2 episode 4 review: Wonderful Surprises

Satisfyingly, The Knick's latest episode focuses more on its characters' personal lives than their social contexts...

This review contains spoilers.

2.4 Wonderful Surprises

So much of The Knick is concerned with melodrama and the sudden revelation of unpleasant truths that it’s rather refreshing to experiences surprises of a somewhat more wonderful nature. We begin this episode still dealing with the consequences of last week’s big reveal and, for a time, it seems as though it’s going to be business as usual. The reasons for Algernon’s flit from Paris, and possibly even for his refusal to even mention Opal before now, start to become clear as her paranoid, possessive suspicions flicker into view. Of course, being paranoid doesn’t mean that you’re wrong and Opal’s Sherlocking of her husband is entirely accurate, which is all the more painful for her husband. It »
