‘Birth of a Nation’ and ‘Girl on the Train’ Hit Box Office Tracking: How Will They Fare?

16 September 2016 5:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s still early to be betting on box office for the October 7-9 weekend, but observers are wondering just how much the controversy surrounding Nate Parker’s 17-year old rape charge will impact the wide opening of “The Birth of a Nation.”

Another question is how well “The Girl on the Train” will do in a similar slot as “Gone Girl” two years ago, but without the name-value benefit of David Fincher and Ben Affleck.

Three weeks before opening, “The Birth of a Nation” is tracking for a domestic opening weekend in the $9 million to $10 million range at 1,500-plus locations. That would be a respectable amount for an R-rated historical drama.

Universal’s mystery-drama “The Girl on the Train,” starring Emily Blunt, is likely to lead the weekend with as much as $30 million — though one tracking service placed its estimate closer to $18 million.

Fox Searchlight bought “The Birth of »

Reports of a Weak Market Are Greatly Exaggerated: Tiff Acquisition Market Heats Up as Distributors Claim Hot Titles

15 September 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Reports of a weak marketplace at the Toronto International Film Festival have been greatly exaggerated. After distributors held firm for the first week of Tiff, playing a waiting game while high-profile titles like “Jackie” starring Natalie Portman and “Colossal” starring Anne Hathaway found homes, activity has picked up with a flurry of deals, indicating the independent film market is still robust.

One of the first signs of life was Roadside Attractions’ acquisition of “Lady Macbeth,” director William Oldroyd’s critically celebrated Victorian tragedy starring 19-year-old newcomer Florence Pugh. A dark tale of a sexually frustrated young woman (Pugh) stuck in a loveless marriage in 19th century England, the film was among the first Tiff titles to find a home despite having no high-profile celebrity stars. Pugh is attracting rave reviews »

Toronto: Fox Searchlight in Final Talks for ‘A United Kingdom’ (Exclusive)

15 September 2016 8:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox Searchlight is in final negotiations to buy North American rights to “A United Kingdom,” Variety has learned.

Amma Asante’s romantic drama centers on the political blowback that follows an African prince’s marriage to a London office worker. The mixed-race couple encounters prejudice over a union that challenged the system of apartheid.

The film received solid reviews when it screened at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, with many critics praising the performances of leads David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike.

Variety’s Peter Debruge faulted the picture as “overly simplistic,” but The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw hailed is as a “gutsy movie” in a four-star notice.

Pathe handled sales of the film. Footage from the film screened for buyers several months ago, and the reaction was mixed. A shorter cut, with roughly 20 minutes trimmed, screened at Toronto, which is the version that Searchlight will release.

Scott Cooper’s ‘Hostiles’ Finds New Frontiers Outside the Studio System

14 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“You think John Ford ever had to deal with this?” asks director Scott Cooper, gazing at a gnarly gray sky over northern New Mexico. A lightning strike was reported within six miles of the location shoot for his new movie, “Hostiles,” sparking an Osha-mandated, 30-minute production stoppage. It’s just an occupational hazard that comes with shooting during monsoon season.

A period Western with nods to Ford classics like “She Wore a Yellow Ribbon” and “The Searchers,” the picture is filming here at Ghost Ranch — 21,000 acres of God’s country, 60 miles north of Santa Fe — where one-time resident Georgia O’Keeffe painted canvases with images of the mesa that towers in the distance. Though lightening strikes are unpredictable, one thing is certain: Cooper and his cast and crew are far from the artifice of Hollywood back lots.

[Tiff Review] A United Kingdom

13 September 2016 12:26 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Who knew the power of love ultimately won independence for the democratic republic of Botswana? I sure didn’t. But this is the based-on-a-true-story film writer Guy Hibbert and director Amma Asante have delivered with A United Kingdom. It’s a tale of racial segregation, politically driven cowardice, and the heart prevailing over fear as two kindred spirits choose to write their own destinies. Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) couldn’t know the London-based missionary event her sister dragged her to would change her life forever. Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) couldn’t have predicted in his wildest dreams the ramifications for his homeland Bechuanaland that asking her to dance would inflict. And it’s doubtful anyone would expect his amateur boxer/philosopher to reveal himself as an African prince.

Ruth and Seretse’s romance is one we’ve seen before: an interracial relationship alienating family, earning bigoted remarks in public, and showing how love trumps all. »

‘A United Kingdom’ review [Tiff ’16]

11 September 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A United Kingdom review: Tiff ’16 plays host to the world premiere of Amma Assante’s true story of Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams.

A United Kingdom review by Paul Heath, Tiff ’16.

Amma Assante follows up her impressive period piece Belle with this true story of Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams, an interracial couple who married in the face of fierce opposition from both their families and the British and South African governments in a post-war 1948.

David Oyelowo portrays Seretse, the future king of Bechuanaland (modern-day Botswana) who meets an attractive young office worker (Rosamund Pike‘s Ruth Williams) in London where he is away studying. The two spark an intense relationship from an almost immediate attraction, much to the dismay of Williams’ father George (Nicholas Lyndhurst) and Seretse’s uncle (back in Bechuanaland, who is setting things up for his nephew to take charge once he has finished his education. »

‘A United Kingdom’ Review: David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike Bring Historical Love Story to Satisfying Life – Tiff Review

10 September 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If Amma Asante’s newest historical romance “A United Kingdom” — like her breakout “Belle,” the film is based on a true story and rooted in real emotion — is hamstrung by anything, it’s the necessity of Guy Hibbert’s script (based on Susan Williams’ book, “Color Bar”) to zip over the early, blooming days of the film’s central love story and buckle down on the tough stuff. Asante’s film, unlike other, more “traditional” Hollywood love stories, isn’t interested in the joys of falling in love so much as the ability to stay in love against heartbreaking odds.

The result is a rich, stirring look at one of modern society’s most enduring — and yes, inspirational — marriages, underpinned by political machinations that remain all too relevant.

Picking up in 1947, with the world still jarred by the events or World War II and exhilarated that they are finally over, »
