Harry Potter in Japan: Harry’s Biggest and Craziest Fan in History

3 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Ok this video is an oldie but goodie. Part of the reason I’m posting it is because I, like many of you, tend to go through Harry Potter withdrawal from time to time. In any event, back in 2009, yes, that’s nearly a decade ago now, Daniel Radcliffe paid a visit to one of those zany shows in Japan. I can only tell you this. There’s no possible way he expected this to happen. To get a grasp as to how popular Harry Potter was at one point (and still is quite frankly) you need to look no further than

Behind the Scenes at the Variety Shutterstock Portrait Studio in Sundance (Video)

2 February 2016 6:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart, Lena Dunham, Kate Beckinsale, Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe and Spike Lee were among the actors and actresses that paid a visit to the Variety Shutterstock portrait studio over the course of 2016’s Sundance Film Festival.

Variety‘s chief photographer Michael Buckner strayed from a generic backdrop for this year’s studio, instead fashioning a rustic, industrial set that featured a stained pallet floor.

“Every event has its own pressures, even though it seems like it’s the same kind of product,” said Buckner of his inaugural experience shooting the Variety Studio.

“Actors and actresses know what they’re doing and that’s a big help, so they kind of do 20-30% of your job for you,” he admitted. “When an actor wants to do something, you don’t stop them because that one thing that they want to give you will always lead into something else.

Sundance: Looking Beyond the Winners’ Circle

2 February 2016 9:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: Well, I called it. Then again, who didn’t? Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” cemented its standing as the sensation of Sundance 2016 by winning the grand jury prize and audience award on Saturday night — an outcome that was hardly surprising, in light of recent double winners like “Precious,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Whiplash” and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” as well as the undeniable cultural weight that a film about slavery, featuring a black hero and told from a black filmmaker’s perspective, now carries. Later this year, when Fox Searchlight launches its not-so-secret weapon to prevent another #OscarsSoWhite, there will be plenty of opining (as there is already) that “The Birth of a Nation” is a cultural landmark but a far-from-great movie, one whose import and relevance overshadow some of its artistic shortcomings.

I’ve written plenty about Parker’s film, which strikes me »

Watch: Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano on the Farts and Brilliance of 'Swiss Army Man' (Sundance Exclusive)

1 February 2016 2:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No Sundance movie made a louder impression last week than Daniel Scheinart and Daniel Kwan's "Swiss Army Man." The filmmakers, known together as "The Daniels," rocked the festival to its core thanks to a farting corpse, a phallic compass and a handful of other unforgettable visuals. While their film ended up being the love-it-or-hate-it cult hit of the festival, it impressed enough people at A24 to be picked up for U.S. distribution and it blew away enough members of the Sundance jury to earn the filmmaking duo the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award.

Sundance Film Festival Awards Winners 2016 – The Birth Of A Nation

Well, Sundance has finally drawn to a close for another year and last night, the Sundance Film Festival Awards Winners were announced in Park City, Utah.

We’ve listed the Sundance Film Festival Awards Winners below, including an official synopsis supplied by the organisers, but the clear winner and toast of the festival this year was Nate Parker’s The Birth Of A Nation, the film that was picked up for a record-breaking $17.5 million earlier on this week. ‘Birth Of A Nation’ scored The U.S. Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award.

Elsewhere, Asif Kapadia presented the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Documentary to Sonita, a film about an 18-year-old who discovers that her family plans to sell her to an unknown husband for $9,000. The film also picked up Audience Award: World Cinema Documentary. The Audience Award: U.S. »

Sundance: ‘The Birth of a Nation’ Sweeps Top Prizes

30 January 2016 6:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The Birth of a Nation,” writer-director-star Nate Parker’s stirring drama about the life of Nat Turner and the slave rebellion he led in antebellum Virginia, won the grand jury prize and the audience award for American dramatic features at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday night. The film’s double-fisted victory sealed its standing as the sensation of the festival’s 2016 edition, following its record-shattering $17.5 million acquisition earlier in the week by Fox Searchlight.

This is the fourth year in a row that a single film has taken the top two prizes in the U.S. dramatic competition, following “Fruitvale Station” (2013), “Whiplash” (2014) and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” (2015). That general trend aside, many had anticipated precisely this outcome for “The Birth of a Nation,” whose rapturous reception on Monday seemed to chime with a number of issues affecting the culture in general and the film industry in particular. »

Daniel Radcliffe’s Rotting, Farting Corpse Claimed By A24: Deal For Sundance Polarizing Puzzler ‘Swiss Army Man’

29 January 2016 4:35 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

A24 has acquired North American rights to Swiss Army Man, the pic starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe (as a corpse) that directors Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert described as a “fart drama” during its premiere at Sundance last week. The film was the most polarizing of the festival, which says a lot considering that Sundance usually has their fair share of them. There were plenty of walkouts during the premiere screening, enough that Deadline and others wrote stories… »

'Swiss Army Man' and Daniel Radcliffe's Farting Corpse Head to A24

29 January 2016 3:26 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No Sundance movie premiered to as much love-it-or-hate-it buzz than Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert's "Swiss Army Man." While some people utterly despised the film and walked out of its screenings, others found much to praise, and the movie has since grown into some kind of instant cult film over the past week. Fortunately, audiences will eventually get to see what the fuss is about as A24 has picked up North American distribution rights.

A24 acquired North American distribution rights in a low seven-figure deal, beating out several other distributors. The company plans to release the film this summer, when it will serve as counter-programming to all the big-budget blockbusters that crowd theaters that time of year. Music video directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert directed the offbeat film, which was produced by Miranda Bailey, Lawrence Inglee, Lauren Mann, Amanda Marshall, »

Sundance: A24 Lands Daniel Radcliffe Corpse Movie ‘Swiss Army Man’ (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A24 has landed North American distribution rights to “Swiss Army Man,” starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, Variety has learned.

Several distributors had bid on and were circling the project. A24, which landed the film in the low seven-figure range, will give “Swiss Army Man” a robust theatrical release over the summer.

The film premiered at Sundance last Friday, where it became one of the festival’s most talked-about titles. The story about a man (Dano) who comes across a corpse (Radcliffe) that comes to life divided audiences. But it also received standing ovations in later screenings and good reviews from critics who liked the offbeat directorial debut from the music video duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

“Imagine ‘Cast Away’ meets ‘Weekend at Bernie’s,’ as directed by Michel Gondry,” wrote Variety chief international critic Peter Debruge. “The result represents not just independent cinema, but an emerging strand of »

Sundance 2016: 'Swiss Army Man' is Wacky, Whimsical & Very Unique

28 January 2016 7:06 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt about it - this is a film you're going to either love or hate. Swiss Army Man is one of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival's most divisive films, with some of my fellow critics walking out before they could even finish it. The film is unquestionably unique, I've never seen anything like it, and while it starts out totally wacky everything clicked for me about 30 minutes in. The film opens with Paul Dano playing a man stuck on a deserted island trying to hang himself. But before he can do so, a dead body in a suit (played by Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore. Attempting to ignore it, the body begins to fart, then before you know it he's riding this farting body like a jet ski back to land. I told you it's wacky, but actually quite fun. For the first 20 to 30 minutes, the film is a bit confusing, »

How I Shot That: Dp Larkin Seiple Explains How to Shoot an Action Film on an Indie Scale

27 January 2016 9:41 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: The 2016 Indiewire Sundance Bible: All the Reviews, Interviews and News Posted During The Festival Los Angeles-based cinematographer Larkin Seiple is building a resume around Sundance movies. After spending a few years shooting music videos, Seiple transitioned to features with last year's Kevin Bacon comedy-thriller "Cop Car," a major discovery from last year's Sundance midnight section. Now he's back with one of the stranger entries in the festival's U.S. competition, "Swiss Army Man," in which a marooned Paul Dano hauls around a talking corpse played by Daniel Radcliffe. The movie's unique setting and surreal events led to a number of technical challenges that Seiple happily confronted. The director of photography shows no signs of slowing down, having already wrapped the Miles Teller boxing movie "Bleed for This."  What camera lens did you use? We used Arri Alexa Xt with Cooke Anamorphic Lenses. We also used a Phantom High Speed. »
