Venice Film Festival Reveals First Slate of 2016 Titles, Including ‘Voyage of Time,’ ‘The Bad Batch,’ ‘Jackie’ and ‘Nocturnal Animals’

28 July 2016 4:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Is there a best picture winner in the bunch? The Venice Film Festival has unveiled its 2016 lineup, including both in competition and out of competition offerings, and with the festival’s strong track record of debuting recent best picture winners — from “Spotlight” to “Birdman” — there might be another big winner among the slate’s ranks.

As had been previously announced, the festival will open with Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land,” which will later hit Toronto (and, presumably, also Telluride). The festival will close with Antoine Fuqua’s “The Magnificent Seven,” which kicks off its own festival run days earlier, when it will open Tiff.

On the heels of the Toronto International Film Festival announcement, this year’s slate for the Venice International Film Festival has arrived — and it’s a fantastic-looking line-up. Outside some of the Tiff titles (La La Land, Arrival, Frantz, The Age of Shadows, Nocturnal Animals, etc.), they’ll have the world premiere of one of our most-anticipated films of the year: Terrence Malick‘s documentary Voyage of Time (the 90-minute Cate Blanchett-narrated version).

Also among the premieres are Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow-up to A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Bad Batch, Mel Gibson‘s return to the director’s chair, Hacksaw Ridge, Derek Cianfrance‘s The Light Between Oceans, Pablo Larrain‘s Natalie Portman-led Jackie, as well as new films from Andrew Dominik, Lav Diaz, Ulrich Seidl, Emir Kusturica, and more. Check out the line-up below and return for our coverage.

Venice Film Festival Lineup Includes Mel Gibson, Tom Ford, Terrence Malick Movies

28 July 2016 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival’s 73rd edition will feature a batch of star-studded English-language dramas directed by Mel Gibson, Tom Ford, Pablo Larrain, Antoine Fuqua and Damian Chazelle, as well as promising new titles by big-name international auteurs such as Emir Kusturica, Francois Ozon, and Wim Wenders, plus plenty of potential discoveries.

This year’s selections look likely to reinforce the Lido’s status as a discerning and effective awards-season platform. Last year, the festival launched “Spotlight,” and, before that, “Birdman” and “Gravity” — all of which went on to win multiple Oscars.

The Gibson-directed “Hacksaw Ridge” stars Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, an army medic who never carried a gun during World War II. Doss was the first conscientious objector in U.S. history to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. The topical drama, which is screening out-of-competition, is slated for a Nov. 4 U.S. release via Lionsgate. »

Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ Villeneuve’s ‘Arrival,’ new Kusturica Headed for Venice (Exclusive)

21 July 2016 9:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — With one week to go before the 73rd Venice Film Festival reveals its lineup, two U.S. titles with awards buzz — Tom Ford-directed thriller “Nocturnal Animals” and Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi pic “Arrival” — are virtually assured a Lido launch.

Another hot U.S. title, Antoine Fuqua’s Western “The Magnificent Seven,” could also be headed to the fest, but is more uncertain.

And though festival artistic director Alberto Barbera is still making last-minute decisions, new features from prominent European auteurs Emir Kusturica (“On The Milky Road”) and Wim Wenders (“The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez”) are also very likely to be among the contenders vying for a Golden Lion, as is the latest work from French director Stephane Brize (“Une Vie”).

Word on what pics will surface on the Lido is particularly muted this year, indicating the usual uncertainty about titles being ready and Barbera’s down-to-the-wire decision-making.

Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” is gearing up to make a big splash at this year’s Comic-Con. Before it makes its way to the annual convention, Entertainment Weekly has a couple of new images and information on the Warner Bros. film.

In the latest photos, Jude Law is seen as the villain Vortigern, who possesses “a set of deadly magical powers” that he uses to take the throne and murder his brother, Arthur’s father Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana).

Pope Francis Names Former Fox Correspondent Greg Burke as Spokesman

11 July 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rome — Pope Francis on Monday named former Fox News correspondent Greg Burke as his spokesman, marking the first time a U.S. citizen has held the post, which is crucial to shaping and spreading the papal message around the world.

Francis also appointed Spanish radio reporter Paloma Garcia Ovejero as his deputy spokesperson. She is the first woman to hold such a senior position within the Vatican communications hierarchy.

Burke, 56, is a member of the conservative Opus Dei movement. He takes over from the Rev. Federico Lombardi, who is 73 and, like Francis, a Jesuit. Lombardi had been Vatican spokesman for a decade.

Pope John Paul II’s longtime spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, was also a member of Opus Dei, the organization portrayed in Dan Brown’s bestselling potboiler “The Da Vinci Code” as being at the root of an international Catholic conspiracy.

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Burke joined Fox in Rome in 2001. He left the conservative »

Directed by Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty), the eight-episode series was produced by Italian outfit Wildside and executive produced by Carole Scotta and Caroline Benjo of Haut et Court, who are both delegates at this year’s Jerusalem Film Festival.

“[Sorrentino] is a film-maker who dares to take risks, who fearlessly and with his customary creative and innovative spirit tackles the language of television series,” said Venice festival director Alberto Barbera.

The Young Pope will air on Sky Atlantic starting in October in Italy, the UK, Germany, Ireland and Austria, and on Canal+ in France. »

Vivendi’s Bolloré Suggests He’ll Quit Canal Plus’ Supervisory Board

27 June 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Vincent Bollore, the controversial boss of media conglomerate Vivendi, strongly suggested Monday that he would soon step down from the supervisory board of pay-tv service Canal Plus, which Vivendi owns.

At a Canal Plus news conference, Bollore was asked to confirm whether he was on his way out of Canal Plus’ supervisory board, following rumors to that effect in the French press over the weekend.

“I will chair Vivendi’s board until Feb. 17, 2022. At Canal Plus, I don’t need to be much present,” said Bollore, just a few days after responding to questions in the French Senate about his allegedly overbearing influence on the editorial content of Canal Plus. Leaks have suggested that Arnaud de Puyfontaine, CEO of Vivendi, might replace Bollore as chair of Canal Plus’ supervisory board. Puyfontaine declined to comment.

Oscar-winner Meryl Streep to also attend this year’s festival.

Oscar-winning actor Tom Tanks is to attend the 11th Rome Film Fesival (Oct 13-26), where he will receive the festival’s lifetime achievement award.

First Trailer For Andrea Arnold’s Cannes Winner ‘American Honey’

21 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up Wuthering Heights early this decade, Fish Tank director Andrea Arnold is finally back with American Honey, which picked up the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (and we also named it one of the best of the festival). Starring newcomer Sasha Lane, as well as Shia Labeouf and Riley Keough, it follows teenager who gets caught up with a traveling magazine sales crew as she ventures through the Midwest. Shot once again by Robbie Ryan, it looks like a vibrant drama judging by the first trailer, which A24 has released today.

We said in our review, “European directors have often faltered when crossing the Atlantic. Billy Wilder and Wim Wenders found things to say where Paolo Sorrentino could not. American Honey is certainly the former. Based on a 2007 article from the New York Times, it’s a backwater American road movie directed by an Englishwoman, »
