Natalie Portman on Making ‘Jane Got a Gun’: ‘There Was an Obstacle Every Hour, Every Day’

28 January 2016 12:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a bevy of problems — a director who quits on the first day of production, a series of cast changes, conflicting script approvals, legal battles and the loss of a distributor — the Weinstein Company premiered Western drama “Jane Got a Gun” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on Wednesday evening. Natalie Portman, who produced the film and stars as the title character, Jane Hammond, made a grand entrance at the intimate screening presented by the Cinema Society — where she admitted to Variety that the production was “stressful,” but has made her a “stronger and braver” filmmaker.

“This was the most challenging movie I’ve ever been a part of. There was an obstacle every hour, every day,” Portman, 34, told Variety on the red carpet. “It was interesting that all the problems we went through were parallel to the obstacles that characters in the movie go through. You »

Strike Back: saluting a top action TV show

With plenty of macho fights, practical stunts and shoot-outs, Strike Back was an uncomplicated action TV show par excellence...

Action series Strike Back is destined to never be included in the pantheon of great TV shows. While The Sopranos or Breaking Bad are held in such high regard for their superlative writing, acting and drama, Strike Back will instead be remembered for the kick-ass action, gratuitous nudity and excellent chemistry between the lead actors.  

For fans of the show, that’s a good enough legacy.

So what is it about Strike Back – which can best be described as the lovechild of 24 and a Cannon Group action movie – that works so well? In this case it might just the very thing that keeps it off the 'Greatest TV Shows Ever' lists; its simplicity. For the most part the show is a meat-and-potatoes action thriller, containing all the elements »

Thomas Vinterberg to Direct ‘Kursk’ Submarine Movie for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp

21 January 2016 7:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp has hired Danish director Thomas Vinterberg to direct its “Kursk” movie based on the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster, in which 118 Russians perished.

EuropaCorp had hired Danish director Martin Zandvliet in August to direct “Kursk” from a script by “Saving Private Ryan” screenwriter Robert Rodat, based on Robert Moore’s book “A Time to Die.” Zandvliet is no longer attached.

The Kursk sunk during a Russian naval exercise in the Barents Sea after explosions within the submarine. The Russian government refused help from foreign governments for five days before agreeing to aid from the British and Norwegian governments.

The Russian Navy initially asserted that the sinking had been caused by a collision with another vessel but the government eventually admitted that the cause was a torpedo explosion in the submarine.

EuropaCorp is developing “Valerian” with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne starring. Its slate includes “Shut In,” starring Naomi Watts, »

5 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Just when you thought it was safe to disconnect your DVR, the scripted television landscape again becomes crowded with essential viewing material. With the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour upon us and kicking off Tuesday from the Langham hotel in Pasadena, Calif., Variety’s TV staff chronicles the programs it’s most looking forward to in 2016.

American Crime” (ABC): Jan. 6

Coming off of a slew of Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for its freshman season, John Ridley’s dark ABC anthology is back with a new storyline and new characters set among a rattling high school male rape accusation. With strong, fresh cast members (“Falling Skies” alum Connor Jessup playing the victim) and the return of Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton and Regina King in all new roles, the critically acclaimed drama hopes to see bigger ratings than its first run, which garnered rave reviews across the board for »

TV Review: ‘Colony’

4 January 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Given the critical and creative success of “Mr. Robot,” one would be forgiven for hoping USA’s next high-profile offering, the sci-fi drama “Colony,” would be similarly bracing and mold-breaking. “Colony” does have a few things going for it, most notably “Lost” veteran Josh Holloway as the patriarch of a family in post-invasion Los Angeles. But in general, this series is frustratingly patchy and generic — unwilling to grapple in any consistent way with the moral and political implications of its premise — and key elements of the story remain disappointingly underdeveloped. Pride of place is given to characters and relationships that don’t have much depth, despite the efforts of a capable cast and occasionally arresting action scenes. Like an alien shape-shifter, “Colony” keeps trying to morph into a fairly standard cop show with some espionage elements. In a stumbling effort to create enigmatic mysteries, it just ends up being vague. »
