Raven Banner flies with ‘Sky Sharks’

30 April 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Toronto-based Raven Banner Entertainment has secured worldwide rights to the mutant shark-infested, Nazi zombie creature feature and will start sales in Cannes.

Marc Fehse directed Sky Sharks and the cast includes Robert Lasardo, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Nick Principe, Lar Park-Lincoln and Lynn Lowry.

Production is set for January 2016 on the story of a team of Antarctic geologists who uncover an experimental Nazi weapon and enlist an elite team to eradicate the monstrous threat.

James Fler and Michael Paszt negotiated rights for Raven Banner with producer Yazid Benfeghoul.

“Our relationship with B-films goes a long way back,” said Fehse. “It was about time we made one of our own that uniquely blends CG with quality practical effects.

“Although you might not see this one coming, we actually intend to take our story and the audience seriously while having a blast at the same time.” »

Faith-Based Drama ‘Little Boy’ Gets Belittled By Critics: ‘Shameless,’ ‘Manipulative,’ ‘Stupid’

24 April 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The studio description of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey‘s new faith-based film “Little Boy” calls it “powerful and moving,” but the majority of critics prefer adjectives like “manipulative,” “shameless” and “deeply stupid.” The drama set in a sleepy California town during World War II has a mere 12 percent approval rating from a total of 33 critics counted, so far, on Rotten Tomatoes. Alejandro Monteverde (“Bella”) directed the PG-13 family-oriented film about eight-year-old Pepper (Jakob Salvati), nicknamed Little Boy for his short stature, who befriends elderly Hashimoto (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), a Japanese-American man regularly tormented by racist townspeople, while waiting for his. »

Little Boy – The Review

23 April 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

So, what’s the cure for overloading on the all-depressing news (now bombarding you with 24-hour cable channels along with the “interweb”)? Well, a time machine would be great. Imagine pulling the lever on Rod Taylor’s 1960 model or Doc Brown’s DeLorean-based 1985 sweet ride (thirty years, can’t be!). Too bad they don’t exist, but buying a ticket at the multiplex can whisk you away for a couple of hours or so, right? The feel-good nostalgia flick has become almost as popular a genre as the haunted house spook show or the sports “underdog” story. The 1940’s have proved a most popular destination for, well over forty years (remember Summer Of 42 back in 71’?). It’s been the setting for a very recent Oscar winner, The Imitation Game, and even a big superhero blockbuster with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hey, we just visited it two weeks ago in »

Film Review: ‘Little Boy’

15 April 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

God helps those who help not only themselves, but also the less fortunate in their midst — or so goes the tidy moral logic of “Little Boy,” a cloying and callous WWII-era parable about how faith can move mountains, overcome prejudice, and even rob death of its sting. Making an ambitious follow-up to his Toronto audience award-winning debut, “Bella” (2007), writer-director Alejandro Monteverde brings a sledgehammer touch to the story of a small-town runt who hopes that his string of good deeds will bring his beloved father home from the front lines. Insofar as subtlety is rarely deemed a virtue where the vast majority of “faith-based” entertainment is concerned, this relentlessly manipulative drama just might connect with its target audience, even if saddled with a PG-13 rating that exec producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett lobbied unsuccessfully to have downgraded to a more family-friendly PG.

To its credit, the movie (which Open »

'Man with the Iron Fists 2' Interview with RZA | Exclusive

14 April 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After spending a lifetime watching and studying classic martial arts films, Wu Tang Clan's RZA got to finally make his own kung fu movie with 2012's The Man with the Iron Fists, which he directed, co-wrote, produced and starred in. The actor-filmmaker returns to reprise his role as the title character Thaddeus, while co-writing and producing the sequel The Man with the Iron Fists 2. I had the good fortune to speak with the actor filmmaker over the phone, before this sequel arrives on Blu-ray and DVD April 14 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

The sequel picks up long after the events of The Man with the Iron Fists, where Thaddeus is found near death, literally drifting past a 19th Century village where he is saved by a miner's (Dustin Nguyen) family. As he heals from his wounds, Thaddeus expresses his desire to find peace, but it becomes quickly clear »

13 April 2015 8:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When RZA – co-founder of Wu-Tang Clan – stepped behind the lens for the first time back in 2012, he introduced the moviegoing audience to a pulse-pounding actioner in the form of The Man with the Iron Fists.

Picking up the pieces from its predecessor, the martial arts follow-up will once again center around Thaddeus (played by the aforementioned RZA), who finds himself drawn into battle once more despite his best efforts to put his violent past behind him.

Rounding out the international ensemble are Dustin Nguyen (22 Jump Street), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (47 Ronin), Eugenia Yuan (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend), Pim Bubear (Ninja: Shadow of a Tear »

Bring on a Valiant Shadowman Movie

31 March 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I’m sure all Valiant fans are aware of the recent announcement of a Valiant and Dmg relationship established to bring Valiant characters to TV and the big screen. Prominent in the press release is Shadowman, a character that isn’t really prominent (like he’s not even around at all) in current Valiant comics and I think if we took a poll would probably rank as the most disappointing of the regular comic releases, barring the possibility of Quantum & Woody which admittedly is a bit of an oddball title to classic Valiant fans. I think Shadowman, even the one we saw in the comics recently, works for me seamlessly in the way some of the other titles don’t to a movie audience.

What we’ve heard over and over from Valiant is their awareness of the Marvel plan. It depends on how literal we want to take that, »

Little Boy Trailer – Do You Believe You Can Do This?

5 March 2015 10:23 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

On April 24th, sappy, beautiful goodness is going to see if it can’t push through, and get your heart to grow three sizes in something like 90 minutes.

Little Boy, an inventive yarn in the grand tradition of just generally wild and impossible yarns, tells the story of a boy who just wants his father to come home from World War II, and really, really believes he can bring him back himself.

With an amazing cast, including: Emily Watson, Michael Rappaport, Tom Wilkinson, Jakob Salvati, and Ben Chaplin, and direction by Alejandro Monteverde (the fantastic, and woefully under-appreciated Bella), Little Boy is poised to be the surprise hit of early part of the year.

Make sure you check the trailer above, and mark your calendar.

Little Boy is a powerful and moving film about a little boy who is willing to do whatever it takes to bring his dad home from World War II alive. »
