Why Jimmy Fallon Was the ‘Obvious Choice’ to Host Golden Globes

15 December 2016 2:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jimmy Fallon has mastered the monologue as host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show” and now he’s ready to put his stamp on the Golden Globes on Jan. 8.

It will be the latest in a string of major awards shows to be guided by late-night hosts. ABC is handing the Oscar reins to Jimmy Kimmel, who had also hosted the Primetime Emmys last September for the network, while James Corden, who hosted the Tonys for CBS last June, is on board for the Grammys.

But while Kimmel and Corden have hosted top-drawer awards shows on multiple occasions (as did other late-night hosts including Conan O’Brien and Jon Stewart before them), this is only Fallon’s second major awards show gig, and his first since guiding the Primetime Emmys on NBC in 2010.

Jimmy Fallon in primetime is pretty rare game,” says Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and reality, who »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 December 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did. »

FremantleMedia Moves Into High-End Drama With ‘The Young Pope,’ ‘American Gods’

17 October 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Production giant FremantleMedia has long been associated with hit reality franchises such as “The X Factor” and “Got Talent” and soaps like Australia’s “Neighbors.” But a few years ago, the company made a flying leap onto the high-end drama bandwagon, with CEO Cecile Frot-Coutaz pledging to increase revenue from scripted series to 50% from 30% in five years.

Since then, FremantleMedia has seen mixed results from an English-language remake of French hit “The Returned” (which didn’t last) and Cold War spy thriller “Deutschland 83” (which has). Two hotly anticipated series — “The Young Pope,” directed by Paolo Sorrentino and starring Jude Law, and “American Gods,” based on the novel by Neil Gaiman — are set to premiere within the next several months.

Sarah Doole, FremantleMedia’s director of global drama and a veteran of the BBC, spoke to Variety about the rewards and pitfalls of high-end drama and the possibility of a glut in the market. (Her »

World War II Drama ‘Castaway’s War’ in the Works as Movie

1 August 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gold Circle has preemptively acquired movie rights to Stephen Harding’s “The Castaway’s War: One Man’s Battle Against Imperial Japan.”

Described as “‘Lone Survivor’ meets ‘Hell in the Pacific,’” the book tells the true story of U.S. Naval Lieutenant Hugh Barr Miller, a prewar football star at the University of Alabama, who went into the water as his destroyer the USS Strong was torpedoed in the Solomon Islands in 1943 and washed up desperately injured on a small Japanese-occupied island. Against all odds, Miller survived his injuries and spent a month fighting a one-man guerrilla war against the enemy outpost, the outcome of which proved pivotal in the Allied war effort.

Miller was ultimately rescued and subsequently decorated by Eleanor Roosevelt. A movie project about Miller went into development with John Wayne set to play Miller at the height of his fame.

Paul Brooks will produce “The Castaway’s War” for Gold Circle. »

10 films to beat the 2016 blockbuster fatigue

28 July 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Aug 1, 2016

Fed up of big blockbusters right now? Here are some smaller movie treats to be found in August in UK cinemas...

Around this time of the year, we like to shine a spotlight on the slightly smaller films coming out after most of the box office juggernauts have been and gone. But with each annual feature, we've noticed that the year is filling up with blockbusters more and more. The year's first comic book movie was February's Deadpool, a surprise box office smash and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice got 2016's blockbuster season started much earlier than usual.

We're late enough in this elongated season that August will find the blockbuster schedule repeating itself - Ben Affleck's Batman will be back on screen for a cameo in DC Movies' Suicide Squad, Disney follows The Jungle Book with a live-action remake of Pete's Dragon, and Ricky Gervais »

‘Ghostbusters’ May Have a Scary-Good Weekend at the Box Office

12 July 2016 5:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s all-female “Ghostbusters” will attempt to scare off the haters at the U.S. box office but faces a formidable foe for the no. 1 spot– the second session of “The Secret Life of Pets,” which will probably take in around $55 million.

That should be enough for “Pets” to top the opening of the much-debated “Ghostbusters,” modestly pegged by the studio to finish in the $38 million to $40 million range at 3,950 locations on Friday. But box office trackers believe the action-comedy reboot will take in more like $45 million to $50 million.

Ghostbusters” is coming into the market following a rocky reception earlier in the year from fans of the 1984 original with griping emerging about women — Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones —  filling the roles originated by Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.

The studio opted to delay press screenings of the movie, directed by Paul Feig, »

Exclusive: Deals with Im Global, Sf Studios and Radiant Films.

Swiss distributor Ascot Elite has closed deals on a hat-trick of anticipated titles fresh from the Cannes Marche including sports biopic Borg Vs McEnroe, Elizabeth Banks-starrer Rita Hayworth With A Hand Grenade and André Øvredal’s fantasy thriller Mortal.

Ascot Elite has acquired all rights for German-speaking Europe (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) to the newly announced Borg Vs McEnroe.

The film, to be directed by Janus Metz, starring Shia Labeouf as John McEnroe, Sverrir Gudnason as Bjorn Borg and Stellan Skarsgard as Borg’s coach.

But it is the 1980 Wimbledon final that became the stuff of legend, and is considered to be one of the greatest tennis matches of all time.
