Our writers' Top of the Year picks: Benjamin's Top 20, Yama & Joseph's Top Ten

31 December 2007 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- [Editor's Note: While I'm still impatiently awaiting for a first screening of There Will Be Blood (Joseph is too) in my neck of the woods, I've asked our more regular film journalists Benjamin Crossley-Marra (NYC), Yama Rahimi (L.A) and Joseph Belanger (Montreal) to include their year end top 10's and in Ben's case, a more elaborate year end list. Without further ado here are the three lists - safe to say that we pretty much agree on the majority of the top titles.]Benjamin Crossley-Marra's Top Twenty + 4 films not yet distributed(in numerical order)20. Grindhouse: I'm the kind of guy that can appreciate a film like this. What most audiences didn't get was that this was supposed to be a tribute to the nostalgic corniness of splatter cinema, I think audiences went in expecting another Kill Bill or Sin City.  I'm disappointed that the whole experience didn't make it to DVD.19. Black Snake Moan: Again...another movie audiences didn't get. It never ceases to amaze me how satire is lost on mass audiences. I found Black Snake Moan to be a  funny,  spot-on comedy on social moors in the South. Any comedy that doesn't involve stoners realizing their full potential and getting that impossibly hot girl is a plus in my book.18. Eastern Promises: David Cronenberg should enjoy his deserved status as one of today's most well-respected directors. With Eastern Promises »

Interview: Juan Antonio Bayona & Sergio Sanchez (The Orphanage)

29 December 2007 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- [Ed's note: They are rare occasions but I love it when our U.S based correspondents get to chill out with fellow countrymen - in this case Barbara had the chance to end the year with a pair of Spaniards that are having one hell of a great year. - Enjoy!]This year, director Juan Antonio Bayona and screenwriter Sergio G. Sanchez are Spain's most talked about filmmakers. Their feature film debut, The Orphanage, has became in less than three months, the highest grossing  movie in the history of Spanish cinema, let alone in the history of Spaniard horror film movies, which was almost nonexistent until a Alejandro Amenábar started the trend with the film Thesis almost a decade ago. Selected to represent Spain for the Best foreign picture category at the upcoming Oscars, The Orphanage has one of the better chances to not only be a top 5 finalist but grab top honors especially since Guillermo del Toro presents and produces the movie (yes, we believe in the power of this movie but we also know that contacts are more than important in Hollywood!)Talking about horror movies these days means films opting for bloody images, never-ending screams and many »

Sundance Film Festival 2008: Park City at Midnight lineup

29 November 2007 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Though small, the horror-fantasy flick section packs a punch with notable standouts including Michael Haneke and George A. Romero preeming their latest and Quentin Tarantino making a comeback. I believe it has been a long time since he showed his face here... not since  film called Reservoir Dogs. Though he didn't direct the project titled Hell Ride - this collaboration between him and Larry Bishop once again ventures into "homage territory". Serving as a launch pad for Magnolia Pictures, we find the new label Magnet Releasing showcasing of Spanish flick Timecrimes. Here are the rest of the films that will show late in the night...:The films screening in Park City at Midnight this year are: "Adventures of Power" / USA, Director and Screenwriter: Ari Gold In his quest to become the world's greatest air-drummer, a small-town dreamer must overcome obstacles and ridicule to save the day.

A creature feature for Polley, Brody

4 October 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody have been cast in Splice, a science fiction thriller being directed by Vincenzo Natali.

The film is being produced by Steven Hoban of Copperheart Entertainment and executive produced by Franck Chorot of Gaumont. Guillermo Del Toro, Don Murphy and Susan Montford also are executive producing via their Angry Bulls shingle.

The story explores a dark vision of the world of genetic engineering in which two young scientists (Polley and Brody) become superstars by splicing different animal DNA to create fantastical new creatures. They ignore the legal and ethical boundaries and introduce human DNA into their experiment. The screenplay was written by Natali, Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor.

Production is slated to begin in November in Toronto.

Polley recently wrapped HBO's John Adams miniseries. The actress, whose credits include Dawn of the Dead and The Secret Life of Words, has been making waves as a director with her drama Away From Her, which last week netted her a Directors Guild of Canada Award. »

6 September 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

TORONTO - Picturehouse has promoted Lindsay Crain from director of acquisitions to vp acquisitions just in time for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Crain will continue reporting to senior vp of acquisitions Sara Rose in the company's Los Angeles offices. The pair will work with president Bob Berney to navigate the exciting and treacherous indie film landscape.

Three Amigos prep all-star first offering via Uni

22 June 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MEXICO CITY -- When Universal Pictures and its specialty division Focus Features International signed an ambitious five-film deal with Cha Cha Cha, the upstart shingle of helmers Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo Del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the groundbreaking venture allowed the partners to form a dream team of Mexican talent.

An expected payoff is already evident with the company's first project, Rudo y Cursi. Currently in production on Mexico's Pacific coast, the film's credits read like a who's who of contemporary Mexican cinema.

Cuaron, Del Toro and Inarritu, the so-called Three Amigos of a new wave of Mexican crossover hits, are co-producing the picture, which reunites Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, the stars of Cuaron's hit road movie Y Tu Mama Tambien.

Y Tu Mama scribe Carlos Cuaron, brother of Alfonso, wrote the script and is directing the film. Academy Award winner Eugenio Caballero is on board as production designer.

Carlos Cuaron describes the story as a love-hate relationship between two brothers who play professional soccer. In futbol-mad Mexico, a soccer-themed movie featuring two of Mexico's most bankable actors is almost a guaranteed hit.

The production even boasts some famed non-Mexican talent, such as cinematographer Adam Kimmel, director of photography on Capote, and Argentinean comedian Guillermo Francella. »

Connelly and Bettany are 'Born' into it

12 June 2007 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- It’s a whole lot easier for acting couples to stay together when casting agents pick up two players in one as is the case with hubby and wife team Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany.  Variety reports that the pair have boarded what looks to be a project in good hands - Guillermo del Toro, Lawrence Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce, and horror vet Clive Barker will exec produce. Scripted Barker and Paul Kaye and to be be helm by short film filmmaker Daniel Simpson, with names like del toro and Barker involved we all get the hunch that this won’t play out like a rom com. The storyline for Born revolves around a couple who settle down in a seemingly idyllic English town to raise a family. Their perfect life is shaken when the husband, a claymation artist, discovers his characters are acting out a nightmare that comes to life. »

'Three amigos' seek film industry support

21 March 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

MEXICO CITY -- Mexican directors Guillermo Del Toro, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Alfonso Cuaron, fresh off a raft of awards season accolades, met this week with Mexico's new president to urge more support for the struggling national film industry.

The trio said on a Tuesday morning news program that they recently met with President Felipe Calderon in a bid to garner more backing for the industry. They added that they plan to meet with lawmakers Wednesday.

The three filmmakers, who also produce movies, are pressuring the federal government to create better distribution and exhibition opportunities for local production companies. Of about 60 films produced here in 2006, only half hit theaters.

They also would like to see Mexico's television networks become more involved in film production as numerous European broadcasters have done.

There are signs that the government is showing more interest in film. Last week, a new tax incentive went into effect that should help boost domestic production considerably. »

Also present were his so and co-writer Jonathan Craven, along with two cast members, Jessica Stroup and Daniela Alonso. I talked to Jessica for a few minutes and she spoke enthusiastically about the combat training and rock climbing the cast did in preparation for the film, and also how lunch on the set could be a little odd at times with half the cast walking around in full mutant make-up. I also got the chance to speak with Wes Craven, and ask him one question: What scares him? He claimed no phobias, »

'Scotland,' 'Pan's Labyrinth' triumph at BAFTA honors

12 February 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

LONDON -- Idi Amin drama The Last King of Scotland and Guillermo Del Toro's rich gothic fairy tale Pan's Labyrinth swept through this year's Orange British Academy Awards, winning three awards each at the gala ceremony held Sunday night at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden.

It also was a good night for Helen Mirren, whose winning run of awards continued after regal contemporary drama The Queen earned her the best actress award and was named best film.

Mirren paid tribute to Britain's Elizabeth II, whom she said she "hugely respected" and whose character she had been trying to reach through her performance.

"That's the person I'm trying to constantly fight my way to being, not like my own chaotic Helen Mirreny self," she said. "Just to be nominated on that great powerhouse of talent was fantastic."

Mirren dedicated her award to British actor Ian Richardson, who died last week.

Producer Andy Harries thanked Granada and ITV "for recognizing the film's vision" and called on the some of the film's $100 million receipts to be plowed back into the British film industry.

Director Stephen Frears said Queen was "not a sensational film, in my opinion, but the way it was received was exceptional."

Filmmaker Paul Greengrass was honored with the David Lean Award for achievement in directing for his film United 93.

Scotland was honored with the Alexander Korda Award for outstanding British film of the year, one of the seven awards hosted on the night to be voted for by the BAFTA jury. »

'Volver' and 'Pan's Labyrinth' Triumph at Goya Awards

30 January 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The movie, which had received 14 nominations, also won Best Original Soundtrack for Alberto Iglesias.

I am going to try not to cry because I'm a disaster, and these 30 seconds are not going to be enough." Pan's Labyrinth, which is nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at next month's Oscars, collected the most awards - seven in total, including Best Original Screenplay for Mexican writer/director Guillermo Del Toro.

'Epic,' 'Smokin' Aces' have hot hands at b.o.

28 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The spoof genre continues to thrive. The 20th Century Fox film Epic Movie topped the charts at the North American boxoffice this a weekend, taking in an estimated $19.2 million.

Universal Pictures' actioner Smokin' Aces claimed second place with an estimated $14.3 million. And the Oscar-nominated films received a healthy bump in the marketplace. Despite all the activity, though, the business generated by the top 12 films was still down 11% from the comparable weekend in 2006.

Rounding out the other new release of the weekend, Sony Pictures' romantic comedy Catch and Release earned a No. 4 spot, bowing to an estimated $8 million as it lured in primarily females. But MGM's horror romance Blood and Chocolate took a dive, finishing in 15th place with just $2.1 million.

Fox's Night at the Museum continued to perform. The PG-rated family comedy grossed an additional $9.5 million for the No. 3 spot. The Ben Stiller-starrer has grossed $216.7 million in its six weekends of release.

Sony Pictures' holdovers Stomp the Yard, and Pursuit of Happyness also continue to maintain a strong presence in the marketplace. In fifth place, Stomp grossed an additional $7.8 million, dropping a scant 37%, to put its cume in the $50 million range. In seventh place, Pursuit earned an additional $5 million. Buoyed by an Oscar nomination for star Will Smith, the drama fell only 21% to put its total estimated gross at $152.9 million.

Other Oscar-nominated films also took advantage of their turn in the awards limelight. Despite being left out of the best picture and best director categories for the Academy Award nominations, Paramount Pictures' Dreamgirls, from Dreamworks, grossed an additional $6.6 million for a sixth place on the charts. The musical, which did earn eight nominations, added 571 theaters to its playdates, but still fell 17% from last weekend's total. The Beyonce Knowles-starrer has generated an estimated $86.7 million to date.

Picturehouse's Pan's Labyrinth, which earned six nominations, matched the $4.5 million it took in last weekend with the help of an additional 214 theaters. The Guillermo del Toro-directed film continues to maintain a strong per-theater average. This weekend's number amounted to $5,474 on 823 screens, putting its total cume at an estimated $16.3 million.

Miramax Films added 244 runs to its seemingly evergreen film The Queen, which walked away Tuesday with a coveted best picture nomination. Grossing an estimated $4 million in 1,830 theaters, the film, which ranked ninth, has generated more than $41 million since it bowed 18 weeks ago. »

Oscar noms all over map; 'Babel' hones int'l flavor

24 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The multilingual Babel clearly spoke Oscar's language Tuesday morning, when nominations for the 79th Annual Academy Awards were announced. The musical Dreamgirls might have earned the most nominations, eight, but it was shut out of the best picture race.

Instead, it earned the unenviable distinction of becoming the first movie in Oscar history to fail to earn a best picture nomination while collecting the most noms.

"Looking at the whole awards season, there is no clear front-runner," Miramax Films president Daniel Battsek said as he celebrated six noms for The Queen and one for Peter O'Toole's autumnal performance in Venus.

For best picture honors, Babel, with seven noms, will compete against the crime drama The Departed, the Japanese-language war film Letters From Iwo Jima, the quirky comedy Little Miss Sunshine and Queen, a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II under siege from the modern media.

So far, though, a definite front-runner hasn't emerged during an awards season in which Babel earned the title of best drama at the Golden Globes but Little Miss Sunshine took the Producers Guild of America's film prize last weekend.

Babel might tell a globe-hopping story of cultural misunderstandings, but the 5,830 voting members of the Academy seemed to be in a particularly international mood. In the acting categories, they nominated two actresses who deliver foreign-language performances: Penelope Cruz, who stars as a ghost-haunted widow in the Spanish-language Volver, and Rinko Kikuchi, who plays a deaf student speaking Japanese and also signing in Babel. Kikuchi's castmate Adriana Barraza, appearing in a role that combines English and Spanish dialogue, also was rewarded with a nomination.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Guillermo Del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, the trio of Mexican-born directors dubbed the Three Amigos, all figured prominently. Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel picked up seven noms, Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth was close behind with six -- including a best foreign-language film nomination -- and Cuaron's Children of Men took three, including best adapted screenplay.

Commenting on the multiculturalism of this year's crop of nominees, Forest Whitaker, nominated as best actor for The Last King of Scotland, said: "We're finally recognizing that we're all here on the planet together." »

Nine on foreign-pic Oscar shortlist

23 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Nine of 61 films that originally qualified for consideration by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the foreign-language film Oscar have advanced to the final voting phase.

The rules for the category changed this year. Instead of several hundred members of the foreign-language film committee selecting the five nominees, this year -- during what the Academy calls Phase I -- their ballots selected nine finalists for nomination.

A Phase II committee of 30, comprised of 10 randomly selected members of the larger group and two 10-member contingents from New York and Los Angeles, will choose the final five nominees.

The films are Algeria's Days of Glory, directed by Rachid Bouchareb (distributed in the U.S. by the Weinstein Co.); Canada's Water, by Deepa Mehta (Fox Searchlight); Denmark's After the Wedding, by Susanne Bier (IFC Films); France's Avenue Montaigne, by Daniele Thompson (ThinkFilm); Germany's The Lives of Others, by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (Sony Pictures Classics); Mexico's Pan's Labyrinth, by Guillermo Del Toro (Picturehouse); the Netherlands' Black Book, by Paul Verhoeven (Sony Pictures Classics); Spain's Volver, directed by Pedro Almodovar (Sony Pictures Classics); and Switzerland's Vitus, by Fredi M.
