Cary Fukunaga says audiences must accept responsibility for 'death of cinema'

22 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

True Detective director Cary Fukunaga has said audiences need to accept some responsibility for the 'death of cinema'.

He told an audience at the Tribeca Film Festival that he has chosen to release his new film Beasts of No Nation on Netflix because more people will have access to it.

However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fukunaga said he is concerned that films can be released exclusively online.

"The difficult part of defining yourself as a filmmaker is the concept of releasing a film on a digital platform at the same time it's released in cinema really strikes the fear of God in your heart that people are actually still going to go to the cinema to watch the film, when if they spend $6 a month they could watch it for free on their laptops," he said.

"(Beasts of No Nation) was designed to be a film experienced in a group, »

Tribeca: Cary Fukunaga On 'True Detective,' Netflix's 'Beasts of No Nation' Release, and Stephen King's 'It'

24 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James Schamus and Cary Fukunaga are longtime friends, and their rapport was on full display when the two sat down at the Tribeca Film Festival yesterday. Schamus, accomplished producer and former CEO of Focus Features, called Fukunaga a "rising superstar" and promised the panel would cover more ground than the final episode of "True Detective" Season 1. (He was almost telling the truth.) Here's what we learned from their discussion. "True Detective" was an insane, massive shooting experience. "There's a tremendous amount of optimism in pre-production about what you can accomplish," Fukunaga said. "You're like, oh, this will be easy, we'll get that today and then we'll move on to something else. Because 'True Detective' was such a massive beast, the pre-production aspect required meeting upon meeting...We did all the interrogation stuff in three days. One day, McConaughey did 29 pages of text." He added that much of the planning. »

Tribeca: Cary Fukunaga Talks ‘True Detective,’ Horror Flick ‘It,’ And Releasing ‘Beasts Of No Nation’ On Netflix

24 April 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since breaking onto the scene with his streetwise debut feature "Sin Nombre" in 2009, for which he won the Directing award at Sundance that year, American camera operator-turned-director Cary Fukunaga has been on a roll. "Sin Nombre" went on to receive nominations for Best Feature, Best Director and Best Cinematography at the 2010 Independent Spirit Awards. Fukunaga’s follow-up "Jane Eyre" (2010) featured simmering performances from Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. The lush adaptation was nominated for an Academy Award for costume design, and Fukunaga had established himself as a force with a versatile eye and diverse interests. In 2014, Fukunaga made the jump to television, radically overhauling the model by collaborating closely on HBO's "True Detective" with the show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto; Fukunaga made news by directing all eight episodes of the acclaimed limited series. The filmmaker has another possible game »

True Detective Season 2 Motion Posters Are the Ones We Deserve

22 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

True Detective season 2 carries some big expectations. The first season hit the zeitgeist, but since True Detective is an anthology, the only constant is writer and creator Nic Pizzolatto. So how much of season one’s magic came from Pizzolatto and how much came from director Cary Fukunaga and stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson? However it shakes out, HBO is keeping the brooding, damning marketing intact. Last year’s True Detective posters carried the tagline “Man Is the Cruelest Animal”. This year, it’s “We Get the World We Deserve,” on motion posters showing L.A. traffic. When he was doing press for season one, Pizzolatto said season two was about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system,” but then walked it back. You can see from these posters that transportation will still be a major part of the story. Check »

George Lucas, Christopher Nolan and More Trek to Tribeca Fest’s Talks And Screenings

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar-winning costume and production designer Catherine Martin (“The Great Gatsby”) calls herself “a relative newcomer” to Gotham, but has already found a truism: “One of the great revelations of New York City is, in an instant you can find just about anything you’re looking for here.”

For 2015 Tribeca Film Festival attendees, “anything” includes celebrities, filmmakers and innovators in the Tribeca Talks series. Among the filmmakers and performers speaking this year are Martin, George Lucas (interviewed by Stephen Colbert, no less), Christopher Nolan and Cary Fukunaga.

For Fukunaga (HBO’s “True Detective” and movie “Jane Eyre”), the festival represents a homecoming: “It’s in my back yard in my city. I want to take part in the cultural events taking place here and that’s Tribeca.”

The Alienist Heads To Television With Cary Fukunaga At The Helm

15 April 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Success can be a double-edged sword. Delivering the first season of the highly acclaimed TV series True Detective has clearly made director Cary Fukunaga a sought-after commodity – and deservedly so. However, an influx of work opportunities can lead to something of a backlog, with fans chomping at the bit for one project or the other. This makes today’s announcement maddening for those patiently awaiting Fukunaga’s version of Stephen King’s It, since it has the director moving full-steam ahead with a television adaptation of the 1994 novel The Alienist.

The source material was written by author Caleb Carr and is a crime novel set in 1896 in New York City. It follows several prominent figures from that time and place, including Theodore Roosevelt at the point in his career when he was New York City Police Commissioner. Roosevelt oversees a team of homicide investigators who use emerging tactics such as psychological profiling, »

True Detective's Cary Fukunaga Finds The Alienist

14 April 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With his award-winning success directing all of True Detective's first season on the books, it’s perhaps not surprising that other TV series have been scrambling to secure Cary Fukunaga’s services. Though films have lured him back away for a while, he’s now attached to call the shots on Paramount Television’s The Alienist.Drive writer Hossein Amini has penned the pilot and intends to write more scripts for the series adapted from Caleb Carr’s novel. Set in late 19th century Gilded Age New York, the story deals with Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, who uses the embryonic science of psychology to help the police and a newspaper reporter track down a serial killer. Familiar territory for Fukunaga, then, albeit melded with the period drama sensibility he’s brought to the likes of Jane Eyre.“The Alienist is a fascinating and distinctive, fast-paced psychological thriller that is wonderfully »

Cary Fukunaga to Helm The Alienist TV Series with Eric Roth Producing

14 April 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After you helm the most talked about television program of 2014, there's a bit more freedom, creatively speaking, given when the choice of a new project comes along and how you'd like to approach that project. In the case of Cary Fukunaga, who directed the visually stunning first season of HBO's True Detective, the triumph of the series has allowed Fukunaga to secure distribution for Beasts of No Nation, his hugely controversial film focused on a child soldier in Africa and starring Idris Elba, through Netflix, and directorial duties on a new adaptation of Stephen King's It. On top of these two major projects, The Wrap reports today that Fukunaga is attached to another cherry television directing gig, this one being an adaptation of Caleb Carr's The Alienist for Paramount and Anonymous Content. The Wrap summarizes the story of The Alienist as such: Set in the tenements and mansions of Gilded Age New York City, »

Cary Fukunaga Returns To TV To Direct Event Series Based On Caleb Carr's 'The Alienist'

14 April 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Director Cary Fukunaga knows first hand the tremendous amount of work and reward that comes with taking on directorial duties of an entire TV show. Of course, he's the man that guided the first season of "True Detective" to critical acclaim, but the shoot was long and the post-production lengthier than usual, as Fukunaga oversaw everything. It's part of the reason why HBO opted for a handful of directors for the second season — it allows things to get moving along much faster, and it's why you'll be seeing the second season in June. But Fukunaga clearly enjoyed longform storytelling, and he's got another project cooking. Deadline reports that Fukunaga is reteaming with "True Detective" production company Anonymous Content to direct and executive produce an event series based on Caleb Carr's best-selling "The Alienist." Eric Roth is also on board to produce. The book — which is guaranteed to be found »
