Alison Thompson: Sales are tougher than ever

15 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

During her keynote at Film London’s Production Finance Market, Alison Thompson remarks on the glut of films made today, but also sees some bright spots like the arrival of Netflix.

British sales veteran Alison Thompson said market conditions for sellers are as tough now as they have ever been.

“As we all know, the situation now is just about as bad as it can be,” Thompson said during her keynote speech at the Film London Production Finance Market.

“The television business, which was frankly driving the boom in film for 20 years, suddenly came a cropper so that independent distributors were losing their TV output deals, which were essentially underpinning the business they were doing.

“That, combined with the change to the DVD market - we’ve had a double hit. It has been really, really challenging. In fact, we are working in the most difficult time I have worked in in my entire career.”

Even so, Thompson »

At Least 8 Issues We Have With Lady Gaga's New Tattoo

3 October 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not on the right track. Not born this way.

Not on the right track. Not born this way.

Lady Gaga revealed her new back tattoo on Instagram, and we love Mother Monster, but we're not so sure about it. Now, it's her life, her body, and we're not here to bring her down on that front. We're just thinking that maybe she could've kept this ink secret -- like her possibly secret marriage. Here are just a few of the issues we have with Lady Gaga's new tattoo.

Little Monsters please forgive us...

1. Just try getting anything done with finger nails like that.

Once Again, style over function.

2. Pinky fingers don't point that way.

Seriously, look at them. They don't.

3. Also, about that ring finger...

What Is It Even Connected To?

4. But really the space between them is what's really throwing us off.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks: Rhod Gilbert on becoming the new host

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It feels like we've had guest hosts on Never Mind the Buzzcocks forever, but that's about to change. Yup, we have a new - permanent - host, and it's none other than comedian Rhod Gilbert. Since that's a pretty big thing to take on, we called up Rhod - while he was dealing with an unruly dog on a Welsh mountain (good preparation, in other words) - to find out how he'll cope with difficult guests, what'll be different and why the first single he ever bought is not a good sign of how credible he is...

Hi Rhod. Are you going to be more of a Lamarr or more of an Amstell?

"I don't think I'm either to be honest with you. You can go round in circles analysing these things to death. Both of those guys hosted a lot of shows, they left their mark on it indelibly. »

David Arnold: 'I'd go back to James Bond in a heartbeat'

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While no-one can touch John Barry at the top of the James Bond music pyramid, the only person that even comes close is David Arnold.

Arnold scored five James Bond films, from 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies to 2008's Quantum of Solace, but was replaced for Skyfall by Sam Mendes's usual music man Thomas Newman.

James Bond will return. So will Sam Mendes. But will Arnold be back in the studio filling in the gaps between what he calls "the explosions and the car squeals and the gear changes and the punctures"?

Ahead of his Bose Universal Conductor live immersive collaboration with Ella Eyre, Digital Spy caught up with the composer, and when we finished grilling him on all things Doctor Who, we got round to 007.

"I always said that I'd go back if they asked me," Arnold said when we brought up the inevitable.

Life-Size Amy Winehouse Statue Unveiled in London

14 September 2014 8:19 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Today, a life-size bronze statue of Amy Winehouse was unveiled in the London neighborhood of Camden, on what would have been her 31st birthday (Winehouse passed away three years ago due to alcohol poisoning). Hundreds of fans gathered on site to witness the unveiling of the statue, which depicts Winehouse wearing a star of David necklace, with a real red rose crowning her iconic beehive hairdo. Her parents were on hand for the unveiling, with her father Mitch Winehouse — who started the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help those struggling with substance abuse issues — calling the day one of "incredibly mixed emotions.""They don't put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she's gone but spiritually she'll never leave us. I feel sad, very, very sad," he said. "We shouldn't be here but we are, this is the reality and we've just »

Bombs and bombshells collide in new trailer for Wgn's 'Manhattan'

23 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

No, Wgn America’s second scripted original isn’t set on a certain overpopulated island, and it’s not a guide to mixing the perfect whisky-vermouth-bitters concoction. Instead, it’s a stylish retro drama about the men and women commissioned by the United States to create the world’s first atomic bomb—or, as one scientist wryly informs another in the following exclusive trailer, a device the team “prefers to call a gadget.”

Not already intrigued? Take a look at the extended promo, which starts out with old-timey newsreel footage before segueing into actual scenes from the series. You’ll »

Film Review: ‘The Road Within’

15 July 2014 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A germaphobe, an anorexic and a guy with Tourette’s syndrome embark on a long journey in “The Road Within,” and if you’ve heard this one before, it may be because you’ve already experienced “Vincent Wants to Sea,” the 2010 German dramedy that provides an almost scene-for-scene blueprint for writer-director Gren Wells’ American remake. Similarly calculating in its bid for laughs and tears, this tale of three twentysomething misfits boasts a somewhat rougher indie edge than its more polished predecessor, a stylistic decision that suits the bristling and committed performances by Robert Sheehan, Dev Patel and Zoe Kravitz. Still, there remains a nagging tidiness to the whole endeavor that leaves a strained, cloying aftertaste, suggesting commercial performance in line with the picture’s overall modest impact.

Cobain's Kid Scolds Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey got Frances Bean Cobain's attention when she told the Guardian earlier this month, "I wish I was dead already." She was talking, at the time, about her heroes, including Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain, and admitted that she sees dying young as glamorous. Frances Bean Cobain responded on Twitter, the New York Daily News reports, though the original tweets have apparently been taken down: "The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize … I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it’s ‘cool.'" »

30 Images That Will Restore Your Faith In England

24 June 2014 4:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Felipe Dana/AP/Press Association Images

As a country, England is going through something of a rough patch. The combined effects of economic instability, a distrust of our politicians and the typically bad English weather have all led to our little island going through a turbulent few years. To make matters worse, England’s woeful World Cup stint meant that even the prospect of some footballing heroics in Brazil wouldn’t lift our spirits.

House prices may be sky-high and the football squad may end up coming back from Brazil without a single victory but this shouldn’t mean that we lose faith in our country and the many great things it stands for. From the trivial to the grand, the comic to the magnificent; there are many things to love about our sceptered isle – this is what keeps us loving our country in spite of its atrocious weather, political »
