Kathryn Bigelow Decries ‘Last Days’ of the African Elephant

28 September 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“When you buy something made of ivory, where does the money go?” asks an onscreen question at the start of Kathryn Bigelow’s “Last Days,” a remarkable three-minute PSA on the subject of elephant poaching and the illegal ivory trade that premiered on Saturday at the New York Film Festival. The unsettling answer: a veritable roll call of the world’s leading terror organizations.

Directed by Bigelow from a treatment she devised with screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, and produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, the visually stunning short combines staccato 2D animation with flashes of live action to trace the insidious flow of ivory income backwards from the point of sale — in markets and tourist shops from Manhattan to Shanghai — to the point of slaughter, culminating in the pointed assertion that “sadly, there is no way to make extinction go backwards.” Along the way, other startling facts fill the screen, »

How Steven Soderbergh Made 'The Knick' Must-See TV

13 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On the occasion of the Karlovy Vary Film festival tribute to Anonymous Content's Steve Golin and Michael Sugar, I sat down with the veteran manager who handles the careers of Joe Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Winona Ryder, Richard Linklater, Marc Webb, Gavin Hood, Patty Jenkins, Scott BurnsCary Fukunaga and Steven Soderbergh, among others. As we talked, HBO's "True Detective," entirely directed by Fukunaga, is competiing for multiple Emmys and coming up was Soderbergh's elegant new Cinemax series "The Knick," starring Clive Owen as a forward-thinking surgeon in 1900 trying to save lives under primitive conditions at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital.  How long have you been working with Steven Soderbergh? I’ve been working with him… it’s now been six years. And so you’ve navigated this interesting career trajectory. Soderbergh is like the canary in the coal mine: someone who sees the future sooner than others. What did he go. »

'Contagion' Screenwriter: The Most Dangerous Virus Is Fear

5 August 2014 7:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

As reports emerge of people who may or may not be infected with Ebola, including a man hospitalized at New York City's Mount Sinai Hospital with Ebola-like symptoms, fear of the disease seems to be growing more rapidly than the number of cases. And that's to be expected, according to the screenwriter of Steven Soderbergh's pandemic movie, Contagion, who claims that such panicked concern is a virulent disease even worse than Ebola. "There is no more effective contagion than fear. Rest assured, it has an R-nought far greater than Ebola," Scott Z. Burns writes in Time, referring

Interview

Nb: This article contains spoilers for 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and mild ones for this year's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.

Imagine you're one of the bosses at 20th Century Fox. Then imagine that you have a date set for a sequel to your surprise hit sci-fi sequel, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. That date is less than two years away, and your current director doesn't think he can have the film ready in time. He promptly departs.

So with the director's chair now absent, who do you give the project to?

The answer: Matt Reeves. When we sat down with him in a London hotel to talk about Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, we could immediately see »

Five Things I Learned from 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' (Review And Roundup, Video)

2 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Going into last week's Fox screening of 3D sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," I was both anticipating and skeptical. Why? Well, the initial series reboot "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" by writer-producers Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver, as executed by director Rupert Wyatt, Andy Serkis as ape leader Caesar, and Joe Letteri's Weta Digital was so superb that the sequel was likely to be a comedown. Back on board were Weta and Serkis, but Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman no longer runs the studio, Wyatt didn't stay for the sequel, Jaffa and Silver were reluctantly back-stepped to producers, with action writer Mark Bomback ("Live Free and Die Hard," "The Wolverine") and Scott Z. Burns ("Contagion") taking over the screenplay. Fox hiring director Matt Reeves was good news, as I had admired his thoughtful work on horror remake "Let Me In."  I walked out of the screening elated. »
