Over 30 New Images & An International Poster For 'Life' Starring Robert Pattinson & Dane DeHaan

17 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Robert Pattinson’s career makeover is going… reasonably. Even before the “Twillight” series wrapped up, he was making an admirable move to work with people like David Cronenberg. Since it finished, he’s doubled-down on that, with “The Rover” and “Maps To The Stars” following in quick succession last year, and both proving pretty good, if a little divisive (he’s very good in the former, a bit forgettable in the latter).  This year, Pattinson appeared in Werner Herzog’s “Queen Of The Desert,” and also has “Life” coming up for Anton Corbijn, with each movie premiering at Berlin. Verdicts on both were a bit muted, but we’re definitely more intrigued by the second, which follows the relationship between Life Magazine photographer Dennis Stock (Pattinson) and the legendary, ill-fated movie star James Dean (Dane DeHaan).  Read More: Review: Anto Corbijin's 'Life' Starring Robert Pattinson And Dane DeHaan »

Imperium author Christian Kracht, Finsterworld director Frauke Finsterwalder with Anne-Katrin Titze

Into my conversations with Uschi Reich, producer of Dominik Graf's Beloved Sisters at the New York Film Festival, The Sleepwalker's Mona Fastvold and Brady Corbet, director of the upcoming The Childhood Of A Leader, starring Bérénice Bejo, Liam Cunningham, Stacy Martin, Sophie Curtis and Robert Pattinson (who stars with Dane DeHaan and Ben Kingsley in Anton Corbijn's Life), Christian Kracht's novel, Imperium, sailed in.

While reading his South Sea adventure from the age of empire, I envisioned it as a film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the third link to The Master and the Thomas Pynchon adaptation, Inherent Vice.

Sdcc: Luc Besson says James Cameron’s Avatar inspired his latest project Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

11 July 2015 4:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in March we got the first details from Luc Besson on his next project Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Based on a French comic book series, Valerian will star Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) as the titular hero and Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad) as his female companion Laureline.

Besson made a fleeting appearance at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday to show off some early concept art for Valerian – including designs for spaceships and alien lifeforms – and offered up some more details about the project. The director said that the movie – which is set to be his most ambitious to date – was inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar:

“I saw Avatar and had to throw the script into the garbage…it was too normal…it was not good enough.”, Besson continued, “All the directors in the world have to thank him because every five years »

Lucy 2’s Script Is Complete; Luc Besson Talks Valerian

10 July 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Say what you will about Luc Besson, but the director has a pretty stellar track record for creating badass female action heroes. And though Lucy had a huge number of problems, the pic still gave Scarlett Johansson a chance to power her own summer actioner, and the actress really delivered. Recently, it was revealed that Besson’s company EuropaCorp was proceeding with development of a Lucy follow-up, but a recent piece from Screen Daily posits that Lucy 2 isn’t just in the works – its script is already complete.

Speaking with select outlets during Comic-Con, the French director was vague about details for the sequel, which has its work cut out for it given the incredibly definitive ending of the first film. He did apparently insinuate that the story has been hashed out and the script is complete, but no word yet on when a team will come together to make the pic. »

Luc Besson Talks His "Valerian" Film

10 July 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following on from his success with "Lucy," filmmaker Luc Besson is returning to the space opera genre which he last tackled with 1997's "The Fifth Element".

"Valerian" will be a whopping $180 million adaptation of the famous European comic of the same name, and is a project the helmer considers the largest challenge of his career.

Speaking with Heat Vision, Besson says he first tried to tackle Valerian years ago but: "I saw Avatar and had to throw the script into the garbage... It was too normal, it was not good enough. All the directors in the world have to thank him [James Cameron] because every five years he comes out with a movie and pushes us."

Challenged by Cameron's intense world building, Besson has apparently retained only around half of what he originally wrote. The story follows a 26th century time-traveling galactic agent and involves only five living actors along with a »

Luc Besson Says Sci-Fi 'Valerian' Will Be "Mr & Mrs Smith In Space," Script For 'Lucy 2' Finished

10 July 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This past spring came the news that not only was Luc Besson returning to the world of sci-fi, he was doing it with his long gestating dream project "Valerian." Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevinge have been tapped for the lead roles in the adaptation of of the celebrated French sci-fi comic series "Valerian," which tells the story of a pair of time-and-space-traveling special agents. And while the filmmaker is keeping plot details under lock and key for now, he did share a bit of what the vibe might be like. “It’s 'Mr & Mrs Smith' in space,” Besson told European press. “They’re super-agents who travel through time and space. They work for the Human Federation.” So it looks like our two young leads might have some friction between them, maybe not unlike the opposites attract chemistry of Korben Dallas and Leeloo in "The Fifth Element," but perhaps with a bit more antagonism. »

Luc Besson talks ‘Valerian’ plans

10 July 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The French filmmaker and EuropaCorp head flew into Comic-Con on Thursday for a rare and deeply personal presentation that featured concept art from his upcoming $180m space opera.

“It’s the adventure of my life,” the director told an intimate gathering of select press as he offered sparse details on Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, due to start production in January 2016 and open in the Us as a PG-13 film via Red (Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution) in July 2017.

The project, which was one of the hottest pre-sales titles in Cannes, is adapted from Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézieres’ bestselling French comic book series that launched in 1967.

“It’s Mr & Mrs Smith in space,” said the director, a life-long fan who said he was 10 when he first bought the comics. “They’re super-agents who travel through time and space. They work for the Human Federation.”

6 July 2015 1:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – “Maggie,” “The Gift,” “Victoria” and “Life” will screen at the 48th Sitges Intl. Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia, one of the world’s most important genre events.

Also confirmed: Two of the most anticipated Spanish titles of the year: “Vulcania” and “Summer Camp.”

Unspooling in an idyllic resort just half an hour’s car-ride south of Barcelona, Sitges will take place Oct. 9-18.

Highlighted in Sitges’ first major line-up announcement, the four titles underscore the vast range of contempo fantastic cinema, at least how it is understood by the Catalan fest.

Well-reviewed at Tribeca – Variety’s Guy Lodge wrote of “Henry Hobson’s hugely promising debut feature” – “Maggie” has Arnold Schwarzenegger as a father caring for his ever more walking dead daughter (Abigail Breslin).

"Lucy," "Colombiana" Sequels In Development

26 June 2015 11:26 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Luc Besson's EuropaCorp company is participating in CineEurope this week where they announced their list of upcoming movies.

The big surprise is that sequels to last year's Scarlett Johansson sci-fi thriller "Lucy," and the Zoe Saldana action thriller "Colombiana" are both in development.

A year ago Besson himself was asked "Lucy" sequel prospects to which he replied "I don't see how we can do [a sequel]. It''s not made for that." Looks like someone found a way.

Also on the way are "Shut In" with Naomi Watts, "Nine Lives" with Kevin Spacey, "The Lake" with Sullivan Stapleton, and "Escobar" with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz which are all due next year. The Dave Bautista-led "Warrior's Gate" and Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne-starring "Valerian" are also due in 2017. »

Lucy 2 And Colombiana 2 Both In The Works

26 June 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Say what you will about Luc Besson, but the guy knows how to craft a kick-ass action heroine. At CineEurope 2015, his production house EuropaCorp unveiled a packed slate of upcoming films, and included in the roster were a pair of sequels to two of Besson’s most successful female-driven action-thrillers: Lucy and Colombiana. That’s right – despite Scarlett Johansson’s psychokinetic badass ascending past human form at the end of Lucy, and Zoe Saldana’s revenge-minded assassin slaying the man responsible for her parents’ murders, both characters are gearing up for more carnage-heavy adventures.

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise that Besson is interested in Lucy 2 and Colombiana 2 – both films were solid performers at the box office (especially Lucy) and starred actresses who are becoming more bankable by the week – Johansson is a proven draw for audiences with Marvel fans in her pocket, while Saldana recently led Guardians of the Galaxy »

Film Review: ‘King Jack’

11 June 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No unfamiliar ground is trodden in “King Jack,” a summer-haze study of adolescent anomie punctuated with blunt bouts of violence, but Felix Thompson’s debut feature covers it with an assured stride all the same. Gaining a degree of topicality from its hard depiction of teen-on-teen bullying, this gleamingly lensed tale of a 15-year-old scrapper taught a tough lesson in selflessness over a single weekend in the Hudson Valley bears the whispery influence of such American mood merchants as David Gordon Green and David Robert Mitchell. Still, Thompson demonstrates enough visual and verbal ingenuity to make this appealing miniature — an audience award winner at the Tribeca fest in April — both a viable arthouse play and a harbinger of more ambitious things to come from its writer-helmer. 

If the initial outward trappings of Thompson’s filmmaking — the peachy midsummer glow permeating the frame, the dulcet acoustic scoring — portend a certain preciousness, »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Poorly Cast Hoffman as Polemical Stand-Up Comic and Free Speech Advocate in Timorous Biopic

4 June 2015 6:10 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Lenny Bruce: Dustin Hoffman in the 1974 Bob Fosse movie. Lenny Bruce movie review: Polemical stand-up comedian merited less timid biopic (Oscar Movie Series) Bob Fosse's 1974 biopic Lenny has two chief assets: the ever relevant free speech issues it raises and the riveting presence of Valerie Perrine. The film itself, however, is only sporadically thought-provoking or emotionally gripping; in fact, Lenny is a major artistic letdown, considering all the talent involved and the fertile material at hand. After all, much more should have come out of a joint effort between director Fosse, fresh off his Academy Award win for Cabaret; playwright-screenwriter Julian Barry, whose stage version of Lenny earned Cliff Gorman a Tony Award; two-time Best Actor Oscar nominee Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy); and cinematographer Bruce Surtees (Play Misty for Me, Blume in Love).

Cinedigm plans a theatrical release in about 10 markets.
