Emmy Awards 2016: Handicapping the Top Series and Acting Races

19 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

That sigh of relief you hear across town is from everyone who made it through the first round of the TV Academy’s Emmy voting. Now, the race begins in earnest to claim the small screen’s top trophies. We took a look at 11 key categories to break down the ones to beat, and the threats to watch out for, before voters cast their final ballots beginning Aug. 15.

Drama Series

HBO’s powerhouse “Game of Thrones” is once again the year’s most-nominated series with 23 noms (down only one from last year). It’ll be tough to beat the returning champ. Netflix’s “House of Cards” is second in overall noms for drama, with 13 (including eight for acting). The swan song season for PBS’ “Downton Abbey” nabbed 11, and though there may be some sentimental factor in voting for a series that never won top drama (it triumphed as a miniseries in its first season), don’t bet »

K-Shop review – murder with chips and salad

24 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Grisly vengeance and chilli sauce aplenty, but this bloody thriller can’t quite stretch to a full-length feature

The son of a kebab shop owner avenges his father’s death at the hands the marauding drunks who lay waste to his shop each night. Student-turned-vigilante Salah (Ziad Abaza) disposes of the evidence one “special” doner at a time. This is Sweeney Todd reimagined for the Brit binge-drinking generation. It’s a cross between a thriller and an outraged tabloid article about the perils of alcopops. But this short film idea can’t sustain a feature, no matter how much chilli sauce and cranial trauma you pack into it.

K-Shop review – undercooked British slabfest

21 July 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Macho, violent thriller hiding an original concept, where a graduate takes over a kebab house targeted by drunks – and starts a vigilante fightback

A strict script editor might have helped. Somewhere inside this baggy, macho, sloppily violent, visually uninteresting British film is a sharp black comedy struggling to get out. Salah (Ziad Abaza) is a smart young Turkish-British guy about to graduate with a politics degree, heading for a brilliant career. With nothing left to do but fine tune his final dissertation, Salah comes to help his ailing father Zaki (Nayef Rashed) who runs a late-night kebab place in a south coast seaside town – and he’s horrified at the way aggressive drunks terrorise his dad, and at the way public drunkenness has been created by a huge club, run by a cynical and sinister promoter called Jason Brown (Scot Williams). A grisly event leaves Salah in charge of the kebab shop, »

Bloody vengeance comes to the streets of a British seaside town in this darkly comic horror, which sees a young student turn vigilante on the drunken thugs who caused the death of his kebab shop-owner father – a cutting social commentary about the sordid side of British nightlife.

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »

Movie Review – K-Shop (2016)

19 May 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

K-Shop, 2016.

Directed by Dan Pringle.

Starring: Ziad Abaza, Reece Noi, Scot Williams and Ewen MacIntosh.

Synopsis:

Student Salah loses his father after an altercation with a gang of drunken customers. Overcome with grief, the pressure of his studies and his father’s failing business, Salah, in a modern Sweeney Todd tale, wages war against the drunks that litter his streets.

Writer and director Dan Pringle’s first feature length film, K-Shop, is a thoroughly interesting and comic look at the frightening and realistic state of binge drinking in Britain. K-Shop, offers a distinct blood-tingling insight into the dark side of club culture and much like Rob Hackett’s short, Boris in the Forest, utilises the same narrative framework of Sweeney Todd, minus its musicality.

Pringle himself has tagged his film a contemporary ‘Sweeney Todd thriller’, and much like Sweeney Todd, K-Shop, could well become equally as well known. Filmed in »

Broadway's Secret Weapon

6 May 2016 2:53 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Drew Hodges is at a loss for words. Asked if he’s surprised at the life he’s leading -- did he imagine he’d grow up to fly around the world orchestrating scenes with great actors and artists for his own wildly influential agency -- he pauses three entire seconds. “I wish I had an answer for you,” he says. “It's like, Come for the veal, stay for the floor show.”

You might not know Drew Hodges’ name, but if you’ve enjoyed some form of popular culture in the past decade, you’re living in a world he helped create. "When I started, the idea of theater was still very much that ‘fabulous invalid’ thing," he says, “sort of dying, old, kind of nostalgic. I was lucky enough to work on a lot of stuff that started to chip away at that."

Sweeney Todd High School Production Ends in Injury After Razor Mishap

7 April 2016 3:32 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Perhaps this production of Sweeney Todd was just a little bit too realistic. A high school production of the play in New Zealand went seriously awry on Wednesday when two teenagers were hospitalized due to a mishap with a prop razor, according to Sky News. The incident occurred during the opening night of the production at Saint Kentigern College in Auckland, Sky News reports. During a throat-slitting scene in the play,the prop razor turned out to be not proppy enough, leading to the hospitalization of the teens.

Salem Season 3 Trailer Teases Sin, Skin and the Ultimate Comeback for Mary

5 April 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Raise the dead, and you never know what you raise” goes the dire warning issued by an eye-popping new trailer heralding the Halloween-week kickoff of Salem’s third season. But it would appear that someone — perhaps Mary’s true love, John? Their possessed son? A smitten Sebastian? — goes ahead and resurrects the ill-fated enchantress, anyway.

Thank hell for that!

On Mubi Off #5: "The Official Story" & "Spotlight"

7 March 2016 10:06 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

On Mubi Off is a column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIThe Official Story (Luis Puenzo, 1985)My instinct to stand, whenever possible, slightly outside the zeitgeist leads me to look askew at things like the Academy Awards. To my mind, they're a good excuse to have a party (heavily attended, so I can pay that much less attention to the ceremony itself), though I realize they have a certain fleeting cachet that can boost the prospects of a film or a career. As a metric of quality, however, they're about as worthless as any mass-consensus accolade. I love Oscar-feted films like The Silence of the Lambs and Schindler's List—to name two stopped-clock cases where AMPAS's tastes corresponded to my own—despite and not because of the number of nude »
