Tiff Reveals First Slate of 2017 Titles, Including ‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘Downsizing,’ and ‘Call Me By Your Name’

25 July 2017 7:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year’s Toronto International Film Festival still is over a month from kicking off, but the starry annual event is pulling out zero stops when it comes to its first official slate announcement. The festival will close out with Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledo’s “C’est la vie!,” and the Special Presentations section will open with Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, “Lady Bird,” and close with Amr Salama’s “Sheikh Jackson.”

Today’s first glimpse of this year’s programing include a slew of 2017’s most anticipated features, including Guillermo del Toro’s adult fairy tale “The Shape of Water,” Alexander Payne’s Matt Damon-starring comedy “Downsizing,” Darren Aronofsky’s secretive “mother!,” George Clooney’s reportedly uber-violent “Suburbicon,” and Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

And that is just the tip of a very big iceberg, one that today includes the announcement of both Gala and Special Presentations titles. »

Annecy Film Review: ‘Loving Vincent’

18 June 2017 3:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stand in front of a painting by Vincent van Gogh for more than five minutes, and your brain starts to react in strange ways. Even today, more than a century after the artist’s death, the brushstrokes pack an almost psychedelic energy, vibrating with an intensity that seems to have sprung directly from van Gogh’s tortured personal life. Now imagine staring at one of these paintings for 90 minutes straight — or crazier still, watching a series of them actually start to move.

Such was the vision Polish animator Dorota Kobiela had for “Loving Vincent,” a truly awe-inspiring portrait of the great Dutch artist that boasts the distinction of being “the world’s first fully painted feature film.” That means every one of the nearly 65,000 frames in this near-lunatic labor of love was rendered by hand with oil paints, following a style intended to mimic that of the master — which has »

Saudi Director Haifaa Al Mansour Set for ‘The Perfect Candidate’ (Exclusive)

22 May 2017 9:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Saudi Arabian director Haifaa Al-Mansour, who with “Wadjda” became the first female filmmaker in of her country, is set to return to Saudi Arabia to shoot “The Perfect Candidate,” a drama with comedic elements about a young female physician who maneuvers through her conservative, male-dominated society to run in the municipal council elections.

Shooting on the Arabic-language pic is expected to start in Saudi Arabia in the second half of 2018, said producers Roman Paul and Gerhard Meixner, whose Berlin-based Razor Films produced “Wadjda.”

They described “The Perfect Candidate” as a somewhat ironic look at the new developments in Saudi Arabia caused by women being able to be elected on a local political level.

The film’s Saudi protagonist is frustrated after being turned back at the airport because her travel permission from her male guardian wasn’t up to date, so she embarks on an absurd campaign, balancing strict social norms, »

Official Trailer for Gothic Horror 'The Limehouse Golem' with Bill Nighy

10 May 2017 4:57 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He who observes spills no less blood than he who inflicts the blow." Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for The Limehouse Golem, a new gothic horror film that premiered at the Toronto and Sitges Film Festivals last year. Bill Nighy stars a London detective investigating the mysterious case of the "Limehouse Golem", a meticulous serial killer haunting the streets of Victorian London. The cast includes Olivia Cooke, Sam Reid, Douglas Booth, Eddie Marsan, Daniel Mays, Maria Valverde, and Morgan Watkins. I do remember hearing some good things out of the film festivals last year, and this certainly looks interesting. There's obviously some twists and turns, hopefully, and it seems like a chilling gothic thriller the likes of Sherlock Holmes meets Jack the Ripper. This may be a perfect film for October, or anytime for horror fans. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Juan Carlos Medina's The Limehouse Golem, from »

Bill Nighy Tracks a Serial Killer in First Trailer for ‘The Limehouse Golem’

9 May 2017 4:46 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Bill Nighy gets to play leading man for a change in Juan Carlos Medina’s Victorian serial killer thriller The Limehouse Golem. Based on the 1994 Peter Ackroyd novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem, the film tracks a serial killer stalking the squalid streets of Victorian London in 1880 — eight years before Jack the Ripper would make infamous headlines. Nighy plays Detective Inspector John Kildare, who is tasked with tracking down the mysterious murderer who slaughters several unconnected victims and leaves cryptic messages written in blood. The film, like Ackroyd’s novel, blends fact and fiction, mixing historical figures like Karl Marx and music hall comedian Dan Leno, all set against a dreary, blood-soaked backdrop.

Nighy’s part was originally intended for the late Alan Rickman, who had to leave the part due to his deteriorating health. Olivia Cooke, Douglas Booth, Eddie Marsan round out the cast. After a Tiff premiere »

One of my favourite films at Tiff 2016, The Limehouse Golem, directed by Juan Carlos Medina and written by Jane Goldman, takes us to the bloody streets and raunchy theatre halls of late 19th century London. Rich in detail and harrowing in suspense, it combines the traditional British murder-mystery with giallo-styled death and mayhem. And now you can get a taste with the first trailer released from Lionsgate. A serial killer is plaguing the streets of London. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Cree (Olivia Cooke), a former music hall performer, is charged with the murder of her husband. Detective Kildare (Bill Nighy) must tackle both these cases, learning about Elizabeth's strange life, her relationship with fellow performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth), and the beliefs of the locals of...
