Luke Evans Goes To The Dark Side In First Dracula Untold Trailer

24 June 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You think you know the story of Dracula, the blood-sucking Prince of Darkness himself? Think again! If you thought that the Twilight saga, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, HBO’s True Blood and NBC’s Dracula had successfully squeezed all the life from Hollywood’s recent vampire craze… you’re probably right. But that’s not about to stop Universal Pictures from trying to sell you yet another vampire flick this fall with Dracula Untold.

The first trailer for the epic medieval fantasy paints Dracula as the valiant Vlad Tepes (Luke Evans), who makes a deal with the Devil in order to protect his young son from invading Turks. It’s interesting that a character so traditionally vilified will be first seen as a hero in Dracula Untold – but hey, if it worked for Maleficent, who’s saying it won’t work this time around?

The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga | 2014 Hot Docs Review

12 May 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Of Forest and Folklore: Oreck Lenses Extraordinary Essay on Eastern European Relationship with Land and Myth

Recently, Jessica Oreck has been settling into a more time sensitive short form with her ambitious etymology web series Mysteries of Vernacular, in which she unearths the surprising origins of the English language in two minute snippets. It’s understandable when you consider her densely layered latest feature, The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga, has been over five years in the making. The project began as an ethnographic exploration of Eastern European mushroom foragers in line with her beetle hunting debut Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo, but it’s since transformed into something much more mysteriously enigmatic. Oreck’s dreamy tale unfurls as a poetic travelogue of a timeless Slavic territory, its inhabitants still following long held traditions and bearing all the scars of the region’s tumultuous history. The abiding antiquity of her »

Universal Scores "Wicked" Author's Next

27 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal Pictures has optioned the film rights to "Wicked" author Gregory Maguire's upcoming fantasy book "Egg and Spoon". Marc Platt, who produced the "Wicked" Broadway show, will produce the 'Egg' film.

The story follows a young girl who lives with her sick mother in the impoverished Russian countryside. A train arrives, carrying untold wealth and a noble family which includes a girl of her age.

The two girls' lives collide, setting a grand adventure - involving mistaken identity and a prince traveling incognito - in motion. The story also includes the famed Russian folklore witch Baba Yaga.

Maguire is known for penning revisionist takes of children's fairytales, with his reinvention of L. Frank Baum's "Oz" series leading to the Broadway musical which is now celebrating its tenth year. Stephen Daldry remains attached to direct the long gestating film adaptation at Universal.

Universal Wins Egg & Spoon Race

27 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With the adaptation of Gregory Maguire’s Oz-twisting fantasy tome Wicked now a proven stage sensation, having scored Tony awards and been performed worldwide in the 10 years since it first opened, you might imagine that rights holders Universal would be quick to jump on other Maguire books. You’d be right: the studio has optioned his upcoming story Egg & Spoon.Another fantastical tale with roots in an established story, Egg & Spoon focuses on a young girl dealing with an impoverished life in the Russian countryside. Her existence is one of scrabble and struggle, finding food while caring for her sick mother. Then one day a train arrives, bearing untold wealth and a noble family that includes a girl our heroine’s age. Soon, the two young women’s’ lives are colliding, with mistaken identity and a take on one of the most famous fairy tale tropes, an incognito prince, thrown in for good measure. »

Film Review: ‘The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga’

7 April 2014 6:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nature and civilization square off in Jessica Oreck’s poetic meditation-cum-documentary “The Vanquishing of the Witch Baba Yaga.” Alternating between two complementary narratives (fairy-tale and cultural-anthropological) in two languages (Russian and Polish) and two formats (animation and live-action), Oreck spins a mesmerizing web that appropriates a wealth of disparate Eastern European images — of mushrooms, farmers, falling trees and war-destroyed buildings — to illustrate its lyrical discourse. Probably less accessible than Oreck’s feted entomological curio “Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo,” “Baba Yaga” ventures closer to experimental film, breaking new ground with calls to the collective unconscious that should lure adventurous arthouse auds.

The story Oreck tells is simple: Man, fearing nature’s wildness, builds walls against it and demonizes it in folklore. But there is another, far more violent force within man himself that, once unleashed, sends him fleeing to a wilderness that now affords sanctuary. Eastern Europe, with its war-torn history »

The Whole Town's Talking: Impressions of the 2014 True/False Film Fest

24 March 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: The Apple

The celebratory attitude at the True/False Film Festival in Columbia, Missouri, speaks to the healthy state of nonfiction filmmaking at present. True to its name, the festival spotlights new films that incorporate elements of both fiction and documentary (and sometimes blur the line between the two), yet even the selections that resemble more traditional investigative reporting uphold a certain standard of artfulness. More impressively, the festival organizers make a point of incorporating the Columbia community into the celebration. Somewhere between 700 and 900 residents of the town and surrounding areas volunteered at the fest this year, and many businesses I encountered seemed happy to get in on the act too. (“Don’t be fooled by False advertising,” read my favorite sandwich board. “Try our True Thai cuisine!”) Roughly half of the screenings took place in locations not usually reserved for movies—a rock venue, a couple of churches, »
