Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Bercot to Star in Cedric Kahn’s New Outing, ‘Joyeux Anniversaire’ (Exclusive)

Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Bercot to Star in Cedric Kahn’s New Outing, ‘Joyeux Anniversaire’ (Exclusive)
Cedric Kahn, whose latest film “The Prayer” is competing at the Berlin Film Festival, is re-teaming with producer Sylvie Pialat on his next outing, “Joyeux Anniversaire,” which will bring together Catherine Deneuve, Emmanuelle Bercot and Vincent Macaigne.

A drama laced with biting comedy, “Joyeux Anniversaire” charts a family reunion which takes an unexpected turn. Unfolding over 24 hours, the movie stars Deneuve as a mother of two who gathers her loved ones to celebrate her birthday in her big house near the Loire Valley. The festivities are disrupted by the arrival of her daughter (Bercot), who is known for her unpredictable outbursts.

Kahn, who is also a well-known French actor but has never starred in his own films, will topline as one of Deneuve’s children. Bercot herself previously directed Deneuve in “On My Way” and “Standing Tall,” which opened the Cannes Film Festival in 2015.

Pialat, who is producing via her Paris-based banner Les Films du Worso, said

Manetti Brothers ‘Ammore E Malavita’ to screen at Cinema Made in Italy 2018

The eighth edition of Cinema Made in Italy will launch at the Ciné Lumière in South Kensington on Wednesday 7th March – and the big highlight, at least for me personally, is the UK debut of the Manetti Brothers (pictured above) latest film Ammore E Malavita, aka Love and Bullets.

For those unfamiliar with the Manetti Brothers – Antonio and Marco – the duo were the directors behind the amazing sci-fi horror The Arrival of Wang and produced Daniele Misischia’s fantastic zombie film The End?, which screened at Frightfest last year and I named as one of my Top 10 films of 2017.

Set against the backdrop of (organised) crime in the beguiling Bay of Naples, Love and Bullets has all the elements of a dramatic love story, accompanied by car chases, shoot-outs and spontaneous dance numbers. Defined by some as a ‘Mafia musical’, the latest film by the Manetti Brothers shakes up cinematic genres,

Scores On Screen. Electronica Victoriana: The Soundtrack of "The Innocents"

  • MUBI
Even 56 years after its original release, Jack Clayton’s 1961 gothic horror film The Innocents has lost none of its ability to disturb. Based on Henry James’ Victorian novella The Turn of the Screw, the film is shot in black and white in CinemaScope (a rare pairing of the two), its wide aspect ratio manipulated through the use of eerie lighting by cinematographer Freddie Francis. The film’s striking imagery is visceral, unsettling and hard to forget, but isn’t the only determinant in the tense atmosphere established within the film. The Innocents innovative soundtrack and sound design is responsible for much of the film’s creepy mood and it is showcased from the film’s very first frame.The Innocents opens with a completely blackened screen, a canvas of nothingness from which the sweet singing of a disembodied little girl suddenly emerges. Her gentle voice is heavily reverbed and amplified

Red Dwarf: looking back at the past and ahead to the future

Jamie Andrew Feb 15, 2018

On the 30th anniversary of Red Dwarf airing on BBC Two, one fan revisits his love of the short rouge one...

If not for Doctor Who and Star Trek – two low-key franchises of which I'm sure you're dimly aware – Red Dwarf would be the longest-running, (still in production) sci-fi television series of all time. As a consolation, Red Dwarf can at least claim the distinction of being the longest-running sci-fi television series of all time in which the core cast hasn't been replaced, re-booted or regenerated. But to what extent is this Usp a curse? Thirty-one years is a hell of a long time for a group of guys to be marooned in deep space all wearing the same faces, especially when those faces have visibly sagged and etched and wrinkled over the fast-rolling decades (except in the case of Danny John Jules, who appears to share

Great Double Features I’Ve Seen #1: Smokey And The Bandit (1977) And Convoy (1978)

(This is the first in an occasional series in which I remember some of the best double features I’ve been lucky enough to see projected in a theater.)

The New Beverly Cinema, the oldest surviving revival theater in Los Angeles, has this week dished up a time-capsule glimpse into America’s popular obsession with Cb, or citizen’s band, radio and the largely mythological outlaw trucker culture through which it crackled. If you’re of a certain age (mine), and you ever cruised around town or down the highway jabbering to friends and strangers on an open channel frequency (I did—my handle was The Godfather!), given the opportunity I don’t see how you could possibly resist the chance to see the ultimate trucker-cb action-comedy pairing, Hal Needham’s Smokey and the Bandit and Sam Peckinpah’s Convoy. (I couldn’t!) As of this writing, the morning of

Producer Steve Golin Set to Earn Multiple Nominations this Year

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Producer Steve Golin looks like a lock to earn multiple nominations this season. The man behind such films as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, and Babel holds producer credits on two of this year’s likeliest Oscar contenders: Spotlight and The Revenant.

The Revenant marks Golin’s second collaboration with director Alejandro G. Iñárritu since 2006’s Babel earned seven Oscar nominations, including Golin’s first and only in his career.

Golin is one of the highest profile producers working in Hollywood at the moment, with his production company Anonymous Content (of which he is the founder, president, and CEO) behind such other major productions as Oscar contender The End of the Tour, 2011 best pic nominee Winter’s Bone, and Emmy-winning television series True Detective and The Knick.

While Golin has not yet achieved the star power that fellow super-producers Harvey Weinstein and Brian Grazer have,

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

We still love John Ford's bitter-sentimental look back at the lost Myth of the West. John Wayne and James Stewart are at least thirty years too old for their roles, but everything seems to be happening in a foggy reverie, so what's the difference, Pilgrim?  Great comedy and Lee Marvin's marvelous villain, plus the assertive 'print the Legend' message that's been hotly debated ever since. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance Blu-ray Warner Home Video / Paramount 1962 / B&W / 1:85 widescreen / 123 min. / Street Date October 13, 2015 / 14.98 Starring John Wayne, James Stewart, Vera Miles, Lee Marvin, Edmond O'Brien, Andy Devine, Ken Murray, John Carradine, Jeanette Nolan, John Qualen, Willis Bouchey, Carleton Young, Woody Strode, Denver Pyle, Strother Martin, Lee Van Cleef Cinematography William H.

Remembering Kubrick Actress Gray Pt.2: From The Killing to Leech Woman and Off-Screen School Prayer Amendment Fighter

Coleen Gray in 'The Sleeping City' with Richard Conte. Coleen Gray after Fox: B Westerns and films noirs (See previous post: “Coleen Gray Actress: From Red River to Film Noir 'Good Girls'.”) Regarding the demise of her Fox career (the year after her divorce from Rod Amateau), Coleen Gray would recall for Confessions of a Scream Queen author Matt Beckoff: I thought that was the end of the world and that I was a total failure. I was a mass of insecurity and depended on agents. … Whether it was an 'A' picture or a 'B' picture didn't bother me. It could be a Western movie, a sci-fi film. A job was a job. You did the best with the script that you had. Fox had dropped Gray at a time of dramatic upheavals in the American film industry: fast-dwindling box office receipts as a result of competition from television,

Watchmen's long journey from page to screen

Feature Mark Harrison 22 Apr 2014 - 06:46

Alan Moore always said his graphic novel was unfilmable, and for a while, that almost looked true. Mark looks at attempts to adapt Watchmen

It's now been just over five years since Zack Snyder brought Watchmen, the acclaimed comic series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, to the big screen. Whatever you think of the final film, you could hardly say that the source material was easy to adapt.

Moore's thought-provoking script and Gibbons' detailed artwork came together to make one of the most acclaimed comic series ever created- frequently referred to as comics' answer to The Godfather. Some argue that the comic book movie genre got its Godfather with The Dark Knight in 2008, but studios were trying to adapt Watchmen long before that.

In fact, Hollywood's flirtations with the material date all the way back to the period when Tim Burton's Batman became a huge hit,

Non-Stop Producer Joel Silver Bashes Watchmen, Reveals His Version’s (Terrible) End Twist

It’s really hard to make a great movie and really easy to disparage a bad one, and that’s in large part why it’s so rare to hear people inside Hollywood publicly calling out or even mocking their colleagues for ill-received projects. However, in a recent interview to promote his Liam Neeson thriller Non-Stop, prolific producer Joel Silver didn’t hold back about a project he once spent years fruitlessly developing: Zack Snyder’s adaptation of the iconic graphic novel Watchmen.

When he spoke with Coming Soon, Silver had nothing but criticism for Snyder’s film, which divided critics when it saw wide release in 2009 (though, for our money, we enjoyed Watchmen so much that we ranked it as one of the five greatest comic-book/superhero movies of all time). Most notably, he opined that his ultimately scuttled version, which had Terry Gilliam attached to direct, would have been a far superior adaptation,

Honorary Oscar-Winning Stunt Worker Who Directed Burt Reynolds in Several of His Biggest Hits Has Died

Stuntman and Burt Reynolds director Hal Needham dead at 82: Received Honorary Oscar in November 2012 Veteran stuntman and stunt coordinator Hal Needham, whose stunt-work movie credits ranged from John Ford Westerns to Roman Polanski’s Chinatown, and who directed a handful of popular action comedies starring Burt Reynolds, died today, October 25, 2013, in Los Angeles. Needham, who had been suffering from cancer, was 82. (See also: "Stunt Worker Hal Needham: Honorary Oscar 2012".) Born in Memphis, Tennessee, on March 6, 1931, Hal Needham began his long Hollywood stuntman career in the mid-’50s. A former tree trimmer and paratrooper, and a motorcycle and car racer, Needham performed stunts in both big-screen and small-screen Westerns, such as John Ford’s 1962 classic The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, starring John Wayne and James Stewart; the all-star 1963 Best Picture Academy Award nominee How the West Was Won; and the television series Have Gun - Will Travel, doubling for star Richard Boone.

Top 7 Comedic Self Cameos in Film

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

While turning the apocalypse into a party, the new comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg This Is the End is a celebrity-filled powwow that embraces the value of a cameo, giving its extensive guest list a chance to appear as goofier versions of themselves. With some of the movie’s best jokes coming from its surprise impressions (Michael Cera and his windbreaker are doomsday stealers), it’s time to celebrate the wall-breaking comedy that is a self cameo.

The rules for this specific list are that the comedic cameo must feature the star playing themselves. Such appearances are not considered for being the funniest, but the best overall. These are the appearances that go beyond simply making a film experience feel more like it’s in our reality (as opposed to Movie World), instead providing something special to the film and/or

Phil’s Top 10 Films of 2012

Well here it is. After hinting at some of the films on Twitter and promising that this will be unlike any top ten you see this year, I’ve finally compiled my Top 10 films of 2012. However, I originally compiled my list before seeing Pitch Perfect, which I felt Had to be included in this list; therefore my choices for ninth and tenth film on the list now share tenth place.

I’ve also included a hell of a lot of honorable mentions (enough to take this up to a Top 25 if I had included them all), three of which are short films. Three short films which happen to be the best I’ve seen in years and give some of the feature-length films released this year a run for their money. Consider everything on this list a recommendation of the highest order…

'Smokey and the Bandit': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Burt Reynolds Movie

Of the two biggest franchise-launchers of 1977, one involved a pair of rebellious outlaws with a shaggy sidekick, a runaway heroine, a Mutt-and-Jeff pair of tall-short comic relief characters, epic-length chases, spectacular stunts, and endless vehicular mayhem. The other was "Star Wars." Yep, we're talkin' "Smokey and the Bandit," which opened 35 years ago this week (on May 27, 1977) and wound up grossing more money than any movie that year except for George Lucas' interstellar road adventure. It also launched a truckload of sequels on film and TV, gave Burt Reynolds his most iconic role, helped make movie stars out of country guitarist Jerry Reed and TV sitcom starlet Sally Field, provided a career comeback for Jackie Gleason, and sent Pontiac Trans Am sales soaring. Still, as popular as Reynolds and his muscle car were, there's plenty about "Smokey and the Bandit" that you may not know. Read on to learn Bandit's real name,
