Gaumont, Eclair to restore 100 feature films

26 May 2017 4:34 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Robert Bresson’s Lancelot Du Lac [pictured] included in deal.

French mini-major Gaumont and Eclair, the European cinema technologies specialists and part of Ymagis group, are joining forces to restore more than 100 feature films.

The films will be selected from Gaumont’s catalogue. The deal is an extension of a pre-existing partnership that has already seen Eclair restore a number of the company’s film library using digital technology.

In 2016, Eclair restored 25 Gaumont features, including Louis Malle’s My Dinner With André (1981), Maurice Tourneur’s Samson (1936) and André Barsacq’s Le Rideau Rouge (1952).

Titles selected for 2017 include Julien Duvivier’s Untel Père Et Fils (1945) and L’homme Du Jour (1937) Jacques Doillon’s La Femme Qui Pleure (1979) and Robert Bresson’s Lancelot Du Lac (1974).

Since Eclair launched its restoration division in 2000, more than 750 films have been restored by the company.

Yves Gringuillard heads up the restoration and preservation side of the business, which has a staff »

Chris Pine And Michelle Williams To Star In All The Old Knives

5 May 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Variety is reporting that Chris Pine and Michelle Williams are in negotiations to appear in the next film from Theory of Everything director James Marsh. It’s a spy thriller titled All The Old Knives and is adapted for the screen by Olen Steinhauer from his novel of the same name.

The film features a tense romance between former and current CIA agents Henry and Celia. They’ve been an item in the past and reunite for a dinner to discuss their old activities. Soon, however, conversation turns to the disastrous hijacking of Royal Jordanian Flight 127, which crashed and killed all aboard. The catastrophe haunts the CIA’s Vienna team to this day, and it’s not long before this innocent sounding dinner is revealed to have deeper implications. Has Henry come to try and make his relationship with Celia work, or is he trying to see whether she’s involved in a shady conspiracy? »

Netflix’s New Ratings System Is a Terrible Idea

20 March 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Whatever future of entertainment may hold, it’s reasonable to assume Netflix will play some role in determining it. The company is at the forefront of defining home viewing habits and the ways in which audiences can discover its library of movies and television. It’s a fickle process, one that doesn’t favor the discovery of edgier content. So it was particularly dispiriting to learn that sometime in April, Netflix will abandon its five-star ratings in favor of a thumbs up/thumbs down approach.

“Five stars feels very yesterday now,” said Netflix VP of product Todd Yellin in a press briefing. He went on to suggest that star ratings hurt its business investments in catalogs of titles, noting that “bubbling up the stuff people actually want to watch is super important.”

However, that logic holds only if you believe the only important metric is giving the audience exactly what it wants — and nothing else. »

The Before Trilogy

28 February 2017 2:52 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Who would have thought that a ’90s ‘slacker’ independent filmmaker would make such a strong romantic statement? Well, it’s not all romance in the old sense. In what must be a project of love, Richard Linklater examines the ongoing love life of Jesse & Céline, in three movies spread across eighteen years. The conversations are as free- flowing as are the cameras roaming through European back streets. Thanks to the commitment of Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, the in-depth relationship seems real.

Girls season 6 episode 3 review: American Bitch

Girls season 6 tackles another bottle episode in easily its best instalment so far this run...

This review contains spoilers.

6.3 American Bitch

Well, well, it’s another Girls bottle episode about Hannah in a house with a dude. This certainly invites comparisons to season two’s One Man’s Trash, but they’re not actually all that similar. The season premiere—with its hazy, too-positive, sex-filled surreality (that subsequently comes crashing back to reality) was far more Trash-like. Though this one is more contained, the tone is sober almost throughout, with the plot focused on a discussion between Hannah and a successful author, Chuck Palmer (Matthew Rhys), about a scathing article she wrote about him. It’s less like One Man’s Trash and more like My Dinner With Andre.

‘The Master And Margarita,’ Influential Russian Novel About The Devil In Moscow, Optioned For Feature Film

14 February 2017 10:06 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: It’s a book that has inspired other iconic works. Many lines in the Rolling Stones’ song Sympathy for the Devil are from its pages. Comparisons have been made between it and Salmon Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses, even by the author himself. It’s been tapped for material by artist H.R. Giger, the band Pearl Jam, in movies such as My Dinner with Andre, and even in Star Trek. And now, this book about the devil visiting 1930s Moscow right after Christ’s crucifixion… »

'The Young Pope' Recap: Out of Africa

6 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It was the best of Popes, it was the worst of Popes. Tonight's episode contained both individual shots and lengthy segments that are as successful as anything the HBO show has put on screen so far – but it's also the first installment of the series that feels like a substantial failure. It's oddly appropriate: The storyline, in which Pope Pius Xiii exits his comfort zone by leaves the cozy confines of his papal palaces and travels abroad to meet his public, is the one in which co-writer/director Paolo Sorrentino wanders off course himself. »
