‘Marshall’ Origin Myth Leads Weak Biopics at Specialty Box Office

15 October 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which debuted in competition in Cannes and scored fresh acclaim at the New York Film Festival, is a day-and-date Netflix release, so no numbers are reported. It’s likely that the family comedy starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Dustin Hoffman, who all did substantial press, played well enough at high-end theaters in New York and L.A. to take a bite out of its competitors.

Despite the lack of reported numbers, a glance at the pre-buy seating chart for the Landmark theater in West Los Angeles for Sunday shows in a theater with over 100 seats that are close to sellouts hours ahead of time suggests a weekend total that might be roughly $20,000 (roughly).That’s impressive for a film that any Netflix subscriber can see at home.

Other openers continued the string of movies about real people that are dominating the specialized release schedule. »

Brett Morgen’s Jane Goodall Doc ‘Jane’ Swings in to Hollywood Bowl Mega Premiere (Photos)

10 October 2017 5:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Decades before “Planet Earth,” “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Naked and Afraid,” or even kids’ “Nature Cards” in the 1980’s, Jane Goodall was nature and environmental media’s “Eve.” At 83, Eve headlined the Hollywood Bowl on Monday night as the star of Brett Morgen’s feature documentary “Jane.” National Geographic, which will release the film in theaters later this month, leveled-up with a King Kong-sized outdoor seated dinner, premiere, and live orchestra scoring the film for over 15,000 guests.

Critics Pick the Best Documentary TV Series Ever, From ‘The Jinx’ to ’30 for 30’ – IndieWire Survey

19 September 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s the best documentary series you’ve seen on TV? Opening this up to past series, current ones, and those that you may have seen screeners for that are coming up soon.

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

While we debate whether or not it technically counts as a TV show (certainly that Oscar it won would suggest otherwise), “O.J.: Made in America” was without question a seminal work, and one which owed a lot to its episodic structure while proving to be an addictive binge. Documentaries aren’t exactly my favorite genre, but “Made in America” was as gripping as any scripted series — and we have definitive proof of this, »

Shelter and Sanctuary: Close-Up on Jorge Thielen Armand’s "La Soledad"

18 August 2017 7:54 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Jorge Thielen Armand's La Soledad (2016) will be showing August 19 - 24 at the Ica in London, and playing on Mubi from September 1 - October 1, 2017 in the United Kingdom. “One might regard architecture as history arrested in stone.”—A. L. Rowse, The Use of HistoryI. End of Home. End of History.In Jorge Thielen Armand’s La Soledad, the home holds many histories. Belonging to the filmmaker’s great-grandparents, this home, dubbed ‘The Solitude’ by its original owners, is an ancient mansion that, in its dereliction, displays its years like folds in the skin. Each crack creeping down the wall, straggling weed searching up through the paving, or unidentifiable stain spreading across the wallpaper layers the building with historical information; each tiny mark made tells a small part of a larger, continuing story.

Box Office: ‘Annabelle: Creation’ Levitates to No. 1 With $35 Million

13 August 2017 7:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annabelle: Creation” may not be able to save the summer — which, after this weekend, will only fall farther behind last year’s pace — but it is doing its part to frighten audiences into theaters.

The latest from New Line and Warner Bros, which serves as the fourth installment in what has become the “Conjuring” extended universe, is casting its evil eye on $35 million from 3,502 locations. That’s a strong start for the horror flick, which was made for about $15 million.

The track record for the franchise is strong — “Annabelle” ($37.1 million); “The Conjuring” ($41.9 million); and “The Conjuring 2” ($40.4 million). David F. Sandberg directed the sequel about a dollmaker whose creation terrorizes a group of orphan girls. For those invested in the “Conjuring” canon, it serves as a prequel to the first “Annabelle.” Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony Lapaglia, and Miranda Otto star in the pic that critics have generally given a thumbs up »

Box Office: ‘Annabelle: Creation’ Conjuring $36 Million Domestic Debut

12 August 2017 8:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annabelle: Creation” isn’t just fleshing out New Line Cinema’s self-proclaimed “Conjuring Universe,” it’s also helping to save the back half of the summer box office. The prequel to 2014’s “Annabelle” is conjuring up a $36 million domestic debut.

According to estimates, Warner Bros.’ supernatural horror will easily win its opening weekend after taking in $15 million from 3,502 locations on Friday, including Thursday night previews. Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Stephanie Sigman, Miranda Otto, and Anthony Lapaglia star in the origin story behind the killer, antique doll from director David F. Sandberg.

Also in the double digits for WB, “Dunkirk” continues to steamroll its blockbuster competition in second place. Despite being in its fourth frame, Christopher Nolan’s World War II drama is expected to add just under $11 million to its total after making just over $3 million from 3,762 screens on Friday. That number is also expected to officially put »

Joe versus the Volcano

6 June 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“May you live to be a thousand years old, sir.” Still the most widely unheralded great movie on the books, John Patrick Shanley’s lightweight/profound fable is an unmitigated delight. See Tom Hanks at the end of the first phase of his career plus Meg Ryan in an unacknowledged career highlight. How can a movie be so purposely insubstantial, and yet be ‘heavier’ than a dozen pictures with ‘big things to say?’

Directors' Trademarks: James Cameron

5 June 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. This month, we’re looking at the trademark style and calling signs of James Cameron as director.

In college, James Cameron decided that he wanted to be a screenwriter. He switched from majoring in Physics to majoring in English, before eventually deciding to drop out and raise money to start his career. During that time, he worked many odd jobs, until he was finally inspired by Star Wars in 1977 to start his career in the film industry. In the early 1980’s he first worked as a miniature model builder at Roger Corman studios, demonstrating a talent for creating innovative special effects. Over time, he became a production designer, and special effects director. In 1981, he was a special effects director for the film Piranha II: The Spawning. Numerous production delays cost the original director his job, »

Who can resist a photo of a baby gorilla? No one we’ve ever met.

Animals with similar magnetism are flooding the Internet right now in honor of #EndangeredSpeciesDay, and while it’s an excuse to look at photos of adorable animals, it’s also a stoic reminder of how much better our world is with them in it.

Endangered.org says the day was created in 2006 by the U.S. Congress, to celebrate our nation’s wildlife and wild places. Nature conservancies and various organizations are sharing sweet photos today to remind humans of just how many animals are in trouble, »

Max Richter, ‘The Leftovers’ Composer, Signs With Decca Publishing

26 April 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

German composer Max Richter, whose ambient, post-minimalist style has made him popular with directors as from Michael Scorsese to Michael Bay, is the first artist to sign a long-term, global publishing deal with Universal Music’s newly launched Decca Publishing.

Richter has been the composer of record on HBO’s “The Leftovers,” now in season three, and excerpts from “On the Nature of Daylight,” from his 2004 album “The Blue Notebooks,” can be heard in Scorsese’s 2010 film” Shutter Island” and 2016’s “Arrival” (which its integral use to bookend the narrative resulted in Oscar disqualification for Jóhann Jóhannsson’s score).

Richter’s music was also a standout among Super Bowl 51 syncs, providing the evocative backing track to Paramount’s promo for this summer’s “Transformers: The Last Knight.” For all that, Richter is still a relative unknown in mainstream entertainment circles, something Universal and Decca plan to change.

Jonestown Massacre Biographer on the Question: How Successful Would Jim Jones’ Cult Be Today?

11 April 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jeff Guinn doesn’t like the expression “drinking the Kool-Aid.”

First, he says, it’s inaccurate: Most of the 918 people who died in the 1977 Jonestown massacre in a remote commune in Guyana, in South America, actually killed themselves by drinking a cyanide solution laced with Flavor Aid, an inexpensive knock-off.

More troubling to Guinn is the glib judgment implied in that expression — and how it has too simply come to represent the willingness of fools to follow deranged leaders.

As Guinn found out while researching and writing The Road to Jonestown: Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple, released in bookstores on Tuesday, »

Wild Ireland: Edge of the World review – one man in a banana-shaped boat. Magic

17 March 2017 11:20 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Nature cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson lolls with puffins, seals, dolphins and natterjack toads on a gorgeous coastal journey in the Emerald Isle

You can see why Christian monks came to the Skellig Islands 1,500 years ago. Jagged pyramids of rock pierce the surface of the Atlantic where they believed the very ends of the Earth were. It must have been the perfect place to contemplate life and God. It still is, I imagine, though the monks are long gone.

Now it’s just gannets, gulls and shearwaters. And nature cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson setting off in his traditional banana-shaped rowing boat called a currach up the Atlantic coast of the Emerald Isle, seeking out its secret places and creatures. This is Wild Ireland: Edge of the World (BBC2), and it’s magic.

Kong: Skull Island Review

2 March 2017 1:58 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kong: Skull Island compares to an animated theme-park ride (valiantly, I must add). An exciting, Vietnam-era coaster enclosed by digital screens. From Kong’s hasty introduction, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts asserts his reboot with a mighty roar. Gone is Peter Jackson’s flabby primate, traded for a muscular, toned God-figure who’s been maxing his jungle gym membership. Tight glutes (like, super-defined) will come in handy when challenging Gareth EdwardsGodzilla, but that’s a few years down the road still. First comes a military invasion sold on scientific motivations, and a lunatic commander who calls for Kong’s monstrous head. Hold on to your butts (Oh yea, Sammy J. resurrects our favorite quote), crank some Creedence and pick a side – the king is back, baby.

Vogt-Roberts opens on Monarch brass Bill Randa (John Goodman), who secures government approval for an uncharted island expedition. The mystery landmass – dubbed “Skull Island” – is said to house legendary beasts, »

‘Planet Earth II’: A Guide to Enhancing Your Viewing Experience of TV’s Most Stunning Show

16 February 2017 4:04 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A show like “Planet Earth II” doesn’t come around every day. In fact, it’s been 10 years since the original nature docuseries wowed the world with mind-blowing filmmaking that was both visually breathtaking and emotionally stirring. Now it’s back and better than ever, featuring even more rare looks at the world around us, great storytelling and the original narration by David Attenborough (last time, we Yanks got the Sigourney Weaver dub).

‘Planet Earth II’ Producers Reveal 6 Sneaky Ways They Filmed Their Animal Stars

15 February 2017 2:55 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been a decade since the original “Planet Earth” became a cultural event on TV, thanks to its stunning filmmaking and unparalleled access to the natural world. Since then, the team has surpassed its previous efforts to capture footage for “Planet Earth II,” thanks to innovations in technology and good old-fashioned human tenacity.

Being able to observe the natural world is not as easy as sending out a cameraman to just point and shoot. Elusive snow leopards are rare and avoid humans, soaring birds spiral up and down heights with dizzying speed, some predators are too dangerous to get near, many prey animals are too skittish to hang around humans, and some animals — such as a massive population of penguins that rule a remote island — are simply too difficult to access because of the unfriendly terrain.
