Stephen Frears to receive honorary Sarajevo award

18 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

British director’s latest film, Florence Foster Jenkins, to screen at the festival’s open air theatre.

Stephen Frears, the British director of The Queen and Philomena, is to receive the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award at the 22nd Sarajevo Film Festival (Aug 12-20).

Frears, who was previously the subject of the festival’s tribute programme in 2002, will have his latest film - Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant - screened as part of Sarajevo’s Open Air programme.

Previous recipients of the honorary award have included Angelina Jolie, Gael Garcia Bernal, Mike Leigh and last year Benicio del Toro.

4K Hdr TV Boom Goes International With Globo (Exclusive)

18 July 2016 5:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid — Showcasing the latest in TV technology, Brazil’s Globo, Latin America’s biggest network, will from Monday offer its flagship production “Dangerous Liaisons” in 4K High Dynamic Range to users of its Globo Play VOD service.

Netflix (“Marco Polo”), Amazon (“Mozart in the Jungle”) and Vudu already offer content in 4K Hdr, a standard backed by Hollywood studios and YouTube. But Globo is the first of any mainstream broadcaster, and the first non-u.S. company known to several analysts consulted by Variety, to offer content in the format.

The move reflects a trend on display at January’s Consumer Electronics Show: that 4K Hdr is becoming a new broadcast standard.

Conventional broadcasters were not expected to make the jump into Hdr until 2017. Globo’s early foray with “Dangerous Liaisons” raises the question whether 4K Hdr production and distribution by other free-to-air broadcasters could come online faster than anticipated.

Described by Variety as the “darling” of the »

John Malkovich To Headline New Comic Book Convention Comedy Supercon

1 July 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic-Con. WonderCon. BlizzCon. Supercon? Variety brings word that John Malkovich has closed a deal to headline a new comedy rooted in the crowded, sweaty and blistering world of comic book conventions.

Filming is already underway on the New Orelans set of Supercon, and comes packing a cracking premise. Malkovich, along with a host of comic book artists and TV stars past their prime, will anchor the feature as a band of down-on-their-luck industry people that make a living from attending comic book conventions.

Ticked off by their downward spiral, Malkovich and Co. set about hatching a plan to rob Supercon and “bring justice to a crooked promoter and an overbearing former TV icon.” Zak Knutson will orchestrate the shenanigans from behind the lens, working from a script he penned alongside Andrew SipesJoey Tufaro and Todd Trosclair produce alongside Momentum ProductionsSusan Gorrell and Maria J. McDonald.

Reader's Choice: Cruel Intentions (1999)

23 March 2016 6:40 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Wednesday nights are now devoted to you. We'll alternate between a Q&A and a Reader's Choice Movie. So you are essentially picking the topics each week. We started with Gattaca but y'all kept asking for Cruel Intentions so here we are again.

Believe it or not, I've never seen Cruel Intentions (1999) so I gladly accept the multiple requests to discuss. This is written and directed by someone named Roger Kumble and the name did not ring a bell. It turns out he's still working, mostly on television and he's working on a TV sequel to this very movie. I missed this news somehow but Sarah Michelle Gellar is reprising her role so this post is more timely than I meant it to be.

The credits also inform us that it's only "suggested by" Dangerous Liaisons.  That's a fancy word for adapted if you want to compete in Original Screenplay at the Oscars. »

Stephen Frears on Lance Armstrong, Doping and Why Theaters Trump Phones

23 March 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stephen Frears is a directing chameleon.

In a career that’s spanned more than three decades, the English filmmaker has moved effortlessly from drawing room intrigue in “Dangerous Liaisons” to working class gay romance in”My Beautiful Laundrette” to noirish double crosses in “The Grifters.” In “The Program,” a look at disgraced Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, he tackles the world of competitive sports, exposing a competitive mentality that warps moral compasses and encourages people to do anything to get an edge.

Frears spoke with Variety about Armstrong’s use of performance enhancing drugs, what excites him as a filmmaker, and why he has yet to join the streaming generation.

Were you a fan of cycling? Did you watch Armstrong win all those tournaments?

I knew absolutely nothing about cycling or about Lance Armstrong or about drugs and doping.

What did you learn about the sport?

They’re crazy people. »

10 Questions We Hope the Cruel Intentions TV Spin-Off Answers

2 March 2016 8:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last week, fans of Sarah Michelle Gellar delighted at the news that she'd be reprising one of her most popular characters on a new TV series. Realistically speaking, that news was probably followed immediately by the clarification, "No, not Buffy and no, not Kendall Hart, but one of the others ones," but it's still reason to be excited. Cruel Intentions stood out from the rest during the late '90s teen movie boom. It was nasty, it was sexy and it was fun - and as manipulative bad girl Kathryn Mertuil, it let Gellar flex some acting muscles she didn't get to use on Buffy. »

15 Actors You Won't Believe Have Never Won an Oscar

20 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year around Oscar time it seems like we always end up falling into the same debate: Who deserves to win best (Insert Category) here. There are many actors, directors, writers and others who have been nominated but have never taken home the gold statuette. Now, the reality is that films take a long time for directors to get made and writers take a long time to get a script right. But actors have a better set of odds, because they can make multiple films in any given year.

This isn't to say that acting is easier than any of the aforementioned jobs. It just means that, if the Academy likes an actor, and they make a lot of films, their chances to gain Oscar gold are that much better. A great case in point is how many times they has been nominated? 19. How many Oscars has she taken home? »
