Jeremy Irons on ‘Dead Ringers,’ ‘Batman v Superman,’ Love Scenes in ‘Damage’

12 December 2014 11:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Speaking to Variety at this year’s Marrakech film festival, British actor Jeremy Irons talked about his roles in movies set for 2015 or beyond: Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman,” in which he plays butler Alfred; romantic drama “The Correspondence,” from Giuseppe Tornatore (“Cinema Paradiso”), in which he co-stars with Blake Lively; and Ben Wheatley’s “High Rise,” based on J. G. Ballard’s novel.

He was amused by the idea that he’s being once again typecast as a professor in Tornatore’s first English-language pic, clarifying that he will actually play an astrophysicist.

In relation to Wheatley’s political thriller, “High Rise,” in which he co-stars with Sienna Miller, he confided that U.K. producer Jeremy Thomas asked him why he never stars in British independent films. He said that he accepted the role because he was won over by the young director, who believes strongly in the project. »

‘The Theory of Everything’ Review

25 November 2014 2:46 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Eddie RedmayneFelicity JonesTom Prior | Written by Anthony McCarten | Directed by James Marsh

Biopics of infamous figures are a tough shell to crack. In order to adequately cover the massive scope of someone’s life you are left with a bullet point like approach where we move from one infamous moment to the next. We get to see the macro of life—massive accomplishments, heartbreaking failures, and overcoming and enduring unimaginable tragedy. The micro of life, who they are beyond the already established public sentiment, is quickly brushed over in order to get to the familiar story we already know.

Obviously this is not the case for all biopics as some have transcended the genre on a number of occasions. Director James Marsh is one of the latest to attempt to do the biopic right with the film The Theory of Everything, which covers the life of renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. »

Giusseppe Tornatore Reflects on ‘Cinema Paradiso’ 25 Years After Its Oscar Win

18 November 2014 5:54 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

1989: it’s not only a Taylor Swift album, but also the year that changed Giuseppe Tornatore’s life. That much became clear when I sat down with the 58-year-old Italian filmmaker — who is best known for directing Cinema Paradiso, a semi-autobiographical film about a young cinephile which won the Cannes Film Festival’s grand jury prize and the best foreign language film Oscar in that final year of the eighties — last week at a hotel in Beverly Hills.

Giuseppe Tornatore: The Hollywood Interview

Giuseppe Tornatore Remembers as Cinema Paradiso Turns 25

By Alex Simon

Giuseppe Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso won the 1990 Best Foreign Film Oscar after setting box office records the previous year all over the world. Paradiso had a rough journey on its road to glory, however, with the then-32 year-old writer/director being forced to cut nearly 30 minutes from its original running time and facing critical excoriation and box office indifference upon its original release in Italy. It’s a fitting metaphor for a film that has become a classic tale about fate, perseverance, and destiny.

Set in Sicily beginning in the years just after Ww II to the late 1950s, and framed by modern-day flashbacks of a renowned film director (French actor/director Jacques Perrin) returning to his Sicilian town for the first time in 30 years, Tornatore’s hero (and alter-ego) is pint-sized Toto, who finds himself obsessed with the movies, »

Why Don’t You Play in Hell?: Where’s Dante When You Need Him?

31 October 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

While viewing Sion Sono's Why Don’t You Play in Hell?, at times I couldn’t tell if the Japanese director was a deliciously inept fan of Tarantino and Jerry Lewis or a bizarro pro gleefully upending a genre or two or three. Not until I checked out his credits on IMDb (over 31 features), and sat down with two of his earlier features, could I assume here’s a gent at top of his game, whatever that game might be.

Sono's The Land of Hope (2012), for instance, is a poignant, well-acted, straightforward drama detailing a nuclear plant’s rupture after an earthquake and its devastating aftereffects on the lives of a small town’s residents.

The “unforgettable” Strange Circus (2005), a Grand Guignol of an entertainment, chronicles a school principal’s incestuous relationship with his twelve-year-old daughter, whom he sometimes encases in a cello case with peepholes, so she can watch »

Harvey Weinstein: Netflix Is Winning Because It Has Vision

25 October 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Harvey Weinstein came out swinging in defense of Netflix at the Produced By: New York conference on Saturday.

The company’s recent forays into the film business cast a shadow over the gathering of producers, but Weinstein welcomed the company’s encroachment.

Of course, he has a vested interest in the streaming service’s success. Weinstein is producing a sequel to “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” that will premiere simultaneously on Netflix and on Imax.

“The reason why [Netflix is] winning is they have a vision,” Weinstein said. “Most executives love money, they don’t love movies … they love movies,” he added.

Theater chains were in an uproar when the deal leaked, and major exhibitors such as Regal, AMC and Cinemark are boycotting the release. They claim that offering the film online at the same time it hits the bigscreen cannibalizes their business.

Weinstein said he was surprised by the outcry because “honestly, »

20 Problems Only Cinema Workers Will Understand

17 October 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cinema can be one of the most dynamic and exciting industries to work in, but the glitz and glamour of Hollywood doesn’t always spill out into the lobby and let’s face it, the curtains have been brought down on the golden age for some time. Gone are the days of 35mm film as old technology makes way for new, thus making the spectacular image of a film burning on screen damn-near extinct.

Nowadays, we face new battles. With piracy and On-Demand to contend with, the customer can be real high maintenance – almost as though they don’t know that we’re manning our stations until 3am.

We may be smiling, but we’re serious when we say that the prices are out of our control. They must, of course, think that we own this particular (insert big chain here) multiplex. We don’t – but boy, do we wish we did. »

13 October 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The four-day gross is $10,640, which is in addition to the $21,000 generated by screenings at the Melbourne International Film Festival, CineféstOZ and the Dungog fest.

Executive producer Jonathan Page said, .It.s a good start and points to a new model of releasing smaller films, focussing on a few targeted sites and keeping costs low. I think The Infinite Man is building a cult following and will be watched on other platforms, so if we can make a bit of noise and a bit of money at the cinema then we are on track..

Wait Till They Get a Load of Me: 1989 – The Year That Changed Hollywood

11 August 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“Twenty five years. Makes a girl think.” So said Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot, and she was rarely wrong about anything, except maybe her taste in husbands. Cinematically, an awful lot can happen in 25 years and Hollywood as we know it today, emerged from seismic developments that took place a quarter of a century ago. 1989 was a game-changer; an absolutely pivotal year in the evolution of 21st century Hollywood. Chances are, whatever you watch at the multiplex this weekend will be genetically traceable to that dark, iPad-less, internetless, Jedwardless time. For those of us who are not going gentle into the dark night of their forties, the specific date of this Big Bang was August 11th 1989. That was the day that Batman finally opened in the UK.

I had never seen a line of people actually queuing around the block, except in vintage documentaries about Star Wars, but »

Durban Festival: ‘Boy’ Helmer’s Path to Screen Full of Curves

17 July 2014 9:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lagos-born helmer Chika Anadu took an unconventional path toward filmmaking, which led to her first feature, “B for Boy,” which has its South African premiere in Durban on July 19. “I never considered it as a profession,” she says. “No one around me was doing it as a child.”

Instead, Anadu moved to England to pursue some high-powered degrees: first, with a B.A. in law and criminology, then with a master’s degree in human and sustainable development in Africa.

It wasn’t until she moved back to Lagos that she found herself at the French cultural center, watching the sorts of foreign films she fell for in England. On the day she watched “Cinema Paradiso,” she was hooked. “That’s when I realized I wanted to be a filmmaker,” she says.

Anadu proved to be a fast study. Having worked her way through close to a decade of higher learning, »

Chef! review

26 June 2014 10:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jon Favreau directs and stars in a more personal, palate cleansing film with Chef. Here's our review.

To paraphrase The Simpsons' Ralph Wiggum, “the food truck symbolises obviousness” in Chef. Jon Favreau's first film since 2011's Cowboys & Aliens is a back-to-basics personal comedy film that probably cost about as much as the catering budget of that film or either of his Iron Man efforts.

What a coincidence then, that it also stars Favreau as the lead character. Chef Carl Casper was once the next big thing in cuisine, but has since settled into a creative rut at a restaurant owned by Riva (Dustin Hoffman). He's been serving his boss' menu for five years, but finally loses his tether when he gets a very public critical drubbing from acerbic food writer Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt).

Filmistaan Review: Divided by history, united by cinema

8 June 2014 8:31 PM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

In a region wracked by hostility, communal tension and the historical baggage of partition, Cinema can be the balm that soothes and unites the divided people of India and Pakistan. That is the message of Filmistaan, a low budget gem that celebrates the power of movies with humour, grace and even a little pathos. It is also a welcome addition to Bollywood’s increasing staple of mainstream yet meaningful cinema.

Though ostensibly an ode to popular Bollywood melodramas such as Maine Pyar Kiya and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the film is closer in spirit to world cinema classics like Cinema Paradiso, Life is Beautiful and No Man’s Land in its examination of the futility of all conflict and assertion of a common humanity that binds us all. And nowhere is this brotherhood of man more evident than through the shared love of movies. People forget their caste, colour or »

“Cinema Paradiso”: The Top 25 (Best Foreign Language Feature)

2 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go again folks with another Top 25 today. This time around I’ll be taking a break from the technical categories (partially because there’s only one more of those left to hit), this time going with a mini-major, as it were. What would that be, you ask? Well, this would be the rather eclectic Best Foreign Language Feature field. The category is one that usually has a more interesting list of nominees than the eventual winner that’s chosen, but there’s still lots more to it than that and plenty to like. The winners over the years have been very unique, with certain choices being almost downright inspired on the part of Oscar voters. I have a few specific titles I’ll be citing below in detail, but I know how the game works here. You all mostly just want to see the lists I do anyway, »

Solid Performances Make "The Best Offer" Just Good Enough

12 May 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

This one goes to the best offer.

Giuseppe Tornatore, known to most for Cinema Paradiso (1988), wrote and directed The Best Offer (2013), a darkish thriller about an auctioneer, Virgil Oldman (Geoffrey Rush), who slowly falls in love with an enigmatic heiress (Sylvia Hoeks) who wishes to sell her vast collection, but is terrified to leave her family estate or even be seen by other people.  As he takes an inventory of her home, Oldman finds an array of gears and machinery that, with the help of a charming mechanical wizard, Robert (Jim Sturgess), slowly comes together into a valuable, historical piece.  That is Oldman's business.  That and picking out the best works from his auctions through his accomplice Billy (Donald Sutherland), a failed painter.  Oldman might have gone through the lady's collection as usual, acquiring only the best for himself and auctioning the rest.  But, of course, he falls in love with her. »

Tribeca Film Review: ’5 to 7′

23 April 2014 9:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aspiring novelist Brian Bloom (Anton Yelchin) receives nothing but rejection letters from publishers, but when it comes to romance, he has considerably better luck, earning coy encouragement from Arielle (Berenice Marlohe), a beautiful French woman he spies smoking on a New York sidewalk. There’s just one catch: She’s married, and the couple can only meet between the hours of 5 and 7, which isn’t nearly enough to satisfy this smitten scribbler. Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin’s refreshingly articulate “5 to 7” delivers romance of the sort thought lost since the days of Audrey Hepburn, for those who appreciate such finery. And who doesn’t?

Truth be told, the times are startlingly harsh for stories designed to make audiences actually feel something, and “5 to 7” risks ridicule from those who can’t abide Levin’s earnest, heart-on-his-sleeve approach. Like his naive 24-year-old protagonist, Levin would rather crash and »
