AFM: Forest Whitaker-Eric Bana Drama ‘The Forgiven’ Bought by Saban

31 October 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Saban Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Roland Joffé’s South African drama “The Forgiven,” starring Forest Whitaker and Eric Bana.

Joffe is directing from a script he co-wrote with Michael Ashton based on Ashton’s play “The Archbishop and The Antichrist.” Whitaker portrays Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s work as in post-apartheid South Africa and his struggle with brutal murderer Piet Blomfeld (Bana).

The film is currently in production. Wme Global handled North American rights, with 13 Films handling international sales at the upcoming American Film Market.

Joffe, whose credits include “The Killing Fields” and “The Scarlet Letter,” is also producing with Link Entertainment’s Craig Baumgarten (“Hook,” “Shattered Glass”)  and Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat of Light & Dark Films, with financing being provided by The Fyzz Facility.

Read the Best #TrumpBookReport Tweets Mocking Trump’s Debate Answers

20 October 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you’ve ever wondered how Donald Trump would summarize literary works from “Harry Potter” to “The Scarlet Letter,” you’re in luck — the #TrumpBookReport hashtag is a dream for librarians and political junkies alike. #TrumpBookReport imagines Trump’s takes on female characters from Clarice Starling to Katniss Everdeen to Lolita, as well as his thoughts on killing mockingbirds, and conflicts between muggles and wizards. Excessive use of the phrase “believe me” abounds. Believe me. Here are some of the best so far: Michael Crichton’s “Jurassic Park”: Jurrasic Park. Yuge disaster. Dinosaurs everywhere. So many deaths. So many. »

"Take This Waltz" Then Move On?: Breakups in the Age of Selfish

16 August 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Illustration by Leah BravoFive years ago, a film came and went with little fanfare, except a spattering of positive reviews, making around $4 million worldwide on a budget of about $10 million: Take This Waltz. More people know it as a Leonard Cohen song, from which its title comes. More people know Leonard Cohen than the director Sarah Polley, but as of this cultural moment, more people might know the star, Michelle Williams, than Leonard Cohen, due to her other movies and a popular TV show. These jejune concerns amplify less than we know and more than we'll admit. Name recognition: these go into the common denominators decision people look for when they decide to fund a film, a book, a play. How will it sell? How will it fit? What can it capitalize on? How can we make something that will not make people think too much or depress them? We »

Just for Sunday fun, Tweets that amused this week. Plus beautiful actresses (duh). But if you'll excuse me let's start with this weirdly flattering twosome. 

@nathanielr this morning I was talking American Lit and said, "I bet he has to read Nathaniel Rogers." I meant Hawthorne. lol

Haha.  The Golden Statue > The Scarlet Letter.

Right?

Safe to assume my first draft was filled with corny awards show jokes abt category fraud. #Empire (cc: @nathanielr) pic.twitter.com/t6URKeD59H

Huzzah Jamie! This long time Tfe fan is now on the writing staff of Empire. We live for corny awards show jokes about category fraud so I hope at least one survived (I am a few episodes behind on Empire but will catch up this week).

More after the jump including Goldie Hawn, Blake Lively, The Lobster, and X-Men Acopalypse advertisements. »

25 great music scores composed for not very good movies

Some brilliant scores accompany movies that don't always deserve them. Here are 25 examples...

Can a film soundtrack rescue a movie that is otherwise a lost cause? One thing’s for sure: throughout the history of cinema, music has often been the redeeming feature of many an underwhelming movie. Here are 25 amazing film scores composed for films that, frankly, didn’t deserve them.

25) Meet Joe Black (Thomas Newman, 1998)

This somnambulistic three hour romantic drama should really feature an extra screen credit for star Brad Pitt’s fetishised blonde locks. Rising way above the torpid melodrama of the plot is one of Thomas Newman’s most hauntingly melodic and attractive scores, one that leaves his characteristic quirkiness at the door to paint a portrait of death that is both melancholy and hopeful. The spectacular 10-minute finale That Next Place remains one of Newman’s towering musical achievements.

Anastasia

29 March 2016 12:01 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

That scarlet woman Ingrid is back from exile, and hypocritical Hollywood is not complaining -- Anatole Litvak and Arthur Laurents make an intriguing romantic-psychological mystery of a bogus Romanoff Duchess who surfaces in 1928 Paris to claim the crown fortune. Good roles for Yul Brynner and Helen Hayes as well. It's a strange intersection of scandal, history and swindlers that may have found the real item... and maybe not. Anastasia Blu-ray Twilight Time Limited Edition 1956 / Color / 2:35 widescreen / 105 min. / Ship Date March 15, 2016 / available through Twilight Time Movies / 29.95 Starring Ingrid Bergman, Yul Brynner, Helen Hayes, Akim Tamiroff, Martita Hunt, Felix Aylmer, Sacha Pitoeff, Ivan Desny, Natalie Schafer, Karel Stepanek Cinematography Jack Hildyard Art Direction Andrej Andrejew, Bill Andrews Film Editor Bert Bates Original Music Alfred Newman Written by Arthur Laurents from a play by Marcelle Maurette Produced by Buddy Adler Directed by Anatole Litvak

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 1990s

The sensational, overlooked film scores from the years 1990 to 1999 that really are well worth digging out...

The movies went through tumultuous and exciting changes in the nineties. Quentin Tarantino exploded onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs, Generation X gave rise to slacker marvels like Clerks, and blockbusters like The Matrix put the awe back into special effects.

However, the 90s was also a sensational decade for film music, gifting us classics including the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic, Total Recall, Braveheart and countless others. But the sheer quality of these soundtrack treasures shouldn’t overshadow those undervalued hidden gems that demonstrate the extraordinary range and versatility of our finest film composers, ones that may have passed you by. So here’s our selection of those incredible works: ranging from the earworming to the unsettling, the melodic to the chaotic, these are the scores that simply demand your attention. »
