14 April 2014 2:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Wong Kar-wai has swept the Hong Kong Film Awards with The Grandmaster.

This was Wong's third Best Director win, following nods for his work on Days of Being Wild (1990) and Chungking Express (1994).

"I remember it was 1994 when I was last here," he said as he accepted his prize (via The Hollywood Reporter).

"It was a short walk from the podium to the stage, but it took me 20 years to come back to this spot."

The Grandmaster also won Best Screenplay, Best Art Direction, Best Costume and Make-up Design, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Design, Best Original Film Score and Best Action Choreography.

Kickstarting A Short Sci-Fi Film Starring Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei

2 April 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Having been called “The Most Powerful Artist in the World” and “China’s Most Dangerous Man,” Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei has made much of an impact in the world of art, and some of his most notable pieces have been in the art of cinema. Now he teams up with writer/director Jason Wishnow (the filmmaker behind "Ted Talks") and Christopher Doyle (Dp of "In the Mood for Love," "Chungking Express," "Hero") to star in the upcoming low-fi sci-fi film entitled "The Sand Storm." Having already wrapped principal photography, the film is currently trying to raise $33,000 on Kickstarter for the post-production phase. Though the film score has been composed, "The Sand Storm," which depicts a dim and gritty not-too-distant dystopian future in which there is no water, still needs money for sound design, color correction and of course visual effects. The film, which is only 10 minutes long, was made »

The Curious Case of The Grandmaster

18 January 2014 6:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Dancin' Dan here with a fun bit of Oscar trivia after nominations. When Wong Kar-Wai's gorgeous The Grandmaster didn't make it into the Best Foreign Language Film category. I wasn't surprised. Wong hasn't had much luck with the category (his masterpiece In The Mood for Love was also submitted but Oscar passed on it) and the new film, based on the life and work of Ip Man, has been divisive. I feared that this would spell doom for Philippe Le Sourd's stunning cinematography, thought Nathaniel had been predicting its nomination there for some time, but was heartened by its somewhat surprise inclusion in the Asc's seven-wide field. To my delight, upon looking at the full list of nominations, not only was Le Sourd nominated, but so was William Chang for the film's sumptuous costumes!

Which sets the mind racing... How many films that missed out on a Best »

Lilting: Sundance Review

17 January 2014 12:35 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Park City – Intriguing relationship dynamics and an intensely moving performance from Ben Whishaw as a bereaved gay man drive Lilting, an intimate drama about two strangers unable to communicate but drawn together by the common language of grief. Delicate and unhurried almost to a fault, though also hauntingly sexy and even humorous at times, this debut from Cambodian-born, London-based writer-director Hong Khaou wears its stylistic debt to In the Mood for Love on its elegant sleeve. But the gentle study of loss builds quiet emotional power, shifting between uncomfortable reality and a sorrowful memory-plane that

'Grandmaster' Wong Kar-Wai Mourns 35 Mm, Honors Fading Martial Arts (Exclusive Video)

7 January 2014 9:59 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Hong Kong filmmaker Wong kar-wai ("In the Mood for Love"), 57, is an engaging and articulate man. He's happy that after two years of research travel around Asia meeting the grandmasters of martial arts, his film "The Grandmaster" is not only his second film to be submitted by Hong Kong for the best foreign Oscar, but made the shortlist of nine. The final five will be picked by committee this weekend and announced on January 16. (Metacritic reviews here.) Of the foreign shortlist, Wong's "The Grandmaster" is by far the most-seen in the U.S. ($6.6 million) and around the world, and marks his most successful box office hit to date ($58 million worldwide).  Wong does not set out to please audiences. He's a dazzling visual artist through and through. But in this case he did seek to share his passion for this "fading tradition," especially with young people, without resorting to the usual »

Hong Kong Movie Mogul Run Run Shaw Dead at 107

7 January 2014 7:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kelvin K. Chan, Associated Press

Hong Kong (AP) - Run Run Shaw built a Hong Kong movie and TV empire that nurtured rising talents like actor Chow Yun-fat and director John Woo, inspired Hollywood filmmakers such as Quentin Tarantino and produced the 1982 sci-fi classic "Blade Runner."

Shaw's prolific studio helped bring kung fu films to the world but he also passed on the chance to sign one of the biggest names in that genre: the young Bruce Lee.

The missed opportunity was a rare misstep for Shaw, who died Tuesday, according to a statement from Television Broadcasts Limited (Tvb), which he helped found in 1967. No cause of death was given.

His studio gave his age as 107, but his age according to the Western counting method may have been 106 because Chinese traditionally consider a child to be 1 at birth. Tvb said he was born in 1907, but would not provide his birth date. »

Rest in Peace: Run Run Shaw

6 January 2014 8:02 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The man behind the incredibly inspirational studio known as The Shaw Brothers, Run Run Shaw, has passed on at the glorious age of 107 years old. While he never worked directly within the horror genre, we'd be remiss if we didn't take a moment to honor this true legend of cinema.

From the Official Release

Pioneering Hong Kong movie producer Run Run Shaw, whose studio popularized the kung fu genre that influenced Quentin Tarantino and other Hollywood directors, has died at the age of 106.

No cause of death was given in a statement from Television Broadcasts Limited (Tvb), which Shaw helped found in 1967.

His Shaw Brothers Studios, once among the world's largest, helped launch the careers of powerhouses including director John Woo and churned out nearly 1,000 movies. His television empire helped actors including Chow Yun-fat rise to fame. He also produced a handful of U.S. films, including the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner. »

Legendary Hong Kong Movie Producer Run Run Shaw Dies At Age 107

6 January 2014 7:53 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Pioneering Hong Kong movie producer Run Run Shaw, whose studio popularized the kung fu genre that influenced Quentin Tarantino and other Hollywood directors, died on Tuesday.

He was 107.

His Shaw Brothers Studios, once among the world’s largest, helped launch the careers of powerhouses including director John Woo and his television empire helped actors including Chow Yun-fat rise to fame.

Other stars rose to fame through Shaw’s television station Tvb, which remains a dominant force in Hong Kong. Wong Kar-wai, the director behind critically acclaimed art-house movies like “Chungking Express” and “In the Mood for Love,” got his start through a Tvb training course and worked at the station briefly as a production assistant.

Ironically, one actor who slipped through Shaw’s grasp, Bruce Lee, went on to become the world’s biggest kung fu star.

On December 3, 2013, BAFTA presented a Special Award to Sir Run Run Shaw Cbe, »
