Benjamin Bratt has a role in Doctor Strange

26 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at McU Exchange, it is now known that actor Benjamin Bratt will have a role in this year’s Doctor Strange.

Many believed that the cast list for the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe installment had already been released in its entirety, but Bratt’s involvement, which was revealed when his name was spotted at the bottom of the newest Doctor Strange Comic-Con poster, proves otherwise. Who knows, if this bit of casting news was kept secret until now, maybe other actors will pop up on screen and surprise audience members when the movie hit theaters. Currently, the actor’s character in the film is unknown.

Bratt has been working in Hollywood for well over two decades and has starred in projects including Demolition Man, Miss Congeniality, Traffic and Despicable Me 2. This year alone, »

Water Rackets: “Erin Brockovich”

19 July 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Steven Soderbergh's Erin Brokovich (2000) is playing July 17 - August 16, 2016 on Mubi in the United Kingdom. “Erin Brockovich is perhaps the most forceful articulation of Soderbergh’s proclivity toward emphasizing character over other filmic concerns. Without sacrificing their causal role within the narrative, who characters are is often of greater interest than what they do—indeed, what they will do and accomplish is often a foregone conclusion… while Erin Brockovich may, thematically, be a film about responsibility, formally, Erin Brockovich is a movie about Erin Brockovich—and decidedly so.”— Andrew Patrick Nelson, in The Philosophy of Steven Soderbergh“I’m smart, I’m hardworking and I’m not leaving here without a job.”— Erin, Erin BrockovichErin Brockovich must win people over. As a single mother of three who wears short skirts and low-cut tops, she’s at the more preyed-upon end of a predatory spectrum—one whose social logic is built on first impressions. »

Review: The Infiltrator

14 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here with a review of The Infiltrator which opened yesterday nationwide.

Fact: Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic is one of the most influential films of the 21st century. That’s not a qualitative assessment but an increasingly common thought that’s rankled in my brain. Can you believe Soderbergh actually struggled to get his film financed because Hollywood execs didn’t think audiences would want to watch an entire film about the drug trade?

Fast-forward to summer 2016 when USA is premiering Queen of the South, Netflix will bring us season 2 of Narcos, two competing El Chapo TV series are in development, and Bryan Cranston’s The Infiltrator joins an ever-growing list of films about the war on drugs that range from the sublime (Sicario) to the pedestrian (Blow) with everything in between (Savages, anyone?).

In Brad Furman’s The Infiltrator, the Breaking Bad actor plays U.S. Customs Service special agent Robert Mazur who, »

5 July 2016 12:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cliff Martinez is set to score James Mangold‘s The Wolverine 3. The film is now in-production and is said to be Hugh Jackman‘s last turn as perhaps his most iconic character.

Martinez last scored The Neon Demon, Nicholas Winding Refn’s new film which opens in UK cinemas this weekend. His previous work includes the scores for sex, lies and videotape, Drive, Only God Forgives, Contagion, Solaris and Traffic, and also Arbitrage, The Lincoln Lawyer and Spring Breakers.

The Wolverine 3, or whatever the filmmakers decide to call it, will be his first comic-book/ superhero movie.

Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, and Eriq La Salle are also set to star in the sequel, which will be released in 2017.

Here’s a sample of Martinez’s work from the outstanding Drive– it’s quite something.

Composer Cliff Martinez to score James Mangold's untitled Wolverine sequel

1 July 2016 7:43 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

My first exposure to Cliff Martinez's film work came with Joe Carnahan's Narc and I was immediately hooked. His ambience-filled, dark toned sounds provide an eerie and ethereal feel to any images they accompany and can be quite powerful when used to his full strengths, such as films like Traffic, Drive, Spring Breakers, The Knick, and much more.

Drive & Contagion Composer Cliff Martinez Set To Score James Mangold's Wolverine 3

1 July 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After scoring a number of films for acclaimed directors Nicolas Winding Refn & Steven Soderbergh over the years, composer Cliff Martinez is ready to embark on a whole new kind of challenge in the world of comic book movies. Earlier today, Film Music Reporter learned that Martinez has signed on to score James Mangold's upcoming Wolverine sequel, which stars the Academy Award-nominated Hugh Jackman in his final outing as the fan-favorite hero. He'll take over from Marco Beltrami, who scored 2013's The Wolverine. Details on the film's plot are being kept under lock-and-key, but it's been heavily rumored that the film could possibly be a loose adaptation of the Old Man Logan and/or Death of Wolverine storylines. Principal photography is currently underway in New Orleans. Martinez is best known for his work on over ten different Soderbergh projects for film and television, including Sex, Lies, and Videotape, King of the Hill, »

Comedy Studio Super Deluxe Signs Stephen Gaghan As Executive Producer

15 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Today marks the official launch of Super Deluxe, Turner’s multiplatform digital content brand, which debuts with a strong lineup of names familiar to the comedy world, as well as one unexpected name: Stephen Gaghan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “Traffic.”

Read More: Magnolia To Distribute “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie”

Super Deluxe president Wolfgang Hammer, speaking with IndieWire at a launch event last night, offered some clarity into what Gaghan’s role as an executive producer would be at the young studio, which is owned by Turner but operates as an independent unit.

“Steve is an amazing filmmaker,” Hammer said. “I’ve known him for a very long time. He’s a voice. He won an Emmy, he won an Academy Award. There’s no harm in having an Academy Award-winning writer/director to produce stuff for you.”

Hammer clarified that Gaghan would be producing things within the TV studio, but that they wouldn’t necessarily fall into the realm of comedy. “We’re a comedy brand, but we’ll do other things as well.”

The name “Super Deluxe” may in fact sound familiar if you’re a comedy nerd. Turner launched the original site in 2007, just as YouTube was becoming a true craze and Funny or Die was building its own nascent brand. But despite being an early digital platform for creators like Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim and Maria Bamford, the site was shut down in 2008 and its content absorbed into Adult Swim.

As part of the new Super Deluxe, Heidecker, Wareheim and partner Dave Kneebone have signed a development and production agreement. “[They’re] obviously huge talents themselves, but have an amazing trust within the creative community,” Hammer said.

That trust will extend to a strategy built around incubating new talent. The site will also be working with (per the official release) “fresh, new voices such as Dean Fleischer-Camp (‘Catherine’), Jen Tullock (HBO’s ‘A Lot’) and Hannah UttHye Yun Park and Brandon Rogers.” The latter will be working on the new original half-hour “Magic Funhouse,” “an adult show about a kid’s show.”

As Hammer explained, “Our philosophy generally is that a lot of creatives, especially the eccentric ones, are not good at pitching. So we provide a safe environment for them to go make stuff. Whether that’s television or short form — doesn’t matter.”

Turner’s Super Deluxe Developing Edgy TV Comedies With Stephen Gaghan, Other Partners

15 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Super Deluxe, the digital content studio Turner quietly revived last year, has already racked up millions of views for its offbeat, youth-skewing short-form comedy on social networks — with bits skewering Donald Trump ranking among its most popular content.

But Super Deluxe isn’t just aimed at delivering short yucks: The L.A.-based studio is also planning to produce half-hour comedies for TV networks or subscription VOD services.

Super Deluxe has teamed with writer-director Stephen Gaghan (“Syriana,” “Traffic”) as an ongoing executive producer, and signed a development and production agreement with Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim and Dave Kneebone (“Tim and Eric Awesome Show,” “Great Job!,” “Nathan For You”). Other partners include Dean Fleischer-Camp (“Catherine”), Jen Tullock (HBO’s “A Lot”), Hannah Utt and Hae Yun Park.

“The big difference between us and other video publishers on the Internet is we cover, organically, all formats,” said Wolfgang Hammer, founder and president of Super Deluxe. “We are also a TV company.”

Super Deluxe has more than 25 long-form series in development, and Hammer said the studio has already had early conversations with potential distributors. The exec declined to identify the shows except for one: half-hour series “Magic Funhouse,” a show for adult audiences that goes behind the scenes at a fictional kid’s TV show, created and written by YouTube creator Brandon Rogers.

As Variety first reported, Turner resurrected the Super Deluxe comedy brand last fall, bringing on Hammer, formerly co-president of CBS Films (pictured above), to run the operation.

Super Deluxe’s focus is on “eccentric, subversive comedy that’s challenging and substantive at the same time,” Hammer said. “It’s about the tone and a certain kind of style.”

In addition to Hammer, Super Deluxe’s executive team includes Jesse Pearson, former editor-in-chief of Vice magazine, who now serves as creative director for the Super Deluxe Network and branded content; chief marketing officer Arthur Wang, formerly with CBS Interactive; and Ryan Likes, who serves as general manager after previous stints at Televisa and Lionsgate.

Other key staff include Cto Shahruz Shaukat, formerly with BuzzFeed; network heads Dimitri Simakis and Hillary Levine, who also both hail from BuzzFeed; and TV execs Winnie Kemp (formerly with CBS Films), David Sigurani (previously with Televisa) and Mia Di Pasquale.

All told, Super Deluxe now has 55 full-time employees and another 50 freelancers.

Turner has set up Super Deluxe as an independent unit, with Hammer reporting to Kevin Reilly, chief creative officer for Turner Entertainment and president of TBS and TNT. “Our belief in the value proposition of ‘premium plus personalization’ now extends into the emergent ecosystem of mobile-centric consumers and next-generation creators thriving in that space,” Reilly said in a statement.

At Fox, Reilly launched another studio-within-the-studio: Animation Domination High-Def, which produced a range of shorts and series for digital and late-night block on the broadcast network before moving to Fxx. Hammer said the Super Deluxe strategy is very different, because it is not producing content for Turner’s networks (although it’s possible some of the long-form series may find a home there). “Companies that are adjuncts to a large behemoth tend to get either forgotten or lost in the massive corporations,” he said.

Super Deluxe’s social-media channels, since launching in December, now reach more than 35 million viewers per month across Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo, Twitter and Snapchat. The studio’s website, Superdeluxe.com, is not designed to be a video destination.

Its content spans political satire, parodies, animation and scripted series and targeted to viewers 16-34, according to Hammer. So far Super Deluxe’s audience is split 50-50 between male and female. On YouTube, Super Deluxe’s biggest hit is a BuzzFeed-like sketch called “When You Have Big Boobs.”

For now, Super Deluxe is not generating any revenue, though at some point it expects to sell advertising and delve into branded content. “We just want young folks to like us, and think we’re fresh and funny,” Hammer said. “The way you monetize an audience on mobile is through branded content. For us, it’s an important part. But for folks who do only that, it’s a struggle. So we’ve added TV licensing and production to the mix.”

At its downtown L.A. offices near Pershing Square, Super Deluxe has studio space with capabilities for live video production. “We’re doing it in a very ambitious, startup way,” Hammer said. “It’s not a lavish operation, but we do have the financial means to pull the trigger on bigger projects.”

There’s no shortage of original humor on the Internet. To a certain extent, Super Deluxe is competing with outlets including the Onion, CollegeHumor, Funny Or Die, Comedy Central and NBCUniversal’s Seeso. “In the general category, any creator is a competitor,” Hammer acknowledged. But he maintained that Super Deluxe is unique with its combination of short- and long-form content, and said other comedy destinations could be potential customers. “Anybody who will pay us money, we love, and it also means money for our creators,” Hammer said.

The original iteration of Super Deluxe launched as a website in January 2007, and like its successor was geared toward edgy humor aimed at a younger demo. But 18 months later, Turner combined the unit’s operations with Adult Swim, its programming block on Cartoon Network.

Michael Davis: Back In The Day

24 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Back in the days of “I am Curious Black,” a 1970 Lois Lane story about Lois using a machine to become a black woman; she does so to see what it was like to be black.

Back then the good folks at DC did not think twice about a black artist or writer. Now, if a story with a black character comes down the pipe, the net is in an uproar if black creators are not involved.

Me? I say the white boys have at it. A good story, like a good character, is colorblind. Trying or even wanting to ban white people from writing black characters is as horribly short sided, stupid, and as prejudiced as banning Muslims from America.

A white writer telling a story featuring a black character is one thing. Telling a story where they try and define the black experience on some level is quite another. »

Interview: Actor Don Cheadle Discovers Himself ‘Miles Ahead’

6 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Like improvisational jazz, the performance career of Don Cheadle has many moods, directions and shadings. For his latest film, he takes on the titles of co-writer and director, along with the lead role of music legend Miles Davis. This all comes together is the aptly titled “Miles Ahead.”

Cheadle applies a different kind of music biography spin, with a centerpiece story about Davis that operates as a mythical framework for the musician’s life story, told in a loose flashback format. The cinematic structure is jazzy and kinetic, and it moves forward with an energy all of its own, driven by the frenetic soundtrack of the man himself. As a director, Cheadle has crafted something outside the norm, a visual blend that could be at home within the florid sweep of a Miles Davis composition.
