Yeoh Still Doing Her Kimono Walk

19 December 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Michelle Yeoh put so much practice into walking in a form-fitting kimono for her new movie Memoirs Of A Geisha, she still finds herself doing the dainty strut in her spare time. The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star admits that learning to walk in the complex outfit proved to be more challenging than a number of the high-energy action scenes she's shot in the past. She says, "If I didn't do it well, Rob Marshall (the director) would have taken me out and shot me. From the minute I got out of bed, I'd walk around the house in it - it became second nature. Sometimes I'd be walking down the street in jeans and get into that little shuffle. But then I'd be like, 'Okay, time out, girl. You look a little strange.'" She adds, "Martial arts is just practice. But a geisha requires complete control." »

China co-prod pays off for Hollywood studios

15 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

BEIJING -- Columbia Pictures Film Production Asia saw a $330 million return on the $40 million it put into making films in China in the last seven years, managing director Barbara Robinson said Thursday. "Co-productions are very important because of the access to the Chinese market that they can provide," Robinson said on a panel on Sino-foreign film co-production at trade show CineAsia. Of the 13 films the Columbia unit made since 1998, nine were shot in China and five were Chinese co-productions, including the Chinese boxoffice hits Kung Fu Hustle and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hong Kong-based Robinson said. Films co-produced with Chinese companies enjoy faster clearance by the Film Bureau for distribution in China and a greater share of the domestic boxoffice, said panelist La Peikang, president of the China Film Co-Production Corp. »

Ang Lee Wins Golden Lion at Venice

12 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Taiwanese director Ang Lee was honored with the coveted Golden Lion award for his latest movie Brokeback Mountain at the climax of the 62nd Venice Film Festival in Italy on Saturday. The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon movie-maker's adaptation of an E. Annie Proulx's novella, which tells the story of a gay love affair between two cowboys, played by Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger, was chosen by the jury as best film. Accepting the golden lion at the Veneto canal city, Lee enthused, "(My film is) a great American love story. I'm so glad it's prevailed here and was received so warmly here." This year's festival was triumphant for the French, with Paris-born director Philippe Garrel picking up the Silver Lion prize for directing Les Amants Reguliers (The Regular Lovers), which also won in the Outstanding Technical Contribution category. Isabelle Huppert was given a Special Lion for her career, which has spanned four decades. Meanwhile, George Clooney's second outing as a director - Good Night, And Good Luck, was named Best Screenplay and Best Actor for leading man David Strathairn. »

11 March 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

HONG KONG -- Breaking News director Johnnie To is set to produce the first film to roll from cable operator i-Cable Communications' new movie production subsidiary. The $2 million police thriller will be helmed by new director Yau Nai-hoi, who has previously scripted many of To's award-winning movies such as Running Out of Time and PTU. I-Cable Communications, a subsidiary of leading pay TV operator Cable Television, is set to invest $38.5 million in a two-year plan to produce between 10 and 15 movies through the yet-to-be-named production banner. I-Cable, which owns three movie channels, has previously invested in films produced by other production companies such as Universe Films and China Star. This marks the first time that the company will venture into movie production. Edko Films -- owned by House of Flying Daggers and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon producer Bill Kong -- will handle local theatrical distribution as well as overseas sales for the productions. »

Directors Guild Nominations Announced

6 January 2005 | IMDb News

The Oscar race came into even clearer view with this morning's Director Guild nominations, which cited four of the five films that received mention from the Producers Guild yesterday. Veterans Martin Scorsese (The Aviator) and Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby), previous DGA nominees (Eastwood won for 1992's Unforgiven), both snagged nominations as did first time nominees Marc Forster (Finding Neverland) and Alexander Payne (Sideways). All four movies were nominated alongside The Incredibles for the PGA's Best Picture award, and those four directors also have Golden Globe nominations under their belt this year. The fifth DGA nominee, a bit of a surprise choice, was Taylor Hackford, who picked up his first major mention of any kind this awards season for the biopic Ray. Noticeably missing from the list were Golden Globe nominee Mike Nichols (Closer), as well as critical faves Mike Leigh (Vera Drake) and Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The DGA has a fairly excellent track record for picking the Best Director Oscar winner, with 50 of the DGA's 56 past winners picking up the honor, though two of their choices in the past five years -- Rob Marshall (Chicago) and Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) -- failed to win the Academy Award. The winner will be named Saturday, January 29th, four days after the announcement of the Academy Award nominations. --Prepared by IMDb staff
