‘Elle’ Director Paul Verhoeven’s 10 Tips For a Successful Career After Hollywood

18 November 2016 8:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

These are challenging times for any filmmaker who doesn’t want to be told what to do. Chasing a slice of the Hollywood studio pie almost always brings compromise, and many foreign-born directors return to their home countries and assemble independent film and television projects.

That was the path of Dutch-born Paul Verhoeven, whose career began in his own language with “Soldier of Orange” and the Oscar-nominated “Turkish Delight.”  From there he forged an A-list career that included “Basic Instinct” (which played competition in Cannes) “RoboCop,” “Total Recall,” “Starship Troopers,” and, yes, “Showgirls.” His last Hollywood movie was “Hollow Man” with Kevin Bacon in 2000.

When Verhoeven could no longer find material that suited him, he went back to Holland. His 2006 Dutch World War II drama “Black Book” (Sony Pictures Classics) starred Carice Van Houten, before she joined “Game of Thrones,” and was shortlisted for the foreign Oscar.

Warren Beatty on His Long-Awaited Return to Hollywood With ‘Rules Don’t Apply’

8 November 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Hello. It’s Hollywood Actor Warren Beatty.”

And so it is. The voice on the other end of the phone would be hard to duplicate. As would the rhetorical joyride that the actor/writer/director is about to take me on — as winding as the road to his Mulholland Drive home.

It begins with a riff on the Democratic National Convention (“authentic,” if a bit “too stage-managed”), followed by a quick non sequitur: news of a man who will attempt to jump out of an airplane without a parachute. Then he’s making a quick calculation of how much he stands to collect if someone (like me) watches “Bonnie and Clyde,” on pay-per-view (“$1.39. Let’s call it $1.40.”) All of which seems like mere throat clearing once Beatty launches into an accounting of the multiple preoccupations of the man he plays in his upcoming movie, Howard Hughes.

“Flying, filming, fornicating. All those F’s! »

Movie Review – Krampus Unleashed (2016)

7 November 2016 12:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Krampus Unleashed, 2016.

Directed by Robert Conway.

Starring Amelia Brantley, Bryson Holl, Caroline Lassetter and Travis Amery.

Synopsis:

In pursuit of a lost treasure, a group of fortune hunters mistakenly unearth an ancient demonic summoning stone that holds a terrible curse and awakens a timeless evil, the Krampus. After centuries of slumber, Krampus, the Christmas Devil, has awoken.

The relative success of Michael Doherty’s 2015 film Krampus brought the legend of this Christmas demon into the wider consciousness. It also inspired other filmmakers to cash in, exploring their own dark tales of the beast. One such film, released the same year and directed by Robert Conway, was the relatively disappointing Krampus: The Reckoning. This festive season Conway is back with his latest entry to yuletide monster lore, Krampus Unleashed; which is already available on demand now and on DVD from the 13th December.

J.K. Rowling fleshed out the American corner of her wizarding world in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, which will in turn be expanded into a quintet of films by Warner Bros.

Mipcom: Telemundo Nabs a Trio of Globo’s Telenovelas, Led by ‘Rules of the Game’

19 October 2016 5:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spanish-speaking network Telemundo continues to bet on on Brazilian telenovelas, licensing U.S. TV rights to a trio of recent hit productions by media giant Globo, including Emmy 2016-nominated “Rules of the Game.”

One of Globo’s highlights at the current Mipcom edition, “Rules of the Game,” written by Joao Emanuel Carneiro, author of the worldwide phenomenon “Brazil Avenue,” revolves around the thin line between good and evil, focusing on a former politician of dubious character who, despite being regarded as a people’s hero, forms part of a powerful criminal faction.

Aired in March, the telenovela’s last episode notched up more than 42 million viewers in Brazil, and has been already acquired in territories such as Israel, Ecuador, Chile, Uruguay and Argentina.

Toplining Alexandre Nero (“Empire”) “Rules of the Game” has been nominated for the 2016 International Emmy in both best telenovela and best actor categories.

Telemundo has also licensed the rights of “Ambitious Women” a story »

‘Mr. Robot,’ ‘UnReal’ and the Perils of Big Swings in Second Seasons

24 August 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It may not be entirely fair that “UnReal” and “Mr. Robot” are yoked together, at least in the minds of some TV critics and drama aficionados, but more than the proximity of their mid-2015 debuts unites them.

Both dramas engendered a lot of buzz by doing smart and provocative things with very tricky premises. Neither show was perfect — they had some first-season wobbles — but they were the kind of energetic rebels that weren’t afraid to play around with formulas and break the rules with frequently fruitful results.

And then they both lost the plot in their second seasons. That’s not a metaphor.

It’s hard not to wonder if the glut of television that led to the creation of these shows eventually brought about the self-inflicted wounds that marked their second years. The show’s creators (Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon for “UnReal” and Sam Esmail for “Mr. Robot”) got their shots in part »

‘The Red Turtle’ Pulls Studio Ghibli Out of Its Shell

12 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The dual geniuses behind Studio Ghibli, Japan’s most revered animation company, aren’t getting any younger. At age 75, “Spirited Away” director Hayao Miyazaki has all but retired, now focusing exclusively on short films, while “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya” was 80-year-old Isao Takahata’s final feature.

That puts the studio in urgent need of younger talent to carry on their legacy — as tested with Hiromasa Yonebayashi (“When Marnie Was There”) and Goro Miyazaki (“From Up on Poppy Hill”). But it also inspired a one-of-a-kind project called “The Red Turtle,” which premieres this week in Cannes.

As Studio Ghibli’s first external co-production, “The Red Turtle” was made in France and directed by Dutch-born, London-based animator Michael Dudok de Wit, whose wordless Oscar-winning short “Father and Daughter” had become a favorite at Ghibli.

In pursuit of ways the company might innovate, producer Toshio Suzuki tasked French distributor Vincent Maraval »

MipTV: Globo Launches Reality Fiction Miniseries

7 April 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brought onto the market at MipTV, Globo TV’s reality-fiction hybrid miniseries “Alemao – Both Sides of the Operation,” which lead the Brazilian media behemoth’s slate, is a sign of just how diverse the Brazilian TV giant’s slate is becoming, taking in also “Relaciones Peligrosas,” which was shot entirely in 4K, six telenovelas and four new films produced by its film division, Globo Filmes.

“Alemao” is based on the harrowing 2010 events in then drug gang-infested Complexo do Alemao shantytown (favela) in Rio de Janeiro.

Globo’s raw, Emmy-winning news footage is combined with the dramatization of events that unfolded when the identities of five undercover police agents were unmasked by a drug lord just before a massive raid by state security forces.

Followed by news teams on the ground and in helicopters, nearly 3,000 police officers swarmed over the complex of about a dozen slums to flush out drug traffickers »

Latin American TV Titans Team Up for Drama Series Production

4 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Faced with a feeding frenzy for higher-end dramas — punctuated by the Netflix-led OTTs mounting forays into original productions — Latin America’s most prominent players are forging alliances in a bid to cement their hold on a fracturing television market. Such collaborations allow both parties to work with higher budgets, and tap the cachet, expertise and multiplatform distribution channels of their partners.

Among the key players, Mexican TV giant Televisa made an agreement with Sony Pictures Television (Spt) to co-produce “Blue Demon,” a 65-episode TV drama series based on the true-life story of iconic Mexican wrestler Alejandro Munoz Moreno. Now in production, “Blue Demon” will air in Latin America on multiple Televisa platforms, with Spt and Televisa jointly distributing the series across the world.

Announcing the project at Natpe, Angelica Guerra, Spt senior VP and managing director of production for Latin America and U.S. Hispanic, said: “There is a growing »

12 Trashiest Films Ever Made

8 March 2016 7:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar Pictures

In this ultra-sensitive era, where people are routinely shamed and humiliated for using the wrong terminology, it’s heartening to discover the kinds of films whose makers didn’t care what anyone thought. No pandering to political correctness here; these films want to entertain you with merry tales of sadistic biker gangs, Nazi zombies and bisexual lap dancers.

The natural home for such pictures was New York’s 42nd Street which during the “golden age” of exploitation cinema consisted of porno stores and movie theatres showing double or triple bills promising sex and violence. Plywood archways fitted around the entrances to the theatre lobbies were adorned with film stills to which fake blood would be added, along with words like Shock, Lurid or Sex.  It was, in short, a long way from when John Barrymore had performed Hamlet there during the 1920s.

Once inside, the coming attractions promised yet more sex and violence. »
