Cannes Update: Claire Denis’ “Let the Sunshine In” Acquired by Sundance Selects

19 May 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“Let the Sunshine In”: Cannes Film Festival

Sundance Selects has snagged all North American rights to Claire Denis’ “Let the Sunshine In,” Variety reports. The dramedy just made its world premiere at Cannes, where it received positive reviews, with many singling out the film’s star, Juliette Binoche. The Oscar winner plays a middle-aged artist and mother looking for romance.

Formerly known as “Dark Glasses,” the French-language film is inspired by “A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments,” a 1978 book by influential French literary theorist Roland Barthe. Denis co-wrote the script with Christine Angot. Its French title is “Un Beau Soleil Interieur.”

“We absolutely loved Claire’s touching and funny take on finding love and are thrilled to be back in business with her, Juliette Binoche, and our friends at Film Distribution,” said Jonathan Sehring and Lisa Schwartz, co-presidents of IFC Films/Sundance Selects in a statement.

Binoche won an Academy Award in 1997 for “The English Patient” and earned a second nomination in 2001 for “Chocolat.” She was last seen in the Scarlet Johansson-led sci-fi film “Ghost in the Shell.”

Denis, whose previous films include “Beau Travail,” “35 Shots of Rum,” and “Bastards,” is in pre-production on “High Life,” a futuristic space adventure co-written by Zadie Smith. “[I want to] put the camera in the direction of the people I want to see and not the people I watch on TV,” Denis has said. She explained that she feels “obliged to go to people that should be seen, that should be in the light.”

Cannes Update: Claire Denis’ “Let the Sunshine In” Acquired by Sundance Selects was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Ghost in the Shell anime reboot announced

10 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Publisher Kodansha and Japanese animation company Production I.Gare collaborating to create a new Ghost in the Shell anime project. The film will serve as a reboot and is set to be co-directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed).

This news follows on from the release of the live-action movie starring Scarlett Johansson, which is going to cost Paramount in the region of $60 million following its underperformance at the box office, something the studio has put down to the controversy surrounding the whitewashing of several of its characters.

Let us know in the comments below what you think of a new animated Ghost in the Shell project entering development, and what you thought of the recent Hollywood adaptation….

Japanese audiences praise Ghost in the Shell remake and are happy with Scarlett Johansson’s casting

10 April 2017 4:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rupert Sanders’ controversial (in some circles) adaptation of Ghost in the Shell has received its fair share of good reviews in the West [read our review here], despite the ‘white-washing’ claims hanging over it. However, it hasn’t connected with audiences domestically. Its opening weekend of $19 million was very disappointing considering its $110 million budget, and the audience dropped 60% in week two. Ghost in the Shell is doing better internationally ($92 million at the time of writing), and the film has now opened in its original home country of Japan where its being received very favourably.

Yahoo! Movies Japan rated the movie 3.5, praising the film’s visuals but not so much its story. The Hollywood Reporter spoke to some Japanese audience members who echoed that statement.

Early Ghost in the Shell concept art featuring Margot Robbie as The Major

7 April 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After years in development, Hollywood’s live-action Ghost in the Shell finally hit cinemas this past month, although it failed to live up to expectations financially and is looking at a loss of around $60 million – put down to the whitewashing controversy surrounding Scarlett Johansson’s casting as The Major.

Before Johansson came on board the project, another actress was being lined up for the lead in Margot Robbie, and we know have a look at some early concept art from Jeff Simpson and Nivanh Chanthara featuring the Suicide Squad star as the character…

“I spent a tiny amount of time doing pre-production work for the new Ghost in the Shell,” said Simpson. “These were done back in 2013? 2014? When Margot Robbie was gonna be the lead. Only spent a few days on it, but it was fun.”

“I’ve worked on the very first batch of environment concept art for the Ghost in the Shell movie, »

WB Announces Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition On Blu-Ray

29 March 2017 10:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.

Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.

Moving on to the official synopsis, »
