Watch: Supercut Tribute To The Films Of Alejandro González Iñárritu

27 May 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How does one follow up the award winning “Birdman?” You set out to make a grim revenge western about a fur trapper, of course. While Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “The Revenant” has gone over schedule–by at least three months, according to Tom Hardy–we can spend the time waiting for that movie reexamining the Oscar-winning director’s filmography thanks to a video tribute by Miguel Branco. To date, Iñárritu has the least amount of feature-length films to his name than the rest of the Three Amigos–five to Alfonso Cuaron’s seven and Guillermo del Toro’s soon-to-be nine – but he’s also the only one that has stayed firmly in the arthouse realm when both Cuaron and del Toro have gone Hollywood. Iñárritu made his feature-length debut with "Amores perros" in 2000, a powerful and confident film that tracks three distinct stories in Mexico City all linked to a car crash. »

Im Global-Canana’s Mundial Shakes Up Latin America Film Industry

12 May 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In December 2012, Im Global shook Latin America by unveiling Mundial, an international sales joint venture with Canana, the production house founded by Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz with bases in Mexico City and Los Angeles. At November’s American Film Market, Im Global again made waves, announcing an exclusive output deal for Spanish-language titles from Alex Garcia’s Ag Studios, a film production-financing empire with companies in Mexico, the U.S., Colombia and Brazil.

Latin American expansion will not stop there.

Im Global is backing a new L.A.-based film/TV production and management company serving Latino and international talent across film, TV and music. Founding principals are Carlos Bobadilla as head of lit and Brandon Guzman as head of talent.

It also hopes to announce a strategic deal with a top Brazilian production company in or around Cannes.

Pantelion Films Sets English-language Thriller ‘Tapes’ for July Release

5 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pantelion Films is set to reach its annual goal of six releases in July with English-language demon possession “The Vatican Tapes,” starring Michael Pena.

Since its inception in 2010, the joint venture between Mexican media conglom Televisa and Lionsgate has acquired and invested in titles aimed at the U.S. Hispanic market.

“We think comedy is where opportunity lies, as well as in family and horror genres to some extent,” said Pantelion COO Edward Allen.

To that end, Pantelion has picked up the third of the hit “Huevos” animation franchise pics, “Un Gallo con Muchos Huevos,” for a late summer release, followed by Joe Menendez’s “Ladrones,” the sequel to heist comedy “Ladron que Roba a Ladron.”

Ladrones” was one of two pics shot in the Dominican Republic under a multipicture deal with Lantica Media, formerly Indomina, which taps the island nation’s generous film incentives and makes use of the Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios, »

‘White God’ is a curiously flat depiction of a canine uprising

27 March 2015 7:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

White God

Written by Kornél Mundruczó, Viktória Petrányi and Kata Wéber

Directed by Kornél Mundruczó

Hungary/Germany/Sweden, 2014

Kornél Mundruczó’s White God does for Budapest canines what Rise of the Planet of the Apes did for San Francisco simians. Instead of Caesar the ape, White God has Hagen the dog, who endures various means of suffering at the hands of human abusers before leading an animal uprising of his own. That plot point isn’t exactly a third act spoiler, as White God has an in medias res opening wherein Hagen and hundreds of dogs pelt through abandoned city streets, seemingly chasing a girl on a bicycle; the reveal is also the main image being used to advertise the film, so you might also draw a comparison to the Apes series there (“Statue of Liberty… that was our planet!”). It’s certainly an immediate attention-grabber, but it’s a »

'White God' Director on Unleashing 250 Dogs on Budapest and Why More Films Should Take Risks

23 March 2015 11:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You have never seen a dog movie like "White God," the singular cinematic effort that won Cannes's top prize in the Un Certain Regard section last year. With echoes as disparate as "Lassie," "The Birds," and "Amores Perros," Kornél Mundruczó's genre-bending fable imagines a world in which marginalized stray dogs uprise against their cruel human oppressors.  When 13-year-old Lili is sent to stay with her emotionally distant father in Budapest, she brings along her other half: a soft-hearted but rambunctious rescue dog, Hagen. But the reality that meets them is unwelcoming and indifferent to their bond. "Mutts have to be reported in Hungary,"a neighbor admonishes, and proceeds to call the police. Lili must send Hagen back to the streets. What ensues is an Odyssean journey that exposes Hagen to darkest impulses of humanity.  Incredibly shot without the aid of CGI, Mundruczó and his team unleashed »

Gael Garcia Bernal readies second film as director

10 March 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Mexico City-set dark comedy Chicuarotes revolves around teenagers living on the edge of a tourist lake.

Mexican actor, director and producer Gael Garcia Bernal is hoping to shoot his second feature Chicuarotes early next year about a group of teenagers growing up by Xochimilco Lake in Mexico City.

Speaking to ScreenDaily, Bernal said: “The film will follow a group of kids - around 14, 15 years-old - who live by the lake. They’re economically poor but not miserable or unhappy, basically living in paradise.

“The narrative of the film follows their dreams of moving up economically and socially. They want to stop working and make lots of money. I can’t tell you now how they attempt to do this but it’s a comedy - a very dark comedy.”

Bernal spoke to Screen on the fringes of the Doha Film Institute’s inaugural Qumra meeting, aimed at nurturing projects by filmmakers in Qatar, across the Middle »

Gael Garcia Bernal Set To Direct His Second Feature Film

10 March 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mexican multihyphenate Gael Garcia Bernal will direct a “very dark comedy” titled “Chicuarotes,” set amid the lakes in Mexico City and centered around teens who “want to become economically superior to what they are,” he said during the Doha Film Institute’s Qumra event dedicated to nurturing emerging Arab filmmakers

Bernal said his sophomore feature, which follows his 2007 directorial debut “Deficit,” is being written by Mexican scribe Augusto Mendoza, who co-penned Diego Luna’s feature film debut “Abel” and also Luna’s upcoming “Mr. Pig.”

Bernal and fellow Mexican actor/director/producer Luna are partners in Canana, the Mexico City/L.A. production house Luna founded with Bernal and Pablo Cruz and which has become a powerhouse producer for a new generation of Mexican helmers.

Alejandro G. Inarritu on Oscar Glory and Why He Wouldn’t Have Minded Losing

25 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro G. Inarritu was as unabashedly frank backstage at Sunday night’s Academy Awards as his movie “Birdman,” about a washed-up superhero-movie actor attempting to reinvent himself on Broadway, was unapologetically bold.

When asked about the apprehension in conceiving of such a daring cinematic undertaking, the writer-director declared, “Fear is the condom of life; it doesn’t allow you to enjoy things.” As the crowd exploded in laughter, he added, “I did it without, and this was the result; it was real. It was making love.”

It was that raw, unconventional nature of “Birdman”— the magical realism of star Michael Keaton moving objects with his mind, floating three feet off his dressing-room floor in a lotus position and flying through New York City — that helped Inarritu’s movie nab four Oscars for best director, picture, original screenplay and cinematography.

Birdman | Blu-Ray Review

24 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Taking home four Oscars out of its nine nominations, including Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay and Cinematography, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Birdman was the big winner at this year’s Academy Awards. Premiering last August at the Venice Film Festival (where it left with trio of minor awards), cinematography has long been the awards season lock for the film (winning Lubezki a BAFTA), and it’s picked up a pair of Golden Globes (Screenplay and Actor) and a host of critic’s choice awards. Box office has also been profitable, opening last October in limited release before expanding nationwide Mid-November to successful box office results—its Best Picture win will most likely edge it over or close to the one hundred million mark.

Not only is Birdman (or The Virtue of Ignorance) arguably the best film of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s impressive filmography (from a list that includes Amores Perros, »

Oscars: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Wins Best Director for ‘Birdman’

22 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has won the Best Director Oscar for “Birdman,” his groundbreaking comedy-drama exploring inner voices and the desperation of acting.

The Mexico native won over Wes Anderson for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Richard Linklater for “Boyhood,” Bennett Miller for “Foxcatcher” and Morten Tydlum for “The Imitation Game.”

Linklater and “Boyhood” had been regarded as the awards-season front-runners until recent weeks.. The unique nature of “Birdman,” with its long takes and intensity, has elevated the status of the latter.

Inarritu directed “Birdman” to be shown as a single shot with production taking place in 23 days in New York City during the spring of 2013 with a budget of $16.5 million.

The Oscar win for Inarritu comes two weeks after he took the DGA trophy – one of the top indicators of Oscar sentiment with all but seven of the DGA winners since 1948 going on to take the Best Director Oscar. Fellow Meixcan »

Watch: Video Homage To Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu Puts His Films Into Focus

17 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Up until last year’s “Birdman,” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu was mostly known for making gritty, dour dramas with sprawling ensembles. Though the Best Picture nominee does have its own introspective moments, most of the runtime is filled with a dizzying madcap energy that makes the Inarritu of “Amores Perros” seem lightyears away from the Oscar frontrunner of today. With this year’s Academy Awards only days away, it’s time to take a look back at the filmography of the Oscar nominee. Thanks to our pals over at Press Play, there’s a short video essay from Steven Thomas being floated around that tracks the Mexican director from his debut feature-length film 15 years ago to last year’s triumphant (CG-assisted) one-take wonder. Watch Thomas’ “Focus” below and pick up “Birdman” on DVD or Blu-ray starting today. »

From 'The Thin Man' to 'Dogfight': A broken-hearted Valentine's playlist

14 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It has not been an easy week. At the start of the week, we had our editorial meeting here at HitFix, as we do every Monday, to talk about both the week ahead and longer-term projects as well. For fairly obvious reasons, there was a fair amount of talk about Valentine's Day content, and I mentioned a few different ideas that I might write about, including one that I'll end up publishing at some point about Steve Martin. But even as I pitched a few ideas, I found myself uncomfortable with the entire idea of writing about romantic films right now. Honestly, I was hoping to spend this week with my head down and then just sail right through this weekend without writing about love at all, because for the first time in my adult life, I am no longer sure what I think about it. After all, I was with my wife for 14 years. »

Throughout this week, the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles presents a career-spanning retrospective of the films of Oscar-nominated "Birdman" director Alejandro González Iñárritu. Last night, the Landmark screened his breakout debut and 2001 Foreign Oscar nominee "Amores Perros," the first in his series of three sprawling, gritty crime epics about disparate, lethally entwined souls. This means you can also catch screenings of his moving brain-teaser "21 Grams" and exhausting Best Picture nominee "Babel," as well as Iñárritu's 2010 departure "Biutiful" starring an Oscar-nominated Javier Bardem.

Iñárritu Offers First Look at 'The Revenant' Starring Leonardo DiCaprio

22 January 2015 9:50 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Alejandro González Iñárritu has certainly not allowed success to make him complacent. The Mexican filmmaker, who rose to prominence following 2000's Amores Perros, is at the peak of his popularity at the moment. His film, the Michael Keaton-starrer Birdman, is currently lighting up the awards circuit. In that film, he employed an extremely sophisticated and technological style of visual storytelling that made the entire movie feel like it was shot all in one continuous take. For his next film, Iñárritu continues to push his storytelling limits.

The film in question is The Revenant, for which he attracted an impressive cast lead by Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domnall Gleeson, and Will Poulter

What visual flare is he going to bring this time around? According to a recent first-look the director offered Entertainment Weekly, the production can only shoot a few hours a day because they're filming using only natural light, »

First look at Leonardo DiCaprio in Alejandro Inarritu's The Revenant

With Birdman still reveling in Oscar nominations, director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is already hard at work on his next film, The Revenant. This is the film that may have caused Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy to drop out of Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic and Suicide Squad, respectively. Lest you think that Inarritu is returning to the same contemporary dramas he was known for before Birdman like Amores Perros, 21 Grams, and Babel, think again. The Revenant, based on a true story, is »
