Playback: Willem Dafoe on ‘The Florida Project’ and a Return to Superhero Movies in ‘Aquaman’

12 October 2017 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Willem Dafoe is making waves for his performance in Sean Baker’s “The Florida Project,” the critically-acclaimed story of a community of extended-stay motel guests in Central Florida. He plays the kind-hearted property manager Bobby in the film, and it’s a touching, tender portrayal that could net him his third Oscar nomination to date (after supporting bids for “Platoon” and “Shadow of the Vampire”).

In the film, Dafoe finds himself the central node, the recognizable face in a sea of non- and new actors. It was a varied ensemble experience featuring precocious children and even performers cast off Instagram.

Listen to this week’s episode of “Playback” below. New episodes air every Thursday.

'Stranger Things': 7 Questions We Have For Season 2

29 August 2017 6:11 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Has it only been a little over a year since Stranger Things arrived with almost no hype – and then, within days of Netflix dropping the first season online, became one of 2016's most talked-about TV shows? Created by twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, the first season of the sci-fi/horror series paid homage to Stephen King novels and the Eighties' classic Spielberg-to-slasher genre films, while telling a story about super-powered paranormal entities, covert government agencies, small-town Indiana kids and a dark dimension known as "the Upside Down." Even more than the nostalgic kick, »

Art Directors Guild Adds Animated Feature Category to Its Awards

16 August 2017 3:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Art Directors Guild has added an animated feature category to its Excellence in Production Design Awards, slated for Jan. 27 in the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.

The award for production design for an animated feature film accompanies the theme for the event’s latest edition, “Production Design in Animation: Celebrating 100 Years of Imagination.”

“It is our intention to honor and celebrate great Production Design achievements in the remarkable and evolving art form of animation through this new award. By separating feature animation into its own constituent category, we wish to pay tribute to these creative works in a manner equivalent to all our other feature design categories,” said Thomas A. Walsh, an Adg Event producer along with Thomas Wilkins.

Animated features in hand-drawn, CGI, clay animation/puppet, and motion-capture styles may qualify for the category, but animation must figure in at least 75% of the film’s running time.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature Review

10 August 2017 9:23 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

Sometimes the best way to promote positive themes concerning the environment, and the protection of nature – is through the prism of a family adventure movie, taking real life themes and making them accessible, in a playful, almost irreverent manner. Whether than be Wall-e or The Lorax – it’s a successful means of tapping in to a young crowd and projecting important lessons, albeit dressed up in rather fantastical attire. That’s the case for The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, as we cast our eye over the selfish money-makers in society, those ruining the environment for personal, financial gain – in this instance focusing in on a crazed politician destroying the local park simply as it brings in so little money.

Following on from the surprisingly good original movie, Cal Brunker’s endeavour reconnects us with Surly (Will Arnett), a squirrel who is sitting on a fortune – of nuts. »

July 2017 Box Office Marks Third Straight Month in Decline

8 August 2017 4:43 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

After July 2015 and 2016 saw increases from one year to the next, July 2017 took a step back, down 12.2% compared to 2016 with calendar grosses reaching $1.2 billion from 221 films compared to $1.37 billion last July. Leading the way was Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which topped all releases bringing in $280 million in July, earning Sony the #1 spot for the month with six films grossing nearly $390 million. Overall, this marks the third month in a row to show a decline compared to 2016 with the summer movie season struggling and showing no sign of improvement in the month of August with the season currently pacing 11% behind 2016. Overall, August is likely to become the sixth month out of the first eight in 2017 to show a decline from one year to the next with 2017 currently -2% behind 2016. Digging deeper into July, we'll start at the top with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which delivered $280 million since its July 7 release. The film is now approaching $300 million domestically, »

Deep seems like a cheap Finding Nemo rip-off, then Boom, dystopia!

4 August 2017 2:09 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Not going to lie guys, it's been a pretty slow news day today. So while sifting through different stories, I come across a cheap looking animated film from Lionsgate that looked like to cash in on Finding Nemo almost 15 years too late. Maybe could make for a funny article, I thought. At this point I'm desperate. Then I watch it, and yep, seems like a pretty standard Pixar rip-o...wait, are... Read More »

Shark Week 2017: more fishy tales or nature TV's great-white hope?

21 July 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Discovery Channel’s popular weeklong series is back on Sunday with documentaries and a much hyped race between Michael Phelps and a shark

This Sunday marks the return of a Us pastime that’s up there with baseball and apple pie: Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. When it began in 1988, the event was a beneficiary of the pop-culture sensation started by the release of Steven Spielberg’s Jaws 13 years earlier. The film launched sharks into the national consciousness with a potent mix of blood-thirst and perverse thrills. Since Jaws, sharks have continued to chomp through the popular imagination: from the ridiculous (the sharks in Austin Powers, featuring laser beams on their heads, and the Tara Reid-helmed disaster movie Sharknado) to memeable oddities such as Finding Nemo’s Bruce.

The Top 25 Box Office Blockbusters of the 21st Century

13 July 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No subjective “best” list here, this one is based on stats. As the 21st century turns 16, we’ve got the 25 biggest-grossing domestic blockbusters to date.

Check the stunning list below, which is unlike any previous period in movie business history. (We’re using adjusted totals to account for changing ticket prices. Box Office Mojo’s top 200 all-time adjusted list is here.) Here’s what we learned by doing the numbers:

The 21st Century Has Delivered Many of the Biggest Hits in History

25 of the 100 all-time biggest-grossing films have come from the first 16 years of this century. 1984 to 2000, the era that perfected the modern blockbuster and mass release of movies, brought 17. So the 21st century has been an era of major hits.

But oddly, the first current-century films on the all-time-grossers list places #11: “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” And “Avatar” is #14. (This is where adjusting becomes essential — unadjusted, the ten »

'Despicable Me 3' Isn't Great, But Does It Matter?

1 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Within the first few minutes of Despicable Me 3, a few of the ubiquitous yellow, gibberish-spouting Minions maneuver an underwater vehicle past a host of sea creatures to catch up with their boss, Steve Carell’s Gru. Pointedly, the Minions use their vehicle to run over a pair of colorful clown fish, much like Marlin and his son, Nemo, from Pixar’s massively popular Finding Nemo and Finding Dory films. The gag takes up no more than five seconds, but it’s hard not to see this as a meta-commentary on an unavoidable truth: Over the last few years, Pixar’s greatest outside competition is »

Emmys 2017: the Duffer Brothers talk 'Stranger Things'

30 June 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

For the Us filmmaking duo, developing their sci-fi nostalgia-trip TV series Stranger Things was the culmination of a well-spent youth.

Growing up in North Carolina in the 1980s, twins Matt and Ross Duffer developed a love for genre and sci-fi with a particular passion for Steven Spielberg movies and Stephen King novels.

In a formative life event, echoing the plot of Jj AbramsSpielberg-inspired Super 8, the pair were gifted a video camera during third grade and began making amateur films.

Relocating to California to study film at Chapman University, the duo graduated in 2007 and immediately began taking steps into the movie business, collaborating on a series of short films and feature screenplays. Warner Bros optioned their post-apocalyptic horror script Hidden in 2011, and hired the brothers to direct Alexander Skarsgard and Andrea Riseborough in the film, which was released in 2015. While that project did not instantly propel them to stardom, the script »

John Powell interview: scoring Bourne, Hans Zimmer, Face/Off and more

Sean Wilson Jul 6, 2017

Composer John Powell chats to us about scoring Jason Bourne, working with John Woo, his upcoming work and more.

Few contemporary film composers have made an impact quite like John Powell. From animation to drama to his immediately influential, propulsive Bourne soundtracks, Powell's energetic, emotional and heartfelt blend of symphony orchestra, electronics and percussion make him a singular voice.

See related  Jurassic World review Looking back at Jurassic Park

Ahead of his BAFTA Screen Talks event at the Royal Albert Hall on 10th July, we were delighted to catch up with John to discuss his remarkable career and the secret to a truly great film score.

So 10 years after I saw The Bourne Ultimatum on the big screen and being electrified by your score I'm sat here talking to you, which is a real privilege. I wondered was there a particular film score that inspired you to become a film composer? »

We’ve seen some of Coco and it’s a dark and beautiful new direction for Pixar

22 June 2017 3:12 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Linda Marric

Could an animation which deals with themes relating to death and the afterlife be the thing to give Pixar the push it’s been craving for the last couple of years?  After years of being at the top of their game, Pixar take things even further by challenging themselves and their audiences with the release of Coco, a film which references Mexican culture and tradition in the most positive way. Coco is not only a brave departure from Pixar and Disney’s Anglocentric traditions, but can also be regarded as a love letter to Mexico and its people.

An early footage presentation given to the press this week in London showcased the brilliance of co-director and screenwriter Adrian Molina, who was in attendance alongside Producer Darla K Anderson. In their presentation, the pair were able to divulge some of the secrets behind this highly anticipated animation and what to expect when it’s finished. Being of Mexican descent, Molina admits to using his own family’s experiences and Hispanic background to tell a story relating to the tradition of Dia de los Muertos (The Day of of the Dead), a festival in which Mexican families honour and remember their dead.

Molina also admits to being very inspired by artist José Guadalupe Posada’s and his Dia de los Muertos iconic artwork. With colourful representations of skulls, bones and the celebratory iconography of death and the afterlife, the film is bound to strike a chord with those familiar with this tradition and even those who are less au-fait with it.

Co-Directed by Lee Unkrich (Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3) Coco follows the adventures of 12 year-old Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) who finds himself in the land of the Dead after going against the wishes of his family and stealing something valuable from a deceased local celebrity. Unkrich, Molina and their team went though a grueling process in selecting Gonzalez for the role. As both Darla K Anderson and Molina reiterated at the presentation, the role had to go to someone who not only could act, but who could also sing and be a good all-rounder.

Darling of indie cinema and hugely talented Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal also lends his voice to this production. He plays a dead entertainer who wants to help Miguel in his quest of getting back to the land of the living. Benjamin Pratt voices a character named Ernesto de la Cruz, a traditional singer and performer who according to Molina is inspired by classical Mexican cinema.

The unfinished footage, although missing quite a bit of artwork, shows the huge potential attached to this production. Molina and Anderson talked candidly about the camaraderie on set with members of the crew who were from Mexican descent also chipping in with ideas and correcting any inaccuracies, which is sure to put any doubts about cultural appropriation to rest.

Equally, it is also worth mentioning that any doubts or misgivings anyone might have had regarding the universality of this story, are quickly dissipate the more we find out about this beautifully crafted production and the people who worked tirelessly to bring it to fruition. Coco might be seen by some as a direct response to Trump’s America, its positive outlook on the Mexican community will surely help dissipate decades of stereotypes in Hollywood cinema and are sure to help those who want to make stories about their own communities.

Tonally, the film is rather dark in its subject, but is never short on laughs and mischief. The dialogue, although in English, is peppered with Spanish words and hugely affecting and joyous musical pieces, which are sure to stick with you even after leaving the cinema.

Coco strikes the right balance between trying to please the adults in the room, without ever alienating its younger audiences. Add to that, the presence of a “not so cute” hairless dog names Danté  and you have all the ingredients needed for a well rounded, charming and enjoyable feature. And whether we like it or not, the use of skull iconography, which has become prominent even in the UK around Halloween time recently, is only likely to get more popular with kids wanting to emulate their new favourite Disney movie.

On the whole, Coco looks to be destined for success, judging by the reaction to the film at the presentation, and even if it fails to garner as much interest as its predecessors, its makers should be commended for stepping out their comfort zone and giving us this truly wonderful story.

Pixar’s Coco arrives in the Us on November 22, and in the UK on January 19, 2018.
