Imagine Confirms Raine Group Investment

8 February 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine Entertainment has confirmed that it has a new financial backer, the Raine Group.

Variety first broke the news that the merchant bank was putting more than $100 million into the production company behind “Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind,” and “The Da Vinci Code.” Imagine did not confirm the size of the investment beyond dubbing it “significant.”

Imagine is headed up by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The investment comes as other top-shelf production companies, among them Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, are on the prowl for new financial partners who will give them the capital to compete in a changing movie and media business.

“The ways in which content is created and consumed are transforming faster than ever before, expanding in directions that hadn’t been conceived even a few years ago,” Grazer said in a statement. “The opportunity to extend Imagine’s reach across this expanding landscape is a driving force for us. »

DGA Awards: Is ‘Revenant’ the New Oscar Frontrunner? (Analysis)

7 February 2016 12:07 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

Two weekends ago, the Producers Guild of America went for The Big Short. Last weekend, the Screen Actors Guild went forSpotlight. And now, this weekend, the Directors Guild of America has gone for The Revenant.

In the 24 previous years in which the three highest-profile guilds presented their top prizes, a split of this nature has happened four times: 15 years ago, when the PGA went for Gladiator, SAG went for Traffic and the DGA went for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; 14 years ago, when the PGA went for Moulin Rouge!, SAG went for Gosford Park and the DGA went for A Beautiful Mind; 11 years ago, when the PGA went for The Aviator, SAG went for Sideways and the DGA went for Million Dollar Baby; and two years ago, when the PGA went for 12 Years a Slave and Gravity (they allegedly tied), SAG went for American Hustle »

Alejandro G. Inarritu’s ‘Revenant’ DGA Win Keeps Oscar Guessing Game Going

6 February 2016 11:26 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The only thing Alejandro G. Inarritu really had going against him heading into this year’s Directors Guild of America awards ceremony was that he just won a year ago for “Birdman.” Apparently, that wasn’t enough.

The “Revenant” director became the first filmmaker to ever win back-to-back DGA honors for feature filmmaking Saturday night, and really, beyond the simple unlikely nature of that prospect, it’s difficult to call it a shock. After all, it’s not a hard sell to the guild’s 13,000 members that production on “The Revenant” was no walk in the park. That’s certainly been the overbearing linchpin of the film’s campaign these last several weeks, a narrative that is helping to propel Leonardo DiCaprio to his first Oscar. But moreover, voters in this group, they know very well what it takes to pull off a project like this. So they voted accordingly. »

Superficial 'News,' Mineo-Dean Bromance-Romance and Davis' fading 'Star': 31 Days of Oscar

6 February 2016 6:49 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Broadcast News' with Albert Brooks and Holly Hunter. '31 Days of Oscar': 'Broadcast News' slick but superficial critics pleaser (See previous post: “Phony 'A Beautiful Mind,' Unfairly Neglected 'Swing Shift': '31 Days of Oscar'.”) Heralded for its wit and incisiveness, James L. Brooks' multiple Oscar-nominated Broadcast News is everything the largely forgotten Swing Shift isn't: belabored, artificial, superficial. That's very disappointing considering Brooks' highly addictive Mary Tyler Moore television series (and its enjoyable spin-offs, Phyllis and Rhoda), but totally expected considering that three of screenwriter-director Brooks' five other feature films were Terms of Endearment, As Good as It Gets, and Spanglish. (I've yet to check out I'll Do Anything and the box office cataclysm How Do You Know starring Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Jack Nicholson.) Having said that, Albert Brooks (no relation to James L.; or to Mel Brooks or Phyllis Brooks or Louise Brooks, »

TCM's Oscar Series: Phony Oscar-Winning Biopic, Minor Hawn Classic

6 February 2016 3:07 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Beautiful Mind' with Russell Crowe. '31 Days of Oscar' on TCM: 'The Wind and the Lion,' 'The Man Who Would Be King' Turner Classic Movies' “31 Days of Oscar” continues on Saturday, Feb. 6, '16, with more recent fare – as in, several films released in the last four decades. Among these are The Wind and the Lion, The Man Who Would Be King, A Beautiful Mind, Swing Shift, and Broadcast News. John Milius' The Wind and the Lion and John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King are both 1975 releases featuring “Westerners” (i.e., white people) stranded in “exotic” and potentially dangerous locales (i.e., places inhabited by dark-skinned non-Christians) in the distant past: the former in early 20th century Morocco; the latter in a remote region in colonial India in the late 19th century. (That particular area, Kafiristan, is located in today's Afghanistan.) The thematic similarities between the two films end there, »

Raine Group to Invest $100 Million-Plus in Imagine, Partners Eye Expansion (Exclusive)

28 January 2016 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine Entertainment, the production powerhouse led by longtime partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, is poised for a significant expansion, powered by a $100 million-plus investment from the Raine Group under a new partnership agreement, according to multiple sources familiar with the impending deal.

The arrangement anticipates building Imagine into a major media player with other investors as part of the transaction, said two individuals familiar with the pact. The deal has yet to be signed but is just days away from being finalized.

Raine, the 6-year-old New York merchant bank, has ready access to capital and myriad potential partners. While the new allies have no current acquisition targets, they will scout out other media assets for acquisition on an opportunistic basis. In the near term, the $100 million infusion will help Imagine generate new film and television projects.

The new partnership will leave producer Grazer, 64, and director Howard, 61, atop the company they founded 30 years ago, »

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller took home the night’s best director award, »

A Look at the 2015 Best Picture Nominees

15 January 2016 9:27 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The 2015 Oscar nominations have been announced with The Revenant leading the way with 12 nominations followed by Mad Max: Fury Road with ten. After crunching some numbers we've taken a look at how this year's crop of Best Picture nominees stacks up to prior, pre-nomination box office totals. Have a look at what we found after comparing this year's eight Best Picture nominees to 190 previous Best Picture contenders, going back 33 years to 1982. Note: Before reading on, please be aware this article is specifically comparing pre-nomination grosses (not adjusted for inflation) unless otherwise noted. To begin, Room is the sixth lowest grossing Best Picture nominee (pre-nominations) in the last 33 years with $5.1 million. The five lower grossing films are American Sniper ($3.3M), Letters from Iwo Jima ($2.5M), My Left Foot ($2.1M), The Dresser ($562k) and Amour ($371k). In fact, Room will likely end up as one of the top ten lowest grossing Best »

How the Golden Globes and Oscars Have Come Together on Best Picture in the 21st Century

8 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

This Sunday the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will present their picks for best dramatic and comedy/musical picture at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards.

The Globes are the first major indicator for Oscar and since the HFPA honors both dramas and comedies in their dual best picture categories the chances of the Globes’ pick overlapping with the Academy’s is two-fold.

Those interested in predicting this year’s winner for best picture at the Oscars will be paying close attention to the Globes this Sunday, as a number of Golden Globe winners have gone on to take home the statuette for best pic. In a year such as this, with no standout frontrunner in a tight Oscar race, the focus is even sharper on who will win this weekend in hopes that some clearer picture will come into focus.

Here’s a look at how »
