Francis Ford Coppola Starts Experimental ‘Live Cinema’ Project at UCLA

23 July 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Francis Ford Coppola has launched an ambitious “Distant Vision” project as a “live cinema” experiment at his alma mater, the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

Coppola unveiled details of the multi-year project at a news conference Saturday, following his month-long collaboration with 75 UCLA students and faculty on “Distant Vision,” the story of three generations of an Italian-American family whose history spans the development of television.

The collaboration culminated Friday with a 27-minute live broadcast of the “Distant Vision” script from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television’s Freud Playhouse to a limited audience. The tasks for the students and faculty included operating over 40 cameras, acting and working on sound, set design and construction, costume, props, editing, stage management and producing.

UCLA co-sponsored the workshop with American Zoetrope, Coppola’s production company. Coppola was the writer and director.

Coppola’s “live cinema” concept is based on using »

Christine Langan exit: industry reacts

20 July 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen canvasses industry opinion on Langan’s tenure and the prospects for one of the UK’s cornerstone funders.

There have been warm tributes to Christine Langan as news broke yesterday of her impending departure from BBC Films to join UK production outfit Baby Cow.

Attention is also now beginning to turn to who is likely to be her successor and what plans the BBC has for its film arm in the long run.

“Christine leaves BBC Films in good shape,” commented producer Stewart Mackinnon of Headline Pictures, who worked with the broadcaster’s film arm on titles including Quartet and The Invisible Woman, among other projects.

Pride producer David Livingstone noted Langan’s “incisiveness.”

“The thing I remember particularly about Christine is her giving very good notes about the final editing of the film (Pride). She was very clear and very precise, and with a light hand on the tiller,” Livingstone said.

Would You Buy a Porsche From Kristen Stewart?

15 July 2016 11:32 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Before becoming a household name thanks to “Twilight”—and a formidable actor in her own right with films like “On the Road” and “Clouds of Sils Maria”—Kristen Stewart was a promising young child actor starring in movies like “Catch That Kid” and “Panic Room.” And that’s not to mention the occasional commercial! In this 1999 Porsche commercial, Stewart play a daughter who, after missing the school bus, goads her dad into driving her over in his sleek and stylish 911 Carrera. Clearly enjoying herself along the way, she learns to “miss the bus” a second time to do it all over again the next day. Watch the young Stewart at work below! You could be next!

Francis Ford Coppola Relaunches Zoetrope.Com Site for Short Films

12 July 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has relaunched his 19-year-old virtual studio Zoetrope.com, adding a showcase for short films.

The website, which touts itself as setting the precedent for a new era of crowd-sourcing and writing workshops, includes acting resumes, photography, song writing, short films, stories, novels, scripts, short flash fiction, poetry, music and photos.

The new short films section is designed to offer screenwriters, directors and producers peer feedback. Zoetrope.com requires that for every story a member submits, they are required to review five other works, so each person gets exposed to other writing which provides growing opportunities in addition to receiving feedback.

“When I was a kid I remember looking in the locked gates of a movie studio which was across the street from the Junior High School I was attending,” Coppola said in a statement. “I was wishing that I could get in and see what these mythical movie studios were. »

Tom Sturridge: ‘If I’d been a parent to myself, I would have been scared’

3 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The actor on rebellion, the power of fear, why Damian Lewis would never offer advice, and the irrelevance of awards

Tom Sturridge, 30, is the son of the actor Phoebe Nicholls and the director Charles Sturridge, who cast him, aged eight, in the TV series Gulliver’s Travels. After abandoning his A-levels, Sturridge starred in the films Being Julia, The Boat That Rocked and On the Road, and the plays Punk Rock (winning the Critics’ Circle theatre award for most outstanding newcomer), American Buffalo and Orphans on Broadway, for which he was nominated for a Tony. Sturridge has a three-year-old daughter from a previous relationship with the actor Sienna Miller. His latest film, Remainder, adapted from the Tom McCarthy novel, is directed by the visual artist Omer Fast.

As an artist, did Fast have a different approach to film-making?

The Kids Are Alright: How Ya Stars Have Become The Unlikely Saviors Of American Indie Film

28 June 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Our national nightmare is over: After more than a decade of dystopian futures, obtuse love triangles, and weak Charli Xcx singles, Hollywood’s flash-in-the-pan love affair with Ya film adaptations has finally run its course. You can feel it in the air, and you can see it in the dwindling box office returns. The climactic installments of “The Maze Runner” and “The Divergent Series” are still on the horizon, and an unusually promising adaptation of John Green’s “Looking for Alaska” continues to percolate in pre-production, but bodies tend to wriggle for a little while after they’re officially pronounced dead. The fact of the matter is that Voldemort has been vanquished, the people of District 12 have overthrown The Capitol, and Bella Swan has stopped pouting. There will always be movies made for the tween audience, but make no mistake: The Ya world as we know it has come to an end. »

Watch Ricky Gervais Croon, Make Crude Jokes in 'David Brent' Trailer

17 June 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"I'm currently a singer-songwriter – and a rep," David Brent (Ricky Gervais) pseudo-boasts in the hilarious first trailer for David Brent: Life on the Road. The clip previews the former Office star's attempts at rock star reinvention as he performs middling concerts with hodgepodge live band Foregone Conclusion.

The story picks up 12 years after the BBC mockumentary. "I left Wernham Hogg, and I found myself again," Brent says in his trademark cheeky tone. "And I started to do what I do best: entertain … I'm putting a tour together. On the road »

How IFC Films Got Into the Kristen Stewart Business

8 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

During the past four years, New York-based distributor IFC Films and its Sundance Selects label have released six films starring Stewart that together have redefined her post-“Twilight” career.

Stewart broke out at Cannes 2012 in Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road,” followed by 2014’s Sundance war drama “Camp X-Ray,” Olivier Assayas’ Cannes competition title “Clouds of Sils Maria,” for which she was the first American woman to win France’s Cesar award, and Kelly Reichardt’s upcoming “Certain Women,” which debuted in Sundance 2016. Stewart was back at Cannes headlining not only Woody Allen opener “Cafe Society” (Amazon), but Assayas’s supernatural Paris mystery “Personal Shopper” (IFC), affirming her reputation for working with a diverse group of brainy directors in films that span genres, budgets and languages.

In other words, Stewart and IFC are both in the smart movie business. “I can’t think of another actress »

Mindy Newell: Hard Labor

30 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

So Mike Gold, our old and grumpy and sly editor, threw down the gauntlet last week, challenging the marvelous Marc Fishman and the grammatically incorrect me to read the same comic and opine on it. That comic was DC Rebirth #1, the umpteenth revision of the company’s four-color mythos. Marc had his turn on Saturday. Today is mine.

Unlike Marc, I didn’t have travel a long and hard road 45 minutes from my suburban home to another suburb “to make a transaction.” Unlike Marc, I live in a city and the nearest comics store is three blocks away. However, I’m not a particular fan of this four-color emporium – I used to have a fantastic shop six blocks away where I browsed and hung out and bought for many decades, but it closed because of the owner’s illness – so I downloaded and read the e-comic version.

First the positives:

Kristen Stewart has become a critical darling - but does the public even know that?

18 May 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's fair to say that Kristen Stewart has been straining mightily to turn over a new leaf in her career, and in some sense, she already has: in the years since she finished her run as the star of the critically-reviled but wildly-popular Twilight series, she's managed to transform into one the critical community's favorite stars. Look no further than the reviews out of Cannes for Stewart's performance in Olivier Assayas's uncategorizable Personal Shopper, in which the actress stars as Maureen, an American living in Paris who pays the bills by working as an assistant to a demanding French model/actress (Nora von Waldstätten). She also happens to be a psychic medium who is literally and figuratively haunted by the spirit of her late twin brother, who died in the French capital shortly before the events of the movie begin to unfurl. While several members of the notoriously volatile »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Personal Shopper’

16 May 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a certain perverse genius to unveiling a ghost movie at Cannes that relies on the audience to deliver the “boos” as the final credits roll, although one doubts that’s quite what Olivier Assayas was going for with his peculiar “Personal Shopper.” The wildly unconventional study of a young American woman going through a spiritual crisis — in more ways than one — this reunion between Kristen Stewart and the director who gave her one of her best-ever roles in 2014’s “Clouds of Sils Maria” is a broken, but never boring mix of spine-tingling horror story, dreary workplace drama and elliptical identity search, likely to go down as one of the most divisive films of Stewart’s career.

Apart from a handful of ultra-violent slasher movies (such as “High Tension” and “Them”), contemporary French cinema seldom ventures into the realm of horror. Not that ultra-cinema-savvy critic-turned-helmer Assayas seems particularly worried about such traditions. »

Comic Book Review: The Ultimates #7

13 May 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Synopsis:

On the road to Civil War II! The Ultimates deal with the fallout from their journey Outside - and the return of the Anti-Man! Meanwhile, Project: Pegasus holds the key to humanity's survival... or destruction...and Thanos is coming for it!

Review:

A sort of “mission” statement from Al Ewing and Ken Rocafort from back in the first issue of The Ultimates was how they wanted to harken back to the Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch series. They wanted to create big cinematic set pieces and deal with large scale issues. That’s a very good idea, but the execution of that idea? Not so much. 

I enjoy my space cosmic drama. I like Guardians of the Galaxy and Nova.  I really enjoy Venom Spaceknight and Captain Marvel, but I just can’t get into this series. I’m not a fan of how Black Panther is written- he »

Kristen Stewart Lets Down Her Guard: Inside Her Reinvention

9 May 2016 5:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kristen Stewart arrives at a French restaurant in Los Feliz without an entourage — no publicist, no bodyguard. She’s incognito, with a hat pulled low on her head, hands in her pockets, bare arms dressed with tattoos. Looking like any other hipster, she greets the waiter with a mellow “What’s up, dude?” (“dude” and “f—k” are her two favorite words) and orders a glass of champagne with a cup of ice. As she reflects on her life, she takes periodic sips, letting the cubes, one by one, melt into the fizz.

At only 26, Stewart is in the middle of reinventing her career. After catapulting to fame at 17 in the young-adult vampire franchise “Twilight,” she couldn’t leave her house without flashbulbs trailing her every step. The public became obsessed with her relationship with her then-boyfriend (and co-star) Robert Pattinson, and she topped every studio’s wish list for it-girl parts. »

'The Huntsman: Winter's War' failed for one simple reason

7 May 2016 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Universal clearly thought it had a new franchise on its hands after the success of Rupert SandersSnow White and the Huntsman in 2012, but that film's sequel/spinoff The Huntsman: Winter's War has officially withered and died at the box office, bringing in a gross of just $19.4 million in its opening weekend and a smidge over $9 million in its second. Throughout its month-long run in domestic and foreign markets (it opened in several territories in early April) the film has managed to climb to $134 million worldwide, but with few territories left to open in and little juice left in its U.S. release, the film will likely struggle to hit the $200 million mark -- or about half of the first movie $396 million haul. First, the sorta-good news: The Huntsman's production budget is about $55 million less than its predecessor, with a total cost of about $115 million as opposed to the original's $170 million. »

Official Trailer for Documentary 'Jia Zhangke, A Guy From Fenyang'

5 May 2016 5:46 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"This shot carries a memory within it." Kino Lorber has debuted a trailer for the documentary called Jia Zhangke, A Guy From Fenyang, directed by Walter Salles, taking a look at the life of famed Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke. It looks like a fantastic documentary with some incredible footage of Jia Zhangke in China, and all over the world. Salles last directed the Jack Kerouac adaptation On the Road, but returns to docs to make this stunning feature on another very talented filmmaker/storyteller - Jia Zhangke, of films like A Touch of Sin, Mountains May Depart, Still Life, 24 City, The World and many others. This is a rather beautiful trailer with some poetic imagery, it really makes me want to see this documentary. Watch below. Here's the trailer for Walter Salles' doc Jia Zhangke, A Guy From Fenyang, in high def on Apple: And here's a Q&A »

Trailer for Walter Salles’ ‘Jia Zhangke, A Guy From Fenyang’ Follows One of the World’s Great Directors

5 May 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Within the wide-ranging international conversation surrounding contemporary cinema, few names land on best-working-filmmaker lists as often as Jia Zhangke — a natural result when so few filmmakers are at all like Jia Zhangke. A dramatist (of melodrama, neorealism, action, sci-fi, the semi-musical), a documentarian, and a social chronicler in either mode, he’s built one of this era’s most consistent and, in the scope of his native China, revealing oeuvres. And now the camera is turning on him, for Walter Salles‘ (The Motorcycle DiariesOn the Road) has fashioned yet another chronicle with Jia Zhangke A Guy From Fenyang.

It seems his efforts have befitted a cinematic showcasing: following its strong slate of reviews from the past 18 months, A Guy from Fenyang will be released by Kino Lorber later this month. A surprisingly revealing and intimate preview has landed, and in just two-and-a-half minutes it’s turned this Jia fan »
