Hollywood Contenders – Can “Secret in their Eyes” be an awards friendly remake?

19 November 2015 1:55 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The word “remake” is a dirty word to critics, but it doesn’t always have to be the case. Once in a while, something even becomes an awards player, like when Martin Scorsese took Infernal Affairs, remade it as The Departed, and won the Oscar for Best Picture, along with his first Academy Award for Best Director. It doesn’t happen often, but it has happened. This week, another remake hoping to appeal to the Academy, namely the remake of The Secret in their Eyes (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Feature, incidentally). This time just called Secret in their Eyes, it’s out on Friday and would love to be the next incarnation of The Departed… The film is, as previously mentioned, a remake of the Oscar winning original. It centers around the 13 year obsession over the murder of a government agent’s daughter. The agent, along with her former colleagues, »

Chris Weitz Builds Shield Of Straw

25 August 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There is a trade between the West and the East when it comes to remakes: the Us and other countries convert films such as Infernal Affairs into the likes of The Departed, while China and Japan craft their own versions of, for example, What Women Want and Unforgiven. Headed west is Shield Of Straw, which Chris Weitz will direct.The original is a Takashi Miike Japanese thriller from 2013 that follows five police officers in a squad who must protect an accused murderer from a vengeful death at the hands (or rather, hired killer hands) of his latest victim’s billionaire grandfather. It’s already successful on its own, making the list in competition for the Palme d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. “What struck us most about the original film was how at the core of this action thriller, there was an intense morality tale,” Weitz said. “It’s »

Just how far can the 'Jurassic World' sequel really go?

23 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

After 25 years, ‘The Krays’ still holds up

21 July 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Krays

Written by Philip Ridley

Directed by Peter Medak

UK, 1990

Gangster movies have been entertaining audiences since the inception of cinema. A well-constructed gangster film can attract respectable actors, reap critical praise, and accrue the life-long love of fans in a way that few other genres can. Mean Streets, Infernal Affairs, and Goodfellas are all classic films that continue to resonate with audiences long after their theatrical runs. While most favorite gangster movie conversations include the usual round up of The Godfather, Scarface and The Departed, there is a little known British film that warrants a place in the conversation. Back in 1990, director Peter Medak’s biographical crime/drama film The Krays, flew under the radar of everyone but the most hardcore gangster-flick nerds. With the upcoming film Legend (featuring Tom Hardy in the role of both Kray twins) just on the horizon, it seemed like an appropriate time »

Remake. Reboot. Rehash.

12 April 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rob Blues on remakes, reboots and rehashes…

There were three films I saw in the 1980’s that blew me away and in doing so scorched into my mind the brilliance of original film.

Ghostbusters, Back to the Future & The Goonies.

If you are my age then these films will hold a special place in your heart. The first time I fell in love with film for sure. I still genuinely believe that all three films are about as perfect as movies can get. I remember saying to a friend of mine a few years ago that if they ever decided to remake any of my holy trinity then I would stop watching films forevermore. I wouldn’t, I’d had a beer or two and might have gotten a bit carried away, but the sentiment was there. These films are surely untouchable.

And now a Ghostbusters reboot is in the offing. »

Damon & Dafoe Join Full Cast For Zhang Yimou’s ‘The Great Wall’

11 March 2015 10:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

China is certainly where the money is these days. With an ever expanding box-office take each year, and more and more foreign films being allowed a release, it’s no wonder that Hollywood and the big studios want a piece of the pie. Unfortunately this has lead to a lot of needless pandering, such as Chinese exclusive scenes in Iron Man 3 and lots of behind kissing in Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Legendary, the studio behind the likes of Pacific Rim and Godzilla, look to be taking a more organic approach with The Great Wall, an American/Chinese co-production with Universal Pictures, China Film Co. Ltd., and Le Vision Pictures.

The film, directed by the incredible Zhang Yimou, sees humanity making a last stand on the titular wonder of the world against mythical monsters in 15th Century China. Yimou is most famous for his wuxia films, Hero and House Of Flying Daggers. »

Martin Scorsese and The Departed

22 February 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Martin Scorsese is one of the most iconic directors of all time. He created such groundbreaking films like Taxi Driver and Gangs of New York. Yet it took him eight Oscar nominations, five Best Director nominations alone, until he finally received the Best Director Academy Award in 2006 for the film The Departed. Let's look back at the film that finally landed Scorese the gold.

Scorsese is one of those directors that has been creating for generations. He's the known for creating and depicting the worst antiheroes that you can't help but like and can't stop watching. You follow them on their twisted journeys and sometimes untimely demises, all while that same Rolling Stone song (“Gimme Shelter”) plays in the background. Your parents loved him, you love him, and I'm sure your children will or already do love him. There's always one particular movie of his that you discover that makes »

Film Review: ‘Brave Men’s Blood’

18 February 2015 10:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A cop in Internal Affairs discovers the head of the narc unit is on the take in Olaf de Fleur’s “Brave Men’s Blood,” a by-the-book cop drama with a script that resembles any number of TV police shows. Reprising three of the major roles from Fleur’s locally popular “City State,” this sequel doesn’t demand prior knowledge (though it will increase a sense of character), since “Brave” stands alone on its wobbly feet. Solid if standard visuals and a relatively involving storyline may translate into Ok biz in Nordic territories; home play following an October opening was decent.

Gunnar Gunnerson (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) was Iceland’s biggest drug dealer until his territory was taken over by Serbian immigrant Sergej (Zlatko Krickic). Now in the slammer, Gunnar wants revenge, so turns to rookie cop Hannes (Darri Ingolfsson), new to Internal Affairs, telling him that drug division chief Margeir »

Berlin: Distribution Workshop Regains Independence From China’s Bona (Exclusive)

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

Distribution Workshop, one of Asia’s leading film sales companies, is to regain its independence after a period of control by China’s Bona Film Group.

Dw founders Jeffrey Chan and Nansun Shi have increased their shareholding in the company from 49% to 60% following a new share issue that injected additional capital into the company and which diluted Bona down to a 40% minority position.

The move paves the way for Hong Kong-based Dw to expand its activities beyond simple sales representation and into production and finance, further into mainland Chinese cinema and potentially into other fields such as television, licensing and ancillaries. The expansion may require the company to launch a further round of fundraising.

Chan has no plans to relinquish his role within Nasdaq-listed Bona, where he is currently COO reporting to Bona’s founder, chairman and CEO Yu Dong.

Dw expects to retain the right of first refusal on »
