Held for Questioning (Der Aufenthalt)

22 August 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Sylvester Groth shines in this East German movie about a luckless private in a Polish prison, thrown in with a group of defeated Nazi war criminals. For a country that usually paints the ideological divide in black and white red, Frank Beyer’s film of Hermann Kant’s semi-autobiographical story is surprisingly even-handed. An excellent addition to films from behind the old Iron Curtain.

21 Actors Who Prove Bilingual is Better

14 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Have you ever performed in a language that is not your own? Whether you grew up in a bilingual household or mastered a foreign tongue in school, speaking more than one language can be a major asset as an actor. Need proof? Here are 21 stars who have delivered their best work in two (or more!) languages. Salma HayekHayek made her debut on the Mexican soap opera “Teresa” before breaking into Hollywood in the early 1990s. She has starred in over 40 films and on numerous television shows in both English and Spanish, and frequently draws on her Mexican heritage even in English-speaking roles.

Diane Kruger-Starrer “In the Fade” Acquired by Magnolia

11 August 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“In the Fade”

Diane Kruger’s name is looking more and more likely to enter the awards conversation in the coming months. The “Inglourious Basterds” star took home the Best Actress award at Cannes this year for “In the Fade,” and now comes word that the drama has been acquired by Magnolia Pictures with an awards-qualifying run planned for this autumn. ScreenDaily reports that a theatrical release will follow in early 2018.

The timely, well-reviewed German film sees Kruger playing a woman seeking revenge after her husband and son are killed in a bomb attack carried out by Neo-Nazis.

Diane Kruger’s performance in ‘In the Fade’ is one for the ages,” commented Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles. “It is a stunning anchor to this incredibly timely and powerful film.”

“I was so moved by this movie — it’s a film about terrorism, but also a film about the people who have been left behind,” Kruger has said.

“In the Fade” marks the first time the German actress has acted in her first language. “Disorder,” “The Bridge,” and “The Host” are among Kruger’s previous credits. She’s spoken about the importance of opening up more opportunities for women and hiring more women directors “so that the younger generation can see that anything is possible.”

Diane Kruger-Starrer “In the Fade” Acquired by Magnolia was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Diane Kruger Enters Oscar Race as Magnolia Acquires ‘In the Fade’

8 August 2017 12:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As expected, a top stateside specialty distributor, Magnolia Pictures, has scooped up North American rights to German writer-director Fatih Akin’s acclaimed Cannes entry “In the Fade,” in time for 2017 Oscar consideration. German star Diane Kruger (“Inglourious Basterds”) won Best Actress at Cannes for her intense role as a hard-drinking, tatoo-sporting wife and mother who falls apart as she mourns her husband and son after they are killed in a Neo-Nazi bomb attack. She eventually recovers enough to turn to revenge.

The film screened late in Cannes, without much buzz. And then — despite Nicole Kidman being the toast of the Croisette with “The Beguiled,” “Top of the Lake,” and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” —  Kruger took the prize for best actress. Kidman had to settle for a special jury award.

Magnolia Pictures Buys ‘In the Fade,’ Propelling Diane Kruger Into Oscar Race (Exclusive)

8 August 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the most celebrated movies at this year’s Cannes Film Festival has found a home. “In the Fade,” the German-language drama starring Diane Kruger as a woman who deals with the tragic aftermath of the murder of her family, has sold North American right to Magnolia Pictures, Variety has learned.

The movie, written and directed by Fatih Akin (“Goodbye Berlin,” “The Cut”), earned Kruger stellar reviews and the best actress prize from the Cannes jury.

Awards season prognosticators had been wondering if the movie will open in time for Kruger to qualify for this fall’s best actress race. It will, as Magnolia is planning a year-end theatrical release for “In the Fade” along with an Oscar campaign for its star, best known for her roles in “Inglourious Basterds” and the TV series “The Bridge.” Many critics called “In the Fade” her best performance yet.

Great Films Unfairly Forgotten in Time

6 August 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on forgotten films…

Time is a cruel mistress. It’s the one constant and something no one can alter (except Marty McFly and Doc Brown). Looks go, memories fade and in cinematic terms a film can be forgotten over time. Now sometimes it’s probably a good thing. Take for example the turn of the century and the release of Battlefield Earth. One of the undisputed turkeys of modern cinema. An unmitigated disaster on every level. However it’s not one that always springs directly to mind nowadays when people thing of cinematic disasters. In part there’s been even worse since, and on even more bloated budgets. In that respect, time has been a little kind.

However there are a lot of films which were good, great, maybe on occasion cinematically important which have become hazy memories over time. Perhaps they never quite got the recognition or »

The Lost Projects: 15 Movies Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and More Auteurs Never Made

28 July 2017 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just because you’re a well-established director with award-winning hits and/or commercial successes doesn’t mean you can make any movie you want. Just ask Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Sofia Coppola, Darren Aronofsky, and more. All these auteurs have had passion projects over the years they’ve had to kill or put on indefinite hiatus for a variety of reasons, which is a shame given how incredible all of them sound on paper.

Christopher Nolan taking on Howard Hughes. Spike Lee making a boxing epic around Joe Louis. Kathryn Bigelow resurrecting Joan of Arc for a female warrior saga unlike any the big screen had ever really seen in the 1990s. We’d buy a ticket for all them years in advance if we knew they were definitely happening.

‘Atomic Blonde’ Review: Charlize Theron Crunches Bones Through Diet John le Carré Plotting

26 July 2017 11:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a bargain underlying the whole of Atomic Blonde, wherein director David Leitch wavers between its more cheeky qualities and its adherence to the conventions of generic spy fare. The film is, by definition, “cool” in every sense. Despite some wonky plotting best described as Diet John le Carré and a heavy-handed soundtrack that occasionally gets in its own way, Charlize Theron plows full steam ahead with a taut precision and a physicality commanding every moment with an icy ferocity. Thankfully, this helps you ignore the moments where Leitch employs a somewhat masturbatory, Nicolas Winding Refn-esque tendency to remind you how fucking “cool” it all is.

Set in Berlin just prior to the collapse of the wall, Theron’s Lorraine Broughton is assigned to track down a much sought-after list of all the double agents deployed by MI6 throughout the Cold War. What worked for Mission: Impossible and »

Here’s Why ‘Dunkirk’ Will Likely Make $200 Million At the Domestic Box Office

25 July 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” (Warner Brothers) grossed $6,420,000 on Monday. That brings it to $56.9 million in four days, likely $75 million for its full first week, and over $100 million through 10 days.

A reasonable three-time multiple for its opening weekend total ($50.5 million) would bring the domestic gross ultimately to just over $150 million. But the Monday number hints at higher results. Don’t be surprised if the final number ends up in the $175 million-$200 million range. That, combined with initially positive foreign results, should bring the film to the $500 million worldwide total.

Here’s why that’s likely: The box office for Nolan’s films traditionally come with very healthy multiples, as much as 3.5 or even 4. Monday’s gross confirms that trajectory, since it represents 12.7 percent of what “Dunkirk” made over the weekend. That’s an »

‘Dunkirk’ and the 70mm Experience: Why The Unlikely Comeback of the Big-Screen Format Has Hollywood’s Attention

20 July 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about the way “Dunkirk” has been engineered for the 70mm experience. Christopher Nolan’s WWII epic is being marketed as an immersive big-screen experience, one that the director prefers audience experience in his preferred format. But he never would have been able to convince a studio to invest in this undertaking if weren’t for a few key developments from the past few years.

While shooting on film has made an unexpected comeback in Hollywood, watching a film projected on celluloid has remained a novelty reserved for cinephiles lucky enough to live near a museum or repertory theater still committed to showing film prints. After 35mm projectors were removed from theaters across the country, they never came back; Hollywood loved the ease of digital cinema projection (Dcp), which shaves off the costs of the significant labor, time and cost of making and shipping thousands of film prints. »

‘Dunkirk’ Box Office: Why It Stands Little Chance of Breaking War Movie Records

20 July 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Christopher Nolan’s World War II retreat-and-rescue epic “Dunkirk” has critical acclaim and is the first 2017 studio film to stand as a serious awards contender. However, it’s unlikely to become a significant player among the top war films at the box office.

Over the last decade, Nolan’s made five films that grossed $200 million-$658 million (adjusted domestic). However, while war films can still draw big numbers (Clint Eastwood’s 2014’s “American Sniper” earned $381 million, domestic adjusted), Nolan’s movie may be hampered by history.

Quentin Tarantino Does Manson? That’s News That Should Thrill Cinema Lovers

15 July 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It happens often enough. A great filmmaker announces his next project and you feel a frisson of electricity, a little charge of “Oh, man, that sounds amazing.” I felt it when I heard that Damien Chazelle would follow “La La Land” with an epic drama about Neil Armstrong and the Apollo missions (call it “The Right Stuff Shoots the Moon”). Or when it was revealed, earlier this week, that Barry Jenkins, coming off “Moonlight,” would realize his long-gestating dream of adapting James Baldwin’s 1974 Harlem-set novel “If Beale Street Could Talk.” But it isn’t often — it’s almost never — that the mere announcement of a director’s upcoming film carries a jolt of meaning.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Quentin Tarantino’s next movie would be a dramatization of the events surrounding the Manson family murders, in the summer of 1969. To me, that sounds like the first Tarantino film in a long while that has »

Why Quentin Tarantino’s Manson Murders Project Would Be a Radical Change of Pace

12 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s safe to say that Quentin Tarantino is not happy about Tuesday’s breaking news that his next almost-finished untitled script is based on the true history of the Charles Manson murders. That’s because the writer-director, who is one of Hollywood’s great true auteurs with a unique voice that is inimitable, likes to write his screenplays in private.

Tarantino is an artist, backed by patrons Bob and Harvey Weinstein, who has routinely turned down big-studio directing gigs in order to pursue his own muse. And he can be sensitive to the slings and arrows of public opinion. That’s because he wants to leave a meaningful cinematic legacy of just 10 films. So while he could always change his mind (as Steven Soderbergh did) about his career path, Tarantino does not take lightly his choice of what those last two films will be. (The last one might be “Kill Bill: Vol. 3, »

Quentin Tarantino Wants Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lawrence For New Movie, And They Shouldn’t Resist

12 July 2017 9:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Quentin Tarantino comes knocking, you answer the door. If that’s not an unspoken rule among Hollywood actors, then it very well should be. Tarantino has given movie history badass female protagonists like The Bride and Jackie Brown and wicked villains like Hans Landa and Calvin Candy. Even his cameos often pack more of a wallop than other director’s leading roles (see Michael Parks in “Kill Bill Vol. 2” and Jonah Hill in “Django Unchained”). All of this is to say the obvious: Tarantino creates unforgettable characters, and it wouldn’t be in your best interest to pass on it.

Tarantino is prepping his ninth feature, and if his earlier claim that he’ll retire after 10 films, this one will be his penultimate movie. Working once again with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, »

Quentin Tarantino set to make Manson Murders film; Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence linked

12 July 2017 4:24 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

It seems that we won’t have to wait too much longer to see the next film from Quentin Tarantino as new reports suggest his next project might not be too far away from starting up.

The Hollywood Reporter has said that Tarantino is putting the final touches on his latest script which reportedly centres around the Manson Family murders that took place in the late ’60s. Details on the film aren’t known quite yet but part of the film will focus on the murder of Sharon Tate in 1969, who was the wife of Roman Polanski.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein, who has been involved in previous films with Tarantino, are set to be involved once again and that they are looking for co-financiers and distributors for the film.

In addition, reports suggest that a few big A-listers are being eyed for roles in the film. Brad Pitt, »

Quentin Tarantino’s next film could be about the Manson Murders

12 July 2017 4:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday, some really interesting news began to spread throughout Hollywood. When it comes to some filmmakers, even the mere speculation that a new idea is percolating brings with it a rush of anticipation Apparently, the next movie project from Quentin Tarantino is closer than we think, and may actually be about Sharon Tate and the Charles Manson/Manson Family Murders. This would mark an original work by Tarantino, though one more clearly rooted in historical fact than any before. The true life tragedy, in which cult leader Manson ordered a number of his maniacal followers to attack the guests at a house in a swanky Los Angeles neighborhood, is terrifying. The insane followers brutally murdered everyone who was at the home, including actress Tate, who was eight months pregnant at the time and married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. Rumor has it that Tarantino has this planned for his next turn »

Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film Could Be Based Around The Manson Murders

11 July 2017 11:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Quentin Tarantino is eyeing his next project. According to Heat Vision, the legendary film director is looking to put his ninth directorial effort together, and it may be based around the infamous Manson family murders.

The trade reports that the film could revolve are Sharon Tate, the actress and wife of director Roman Polanski who was murdered by Manson and his followers in 1969. ‘Manson had ordered a group of his followers to attack the inhabitants of a house in the Benedict Canyon part of Los Angeles, believing it was owned by a record producer who earlier had rejected him.’

Tarantino is reportedly already looking at A-list talent to join the project, and early names being banded around include Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and Margot Robbie, who could play Manson victim Sharon Tate.

The project remains untitled and is set up over at The Weinstein Company where it will be produced by Bob and Harvey Weinstein, »

More Tarantino Bloodshed Coming

11 July 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Quentin Tarantino has begun to lineup his next film to shoot next year, and it could be even bloodier than his divisive Hateful Eight if the subject matter is any indication. Hold on to your stomachs, the provacateur will next be tackling the Manson murders.

While this seemingly won't appease anyone put off by Hateful's gruesome antics, the potential for something great is there and Tarantino reportedly does have a unique take on the material yet to be revealed. Per his previous comments, this looks to be his penultimate film, but I'm guessing that that's actually as likely as that "unique take" being a tamer vision regarding onscreen bloodshed. My first guess is that like Inglourious Basterds before it, Tarantino will be doing a bit of revisionist history with the details of Charles Manson's enacted violence.

Casting is already promising some major talent, with reportedly approached stars including Brad Pitt, »
