Cannes Winning Best Actor and Lanthimos' Quirky 'Family' Thriller Academy Award Chances?

20 June 2017 7:38 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'120 Beats per Minute' trailer: Robin Campillo's AIDS movie features plenty of drama and a clear sociopolitical message. AIDS drama makes Pedro Almodóvar cry – but will Academy members tear up? (See previous post re: Cannes-Oscar connection.) In case France submits it to the 2018 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, screenwriter-director Robin Campillo's AIDS drama 120 Beats per Minute / 120 battements par minute, about the Paris Act Up chapter in the early 1990s, could quite possibly land a nomination. The Grand Prix (Cannes' second prize), international film critics' Fipresci prize, and Queer Palm winner offers a couple of key ingredients that, despite its gay sex scenes, should please a not insignificant segment of the Academy membership: emotionalism and a clear sociopolitical message. When discussing the film after the presentation of the Palme d'Or, Pedro Almodóvar (and, reportedly, jury member Jessica Chastain) broke into tears. Some believed, in fact, that 120 Beats per Minute »

Sydney 2017: In The Fade review: Dir. Fatih Akin (2017)

16 June 2017 11:51 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In The Fade review: Diane Kruger leads the cast of this German-language feature from director Fatih Akin, a film that is part-courtroom drama, part revenge-thriller, all set around a family tragedy, a bombing in central Hamburg.

In The Fade review by Paul Heath, May 2017.

In The Fade review

The Family, Justice, and The Sea are the titles give to the three very distinct parts of this film, each of them kicking off with amateur video footage setting the scene. The first opens in what appears to be in a prison with one of the inmates dressed in a white tuxedo. This is Nuri (Numan Acar), a German-Turkish man who is about to marry his bride, Diane Kruger’s Katja, a tattooed hipster waiting for him in the visitor’s room. Fast-forward a couple of years’ post title card and we’re in the family home, the couple now with child, »

What do “The Aviator,” “Inglourious Basterds” and “The Matrix” all have in common? Jaw-dropping reflection shots.

The Auteur Journal has made a beautiful new supercut (via Film School Rejects) that brings together 37 of the best mirror shots in cinema. Filmmakers behind the camera for these images include Martin Scorsese, Danny Boyle, Quentin Tarantino, Jean-Luc Godard, Christian Petzold, the Wachowskis, Christopher Nolan, the Dardenne brothers and more.

A mirror shot is never just a mirror shot, and each image speaks volumes to the respective movie’s themes. The shot from “Phoenix,” embedded below, splits Nina Hoss’ reflection between two shards of glass, an image that speaks directly to her character’s double identity. Scorsese uses the reflection of an airplane to distort the features of Leonardo Dicaprio’s Howard Hughs, a fun house mirror effect that speaks »

Logan’s James Mangold to direct Disorder remake

10 June 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh off the critical and commercial success of the X-Men movie Logan, director James Mangold has found his next project, with Deadline reporting that he is set to helm an English-language remake of Alice Winocour’s Fresh-Belgian thriller Disorder, which starred Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone) and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds).

The remake has been penned by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell or High Water) and is said to be seen as a potential franchise starter. Sheridan is going to do another pass on the script with Mangold’s input, and Sony and producers Escape Artists are looking to fast track the project into production.

The synopsis for the original Disorder reads: “Vincent, a French Special Forces soldier just back from Afghanistan, is suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder. He is hired to ensure the security of Jessie, the wife of a rich Lebanese businessman at their luxurious villa, “Maryland”. As »

Logan's James Mangold signs up for Disorder

7 June 2017 5:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Jun 8, 2017

Fresh off the success of Logan, James Mangold has lined up another action movie called Disorder, a remake of a French film.

James Mangold has directed his fair share of action movies, but after helming the critically acclaimed and box office winning Logan, the industry is likely taking even a greater interest in what he does next. Mangold had been formulating ideas for an X-23 movie starring Dafne Keen, but that may have to wait for at least a little while, as he has lined up a new project with Sony.

As reported by Variety, Sony has tapped Mangold to direct a remake of the French action movie, Disorder. Obviously a major get for Sony, the movie is of additional interest for action aficionados since it is written by Taylor Sheridan, who penned the Oscar nominated script for Hell Or High Water.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Crash Landing: Why Ridley Scott’s Box-Office Blunder Could Put The Series in Jeopardy

6 June 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After eight films over nearly four decades, Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” may be proof positive that the time for this franchise has passed. Ridley Scott plans at least two more sequels to the “Prometheus” portion of the “Alien” saga, but current returns make that look like a risky proposition.

Alien: Covenant” will be one of the franchise’s lowest-grossing entries, second only to 2007’s “Aliens Vs. Predator – Requiem,” which made $52 million domestic in adjusted numbers. Three weeks in, “Alien: Covenant” is at $67 million domestic against a $97 million budget; after Japan and China open, expect it to hit about $300 million worldwide, which means theatrical won’t be enough for it to break even.

Reviews weren’t great for “Alien: Covenant,” but neither were reviews for 2012’s “Prometheus” — Scott’s return to the series after directing “Alien” in 1979 — and that one made over $400 million worldwide. In adjusted numbers,”Prometheus” earned about »

‘War Machine’ Review (Netflix Original)

27 May 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Hayes, Keith StanfieldAnthony Michael HallTopher Grace, Meg Tilly | Written and Directed by David Michôd

The year is 2010. General Glen McMahon (Brad Pitt) is tasked by a committee of civilian leaders with fixing the mess in Afghanistan. What this actually entails is open to debate. Does it mean winning the hearts and minds of the local populous? Or winning the war against the Taliban? McMahon reckons they’re the same thing.

He and his ego-stroking team take a tour of the country, to see the meagre and underfunded efforts being made by the allies to make good on their promise of roads, schools, democracy, and all that good stuff. McMahon finds a desert of broken dreams.

He requests forty thousand extra troops, so that he might exorcise Helmand Province of its elusive evil. In return he gets minimal reinforcements, »

Diane Kruger atop the Majestic Hotel in Cannes Photo: Kering Women in Motion

She could be compared to a cross between Grace Kelly and Carole Lombard. Diane Kruger, 38, who won best actress at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, has gone from being a top model to respected actress in a relatively short time. She intersperses big budget outings such as Troy and Inglourious Basterds with European films among them Alice Winocour’s Disorder; as Marie Antoinette in Benoit Jacquot’s Farewell, My Queen and Fabienne Berthaud’s Sky, about a contemporary French woman who strikes out on her own in the American West. She was a mainstay for two seasons in the American remake of the Scandi-noir series The Bridge, transposed to the border between the Us and Mexico.

Diane Kruger: ‘I’ve Never Been Paid as Much as a Male Costar in the U.S.’

24 May 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Diane Kruger, who’s at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Fatih Akin’s long-gestated, competition title “In the Fade” (Aus dem Nichts), discussed gender parity, the contemporary resonance of Akin’s film, and her work with female filmmakers and Quentin Tarantino during Variety and Kering’s Women in Motion talk on Wednesday.

Kruger said she’s thankful that fellow actresses like Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain have been vocal about eradicating the gender pay gap in Hollywood.

“I’ve certainly (had) the experience that if I speak up and I don’t sugarcoat things, that people think, ‘Oh you’re harsh or you’re a bitch,’ and men would be treated as great artists and passionate about their work,” she said.

Kruger said women need to demand equal pay, as difficult as it may be.

“I’ve certainly never been paid as much as a male costar in the United States. »

Homegrown German Films Makes Global Showing

19 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While German-language films screening at this year’s Cannes Film Festival are scant in number, German talent and market titles nevertheless offer a glimpse of current and upcoming productions, ranging in subject matter from prehistoric adventure and Nazi-era intrigue to modern day terrorism and romance in the face of sorrow.

This year’s crop of local productions follows a standout year for German films, which not only made an impressive showing on the international festival circuit but also at both the domestic and international box office. Maren Ade’s Oscar-nominated “Toni Erdmann,” a bittersweet comedy about an aging father trying to reconnect with his distant, workaholic daughter, enjoyed a stellar year, winning a slew of international prizes, including five European Film Awards, sweeping this year’s German Film Awards, and leading to Ade’s selection for this year’s Cannes competition jury.

Brad Pitt made a rare late night appearance on Tuesday’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert, joining the host for another hilarious installment of his “Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars” segment.

After joking that he hadn’t “been out in a while,” Pitt laid back on the blanket with Colbert as they asked each other some of life’s deepest questions.

“Do you think mathematics are the underlying structure of the universe, or did we just invent it?” the actor pondered.

“I’m not sure if numbers are the underlying reality, but one thing is absolutely true: You’re a solid eight,” Colbert replied.

Brad Pitt Wants Freedom in New Trailer for David Michôd’s ‘War Machine’

11 May 2017 4:46 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In July of 2010, an article appeared in Rolling Stone that effectively ended the military career of United States Army General Stanley McChrystal, the commanding general in Afghanistan. The article found McChrystal and his staff critical of then President Barack Obama and caused a media frenzy for a solid week as pundits debated whether or not McChrystal acted unprofessionally. McChrystal tendered his resignation one day after the article was released online, the author of the article — the late Michael Hastings — expanded it into a book, The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan, and the rest is history. And now it’s entertainment, too.

Netflix, who may or may not make real movies depending on who you ask at Cannes, will release War Machine later this month. Animal Kingdom director David Michôd helms this satire, presented as fictionalized take on McChrystal and his unconventional tactics. »

The 25 greatest movies about making movies

3 May 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison May 19, 2017

From the currently playing Their Finest to the likes of Bowfinger and Boogie Nights, we salute the movies about making movies...

If you haven't caught up yet, Their Finest is currently playing in UK cinemas and it's a gorgeous little love letter to perseverance through storytelling, set against the backdrop of a film production office at the British Ministry of Information during the Second World War. Based on Lissa Evans' novel, Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy play characters whose access to the film industry has been contingent on the global crisis that takes other young men away from such trifling matters, and it's a real joy to watch.

Among other things, the film got us thinking about other films about making films. We're not talking about documentaries, even though Hearts Of Darkness, the documentary about the making of Apocalypse Now, may be the greatest film about »
