Altice, Patrick Drahi’s global telco and communications group, is set to co-finance Agnes Jaoui’s “Place Publique,” the company’s first investment in a feature film.
“Place Publique” is written by Jaoui (pictured at Cannes this year, where she sat on the festival’s official jury) and her regular co-author Jean-Pierre Bacri, who is also the film’s protagonist. The two have collaborated, both before and behind the camera, on a flurry of movies that have become cult hits, notably “The Taste of Others.”
Bacri stars as Castro, a once-famous TV host who gets together with old friends, including his ex-wife, at a housewarming party on the outskirts of Paris. Over the course of the party, it becomes obvious that success has changed Castro, who used to share the idealistic political views of his former wife »

When we think of pretty packaging of DVD/Blu-ray releases, the usual disc-pimping suspects pop up: Arrow, Cj-Entertainment, Criterion (when so minded), Anime Limited, Eureka, Funimation, Wild Side Video, Sentai Filmworks... Curzon Arificial Eye will generally not be in that shortlist, though that's not a slur on their ability as a distributor. Not unlike the British Film Institute, they have a very impressive catalogue with plenty of certified classics in it, and their releases are often perfectly decent, if not very flashy. That goes for their boxsets too. But even they clearly felt inspired when designing a boxset for Andrei Tarkovsky's films. Called "The Deluxe Collection", the limited (and numbered) set is meant as a companion piece to the "Sculpting Time" retrospective, a touring programme which...

This French disc release of the Jacques Tourneur classic gets everything right — including both versions in picture perfect transfers. Devil debunker Dana Andrews locks horns with Niall MacGinnis, a necromancer “who has decoded the Old Book” and can summon a fire & brimstone monster from Hell, no election fraud necessary. Even fans that hate ghost stories love this one — it’s a truly creepy, intelligent highlight of the horror genre.

Hoda Kotb was ready to become a mom.
The Today co-anchor announced she adopted a daughter, Haley Joy, on Tuesday morning and her co-host, Matt Lauer, pointed out on-air all the adorable ways Kotb hinted at this huge change in her life.
“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings," she shared on Instagram last week, along with a series of inspirational quotes following it.
“If not now…then when?” another read.
“For all the things my hands have held the best by far is you,” one sweet post on Friday said.
Kotb is known to traditionally post quotes on her social account but her latest, as Lauer said, appeared as though she was “trying to tell us something.”
Kotb then spoke to the morning show team via the »
Nowave was created by Bérangère Dastarac 18 months ago with the idea to showcase non-mainstream auteur films, genre movies and shorts, many of which have played festivals and have not been released in theaters.
“We’re aiming to give more visibility to great films that have gone unnoticed because they got lost in the flood of theatrical releases,” said Dastarac, who added that the service’s model was particularly attractif to right-holders as it offers a 50/50 revenue sharing.
Dastarac, who produced several films including “Winter of Discontent” and “Sing Freedom,” has enlisted several industry players and journalists to curate selection of films by theme in order to maximize content editorialization and attract younger audiences, particularly millennials.
For instance, Nowave just featured a curation focusing on Pinku movies, »
