Imagine Confirms Raine Group Investment

8 February 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine Entertainment has confirmed that it has a new financial backer, the Raine Group.

Variety first broke the news that the merchant bank was putting more than $100 million into the production company behind “Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind,” and “The Da Vinci Code.” Imagine did not confirm the size of the investment beyond dubbing it “significant.”

Imagine is headed up by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard. The investment comes as other top-shelf production companies, among them Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners, are on the prowl for new financial partners who will give them the capital to compete in a changing movie and media business.

“The ways in which content is created and consumed are transforming faster than ever before, expanding in directions that hadn’t been conceived even a few years ago,” Grazer said in a statement. “The opportunity to extend Imagine’s reach across this expanding landscape is a driving force for us. »

6 February 2016 3:07 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'A Beautiful Mind' with Russell Crowe. '31 Days of Oscar' on TCM: 'The Wind and the Lion,' 'The Man Who Would Be King' Turner Classic Movies' “31 Days of Oscar” continues on Saturday, Feb. 6, '16, with more recent fare – as in, several films released in the last four decades. Among these are The Wind and the Lion, The Man Who Would Be King, A Beautiful Mind, Swing Shift, and Broadcast News. John Milius' The Wind and the Lion and John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King are both 1975 releases featuring “Westerners” (i.e., white people) stranded in “exotic” and potentially dangerous locales (i.e., places inhabited by dark-skinned non-Christians) in the distant past: the former in early 20th century Morocco; the latter in a remote region in colonial India in the late 19th century. (That particular area, Kafiristan, is located in today's Afghanistan.) The thematic similarities between the two films end there, »

Paris’ The Louvre: 120 Productions in 2015

3 February 2016 9:43 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Child of the French Revolution, the Louvre is considered to be the world’s first museum, intimately linked to the spirit of the Enlightenment.

Housing works that are over 7,000 years old, the museum also has a markedly modern spirit, epitomized by the glass pyramid designed by I.M. Pei, inaugurated in 1989, that had an immediate impact on the number of visitors, which were previously one-to-two million visitors per year and in 2015 stood at 8.7 million.

Cinema has played an important image in promoting the image of the Louvre around the world, made evident after “The Da Vinci Code” lensed in the museum in 2005.

In 2008, the museum’s management board decided to make the museum much more film-friendly and created a special unit dedicated to managing productions inside and outside the museum, which is run by Joelle Cinq-Fraix.

Before 2008, on average the Louvre hosted one feature film every two years, but since »

Raine Group to Invest $100 Million-Plus in Imagine, Partners Eye Expansion (Exclusive)

28 January 2016 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Imagine Entertainment, the production powerhouse led by longtime partners Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, is poised for a significant expansion, powered by a $100 million-plus investment from the Raine Group under a new partnership agreement, according to multiple sources familiar with the impending deal.

The arrangement anticipates building Imagine into a major media player with other investors as part of the transaction, said two individuals familiar with the pact. The deal has yet to be signed but is just days away from being finalized.

Raine, the 6-year-old New York merchant bank, has ready access to capital and myriad potential partners. While the new allies have no current acquisition targets, they will scout out other media assets for acquisition on an opportunistic basis. In the near term, the $100 million infusion will help Imagine generate new film and television projects.

The new partnership will leave producer Grazer, 64, and director Howard, 61, atop the company they founded 30 years ago, »

Mary Magdalene Film Sets Up Shop At Universal, The King’s Speech Producers Attached

21 January 2016 1:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal has ordered a live-action Mary Magdalene movie for a release in 2017 in partnership with See-Saw Films. Currently without an official title, the religious drama will be helmed by Garth Davis working from a script penned by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett.

Often referred to as Mary of Magdala or simply The Magdalene across the four Christian gospels, Mary Magdalene has been portrayed by Barbara Hershey and, more recently, by Spectre star Monica Bellucci in Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ. However, news of Universal and See-Saw’s biblical drama taking shape is the first sign that the celebrated and somewhat controversial figure will headline her own film.

No word yet on which actress will take on the title role, but we do know that Iain Canning and Emile Sherman are on board to produce, while Universal brass Robert Walak and Peter Kujawski offered a statement to Deadline in light of the announcement. »

Dolby Laboratories is quick to the table with the burgeoning drive toward 4K Ultra HD, the next-generation viewing format with four times the resolution of HD and the much-ballyhooed high dynamic range (Hdr), which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays.

The company announced deals at CES with Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures and MGM to enhance their Ultra HD releases.

The company and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (Sphe) on Jan. 6 announced a collaboration to release Sphe titles in Dolby Atmos over the coming years, including Sphe’s first films to be released in the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc format. Dolby Atmos, according to a press release, “delivers captivating audio that places and moves specific sounds anywhere in the room, including overhead, to bring entertainment alive all around the audience.”
