Dutch rebate driving up production

24 January 2015 2:45 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Speaking in Rotterdam, Netherlands Film Fund director Doreen Boonekamp has delivered an upbeat assessment of the state of the Dutch film industry.

Boonekamp has also revealed details of how the country’s new cash rebate system, introduced last year, is driving up production levels.

Some €78m was spent on Dutch production last year, a considerable hike on production investment in 2013, which was around €14m less.

Boonekamp said, as a result of the new incentive, “a lot of post production work is going back to the Netherlands”.

The incentive offers a cash rebate of 30% on the eligible Dutch spend.

Since the incentive was launched in June 2014, 51 film projects have received a total of €13.6m from the scheme.

These have included high profile projects such as Mike van Diem’s De Surprise, Alex van Warmerdam’s Schneider vs. Bax, Polish feature Math Sucks, Austrian movie The Night Of A Thousand Hours, and Roel Reiné’s epic seafaring yarn Michiel de Ruyter »

He says in his lawsuit his song was enhanced in Zimmer's studio. Friedman claims it's no coincidence that in 2013 Zimmer's signature song in "12 Years" was eerily similar to his tune. »

The Royals: guaranteed to be the trashiest thing on TV

21 January 2015 5:52 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Liz Hurley plays the Queen! Joan Collins plays the Queen Mum! What’s not to love about the E!’s new drama about a British royal family?

Amid all its troubled antiheroes and fatalistic gunplay, the golden age of television has been desperately short of one thing: trash. Not your common or garden, lowest common denominator, mass market, light entertainment crap – switch on your TV after 5pm on any given Saturday and you’ll practically drown in the stuff – but knowing, high-drama, campy trash. Trash such as Footballers’ Wives and Desperate Housewives.

We’ve come close – Scandal is clearly preposterous but takes itself slightly too seriously, and House of Cards perpetually seems seconds away from turning into a full-scale Frankie Howerd parody of itself – but it has always been hard to shake the feeling that most modern showrunners have been too busy eyeing up prestige to fully commit to trash. »

Bluray Review: Annabelle

20 January 2015 7:18 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The success of 2013’s James Wan-directed haunted family film The Conjuring scored big at not only the box office, but with genre films all across the boards. It brought old school terror back in a big way, with its focus being more based on setting a tone and allowing it grow more unsettling as the film went on. With as big of a hit as it became, sequels, spin-offs and god knows what else were instantly green-lit, and the first of those films to have been given the spin-off treatment was Annabelle, a prequel based on a doll that had a few minutes of screen time in The Conjuring, yet was something that audiences latched onto immediately (when WB was promoting The Conjuring, a lot of us writers were sent Annabelle dolls as promotional materials and let me tell ya, my kids are still mad at WB for that »

Where Are They Now? The Cast of Desperate Housewives

16 January 2015 6:10 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It has been almost three years since the ABC drama Desperate Housewives ended its 8 year run. The show started out hot and became one of the most popular shows of the 2004-2005 season. Then came the second season backlash and a crazy storyline involving a woman locking her son in a basement. The series would be rated as one of the 20 most watched show for the first six seasons it was on the air (reaching as high as 4th during the first and second season) and would rate as number 37 during its final year on television.  Viewers were treated to a grocery store shooting, a tornado destroying the neighborhood, and so many deaths you began to wonder why anyone would want to live on Wisteria Lane.  By the time season 8 had arrived, most of the fans had already given up on the show. So what have the housewives…

New UK trailer for Cake starring Jennifer Aniston

16 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer has been released for Daniel Barnz’s drama Cake which stars Jennifer Aniston in a critically-acclaimed performance as a sarcastic chronic pain sufferer. You can check it out below after the official synopsis…

Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She’s no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire’s anger seethes out of her  with nearly every interaction. She has driven away her husband, her friends— even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out.

The only one left in Claire’s otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper- cum-caretaker, Silvana (Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss’ need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina  (Academy Award »

Series co-writer/director David Lynch and Showtime answered one big question by revealing that Kyle MacLachlan will once again step into the shoes of FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper. Lynch even tweeted a new photo of MacLachlan as Agent Cooper holding a “damn fine” cup of coffee. Here’s the official press release (via Collider) and photo (via David Lynch):

Parks and Recreation Season Premiere Review: “2017/Ron & Jammy” (Season 7, Episode 1&2)

13 January 2015 7:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Time jumps are tricky. They’re the sort of plot device that can run the risk of feeling gimmicky if not utterly integral to the immediate story being told. Some shows have made it feel reinvigorated (Desperate Housewives) and some felt like it was an afterthought (Weeds). The first two episodes of the seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation falls somewhere in between. It doesn’t lose anything of substantial value transitioning forward three years, but it doesn’t exactly gain anything, either.

So, it’s 2017. Gryzzl has invaded Pawnee and everyone has silly never-gonna-happen futuristic iPads and most of the main cast has moved on. Tom is a self-described mogul, Donna’s real estate business is booming, April and Andy are freaking out about becoming totally ordinary, and Leslie is obsessing over a new park. Okay, not everyone’s moved on, exactly. Despite the time jump, and »
