If you’ve seen the highest-grossing movie in Canadian history, 2006’s bilingual comedy Bon Cop Bad Cop, chances are you live in Quebec where the film earned more than $11-million of its $12.5-million domestic take, and where Canadian films do much better than they do in the rest of the country.

As the film’s sequel, Bon Cop Bad Cop 2, hits theatres this month, star Colm Feore makes an impassioned case for Anglo-Canadians to jump on board.

“What many Canadians don’t understand is that they’ve already paid for this movie, they’ve already bought a ticket,” Feore argues enthusiastically over the phone from Montreal where he and his Bon Cop co-star,

This time around, the pair have to take on a car theft ring, that looks like it'll take them to new territories. We can't wait to see how it all plays out when Bon Cop Bad Cop 2 hits theatres on May 12th. Watch our interview with stars Feore and Huard below,

In the highly anticipated sequel, David Bouchard (Patrick Huard) and Martin Ward (Colm Feore) are once again forced to work together. This time, the Quebec investigator is under Ward’s command, since Ward is now a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. The unlikely duo has the mission of dismantling a stolen car ring, which in fact fronts for something much, much more sinister. Through their experiences, Bouchard and Ward discover that the enemies are not always whom you think. They also realize that as time goes by, some things change, while others stay exactly the same.

Quebec films dominate Genie noms

Quebec films dominate Genie noms
TORONTO -- Quebec films dominated nearly all the major categories as nominations for the Genies, Canada's top film honors, were unveiled Tuesday in Toronto.

In the best picture competiton, Ivan Reitman-produced Trailer Park Boys: The Movie was the lone English-language Canadian entry. It will face off against four Quebecois films: Erik Canuel's Bon Cop, Bad Cop, Charles Biname's Maurice Richard/The Rocket, Jean-Francois Pouliot's Guide De La Petite Vengeance and Robert Favreau's Un Dimanche A Kigali.

The same quartet of French-language filmmakers surfaced again in the best director category, an all-Quebecois affair rounded out by La Vie Secrete Des Gens Heureux helmer Stephane Lapointe.

"Maurice Richard/The Rocket," a French-language drama about the legendary hockey player, led the Genies field with 13 nominations, followed by bilingual buddy comedy Bon Cop, Bad Cop with 10 nominations.

Terry Gilliam's Tideland, a British-Canadian co-production, grabbed five craft nominations and a best actress nod for Jodelle Ferland, while Julia Kwan's Eve and the Fire Horse earned a best supporting actress nomination for Vivian Wu and a best supporting actor nomination for Lester Chit-Man Chan. Otherwise, English-language Canadian movies, which garner a paltry 1% of cinema screen-time nationwide, look set to play second fiddle to their French-language counterparts when the Genies are handed out next month. Quebec films similarly overshadow the acting categories, with Colm Feore (Bon Cop) going up against Roy Dupuis (Maurice Richard), Belgian actor Olivier Gourmet (Congorama), Patrick Huard (Bon Cop) and Luc Picard (Un Dimanche A Kigali) in the best actor competition.

In the best actress category, Sigourney Weaver, nominated for her role in Snow Cake, will challenge Julie Le Breton (Maurice Richard), Fatou N'Diaye (Un Dimanche A Kigali), veteran Quebec star Ginette Reno (Le Secret De Ma Mere) and Jodelle Ferland (Tideland).

The Genie nominations, which came on the second day of Canada's actors strike, were announced at a Toronto press conference with no nominated directors or actors on hand for the assembled media.

Toronto Top 10 draws criticism

Toronto Top 10 draws criticism
TORONTO -- The Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday stirred up controversy by releasing a Top 10 list of Canadian movies for 2006 that left out this year's top two domestic boxoffice earners.

The 2006 list, voted on by selected Canadian filmmakers, producers and critics, includes Mike Clattenburg's Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, a popcorn comedy executive produced by Ivan Reitman about ex-convicts in a Halifax trailer park complex.

The 2006 list also includes Sarah Polley's Away From Her, Zacharias Kunuk and Norman Cohn's The Journals of Knud Rasmussen, which opened the 2006 Toronto festival, and Jennifer Baichwal's Manufactured Landscapes, a feature-length documentary.

But this year's kudos ignored Erik Canuel's Bon Cop, Bad Cop, a bilingual buddy movie that earlier this year became the highest-ever Canadian boxoffice earner. Also passed over was the year's second-highest grosser, Christophe Gans' video game-inspired horror pic Silent Hill, a Canada/France co-production shot in Ontario and produced by Don Carmody and Samuel Hadida.

Toronto-based Carmody said leaving his own film and Bon Cop, Bad Cop off the 2006 Top 10 showed that the 10-member jury was out of step with the tastes of ordinary Canadian cinemagoers.
