Tribeca Film Festival Review: Why Marshall Curry's 'Point and Shoot' Is Due For a Hollywood Remake

21 April 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the wake of "Point and Shoot," the latest documentary by Marshall Curry, the comparison that kept barging its way into my mind was with Darren Aronofsky. No, the two filmmakers have nothing in common stylistically; one works in fiction, the other in non-; one makes $150-million biblical epics while the other performs miracles with public television money. But the thing they share -- the engine of their filmmaking, in fact -- is an obsession with obsession. In Aronofky's case, this has channeled its way through ballet, math and drug addiction ("Black Swan," "Pi," "Requiem for a Dream"). In Curry's films, which always have had strong storylines anyway, the aspect of obsession is more nuanced, and yet an essential element in what has drawn the director to his subjects: In "Streetfight," the impossibly righteous-cum-personal crusade of a political neophyte (Corey Booker) against the thuggish, entrenched mayor of Newark N.J. »

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Ballet 422’

20 April 2014 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director Jody Lee Lipes delivers an exhilarating third feature with “Ballet 422,” tracing the two-month creation of a new work by New York City Ballet dancer/choreographer Justin Peck. Sampling various stages of the process from initial conception through rehearsals to premiere performance, the documentary moves with the same fluidity that characterizes Peck’s choreography. Himself a noted cinematographer, Lipes captures the dancers, musicians, costumers and lighting designers from a variety of angles within the larger canvas, always suggesting kinetic movement continuing beyond the frame. A delight for balletophiles, the film reps a beautifully crafted entree into the intricacies of collective endeavor.

Lipes makes films about artists at work (“Brock Enright: Good Times Will Never Be the Same,” “NY Export: Opus Jazz,”), and “Ballet 422” focuses on the 25-year-old Peck as he conceives and shapes his third choreographed piece for Nycb, “Paz de la Jolla.” Expectations run high, given the »

Tribeca 2014: ‘Traitors’ is a precisely paced, carefully crafted debut that explodes with energy and confidence

20 April 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Traitors

Written and directed by Sean Gullette

Morocco, 2013

An SUV drives across the Moroccan border, packed with drugs hidden from plain view. Two girls, Malika (Chimae Ben Acha) and Amal (Soufia Issami), smuggle the drugs across terrorist lines with little to lose. Malika, the newest recruit, is nervous but shows no sign of worry with her deadpan looks. Amal, although experienced in the trafficking game, has a poor poker face. With every passing mile, Amal looks at Malika with a profound sense of caution. Malika, on the other hand, approaches each mile with a sharp sense of focus. She just wants to finish the job and get back to her normal life. Whether she can get back to her life, and avoid the backlash of her boss Samir (Mourade Zeguendi), is another question. But it’s a question she’s willing to fight for. After a few tension-filled moments, Amal »

15 Widely Released 2010 Movies We Bet You Won't Recognize

18 April 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If I asked you what job you had four years ago, you could probably tell me. Hell, you could probably tell me who you were dating/ married to, what kind of dog you had and what kind of car you drove too. These basic facts are burned into your brain, but what about the most important things? What about all the movies you saw and all the ones that obsessively advertised at you but didn.t earn your business? Could you remember all of them? Luckily, you don.t need to speculate. The heroes here at Cinema Blend have devised a quiz to help you figure out just how many movies you remember from four years ago. As a reminder, four years ago was 2010, a perfectly passable twelve month chunk that gave us such favorites as Toy Story 3, Black Swan, The King.s Speech, The Social Network and my »

Tribeca Exclusive: Dancing Gets Crispy In Clip From Documentary 'Ballet 422'

16 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Darren Aronofsky provided audiences with a nightmarish vision of what it means to be dancer in "Black Swan," in real life, ballet is a mix of collaboration, dedication and lots of sweat. And viewers will see all of that come together in the documentary "Ballet 422," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. Directed by Jody Lee Lipes (who was the Dp on Playlist fave "Martha Marcy May Marlene"), the film follows up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck — from the first rehearsal to world premiere — as he collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create the latest New York City Ballet production. And as you'll see in this exclusive clip, even in the rehearsal process, early signs of magic can be found. "Ballet 422" premieres at Tribeca on Saturday, April 19th at 9 Pm at Sva Theatre 1.

Timeless Clothing: Michael Wilkinson talks about Noah

16 April 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Michael Wilkinson about weaving a new adaptation of an epic Biblical story…

“There was an opening in my schedule,” recalls Michael Wilkinson who had completed the costume designs for Man of Steel (2013) when an opportunity arose to work on Noah (2014) helmed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan).  “My agents introduced me to Darren who was looking for someone to help design this epic movie.  I had a series of Skype interviews, was awarded the job and headed over to New York to work with him.”  The native of Australia remarks, “I always like to have images in front of me when I’m meeting a director.  Other costume designers do things differently.  For me, it’s all about beginning to see if there’s a dialogue that flows between the two parties.  Even if I show images that are wildly different from what the director was thinking »

Baz Luhrmann May Tackle Kung Fu

13 April 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Baz Luhrmann has hopped between genres in his career, though he’s usually maintained some blend of period romance and music for the likes of Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Australia and last year’s The Great Gatsby. But if he takes on a new job for Legendary Pictures, we could be in for a very different Luhrmann movie, as he’s in talks to make Kung Fu.Legendary has been trying to turn the 1970s David Carradine-starring show into a film for years now. When it last kicked our news radar, word was that Bill Paxton might be picking up the megaphone to get it made. It would seem that that didn’t work out and now Luhrmann is considering the idea. The Hollywood Reporter cautions that it’s unclear how far the talks have progressed: for all we know, Luhrmann is simply chewing over the notion.If he does go ahead, »

Baz Luhrmann in talks for Kung Fu remake

13 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Baz Luhrmann – director of Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rogue! and The Great Gatsby – has entered talks with Legendary Pictures with regards to helming the upcoming big screen adaptation of the classic 1970s TV series Kung Fu. Should he finalise a deal, it’s said he’ll also rewrite the script, which has been penned by John McLaughlin (Black Swan).

Premiering in 1972 with a full length TV movie, Kung Fu starred David Carradine (Kill Bill) as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk travelling through the American Old West in search of his half brother. The series ran until 1975, with a total of 63 episodes, and was followed by the TV features Kung Fu: The Movie (1986) and Kung Fu: The Next Generation (1987), along with a spin-off series entitled Kung Fu: The Legend Continues between 1993 and 1997.

Baz Luhrmann Eyes Big Screen Remake of 'Kung Fu'

12 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a curious combination as THR reports Baz Luhrmann of all people is in talks to direct Kung Fu for Legendary Pictures. The project is a big-screen adaptation of the 1970s martial arts Western television show that starred David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk who came to the American West in search of his half brother. The show featured flashbacks to Caine's training as a teen in which his master called him "young grasshopper." THR reports a source saying the current script, written by John McLaughlin (Black Swan), switches the action to China and finds Caine in search of his father -- at one point ending up in a prison where he must fight to survive. Cory Goodman (Priest) and Rich Wilkes (xXx) have written previous drafts of the screenplay and Bill Paxton was, at one time, attached to direct back in 2011. Luhrmann will do »

Baz Luhrmann in talks to helm 'Kung Fu'

12 April 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Washington, Apr 12: Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct 'Kung Fu', Legendary Pictures' big-screen adaptation of the 1970s martial arts Western television show, it has been revealed.

It is unclear how far along the talks are. Legendary had no comment, but the company is beginning to ramp up its Chinese-centric projects again (Yimou Zhang is in talks to revive the company's adventure movie The Great Wall) and Kung Fu has Chinese roots.

If a deal is made, Luhrmann would first do a rewrite on the script before proceeding.

The current script is by Black Swan scribe John McLaughlin.

Guardians of the Galaxy Grrl Fight, Bay Talks Transformers 4, King Arthur Gets a Date, Allegiant Split, Baz Fu

12 April 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Marvel In less than four months, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will make a big about-face from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, its most grounded superhero property, to its first non-Avengers experiment, the out-of-this world space adventure Guardians of the Galaxy. Despite its imminent (in cinematic terms) arrival in theaters, director James Gunn (Super) has just gone back into production to film additional footage for the movie. Actress Zoe Saldana, who plays the green-skinned Guardian Gamora, revealed the news when she tweeted a photo (above) of herself squaring off against co-star Karen Gillan, who plays the villainous Nebula, with the caption: "@KarenGillan2 and I rehearsing our extended fight scene! #gamora and #nebula r gonna kick e\o's butts! #Gotg."

One of the big questions about Guardians of the Galaxy has been how or if the movie will connect with the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper. Speculation that it would tie in to »

Fox Searchlight Sets Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s ‘Birdman’ For October 17 Bow

11 April 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: While there has been speculation that Fox Searchlight and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu would race to make the Cannes Film Festival, Fox Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula tells Deadline that the film will open Friday, October 17. It won’t complete post production until late May or early June, meaning that it will be eyeing fall festivals. This is his first black comedy, but Inarritu’s past films have been magnets for festivals, and he should have several choices for a festival that is compatible with the opening of Birdman, which Searchlight made with New Regency and Worldview Entertainment. Searchlight controls worldwide distribution and will release it overseas in January. So start the jockeying, Toronto, Telluride and Venice. “It’s the heart of the fall, and a great time historically for us with films like Sideways, 12 Years A Slave, and historically Slumdog Millionaire and Black Swan,” Gilula told me. “We’ve »

'The Great Gatsby' Director Baz Luhrmann Eyes 'Kung Fu' Adaptation

11 April 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one week after we reported that Universal Pictures and Legendary are moving forward with their Kung Fu TV series adaptation, Baz Luhrmann has entered talks to direct.

If a deal is made, his first order of business will be to rewrite the script, which was most recently worked on by Rich Wilkes (xXx, Marvel's Iron Fist), although it isn't clear how far along the negotiations are at this stage. Bill Paxton was once attached to direct back in October 2011. Other writers who have worked on the script include John J. McLaughlin (Black Swan) and Cory Goodman (Priest, Apollo 18).

The original Kung Fu TV series starred David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk who roams the countryside of America, searching for his long lost half-brother. The show, which aired from 1972 to 1975 on ABC, featured flashbacks to his days in training, where he was called "young grasshopper by his master, »

Milena Markovna (Mila) Kunis and Christopher Ashton Kutcher - Choosing the Baby Name

9 April 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Mila Kunis (real name Milena Markovna Kunis) and Christopher Ashton Kutcher are having a baby and getting married, what will they name the little one? Pregnant Mila moved from the Soviet Union to Los Angeles with her family when she was seven years old and that raises the possibility they might use a Russian name somewhere in the baby's name, or they might have asked Ashton's Iowa parents for advice. They flew to Ashton Kutcher's family to show off her growing baby bump last month once it was revealed Mila was pregnant. A source told UsMagazine.com that the 'Two and a Half Men' actor, 36, and the 'Black Swan' star, 30, stayed with his mother Diane Finnegan Kutcher. They were also spotted shopping at Target and had dinner at Granite City restaurant with his family during their brief visit. A source previously revealed the former 'That »
