Todd Haynes Goes Back in Time in First Trailer for ‘Wonderstruck’

20 July 2017 2:09 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Todd Haynes is back with Wonderstruck, an adaptation of the book by Brian Selznick. The film follows two children in different eras — 12-year-old Ben (Oakes Fegley), living in 1977, and Rose (Millicent Simmonds), a deaf girl living in 1927, with the later half of the film focusing on Rose presented as “a silent film in both a nod to movie history and an aesthetic designed to capture her perspective.”

Selznick, who also wrote the source material for Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, adapts his own book for Haynes’ film. Reviewing the film at Cannes for The Film Stage, Rory O’Connor wrote, “On show here is the same love for the craft of silent filmmaking as there is for that of diorama and the strange magic of provenance”, yet also added that “these methods fail to be harnessed with any great charm within the parameters of the film itself.”

“Although almost all my films have been period films, »

Coming Distractions: Todd Haynes goes timeline-juggling in the latest trailer for Wonderstruck

20 July 2017 1:41 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Wonderstruck, a rare all-ages outing for Carol and I’m Not There director Todd Haynes, was a hit at this year’s Cannes, with our own A.A. Dowd calling it “a spectacular technical achievement.” The film’s latest trailer shows off some of that technical pizzazz, with Haynes dashing back and forth between New York in the 1920s and the 1970s at the behest of author Brian Selznick (who also penned the source material for Martin Scorsese’s 2012 Oscar-winner Hugo.)

Starring Oakes Fegley (from Pete’s Dragon) and Millicent Simmonds as a pair of kids equally enthralled by the American Museum of Natural History in two different eras (with just a hint of Julianne Moore around the edges), the trailer is more about emotions and impressions that actual plot. Still, we do get plenty of shots of the movie’s lush color palette, with the black-and-white sequences set »

San Diego Comic Con is here, and with it comes the expected players: superhero movies, blockbusters based on comic books, and much more. However, one film that seem slightly out of place on the convention floor is “Wonderstruck.” The latest from director Todd Haynes has just as much imagination as anything else at the fanboy mecca.

Based on the book by Brian Selznick (“Hugo“), and starring Oakes Fegley, Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Millicent Simmonds, the film is a wondrous tale, split between timelines, about two children longing for better circumstances.

‘Dunkirk’: How Christopher Nolan Maintained Secrecy on His Set

20 July 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few productions in the history of the movies have been as shrouded in secrecy as Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk.” While filmmakers often go to great lengths to prevent their screenplays from leaking to the public, Nolan kept the script for “Dunkirk” so guarded that even very few members of the crew ever laid eyes on it.

Of the more than 600 people who helped bring Nolan’s World War II drama to life, the 20 or so crew members on set who were allowed to read the script included the director of photography, production designer, first assistant director and property master.

“It was a lot of guessing,” said “Dunkirk” art director Stéphane Cressend, who was only allowed to read the script once, six weeks after shooting began. “This is what’s really different from all the other productions I’ve worked on, »

Julianne Moore in Wonderstruck

Todd Haynes's Wonderstruck, based on Brian Selznick's novel The Invention Of Hugo Cabret, with a screenplay by the author, has been tapped to be the Centerpiece selection of the 55th New York Film Festival. Wonderstruck stars Oakes Fegley, Millicent Simmonds and Julianne Moore with Michelle Williams.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Wonderstruck

Haynes’ film stars Julianne Moore in the story of two children — one in the 1970s, one in the 1920s — whose stories overlap on separate journeys to Manhattan. Nyff is considered a key launchpad for films that become a part of the awards-season conversation, and the high profile slot for “Wonderstruck” there could boost the title as it hits the campaign trail. Hayne’s last film, “Carol,” screened at Nyff in 2015 and was nominated for six Oscars.

Wonderstruck” is based on a 2011 novel by Brian Selznick, whose previous book, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” was the inspiration for Martin Scorsese’s 2011 movie “Hugo,” which got its first public showcase as a secret screening at Nyff that year.

The New York Film Festival, which often imports Cannes titles for its well-curated October celebration of international cinema, has revealed that New York auteur Todd Haynes’ Cannes hit “Wonderstruck” will be the October 7 Centerpiece gala of the 55th edition (September 28 – October 15). This is no surprise, as the Amazon Studios/Roadside Attractions release is scheduled for a Nyff launch-friendly October 20 release.

Jude Law Needs Fewer Soulless Blockbusters and More Iconoclasts Like Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘The Young Pope’

19 June 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jude Law, who’s always been hard to pin down, and his title role in HBO Emmy Contender “The Young Pope” is no exception. 

Bottom Line: As he embraces his mid-40s, Jude Law has morphed from British golden boy to globally bankable character actor. His range is wide, from tragic robot Gigolo Joe in Steven Spielberg’s “A.I.” to Robert Downey, Jr.’s comedy sidekick Dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” franchise. Still stunningly handsome, Law is gaining grit and gravitas as he gets older. But there’s a sense he’s still holding back.

Mary Poppins Returns director reveals why Julie Andrews isn’t making a cameo appearance

10 June 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it was reported back in August of last year that Julie Andrews was in talks to join Disney’s Mary Poppins sequel, the Oscar-winning actress opted against a cameo in 2018’s Mary Poppins Returns, with director Rob Marshall revealing to EW that Andrews was concerned that by making an appearance she could take the spotlight away from her successor Emily Blunt.

“[Julie] had known it was in the works, then we said, ‘We’re doing it,’ and she said, ‘Oh, thank God,’” said Marshall. “Then we said, ‘And we’re thinking of Emily Blunt,’ and she just threw her hands up in the air and said yes. I think a lot of people feel that way about Emily’s work. Julie will always be, for me and for everybody, the most astonishing performance as Mary Poppins, winning the Oscar and bursting onto the scene so brilliantly. But Emily is the »

Martin Scorsese Pens Heartfelt Tribute to Brad Grey: ‘He Protected Me’

23 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Usually I’m the one chasing down movies, but this time they were chasing me. I’d been through two tough films — well, they’re all tough, but these were marked by constant fighting with the producers and studio — and I was drained. I wasn’t playing hard to get; I just didn’t know if I could do it. But I liked the script by Bill Monahan, the cast was coming together; and maybe a gangster picture was just what I needed. I listened to the pitch by the young producer, Brad Grey, and agreed to direct “The Departed.”

Over the next month, red flags started to appear. The usual stuff — problems with scheduling, the budget, etc. — and I didn’t want to step into that maelstrom. I walked away. Then another meeting was set up. We went over the budget and schedule. It all seemed reasonable, and I »

Cannes Update: Joanna Hogg to Direct “The Souvenir”

22 May 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Joanna Hogg: BFIEvent/YouTube

Exhibition” writer-director Joanna Hogg has a new project in the works. The British filmmaker will helm “The Souvenir,” a romantic mystery executive-produced by Sikelia ProductionsMartin Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff. ScreenDaily reports that the two-part movie will span the decade of the ’80s. Word of the project broke at Cannes.

Set to shoot this summer, “The Souvenir” centers on a young female film student who “tries to disentangle fact from fiction in a relationship with a complicated and untrustworthy man,” the source summarizes. The protagonist hasn’t been cast yet, but Tom Burke (“Only God Forgives”) will play her boyfriend, and Robert Pattinson (“Twilight”) has signed on to play the male lead in the second installment of the film, which will shoot in summer 2018.

The project was developed with the BFI and received backing from BBC Films.

ScreenDaily writes that “The Souvenir” is expected to be “art-house filmmaker Hogg’s most commercial prospect to date.” Her last feature, 2013’s “Exhibition,” centers on a couple who both work as contemporary artists. Her other credits include “Archipelago” and “Unrelated.” It was the former that caught Scorsese’s eye. He told Screen, “The film came my way by chance. I was in London shooting ‘Hugo’ and someone sent me a DVD of ‘Archipelago.’ I remember looking at the film on the weekend and being very surprised by it. It was a stunning experience for me,” he emphasized. “I found it moving and beautiful. I then met Joanna in London.”

Hogg explained, “This story has been in my head for a few years. After ‘Exhibition,’ I talked to Martin about what I should do next. I had two ideas: one was a ghost story. The other was this one.” She revealed, “I start from autobiography. When I investigate a story I realize what I don’t remember and the demands of fiction take over: that’s the fun part. Reality and fiction are so jumbled up. That blurring is partly what I’m exploring in this story.”

In 2015 Hogg co-curated a retrospective of Chantal Akerman’s work. Check out a tribute she co-wrote for the late pioneering filmmaker — who she says “changed what cinema is or could be or ought to be” — over at The Guardian.

Cannes Update: Joanna Hogg to Direct “The Souvenir” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
