Aamir Khan’s ‘Pk’ Heads for September Release in Korea

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Record-breaking Indian comedy drama “Pk” will get a theatrical release in South Korea in September.

Specialty distributor Waw Pictures has announced a Sept. 3 date for the Rajkumar Hirani-directed picture fronted by Indian superstar Aamir Khan.

The Utv / Disney-backed picture was an unsurprising hit in India and normal diaspora market, but also obliterated box office records for an Indian movie in China. Released in May this year, it grossed $19.4 million. (U.K. earnings were $3.17 million, while in North America it topped $10.6 million.)

Indian films have had flurries of success in Korea. After the global sensation of British-made, Indian-set “Slumdog Millionaire,” Indian originated films including Hirani and Khan’s ‘3 Idiots” and “My Name Is Khan” became hits with some 450,000 ticket sales for ‘3 Idiots.”

Since then, however, other titles have struggled as the novelty of Indian films pales and as exhibitors become less tolerant of two and a half hour running times. »

Toronto: Festival Slate Brings Fall Landscape Into Focus

28 July 2015 11:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scott Foundas: Well, the cat is really out of the bag now. After weeks of intense blogosphere speculation about the fall festival season and palate-whetting gala announcements from the New York Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival kicked things into high gear this morning when it announced more than 40 titles that will comprise the festival’s Gala and Special Presentations categories come September. It’s a typically starry list, full of A-list names in front of and behind the camera, some very obvious Oscar bait, and a few Toronto stalwarts to satisfy the requisite quota of local Canadian talent, including Atom Egoyan, who makes a bid for a comeback (after the career-pummeling one-two of “Devil’s Knot” and “The Captive”) with “Remember,” starring Christopher Plummer as a Holocaust survivor trying to track down the former Nazi guard responsible for murdering his family.

Egoyan’s film is listed by the »

Ar Rahman interview: The Mozart of Madras on the greatest lesson he's learned

28 July 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In a career spanning more than two decades and spawning over 100 movie soundtracks and anthems, composer Ar Rahman has been hailed as a global music icon.

Dubbed the "Mozart of Madras", Rahman's extensive musical credentials belie his years and his humility. The double Grammy, double Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner, who also has four National Awards and more Filmfare Awards than you could count, was named one of the world's most influential people by Time magazine, in recognition of his contribution to music.

Rahman first came to prominence in the 1990s for his rousing soundtracks for Mani Ratnam's Roja, Bombay and Dil Se. He is credited with single-handedly revolutionising Indian cinema, and to date he has composed the soundtracks for over 100 Bollywood films. With record sales of over 200 million albums worldwide, he trounces the collective efforts of Madonna and Britney Spears. He has recorded tracks with Michael Jackson, »

Legal Ease: Tamhane’s Frustrating, Numbing Portrait of India’s Legal System

Director Chaitanya Tamhane won Best Film in the Horizons program at the 2014 Venice Film Festival for his debut feature, Court, a near two hour procedural documenting the hellish process of India’s legal justice system. An impressive achievement for a first feature on a technical and narrative level, the film is exhausting as it is fascinating, figuring as a prominent and compelling indictment on archaic procedures dictated by the laws of a draconian age. Compelling performances from both professional and non-professional cast members help paint an indelibly human face on the type of predicament generally referred to as Kafkaesque.

Narayan Kamble (Vira Sathidar) is a 65 year old folk singer arrested for performing a song in public calling for sewer workers to kill themselves. After the body of one such worker is discovered, he is charged with abetting suicide. »

New Trailer for Universal Pictures’ Everest Released

16 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.

Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

Baltasar Kormakur’s ‘Everest’ to Open Venice Film Festival

8 July 2015 4:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Baltasar Kormakur’s mountain climbing thriller “Everest,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, will open the 72nd Venice Film Festival.

Buzz pic, set to bow out of competition on the Lido September 2, recaps the 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that left eight climbers dead. Gyllenhaal plays Scott Fischer, with Jason Clarke as Rob Hall, Josh Brolin as Beck Weathers, and John Hawkes as Doug Hansen.

It marks a nice coup for Venice artistic director topper Alberto Barbera, following “Birdman” as opener last year, and sci-fi thriller “Gravity” in 2013.

Euro exhibitors who got a closed-door screening of “Everest” at the CineEurope meet in Barcelona last week were impressed.

Producers are Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Baltasar Kormakur, Nicky Kentish Barnes, and Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson.

DVD Review – The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)

Directed by John Madden

Starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie, Tina Desai, Dev Patel, Shazad Latif, Tamsin Greig and Richard Gere.

Synposis:

As the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for two fresh arrivals – Sonny pursues his expansionist dream of opening a second hotel.

This sequel to John Madden’s 2011 hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel had few requirements to fulfill. Of most importance, the stellar cast from the first film returned in force, bolstered by a handful of bright, new faces. The largely-British ensemble cast, extensively listed above, features actors whom it is a simple pleasure to watch. Bill Nighy (Pride) is a perennial charmer, and his relationship with the delightful Dame Judi Dench (Philomena) is only a recipe for success. The screen is stolen by »

"Musicians play their instruments – I play the orchestra." That key line, from the new trailer for upcoming biopic Steve Jobs, is delivered by Michael Fassbender, as the enigmatic Apple mogul defends his position against co-founder Steve Wozniak

"What do you do?" Wozniak (Seth Rogen) asks his business partner. "You're not an engineer. You're not a designer. You can't put a hammer to a nail. I built the circuit board. The graphical interface was stolen. So how come, 10 times in a day, I read Steve Jobs is a genius. What do you do? »

Steve Jobs Trailer Unmasks A Diabolical Visionary

1 July 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The dark side of Steve Jobs is on full display in the first trailer for Universal’s upcoming biopic of the Apple CEO, which takes place backstage at a handful of the most important product launches of his career.

It’s undeniably exciting to see Steve Jobs finally making its way to theaters – the project was originally set up at Sony, with Scott Rudin producing and David Fincher directing, but that fell apart rather spectacularly and Sony unceremoniously dumped the movie, leaving Universal to swoop in. Now, thankfully, production has wrapped and the pic is well on its way to theaters.

Aaron Sorkin (The Newsroom) wrote the script and appears to have packed it with some absolutely stinging lines of dialogue, from the sounds of the new trailer. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) is at the helm here, returning to prestige fare after 2013’s silly caper Trance, and he’s »
