FilmNation is screening a promo of futuristic sci-fi Redivider at the Efm in Berlin.
Currently in post-production after a 2014 shoot, first-time feature writer-director Tim Smit’s VFX-heavy futuristic feature charts the story of a pilot battling to save his family and the planet.
FilmNation’s Aaron Ryder is among producers on the project, based on Smit’s short What’s In The Box?. Smit was a VFX supervisor on 2015 crime-drama Tiger House and worked on 2013 thriller Last Passenger.
Set in a future version of the world, the video game style plot follows an experiment for unlimited energy, harnessing parallel universes, which goes wrong. Chased by drones and soldiers, pilot and physicist Will Porter must race through an imploding world to get the Redivider box to a tower, which will save »

Adele photobombed unsuspecting fans during her BBC Concert Special, giving them mild panic attacks as they offered her hugs following the surprise. Fans were able to take pictures with the Oscar statue that Adele received for her “Skyfall” song. While they were posing for the camera, Adele and BBC host Graham Norton paraded around in the background with different props, one of which was a cell phone, mocking Adele’s music video to “Hello.” When she finally revealed herself to the fans quoting her song, many fans shrieked and squealed at the sight of the singer, who is set to go on. »

Never change, Adele. In a new clip from her BBC concert special scheduled to air in the United States on Sunday, Feb. 14, Adele and Graham Norton get into some hijinks with her fans. What's better: Taking a picture with Adele's "Skyfall" Oscar or taking a picture with Adele's "Skyfall" Oscar while Adele photobombs you? Yeah, we'd make that choice too. What's even better than the sight gags are the reactions she gets when she surprises the lucky fans. It's safe to say we're all that girl at the end of the clip who starts squealing and flailing. And before you start griping, yes this is the same special that originally aired overseas on BBC One on November 20 and gifted the »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight The last few years has seen a populist uprising in the best original song category. In 2012, Adele became one step closer to Egot by winning the Oscar for "Skyfall" alongside Paul Epworth. In 2013, the extraordinarily popular "Frozen" anthem "Let It Go" beat out the mainstream likes of Pharrell Williams, U2 and Karen O. And last year, John Legend and Common won for their "Selma" song "Glory." It seems the days where we'd never heard of the best original song winner are long gone ("Al otro lado del rio" from "The Motorcycle Diaries," anyone?) -- and here are the days when they are #1 on iTunes the day after the Oscars. Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might shake down in the race for best original song. Check out Thompson on Hollywood's Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis.

It’s the burden on everyone else to lament that Roger Deakins has yet to score an Oscar from his 13 nominations. Speaking with the famed cinematographer himself, it’s clear he’s honed in on the process and the process only; this year’s nomination is for Denis Villeneuve’s “Sicario,” yet he’s already lensed the Coen Brothers’ “Hail, Caesar!” and started prep on “Blade Runner 2” (again with Villeneuve). He’s also uniquely generous in sharing that process, as one of the few DPs to moderate an online forum with discussions and advice on lighting, gear, and narrative techniques. From his early career in documentaries to shooting diverse, high-profile projects like “Skyfall,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” and “A Serious Man,” Deakins has fostered a number of creative partnerships while embracing the numerous shifts in technology. A collaborator of the Coens since “Barton Fink, »

Matt Damon is returning for the fifth film in the "Bourne" series, and if you bet on "Jason Bourne" as the official title, you were right. And you were probably lying. Every other "Bourne" film, including the one that starred Jeremy Renner instead of the actual Bourne, was called "The Bourne [Something]." So this is an unorthodox title and gives us a clue that they may be trying something different across the board.
The first trailer -- shown during the 2016 Super Bowl -- and poster emphasize, James Bond-style, that we know this guy's name. Maybe it's meant to show how the man who could be calling himself David Webb or any other name (Tyler Durden?) is now embracing his Bourne to Kill status, after a long (presumed dead?) absence since 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum."
We hear Bourne say he knows who he is, he remembers everything, and it sounds like Julia Stiles »

This year’s batch of Oscar original song nominees represents quite the motley crew, with an operatic aria on one end of the spectrum and a bumping, post-coital soul track on the other.
“(Director) Sam Taylor-Johnson wanted a song that had more soul to it, and, more importantly, that was coming from a male perspective,” Moccio says.
The song, which features Moccio on piano, is based on just two chords. Only toward the end does it shift into other harmonic territory, “where the strings kind of go wild,” he says. “That was »

Though it was hugely hyped up, especially following on the heels of Skyfall, one of the most financially and critically successful James Bond movies ever, Spectre wasn.t quite as great as everyone hoped. It simply left a lot of people flat and didn.t bring anything new to the table for the franchise that.s been going for more than 50 years. Given the less than optimal results, you probably knew this was coming, but Spectre got its very own Honest Trailer today. The latest offering from Screen Junkies picks Spectre apart in typically brutal fashion. I actually enjoyed the movie well enough.it.s likely the worst of the Daniel Craig-era, and it.s little more than paint-by-numbers Bond, but that.s still more entertaining than most movies out there. Still, even with that, a lot of the points in this video are spot on and warranted. Spectre »
Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story […]

James Bond returned last fall with "Spectre," and the movie has not achieved the commercial success of "Skyfall" nor did it continue the franchise revitalization vibe of "Casino Royale." So what was it? Well, Screen Junkies is here with their latest Honest Trailer to break it all down. Read More: Review: Sam Mendes' 'Spectre,' Starring Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux & Ralph Fiennes Calling it quite accurately "Bond-by-the-numbers," the video takes the movie to task for dully running down the expected Bond tropes, including fancy cars, gadgets, catchphrases, and women (or as they call them, "underdeveloped female sex objects" —zing). This Honest Trailer also calls out the predictable Blofeld reveal, as well as the film's penchant for board meetings, briefings, and other stuff you don't want to see in a Bond movie. Check out the Honest Trailer takedown of 007 below. »

Nicolas Winding Refn is an expert at being coy. When it was announced last week that he was working with Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade ("Casino Royale," "Quantum Of Solace," "Skyfall," "Spectre") on an Asia-set action thriller, the general assumption was that it was his long-brewing "The Avenging Silence." It's safe to say that it is, but when asked directly by Deadline if it was that project, Refn of course did a little dance around completely confirming it. "Well, I think it may very well be. But it’s always fun to suddenly change things around," he said. Read More: Interview: Nicolas Winding Refn Talks 'The Act Of Seeing', Why There's No Sex In His Films, 'The Neon Demon,' And More Okay, I'm just going to go ahead and assume the Purvis/Wade project is "The Avenging Silence," and hearing Refn describe the movie, it sounds »

Deadline is reporting that Nicolas Winding Refn is to team up with Skyfall and Spectre screenwriters Neil Purvis and Robert Wade for a new film which “will have an Asian setting with both thriller and action elements.” Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Refn will direct the project, as well as producing through his Space Rocket Nation company.
Refn’s latest film The Neon Demon is set for release later this year and stars Elle Fanning as an “aspiring model who moves to Los Angeles, where her youth and vitality are devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has.” Also featuring in the cast are Christina Hendricks (Drive), Jena Malone (Inherent Vice), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Desmond Harrington (Wrong Turn), Alessandro Nivola (Selma), Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Keanu Reeves (John Wick). »

Donald Trump has been using some of Adele‘s biggest hits during his campaign for president. Adele is hitting back. “Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” said her rep to the Daily News. Trump frequently plays her hits, “Skyfall” and “Rolling in the Deep” to rally up his audience before speaking. […]

Donald Trump "could've had it all," but now he'll have nothing, as Adele has denied him permission from using any of her music on the campaign trail. The real estate magnate has used "Rolling in the Deep" and "Skyfall" at various events to rev up the crowd, but that will soon come to an end as a rep for the famous singer tells E! News, "Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning." An Adele fan, Trump attended her Radio City Music Hall concert at the end of 2015. Trump isn't the first politician to appropriate the British singer's music for campaign use. Mike Huckabee also shared a cover of Adele's "Hello" »
Having just completed The Neon Demon, Nicolas Winding Refn is preparing to dive headfirst into his next new movie. He’s set to team with Spectre and Skyfall scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade for an Asia-set action-thriller, which may or may not be his previously mentioned project The Avenging Silence. Deadline broke the news. Refn is developing and producing the movie with Lene […]

For quite a while now, Nicolas Winding Refn has been talking about "The Avenging Silence," a Tokyo-set movie that would feature a protagonist not unlike the ones played by Mads Mikkelsen in "Valhalla Rising" and Ryan Gosling in "Drive" — a stoic, silent, singularly driven character. And while he has been tight-lipped about any plot details, last summer he revealed that the script was in the works, and added, "I would love to do like a spy movie, something like that." So bear in that mind with this latest development. Read More: Watch A 1-Hour Talk With Nicolas Winding Refn About His Book 'The Act Of Seeing' Deadline reports that writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade — James Bond franchise veterans who have put their pen to six 007 movies including "Casino Royale," "Quantum Of Solace," "Skyfall," and "Spectre" — are working with Refn on a project that "will have an Asian »

Film is dead. Despite a few notable holdouts such as Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan and some budding young filmmakers who like the aesthetic, digital filming has pretty much supplanted film stock in usage on motion picture and TV production.
In fact, and despite the 70mm rollout for "The Hateful Eight," don't expect film to make a comeback says Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins. Deakins, considered one of the world's best directors of photography for movies working today, made the jump to digital years ago and the results have been some stunning looking films such as "Skyfall," "Sicario" and "Prisoners".
Speaking with Variety, he was asked about the divide and says "just the technical problems with film, I'm sorry, it's over". Deakins is also a long time collaborator with the Coen brothers who have always shot on film, revealed that the Coens were actually debating about going digital for "Hail, Caesar!" and »

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?
