Watch: 'Beasts of No Nation' Trailer from the Director of 'True Detective'

30 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Netflix continues its bid to dip its toes into all film and television waters, one of their upcoming projects is Beasts of No Nation, the latest film from Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, "True Detective") with Idris Elba in the lead role alongside newcomer Abraham Attah as Agu, a child soldier fighting in the civil war of an unnamed African country. Beasts of No Nation will have its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, will then likely play Telluride and will finish up the circuit in Toronto after that, all before releasing in limited theaters and streaming on Netflix on Oct. 16. It's new territory for not only prestige cinema, but cinema altogether as television and the movies are coming together in ways previously thought unfathomable. Certainly some films will still stand to make the most money with major theatrical releases and it will be interesting to see »

Read More: Tribeca: Cary Fukunaga On 'True Detective,' Netflix's 'Beasts of No Nation' Release, and Stephen King's 'It' While Cary Fukunaga broke out in the mainstream for his acclaimed, Emmy-winning direction of "True Detective" Season 1, indie cinephiles have been fans of his for quite some time, given the powerful vision on display in his two feature films, "Sin Nombre" and "Jane Eyre." Fortunately, the success of HBO's crime drama has given Fukunaga his biggest canvas yet in his new drama, "Beasts of No Nation," which Netflix acquired in March in a headline-making $12 million deal. "Luther" favorite Idris Elba stars as a ruthless war lord who takes in a young boy, Agu (newcomer Abraham Attah) and trains him to become a child solider. The film is based on the novel by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala, and if the grueling teaser trailer above is any indication, the drama should be a harrowing, »

Someone must make a choice in first trailer for ‘Beasts of No Nation’

30 July 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The first trailer for the next feature film from director Cary Fukunaga was revealed on Thursday as Netflix offered the first look at Beasts of No Nation. The film is set to debut in theaters and on the streaming service.

Starring Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation centers on a young African boy who is forced to become a child soldier in a rebel army, after his parents are killed, which is led by a brutal commandant played by Elba. The child is played by newcomer Abraham Attah.

Fukunaga caught everyone’s attention with True Detective, which he directed for every episode of the first season, but he has also debuted strong films such as Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre prior to this and it looks like he returns with a project that he has been wanting to make for awhile. It also features Elba, who has been doing great »

Watch: Idris Elba Leads Child Soldiers In The First Trailer For Cary Fukunaga’s ‘Beasts Of No Nation’

30 July 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Cary Fukunaga burst onto the independent cinema scene in 2009 with his striking debut and immigration drama “Sin Nombre.” He’s made several celebrated films since and of course really cemented his auteur status by directing the entire first season of “True Detective.” But one of the first projects he announced after Focus Features and Universal signed him up for a big three picture deal in the wake of the critical “Sin Nombre” buzz was a little project called “Beasts Of No Nation,” based on the book by Nigerian-American author Uzodinma Iweala. The project was seemingly long forgotten after Fukunaga went on to make “Jane Eyre,” “True Detective,” and signed on for myriad other projects — many of which have come and gone like the adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” — but he swung back to the project last year with Idris Elba in the lead (and really the only star in »

Locarno: ‘Fait Vivir,’ ‘Home,’ ’Fusileros’ Set for Match Me!

22 July 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Oscar Ruiz Navia’s “Fait Vivir,” Gustavo Rosa de Moura’s “Coming Back Home” and Juan Ignacio Sabatini’s “Los Fusileros” feature among projects and productions to be pitched by a new generation of Latin American directors-producers at the Locarno Festival’s inaugural Match Me!, an informal networking platform.

Drawn from Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Brazil, the 14 filmmakers include past Locarno winners – Tatiana Leite, Oscar Ruiz Navoa — and a chance to meet young producers – few are north of 40 — who are reforging the production in Latin America as the region still powers up production and grabs market share. At 62.4 million, 2014 admissions to local films in eight main Latin American territories nose-dived 16.9% on 2013, the European Audiovisual Observatory announced at Cannes. But, in a generally off year, 62.4 million ticket sales is still “well above” Latin American box office levels prior to 2012, the Eao observed.

Though down by 2.7%, production levels in Argentina, Brazil, »

New Line's 'It' Project Loses Director Cary Fukunaga, Now Delayed

26 May 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Troubles with another big production. It was recently reported by The Wrap that New Line Cinema's new version of It, adapted from Stephen King's book about the evil clown, has been delayed indefinitely due to production troubles. Specifically, they say that director Cary Fukunaga is no longer attached and has left the project, which was nearing a June start date but was halted due to budget problems and other issues. The adaptation was originally set up at Warner Bros, with Roy Lee and Dan Lin producing, but only recently shifted to New Line where they're a bit more stern about how much they're willing to spend. Now it's stuck. Director Cary Fukunaga (Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, "True Detective", Beasts of No Nation) was working on developing a two-part adaptation of Stephen King's evil clown story It, and they were even close to securing Will Poulter for the lead role as Pennywise. »

Will Poulter to Play Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga's New 'It' Movies

4 May 2015 2:29 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Watch out Tim Curry. Over at Variety they're reporting that Cary Fukunaga (of Sin Nombre, Jane Eyre, Beasts of No Nation, "True Detective") has cast the lead in his new It feature, which will be split into two movies. Sources have told them that young actor Will Poulter, currently 22 years old, is "in negotiations" to play Pennywise the evil clown. Poulter last appeared in The Maze Runner as Gally, along with A Plea for Grimsby, Glassland, We're the Millers and Son of Rambow. He's also in the upcoming The Revenant, which we'll all be watching this December. Apparently the audition won over Fukunaga and they couldn't say no. We've been following development on this It project for years, but with Cary Fukunaga bouncing all over between major projects after winning the Emmy for directing "True Detective", it's hard to tell if this was happening sooner or later. It now appears sooner might be the case. »

Poulter is Pennywise in Cary Fukunaga’s It

Cary Fukunaga is to be trusted. From Sin Nombre to his evocative adaptation of Jane Eyre to last year’s moody, weird fiction-recalling cop drama True Detective, the director’s atmosphere is real deal and it’s exciting to anticipate his take on a real deal horror property like Stephen King’s It. Similarly exciting, whatever his vision of the now iconic…
