Exclusive: Comedy co-stars Miou-Miou and Camille Chamoux; first look revealed.

WestEnd Films is launching world sales on Saving Mum (working title), a heartwarming comedy which reunites the team behind French comedy Connasse: writer-director Eloïse Lang and French actress Camille Cottin (Allied).

The Stunning New 'Blade Runner 2049' Trailer Is Here

8 May 2017 3:40 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The summer of 1982 was an amazing season for movies. On the same weekend in late June, for example, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner opened opposite John Carpenter's The Thing. Both were overshadowed by the blockbuster success of Steven Spielberg's E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial at the box office, but all three remain fan favorites. Fast forward 35 years later and we're eagerly awaiting a sequel to one of those sci-fi classics: Blade Runner 2049. One reason for our excitement is that Denis Villeneuve is directing. He broke out on the international scene with Incendies, which nabbed an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, following that up with kidnapping thriller Prisoners, intense mystery Enemy and the action-packed suspense thriller Sicario.

Denis Villeneuve revealed no spoilers from Alcon Entertainment’s upcoming Blade Runner 2049, but the director promised the sci-fi would go deeper into familiar terrain that was relevant to contemporary talking points.

“We’re still exploring the themes of memories and empathy,” Villeneuve said at Monday’s launch of the first full trailer hosted by IMAX in Los Angeles and webcast via Facebook Live.

“That’s the deeper tissue of where the movie evolves and what it means to be human.”

Chuck: Director Philippe Falardeau On The Liev Schreiber Boxing Drama

8 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

French-Canadian filmmaker Philippe Falardeau has actually been making movies for almost twenty years, but it wasn’t until about 2011 when he first started getting attention for his drama Monsieur Lazhar, which was nominated for a foreign language Oscar. Falardeau’s 2014 movie The Good Lie, didn’t get much notice despite starring Reese Witherspoon and being released by Warner Bros. Therefore, he hasn’t quite made the waves into Hollywood as his country-mates Denis Villeneuve or Jean-Marc Vallée (Wild).

Undaunted, Falardeau decided to take on the story of Bayonne, New Jersey boxer Chuck Wepner, who famously went up against Ali at the height of his success in the ‘70s and managed to go 15 rounds before the fight was called due to Wepner’s famed “bleeding” during fights.  Wepner was alternately known as “The Bayonne Brawler” and “The Bayonne Bleeder.”

The movie Chuck stars Liev Schreiber as the famed boxer who would »

Denis Villeneuve will take some much-deserved time off before tackling Dune

7 March 2017 5:32 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Denis Villeneuve is a busy man. Between Incendies, Prisoners, Enemy, Sicario and Arrival he has one of the most impressive résumés of any director working today. Each movie has been as good, if not better, than the last, and with Blade Runner 2049 on the way we have a lot to be excited about. Needless to say the dude has earned a break, and much to the dismay of fans that means putting... Read More »

Running the Maze: "Arrival" and the Cinema of Denis Villeneuve

25 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

When we last saw Denis Villeneuve, with 2015's Sicario, Anthony Lane began his review for The New Yorker with a pair of blunt questions: "What does Denis Villeneuve do for fun? Does he know what fun is?" Lane's tone was more bemused than derisive, but he has a point: Villeneuve's cinematic world is grim, full of sickly color tints, sterile or impersonal settings, ominous silences broken by rattling gunfire, a pervasive atmosphere of doom, and protagonists who comport themselves like wide-eyed lambs on their way to the slaughter. After all, his are films where a lonely Emily Blunt can't meet a man at a bar and a bored Jake Gyllenhaal can't rent a movie without both turning into paranoid nightmares. "Sometimes it's best not to know," a weary witness tells the heroine of Villeneuve's Incendies (2010), a time-shifting French-Canadian mystery that picked up an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Film and »

Who Should Win the 2017 Oscars? How Variety’s Critics Would Vote

24 February 2017 11:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The ballots are in, and the Oscars are but days away. Variety critics Peter Debruge, Owen Gleiberman, and Guy Lodge may not be Academy members, but if they were, here’s how they would have voted in the top eight categories.

Peter Debruge

Best Picture: “Moonlight.” Nothing against “La La Land,” whose realist take on contemporary romance brings a welcome edge to the fizzy old-fashioned song-and-dance format, but “Moonlight” marks the artistic breakthrough here — and not just because the Oscars (and the industry at large) have been #sowhite for #solong. Barry Jenkins’ superb portrait of a lonely young man seeking connection in Miami focuses audiences’ attention on the sort of character the movies so often marginalize — or overlook entirely — and makes the specificity of his experience feel universal. I ranked “Hell or High Water” one notch higher on my year-end top 10, but that movie is too similar to 2008 winner “No Country for Old Men »

Yes, Damien Chazelle’s ‘La La Land’ Really Will Win Director and Picture Oscars — Here’s Why

17 February 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Late in the Oscar season, at the moment when voters actually fill in their ballots (the deadline is February 21 at 5 pm), it all comes down to what movies they have actually seen. What did they love the most, and is freshest in their minds? Which film aligns with the zeitgeist, delivering the message that 6,000 voters want to send?

The five directing nominations tend to line up with the strongest Best Picture contenders, although snubbed director nominee Ben Affleck did win Best Picture win for “Argo.” However, that underdog story became a narrative in itself that drove “Argo” to the win.

This year, the narratives include the aftermath of#OscarsSoWhite and the election of Donald J. Trump. Which will stick?

Here’s how the Best Director and Best Picture races are shaking out.

Denis Villeneuve on the Risk of ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and Why ‘Dune’ is 35 Years in the Making

13 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Denis Villeneuve has been slowly rising the ranks in Hollywood with acclaimed and profitable dramas like “Prisoners,” “Sicario” and this year’s eight-time Oscar nominee “Arrival,” for which he’s earned his first nomination for Best Director, but he’s about to become an even bigger household. On October 6, he’s bringing Ridley Scott’s iconic science-fiction drama “Blade Runner” back to the big screen for a sequel starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, and he recently was confirmed to be taking the reigns on Legendary Pictures’ “Dune” reboot. If we had to name a master of science-fiction right now, it would definitely be Denis Villeneuve.

The Humanity in the Films of Denis Villeneuve

9 February 2017 1:37 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Denis Villeneuve prolifically building an impressive catalogue of work — following IncendiesEnemy, Prisoners, and Sicario, his latest film Arrival is catching Oscar attention, as well as his upcoming Blade Runner: 2049 being one of the most-anticipated films of the year — people are diving deeply into the connective tissue across his films. A new video essay by Mr. Nerdista titled How Denis Villeneuve Explores Humanity dissects the auteur’s work from a vital perspective: the human one.

Studying the concept of ‘invasion’ — not just the metaphorical, but the literal, too — to understand humanity, the essay breaks the term down into three categories: invasion of land, invasion of innocence, and invasion of privacy/identity. These themes are stretched over the director’s filmography, from Enemy to Incendies to Arrival, all with varying capacities and perspectives.

An interesting point of study is his dissection of Sicario, which he posits as Villeneuve’s »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Director race

The Best Director race is very diverse and exciting this year.

It's also very close. With La La Land's Damien Chazelle and Moonlight's Barry Jenkins up against each other, it could easily go either way. At this rate it looks like a neck and neck race between these two contenders, as both films are the favourite to win the Best Picture Oscar. The other three men in the category, Manchester by the Sea's Kenneth Lonergan, Arrival's Denis Villeneuve and Hacksaw Ridge's Mel Gibson are all worthy contenders as well. It's also rather impressive that four out five of these directors are first time nominees.

Directing Nominees Confess Biggest Hurdles, On-Set MVPs

7 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With five such different cinematic visions represented, what do this year’s Oscar nominees for director have in common?

It depends on whom you ask. Kenneth Lonergan, nominated writer-director of “Manchester by the Sea,” links the final five this way: They each “focus on deep connective tissue on a human level, even though they are all very different stylistically and in subject matter,” he tells Variety.

Mel Gibson, director of “Hacksaw Ridge,” invokes the process itself. “What do we have in common?” he asks. “At some point, somebody asked each of us a thousand questions a day and we had to make snap decisions.”

Each shares a fierce inventiveness, necessitated by the time and budget constraints each faced mounting their creatively ambitious projects.

“These movies couldn’t be more different,” points out “Moonlight” writer-director Barry Jenkins. “The movies I like best are the ones where you can feel the curiosity »

Oscar’s Embrace of Young Artists Gives Hope for the Future

6 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every year the Oscar nominations provide an opportunity to take the pulse of the movie industry. Which films, performances, and craftwork connected with Hollywood this year? Which studios are committed to quality projects? Who commands the respect of their peers? And who are the faces to watch?

There’s a particularly exciting answer to the last question this year. The 89th Oscar nominees provide something we’re all looking for right now: hope for the future.

An astonishing number of younger artists and/or first-time nominees are on the ballot, and while Oscar nominations are no guarantee of ongoing success in the industry, the numbers this year are still overwhelming enough to give moviegoers reason to believe we’ll be seeing great work from these contenders for years to come.

A large part of that excitement comes from two films: “La La Land,” the year’s most nominated movie with 14 noms, »

It's always great to see Canadian talent being recognized by Hollywood.

While we did endure a couple of snubs today, as we would've loved to see Xavier Dolan finally be nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category for It's Only the End of the World, or a surprise nomination for Ryan Reynolds as our favourite crass superhero, Deadpool, there was still a lot of Canadian love given to us by the Academy.

Two major players are ones you'll recognize, and are also coincidentally working together on Blade Runner 2049. Canadian actor and hearthrob Ryan Gosling today earned his second Oscar nomination for playing Sebastian, the jazz pianist, in La La Land. The first time he was nominated was ten years ago when he played »

Interview: Denis Villeneuve on "Arrival" and his Future with Sci-Fi

12 January 2017 6:40 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

Though awards season is a roller coaster of emotion each year, one of its purely happiest annual trends is the sudden recognition of talent that have been doing consistently fine work all along. This year's "it's about time!" contender is surely 49 year old French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve. A famous director at home with six wins at Canada's own Oscars, "the Genies," people are still learning his name in Hollywood and beyond. His international breakthrough was Incendies (2010) about twin siblings journeying to the war torn Middle East. It was nominated for the BAFTA and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. Since that breakthrough his profile in Hollywood has steadily risen and he's shown a gift for directing movie stars, versatility with genre, and a particularly refined skill at building and maintaining tension at feature length which has provided thrilling moments in all of his recent films from »

‘Arrival’: How DGA Nominee Denis Villeneuve Shaped His Unique Oscar Contender

12 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There’s no question that “Arrival” is one of the best-crafted movies of 2016 — its many critics group and guild nominations attest to this. On Oscar nominations morning, the sci-fi drama will likely dominate the field along with “La La Land.” And in a competitive year for the Best Actress Oscar, Amy Adams is in contention for a slot.

All that said, there’s no way this film’s smart script and unique visuals would have survived a studio’s development process.

The movie boasts an unusual pedigree: Independently produced by Fox’s 21 Laps producer Shawn Levy, Film Nation and Lava Bear, and acquired by Paramount at auction for $20 million at Cannes 2014, “Arrival” is far from Hollywood standard fare. It’s custom-made and idiosyncratic in all the right ways. Montreal filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who has charted »
