Is there enough 'art' in Danish film?

11 April 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A panel of experts at Cph Pix say that the luxury of public support for Danish film may be inhibiting risktaking and creating a ‘monoculture’ on screen.

If you look in recent lineups of Berlinale Forum or Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, you see an absence of new Danish films. That’s despite the country’s film industry going through something of a golden age of international success from Love Is All You Need to The Hunt to A Royal Affair and Nymphomaniac, with one of the world’s best government-backed support systems for film.

So where are the ‘art’ films? That was the question posed at a panel on Thursday at the Cph Pix festival in Copenhagen.

Vinca Wiedemann [pictured], the widely respected producer who just became head of the National Film School of Denmark, noted that when she was the first artistic director of the Danish Film Institute’s New Danish Screen strand, which is engineered »

The Strange Colour of Your Body’s Tears review: the color of nasty

11 April 2014 5:01 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A teeth-grindingly, blood-boilingly infuriating cinematic trial that’s like an art school film project gone horribly awry. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of experimental film

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

A man arrives home from a business trip to discover his wife missing yet the door to their apartment chained from the inside. That’s about as coherent a moment to be found in this teeth-grindingly, blood-boilingly infuriating cinematic trial. As Dan (the Willem Dafoe-esque Klaus Tange: A Royal Affair) explores the gothic Art Nouveau building he and his wife live in, seeking clues to her disappearance — from the likes of the Miss Havisham up on the seventh floor, who tells a tale of her husband vanishing within the structure as well — we are “treated” to a phantasmagorical nightmare that’s like an art school film project gone horribly awry. »

Filming Begins on World War I True Story 'Testament of Youth,' Starring Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander

17 March 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Filming has kicked off on World War I drama "Testament of Youth," starring Kit Harington ("Pompeii," "Game of Thrones") and Alicia Vikander ("A Royal Affair"). Helmed by Brit TV director James Kent, the film tells the true story of Vera Brittain, who delayed her studies at Oxford to be a nurse during the war; she then had to keep her life together after both her fiancé and brother were killed in battle. Vikander plays Brittain and Harington her fiancé, Roland Leighton. The project, backed by BBC Films, comes at an appropriate moment: 2014 is the centennial of the beginning of World War I. David Heyman ("Gravity") is producing; the film is shooting on location in Yorkshire, Oxford and London. »

More directors rumoured for Marvel's Doctor Strange

12 March 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like Marvel Studios has added a few more potential directors to its shortlist for Doctor Strange, with THR reporter Borys Kit suggesting that Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is now in contention alongside the previously mentioned Mark Andrews (Brave) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).

The latter two were rumoured last month along with Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) and Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), although Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige subsequently shot down the shortlist as speculation.

Jonathan Levine would certainly bring an interesting indie sensibility to the Hollywood glamour of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but for me, Nikolaj Arcel seems best fit - if only so that we get to see Mads Mikkelsen joining the McU.

Who would be your choice to director Doctor Strange? Let us know in the comments below or head on over to The Flickering Myth Forum...

Sinister Director Scott Derrickson On Shortlist For Doctor Strange

12 March 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Marvel marketing machine is now in full swing, promoting the company’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but, as always, our interests lie more in what’s further down the road. The studio is notorious for planning years in advance, and one film they’ve been talking about for some time now is Doctor Strange. We know Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige is excited about it, and though the movie hasn’t even been officially announced yet, we recently heard that a shortlist of directors had emerged.

Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all reportedly in the mix to bring the Sorcerer Supreme to the big screen, and we now have another name that’s been tossed into the ring: Sinister director Scott Derrickson. Check out the official tweet below:

Four for 'Fantastic Four's Dr. Doom & Three Directors Target 'Dr. Strange'

11 March 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The world of comic books brought to life on the big screen has gone surgical as the headlines are filled with news of classic comic "doctors" and the people that may play and/or direct them. Beginning with Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot at Fox. We already know Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell will play the titular "fantastic" heroes, but who will be their nemesisc Apparently the plan is to bring back Doctor Doom, the character previously played by Julian McMahon (remember himc), and The Wrap reports Sam Riley (Control), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Domhnall Gleeson (About Time) are the four actors in contention for the role. I'm sure we'll have some news soon enough as Fantastic Four will begin production shortly, targeting a June 19, 2015 release. In other "Doctor" news, when we last heard »

Sinister Director Up for Doctor Strange

11 March 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last month we learned that Marvel was looking at directors to develop their big screen adaptation of Doctor Strange. Today we have a new name to add to that list. According to THR's Borys Kit, Sinister director Scott Derrickson is also in the running! Derrickson is a talented director, and I actually wouldn't mind seeing him develop this project. He might just be my favorite director in the running now.

It was previously revealed that they were looking at Mark Andrews, who co-wrote and co-directed Pixar's BraveNikolaj Arcel, who wrote and directed 2013s best foreign film Oscar-nominated entry A Royal AffairDean Israelite, the director of Paramount's upcoming time-travel movie Welcome to Yesterday; and Jonathan Levine, the director of the Zombie rom-com Warm Bodies.

If Derrickson is ready and willing to do it then Marvel should end their search and hire the guy! Doctor Strange has to have an eerie feel to it, »

'Doctor Strange' Short List Down to Three Directors

11 March 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The search to find a director for Marvel's Doctor Strange is reportedly down to just three names. Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) and Mark Andrews (Brave), who were listed as contenders in a report from last month, are still on the short list, along with Scott Derrickson (Sinister), according to The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit.

Doctor Strange update: Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Exorcism of Emily Rose) also in the mix to direct the movie.

Being told Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) still on the shortlist.

Just a few days after the original story broke in February, Kevin Feige revealed that the directors listed in that report were not accurate, which also included Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday). The producer did confirm that they were looking at a number of different filmmakers though, but it »

Sinister Director Scott Derrickson in the Running to Direct Doctor Strange; Jonathan Levine and Mark Andrews Still in the Mix

11 March 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A few weeks ago, we reported that Mark Andrews (Pixar’s Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), and newcomer Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all in the mix to direct Marvel’s Doctor Strange.  It’s a diverse bunch of directors, and now one more name is joining their ranks: Scott Derrickson.  Derrickson mostly has a horror background.  His previous credits include Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Hellraiser: Inferno, and he recently directed the supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil. However, he does have a big-budget feature to his name having directed the 2008 remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Hit the jump for more. In addition to reporting on Derrickson being in the mix for the directing gig, THR writer Borys Kit also tweeted, “Being told Mark Andrews (Brave), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies) still on the shortlist,” so I’m wondering if »

DVD Review: 'Age of Uprising'

10 March 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Following the runaway success of Danish director Nikolaj Arcel's A Royal Affair (2012) a couple of years back, another period European drama of revolt and revenge starring the magnetic Mads Mikkelsen would undoubtedly have seemed like an excellent idea. Somewhat regrettably, Arnaud des PallièresAge of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas (2013), adapted from the Heinrich von Kleist novella, not only fails to live up to the mark but struggles to work on a more fundamental level. Even the presence of the venerable leading man fails to elevate this glossy but staid vengeance drama that repeatedly struggles to either quicken the pulse or provoke the mind.

Marvel's Kevin Feige debunks Doctor Strange director shortlist and Johnny Depp casting rumour, talks Guardians of the Galaxy

26 February 2014 3:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, a report emerged suggesting that Marvel Studios had identified four potential directors for the long-awaited Doctor Strange movie in Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), seemingly indicating that the Sorcerer Supreme is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe as part of Phase Three. However, Marvel chief Kevin Feige has now dismissed the report during an interview with IGN, although he does admit that the studio is meeting with people about the movie:br />

"Well, that article was true that we're meeting a lot of people now. That article was not true about who we're meeting or what level anybody is. But we're actively looking. Of course, of course. We always look at a wide range of people with a wide range of backgrounds. There's only one criteria: do something that we think is really cool. [Laughs] That's about it. »

'Doctor Strange' Director Update from Marvel President Kevin Feige

25 February 2014 1:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Who will direct Doctor Strange? Last week, we heard that Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) were all in contention. Today, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige reveals that isn't quite accurate. While he does confirm Marvel and Disney are currently on the hunt for someone to helm this upcoming superhero adventure, none of the names mentioned were close to signing on, and some may not be in the running at all.

"Well, that article was true that we're meeting a lot of people now. That article was not true about who we're meeting or what level anybody is. But we're actively looking.

Marvel's Doctor Strange: Who Should Play the Role?

25 February 2014 6:33 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

While it has yet to receive an official release date, last week Marvel Studios decided to move forward in finding a director for its oft-speculated Doctor Strange movie. THR reported that Marvel had compiled a shortlist of directors that included Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies), Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (last year's Oscar–nominated A Royal Affair) and Dean Israelite (the upcoming Welcome to Yesterday). It didn't take long for casting rumors to start trickling in, with Hannibal and A Royal Affair star Mads Mikkelsen recently being rumored to be in consideration, following last month's rumors that Johnny Depp had met with Marvel about the role. Meanwhile The Dark Knight Rises actor Matthew Modine has already begun openly campaigning for the role on Twitter, something Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey has been doing since 2011.

But why wait for Marvel to finally make up their minds? We can figure this out well »

Matthew Modine wants to play Doctor Strange

24 February 2014 10:27 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the Sorcerer Supreme seemingly set for Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, rumours continue to circulate as to who will be playing Doctor Strange, with Full Metal Jacket actor Matthew Modine touting himself as a possible candidate.

On his Twitter page, Modine attached a photo of Strange with a caption, “#Marvel I’d like to play #Doctor Strange - let’s make this happen.” Evidently, he fails to understand the power of subtlety but he would bring an interesting sense of wisdom and experience to a character unfamiliar to many.

Of course, while on the press junket for The Dark Knight Rises, Modine famously slammed The Avengers, declaring “Batman would tear off Iron Man’s head and s**t down his neck.”

Although Doctor Strange is yet to be officially announced, it's been reported that Marvel is meeting with potential directors for the film, with Mark Andrews (Brave »

Hannibal's Mads Mikkelsen Up for Doctor Strange Role?

21 February 2014 12:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Marvel is looking to finally get their Doctor Strange movie into production, and they are currently talking to four potential directors for the project. Bleeding Cool has reported that one of those directors is linked to an actor that the studio is considering for the film. That actor is Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen, and the director is Nikolaj Arcel. They worked together on a film called A Royal Affair

There's no information on what character the actor would play in the movie, but I don't think it's Stephen Strange. I assume he'd be up for a villainous role. The site mentions that they have no idea if the actor is still being looked at, or if he was just in the mix of actors very early on in the casting process. 

I should probably also mention that this wouldn't be the first time that Mikkelsen was up for a Marvel movie role. »

Four directors in contention for Marvel's Doctor Strange, Mads Mikkelsen under consideration for a role?

21 February 2014 8:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While this years Guardians of the Galaxy has been getting all the attention this week [see the trailer, character featurettes and first poster], it seems that Marvel Studios still has one eye on Phase Three, wioth The Hollywood Reporter revealing that four directors are under consideration to bring the Sorcerer Supreme to the screen in Doctor Strange.

According to the site, the studio has met with Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), Dean Israelite (Welcome to Yesterday) and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies). Meanwhile, screenwriters Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger (Kung Fu Panda) are "in the mix" to script the film, although Marvel is apparently keen on getting a writer-director duo, or a filmmaker who can tackle both.

It's expected that Doctor Strange will feature as part of Marvel's Phase Three line-up, alongside Ant-Man, Thor 3, Captain America 3 and The Avengers 3.

Update: According to Bleeding Cool, one of the reasons that Nikolaj Arcel is under consideration is because »

Marvel Lines Up Director Contenders for 'Dr. Strange' Movie

21 February 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Marvel is moving into new comic book territory as they are starting to branch out from the comic characters the majority of the general population is familiar with and looking to create excitement out of less familiar characters. Guardians of the Galaxy will be the first test and Ant-Man will be another, and it could prove to be what reinvigorates superhero films for those of us not at all familiar with the characters and it appears the character that's next in line is Doctor Strange. The Hollywood Reporter brings word Marvel is currently courting directors for a feature film adaptation of the character who apparently is a surgeon that suffers a life-changing car accident and eventually heads to the Himalayas, gains psychic powers and saves the day. I'm sure there's more to it, and I could be way off, but it doesn't really matter right now... does itc As for »
