Next up is arguably the best-known global Bollywood hitmaker, Shah Rukh Khan, in Happy New Year (see trailer below). Set for day-and-date release on Friday in India, North America, Australia, the UK, UAE and elsewhere, the heist pic reunites Khan with his Om Shanti Om and Chennai Express co-star Deepika Padukone, and Om Shanti Om helmer and Chennai Express choreographer Farah Khan.

Poland Lures Foreign Films as Local Biz Rises

14 May 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You would never guess from the level of international co-productions heading toward Poland that the country remains one of the few in this corner of Europe without cash-back incentives.

Agnieszka Odorowicz, topper at the Polish Film Institute, is justifiably bullish on the rising number of such joint projects — currently at around 40 per year — but has said the lack of sweeteners is an issue that needs to be addressed. But even without them, the institute’s work is clearly reaping rewards.

Since 2005, some 130 production companies have set up shop in Poland, many of them capitalizing on financial support from the Pfi, which administers a film fund created through a tax on television, exhibitors and distribs passed a decade ago. More and more of these new players, the recipients of more than 500 film grants, are partnering with foreigners to the benefit of both parties. In 2014, the institute’s budget was $42 million for development, »

The Lego Movie towers over an all-animation top three

26 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A second weekend adds to The Lego Movie's impressive tally as it retains its top slot above Mr Peabody & Sherman and Disney's Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy

The Lego Movie – review

• Mr Peabody & Sherman – review

• More on the UK box office

The winner

Our compact half-term school holidays always concentrate the minds of UK families, offering rich potential for bonanza box-office over a highly compressed time period. And so it has proved with the half-term just ended: from Friday 14 February to Sunday 23 February, The Lego Movie has taken an astonishing £19.72m in just 10 days of play, an average of nearly £2m per day. Add in the previews from the previous weekend, and the film's tally to date rises to a stonking £21.88m. That's more than the lifetime totals of the two lowest-grossing Pixar films – Cars and Cars 2 – and is also ahead of both Kung Fu Panda pictures from DreamWorks Animation. »
