World War II Epic Dunkirk Will Bring Together Christopher Nolan And Interstellar Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema

5 February 2016 12:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having already recruited German composer and good-luck charm Hans Zimmer, Christopher Nolan is set to welcome back Swedish cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Let the Right One In, Spectre) for World War II drama Dunkirk.

First collaborating for Interstellar in 2014, Nolan and Van Hoytema’s working relationship was almost born out of necessity, given that the director’s reliable director of photography Wally Pfister – who has served as Dp on every Nolan film since his debut feature film Following – opted to forego the cerebral sci-fi film in favor of directing fellow genre piece, Transcendence.

But considering that Hoyte van Hoytema had by that stage attracted the attention of the Academy through his work on Her and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Nolan landed on a winner. Seemingly keen to keep the ball rolling, The Film Stage reports that the pair will collaborate once again for Dunkirk, swapping futuristic science fiction and wormholes »

Dp Hoyte van Hoytema is Reteaming with Nolan for 'Dunkirk' Next

5 February 2016 12:19 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Good news to report, Nolan fans! Nolan's new favorite cinematographer is coming back to work on his next film. Christopher Nolan is reteaming with Swiss cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema for his next film currently titled Dunkirk, about the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk, France during the early part of WWII. This isn't surprising at all and it's exactly what we expected for this production, but this is the first time we've seen confirmation. The news is from a report on the American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) website via The Film Stage announcing that van Hoytema is a now a member of the Asc (he's also part of the Fsf and Nsc in Sweden and The Netherlands). Hoytema last worked with Nolan to shoot Interstellar. An Asc Award nominee for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which also screened in competition at Camerimage, van Hoytema is currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, »

'Interstellar' Cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema Reteams With Christopher Nolan For 'Dunkirk'

5 February 2016 11:43 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When Christopher Nolan went into outer space for "Interstellar," it was without longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, who had been with the director since "Memento," but turned to a directing career of his own starting with the unfortunate "Transcendence." Nolan's choice to lens his ode to the galactic power of love was Hoyte van Hoytema, who had quite the resumé behind him with "The Fighter," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and "Her." And it seems Nolan was pleased his work on "Interstellar." Read More: Tom Hardy, Kennegh Branagh, And Mark Rylance To Star In Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk' Hoytema has now joined the American Society Of Cinematographers, and in the announcement, it's revealed that he "is currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan." That would be "Dunkirk" (not the official title, but the one being used for now), Nolan's WWII picture »

Christopher Nolan Reteaming With Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema For ‘Dunkirk’

5 February 2016 8:38 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As Christopher Nolan prepares for an early summer shoot of his World War II drama Dunkirk, he’s busy filling out his cast and crew. With composer Hans Zimmer returning, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy are filling out the ensemble and many unknown newcomers are still waiting to be cast. Set to shoot in IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film, many have wondered if longtime collaborator Wally Pfister would return or perhaps he’d reteam with Interstellar‘s Hoyte van Hoytema.

It looks like it will be the latter, as the announcement that Hoytema has deservedly joined the American Society of Cinematographers includes a note that he is “currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, with whom he first collaborated on Interstellar.” Following his work on Spectre, Her, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let the Right One In, and more, we look forward to how he pulls »

Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

Recommended Discs & Deals of the Week: ‘Bridge of Spies,’ ‘Snow White,’ and More

Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home.

Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg)

Tom Hanks has a cold, and he needs to save America. A natural follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln in its immersion into nitpicky political discussion, Bridge of Spies also distinguishes itself with a wittier, frequently downright sarcastic screenplay (mostly courtesy, one imagines, of the Coen brothers), more agile camerawork (the ten-minute opening jaunt through Mark Rylance’s Brooklyn morning has been a justified source of attention), and a different kind of lead »

Harrison Ford, Natalie Dormer, and Anthony Hopkins Are Starring in a Spy Thriller Crucial to Many Future Rounds of Six Degrees of Separation

28 January 2016 7:51 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Did you think Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy had too many lead characters and also too many British spies? You are wrong. Also, this is not the movie for you! Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Dormer, Paul Bettany, and Martin Freeman have joined the cast of Official Secrets, which will apparently be one of those spy movies where you give up on remembering all the characters' names in the first 15 minutes. Based on Marcia Mitchell's book, The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, the film centers on Katharine Gun (Dormer), a British Intelligence officer who leaked information to the press about an alleged Nsa operation to push the U.N. to sanction the invasion of Iraq. Bettany and Freeman will play journalists at the London Observer, while Hopkins will be a retired U.K. general (so basically himself), and Ford will play a CIA agent. Official Secrets starts filming in May. »

Taron Egerton teases new Kingsman 2 villain, says film will have an “international story”

28 January 2016 1:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman 2, the sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s 2015 sleeper hit Kingsman: The Secret Service, is set to begin filming later this year, and while the film will most likely include another eccentric villain and more brutal but comical action, the people behind the production presumably want to surprise viewers the same way they did with the first film, which means information on the project has been few and far between.

However, Taron Egerton, who played the main character Eggsy in The Secret Service and will be returning for the sequel, seems very exciting about the upcoming film and dropped an update while promoting his new movie, Eddie the Eagle, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

During an interview with Collider he said, “With Kingsman, we’re shooting in the summer at present. There’s a script, it’s brilliant. Obviously there’s only so much I can say but what I »

Adam McKay interview: The Big Short, Four Lions & more

Oscar-nominee Adam McKay chats to us about The Big Short, Four Lions, Cabin In The Woods, Ant-Man, screenwriting and more…

I met Adam McKay at some posh hotel, where he’d just done some filmed interviews. As such, when he got to me, he told me he was going to recline on the couch “aggressively”. Which he did. So as the Oscar-nominated director and co-writer of The Big Short made himself comfy, with his film having pocketed a bunch of Oscar nominations, and finally heading into UK cinemas.

I thus began….

You’ve talked to us in the past about there being a purchase point where you commit to a film. That with Anchorman, it was Will Ferrell seeing footage of a sexist 70s real-life anchorman. With The Other Guys, it was a dinner with Mark Wahlberg when you realised he could do comedy.

Yeah, the two »

Tomas Alfredson's 'The Snowman' begins shoot with Michael Fassbender

19 January 2016 9:44 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Universal dates adaptation of Jo Nesbo bestseller, starring Michael Fassbender, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rebecca Ferguson.

Tomas Alfredson’s The Snowman started shooting yesterday (Jan 18) in Oslo, produced by Working Title for Universal.

Universal has dated the release for October 13, 2017.

The film is the hotly anticipated adaptation of Jo Nesbo’s bestselling novel.

Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole, an idiosyncratic detective who investigates the murder of a woman who might be the target of a serial killer who strikes with the first snowfall of the year.

The cast also features Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rebecca Ferguson.

Working Title’s Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan produce alongside Robyn Slovo, and the Swedish producer is Piodor Gustafsson of Another Park Film. Working Title founders Bevan and Fellner acquired the rights to Nesbø’s bestseller in 2011.

In addition to Oslo, the film will also shoot in Bergen and Rjukan (west of Oslo).

Nrk reports that the film assembles the largest crew ever »

The Diary of a Teenage Girl (Marielle Heller)

Writer-director Marie Heller paints an accurate, honest, and vibrant portrait of her young protagonist, Minnie (Bel Powley), in The Diary of a Teenage Girl. With the use of some beautiful hand-drawn animation, an enlightening and funny narration, and Powley’s versatile performance, this is about as intimate as a subjective picture gets. We experience the world as this young girl does. What’s exciting for Minnie feels truly exciting, and »

The Look of Silence (Joshua Oppenheimer)

Calling Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence the year’s finest documentary is not inaccurate; the film certainly deserves that crown. Yet it’s hard not to feel like such a classification does Silence a slight injustice. The film is, after all, an overwhelmingly emotional modern classic. Like Oppenheimer’s 2012 masterpiece The Act of Killing, this stunning follow-up features the actual perpetrators of the Indonesian killings of 1965–66. With shocking openness, these »

The Complete Lady Snowblood (Toshiya Fujita)

A young woman (Meiko Kaji), trained from childhood as an assassin and hell-bent on revenge for the murders of her father and brother and the rape of her mother, hacks and slashes her way to gory satisfaction in turn-of-the-twentieth-century Japan. Rampant with inventive violence and spectacularly choreographed swordplay, Toshiya Fujita’s pair of influential cult classics Lady Snowblood and Lady Snowblood: Love Song of Vengeance are bloody, beautiful extravaganzas composed of »
