“A balanced mix of producers, agents, distributors and sales agents from the U.K. film community were invited to submit nominations of their most liked and recommended unproduced screenplays,” explained Alexandra Arlango, development producer for film at Cowboy Films, who compiled the list. »

Ingenious court case: what lies ahead

3 November 2014 1:20 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Ingenious v Hmrc tribunal kicks off today in London.

Ingenious v Hmrc, the case which begins at the Competition Tribunal in Bloomsbury Place London today, marks the culmination of almost a decade of wrangling between the blue chip British media investment company and the Revenue. 

Newspapers have been intrigued by the case because of the celebrity investors involved. David Beckham, Gary Lineker, Jeremy Paxman, Wayne Rooney, David Gower and politician Andrew Mitchell are among the names linked to either Ingenious funds Inside Track or Ingenious Film Partners.

The case is expected to last well into December. It will then take months for a decision to be handed down and whichever side loses is likely to appeal. According to the “Agreed Hearing Timetable” issued in advance of the trial, those being called will include Ingenious founder and CEO Patrick McKenna [pictured] and Ingenious Director Duncan Reid as well as such “expert witnesses” as Jonathan Olsberg and Angus Finney.

First images from Neill Blomkamp’s CHAPPiE leak online

27 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Neill Blomkamp garnered a ton of goodwill (and an Oscar nomination for Best Picture) with his 2009 debut District 9, but his 2013 follow-up, Elysium, didn’t quite live up to its predecessor. Luckily, the director has more original ideas up his sleeve, and has a futuristic comedy called CHAPPiE slated for release in 2015.

The film hits theaters in five months, but no marketing has taken place thus far. That appears to be changing, though, as some new images that presumably come from CHAPPiE‘s first trailer have found their way online…

Chappie tells the story of a gifted adopted son in a strange, dysfunctional family, who happens to be a robot. The film is set for release on March 6th 2015 with Blomkamp directing a cast that includes Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Dev Patel (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Jose Pablo Cantillo »

Tsr Exclusive: ‘Dear White People’ interview with Writer/Director Justin Simien

23 October 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Racial tension in the Obama era is given a sharp analysis in the satire Dear White People, a microcosm of modern America that takes place on a college campus, following the lives of four different students. Elements of identity and power vividly come into play, as black students confront racism at its most ridiculous and grotesque. For example: Troy (Brandon P Bell) is looking to fit in with the leaders of a satire magazine, but has to conform his ideals to do so; Coco (Teyonha Parris) wants to use what she considers to be her black identity to get a reality show contract. Writer/director Justin Simien’s film is a hilarious reflection of a society that still needs to get itself together, regardless of a black president living in the White House.

This film marks the feature debut of Simien, who has previous experience with an online series called “Inst Msgs, »

Full Cast Revealed For The Dad’s Army Movie!

8 October 2014 3:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Growing up, one of my favourite things to do was sit at my grandparents house and tuck down for an episode of the brilliant BBC sitcom Dad’s Army on a Saturday night. Week in. Week out.

Bill Nighy will head up a 2015 version of Dad’S Army as Wilson, along with Catherine Zeta Jones (Rose), Toby Jones (Manwaring), The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison (Pike), Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Danny Mays as (Walker), Bill Paterson (Fraser), Sarah Lancashire , Alison Steadman, Mark Gatiss and Annette Crosbie.

FilmTrack Signs Deals With Participant Media, Open Road Films (Exclusive)

17 September 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Participant Media and Open Road Films have tapped FilmTrack to manage their content rights and other media assets.

FilmTrack offers cloud-based technology that allows television and film companies to more easily track licensing and royalty information. The platform enables companies to see where they’ve pre-sold rights to a particular project, monitor what pieces of content are available for sale in certain regions, and track what they’re owed on a particular licensing pact.

“With any company there comes a tipping point in which Excel or some other homegrown product can’t support the complexity of the business they’re in,” said FilmTrack CEO Jason Kassin. “That’s when they find us. We help them grow their businesses more efficiently.”

Open Road’s films include “The Nut Job,” “Chef” and “Homefront.” Participant has interests in books, digital, television and movies and has backed such projects as “Lincoln,” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel »

Get A Behind The Scenes Look At The Pride Movie

16 September 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Audiences will have their sense of humanity refreshed.”

Actors Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Dominic West, director Matthew Warchus and the filmmakers of Pride discuss the background of this emotional story in the new featurette.

Critics are already cheering the film. “Breakout British hit is a warm, witty triumph,” says Digital Spy.

The Hollywood News writes, “Pride really is a thing of beauty.”

Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story.

It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Movie Review – The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014)

5 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hundred-Foot Journey, 2014.

Directed by Lasse Hallström.

Starring Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Juhi Chawla, Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon.

Synopsis:

The Kadam family leaves India for France where they open a restaurant directly across the road from Madame Mallory’s Michelin-starred eatery.

If we based our pre-conceived notions of India and France on those in Lasse Hallstrom’s The Hundred-Foot Journey, all French women would be impossibly attractive who forage for mushrooms and all Indian men would reach climax as they smelled turmeric. Like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel gone before, The Hundred-Foot Journey exists to feign off boredom on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It’s not going to change the world, in fact it will inevitably be found in the bargain bin of your local Asda within the year.

Having moved from India after his mother was burnt to death following a (coincidental) political uprising, Hassan and his »
