‘Miss Sloane’ Trailer: Jessica Chastain Stars As A Political Lobbyist In Gun Control Drama

13 September 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This past April, Jessica Chastain co-starred in the fantasy action adventure film “The Huntsmen: Winter’s War” and made a guest appearance on the HBO animated series “Animals,” but by the end of the year, she will take center stage in the new political thriller “Miss Sloane.” The film follows Sloane (Chastain), a political lobbyist on the brink of burnout who tries to push gun control measures in America. Its supporting cast features a murderer’s row of character actors: Mark Strong (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Beyond The Lights”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“A Serious Man”), Alison Pill (“Snowpiercer”), Jake Lacy (“Carol”), John Lithgow (“Interstellar”), and Sam Waterston (“Law & Order”).

Arthouse Audit: ‘Hell or High Water’ Makes Splash in Big Cities

14 August 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After one of the best openings of the summer, Texas western “Hell or High Water” could become one of the strongest specialized releases of 2016. This bank robbery and pursuit thriller debuted at Cannes and scored among the best reviews of the year. CBS Films and Lionsgate opted to take the easier commercial route rather than chase awards via the standard September festival rollout.

Late summer has yielded a spate of arthouse successes including strong holdovers “Café  Society” and “Indignation.”

Opening

Hell or High Water” (Lionsgate) – Metacritic: 86; Festivals include: Cannes 2016

$592,000 in 32 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $18,500

A gamble paid off big-time for CBS Films, who acquired this independent Texas story of two struggling brothers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) who rob a bank to save the family farm. Distributed by Lionsgate, “Hell or High Water” debuted well at Cannes. Knowing it had rave reviews, CBS decided to go broader than »

British Movie Moguls Back European Union Membership in Referendum Vote

21 June 2016 10:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some of the U.K.’s top movie moguls, including the producers behind James Bond pics, Hollywood blockbusters and Oscar-winning films, have urged the British to vote to remain in the European Union in Thursday’s referendum. A letter released Tuesday, signed by more than 20 of the country’s most successful producers, claims that E.U. membership has “helped ensure that the U.K. has the fastest-growing creative industry sector in Europe,” generating $123 billion in 2014.

The statement, which is backed by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, “Spectre’s” Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and Working Title duo Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, whose credits include “The Danish Girl,” “The Theory of Everything” and “Hail, Caesar!,” argues that “being in the E.U. means that our feature films, our television programs and our games can travel far more easily across borders because they are not subject to quotas »

Win A Family Four-Pack Of Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Bfg In St. Louis

21 June 2016 7:58 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Bfg (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the Bfg prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the Bfg is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The Bfg brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, »

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »

Former Participant CEO Jim Berk Joins PodcastOne

16 June 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jim Berk, who left Participant Media last year, has joined podcast advertising network PodcastOne as its new CEO.

The appointment was announced Thursday. Berk will replace founder Norm Pattiz in the CEO slot while Pattiz retains his title of executive chairman.

Berk’s tenure included the releases of “Lincoln,” “The Help,” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Citizenfour” and “An Inconvenient Truth” along with the launches of the cause-related digital hub TakePart and the Pivot cable network.

PodcastOne sells advertising for more than 200 podcasts, including shows from Larry King, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Dan Patrick. The company asserts that it generated 1.5 billion podcast downloads last year and works with more than 100 brand advertisers. »

Move over, Maggie Smith. “Downton Abbey” now has two dames. Penelope Wilton, who played Isobel Crawley on all six seasons of the popular British drama, was made a dame — the female equivalent of a knight — by Queen Elizabeth II on Friday. Wilton, a prolific stage actress who has also appeared in films ranging from “Shaun of the Dead” to “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” was honored for her services to drama. Her “Downton” costar — and on-screen rival — Maggie Smith was made a dame in 1990. Also Read: Emmy Contenders: 'Downton Abbey' Stars Joanne Froggatt, Lesley Nicol Talk Show's »

‘Me Before You’ Aims to Take on Hollywood’s Superhero-Heavy Slate

25 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. was counting on two powerful men to storm the box office this year with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but the studio just might find a bigger profit with a much smaller film — one that was written, directed, and produced by women and has a female lead.

Me Before You,” the romantic drama that hits theaters June 3, is an intimate tearjerker strategically placed into a summer schedule full of blockbusters.

The film stars Emilia Clarke — best known as Daenerys Targaryen on “Game of Thrones” — as Louisa Clark, a working-class Brit who takes a job caring for the paralyzed Will Traynor (Sam Claflin, from the “Hunger Games” movies). Despite his initial resistance and their class differences, the two forge a unique bond and end up making signifcant changes in each other’s lives.

The gambit may sound familiar. Such counterprogramming took off two years ago when “The Fault in Our Stars »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley Among 290 U.K. Celebrities Backing E.U. Membership

20 May 2016 12:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Jude Law and Steve Coogan are among 290 actors, directors, writers, musicians and other leading lights of the world of entertainment, the arts and culture calling for the U.K. to remain part of the European Union in an open letter published on British news sites Friday.

Britons vote in a June 23 referendum on whether to withdraw from the E.U., and the letter is the latest effort by those against a “Brexit” to sway public opinion. Polls show the vote too close to call.

Among the other actors signing the letter, derided as “luvvies” by the right-wing Daily Mail, are Helena Bonham Carter, “12 Years a Slave” star Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kristin Scott Thomas, Patrick Stewart and “The Wire” star Dominic West.

The letter states: “From the smallest gallery to the biggest blockbuster, many of us have worked on projects that would never have happened without vital E. »
