Film 2012 is back at last – but too late and not for long; tussling over a title; and when Salles met Senna

Film falls from favour at the Beeb

Jonathan Ross's announcement that he is to host a new, populist film review show on ITV should send shivers down the already frail BBC arts spine. The Beeb's long-running film programme Film 2012 returns this week on Wednesday night, having been off-air for a scandalously long time and missed the year's most important film events, from Cannes, Toronto and Venice, through the summer blockbuster season, to the release of Skyfall. What's the point of that?

The show, hosted by Claudia Winkleman and Danny Leigh (above), has smartly avoided critical ire in the film community by inviting most of the nation's critics on to the show at some point (myself included). But, whatever one thinks of the programme's odd chemistry, it »

Afm 2012: Sales Art Blowout Part 2 - Prisoners, Pompeii, and Hammer's The Quiet Ones

31 October 2012 4:31 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Ready for Part 2 of our Day 1 coverage of Afm happening in Santa Monica, California? Up now we have early looks at Prisoners, Pompeii, and (one I personally can't wait for) The Quiet Ones from Hammer.

Prisoners: Alcon Entertainment's Prisoners stars Hugh Jackman, Melissa Leo, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Paul Dano with Denis Villeneuve ( Incendies ) helming. Written by Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband), the story revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands but in the process runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a hotshot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case.

Pompeii: All right, so this one isn't really horror, but it's directed by Paul W.S. Anderson of Resident Evil fame and has dead crows falling from the sky, a seven-foot tall killing machine known as the Beast of Tartarus, »

Formula 1: Two In A Row For Red Bull at the Japanese Grand Prix

10 October 2012 12:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sebastian is the only driver this season to win back to back races.  That shows you how good a season this one is.  Seven different drivers have won a race compared to last year’s five.  Vettel also managed to win back to back races on four separate occasions last year, whereas this year he is the only driver to manage that feat.  This shows how much more competitive Formula 1 has become.

In other news…

Hamilton is moving to Mercedes next season when they bring back the Turbo engines.  McLaren offered him more money but he still decided to leave.  Lewis will be stepping into the shoes of Michael Schumacher as he announced his retirement from F1.  Will Michael be retiring for good this time?  The young Mexican Sergio Perez will be moving from Sauber to take Lewis’s old seat at McLaren.  I think the partnering of Jenson Button »

The children of the James Bond producers play happy families at the Everything or Nothing premiere, while a student animator prepares to kickstart the London film festival

Family Bond

The Broccolis and the Saltzmans used to play together. So Monday night was a bit of a reunion as the children of the James Bond producers "Cubby" Broccoli and Harry Saltzman gathered again at the premiere of Everything or Nothing, Stevan Riley's doc on the Bond phenomenon.

Despite the squabbles chronicled in the greatly enjoyable documentary, relations are now such that families even got together on stage for an emotional Q&A afterwards. Steven Saltzman, Harry's son, now living in Monaco, could hardly contain his thrill at finally getting to tell his dad's story, although there's more beside that thread in Riley's film. "The thing that nobody knows is that Harry was a spy himself," he told me. "So here was this man, »

Formula 1: A Slick Sebastian Vettel Strikes Again at the Singapore Grand Prix

29 September 2012 5:27 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lewis seemed to have gained his winning ways back, and this could possibly have put him back into championship contention.  Going into the race around the Marina Bay Street Circuit Fernando Alonso had a 37 point lead over Hamilton in the championship and almost had the luckiest Ferrari since the Schumacher era.  Alonso has been the most consistent so far with only one non points finish caused by a certain Frenchman trying to fly a car.  The Frenchman in question, Grosjean, was back to racing after his ban so could he hopefully have some success for a change?  Either way, onto the only night race in the calendar.

 

Qualifying

Speaking of the Frenchman Grosjean, he set the fastest time in Q1 guaranteeing himself a place in Q2 alongside his teammate Raikkonen who also posted an impressive first session time.  Q1 saw the familiar faces of Hrt, Marussia and Caterham dropping out at the first qualifying hurdle. »

Ron Howard (Frost/Nixon, A Beautiful Mind) returns once more behind the camera with Rush, already one of the most anticipated films of 2013.

“Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Danny Boyle is to turn his Olympics opening ceremony spectacle into a feature-length DVD, while film-makers of tomorrow have an opportunity to shine

Olympic movie

Danny Boyle is cutting a feature-length version of his magnificent Olympics opening ceremony. The film will be released on a DVD and will make clear any of the mysteries surrounding the production, which got the Games off to a flier and was watched by a TV audience in the UK of 27 million. It will have all the Boyle trademarks, using the ceremony's music (by Underworld) as well the tunes of Dizzee Rascal and the pop montage that has already topped the iTunes downloads chart.

Boyle has also revealed to me that he will be using the film clips he inserted into the show, which include Ken Loach's Kes and two slices of his film hero, Nicolas Roeg. Boyle told me he "hopes to make things clearer" on the DVD, »

3 New Clips from The Wedding Video with Lucy Punch & Robert Webb

10 August 2012 3:19 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls, Made in Dagenham) returns behind the camera once more this summer with The Wedding Video, a new British comedy led by Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher), Robert Webb (Peep Show), and Rufus Hound (Hounded).

To Raif’s surprise, he finds his once-bohemian brother is marrying into Cheshire’s most socially aspirant family. Saskia’s grandmother, Patricia (Miriam Margolyes) would give Hyacinth Bucket a run for her money and mum Alex (Harriet Walker) has successfully married into life in the ‘Cheshire Set’ — the English ‘Beverley Hills’.

Undefeated Review

3 August 2012 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

What was the best documentary of the last year? That would be Senna, right? Well, not according to The Academy who failed to put Asif Kapadia’s film on even the shortlist for last year’s Best Documentary Feature award (a decision which was arguably a contributing factor behind a change of rules for the category). Senna eventually snagged a well-deserved BAFTA, but on the other side of the pond there was a surprise Oscar-winner in the category in the form of another sports documentary, Undefeated.

But when you consider that the American Football centric doc had the campaigning super-team of the Weinsteins and Sean “Diddy” Combs behind it, is that gong necessarily a mark of quality? Well, quite simply, yes. And an emphatic yes at that. It may be a completely different beast to Senna in regards to its form and the perspective from which it approaches its chosen sport, »

Senna | Blu-ray Review

31 July 2012 4:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Fans of motorsports generally get a bad rap, but not all racing is epitomized by the generic dim-witted redneck Nascar fan, blasting country music and pounding cases of Bud Light. Formula One (F1), the globe-trotting super sport of high speed open-wheel road racing, has a very different audience, and though F1 has never really managed to grasp a major American audience, it is by far the most popular racing series on the planet. If you happen to be a fan of the technical brilliance and utter insanity of F1 racing, you no doubt know the name Ayrton Senna. If not, Asif Kapadia’s absolutely stunning documentary constructed solely of archival footage, Senna, serves not only as an engrossing introduction to the Brazilian driver who is considered by many to be the best to ever live, but triumphs in constructing a masterful rise and fall, complete with heroes and villains, and »

'Rocky' voted greatest ever sports movie by Digital Spy readers

27 July 2012 1:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rocky has been voted the greatest ever sports movie by Digital Spy readers. The poll - run to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics - saw thousands cast their vote in a poll to find their favourite sports film. Sylvester Stallone's 1976 boxing classic secured first place with 18.7% of the votes, ahead of recent documentary Senna and bobsled comedy Cool Runnings.

Rocky, which picked up 3 Academy Awards in 1977, was directed by John G Avildsen and written by its star Stallone. The film centres on a loan shark leg-breaker and semi-pro boxer who's given the chance to fight for the heavyweight title against Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers). Stallone went on to star in five further Rocky movies, the most recent of which was 2006's Rocky Balboa. Ayrton Senna documentary Senna ran Rocky close (more) »
