Lionsgate U.K. Opens Its Purse For Passion Projects

29 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate U.K.’s increasing focus on investing in British movies to fill a major part of its distribution slate, alongside third-party acquisitions and titles from Lionsgate and Summit in the U.S., makes commercial sense, says Nick Manzi, head of production and acquisitions at Lionsgate U.K.

“There is an audience in this country for British films,” he says. “Every country wants to see stories about themselves, and we are lucky because we share the same language as America, so these films can travel — if you get them right.”

The aim is to give a wide release to the majority of its movies. “We look for stories that resonate with a broad audience,” he says. But Manzi warns that the distribution market has changed. “We are finding that there’s no in-between — there’s no middle ground. Films either work or they don’t.”

Lionsgate U.K. at 10: Market-Savvy Distributor Turns Film Angel

29 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

British movie distributor Lionsgate U.K., which was acquired by its Hollywood parent 10 years ago, has always prided itself on its independent and entrepreneurial spirit, and on its support for Brit filmmakers.

“We are passionate about British movies,” CEO Zygi Kamasa says.

The company had previously been known as Redbus Film Distribution, which was co-founded by Kamasa in 1998. An early success was “Bend It Like Beckham.” Recent investments have included “A Little Chaos” and “Brooklyn.” The company has an eclectic taste, embracing Rosamund Pike/David Tennant comedy “What We Did on Our Holiday” and kids’ animation film “Postman Pat: The Movie.”

Kamasa sees his relationship with producers as collaborative; Lionsgate U.K. contributes notes at script stage and market-tests films heavily during post-production. Paul Webster, who produced “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” “Hummingbird” and “Locke” with Lionsgate U.K.’s backing, says: “By being our local U.K. partner and coming in at the inception, »

Everest Visual Soundtrack Preview From Oscar-Winning Composer Dario Marianelli

17 September 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Varèse Sarabande will release the Everest – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD September 18, 2015.

The album features the original music composed by Dario Marianelli (Atonement, The Boxtrolls). The score is great and it’s what makes the movie even more intense!

“My initial instinctive approach to the score, which our director, Baltasar Kormákur, liked and encouraged me to follow, was to have a calling voice, a distant siren call,” explained Marianelli.  “It is at the same time a voice that represents the ancient goddess-like mountain, but also a luring and irresistible calling to one’s own destiny.”

Marianelli’s musical “siren call” was performed by singer Melanie Pappenheim. “The same tune that I wrote for Melanie was also played by two wonderful string players in many variations—Caroline Dale and David La Page, with whom I also have worked on several other movies,” he said.  “There were also moments »

Everest movie review: peak experience

14 September 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A spectacular, heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock. See it in IMAX 3D for an enrapturing you-are-there feeling. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is the kind of movie movies were invented for: big, visceral, and intense, a heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock as it takes you places most of us will never get to so as to engage in the sort of life-threatening thrills that, paradoxically, remind us that we are alive. That’s an argument that safety-minded homebodies like me scoff at when risk-takers make it, but Everest makes you understand it deep in your gut.

And this is true even though Everest is the story of what had been the deadliest climbing season on the mountain until the 2014 and 2015 avalanches. »

The Oscar-nominated goddess Kristen Wiig stars in this weekend's new release "Welcome to Me," about a woman who wins the lottery and uses her earnings to fund her own talk show. Perfect premise. Wouldn't you do the same? To celebrate, let's pick Kristen's 10 greatest and funniest non-"SNL" moments. Unsurprisingly, there were dozens to choose from.  1. Kristen and Bill Hader board the Starship in "Skeleton Twins" Lip-syncing is now an industry, but Kristen and Bill Hader were ahead of the trend with this spirited, weird-ass rendition of "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now." 2. That Golden Globe introduction with Will Ferrell Kristen and Will Ferrell introduced the Best Actress, Drama nominees at the 2011 Golden Globes, and their improvised version of synopses was hilarious.

Who are the stars of tomorrow in TV, film and theatre?

Digital Spy presents its predictions for 2015 - in no particular order, here are seven young actors, writers, comedians and musicians who look destined to make an impression on the world of entertainment this year.

1. Billy Howle

After graduating from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in 2013, Billy Howle quickly landed television work in Channel 4's New Worlds and on ITV's Vera.

But the young actor first came to our attention last year with his powerful performance as the troubled James in sorely underrated countryside thriller Glue.

Next up for the talented Howle is a plum role in BBC One's adaptation of Laurie Lee's Cider with Rosie, which is due to be broadcast later in 2015.

2. Hannah Britland

A graduate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Hannah Britland launched her television acting career with early roles in Misfits and Skins. »

Teaser Trailer + On-set Report for Egyptian Human Organ Trafficking Thriller 'The Cat'

5 January 2015 8:20 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

A film that's high on my to-see list this year is Egyptian auteur Ibrahim El Batout's latest - a Cairo-set action thriller titled "El Ott" ("The Cat" in English), which centers on the very topical matter of human organ trafficking in Egypt. In short, Egypt’s recent political upheavals, which left a temporary law enforcement gap in the country, reportedly allowed what have been called mob-led organ-trafficking rings to thrive. Amr Waked ("Salmon Fishing in the Yemen") is producing and starring in the film. He's joined by Palestinian actor Mohammad Bakri, Egyptian actress-model Sarah Shaheen, and Egyptian actor Salah Al Hanafy, who »
