New Trailer for Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Beguiled’ Heats Up With Sexual Tension in the South

19 April 2017 3:12 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Ahead of its premiere in competition at the Cannes Film Festival and a theatrical release in June, Focus Features have unveiled a new trailer for The Beguiled, the remake helmed by Sofia Coppola. Led by Colin FarrellElle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Angourie Rice, it follows a Union solider who becomes the object of affection for the girls and women of an all-female boarding school in the Antebellum South.

“I had seen the 1971 film with Clint Eastwood and it was such a far-out premise. I loved the girls’ school, southern gothic style and sexual tension in the hot south,” Coppola said at CinemaCon. “The story is just really intriguing and sexy and fun and dark. It takes a dark turn you wouldn’t expect.” As one can tell in the new trailer, the eroticism is on full display for what should be one of the summer’s best films. »

Bad Batch Trailer #2 Gets Weird with Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey

14 April 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Neon has released the second trailer for their upcoming indie thriller entitled The Bad Batch, the second film from heralded indie filmmaker Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night). After a critically-acclaimed debut at the Venice Film Festival last fall, where the writer-director won a Special Jury Prize, and subsequent screenings at the Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest, Neon will release The Bad Batch in theaters this summer. While it may not be a big-budget affair, this low-budget indie seems to have what it takes to become an instant cult classic and a sleeper hit, with a diverse all-star cast.

Neon has debuted this new trailer, which offers new scenes and a glimpse at this crazed ensemble, including a peek at Jim Carrey's Hermit, who is practically unrecognizable. He's seen trudging through the wasteland, wearing sunglasses made out of cardboard. It seems that he's dragging something through the desert, »

Hkiff to celebrate 20 years of post-handover Hong Kong cinema

14 March 2017 3:49 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Event will programme a section of Hong Kong films from the last 20 years, including Infernal Affairs, Election and Shaolin Soccer.

This year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival (Hkiff) will mark the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s handover from Britain to China with a special focus on major Hong Kong movies of the past 20 years.

The section, ‘Paradigm Shift: Post-97 Hong Kong Cinema’, kicks off with films such as Fruit Chan’s Made In Hong Kong and Ringo Lam’s Full Alert from the period immediately after the handover, when local cinema was under pressure with box office declining and the mainland market starting to grow.

It then moves on to landmark titles such as Stephen Chow’s Shaolin Soccer (2001), Andrew Lau and Alan Mak’s Infernal Affairs [pictured] (2002) and Johnnie To’s Election (2005), which all defined Hong Kong cinema in their own way.

FilMart: Sil-Metropole Sets Hong Kong Slate as China’s Cinema Savior

13 March 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sil-Metropole Organization, a Hong Kong-based film production arm of the mainland government, on Monday unveiled a slate of star-studded projects telling Hong Kong stories. All are slated for 2017 release.

Chen Yiqi, chairman of the Sil-Metropole, told Variety that each project was expected to cost upwards of $6.45 million (Hk$50 million) to produce. He said the films will be released simultaneously in Hong Kong and mainland China, and added that Hong Kong stories will bring mainland Chinese audiences back to the cinema.

“China’s film industry needs a greater diversity of stories. We observed that a lot of well-received films in mainland China had strong Hong Kong flavors, or were directed by Hong Kong film makers who brought their unique storytelling to the mainland. We feel that we must keep Hong Kong cinema alive. They are appealing to mainland Chinese audience,” said Chen.

Among the highlights were “Dealer/ Healer,” starring an ensemble »

Who Are the Best Director-Actor Duos Working in Movies Today? — Critics Survey

13 March 2017 11:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “Personal Shopper,” which finds Olivier Assayas re-teaming with his “Clouds of Sils Maria” star Kristen Stewart, who is the best director / actor duo in the movies today?

Mark Harris (@markharrisnyc), Vulture and Film Comment

Every time Matthew Broderick shows up in a movie directed by Kenneth Lonergan, I smile. It might seem an odd choice given that Lonergan has directed just three movies (“You Can Count on Me,” “Margaret,” and “Manchester by the Sea”) in 17 years, and also given that Broderick has played only supporting roles in those films. But Lonergan understands Broderick so well — his haplessness, his beleaguered, flawed decency, »

Berlinale: Chinese Talent Shines at Brilliant Stars Parade

12 February 2017 9:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Xu Haofeng, best-known as the screenwriter on Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster,” which premiered at the Berlinale four years ago, made a triumphant return to Berlin. He was named as best director Sunday night at the inaugural Asian Brilliant Stars event in the German capital for his 2015 film “The Final Master.”

The Asian Brilliant Stars has parallels with the European Shooting Stars promotional concept and is intended to help foreign film industry professionals become more familiar with Chinese talent. Xu, for example, is better known within China as an author of martial art novels. His next film, “The Hidden Sword,” is set to be completed this year.

The awards ceremony, red carpet talent parade, and dinner were held in the historical Silbersaal/Palmenhof building within the Sony Center. Other winners included Jerry Ye, CEO of Huayi Brothers Media, who was named as best producer for “The Wasted Times,” and screenwriter »

Check out the beautiful first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled

9 February 2017 2:38 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

With a name to ring a dozen Hollywood bells every time it’s spoken a new film from Sofia Coppola will always bring a measure of excitement. The last film she produced was the Netflix Holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, which she directed and co-wrote with Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer. Before that she stood in the eye of the Californian fame hurricane with 2013’s The Bling Ring, which followed the languid Somewhere from 2010. Today her new film, The Beguiled, had its first trailer revealed and we’re a million miles from Tinseltown.

The film was adapted by Coppola from Thomas Cullinan 1966’s novel A Painted Devil and Don Siegel’s own cinematic adaptation of the story in 1971 (a film which shares the name The Beguiled). The stage is set in 1863, during the American Civil War, at an all-girls boarding school in Mississippi. An injured Union »

Focus Features has released a compelling first trailer for The Beguiled.

First Trailer for Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Beguiled’ With Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, and Colin Farrell

8 February 2017 9:04 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In most instances, a remake of Don Siegel’s beloved Clint Eastwood vehicle The Beguiled wouldn’t be well-advised, much less an awfully high-ranking entry on our most-anticipated of 2017 list. Then you see it’s helmed by Sofia Coppola and led by Colin FarrellElle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Angourie Rice (a recent stand-out in The Nice Guys), and you probably think, “Okay, yes, let’s get on with this.”

Coppola’s entry into the western genre — perhaps more a second adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s A Painted Devil than journey into Siegel country — is hinted at with a first preview, which gives some glimpse of how she’ll be handling the juicy set-up: a Union solider becomes the object of affection for the girls and women of an all-female boarding school in the Antebellum South.

“I haven’t really done a genre film. It was fun »

Sofia Coppola Heads South in First Images from ‘The Beguiled’ Remake

8 February 2017 7:23 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Update: The first trailer has arrived. Watch here.

Following The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola is returning this year with a highly-anticipated remake of the 1971 Don Siegel thriller The Beguiled. With Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke rounding out the main ensemble, the first images have now arrived ahead of the trailer later tonight.

“I haven’t really done a genre film,” Coppola tells EW, who debuted the images. “It was fun to figure out how to approach that but still [keep the film] in my style, and to have this kind of beautiful, dreamy world that I like — but with a plot!” Shot by Philippe Le Sourd (The Grandmaster), the Civil War-era story follows Farrell as a Union soldier held captive by the Confederates in a girls’ boarding school, where he begins to con his way into their hearts.

Coppola adds, “The main crux of the »

Wong Kar-Wai’s Color Obsession Honored in One Mesmerizing Supercut — Watch

1 February 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Legendary Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai is renowned for his vivid use of color, which the kind folks over at Glass Distortion have made abundantly clear in a sweeping new compilation titled simply, “Wong Kar Wai: Color Obsession.” As the filmmaker’s varied spectrum of bright hues and darker tones splash across the screen, one can see how crucial this colorful aesthetic is to creating the distinct mood and atmosphere for which his films are known.

The Chinese auteur’s obsession with color is well documented, as in this 1998 interview with Bomb Magazine, when he compared “Chungking Express” (1994) to “Fallen Angels” (1995) by discussing both films’ palettes: “Whereas ‘Chungking’ was sunshiny and suffused with bright, lovely daytime colors, ‘Fallen Angels’ is more about neon, and night time, and grunge.”
