Trailer Watch: Mike Newell's 'Great Expectations' Goes Old-School vs. Alfonso Cuaron's '90s Version

16 August 2012 2:14 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Unlike Alfonso Cuaron's contemporary-set "Great Expecatations" (1998), starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke, Mike Newell's version (adapted by "One Day" scribe David Nicholls) is set in the 1860s of Charles Dickens' classic. The first international trailer has arrived (below). Starring Helena Bonham-Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse") and Holliday Grainger ("The Borgias"), the film will debut in Toronto before its UK opening on November 30. No Us release has been scheduled. While Bonham-Carter as Miss Havisham is intriguing, this iteration lacks the movie star ooomph of Paltrow and Hawke's Pip and Estella (but that didn't help with critics: it was 38% rotten). »

‘Tai Chi 0′ Trailer Premieres

15 August 2012 10:21 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I hadn’t even heard of this film until Michael picked it as a film he thought might play Fantastic Fest this year and since that post was published, I decided to educate myself. The film sounds like a blast and the trailer definitely proves it as well! Check it out below!

Trailer Synopsis

As an uncommonly gifted child, Yang Luchan had a fleshy abnormality that holds tremendous power growing on his forehead. However, being teased as the town fool, Yang’s mother spurs him to practice martial arts, and following her wishes, Yang travels to the distant Chen Village to learn Tai Chi. At this legendary village everyone practices Tai Chi and uses Tai Chi in every aspect of their lives. Nevertheless, it is forbidden for a villager to disclose Tai Chi to an outsider, which Yang learns the hard way.

Upon arriving at the village, locals discourage Yang by challenging him with fights. »

LatinoBuzz: Interview with El Médico, a rapper, doctor, and star of El Médico: The Cubatón Story, playing at the New York International Latino Film Festival

15 August 2012 4:30 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Raynier Casamayor Griñán is a twenty something year-old doctor who lives high up in the Sierra Maestra mountains of Santiago de Cuba. Known as ‘El Médico’ he serves his community, treating patients at the town clinic and making home visits. But he longs to be a musician, a rapper, a reggaetonero. He’s been making music for years, singing and rapping whenever he gets a chance. As soon as he heard the early songs of the Panamanian, ‘El General’ he knew he wanted to mix reggae, hip-hop and Cuban rhythms--transforming him into one of the pioneers of Cuban reggaetón, known as Cubatón.

Enter two Swedes--Michel Miglis, a music producer determined to make the young doctor an international star and Daniel Fridell, a film director who documented the ups and downs of El Médico’s fledgling music career. Fridell captured everything in his documentary: Michel pressuring El Médico to use sexy ladies in bikinis for his music videos, El Médico’s mother’s disapproving glances, and the euphoria of topping the charts with “Chupa Chupa,” El Médico’s first international single. The result is El Médico: The Cubatón Story, a rollercoaster ride of a film, that takes you on a journey with an artist determined to succeed in spite of various obstacles--set to the thumping bass of the hottest Cubatón and with Cuba’s 

El Médico: The Cubatón Story will have its New York premiere at the New York International Latino Film Festival on Wednesday, August 15. Despite attempts to bring El Médico to New York for the screening, an exit visa was denied for the musician by his home country. So, here’s the next best thing--an interview with El Médico himself. 

El MÉDico: The CubatÓN Story

Director: Daniel Fridell | Cuba, Sweden

Screening at 7:00 Pm | Wed, Aug 15 | Chelsea Clearview Cinemas

Buy Tickets Here

Which would you rather be--a doctor or a musician?

I like to help people as a doctor. In a perfect world I would be able to sing and work as a doctor at the same time.

When did you realize you wanted to be a musician? Do you remember the first time you performed in front of an audience?

I always liked music. I was always singing on the street. When I was studying at the Camilo Cienfuegos military school, there was a show and I was asked to sing. I didn’t know what to sing. But then I remembered Shaka Sankofa. He was an African American on death row in Texas who was executed without real evidence by then Governor George W. Bush. I remembered watching it on television, with my mother. We watched his friends and family cry, it was very touching and at the same time made me angry. I started to write a song about it and the words found themselves on the paper.

So at my very first performance I sang the first song I wrote, about Shaka Sankofa. First, I thought that nobody liked it. After my performance everybody was quiet. Then, suddenly, everybody stood up and applauded and shouted the last words of the chorus “negro sigue adelante”, “black people keep on moving forward”. It was very touching.

What kind of music did you listen to when you were growing up? Who are some of your musical influences?

My parents listened to Salsa, Son Cubano, and American Rock and Roll. I was very influenced by Jamaican musicians like Bob Marley and Jimmy Cliff and also Cuban Conga. There are many Merengue bands that influenced me and some American hip-hop artists like Tupac and Biggie. If I had to just name one it would have to be Compay Segundo.

Explain how you met and started working with your Swedish musical producer, Michel Miglis.

I was working at my medical clinic, doing my social service for el Comandante, up in the Sierra Maestra mountains. One day a tourist, Michel, showed up. He said he had heard a tape of my music in Havana and wanted to make music with me. I did not want to work with this guy at first.

Back in 2003, a producer from the Emi record company came to Santiago and made music with a lot of local artists. He promised us fame and fortune but left Cuba without giving us anything. Later, I found out that they sold our music all over the world, even in the United States. They never gave any Cuban artists a dime. So I was scared. But, then I thought to myself: “This crazy guy came here, walking for many hours, carrying his recording stuff and wants to make a song in the middle of nowhere, in the mountains, why not give it a try? It won’t take too much effort.”

I had many seriously-ill patients in the clinic that weekend.  A child and an older woman caught Dengue so I had to make Michel wait. But, the next day I sat in front of his microphones and wrote the song “Chupa Chupa.”  And to my surprise, two months later, the song went on to be a hit all over the world. Every week, I would meet tourists who had heard the song in discotheques and in clubs in Israel, Jamaica, Canada, Italy and Japan. It was crazy.

Your song, “Chupa-Chupa” was included on the album "Cubatón, Reggaetón a lo cubano" with other Cuban artists like Candyman, Cubanito 20-02, Klan Destino y La Familia. It reached the top ten in Spain. How did everyone around you react to the news?

I heard the news from a Spanish tourist. I was very happy, my friends were very supportive. It was very big news in Cuba. No Cuban artist had reached the top of the charts for many years. My mother did not like it. For her it meant less of a focus on my work as doctor.

Your music had already been very popular inside of Cuba - did it feel different to know that people outside of Cuba were listening to your music too?

Of course it was nice have an international hit, but it was hard to know that these people in other countries liked my music. I wanted really badly to go there to perform, to meet them, to see them.

How did you meet the film’s director, Daniel Fridell? What did you think when he asked you to be in his documentary?

He was introduced to me by my then producer, Michel. Well, it was kinda exciting to be in a film. A actual film that was all about me. But, at the same time scary, what would my mother think? What would my friends think? What would my patients think? Also, could I trust these guys? So many foreigners come to Cuba and take photos, make films and music and when they leave you never hear of them again. Another thing that was important was, how were they going to portray Cuba? It is so easy to generalize and say we are good or bad or the cliches: the beautiful and happy but poor people.

But, then again you must ask yourself what is poor? And what is happy? People who visit Cuba see the facades of our broken-down deteriorating houses, but they don’t see the inside. Tourists see our smiling faces, but they don’t hear our inner voices. Cuba is very very complicated, multifaceted and very very special. I love Cuba, and didn’t want to be part of something that created a bad image of my people. But, after a while, I realized that these guys also loved Cuba. That, I think, was the point that made me trust them fully.

Your mom is a big part of the film. She wants you to be a doctor and does not approve of the sexy music videos. Has she seen the film? Does she feel differently about your music since seeing the film?

She was very suspicious, she still is. It was a very, very, very long process. We started shooting the film a long time ago. Five years later, she accepts my singing career a little bit more, but not totally.

Have you seen the film? What did you think about it? Is there anything you would change about the film?

I like it, I am proud of it. But, I would put some more songs from me in there.

Are you recording new music?

I write a new song every day. Santiago de Cuba inspires me every day, in every which way, and I come up with new material.

In the film - you say that, in Cuba, you don’t need to use sex to sell music. Michel constantly pushed to have female dancers who are wearing very little clothes be in your music videos. Has this changed with your new music? Are you still working with Michel?

Many people use sexy dancers here too. Even Cuban producers push that. But, I prefer sensuality, not selling out. If you use only sex, you’re probably trying to cover up that your music isn’t very good. I do my own thing now, more influenced by Conga, African roots, and Merengue. The images for my new stuff will come out of the music and not out of the marketing mind.

Listening by Nellie McQuinn – Tristan Bates Theatre Review

15 August 2012 12:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Listening is a profound piece of theatre currently on at the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe Festival until the 18th of August. Written and performed by Nellie McQuinn, it is a one woman play about a terrorist attack which occurs on an underground in an unknown city. McQuinn wrote the piece to pay homage to a friend she lost in a similar attack. For me, McQuinn nailed it and gave a performance which was so heartfelt that she left me feeling both moved and absolutely stunned.

The set design was minimal but really didn’t need much more than what was on stage. The back wall of the black box theatre is set with posters of victims with the word “missing” written above their photos much like the gates which surrounded Ground Zero after 9/11. There is also a hospital bed and a chair. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger shocked by movie return

Arnold Schwarzenegger surprised himself by returning to movies. The former Governor of California thought he would never make another movie after his stint in politics but was shocked when he had 'the greatest time' on the sets of 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2'. He told Bang Showbiz: 'When I was governor I would visit movie sets to thank people for shooting in California because it's good for the economy.

LatinoBuzz: As Networks Struggle to Appeal to Latinos, the New York International Latino Film Festival Doesn't

14 August 2012 5:54 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Just a few days ago, The New York Times highlighted English-language television’s failure to attract Latino audiences in an article called  “ NetworksStruggle  toAppealtoHispanics”.  As the fastest growing demographic whose purchasing power exceeds $1 trillion, it’s no surprise that, “...they desperately want to appeal to the more than 50 million Latinos in the United States...” What is hard to believe, though, is that they still haven’t figured out how to do it. It’s really not that difficult. We want to see true-to-life characters that reflect the diverse experience of Latinos, not stereotypes.

In response to the Nyt article Esther Cepeda, NBC Latino Contributor, says it well, “...give the maids, bad boys and victimized immigrants a rest. Yes, those are real-life characters, but there’s no reason why art can’t imitate a diversity of life...How about casting Latinos as up-and-coming-politicians, overachieving college students, folksy-vegan-all-organic environmental activists, or the overscheduled suburban soccer mom-slash-superstar mommy blogger?” I would totally watch that show!

Maybe the execs should take advice from people like Cepeda. Better yet, they should hire people like Cepeda! But, instead of hiring bilingual and bicultural Latinos and Latinas to write, produce, and direct TV shows, American television executives run focus groups, spend money on market research, and scratch their heads--dumbfounded and unable to solve the conundrum. Meanwhile, other organizations have it figured out.

Year after year--the New York International Latino Film Festival packs Manhattan theaters with bilingual, bicultural Latino moviegoers. The very same demographic that TV execs and movie studios are clamoring to attract but fail to. Why is it that the entertainment industry’s most sought after group of consumers attends  this festival by the tens of thousands? Because, the stories they see are diverse, complicated, new, different, multilingual, and reflect their own experiences. Television and studio executives might benefit from coming to the festival and taking some notes. These are the true-to-life kind of stories Latinos want to see on their T.V. and movie screens (and on their computer screens too.)

Chained | Review

14 August 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A Jennifer Lynch film never fails to polarize audiences. 1993′s Boxing Helena was widely panned by critics and avoided by filmgoers, but a small cult audience – including a few cinema scholars – found much to like about the story of a man and his quadruple-amputee hostage. Surveillance, Lynch’s 2008 followup, was even more divisive. This dark and violent film about differing points of view of a highway slaughter in a small town was either loathed or adored by critics and audiences alike, although the divide was a little more even than in 1993. Lynch’s films will never receive middle of the road reactions, and her latest, Chained is likely to follow along the same response.

Michael Urie on "Partners" and Celebrity Sexuality

14 August 2012 8:29 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Take some established TV actors with impressive track records, borrow generously from the real-life gay/straight alliance of the creators (who just happened to create a long-running ground-breaking sitcom), throw a hunky former Superman into the mix and you’ve got the ingredients of CBS’s new sitcom Partners.

In the series, which premieres on September 24th, Louis (Michael Urie, Ugly Betty) is the lifelong best friend of Joe (David Krumholtz, Numbers) and the two are partners in an architecture firm. Louis has a boyfriend in Wyatt (Brandon Routh, Superman Returns and Chuck) and Ali (Sophia Bush, One Tree Hill) is Joe’s girlfriend. The lines between all these relationships cross and get tangled providing (hopefully) enough laughs to be on the air for a long time. The series is created and inspired by the real-life friendship of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, who created Will & Grace.

‘Great Expectations’ International Trailer & Images: Dark Take on the Dickens Classic

13 August 2012 6:06 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Filmmakers have been adapting Charles DickensGreat Expectations in some form since 1917, so what’s the harm in one more, right? In the 2012 version, Jeremy Irvine abandons the wide-eyed innocence he bore during War Horse in order to portray the hardened orphan Pip as a young man, opposite Holliday Grainger (The Borgais) as the cold-hearted object of his affections, Estella.

This new interpretation of Great Expectations has much in common with Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre – judging by the international trailer for the former, it’s as gorgeously morose and hauntingly dark as the latter. Moreover, the two films are based on source novels regarded as classic examples of Victorian literature at its gloomiest (outside the horror genre, that is).

Great Expectations (2012) comes from screenwriter/author David Nicholls (Starter for 10, One Day) and director Mike Newell – the latter ...

"ParaNorman" Movie Review

Focus Features and Laika, the companies behind the Academy Award-nominated animated film .Coraline,. return with another stop-motion flick called .ParaNorman.. It.s an animated wonder that perfectly blends comedy and thriller with just enough dash of sweetness.

Meet Norman Babcock (voiced by Kodi Smit-McPhee of .Let Me In. and .The Road), an 11-year-old outsider who sees dead people. He is gifted with the ability to see and speak with the dead such as his beloved grandmother (Elaine Stritch). But in the eyes of the living, he is cursed.

It.s hard for Norman to fit in. At home, his father (Jeff Garlin) is not supportive, his mother (Leslie Mann) is clueless, and his older sister, Courtney (Anna Kendrick), is utterly superficial. At middle school, Norman is constantly taunted by Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), the school bully.

Norman.s one and only friend is the impressionable Neil (the funny Tucker Albrizzi). One day, »
