Yellow Bird execs launch new production company

1 September 2014 5:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Good Company Films will combine the producers behind The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Lar von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark; three projects already in development.

Anni Fernandez, who stepped down CEO of Sweden’s Yellow Bird last week, has quickly resurfaced as the CEO and producer at new Danish production outfit Good Company Films.

Based in Copenhagen, Fernandez has launched the new company with Vibeke Windeløv, Stinna Lassen and Ole Søndberg.

Windeløv has produced more than 35 titles for directors including Lars von Trier and Susanne Bier and joins the company as executive producer.

Calinos veterans launch new Turkish distributor

1 September 2014 4:33 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Two former executives from Calinos Films have set up a new distribution company, Fabula Films, acquiring all Turkish rights.

The outfit will launch at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

Fabula will be headed by CEO Billur Arikan and VP Alkan Avcioglu, who set up the theatrical division at Calinos five years ago.

At the fast-growing Calinos, they worked on films including The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Raid, Intouchables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Secret in their Eyes, Before Midnight, and Non-Stop.

“Even though it will be our first market under a new company, we will gear up the acquisitions where we left off,” said Gizem Yetim, who will serve as director of acquisitions. “We will continue to look for director-driven projects and arthouse films with crossover potential.”

“We are a very passionate team and we all have similar tastes” Avcioglu said. “We do not care whether the film is arthouse or commercial. If there »

Successful Scandinavians – ‘The Keeper Of Lost Causes’ Feature

1 September 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Both Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Sonja Richter are household names in Scandinavia as well as recognizable faces in the UK with the television series The Killing. They are both on the verge of wider international recognition, and will follow in the footsteps of multiple acting greats. In preparation for the release of The Keeper Of Lost Causes, here is a list of some of the top Scandinavian actors to hit the silver screen.

Stellan Skarsgård

 

Stellan Skarsgård is considered to be a national treasure to the country of Sweden. Although he has acted since 1968, his international breakthrough performance happened in Lars Von Trier’s 1996 film Breaking The Waves. After the release of the acclaimed film, Skarsgård picked up multiple supporting roles in American films such as Good Will Hunting, Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang), and the Pirates Of The Caribbean series in which he played ‘Bootstrap’ Bill Turner.

‘The Calling’ can be read as commentary on contemporary Christianity

31 August 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Calling

Directed by Jason Stone

Written by Scott Abramovitch

2014, USA

Canadian culture has long been a topic of discussion among intellectuals simply because there are those who argue that it doesn’t really exist. Obviously there is a culture that those of us living in Canada experience, but it is difficult to ascribe a distinct Canadian nature to that culture since so much of it is almost directly adopted from our neighbors to the south.

There is one piece though, that does differ significantly between Canadians and Americans, religion. It doesn’t really matter what faith one practices in Canada, it is generally a very private thing. Popular culture is almost universally secular with the exception of the occasional political discussion. But even then, the rhetoric in discussions around abortion, same gender marriage, and physician assisted suicide never reach the same heights that they do in the Us.

19 new images from David Fincher’s Gone Girl

29 August 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Fincher’s having a pretty good – and very productive -- run lately. This year’s Gone Girl, an adaptation of the novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, is the director’s third film in four years (after 2010’s The Social Network and 2011’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). Fincher is also currently producing the Kevin Spacey political drama “House of Cards,” winning an Emmy in 2013 for guesting as director. Oh, and he completely directed the “Suit & Tie” music video with Justin Timberlake and Jay-z.

Yeah, those are some very, very productive four years.

With Gone Girl heading to theatres, we have another chance at seeing how the director does adapting a beloved crime thriller. His The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, based on the novel of the same by Stieg Larsson, was a critical darling. Here’s hoping Gone Girl deserves just as many, if not more, accolades. »

'Gone Girl' Photos; Ben Affleck Says It's the Perfect Date Movie

29 August 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the exception of a couple House of Cards episodes, David Fincher returns this fall with Gone Girl, his first directorial effort since 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is yet another thriller based on a popular novel. This time, the director is adapting the works of Gillian Flynn and he calls it the date movie that will "end 15 million marriages". Star Ben Affleck has a slightly different take on this story of a husband accused of his wife's murder after she goes missing. He, instead, believes it's the perfect date movie.

Check out three new photos featuring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne, as well as Neil Patrick Harris as Amy's ex Desi and Carrie Coon, as Nick's sister Margo. Then read on for more of what Ben Affleck has to say about this dark thriller.

David Fincher Wants You to ‘Dress Normal’ With Gap Clothing (Video)

28 August 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lisbeth Salander is not going to like this: David Fincher, the director of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and the upcoming “Gone Girl,” encourages you to “dress normal” in a new ad for The Gap. The Oscar-nominated film director, who began his career as a music video director, still makes some ads on occasion. The series of black-and-white Gap commercials aim to convince today's youth that a simple outfit is better than anything too flashy — or colorful.

Global Showbiz Briefs: ‘Beloved Sisters’ Gets Germany’s Nod For Oscar Race; BAFTA Sets David Fincher Retrospective; More

27 August 2014 9:12 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

German Films said today that its nine-person jury has selected Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters as Germany’s official submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar race. The film tells the little-known true story of a ménage-à-trois among  Friedrich Schiller and the von Lengefeld sisters, a utopia on the eve of the French Revolution. Florian Stetter, Hannah Herzsprung and Henriette Confurius have the lead roles. “This designation is for me the greatest joy and the confirmation of my work,” producer Uschi Reich said. “What great luck for us all.” Beloved Sisters premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February and hit German theaters July 31 via Senator Film Verleih. Nominations for the 87th Academy Awards will be announced January 15.

Watch: Rooney Mara Helps Two Boys in the Slums in 'Trash' UK Trailer

27 August 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've seen Rooney Mara insult Mark Zuckerberg, struggle with the law in Ain't Them Bodies Saints and take matters into her own hands in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Now she's in the slums of Rio, Brazil in Stephen Daldry's latest film Trash. In what feels like a different take on Danny Boyle's Millions, the story follows two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums who find a wallet amongst the usual garbage at a local dump. But when they learn that their find might belong to someone important and land them a reward, they have to figure out who to trust outside of the corrupt police force. Now a trailer from across the pond has surfaced, and it doesn't look half-bad, uplifting but not cheesy. It's way better than the other trailer. Watch! Here's the UK trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash from Universal Pictures UK: When »

The Keeper Of Lost Causes Review

27 August 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Mikkel Norgaard

Cast: Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Fares Fares, Sonja Richter, Mikkel Boe Folsgaard.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 97 minutes.

Synopsis: Transferred to Department Q, detective Carl Morck is given the task of sorting out cold cases. However, Morck isn’t one to let things lie and sets about cracking the case of a missing politician who is believed to have committed suicide.

With such interest around Nordic noirs and scandinavian crime dramas, it’s no surprise to see yet another popular novel series be brought to the big screen. What is surprising, is that after countless TV shows, this adaptation went the way of cinema rather than going straight to TV. There is nothing we haven’t seen here before, and the film rarely gets a chance to operate outside of its main investigation.

The film is set up rather quickly with a botched police operation resulting in one dead, one paralysed, »

Wade knows his daughter Maggie is succumbing to an infection that will inevitably turn her into a zombie, but he’s hoping his fervent love will keep her human for as long as possible.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Zombie Movie Maggie Acquired by Lionsgate for Early 2015 Release; Will Now Skip Tiff

26 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the more offbeat movies that was poised to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival was Maggie, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a father who struggles to come to terms with the fact that his daughter (Abigail Breslin) is slowly becoming a zombie.  I say “was” because Lionsgate announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the film and, per THR, will be pulling it out of Tiff.  Instead of debuting at the festival, the studio has set a Maggie release date for early 2015, though a specific theatrical bow has not yet been determined.  It's a bit of an odd move to pull the film out of Tiff, and not exactly a great sign if Lionsgate wants to control the flow of reviews for the pic. The Black List script was penned by John Scott 3 and directed by Henry Hobson, with Joely Richardson taking on »

20th Century Fox has released a stark new trailer for David Fincher’s mystery thriller “Gone Girl,” starring Ben Affleck.

The trailer starts with a voiceover from his wife (Rosamund Pike) saying, “This man of mine may truly kill me.”

The trailer makes the case that Affleck’s character has come under suspicion because he’s a liar. “Gone Girl” also stars Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Scoot McNairy and Boyd Holbrook.

It’s the first film for Fincher since “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” although the helmer has directed episodes of “House of Cards” for the small screen.
