British cinematographer Peter Suschitzky is known for his collaborations with David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis, A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises, A History of Violence, Spider, eXistenZ, Crash, Naked Lunch and Dead Ringers). His eclectic career saw him start working in fantastical “what if” tales on It Happened Here (1966) and Privilege (1967). He worked with Peter Watkins, Albert Finney, Peter Watkins, John Boorman, Ken Russell and Warris Hussein in Britain, before Hollywood came calling. is first trip to Cannes, working on Charlie Bubbles by Albert Finney, was cancelled after the festival was stopped by the May ’68 protests led by Jean Luc-Godard.

Fans Defend Keira Knightley After 'Begin Again' Director's Unprofessional Slam

30 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Update: Director John Carney tweeted an apology note:

From a director who feels like a complete idiot. pic.twitter.com/vfO8m4U2Hl

John Carney (@jayceefactory) June 1, 2016

Original story:

John Carney needs to take his sinking boat and point it home, 'cause fans are not on his side this time. The director of the amazing musical film "Once" just decided to trash Keira Knightley in an interview with the Independent, singling her out as the problem with his last film "Begin Again," co-starring Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine. He has a new film out called "Sing Street," and while promoting the movie, the Irish director went out of his way to blast the Oscar-nominated actress. So Team Keira came out in force after the interview to blast the director.

Here's part of the interview, which includes the unprompted Keira insults.

How significant was it to make the film in Ireland? »

Horror Highlights: New Chucky Doll, Wizard World & Crypt TV, Mondo’s Cronenberg Vinyls, Screamfest 2016, Shortwave

25 May 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Chucky’s back and better than ever… Mezco Toyz presents their newest Chucky doll based on his likeness in the first Child’s Play movie. Also: Wizard World and Crypt TV’s eight-city video showcase, Mondo’s Cronenberg vinyls, the Screamfest 2016 announcement, and over 10 photos from Shortwave.

Photos of Mezco Toyz’s New Chucky Doll: From Mezco Toyz: “Unlike the scarred and battle-damaged look Chucky normally bears (people have tried to destroy him in six films so far), this version represents the cleaner, earlier Chucky. His trademark outfit is un-slashed, his face is not yet mauled.

Just as he did in his films, Chucky has lots to say from his trademark “My name is Chucky” to far more sinister phrases.

The star of the Child’S Play films, Chucky stands fifteen inches tall and features real cloth Good Guys clothing, eleven points of articulation, his trademark orange hair and realistic glass-like eyes. »

David Cronenberg: Why He’s Considering Retiring From Filmmaking

12 May 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Cronenberg, progenitor of body horror and a favorite of art-house inclined genre fans the world over, may not be at it much longer. That's not entirely by choice, reveals Viggo Mortensen in a Cannes interview with Variety, but rather a sad financial reality: The filmmaker is having more and more difficulty financing his projects. Read More: 'Captain Fantastic' Trailer: Viggo Mortensen Isolates His Family For Love -- Watch Cronenberg directed Mortensen to an Oscar nomination in "Eastern Promises" after first partnering with the actor on "A History of Violence." The two collaborated again for "A Dangerous Method," which also starred Michael Fassbender and Keira Knightley. “I can’t think of another around that long that stays as fresh,” said Mortensen, who's in the South of France with his new film "Captain Fantastic." “It’s ridiculous. Woody Allen makes a movie every year and other directors make whatever they want to. »

Cannes: Viggo Mortensen Talks Trump, David Cronenberg Collaboration

11 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Viggo Mortensen is late. Very late for an interview.

It’s an hour and a half past the appointed time, but when the actor finally calls, he has a very good excuse.

“It was a veterinary emergency,” he explains, apologizing profusely. It seems that his dog recently had an operation and the stitches were “wobbly,” requiring an emergency touchup.

This is the domestic Mortensen. A retiring, but passionate artist, who has chosen to live his life away from the public glare. On screen, he remains unknowable. For over two decades, Mortensen has captivated audiences with his intense performances in a wide variety of roles, no part like the other. He was a swashbuckling Aragorn in “The Lord of the Rings,” a steely Russian mobster in “Eastern Promises,” and a remote and cerebral Sigmund Freud in “A Dangerous Method.” In his latest film, “Captain Fantastic,” which screens Tuesday at Cannes, Mortensen »

10 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In era of continued friction among European Union states, and an upcoming EU referendum in Blighty that may see the country exit the 28-member state in June, Creative Europe’s Media Program has long been a haven of openness and inclusiveness across the creative industries.

There are seven film in Cannes Competition they have tapped Media funding, including Pedro Almodovar’s “Julieta.”

Founded in 1991 by the EU, the Media Program set out to support collaboration and cultural diversity among European audiovisual players in what was, at the time, a fragmented market.

In the past 25 years, Media has invested €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) into film, television and video content across development, promotion and distribution within the continent and beyond.

Michael Fassbender on Finding the Essence of ‘Steve Jobs’

11 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Fassbender has made a career out of portraying real-life characters, from his breakthrough role as Bobby Sands in Steve McQueen’s “Hunger” to Carl Jung in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method.” His mesmerizing turn in the title role of Danny Boyle’s “Steve Jobs” has earned him not only raves but his second Oscar nomination. The busy actor called from the Oslo set of “The Snowman,” just days after wrapping production on “Assassin’s Creed.”

What did you know about Steve Jobs before you took the role?

Pretty much zero, to be honest. Obviously, I knew of the man and his connection to Apple, but not much more than that. Also, I’m sort of crap when it comes to technology and gadgets, so I was pretty green.

Did you learn much from meeting the people who knew Steve?

We were all lucky to meet people like Joanna Hoffman, »

The Notebook is the North American home for Locarno Film Festival Artistic Director Carlo Chatrian's blog. Chatrian has been writing thoughtful blog entries in Italian on Locarno's website since he took over as Director in late 2012, and now you can find the English translations here on the Notebook as they're published. The Locarno Film Festival will be taking place August 3 - 13. Howard Shore. © Benjamin Ealovega Film music is a subject that requires very delicate handling. As if music, more so even than sound itself, had arrived in the cinema with the table laid and the party already begun, requiring it therefore to be a very discreet guest.It makes little difference that we know that the movies – well before they became the talkies – needed musical accompaniment; it makes little difference that film music, whether by pioneering pianists or great composers, has given greater depth to the moving image and developed »

Nicolas Winding Refn Teams With Bond Writers, Liam Neeson is Jaume Collet-Serra’s ‘The Commuter,’ and More

1 February 2016 12:41 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re still all awaiting Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated female-centric horror thriller The Neon Demon with bated breath, but he’s already gearing up for his next movie, which will reportedly have an Asian setting, and feature action and thriller elements. Details are skim, but it’s also been reported that Refn will be teaming up with the primary screenwriters of the last five James Bond films – Neal Purvis and Robert wade. Who knows? Maybe this could just be the ramp-up to an announcement that this will be the next Bond film, or it could be his long-rumored The Avenging Silence.

After last year’s frenetic Run All Night, star Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra are already reuniting for another movie – their fourth collaboration. Collet-Serra will begin work on The Commuter, an action thriller following a businessman who becomes tangled in a criminal conspiracy on his daily commute, »
