11 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Amour director’s next film will revolve around a bourgeois European family.

Michael Haneke’s long-time producer Margaret Menegoz of Les Films du Losange has launched the Austrian director’s next film, Happy End, at the Efm and confirmed it will shoot in northern France this summer.

“We’re pleased to work again with our usual partners X Filme and Wega Film,” said Menegoz. “It will be an ensemble shot in French. It’s the first time Michael Haneke will shoot in provincial France.”

It will be Haneke’s first film for theatrical release since his Oscar and Palme d’Or-winning Amour, which grossed $34m worldwide.

12 Actors Nominated for an Oscar After 60

11 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Oscar records are broken every year, especially among actors with many benchmarks relating to an actor’s age. In 2013, Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”) broke a new record becoming the oldest nominee in the lead actress category at 85. Meanwhile, Quvenzhané Wallis (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”) appeared alongside Riva as the youngest ever nominated at 9 years old. Here are some more record breakers featuring actors who received acting nominations after the age of 60! Gloria Stuart, “Titanic” (1997) (87 years, 221 days)Stuart holds the title as the oldest actor ever nominated for an Oscar. She received her single nomination in the supporting category at 87 for the James Cameron disaster epic, “Titanic.” Playing Rose DeWitt Bukater, Stuart narrates the film in the modern day detailing of her character’s experience and romance on the ship, as portrayed by Kate Winslet in flashbacks. Stuart ultimately lost the Oscar to Kim Basinger for “L.A. Confidential.” However, “Titanic »

Mikros Image Developing New ‘Asterix’ Movie (Exclusive)

28 January 2016 2:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Confirming its status as a driving force on France’s animation scene, Mikros Image Group, the Paris and Montreal-based animation/VFX house, is working on a new “Asterix” animated feature project that follows up its 2014 hit “Asterix: The Mansion of the Gods.” Details are being kept under wraps but the movie is once again expected to be directed by Louis Clichy – who worked as an animator on Pixar’s “Wall-e” and “Up” – and Alexandre Astier, “Mansions’” screenwriter.

Produced by M6 Studios and distributed in France, and sold abroad by Snd, “Mansions” sold 3 million tickets – about  $24 million in gross box office – in France from a Nov. 2014 bow.

The group’s Montreal operation – that delivered “Mune” and “The Little Prince” in 2015 – is also working on two further animation movies: a yet undisclosed toon feature and  “Sahara,” directed by Pierre Coré and produced by La Station Animation.

Oscars: Rookies Crack Race for Foreign-Language Film

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

In the delicate art of list-making, sometimes a slight trim can make all the difference. When the pre-nomination shortlist for the foreign-language film Oscar was announced in December, complaints were heard in many quarters not about the collective quality of the selections, but about what a Euro-centric group it was. Seven of the nine films came from European Union member states — Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary and Ireland — with only Jordan’s “Theeb” and Colombia’s “Embrace of the Serpent” representing the planet’s remaining territories.

Needless to say, the Academy’s foreign-language category was never intended to be a U.N. Assembly; members should vote with their hearts, not their atlas. But the Euro bias was nonetheless disappointing in a year that saw a flurry of creative energy in Latin American cinema — Colombia’s entry representing the crest of a wave that included Brazil’s “The Second Mother, »

A Never-Before-Seen Age Difference in this Year’s Best Actress Race

19 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

One of the tightest races in this year’s Oscar season is that for the best actress statuette. There are past winners such as Cate Blanchett, who earned a best actress Oscar for Blue Jasmine in 2014 and a best supporting actress award for The Aviator in 2004, and Jennifer Lawrence, who won best actress in Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, previous nominees like Saoirse Ronan, who earned a best supporting actress nom for Atonement in 2008, and first-time nominees Brie Larson, who plays a young mother held captive in Room, and Charlotte Rampling, who plays a wife whose 45th wedding anniversary is upended by the arrival of a mysterious letter in 45 Years.

The most interesting factoid about this year’s best actress race, however, is the disparity in age between the competitors. Three of the five women are aged 26 years or below, with Ronan at 21, Lawrence at 25, and Larson at 26 while Rampling, »

'Amour' star Emmanuelle Riva joins Icelandic thriller 'Alma'

18 January 2016 3:22 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Nordisk Film & TV Fond backs five new projects including a thriller starring Emmanuelle Riva.

Amour’s 88-year-old Oscar-nominated actress, Emmanuelle Riva, has joined the cast of Icelandic thriller Alma, the comeback film for director Kristin Johannesdottir, whose last feature was 1992 Cannes selection As In Heaven.

Alma is the story of a woman imprisoned in a forensic psychiatric unit for murdering her lover (even though she has no recollection of the crime). After seven years behind bars, she discovers her lover is still alive and escapes to kill him for real.

Newcomer Snæfriður Ingvarsdóttir, daughter of Ingvar E. Sigurðsson (Jar City, Of Horses and Men), plays the title role and the cast also features Hilmar Snær Guðnason (101 Reykjavik) and Kristbjörg Kjeld (Of Horses And Men). 

Alma – set for delivery early 2017 — is co-produced by Iceland’s Pegasus Pictures, with France’s Arsam Film International, Sweden’s Little Big Productions, the UK’s Berserk Films, in collaboration »

On image: "People’s perception of you is strange and makes me laugh. I think it is associated with the roles you do …” Photo: Richard Mowe

As one of France’s most revered and prolific actresses, Isabelle Huppert never seems to stop working. Last year, at 62, she was in Cannes with two films - French director Guillaume Nicloux’s Valley Of Love (released on DVD and Blu Ray release next month) and Norwegian Joachim Trier’s Back Home (also known as Louder Than Bombs), both made in English. Nicloux’s film reunited her with Gérard Depardieu after almost two decades as parents mourning the death of a son while in Trier’s film it is about how her husband (Gabriel Byrne) and two sons cope with her death as a war photographer. She will appear with her Amour co-star Jean-Louis Trintignant in the new Michael Haneke project about Calais migrants. »

Through the Looking-Glass…Top 200 Most Anticipated Films of 2017: #1. Michael Haneke’s Happy End

15 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Happy End

Director: Michael Haneke

Writer: Michael Haneke

In mid-2015, Michael Haneke officially confirmed he would be abandoning a project known as Flashmob and focusing on different film to be set in France. As usual, the auteur was rather terse as concerns details on either endeavor. In October, while being honored at the International Film Festival of Morelia, Isabelle Huppert (who has starred in three Haneke productions, The Piano Teacher, Time of the Wolf and Amour) announced she’d be re-teaming with Haneke for a fourth time. Finally, major news broke on the project the last week of December with the news of Amour star Jean-Louis Trintignant joining Huppert in Haneke’s Happy End. Plot details are still unconfirmed, but the focus of the film will be the notion of family while migrants will serve as a subtext.

Cast: Isabelle Huppert, Jean-Louis Trintignant

A Look at the 2015 Best Picture Nominees

15 January 2016 9:27 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The 2015 Oscar nominations have been announced with The Revenant leading the way with 12 nominations followed by Mad Max: Fury Road with ten. After crunching some numbers we've taken a look at how this year's crop of Best Picture nominees stacks up to prior, pre-nomination box office totals. Have a look at what we found after comparing this year's eight Best Picture nominees to 190 previous Best Picture contenders, going back 33 years to 1982. Note: Before reading on, please be aware this article is specifically comparing pre-nomination grosses (not adjusted for inflation) unless otherwise noted. To begin, Room is the sixth lowest grossing Best Picture nominee (pre-nominations) in the last 33 years with $5.1 million. The five lower grossing films are American Sniper ($3.3M), Letters from Iwo Jima ($2.5M), My Left Foot ($2.1M), The Dresser ($562k) and Amour ($371k). In fact, Room will likely end up as one of the top ten lowest grossing Best »

6 Silver Linings to the Oscar Nominations: From ‘Mad Max’ to Charlotte Rampling

14 January 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Do you think we ever really do see beyond those things … the surface of things?” The announcement of this morning’s Oscar nominations couldn’t help but remind me of the words of Raymond Deagan, the suburban gardener played by Dennis Haysbert in “Far From Heaven.” In his gorgeously crafted 2002 homage to the films of Douglas Sirk, Todd Haynes used the very language and iconography of 1950s Hollywood to expose the cracks in the veneer of our ostensibly more enlightened era — and to suggest that, in terms of confronting deep-rooted racism and homophobia, contemporary American society still had a long way to go.

Racism and homophobia are not the subjects of this piece, though not for lack of ammunition. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has already come under fire for not nominating any actors of color for the second year in a row, prompting a depressing reiteration of »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 2: #75-51

12 January 2016 5:49 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, including having films gross »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #70. Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram for the King

8 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A Hologram for a King

Director: Tom Tykwer

Writer: Tom Tykwer

Primarily known for his famed 1998 title Run, Lola Run, which shot actress Franka Potente into international stardom, German director Tom Tykwer’s been involved with a variety of international co-productions since, each seeming to find a minor cult following, such as Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (2006), The International (2009), and most infamously, Cloud Atlas (2012), which he co-directed with Andy and Lana Wachowski (however, we were most impressed with his less discussed return to Germany with 2010’s well performed Three). Now, Tykwer’s adapated David Eggar’s (screenwriter for Away We Go and Where the Wild Things Are) novel, A Hologram for a King, a political allegory set in an up-and-coming Saudi Arabian city. The comedy-drama tells the story of an American businessman who makes a last-ditch attempt to stave off bankruptcy and finally accomplish something big. He wants to »
