Marvel’s visual development supervisor Andy Park has taken to Instagram to share a piece of previously unseen concept art from Captain America: Civil War which depicts Chris Evans’ Cap and Paul Rudd’s Giant Man in battle, revealing that in an early draft of the script Steve Rogers and Scott Lang were originally on opposite sides of the superhero civil war; check it out here…

San Sebastian — One of Spain’s leading producers, Enrique López Lavigne, presented Juan Cavestany and Álvaro Fernández Armero’s “Spanish Shame” at the 65th San Sebastian Film Festival. “Shame” is the first whole series to be screened at the Spanish event and Lavigne is one of Spain’s most international producers having worked on “28 Weeks Later,” “The Impossible” and “Out of The Dark.” The producer is also building a more independent and personal slate with smaller productions such as Cavestany’s “People in Places” and Nacho Vigalondo’s “Extraterrestrial.” “Shame” is his first TV show, produced with Movistar +, but probably not the last. At the festival, Lavigne also participated on a round table on New Agents in the Film Production and Distribution.

HFPA at 75: Meet the Foreign Press
As the voters behind the annual Golden Globes, members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. exert an enormous influence on award season. But who are they? Variety asked five HFPA members to discuss their home territories, and lives on the circuit.

Tina Jøhnk Christensen

(Denmark, member since 2013)

Biggest surprise hit in home territory

The French film “The Intouchables” and the German film “Toni Erdmann” were huge successes in Denmark — both surprisingly so. Also, recently, “Get Out” became a surprising hit in Denmark.

Biggest Hollywood star

The Danes watch a lot of Hollywood films and the biggest Hollywood stars are Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Scarlett Johansson and Viggo Mortensen, who have Danish heritage. But Danes are probably even more interested in Danish stars. Denmark is a very small nation of around five million people, so when Mads Mikkelsen, Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Connie Nielsen and Sidse Babett-Knudsen make it internationally

Naomi Watts: ‘My soul was being destroyed’

At 32, she was unhireable. At 48, she is unmissable. The Gypsy star talks lucky breaks, bad reviews and being in therapy

“Armchair or sofa?” Naomi Watts wonders aloud, trying to decide where to put us both in her London hotel room. The 48-year-old actor has spent a lot of this year and last portraying a therapist for the 10-hour TV serial Gypsy, and did a good deal of sitting in armchairs for that. She takes the sofa. “This works.”

The day Watts was born, her mother once recalled, the midwife took one look and declared the baby would grow up to be famous. “How many newborns did she say that about?” Watts smiles.
