30 June 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Creator of iconic French TV programmes such as Les Guignols de l’Info loses battle with cancer.

French television industry veteran Alain de Greef, one of the co-founders of Canal Plus alongside Pierre Lescure and André Rousslet in the 1980s, has died. He was 68.

The executive passed away in his home in Provence yesterday (June 29) after a battle with cancer.

De Greef oversaw the pay-tv channel’s content - firstly as director of production, then head of programmes, and finally as director general - from 1986 to 2000.

He was brought into Canal Plus by his long-time collaborator and friend Lescure, with whom he created the popular 1980s music programme Les Enfants du Rock for state-backed channel Antenne 2, now France 2.

Omar Sy Is Samba In New Trailer

19 June 2015 4:40 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Check out the trailer for Samba, starring Omar Sy (Jurassic World) and Charlotte Gainsbourg … brought to you from the directing-duo behind The Intouchables – Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano.

Samba reunites The Intouchables’ acclaimed directing duo, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, with award-winning actor Omar Sy in a richly entertaining chronicle of an undocumented kitchen worker battling deportation from his adopted home in Paris.

When Samba (Sy) is suddenly ordered to leave France, he enlists the help of Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg), an emotionally vulnerable immigration advocate with little experience but plenty of heart.

As the immigrant aspiring chef and the burned-out corporate executive tentatively explore an unexpected bond, they inspire each other to reinvent themselves in this vibrant comedy full of tender humor and heartfelt optimism.

Sy wowed critics and audiences at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in Gaumont’s Chocolat. The period drama stars Omar Sy as Cuban artist Rafael Padilla »

Annecy: ‘Ballerina’ Producers Prep Second Period Toonpic ‘The Bravest’

Following “Ballerina,” the team behind “Intouchables” – Laurent Zeitoun, Yann Zenou and Nicolas Duval — are poised to explore further the animation world with their second toonpic, “The Bravest.”

“The Bravest” marks the producers’ second animated film after “Ballerina” (pictured) which is being presented at Annecy in the Work In Progress section.

The English-language feature is currently in development. The animation will be created out at L’Atelier Animation in Montreal.

Set in the 1920’s, against the backdrop of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory disaster, “The Bravest” turns on a 15-year old girl who desperately wants to make her father proud. After finding out that her dad used to be a firefighter, she sets out to become one and enrolls into a fire station.

Zeitoun told Variety that “The Bravest” will be in the same artistic vein as “Ballerina,” the 1884-set film charting the journey of Felice, an 11-year-old orphan girl from Brittany »

12 May 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Other new titles on slate include Pattaya and Critics’ Week screener Learn by Heart.

Gaumont has launched sales on Pascal Chaumeil’s upcoming Odd Job (Un Petit Boulot), achieving a first early deal to Pathé Switzerland on the eve of the Cannes market.

The film is based on Iain Levison’s novel Since the Lay-Offs adapted to the big screen by actor Michel Blanc who also appears in the film.

Film Review: 'Samba'

12 May 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Trying to capture lightning in a bottle for a second time is always an unenviable task. That was the challenge laid out to directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano as they seek to follow-up on the massive critical and commercial success of 2011's Untouchable, a light and hugely enjoyable odd-couple tale. Unsurprisingly, they have reunited once again with star Omar Sy for their fourth collaboration, Samba (2014). The result is a warm and engaging blend of romantic comedy and social drama, with Sy a shining light at its centre, but it lacks the irresistible charm which would have allowed it to replicate the magic of four years ago.

We’re still waiting on a release date (beyond “summer” anyway), but thanks to Comic Book we’ve got a look at the upcoming Blu-ray steelbook cover for X-Men: Days of Future Past – The Rogue Cut, which you can see here…

The extended version of last year’s mutant superhero sequel is set to add an extra 17 minutes to the film, which as you can probably guess from the title, are focussed on the character of Rogue (Anna Paquin), who was all but cut from the theatrical version.

Dinosaurs kill for sport in new trailer and posters for Jurassic World with Chris Pratt

20 April 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“Life finds a way,” and according to the first global trailer for Jurassic World, it’s going to be Chris Pratt’s way.

Owen (Pratt) appears to be something of a dinosaur whisperer, the of-the-Earth Everyman to Bryce Dallas Howard’s button-downed scientist, Beth.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, John Hammond’s park is finally open. While visitors flock to the prehistoric-themed park as if it were a very elaborate zoo, Owen and Beth discover a huge problem with their newest attraction, Indominus rex.

The genetically modified mutant dinosaur is killing for sport, and humans are the next targets in the creature’s deadly rampage.

Fingers-crossed that, between Owen’s brawn and Beth’s brain, they can stop the Indominus rex – or else there will be a lot of unhappy (possibly dead) Jurassic Park visitors.

Jurassic World also stars Vincent D’Onofrio (“Law & Order”), Jake Johnson (“New Girl »

Paris — Elie Wajeman’s “The Anarchists,” a period drama starring Tahar Rahim (“The Past”) and Adele Exarchopoulos (“Blue Is the Warmest Color”), is set to world premiere on opening night of Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival, anchoring a strongly French-flavored lineup of first and second features.

Samba Movie Review

17 April 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Samba Director: Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache Starring: Omar Sy, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Tahar Rahim, Izia Higelin. While watching the latest film of the ‘Intouchables’ directors you will be pervaded by a sense of déjà vu. But whereas the delicate subject matter of the friendship between a quadriplegic and his assistant was attenuated by unpolitically correct humour, ‘Samba’ doesn’t seem to have the same courage in mocking cultural identity. Racism turns out to be a more sensitive topic to fool around with. Hence, at times the movie seems to be filled with an excessive dose of moral and benevolent behaviour. The French dramedy by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano tells  [ Read More ]

Ron Howard to shoot Inferno in Rome, shares pre-production photos

Italian site Bad Taste has reported that director Ron Howard will begin shooting Inferno, the third Tom Hanks-led Robert Langdon story, in Florence at the end of April through mid-May when the production moves to Instanbul and Venezia.

Howard took to Facebook and posted some behind-the scenes looks at the decision-making process of he and his team as they choose shots for an opening action sequence. The foam-core models depict the spire of Badìa Fiorentina, which has historical ties to Dante Alighieri and plays host to a mysterious figure at the beginning of Brown’s novel.

Inferno is the third Dan Brown adaptation undertaken by Howard and producing partner Brian Grazer, and sees Robert Langdon waking up in an Italian hospital with amnesia, before he teams up with Sienna Brooks, a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories and prevent a madman from releasing a global plague »
