Friday's Top 5: Uneffective Marketing Campaign For Films or TV Series

15 July 2011 12:32 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

No order of preference, really.

#5: Bodyguard

Although I'm not a fan of Tony Jaa, I believe he's a great fighter. This is why I once decided to rent this film at my local library, because I saw Jaa's name right on the top part of the DVD cover. Unfortunately, while the film lasts for 105 minutes, Jaa only makes a cameo appearance for about five minutes in a fight scene. Pathetic.

#4: Revolutionary Road

Cute on-screen couple? Check. Tragic love story? Check. Unfortunately, Sam Mendes's Revolutionary Road will not make at least one billion dollars at the box-office like James Cameron's Titanic. Thank the studio behind this gem only for promoting Revolutionary Road as one film among others rather than as a second reunion between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, whose on-screen chemistry made Titanic a success. No wonder Revolutionary Road just made at least $75 M at the box-office. »

André Sauvé Will Turn a Sketch of His Into a Film

7 July 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Canadian comedian André Sauvé will adapt into a film a famous monologue he did in a sketch: the grocery store (l'épicerie). The film will fittingly be called L'épicerie.

This will be the second film in which André Sauvé plays after Filière 13. Instead of being in a supporting role like in Filière 13, Sauvé will be the lead actor.

Christal Film Productions, a production company, announced yesterday that André Sauvé will write the film's script along with Claude Lalonde (Filière 13). For the moment, no director is attached to the film.

The film is about a man who goes to the grocery store. Once there, he starts to panick because of what's offered to him on the shelves.

In the next months, the producers of the film will seek subsidies from Telefilm Canada and the Sodec, respectively a federal and a Quebecker cinematographic funding agency. The producers expect L'épicerie's budget to be at $6 M. »
