‘Timbuktu’ Producer Sylvie Pialat Wins Second Toscan du Plantier Award

17 February 2015 4:48 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– Abderrahmane Sissako’s Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” has taken another kudo in France: Its producer Sylvie Pialat won the Toscan du Plantier Award, Gaul’s equivalent to the PGA’s Darryl F. Zanuck award, at a Paris ceremony on Feb. 16.

Pialat, who produced “Timbuktu” via her Paris-based company Les Films du Worso, was named producer of the year for the second consecutive year.

In 2014, she nabbed the Toscan du Plantier kudo after producing Alain Guiraudie’s drama thriller “Stranger by the Lake,” which premiered at Un Certain Regard and earned Guiraudie a best director prize.

Both Sissako and Pialat will be traveling to Los Angeles this weekend to attend the Academy Awards.

Timbuktu,” a drama depicting the barbaric occupation by Islamic fundamentalists in Mali, has been a major arthouse hit in France, where it’s being distributed by Jean Labadie’s Le Pacte.

Timbuktu” marks the first Mauritanian film to compete for a foreign-language Oscar. »

16 February 2015 10:14 AM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix will be adding a brand new title to its slate of original film initiatives. The streaming platform will debut the war thriller Jadotville starring Jamie Dornan (of 50 Shades of Grey fame) across all Netflix territories in 2016.

Helmed by music video director Richie Smyth, Jadotville tells the story of Commander Patrick Quinlan (Dornan), the leader of an Irish Un battalion of 150 men who are under siege by 3,000 Congolese troops. Belgian and French mercenaries hired by mining companies lead the attack, with one French commander (played by Guillaume Canet of Blood Ties) particularly determined to defeat Quinlan’s outranked battalion.

Netflix acquired Jadotville at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival. The Irish war thriller, penned by Kevin Brodbin (Constantine), will film in Ireland and South Africa. Alan Moloney of Parallel Films (Albert Nobbs, Byzantium) is set to produce.

Two Days, One Night movie review: on the coins of a dilemma

11 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A genuine horror story, sweaty with a palpable ring of truth about the unending fear that accompanies life on the knife edge of financial despair. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Forget mad slashers and serial killers: this is a real horror story. And it’s all the more horrifying because it takes place in Europe (specifically, in Belgium), where protection for workers and the social safety net is so much stronger than it is in the U.S. Of course, this is a fictional story, but it is sweaty with a palpable ring of truth about the economic precariousness of everyone who isn’t rich, and the unending fear that accompanies life on the knife edge of financial despair.

Crammed into one weekend here — the two days and one night of the title — is »

Jupiter Ascending movie review: princess drearies

5 February 2015 12:32 PM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Sees no need to engage metaphor or dispense with cliché, so when you haven’t seen it before, you can’t believe what you’re seeing. And not in a good way. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): science fiction isn’t treated so well at the movies these days

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Oh my god, hooray! A space adventure with a woman at its center! And it’s Mila Kunis, who is awesome! She’s gonna be like a new Luke Skywalker, whisked away from a boring life on Tatooine– er, Earth for more exciting interstellar horizons beyond! Woo-hoo!

Yeah, not so much, as it happens. What happens is more like: Kunis (Annie, Blood Ties) gets drugged, attacked, chased, menaced, threatened, rescued, kidnapped, chased some more, rescued again. Rinse and repeat for a good hour and half. »

Charlie Hunnam to star with Robert Pattinson in Lost City of Z

3 February 2015 2:38 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Hunnam has officially signed on to star opposite Robert Pattinson in the big screen adaptation of The Lost City of Z.

Brad Pitt's production company Plan B is adapting David Grann's non-fiction account of the disappearance of British explorer Percy Fawcett.

Pacific Rim star Hunnam is stepping in for Benedict Cumberbatch to portray Fawcett, who was never seen again after leading an expedition to find an ancient city in the Amazon.

The circumstances surrounding Fawcett's disappearance have remained a mystery since 1925, with others also going missing while searching for him.

Cumberbatch had to leave the project due to his commitment to Marvel's superhero movie Doctor Strange.

Production on The Lost City of Z is expected to begin this summer.

James Gray, whose previous work includes Palme d'Or-nominated The Immigrant and the crime drama Blood Ties, is writing and directing The Lost City of Z.

New on Netflix: February 2015

27 January 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What will February bring to Netflix? "House of Cards" returns for its much awaited third season, but not until Feb. 27. If you can't wait for your Kevin Spacey fix until then, "Now: In the Wings on a World Stage" (2014), a documentary of Spacey starring in a production of Shakespeare's "Richard III," is available on Feb. 1.

And the 2004 "King Arthur," starring Clive Owen and Keira Knightley, isn't exactly Shakespearean, but look at how many great actors -- like Mads Mikkelsen, Ioan Gruffudd, Hugh Dancy and Joel Edgerton -- have gone on to much bigger things.

You can also stream "Joe," one of Nicolas Cage's best films in recent years; the overlooked indie "The Brothers Bloom" with Mark Ruffalo, Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz; and the barely-in-theaters thriller "The Two Faces of January," starring Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.

Here's a much larger rundown of what's new on Netflix in February 2015, provided by Netflix. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #89. Maiwenn’s Mon roi

5 January 2015 12:45 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Mon roi

Director: Maiwenn // Writers: Etienne Comar, Maiwenn

Actress turned director Maiwenn’s last stint behind the camera won her the Jury Prize at Cannes 2011 with the moving dramatic ensemble, Polisse. Formerly titled “Rien Ne Sert De Courir”, her latest, Mon roi stars Vincent Cassel and Emmanuelle Bercot, a woman who is more well known as a director (On My Way; Backstage) than an actress, and on top of its pedigree, sounds like an intriguing followup from the impressive Maiwenn. The film, shot back in March, recounts, over the course of several years, the passionate and intricate love story of a couple with a child.

Cast: Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle BercotLudovic Berthillot

Producers: France 2 Cinema, Les Productions du Tresor’s Alain Attal (Blood Ties), Studiocanal.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: Pegged with an October release in France, with her last film playing in the main competition and winning a major award, »
