Spain’s VOD Boom May Have Lasting Effects

Netflix’s first Spanish original TV series, “Las Chicas del Cable,” which became available to subscribers April 28, captures the excitement of a technological revolution, imagining a plush 1928 Madrid where four young girls work as switchboard operators at Spain’s first nationwide telecom. Targeting female telenovela-sated audiences worldwide with upscale romantic melodrama, “Las Chicas del Cable’s” central issues remain, however, startlingly familiar: Machismo, pre-destined love and broken hearts.

Fast-forward 90 years from 1928 and Spain is caught in another cable revolution: VOD. Netflix entered Spain in October 2015; HBO España, a standalone streaming service, followed suit last November; Amazon Prime Video a few days later.

Netflix has bought bullishly, acquiring dozens of films from top Spanish companies, reportedly often paying premium prices. It has produced its first Spanish original movie, workplace thriller “7 Días.” But that buying spree may be over.

Berlinale: Latido Takes Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s ‘El Reino’ (Exclusive)

Berlin — Madrid-based Latido Films, Oscar-winning Tornasol Films and Woody Allen producer Atresmedia Cine are re-teaming on Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s “El Reino,” starring Antonio de la Torre.

All five backed Sorogoyen’s latest 2016 release, “May God Save Us,” a harrowing serial killer thriller which, consolidating Sorogoyen’s reparation as a director to track, was distributed by Warner Bros. in Spain, won best screenplay at September’s San Sebastian Festival last year and was still racking up international sales for Latido at this week’s Berlin European Film Market.

The lead producer on “May God Save Us,” Gerardo Herrero and Mariela Besuievsky’s Tornasol Films, an arthouse institution in Spain, produced Juan Jose Campanella’s “The Secret in Their Eyes,” which won an Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 2009.

Batman Forever: the version we never got to see

Rob Leane Jan 18, 2017

Longer, darker and closer to what came before, the extended version of Batman Forever sounds interesting at the least...

Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever was a divisive movie, to say the least, and one that we’ve debated the merits of before on this site. But even those of us who like the film (this writer included) would be quick to admit that it’s nowhere near the brilliance of the preceding brace of Bat-movies from Tim Burton.

It’s intriguing to hear, then, that the original cut of Batman Forever weighed in at 2 hours 40 minutes. That’s 38 minutes of extra footage that never made it into cinemas; enough missing minutes to significantly alter the film. Would the original version of Batman Forever have garnered more love?

Even as it was, Star Wars: Rogue One was a pretty dark and intense affair. This is, after all, a movie that reveals the human cost behind the stolen plans for the Death Star - plans that formed the jumping-off point for the much breezier New Hope. But looking back through Rogue One’s earlier trailers, there are hints here and there that Gareth Edwards’ prequel - the first in a planned series of A Star Wars Story spin-offs - might have been darker still as initially conceived.

Elevation Pictures moves into production
The Canadian distributor backed by Teddy Schwarzman’s Black Bear Pictures is expanding operations.

Elevation will partner on the new division with Canadian producer Christina Piovesan, whose credits include The Whistleblower, Amreeka and Red Lights.

The company will offer production services to Canadian and international projects shooting in Canada and move into in-house productions.

“As more producers from around the world have come to recognise the unmatched appeal of Canada as a production destination, and with the growing success of homegrown content as well as international co-productions, a move into production was a natural next step for the company,” said Dan Steinman (pictured), the Elevation Pictures CEO who played an integral role in launching the company in 2013 and also serves as co-president and COO at Black Bear.

“And Christina, who has tremendous production savvy and relationships and taste, is the perfect complement to Elevation as we execute this move.”

Amour Fou (Jessica Hausner)

An ecstatically original work of film-history-philosophy with a digital-cinema palette of acutely crafted compositions. Amour Fou seamlessly blends together the paintings of Vermeer, the acting of Bresson, and the psychological undercurrents of a Dostoevsky novel. It is an intensely thrilling and often slyly comic work that manages to combine a passionately dispassionate love story of the highest order with a larger socio-historical

Pretty Baby | DVD Review

  • ioncinema
At the time of its production, Louis Malle’s 1978 title Pretty Baby (the title derived from the Tony Jackson song) was quite the scandal, a period piece frankly depicting child prostitution in turn of the century New Orleans. But like many provocative titles from the period (another being Richard BrooksLooking For Mr. Goodbar), decades of suppression has resulted in unavailability and a disappearance from modern cinematic conversations. Recently made available courtesy of the Warner Bros. Archive collection (solely on DVD) this is property begging for a more masterful restoration.

In the Red Lights district of 1917 New Orleans, legal prostitution is on the wane as a surge of conservative, religious rhetoric begins to sweep through the country. Nell (Francis Faye) owns a booming brothel in the famed Storyville district, and one of her most notable employees is Hattie (Susan Sarandon), whose twelve-year-old daughter Violet (Brooke Shields) has grown up within the house.

Spain’s Tax Authorities Confirm Broad-Based Eligibility For Tax Credits on International Shoots (Exclusive)

Spain’s Tax Authorities Confirm Broad-Based Eligibility For Tax Credits on International Shoots (Exclusive)
Madrid –Spain gave “Games of Thrones” the location for its Water Gardens of Dorne in Seville’s Alcazar Palace. Now it may have helped Spain gain clarity on new and attractively broad-based tax credits for international shoots in general.

After near six months of uncertainty, on June 2, Spain’s tax authorities issued a broad list of clarifications to multiple questions lodged by the unidentified line producer of an equally indeterminate foreign TV series which, the authorities said, was set to shoot a substantial part of a season in Spain. These shed light on what local spend in Spain could qualify for new Article 36.2 tax credits on international shoots.

One day later, HBO confirmed it would shoot portions of “Games of Thrones’” Season 6 on natural locations in Girona, in North-East Spain’s Catalonia, a city with imposing battlements, towers and churches, and in Peñiscola, a castle-topped town which stood in for
