Porto review – Anton Yelchin love story lacks passion and focus

20 September 2016 3:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Confusion reigns in one of the star’s final films as an unfolding romance is submerged in stylistic quirks

One of the last screen performances from Anton Yelchin, this low-budget romantic drama – premiered at the San Sebastián film festival – recalls the late star’s turn in Like Crazy with its unashamedly love-struck tone, while attempting to appropriate the style and grace of Derek Cianfrance’s gritty masterpiece Blue Valentine.

Here, Yelchin plays a troubled twentysomething loner, Jake, studying in Porto, who crosses paths, on three occasions, with a striking thirtysomething academic, Mati (French TV star Lucie Lucas). The coincidence is not lost on the pair: soon enough, furtive glances become a dinner date that leaps to her apartment. The young American is smitten beyond words. His date, though, is less committed, confessing to a compulsive disorder and a past mental illness, while juggling a relationship with her professor, who is several years her senior. »

Toronto: 9 Standout Performances From Natalie Portman to Emma Stone

15 September 2016 4:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From newcomers to movie stars, many films at this year’s Toronto Film Festival provided showcases for actors looking to make a career U-turn. Some earning buzz from this year’s gathering, such as Emma Stone in “La La Land” and Natalie Portman in “Jackie,” are already household names who are now sure bets for Oscars nominations. Other, like Sunny Pawar in “Lion,” barely have a film credit to their name. But all leave Canada with a professional boost, as the industry heads into the fall movie season. Here’s a look at nine breakout performances that galvanized Toronto.

(1) Natalie Portman, “Jackie

Portman has been nominated for two Oscars before — for “Closer” and “Black Swan,” for which she won best actress — but nothing prepared me for her performance in “Jackie.” In portraying the iconic first lady in the days after John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Portman takes an elusive historic »

Toronto: French Sales Agents and Producers Expand Business Abroad

14 September 2016 5:16 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As financing shrinks for auteur cinema and the race to access strong projects intensifies, French sales agents and producers are diversifying and internationalizing their businesses.

A decade ago, only French powerhouses like EuropaCorp, Pathe, Gaumont and Studiocanal were involved in English-language projects with cast attached. Now, there’s several medium-size French producers and sales agents who are involved in high-profile English-language projects and are seeking to expand their footprints abroad.

Nicolas Brigaud Robert, co-founder of Films Distribution, which has Francois Ozon’s “Frantz” playing at Toronto’s Special Presentation and Katell Quillévéré’s “Heal the Living” competing at Toronto’s second edition of Platform, says this internationalization trend stems the weakening of local film industries and public funding sources.

“Most films no longer get financed in their country of origin, which is why producers are more and more relying on co-production and international sales to raise [funds],” explains Brigaud-Robert, who is »

Bac adds Cattet and Forzani’s 'Let The Corpses Tan' to Tiff state

31 August 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Bac releases first image of third feature from cult genre film directors.

Bac Films International has picked up sales on French genre writer-director duo Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani’s upcoming feature.

Let The Corpses Tan is the third feature from the Brussels-based couple after their cult ‘giallo’-inspired hits The Strange Color Of Your Body’s Tears and Amer.

The new work is adapted from the debut novel of late 1970s French crime writer Jean-Patrick Manchette, Laissez Bronzer les Cadavres, which Manchette co-wrote with screenwriter Jean-Pierre Bastid.

Set against the blue seas and blazing sun of a perfect Mediterranean summer, the film revolves around Rhino and his gang of professional thieves.

They think they have found the perfect place to hide out and stash a haul of gold in a remote hamlet controlled by a female artist who moved there for inspiration.

But the arrival of surprise guests and two police officers compromise their plan. The »

‘Equals’ Rights: Plagiarism Accusation Ignites Behind-the-Scenes Battle Over Costume Design

22 August 2016 11:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Credit wars are a fact of Hollywood life that’s rarely laid bare. Those involved are often intimidated by the possible consequences, and the backstories aren’t simple; there’s the question of whether they’ll be believed, or if anyone really has the patience to hear them out.

The battle over costume design credits on “Equals” is different.

Directed by the Sundance-winning Drake Doremus, “Equals” stars Kristen Stewart and Nicolas Hoult. Two costume designers are officially credited to the production: In first position is Abby O’Sullivan, a veteran whose credits included “Frozen River,” “Sinister,” and “Mississippi Grind.” In second position, Alana Morshead, who was an actress and stylist when she started collaborating with Doremus on the film.

21 August 2016 12:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With his sci-fi romance “Equals” still in theaters, writer/director Drake Doremus has already lined up his next project. Described as “a unique love story,” the untitled film will star Charlie Hunnam and Léa Seydoux. No plot details are being revealed at this time. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the story.

Rich Greenberg, best known for his theater and television work, is writing the screenplay. Prior to “Equals,” which stars Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart as two members of a future society in which all emotional displays are verboten (they fall in love, natch), Doremus came to attention for writing and directing “Breathe In” and “Like Crazy.”

Drake Doremus Plots Equals Follow-Up With Charlie Hunnam And Léa Seydoux

20 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Drake Doremus is plotting his follow-up to Equals now that The Hollywood Reporter reveals Léa Seydoux and soon-to-be King Arthur Charlie Hunnam are boarding his as-yet-untitled project.

Billed as a “unique love story,” Scott Free Productions is on board to produce – extending its collaboration with the filmmaker following work on Equals – though plot details are practically non-existent at such an early stage. We understand that Rich Greenberg is the brain behind the script, though, and that Léa Seydoux and Charlie Hunnam are central to the goings-on of Doremus’ latest.

Granted, the director may have split audiences with the Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult sci-fi film Equals, but Like Crazy – which featured Felicity Jones and the late Anton Yelchin – displayed the director’s deft touch for all things romance, a knack he’ll no doubt call upon for this latest project.

In terms of Drake Doremus‘ newfound duo, we know that Seydoux, »

Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Adriana Floridia8/12/2016 12:53:00 Pm

This week was a big one for movie trailers.

First off, last night, the highly anticipated Rogue One trailer finally debuted. Many of us sat around on our computers all night waiting for the event, and the trailer did not disappoint. We're pretty spoiled to have another new Star Wars movie this year, and as much as we loved The Force Awakens, this one might look even better.

Besides Rogue One, we also saw new trailers for Disney's Moana, a new red-band trailer for Bad Santa 2, and new trailers for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, and Robert Zemeckis' Allied. Check out all of this week's new trailers below!

It seems as though we have been waiting forever, but today is the day that the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer is finally upon us!

In this Star Wars prequel, Felicity Jones stars as Jyn Erso, the woman in charge of stealing the plans for the Death Star. We can't wait to see the actress in the role, as she's already astonished us with her more dramatic work in films such as Like Crazy and The Theory of Everything. We know she's going to be one fierce rebel in Rogue One, and with that, will likely rise to super stardom.

Last year we were treated with a new Star Wars sequel, The Force Awakens, and we're feeling pretty privileged to live in a time where Star Wars films are back on the big screen, »
