Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »

'Newness': Film Review | Sundance 2017

1 February 2017 3:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In Drake Doremus' 2011 breakthrough Like Crazy, a beautiful pair of young lovers (Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones) face a situation in which they should break up, but don't — creating much misery, however bittersweet and beautifully photographed, for themselves. In Newness, the director (and his Like Crazy co-writer Ben York Jones) again puts a young couple through self-inflicted trials, inspiring viewers who've been around the block to wince at the pain sure to come. While it (appropriately) lacks the first-love poetry of the earlier film, the picture benefits from two strong lead performances (from Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa) »

Back in 2011, director Drake Doremus made a splash at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with his indie romance Like Crazy, which won the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic category. Since then, his films Breathe In and Equals haven’t really reached the same level of praise. But with his latest work behind the […]

The show centers around a man named Alex, who has a different body every day. This causes problems as he falls in love with a woman, played by Winstead.

Sundance Review: ‘Newness’ is a Stagnant Look at Modern Love

25 January 2017 6:43 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Drake Doremus‘ assured and incisive take on long-distance love, Like Crazy, won Sundance’s top prize six years ago. If his latest sci-fi romance Equals did not meet its high expectations, it certainly inspired the director to go back to the basics of the winning formula that heralded his break-out.

Newness, his latest handheld-shot drama, captures love in the age of Tinder hook-ups (replaced here by the fictitious app Winx) and millennials completely turning their backs on commitment by replacing it with open-ended relationships. The two millennial leads this time are Nicholas Hoult as Martin, a pharmacist addicted to his hook-up app, and Laia Costa as Gabi, a Barcelona-born physical therapist that uses the same app to hook-up and, as she says, to “find someone that can actually make me come.”

Both coming from failed Winx hook-ups that same evening, the two meet and grab some drinks. After some loose and effortless banter, »

‘Newness’ Review: Nicholas Hoult And Laia Costa Can’t Save Drake Doremus’ Dating App Drama — Sundance 2017

24 January 2017 3:10 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Have you guys heard about millennials? Well, Drake Doremus has — he’s one of them! — and he’s got some thoughts about all that random sex they’re having. Doremus, who won Sundance with 2011’s sensitively simple “Like Crazy,” has never met a flimsy romantic premise he couldn’t populate with beautiful people and banal observations. It was only a matter of time before this prolific indie auteur turned his eye toward the hedonistic thunderdome of dating apps.

Set in contemporary Los Angeles, “Newness” tells the story of two horny (but also sad) twentysomethings who mysteriously regain their feelings and fall in love, causing tensions between themselves and their society. This is not to be confused with Doremus’ last film, the sci-fi slog “Equals,” which was set in an emotionless utopia where two horny (but also sad) twentysomethings mysteriously regain their feelings and fall in love, causing tensions between them and their society. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Newness’

23 January 2017 3:12 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newness,” Drake Doremus’ drama about love in the age of the endless sex-shopping-mall hookup app, is a movie that wants to look and feel like “life.” It’s shot with a handheld camera, and with a lot of quick cuts and natural light — though this translates into every room being cast in slate-gray shadow, as if life were the ultimate designer beer commercial. (One of the film’s producers is Ridley Scott, who along with his brother Tony pioneered this sort of thing making British TV commercials in the 1980s; it’s nice to know that some traditions live on.) Gliding through the murk of existential images are a lot of very pretty millennials, notably the two leads: Nicholas Hoult as the world’s sexiest pharmacist, and Laia Costa as an expatriate from Barcelona who’s working as a physical therapist. Tale, pale, and lightly bearded, Hoult looks like Ethan Hawke »

Sundance Past & Present: Seven Hair-Raising Lessons from Returning Filmmakers

19 January 2017 5:13 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Filmmakers around the world harbor the same fantasy: I’m going to make a film so good that it will play the Sundance Film Festival, score rave reviews, sell in an overnight bidding war for a multi-million-dollar minimum guarantee to a major theatrical buyer, open in packed theaters around the country, and launch my career.

Right.

Truth is, this hardly ever happens. We checked in with a group of lauded Sundance filmmakers, all who are returning to the festival this year with new films, to glean what they learned the hard way from their Sundance experiences.

1. Manage expectations.

Alex Ross Perry (“Golden Exits”): My first time was with “Listen Up Philip” [2014], which was a huge step forward from my last movie, “The Color Wheel,” which I made for $25,000 with all my friends. This was a sizable, produced movie with a cast of well-known people [Jason Schwartzman, Elizabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce]. The first days was all »

The beauty in La La Land’s unconventional ending

18 January 2017 5:11 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Jan 19, 2017

Spoilers: we're going to chat about the ending to La La Land...

Nb: The following contains spoilers, which we've rated per film by their spiciness: La La Land, Rogue One (mild), A Monster Calls (mild), Arrival (mild), The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, Before Sunset, Before Sunrise, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Like Crazy and Once (mild).

There are many things you could call remarkable about La La Land - the musical already sweeping the awards season and looking set to bag the Best Picture gong at the Oscars - its sumptuous primary coloured cinematography, its dreamy soundtrack and its unabashed throwback to an older Hollywood where musicals were commonplace.

But the most remarkable thing, the thing that’s been most discussed by critics and audiences since its release, is its ending.

Lrm's 10 Most Anticipated Sundance Film Festival Premieres

17 January 2017 10:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Later this week, Lrm will be attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival. While the festival tends to be a mixed bag of indie films, some will be picked up for distribution by studios and turned into mainstream hits, others will flounder and be lucky to get a VOD release. Even so, there’s no denying that Sundance is the real beginning of the year for most movie lovers as we’ll be talking about the movies below for the next 12 months.

Last year alone, Sundance held the premieres for The Birth of a Nation, Manchester by the Sea, Captain Fantastic, Love and Friendship, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street and many more films, some that appeared on The Weekend Warrior’s year-end Top 25. One or two of those might even receive Oscar nominations when they’re announced next week on January 24.

Italy Box Office Up 3.86% in 2016 Calendar Year, Driven by Local Films

17 January 2017 9:29 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italian motion picture association Anica on Tuesday announced figures for calendar year 2016 showing a 3.86% increase in box office grosses to a total 661 million euros ($706 million) and a 6% rise in ticket sales to more than 105 million admissions.

The result is being touted as decent despite the fact that one local movie, smash comedy hit “Quo Vado” (pictured), accounted for nearly 10% of the year’s haul.

Previously, Variety reported that box office in Italy had dropped 6% percent in 2016, based on data from comScore. The discrepancy is due to the fact that Anica looks at the calendar year for its totals, while comScore uses an international “industry year” definition which starts from the first Thursday of the year – January 7, 2016 – and includes all play weeks that start within the calendar year of 2016. Their end date is therefore January 4, 2017. Both Anica and comScore use numbers provided by Italian national box office compiler Cinetel.

Author: Jon Lyus

Today sees the release of Ben Affleck’s Live By Night, a thriller that is a far cry from the heady heights of the DC Cinematic Universe and the Justice League.

Scott Davis also sat down with actor Chris Messina, who plays Dion Bartolo in Live By Night. The actor has also appeared in another of Affleck’s films, the Oscar-winning Argo as well as a fine run of indie movies including the divine Ruby Sparks, Celeste and Jesse Forever and Like Crazy.

Sundance 2017: Inside Drake Doremus’ Secretive Online Dating Film ‘Newness’

12 January 2017 6:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The new Drake Doremus movie “Newness” is the rare film that was kept a secret almost by accident. A last-minute addition to the Sundance Film Festival, the movie was financed and produced so quickly that the filmmaking team skipped the usual casting announcements and other publicity efforts that accompany most Hollywood movies. It’s not that the producers tried to fly under the radar – they were just too busy making the actual movie.

Doremus’ fourth film to premiere in Park City after “Douchebag,” “Like Crazy” and “Breathe In,” the movie stars Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa as a couple in contemporary Los Angeles navigating the world of online dating and social media–driven hookup culture. The film co-stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Courtney Eaton, Danny Huston and Courtney Eaton.

‘Skyjacker’s Tale’ Documentary Acquired by Strand

11 January 2017 1:35 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Strand Releasing has acquired all U.S. rights to Jamie Kastner’s documentary “The Skyjacker’s Tale” from C7 Intl. and plans a late spring release, Variety has learned exclusively.

The film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, centers on skyjacker Ishmael Muslim Ali. He’d been convicted of murdering eight people in 1972 in the U.S. Virgin Islands, attempted to get his conviction overturned, and commandeered an American Airlines plane full of passengers to Cuba on New Year’s Eve 1984.

Ali, who remains a fugitive from the U.S., has continued living in Cuba. The film includes his first interview since the hijacking and features never-before-seen footage.

“We’re thrilled to have found the right U.S. home for this important, little-known American story,” says C7 International’s Baron Kastner. “We were fortunate to have had multiple offers out of Tiff, no mean feat for a doc these days, »

As we draw closer to the Sundance Film Festival, it was expected that organizers still had one or two more movies up their sleeves to add to the lineup. And indeed, they’ve made everyone scramble to redraw their schedules with two big new titles coming to Park City.

First up is “Newness,” a surprise new film from Drake Doremus (“Like Crazy,” “Equals“) that shot this apparently shooting this fall, and got turned around crazy quick.

Two new films have just been added to this year’s Sundance Film Festival: Drake Doremus’ “Newness” and Banks Tarver, Ted Bourne and Mary Robertson’s “Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time.” The former marks Doremus’ fourth film to premiere in Park City after “Douchebag,” “Like Crazy” and “Breathe In,” while the latter continues Sundance’s tradition of ultra-timely political documentaries.

Tamika’s Favorites of 2016

7 January 2017 10:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

2016 was chock-full of big blockbuster releases, many of which either failed to make a sizable profit or were incredibly divisive among audiences. But out of the ashes rose a beautiful flower: the indie film. Yes, independent movies had a wonderful year, some even breaking per-theater records and making their way onto my favorites of 2016 list, which also includes a Denis Villeneuve film, a comic book series, collectibles, an excellent comprehensive horror documentary, and more.

ArrivalDenis Villeneuve's Arrival is a beautiful take on language and how communication (or the lack of proper communication) can either doom or ensure our survival as human beings on this planet. The way Villeneuve tells a story is the perfect fit for a film like Arrival because its focus is small but the ideas are big, much like his previous works, EnemySicario, and Prisoners.

My hope is that the takeaway from Arrival »
