‘Homeland’ Recap: ‘A Huge Misunderstanding’ as Fallout Begins in Episode 5, ‘Casus Belli’

11 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not seen the Feb. 19 episode of “Homeland,” “Casus Belli.”

After last week’s explosive ending, this episode sets lays another few miles of twisty-turning track for the conspiracy that has been unfolding from across the street from Carrie’s Brooklyn townhouse.

The title of the episode, “Casus Belli,” refers to a provocation that starts a war — the assassination of the Archduke, as it were. What we see this week is the fallout of our key constituencies turning on a dime onto a war footing, no one more so than the deeply traumatized Peter Quinn.

President-elect Keane is whisked away from her hotel and at least temporarily disarmed — from her phone, her staff, even her ability to watch TV — as the national security industrial complex fires up all of its lockdown protocols

But the most remarkable aspect of this episode — written by Chip Johannessen and directed by Alex Graves — is »

‘Billions’ Review: A Radical Proposal for Season 2 Fans Won’t Like Right Now, But Could Love Later

19 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When “Billions” Season 1 ended two things happened: In the narrative, Damian Lewis’ hedge fund manager Bobby “Axe” Axelrod and Paul Giamatti’s U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes growled menacingly at each other from the demolished interior of Axe’s formerly luxurious office space. You see, Chuck had convinced Axe there was a bug somewhere on his turf, forcing him to tear it apart himself; wasting time, effort, and anxiety for what amounted to be a decent, if not exceptional, prank.

Jim Harper would be proud, but “Billions” isn’t a comedy. We need to feel the weight of this supposedly high-stakes story, not laugh at it. Once Axe had finished tearing apart his fancy schmancy office, the two started spitting fire at one another, making threats and promises; tossing insults back and forth; exchanging ever-building anger at the very existence of their opponent. But they didn’t say or do anything revelatory. »

Pressing World Issues Reflected in Writers Guild Policies

17 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave the Writers Guild of America some unexpected exposure at the SAG Awards on Jan. 29 after receiving a trophy for lead actress in a comedy series for her work on “Veep.”

Louis-Dreyfus said, “Our sister guild, the Writers Guild, made a statement today that I would like to read because I am in complete agreement with it. Our guilds are unions of storytellers who have always welcomed those from the nations and of varying beliefs who wish to share their creativity with America. We are grateful for them. We stand with them, and we will fight for them.”

She did not have time to read the statement, which had been issued a few hours earlier and began, “It is both unconstitutional and deeply wrong to say that you cannot enter our country because of where you were born or what religion you were born into,” said WGA West president Howard Rodman and WGA East president »

Billions Star Malin Akerman Reveals Her ‘Humble’ Childhood: We Didn’t ‘Have a Car Until I Was 12 or 13’

17 February 2017 7:22 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On Billions, Malin Akerman plays the savvy wife to a crooked hedge fund manager who wants for nothing. And while it seems the actress and her character wouldn’t have much in common, Akerman says they both come from “humble beginnings.”

“I also grew up with nothing – my family didn’t even have a car until I was 12 or 13,” Akerman tells People in this week’s issue.

Though Akerman’s character, Lara Axelrod, hails from a blue-collar family in Inwood, New York, the actress was born in Sweden and spent her youth in Canada.

Berlinale: Mediapro Takes Stake in Burman Office, Creating TV Creation-Production Hub (Exclusive)

15 February 2017 11:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — Creating one of the biggest independent creation-production TV hubs in the Spanish-speaking markets which is aimed at making contents for the whole world, Spain’s Mediapro, a “The Young Pope” co-producer, has bought a substantial stake in Argentina’s Burman Office. Headed by Daniel Burman, a leading light of the New Argentine Cinema, Burman Office is set to produce “Edha,” Netflix’s first TV series in Argentina.

One of the key axes in a fast-emerging new independent production TV scene in Latin America and Spain, the alliance will be unveiled Feb. 16 in Berlin by Mediapro head Jaume Roures and Burman. It builds on a strategic co-development deal between Mediapro and Burman Office for high-end fiction TV series and formats that was announced last July.

Mediapro’s equity investment goes further, however, seeing Burman Office becoming part of the Mediapro, one of Southern Europe’s largest and most international of »

Niki Caro tapped to direct Disney’s live-action Mulan

14 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of many upcoming live-action Disney remakes has just found its director, as The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Niki Caro will helm 2018’s Mulan. In so doing, Caro will make history, becoming only the second woman in the studio’s history (and third in all) to direct a film with a budget over $100 million.

Reportedly, Disney saw it as important to hire a female for the job and looked at such other candidates as Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman) and Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad). Caro’s hiring likely means that she’s out of the running for another major studio tentpole, Captain Marvel, which will be the first female-led superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Caro’s name was previously on a shortlist alongside Lesli Linka Glatter (Homeland) and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).

Berlinale: Luca Guadagnino on Why ‘Call Me by Your Name’ Strikes Such Deep Chords

13 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After becoming a standout title at Sundance, Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name” had its European premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on Monday, where it was also very warmly received. The film features Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet, and was shot and edited in a matter of months. Guadagnino spoke to Variety about how the stars aligned for this powerful summer love story to become a potential career game-changer for him.

You really hit your stride with this movie, which seems like your most personal work. Is it?

I’m not so sure about that. I would say the reason this film is striking deep chords is probably due to the way I approached it. It was a way of absolute simplicity. I asked myself if I wanted to create a piece that was a sort of conversation between the storyline, the characters, and the medium, or »

Homeland season 6 episode 4 review: A Flash Of Light

12 February 2017 7:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Feb 20, 2017

The dynamics of Homeland Season 6 change in an instant, and for the better. Here's our spoiler-filled episode 4 review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Michael Keaton headed to Kong: Skull Island Looking back at Peter Jackson's King Kong Godzilla Vs King Kong set for 2020

6.4 A Flash Of Light

Let’s just say Homeland isn’t afraid to still shake things up once in a while. So it was in A Flash of Light, which like its title, changes everything in an instant. The suddenly shifting dynamics offer what is perhaps the most engaging hour of the past several seasons. Certainly the best we’ve thus far had in season 6.

The episode of course builds to when that light flashes, and Sekou proves to be everything he always was: a dumb angry kid who got swept up in forces beyond him… and, one way or another, destroyed by them. »

‘Homeland’ Review: After Priming the Political Powder Keg, The Switch (Finally) Flipped on Season 6

12 February 2017 6:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review of “Homeland” Season 6, Episode 4, “A Flash of Light,” contains spoilers.]

Immediate Reaction

“No one gets out.” That’s what Sekou’s friend said after the Muslim-American protester was set free without explanation by the FBI. Sekou took offense at the time, knowing his own innocence, but his friend’s words turned out to be tragically prophetic, as the video-making self-righteous objector was (likely) killed in an explosion at the end of Episode 4, “A Flash of Light.”

Though we saw it coming as soon as he climbed into one of the vans Quinn photographed the night before, said knowledge did nothing to lessen the impact. The symbolism alone is enough to tear you up inside, as the implied murder of a Muslim-American by the U.S. government hits a little too close to home while foreign relations remain strained (to say the least) in our current political climate.

But the episode as a whole felt focused, lean, and emotionally honest. From »

Berlin: IFC Films Buys Armando Iannucci’s ‘The Death of Stalin’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 1:49 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

IFC Films has bought North American rights to “The Death of Stalin” out of the Berlin Film Festival’s European Film Market, Variety has learned.

Closed by Gaumont, the sale was in the seven figure range. A bidding war involved several distributors, including A24 and The Orchard, according to insiders.  The film is a comic look at how Joseph Stalin’s stroke in 1953 threw the Ussr into chaos and inspired a mad power grab among his top advisers. It reunites IFC with Armando Iannucci. The company released the writer and director’s “In the Loop,” which earned Iannucci an Oscar nomination for its screenplay. He also created the Emmy-winning political satire “Veep” for HBO. Adrian McLoughlin plays Stalin. Iannucci specializes in a kind of four-letter filled lunacy and has long applied his rapier wit to taking down the pettiness of bureaucratic infighting in the likes of “In the Loop,” “Veep, »

Rotterdam Film Review: ‘The Man’

9 February 2017 8:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nasty father-son relations are set off against the high-stakes art world in “The Man,” an ultra-slick, very Danish take on inter-generational rivalry and the treacherous battle to always remain on top. Entitled superstar artists usually capture the literate public’s imagination, especially when they misbehave, and there’s a certain amount of exaggerated fun in the way the lead character is conceived – something like a cross between Julian Schnabel and Jeff Koons. Director/scripter Charlotte Sieling returns to features after notable success on TV with Scandi series including “The Killing” and “The Bridge,” plus U.S. shows like “Homeland,” and while there’s a playful perversity in this, her second film, its attractions generate only passing diversions.

Artist-of-the-moment Simon (Søren Malling, best known for “Borgen”) is at the top of his game, with a spacious studio-cum-living space in downtown Copenhagen, a beautiful wife, a game mistress, and lots of assistants »

Writers Guild of America to Seek Streaming Compensation Hikes in Studio Contract Talks

9 February 2017 3:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leaders of the Writers Guild of America are placing a premium on increasing coverage and compensation for writers in the digital arena, according to the union’s latest message to its 12,000 members.

The WGA has started asking members to approve its “pattern of demands” letter for its upcoming negotiations with the major studios — a constitutionally required step that the guild must take before launching bargaining on a successor deal to its master contract. The current minimum basic agreement expires May 1. No date has been set yet for the start of negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

In a letter sent to members this week, the negotiating committee said, “The $49 billion annual operating profit accumulated by the six major media companies with whom we will be negotiating is double what their profit numbers were only a decade ago.

“Contrast that with the economic picture facing the members of our Guilds, »
