Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘La La Land’ Ride Oscar Wave on Soft Holiday Weekend

15 January 2017 1:23 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As far as the box office is concerned, the Martin Luther King holiday weekend might better be dubbed Memorial Day, as six new wide releases are weak or dying. Despite a wide array of product which should have boosted totals, this weekend looks to be down 19 per cent from last year.

On the other hand, Oscar contenders “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox) and “La La Land”(Lionsgate) continued to surf cresting audience enthusiasm to place first and second for the three day weekend.

School vacation Monday results may boost Universal’s “Sing” and possibly Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” to higher positions. Animated musical “Sing” is holding well, with a 33 per cent drop. “Rogue One,” though now the top-grossing 2016 domestic release, is falling far faster than juggernaut “Force Awakens” a year ago.

Oscars: VFX Contenders Put On a Show at Academy’s Annual Bake-Off

13 January 2017 9:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ annual visual effects bake-off sees each of the 10 final contenders for the Oscar present a five-minute introduction and a 10-minute reel. For the first time ever this year, the artists behind each entry answered questions in a panel-style Q&A.

At the close of the evening, though, visual effects legend Bill Taylor closed things out with a speech urging fellow members to vote for the “best visual effects in a movie, not the best movie with visual effects.” With internal criticism of last year’s “Ex-Machina” victory still on many members’ minds, his comments struck some as a “warning,” and others as unnecessary and inaccurate.

A24’s surprise winner took down four big studio and major effects house contenders at the 88th annual Oscars: “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “The Martian,” “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” This year, the »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Game of Thrones lead nominations for the 2017 Ves Awards

12 January 2017 4:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Visual Effects Society has announced the nominations for the 15th annual Ves Awards, with Disney and Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story leading the feature film field with seven nominations, followed by Doctor Strange and Kubo and the Two Strings with six apiece. On the small screen, HBO’s Game of Thrones racked up eleven nominations, including eight for the penultimate episode of season six, ‘Battle of the Bastards’.

The artistry, ingenuity and passion of visual effects practitioners around the world have come together to create truly remarkable imagery in a variety of media,” said Mike Chambers, Visual Effects Society Chair (via Variety).  “We are seeing best in field work that elevates the art of storytelling and engages the audience in new and innovative ways.  The Ves Awards is the only venue that showcases and honors these outstanding artists across a wide range of disciplines, and we »

Film Club: Ben Affleck and Mark Wahlberg misstep back to Boston

12 January 2017 3:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

On this week’s Film Club, a double feature of beefy Bostonians! First up, Film Editor A.A. Dowd and Staff Writer Ignatiy Vishnevetsky sit down to talk about Ben Affleck’s latest effort as a director-star, the 1920s gangster saga Live By Night. They then pivot to another new drama starring a homecoming Boston boy: Patriots Day, in which Mark Wahlberg reteams with Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon director Peter Berg for a dramatization of the Boston Marathon bombing. Both films go wide this weekend after limited-release runs in December. Find out why our film staff didn’t respond very positively to either.

'Hidden Figures' Poised to Top MLK Weekend Ahead of Several New & Expanding Releases

12 January 2017 2:53 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

It's shaping up to be a competitive Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with three new wide releases hitting theaters along with two major expansions and the moderate expansion of Martin Scorsese's Silence. Yet, even with that being the case, after narrowly edging out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for the #1 spot last weekend, Hidden Figures is looking at a more decisive victory this weekend as the film adds more than 800 theaters. The new releases include STX's PG-13 horror The Bye Bye Man, Paramount is finally delivering Monster Trucks and Open Road will premiere the Jamie Foxx vehicle Sleepless into just over 1,800 theaters. In addition to new releases Lionsgate and CBS Films brings Patriots Day to audiences nationwide and Warner Bros. will do the same for Ben Affleck's Live by Night, but while the former is looking at a solid debut the latter has struggled in limited release. »

Box Office: ‘Hidden Figures,’ ‘Patriot’s Day’ in Tight Race, ‘Monster Trucks,’ ‘Live by Night’ Brace to Flop

12 January 2017 8:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A mixture of prestige films, blockbuster hopefuls, and passion projects will hit theaters over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. It promises to be a crowded time at the multiplexes with three new films bowing and several awards hopefuls expanding nationwide.

“They’re going to be lined up like airplanes coming in for landing,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “There’s going to be a lot of moviegoing, but the fragmentation of the audience will impact ticket sales.”

When the dust clears, Fox’s “Hidden Figures” may be able to hold off the new contenders to capture the top slot for the second consecutive weekend. The historical drama about a team of African-American Nasa employees who grappled with prejudice in the early days of the space program is eyeing a $20 million second weekend. It will be a close race for first. CBS Films and Lionsgate’s »

‘Patriots Day’ Starring Mark Wahlberg Grips You By The Throat And Never Lets Up [Review]

11 January 2017 2:27 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Peter Berg is no stranger to documenting harrowing true stories. This year already, he directed “Deepwater Horizon,” a muscular recreation of the worst oil spill in U.S. history. “Patriots Day,” however, is different. Like Oliver Stone’s divisive “World Trade Center,” it dredges up an all-too recent real-life attack on American soil for dramatic, and presumably cathartic, purposes — surely a noble endeavor, but also a potentially polarizing one.

How BAFTA, the Producers Guild, and Other Groups May Rewrite the 2017 Oscar Odds

10 January 2017 12:04 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While the Golden Globes build momentum for their winners, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association can be whimsical. The latest collection of nominations, however, are a more solemn bunch. And while the HFPA has zero overlap with Oscar voters, there’s a few hundred Academy members who also hold membership in British counterpart BAFTA, and even more with the Producers Guild, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Visual Effects Society .

So what did we learn from Tuesday’s nods?

Well, “La La Land” is still on track to garner more Oscar nominations than any other film. It has one rival in scale and scope: “Arrival.” The sci-fi drama also got support from BAFTA with nine nominations through the categories, including director Denis Villeneuve and actress Amy Adams. “Manchester By the Sea” landed six and “Moonlight,” four, not including a Director nomination.

In a pre-Berlin Film Festival move, Participant Media has selected Lionsgate to represent the international rights to Participant’s upcoming slate of narrative feature films and select documentaries.

The deal will cover Participant films in all territories outside of North America. Lionsgate will initially introduce two Participant films to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next month: Jose Padilha’s “Entebbe” and Rupert Wyatt’s sci-fi thriller “Captive State.”

Entebbe” stars Rosamund Pike, Daniel Bruhl, and Eddie Marsan. “Captive State” is set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after it has been occupied by an extraterrestrial force.

Arrival and La La Land lead the 2017 BAFTA nominationsArrival and La La Land lead the 2017 BAFTA nominationsAdriana Floridia1/10/2017 11:22:00 Am

The BAFTAs are the British equivalent of the Oscars, and although the awards are given overseas, they still factor into the American awards race.

Yet again, we see the same three films having a strong presence here: La La Land, Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight. However, BAFTA is also spreading the love to other awards favourites like Arrival, Nocturnal Animals, and Lion.

Some interesting omissions here include Denzel Washington for Fences. His co-star Viola Davis is nominated in the supporting category, but it looks as though BAFTA went for other potential Oscar contenders Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge and Viggo Mortensen for Captain Fantastic. They're also the first major awards body to nominate Jake Gyllenhaal's leading performance in Nocturnal Animals.

The Cinema Audio Society has announced its nominees for the 53rd Annual Cas Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing for 2016 in seven categories.

On the film side, strong contenders like “La La Land,” “Rogue One” and “Zootopia” picked up nods, while television series like “Game of Thrones,” “blackish” and “Stranger Things” also received nominations. For the first year, the Cas is honoring Documentary films, with nods like “O.J.: Made in America” and “13th” rounding out this inaugural category.

Missing from the film nods are more than a few surprises, including “Deepwater Horizon,” “The Jungle Book” and “Silence.”

“We are blessed this year with a rich portfolio of Cinema Audio art applied. As the creative contributions of sound mixing to modern filmmaking becomes more obvious to the world at large, these productions truly represent the talents of our community,” said Mark Ulano, Cas President, of the announcement.
