The Babadook, Russell Crowe and Mia Wasikowska Score at "Aussie Oscars"

3 December 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here again to look at the Aacta Awards - aka the "Australian Oscars" - which announced their annual nominations last night. Lots of big names spread across the field and some welcome nods to smaller films.

It was an expectedly big day for Russell Crowe's directorial debut, The Winter Diviner. While ol' Rusty may be miffed (justifiable? I'm not sure, I have not seen his film yet) that he missed out on a directing nomination, he surely can't be disappointed for too long since his film is scattered all over the nominations. In fact, with eight, the Wwi drama received the second-biggest haul of the day. Somewhat less expected, however, was the film that leads the nomination tally: Predestination. A period-set sci-fi thriller from the Spierig Brothers (Daybreakers) that stars Ethan Hawke as a time-traveller whose life intersects with a mysterious man whose story spans time, space, fate, »

Watch: Eerie, Haunting Trailer For 'Strangerland' Starring Nicole Kidman And Hugo Weaving

21 November 2014 1:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We could really use a good movie from Nicole Kidman. This year she starred in the terribly reviewed "Before I Go To Sleep," the forgettable "The Railway Man," and her Cannes opener "Grace Of Monaco" was savaged by critics. Her next gig? "Paddington." Thankfully, "Strangerland" holds some promise and the haunting first teaser trailer has arrived. Co-starring Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes, the story follows a couple whose relationship is pushed to its breaking point after their two teenage children disappear into the outback. Penned by Fiona Seres and Michael KinironsKim Farrant (documentary “Naked on the Inside,” Australian TV show “Rush”) makes her feature debut on the project. And frankly, this looks like the kind of gritty, no frills movie Kidman needs to bounce back with. We're crossing our fingers that the moodiness on display adds up to something memorable.

Market share plunges for Australian films

10 November 2014 4:11 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Australian films. share of the national box-office this year is destined to fall well short of last year.s 3.5% and the 10-year average of 3.8%.

Through last Sunday the 31 local features and documentaries released this year, plus around 20 titles that carried over from 2013 or earlier years, had racked up $19.6 million.

The year-to-date gross is $908.9 million so that represents a market share of 2.18%. Still to come are Paul Fenech's comedy Fat Pizza vs Housos (November 27), Jon Hewitt.s Turkey Shoot reboot and Jim Lounsbury.s mystery drama Love is Now (both December 4) and Russell Crowe.s The Water Diviner (Boxing Day).

So by year.s end the market share will probably be the lowest since 2004.s 1.3%.

Last year Aussie films and docs accumulated $38.5 million, boosted by The Great Gatsby.s $27.4 million. This year only The Railway Man (which launched on Boxing Day), Wolf Creek 2 and Tracks surpassed $2 million and no other title cracked $1 million. »
