Udi fires up Burn, Burn, Burn

14 October 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Road trip comedy to co-star Laura Carmichael and Chloe Pirrie.

Paris-based Urban Distribution International (Udi) has picked up sales on Chanya Button’s upcoming road-trip comedy Burn, Burn, Burn on the eve of its shoot.

Downton Abbey actress Laura Carmichael and Chloe Pirrie (Shell), a Screen Star of Tomorrow and Bafta Breakthrough Brit in 2013, are set to co-star as two friends who travel across Britain to scatter the ashes of their late best friend Dan.

Other cast members include Alison Steadman and Nigel Planer.

The women take turns driving with Dan in the glove compartment, in a tupperware container, decreasing in volume as the trip progresses.

Burn Burn Burn is the perfect feelgood movie - the one you want to see after a hard day’s work with your best friend, or again on TV and VOD with your mum,” said Udi chief Frederic Corvez.

Venice Film Review: ‘The Goob’

26 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The louring skies and flat, scrubby landscape of Norfolk — an English county less frequently caressed on film than its lusher counterparts — lend an atmosphere of eerie distinction to otherwise well-tilled coming-of-age territory in “The Goob.” Guy Myhill’s uninvitingly titled debut feature gets significant mileage out of its golden-hour lensing and the bristly charisma of its younger cast members, but seems torn between manifold narrative possibilities in its story of a 16-year-old lad manning up against his mother’s boorish b.f. Heavy on incident but light on overarching direction, “The Goob” never escapes the sense that Myhill has rolled a number of viable first-film ideas into one, but the more arresting aspects of its construction and setting (notably the region’s raucous stock-car racing scene) should catch the eye of further fest programmers and some boutique distribs.

There are several visual compositions in Myhill’s film — two boys straddling a motorcycle, »

Rounding up all the winners from the 67th annual BAFTA Ee British Academy Film Awards..

Tonight marked biggest occasion in the British film calender as the stars of the big screen descended upon London's Royal Opera House as BAFTA hosts the 67th annual Ee British Academy Film Awards, with Stephen Fry once again serving as master of ceremonies for the ninth time.

Steve McQueen's drama 12 Years a Slave may have walked away with the top prize, fending off competition from American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Philomena and Gravity to win Best Film, but it was also a great night for Alfonso Cuaron's space-set thriller, which walked away with six awards including Best Director and Outstanding British Film.

2014 BAFTA Award Winners Led by '12 Years a Slave' and 'Gravity'

17 February 2014 6:38 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 BAFTA Awards took place, hosted by Stephen Fry from London's Royal Opera House and it was 12 Years a Slave taking Best Film and Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor while Gravity was honored for Outstanding British Film and Alfonso Cuaron was named Best Director. Interestingly enough, 12 Years a Slave only won the two awards while Gravity was the night's biggest winner taking home an additional four awards in technical categories, including Score (Steven Price) and Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). It's interesting to see a list of winners where Dallas Buyers Club wasn't nominated for a single award considering its two main characters played by Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto are, more or less, considered locks to win Best Actor and Supporting Actor. As for the BAFTA Awards, it was Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) taking Best Supporting Actor and while Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) added another Best Actress award to »

16 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts handed out its awards this evening, and while the BAFTAs have increasingly become a solid bellwether of how the Oscars will vote, tonight’s tallies do little to settle the virtual tie between Gravity and 12 Years a Slave.  Gravity won the most awards of the night with six, including Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron and Best British Film, but 12 Years a Slave took the top honors as Best Film as well as Best Actor for Chiwetel EjioforAmerican Hustle also had a fairly strong showing with three awards, including Best Supporting Actress for Jennifer Lawrence over 12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’O—one of this year’s toughest categories.

"Gravity" Dominates BAFTA Nominations

8 January 2014 1:16 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has announced the nominations for the British Academy Film Awards and Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" led the pack with 11 nominations including Best Film, British Film (who knew "Gravity" was a British movie?), Director for Cuaron, Screenplay for Cuaron and his son Jonas, and Actress for Sandra Bullock.

The biggest snub in my humble opinion was "Dallas Buyers Club" which appeared nowhere on the nominations list. Apparently, the British Academy did not deem Matthew McConaughey or Jared Leto award-worthy!

The BAFTA Awards will take place on Feb. 16 at the Royal Opera house in London. Will "Gravity" emerge as the victorious movie that night? And by the way, "Gravity" was my No. 1 favorite film of 2013!

Here's the complete list of BAFTA nominations:

BAFTA And The American Society Of Cinematographers Announce Their Nominations

8 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early this morning saw the announcement of the nominations for the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards for 2013. For the most part, they look like all of the other guild nominations we’ve seen over the past month or so (including all five director nominees who were just nominated for the DGA’s top award), but there are a few interesting differences to take note of.

First off, Philomena has a much stronger presence here, but given that it is a British film, it’s hardly surprising. You may also notice a lot of love for Behind the Candelabra, a film that was only shown on TV in the States, making it ineligible for theatrical awards.

However, aside from that, just about all the major players are here. Gravity leads the pack with 11 nominations, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Director, and Best Actress. 12 Years a »

Gravity Takes the 2014 BAFTA Nominations by Storm

8 January 2014 8:37 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity has already been a steady presence on ballots as award season nominations have rolled out, and the film is all over the 2014 BAFTA nominations. With 11 nominations including best picture, best director, and leading actress (Sandra Bullock), Gravity has bested runners-up American Hustle and 12 Years a Slave, which each earned nine nominations. Meanwhile, Spike Jonze's Her was snubbed entirely, and both Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto - already favorites for the American award shows - failed to receive nods.

2014 BAFTA Award Nominations Led by 'Gravity' with 11

8 January 2014 7:04 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 BAFTA Award nominations were announced and Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity led the way with 11 nominations, followed closely by 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle with ten and Captain Phillips with nine. This is no real surprise as I currently have Gravity taking nine nominations at the Oscars where it remains a player alongside American Hustle and, you guessed it, my Best Picture front-runner 12 Years a Slave. There's a lot of talk about the fact Dallas Buyers Club wasn't nominated, but it hasn't been released in the UK yet making it ineligible for this year's awards. Per BAFTA rules: "Films must be released theatrically in the UK, within the Academy awards year: 1 January to 31 December 2013. Films that open between 1 January and 14 February 2014 inclusive may be 'qualified' by Distributors by being screened to Academy Film Voting Members by 19 December 2013." I have no idea if Dallas Buyers was screened, but »

British Academy Goes Hollywood (Once Again): BAFTA Nominees 2014 Including Several Surprises (Adams In!)

BAFTA Awards 2014: ‘American Hustle,’ ‘Gravity,’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ tops (photo: BAFTA 2014 nominees Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence in ‘American Hustle’) Nominations for the 2014 BAFTA Awards were announced a little while ago. As usual, British Academy of Film and Television Arts have placed their focus on Big English-Language Productions — i.e., Hollywood and Anglo-Hollywood fare. (I mean, Gravity, Rush, and Saving Mr. Banks are considered "British" productions here.) Small British films and non-Hollywood productions have been — once again as usual — all but ignored. The 2014 BAFTA winners will be announced on February 16. Best Film: 12 Years A Slave Anthony Katagas, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Steve McQueen; American Hustle Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, Megan Ellison, Jonathan Gordon; Captain Phillips Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca; Gravity Alfonso Cuarón, David Heyman; Philomena Gabrielle Tana, Steve Coogan, Tracey Seaward.
