Second Look: Smashed, Buffalo Soldiers, Killing Them Softly And More (Episode 3)

22 July 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With so many films releasing each year, it’s impossible to catch them all. No matter how many movies you see, there are always a handful that manage to get by. You pledge to catch them at a later date, or maybe when they hit Blu-Ray, but we all know how it goes. You never get around to watching them and as more and more time passes, they get completely forgotten. It’s a shame, too, because there really are so many great movies that get overlooked each and every year and unfortunately, don’t achieve the mainstream success that they deserve.

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re hoping to remedy this problem by starting a new web show titled Second Look, where each week we’ll suggest several great movies that you might not have seen yet. On the last episode, we presented you with Haywire, The Bling Ring, »

Affluenza Review

10 July 2014 10:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Many who hear about Affluenza may at first assume that the movie is a look inside the thoroughly depressing case of Ethan Couch, a Texas teen who drove drunk and caused a crash, killing four and injuring two. During his trial, a psychologist argued Couch was a victim of “affluenza,” as the product of rich parents who never set boundaries for him or taught him to understand the relationship between actions and consequences. The case made national headlines when the judge sentenced him to ten years of probation and therapy in a cushy rehab facility – a sentence that defied basic ideas of both logic and justice with its leniency.

Unfortunately, Affluenza does not explore that inflammatory case – however, its teenage subjects are certainly comparable to Couch. Set in pre-recession 2008 on privileged Long Island, the film follows an aspiring photographer named Fisher (Ben Rosenfield) who comes to stay with his upper-class relatives after his parents divorce. »

‘Teen Wolf’ Takes $11.5 Million as Top California Production Tax Credit

1 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The fifth season of MTV’s “Teen Wolf” will receive $11.5 million in tax credits, the highest of the 26 new allocations from California’s Film and Television Tax Credit program for the 2014-15 fiscal year.

With $77.6 million, “Teen Wolf” and 11 other continuing series took the lion’s share of the $100 million in allocations.

“Teen Wolf,” which relocated from Georgia in 2012, will receive a credit for nearly 25% of its $46.3 million in qualified costs. Most projects receive 20% allocations, but TV series that filmed all previous episodes outside California are eligible for a 25% credit.

“Teen Wolf” topped a pair of Horizon series — “Rizzoli & Isles” with $8.9 million and “Pretty Little Liars” with $8.4 million — followed by  Warner Bros.’ “Major Crimes” with $7.9 million.

The California Film Commission, which administers the five-year-old program, disclosed the allocations Tuesday. It had made the initial lottery selections from 497 applications on June 2, but held off for a month in order to verify eligibility. »

Emma Watson under the Scanner by UK Immigration

30 June 2014 10:26 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Emma Watson has come under fire after new reports suggest that the actress may have illegally employed her maid to work in the U.K.

According to the Independent, British Immigration officials are investigating claims that the Harry Potter star's housekeeper may have been working unlawfully at the 24-year-old star's nearly $3.5 million London home.

The Bling Ring beauty allegedly brought her American maid to the U.K. on a tourist visa, which prohibits any foreign citizen from working in the U.K., although Watson's housekeeper was believed to be employed overseas from September 2013 to the beginning of February 2014.

Watson's housekeeper, who reportedly began working for the actress at her New York apartment in early 2013, was reportedly stopped by British Immigration officials, who questioned how the U.S.-native planned to fund her stay in Britain. Border Agency officials are said to have begun investigating the case after they received a »

How I Shot That (Laff Edition): Tight Scheduling and Getting Permits for 'Echo Park'

18 June 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Echo Park" is Amanda Marsalis' first feature film. She collaborated with cinematographer Jason McCormick, who was first Ad to Harris Savides on films such as "The Bling Ring," "Restless," "Somewhere," "Greenberg" and "Zodiac." [Editor's Note: Indiewire reached out to filmmakers with films playing at the 20th La Film Festival (June 11-19) to ask them about how they shot their indie, and what advice they had for other filmmakers. We'll be posting their responses throughout the run of the festival. Go Here for the master list.] What camera and lens did you use? Jason says: We used a Red Epic and an old set of spherical lenses from Panavision I really love. What was the most difficult shoot on your movie and how did you pull it off? I would just say always get a permit if at all possible. Jason says: The shoot wasn't really ever difficult in terms of technical challenges. Just logistically working through such a tight schedule with limited resources was really the biggest task. »

A24: The House of Star-Altering Performances

18 June 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Lionsgate was a pioneering label for brooding dramas, compelling imports and insightful nonfiction until it partnered with Tyler Perry, Jigsaw, and a certain Ya book series. Miramax was the flagship of envelope-pushing American indies until the Weinsteins became better known for re-cutting films than for supporting filmmakers. Focus Features was the home of young early-aughts visionaries like Sofia Coppola, Michel Gondry and Joe Wright until CEO James Schamus was ousted to “broaden its portfolio.” As indie distributors and studio subsidiaries refocus their efforts towards studio-sized earnings, their previously coherent brand identities as vessels of imaginative filmmaking quickly fade out. Since the indie boom of the ‘90s gave way to the ‘00’s bottom lines, it’s been increasingly difficult and frustrating to rely on name distributors to continually devote their efforts toward risky films. All of which makes it all the more incredible that A24 has made itself into a distributor dedicated to anything but convention – and, at »

Arthouse Audit: 'The Rover' and 'Signal' Open Soft; Sundancers 'Ivory Tower' and 'Hellion' Ok

15 June 2014 1:38 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fresh from Cannes, both "The Rover" and wider release "How to Train Your Dragon 2" opened this weekend. Just a year ago enterprising A24 opened "The Bling Ring," but the comparison ends there. "The Rover" opened to only a fraction of the initial returns that Sofia Coppola's film received, and, despite decent reviews and previously successful directing and acting elements, the film fell well below expectations. The same company's "Obvious Child" showed some promise in its second weekend expansion, but the overall specialized market is lagging behind healthier grosses over recent months. Opening "The Rover" (A24) - Criticwire: B; Metacritic: 66; Festivals include: Cannes 2014, Sydney 2014 $70,000 in 5 theaters; PSA (per screen average): $14,000 Placed in five top New York/Los Angeles theaters, backed with strong A24 marketing, "The Rover" looked positioned to be a potential strong opener.

Anna Review

3 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jorge Dorado’s Anna, previously known as Mindscape, has drawn unfavorable comparisons to Christopher Nolan’s Inception, due to the fact that both films involve a man peering inside the minds and memories of others to uncover long-hidden secrets. However, if you’re interested in checking out this thriller, the absolute best thing you could do for yourself would be to get that comparison out of your head. Anna is nowhere near as creative, original or exciting as that now-classic mind-bender. It’s not even on the same level. Instead, Anna is a much smaller-scale affair, content to deliver passable thrills and predictable twists while giving its two leads, Mark Strong and Taissa Farmiga, plenty of time to shine.

If that sounds like a critique, it is and it isn’t (cue Inception foghorn). Though Anna doesn’t bring much of anything to the table – and many will fault it for that, »

‘Palo Alto’ a fine debut feature for another talented member of the Coppola family

29 May 2014 9:14 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Palo Alto

Written and directed by Gia Coppola

USA, 2013

The disaffection of youth is a familiar theme in modern American cinema, and one of its most recognizable creators is Sofia Coppola. It’s hard not to think of her films, from The Virgin Suicides to The Bling Ring, while watching Palo Alto, the debut feature from her niece, Gia Coppola. In fact, it would be extraordinarily easy to claim nepotism throughout the production, from Coppola to two of her leads, Emma Roberts and Jack Kilmer. But thankfully, in spite of these various ties to older generations of Hollywood luminaries, Palo Alto is a well-crafted ensemble piece about how teenage disconnection rarely shifts that dramatically from era to era.

Roberts plays April, who’s best known among her social group as being the good girl. (Here, at least, “good girl” is a term with a flexible definition, as even before her various romances begin, »
