Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Berlin: One-Take Wonder 'Victoria' Acquired by Adopt Films

16 February 2015 12:58 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Adopt Films has acquired its first 2015 Berlinale title, Sebastian Schipper’s thriller “Victoria.” Adopt and international sales agent Match Factory previously collaborated on Berlinale prize winners Christian Petzold’s “Barbara” and Miguel Gomes’ “Tabu,” and Hany Abu Assad’s Oscar-nominated "Omar." Variety writes: "Fly away, 'Birdman' — there’s a new one-shot wonder in town, and unlike that digitally augmented opus, Sebastian Schipper’s heart-in-mouth heist thriller 'Victoria' isn’t performing any high-tech sleight of hand. Genuinely shot across 22 locations in a single bobbing, weaving, 134-minute take, this exhilarating tale of a winsome Spanish nightclubber who finds herself spontaneously caught up in a bank robbery during one wild night on the Berlin tiles is undeniably a stunt, but one suffused with a surprising degree of grace and emotional authenticity." The film was shot by Norwegian-born cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen, who just won a »

Berlin: Memento buys Second Mother

2 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Sundance winner picked up from The Match Factory

Memento has inked a deal with The Match Factory for French rights to Sundance winner The Second Mother, which will get its European premiere in Berlin’s Panorama section.

The two companies collaborated previously on Joachim Trier’s local box office success Oslo, August 31st.

After its well-received world premiere in Sundance, actors Regina Casé and Camila Márdila picked up the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting.

Director Anna Muylaert’s comedy of manners, about familial bonds and class in contemporary Brazil is produced by Gullane Filmes, the Brazilian co-producer of Tabu by Miguel Gomes.

“The Second Mother offers us at the same time an intense multi-layered drama and a heart-warming comedy,” said Alexandre Mallet-Guy from Memento Films.

“Very well directed with terrific performances, it is the perfect feel good movie which will bring hope and happiness to the audience. I was so »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #13. Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann

9 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Toni Erdmann

Director: Maren Ade // Writer: Maren Ade

Though many be unfamiliar with her work, which is a pity since both her previous films are available in the Us, director Maren Ade happens to be one of the most vibrant new voices in German cinema. Her 2003 debut The Forest For the Trees received a rather hushed festival debut in Germany before going to collect a Special Jury prize at Sundance. Her powerful and exquisite follow-up was 2009′s Everyone Else, which took home the Silver Berlin Bear at that year’s Berlin film festival. Generally taking a long time between projects, we’ve been patiently waiting for her third feature, Toni Erdmann, which was initially announced back in 2012. With filming at last completed, we’re hoping to finally catch a glimpse of the film which we know little about except that it’s about a father trying to connect with his adult daughter. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #60. Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights

7 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Arabian Nights

Director: Miguel Gomes// Writers: Miguel Gomes, Telmo Churro, Mariana Ricardo

Miguel Gomes’ 2012 film Tabu managed to elevate the Portugeuse filmmaker’s international status when it picked up two awards at the Berlin film festival that year, and had a hand in at last making his 2008 Cannes premiered sophomore feature Our Beloved Month of August at last available for DVD consumption in the Us. Experimentally inclined, Gomes next tackles the famed Arabian nights tale but abandons all except for the structure to depict a modern Portugal in peril under Troika control. It’s the most ambitious treatment of the material since Pasolini adapted Arabian Nights back in 1974. We’ll be expecting stunning musical interplay and visually innovative sequences.

Cast: Carloto Cotta, Joana de Verona, Adriano Luz

Producer: O Som e a Fúria

U.S. Distributor: Rights available

Release Date: Rumored to be aiming for a Spring 2015 release, we’re »
