'British films need more support', says Lionsgate UK CEO

24 March 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Star Wars is not a British movie, says Lionsgate UK boss, who is concerned about Brexit impact and blockbuster saturation.

The British independent film sector needs more help from public and private investors, Lionsgate UK & Europe CEO Zygi Kamasa has said in an interview today [Mar 24].

Speaking on BBC radio, the La La Land distributor, known for backing successful UK films including Saoirse Ronan drama Brooklyn and Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood, renewed calls first made to Screen for adjustments to the UK tax credit and cinema ticket prices to favour British films.

“There are ways the government can look at improving and enhancing investment in British productions,” he said.

“I’m not sure the one size fits all tax credit is the best system. Culturally it is very important that British independent films are helped in a greater way. That extra revenue [from a revised tax credit] could help it.”

“The tax credit is great. I wouldn’t want to deter film companies »

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sally Wainwright Win Big at Royal Television Society Awards

23 March 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Phoebe Waller-Bridge in “Fleabag

Here’s some happy news about two very dark shows: writer-creators Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) and Sally Wainwright (“Happy Valley”) were the big winners at last night’s Royal Television Society (Rts) Awards, BBC News reports.

Waller-Bridge accepted the Breakthrough and Best Comedy Writer prizes, and Wainwright received Best Drama Writer and the Judges’ Award. “Happy Valley,” a crime drama starring Sarah Lancashire, was also honored with the Rts Drama Series award.

Fleabag,” which was recently renewed for a second season, is set in London and centers on a self-destructive young woman (Waller-Bridge) who owns a guinea pig-themed café. “I really wanted to hide a tragedy in a comedy and I really wanted to trick people,” Waller-Bridge has said. “I love the idea of disarming an audience through comedy and making them feel safe, and in turn making them vulnerable to twists and turns that they might not be expecting from a character.”

Waller-Bridge previously wrote and starred in “Crashing” about a group of twentysomethings using an old hospital as apartments. She is also working on BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” which centers on Eve, a fiercely intelligent security services operative who dreams of leaving her desk job behind to be a spy, and Villanelle, an elegant and proficient murderer. Waller-Bridge will serve as showrunner on the series.

Wainwright is keeping busy as well. Her new series about trailblazing landowner Anne Lister, “Shibden Hall,” will be produced by Lookout Point for BBC One and co-produced with HBO. Wainwright also wrote and directed the TV movie “To Walk Invisible: The Brontë Sisters.” Premiering March 26 on PBS, “To Walk Invisible” follows sisters Charlotte, Emily, and Anne (Finn Atkins, Chloe Pirrie, and Charlie Murphy) as they face “numerous obstacles to write some of the greatest novels in the English language.”

Julie Walters was honored at the Rts awards with the Lifetime Achievement award. “I simply can’t thank all the amazing people I have elbowed out of the way to get where I am,” Walters quipped as she picked up the prize. Probably best known as Mrs. Weasley from the “Harry Potter” films, the actress has appeared in the Hulu series “National Treasure,” “Brooklyn,” and “Brave.” Walters will next be seen in “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Finally, Sophie Okonedo was named Best Female Actor for her work in “Undercover.” The drama miniseries centers on lawyer Maya Cobbina (Okonedo), who “returns to Britain to become the first black Director of Public Prosecutions,” according to its synopsis. After accepting the position, “she begins to suspect that everything she knew about the man she has been married to for the past 20 years (Adrian Lester) is a lie.”

Okonedo received an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress in 2005 for her role in “Hotel Rwanda.” Her other credits include “The Hollow Crown,” “The Escape Artist,” and “After Earth.”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Sally Wainwright Win Big at Royal Television Society Awards was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Celebrating Irishness at the Movies

16 March 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

And look at that, not a leprechaun in sight.

For a relatively small island with a tiny film industry, Ireland certainly gets a lot of representation in movies — sometimes via other places masquerading as Ireland, other times by representing other places (the beach landing scene in Saving Private Ryan was shot in Wexford, for example) or worlds (Ahch-To in The Force Awakens), and occasionally it even gets to play itself. The island also exports a rather impressive number of cinematic talents considering the fact that, though every third or forth person you meet on the street in, say, Boston or Chicago (a lot of places, really) will claim Irish heritage, the Republic of Ireland has a population of slightly less than 4.6 million and Northern Ireland slightly more than 1.8 million, bringing the island to a total of only around 6.4 million. In other words, still around 2 million less than before the Famine, over »

13 March 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Getting to experience a Stanley Kubrick movie on the big screen is always a treat, especially in 2017.  But when you throw in a 50-peice orchestra performing a live score, that experience suddenly becomes even more jaw-dropping.

Such will be the case on April 8 when the musicians of the Wordless Music Orchestra take the stage at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn to accompany “Barry Lyndon.” The original score, which has been newly transcribed by composer Frank Cogliano, will be performed in its entirety and synced live to the film.

The Weekend Warrior 3/10/17: Kong: Skull Island, Brimstone, Canners

8 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out….but mostly movies. 

This Past Weekend:

It was absolutely no surprise that Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie Logan would top the box office, but it actually ended up doing even better than my prediction when actual numbers came in, grossing $88.3 million over the weekend. That makes it the fourth highest X-Movie opening (including Deadpool) but also the biggest R-rated opening for March, defeating 300’s once-impressive $70 million opening. It’s also the fourth highest R-rated opening of all time after Deadpool, The Matrix Reloaded and American Sniper.

The bigger surprise was how well Jordan Peele’s thriller Get Out held up in its second weekend, not only because it was going up against Logan, but also because high-profile horror films tend »

Berlinale 2017: Return to Montauk Review

20 February 2017 10:19 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

“What I’ve always loved about you, Max…” is a line we hear uttered in Volker Schlondorff’s Return to Montauk – which, unsurprisingly, is a film by an author (the talented Colm Toibin – behind the novel that inspired Brooklyn) about an author. Naturally self-indulgent in parts, the film also suffers from the frustrating trope of having a writer converse with dialogue similar to the words he gets paid to write – rather than talk normally like a normal human being.

Stellan Skarsgard plays Max, embarking on a book tour which leads him to New York City, promoting his latest piece of literature. It’s the city where an old flame resides, and he decides – despite being in a relationship with Clara (Susanne Wolff) – to get back in touch, arriving, uninvited to the workplace of Rebecca (Nina Hoss). Initially she has no intention of seeing him, but as he pleads for her attention, »

‘Return to Montauk’ Review: Nina Hoss Excels Opposite Stellan Skarsgård In Volker Schlöndorff’s Chatty Romance — Berlinale 2017

16 February 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Volker Schlöndorff’s “Return to Montauk” speaks from both sides of its mouth telling two very different tales. Hear it one way, and you’ll get a story of time and regret, an august Euro-drama that asks if love lost can ever be found anew. But come a bit closer, listen past the din, and you’ll hear something entirely different. This time the film is not asking any questions, but flat out saying: Self-delusion is a powerful weapon, and its greatest victims are often those who dare to wield it.

The film’s opening scene offers a helpful key to unlock what then follows. In one long, unbroken take, a man stares right into the camera and tells a story. He speaks of philosophy and of his father, and says that on the older man’s deathbed, he told his son that there are two kinds of regret – regret »

Berlin Review: ‘Return to Montauk’ is a Perceptive Reflection on the Past

15 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“No one gets over anything,” remarks Stellan Skarsgård’s Max, rekindling with old flame Rebecca years after they last met. He was a fledgling writer, she an idealistic young student. But then they split up, he moved back to Europe and she became a hotshot lawyer in New York City. And neither ‘got over’ it. Now Max reflects in the words of his new novel: life is defined by what you did that you regret, and what you did not do that you regret; “The things that come between do not matter.” Seeing each other again, they travel to Montauk, the village at the end of Long Island, to look out to the open ocean and search for what they’ve lost. But all they can do is look back.

Volker Schlöndorff’s latest film has something of the Allen-esque themes of regret and unchangeable fate (the New York setting »

BBC Films: who’s in the running for the top job?

14 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen considers potential runners and riders.

The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.

Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec

That timetable should come as a relief to those under consideration for the role and to wider industry who will want to begin building or growing their relationship with the new boss.

The job, which is considered one of the UK’s most prestigious posts, became vacant in autumn 2016 following the departure of long-time chief Christine Langan. BBC Films veteran Joe Oppenheimer has been serving as acting head of film since then.

The incoming head of film is expected to have an annual war chest of around £12m for production, cementing BBC Films’ position as one the three mainstays of public funding in the UK along with the BFI and Film4.

First Look At Adaptation Of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach Starring Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle

12 February 2017 4:08 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A shift or a strengthening of the wind brought them the sound of wavelets breaking on the shore below, like a distant shattering of glasses. The mist was lifting to reveal dense trees and foliage curving away above the shoreline to the east. They could see a luminous gray smoothness between the boughs and leaves which might have been the silky surface of the sea itself, or the lagoon, or the sky—it was difficult to tell. The altered breeze carried through the parted French windows an enticement, a salty scent of oxygen and open space that seemed at odds with the starched table linen, the corn-flour-stiffened gravy, and the heavy polished silver they were taking in their hands. The wedding lunch had been huge and prolonged. They were not hungry.” – On Chesil Beach.
