Christine Langan exit: industry reacts

20 July 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen canvasses industry opinion on Langan’s tenure and the prospects for one of the UK’s cornerstone funders.

There have been warm tributes to Christine Langan as news broke yesterday of her impending departure from BBC Films to join UK production outfit Baby Cow.

Attention is also now beginning to turn to who is likely to be her successor and what plans the BBC has for its film arm in the long run.

“Christine leaves BBC Films in good shape,” commented producer Stewart Mackinnon of Headline Pictures, who worked with the broadcaster’s film arm on titles including Quartet and The Invisible Woman, among other projects.

Pride producer David Livingstone noted Langan’s “incisiveness.”

“The thing I remember particularly about Christine is her giving very good notes about the final editing of the film (Pride). She was very clear and very precise, and with a light hand on the tiller,” Livingstone said.

Review: The Violators

12 July 2016 7:33 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Violators, directed by Helen Walsh, and starring Lauren McQueen (The Mill, Ordinary Lies) and Brogan Ellis (Waterloo Road) alongside Stephen Lord (Penny Dreadful, Shameless, Route Irish), Liam Ainsworth (Kajaki), Derek Barr (Pride) and newcomer Callum King Chadwick. The Violators is a wounding look at a young woman’s navigation through life whilst encountering dangerous men at every corner, chipping away at her hardened exterior. Bestselling author Helen Walsh (The Lemon Grove) has translated her interest in transgressive sexualities, gender and class onto film. With a female writer and director, and starring two female protagonists, The Violators is significant in a time where there is a perceived dearth of women film directors. The events of the story are shocking but the waves this film will make in terms of disturbing the male-dominated status quo of cinema will be more deeply felt. »

Chinese Twitter account teases Warcraft sequel

11 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Warcraft failed miserably at the U.S. box office, grossing just $24 million, the Duncan Jones-directed fantasy epic has performed rather well in China, helping to propel the film to a solid $430 million worldwide and making it the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time.

Universal and Legendary had franchise hopes for the movie (hence the Warcraft: The Beginning title in some markets), and it seems that the international box office may just help that to become a reality.

On the official Chinese Twitter account, a message has been posted which reads: “Warcraft’s theatrical run is coming to an end. But the chapter of a new decade has just begun. It’s a starting point, not an end point. We don’t say goodbye now because we’ll meet you again.”

Warcraft crosses $400 million worldwide

27 June 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last week’s news that Duncan Jones’ big screen adaptation of Warcraft has become the biggest video game movie of all-time, it has unlocked another achievement.

Warcraft never really found its feet domestically, and has dropped out of the Top 10 after just three weeks (earning around $2 million over the weekend), and its domestic total of $43 million is much lower than the likes of other adaptations like Silent Hill, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Mortal Kombat and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

However a fantastic campaign outside of the Us has pushed Warcraft over the $400 million mark to $412 million. If you go by the industry rule-of-thumb (that a movie needs to do 2.5x its budget in order to turn a profit), Warcraft is now making money. Expect to hear news of a sequel soon.

Great Moments in Gay - 'This kind of stuff' in Weekend (2011)

25 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In June we're celebrating favorite queer moments in cinema. Here's guest contributor Bill Curran on a pivotal low key scene in Weekend... 

Jamie: "What's going on?"

Russell: "Nothing… nothing's going on."

Pride is hard. We’re in a month filled with delirious rainbow floats, umpteen “Yass Queen” gifs, and appropriately lascivious street dancing down many city streets around the globe, and yet I’d like to pause and consider how pride is not merely happiness or acceptance, but respect. And respect is hard. 

Respect—one’s own worth in relation to others—is the motoring theme behind much of Andrew Haigh’s Weekend (2011). In this sense, if Weekend can be considered a landmark 21st century film (as indeed it should be, by any number of artistic rubrics), then the pivotal scene is this exchange between Russell (Tom Cullen) and his best (straight) mate Jamie (Jonathan Race). It is the sea »

Is 'The Girl With All the Gifts' the Zombie Film We All Need?

21 June 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Zombie and general apocalypse fatigue is a very real thing being experienced by fans these days. Zombie stories have always been popular but, thanks to the runaway success that was AMC's The Walking Dead, it seems like we keep getting the same type of story told over and over. The Girl with All the Gifts is a zombie film but it looks like nothing else out there. Colm McCarthy has directed this adaptation of the 2014 novel of the same name from comic book writer Mike Carey (Lucifer, The Unwritten), who also wrote the screenplay. It stars Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, and Paddy Considine and is the feature debut of young actor Sennia Nanua. /Film wrote: "There have been fresher approaches to zombies with films such as Zombieland, Warm Bodies, Life After Beth, Maggie, and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, but 28 Days Later was probably the last great zombie movie."

Warcraft is now the biggest video game movie of all-time

20 June 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we reported how The Angry Birds Movie had become the second biggest video game movie of all-time and theorised it would overtake Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time in the coming weeks. Well it looks like we were a little off base as the worldwide screenings of Warcraft have propelled it to the number one position.

In its second week of domestic release Warcraft dropped an incredible 71% to only take just $6 million, failing to compete against horror sequel The Conjuring 2 and animated juggernaut Finding Dory. However the film is still playing amazingly overseas – in China especially – and it made another $41 million worldwide over the weekend. This brings its total to $377 million, finally knocking Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time from the number one position its held for so long.

The Angry Birds Movie is now the third biggest video game movie of all-time, sitting $10 million »

Warcraft – Review

9 June 2016 10:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

So, we’re almost at the halfway point for movie year 2016. Since we’re a few weeks into the Summer flick season, the studios are trying to hedge their bets (and investments) by delivering entertainment with a recognizable name. There’s been a glut of sequels (two this very weekend), and two franchise films based on comic book characters (Cap’s latest is the year’s biggest hit). Hmmm, what other properties are ripe for cinematic exploitation? Ah yes, games! Just a few weeks ago Angry Birds, an animated romp based on an “app”, grabbed the number one box office slot from the shield-slinger! And this weekend sees a live action/CGI-animated hybrid based on an immensely popular on-line video game that began 22  years ago. Now, the studios have been trying to lure game players into the multiplex for years, well over twenty since those Super Mario Brothers made the »

Warcraft earns the second biggest opening in China ever with $46 million; passes $100 million worldwide

8 June 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the weekend’s box office, we reported that Duncan JonesWarcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning) had worked its way up to $70 million worldwide. Although some are theorising a pretty poor run domestically, it has performed exceptionally well in China.

After a whopping $7.6 million from midnight screenings, Warcraft brought home $46 million from its China opening according to first estimates. This is the second biggest opening for an American movie behind last year’s Furious 7, and it has vastly outperformed Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. It could end up with $170-$200 million in China alone.

If the movie can keep up this pace oversees, the $160 million video game movie might see some sequels after all.

Warcraft opens this weekend in North America, and experts say it could earn upwards of $25 million with a projected total of $75 million. »

Warcraft movie earns $70 million at the box office ahead of its domestic release

6 June 2016 2:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having opened in several territories last week to $31 million, Duncan Jones Warcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning) [read our review here] has doubled its box office in its second week of release.

The movie was released in several more international territories including Spain, Italy and a full release in the UK and brought its box office total to an estimated $70 million. With a budget of $160 million, this is still not a brilliant number.

Warcraft: The Beginning get its full domestic release next week which will be the tell-tale sign of the movie’s box office success. Reviews have not been kind and that will have some impact on the film’s performance. It’s going up against James Wan’s horror sequel The Conjuring 2 and Now You See Me 2, so it will be interesting to see if Warcraft can break out of the pack and prove Sequelitis.

Duncan Jones reveals that 40 minutes were cut from his Warcraft movie

2 June 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the big sticking points from a lot of the critical drubbing of Duncan Jones’ movie adaptation Warcraft [read our review here] is the film’s break-neck pace. Well it turns out – as Luke and Oli theorised on the Flickering Myth Podcast last week – that around 40 minutes were cut from the movie.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Jones reveals that his original cut of Warcraft (or Warcraft: The Beginning as its known elsewhere) was 2 hours 40 minutes, and this was trimmed down to 2 hours. One of the scenes to get cut? An Easter egg that would have tied Warcraft to his previous two movies Moon and Source Code.

“If you know Moon or Source Code, there’s this very sweet, very talented guy named Chesney Hawkes who wrote this really, really big hit in Britain called ‘I Am The One And Only,'” he jokes. “I used it as an alarm clock in Moon, »

Warcraft movie opens to $31 million worldwide

31 May 2016 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having opened in twenty territories over the weekend, Duncan Jones’ long-developed video game movie Warcraft: The Beginning (or just Warcraft in North America) has earned around $31 million.

The film debuted in territories such as Russia (where it earned the most), Germany, Sweden and limited screenings here in the UK. The film opens fully this coming weekend along with Italy, Netherlands and Spain and opens in North American on June 10th.

With a reported budget of $160 million, Warcraft will need to earn around $400 million if it is to be seen as profitable for Universal. Video game movies have a previous track record of performing quite poorly domestically but fairly well overseas so the studio might be banking on that success by opening it there first.

Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil series topped out at $240 million worldwide, while Disney’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time still holds the top spot with $336 million. »

Warcraft review: “A massive misfire on an epic scale”

26 May 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Warcraft review: A CGI-heavy, very uninvolving adaptation that could epically end the franchise before it even really begins.

Warcraft review by Paul Heath, May 2016.

Warcraft review

We’re not sure if we’re meant to be referring to Duncan Jones‘ new adaptation of the famous game World Of Warcraft as simply Warcraft or Warcraft: The Beginning. Our press screening offered the former during its title crawl as opposed to the threat of the latter, but this big-budget summer tent-pole has the definite intent to lay down the foundations for future instalments.

The film is based on Blizzard Entertainment’s global phenomenon of the same name, a world of conflict where orcs and humans are at odds with one another, intent on colonising each other’s neighbouring worlds, which are connected through a mysterious portal. Wacraft largely takes place on the human realm of Azeroth where this portal, opened by Gul’dan, »

John Carney interview: Sing Street, X-Men, Hitchcock & more

The director of Once, Begin Again and Sing Street talks to us about his new film, getting films noticed, and Hollywood...

Well, Sing Street is just great. The new movie from writer-director John Carney, it tells the story of a young Irish teenager by the name of Cosmo, who – long story short – sets up a band to impress a girl. Yet that sells a funny, nerdy and quite brilliant film short.

Director John Carney – off the back of Once and Begin Again – made the movie. And he spared us some time for a chat about it…

Huge congratulations on Sing Street, which is one of our favourite movies of the year. It’s interesting, though, that it opens opposite a not-very-good X-Men movie this week, and they’re going head to head!

Oh great! [Laughs] That’s like Bernie Sanders and Trump!

I did wonder how you felt about it! »
