London Critics’ Awards: ‘La La Land’ Comes Out On Top, Huppert Doubles Up

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

The London Film Critics’ Circle tends to spread the wealth between multiple films in any given year, but their affections were even more split than usual Sunday. Through the evening, you might have felt the wind blowing in the direction of “Moonlight,” “Manchester by the Sea” or “Love & Friendship,” all of which took a brace of awards at tonight’s ceremony at the May Fair Hotel in London — or even last year’s Oscar winner “Son of Saul,” a 2016 release in the U.K. that pulled off a surprise director of the year win for first-timer László Nemes.

But in an eleventh-hour coup that echoed its triumph in the NYFCC voting last month, it was hot Oscar favorite “La La Land” that danced off with the film of the year prize, despite winning no other trophies. In what I’m told was one of the tightest vote counts in the Circle’s history, »

Sundance Film Review: Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara in ‘A Ghost Story’

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

Two days after David Lowery wrapped his big-budget “Pete’s Dragon” remake for Disney, he dove into a tiny personal project back in Texas: “A Ghost Story” cost next to nothing, took place almost entirely in a single house, and called for minimal special effects (the ghost in question wears a bed sheet for most of the movie). The result is a classic example of the “one for them, one for me” strategy that helps indie artists maintain their sanity while also working for studios. The audience for this quiet art-film curio will be decidedly small, but it’s clear why Lowery felt compelled to tell it.

Inspired by an argument the filmmaker had with his wife (he didn’t want to abandon the old house where he could feel the echoes of not only the memories they had shared, but also the past tenants who had inhabited it), “A Ghost Story »

Arthouse Audit: ‘The Red Turtle’ Swims, ‘Lion’ Roars at Specialty Box Office

10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As indie buyers determine the fate of this year’s Sundance entries, the specialty market continues to swing dramatically between awards players and soft newbies. New limited releases remain flat.

Showing particular strength is Sundance attendee Harvey Weinstein’s designated Oscar contender “Lion,” which saw a tiny drop as it slowly heads toward wider release. It could get a sizable Oscar boost over the next few weeks. Next week after nominations expect wider breaks for some pictures that have played in theaters for while.

Opening

The Red Turtle (Sony Pictures Classics) – Metacritic: 89; Festivals include: Cannes, Toronto 2016

$21,811 in 3 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $7,270; Cumulative: $39,435

This Belgian animated Cannes breakout (a rare European production from Japan’s Studio Ghibli) opened with high-end reviews in its official initial release in New York and Los Angeles (after an earlier Oscar-qualifying one-week run). The grosses didn’t rise to the level its earlier acclaim promised. »

Sundance: Amazon Studios swoops on 'The Big Sick' in $12m deal

13 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive Update: The company stamped its name on Park City for the second year in a row following a Saturday night negotiation for Michael Showalter’s crowd-pleaser.

Amazon Studios acquired Us rights to The Big Sick from FilmNation and UTA Independent Film Group and is also understood to have taken a raft of territories including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, China, India, Russia, Malaysia and Poland.

FilmNation will license theatrical rights in those territories on behalf of Amazon Studios on the proviso that the latter holds pay-tv rights.

The company will appoint a theatrical partner and stage a Us release later this year before rolling out the film on its Prime Video streaming platform. Screen was the first to report on Saturday that Amazon Studios was in the hunt and the asking price was eight figures.

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and Fox Searchlight were understood to have been pursuing The Big Sick, which enjoyed »

'La La Land' wins London critics' best film award

16 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Another Academy Award favourite, Casey Affleck, was named best actor for Manchester By The Sea, while Isabelle Huppert, gaining strength as the season progresses, claimed best actress for Things To Come and took the Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film.

Laszlo Nemes was the surprise of the night as he won best director for Son Of Saul, while awards heavyweight Kenneth Lonergan earned the best screenwriter award for Manchester By The Sea.

Moonlight claimed both supporting acting categories for Naomie Harris and Mahershala Ali, who tied with Tom Bennett for Love & Friendship.

Kate Beckinsale won the British/Irish Actress prize for Love & Friendship and Andrew Garfield took corresponding actor honours for Hacksaw Ridge and Silence.

Sundance: Amazon Lands ‘The Big Sick’ in Blockbuster Deal (Exclusive)

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

In one of the biggest deals in the history of Sundance, Amazon Studios has landed distribution rights to “The Big Sick” for about $12 million, Variety has learned.

The pact comes on the heels of the romantic comedy’s rousing premiere on Friday night. The film is about a Pakistani-American comedian (Kumail Nanjiani) whose relationship with his girlfriend (Zoe Kazan) is nearly derailed over cultural differences and a health crisis. Nanjiani co-wrote the heavily autobiographical script with his wife Emily V. Gordon.

The negotiations for North American rights and other foreign territories stretched into midnight on Saturday. Nanjiani told Variety earlier this week that he wanted the film to get a theatrical release. Unlike Netflix, its rival streaming service, Amazon is a big proponent of the theatrical experience, with all of its films getting at least some kind of theatrical run.

The Big Sick” sparked interest from a number of distributors, »

Sundance: ‘Mudbound’ Premieres to Rapturous Standing Ovation and Oscar Buzz

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

A year ago, “Manchester by the Sea” debuted on the first Saturday of Sundance 2016. That same magic must have rubbed off on Dee Rees’ “Mudbound,” an operatic drama about two families set in 1940s Mississippi Delta that premiered to the most enthusiastic standing ovation of this year’s Park City gathering so far.

The packed crowd at the Eccles Theatre included a number of moguls and heavyweights, among them Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, AMC chief Josh Sapan, Roadside Attractions’ co-founder Howard Cohen, Bleecker Street chief Andrew Karpen and Amazon StudiosTed Hope and Bob Berney.

Insiders predict that “Mudbound” is likely to land a deal in the eight-figure range, following a heated bidding war. That said, while the film is powerful, the subject matter and violence caused scattered walkouts toward the end of the picture. To work commercially, the film will need awards love and strong reviews.

Buyer or Seller, Selling a Movie At Sundance 2017 Is More Complicated Than Ever

21 January 2017 10:50 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On Friday in Park City, the bidding wars opened for business. Fox Searchlight co-president Nancy Utley began and ended her day at the Eccles Theatre, where the Sundance premieres culminated with the big acquisition title, “The Big Sick,” directed by Michael Showalter and produced by Judd Apatow. Appetites remain high for Sundance titles, but last year proved to be a teachable moment for indie distribution: There’s a big difference between being able to compete for a title, and successfully gauging what will work in the marketplace.

“The marketplace is always changing, but now it is changing more rapidly, both on the production and consumer side,” said Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula. “The bar for theatrical viability keeps going up. While we are talking about other models, Searchlight is still a global, theatrically driven company, trying to make money on each individual title. We haven’t changed our acquisition calculus, but »

There ought to be a place on a screen for every kind of film story. True, old movies fronted a mostly false consensus picture of the world, claiming that there was a ‘normal’ baseline for our lives. The reality of most social issues was ignored in favor of pleasant fairy tales where all conflicts could be solved on a personal level. After all, movies were considered entertainment first, and carriers of vital social truths maybe about 97th. But then and now, there »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

Oscar Nominations Predictions: Expect Lotsa ‘La La Land’ But What Else?

20 January 2017 10:59 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

La La Land” will lead all films with 13 Oscar nominations. “Arrival” will be second with nine, followed by “Moonlight” with eight and “Manchester by the Sea” with seven. Five of the acting nominees will be African American. At least, that’s what you get if you add up my predictions for the Oscar nominations: a monster haul for “La La Land,” which if I’m right would end up with more noms than any movie since “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in 2009. So I’m probably overstating the Academy’s love for “La La Land” — but then, I scaled back. »

Sundance 2017: Mudbound

20 January 2017 7:40 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

There’s usually a film every year that premieres at Sundance and goes on to do very well at the Oscars, almost a year later. Think Brooklyn (2015), Whiplash (2014), Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) and Precious (2009). This year it could be Captain Fantastic, but most definitely will be Manchester by the Sea. And next year it could be Dee Rees's Mudbound...

Which films will score the most Academy Award nominations next week?

20 January 2017 6:14 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

We’re only a few days away from the Oscar nominations being announced! On Monday you’ll see my final predictions, but before that, some speculation is in order. Namely, which film will end up doing the best, nomination wise, with the Academy? Well, there’s no secret there, as it’s going to be La La Land. It’ll be more interesting to see the margin it leads by, if it can make history with its total, and if anything else even comes close to double digits. That’ll be where the curiosity resides on Tuesday morning. I’m still toying with predictions, so look for those early next week, but right now, let us dive in to which films will lead the field when nominations are announced… Here now are the six most likely films to top the nomination totals next week: La La Land – It’s a »
