The Founder – Review

19 January 2017 10:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a most unusual entry in a genre that’s now becoming a cinema staple: the origin story. Now that term may be most associated with comic books, and many of the superhero blockbusters are just that, the story of how he, she, or they came to get their powers, whip up a costume, and so on (the recent Doctor Strange is an excellent example). Ah, but this is a true tale, almost an autobiography. There have been many “bio-origins”, from Young Mr. Lincoln to Southside With You (hmm.. both about future presidents). Yes, there’s the individual’s journey, but this flick is also about a product. The Social Network concerned Mark Zuckerberg and the creation of that website, and Steve Jobs was as much about the man as it was about the personal computer. This new movie focuses on Ray Kroc and chronicles the evolution of the fast food restaurant industry, »

Sundance at the Box Office: Here’s Why ‘Birth of A Nation’ Isn’t Enough To Scare Buyers In 2017

18 January 2017 3:45 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance 2016 will always be remembered for the record-breaking $17.5 million sale of Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” to Fox Searchlight, on the heels of the #oscarsowhite backlash — and for the massive marketing fallout that followed in light of Parker’s rape-trial acquittal. With a domestic gross under $16 million, it led to one of the bigger failures among Sundance sales relative to expense.

Netflix outbid Searchlight for “The Birth of a Nation,” but the producers favored the theatrical route (including that company’s proven awards expertise and commercial success) and accepted less money. One wonders if it had been a high-profile Netflix film if the post-Sundance controversy about Nate Parker’s college days would have had the same impact or effect. It will be curious to see if any producer this year is as quick to turn down a high offer from Netflix or similar non-theatrical buyer.

Those memories could temper bidding wars, »

Will Sundance See a Trump Effect?

17 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A year ago at Sundance, #OscarsSoWhite and related outrage over a lack of diversity in Hollywood fueled an industrywide push of films with people of color, igniting a record $17.5 million bidding war for “The Birth of a Nation” and, later on, helping propel “Moonlight” and other films toward year-end Oscar campaigns.

This year, widespread anger over the presidential election and a celeb-packed Park City offshoot of the Women’s March on Washington raise the question: Will other issues that newly disenfranchised audiences care about boost interest in any of the slew of politically charged films at Sundance, helping to sow the seeds for another “Fahrenheit 9/11”?

There’s certainly money to be made from political films that cater to audiences who feel outraged, as shown by right-wing docs that have galvanized audiences angered by President Obama. 2016’s top-grossing doc by a wide margin was Dinesh D’Souza’s “Hillary’s America, »

Obama and What It Feels Like to Be 'The Only'

17 January 2017 12:21 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Devon Terrell as Barry Obama: The future U.S. president as a Columbia University student in the early 1980s. Barry the Optimist (See previous post: “'Barry' Obama & Me: Finding Common Ground with the Future U.S. President.”) Like Obama, I'm inclined to attempt to bring you around on the subject, to find common ground, because like both Barry and Barack, I too am an optimist. But then again, unlike Barry or Barack, I'm pretty sure it ultimately won't work. In truth, my optimism has waned over the years. For Barry, that optimism, backed up by a fearlessness regarding his own physical safety (partially driven by nicotine, as Barry smoked a lot), is what the film Barry is all about. My waning optimism notwithstanding, this too is something we have in common. (Although I never smoked. Well, not cigarettes.) According to Barry, it was in the fall of 1981 that optimism was »

Ariana Grande and John Legend Team for Beauty and the Beast Theme Song

13 January 2017 8:21 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time Grammy, Oscar-winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/ musician John Legend are set to perform the Oscar and Grammy-winning duet "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track for Disney's upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film adaptation Beauty and the Beast. The song will also be featured in the film.

The enchanting ballad, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson featuring eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken's beautiful melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman's unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award, among other accolades, upon its release in 1991.

The new rendition of the classic song is produced by Grammy-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney's president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, »

DVD Obscura: The New Indie and International Movies You Need to Watch

12 January 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New Indie High on my list of “Great 2016 Movies You May Well Have Missed” is the sparkling Southside with You (Lionsgate/Miramax), a film that’s right up there in my book with Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy when it comes to great walking-and-talking romances. While the film’s hook – Barack Obama and Michelle Robertson go on a first date – is no doubt what helped it get made, this is by no means a movie that relies solely upon its gimmick. Ultimately, it’s the story of two sexy, intelligent people getting to know one another, dancing around each other a bit, and eventually realizing that they’re made for each other. Tika Sumpter and Parker Sawyers give effervescent performances as Michelle and Barack, touching...
