Disney Left With a Slate of Film Flops After Fox Deal

  • Variety
Is Disney having buyer’s remorse? The studio would be forgiven if it were having some regrets after absorbing 20th Century Fox, the company that once generated big box office with the likes of “Avatar,” “Life of Pi,” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

After “Dark Phoenix” bombed earlier this summer, Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista’s action comedy “Stuber” did little to instill more confidence in the film slate that Fox handed Disney as part of its $71.3 billion merger. So far, the Magic Kingdom has struggled when it comes to distributing movies that don’t fall under the studio’s squeaky clean umbrella.

“They’ve already taken two hits on two films out of the gate,” said Jeff Bock, a media analyst at Exhibitor Relations. “They’re like horses at the Santa Anita. They’re just dying on them.”

To be fair, the faith-based drama “Breakthrough” did a respectable $50.4 million globally on a $14 million budget,

From Delhi to Mumbai: 8 Indian Locations Offering Varied Options for International Shoots
It’s been more than four decades since Steven Spielberg landed in India to shoot sequences for Close Encounters of the Third Kind — he reportedly based the iconic design of the mother ship on an oil refinery he would see every day on his way to the set. But in the ensuing years, the country has struggled to establish itself as an international shooting destination. While there has been an uptick recently, with the likes of Life of Pi, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Hotel Mumbai shooting in the country, by and large India is not in the same league ...

Anita Gou Feels Like “A Unicorn” As A Young, Female, Asian Producer & Pursues “Projects That Can Travel Beyond Borders” — Deadline Disruptors

  • Deadline
Anita Gou found out she had two films going to Sundance this year via WeChat, while she was out on a road trip in Taiwan. It was a fitting way to find out for someone with such strong international connections. One was Lulu Wang’s Mandarin-language comedy The Farewell, which was snapped up by A24 in a splashy $6 million deal, and the other was Shia Labeouf-starrer Honey Boy, which ended up being part of Amazon’s remarkable buying spree. But Gou wasn’t fazed; though she was only 28, it wasn’t her first rodeo—she had already taken two films to the festival: Netflix acquisition To the Bone in 2017 and Sam Levinson’s Assassination Nation in 2018. That meant that all of her first four narrative features would debut in Park City—and that’s quite a start.

“I can’t say it was intentional,” Gou laughs. “Though I guess

Movie Review – Arctic (2018)

Arctic, 2018.

Directed by Joe Penna.

Starring Mads Mikkelsen, María Thelma and Tintrinai Thikhasuk.

Synopsis:

A man stranded in the Arctic after a helicopter crash must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown.

Extreme survival stories are nothing new when it comes to movies; the industry loves high stakes and suspense. An isolated protagonist tends to make things even juicier (see previous) – or more uncomfortable, depending on your point of view – which is exactly how we find Overgård (Mads Mikkelsen) in Arctic. No information is given about him, other than what can be deduced from his surroundings and behaviour. Stranded in the Arctic Circle, he has been living in the wreck of a plane and, judging by the detail in his daily routine, he has been here for quite some time.

This way of life is

Oscars 2020: Best Picture Predictions

In order for a movie to wind up in the Best Picture race, everything has to go right. So it’s way too early to jump into real predicting. For now, let’s assess the likely players. And we will update as we see where the chips fall, from Cannes to the all-important gatekeepers, the fall film festivals.

As always, this year’s Oscar derby started off at January’s Sundance Film Festival. Their most likely awards contender is Amazon’s $14-million buy, writer-turned-director Scott Z. Burns’ post-9/11 fact-based political thriller “The Report,” a taut drama slated for fall release that imparts reams of info about CIA interrogation techniques, along the lines of post-Watergate journalism drama “All the President’s Men,” which won four Oscars. “The Report” makes heroes out of dogged investigator Dan Jones (Adam Driver) and his boss, California Senator Dianne Feinstein (four-time Oscar-nominee Annette Bening).

Oscars 2020: Best Director Predictions
It’s still early days, as we head into Cannes, which mainly delivers contenders for the newly dubbed Best International Feature Film. That said, the Academy’s director’s branch, packed with overseas voters, tends to be the most receptive to non-American auteurs. Never underestimate Quentin Tarantino, who’s back after a decade in Cannes Competition with “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.

As always, the fall film festival circuit will yield the most Oscar fodder. This year, finally, offers more than a few strong women contenders for directing nods, including returning “Lady Bird” nominee Greta Gerwig. Netflix has a strong set of offerings, including Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” one of several 2019 VFX-packed movies featuring the de-aging of its principals. The other that could factor in the directing race is Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man,” starring Will Smith.
