International Cinema Group Urges Festivals to Ban Non-Theatrically Released Films From Competition

  • Variety
With the Berlin Film Festival about to wrap and Cannes fast approaching, the International Union of Cinemas (Unic) is urging programmers at leading festivals to select for competition only films that will receive a full theatrical release.

Unic, which represents exhibitors and cinema associations in 37 countries, mostly in Europe, said in a statement Friday that it expects leading film festivals to “ensure that all selected films observe established industry norms – including a full and genuine theatrical release.” The organization added: “We can’t imagine that festivals propose programs just for a small number of subscribers of specific streaming platforms, privatizing both the audience and the films themselves.”

Unic did not name particular platforms such as Netflix or Amazon. But the organization’s statement came amid the Berlin Film Festival, which sparked anger among German exhibitors over the inclusion of a Netflix film, “Elisa y Marcela,” in competition. It marks the

‘Triple Frontier’ Trailer: Oscar Isaac, Affleck, Hedlund, and Hunnam in Netflix Action Thriller

Netflix is going all in on masculine star power for its upcoming release “Triple Frontier.” The drug cartel thriller is the latest directorial effort for J.C. Chandor, who has impressed critics with such dramas as “Margin Call,” “All Is Lost,” and “A Most Violent Year.” Chandor reunites with his “Violent” leading man Oscar Isaac for “Triple Frontier,” which also stars Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal.

The official “Triple Frontier” synopsis reads: “A group of former Special Forces operatives reunite to plan a heist in a sparsely populated multi-border zone of South America. For the first time in their prestigious careers these unsung heroes undertake this dangerous mission for self instead of country. But when events take an unexpected turn and threaten to spiral out of control, their skills, their loyalties, and their morals are pushed to a breaking point in an epic battle for survival.”

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio’s ‘The Devil in the White City’ is Going to TV

Going on seven decades in the film business, Martin Scorsese is showing no signs of slowing down. As he toils away in the editing room on The Irishman, one of his other longest-gestating projects will see the light, but in a different form. It was announced at the Hulu TCA upfront that he and collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio’s adaptation of the sprawling novel Devil in the White City will no longer take the film form, but will be a series on the streaming platform, according to Variety.

Based on Erik Larson’s book The Devil In The White City: Murder, Magic And Madness At The Fair That Changed America, the dark and twisted events involve the chronicling Dr. Hh Holmes, a man who “preyed on anywhere from 27 to 200 people at a time when the city of Chicago was enthralled with hosting the World’s Fair of 1893.” Through the building of The World’s Fair Hotel,

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio set The Devil in the White City as TV series at Hulu

After spending a number of years attached to a feature film adaptation, Deadline is reporting that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio are set to adapt Erik Larson’s book The Devil in the White City as a limited TV series at streaming service Hulu.

The Devil in the White City tells the interconnecting stories of two men whose fates were forever linked by The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. Daniel H. Burnham is a brilliant architect looking to make his mark on the world, while Henry H. Holmes is a serial killer who operated in ‘The Murder Castle’, a building he designed specifically for the torture and murder of young women.

DiCaprio first acquired the rights to the book back in 2010, and intended on playing the role of H.H. Holmes. He will executive produce the series with Scorsese, in addition to Rick Yorn, Emma Koskoff, Jennifer Davisson and Stacey Sher.

Martin Scorsese's The Irishman won't be Goodfellas, but it will be very expensive

  • The AV Club
It’s always a big deal when Martin Scorsese makes a movie that involves mobsters in some way, like when Tim Burton makes a movie with Johnny Depp doing something weird or when George Lucas makes a movie with robots, and Scorsese’s Netflix movie The Irishman seems like it’s going to be a particularly big deal (if only…

Is Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Netflix film, “The Irishman” going to follow in the tradition of “Casino,” or “Boardwalk Empire”?

The Irishman Is Not a Rehash of Goodfellas Insists Scorsese's Longtime Editor

The Irishman Is Not a Rehash of Goodfellas Insists Scorsese's Longtime Editor
Martin Scorsese is not looking to remake Goodfellas with The Irishman. The director's long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker revealed the news, while heaping praise on the movie, which is reportedly set to premiere on Netflix this October with a limited theater release. A fall release date will put the project, which reunited Scorsese with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, in place for award consideration. And, from the sound of things, it could end up winning some pretty big awards when all is said and done.

In a new interview, Thelma Schoonmaker revealed some details about Martin Scorsese's The Irishman. Fans of the director more than likely aren't expecting him to retread old ideas, but the addition of Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro have given the project a Goodfellas vibe. However, that definitely won't be the case when the movie premieres. Schoonmaker explains.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ Is ‘Not Goodfellas,’ Says Thelma Schoonmaker
If you don’t know what to expect of “The Irishman,” Martin Scorsese’s very expensive Netflix movie starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, Thelma Schoonmaker is here to guide you: “‘The Irishman’ is not ‘Goodfellas,'” she told Yahoo Movies.

“And that’s what they think it’s going to be. It’s not. It is not ‘Goodfellas.’ It’s completely different. It’s wonderful. They’re going to love it. But please don’t think it’s gonna be ‘Goodfellas,’ because it isn’t,” said Schoonmaker.

The three-time Oscar winner, who’s cut every one of Scorsese’s films since “Raging Bull” and first began working with him in 1967, is continuing her collaboration with the filmmaker on his adaptation of Charles Brandt’s “I Heard You Paint Houses.”

For the last two years running, Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” has been at the top or near the top of our annual 100 Most Anticipated Film list we compile at the end of each year looking forward to what’s next. 2018 came and went and of course, the longer the year went on, the more and more it seemed like Scorsese’s gangster movie for Netflix wouldn’t arrive this year.

See Joe Pesci Make Rare Screen Appearance in Google’s ‘Home Alone’ Ad

See Joe Pesci Make Rare Screen Appearance in Google’s ‘Home Alone’ Ad
Joe Pesci makes a rare on-screen appearance in a new and meta Google commercial that sees the actor watching the company’s viral Home Alone ad.

In December, Google dropped the Macaulay Culkin-starring ad that updated Home Alone with a grown-up and tech-savvy Kevin McCallister. The commercial has been viewed on YouTube 39 million times… including by Pesci, who co-starred as the thief Harry Lime in the Christmas classic.

In the Super Bowl-bound ad, dubbed “Joe Pesci watches Home Alone Again,” the actor simply watches and comments on the previous ad,

Joe Pesci Returns in New Home Alone Google Commercial

Joe Pesci Returns in New Home Alone Google Commercial
Joe Pesci has returned to the screen for the first time in years. While it's not as exciting as hearing that the Oscar-winner is starring in a new movie, he is revisiting, in a way, one of his most famous roles as Harry, one half of the Wet Bandits, from Home Alone. This comes as part of a new ad campaign Google has launched for their Google Home products, and this one is pretty meta.

This follows in the footsteps of the Macaulay Culkin ad that saw the actor revisiting his role as Kevin, recreating some of the most iconic scenes from Home Alone as an adult. In this case, Joe Pesci isn't actually playing Harry. He's playing himself, hosting a party with a bunch of friends who are watching Culkin's ad on TV. Pesci is commenting on the ad as they watch and gets everyone to celebrate when his

Joe Pesci Revisits Home Alone in a New Google Assistant Ad as He Watches Home Alone Again

Google managed to pull Joe Pesci out of retirement to be in a new Google Assistant ad where he resists Home Alone by watching Macaulay Culkin’s Home Alone Again commercial.

I’ve gotta say, after watching this commercial I realized how much I missed seeing Joe Pesci in the movies! He was so great and he’s looking pretty good for his age! At least we’ll get to see him one more time in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, which comes out later this year.

Now, watch Pesci take a trip down Home Alone memory lane as he watches Culkin reprise his role as an older Kevin McCallister.

Okay Google: What two things can get Joe Pesci out of retirement and back onto the screen? Only Martin Scorsese and Google Assistant, apparently.

But while he’ll appear later this year in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, Pesci maintains a relatively low profile — […]

Joe Pesci Returns to Screen in ‘Home Alone’ Advertisement for Google Assistant (Video)

  • The Wrap
Hey Google, what has Joe Pesci been up to lately?

The “Home Alone” and “Goodfellas” actor has largely remained out of the public eye, and his first movie in nine years will be Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” due out later this year. But in a rare, surprise appearance, Pesci showed up in a Google commercial in which he watches and admires yet another Google commercial.

Several weeks back, Google released an ad featuring an all-grown-up Macaulay Culkin using the Google Assistant to get him through his day while stuck Home Alone. It was cute, though not quite a reunion, because although you heard a young Pesci’s voice at the end, the actor was nowhere to be seen.

Looking Back On Year In Advance Predictions As Awards Season Slows Down

Here’s an opportunity to embarrass myself. Back in March, I posted year in advance predictions for this Oscar season. As is always the case, these picks are never even close to accurate. One year, I managed to get about half of the ultimate Best Picture field, and that was pretty incredible. Last time around, I got three of the Picture nominees correct. This year…well, you’ll see. Interestingly, I mostly avoided being too far off in a number of categories. So, while it’s not a good showing, it certainly could have been worse. Proof if nothing else that I’m at least halfway decent at my job, right? What you’ll see below is just how off point I was. To be fair, I did hit on a few solid predictions, and didn’t really wipe out in many categories. I just usually do better. Chalk it
