Cannes 2018: ‘Buy Me a Gun’ Review: Dir. Julio Hernandez Cordon (2018)

Buy Me A Gun review: Known as Cómprame un revolver in its homeland, Julio Hernandez Cordon’s latest hits Director’s Fortnight at Cannes 2018.

Buy Me A Gun review by Andrew Gaudion.

Buy Me A Gun review

Shown as part of the Directors Fortnight at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Buy Me a Gun has been compared to The Florida Project in terms of its world approach. That comparison is easy to track, seeing as most of the film is told through the eyes of a young girl, but there is something a tad more fantastical at play here. In his sixth film, Julio Hernandez Cordon has constructed a down and dirty dystopian drama set in a world that imagines a not too distant future in which Mexico has been completely taken over by the Cartel. Women are disappearing and young girl Huck has to disguise herself as a

Box office tracking suggests Ocean’s 8 will steal a big opening weekend

Opening weekend numbers have always been important to the success of a summer blockbuster, but now we live in an age where the pre-release tracking can also have a huge impact on the way a film is received, so if the buzz on Ocean’s 8 is to be believed, then Warner Bros./Village Roadshow will be pretty pleased with the figures that Deadline is reporting.

Opening on June 8th in the Us, industry number crunchers have it projected as high as $45m for the weekend. It’s a number comparable with the last gender switch franchise reboot, Ghostbusters, which opened with $46 million ($128.3 million domestic total) in 2016. While that film was deemed a commercial flop, largely thanks to the $140 million budget, Ocean’s 8 is estimated to have cost in the region of $70 million, so this will be a big score for the studio.

‘The Good Doctor’ Composer Dan Romer Mines Depths Of Emotion Through Music – Production Value Video Series

Anyone who has heard the scores of award-winning composer Dan Romer knows the emotion that flows through his music.

Most recently recruited for David Shore’s ABC drama The Good Doctor and Drake Doremus’ futuristic romantic drama Zoe, Romer has left…

As ‘First Match’ Hits Netflix, Watch Six More Great Shorts That Became Famous Features

As ‘First Match’ Hits Netflix, Watch Six More Great Shorts That Became Famous Features
Following its Audience Award–winning debut at this year’s SXSW Festival, the coming of age sports drama “First Match” is now available to stream on Netflix. Directed by Olivia Newman, and starring Elvire Emanuelle as a teenage girl in foster care who joins an all-boys wrestling team to connect with her father, First Match is another in a long and impressive list of breakout independent features that were initially developed as short films.

Newman first tackled this story while a film student at Columbia in 2010 (you can watch that version here) before eventually expanding it into her acclaimed directorial debut, which you can watch here on Netflix. Newman translated the naturalistic and intimate feel of the short with help from Dp Ashley Connor’s lyrically expressive handheld camerawork and backed by a largely female crew. In fact, 60% of the crew was female, and 75% of the department heads were female.

Best Movies by American Directors 35 or Under, from ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Training Day’

Best Movies by American Directors 35 or Under, from ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Training Day’
Among the many impressive numbers associated with “Black Panther” is the director’s age. At just 31, Ryan Coogler has directed an historic, record-breaking blockbuster whose achievements will be studied for years by scholars and pop culture dabblers alike. He follows in the footsteps of such wunderkinds as Steven Spielberg and Orson Welles, who were respectively 28 (“Jaws”) and 25 (“Citizen Kane”) when they first helmed movies that were to become iconic cinema classics.

Coogler’s not the only young filmmaker to leave a mark at an early age in recent years. Thus, we present to you our ranking of the 25 best movies from 2000 to the present from filmmakers 35 and under. (Sorry, Jason Reitman and Xavier Dolan: you’re Canadian.) To keep the list manageable, we stuck to homegrown Americans only, and picked our favorite film from each early oeuvre. (If you disagree, feel free to share alternatives in the comments.

Cannes 2018 Wish List: 37 Movies We Hope Make the Cut, From Barry Jenkins to Claire Denis
The Cannes Film Festival is always a major turning point for the year in cinema. While Sundance kicks off the calendar with an overview of new American movies, Cannes casts a much wider net, digging through an international set of possibilities that includes its usual stable of reliable auteurs in addition to some rising stars. Unlike most high-profile festivals, the Cannes selection is fairly small, with most attention being paid to the roughly 20 features that crack the Official Competition. Artistic director Thierry Fremaux and his mysterious programming team tend to wait until the last second before securing titles, which means it’s a bit of a crapshoot to pontificate about which movies will actually score a spot at the festival.

Until April 12, the full program is anybody’s guess, but a few possibilities can be eliminated from the outset. Richard Linklater’s Amazon-produced Cate Blanchett vehicle “Where’d You
