New Orleans Film Festival to Showcase ‘Mudbound’ and ‘The Florida Project’

11 October 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Celebrating its 28th edition, the annual New Orleans Film Festival this year features a lineup of more than 230 films and a theme that stresses diversity, says artistic director Clint Bowie.

“We have a new mission statement with an emphasis on amplifying diverse voices and story- tellers from all different backgrounds,” Bowie says. “Out of that lineup, more than 53% are from female directors and 45% from directors of color, so it’s probably the most diverse program we’ve ever created.”

The festival will take place in The Big Easy on Oct. 11-19.

After receiving a record number of nearly 5,000 entries from 109 different countries — an increase of more than 20% over last year — the festival is welcoming over 400 filmmakers. Programmers have curated a slate with Louisiana-made films representing 29% of the lineup.

Anchoring the diverse program is the centerpiece movie, the Louisiana-shot, period epic “Mudbound,” pictured above, which premiered at Sundance and was acquired by Netflix.

Jason Clarke’s ‘Chappaquiddick’ Gets November Release Date

5 October 2017 4:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jason Clarke’s “Chappaquiddick” has been set for an awards-season domestic release on Nov. 22 by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures.

The movie, which Entertainment Studios acquired in advance of its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, recounts the events surrounding a 1969 car accident that killed Mary Jo Kopechne, a young campaign worker for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy.

Based on a True Story: Why So Many Biopics Create Oscar Buzz But Become Box-Office Flops

5 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall is the season of Real-People movies — the biopics that often fuel Oscar hopes. Recent weeks brought “The Battle of the Sexes,” “Stronger,” and “Victoria & Abdul” and there’s more than a dozen to come, including “Marshall,” “The Post,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Current War.” There’s good reason to believe that a biopic might produce awards. In the last five years, 28 of the 100 Oscar acting nominees played real-life characters, as did four of the 20 winners. But when it comes to the box office, the odds aren’t as kind.

Since 2012, there have been about 100 biopics including hits like “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” and “Julie and Julia.” But while recent years featured real-life characters and stories in some of the biggest non-franchise hits, the format may have reached a saturation point.

An Open Letter to Byron Allen, Indie Film’s Newest Savior: Please Slow Down, Before You Hurt Yourself

3 October 2017 12:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The surprise success of shark movie “47 Meters Down” may be the best thing that ever happened to Byron Allen — or, the worst. His Entertainment Studios bought the title moments before Dimension Films shipped the inventory for its DVD premiere, and — with the help of some $30 million in P&A — it made $43 million at the box office this summer.

Now, Allen has spent the last month on a spending spree. Most recently, it’s “Hostiles,” Scott Cooper’s $50 million-budgeted Western starring Christian Bale that premiered at Toronto. The purchase price is unknown, but he’s reportedly committed to an Oscar-qualifying December release and about $15 million in P&A. That’s in addition to “Chappaquiddick,” another Toronto-Oscar title ($4 million acquisition, $16 million P&A) and Keanu Reeves’ sci-fi thriller “Replicas,” which cost $4 million for North America and is not an Oscar title, but comes with the promise of a wide release.

Oscar Opportunity: Why There Are So Many Last-Minute Entries in the 2018 Awards Race

27 September 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Way back in 2008, Fox Searchlight jumped into Oscar action with Toronto pickup “The Wrestler;” it yielded two 2009 Oscar acting nominations for Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei. Similarly, having lost “Birth of a Nation” as a viable candidate, Searchlight picked up “Jackie” at Tiff 2016 and landed three nominations including Natalie Portman for Best Actress. Last-minute Oscar-hopeful buys are relatively rare; awards campaigns aren’t meant to be rush jobs. However, it sometimes pays to be opportunistic and the 2018 race looks like one of those years.

Eager to prove itself, rising indie Neon plunked down $5 million for North American rights to “I, Tonya” (December 8), even though Margot Robbie and Allison Janney will go up against intense competition in the two Actress categories.
