San Sebastián: Gullane Boards Marco Bellocchio’s Mafia Thriller ‘The Traitor’ (Exclusive)

28 September 2017 12:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — Brazil’s Gullane has joined Italy’s Ibc Movie, Kavac Film and Rai Cinema, Germany’s The Match Factory Production and France’s Ad Vitam to produce Marco Bellocchio’s “The Traitor.”

Michael Weber’s The Match Factory will also handle international sales rights. Set to shoot in Italy, Brazil, the U.S. and Germany, “The Traitor” is a biopic of Tommaso Buscetta, the first high-ranking Mafia boss to turn informant on the Cosa Rostra in what Bellocchio regards as a an act of heroic betrayal.

Buscetta’s testimony led to the first big trial against organized crime and the conviction of hundreds of Mafia members.

Buschetta, who had a Brazilian wife, was living in Brazil when two of his sons and brothers were killed by the Corleonesi mob, which encourages him, when extradited to Italy, to collaborate with Italian prosecutors, becoming Cosa Nostra’s first high-ranking informer.

Brazil Choses ‘Bingo – The King of the Mornings’ as its Foreign-Language Academy Award Submission

19 September 2017 8:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brazil has selected “Bingo – The King of the Mornings,” one of its most awaited debuts of 2017, as its entry for next year’s foreign-language Academy Award.

Produced by Brazilian production powerhouse Gullane, “Bingo – the King of the Mornings'” candidature also marks a victory for Warner Bros. whose Brazilian office co-produced the title, which will be distributed in Latin america by Warner Latin America.

The submission, voted on by a commission of over 200 film specialists, was announced by the Brazilian Film Academy. It appears to have avoided the polemics of last year’s choice when the publicly declared animosity of one member of the candidature jury towards Cannes competition title “Aquarius” caused three filmmakers to refuse to submit their film for consideration.

Long-anticipated, “Bingo – The King of the Mornings” was chosen from among 22 contenders. It marks the first feature as a director of Daniel Rezende, an award-winning editor on Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” José Padilha »

Oh, for the love of God, why am I still reading about this? Seems like every godd**n week, I see a new article from somebody trying to figure out the ‘Rotten Tomatoes‘ phenomenon or whatever new phenomenon or faux-outrage or whatever bullsh*t about it there is… Here’s one from Vox.com a few days ago. Here’s one from Wired.com a couple months ago. Here’s one from TVOvermind.com. Here’s one from TheRinger.com. Here’s one from the god**nn New York F**king Times! Here’s an episode of “What the Flick” doing a whole Youtube segment on the New York Times article! And here’s another one from Variety, yes that Variety, about how Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t influence box office. (Sigh) Some of those are from last week; here’s an infamous one that I wrote last year!!!!!!!

The Craziest Hollywood Movies of the 21st Century — IndieWire Critics Survey

18 September 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

In honor of Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!,” which just became one of the only movies to ever earn an “F” Cinemascore rating, what is the craziest movie that a major Hollywood studio has released this century?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

Talk about a self-answering question. Unless you can point to another movie that brews such an aggressive whirlwind of psychosexual anxiety, starring the biggest star in the world (who is also romantically involved with the director), then we’re talking about “mother!” I’m sure you’ve got “The Wolf of Wall Street” at the ready as an alternative, but how crazy is that film, given »

Is ‘mother!’ a Head Trip? No, it’s an Allegory! Let the Term Papers Begin!

16 September 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A few weeks ago, when Darren Aronofsky’s aggressively out-there Wtf head-trip horror movie “mother!” was oozing onto the radar, it seemed likely to be one of those films that provokes a fiercely divided response. Whatever scandals the movie had in store for us, one contingent, you could imagine, would embrace the outrage; the other would recoil from it. (That’s the way these things tend to go.) An early piece in The Guardian, out of London, suggested that “mother!” might be the most controversial film to emerge from a major studio since “A Clockwork Orange,” and that’s the kind of advertising you can’t buy. A hot potato like “mother!” doesn’t come along every day, or even every year, so it’s fun to be able to say: Let the shock — and fiery debates — begin!

But now that “mother!” has arrived in theaters, it’s proving to be a divisive film, though »

Tales of Two Halves: Christian Petzold's "The State I Am In" and Christoph Hochhäusler's "The City Below"

10 Actors Who Were Almost Cast in Marvel's Ant-Man

7 September 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Cinephiles and Marvel movie fans were abuzz when writer/director Edgar Wright teased plot details, production photos, and concept footage from Ant-Man, which promised to be an action comedy take on Marvel's travel-sized superhero. Wright ultimately left the project, though Paul Rudd stayed on as Scott Lang for director Peyton Reed, who delivered the 2015 film that earned over $519 million worldwide. But before Rudd entered the scene, Ant-Man himself almost looked quite a bit different.

There were plenty of actors considered for the film's lead and the no-less important parts of Og Ant-Man Hank Pym, the Wasp and/or Hope van Dyne. Today, we look at 10 actors who were almost cast in Marvel's Ant-Man at one point or another. And there are some pretty wild and unique choices to be discovered. As well as some that are simply no brainers. Would any of them have been better than Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly? »

Darren Aronofsky’s Outrageous ‘Mother!’ Throws Awards Voters a Curveball

6 September 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice — Every good film festival needs a firestarter: a big, bold auteur film intended to split and disquiet audiences, whereupon the critical reaction winds up consuming as many analytical column inches as the movie itself. Yesterday, after a quiet but consistently respectable start — with the likes of “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards in Ebbing, Missouri” premiering to warm consensus — Venice finally got its incendiary opinion-divider a week into the festival, as Darren Aronofsky’s aggressive, terrifying, deeply personal fever-dream “Mother!” was sprung on audiences.

For the first time at Venice this year, fierce boos reverberated around the Sala Darsena as the closing credits rolled — any European festival crowd’s favored way to express artistic disapproval, to the consternation of more temperate Americans and Brits. But the noise didn’t speak for the entire room: seconds later, Twitter made it clear that Aronofsky’s thorny provocation had as many exhilarated admirers as it did incensed detractors »

As ‘Patti Cake$’ Stumbles, Fox Searchlight Faces a Battle To Remain on Top

28 August 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Standing before the packed house at Manhattan’s Metrograph Theater, “Patti Cake$” director Geremy Jasper introduced his film. He was excited, in the way that first-time directors often are at their premieres, thanking his producers, his cast, his reps — but the most heartfelt thanks went to distributor Fox Searchlight. Not only did it make his Jersey girl-rapper tale one of the biggest buys of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, but it also represented a genuine dream come true. When the “Patti Cake$” team imagined their ideal distributor, he said, they agreed that nothing could be better than becoming a Fox Searchlight movie.

Headstones in the graveyard of studio specialty divisions include Warner Independent, Picturehouse, Fine Line Features, Paramount Classics, Paramount Vantage, and beyond. However, Fox Searchlight has persevered, and succeeded, for more than 20 years: Savvy, innovative, and astute, it’s known for its skill in finding acquisitions that reached audiences beyond the arthouse. »

Jessica Chastain Slams CBS Over Lack Of Female Representation

3 August 2017 6:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Not only is Jessica Chastain one of the best actresses of her generation, what with her incredible turns in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Tree of Life,” among many other great performances, but she has also been an outspoken activist when it comes to the discrimination faced by women in Hollywood. One of the more important issues she has fought for has been equal pay in the industry, for which she had this to say just last year: “I think people know if they’re going to hire me I’m not going to just be grateful.

Exclusive: Trey Edward Shults on It Comes at Night and interning for Terrence Malick

5 July 2017 5:56 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

This week HeyUGuys caught up with talented director Trey Edward Shults. Having already shown his filmmaking prowess in his acclaimed debut film Krisha, his sophomore feature It Comes at Night confirms that he will be a cinematic force to be reckoned with for decades to come. In a wide-ranging interview Shults talks interning for Terence Malick, how he conceptualised the dream sequences in his latest production, and much, much more.

You’ve managed to do more world building in It Comes at Night, from within the confines of this country home setting, than most movies manage to do when they are trying to establish a similar premise on a global scale. I think it’s the psyche of those involved, as well as the dynamics and emotion of the situation that makes moments in movies like this work. Do you think sometimes by showing less and focusing »

Song to Song: should Terrence Malick take a break?

3 July 2017 1:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Films such as Badlands and The Thin Red Line made him a legend. Now his films barely scrape a release. What went wrong for the reclusive auteur?

Related: Is Terrence Malick ahead of his time or out of date?

A new movie by Terrence Malick used to be a seismic event; now it’s more of a “meh”. Malick’s return after a 20-year absence with 1998’s The Thin Red Line, was regarded as the second coming of a mystical movie messiah, so revered had the reclusive Texan become in the decades since Badlands and Days of Heaven. But for an outsider auteur, Malick has sure been churning them out lately. Since 2011’s acclaimed The Tree of Life, he has made three features and two versions of a documentary – practically a film a year.

"Twin Peaks," Episode 8 Recap: Did You Like That Song?

26 June 2017 4:51 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series."Did you like that song?" the boy (Xolo Mariduena) asks the girl (Tikaeni Faircrest). His words are hesitant and tentative—tinged with naiveté, therefore open and earnest. "Yes," the girl replies, playing along with the courtship ritual. "I did like that song." Yet there's a sense in the slight pause between his question and her answer that she could say anything. That awkward dead space is filled with possibilities—positive, negative and in-between. And what excitement there is in that. This exchange comes toward the end of Part 8 of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, though the quiet beauty of the moment is offset by the many horrors (and wonders) that precede it…and that, will indeed, follow it. It's easy »

‘Twin Peaks’ Part 8 Was the Closest We’ll Come to Seeing David Lynch’s ‘Tree of Life’

26 June 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Some people go nuts for ‘Tree of Life,’” David Lynch said during a Los Angeles Times interview five years ago. “I love Terry Malick. But ‘Tree of Life’ wasn’t my cup of tea.” After being asked a follow-up question about why he couldn’t get into the film, Lynch simply repeated himself: “It wasn’t my cup of tea.”

If you’ve ever wondered what the Lynchian equivalent of “The Tree of Life” would look like, last night’s entrancing episode of “Twin Peaks” offers a clue. It might have been the most visually stunning 60 minutes of television ever produced — and certainly the revival’s best episode since last month’s two-part premiere — and most who tuned in have no earthly idea what actually happened.
