61st BFI London Film Festival Review – Ingrid Goes West (2017)

7 October 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ingrid Goes West, 2017.

Directed by Matt Spicer.

Starring Aubrey Plaza, Elizabeth Olsen, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, Pom Klementieff, and Billy Magnussen.

Synopsis:

A mentally unstable loner takes a hefty inheritance and moves west to Venice Beach, California, in search of friends, fame, and an Instagram starlet she’s just a little too obsessed with.

Despite finding fame during a stint on a well-loved sitcom, and tearing up safe raunchy comedy after safe raunchy comedy on the Hollywood circuit ever since, Aubrey Plaza has become a bit of a maverick in the last year. On top of the overloaded period send-up The Little Hours that also took the leap at this year’s Sundance, her starring turn (and first producer credit) in Ingrid Goes West is very clearly the start of something a lot more substantial from the wild-eyed actress.

Plaza’s known for being the crazy girl; the »

Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Lewis Black to Star in Netflix’s ‘Last Laugh’

25 September 2017 4:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chevy Chase, Richard Dreyfuss, Lewis Black, Andie MacDowell, Kate Micucci, and Chris Parnell have boarded the Netflix original comedy “The Last Laugh.”

Written and directed by Greg Pritikin, the Netflix original project is produced by Rob Paris of Paris Film Inc. Shooting began Monday in New Orleans.

The story centers on a talent manager and widower reuniting with a former client, who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family. Once on tour at classic stand-up venues across the U.S., the comedian gets a last taste of the life he could have had with a rollercoaster ride of two men rekindling friendships, careers, and ideas of the past. Chase will play the manager and Dreyfuss will portray the comedian.

New to Streaming: ‘A Ghost Story,’ ‘Carol,’ ‘The Death of Louis Xiv,’ and More

22 September 2017 5:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Carol (Todd Haynes)

From the first note of Carter Burwell‘s magnificent score and opening shot of Edward Lachman’s ravishing cinematography — introducing a Brief Encounter-esque opening bookend — Todd Haynes transports one to an intoxicating world of first love and its requisite heartbreak. Carol excels at being many things: a romantic drama; a coming-of-age story; an exploration of family dynamics and social constructs of the time; an acting »

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago Movie

Dave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieDave Franco talks becoming a toy ninja in The Lego Ninjago MovieBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine9/20/2017 10:00:00 Am

Dave Franco sits on a metal chair in a stripped-down Beverly Hills hotel room looking as happy as he can be. All that stuff you read about the actor’s infectious smile being the most winning in the business? Not fake news.

You won’t actually get to see that gregarious grin in Franco’s latest movie, however. In The Lego Ninjago Movie he merely provides the voice of animated brick boy Lloyd, a troubled teen who leads a squad of ninjas against the evil Garmadon who wants to destroy their ancient/modern/futuristic island city.

But even though you won’t get a gander at the 32-year-old star of Neighbors, 21 Jump Street and Now You See Me in the animated feature, »

‘Rebel in the Rye’ Leads a Slow Box Office, While ‘Tulip Fever’ Wilts

10 September 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Beyond ongoing releases, this is never a significant weekend; most of the specialized action is in Toronto. Outside the festival circuit, however, three-month-old hit “The Big Sick” remains on top. Young J.D. Salinger biopic “Rebel in the Rye” had the most traction among openers, with decent grosses considering its negative reviews.

Opening

Rebel in the Rye (IFC) Metacritic: 44; Festivals include: Sundance 2017

$44,280 in 4 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $11,070

Ongoing interest in “The Catcher in the Rye” and J.D. Salinger as well as strong theater placement helped this do good initial business in New York and Los Angeles.

What comes next: Similar appeal should be seen as this expands starting Friday in other big cities.

True to the Game (Independent)

$(est.) 500,000 in 431 theaters; PTA: $(est.) 1,160

This adaptation of a 1997 drug world thriller/romance made little impact in its nationwide mid-level release. Grosses did improve Saturday, which gives it some hope to »

‘Do It Like An Hombre’ Trounced ‘Tulip Fever’ at the Box Office, in Half the Theaters

3 September 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Labor Day weekend is the calm before the specialized storm. “Wind River” (Weinstein) went wide quickly, and managed the #3 spot it an weak period for most theaters. The company also released its long-blooming “Tulip Fever,” which flopped as expected with just over $1 million. Meanwhile, Lionsgate/Pantelion’s “Do It Like An Hombre,” a low-budget Mexican comedy, did twice as well in half the theaters.

IFC’s two-city initial release of historical drama “Viceroy’s House” showed some interest, despite pay- per-view access. “Dolores,” an upcoming PBS documentary, had a strong initial New York exclusive gross to stand out in an otherwise slow market.

Why ‘The Big Sick’ Was the Indie Winner at the Summer Box Office

1 September 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Summer box office was dismal, with totals down more than 15 percent from last year. Or was it? In the specialized realm, things are looking up. Last year, limited releases grossed less than $90 million; this year, it will be over $100 million.

That’s good news — but careful analysis still shows a troubled season riddled with issues and failures that should make top distributors take great care when bidding at the festivals this fall.

Some observations of the mixed-bag results:

There’s Only One Real Winner

Amazon’s “The Big Sick” grossed about $40 million. That’s the top performance of the year among independent/platform release titles, and a decent showing for the reported $12 million Sundance acquisition.

The Sundance Gamble: From ‘Patti Cake$’ to ‘Big Sick,’ How the Top 2017 Deals Paid Off

31 August 2017 3:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Of the films that debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival seeking distribution, “Patti Cake$” was one of the most enticing. With an effervescent, fresh face at the center in Aussie Danielle Macdonald, who plays a plus-sized aspiring rapper from New Jersey, the movie captured the enthusiasm of critics, audiences, and that ineffable festival buzz. It sparked a bidding war and emerged victorious with a massive deal — an estimated $9.5 million offer from Fox Searchlight.

Now, entering its third weekend in limited release, “Patti Cake$” risks being labeled a flop. It earned $67,599 in its opening weekend from 14 theaters, and weekend No. 2 brought in $102,258 from 59 locations. The indie release strategy is often a gradual expansion, but the poor start practically guarantees the film will end up in the red.

In “Patti Cake$’s” defense, the indie box office is awfully crowded. In 2016, 636 movies opened in 800 locations or less, accounting for 2.93% of total domestic grosses for the year, according »

As Box Office Goes to Hell, Specialty Market Hangs on with ‘Beach Rats’

27 August 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On a disastrous weekend at the overall box office –with the lowest per capita attendance since the Fdr administration — specialty movies did comparatively better. On a smaller scale.

Still, continuing a recent trend, a slew of Sundance premieres expanded to weak results. “Ingrid Goes West” (Neon) and “Good Time” (A24), both with significant support and strong theater placement, are barely treading water in most locations as they broaden.

Beach Rats” (Neon), another Sundance American indie, leads among new openers with an adequate start in its initial two city dates. But it is below other films that are now struggling to find interest with broader audiences.

Like the mainstream market, the specialized scene has gone from a strong early summer with several notable titles (led by “The Big Sick”) to a wide number of disappointments that have come and gone very quickly. With the fall festival and awards season just around the corner, »

Exclusive Unleashed Clip: I Will Come To You

22 August 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Pets? Men? Who can tell the difference? The success of a silly premise always depends on the ability of the performers to commit to said premise with a serious conviction. In the case of Unleashed, the deadpan humor looks like it's delivered perfectly by Kate Micucci, Justin Chatwin, Sean Astin and Steve Howey. Micucci has shown her range of comic talents in The Little Hours and Don't Think Twice while Chatwin and Howey are familiar (to me, at least) from TV's Shameless, and Sean Astin, is, well Sean Astin, whose performances I always enjoy. Here's the synopsis: Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved pets, an adorable cat and an...

Steven Soderbergh, What Happened? 4 Reasons ‘Logan Lucky,’ Wasn’t

21 August 2017 3:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky” opened to $7.6 million this weekend, well short of its tracking and good for only #3 on the worst summer weekend in two years. This, despite a cast full of draws like Daniel Craig and Channing Tatum, strong reviews, a distribution team of A players, and (overhyped) coverage of its would-be groundbreaking marketing and release plan.

As it turned out, those elements contributed to a complex set of factors that resulted in this meh of a weekend.

Here’s some key ones:

“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” Got in the Way

Studios largely abandoned August, a month that in recent years saw “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Suicide Squad” thrive. Enter Lionsgate, which knows how to find opportunistic dates for its genre films. In this case, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” overlapped some of what “Logan Lucky” had to offer, and offered greater appeal.

‘Patti Cake$’ Opens Soft as ‘Ingrid Goes West’ and ‘Wind River’ Hold Strong

20 August 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A slew of hit-and-miss indie films from Sundance and elsewhere continue to roll out at the specialty box office. Fox Searchlight took another blow as high-end Sundance acquisition “Patti Cake$” fell below the expectations set by its expensive $9.5 million price tag.

“Gook” (Goldwyn) and “Crown Heights” (Amazon Studios/IFC) both enjoyed respectable initial limited responses ahead of other openers. A24’s Robert Pattinson actioner “Good Time” also showed some promise in its second weekend.

The most encouraging news comes from the second weekend of Neon’s “Ingrid Goes West” and third for The Weinstein Co. breakout “Wind River.” Both look positioned to dominate the specialized scene over the next few weeks in advance of upcoming fall post-festival releases.

Opening

Patti Cake$ (Fox Searchlight) – Metacritic: 65; Festivals include: Sundance, South by Southwest, New Directors/New Films 2017

$66,000 in 14 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $4,714

Fox Searchlight won an intense Sundance acquisition battle with its reported $9.5 million offer. »

Aubrey Plaza on the Popularity Contest of Social Media, Her Dream Project with Bette Midler, and ‘Ingrid Goes West’

14 August 2017 5:51 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Even though she’s widely considered to be the Queen of Dry Wit, sitting in the hotel room where we’re about to talk about her latest film Ingrid Goes West, there’s an unexpected innocence to Aubrey Plaza that makes her seem more like Sandy from Grease before the makeover. She’s wearing a dark baseball jacket over a lovely plaid dress in blush tones, and rather than welcoming me with a raised eyebrow, she smiles. I reach out my hand to her to say hello and apologize because it’s cold, she raises the eyebrow and explains, “I’m sorry too because my hand is warm.” And suddenly Sandy has given path to the sardonic Rizzo. Since her breakthrough in Parks & Recreation, Plaza has become one of the funniest people in the industry. Period. Few actors can accomplish so much using so little and making it seem so effortless, »

Robert Pattinson’s ‘Good Time’ and Aubrey Plaza’s ‘Ingrid Goes West’ Open Strong at Specialty Box Office

13 August 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance hit “Ingrid Goes West” (Neon) and Cannes breakout “Good Time” (A24) both opened well in New York/Los Angeles dates. “A Trip to Spain” (IFC), the third installment of Michael Winterbottom’s comedy franchise, also had a decent showing.

And yet another indie director returning from studio franchise to specialty fare, Marc Webb, met scathing reviews for Amazon Studios’ “The Only Living Boy in New York” (Roadside Attractions), which opened wider to modest numbers.

Opening

Ingrid Goes West (Neon) – Metacritic: 70; Festivals include: Sundance, Los Angeles 2017

$141,216 in 3 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $47,072

A younger audience responded well to this specialized platform release about the risks of obsessive social media story involvement, which evoked a positive reaction when it premiered at the Sundance U.S. Dramatic Feature competition. Elizabeth Olsen and Aubrey Plaza added some name value to director Matt Spicer’s feature debut, which scored the third-best limited opening »

Meghan Rienks, Sasha Pieterse, Arden Cho, Karrueche Tran to Star in ‘Honored’ Teen Comedy Film From Lionsgate Digital (Exclusive)

9 August 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A quartet of social-media stars — Meghan Rienks, Sasha Pieterse, Arden Cho and Karrueche Tran — will topline Lionsgate Digital Studios’ “Honored,” a high-school buddy comedy revolving around childhood BFFs.

All four have sizable online followings, and Lionsgate is banking on that collective fanbase to provide ongoing promotion for the project — the latest in the “influencer driven” movie trend. Rienks (pictured above; Hulu’s “Freakish,” Go90’s “Mr. Student Body President”), Cho (“Teen Wolf”) and Tran Tran (“Claws,” “The Bay”) are popular YouTube personalities. Pieterse (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Inherent Vice”) has 7.2 million Instagram followers and nearly 2 million on Twitter.

“Honored” will be executive produced by Zoe, Cisely and Mariel Saldana’s Cinestar Pictures — the first feature film from the sisters’ banner — and Untitled Entertainment’s Kendall Rhodes and Jason Newman in association with Popsugar Films. The film is being produced by Liz Destro of Destro Films (“The Little Hours,” “Joshy”), while Jordan Gilbert and Lindsay Gomez are the creative »

‘Wind River’ Scores at Specialty Box Office as ‘Step’ Gains a Foothold

6 August 2017 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

During a competitive period when well-reviewed wide releases like “Dunkirk” and “Baby Driver” are luring adult audiences away from new smart-house fare, Weinstein stormed back at the specialty box office with Taylor Sheridan’s Wyoming western “Wind River,” which boasted one of the best limited openings of the year. A strong debut will help it stand out in the weeks ahead as the flow of new films declines.

Fox Searchlight welcomed a decent initial response for its heart-tugging inner-city dance documentary “Step” in seven cities. Also impressive is the two-theater launch for “Columbus,” starring Jon Cho as a Korean translator spending time in middle America due to a family emergency.

Opening

Wind River (Weinstein) – Metacritic: 73; Festivals include: Sundance, Cannes, Seattle 2017

$164,187 in 4 theaters; PTA (per screen average): $41,042

First Trailer for Sundance Nun Drama 'Novitiate' Featuring Melissa Leo

4 August 2017 6:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Do you think the Church is in need of change?" Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Novitiate, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Unlike the dirty nuns comedy that played at Sundance called The Little Hours, this one is a much more serious, straight-faced drama about a young nun in Catholic school in the 1960s. Melissa Leo stars as Reverend Mother Marie St. Claire, a ruthless mother superior who runs the school and disapproves of the new reform movement in the Catholic church. The story focuses on Cathleen, played by Margaret Qualley, a young initiate who struggles with issues of faith, sexuality, and recent changes in the Church life. The cast includes Liana Liberato, Dianna Agron, Eline Powell, Julianne Nicholson, Morgan Saylor, Chris Zylka, and Denis O'Hare. I've heard some good things about this, but I don't think it's a film for me. »

*Updated* Tragedy Girls Acquired by Gunpowder & Sky, Theatrical Release Slated for 2017

31 July 2017 8:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

*Updated with the official press release.* We've been excited for Daily Dead readers to watch MacIntyre's Tragedy Girls since our own Heather Wixson saw it at the SXSW Film Festival, saying that it "brilliantly turns the slasher genre on its head" in her five-star review. Thankfully, it looks like horror fans won't have to wait much longer to see it.

Press Release: Los Angeles – July 31, 2017 -- Gunpowder & Sky, the global content studio, today announced the acquisition of the teen-slasher-comedy, Tragedy Girls. The film follows two death-obsessed teens played by Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) who use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small midwestern town into frenzy and cement their legacy as modern horror legends. The acquisition comes just as the film made its Canadian debut at the Fantasia Film Festival.

Tragedy Girls was directed by Tyler MacIntyre, who also co-wrote the script with Chris Lee Hill. »

‘Detroit’ Tops Limited Openers, Along With ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ and ‘Menashe’

30 July 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a strong group of limited releases for a July weekend: Kathryn Bigelow’s “Detroit,” “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” and the Yiddish-language “Menashe” all performed well, as did Sony Pictures Classics’ “Bigsby Bear.”

Opening

Detroit (Annapurna) – Metacritic: 86

$365,455 in 20 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $18,273

Kathryn Bigelow’s first film since “Zero Dark Thirty” is the first released by Megan Ellison’s production company through its own distributor. With reviews nearly as strong as “Zero” and “The Hurt Locker” but shifting to the home front in this recounting of the Detroit riots exactly 50 years ago, this opened in 10 markets ahead of its wide release this Friday. This is a tough subject, however well received, and Annapurna and its team has a challenge opening this outside of the festival/awards season and finding a wide swath of African-American and other upscale audiences.
