Looking back at director Damien Chazelle’s back catalogue, debut feature Guy and Madeline on a Park bench, his script for Grand Piano, and the film that made his name, Whiplash, it’s clear to see that his tastes in movies veer towards the musical. His latest feature, the seemingly unstoppable award winning juggernaut La La Land, sees all those loves and influences come to a head in an old school throwback that pays loving homage to an age of cinema where bright colours and the cast regularly burst into song. But does this romantic musical comedy/drama deserve the universal acclaim and record setting seven Golden Globe awards? Short answer: yes. A hundred times yes. Set in a Los Angeles (as much a character as the two leads) where the golden age of Hollywood bumps against the modern day, La La Land wastes no time in letting the audience »

Jason from Mnpp here. I probably wouldn't have thought about John Carpenter's 1988 goofy sci-fi classic They Live in relation to politics this year if the film hadn't been dragged kicking and screaming into the conversation by a bunch of Donald Trump's Nazi followers (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice-over voice: "And so I wondered -- are the terms 'Nazi' and 'Donald Trump Follower' redundant?").
But now that the film has been dragged into the conversation a story about a bunch of elite monsters blinding the populace while they loot the Earth doesn't exactly sound like the world's most far-out science-fiction story these days. So with the Inauguration looming like an orange-haired mushroom cloud before us - and, on a less fatalistic note, with it being John Carpenter's 69th birthday today - let's assume our places.

Fox and Chernin Entertainment’s “Hidden Figures” dominated the domestic box office, topping charts for the second straight weekend after earning $26 million. The film’s message of empowerment and triumph over prejudice was amplified by the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.
“This continues to be a movie for everyone,” said Chris Aronson, Fox’s head of domestic distribution. “It’s not just entertaining. It’s life affirming. It celebrates the triumph of the human spirit and that’s so important in these times.”
“Hidden Figures” is a latecomer to the awards season race, but the film, which stars Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer as African-American scientists and mathematicians in the early days of the space program, ranks as one of the most successful dramas of 2016. So far, it has earned $60.4 million. That commercial success could translate into Oscar attention when Academy Award nominations are announced next week.

Space-race drama Hidden Figures – about a group of black female mathematicians who were instrumental in getting the Apollo missions off the ground – has retained its position at the top of the Us box office as a slew of more obviously commercially targeted films failed to score with audiences.

Manuel here catching us up on a project that is primed to be billed as "The next La La Land." Not only is Michael Gracey's upcoming musical The Great Showman scheduled for release next Christmas (just in time for the holidays and awards season) but it features music by La La Land duo Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, who'll soon no doubt be credited with single-handedly bringing the original movie musical back to life.

The Oscars have never recognized a comic book film in the best picture category — but that could very easily change this year with Deadpool. The Tim Miller-directed and Ryan Reynolds-led Marvel movie was promoted to perfection, sustained hype, wowed critics, made a ton of money, and has been gaining steam throughout the entire awards season. Now, with mere days until Oscar nominations are announced, let’s see if this foul-mouthed fellow can surprise everyone and become the first superhero film to ever be nominated for best picture.
As far as precursor awards go, Deadpool has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards (best motion picture for a comedy/musical as well as lead actor for Reynolds), a DGA Award (for Miller), a PGA Award (for Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Reynolds), and a WGA Award (for Rhett Reese »

After having to apologize over a sexual harassment scandal last week, Chinese technology giant Tencent is back to dealmaking.
The Internet conglomerate's budding film company, Tencent Pictures, has agreed to serve as a strategic marketing partner for the upcoming release of Lionsgate's La La Land in China.
China's film regulators gave La La Land the green light for a local release last week. The film is being brought into China as a "flat-fee" title, meaning Lionsgate sold the distribution rights for a set sum and will not have a share in the local revenue.

Chinese social media and games giant, Tencent has come on board Lionsgate’s “La La Land” as a partner for the film’s upcoming release in mainland China.
The partnership is directed through the group’s one year-old film arm Tencent Pictures. It is Tencent Pictures’ second such deal with a Hollywood film, following “Warcraft” in mid-2016. The deal is of a strategic nature and does not see Tencent owning an equity stake in the movie.
According to Tencent, “La La Land” is to be imported on flat fee terms and is not one of the annual imported movies that are entitled to revenue sharing terms with the foreign rights owner. The release will be handled by China Film Co., supported by Joy Pictures and Baian Film.
Last week it emerged that the awards favorite film had been cleared for theatrical release in China after being approved by censors. It »

At the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 8, Ryan Gosling took the stage to accept his award for best actor for his role in La La Land, and while he gave his emotional acceptance speech, Ryan Reynolds and Andrew Garfield also celebrated by sharing a passionate kiss. Just like ex-girlfriend Emma Stone, Stephen Colbert wanted to know the meaning behind the smooch when the Hacksaw Ridge actor stopped by his show on Tuesday night. "I just wanted Ryan to know that I loved him no matter whether he won or lost," Andrew joked with the late night host. "It doesn't matter. It's how you play the game and you showed up. He gave his all. It doesn't change anything in my heart." Stephen, clearly feeling a little left out, then cajoled Andrew into their own hilarious makeout. Don't worry though, Ryan - you'll always have Conan. Related:Andrew Garfield on the »

The North America box office took it on the chin over the long Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Six films went into wide release in an already crowded marketplace, but their impacts ranged from so-so to downright awful. Oversaturation of mediocre product resulted in one of the weakest Mlk Jr. holiday frames in recent memory.
In the end, the most popular choices were ones that were already established hits. Fox’s historical drama Hidden Figures is shaping up as 2017’s first $100 million hit. The feel-good hit remained in the number one spot for a second week straight while dropping a mere 10% from the previous frame. Now on 3,286 screens, Hidden Figures has earned a solid $55 million so far. With Oscar nominations just around the corner, the film’s good fortunes should continue throughout this month and well into February.
