‘Blade Runner 2049’: Sony Comes Out Swinging With New Footage at CinemaCon

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sony didn’t pull any punches while kicking off CinemaCon in Las Vegas Monday night, as the studio took a shot at Netflix while debuting dazzling new footage of ‘Blade Runner 2049.’ After previewing an extended clip from the sequel to 1982’s “Blade Runner,” Sony chairman Tom Rothman remarked, “Netflix, my ass.”

Blade Runner 2049′: Official Title and First Pic for Sequel Revealed

Star Ryan Gosling was also on hand for the sneak peek, which showed the actor in a doom-laden Los Angeles that looks every bit as hypnotizing as the original film, but set in a future with sharper images, brighter lights, and more vivid colors.

“It was so surreal to be walking around in the universe of ‘Blade Runner,'” Gosling said, adding that the original film had a profound impact on him as a teen. “The craftsmanship on this film was really on another level. Every location was real, »

Newswire: Fox is making a movie musical inspired by Pharrell’s life

13 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Perhaps due to the success of La La Land, or perhaps just because singing and dancing is great, it seems everyone wants to make a movie musical these days. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum are collaborating on one, and now Pharrell Williams has another in the works.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox will make a musical inspired by Williams’ childhood called Atlantis. Williams and producing partner Mimi Valdes worked with the studio on Hidden Figures, which he also scored. The pair will produce this project as well, along with as Gil Netter. Michael Mayer, best known for his work on Broadway, will direct. THR doesn’t say whether or not Williams would actually score the project, although if he doesn’t, that would be a huge missed opportunity. Apparently, the story cribs a bit from Romeo And Juliet, so be forewarned: This could be very, very sad.

‘Moonlight’ Director Barry Jenkins to Write, Direct ‘Underground Railroad’ Series at Amazon

16 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins will write and direct a one-hour drama series about the Underground Railroad currently in development at Amazon, Variety has learned. The series will be based on Colson Whitehead’s best-selling book, “The Underground Railroad.”

“Going back to ‘The Intuitionist,’ Colson’s writing has always defied convention, and ‘The Underground Railroad’ is no different,” Jenkins said. “It’s a groundbreaking work that pays respect to our nation’s history while using the form to explore it in a thoughtful and original way. Preserving the sweep and grandeur of a story like this requires bold, innovative thinking and in Amazon we’ve found a partner whose reverence for storytelling and freeness of form is wholly in line with our vision.”

Published by Doubleday, “The Underground Railroad” has sold over 825,000 copies in the United States across all formats. An Oprah’s Book Club 2016 selection, New York Times bestseller, and the winner of the 2016 National Book Award »

16 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Fox has won a hot pitch for a musical inspired by Pharrell Williams.

The project, called Atlantis, is a musical that is being described as a Romeo and Juliet style story (with a music element) inspired by Williams’ childhood in Virginia Beach, Va.

Producer Gil Netter and Williams took the pitch out to the studios a few weeks ago, engendering simmering interest as studios watched Lionsgate enjoy massive success with La La Land and coveted their own musical number. Fox finally nabbed it last week.

‘Wilson’ Flops for Fox Searchlight as ‘T2 Trainspotting’ Holds Strong

26 March 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, strong holdover “T2 Trainspotting” outperformed Fox Searchlight disappointment “Wilson” at the specialty box office. Jazz documentary “I Called Him Morgan” is the bright spot among new specialty entries — at just one theater. This year, there are so many well-reviewed wide releases enjoying huge success with smart adults that the indies need a strong critical response to compete for moviegoers.

Opening

Wilson (Fox Searchlight)  Metacritic: 50; Festivals include: Sundance 2017

$330,000 in 310 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $1,065

Wilson” did not make a splash at Sundance, and even a top-flight specialized distributor like Fox Searchlight can’t transform a film with mediocre reviews into a success. It’s got a great pedigree — directed by Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”), Daniel Clowes adapted it from his own graphic novel and its includes Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern. Searchlight went with a non-platform wider initial release of 330 theaters. For all that, however, the results »

Bill Nighy Still Rocking Out in New Photo from Love Actually Reunion

24 March 2017 12:36 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Citizens in the U.K. are on the verge of the biggest — and funniest — biennial comedy show charity in the world. Red Nose Day, cofounded and organized by writer-director Richard Curtis, kicks off Friday on the BBC with a full seven-and-a-half-telethon hours of comedy. This edition will feature all stripes of playful fun (including a parody of La La Land‘s opening song “Another Day of Sun,” set in the perpetually cloudy London), but the centerpiece is obviously Curtis’s short film sequel to his most beloved film, Love Actually, entitled Red Nose Day Actually.

‘I Called Him Morgan’ Review: A Bittersweet Documentary About the Woman Who Saved a Jazz Legend’s Life (And Then Killed Him)

24 March 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This previous Oscar season was full of surprises, but chief among them was that the movie world suddenly found itself hosting a passionate conversation about the inherent blackness of jazz, and the tenuous share that white musicians — or connoisseurs — might possess of the art form. “La La Land,” in its own particular way, encouraged audiences to reckon with the history of jazz, and to consider whose it might be to preserve and pass down. But for all of the talk about the perils and problems of people writing themselves into that story, there’s been precious little discussion about the people who have been erased from it. Chief among them: women.

Seb could probably talk your ear off about legendary trumpeter Lee Morgan, about how the “hard bop” virtuoso joined up with Dizzy Gillespie when he was only 18, and went on to play with the likes of John Coltrane and »

'British films need more support', says Lionsgate UK CEO

24 March 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Star Wars is not a British movie, says Lionsgate UK boss, who is concerned about Brexit impact and blockbuster saturation.

The British independent film sector needs more help from public and private investors, Lionsgate UK & Europe CEO Zygi Kamasa has said in an interview today [Mar 24].

Speaking on BBC radio, the La La Land distributor, known for backing successful UK films including Saoirse Ronan drama Brooklyn and Noel Clarke’s Brotherhood, renewed calls first made to Screen for adjustments to the UK tax credit and cinema ticket prices to favour British films.

“There are ways the government can look at improving and enhancing investment in British productions,” he said.

“I’m not sure the one size fits all tax credit is the best system. Culturally it is very important that British independent films are helped in a greater way. That extra revenue [from a revised tax credit] could help it.”

“The tax credit is great. I wouldn’t want to deter film companies »

Ryan Gosling Explains Why He Laughed During Oscars Best Picture Mix-Up

23 March 2017 5:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nearly a full month has passed since the 89th Academy Awards show committed what many have come to regard as one of the most egregious and high-profile faux pas in Oscars history: when “La La Land” was announced as best picture instead of the actual winner, “Moonlight.”

And yet, “La La Land” leading man and beloved Hollywood “nice guy,” Ryan Gosling, is only just now offering an explanation for his oddly blithe reaction to the best picture mix-up. Amid a legion of shock, bewilderment, and light chaos following the Academy’s correction, the camera panned to Gosling’s face as he erupted into a fit of laughter — picture that has since circulated the viral rounds of cyberspace.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Gosling explained that his reaction (which might have otherwise been interpreted as some derivative of bitterness) was actually motivated by a surge of relief.

This year’s Oscars saw the biggest mistake in the history of  the Academy Awards when Warren Beatty announced Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” as the Best Picture winner when, in reality, the award belonged to Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight.” While on stage to receive the award that ended up not belonging to his film, “La La Land” star Ryan Gosling caught everybody’s attention for his reaction to the whole chaos: he just couldn’t stop giggling.
