Arthouse Audit: ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Soars as ‘Kedi’ Continues Strong

19 February 2017 9:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A successful Oscar season is wrapping up, as multiple contenders from the specialty world continuing their long runs. Last out of the gate is Documentary Feature contender “I Am Not Your Negro” (Magnolia) which is rapidly expanding far beyond most similar nominees in an era when most documentaries do not play outside their Oscar-qualifying theatrical runs.

Among limited films, the new releases are mainly niche items without high expectations, and will add little in upcoming weeks. However, strong new Los Angeles dates on the second week of cat documentary “Kedi” (Oscilloscope) showed that its big New York opening was no fluke.

Opening

Everybody Loves Somebody (Lionsgate) – Metacritic: 74; Festivals include: Palm Springs 2017

$1,000,000 in 333 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $3,003,000

The second 2017 release from Lionsgate’s Mexico producing partner Pantelion is a rom-com with a rare female director for this commercial general (mostly Latino) audience. Bilingual, it centers on an Los Angeles-based »

From Fifty Shades Darker to Split: What to see this Valentine's DayFrom Fifty Shades Darker to Split: What to see this Valentine's DayJenny Bullough2/14/2017 10:29:00 Am

Wondering what to do this Valentine’s Day? Although some degrade it as a mere "Hallmark holiday," it feels too weird not to acknowledge it in some way, even if we do so ironically or with our own spin! We admit we're biased here, but we think there's no better way to mark the occasion than with a movie, no matter what your romantic situation is today! Read on for our guide to what to watch today.

With your significant other

Candlelight dinners are very nice and all, but we confess, we kind of prefer snuggling up with our sweeties in a darkened movie theatre. Sharing the experience of watching a movie beats awkward dinner conversation any day!

Arthouse Audit: ‘Kedi”s Cats Rule ‘A United Kingdom’ as ‘Land of Mine’ Bombs

12 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At last, two 2017 openings have nothing to do with the Oscar race. “Kedi” (Oscilloscope) and “A United Kingdom” (Fox Searchlight) show promising or better initial grosses.

Two others, Best Foreign Language Film nominee “Land of Mine” (Sony Pictures Classics) and “2017 Oscar Nominated Shorts” (Magnolia) are timed to maximize their awards status. The Danish film drew limited interest while the latter, per usual, is nabbing some national attention.

Opening

Kedi (Oscilloscope) – Metacritic: 82; Festivals include: Palm Springs 2017

$40,510 in 1 theater; PTA (per theater average): $40,510

It’s not just Facebook. Moviegoers love cats too. This Turkish documentary about Istanbul’s centuries-old love affair with street felines opened at lower Manhattan’s Metrograph theater. With excellent reviews, two screens and a shorter than average running time, “Kedi” opened to a stellar gross that will likely stand as a high opening weekend mark for some time. Oscilloscope managed this feat without the benefit of heavy »

Berlinale: Golshifteh Farahani to Topline Eva Husson’s ‘Sun’ (Exclusive)

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

French-Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (“Paterson”) is set to topline “Girls of the Sun.” The drama follows a battalion of female resistance fighters, nicknamed the Girls of the Sun, who were former captives of extremists and have vowed to reconquer their own land.

Farahani will star as Bahar, a lawyer who turns into a fearless soldier and becomes chief of a battalion after being kidnapped while on a trip to her native village in Kurdistan with her husband and child.

Eva Husson’s follow-up to Toronto Festival player “Bang Gang,” “Girls of the Sun” is based on thorough research and hours of interviews, according to the producers. The movie reteams Husson with a “Bang Gang” producer, Didar Domheri at Paris-based Maneki Films.

The story of “Girls of the Sun” is structured around the women’s battle to reconquer the village, and the encounter between a woman journalist and a female warrior, »

2017 Oscar Snubs and Headscratchers

8 February 2017 6:19 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Academy Awards may be the most prestigious movie awards out there, but that doesn’t mean they always make the best decisions. Join us as we look at which potential nominees got left out and which nominees don’t belong.  

The nominees for the 2017 Academy Awards were announced on January 16th (see the entire list here), and the ceremony will take place on February 26th. We'll have to wait until then to see who wins, but based on the potential nominees that were left out we Do know who Won't be winning. After having a few weeks to think it over, here are my thoughts on the biggest mistakes that the Academy voters made this year. 

I’ll start by saying that the nominees this year aren’t really that surprising. Despite a few big snubs (discussed below) everything else pretty much fell into place as expected. I don »

Arthouse Audit: Oscar-Contender ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ Soars, ‘The Comedian’ Dies

5 February 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

I Am Not Your Negro” (Magnolia), Raoul Peck’s acclaimed documentary on author James Baldwin, opened extremely well this weekend to achieve an elevated position among this year’s Oscar Documentary Features. It also defied the usual strategy for specialized releases, documentary or otherwise, with a wider that usual first week opening.

It joins the Iranian “The Salesman” as a perfectly timed late-stage release. Asghar Faradi’s film expanded in its second weekend to about the same number of theaters showing “Negro.” They stand out as fresh blood in a period when multiple longer running Oscar nominees are still thriving, including a rare trifecta of three Best Picture nominees in the Top Ten: “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land” and “Lion.”

The first two Sundance 2017 films debuted theatrically, both with near-term home viewing prospects. Barbara Kopple’s “This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous”  (on YouTube Red this Wednesday) and “Oklahoma City” (on »

Iranian ‘Paterson’ Actress Golshifteh Farahani Says She Could Lose a Role Because of the Travel Ban

4 February 2017 1:16 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paterson” actress Golshifteh Farahani was exiled from Iran after she appeared in Ridley’s Scott’s 2008 film “Body of Lies” and appeared on screen and on the red carpet without a veil. The actress then moved to Paris, and while she doesn’t carry an Iranian passport, Donald Trump’s new travel ban could affect her career and next role.

“I’m supposed to go to the Us this Saturday for a movie, but I might not be able to go,” Farahani told The Hollywood Reporter. “The embassy is so busy. I’ve been trying to get an Esta, but I can’t even get onto the website. I think some crazy things are happening.”

The actress didn’t reveal the project she was scheduled to appear in, but added that producers were already searching for her replacement in case she was unable to travel.

Iranian-Born 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Star Says Trump Visa Ban Puts Next Role in Jeopardy

3 February 2017 8:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Golshifteh Farahani is no stranger to being barred from countries.

After appearing in Ridley Scott’s Body of Lies in 2008 alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, the Iranian-born actress found herself exiled from her own homeland, where hardline officials had taken offense to her appearing without a veil, both onscreen and on the red carpet.

Over the past decade, Farahani has been living in Paris and carving out a name for herself in the indie world, most recently alongside Adam Driver in Paterson, and big-budget fare such as Disney's upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

We're into the dead cold of winter, and there's no better place to escape than at a Cineplex theatre.

Luckily, there's tons of great new films to watch in theatres this month. It's a wide variety too, from erotic romances just in time for Valentine's day, action thrillers if that's more your style, and even satirical horror films. What a time to be alive!

We also are still catching up with Oscar contenders, which will be a big part of our watch list leading up to the big ceremony on February 26th. If you're feeling a bit nostalgic, you can also check out our Flashback Film Festival that has »

Kneejerk Reactions To The Oscar Nominations And The Final Word On 2017

29 January 2017 11:01 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Even when you live in Los Angeles, as I do, if you’re not in the network of critics groups and press screening and screener DVDs it can be a challenge to keep up with everything you tell yourself you have to see before attempting an informed roundup of the year currently in the rearview mirror. And I also try to not let more than a couple of weeks of the new year go by before checking in, regardless of how many of the year’s big presents I have left to unwrap, though in past years I have not lived well by this dictum—let’s just say that if I’m still posting stuff on the year’s best after even Oscar has thoroughly chewed over the goods, as has happened in the past, well, I’ve overstayed my welcome.

Amid Muslim Ban, Best Foreign Language Oscar Nominee ‘The Salesman’ Soars at Box Office

29 January 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the global furor over President Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims entering the United States, Asghar Farhadi’s Iranian Oscar nominee “The Salesman” (Cohen Media) opened to strong numbers in New York and Los Angeles. This drama had the best initial limited subtitled release in several years, bettering several films that won the Foreign Language Oscar. (Farhadi, who won the Oscar for “A Separation” in 2012, has just announced that he will not attend the Oscars in light of Trump’s ban.)

“The Salesman” was the sole limited opener to make a major impact; other noteworthy titles are films trying to capitalize on this week’s nomination hauls. Platform titles like “Hidden Figures,” “La La Land” (both now over $100 million), “Moonlight,” and “Manchester By the Sea” are now playing in wider breaks. Among the rest, Weinstein’s “Lion” is performing best, with over $2 million in 575 theaters.

Sundance Review: ‘Patti Cake$’ Has Infectious Energy and Familiar Beats

26 January 2017 5:46 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Rhymes, beats, and an audience are all that Patricia Dombrowski requires to achieve her dreams of rap stardom. She already has the former, composed from her personal experience on the thuggish streets and in the dreary bars of Dirty Jersey. Patti Cake$ is about the hard-fought search for the other elements. While there’s an infectious energy to the process of musical creation and an impressive lead performance from newcomer Danielle MacDonald, the feature debut of Geremy Jasper is ultimately hindered by predictable story beats and a cynical outlook at the world it’s capturing.

Patricia (MacDonald) lives with her ailing grandmother and an alcoholic mother Barb (Bridget Everett) who attempts to rekindle her prime at the local pub, where her daughter also bartends. To cope with this life of lower-class routine she raps as “Killa P” every chance she gets, from brushing her teeth in the bathroom to meeting up with her best friend, »

In 2015, Snickers and advertising agency Bbdo New York aired a Super Bowl spot that featured Danny Trejo playing Marcia Brady from “The Brady Bunch” prior to eating a Snickers Bar. Snickers followed up the Super Bowl ad with another in a similar vein featuring Willem Dafoe playing Marilyn Monroe.

Arthouse Audit: ‘The Red Turtle’ Swims, ‘Lion’ Roars at Specialty Box Office

22 January 2017 10:21 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As indie buyers determine the fate of this year’s Sundance entries, the specialty market continues to swing dramatically between awards players and soft newbies. New limited releases remain flat.

Showing particular strength is Sundance attendee Harvey Weinstein’s designated Oscar contender “Lion,” which saw a tiny drop as it slowly heads toward wider release. It could get a sizable Oscar boost over the next few weeks. Next week after nominations expect wider breaks for some pictures that have played in theaters for while.

Opening

The Red Turtle (Sony Pictures Classics) – Metacritic: 89; Festivals include: Cannes, Toronto 2016

$21,811 in 3 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $7,270; Cumulative: $39,435

This Belgian animated Cannes breakout (a rare European production from Japan’s Studio Ghibli) opened with high-end reviews in its official initial release in New York and Los Angeles (after an earlier Oscar-qualifying one-week run). The grosses didn’t rise to the level its earlier acclaim promised. »

The Vietnam War, the Civil Rights movement, and Black Lives Matter: political protest goes hand in hand with powerful music.

Film Review: Gravity of Poetic Dreams Carry Weight in ‘Paterson’

20 January 2017 8:12 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What is more ordinary than a man alone with his thoughts, and then applying those thoughts to paper in the form of poetry? “Paterson” is a celebration of such ritual, and other dreams in the working class. It never panders, it never makes the “hero” that heroic, but it does challenge him in an ordinary sense, to work it out as meaningful poetics.

Rating: 5.0/5.0

This is a quiet and low-keyed film, directed by independent icon Jim Jarmusch (“Broken Flowers”), but it resonates with the power of words and purpose. The main character is a bus driver, but his status in life is not determined by what he does, but how he lives. He is devoted to his wife, who also dreams – not of words, but in the ideal of finding her passion in life. This is a concise character study that fires on emotions and intellectual stimulation, not because »

Arthouse Audit: Audiences Skip Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’

15 January 2017 10:18 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year’s award season continues to yield a robust specialized bounty. The Oscar contenders are led by “La La Land” (Lionsgate) and “Hidden Figures” (20th Century Fox). The public, particularly older audiences, are coming out in big numbers for films that launched in limited release.

That doesn’t extend to new limited openings, with nearly all top distributors holding back until the awards noise dies down. Still, a few are venturing out with smaller less heralded films in New York (along with a plethora of Video on Demand releases). This week sees three of note, led by a very surprising total for “World’s Apart” (Cinema Libre), an under-the-radar 2015 Greek economic crisis drama.

Check out our Award Season video interviews. 

(All figures for three-day weekend through Sunday January 15.)

Paterson – Review

13 January 2017 2:36 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Adam Driver stars as a driver named Paterson from Paterson in Paterson. Got that? He drives a bus in New Jersey’s third most populous city where he lives in a small house with wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani) and bulldog Marvin. Each day, Paterson gets up, eats breakfast, walks Marvin, then goes to work.  Fascinated by his passengers, he listens in on their conversations. After work he stops by the same tavern for just one beer, then goes home to his wife. Paterson repeats that routine again the next day. A quiet man, Paterson writes poetry in a notebook in his spare time. His words are spelled out across the screen and we often hear him reciting them or working them out as he goes.

On the surface, not a lot happens in Paterson. His bus breaks down, but it’s hardly a crisis. Someone fires a gun in his favorite bar, »
