Thunderbird Releasing Takes ‘Una,’ ‘Brimstone’ for U.K. (Exclusive)

25 April 2017 8:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Thunderbird Releasing has added Benedict Andrews’ “Una” and Martin Koolhoven’s “Brimstone” (pictured) to its U.K. distribution slate. Both films saw their U.K. premieres at the 2016 London Film Festival and are scheduled for release in September this year.

“We’re thrilled to add two intelligent and entertaining female-driven titles to our slate,” said Thunderbird managing director Edward Fletcher. “We’ve had great early exhibitor interest and, with the support of all the talent involved, look forward to delivering engaging U.K. campaigns.”

Una,” based on Scottish playwright David Harrower’s award-winning play “Blackbird,” stars Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn in the roles played by Michelle Williams and Jeff Daniels in last year’s Broadway revival of the work. Also starring Riz Ahmed, the film focuses on the fraught and emotionally devastating ramifications following a young woman’s attempt to track down a man from her past, which unearths long-buried secrets. »

Review: Paterson (2016)

13 April 2017 4:37 PM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Let us go then, you and I, to Paterson, New Jersey: birthplace of Allen Ginsberg, and longtime home of modernist poet William Carlos Williams. It’s a city known for its poetry. For this review we turn our attention to one poet in particular, a man who himself is called Paterson, played by the ever-impressive Adam Driver.

Over the past five years Driver has become a quiet but un-ignorable presence in entertainment, both in film and on television. From his role as the illusive and wild Adam Sackler in the Lena Durham-created Girls (2011), to his role as Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) and as Father Garupe in Silence (2016), as well as a range of smaller roles, including bit-parts in films like Lincoln (2012) and Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) the Juilliard trained actor has made quite a name for himself. It seems ironically appropriate then that the young actor, »

‘Paterson’ Takes Viewers on a Bus Ride Through One Man’s Secret to Happiness

4 April 2017 12:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This Week in Home VideoPlus 7 more new releases to watch at home this week on Blu-ray/DVD.

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekPaterson

What is it? A bus driver writes poetry in his spare time about the world and stuff.

Why see it? The brief summation above is pretty much accurate in describing the whole of Jim Jarmusch’s latest, but it doesn’t begin to capture the warmth, humor, and humanity the film delivers. Adam Driver plays the title role and creates a character far removed from the easily antagonized and disgruntled ones he’s best known for. His Paterson is a simple man of simple pleasures, but while most films would mock or sideline him here he’s embraced. Even better, his demeanor and perception of the world are remarkably calming and infectious »

Paterson (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored. In following the cyclical life of Adam Driver‘s Paterson, a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, who also has dreams of being a poet, Jarmusch superbly shows that one’s own life »

Ridley Scott Eyes Michelle Williams for ‘All The Money In The World,’ Golshifteh Farahani to Lead ‘Santa & Cie,’ and More

3 April 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Alien: Covenant on its way — and his announcement that he’d like to helm many more of them — director Ridley Scott also has plans to direct All The Money In The World, according to Deadline. The film tells the true story of the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III by mob-tied captors, and the desperate attempts of his grandfather to get him back. While Natalie Portman was originally circling the film, Michelle WilliamsMark Wahlberg, and Kevin Spacey are now in talks to star in the ticking-clock thriller.

The 79-year-old Scott has also added another film to his sky-high pile of potential projects. Deadline reports he’s now attached to a World War II drama based around the Battle of Britain, a major skirmish fought in the air that was a major coup for Allied forces. Scripted by Matthew Orton, who also wrote the upcoming Oscar Isaac-led Nazi-hunting thriller Operation Finale, »

4 Great Films New to Movies On Demand in April 2017, Including ‘Toni Erdmann’ and ‘Split’ — IndieWire on Demand

31 March 2017 11:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies on Demand. Catch up on the latest films On Demand here.]

Movies on Demand continues to add a wide variety of audience favorites, even as the 2016 awards season is firmly in the rear view. Check out four of our favorite films from the upcoming month below, as well as the full list of great movies available throughout April.

1) “Paterson” (Available April 4)

Making a film about a poet is difficult, but Jim Jarmusch’s modest portrait of a modest Jersey bus driver finds something profound in simplicity. The week-in-the-life approach that Jarmusch takes with his script gives Adam Driver a career-expanding performance filled with warmth and empathy. Toss in one of the most adorable dogs in all of cinema and you have a film from a director returning to form.

2) “Lion” (Available April 11)

Based on Saroo Brierley’s real-life, Google-Earth-aided quest to find his birth family, Garth Davis’ film spans countries with a grace and respect that similar adoption stories rarely have. »

Film History Royalty: Jean-Pierre Léaud as Louis Xiv

31 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The 400 Blows. Courtesy of ShutterstockFor many directors, casting decisions are a crucial part of the writing process. They set the parameters in which the character can develop itself. Fundamentally, a good casting decision can make a character transcend its own scripted ambitions into wonderful, unexpected territories. But bad casting, as we know, can cripple not just a character’s potential but the entire film. It’s hard to talk about casting choices as creative decisions since they are so ingrained within certain creative impulses—the decision of choosing a particular actor over another can be based on mere gut feeling, a hunch, or an intellectual response. But of course, it can also depend (as it often does in large budget films) on an actor’s status, reputation or his or her monetary value. As we get to know actors, we see them typecast or cast against type but sometimes »

7 Filmmakers Turning Amazon Into An Art House Cinema Powerhouse

28 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hot off the critical and awards season success of Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea,” Amazon is continuing to ink major production deals with some of the art house world’s biggest stars, from newly-minted Oscar winner Barry Jenkins to the the delightfully original Leos Carax — and that’s just the start. Amazon’s relationship with creators also includes a number of television heavy-hitters, including Amy Sherman-Palladino and Matthew Weiner, but the keen eye they’ve turned on filmmakers is the one to watch.

Still, there is much work to be done. While Amazon has had major success working with filmmaker and showrunner Jill Soloway — and its latest batch of pilots includes a standout from “Gilmore Girls” alum Sherman-Palladino — the list of filmmakers who recently signed on to produce features with the studio is woefully lacking when it comes to female talents. If you can grab a Yorgos Lanthimos, »

Paterson; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them; The Edge of Seventeen and more – review

26 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jim Jarmusch’s lovely Paterson looks for poetry in the everyday, while a Harry Potter spin-off is all style and no substance

Last week it was World Poetry Day, and if such randomly appointed occasions carried much meaning beyond a trending Twitter hashtag, I’d say it’s an apposite time to be releasing Paterson (Soda, 12) on DVD. Cinema has a patchy record of encapsulating other art forms, but something like a poet’s soul runs through Jim Jarmusch’s lovely, languid study of being. It’s not just in the elegant, surprisingly credible verse (courtesy of the venerable Ron Padgett) supposedly written by its protagonist, a peaceable New Jersey bus driver, exquisitely etched by Adam Driver, living for his lover, his art and, contentedly, not much else. Paterson works up strikingly little conflict as it follows his daily circuit around the faded, resting city with which he shares a name. »

New to Streaming: ‘Paterson,’ ‘Julieta,’ ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ and More

24 March 2017 8:15 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.

Evolution (Lucile Hadžihalilovic)

Near the beginning of Evolution, there’s a shot that hangs underwater, showing a seemingly harmonious aquatic eco-system that’s glimpsed just long enough to create the sense of something that, while somewhat familiar, is distinctly outside the human world. This fleeting image though shows the promise of the film Evolution could’ve been. – Ethan V. (full review)

First Teaser for Naomi Kawase’s ‘Radiance’

16 March 2017 7:14 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While Naomi Kawase‘s cachet stateside hasn’t necessarily increased in the last few years, her last film, Sweet Bean, did manage to get a U.S. release. The Japanese filmmaker is now returning with her follow-up, Radiance (aka Hikari), which is set for a Japanese release at the end of May, hinting at a likely return to the Cannes Film Festival.

The first teaser trailer has landed, which previews the story of a film writer who meets a photographer who is losing his eyesight. Starring Masatoshi Nagase (last seen at the end of Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson), Ayame Misaki, and Tatsuya Fuji, check out the trailer below (via Cine Maldito), which is currently without subtitles, but we’ll update if they arrive.

Misako is a passionate writer of film versions for the visually impaired. At a screening, she meets Masaya, an older photographer who is slowly losing his eyesight. »

‘Personal Shopper’ Tops New Openers, and ‘A Very Sordid Wedding’ Shines

12 March 2017 11:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One year ago, the post-Oscar specialized rebound began with the release of “Eye in the Sky” and “Hello, My Name Is Doris.” Each opened with per-theater averages over $20,000; then, with support from older audiences all across the country, made $19 million and $14 million, respectively.

This year it’s “Personal Shopper,” with the French film starring Kristen Stewart showing unexpected interest. “Raw” (Focus) and “A Sense of the Ending” (Lionsgate) also managed PTAs over $10,000, indicating some chance for future success.

Ahead of any other new release in PTA was a single theater, premiere-event boosted initial date for “A Very Sordid Wedding” in Palm Springs. This week also saw the very limited opening of “Burning Sands,” the second film in the Sundance 2017 U.S. dramatic competition to find its home on Netflix. As usual, no gross for this, which is sort of beside the point.

Terry Gilliam Has Begun Shooting ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,’ For Real This Time

9 March 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terry Gilliam has finally begun filming on his very, very long-gestating passion project, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote.”

A source close to the production confirmed to IndieWire that shooting began this week. There’s also the first photos from the set in the form of two Instagram posts, one from actress Rossy de Palma (who was to be part of the movie’s original production in 2000) and one from makeup artist Sylvie Imbert.

De Palma’s post, dated Feb. 27, is a photo of the cover of the film’s screenplay captioned, “FinallyHereWeAre.” Imbert’s post, dated March 6, shows her poring over a production grid for the film and is captioned, “Final touches last night.”

The original 2000 production was infamously delayed and waylaid by a variety of disasters, which were captured in the 2002 documentary “Man of La Mancha.” In October 2016, Gilliam was supposed to go into production with leads Adam Driver and Michael Palin, »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Table 19’ Leads Weak Post-Oscar Field

5 March 2017 9:48 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The week after the Oscars, most of the contenders are moving on to home viewing. It was a terrific season, but the market needs strong new entries to stem the box-office slide.

Neither of this week’s two most prominent releases — “Table 19” with a national Fox Searchlight break and “The Last Word” (Bleecker Street) — will bolster box office. It also doesn’t help that two highly-touted and well-reviewed wide release studio films, Fox’s  “Logan” and Universal’s “Get Out,” are competing for many of the same viewers.

A series of smaller niche audience releases remain. And four this weekend are either Israeli or aimed at audiences interested in Jewish topics. Led by “Women in the Balcony” (Menemsha) they could see further life over the next several weeks.

Opening

Table 19 (Fox Searchlight) – Metacritic: 38

$1,575,000 in 868 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $1,815

Fox Searchlight opted to take this poorly-reviewed wedding »

Arthouse Audit: ‘My Life As a Zucchini’ Tops New Limited Releases

26 February 2017 10:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The marathon run of specialized awards contenders reaches its climax tonight. Only a handful will get a further boost. It has been a strong season, with business spread out among multiple films.

Meantime, a handful of releases outside the awards world, led by cat documentary “Kedi” (Oscilloscope) and the wider decently performing “A United Kingdom” (Fox Searchlight) will need to make up the gaps ahead.

One final Oscar nominee, the Swiss animated feature “My Life As a Zucchini” (Oscilloscope) had a decent start in a single theater each in New York and Los Angeles. This will see some niche life ahead as arthouses look for needed supplementary releases.

In every previous case of the first release of a Sundance U.S. Dramatic Competition winner would be the top story in this report, as was the case for “The Birth of a Nation” and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. »
