Bregman, who actor Al Pacino once described in a Hollywood Reporter interview as "my guy," also produced Carlito's Way, Serpico and Sea of Love with the actor, and was slated to produce David Ayer's upcoming adaptation of Scarface.
Pacino has often credited the producer with offering him crucial early career guidance. "I'm missing a lot not having him around anymore," Pacino said in a 2014 ...
While Set It Up writer Katie Silberman and producer Juliet Berman met as Hollywood assistants, they insist they worked for wonderful bosses. But hearing horror stories of other assistants grappling with the unreasonable demands of their horrible bosses inspired them to turn those tales into the romantic comedy, Set It Up, now streaming on Netflix.
In the film, Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell play overworked assistants to a powerful sports reporter (Lucy Liu) and investment executive (Taye Diggs), respectively. Frustrated by having to tend to their bosses needs around the clock, they conspire ...
“If I had to base my career on what white men wanted I would be very unsuccessful,” said Kaling in an interview with Yahoo. “So there is obviously an audience out there who want to watch things like [Ocean’s 8], what I work on, what Sarah [Paulson] works on.”
In the Chinese box office record books, “Fallen Kingdom” has now entered the top ten highest opening weekends for that market, sitting in the No. 8 spot. It ranks fourth among opening weekends for import films, sitting behind “The Fate of the Furious,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Transformers: The Last Knight.”
Directed by Christopher Quinn, the IFC-released movie opened Friday to a number of sold-out shows with Portman in attendance for Q&As. At one of them, she revealed that the impact of the movie has motivated her to consider supporting other projects related to her dietary lifestyle.
“I’ll share with you guys my dream,” she said, noting that she had no specific projects like “Eating Animals” in the pipeline. “It would be my dream to make one of those cooking shows, but only for vegan food.
Nora Twomey’s “The Breadwinner,” a moral co-victor, swept three awards, including two key trophies: the Annecy Audience Award, the statue that really counts for distributors and sales agents, and the festival’s Jury Award.
While almost all of Travolta’s films in the last 30 years have been either in extremely limited release or with screen counts of 2,500 or more, this counts as the worst opening for the actor since the 1991 film “Shout,” which opened to $1.61 million on 968 screens and was considered one of the star’s biggest pre-“Pulp Fiction” flops.
But “Gotti” hasn’t been able to find similar success this weekend, posting a per-screen average of just $3,320. Analysts told TheWrap prior to this weekend that “Gotti” needed to make around $3 million — or a $6,000 PSA — to be considered a successful launch.
Yet who would have guessed that “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?,” Morgan Neville’s transporting documentary about Fred Rogers and his quirky oasis of children’s television, would also turn out to be a tale for our time? Audiences lining up to see it are probably having the same experience I did: You walk in thinking that you
The companies aim to co-develop and co-finance low budget genre movies, made in the Chinese language for consumption by Chinese audiences.
No production targets were set beyond the first picture, which is now at the scripting stage. The film has no title or director attached, but is expected to shoot at Blum’s U.S. facility within the next 12 months. Typically of Blum’s output, the budget ceiling is maximum of $5 million. China theatrical distribution is to be handled through Tmp’s Chinese unit and local partnerships.
“We are looking to take our low budget system and apply it in China,” Blum told Variety. “We are looking at local books, local legends, and having local creatives at involved at the development and script stage.”
You can’t fault now-25-year-old “American Animals” co-star Blake Jenner too harshly for this shallow muddle of a screenplay, as he was apparently still in his teens when he wrote it several years ago. However, inexperience is not a viable excuse for director Bradley Bueckner, even if this is his first directorial feature. He’s been a busy editor,
From film festival sensation to streaming channel content: it’s a swift, cinema-skipping trajectory that more and more outstanding films are taking these days, and one I’ve discussed often in this column. But the downshift in screen size for The Tale, an emotional gut-punch now streaming at Sky-owned NowTV, feels especially notable in this regard – a case of a potentially era-defining film entrusted to the unpredictable hands of online distribution.
The first narrative film by the accomplished documentary-maker Jennifer Fox, The Tale was the uncontested toast of a low-key Sundance film festival in January, inspiring the most impassioned reviews out of the snowy Utah hills, as well as some of the fiercest deal-making. The excitement was understandable: by virtue of unplanned timing as well as its own candid,
Christmas has come early to “Pose.” In fact, it arrived in June for Sunday’s episode, titled “Giving and Receiving,” which follows the yuletide experiences of the families in three different homes: the House of Evangelista, the House of Abundance, and the Bowes’ household.
Christmas movies, episodes, and TV specials have become a genre unto themselves, often appealing to non-Christian and secular viewers. While “Pose” may offer a more unique point of view to audiences unfamiliar with the ‘80s ballroom culture, its storytelling often falls into conventional patterns and tropes, and its Christmas episode is no different.
Series producer Our Lady J wrote “Giving and Receiving” with Janet Mock. “Beyond all of the glamour and glitz of the ballroom scene, ‘Pose’ is about family, and what better way to celebrate a TV family than a very special Christmas episode,” said Our Lady J to IndieWire.
This is the last episode provided to critics before next week’s season finale, which means that no, we have no idea what happens next either, and that this review will be untainted by any potential future knowledge. Enjoy.
It’s not a good day for anyone in the Westworld park, as the game pieces get set up for next week’s final conclusion. Unlike “Game of Thrones,” creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy don’t choose to play their biggest hand in the penultimate episode.
The focus is largely on William, as flashbacks to the not-too-distant past depict what happened the night his wife Juliet committed suicide. Earlier that evening, the two of them had been attending a gala in William’s honor, but the snide teasing William receives about his “humble roots” as well as Juliet’s public drunkenness
After a 13-and-a-half-year hiatus a beloved Pixar franchise proved the old adage that absence makes the heart grow fonder as Incredibles 2 arrived on an estimated $180m to deliver the highest debut for an animated feature and a PG release in North American box office history.
Active in 4,410 theatres, the family smash delivered an exceptional $40,816 as the overall weekend gross far exceeded the November 2004 original’s $70.5m opening salvo and doubled its $92.9m inflation-adjusted equivalent.
Voiced by Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Samuel Jackson, director Brad Bird and Catherine Keener, Incredibles 2
The monster movie grossed an estimated $112 million in the Middle Kingdom between Friday and Sunday. It played 175,000 screenings per day according to local data provider Ent Group, and claimed an astonishing 86% share of revenue on Friday. The score includes $10 million earned from 520 IMAX venues.
The film’s weekend score compares with $67 million earned in the official three-day opening of its predecessor “Jurassic World,” but which then added a further $30 million to its first weekend total through two days of previews. The RMB715 million local currency figure is the fourth highest ever achieved in China by an imported film in a three-day opening, behind “The Fate of the Furious” (Rmb 1.3 billion), “Avengers: Infinity War” (Rmb 1.2 billion) and “Transformers: The Last Knight” (Rmb 795 million).
