Foreign Productions Flock to Brussels’ Locations, Tax Incentives

Foreign Productions Flock to Brussels’ Locations, Tax Incentives
The city of Brussels has seen a lot of excitement lately. Gangsters have been running wild with racing-car drivers, the Hitler Youth have taken to marching in the street, and a submarine has sunk, costing hundreds of lives. It’s fair to say that, even as far as movie shoots go, Brussels is nothing if not diverse, playing itself in the 1980s for Michael R. Roskam’s crime drama “Racer and the Jailbird,” doubling as wartime Berlin in Amma Asante’s powerful love story “Where Hands Touch,” and even dressing up as Russia in Thomas Vinterberg’s “Kursk,” the story of the Russian submarine that exploded underwater during a naval exercise in 2000. No wonder they’re calling it “the queen of filming locations.”

There are many reasons for the rise of Brussels as an international shooting hub, starting with its location in the heart of Europe, just 80 minutes from Paris and two hours by Eurostar from London

‘Custody’ Review: Viola Davis Can’t Save This Wildly Messy Lifetime Movie

‘Custody’ Review: Viola Davis Can’t Save This Wildly Messy Lifetime Movie
Custody” is the cliched wedding toast of movies. Actually, it’s the drunken cliched wedding toast of movies, in that it starts by defining the title — “the protective care or guardianship of someone or something,” in case you’re unfamiliar with the lofty legal term — before spiraling wildly off-topic, delving full-on into the lives of the wedding guests and often forgetting why these stories are relevant to the happy couple.

In other words, it’s a mess, and if you’re purely interested in Viola Davis’ involvement, I urge you to skip to the first and only paragraph below staring with “Viola Davis” (or the one ending with “our beloved Vi Vi”).

To continue the wedding analogy, the happy couple at the heart of “Custody” is Sara Diaz (Catalina Sandino Moreno) and her kids. A single mother working at a dry cleaner, Diaz is constantly worried about her kids getting into trouble,

A Low-Key Berlinale Yields Some Foreign Oscar Contenders to Watch

A Low-Key Berlinale Yields Some Foreign Oscar Contenders to Watch
Situated as it is in the dank tail-end of a cold German winter, the Berlinale never attracts as much attention from awards-watchers as its fellow European majors Cannes and Venice: The former, after all, takes place in sunny spring climes, when everyone has recovered sufficiently from the last awards season to contemplate the next one, while the latter glamorously kicks off the gilded fall festivals, handing the baton to Telluride and Toronto. Berlin’s programming, meanwhile, is arguably the most proudly esoteric of the three, with an emphasis on newer filmmakers and underexposed filmmaking regions and demographics.

None of that, needless to say, is exactly music to Oscar pundits’ ears, but for the keen-eyed observer, Berlin annually turns up a few contenders that stay the course all the way to the following February. It’s rare for a Berlinale premiere to make quite as big a splash as Wes Anderson

Every Oscar Nominee and Winner of Color in Acting Categories Post-2000

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The Oscars have been a source of contention for the last two years — but that is poised to change this year. At the source of the controversy is a lack of non-white performers among the 20 slots in the best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, and best supporting actress categories. Let’s see just how many minorities — of black, Asian, and hispanic descent — have been honored by the Academy since 2000.

#OscarsSoWhite is the term that has been used to describe the phenomenon of having non-white thespians completely shut out of the acting categories at the 2015 and 2016 ceremonies. Nearly all of Hollywood and the press have spoken out about this occurrence, though it looks like the 2017 ceremony could shape up to be one of the most diverse in history. Here is a breakdown of every nominee and winner post-2000:

For the 2000 ceremony, there was one minority for each acting category.

Condola Rashad Joins Chiwetel Ejiofor’s ‘Come Sunday’ for Netflix

Condola Rashad Joins Chiwetel Ejiofor’s ‘Come Sunday’ for Netflix
Condola Rashad has joined Chiwetel Ejiofor in Netflix’s religious drama “Come Sunday,” with Joshua Marston directing.

Ejiofor stars as Carlton Pearson, a popular evangelical minister of the Higher Dimensions Family Church in Tulsa, Okla., whose services drew as many as 5,000 people. He was deemed a heretic by his peers in 2004 as a result of his decision to begin preaching the doctrine of universal salvation — based on the concept that there is no hell — as what he called “the gospel of inclusion.”

Rashad will portray Pearson’s wife Gina, who filed for divorce from him last year, citing “incompatibility issues.”

The script was written by Marcus Hinchey, based on a 2005 “This American Life” radio episode. Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern is producing alongside Ira Glass and Alissa Shipp of “This American Life.”

Rashad worked with Marston on “Complete Unknown,” which he directed and co-wrote. She appeared earlier this year

Incarnate Review

Never heard of Incarnate? Of course not – it’s another under-the-radar Blumhouse special without any marketing campaign, starring a random Hollywood actor (Aaron Eckhart) who’s seemingly thrown to the proverbial low-budget production wolves.

Much like The Darkness or Visions or The Veil, there’s a reason why Blumhouse is sweeping Incarnate under the mainstream rug – much to director Brad Peyton’s despair – but, frankly, it’s the film’s own fault. Maybe Blumhouse would have been a little more sympathetic if this demonic possession flick wasn’t so-generic-it-hurts boring, even with a dash of Wachowski magic added to the fold (by way of The Matrix inspiration). Also, can someone please save David Mazouz from 2016 already, so he can stop starring in underwhelming Blumhouse horror fare?

Eckhart stars as family-man-turned-wheelchair-riding-super-exorcist Dr. Seth Ember, whose specialty is “evicting” demons (aka “parasites”) from the minds of possessed victims. He figured out that

Film Review: ‘Incarnate’

Film Review: ‘Incarnate’
When it comes to movies about demonic possession, the devil isn’t the only thing that’s in the details. It helps a lot if the filmmakers take a few intriguing detours while covering familiar territory, and it helps even more if you have a first-rate actor who’s totally committed to the lead role. (Sorry: Richard Burton’s hambone turn in “Exorcist II: The Heretic” doesn’t really count.) “Incarnate,” the latest offering from the Blumhouse house of horrors, offers a relatively fresh take on standard-issue exorcism-melodrama tropes, along with a performance by Aaron Eckhart that is more than persuasive enough to encourage the investment of a rooting interest. It may sound like damning with faint praise, but this briskly paced potboiler is better than it has any right to be.

Eckhart plays Dr. Seth Ember, a scruffy, wheelchair-bound expeller of unclean spirits who insists that he performs “evictions,

The Weekend Warrior 12/2/16: Incarnate, Jackie, Old Stone

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

It wasn’t a bad Thanksgiving weekend, especially for the Weekend Warrior who pretty much nailed two of his predictions for the weekend! Disney Animation’s Moana indeed at opened at #1 with $55.5 million for the three-day weekend (exactly my prediction), although it ended up with more--$81.1 million--in its first five days. The Brad Pitt-Marion Cotillard spy thriller, Allied (Paramount), directed by Robert Zemeckis, also opened with $18 million, right on track with my prediction. I guess I could take some comfort on being spot on with two of the Thanksgiving releases—like I said last week, that holiday weekend is a bear to predict—but I way overestimated the other two movies as sequelitis indeed hit Billy Bob Thornton
