Frank Zappa

London-based Great Point Media has bolstered its sales slate ahead of this month’s European Film Market (Efm) in Berlin.

The company has picked up Zappa, Alex Winter’s upcoming documentary about the pioneering musician Frank Zappa. Currently in pre-production, the feature is from Glen Zipper, the Oscar-winning producer of American Football doc Undefeated.

Director Winter is known for his acting roles as Ted in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. His previous filmmaking credits include docs Downloaded and Deep Web.

Currently in pre-production, Zappa will have unprecedented access to a vault of archive material (music, films, photography) about the musician

Requiem episode 1 review

Aliya Whiteley Feb 2, 2018

With spoilers, here's our review of the first episode of Requiem...

In these days of boundless choice when it comes to entertainment, sometimes I find I don’t know what I want to watch next. From the latest cinematic offerings to the range of options with each streaming service: what is it that will really reward my attention? Realism or escapism? Drama or comedy? I’ve had a lacklustre January, entertainment-wise, moving from one thing to another and never really getting sucked in to a story. But then I watched the first episode of Requiem and realised that what I was after was a dose of old-school unashamed horror.

Requiem has everything that reminds me of those films of the past that got right under my skin and stayed there: The Turn Of The Screw came to mind, as did 1974 horror film Symptoms, and Alejandro Amenábar’s The Others.

New Trailer For The Eerie Gothic Irish Horror Thriller The Lodgers

We've got an eerie new trailer for you to check out for a wickedly creepy gothic haunted house horror thriller called The Lodgers. The story is set in the 1920s and centers on twins who live together in an old gothic haunted mansion filled with dark and malevolent spirits that terrorize them.

I love watching horror movies like this, and I really like what I'm seeing in this trailer. The movie has a similar tone to films like The Others, Crimson Peak, and The Woman in Black, all of which I liked. Here's the synopsis:

A gothic ghost story about orphaned twins Edward and Rachel who share a crumbling manor in 1920s rural Ireland. But they are not alone. They share the house with unseen entities who control them with three absolute rules. As separate fates draw them apart, the twins must face the terrible truth about their family’s ghostly tormentors.

‘Mission: Impossible’ Producer Paula Wagner to Be Honored at Camerimage

Poland’s Camerimage cinematography fest, which kicked off Saturday, will honor Paula Wagner with its prize for “producer with unique visual sensitivity,” in recognition for her work on such films as “Mission: Impossible” and other partnerships with co-producer Tom Cruise.

With four decades of work, starting with projects such as Alejandro Amenábar’s chiller “The Others” and Billy Ray’s journalist drama “Shattered Glass,” the former actress built her career via agency work, repping talents such as Sean Penn, Val Kilmer, Demi Moore and Liam Neeson while at the Creative Artists Agency.

In 1993, she launched Cruise/Wagner Productions, which took on the film adaptation of the hit ‘70s TV suspense series “Mission: Impossible,” launching the franchise that continues to roll along. Cruise and Wagner also worked on Cameron Crowe’s mystery romance “Vanilla Sky,” based on Amenábar’s “Abre los ojos.”

The 20 Scariest Movie Scenes of the 21st Century
Horror movies are so much more than the sum of its parts, but no genre is more dependent on the power of discrete scenes, self-contained episodes to make you feel like you’re sweating through what’s happening on screen first-hand. It doesn’t matter if a horror movie is an atmospheric slow-burn, or if it’s a symphony of jump-scares that alternates between peaks of sustained tension and long valleys of eerie calm, all of the most terrifying films rely on a few unforgettable moments. Some of these instances are long setpieces, some are just perfectly executed jolts, but all of them are exquisitely traumatizing microcosms of the movies that contain them.

Nicole Kidman’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey

Nicole Kidman’s Best Performances — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” what is Nicole Kidman’s greatest performance?

Vadim Rizov (@VRizov), Filmmaker Magazine

I don’t know about “best” — I haven’t seen an embarrassing chunk of what are considered her most significant roles, and I’m weak on understanding acting — but the performance that sticks most in my mind (quite possibly because I saw it at impressionable high school age) is “Dogville.” Kidman is spookily withdrawn, like an observer alien in a human body dropped into a moral wasteland which she attempts to navigate with understanding and decorum until finally it’s just too much. As in “Birth,

Nicole Kidman is the latest actress to speak up, in light of the unfolding Harvey Weinstein scandal.

While Kidman did not state Weinstein’s name, she has worked with Weinstein on a slew of films, including “Cold Mountain,” “The Others,” “Nine” and, most recently, “Lion,” for which she was nominated for an Oscar.

Kidman follows many A-list actresses who have begun to speak out against Weinstein, as more and more devastating accusations come out against the Hollywood producer, who was fired from his own company this past weekend. Last week, the New York

'Marrowbone': Film Review | Tiff 2017

'Marrowbone': Film Review | Tiff 2017
Children and big, mystery-stuffed houses are hardly unusual ingredients in thrillers; they're about as common as bumps in the night. But their pairing in Marrowbone, the first feature directed by Sergio G. Sanchez, strikes a familiar and deeply satisfying chord. Set in 1969 America but filmed in Spain, it from the start recalls several other pictures made in Spain by Spanish or Mexican filmmakers: not just The Orphanage, which Sanchez wrote for director J.A. Bayona, but Alejandro Amenabar's The Others and the Spanish Civil War-set ghost stories of Guillermo del Toro. (Tellingly, Marrowbone's Alvaro Augustin has served as a producer...

The 20 Best Movie Endings of the 21st Century

  • Indiewire
A movie is only as good as its ending. At the very least, that’s certainly how it can feel right after you finish watching one. Of course, each film demands a different kind of finale, and it would be futile to try and generically describe what makes for a “good” one — you know one when you see it. Some stories are best served by ending with a jarring twist that makes you reconsider everything you’ve seen before it. Others require the perfect note of ambiguity, or that immortal line of dialogue to help seal the deal. Every great film ends on its own terms, but all of them do so in a way that ultimately makes the whole experience impossible to forget. Here are the 20 best movie endings of the 21st Century.

Note: Needless to say, there’s a five-alarm spoiler alert in effect for the rest of this article.

Watch The Thrilling Trailer For Marshall Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad And Kate Hudson

Witness the rise of the man who changed America. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) is Thurgood Marshall.

Also starring Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown and James Cromwell, watch the exciting trailer now.

Such an dynamic trailer – with a fall season release date, expect to see awards buzz for such a powerful film. Acting, directing, writing, producing categories, including the technical categories for cinematography, costumes, hair and makeup, and production design, with score and song to round out the possible nominations.

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, Marshall, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

The film has a top notch production team.

Directed by Reginald Hudlin, Marshall is produced by Paula Wagner, Jonathan Sanger ( The Elephant Man, Vanilla Sky, Flight Of The Navigator), and Reginald Hudlin. It is written by Jake Koskoff and Michael Koskoff.

Hudlin co-produced the 88th Academy Awards ceremony in 2016 and was one of the producers of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture for the film.

Paula Wagner launched Cruise/Wagner Productions (C/W) with her former CAA client Tom Cruise. C/W went on to produce such critically acclaimed films as The Others, The Last Samurai, Vanilla Sky, Without Limits, Shattered Glass, Narc, Elizabethtown, and Ask the Dust, as well as Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds (which Wagner executive produced). C/W was responsible for the original Mission: Impossible film trilogy (Mission: Impossible 2 and Mission: Impossible III).

Open Road Films will release Marshall on October 13, 2017. Mark it on your calendar now.

2017-05-09T12:18:43-07:00Nicole Kidman Really Knows How to Clap

We've got to hand it to Nicole Kidman—she knows how to laugh at herself!

Despite being the star of a show about murder, the Academy Award-winning actress definitely has a sense of humor. Kidman was all smiles on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday as she talked with Ellen DeGeneres about her successful HBO miniseries Big Little Lies (which will almost certainly be up for an Emmy this year) and the hilariously awkward moment at the 2017 Oscars when she seemingly forgot how to clap.

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch
Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to
