Cannes: Rafe Spall Heads to ‘Denmark’ for WestEnd Films

Cannes: Rafe Spall Heads to ‘Denmark’ for WestEnd Films
British actor Rafe Spall is set to star in bittersweet comedy “Denmark,” which worldwide sales company WestEnd Films will introduce to buyers at the Cannes Film Market this week. The film sees the actor teaming with director Adrian Shergold, who directed his father Timothy Spall in 2005 biopic “Pierrepoint” about Britain’s last hangman.

Described as “a bittersweet comedy about one man’s pursuit of a dream no more ridiculous than the times we live in,” “Denmark” sees Spall star as a down-on-his-luck Welshman without a job or access to hot water, who makes a decision to change his life for the better. With nothing to lose, and everything to gain, he travels across Europe with one crazy goal: to get himself arrested and sent to a Danish prison where the beds are warm and the water is hot.

European Union’s Media Program Celebrates 25 Years of Cultural Support

European Union’s Media Program Celebrates 25 Years of Cultural Support
In era of continued friction among European Union states, and an upcoming EU referendum in Blighty that may see the country exit the 28-member state in June, Creative Europe’s Media Program has long been a haven of openness and inclusiveness across the creative industries.

There are seven film in Cannes Competition they have tapped Media funding, including Pedro Almodovar’s “Julieta.”

Founded in 1991 by the EU, the Media Program set out to support collaboration and cultural diversity among European audiovisual players in what was, at the time, a fragmented market. Focusing initially on film content, the program has since diversified its reach to TV and gaming in response to the media sector’s changing landscape.

In the past 25 years, Media has invested €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) into film, television and video content across development, promotion and distribution within the continent and beyond.

The Least Profitable Films Of The Year Prove The Star Is Dead

This week Neil Calloway argues that big name film stars alone are no longer a guarantee of box office return…

This week the least profitable films of the year were announced, with films starring household names such as Chris Hemsworth, Bill Murray and Sean Penn all appearing in movies that made the list.

At first glance, it might seem unusual that such big names would appear in a list of the least profitable films of the year. Really looking at it though, and looking at their respective filmographies, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Bill Murray has the dubious honour of not only starring in Rock The Kasbah, the film that appears at the top (or bottom depending on your point of view) but also appearing in Cameron Crowe’s much derided Aloha, which appears at number 9 in the list. With a budget of $15 million, a box office of

Bill Murray: His best performances to date

Few actors in Hollywood are quite as uniquely beloved as Bill Murray is. It’s almost beyond explanation, but he’s considered the movie industry’s wacky uncle in a way. With the release this weekend of his newest film Rock the Kasbah (which I have to admit, I have yet to see), I wanted to honor Murray by running down what I consider to be his best performances to date. It’s of course my own personal list, so keep that in mind, but he’s someone who is hopefully one day going to win an Academy Award, so there’s no shortage of quality work to pull from. Behold the list below… Here now is what I feel are Murray’s ten best performances so far: 10. Zombieland – One of the great modern celebrity cameos is Murray playing himself in this action/comedy/horror hybrid. It was also one

Bill Murray's 10 Funniest Roles, Ranked

Bill Murray is a bona-fide legend. Simply mentioning his name is enough to make anyone who has ever seen one of his films break out into an impassioned smile. Even the people who have seen Garfield. While over the last few years Murray has turned himself into a refined, dramatic leading man with his turns in Lost In Translation, Broken Flowers, and Hyde Park On Hudson, it’s comedy where he originally won all of our hearts. But when and where has Bill Murray been at his most amusing? Well, to celebrate the release of Rock The Kasbah, here’s a look at Bill Murray’s funniest roles. 10.
