  2. A man has pleaded guilty to costing the film industry several millions of pounds after operating websites which allowed people to view content illegally. The offenses, alleged to have taken place between 2008 and 2013 and initially denied at a hearing in February, involve websites including the now-defunct FastPassTV. In May 2011, police reported seizing £83,000 and computer equipment following a raid in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The operation was a culmination of an investigation carried out by the Hollywood-funded anti-piracy group Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT). By the end of the month more details began to emerge, with TorrentFreak sources confirming that an operator of video streaming site known as ‘FastPassTV’ had been arrested. With hundreds of thousands of daily visitors the site was a significant player in the streaming market. However, FastPassTV did not store any content of its own, instead linking to movies hosted elsewhere. “Fast Pass TV does not host, store, or distribute any of the videos listed on the site and only link to user submitted content that is freely available on the Internet,†a notice on the website read. Somewhat typically the case dragged on through the legal system and it took more than four years to come to court. However, the case was more complex than it first appeared. At his arraignment in February 2015, Paul Mahoney from Carnhill, Londonderry, was not only charged with offenses connected with FastPassTV but also BedroomMedia, a discussion and linking forum he also operated. It’s alleged that the man generated £82,390 in advertising revenue from the criminal operation of both sites. Mahoney was also charged with two further offenses of conspiring with individuals known online as ‘Hunter Grubbs’ and ‘ADigitalOrange’ to defraud the movie industry. The 28-year-old pleaded not guilty to all charges and was bailed to appear at a later date. This week, however, Mahoney was back in court with an apparent change of heart, pleading guilty to all four charges. In what’s being described as the first prosecution of its type in Northern Ireland, Mahoney was re-arraigned Monday. He pleaded guilty to a charge that between April 2008 and May 2011 he conspired with others to operate websites which allow the public to view copyrighted movies without permission from rightsholders. Mahoney also pleaded guilty to a charge of generating £82,390 in advertising revenue between April 2010 and April 2013 from this websites FastPassTV and BedroomMedia. Finally, the 28-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge of conspiring with ‘Hunter Grubbs’ and ‘ADigitalOrange’ between May 2011 and April 2013. “Paul Mahoney operated websites over a number of years which knowingly provided illegal access to thousands of films, generating significant income for himself and causing the film industry millions of pounds of loses,†Kieron Sharp, Director General of FACT, informs TorrentFreak. Unusually, however, there will be no claim for compensation. FACT hopes that Mahoney’s prosecution alone will send a clear message to others thinking of embarking on the same line of business. “Websites of this kind cause untold harm to the UK’s creative industries. We hope that this prosecution will serve as a deterrent to others engaging in this type of criminality, and look forward to Mr Mahoney’s sentencing on 25th August,†Sharp concludes. https://torrentfreak.com/man-pleads-guilty-to-costing-film-industry-millions-through-piracy-150616/

  4. The first teaser trailer for AMY launched today. From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (Senna), AMY tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse - in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. A once-in-a-generation talent and a pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense, Amy wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most original and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy's troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27. Directed by Asif Kapadia (Senna, The Warrior) and produced by James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through The Gift Shop) through On The Corner Films, AMY is released in the UK by Altitude Film Distribution. AMY is in UK cinemas July 3, 2015. Running Time: 123mins www.AmyFilm.co.uk @AmyFilmUK #AmyFilm https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=A97-pQJD6Hw
  5. Few scares and no Daniel Radcliffe in this WWII-era sequel to 2012's surprise horror hit. Scott Foundas Chief Film Critic @foundasonfilm The ectoplasmic bitch is back, but Harry Potter is nowhere to be found in “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,†a handsomely made but dramatically inert and not very scary sequel to 2012’s surprise-hit ($127 million worldwide) Edwardian chiller. A talkier, more drawn-out affair than its spare, elegant predecessor, and minus Daniel Radcliffe’s impressive lead performance, this second helping of imperiled-child ooga-booga from the revivified Hammer horror factory will be hard pressed to scare off the competition from several robust holiday holdovers (“The Hobbit,†“Into the Woods,†“Unbrokenâ€) when it materializes in theaters this weekend. Based on a 1983 novella by British horror author Susan Hill, which had previously served as the basis for a long-running West End stage drama, the first “Woman in Black†movie mined surprising riches from its rather familiar tale of a foggy, boggy British coastal town haunted by a vengeful spirit with a yen for funereal couture and for the souls of innocent young children (payback for the loss of her own young son decades prior). What that movie lacked in originality it made up for in thickly creepy atmosphere and a willingness to let large chunks of the story unfold without any dialogue, as Radcliffe’s widowed solicitor gradually came to realize he wasn’t alone in the old dark manor, Eel Marsh House, to prepare for a sale. The precise alchemy of an effective movie scare is nearly as elusive as the formula for a funny joke, but “The Woman in Black†managed to nail it — so much so that one was willing to overlook some of the narrative’s more glaring leaps in logic, such as why the good people of Crythin Gifford didn’t merely pack up and move to another village rather than watching their young’uns picked off one by one over the years. (Perhaps it was a bad real-estate market.) Directed by James Watkins with a lot of obvious love for classic haunted-house fare like “The Haunting†and “The Innocents,†it was a movie that knew how to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Watching “Angel of Death,†they only occasionally quiver. The time is now 1941, and Crythin Gifford lies seemingly abandoned, save for the requisite scary old blind man and, of course, its resident restless spirit. Yet somehow, this literal and figurative ghost town is deemed the perfect place to house a dozen preteen schoolchildren who are being evacuated from London at the height of the Blitz. And so they go, chaperoned by their kindly teacher Ms. Parkins (appealing newcomer Phoebe Fox) and stern headmistress (Helen McCrory), out of the frying pan and into a new kind of (hell)fire. The idea of setting a horror story against the real-life horrors of England during WWII certainly holds promise, but if the first “Woman in Black†was laudable for its slow-burn intensity, “Angel of Death†is more of a slow lukewarm. In fact, nothing much happens at all for the first hour of the new movie (which was written by Jon Croker, from a story by Hill herself), aside from a few floorboards creaking, doors slamming and decrepit wind-up toys being brought mysteriously back to life. It’s clear that the Woman in Black (aka Jennet Humfrye) is stirring again, but boy does she take her sweet time about making a full-fledged appearance. Drawn to the darkness that lurks in the souls of the living, Humfrye here takes a particular interest in Edward (Oaklee Pendergast), a shy, recently orphaned boy who has retreated from the world, and in Ms. Parkins, whose ever-cheerful smile all too predictably masks a shameful secret from her own past. And because there’s always room for one more at Eel Marsh House’s group therapy table, “Angel of Death†also offers up a potential love interest for its bachelorette schoolteacher in the form of Harry Burnstow, a handsome (but traumatized) Army pilot played by “War Horse†star Jeremy Irvine with such comically square-jawed stoicism that he inadvertently recalls Robert Hays in the “Airplane!†movies. Helming his second feature (after 2009’s well-received “The Scouting Book for Boysâ€), Tom Harper is one of that breed of British craftsmen directors for whom bombed-out period streets, smoky railway platforms and soggy marshes are what a bikini-clad girl in a Ferrari is to Michael Bay, and those visual gifts get a valuable aid here from cinematographer George Steel, who works from an even more monochromatic palette than the previous film, suggesting that wartime England was a virtually colorless world, save for articles of women’s clothing (which pop from the meticulously drab frames with an almost Technicolor intensity). It isn’t just color that’s been drained from the movie, though. As the body count (finally) begins to rise and panic sets in, Harper manages a couple of reasonably jolting scares, mostly through shock edits and sudden shrieks on the soundtrack — or surges of the musical score credited to composers Marco Beltrami, Marcus Trumpp and Brandon Roberts. But a truly memorable ghost story needs more than that, and “The Woman in Black†found it in Radcliffe’s anguished grace, and in the grief-stricken townsfolk living out their cursed existence. Nothing in “Angel of Death†tugs nearly so effectively at the heart — or, more importantly, the jugular.

  6. The BFI London Film Festival 2014 came to a close last night with a star-studded gala premiere for David Ayer’s visceral World War II movie Fury, starring Brad Pitt. Fury follows military leader Wardaddy (Pitt) as he commands an American tank crew through Nazi Germany in the final months of the conflict. When one of his crew dies, Wardaddy is lumbered with trigger-shy Private Ellison (Logan Lerman), who must learn his stripes in the field of battle. So far, so genre. However, with the director behind End Of Watch in the hotseat, Fury is far from conventional. Struggling to be heard over the screams of the gathered fans, co-star Jon Bernthal – who plays loose cannon crew member Grady 'Coon-Ass' Travis – told Empire that the film is more like a “family drama†than a traditional war movie. “It’s about a family travelling through hell in a metal box and we had to create that family,†he said. “I think I play the crazy, testosterone-filled, fearful teenager who’s always acting out.†The film’s central family is anchored around Brad Pitt, who calls the shots as Wardaddy. He is a respected leader who wields a great deal of power over the men under his control. Some of that power was on show on the red carpet too, with the Moneyball man’s arrival met by a chorus of cheers and whoops. “I had to inflict a lot of discipline,†Pitt told Empire, in between signing autographs and taking selfies with fans. “I love these guys. We got really tight to the process, but there is an interesting dynamic if I’m responsible for their morale in knowing when to pick them up and when to put them down. It was constantly in play throughout the shoot.“ The family metaphor was a common theme for the film’s cast, with Shia LaBeouf describing his role as like a “mother with a gunâ€. He said: “They were my sons. You get to know your boys. You take care of them a lot.†Fury was shot primarily in Britain, with the cast and crew subjected to a punishing production schedule, courtesy of what writer-director David Ayer called a “cocktail†of “non-traditional†methods. He chose to push particularly hard with the youngest member of the cast. “I just wanted Logan to feel that terrible first day of school kind of experience that he has in Fury,†said Ayer. “I put as much stress on him as I could so that you can just see it in his eyes.†The Fury premiere marks the final night of the London Film Festival. Closing the event, CEO of the BFI, Amanda Nevill stressed the breadth of young British talent on show in this year’s programme, with 39 of the festival’s films originating from Britain. She said: “You have to ignite that spark and that passion and let filmmakers have a go at it. Making films is a very expensive, complicated gig. These are films that have competed against the best the world can throw at us. You sit there and look at these films and it makes you really proud to be British.†Fury, written and directed by David Ayer, also stars Michael Peña, Jason Isaacs and Alicia Von Rittberg. It will be released nationwide on October 24. Reporting by Tom Beasley and Joshua Hammond Add Rep and Leave a feedback Reputation is the green button in the down right corner on my post
  7. Coldplay have today announced the 24 November release of a new concert film and live album, Ghost Stories Live 2014, on DVD/CD, Blu-ray/CD and digital formats. The release is available to pre-order via Coldplay.com and iTunes now. An exclusive trailer can also be viewed at Coldplay.com. Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the Ghost Stories Live 2014 film documents the band's unique performance of the Ghost Stories album to a small handful of fans in March 2014, two months prior to the album's release. Shot in a custom-built amphitheatre at Sony Studios, Los Angeles, the ground-breaking production sets the band's performance against stunning 360-degree and overhead imagery. Said Chris Martin: 'The Ghost Stories show at Sony Studios was a very special moment for our band. The magic theatre built by our incredible crew with the 360 screens was literally a dream come true. And it was the first time anyone outside of our studio had heard the new songs. This film is basically our original vision for the Ghost Stories album.' Parts of the performance were first broadcast in May 2014 as a Coldplay TV Special by major broadcasters around the world, including NBC in the US and Sky Arts in the UK (where the film has already been nominated for Best Live Coverage at this year's UK Music Video Awards). But Ghost Stories Live 2014 is the first time that the performance has been sequenced as originally conceived: a visual representation of the Ghost Stories album. The release also contains an exclusive Ghost Stories live album, with audio recorded at the band's rapturously-received shows in London, Sydney, Paris, Cologne, New York and Los Angeles between April and July 2014. The package is completed by eight music videos from the Ghost Stories era, including two never-before-seen films for B-sides All Your Friends and Ghost Story plus the exclusive Extended Director's Cut of the Magic video (with a brand new cameo from Peter Fonda). Ghost Stories Live 2014 is Coldplay's first DVD / Blu-ray release since the Grammy-nominated Live 2012 concert film. DVD/Blu-ray Ghost Stories Live 2014 1. Always In My Head 2. Magic 3. Ink 4.

  8. Global pop superstars One Direction broke more records this weekend with the screening of their Where We Are Tour in cinemas across 78 countries in an unprecedented 3,400 screens worldwide. Arts Alliance worked with Sony Music, Syco, Modest! and producing partners Fulwell to bring One Direction ' Where We Are ' The Concert Film to the big screen and unite the world's biggest band with the biggest ever Event Cinema audience across one weekend. Over the weekend the film trended as the number one global topic on Twitter and early indications are that 1.2 million tickets will have been sold worldwide, making it the highest attended Event Cinema release of all time. This puts the film on course to smash previous Event Cinema records with an estimated $15m global weekend Box Office. With an international per screen average of $4,500, results around the world have shown the true pulling power of One Direction. North America Box Office will have generated an estimated $3.4m for the bank holiday weekend becoming one of the most successful Event Cinema releases across the region. UK & Ireland Box Office is estimated to hit $1.9m doubling previous Event Cinema records in Ireland & beating all previous UK concert genre Event Cinema releases. Records continued across other European territories. In Italy, the film is the number one Event Cinema release of all time, with $1.7m Box Office and 120,000 fans packing cinemas to a per-screen average of $6,000, topping the overall movie film charts that weekend. Portugal sold out cinemas in less than 3 hours with 33 screens generating over 16,000 ticket sales and a per-screen average over $6,200. Elsewhere, combined Latin America sales are expected to hit 300,000 tickets, breaking previous Event Cinema records in the region. Across the Middle East and Asia, records have also fallen with Japan breaking all time concert Event Cinema grosses with $835,000 Box Office across 107 sites and a spectacular per screen average of $7,800. Filmed live at Milan's iconic San Siro stadium on the Italian leg of their record-breaking 2014 tour, the film invited One Direction fans to experience the concert first-hand, featuring all of their biggest hits plus a 22 minute never-before-seen backstage interview. The film will be coming to DVD from 28th November 2014. Add Rep and Leave a feedback Reputation is the green button in the down right corner on my post
  9. Paul Feig has been discussing his plans for his forthcomingGhostbusters film, which he has confirmed as being a total franchise reboot. “I thought, well, what if we just make it new?†says Feig of how he approached the task. “It’s not coming into the world that existed before. It’s always hard if the world has gone through this big ghost attack, how do you do it again?†“I wanted to come into our world where there’s talk of ghosts but they’re not really credible, and so what would happen in our world if this happened today… Everything is up for grabs right now.†“I look at this the same way a superhero movie launches where it’s always fun to see, like, what are they going to do with the costumes this time? What are they going to do with the hardware this time? It’s not going to be, here is the exact same stuff. It’s also not going to go, screw you if you like that stuff, it’s all completely different.†And regarding recasting the original Ghostbusters as female characters, Feig is confounded by the notion that it should be such a talking point. “I really cannot believe we’re still having this conversation,†says the director. “Some people accused it of kind of being a gimmick and it’s like, it would be a gimmick if I wasn’t somebody whose brain doesn’t automatically go to like, ‘I want to just do more stuff with women.’†“I just find funny women so great. For me it’s just more of a no-brainer. I just go, ‘what would make me excited to do it?’ I go, ‘four female Ghostbusters to me is really fun.’ I want to see that dynamic.†What do you make of Feig's comments? Tell us, below!

  10. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 2013 theatrical release, Frozen, has now grossed nearly $1.3 billion worldwide in theaters. The Mouse House has already crossed over select characters from the movie on the ABC live-action series Once Upon a Time, but a full-length movie sequel to the 3D musical fairy tale isn’t currently in the works (officially, anyway)… though a short film followup is. Disney announced development on a Frozen Broadway stage musical near the beginning of 2014, but this is the first confirmation we’ve gotten about the property being continued in some form on the big screen. Walt Disney Animation Studios has revealed, via a press release, that an animated short titled “Frozen Fever†is currently being put together, under the supervision of Oscar-winning Frozen screenwriter and co-director Jennifer Lee, along with her Frozen co-helmsman Chris Buck. Frozen‘s Oscar-winning songwriting husband and wife duo, Kirsten Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, have written a new original song that will be featured in “Frozen Feverâ€. Frozen voice actors Kristen Bell (Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and Josh Gad (Olaf) are expected to reprise their respective Frozen roles in the developing short – officially summarized as follows. In “Frozen Fever,†it’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk. There’ve been rumblings about Pixar making Toy Story 4 over the last few years, but thus far the animation studio has instead stuck to release short films set in theToy Story universe – allowing the studio to both keep that specific brand alive andoffer new imaginative stories featuring the beloved Toy Story characters. That is, without also having to deal with the expectations and/or potential blowback that a full-length movie could prompt (and having fewer creative restrictions to overcome, most likely). Point being, it seems that Disney is taking a similar approach to the Frozen property for now – which, frankly, sounds like a better idea than pressing ahead with Frozen 2. “Frozen Fever†is also being planned for a Spring 2015 release, which indicates that it could be attached to prints of director Kenneth Branagh’s live-actionCinderella - a fitting choice to launch what sounds like it could be a fun new adventure in the world of Frozen. We’ll continue to keep you posted on Frozen-related news in the future. http://screenrant.com/frozen-forever-short-film-release-date/
  11. There are plenty of great horror short films out there, including shorts like Mamaand Saw that went on to become feature length movies. Crowd-funding has opened up a whole new avenue to help filmmakers bring their spooky visions to life, and one recent Kickstarter success was short supernatural chiller Kadence, which successfully raised $18,000 for its production budget through donations. According to the synopsis, Kadence is centered on a young man called Kadin, who recently lost his mother and has a“damaging and complex†relationship with his father. Into his life of inner turmoil comes a seductive new neighbor, Marissa, who introduces Kadin to the idea of voodoo and offers him an ancient doll that she insists can work for either good or evil. In the hope of a brighter future, Kadin accepts the offer and uses the doll, but based on the new trailer for Kadence it doesn’t look like things go all that smoothly. The cast of Kadence includes Max Lloyd-Jones (Teen Wolf) as Kadin, Alyson Stoner (Step Up All In) as Marissa and Bailey Chase (Saving Grace) as Kadin’s father, Joel. Director Jacob Johnston has worked as visual development coordinator on a number of Marvel films, including Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron; along with some screenshots from Kadence, we also have some artwork for the film, created by Marvel Studios artists Jackson Sze and Anthony Francisco. Speaking in an interview with Media Mikes earlier this year, Johnston explained thatKadence became more character-driven than supernatural-based over the course of its development, and that he wanted to “[bring] back the terrifying elements of visceral human interaction and unraveling – evocative of movies like The Haunting, Silence of the Lambs and Let the Right One In.†When asked if the short could be considered a pitch for a full-length movie, Johnston replied that there is “definitely a potential†for a feature-length version, but he “never wanted to see the project that way.†Kadence is currently in post-production and the Kickstarter page mentions a targeted mid-October release. You can follow the official Facebook page for updates. Let us know in the comments if the trailer for this horror short has left you interested to see more. http://screenrant.com/kadence-horror-short-trailer-images/
  12. Horror movies get remembered, legends never die. They just get endlessly rebooted instead. Take Leatherface, the current horror icon du jour whose mythos has been deemed ripe for recalibration; Hollywood has been tinkering with the character since the aughts, blundering through Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes before shifting him from an Ed Gein surrogate to a misunderstood anti hero in 2013′s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Meanwhile, Lionsgate made rumblings just last week about hunting down a scribe to put pen to paper on yet another possible update to his backstory. Turns out those rumblings were pretty serious. Flash forward to today, and now it sounds like the newly gestating film not only has a screenwriter, but it also has its title. Saddled with the straightforward moniker ofLeatherface, the picture’s screenwriting duties will be handled by newcomer Seth M. Sherwood. Millennium Films will provide the financing for production; given the studio’s history of co-producing with Lionsgate, it’s not unreasonable to guess that Leatherface will end up another joint effort between both companies. Word on these fresh developments comes from The Wrap. Apart from name and appellation, there’s not much else that the film’s producers are willing to talk about for the time being; that said, it’s crystal clear that the plan for Leatherface going forward will be to chronicle the chainsaw wielding maniac’s “early yearsâ€, which comes close to lining up with Lionsgate’s original statement of intent. But there’s a greater degree of ambiguity to Millennium’s phrasing than Lionsgate’s; if there existed any doubt over whether fans would be treated to an exploration of Jed Sawyer’s teenage ennui, now there should exist a good bit more. Leatherfacecould just be about a twenty something Jed, adrift as an emerging adult and trying to find his way in life from the business end of a chainsaw. Everyone knows how tough things can get when you’re out on your own in the real world for the first time. How much tougher can they get when you’re a vicious cannibal with innate psychotic urges? Alternately, Leatherface could end up going the Bates Motel route and bring audiences back to Jed’s teen years. This actually seems like the sounder choice; the notion that Leatherface settled on practicing human charcuterie for a living out of the blue seriously strains credulity. That’s saying something for a franchise has, since its inception in 1974, ballooned one serial killer’s criminal notoriety into a handful of movies each more over the top than the last. (Nothing in the series topsTexas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation for sheer weirdness.) So while details are being kept under lock and key, it seems safe to conjecture thatLeatherface will do for Jed Sawyer what A&E’s sleeper hit show has done for Norman Bates. Odds are, Jed’s upbringing will look a lot grimier, but it’s hard to imagine how the film will successfully fuse his coming of age with his penchant for turning people into barbeque. Maybe Sherwood, a recent addition to the “Blood List†(Tinseltown’s annual collection of unproduced horror scripts), has a neat hook for making the concept work. On the other hand, he might have a completely different idea up his sleeve, so take all of this well salted. We’ll keep you in the loop about Leatherface as more information becomes available. http://screenrant.com/texas-chainsaw-massacre-origins-leatherface-writer/
  13. The real-life story of gay activists who teamed up with striking miners against Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1980s Britain premiered at the Cannes film fest. British dramedy Pride is set to open Filmfest Hamburg on Sept. 25, organizers announced Wednesday. ‎ CBS Films previously acquired the U.S. rights to the film, which made its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and will start rolling it out in theaters on Sept. 19. The second feature from ‎British director Matthew Warchustells ‎the true story of how gay and lesbian activists helped striking U.K. miners in the 1980s when Margaret Thatcher ‎was Britain's prime minister. Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine and Andrew Scott lead the movie's cast. Hamburg festival director Albert Wiederspiel said: "It’s a real pleasure to be able to open with a film that’s not only hugely relevant on a socio-political level, but also moving, funny and full of twists! It’s a typically British film – in the best tradition of The Full Monty or The Commitments. And what provides a better counterpoint to the ever-sunny Hamburg than the rainy, but utterly lovable Wales?†Warchus is among those expected to attend the German premiere at the Hamburg festival. The director released his first feature in 1999 with Simpatico and had much success with musical and theatrical productions. Warchus will from 2015 take over as director of the Old Vic Theatre in London. Pride was shown at Cannes as the final film of the Director’s Fortnight section‎. It is scheduled for release in Germany on Oct. 30.‎
  14. The 67th edition of the Locarno Film Festival opens Wednesday, welcoming guests from all over the world to its idyllic lakeside setting in Switzerland. The fest is known for its laidback manner, encouraging attendees to get up close and personal with the filmmakers coming into town. The true star of the fest is the Piazza Grande, which hosts nightly outdoor screenings on one of the biggest screens in Europe for audiences of up to 8,000. The experience of watching a film outdoors on a summer night with thousands of other cinema lovers creates an immersive experience that many attendees rave about. Artistic director Carlo Chatrian is not reinventing any wheel this year, but simply striving to offer top-notch programming from past to present. “The goal is always to have the very best films we can, the films that can better represent the world we live in," he told The Hollywood Reporter. Chatrian describes his lineup as a current “map of cinema,†marking important trends from different times and places in film history. Here are 5 stand-out events this year: TITANUS RETROSPECTIVE: ITALY’S GREATNESS REVISITED Titanus was Italy’s answer to MGM and 20th Century Fox, a monumental studio that has produced some of the country’s best films since the post-war era. Whether in production or distribution, it’s impossible to trace the history of Italian cinema without finding Titanus along every stop of the way. Films necessary to revisit include: Luigi Comencini’s Bread, Love and Dreams, Federico Fellini’sIl Bidone, Vittorio De Sica’s Two Women, Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard, and Dario Argento’sThe Bird with the Crystal Plumage, to be introduced by the maestro himself. Locarno marks the first stop for the retrospective, which will then travel on to numerous international stops, including the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York, the American Cinematheque and the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. A FAIR FIGHT FOR THE GOLDEN LEOPARD Locarno is bound to no festival politics, loyalty to directors or distributor agendas. “Compared to Cannes and Venice, the Locarno competition lineup is more daring,†says Chatrian. “We try to experiment on another scale with what you can do with cinema." He added: "I believe that cinema is the best tool man created to describe the society we live in. The directors we have this year in competition, represent in a very strong way the human condition.†Films not to be missed this year include Alex Ross Perry’s Sundance hit, Listen Up Philip, YuryBykov’s exploration of Russian corruption, The Fool, and Syllas Tzoumerkas’ black comedy/dramaA Blast, set during Greece’s financial crisis. VISIONARY CONVERSATIONS What would cinema be today without the iconic scenes of Danny riding his tricycle through The Shining’s Overlook Hotel, Rocky triumphantly running through the streets of Philadelphia, or Jake La Motta entering the ring in Raging Bull? They all have one thing in common, Garrett Brown and his invention of the Steadicam. With the Vision Award, Locarno puts equal weight on those behind the camera as those in front of it, honoring those whose innovations helped changed the history of filmmaking. Brown will conduct a masterclass, sharing the secrets behind the creation of his invention, the first of its kind to allow shooting fluid movement with a stable image. Brown holds over 50 patents for devices, including the wire-suspended Skycam, which has also changed the way major sporting events are filmed today. PUTTING THE FUN BACK INTO NETWORKING The Industry Days at Locarno have an unwritten no-suits policy. Yes, deals are made and films are sold, but the atmosphere is more about authentic networking inside an actual cinema. Each year the festival aims to bring together great minds to tackle the industry’s most pressing issues. StepIn is an exchange platform to discuss new strategies for distribution, exhibition and sales of independent cinema. Since 2012, StepIn has focused on the specific challenges of distribution and exhibition of arthouse cinema on a global scale. International sales agents, distributors, exhibitors and funders will be presented with a series of issues and then will break into small working groups to brainstorm possible solutions to test out in the years ahead. Some say it’s a better takeaway than a business card. POLANSKI’S LESSON IN CINEMA This year, Locarno has a wealth of honorees coming into town, including actors Juliette Binoche, Mia Farrow and Armin Mueller-Stahl. And toward the end of the fest, director Roman Polanski and his wife, actress Emmanuelle Seigner, will make a guest appearance to screen theirVenus in Fur. Polanski will be presented with a special Leopard award and will teach a masterclass for guests of the festival and the young filmmakers of the Locarno Summer Academy. The man behind Rosemary’s Baby, Chinatown and The Pianist, will share knowledge and insights learned over his 60-year plus career in what is guaranteed to be a packed house.
  15. A few days ago a Dutch movie director asked people to upload a copy of one of his older films onto The Pirate Bay. The filmmaker had become fed up with the fact that copyright issues made his work completely unavailable through legal channels. To his surprise, pirates were quick to deliver. Dutch movie director Martin Koolhoven sent out an unusual request on Twitter a few days ago. While many filmmakers fear The Pirate Bay, Koolhoven asked his followers to upload a copy of his 1999 film “Suzy Q†to the site. “Can someone just upload Suzy Q to The Pirate Bay?â€Koolhoven asked. The director doesn’t own all copyrights to the movie himself, but grew frustrated by the fact that his film is not available through legal channels. The TV-film, which also features the film debut of Game of Thrones actress Carice Van Houten, was paid for with public money but after the music rights expired nobody was able to see it anymore. The main problem is with the film’s music, which includes tracks from popular artists such as The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. This prevented the film from being released in movie theaters and on DVD, and the TV-network also chose not to extend the licenses for the TV rights. Since the music was no longer licensed it couldn’t be shown anymore, not even on the websites of the public broadcasters. “To me, it felt like the movie had died,†Koolhoven tells TorrentFreak. Hoping to bring it back to life, Koolhoven tweeted his upload request, and it didn’t take long before the pirates delivered. Within a few hours the first copy of the film was uploaded, and several more were added in the days that followed. “I had no idea the media would pick it up the way they did. That generated more media attention. At first I hesitated because I didn’t want to become the poster boy for the download-movement. All I wanted was for people to be able to see my film,†Koolhoven says. Unfortunately the first upload of the movie that appeared on The Pirate Bay was in very bad quality. So the director decided to go all the way and upload a better version to YouTube himself. “I figured it would probably be thrown off after a few days, due to the music rights issue, but at least people could see a half decent version instead of watching the horrible copy that was available on The Pirate Bay,†Koolhoven tells us. Interestingly, YouTube didn’t remove the film but asked the director whether he had the right to use the songs. Since this is not the case the money made through the advertisements on YouTube will go to the proper rightsholders. “We’re a few days later now and the movie is still on YouTube. And people have started to put higher quality torrents of Suzy Q on Pirate Bay. Even 720p can be found, I’ve heard,†Koolhoven notes. While the director is not the exclusive rightsholder, he does see himself as the moral owner of the title. Also, he isn’t shying away from encouraging others to download and share the film. In essence, he believes that all movies should be available online, as long as it’s commercially viable. It shouldn’t hurt movie theater attendance either, as that remains the main source of income for most films and the best viewing experience. “I know not everybody cares about that, but I do. The cinema is the best place to see movies. If you haven’t seen ‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ on the big screen, you just haven’t seen it,†Koolhoven says. In the case of Suzy Q, however, people are free to grab a pirated copy. “Everyone can go to The Pirate Bay and grab a copy. People are actually not supposed to, but they have my permission to download Susy Q,†Koolhoven said in an interview with Geenstijl. “If other people download the movie and help with seeding then the download time will be even more reasonable,†Koolhoven adds. http://torrentfreak.com/director-wants-film-pirate-bay-pirates-deliver-140724/
  16. Facebook has acquired LiveRail - a tech start-up that helps companies place more relevant ads in the videos that appear on their websites and apps. LiveRail also provides a real-time bidding platform for marketers looking to place ads on online videos. The firms did not reveal the financial terms, but some reports indicate that Facebook paid between $400m and $500m (£233m and £291m) to buy the firm. Online video advertising is forecast to grow robustly in the coming years. "More relevant ads will be more interesting and engaging to people watching online video, and more effective for marketers too," Brian Boland, vice president of ads product marketing and atlas at Facebook, said in a blog post. "Publishers will benefit as well, because more relevant ads will help them make the most out of every opportunity they have to show an ad." According to LiveRail, it delivers more than seven billion video ads per month. Growing importance The online and mobile ad sector has been growing rapidly in recent years. According to a study published in April, more than £1bn was spent on mobile ads in the UK alone in 2013, a rise of 93% on the previous year. Some other estimates suggest that online video advertising revenues are likely to hit $6bn in the US this year. As a result, a growing number of firms - especially social networking platforms such as Facebook and Twitter - have been looking at ways to attract more advertisers and tap into the sector's growth. Earlier this year, Facebook said it would start serving ads to third-party mobile apps via a new advertising network. Twitter, acquired MoPub mobile advertising exchange last year. MoPub acts as a mediation service, allowing marketers to manage the placement of ads across several networks, including Facebook's. Analysts said that given their large user base, social networks were likely to get a big share of this growing market. "It is no longer about saying, 'My ad was was seen by so many people,'" said Sanjana Chappalli, Asia-Pac head of LEWIS Pulse, a firm specialising in digital marketing. "But it is now about knowing who those people are and how they have responded to the information fed to them. "And on that front, social networks enjoy a tremendous advantage over everyone else." she added. Meanwhile, Google's AdMob and Apple's iAds platforms and several other smaller firms are also competing to provide the adverts shown on mobile phones and tablets. Millennial Media, Flurry and Nexage are among the firms promoting their own versions of "programmatic buying" - a way for firms to target their ads at a specific type of consumer via a chosen type of app at an appropriate time and geographic location.
  17. Pacific Rim 2 will monster stomp its way to theaters in a few years. But if you're drooling for details on where this Kaiju vs. Jaeger battle might lead, you'll be glad to know Guillermo del Toro is dropping hints already. Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Pacific Rim's writer/director/producer Guillermo del Toro confessed he and collaborators Travis Beacham and Zak Penn have been brainstorming on where this epic battle could go for a about a year and a half already. He expands: "I said to Zak, let’s keep kicking ideas till we find one that really, really turns the first movie on its ear, so to speak…It was hard to create a world that did not come from a comic book, that had its own mythology, so we had to sacrifice many aspects to be able to cram everything in the first movie. Namely, for example The Drift, which was an interesting concept. [Then there was] this portal that ripped a hole into the fabric of our universe, what were the tools they were using? And we came up with a really, really interesting idea. I don’t want to spoil it, but I think at the end of the second movie, people will find out that the two movies stand on their own. They’re very different from each other, although hopefully bringing the same joyful giant spectacle. But the tenor of the two movies will be quite different." The director didn't expand on how the tenor of Pacific Rim 2 might be different; however, he did confess that the sequel will bring in some new characters who will mirror the diversity shown in the first film. He says: "I’m hoping to bring the same idea I had in the first movie, that was to make it multicultural and humanistic as much as possible, to make characters from many nationalities or gender, to make them equal in the scope of the adventure, in the day-to-day of the adventure. So, we’re bringing a few characters that are new and hopefully doing good work managing those that survived the first movie." Fans of this growing franchise will be thrilled to learn that Guillermo del Toro will be in full-on Pacific Rim 2 mode in just six weeks. That's when a projected nine-month period of Kaiju and Jaeger designs will begin. By August, del Toro will be reuniting with his production design team to tackle the intimidating task of creating a new slew of robot warriors and massive monsters. But don't expect Cthulhu to make an appearance. The beast is associated with H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, which Del Toro has long been trying to adapt. But no matter how long that takes, he doesn't intend to throw the iconic creature into Pacific Rim's world, dismissing the idea with a chuckle. Pacific Rim 2 will open April 7, 2017.
  18. "It's simply not true," says longtime producer Frank Marshall of the theory that the Universal film was pushed back one year in order to accommodate Damon's return. Frank Marshall, the longtime producer of the Jason Bourne films, is shooting down speculation that Matt Damon will return as Bourne in the next installment dated July PHOTOS Behind the Scenes of THR's Jeremy Renner Cover Shoot "It's simply not true," Marshall tells THR, adding that the film will feature the Aaron Cross character played by Jeremy Renner in the 2012 installment, The Bourne Legacy. "[Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a summer movie, and if we don't start preproduction now, we can't make next summer. Therefore, it's a wise decision to move to 2016." PHOTOS Top 15 Highest-Grossing Threequelsof All Time The notion that Damon would return was floated by the Latino Review website and promptly picked up elsewhere. Damon has said previously that he would not reprise his role unless Paul Greengrassreturned as director. Greengrass directed the 2004 film, The Bourne Supremacy, and the 2007 installment, The Bourne Ultimatum, but clashed with longtime Bourne screenwriterTony Gilroy. Gilroy then replaced Greengrass on The Bourne Legacy with Renner as the star. That film grossed $276 million worldwide, a steep drop from the previous Bourne film with Damon, which grossed $443 million worldwide.
