Iranian Drama “There is No Evil” just won the Golden Bear at the Berlin 2020 film festival.
could this emerge as a contender for best international feature if it’s Iran’s submission and builds enough buzz? Iran has won the Oscar twice with Asghar Farhadi’s A Separation and The Salesman.February 28, 2020 at 3:42 pm #1203364252
those walk outs were amazing once Polanski was announced as the winner, shame that convicted rapists are still celebrated.February 22, 2020 at 11:49 am #1203356672
BREAKING: Per @RichardRushfield the budget on Scorsese’s KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON has soared to $225M (not far off from The Irishman, mind you) & Paramount is getting nervous (even with Leo starring), and Marty wants to move it to Netflix (which doesn’t know how to say “no”).
so this might end up with Netflix after all lol
though I don’t see why Marty needs 225M for a period thriller piece when Tarantino re-created 1960s Hollywood with a stardom on par with this for only 100M. (unless there’s some de-aging VFX involved, which in that case sike..)February 22, 2020 at 5:48 am #1203356246
It could potentially be a contender for both him and Marion Cotillard. But it is entirely sung through so a lot will depend on how that goes down. Les Mis got nods for sung through performances so we’ll see. Cannes will tell us!
Annette has been on my radar for a while but I doubt it would actually win anything big at Cannes cus it will be in english (it’s Leos Carax’s english language debut). and the Cannes Jury usually prefer awarding non-english speaking movies. though it will def start building buzz if it’s great and Amazon will market the shit out of it in the FallFebruary 21, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203355467
Dune is not going to be Blade Runner 2049. Enough with those comparisons just because it’s the same director and sci fi. And it’s going to get way better reviews than Eternals.
is there any recent comp for a movie like Dune? I guess maybe Mad Max Fury Road but I doubt Dune will be as action heavy and that didn’t win anything above the line.February 21, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203355452
Onward reviews are out, and it sounds like they’re pretty lukewarm (which isn’t good for Pixar standards). 79% on RT/65 on MC. this could very well be this year’s Frozen 2.
Disney still have Soul & Raya and the last dragon next.February 20, 2020 at 7:29 am #1203353520
Netflix thirsty for that awards cloutFebruary 20, 2020 at 7:26 am #1203353512
