Oscars: Nominees Banking on the Biggest Box-Office Bump

Oscars: Nominees Banking on the Biggest Box-Office Bump
Now that this year's Oscar nominations have been unveiled, which of the nine best picture contenders stand to benefit at the box office?

Two of the nine have nothing to gain beyond the honor of being nominated: Jordan Peele's innovative horror-thriller Get Out and Christopher Nolan's World War II epic Dunkirk, both of which are long gone from theaters.

Conversely, those primed for the biggest boost include Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water, which picked up a total 13 nominations, the most of any film; Luca Guadagnino's Call Me by Your Name; and Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread. That's because...

James Ivory on His Film Legacy and Adapting 'Call Me by Your Name'

James Ivory on His Film Legacy and Adapting 'Call Me by Your Name'
At 89, James Ivory isn't done yet.

The American filmmaker, whose collaboration with producer Ismail Merchant (and their longtime screenwriter, the late Ruth Prawer Jhabvala) made Merchant Ivory a byword for classy cinema in the mid-1980s and early '90s, has staged a dramatic late-career comeback with Call Me by Your Name, which Ivory wrote and co-produced for director Luca Guadagnino.

The touching gay love story, based on Andre Aciman's acclaimed 2007 novel, earned Ivory his first-ever BAFTA nomination for best adapted screenplay, and it's a near certainty he'll pick up his first Oscar nomination in the same category, adding to...

DGA Awards: Do Its Diverse Nominations Point to Oscar Noms?

There was little doubt that Dunkirk's Christopher Nolan and The Shape of Water's Guillermo del Toro would land nominations for the top honor at the 70th DGA Awards, which were announced Thursday — both are veteran, widely celebrated auteurs who made hugely ambitious, large-scale films in 2017 — and indeed they were nominated. But, heading into the announcement, there were big question marks about who would claim the other three slots.

Among the contenders were the legendary Steven Spielberg for the high-profile The Post, Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino for critics' darling Call Me by Your Name and Sean...

BAFTA Awards: Noms Boost British Flicks, Shut Out 'The Post'

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced its nominees for the 71st BAFTA Awards early Tuesday morning, and, as is usually the case, British films did better with their own constituents than they have done stateside, while some high-profile contenders from America were snubbed altogether.

Darkest Hour, Joe Wright's profile of Winston Churchill at the outset of World War II, landed one of five best film noms — alongside Call Me by Your Name, Dunkirk, The Shape of Water (which scored a field-leading 12 noms) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri — and Gary Oldman, who plays Churchill,...

3 Billboards and Big Little Lies Top the 75th Annual Golden Globes

3 Billboards and Big Little Lies Top the 75th Annual Golden Globes
The Me Too movement was on the minds of everybody in attendance for the 75th annual Golden Globes ceremony and many of the top awards went to timely movies and TV shows that reflect the tumultuous last year. Sexual harassment and assault were the main themes of 2017 and many wondered how one of the first major awards shows would handle the controversy. Host Seth Meyers immediately addressed the elephant in the room by saying, "It's 2018 - marijuana is finally allowed and sexual harassment finally isn't," summing up the sense of change in the air.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association highlighted some favorites of 2017 and sent others home empty handed in a surprising turn of events. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Lady Bird, and The Shape of Water all took home the top prizes, while other critical favorites such as Dunkirk, Get Out, Call Me by Your Name, and The Post

These partners in crime were back in the driver’s seat!

Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon took the stage on Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California, and couldn’t help but reminisce about how things haven’t changed for women since Thelma & Louise hit theaters in 1991.

Davis, 61, smiled as she excitedly told Sarandon, 71, “Susan, they love that we fixed everything,” referring to the crowd’s applause as they prepared to announce the winner for best actor in a motion picture.

“Um, yeah, I don’t think we fixed quite everything, actually, it’s been 25 years,

Golden Globes 2018 Predictions: What Will Win, What Should Win

Golden Globes 2018 Predictions: What Will Win, What Should Win
This time last year, we kicked off our annual Golden Globes predictions with a warning: The Golden Globes are impossibly hard to predict. And we didn't even know the half of it: From labeling Get Out a comedy to snubbing Twin Peaks almost entirely, this year's suite of nominees is wild even by the the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's already screwy standards.

But the best way to chart the Globes – and any awards slate, really – is to treat them like a dog show and judge the contestants by the standard of the breed.

Screeners of three Oscar contenders have leaked to piracy networks

Piracy collective Hive-CM8 has leaked copies of three of this year’s Oscar contenders to file-sharing networks, reportedly ripping the movies from awards screener DVDs.

Torrent Freak is reporting that Grega Gerwig’s Lady Bird, Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name and Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya all appeared on online pirate sites, ready to be viewed illegally. The group has recently claimed responsibility for leaking Louis C.K.’s I Love You Daddy, as well as Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying.

Apparently Hive-CM8 has said that it will be leaking more awards contenders in the coming weeks, but has guaranteed that it will not release Star Wars: The Last Jedi to piracy networks.

In a year filled with hacking and online leaks, the biggest being the HBO scandal from earlier this year, this report is all the more troubling, for it appears that the risks associated

Here Are the 20 Best Asian Films of 2017 Part 2

2017 was a strange year for Asian cinema, after the impressive 2016, where “Godzilla”, “Your Name”, Nikkatsu’s new Roman films and the latest films by Park Chan-wook, Na Hong-jin and “Train to Busan” turned the interest of the international audience towards Se Asia, once more.

2017 has been a much more low-key year for Asian films however, giving the opportunity for productions from other Asian countries to shine, in contrast to 2016, when S.Korean and Japanese films dominated this list. So, without further ado, here are the 20 Best Asian Films of 2017, always with a focus on diversity, in random order.

(Some of the films premiered in 2015, but I took the liberty to include them, since they circulated, mostly, in 2017).

Small Talk (Huang Hui-chen, Taiwan)

The documentary thrives on realism: no additional footage for the purpose of visual treatment, no dramatization, and in general, no elements that serve the purpose of beautifying the film.

Australian Animation ‘Arkie’ Sold to Vision for China Release
Australian-Canadian animated feature “Arkie” has been acquired by Vision Film Entertainment for distribution in China. Vision says it expects to release the film in 10,000 Chinese theaters.

The 2017 Animated Contenders: "In This Corner of the World"

by Tim Brayton

Of the 26 animated features submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science for Oscar consideration last month, a respectable five – just the thinnest hair under 20% - came from Japan. Ignoring Oscar eligibility, and throwing Your Name. on the pile (it was a 2016 Oscar hopeful but its commercial U.S. release came this spring), and 2017 has been a pretty fine year for anime in the United States.

Out of all those films, I humbly submit that the best one is In This Corner of the World, director Sunao Katabuchi's adaptation of a 2007-'09 manga series by Fumiyo Kōno. It's actually the story's second cinematic incarnation: in 2011, it was adapted in live-action. I haven't seen that film, but even so, I cannot fathom how it could be anything but a pale echo of the Katabuchi film: In This Corner of the World is an extraordinary triumph

Studio Ghibli Fan Recreates the Food From The Anime Films of Hayao Miyazaki in Real Life

Food is prevalent throughout Studio Ghibli films. It helps tell the story and it looks delicious. One fan decided it looked so delicious they had to make it. Instagram user en93kitchen has posted several photos of the food from these films alongside photos of the same dish in real life. Those must taste so good. I know I want to try these noodles from Ponyo. While a lot of the food appears to be based on Studio Ghibli films, other anime are referenced including the popular Your Name. What food from Studio Ghibli gets you salivating the most?

Japanese Animation Market Surpassed 2 Trillion Yen in 2016
The Japanese animation market surpassed 2 trillion yen ($17.7 billion) for the first time last year, fueled by the runaway success of “Your Name” and international sales.

In its annual survey of the industry, the Association of Japanese Animations (Aja) said the market had grown by nearly 10% from 1.82 trillion yen in 2015 to 2 trillion yen in 2016. In 2014, the market was worth 1.63 trillion yen.

The association has conducted its survey since 2009. The new survey looked at almost 100 animation productions from January to December 2016.

The survey looked at nine different categories, including TV animation, theatrical animation, video, online distribution, merchandise, live entertainment, international expansion and more. The Japanese box office recorded revenue of 66.3 billion yen in 2016, with “Your Name” and “In This Corner of the World” as big hits. That was a 41.1% increase from the previous year.

Additionally, international expansion saw 31.6% growth and live entertainment 29.5% growth from the previous year.
