in theaters April 6, 2018


Ava DuVernay started production on A Wrinkle In Time, adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s iconic children’s novel. is set to open on April 6, 2018 — the weekend following Easter Sunday. Given how many kids are apt to be off on spring break, Disney found that the post-Easter frame was a lucrative one this year as they played The Jungle Book to a domestic gross of $364 million, currently 2016’s fourth highest-grossing title.

HERE THERE AND EVERYWHERE
Summer 2018


‘Here There & Everywhere’ [HTAE]a landmark documentary film project, supported by The Cavern Club, The Beatles Story Museum, The Hard Days Night Hotel, The Fest For Fans, Abbey Road on the River and The British Beatles Fan Club, and many others. HTAE will be a 80-minute ‘love letter’ spanning the band’s history as seen through the eyes, felt through the hearts and as told through the memories of the fans . . . from those who organize the fan festivals and tribute concerts... the Club and event runners who keep the fans together, the memorabilia collectors who amaze and delight with their rare and unseen photographs and films. . . to the authors who continue to breathe fresh life into the never-ending magical mystery tour.

HTAE pays homage to the global family, showcasing their contributions towards fueling The Beatles eternal flame. HTAE is The Beatles story as told by the fans and an important part of The Beatles future archive legacy! As part of the ongoing production the producers will also encourage artists and animators around the world to include their Beatles-inspired interludes in the film.
But perhaps most importantly, if fans have a story to tell, then they can get in touch and the producers will look to include contributors and their stories in the film. Many artists and bands will pack HTAE with performances. And special licensed recordings will also be produced, featuring musicians and vocalists from around the world, creating a global Beatles soundtrack. The film will also feature a “surprise” finale, to be announced over the months ahead.

Simon Weitzman is the film’s director and the publisher, producer and author on three recent Beatles books 


Sundance Film Festival Film Highlights
Jan 19-29, 2017


I’ll get to report from Park City Utah myself. I actually had a journalist who said I could share her room this year, but I still couldn’t swing the airfare and working temp, I don’t get vacation time so…

Sundance Film Festival started in 1985. This year it received 13,782 film submissions. A combination of 188 features & short films were chosen to be screened at 16 Theater Venues. This year Sundance is presenting 71 Panel & Music Events.

Robert Redford opened the press conference saying that Sundance is not political (seeing as the filmmakers are mainly progressive liberals, yet it takes place in Utah, a Red state, therefore, Sundance tries to be neutral. However, an offshoot of the Women’s March took place right on Main Street on Saturday with festival attendees participating. Of course this is something Redford had no control over, but the main opening night films was…

Al Gore’s sequel to 2006 An Inconvenient Truth about the issues of climate change, this is called An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power with Al Gore in attendance. It focuses on Gore being instrumental in getting the Paris Agreement adopted in late 2015, in which major countries agreed to work toward measures that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions. And the movie went back in and made edits after Trump won to address his disbelief on Global warming.


The other opening night film was I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore directorial debut for an actor Macon Blair. Netflix picked up the distribution. Melanie Lynskey is a woman bored with her life as a nurse’s assistant until one day she gets robbed, the police are useless, so you know that Find Me app you can put on your phone, when hers starts to ping, she enlists the help of her neighbor played by Elijah Wood to track down her stuff. It’s being voted on under dramatic competition, but it’s more of a black comedy.


There was a bidding war to acquire distribution rights of Ingrid Goes West, first-time feature for director Matt Spicer, who co-wrote the film with David Branson Smith.  A24 films, Netflix and Neon films competed with Neon beating out the other two. Ingrid Goes West is also a dark, dramatic comedy that follows a troubled young woman named Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza "Parks & Recreation") who becomes obsessed with the Instagram account of a social media influencer named Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen) goes to meet her and wreaks havoc in her life.

Looks like Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea) is still front and center going into 2017 this time in a movie called A Ghost Story by writer/director David Lowery. It’s not horror, it’s a ghostly Indie drama where the ghost (Affleck) actually wears a sheet with 2 holes throughout most of the movie, like an old fashioned Halloween costume, yet surprisingly I've read it doesn't make the film ridiculous. His wife is played by Rooney Mara, but I understand she’s not in it for long. It’s supposed to be a very haunting movie (pun intended). A24 films acquired distribution before Sundance.



The Big Sick / U.S.A. World Premiere (1/20) (Director: Michael Showalter, Screenwriters: Emily V. Gordon, Kumail Nanjiani) — Based on the real-life courtship of Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and his now wife Emily Gordon, as they fall in love, struggle with cultures clashes and Emily's mysterious illness. Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, Ray Romano, Anupam Kher.  Distributor Amazon Studios


Before I Fall / U.S.A. World Premiere ( 1/21) (Director: Ry Russo-Young, Screenwriter: Maria Maggenti) Samantha Kingston has everything. Then after one fateful night, she wakes up with no future at all. Trapped into reliving the same day over and over (a la Groundhogs Day), she begins to question just how perfect her life really was. Cast: Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Kian Lawley, Elena Kampouris, Diego Boneta. Open Road Films.


Wind River (premiere 1/21) a thriller directed and written by Taylor Sheridan (screenwriter Sicario & Hell or High Water). Jeremy Renner is a wild life tracker who finds the raped and murdered body of a teenage Native American girl from an Indian reservation in Wyoming. Elizabeth Olsen, plays the FBI agent sent to investigate the case. It's supposed to be more a show down between local cops, reservation police, FBI and armed contractors, not a romance.
The Weinstein Company acquired rights in Cannes, then drop it early in January and picked it up again at Sundance.


Beatriz At Dinner / U.S.A. World Premiere (1/23) (Director: Miguel Arteta, Screenwriter: Mike White) — Beatriz, an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, who has become a health practitioner. Doug is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same. Cast: Salma Hayek, John Lithgow. No distribution yet.



 Mudbound U.S.A. World Premiere (1/21) Director Dee Rees Cast:Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell and Mary J. Blige.distinguishes itself from so many other stories of domestic racism and struggle. Rees keeps the drama human, avoiding many of the more common signifiers of the period in terms of a more contained, intimate look at how dependent so many were on one another during wartime, and how quickly hierarchies were re-established once the threat of global destruction no longer dominated the day-to-day conversation.



I like this girl, Alicia Malone reporting from Sundance, she's adorable, reminds me of a prettier Emily Blunt, and her videos have been informative and well edited for on the fly.  This is her vid from Day 4 of the festival:

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
